Getting Rid Of My Blackheads With Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant!
I know I’ve talked about Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant so many times. I’ve used it on and off, since I have full bottles of it, and I don’t know what to do with them anymore. haha. So I decided to pick up on using it again after quitting it just recently. These blackheads on my nose are getting annoying. I must do something about it! It seems like nothing works long term. I’m also using The Ordinary Mandelic Acid 10% + HA, but it stopped working on my blackheads. I like it, but it’s just not working anymore. I’ll talk more about The Ordinary Mandelic Acid 10% + HA another time. Now let’s focus on Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant! Read on! 🙂
I’ve tried using Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant two ways. I used it with a cotton pad and dispensing some product into my palm and gentle patting it into my skin. Both of these methods are good. I didn’t have any breakouts or irritation from any of these methods. But it seems like the latter isn’t up to par. I’m not getting results from it like I did before. It’s like my skin gets better then I see no improvements as weeks go on. I feel like I’m wasting my time when something doesn’t work as intended. SO! I decided to switch over and use it with a cotton pad. This is my experience using it with a cotton pad instead…
What I did was dispense a little bit of product onto a cotton pad and swipe my face with the cotton pad. You know, I used to use Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant with a cotton pad back then when this 2% BHA Liquid was my facial toner. I’m not sure if it did anything for my skin, but my skin was in really good shape. Hopefully, I can get the same results again. Maybe it was doing something for my skin that I didn’t know of. But after swiping my face, I noticed debris on the cotton pad. Uh oh, looks like I have leftover dirt and debris on my skin! Possibly more excess sebum that I can never get rid of even after using 10000x exfoliants and oil-controlling products, lol. But, my skin definitely looked and felt much cleaner afterwards. It left my skin prepped for the next skin care products in my routine. My skin felt happy! 😀
I followed this method for a few days in the morning and at night. Knowing how oily my skin is, I know it can take drying skin care products like this. My skin hasn’t dried out from using Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant (yet) and other chemical exfoliants I’m using by much. All is going well. And it seems like the cotton pad method is the way to go to remove excess dirt, sebum, and debris from the skin if you have oily, acne-prone skin like mine. As for acne, I really can’t tell if the 2% BHA Liquid is doing anything yet. I’ll just have to wait and see. It’s only been under a week to see any improvements. But I like the way my skin looks and feels after using the 2% BHA Liquid with a cotton pad — oh so smooth and clean! I’m crossing my fingers that it’ll help decrease blackheads and acne in general over time. We’ll see! A new update coming up soon! Stay tuned!
