It’s been a while lovelies, but I’M BAAAAAACK! Shit got cray for a few weeks – I increased my hours at one of my jobs, got a puppy, then my computer crashed, and I just got it back yesterday. Anyway, I upgraded my computer so now it’s super fast and amazing…silver linings!
Today, I want to talk about how much chemical exfoliation has changed my life. I’m going to start with BHAs (Beta Hydroxy Acids), and then move on to AHAs (Alpha Hydroxy Acids) in my next post, then talk about how I incorporate them into my nighttime routine.
Until about 10 or so weeks ago, I’d never used chemical exfoliants. They aren’t typically used in a Korean skincare routine, and most Korean skincare companies don’t make any BHA or AHA products, so it was something that wasn’t even on my radar. One of my besties in HCMC got her hands on Paula’s Choice 2% BHA Exfoliating Liquid and the holy grail Biologique Recherché P50 Lotion for me and GIRL. My skin hasn’t looked so good pretty much…ever. Both products are pretty pricey and difficult to get in Vietnam (well Paula’s Choice is in Vietnam now but still expensive), but thank god that some Korean companies have started making BHA and AHA products, so I decided to do comparison reviews. On today’s agenda is the COSRX BHA Blackhead Power Liquid vs the Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting 2% Exfoliating Liquid.
