Paula’s Choice BHA Skin Perfecting Liquid, £25
Paula's Choice BHA uses salicylic acid, aka the magic ingredient in acid peels which slough off the top layers of dull skin, all of which results in a lovely, glowy complexion. Plus, it's so effective that after a while you might even find yourself not needing it any more.
“I had stubborn blackheads – sebaceous filaments – for years. I've been using this stuff for a month now and practically all those little black dots have gone."
“It's very good, so good in fact I no longer need to use it.”Buy it now
Pixi Glow Tonic, £18
Pixi Glow Tonic is slightly on the lower end of the 'oomph' scale when it comes to intensity, so best for people who aren't looking for a very full-on chemical treatment. It's also a more affordable option. But don't be fooled – it's also remarkably effective.
“Pixi Glow Tonic is helping to even out my skin tone. It's an exfoliating toner that I sweep over my skin after cleansing.”
“My skin is noticeably smoother and brighter. Even DS asked 'What's up with your face?'!”Buy it now
The Ordinary, prices from £5.90
You can feel like a proper alchemist with The Ordinary's wide range of no-nonsense glass bottles and eye-droppers. Try starting out with Retinoid, then expanding your collection from there – you will want to.
“I love Retinoid! I use it most evenings. It goes on nicely and seems to keep my skin looking good.”
“I'm a skincare obsessive but The Ordinary have replaced quite expensive “high tech” products in my routine. They perform better on my skin and cost a fraction of the products I used to buy. No brainer."Buy it now
