Hands down - my favorite Paula's Choice product
from Seattle, WA
About Me Minimalist
Comments about 2% BHA Liquid - 4 oz:
I have used many of Paula's products over many years - this one is my absolute favorite. I have mostly dry skin, but blemish prone. As long as I use this every night, I don't break out. This is the one I can't do without.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

About Me Beauty Conscious
Disappointment. This product left my skin greasy in some areas and made my acne marks more noticeable. I used it together with the 25% vitamin C spot corrector. After two weeks my acne spots were burnt leading to more dark spots. The skin around where I used the spot corrector became dry rough and flaky. Overall parts of my skin was greasy, the dark spots more highlighted and the area around the spots dry leading to a uneven skin tone. My skin looked better before using this product. Now I have to correct the dark spots but also the damage from using these products. Any help!!!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

from Nogales, Mexico
I live in Mexico near the border with the US and after spending a lot of money in " expensive brand products" and not getting the results I wanted , I started to look for more affordable products and I have never heard about paula's choice before non any of my friends or co-workers I don't know why this line don't receive the credit it desserves. I bought the sample sizes first and felt in love with the combination skin line! This exfoliant leaves my face feeling so smooth and finally I found something that works for my skin I have tried a lot of other stuff and nothing works like this for me. Thank you Paulas choice for taught me that I don't need to spend a huge amount of money to get a beautiful skin!
My favorite Paula's ingredient ever that works!!
I originally got a promo sample (with purchase) of this product back in June. My skin has never been better and I have purchased the full size product (end of July) and use it daily - here we are mid September and the bottle is still pretty full. I am nearly 39 and still get an occasional break-out - especially with my cycle. This product has practically eliminated all break-outs. If something is coming on, it zaps it and heals it within 24-36 hours. Any and all black heads shrink up by the end of the day (or over night b/c that is when I typically use it followed by a nighttime moisturizer). I actually stopped using my acne RX and solely use this product. I can still hardly believe I finally found something that truly works for me. The redness around my nose is gone now too. Amazing! So happy!

Dry, red, broken out skin
from Ontario, Canada
I am so disappointed with this product. I tried it for two months, and my skin went from decent but oily to red, dry, completely broken out and irritated constantly. I attributed my bad skin to life events, stress, etc. and kept diligently using my BHA, assuming it would help with my skin issues. Lo and behold, as soon as I stopped using it my skin started to clear up immediately, although I still have irritation and marks as a result of how badly it broke me out. It really messed up my skin and I'm so disappointed as it seems to work so well for others. And because I stuck with it for so long, I don't qualify for a refund anymore. Unimpressed overall.
from Alberta, Canada
I use this product twice daily and it has made a world of difference in my skin. Before I started using this, my skin was so congested and bumpy. With consistent use, my pores are smaller, that congestion is gone, and my skin tone appears more even. I find that this acts as a great primer for the All Bases Covered foundation (also awesome).
Effective but drying
By Lisa the Pale
from San Antonio, TX
Bought a small container of this when both the Resist 2% AHA lotion and the Skin Perfecting 1% BHA lotions were out of stock and/or discontinued. It exfoliates and clears pores very well, but it leaves my skin tight and flaky. My skin tolerates it well when I use it only twice a month and as a spot pimple treatment; it clears up the blemish over night. The instructions recommend applying it with a cotton ball, but I think that, though easier, wastes product. Instead, I squeeze out one drop at a time on my finger and smooth it across my face. Usually 2-3 drops will cover my whole face and part of my neck.
the perfect exfoliants
from Earth, many climates
My skin type: very pale, oily, acne prone skin with persistent red spots due to acne and irritation. I have used several exfoliants in the past including PC BHA gel formula and RESIST pore refining BHA treatment. Both the former exfoliants left a tacky film on my skin which caused even more oil on my skin. This formula does not, it instantly absorbs work wonders and reduces my oil output while reducing my enlarged pores beside my nose.

from Columbia, MD
I first discovered Paula's Choice back in 2009 from her books The Beauty Bible and Don't go to the Cosmetics Counter without me. I tried her skincare line back then are really enjoyed it, but due to circumstances didn't continue when the bottles emptied. Now I'm back and VERY disappointed with this product now. It leaves a heavy, greasy film on my face that doesn't seem to dry (which it did not do 7 years ago) and it takes forever to get through my skin care routine because I like to allow each item to absorb into the skin before moving on. I usually wind up washing my face a 2nd time to get this greasy film off. Yuck. Very disappointed.
