About Me Beauty Conscious
Comments about Resist BHA 9 Treatment - 0.3 oz:
This product is fantastic. It is the only thing I have found that pulls up those underground blemishes and gets rid of them within a couple of days rather than the weeks it was taking me. It feels like an emergency when I run out.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Helped with my acne!
By Skincare Junkie
from Tulsa, OK
This stuff is awesome! I suffer from cystic acne and this serum helps a ton with my breakouts. I've only been using it a week but I already notice my breakouts clearing up. I have a lot of left over red marks so I'm hoping with time this will help fade those too. I use 1 pump of this serum at night on my forehead, chin, and jawline. It feels a bit greasy at first but absorbs within 5 minutes. I then apply the Resist Advanced Replenishing toner as my moisturizer because it's milky and very moisturizing.

I have always had a little bit of milia beneath my eyes. It never really bothered me as there isn't much there and I can manage to cover it up with make up. However, there was one little bump that became inflamed / enlarged after I picked at it. The bump became noticeably larger. I was thinking I would have to go and get it removed professionally - that's how much it was bugging me. Well...luckily I got my hands on the BHA 9 treatment. I ordered a sample size and used it every night for about 4-5 days. I can now say that the little bump is non- existent and my eye area has returned to normal. Very good product! I did buy the full size bottle after knowing this actually works.
With a name like that...
from Victoria, British Columbia
When I saw the name of this product and the number of things it claims to do, of course I had to try it! I've been a Paula's Choice Junkie lol for a couple years now. What stuck out to me besides all the things it says it can do in the description is that I have sebaceous that really bugs me but the doctor said the little, white bumps between my cheeks and undereye are too small for her to treat. I remember a boy pointing them out in junior high and I hadn't noticed them until then & now I can't HELP but notice them.So when I saw that this product minimizes them along with unclogs pores & smooth & soften skin, etc...I purchased it among a number of other Paula's Choice products. I keep trying new things & so far definitely have found some gems I can't live without like the Vitamin C spot treatment. That combined with an aha product & the BHA Lotion from Paula's Choice are helping the tremendous amount of melasma I am trying to clear up. *Who knew that medical issues like a wonky thyroid & adrenal gland problems can speed up the melasma on your skin!!!Anyways, I have used the Resist BHA 9 Treatment religiously, even trying it in combination with my other Paula's Choice products...but sadly, I didn't see any change or benefit in the least. It's really too bad because I had high hopes with the amount of benefits it claims to help your skin. Unclog pores with the first useDiminish white bumpsMinimize enlarged poresRefine and smooth skin's textureMinimize sebaceous hyperplasiaSmooth and soften dry, rough patchesHelp balance oily skinFade red marks from breakoutsReduce breakouts
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Great for closed comedones & nipping breakouts in the bud!
By Happy pores
from Arlington, VA
This along with the 2% BHA liquid were my first Paula's Choice products ever, & I have nothing but great things to say about this product & the great customer service I received!I originally bought Resist BHA 9 to battle the closed comedones/skin colored bumps I've had on my forehead for YEARS, but it helped pimples vanish overnight too (definitely a pleasant surprise!). I've been using this product every night for the past 3 weeks (after using 2% BHA liquid exfoliant) and I'd say about 60% of my clogged pores (which haven't responded to anything else) are completely gone! The few I have left are very stubborn, but have definitely improved with daily use of this product. In terms of frequency of usage, I can't use this more than once a day even though I have somewhat oily skin. When I tried using in the morning & evening, my skin started flaking. It's also a rather thick formula, so it doesn't work too great under makeup during the day anyway. Once a day before bed is definitely the way to go! Finally, although I have been having issues with my bottle (I think the airtight seal on mine is broken causing excess product to leak out from the base of the pump), customer service was quick to respond to my concern (less than 24 hrs!) & is shipping me a replacement.I'm 100% a Happy customer & officially hooked on Paula's Choice :)

Did not work at all
Nothing worse than a reviewer writing jury still out or wanted to like this, we all want to like what we buy. i always give proper time to allow the product to work or in this case. Not. I allowed 2 months and tried on 2 acne scRs which I scar red not brown, this was recommended for red marks. Also tried on a minor breakout and a blackhead. This did not do anythig at all for all three problems.my 2% works faster.did I get a bad batch? Not sure, the tiem released formula may the issue although 9% not time released would burn like crazy, seemed to work for others but not for me and again, i gave the proper time to allow results.

Excellent Spot Treatment + Extra BHA Boost
from Southern California
Resist BHA 9 Treatment is an amazing product. I struggle with blackheads on my t-zone (mostly on my nose and chin) and the rare breakout. I use this as the final step in my skincare routine, which includes the PC4 Men Soothe and Smooth. (I purchased it when the Resist BHA liquid was out of stock and PC customer service told me it was the same product. I love that PC has crossover products with the men's line!) I use it as both a spot treatment on any red bumps and marks, which helps the bumps disappear and diminishes the marks. I also use it on my nose to help further decrease the number of blackheads and shrink a few large pores around the area. I use it for other things as well because it is a wonderful multipurpose product that helps with everything from fine lines to blackheads. I've already bought two trial sizes and I will likely commit to the full size in the future. I love PC's skincare and this one is a must have in my routine.

Bang for a buck!
from Philadelphia, PA
Just amazing!! You can see a progress in just a one day!! And it's not just a small change that only you can notice!! My skin problem was acne/skin imperfection/enlarged pores. For some reason, I've got a terrible break-outs, just recently. I was so stressed out since I've never had this kind of problem before. I've got a few big zits and my skin felt bumpy because of small whiteheads. And the breakouts left red-ish brown acne scars.Nothing worked until I started using this product! Even though I've only used it only a couple of days, I definitely see a difference. My skin feels much smoother, the bigger zits are diminished, pores are smaller and acne-scars are fading. And people seems to notice it as well. Some people are saying that the product is too expensive. But if you consider how effective it is, this is not true at all. And you're saving much more than seeing your dermatologist or getting a laser treatment. I feel like my skin problem will be totally gone within a month if I keep using it every day.
Must have for oily clogged pores.
from Rochester, MI
Ever since my hormonal acne erupted in college my skin has been so oily and bumpy esp. around my T-zone. This led to those troublesome clogged pores that has now made me so self-conscious about my face since my pores became enlarged. I've tried pore strips and countless drug-store salicylic acids/BHAs, which I've read help with large clogged pores, but they did absolutely nothing for my skin. I'm can't tell you how happy I was to have come across Paula's Choice BHAs esp. the Resist BHA 9, which is now the product I will never live without. I found that the Resist BHA 9 is actually less irritating and much more gentle than Paula's Choice BHA 2% (the BHA 2% made my skin peeled in layers). So gentle that I can use it every day. The Resist BHA 9 is very effective on clogged pores. A few minutes after application, I can dragged my fingers across my nose and a few blackheads and sebaceous follicles would come lose, literally. It also help to smooth out the bumpy texture I had around my T-zone and help reduce the amount of whiteheads I would get weekly. My skin routine includes 1 small pump of the Resist BHA 9 on my oily T-zone nightly and BHA 2% every other night.

Yikes, this see,Ed to make my pores MORE congested.
from Washington, D.C.
I've been using this daily for a week to try to get rid of some stubborn congestion in my t-zone, but it not only did not work but seemed to make the situation much worse. This is the only thing I changed in my routine.
