More information

Our Salicylic Acid-rich Concentrate is a fast-action, fast-absorbing leave-on chemical exfoliation to gently remove dead skin cells, fight blackheads, reduce blemishes, target enlarged pores, and improve hydration to reveal a softer, more youthful-looking and brighter skin, without causing redness or inflammation.

Our BHA rich formulation works on the upper layers of the skin, encouraging dead skin cells to shed to reveal the healthier and more radiant layers underneath. Our calming and anti-inflammatory blend of bio-active ingredients complement the acids to smooth and hydrate the skin.


Brightens, hydrates, targets blackheads, spots and blemishes, reduces enlarged pores and inflammation, smooths skin without causing irritation


For all skin types and life stages, particularly suited to dull and blemish-prone.

Apply several pumps to a beauty pad to a clean skin, gently wipe over a dry face, avoiding the delicate eye area. No rinsing required. Allow it to dry before applying your next step in your routine.

Use AM and PM.

Use within 6 months once opened.

Willow Bark
Contains salicylic acid, a BHA that is a natural exfoliant used in many acne treatments because of its ability to help skin shed dead cells and clear pores.

Tiger Grass (Centella Asiatica)
A medicinal plant known for its anti-inflammatory and healing properties. Beautifully green and rich in chlorophyll, it will enhance the look and feel of the skin by making it stronger and more supple.

Hyaluronic Acid
A key component within our skin. It can be likened to ‘a tall glass of water for the face’ as this super hydrator is best known for its unique ability to hold up to a thousand times its weight in water, making it the ultimate complexion champion being responsible for hydration, smoothness, suppleness and glow.

Although a stimulant, it has soothing and antioxidant properties so helps protect skin exposed to UV light. It can penetrate the skin and has a constricting effect, which helps to calm skin prone to redness and sensitivity. 

A plant derived exceptional moisturiser, it acts as a barrier to keep moisture locked in so skin is soft, supple and plump for longer. This natural antioxidant emollient works well for all skin types, especially mature and is non-comedogenic and may help regulate excess oil production in acne-prone skin.

Balance Me skincare routine, Step 2: Exfoliate


"Such a great product to add to your Balance Me cleansing routine. Previously, I used gritty exfoliating creams, thinking I was giving my face a deep clean! Then I discovered this amazingly gentle, yet super effective exfoliator which I use several times a week. My skin is glowing and so soft. I rave about it to all my friends and even got my partner to start using it - and now he is hooked too."

Balance BHA Liquid Exfoliant

Written by Susanne Lyn Balsamo on 10th Nov 2022

This product works wonders. I received it in my Birchbox last year and have been hooked ever since!

Confidence in a bottle

Written by Rachel on 1st Nov 2022

I have been using this product for around 5 months, first got a sample from Look Fantastic in a beauty box, so pleased I didn't hand the sample to my little sister, to start, its smells lovely, clean citrus, the following morning after the first application, I noticed a difference. I thought, maybe just luck, but after continuous use, it has changed my skin completely. I have pale skin, prone to flushing and get hormonal breakouts on my chin, i would say my skin is combination skin, can get dry in winter and oily in summer. my chin breakouts are now minimal, i get the odd one but it comes and goes rather quickly, a lot less painfull too. dry patches are no longer. pores have shrunk, and look almost blurred. I am using one bottle and have two in my cupboard in fear they become out of stock. Please never change this formula, it is beautiful & works wonders for me. My routine: Double cleanse, Exfoliate & moisturise (all Balance me products, I'm a convert) If I have a pimple I will apply spot treatment to it at the very end, I use kefir cream by chuckling goat (not sure if I am aloud to mention other brands, but they work well together with Balance Me.)

Received this in my glossy box and loved it, makes such a difference to my skin and I had to find out where to buy it. I ordered the large bottle and it lasted a long time 100% worth the money and my skin is amazing.

Gentle yet poweful

Written by Laura on 15th Oct 2022

I was a little sceptical about this product as I had recently been using some of my teens skin cleaning toners and lotions, for the fact that they seem to clean really well. Though they strip the skin and make it tight and dry and this Balance Me product manages to clean and exfoliate the skin far better but almost effortlessly and really gently. It takes off a layer of dirt and dead skin cells but as if by magic! As there is no tightening or pain or dryness afterwards. Clearer, brighter skin as if by magic. I love this!


Written by Alannah on 18th Sep 2022

I HAD to buy this and try other products after receiving it in a beauty box subscription.. it’s absolutely fabulous! I have large pores and blackheads, after using this my skin feels and looks so refreshed, you can literally feel it tighten (in a good way) your skin, a little goes a long way!


Written by Helen on 6th Aug 2022

I didn't believe a liquid could produce the same results as a gritty exfoliator but this product has great results. I also love the dispenser, so easy to use. I suffer from very dry skin on my forehead and this makes such a difference.

Love this!

Written by Cami on 30th Jul 2022

I got a sample of this in my Birchbox and loved it! I hadn't been using an astringent in years, and this is so much better. than anything I've used over the years. I swear my pores are getting smaller. Crazy on this old skin! I'm in my late 50's and this seems to be making my skin look a wee bit younger! And I got the C-serum because a friend with amazing skin said she swears by her serums. I don't know what she uses, but I love balance me's C serum - OMG!
