Summary of Customer Ratings & Reviews
This is an amazing exfoliant which is a chemical one that’s very effective though I wouldn’t recommend this for sensitive skin it’s one of the best I’ve used and it’s really affordable. It’s improved my skin texture which is less bumpy and more smooth, my pores look less big as they don’t get as clogged and overall my skin looks healthier!

Nice texture and great value
I haven't noticed a huge difference with this yet, but I plan to keep using it as it's really good value and I love the slightly oily feel which feels really nourishing. I also use it as a spot treatment before bed which means one bottle lasts for ages
This has a strong exfoliating effect, which is appropriate for skin that needs to be brightened all over. Considering that it may induce redness, it is definitely inappropriate for extremely sensitive skin. It's best to use at night and follow up with a good moisturizer. Although it can't be used on specific areas, it can help a region with tiny blemishes or greasy skin. Along with being very reasonably priced, it is also by this brand.
Skin Type:: Combination
Do you have sensitive skin?: Yes
Usage?: Twice per day (morning and evening)
Recommends this product: Yes
Useful for winter?
Bought this on a whim, but I use Paula’s Choice usually. I’m not too sure if it’s doing what it’s meant to, but I would probably only recommend this during the winter months when your skin is more prone to drying up. It does leave skin oily-feeling, though it certainly hydrates you enough.
Best Use: Hydrating
No visible result
This is a no water formula and formulated with squalane, so it is very oily and sticky on skin after application. I could only use it at night. It does not have very visible result on skin, I like the other salicylic acid serum from the ordinary better.
