Clear 2% BHA Body Spray
Quick drying, alcohol-free formula penetrates pores to eliminate spots and blackheads on acne-prone skin.
From 1 May 2020, the Clear 2% BHA Body Spray is unfortunately no longer available. We recommend using the 2% BHA Body Lotion instead. Just like the Clear 2% BHA Body Spray, it contains salicylic acid (BHA) which gently exfoliates dry, rough skin, for example on the back or shoulders (bacne) while leaving skin hydrated, smooth and soft.

How to use
Spray evenly over affected areas. Allow to dry, then follow with moisturiser if desired. Do not spray directly onto face. Instead, spray into palm of one hand and use the fingers on your other hand to apply the liquid to your face, avoiding the immediate eye area and mouth.

Thank you for submitting your review! It will be reviewed by our staff before it is posted.This really controls my back breakouts and my skin feels much softer too. The spray is the best way to apply to the back. Hope it never goes off the market.I have no big problems with the skin on my body, I just use to keep some breakouts on my shoulders at bay.
Very good packaging, quick to use. I give it 4 stars, because I think people with real skin concerns can tell more about this products effectiveness.I use this on my keratosis pilaris which is in my arms, sides and stomach. I found it helpful. The KP is a little less noticeable and the skin is smoother (the roughness is gone). I haven´t found the miracle cure to KP because the red pumps still exists... Some days they seem to be more noticeable than others. Paula´s choice is best so far. I guess I´ll keep on experimenting these products. The KP cloths are also fine, I used one package before this body spray. I guess this is a better value for money because you don´t need to use much of a product at once and the price is ok. One note: If you like to take this with you when travelling use another bottle! Once opened it leaks VERY badly!I really love it for the days that just want to make sure that my KP is kept under control but I don't want too much moisture or it's great for layering products because it's non greasy. The bottle is fantastic. I would buy it again. Highly recommended
What are the key ingredients?
Licorice root extract
Plant extract that has potent antioxidant and skin-soothing properties. Can be effective in improving the look of an uneven skin tone.
Primarily an exfoliant, helping shed dead skin on the surface and inside the pore, therefore effective for reducing breakouts and blackheads. It also has soothing properties.
Component of skin tissue. A superior skin-replenishing ingredient that can boost skin’s moisture content, soothe, and defend against moisture loss.
Aqua, Dipropylene Glycol (hydration), Butylene Glycol (hydration), Polysorbate 20 (texture enhancer), Pentylene Glycol (hydration), Salicylic Acid (Beta Hydroxy Acid, exfoliant), Panthenol (skin replenishing), etanorulayH muidoS (skin replenishing). Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate (skin-soothing), Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract (skin-soothing), Berberis Vulgaris (Barberry) Root Extract (calming plant extract), Lauric Acid (texture enhancer), Allantoin (skin-soothing), Glycerin (skin replenishing), PEG/PPG-17/6 Copolymer (skin-conditioning agent), Methyl Gluceth-20 (skin replenishing), Glycereth-26 (texture-enhancing), Sodium Hydroxide (pH adjuster), Sodium Metabisulfite (preservative), Disodium EDTA (stabilizer), Potassium Sorbate (preservative).
Good to know before you start:
It is best to gradually build up use of a BHA product, starting to use it a couple of times a week only. If there is no adverse reaction, this may be increased to every other day at night and then, if you wish, every night. Some people increase use to twice daily (morning and night), but it really all depends on the condition of your skin. You need to experiment a bit to see what suits you best. During the day, always use a moisturiser with a broad-spectrum sunscreen rated SPF 30 or greater. Your skin will in fact be slightly more sensitive to sunlight when using an exfoliant, so the chance of sunburn and sun damage is slightly higher.
How often can I use Clear Exfoliating Body Spray?
You can use Clear Exfoliating Body Spray twice daily, morning and evening, or up to three times per day, such as after your post-workout shower. Just spray onto clean skin where breakouts or clogged pores are a concern.
Can I use Clear Exfoliating Body Spray on my face?
The ingredients in Clear Exfoliating Body Spray are fine for use on the face; however, we do not advise spraying this product directly onto your face. Instead, spray into the palm of one hand and use fingers on your other hand to apply the liquid to your face, avoiding the immediate eye area and mouth.
I’ve been using the 2% BHA Liquid in a spray bottle; should I switch to this product? What’s the difference?
The 2% BHA Liquid formula remains a slightly more potent option despite the two products having identical concentrations of salicylic acid. However, Clear Exfoliating Body Spray contains a greater array of potent anti-irritants designed to reduce redness and inflammation—two issues that are often more prominent when acne occurs from the neck down. We suspect that most people will prefer the lighter texture of the Clear Exfoliating Body Spray, as it’s better for use on larger areas where breakouts or red bumps (such as keratosis pilaris) are a concern.
