Comments about RESIST BHA 9 Treatment - 0.3 oz:
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!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Helps with bumps
About Me Beauty Conscious
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.

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!

About Me Beauty Expert
If you have stubborn blackheads this is the only product on the market that delivers any real results. I have tried the BHA 2% liquid which is a phenomenal product in general for reviving the skin. However, for stubborn blackheads it didn't go far enough for me. I was expecting this product to be irritating but it is actually one of the gentlest formulas I've used. Because it is so well cushioned with ingredients like glycerin you really just feel like your putting on a serum, it actually feels very moisturising yet is working to get rid of blemishes. I am not a fan of the BHA 4% foam, it has a lot more ingredients and thus my skin seemed a lot more irritated by it and I didn't see any results after 4 months of continual use. The BHA 9 has blown me away, a simple, gentle, effective product. It loosens blackheads so that they are easily extracted and has significantly reduced the size of my pores all over my face. My skin looks healthy after each use. I use it every second night and after two weeks my blackheads were gone and the pores on my nose were clear and small for the first time in years. The disappointing element of BHA 9 is the price, it would be a blessing if it was more affordable as it is a product that should be feasible to all customers and while I get that it is a unique formula that contains 9% BHA I think you'd see a lot more hype about it if it was cheaper. It's a brilliant product, but the price makes it extremely unattainable.

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.

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...

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

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.
