Will the previous formula return?
from Vancouver, BC
Comments about 2% BHA Lotion - 3.3 oz:
I was about to order this based on samples I have used and realized my samples must have been the previous formula as I've had them for quite some time. Based on others' dissatisfaction, I will not order until customer's comments are positive, once again. The lotion sample I had was very nice, certainly not a gel.

Don't bother to buy this product
I don't know what they have changed in their formula, but this lotion does not work at all. I have been using the 2% BHA lotion (the old package) which was very effective, but this new one did not work for me. I have been using it for about 2 months and did not notice any change, no skin feeling at all!!!!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Surprise alternative use! (TMI alert)
from Austin, TX
About Me 44 yrs old - dry, sensitive, acne prone skin
I ordered this because I thought it might be better for my dry skin than the "liquid" version, and be easier to handle as well. Alas, the lotion caused a breakout on my chin within a day or two of starting to use it so I tried the Clear line and that worked better for me. HOWEVER, I discovered sort of by chance that this lotion version works wonders as an after-shave treatment for my bikini area (legs and lower stomach only, ladies). I always, always have the red bumps and irritation after shaving no matter what kind of convoluted precautions I take beforehand or what products I use to try to alleviate it after. But this stuff worked like magic even though it was diluted with Aveeno body lotion. I had just applied the BHA lotion to my face and then went directly to applying Aveeno to my legs after a shower. Later on I was surprised to notice how clear that area was and realized the only difference was the BHA lotion. Of course, I had to experiment... using just the BHA and no Aveeno, using the Clear liquid, mixing the Clear liquid with the Aveeno, etc. Just the BHA lotion first, then a layer of Aveeno later on is the charm. Had to share that in case there are any other frustrated swimmers out there with super sensitive skin in that area. I will definitely be keeping a bottle of this on hand in the summer months.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Gentle yet effective!
from Hudson Valley, NY
I have somewhat sensitive combination skin that is influenced by a thyroid condition. When I was younger, I would irritate my skin to destroy my acne and oil troubles... I finally learned that actual face scrubs and harsh toners were only making things worse. Then I found BHA Exfoliant lotion! I started with 1% but moved up to 2%. This keeps my T-zone in check and clears my blackheads (mainly around my nose). It reduces my breakouts, but also gives me a little moisture. It does not smell great but I don't care because it is fragrance free (hard to come by), and the odor fades quickly. I want skin care not perfume for my face. My skin feels smoother and it's clearer! Please don't change or discontinue this lotion!!
Service and delivery comments:
Delivery and service are always excellent. I highly recommend Paula's Choice!
My favorite daily Bha
This is my favorite exfoliation product for daily use. It is a very light and silky lotion texture that goes on beautifully. It isn't sticky and won't pill. It is the perfect first step after cleansing and toning for me. It works great just like all the other Bha formulas. I like the lotion because it soaks in fast and then on to my serum and moisturizer. I have more normal or combination skin. I use this formula on my neck and chest as well and it works great.
Perfect packaging and delivery every time

BRING BACK THE OLD FORMULA PLEASE!!!
I'm pretty disappointed with this new formula although I will give it a chance and hoping it will perform even close to the old version...I am not at all happy with the new "gel" texture it's no longer a lotion, it also feels much more irritating to my skin. I miss the old creamy lotion version this one feels quite drying and leaves a tacky finish which does not absorb immediately the way the old one did (I was able to apply makeup immediately after application it absorbed instantly) this formula is sticky and sits on top of the skin for far too long. It reminds me of the liquid and gel versions which I sampled once and I was not interested! SO DISAPPOINTED!!! WHY they had to change a perfect formula for my sensitive combination skin, dry surface, enlarged pores I don't know. The old version was the PERFECT solution and I used it twice daily...this one will be more of a night time treatment as I find it a bit too irritating for under makeup NOT GOOD! Just perplexed by this change, loved the old formula, many of us are moaning about it I HOPE PAULA'S CHOICE LISTENS AND BRINGS IT BACK!!!!
VERY FAST DELIVERY
Re: My not so favorable review
from Oklahoma City, OK
I recently gave a negative review for this product. I decided to keep using it to see if it might work for me after all. Although I still like the old creamier formula better, this new formula has been working for me. It came down to me using a very moisturizing cleanser (not PC's) with the new formula. Skin is still a bit tight after first putting it on, but the tightness soon goes away. Tiny bumps are going away and my skin seems brighter and looks healthier. It's only been a short time so time will tell, but it looks like this might just work for me after all.

Newer version is better!
I really like this new version of this defoliant as the old one was horrible! It does what it suppose to do! SKIN PERFECTING 2% BHA Lotion Exfoliant has a light lotion texture that softens and hydrates skin as it gently and naturally exfoliates dead skin. Thanks!

Hate the new formula
from New Jersey
I used this product for years and used to love it ! They changed the formula.... and it's so over drying and irritates skin. Please bring back the old version.
Just as good as th Bha-1 lotion
from Orange, Ca
So I thought that I wasn't gonna like it because it's stronger and my skin is pretty sensitive, my skin is reactive and acne prone so I really have to be careful but luckily this does work well enough I'm so glad I purchased this now I have a good daily exfoliater. Thank you Paula for making gentle products . Oh and please bring back the resist SPF 25 moisturizer for dry to dry skin please do not just continue that and also bring back the barely there as those are my two staple products in my routine .
Delivery time is always great
