Thank you for submitting your review! It will be reviewed by our staff before it is posted.Ik gebruik deze lotion al een paar jaar en merk echt veel verbetering: gladdere huid, minder onstekingen, minder puistjes. Echt een aanrader!Fijne lotion. Werkt goed voor mijn hormonale acne. Huid ziet er schoon en fris uit. Puistjes zijn verdwenen.Werkt goed. Huid wordt goed schoonI got this product in a time when my skin was suffering from a bad hormonal acne, with deep, inflamed pimples plus small white heads all over my chin and cheeks which eventually got also inflamed and painful. I started taking hormonal treatmeant and that helped a lot but this product is awesome. It exfoliates the skin and the next day my face had a nice glow plus the green tea extract calms down the irritation. Its not drying, but I do use hyaluronic acid serum before and I always follow up with a moisturiser.
Dank u wel Paula's choice :)
What are the key ingredients?
Green Tea Extract
Possess potent antioxidant and skin-soothing properties and has impressive research in terms of its many benefits for skin, including anti-ageing properties.
Can enhance the absorption of ingredients such as salicylic acid. It also has hydrating properties that can leave a smooth, dewy finish on skin.
Primarily an exfoliant, helping shed dead skin on the surface and inside the pore, therefore effective for reducing breakouts and blackheads. It also has soothing properties.
Aqua, Methylpropanediol (hydration), Butylene Glycol (hydration), Salicylic Acid (exfoliant), Polysorbate 20 (texture-enhancing), Camellia Oleifera (Green Tea) Leaf Extract (skin-soothing/antioxidant), Tetrasodium EDTA (stabilizer), Sodium Hydroxide (pH balancer).
Good to know before you start:
It is best to gradually build up use of a BHA product, starting to use it a couple of times a week only. If there is no adverse reaction, this may be increased to every other day at night and then, if you wish, every night. Some people increase use to twice daily (morning and night), but it really all depends on the condition of your skin. You need to experiment a bit to see what suits you best. During the day, always use a moisturiser with a broad-spectrum sunscreen rated SPF 30 or greater. Your skin will in fact be slightly more sensitive to sunlight when using an exfoliant, so the chance of sunburn and sun damage is slightly higher.
Is there another Paula's Choice product which is similar to the Clear Extra Strength Anti-Redness Solution Exfoliating 2% BHA?
Our Clear Extra Strength Anti-Redness Solution Exfoliating 2% BHA has the same formula to our Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant.
What is the difference between the Clear Regular Strength and Extra Strength Anti-Redness Exfoliating Solution?
The difference between the Clear Regular Strength and Extra Strength exfoliant is mainly in the texture and the rate of absorption. While both products contain 2% salicylic acid, the Regular Strength has an lighter, water-like formula and is milder with a slightly higher pH than the Extra Strength. The Extra Strength penetrates faster into the pores and has a lower pH which effectively battles stubborn break outs.
Refreshing cleansing gel gently removes excess oil, debris and pore-clogging impurities.
Restore the balance of your skin with this lightly hydrating toner.
Targets breakouts, brown spots and wrinkles in one go.
Water-light fluid minimises the appearance of pores and protects skin from the sun.
This oil-free night cream moisturises acne-prone skin without clogging pores or making breakouts worse.
