Paula's Choice Skincare: BHA Lotion & Antioxidant Serum

I am really unsure as to why I haven't posted about these goodies from Paula's Skincare before. I mean for once I have almost finished using up both and secondly, I quite liked both of them to be honest. Sometimes life gets in the way of blogging and new products make it to the top but I managed to dig this in amidst my mountain of skincare and thank goodness I did. You guys needed to know about this!

The Skin Perfecting 2% BHA (Beta Hydroxy Acid) Lotion to me sounds and works just as well as Alpha H Liquid Gold but with pore cleansing and blemish zapping properties. It has skin cell renewal, collagen creation, redness reduction and similar properties crammed up in the formulation. What's amazing is that it's even suitable for sensitive skin types or those suffering from acne as it helps calm down redness, irritation and help reduce acne. Apparently one of the few exfoliators you can try on skin suffering from rosacea without aggravating it.

What it is a cream that you need to slather onto the skin and then leave it on. I don't remove it and just let it absorb as that's what it says on the bottle. It's a little weird as you'd usually remove such cream-liquid exfoliators but I feel this way it absorbs in and works better and for longer. Just like Alpha H, I don't top it up with anything but you can follow it with a hydrating cream. Skin immediately looks brighter with use and although it has an awkward scent to it, it doesn't matter as it's left my skin so good afterwards.

The Skin Balancing Anti-Oxidant Serum is another product I tried and loved from Paula's Choice Skincare. It's topped up with age-fighting antioxidants that help protect skin from free radical damage which can break collagen and cause pre-mature ageing. This particular one is for skin types that want to protect skin from such environmental damage and ageing but without any extra oil production, breakout promoting ingredients. Hence this light, weightless formula is just perfect. It glides onto the skin like a dream! I personally find my skin to feel a little slippery and waxy after application hence I can't follow up with make-up. I'd reserve it for treatment evening or au natural days outside.

A great fuss free yet effective range of products from an expert in skincare, Paula's Choice is a brand UK needs to embrace more.
