This Dermatologist-Approved Exfoliant Is on Major Sale Right Now

It’s not only beloved by editors and consumers but approved by board-certified dermatologists as well. Joshua Zeichner, MD, director of cosmetic and clinical research of dermatology at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City, recommends this exfoliating toner for those with acne-prone skin. 

Allure editors are also fans of this gentle, non-irritating exfoliant. Ever since I started using this as my nighttime toner, I’ve noticed that my serums and moisturizers don’t feel as sticky or heavy, which means they’re absorbing faster and more deeply post-exfoliant. I’ve also noticed a noticeable decrease in my blackheads (especially those on my nose), which is a huge win.

It’s one of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale’s most popular items year after year, so don’t wait to get yours. Plus, this jumbo-size bottle will probably last you until next year’s sale, so it’s an investment that pays for itself. Scoop up Paula’s Choice Jumbo BHA Set for $46 at nordstrom.com now through July 31 when the sale bids its goodbyes. We can’t promise it won’t sell out, so your best bet is to add it to your cart now.


And, while we have you, take this opportunity to check out other exfoliators that are also worth your money:

Kate Somerville ExfoliKate Cleanser Daily Foaming Wash

Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Alpha Beta Extra Strength Daily Facial Peel Set

Perfect for those with acne-prone skin, Kate Somerville‘s ExfoliKate Cleanser provides a satisfying deep cleanse without harsh scrubbing. Glycolic and lactic acids pick up breakout-causing dirt and leftover makeup, resulting in smoother, clearer skin with regular use. No wonder it’s a favorite amongst drag queens.

Few peel pads have garnered the same level of attention and admiration as Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare‘s Alpha Beta line. Inside the Alpha Beta Jumbo Essentials set, you’ll find 60 applications of jumbo-size Alpha Beta Extra Strength Daily Facial Peels pads, which is a two-step system spiked with seven types of acids — including glycolic, lactic, and salicylic — for professional-level results that minimize the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, large pores, shine, and uneven skin texture without leaving your skin feeling raw. As a bonus, you’ll receive a 16-ounce AHA/BHA Daily Cleansing Gel to sweep away pore-clogging dirt, bacteria, and makeup.
