Anyone w/issues with other salicylic products- try this!!!
Comments about RESIST BHA 9 Treatment - 0.3 oz:
I had issues with other BHA products/salicylic based from Paula's (i.e. SKIN PERFECTING 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant). Must be something else in the product. They made me break out more! Now, I put a dab of the Resist BHA 9 on a breakout & it is gone overnight! I am super thrilled and will now try this for fine lines, redness, enlarged pores. So happy!!!!!!!!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I find this product most useful as a spot treatment for dark marks/imperfections. Dispenser is horrible--leaks, and you get way more than you need for a spot treatment--big waste of money as this product is not inexpensive. Will buy the sample size only in the future--less wasteful.

Absolutely love product so far, but poor packaging this time
About Me Beauty Conscious
When I first started the using the product two years ago, I was thrilled and continued to re-purchase the BHA 9 because there really is nothing else like it out there. I have oily skin, large pores, and a stubborn chin.I use it alone at night over areas of concern--blemishes, sunspots, an old scar--and over time it has evened out my complexion and brings to the surface otherwise particularly difficult "undergrounders". (You know which ones I mean.) The gel itself is clear, and the texture is a sticky fluid (think syrup-like), so this is a strictly PM routine. No discernable scent from it.I use this in conjunction with sunscreen in the daytime. One purchase like this lasts me around 3 months before I need to repurchase. The product itself is fantastic, however, in my years of receiving this product I have never felt so compelled to write a review until now and this is due to poor packaging this time around. Given the formulation of this product, I absolutely understand the need for the dark tube and pump applicator. However, leakage has now occurred twice having since purchased this in Nov 2016 and that has really disheartened me as two spills from a 0.3 oz product is really wasteful. I physically cringe when it happens because it disappoints me so much. It occurs when the tube lays on its side, and the product leaks out from the top into the cap and when I pop it open to use, a large glob has spilled out onto my fingers. I travel often and while I do my utmost to keep the tube upright, jolts and shifts happen while en route and I'm not happy that the tube isn't able to withstand that. All in all, a great product, just a bad enough package experience this time to warrant my review.
Service and delivery comments:
Delivery was within the expected time frame, and as always, packaged neatly without an excessive amount of packaging waste (I'm comparing this to Amazon's yards and yards of package tissue in a large box that has a tiny product inside)
Pretty good but not miraculous
About Me Beauty Expert
Different people will react to this product differently so do give it a chance. It is pretty good - thank you Paula - but it did not clear all the uneven spots/pores. Even though I have rosacea, it did not irritate my skin. I expected heavy peeling, but it did not happen either. Nor did I find it greasy - it absorbs very quickly. I saw the results on my forehead, cheeks and chin, but it has not been effective clearing pores and small bumps on my nose and jaw area. My only disappointment is its size - it is tiny and 10 times smaller than Paula's 2 % BHA gel (which I cannot recommend enough) but it does not deliver 10 times the potency of the gel so it is hard to justify the price.

Not effective and wasteful packaging
This product was a waste of money. I used it to try and remove some white bumps under my eye area. Did absolutely nothing. A lot of product came out of the tube so there was a lot of waisted product.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Should be gel form
from New York, NY
About Me Minimalist
It is too runny to be used as spot treatment. It runs to larger area than suppose to thus irritate the skin. If you use it everyday, your skin will turn red for sure. If you use it 2-3 times a week, it is not effective. It cannot smooth bumpy skin. It is much worse than 2% BHA liquid.
Leaky package and product not good for my skin
I had a bad experience with this product, bad for my skin and the package leaked. When you press on the pump, it heavily leaks from the edge. I could have lived with that, but when I started using this product, it was leaving greasy areas on my skin on the surface I applied it. And it did nothing for my skin after 3 months of using it. Did nothing to my cysts, to the little pimples, or to my black spots. I am so disappointed, I had high hopes for this product, and so many good reviews..Paula's Choice, please do something about the package! The rest of the PC products, they're awesome!

This was the final step I needed!
I've been using Paula's products for a few months and while I was thrilled with my skin, I still had pores that were dark. I wouldn't call them black heads but that's what they looked like. And they'd been in my T zone for years. I asked a question on Facebook about how to get them cleaned out and this product was suggested. I ordered the sample size, have used it twice a week for two weeks and those black spots are 90% cleaned out. I'm thrilled with this! Before I had visible, dark pores...now I just have visible pores. My plan is to increase usage to three times a week, get them all cleaned out and cross my fingers that the pores become invisible! Paula's skincare has solved all my skin concerns, I'm not even using an eye product anymore, her stuff got rid of my puffy eyes! :) I'm ordering the full size today of the BHA 9.
Great Product, Irredeemable Packaging
from Atlanta, GA
I've had this for a couple days and it's already done wonders for my skin by reducing some large painful acne spots, HOWEVER it's nearly impossible to control how much product comes out of the pump. I would have given it 5 stars, but it's too expensive to have such a wasteful delivery system.

save your money
Don't waste your money. I have chronic blackheads on my nose and chin. I bought this product because of the great reviews. I started with a sample when i didn't see any improvement i thought maybe because it needs to be applied for a longer period. I bought the full size and have been using it consistently for month and no improvement at all. save your money.
