My latest campaign was to sample Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid. This is something I’ve wanted to try for a while, so I am happy BzzAgent and Paula’s Choice both reached out to me for this campaign.
Boxes usually include a product card to go over some important details of the campaign.
They usually include a coupon you can share with others as well. This was no different. I received a 20% off coupon code, PRBHA16, that is valid through 05/30/16. Compare this to other Paula’s Choice offers.
There was a bonus inside this set, 20 Beauty Myths Busted! This is a book I already own and read most of after getting it with a previous order. It is really helpful, and I recommend reading it.
The neat thing about this campaign is BzzAgent sent me a 4oz bottle to try the product. It also sent me five 1oz samples to hand out to friends.
I was already planning on starting a traveling box where one person (in this case, me) starts a box by placing a bunch of beauty items inside, and others on the list add and remove things based on their taste. This set arrived on 02/05/16. On 02/27/16, I placed my five samples for friends in the box and sent it on. The first five ladies who wanted one took this sample out without adding anything back in, because it is a freebie. It seems like a hit, because only a couple of ladies passed on freebie. My only complaint is the sample bottles do not travel well. They kept spilling during each transit.
One of the main reasons I wanted to try this is the dry flaky skin I get in winter. It always looks worse when I am wearing makeup. The picture above was from just before I started this product. My flaky skin is especially noticeable between my brows, my forehead, and on my cheeks. I started this a couple of weeks after it arrived, so it was getting closer to the end of February. Now, that I’ve used it a month and a half, I definitely notice a huge difference. I am using highlighter in both pictures, so the highlighter has nothing to do with my incredible glow.
In my recent picture, you can see the dry patches are almost gone. The weather is a little warmer, but we’ve experience inconsistent weather here where it is cold one day and warm the next. That is very hard on my skin as well. I took longer than a month (which is my usual review time) thanks to the extended deadline to put strings of straight use together and take little breaks to see what happens.
When I use this once a day and do not skip, that is my optimum use. It is not too harsh for daily use. My skin glows. I noticed diminished pores, slight wrinkle reduction, and smooth, un-flaky skin. That is everything this product promises, and it certainly delivers. If I skipped a 1-3 days of using this, I noticed the dry patches started returning. That likely means people who choose to use BHA less often will not see the same results. Although, I am sure results will vary depending on skin type, so experimenting and finding your perfect amount of use is best.
While I did not notice any adverse effects from using this more than once a day, I did not see any added benefits either. My skin looked as wonderful with daily use as it did with twice daily use. I love that I had time to experiment with usage to find my perfect balance. The product is formulated at the pH level needed to effectively penetrate pores. This leave-on exfoliant has a unique, water-light texture, ideal for any skin type. When I apply this, my skin instantly feels softer. That sounds crazy until you try it and see what I mean.
It makes it different from other BHA products on the market. I cannot recall if I’ve ever tried any other BHA products before, but I have used chemical exfoliants before. Most are wonderful. Chemical exfoliants may actually work better than physical exfoliants. This is definitely a product I do not want to be without, so I purchased this when the right deal came along.
Once you’ve tried the product, you have a task to complete. Completing the task helps you qualify for future programs. These are the tasks I will complete for this campaign. The tasks on this list are right on par with my recent mission.

I'm Kimberly. Shopping is always more fun when I've found the best deal available, so I am always on the hunt. My father instilled that in me, and I love that I carry a piece of him. Sometimes, my husband and sons (12 and 7) let me shop for them, too. They do not use as many beauty products as I do. We can all benefit from nice products, even though their routine ends with moisturizer. That is when I can convince my 12-year-old to apply it.
