Weakest points
Didn't magically vanish poors!
Summary
This the most-hyped BHA exfoliant and I was keen to compare it to the comparable The Ordinary 2% Salicylic Acid. My comparison didn't come to much but I feel this kept my skin on an even keel. It didn't reduce the size of enlarged pores but I do feel it reduced how clogged they were and the appearance of blackheads. This is much gentler than using a AHA with not stinging. It is a clear toner which I applied with my fingers, not with a cotton pad. It sinks in quickly. It does have a strongish smell which hasn't been masked with anything floral etc.
The bottle is very clever, it has a screw lid and a little stopper inside.
