Keeps my seborrheic dermatitis at bay!
Comments about 2% BHA Liquid - 4 oz:
Got this product as a sample and figured, "How can you see enough results after one or two uses to know whether you want to buy it?" But when I used it, the first thing I noticed was how nice it immediately made my skin look under makeup, like a primer -- smooth and glowing (but without making the makeup melt off my face).Then, after no more than three uses, I realized that the chronic flakiness between my eyebrows was gone! I have seborrheic dermatitis, which, if you don't know, is a fungal skin issue caused by excess oil -- basically the facial equivalent of dandruff. While the result of this condition is what *looks* like dry skin (flakiness), the root cause is exactly the opposite. I had a bad flareup recently that turned the skin on my nose raw and bloody, but I always have a little bit of milder flakiness between my brows. I wasn't expecting this to do anything, so I was caught off-guard when I noticed the flakes were finally gone! When you're not expecting to see results, but do, that's when you know it's not just your head playing tricks on you. Now, I can't say whether this would help with a bad flareup like the one on my nose, but it does seem like it would help prevent those by keeping the chronic type of seb derm under control before the yeast can proliferate.It does go on a little sticky, but dries normally. It also seems to make my chronic nose blackheads less noticeable. I'll probably never be fully rid of them (it's a family trait to have blackheads even into old age!), but this makes them a lot less noticeable and easier to fully cover. I also have sensitive skin, and so far this doesn't bother it (even when using twice a day). So encouraged by this product! I thought having chronic flakiness and the occasional flareup was just something I'd have to get over. It's too early to say whether it fights aging (I'm in my 20s, so don't need major help with that yet, anyway). But, as far as I'm concerned, that would just be icing on the cake!
Service and delivery comments:
This arrived extremely quickly -- I think I ordered it on Thursday and got it on Saturday, without selecting a rush-delivery option.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

i love this!!!
from New York
I use this product every night as part of my routine it's so lightweight and I really see the difference in my skin after using it! I see that a lot of people say it's greasy I definitely don't think they're using this product properly. The first time I tried it I overused the product and my skin felt so gross and oily, but I decided to try again the next night, using 3 drops and it was more than enough! Then I let it sink in for a few minutes before continuing with my routine.

Like buying two different products
By Le Nuit
About Me combination skin, enlarged pores
I originally bought the sample size of this product due to all the hype surrounding it, but found the near-$50 CAD price tag too much for the full product. The first time I applied it, I felt the immediately felt the "tingling" that tends to mean it's effecting the skin. After finishing the sample I purchased the travel size, and was left disappointed as soon as I used it. It's feels closer to an oil than a liquid exfoliant, which seems counter-intuitive for a bha, the texture is much different from the sample, leaving an almost greasy residue that never really gets absorbed by my skin. I originally used the sample size of the bha on my forehead, cheeks, and nose, but I no longer use it on my forehead because it leaves my forehead feeling greasy which is the OPPOSITE OF WHAT A BHA SHOULD DO. I've been using it every other day for over a month now, and I have seen no results. My pores, uneven skin tone, and redness have remained the same. I have hope that the full size product contains the same consistency as the sample size rather than the travel size, but at this point I can't see myself purchasing it any time soon.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I never be without this
from Denver, CO
I press 3 drops of this into my face after toning. If I use more, the liquid has sort of a greasy feeling when I spread it around. I prefer using my palms over a cotton round bc then all the products goes onto my skin. Recently, my skin got extremely sensitized from a product and I went without exfoliants for a couple weeks; I noticed more breakouts and blackheads after not using BHA for a week.

One of two skin care products I CANNOT do without!
By Just My Truth
from San Francisco, CA
I have a ridiculous relationship with my skin. I have acne scars, breakouts, large pores, uneven skin tone, and thanks to growing up on the beach without sunscreen, now wrinkles. I have tried and tested so many different products and combinations over the years, and I can honestly say that since I purchased this when it first came out around a year ago, I have made sure I never run out. This controls my acne, shrinks my pores, and the wrinkles have completely smoothed out. It also doesn't irritate my skin, oh yea I forgot to mention, I also have extremely sensitive skin. I use cetaphil to wash my face, and I don't even need a toner with this product. I ran out while I was in France for 2 months, and after four days my skin broke out and looked uneven. I filled the 3/4 empty bottle with water, and it was enough to stabilize my skin, further proving how amazing this product is. Along with my Vitamin C serum I use, I cannot go without this product.

from Chicago, IL
I use this after cleansing my face, before my serum and moisturizer. You don't need much, as it spreads easily given its oily-ish consistency. Unlike many reviews I read, I love the texture and feel of it. If you don't use a lot, and give the product a few minutes to dry down, it's easy to put products on afterward. It doesn't dry me out, but my pores have been clearer and smaller than ever before! New HG product.
I would buy this product again
I only use the product where I have post acne marks (my chin). The first week that I started the product my chin became to breakout horribly. I had painful cyst on my chin for a couple of days. 3 weeks after I started using this product, I realized that my red marks was paler than before! I am now pimple free on my chin and my acne scars are slowly dissapearing! I am very happy of the results and I would buy it again and again, very impress!

My number 1 can't-live-without product
from Los Angeles, CA
After a life of oily, acne-prone skin, this is literally the only product I've used that takes care of both issues. I am almost entirely breakout-free, and no longer have a greasy-feeling face all day. I recommend it to anyone with the same skin type. Combined with my Clarisonic, at 40, my skin has never looked better.

Good for skincare starters
Not sure what it actually does for my skin. It's greasy and it's hard to put other products on top of it. There are better products out there for more targeted skincare problems. It sometimes left my skin stinging a bit, but not a harsh kind of sting.

A must have!!!
from Montréal, Québec, Canada
I have a combination sensitive skin with rosacea and breakouts. It's very complicated to find great skin care products because usually products that are good for my breakouts are bad for my sensitive skin. However, this product completely changed the overall appearance of my skin without irritating it by using it every other day. I will no longer live without this 2% liquid BHA :) You really have to try this don't hesitate! My skin is more soft and smooth thanks to it. Also, my breakouts are now located only on my chin no longer elsewhere on my face and I tend to think that it's thanks to this product. I use it every other day because I feel that if I use it every day it can make my skin a little more red.
Amazing! Paula's choice customer service is the BEST! There are always very helpful, patient, knowledgeable, service-minded and professional. I'm very curious and I love to know everything before buying so I asks A LOT of questions. They always seem happy and not bothered to answer all of my questions/worries. Thank you all at Paula's Choice, you are GREAT!
