Comments about RESIST BHA 9 Treatment - 0.3 oz:
I use this stuff quite rear, because often it is too harsh on my skin and causes redness and flakiness, but what I hate most is the dispenser - every time I push it the product sprays all around and tones is wasted.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great product, hate the packaging
from Washington, DC
About Me Beauty Conscious
This product does exactly what it says it does. It has give my chin and forehead great relief from closed comedones I was struggling with. I have dry skin and it has not dried it out at all. I believe that less is more with a product like this and the packaging makes it hard to use little product. One pump is too much for spot treating my whole face and it's very difficult to do a half pump. But, the product works and you can't beat that!

Great product, poor packaging
About Me Minimalist
The product itself gets five stars - it has cleared up adult acne and blemishes that have persistently plagued my skin (especially my chin) for almost twenty years. No drying, no peeling, just clear skin.The packaging, however, is terrible and gets zero stars. While I appreciate that the current packaging protects the product from light and air, it's a nightmare to use. It leaks constantly, even when standing straight up, cap on, and is only in motion for the 10 seconds it takes every night to dispense a drop or two of the product. It's frustrating that so much product gets wasted due to the packaging.

I found out that it is great to use on "barnacles of life". Used it on them for a period of time and mine just disappeared! The only thing bad about it is the price. I don't understand why it would be so expensive, and yes, I can disperse too much when pumped.

While the BHA Liquid works fine to me, this BHA 9 is throwing me back to acne nightmare by just a sample trial. My skin is not so sensitive but this product really dries my skin up and gives me acne that I haven't had for a long time. THINK TWICE BEFORE YOUR PURCHASE.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Helps minimize & clear pores
from Atlanta, GA
I'm really happy with this product and have seen overnight changes in the clarity of my pores and emerging blemishes. My skin is aging yet I still have occasional blemishes that are so annoying because they linger under the surface for a long time, hurt, and don't come to a head like pimples I had in my teens and 20s. This product works as described: it seems to dissolve the blemish before it heads, reduces visibly clogged pores and, somewhat, the size of my pores too. I tried it on my husband too (who used to use the Biore pore strips) and it made a huge difference in one use. This product has not been too drying for me -- using it about 1-2x per week at night. The texture is a cross between greasy and sticky, so it is best to put in on, not touch your face and wait about 10-15 min before hitting the pillow.

I didn't see any improvement. Was deligent with use. Way over priced. Live PC and am frequent purchaser but disappointed to see prices creeping up. Now retired on fixed income & will probably have to let this luxury go due to cost.

Works no better than time for erasing blemishes
I still get acne on my chin and forehead, despite being in my 30s. This product has a slick, greasy texture and does nothing to clear up any of the bumps or clogged pores. To top things off, the dispenser pumps out far too much product unless one is exceedingly careful and depresses it ever-so-lightly, and even then, the product seeps out from around the dispenser. Purchasing this ineffective product was an expensive mistake that I won't be making again.
Service and delivery comments:
Delivery was prompt and the product arrived seemingly undamaged, but the dispenser has recently started leaking despite having sat on a shelf in a cool, dark place without exposure to temperature or humidity fluctuations.

I have enlarged pores on my nose. On my nose, it didn't do anything very noticeable on its own. It worked great when I used it in combination with pore strips, using the pore strips every 2 weeks or so and using this to prevent blackheads from returning. This combination changed the skin on my nose to the point where the pores on my nose are not as visible and I don't have many very noticeable blackheads. I've gotten the same results from using other BHA products, but this product is the best that I have tried bc it doesn't dry out my skin and it works very well with moisturizers and makeup.On the rest of my face, I put it on as soon as there's any itchy or tingly sensation and it helps prevent further irritation and bumps.BUT the packaging is the WORST--there's a lot of waste and it's not easy to control the dispensed amount. For instance, I took it on a trip with me and it leaked into the cap. To give you an idea of how much was wasted, when I opened it to use it, it got all over the stuff on the vanity and dripped on my hands and sleeves. There was still good amount of it left in the cap. The pump works unpredictably in terms of required pressure and direction of the pour. Often, when I open the cap, I find the product pooled around the joint between the pump and the container even though I store this right side up with my toothbrush. A flexible tube or something with a pipette would work better.I would recommend this to people who don't mind paying a lot of money and the hassle of dealing with terrible packaging.
