smells like nail polish remover
from St Paul, MN
Comments about 2% BHA Lotion - 3.3 oz:
The smell is so awful; seriously smells like acetone nail polish remover. It's hard to use it bc of it. May just throw away as I am not sure it is making a difference anyway. I think fragrance-free is a mislabel and PC should label as 'no fragrance added'. To summarize: the smell is awful.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

New formula is a major disappointment
I am a devoted PC user, and used the old formulation daily. The new formula is unpleasant and mucoid in texture. Also smells more like chemicals. It is not as comforting to the skin, because you have taken out squalane, an excellent natural emollient and texturizer, and bisabolol, which calms the skin. Added is butylene glycol, a ?(cheaper) ingredient, synthetic petroleum product. If I wanted this, I would buy stuff at the drug store. Please return to the old formulation!

Old Formula Better
from Fort Worth, TX
The old formula was perfection - repeat buy, holy grail status, and the product that kept me coming back to PC. I actually thought the new formula was a curdled, bad batch of the product. So bummed to realize this is intentional. Such a foolish mistake on the part of Paula's Choice! Dryer skins had no problem with the absorption of the old formula, and you already had a liquid version for oil skins, so I do not understand the logic. If you bring back the old version, I'd happily return. As it stands with the new one - you've lost my interest in your brand as a whole.

Still need this, but OLD FORMULA much better for dry skin
from Westlake Village, CA
Paula's Choice products has really changed my skin. As several users have noted, the new formula is much more drying and I feel not as effective because it leaves me more flaky while leading to more breakouts. I continue to use it both at night and in the day, alternating with 10% AHA, and redness is still much improved.The OLD FORMULA was PERFECT for my sensitive, normal to dry skin, and truly cleared up a lot of problems.
Not too drying
I'm prone to acne, so I really can't go without a BHA. Plus, my skin gets very irritated by AHAs, so if I want any exfoliation at all, BHAs are my only option. The issue is that they usually dry out my skin and make my face feel stiff. However, this product doesn't do that, and it still gives me all the benefits of a BHA and keeps my skin smooth and my pores unclogged.

I love the texture of the new formula
from Hillsboro, OR
About Me Great Skin
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.

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!
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.
