pH 2.3

Control oily skin, acne, blackheads, whiteheads.

Our beta hydroxy serums are salicylic acid based at a low pH level.

Deep clean your pores with the strength of your choice, 3-4 times per week to keep deeply embedded sebum and dirt under control.

Additionally, for clients with extremely oily skin, our serum can be used as a first step before using our lactic and glycolic acid peels.

This is an EFFECTIVE acid based product.  We have formulated these products at a safe percentage, but a low pH level to ensure good acidity without irritation.

Instructions listed above, under corresponding tab.

As with any acid-based product, be sure to patch-test your skin and discontinue use if irritation develops. 

Acne sufferers:
It takes approximately 2-3 weeks for pores to decongest, so please be patient as the product is working to open your pores and clean deeply embedded dirt and sebum.


--Because salicylic acid is in the aspirin-family, it's important for clients who are allergic to aspirin to avoid salicylic acid usage. 

--If you are pregnant, consult with your OB/GYN before using chemically-based products.
General Cautions:
  • Never use manual exfoliators nor scrubbing brushes within 24 hours of using a peel.
  • Stop Retin A, benzoyl peroxides, acne products and any other drying agents 24 hours before and after using an alpha hydroxy or beta hydroxy peel.
  • If you are allergic to aspirin products, never use a salicylic acid nor beta hydroxy peel.
  • Never apply a peel without doing a patch-test first and waiting 48 hours for results.
  • Never apply a chemical peel to inflamed skin.
  • Always read product directions in their entirety and don't take shortcuts.
  • Use our BellEvolve Advanced Repair Cream for skin that has been chemically over processed.  It contains advanced healing agents that will quickly get your skin back to normal.
  • When in doubt about a caution, please write or call us for more information.
  • Disclaimer:
    When used as directed, our chemical products are safe and extremely effective. Please follow all written directions exactly as they are presented in our instructional materials.  You are solely responsible for their proper usage.  Makeup Artist's Choice assumes no responsibility/liability for consequences/injuries/actions as a result of using our products.  Acid-based products are formulated to improve appearance and are in no way intended to diagnose, treat, cure, prevent disease or replace the advice of a qualified medical professional.  Keep out of reach of children.  Misuse of chemical products can cause injury and burns, so please follow all directions exactly as they are written.

    Finally, a product that works!
    So I just received and tried the 3% beta hydroxy. I bought it with hope but expected to be disappointed as per usual. I am in my 40's and have very oily t zone with enlarged and clogged pores. Believe me, I have tried every product out there from the cheapest to the most expensive. Spa Glycolic facials, spa microdermabrasion, etc, etc and every drug store brand. Even prescription cream (Differin) all to no avail. I used the 3% and then looked at my skin with a magnifying mirror. I was stunned at the amount of blackheads that had been brought to the surface. Even pores I presumed to be clogged or whiteheads were actually blackheads. I was as disgusted as I was amazed! Also, typically my foundation begins to wear off on my t zone with a few hours and I am left with an oil slick. I carry blotting papers for this purpose. After using the beta to cleanse my t zone, I didn't have any oil for the entire day and evening. Seriously, I sometimes presume that raving reviews are placed there by the website, I can testify that it worked as promised

    Cure for Oily Skin
    I never liked toners or astringents and the sticky, smelly residue they left on my skin. This is not really a serum, but more similar to a very strong astringent that you wash off after 5-8 min, which leaves your skin amazingly clean, soft, and tight. It is safe to use up to every other day, regardless of other peels and treatments you're doing. After I turned 30, my acne prone skin became increasingly oily, to the point that I had to blot my face every few hours and had increasing cystic breakouts. This is not only great at keeping the oil under control, it will stop most pimples dead in their tracks. I use it all over my face every other night with higher concentration on spots where I feel a deep pimple forming, and so far the deep pimples have never made it to the surface. This makes the majority of my breakouts vanish within a day. I began derma-rolling to help minimize my acne scars which are more visible now that my skin is the clearest it has been since my early teens. I use this beta hydroxy before rolling to make sure I don't embed any dirt or oil deeper into my pores, and apply the Bellevolve Uplevity serum for tightness and advanced repair for healing. The result is the most youthful, tight, fresh looking skin I've had in years. I also do light to medium strength lactic or glycolic peels once a week for exfoliation, followed by argan oil for 24-48 hrs and retinol serum once I've healed, and cannot stress how my skin has improved with this routine. After only a couple of months, my skin looks more than 5 years younger, my persistent acne that refused to improve for 15+ years with any/every over the counter and prescription product available, has cleared up more than 90%. I love the products from MUAC - they are all amazingly effective and very reasonably priced, especially when I count the hundreds of dollars I spent trying products that didn't work. I'm not embarrassed to let people see me without makeup, the glycolic body lotion and weekly peels has cleared up my body acne and allowed me to wear tank tops in the summer for the first time in my adult life. Very happy with this and the other products I've tried here.

    I have only used drug store 2% BHA's and was never impressed. Then I tried this and my view on BHA's has completely changed. I can actually see this product working by bringing my blackheads to the surface and when rinsed most are gone. It also helps with clogs just under the skin but much slower. I bought this to allow my skin to get used to BHA's and will be buying the 8% next. I think this product is great for people with mild acne and have high hopes that the 8% will finally clear my more sever acne.

    3% Beta Hydroxy Serum
    This is my first review here on MUAC and it's a real pleasure to write it as Im very satisfied with this product. The 3% Beta Hydroxy Serum is a great product to begin with, especially if you have combo to oily skin with large pores clogged with blackheads. It begins a process of deep cleansing of the pores. Ive graduated to the 8% Beta Hydroxy Serum now and will soon be up to the 15% Salicylic Acid Peel. I urge anyone reading this review to try this product and others from MUAC. Every product Ive tried has been exceptional. Ive never had the success with any other products on the market that Ive had with these. My skin is showing major improvements and that says it all to me. There reall is no reason not to try these products with the samples that are available. You have great options here and you'll find that these products work!

    3% Beta Hydroxy Serum
    I ordered the .5 size to use as a topical under my makeup. I am using Mandelic Serum and Niacinamide on alternate nights. This serum wears really well under my SPF and makeup. I had been using a 2% salicylic acid spot treatment all over my face during the day and it would ball up under my SPF. This serum goes on effortlessly and stays out under SPF and foundation. With continued use of MUAC products I'll be able to skip foundation altogether pretty soon.

    Blackheads be gone!
    One of the first MUAC purchases I made. I've been using this on and for about a year. I switched between this strength and the 8%. Very effective in decongesting the skin and doing it quickly. Start off with this strength before moving on to the 8%. The 8% was no joke. The leap in strength can not be underestimated. I recommend the 3% for someone whose breakouts vary (hormonal; a few spots of low concern here and there). I use this every other day or two days and I adore the feeling after rinsing my face because it leaves a cool feeling on the skin.

    product is ok
    I purchased this product thinking it would help for maintenance in between my peels but all it really did was shrink pores which is great but I purchased the 8% beta serum hopefully that helps to reduce my acne a bit better
