About Me Beauty Conscious
Comments about 2% BHA Liquid - 4 oz:
I love this product. A friend recommended it and at first I bought the trial size. I noticed a difference in the texture of my skin. Recently I have noticed a lot of bumps and clogged pores on my face. After using this they have diminished for sure. I still have a few bumps and as gross as it sounds, this product seems to bring them more to the surface that I am able to squeeze the stuff out of my pore. When my trial was finished, I decided to try the lotion instead as I typically like lotions over liquids. That was a mistake. Within a day or so my face seemed bumpy again. I immediately returned and repurchased a full size of the liquid. I noticed my skin was smoother in almost one day from it. It really makes your face so soft. I love to dermaplane using the Tinkle face razors (google it!) and then applying this after. It does feel a bit tacky on your skin, but I don't mind it as I put it on at night and feel it is really working it's magic while I sleep. This has become a staple in my skincare routine!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Another overhyped product
from Albany, CA
I really wanted to like this product, especially after reading so many rave reviews. I decided this would be something good to use every night underneath a moisturizer before going to bed, however I could not get past the tacky feeling it leaves on my face. For that reason, I haven't been able to use it consistently because I dread leaving it on. Additionally because it coats your skin, it's hard to assess whether or not you are using ample moisturizer/other products....As far as the impact it has on my skin....some days it shrinks my pores noticeably, other days it doesn't. It doesn't do much as far as cleaning out my pores or any other of the listed affects it's supposed to have. It definitely is not a good replacement for other exfoliating products. Sigh.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Have beening using this for almost half a year, this has been such a gift for my skin. I use to break out a lot for unknown reasons. But since i start to use this, i barely broke out and my skin feels so smooth. Highly recommend for combination and oily skin.
Made Me Break Out
from Chicago, IL
I wanted to love this product -- as it seemed designed for some of my issues (enlarged pores, oily skin, etc). However, my skin is also sensitive, and the first time I used it, I woke up the next morning with an itchy flare up of acne. Thinking perhaps it was due to some other factor, I have tried it again twice, and both times, again broke out in itchy red bumps. It has to be this product. I'm disappointed.
ALL THAT AND A BAG OF CHIPS!!

Irritated my skin
I have sensitive / combination skin which is prone to acne so I tried this but it wasn't for me. It irritated my skin. Perhaps it was something in the base - not sure.My favourite (non-irritating) PC exfoliants that I'm currently using:CALM Redness Relief 1% BHA Lotion ExfoliantCLEAR Regular Strength Anti-Redness Exfoliating Solution With 2% Salicylic AcidSKIN PERFECTING 8% AHA Gel Exfoliant

This stuff is the bomb

About Me Minimalist
i have been using this product for ~ 15 years (yes really, I can barely believe that myself). Its a crucial part of my skincare regime & really does help keep my pores unclogged & tightened. When I follow my Paula Regime my skin looks amazing & I receive many compliments. Recently I was traveling for ~ 6 months & ran out. No big deal I thought my skin has been so good for so long I'm sure I can go a month or 2 without Paulas products. WRONG. My pores got clogged, I got loads of blackheads & broke out. Within a couple of weeks of using her range again (specifically this BHA & the hydrogen peroxide blemish cream) my skin was back to 'normal' & I was getting compliments again. Phew!. I really do love the whole range but this exofoliator in particular is really excellent & I won't ever be without it again!
Please never stop making this

Does everything AND MORE!!!!!!
Breakouts every time I use it!
from Washington, DC
I bought this awhile back and have tried adding it into my regime multiple times, but it always makes me breakout! I use it for a week or two and start getting horrible breakouts. I contacted a PC customer service rep at one point who said that I just had to get through the breakouts, as your skin is basically "purging" and then it's amazing, but I have never been able to make it to the "amazing" part. I think I have unsuccessfully tried this about 5x now, and I am giving up. BHA must not be for me :( Disappointed because it gets such great reviews! My skin isn't typically very sensitive so I was bummed. The only PC product that I haven't loved so far!

OK - Not Great - Burns
I have combo oil/dry sensitive skin. In the cold months it gets very tight and peels in some spots but stays oily around my forehead and chin with uneven redness throughout. I wash my face morning/night and use a lightweight sensitive moisturizer at least twice daily. I decided to give this a go because of all the postive reviews but unfortunately it doesn't do much for me. The first week it noticeably made my skin overall feel tighter and softer but as I continue to use it the more I notice it burns when I apply it. Specifially around my cheeks/chin and nose area. That area becomes red and I have to immediately apply my daily moisturizer to "calm" down the angry skin. Once it dries I feel okay but have noticed an increase in breakouts in places I haven't normally had issues with like around my nostril, upper lip/cheek area. For me it doesn't do the trick, I think I will cut back to using it maybe twice a week to see if that helps but the search continues for me to find a skin perfecting formula that really benefits me all around.
