Salicylic acid is a well-known oil-soluble acid that is the gold standard in treating blackheads and enlarged pores. This exfoliating superstar can unclog pores and balance blackhead-prone, oily skin by working inside the pores to clear out dead skin cells that clog them. Sarcosine joins forces with BHA to further improve combination skin-related problems such as excess oil production.

Love it !

I love it ! I love the texture.
I bought it because I couldn't stand the texture of the 2% BHA from you know who (way too oily !).
Porefectly clear is a very light gel that sinks immediatly into the skin. It is perfect for my very oily skin.
Thank you for this, G&G ;)

My favourite serum for blackheads

This product is a miracle. I've been fighting blackheads around my nose area for years. When I started using Porefectly clear, the difference was so visible, it is unbelievable. I just put a little drop every morning :) it's fine for my sensitive skin as well

best bha serum, my holy grail

please don’t ever change the formula! this is the best bha i have ever used. my whiteheads are gone whenever i put this on and it has improved my skin texture. i tried expensive ones but this serum performs best. love that it’s not drying or watery. keep it up g&g <3

Exfoliant efficace

Je recommande le Porefectly clear qui réduit les points noirs et les pores dilatés. Convient parfaitement aux peaux grasses à tendance acnéique

Use with Apad

I’m just wondering if you can layer this with the aPad 101 or is it better to either alternate or use one in the AM and one in the PM? I use retinol in the PM so have been using aPad then the retinol and then salicylic acid in the AM. Would really love to incorporate this product in my skincare routine
