Product Review: Paula's Choice Exfoliating 8% AHA Gel

This gel is recommended for Normal/Dry skin, however I have combination, acne prone skin and I LOVE it.  Especially since I use Benzoyl Peroxide on my skin when I have a breakout, this is perfect to slough off the dry skin that is a side effect of the BP.  

Every day after cleansing and toning, I apply this to my skin before my serum and moisturizer.  Using this every day keeps my skin looking "new"  :)  The first few times you use it, I would recommend every other day for your skin to get used to it.  It may feel like it's burning a touch, but the sensitivity to it goes away after a few uses.  Also, don't use it if your skin is feeling very irritated.  It IS a chemical exfoliant.  

I highly recommend this product.  I much prefer this kind of exfoliant over a physical one (like a scrub) as it's gentler and I can use it every day.
