The BHA liquid is effective for the 3 step pore cleanse. I haven’t been able to regularly use it without washing off though as it makes my skin feel sensitive. :(

Love this product! I use it almost every morning to keep my pores clear as I'm oily/combo and am very prone to congestion. A lot of other BHA products can feel oily or greasy on the skin and this one absolutely does not. It also is gentler than traditional salicylic acid so it's great for people who are more sensitive or need a gentler alternative for whatever reason.

I use this as an active and have been using it for almost a year now. From what I've read, I definitely think it's important to use a low pH cleanser beforehand if you want to maximise the results. I also use a pH adjusting toner before to make sure my skin is prepped. I don't use cotton pad with it. Instead, I just pump it into my palm and spread it onto my face.

I have blackheads on my nose and the sides of my nose and chin are sensitive so I'm careful while using this because it can irritate the skin. I use it every other day, sometimes 2 days straight depending on how my skin is acting. I use this every time I do a peel off mask on my nose!

I have just ordered this product after reading so many good reviews... can't wait to see if it really help with blackheads.

To chime in, I’ve been using this for 6 months now. I have never been prone to blackheads (sorry) BUT I am acne-prone, and this is my preventative solution. Since using this, I have had much fewer breakouts and closed comedones. Also, no irritation! I use this every night directly after cleansing. I wait ~15 minutes before applying my next step, and in that time this product does not dry out my dry skin.

This really helps me keep my skin under control! I can't wash my face with water so I tend to get mild acne & blackhead build up and this helps to keep that to a minimum. It doesn't make my eczema worse unless I directly apply it on a patch of irritated skin. Highly recommend to anyone with problem skin!
