"BHA exfoliant is ideal for treating acne-prone skin, blackheads, enlarged pores, and milia due to its ability to penetrate the oil that’s clogging your pores."
"BHA has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial action. That’s two more reasons to use a BHA exfoliant if you have acne or sensitive, reddened skin."
"BHA is preferred for those struggling with rosacea. Not everyone who has rosacea-prone skin can tolerate an exfoliant, but those who can will see reduced redness and smoother skin. (Salicylic acid’s antimicrobial action also may benefit rosacea because there’s some research suggesting that certain microbes on skin may be causing or contributing to the disorder."

You may get the gist now after all those notes from PaulasChoice. However, there are also different opinion about BHA or AHA exfoliant is that some says you need to wait until it is dry for 20 minutes or so on your face before you can apply the following product. In my opinion, this is depend on one's skin. In my case, I don't need to wait until AHA exfoliant dries on me because it doesn't effect my skin however I DO need to wait until my BHA dries on skin for a few minutes and then I'll apply the next product. This is because AHA didn't cause tingling sensation on my skin but BHA do.
I also find that this A-sol from COSRX need to be applied moderately if you're first time user and have sensitive skin or acne-prone skin because it might tingle your skin for quite amount of time until you're used to it. My skin requires about a month and more to adapt with the BHA exfoliant until I can't feel any tingling sensation anymore every time I applied this after washing my face.
I already used this for quite amount of time and I would definitely feel that this A-Sol definitely reduce the appearance of sebum on my skin and at the same time it locks the moisture in. The consistency is watery and I don't like using cotton pad because cotton pad soak so much of the product and I feel it is a waste. Usually I would put the liquid on my palm and just patted it on my face until it was absorbed.
Until this date, I don't have sensitive reaction to this product and I do feel that it helps to lessen my redness especially on my cheeks and the reduce the pimples appearance on my face (though I rarely get one now since I found my HG drink and it helps my face 100% free from acne or pimples :D)
and by the way, there is no fragrance in this exfoliant but there is a natural smell which smells like herbs I guess?
Overall, I would recommend this product to everyone who had troubled skin and use moderately if you're a first timer so that it can adapt to your skin before you used them madly like me now XD haha just kidding ;D
I rate this:
Thank you for reading
