I don’t think I will ever have perfect skin & I am slowly coming khổng lồ terms with that. However, I have faith I can get pretty darn close and that is the goal right now. So, about a couple of months ago, at the beginning of November, I started khổng lồ get these super weird bumps all over my forehead. They weren’t quite pimples (or maybe they were baby pimples?). I believe they were just clogged pores due to the oiliness of my skin (remember when I had dry skin?? Yeah, not anymore) or just your average case of uneven skin texture. Whatever they were, they drove me crazy. My forehead had been consistently clear for the past number of years so it felt lượt thích I was going backwards in terms of my skin & it was pretty damn frustrating.

But, as usual, miss Paula’s Choice came lớn the rescue when I was sent one of the newest launches from the brand. This is the Skin Perfecting 25% AHA + 2% BHA Exfoliant Peel ($39USD) and it really has been the perfect addition to my skincare routine. This multi-acid peel consists of a 2% salicylic (BHA) acid plus an AHA blend of 8.4% glycolic acid, 7.1% lactic acid, 5% mandelic acid, 2.5% malic acid & 2% tartaric acid. This multitude of acids work together khổng lồ deliver gentle yet powerful skin resurfacing. And, in addition, plant extracts lượt thích chamomile, licorice và allantoin help to lớn soothe the skin so it doesn’t get too irritated. Lastly, the Butterfly Pea (pea, not pee) Flower Extract also calms any signs of redness and soothes irritation. It also gives the peel this amazing metallic lilac colour. This is my new favorite colour for the Spring. It’s perfection and I’m so glad my face will now match all my outfits when I apply this peel.

So, because of the high percentage of AHA’s in this peel, it is designed to be used only once a week for just a mere ten minutes.

But bởi vì not underestimate what this mask can do in such a short period of time! The AHAs help to lớn reduce the appearance of sun damage, fine lines, rough or crepey texture and wrinkles while the BHA unclogs pores và smoothes out any rough, bumpy texture. I found that after a couple weeks of using this peel, my skin looked so clear, glowy & smooth. It’s safe to lớn say it definitely has become a staple in my skincare routine.

Because this is a concentrated peel, there are a couple of precautions to take. This isn’t just your ordinary, everyday mask, so please listen up. First, you’re going to want to lớn skip any leave-on exfoliants when using the peel. I know you love your Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant ($29.50USD) but you’re going khổng lồ want to lớn apply that after not before this peel (although I often skip it all together on the nights that I bởi this peel). Vị not double up while you have this peel on your skin. Second, always patch test. Try this peel on the inside of your arm or on your neck so you can monitor any irritation. A bit of tingling at first is normal, pain or burning is not. Third, you’re going khổng lồ need lớn religiously apply sunscreen. You should be doing this regardless but it’s even more important after using this peel as the AHAs increase your skin’s sensitivity khổng lồ the sun. Last, don’t use on skin that’s been really sensitive from other treatments lately. Give your skin a little bit of a break!
