The key ingredient in this Paula's Choice exfoliant is Beta hydroxy acid (BHA), which helps cleanse away dead skin cells, as well as dirt and grime build-up that can clog pores. As this exfoliator takes away layers of dead skin, it exposes newer skin. The result? A brighter complexion and reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Because this is a gentle exfoliant, it can be used daily (if you notice dry patches developing, dial down to a few times a week). Along with unclogging pores, this exfoliant also works to reduce the appearance of enlarged pores and to unclog blackheads, which can all contribute to adult acne.

"I am 50. Love the sun and have had acne issues in the past," one five-star reviewer explains. "This has evened my skin tone, has reduced the look of fine lines, evened out dark patches and has made my skin smooth and soft like butter. Everything feels tighter. This is some dark magic sh*t and I love it!"

To help reduce dryness or redness, this exfoliant includes green tea extract, which adds a dose of soothing moisture. Paula's Choice is also free of fragrances, dyes and parabens, so you can feel good knowing no unnecessary chemicals went into your cleanser.

Reviewers with all types of skin concerns rave about Paula's Choice exfoliant.

"LOVE this product," says one. "I wish I had it my whole life. It has helped diminish pores, clear adult acne, even reduce wrinkles. It makes my skin soft, too. I FINALLY at 50 have great skin. It is also working for my 20-year-old daughter who suffers from acne."

Another reviewer says results were almost instant: "I am over 50 and still have issues with acne," they explain. "I started using this about 2 weeks ago and noticed an improvement the first day! Now, 2 weeks later, my skin is completely clear."

Experience the magic firsthand by grabbing Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting Exfoliant at Amazon, for just $11 right now.
