I love the texture of the new formula

About Me Great Skin
Comments about 2% BHA Lotion - 3.3 oz:
I have used this product (lotion and liquid form) for several years and have always been happy with the results. I LOVE the new lotion formula, it goes on so much better and absorbs into my skin easier. I used to switch between the lotion and liquid depending on the time of year, but I think I'll use the new lotion formula all year long now.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

New Formula not good
from San Diego
I don't like the new formula :( my skin feels so dry. The old formulation was so good for my skin. Please bring the old Formulation back!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Great lightly moisturizing BHA for my oily skin.
A few months ago I decided to give this product a try when I noticed that the 2% BHA liquid and gel were causing my skin to become flaky. My skin is super oily and this lotion has just the right amount of hydration for me and it has made my pores much smaller. I can only use it at night because it makes me too greasy for day time use. I never tried the old formula so I cant compare the two but in my opinion this new one rocks.
Don't like the new formula :(
from San Francisco
I used the old formulations for years and was extremely satisfied. However, the new formulation is a disaster for my skin. My skin is very dry and does not look as nice as with the old formulation. I am very disappointed and will probably have to look for an alternative at another brand.
New Formula Less Effective

My skin breaks out bad every month. This stuff was my secret weapon. I recently ordered more and noticed a big different in the formula. It does not work nearly as well as it used to. Please bring back the old stuff! My skin begs you!

I was very concerned about the new formula, especially after seeing so many negative reviews. I have extremely oily skin, acne-prone for 30 years but am getting more and more easily irritated by acne products. I had liked the 1% but had bad luck with the 2% liquids and the Redness Solutions 1%.I need not have worried! It's not irritating and is working better than the 1% on finally really starting to clear up those stubborn "seedlings" on my upper cheeks. I've been using Paula's Choice for about six months now and my skin looks better than it has since my age was single digits. Still getting the routine down, but the current one isGlycolic acid cleanser 2x dayDay - 2 % BHA lotion and non PC moisturizerNight - 2% BHA lotion, Resist 5% AHA, moisturizer1-2 x week swapped out for 8% AHA gel, probably will order Resist 10% AHA at the end of this bottle

Update on new BHA formula
By Skin Care Junkie
from Palm Coast, Fl
I wrote a review almost two months ago, just want to update. At the advice of a customer service representative, who was great, I tried mixing the bha lotion in my moisturizer; which I have been doing once a day for these past two months. I simply cannot use it and have had to stop. This new formula would most likely be excellent for an oily skin but for dry skin, its not good. My skin was looking great and has taken a huge step backward. The old formula was perfect for me in every way and had really transformed my skin more than any product I've ever used. I really hope you will considered bringing it back in addition to this new one for those of us who really need it. Thanks!
Service and delivery comments:
Customer service and delivery is always awesome!!
Effective without overdrying
from Las Vegas
My skin is combination and sensitive, and the liquid formula was too harsh, though the 1% lotion formula was not effective. This seems like a perfect medium if you are prone to both breakouts and dry skin.
So disappointed formula changed
from Vancouver Island, BC
I used to LOVE this product, and was going to re-order it again but the formula has changed to include dimethicone. I can't use products with this in it and had previously searched Paula's Choice for a BHA without it. I guess I'll have to look elsewhere again.
Not wild about the new formula
from New England
While I appreciate the lighter lotion, my skin reacted horribly to the new formula. I broke out almost instantly, and while the older formula was thicker, I actually found that it absorbed better & left a more matte finish. I'm not sure what specifically changed, but I absolutely can't use it now, & I'm sorry, because the original BHA was my go-to lotion.
