Re: Retention Bonus Dear Dan:
As you know, The Beauty Health Company (the “Company”) desires to have you remain with the Company in your current role. We consider your continued service and dedication to the Company to be critical to our business success. To incentivize you to remain employed with the Company, we are pleased to offer you a retention bonus, as described in this letter agreement.

In recognition of your continued service with the Company through and until December 31, 2022 (the "Retention Period"), we are offering you a retention bonus in the amount of 371,196.54 less all applicable withholdings and deductions required by law (the "Retention Bonus").

You will be eligible to receive this Retention Bonus if all of the following eligibility criteria are satisfied:

1.Your performance has been satisfactory, as determined in the Company’s sole discretion, from the date of this agreement through the end of the Retention Period.
2.You are actively employed by the Company on the last day of the Retention Period.
3.You have not given notice of your intent to resign from employment on or before the last day of the Retention Period.
4.The Company has not given you notice of its intent to terminate your employment on or before the last day of the Retention Period; provided, however, that you will be eligible to receive a pro rata portion of the Retention Bonus if the Company gives you notice of its intent to terminate your employment other than for cause, as determined in the Company's sole discretion, on or before the last day of the Retention Period and you
satisfy all of the other eligibility criteria.

If you are eligible to receive the Retention Bonus, it will be paid to you in one lump sum cash payment within 30 days after the end of the Retention Period.

Your employment remains at-will, meaning that you and the Company] may terminate the employment relationship at any time, with or without cause, and with or without notice.

All other agreements between the Company any you related to, without limitation, Arbitration, Severance, Trade Secrets, Proprietary Information, shall remain in full force and effect. This letter agreement may not be amended or modified unless in writing signed by both the Chief Human Resources Officer and you.
