I think works, not spectacular but it works.

Comments about 2% BHA Liquid - 4 oz:
I always use the 2% BHA liquid in the morning and the evening. It never really caused a sensitizing reaction. I love that is fragrance free. My nose gets a little bit red after aplication but I've heard it's normal. I love that when I'm swiping the product with the cotton pad it leaves a visible trace where I've put the product so I can see everything, and it vanishes completely after a minute or two. It never made my skin worse, which I'm thankful for. It only made my skin kind of "put together" which is not as many breakouts, pores are definitelly smaller and not as black as before but not gone completely (It needs more time). I wouldn't say this "rapidly" unclogs pores but I do can tell it works at least. My complexion is evening out, skin texture is softer and less bumpy. Maybe with time + with some extractions from qualified cosmetologist I'll get rid of blackheads completely. It is one of the products that you can actually see that it's doing something without irritation, it's not drying too. :)
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

About Me Beauty Conscious
I use this twice a day for the last couple of months, after cleansing and before moisturizing. I think it has really helped unclog my congested pores on my forehead, but it hasn't had the miraculous results that some other reviews touted. I did go off of oral birth control, so this may have prevented the breakouts that I was warned about. I did order another bottle, so I will keep with it. The liquid texture is nice.

Smoothed my bumpy face!
from Houston, Texas
I started using this exfoliant this summer and after a few weeks, it smoothed the bumpy texture on my cheeks that I acquired from years of constant hormonal acne. I don't have terrible acne problems anymore, but it left my cheeks with red, constantly irritated skin and a very bumpy texture along with a few brown spots. This exfoliant has definitely smoothed down the bumps and improved the texture in that area of my face. I do get the occasional little pimple now and then and I have noticed that since I started using this exfoliant, the pimples are gone within 24 hours. However the acne marks they leave are still there, but the shortened pimple lifespan is awesome! Plus having a smoother face is definitely better for makeup application too.I was hoping that this would help with the redness from my acne marks, but I have yet to find a product that works for that. I also don't like that it takes a little while to absorb, and if I apply my whole skin care routine all at once, the layers are really greasy together, so I have to wait a little bit in between products, but I don't normally wait longer than a minute after each application.When I started using this product I didn't have much of a skin care routine other than cleanser and moisturizer, but I have now expanded into using a toner and serum, and will be adding vitamin c to my routine. This product made me see how important skin care was and what a difference it can make!

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!
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
from San Francisco
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!
