Note: We originally published this last year, but as it so happens, this beloved lotion is on sale yet again.
Last summer, the Cut’s (now former) senior beauty editor Ashley Weatherford sang the praises of this pore-clearing lotion from Paula’s Choice. Each morning, after cleansing her face with Glossier’s Milky Jelly, she slathers on some of this exfoliant (made with 8 percent glycolic acid), and the result is “smooth, incredibly even skin.” She continues: “[T]he humectant property of glycolic acid draws in moisture and makes my skin look constantly dewy; my face overall appears impossibly smooth. That’s why the lotion has become the third step in my morning routine. Followed by sunscreen, of course.” And right now, it (and all other Paula’s Choice products) are 15 percent off at Dermstore through August 2.
