So after reading Salicylic Acid I grabbed my Clearasil pads (which don't do anything to combat bumps. Right on the back it lables the active ingredient as the same- Salycylic Acid 2%.
Are these products the same? I am new so maybe that's it, but I was thinking BHA was different than Salycylic Acid. My Clearasil pads don't exfoliate at all. I was buying the PC BHA thinking it would get deep in my pores and cause a temporary skin peeling to clear bumps out. Definitely thought it was more intensive as far as OTC than Clearasil.
So are they the same? Should I expect the same results from Paula's Choice 2% BHA as I have had with the Clearasil ( which doesn't do anything)? Or how is PC better? It is certainly more expensive!!
