This power liquid cleared my congested pores and subsequently my acnes too! For me, it is very mild and gentle enough to slowly exfoliate my skin. It has a mild scent and a little product goes a long way. I applied the solution only on my problematic areas. There was no purging state for me and it works well with my evening routine. Be sure to slowly introduce this product into your skincare routine if you are new to using acids such as BHAs. Do follow the suggested usage and apply sunscreen during the day.

I previously used Paula's Choice 2% BHA but saw no improvement with my pores and blackheads so I switched to this one. I do think this has a better texture, it doesn't leave a film over your skin like the Paula's Choice. However, after consistently using this I also saw no improvement on my skin. It could be leave on BHAs do nothing for my skin. While it doesn't seem to have an effect on my skin, I do believe it has some exfoliating power. When I used this in conjunction with the AHA/BHA toner, my skin burned a bit. This is more gentle than Paula's Choice and I would recommend those who suffer from blackheads and large pores to try out a sample.

I have oily and acne prone skin.I used this product 3 times a week. It should help with blackheads, but for me there was almost none effect. During the using I developed some large painful cysts underneath my skin on my chin. I am not a huge fan of this product, it did not work for me...
