I'm sold, and I don't buy stuff like this often
I'm 37, and have struggled with persistent moderate-plus acne since the age of 12. If my math is correct, that's... more than a few years. Honestly, I had kind of come to terms with it, but an online acquaintance convinced me to try a BHA liquid, and recommended this one (and a PC cleanser, but that's a whole 'nother review).To say that a skincare liquid has changed my life seems really petty and vain (and is probably something of an exaggeration), but breaking out of my "need to wear make-up to cover up breakouts, but makeup makes me breakout" cycle has been surprisingly liberating. I still get the occasional hormonal breakout, but with consistent application of this fine stuff, (a) clears itself up within a day or two, and (b) doesn't leapfrog from pore to pore across my face.I'm not wildly in love with the... I don't know, whatever one might call the feeling it leaves on my skin about 15 minutes after application, but I am more than happy to push through by (a) going to bed right after my nighttime application, and (b) putting on a light moisturizer after my morning application, which seems to cut the odd feeling. In my case, the benefits more than outweigh the negatives

About Me Tried It All
I ordered samples of this, as I was skeptical because it's rare that Anything works on my skin. I have had a lot of congested pores for most of my life. I've tried SO many different things. I swear after only a couple day's of this, I saw less clogged pores. It's been a little over a week now and I notice it's getting better every day. I love how it soaks right in and literally disappears. And that a little goes a long way. I also use with the RESIST Balancing Toner, I am not 100% sure which product to give the credit too but I feel it is likely this!!
Where has this been all my life?

About Me Beauty Conscious
I love all my PC products, but this little jewel has been a true game changer for me. I'm 61 yrs. old, and thot I'd just have to deal w/ large, clogged pores for the rest of my life, because I had been up until I found how awesome this product is. I realize the other routine products come into play also, of course, however, this is definitely my "desert island" choice. It has totally changed my skin. Been using it 4 months now. I wear much less foundation because my skin is so much smoother; not just a patch of large open pores I must try to camouflage like it was before. My skin is not nearly so oily, either. I will never be without PC 2% BHA Liquid again. It's my self confidence in a bottle. Thank you, Paula Begoun!

Amazing. Skin is clearest it's been in 3+ years

About Me Skincare Junkie
Although this was a little drying for my skin type, it honestly works wonders. I use this with a gentle cleanser (not PC), then I wipe some of this magical liquid on, then I follow with an oil free moisfurizer (with SPF in the day), and of course my face ice cream (not PC). I thought my acne problems were gone by the time I reached my early 20s. I grew up with awful whiteheads and acne, so when my face started flaring up again 3 years ago, I knew this was going to be an uphill battle. I've used birth control, prescription creams, proactiv, acutane, you name it. Nothing made my skin consistently clear, without any harsh side effects. Within 4 days on this BHA liquid my cystic acne, whiteheads and blackheads were all gone. The texture of my skin is so smooth. I'm two weeks into using this product and even my scars look like they are fading. I am so pleased with the results. I rarely ever stick to a product for more than 2-3 months. I have a feeling I will use this for at least the next few years!!Some advice: try incorporating this once a day for the first week. Then on the second week you can increase the usage to twice a day. This should allow your skin to adjust to the new routine without overdrying or getting irritated. If you live in a cold, dry climate like me, invest in a good oil free moisturizer for night time

My skin is very sensitive to comedogenic ingredients and even the best skin products have some of them, so my face is usually covered in bumps. After using 2% bha liquid I couldn't recognize my skin - it became smooth and shiny. If you have sensitive/dry skin like I do, don't forget to use moisturiser after this liquid.

I have blackheads that I was very hopeful this would help me improve but after two months of using this twice a day I see no improvement.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Smooth and rids whiteheads and diminishes wrinkles!! BIG TIM
I started using this product for a specific issue. I had little white bumps under my eyes, not visibly but under the skin. I had maybe 6 on one eye and 4 on the other. I used the 2% liquid BHA because of sensitive skin. While I was hesitating, nothing else was working. So, i used a cotton ball and put a little under each eye, for a week, morning and night. I also spread all over my face. WELL GOSH< CANNOT BELIEVE THIS!! The little bumps are rising to the surface and as I am toning, they are coming out. I AM THRILLED. SO< my undereye area is SMOOTH< LINES DIMINISHED BIG TIME and the area looks like I got a procedure done to brighten, smooth and blend the little wrinkles. I never thought something that was going to exfoilate, would also diminish the wrinkles and actually smooth the undereye. It looks like someone, worked on my eye area to smooth it and brighten it. I used retinol in the past, BUT NOTHING HAS REACHED THIS LEVEL ...ALSO, the rest of my face looks YOUNGER. WRINKLES AROUND MOUTH barely visible./?? haha. very happy indeed. I was with my daughter who is 24 at her workplace. Her assistant looked at me, never met me and said ...to my daughter. Is this your SISTER!! ....I AM 60!! Her SISTER??? WOW, happy makes me feel great. THANK YOU PAULA> PLSE CONTINUE TO DO WHAT YOU DO BEST FOR US WOMEN>>> BLESS YOU>

I purchased again
I have been using the product for close to 2 months. At first, I used it twice a day but it seemed to irritate my skin, with peeling and flaking, and not doing what it claimed to do; so, I started using it only at nighttime after cleansing and twice a day, morning and evening, on my days off from work when I am wearing no makeup. The results are simply amazing! Proof: my skin was so congested with heavy oil in my pores (which are enlarged) that when I would use a blackhead tool on my skin little streams of heavy white stuff would literally 'jump out'; now, very little if anything comes out. I use the product on the backs and inside of my ears and they have improved dramatically as well. I am a Caucasian 60 year old woman. This is the FIRST review that I have ever written for a product. Be patient, experiment, give it time.When I reordered recently I purchased the Glycolic Acid Exfoliatant to alternate with ...will see how it works :).

This is a must have for my daily skin care routine. My skin looks smooth, pores are smaller, no more clogged pores! It's non irritating, non greasy, and easy apply. I use it every day. I have always been a daily foundation wearing kind of girl and since I started using paulas choice products I feel like my skin looks better without! Also love the retinol and AHA.
