Dry, red, broken out skin
from Ontario, Canada
About Me Beauty Conscious
Comments about 2% BHA Liquid - 4 oz:
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.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

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).
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

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.

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.

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.
