Which is best for blocked pores and whiteheads etc? Also which Paula's Choice BHA - there seem to be several? TIA for any advice.

I have both and can honestly say at the moment, neither one have made much of a difference! They both have great reviews so I think consistency and perseverance is key.

That's interesting virgo. How long have you had them? Also which PC do you have?

I have both of them. Well I have Paula's choice 1% retinol I'm not sure which PC product you are looking at.

LRP doesn't make much difference to the blocked pores I found, though my face was more even toned. But tbh it could be because of the other products I use rather than LRP, I chuck it all on and hope something works.

The only thing that remotely makes a difference is a retinol product, ideally I'd like a retin a cream but it's not easy to get hold of and the PC retinol is not bad.

You're supposed to use salicylic acid for spots/blackheads but I can't use it it brings my face out in huge bumps so I use glycolic and retinol.

I bought the Timeless serum from America and had high hopes for it but I seem to have come out in spots hmm

PC 2 per cent salicylic lotion (the anti-redness one in the blue tube) really cleared out my blackheads but you do need to keep using it or they come back.

Thanks chicken I'll look into that PC one.

Good luck, user! Go carefully at first and use SPF.

Thanks chicken do you recommend any non-comodogenic SPFs?

Hi, for winter, a moisturiser containing SPF is probs ok. Avene or La Roche Posay.

Otherwise, La Roche Posay Antihelios SPF50 is the one recommended by the goddess Dr Sam Bunting.
