About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Paula Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid- BzzAgent Review


My morning beauty routine used to consist of washing my face with Purpose soap and then a quick application of make-up, if I was lucky.  

I'm definitely a girly girl, but this girly girl had very. little. time. to spend primping in the mirror.
Sad to say, it showed occasionally quite often.

Soooo, when the opportunity arose to review a leave on exfoliant I held my hand high in the air!  I'd never heard of Paula's Choice before but it was high time that I started taking better care of my face!  Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid claimed to do all these things... 

-Create bright, smooth & radiant skin
-Stimulate collagen production

The BHA (salicylic acid):
-Unclogs and refines pores
-Reduces breakouts

(Recommended for all skin types.)

I was super excited to try this and see what it could do for me!  Before I tell you my experience, you might be interested to know that I'm in my 40's and have fair, combination skin.  My major concerns are clogged pores, redness and skin that just needs a big hug (my fault!).

PROS:

-I was shocked at the difference I saw in my pores.  The "trouble" spots (not sharing where they are!) on my face where enlarged pores reside do appear smaller!  And, clogged pores, for the most part, are a thing of the past!  I get out a magnification mirror (those of you 40+ know what I'm talking about) every few days just to check on things.  My pores are happier than they've been in a long time.
-My skin does appear smoother and softer.
-The product is gentle on my skin.  I use it twice a day and haven't had any irritation.
-It's super easy to use.  I wash with Purpose soap and then apply Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting Liquid all over my face (avoid eye area) with a cotton ball.  Simple!
-It's 100% fragrance and colorant free.
-Paula's Choice products are never tested on animals.

CONS:

-I haven't noticed a reduction in redness.
-I've had a few (3) blemishes while using this product.  Nothing major, and they do heal within a few days, but I thought I'd mention it.
-Haven't noticed a reduction in fine lines.  Hoping that will come with continued use.

Conclusion:
I'm going to continue using Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid.  I like the positive difference I'm seeing in my skin, plus it's easy to use and doesn't cause irritation. It's exactly what I didn't know I needed!

:)

*I was given this product by BzzAgent in exchange for my honest opinion.  No other compensation was received.*

Sounds great! I've started using Neutrogena retinol products. They're making a difference for me after only a few weeks. Skin care has always been important and even more so at my age- almost 69! I like the way you review the products you try. The site for Paula's Choice will most likely be visited more today! Have a blessed one!

What's a skin care regiment? LOL! That might be why I sometimes look in the mirror and say, "Boy, do I look OLD!"
