Great product but beware - leaky bottle!
from Venice, CA
Comments about 2% BHA Liquid - 4 oz:
My skin tolerates this well but beware that the bottle is not good at all for traveling, I lost 50+% of the contents when I unpacked it after a 6 hr flight. Thought perhaps I received a defective bottle but the same thing happened with my second bottle. I wish PC would put in a leakproof bottle. So lesson learned - if you travel, put in a different (leakproof) bottle.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

It was a waste for me.
from San Carlos, CA
I have combo skin. I started using this twice daily but my skin started to look really dry and peel so I only used it at night time. It says it's supposed exfoliate your skin, unclog your pores, decrease pore size, refine skin texture, and reduce lines and wrinkles. Because my skin peeled I definitely knew the exfoliation part was working. My face would feel tight in the mornings. It didn't unclog my pores because blackheads and whiteheads were still there and I'd get new ones. No product can decrease pore size just minimize the "appearance" of your pores - so no change there. The texture of my skin didn't change. Also, I don't have many lines or wrinkles right now and nothing changed on that end. I was hoping that this would help fade some acne scars but the product made some spots a bit darker on my forehead and cheeks. I went through a whole 4 oz bottle just to "stick with it" and it hasn't done me any good. I've seen more improvement from drinking more water and eating more fresh fruits and vegetables.

This is it.
By Nearly 40
I have been using Paula's Choice for almost 6 months now. I ordered the whole RESIST advanced kit which comes with 2 different strength AHA exfoliants but does not include a BHA. I just got this product and have been using it once or twice a day now for a week and it is making a huge difference in the appearance of blackheads on my nose and on my cheeks near my nose. Loving it. The AHA glycolic acid products are great, but for blackheads I think you've got to have the BHA.Definitely recommend.
The only thing that unclogged my pores!
from Pittsburgh, PA
for the past 4 to 5 months I've been struggling with hormonal breakouts and clogged pores on my chin, around my mouth, etc. and this is the first product I've used that actually cleared my skin. Not sure if I can ever live without it! I will say, I have normal to dry skin and for me personally, I have found it to be a tiny bit drying in certain areas - though nothing compared to other acne products I tried (I'm looking at you, Neutrogena Deep clean face wash). Cutting back my use to every other day helped with this tremendously - plus I mean, it's February, and I always deal with dryer skin during the winter.Bonus - also made my pores disappear and made my skin glowy and healthy looking. And, it made my face incredibly soft. Like I couldn't stop touching it. I did have a "purging"effect the first couple days of use, where it seemed to be drawing the bad stuff to the surface - but after that it was smooth sailing.
I've really enjoyed this product
from Memphis, TN
I've used the 2% BHA liquid for a while and have really loved it. My skin is oily, has large pores, and is prone to breakouts, but this has helped that. Recently I've been thinking about switching to the Clear Exfoliating Solution since breakouts are a problem for me. I'm wondering if there is really any difference between the two products?

This product works great and delivers as promised. I prefer to just use my fingers to apply because it's expensive and wastes product on a cotton pad. My skin looks so much better since I started using this product.

Good product not perfect in my opinion
About Me Combination Skin
1. The product does do what it says, it exfoliates, I can see the difference when I use it, I'm 30 and I still break out, when using this my pores do look better and rarely any blackheads form.2. I find it on the greasy side, I wanted the liquid since I feel the gel never dries, the gel is effective too but they both have the issue of not entirely drying or taking to long to soak into the skin. I prefer the 4% foam it absorbs and dries quickly but I use it about twice a week not to abuse my skin.Is good product, I would recommend others to try it, the greasy downside is my personal opinion and I think others may be different so yes I would say try it.
This stuff is the jam!

I've been using Paula's Choice products for over a year now, and this exfoliant has been amazing at keeping my acne under control. I USED to have constant acne breakouts on my chin, but I have this no longer!After using Clinique's 3-step products for acne for over a year, my skin was covered with tiny white bumps, just under the skin. I'd pick at these and end up with full-blown pimples. After researching and realizing that the alcohol toner was the worst thing for my skin, I came across some Paula's Choice reviews. I purchased, and I haven't looked back. The bumps are gone, the chin acne is gone. I've never had such great looking skin! Customer for life!I use this product and the 1% Clinical retinol regularly, and those two products together has left me with even-toned skin, finally.
Emotional tears of relief and thankfulness!!!
from Augusta, GA
I can finally live my life! I don't have to sit at home waiting for my skin to clear up! I still use my dermatologist prescribed retinol every 3rd night but this exfoliant has cleared my pores like nothing I've ever used before. I was plagued by cystic neck acne and that is gone too. I had extremely clogged pores and rough bumpy skin on my chest that has all smoothed away. I apply with a cottonball after cleansing twice per day. I cannot thank you enough!

bad reaction to my skin
from Edison, NJ
I used this product for 6 days. it started making my skin red after 2 days so I skipped 2 days and used again for a day to see if it goes okay for me. it didn't work for me at all. my skin turned so red and dry that I can't use it. I really wanted to love it but just waste of money :-(Everyone's skin is different. it didn't workout for me. I should have ordered Super light resist sunscreen instead.
