Honestly speaking, before getting this in my hand, I was not aware of the uses and benefits of BHA. I only knew that it is a desired ingredient in the skincare regime. After receiving this from the brand, I started to Google about BHA. I was very sceptical about the word ‘acid’, thinking it might be too much exfoliation and might scratch skin’s surface leaving it to face more troubles. But, after some researches, I came to know that it all depends on the concentration and the level of your skin’s tolerance.
I think, I have talked too much. So, let’s dive into the review.
BHA Exfoliant Serum:
2% Salicylic Acid Serum with Gotu Kola And Green Tea
Salicylic Acid is a good exfoliant and fantastic anti aging ingredient beneficial for all skin types. It is also anti inflammatory, anti bacterial.
It exfoliates both on outer surface of skin like lactic acid but also enter inside pores and helps reduce pore blockage. So it is very good for acne.
Gotukola is a fantastic skin rejuvenation herb and Green Tea is a great anti Oxidant with sun protective properties and also helps reduce acne.
How to use:
Apply few drops on fingers and tap gently on a cleansed face. Follow up with regular Moisturiser. Start using every alternate day. Can be used in the morning or evening.

The orange colored liquid comes in an amber glass bottle with a dropper dispenser. The details about the product is printed on the outer side of the bottle.
It is a gentle, leave-on exfoliant in a moisturizing gel base. It’s meant to be used all over face excluding the eye area obviously. Using this on a regular basis (every alternate day) all over your face is helpful for fighting against acne. It penetrates deeply, through sebum.
This light textured, thin and spreadable gel type product feels fresh on the skin and isn’t oily at all. The serum absorbs easily without leaving any residue. It works really well on me. My pores are cleaner, my skin smoother and more glowy, and it quickly fades dark marks, sun damage and post-inflammatory pigmentation.
Honestly I am thoroughly impressed by the results of this product. I do use other exfoliating products too but, this hasn’t irritated or dried out my skin. I’ve experienced no breakouts and am enjoying the brightening results I’m achieving and seeing. This is a real bargain for such a good product.
Thanks for reading.
