terrible terrible packaging for a great product
Comments about 2% BHA Liquid - 4 oz:
product gets 5 stars, packaging gets zero. i love Paula products but (packaging) this sucks. you can't control how much comes out or where. really poor packaging. the older bottles were much better, squeezable and you could aim the fallout. these new ones, awful. packaging REALLY EEDS IMPROVEMENT. product is too expensive to have waste
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Add me to the VERY long list of people who are obsessed with this product.I was really hesitant to try this. In my early 20s I got hives from hairline to sternum after trying Proactiv and ever since then I've basically run screaming from anything claiming to be "skin clearing". Fast forward 10 years, my skin was ok but I started to toy with the idea of some anti-aging products. I got talked into trying R&F, which gave me the worst acne of my life. At this point, feeling a bit desperate, I hid in the house and spent hours scouring the internet to find the best options for my face. Enter Paula's Choice. Having fallen totally in love with this brand and everything it represents, I was well on my way to the skin I wanted but still struggling with clogged pores and redness. Emboldened by a deep dive into user reviews and social media hashtags, I finally got brave enough to order the travel size bottle. It was, quite literally, an overnight success. My face was lighter, brighter, smoother, and comfortable!Yes, the texture is unique. I'm perfectly happy to hop into bed like a greased pig. If you're not, I get it and this might not be your go-to. Only put this stuff where you need it. Moisturize well if you tend to get dry. But at least give it a shot.
Service and delivery comments:
The customer service is what convinced me to go with PC in the first place. Continues to blow everyone else out of the water.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

almost ruined my skin
A few months before my sister's wedding I started adhering to a diligent skincare routine to make sure I was all smooth and glowing on the day. This product sounded like something I should use based on the predominantly positive reviews. I didn't look at the negative ones at the time of purchase, but just like a lot of other people reported breaking out in places they never have before, I got this huge zit on my neck which I initially thought was a boil (in retrospect I am guessing it was a cystic pimple, I just don't have prior experience with cystic acne). This product also caused weird bumps / skin growths on my face. So a month before the wedding I ended up with problems on my skin that I didn't have previously!Thankfully I was able to get rid of the bumps, and the red spot from that enormous zit could be easily covered up (I am guessing it would take a few more months to completely even out), and needless to say I returned this exfoliant, but with "skincare" results like these I think I'll stay away from Paula's Choice products for a while.

You CAN use this product even if you have sensitive skin
from Denver, CO
I live in Colorado, which is very dry in the winter, and I have sensitive break-out prone skin and I have been able to use this product without issues. I started by applying it only every other or every two nights and slowly increased how frequently I used it after using it two nights in a row caused some excess dryness and some slight burning. This is an excellent product! I got a free sample which is why I began using it. I probably would have tried the lotion or gel first instead since the liquid of any BHA/AHA will always absorb the fastest and I know my skin pretty well (it likes to freak out when trying new products so slower absorbing is better), but the liquid has been just fine when used in moderation and added slowly to my skin regimen. My skin clarity is lovely and the post-acne marks are fading more quickly than usual. Love it!
Although I don't like the oily feel, still the best BHA
This is still the best BHA to come out of Paula's line. I have used the Resist BHA and Clear and I find those don't do much for my blackheads or skin texture. The only issue I have is I find I get itchy around my jaw line for a bit after I put it on but I don't get any redness or allergic reactions. Perhaps it's just my skin reacting? Either way I do love this one and I use it at night to avoid having a greasy face during the day. For daytime I use Resist or the Clear BHAs.

I completely changed my mind on this - its really fantastic.
from rishon lezion - israel
i wrote a neg (1 star) review on this a few months ago and not because i felt it didnt work (like i have stated in that review) but simply because it made my face a red flaking drying breakout mess! i am a 48 y\o mother of 4 who use STRONG skincare on a daily bases.i use lots of high percentage peels (on weekly bases) plus i do my own pro streignth TCA peel ever few months.i use vit c, 5% hydroquinon,retin a GEL 0.05 (which is harsher on the skin then the cream anyway),plus i use a 15% alpha hydroxy acid serum (in a ph of 3.1) so my skin is used to high percentage and strong ingredients.so when this little monster made my skin red,flacky,dry AND made me break out so so bad ( i normally have great skin with almost no breakouts) i was shocked!and besides i HATED the sticky residue it left on my skin!i simply could not handle it.anyway, i decided to start incorporating this into my night time regiman but start with applying it every other day.and thats what i did (and five minutes after adding my hydroqunion.retin a gel.and moisturizer on top).i also noticed that if i use a cotton round (a thin cotton round pad) instead of a cotton ball and use less amount of product i am left with a very very thin film that is alot less sticky then before and it dries after about 5 min and that way i can use all the other things above it.i knoe use it every night, and my skin GLOWS!!!my poors are tight! my skin is clear and BRIGHTER.my face is smooth as a baby and it really really glows.it didnt do that much with blackheads on my nose though (but i use an extractor device and a facial steamer for that).anyway, i am so happy i gave this another shoot.you will LOVE this product.just use a thin cotton pad and dont use to much (about 6-7 drops is enough).ans swip the pad all over the face for about 30 seconds.wait a 3-5 minutes to dry down a bit and add anything else you use on top.and in the moening i have a glowing smooth skin of a baby, i kid you not!sarai,israel.

I have been using this product for almost 10 years and hope they never discontinue, it definitely helps keep my skin clear! I have combination, sensitive skin and this has never been irritating or caused breakouts. I use twice a day and it's enough moisture for me in the mornings to skip a moisturizer (I let soak in for about 10-15 minutes before applying makeup). My only complaint is the price, it has increased steadily over the years, I have to wait for a sale before repurchasing.
I will likely buy this forever.
I've been using this product for over a month now. I cannot say yet if this is the reason why my skin is better, I added a couple different PC products a month ago into my skin routine, but I don't really want to find out and live without it.I use this religiously both morning and night. My biggest skin concern is not "acne" per say, but CLOGGED PORES. Clogged pores are the death of me. Skin-colored bumps. I have struggled with these stubborn things for years. I think this is really helping. Its a slow process, it doesn't happen overnight, but chemical exfoliation is something I had never heard of until I stumbled across this, and I think it's key for someone like me. My skin looks so much better than it did a month ago. I think BHA is something that really agrees with me, I have absolutely no side affects, my skin can take it and loves it. Will continue to purchase until all my clogged pores are gone, and after to keep my skin nice for years to come!

To irritating for my dry skin
from Orange, Ca
I have sensitive acne prone reactive skin and this did not work well for me unfortunately but I did like the fact that it did lighten and brighten my skin too bad I can't use it but I did find a 2% lotion that is working for me so thank goodness for that .
Always on time no problems
