2% BHA Body Spot Exfoliant
What does it do?
Banish rough, dry and bumpy skin from the neck down.
This moisturising, silky body spot exfoliant contains salicylic acid (BHA) which works to gently exfoliate dry, rough skin, for example on the back or shoulders (bacne). It leaves skin hydrated, smooth and soft. BHA also helps improve the appearance of hard clogged pores on arms and legs. With continued use skin is left smoother, younger-looking and more radiant.

How to use
When using a BHA exfoliant for the first time, introduce it into your routine slowly. Start by using your exfoliant once every other day, and then increase usage to once or twice daily based on your skin’s response.
Dispense a small amount into the palm of your hand and apply to targeted areas of blemished or rough, bumpy areas of skin. For daytime use, be sure to follow with a sunscreen rated SPF 30 or above.

How does the 2% BHA Body Spot Exfoliant differ from the other Paula's Choice 2% BHA products?
The primary difference is with the base formula and the pH level. Our 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant and 2% BHA Lotion Exfoliant contain the same percentage of salicylic acid, but their pH levels are slightly higher. Because facial skin is generally more sensitive than body skin, Paula opted to formulate the Spot Exfoliant with 2% BHA at a lower pH level than our other 2% BHA products. This not only increases salicylic acid's ability to exfoliate, but makes this product especially beneficial for use on areas of rough, thickened skin such as elbows, knees, and heels. The lotion base of 2% BHA Body Spot Exfoliant is significantly less emollient than our 2% BHA Lotion and entirely different from our 2% BHA Liquid and 2% BHA Gel.
Can I use the 2% BHA Body Spot Exfoliant on my face?
Although the formula has been developed for the skin on your body, it is possible to also use it on your face. In fact, some skin types may prefer the texture of the 2% BHA Body Spot Exfoliant for facial use.
