Paula's Choice Calm 1% BHA Lotion Exfoliant unclogs pores, calms redness and eases inflammation thanks to Salicylic Acid and a host of calming and repairing ingredients.
Why you need it:
Paula's Choice Calm 1% BHA Lotion Exfoliant is a lightweight lotion with 1% Salicylic Acid, a Beta-Hydroxy Acid with anti-inflammatory properties. The lower concentration of Salicylic Acid makes this product an ideal BHA starter product for those with sensitive skin. Salicylic Acid lifts dead skin cells from the skin's surface and penetrates into the pore lining to help remove blockages.
It also calms the redness associated with Rosacea or sensitive skin reactions. A variety of soothing botanical extracts including Oat Bran Extract and Willow Herb Extract help to calm skin, while Glycerin and the essential fatty acid Lauric Acid have skin-repairing properties.
Note: This product was previously known as Paula's Choice Calm Redness Relief 1% BHA Lotion Exfoliant. Packaging has recently been updated for this product, during a transitional period you may receive either style. The product remains exactly the same.
Do not use products containing Salicylic Acid if you are allergic to aspirin.
Always use a daily SPF when using products containing AHAs/BHAs like Glycolic Acid and Salicylic Acid.
All skin types, but especially Rosacea-prone or Sensitive Skin.
Fragrance-free, Colourant-free, Cruelty-free.
How to use:
