About Me Beauty Conscious
Comments about 2% BHA Liquid - 4 oz:
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.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

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.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Redness, itchy, breakout
from Anaheim, CA
Bought the trial size, I've been using it for two weeks now and with each application my face is left red and irritated, almost like an allergic reaction. I also gained about 5 huge pimples.

About Me Beauty Expert
I bought this 2% BHA Liquid after chatting with a Paula's Choice Customer Service representative online. I have large pores and am prone to hormonal acne. this stuff is amazing. It is non-irritating, has a slight glycerin-slip feel, absorbs quickly, works so well to clean out my pores! I noticed some slight purging which lasted for about a week and a half, but nothing really awful - actually, the amount of gunk this product cleared out of my clogged pores was fascinating. Overall, my skin is much smoother and stays beautifully clear. I noticed some slight drying at the corners of my mouth where my pores are especially stubborn (so I was using it there most often) but a good moisturizer and a day off for the BHA Liquid and my skin was just fine and ready for more. Will definitely continue to purchase.

from Sacramento, CA
I ordered this a while ago, but didn't use it every day. Well, about 2 weeks ago, I started using it every day and followed the instructions on the bottle. I have always had a huge problem with clogged pores that just sit on my face. It has been 2 weeks with daily use, and I am so impressed at the effectiveness of getting rid of my clogged pores! Truly a remarkable result! I wish I had taken before and after photos. My skin looks better than ever....Very pleased!
This product changed my skin care for the better
from Delray Beach, FL
This product changed my life for the better. I use it on a daily basis. Makes my skin so smooth, hydrating and erased my break outs. My skin looks very healthy and radiant in a non-oily way.

Caused a large red rough dry spot on my face!
I have tried this and the gel salicylic acid exfoliant. I only used it at night. Both caused a red dry rough red to develop on my face. The first time it reached the size of a quarter before I realized what was causing it. It was slightly raised above the skin so I thought it was a zit at first and kept using the product. The next time I tried it I knew right away and stopped using it. It took over a week for the spot to go away the first time. I have never had this happen before with a salicylic acid product. I am trying the 1% lotion thinking that 2% is too strong for my skin. I will write a review for the 1% lotion in a few weeks.

Great Product, Small size
from Toronto, Canada
Just to clarify, this is a review for the product itself, but also for the TRIAL SIZE product.I've been using the BHA Liquid for about a week, and I literally think it saved my skin. I saw a amor improvement in my skin THE NEXT DAY, and I've had only one or two small pimples pop up since using it. My skin, while not yet perfect, is the best it's been since before I started getting acne at age 14. I'm 21 now. I have dry skin, so I probably SHOULD be using the BHA lotion, but I like the liquid because I can see the gunk that gets out of my pores on the cotton pad. It does make my skin a bit dry/flaky, but it's worth it.I will say that although the product claims to help with redness, I find it actually makes me a bit red. I use it twice a day, so maybe that's why, but I'm too scared to only use it once a day because this is the first product where I've actually seen a huge improvement in my skin and I don't want my acne to come back!My only other complaint about the product - I purchased the trial size to try out for a bit before I purchased the full size product - is that it's too small. What I mean is, the people purchasing the trial size are probably people that haven't tried this product yet, like myself. By the time I used the product long enough to know I wanted to purchase the full size, it was almost done. My order is currently on it's way, and I don't think I will have enough product in the trial size to last me until it gets here :( .Still, great product. Only wish I tried it sooner.
Dont use it for oily/acne prone skin!
from Panama City, PANAMA
I bought a trial size just to try it as it says it is suitable for "all skin types". It turned out to be a really bad idea. Do not try it if you have combination/oily skin. It felt so heavy and greasy that when it spilled inside my travel bag I had to use soap to wash it away (yes, the package was leaking, I ended up putting it inside a plastic bag). I was lucky I had a long work trip to a very dry place so after a few days my skin got drier and I used the product. My review does not apply to people with dry skin tough (thus my 3 stars, not 1)!!!
I love this!
from Las Vegas, NV
I've had it for three months now. But I recently have used it consistently for the past two-three weeks and it's almost a miracle. I have enlarged pores on my nose and my cheeks. When I use this product consistently, it really showed results within a week or two! I'm really surprised how much this has made a difference on my skin. I normally use it at night with the niacinamide. Definitely recommend.
