Excellent product but does nothing for sebaceous hyperplasia
About Me Minimalist
Comments about RESIST BHA 9 Treatment - 0.3 oz:
I have been using this product for 18+ months. I am in my early 40s and have suffered from oily skin and acne since my teenage years. I bought this product because the website says it may help with sebaceous hyperplasia, which I started getting about 8 years ago a few months after completing a round of oral isotretinoin. This product does nothing for the sebaceous hyperplasia, even in conjunction with the recommended toner and following with Retin-A. However, I still use this product because it minimizes my chances for getting those painful, big red bumps, and if I do get one, this stuff helps it go away within 2-3 days. I think my skin is more even in color and smoother as well. Make sure you use a good sunscreen if you use this product, though.I dislike the container - it's hard to control the pump, and the price per ounce is crazy high. Just try to buy it on sale! I don't expect to stop using this product anytime soon.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Say Goodbye to Under Eye Milia!
from Washington, DC
About Me Beauty Conscious
I was desperate to remove a protruding, hard, white milia bump from under my eye. I bought the sample size vial to see if it could help do anything for me. I applied it every other evening to my under eye area as the last step to my nightly routine. I noticed the treatment was helping to lift the milia bump out of my skin! By then, the sample was gone but I was so impressed - I purchased one more sample sized vial to get rid of my milia once and for all. A few more uses into the fresh sample, the milia bump fell out of my skin and my under eye was finally smooth again! This treatment got rid of the irritating bump and healed my delicate skin. Could not be more impressed with my experience with this product!!!

Gets the Job Done
from Upland, CA
About Me Beauty Expert
I have INCREDIBLY sensitive skin, and was pleasantly surprised to find that this highly potent formula hasn't irritated my complexion at all. This product works great as a night treatment to treat pimples and help them heal quickly, as well as reduce stubborn texture spots. It has a very tacky finish, probably due to the time-release formula, so it can't wear under make up at all and works best when used before bed. I recommend putting a band-aid or hydrocolloid bandage over the spot with the product on it to maximize it's effectiveness, as that keeps it from rubbing off on your pillow throughout the night. It won't work on super-deep cystic pimples that don't surface, but I've found it works well on pretty much any other type of pimple.

Works great. Here's a tip for dispensing.
from Portland, OR
OK, people. I'm a 60 year old guy, and this product really helps clear up the blackheads and large pores on my nose that I've lived with most of my life. I experienced a lot of peeling when I first used it, so I stopped. Then I gave it another try. After several weeks, the peeling problem seemed to resolve itself. I guess that I had a lot of old dead skin layers to remove.It works best when I apply it every day...and twice a day, both morning and night. Pores are much smaller, and most of the clogs are eliminated. My skin still flakes a tiny bit, but it's a small trade-off.Also, buy both the sample size and the large size. Use the sample size first. When it's empty, you can pump more product from the large container into the sample size container. It's easy to control the product amount when you take it from the sample size container. Plus, the "stopper" in the sample size container seems to be airtight/watertight -- I've taken it on a number of flights, and it's never leaked.Finally, the price seems high at first, but you need only a tiny amount for each use, so one container lasts literally for months. Well worth the money.

Not Satisfied with the product
from New York
I'm a long time user of BHA 2% exfoliant and loved it, so I came back for more of paula's choice. After reading all the positive reviews about he product I went ahead and purchased the product expecting that it would solve my issue with oil prone nose more throughly. However, after months of usage as instructed, I have not notice any change to my pore appearance.I believe that it might just be me that has this issue because others seem to have good results from it, sadly I haven't notice any change from using it despite my high expectation. The product was just a waste of money, from my own personal experience of the product, perhaps it's just me specifically.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Resist BHA 9 Works Great but is way too expensive!!!
from Kingston, Ontario, Canada
I use the product at bedtime after cleansing followed by the Clear Extra Strength Exfoliant, I wait about 15 minutes and apply the BHA 9. I apply it all over my face as I have sebaceous hyperplasia. I absolutely LOVE the product. My skin is much better when I use it. My problems with it: the cost, the cost to your faithful Canadian customers - with the exchange rate it is exorbitant. And the container size - please, please, please make it larger and more affordable. Please. I hope Paula staff read these!

Seen results with just the sample size!
from miami, fl
After trying every kind of mud mask and pore strip available on the market can finally say I have found a blackhead/pore size reducing product that actually WORKS! I ordered a sample size of this product along with the Niacinamide booster to see if I could finally combat my stubburn enlarged pores and blackheads that I have dealt with for 10+ years. After just a few days of applying the Niacinamide on my nose in the a.m. and the BHA9 on my nose in the p.m. I noticed that when applying my makeup with a brush my blackheads/comedones were literally Falling out of my nose! I couldnt belive how fast the results were and the fact that my skin didn't get dried out or irritated from using it. Only con I have is that this cost a pretty penny!!!

About Me Skin Care Professional
I use this product daily at night. It really gets those zits to come out quickly and the turnover time for skin renewal is amazing. My skin feels smoother and my hormonal acne is clearing up. This is after only using it for a couple of weeks. I can't imagine how my skin will be with further use. I've tried everything from the derma dr. and am very impressed with this OTC product. Will definitely continue use of this product. The only thing I can complain about is the small quantity in which it is sold. I know it's a spot treatment, but my spots are all over my face. Would like a larger bottle. It's a little pricey but compared to other products it's worth every penny, cause it works!

Helps with bumps
I have been using PC skincare products for years and get compliments on how smooth and young I look but recently decided due to age 51 and uneven skin tone around chin and upper lip, I would move to the advanced skincare routine. I studied what PC products I wanted to add and thought this would help with the bumps I get on my chin and jawline.I read the reviews on how well it worked. I usually pick and squeeze the bumps hoping what is underneath comes out and this causes red marks and hyperpigmentation of the area. I had a sample of this and decided to give it a try.I am pleased to report that within one to two night time applications the bump areas below the skin disappear. This is a big help as now I don't have to feel as if I need to pick and irritate the area.I apply the BHA9 to the bumpy area, a little dab, as the last step in my evening skin care routine as needed.

By Grandma Toni
from Denver, CO
I was nervous that the 9% would be drying and/or irritating so I first bought the trial size and was pleasantly surprised with how well the product smoothed out facial imperfections with no irritation or drying. I dispense a drop of the fluid into the palm of my hand and then pat this over small blackheads and/or under-the-skin blemishs. I also dab it over rough patches of skin. I can use it 1-2 times a day and have had zero irritation.This is a great formula that really works!
