I've been using La Roche Possay Effaclar Duo Plus for the last couple of weeks and I already see a difference in my post inflammatory hyper pigmentation.

It's really exciting as I've tried so much other stuff. It contains a small percentage of salacylic acid which is a BHA. I've also heard good things from a friend about Paula's Choice BHA exfoliants but haven't tried it myself yet! Good luck!
