Why me??

When I rub my skin balls out skin come out

Okay that's a bit of an exaggeration. :D

I began using Paula's Choice Skin Balancing Toner and her BHA 2% Liquid around two weeks ago, and today after cleansing my face, while still in the shower, I started rubbing my skin rather vigorously and little bits of skin just came off. My skin felt smooth after, but is this normal?

Could this be due to the BHA? I started out applying it once day for the first 3 or 4 days, and then twice per day. Maybe I'm overexfoliating?

That's normal. You need to use a manual exfoliator (facial scrub) because that skin that is coming off has the potential to clog pores
