Everyone using the 2% BHA liquid: I tried it and it was so sticky.  How do you get it to work with your daytime routine and not be sticky?  I heard it was so good but couldn't take the texture of it.

@Grouchomarx, I don't have that problem, but then I always give it at least ten minutes to do its job before putting anything else on my skin. It's the first thing I use after washing my face in the morning.

The 2% AHA is recommended once a day.  I use it in the evening, in place of a toner as Paula suggested.  You can use it in the morning as well but I prefer just at night, more than sufficient and extremely efficacious.

I use the 2% BHA at night.

Once I let it absorb for 10 minutes and then apply my other products, it's no longer sticky.

I’m a former PC skin care junkie, but recently I’ve scaled back on the number of PC skin care items I have used to try new items from another line.  However, one item that I really love is her eye gel.  It’s very light and doesn’t cause my eye make-up & mascara to smudge.  Her boosters are good too, some are better than others.  They Moisture Renewal & Hyaluronic Acid are really nice.  I also like the Vitamin C booster, although I’ve recently switched to another line for my Vitamin C serum.

@SurferWife  - what Vit C product did you switch to and how does it compare to the PC Vit C serum?

 

Thanks!

Yes, really like skin cleanser for super dry skin and have used it for many years. Was looking for some travel size skincare on AZ* and saw that she has a set listed there for $24. That might give you a reasonable amount to sample. She offers sample size packets on her website but often you need more product to figure out if you like it or not.

Good to hear from you!  I’ve been posting less these days, so I haven’t been keeping up as much as I used to.

 

I’ve switched to Josie Maran’s Vitamin C Serum.  I prefer it because it’s not sticky, plus it’s more hydrating.  I still have 2 bottles of PC’s Vitamin C booster so I’ll keep those as my back-up.
