Product summary

"Paula's choice - Skin Perfecting BHA 9 Treatment" is effective for: Anti-inflammatory, Exfoliation and Anti-blemish

This product could be helpful for: Moisturizing, but its actives are not the most effective or are not well-studied.

Ingredient callouts

  • Salicylic acid (1.60% - 2.40%). This is an oil-soluble exfoliating acid. Because of this property, it can work inside pores and help reduce the congestion. It has an anti-inflammatory effect and is used to treat acne. Because it is a quite strong exfoliator, be careful with using this product too often: it could result in over-exfoliation.
  • Humectants (arginine 0.15% - 0.60% and glycerin 1.70% - 2.50%). These ingredients help attract water to the upper layer of the skin and improve the skin hydration.


The product retails for 88.05CA$ in Canada, from 44.10A$ up to 63.00A$ in Australia and from 44.00$ up to 46.00$ in the United States.
