For a long time, I wasn't using exfoliants because my skin is so sensitive and many exfoliants are abrasive and have fragrance in them and/or other allergens. That said, this Paula's Choice formula is THE ONE. Here's my routine in order:
Makeup remover, cleanser, toner, Paula's Choice exfoliant, serum, moisturizer. <--- There's my master skincare routine that pretty much helps prevent my pores from being clogged by makeup and really anything else. I trust it so much and this is a special feat since my skin is WILDLY sensitive.
Promising review: "I have every skin issue you can think of: Rosacea, acne (hormonal, cystic, whiteheads, blackheads), dehydration, excessive oiliness, redness — all of it. I’ve spent probably thousands on a multitude of different products, trying to find one that would at least make a dent. I’ve had many procedures and many trips to the dermatologist. Nothing I’ve ever used, nothing I’ve ever done, has made such a profound difference in the appearance of my skin. Having rosacea, my face often felt hot, bumpy, and burned. While my complexion is naturally fair and pink, this has seriously covered all my bases in a gentle and effective way. I’ve been trying to turn my skin around for YEARS!! this was the product that did it. If I could give it 100 stars I would. It has seriously changed my life!!!" —Arrica
