So glad I tried it

About Me Beauty Conscious
Comments about 2% BHA Lotion - 3.3 oz:
I would consider myself to have oily/combo skin. In the winter I experience more sensitive skin than usual. I had been using the liquid version of this product and just kept experiencing itchy, dry, very irritated skin. Even in the summer at times but especially in winter. I tried various moisturizers and varied frequency of using the liquid to see if that would help. So I finally realized this product existed and decided to give it a try, thinking the lotion consistency wouldn't really work for me. I was so wrong. I like this way better than the liquid! I actually feel likes this is soothing to my skin. My skin still has had some sensitive moments this winter but nothing like it was before I tried this. I am excited to see how it works for me in the summer as well. I even enjoy applying it more than the liquid. I will just put it on as a lotion and then rub it into my hands plus my arms (chicken bumbs) and it is like a cure all for me. I guess gettin a cotton pad was too much work for me. Haha. I know some of the other customers said they didn't feel it worked for their oily skin but it's been fabulous for mine.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Wish it was lighter
About Me Minimalist
I got the 1%BHA lotion and absolutely loved it, but wanted a stronger exfoliant. Unfortunately, the 2%BHA is heavier, and balled up into clumps when I used my sunscreen over it. Is there any way you can make the 2% as light and moisturizing as the 1%? Because then it'd be perfect
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Really wanted to love this
from New York City
I really wanted to love this. I love how Paula is conscious of every ingredient she puts into her products, however this did not work with my skin. I've used BHA before and it has really agreed with my skin. I am prone to breakouts. However, when I put this on it went on very tacky and almost chalky. It also made me breakout noticeably more than when I wasn't using. Still dealing with the aftermath. I concentrated on just my chin area and soon I had 5 new pimples. It's almost as if it clogged my pores vs. cleared them. I tried to stick with for two weeks, but had to give up.

BHA - Not just for people with acne and oily skin!
For a long time I used PC AHA exfoliant and it worked well, but I thought I'd try the BHA just to see if anything would be different. The BHA products seem to be mostly targeted to people who have acne and oily skin and I don't have that so I hadn't tried it. I have dry skin but I do have largish pores on my forehead, nose, and chin, so I got some samples of the BHA 2% lotion. It was great and made my skin dramatically smoother after one or two uses. So I got a full size of it and also got the BHA 9%. I'm extremely happy with the outcome and will continue to use both products. I use the 9% occasionally on all the pore areas and it's working great. My pores have greatly decreased in size all over my face and neither product irritates my skin at all. Also, I had a weird little growth thing under my eye that might have been a wart or something and it had gotten larger recently. That thing has shrunk away to almost nothing since I've been using the BHA so I'm very very happy with these results! (It may have been the 9% that worked that magic.) If you've tried the BHA 2% products and not seen the results you want, I would highly recommend trying the 9%! It's pretty greasy, so it's for nighttime use only. Anyway this BHA is awesome stuff! I highly recommend!

Excellent Exfoliant for Dry, Reddishness-Prone Skin
By Maria B.
from Central Coast, CA
When the skin in the center of my face turned red and peeled as soon as I had to start using forced air heating this fall, I knew I had to change my Paula's Choice products. (I wouldn't use any other brand.) I was running out of my Resist exfoliant, so I thought I'd try Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Lotion because it's specifically for dry skin and BHA is helpful with redness. I have been very pleased with the results. I have been using it for a month twice a day. I think, "That's twice the expense of once a day," but my skin really looks smooth, so the investment is worth it. I switched to two other PC products at the same time and have been very pleased with how the combination has worked out. These other products are Skin Recovery Hydrating Treatment Mask and Skin Recovery Daily Moisturizing Lotion.
Good for dry combo Rosacea skin
By Catgirl 3
from Colorado Springs Co
I use this product to help with my large pores, uneven skin tone and Rosacea skin. I think it absorbs quickly. I mostly use it at night, however I have used it twice a day and it does not dry out the skin. There is no greasy heavy feel. If I am faithful in using it I see results. Smaller pores, clearer skin, more even tone.

Product great; package not so much
from Durham, NC
This product is great. Even when I fall out of routine and begin to experience skin problems, I notice a difference after just one use. The one con I've come across is that with at least a quarter of the bottle left, the pump has stopped working. Now it's a real pain to use.
Customer Service Response: Hello, and thanks for your feedback! Definitely contact a member of our Customer Care team, who can help replace your bottle!
While this hasn't harmed my skin at all-- it is not dryin--it has had a negligible effect on my clogged pores. I have many whiteheads and bumps around my chin and this has done nothing to minimize them. It's basically as though I'm putting moisturizer on. Maybe this would work for those who have clearer skin at the outset, but it has not worked for me. I have been using it for about a month or so, twice a day.
a buy that is worth a try
By grandmaw tripod
as a longtime rosacea sufferer that had no breakouts, suddenly I was a total bump mess. after 6 months of struggle i started metrogel once a day. I read everything I could find on rosacea and asked pc for advice. am pleased to say that I am now blemish free. I still use metrogel in a.m. followed by cerave p.m. moisturizer and pc foundation mixed together, but use bha 2% lotion after cleaning at night. thank you paula for your excellent products and help.
The best skin lotion for me and my sister
I have been using this lotion daily at night for about a year and a half now. It makes skin smooth and glowing. Definitely one of the best products Paula has formulated. Thank you really.The things that are great about this product: it has a nice rich texture, it is not greasy, fragrance free and it does not contain silicones. The price is okay as well.
