Paula’s Choice Chemical Exfoliant


Ever had a stressful week where it play havoc on your skin? We all get to experience this phase of having horrible skin due to stress and it’s nothing we really want. All we need is a good soak in the bath and a facial product that will renew your skin to not only to look what it did at the beginning of the week but also looking better than ever.

Recently I’ve been researching into chemical exfoliants as I’ve seen a lot of you phrase them for giving you the perfect skin so I picked the best product for my skin condition in the hope it would do my skin wonders. Out of all the products of exfoliants I decided to purchase Paula’s Choice Resist Daily Pore-Refining Treatment. With the promise to help with acne breakouts, blackheads, enlarged pores, keratosis, pilaris, redness, rosacea and wrinkles I couldn’t really find a reason why I shouldn’t try it. It also caters to oily and combination skin types  and contains 2% BHA (Beta Hydroxy Acid) which is known to help with anti-aging and breakouts.

The product comes as a liquid which you dab onto a cotton pad and swipe lightly over your skin. My first application did tingle a little bit but after that there was no further feeling. After using the product for 2 or so weeks I can notice some difference. With acne taking over my face with the mixture of spots and red scarring I needed a product that would help reduce the redness and fade away my scars and I can honestly say this product has definitely done wonders for my skin. An added bonus is the fact that is doesn’t dry out your skin and it doesn’t feel tight.

My scars are fading, the redness has also faded and my face is looking clearer than ever. With having acne for over 5 years and now being an adult I need to sort out my skin and now is the time I really put my foot down.

I know this product does say it is to be applied daily but I tend to use it every other night just to give my skin a break, also I like to use my Dermalogica Overnight Clearing Gel on the rest days.

Have any of you lovelies tried a chemical exfoliant? If so, how does it work for you?
