So you want to start using exfoliating BHA products but have no idea where to start. Don’t fret! We’re here to help with not one but four products for you to consider.
COSRX- BHA Blackhead Power Liquid
Want to use a BHA exfoliator but have sensitive skin? Or maybe you don’t want something too harsh? The COSRX BHA Blackhead Power Liquid is a good match for you! With ingredients like panthenol, butylene glycol and sodium hyaluronate, this product will help clear your skin without stripping it. An added bonus is that the product is silicone and paraben free with the company being cruelty free!
“I have sensitive and dry skin yet this exfoliator doesn’t dry my skin out. Instead, it actually hydrates my skin well. As I use this regularly, my blackheads have been clearing out. I highly recommend this!” –Chelss
Drunk Elephant- T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial
Maybe you’re more experienced and/or looking for something more intense? This next product contains 4 different acids and is good for both oily and dry skin. The combination of these acids can definitely help to clear your skin of dead skin cells or excess sebum! This product has a lot of benefits but carries a heftier price tag of $80.
“It’s a holy grail product for my textured skin. The product is intense yes but it works and worth every penny. My skin feels super soft and plump and pores are less noticeable. This is a wonderful product to try.” –Abeautifulmuse
Paula’s Choice- Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant
This toner is good for all skin types with a lower level of BHA. It’s definitely a good introduction for beginners who don’t want to do too much too quickly. It also contains salicylic acid, which helps in the exfoliating process!
“This exfoliating toner is a cult favourite and has been one of my personal holy-grails for a long time. It has a lightweight water like and it’s perfect for treating dark spots, dullness, bumpy skin and acne.” –Skincarebyshawn
Demalogica- Daily Microfoliant
If you’re saying “I want something that addresses a bunch of different concerns all at once.” This product is great for you! It takes care of concerns like brightening, soothing, hyper-pigmentation and more. This is thanks to the salicylic acid, allantoin, and green tea extract. It’s best suited for those with oily and resilient skin but those with sensitive skin can definitely reap benefits.
“This is the gentlest face microfoliant I ever tried. It made my skin feel smooth, soft and very clean after the use. It did not irritate my skin and is perfect for daily use.” –Helgaav
The INKEY List-Salicylic Acid Cleanser
So you want something a little more intense but maybe not 4 acids intense. Totally understandable! This product might be right up your alley. It’s got a splash (2%) of salicylic acid and some citric acid but it won’t leave your face feeling stripped or dry.
Review “This product had been a blessing for me for the past year to help combat maskne. It rinses off easily without leaving any residue or without making my skin feel dry or tight. For anyone who is acne or blemish prone, I definitely recommend this cleanser!” –Jackbrat
