Comments about 2% BHA Lotion - 3.3 oz:
Since hitting my mid-40's I have noticed that my skin is getting progressively drier. I was a total 2% BHA liquid devotee but found that my face would becoming tight and uncomfortable after using in the AM after cleansing & toning. Since I have switched over to this my skin has never been better! Perfect for those of us out there who were oily in their youth but are becoming drier as they age but are still concerned with pore size and occasional breakouts...makes my skin so smooth and glowy! Please never stop making this...
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

About Me Minimalist
I am in my 30's, and take pretty good care of my skin. I have been wearing sunscreen everyday of my life (everyday) since 18. Recently I noticed that my skin has started to lose some luster and glow. I got this as a deluxe sample from a department store. THIS..IS...AH-MAZING. This product has made a huge difference in my skin and I have my glow back. I've ordered two full sized bottles from Paula's Choice and cannot wait to use this again. I've been using this with the Resist C15 Booster. By itself the C15 booster has also made a difference, but adding this lotion has put my skin over the top. Love this product, and the deluxe sample if you receive one lasts about 2 weeks. FYI: I've been using this at night after I wash my face, and before any serums or moisturizers.

Perfect for my dry cheeks
from Boston, MA
About Me Beauty Conscious
Don't you hate it when you have combination skin?? My T-zone doesn't like the hot summer days, so I use the BHA liquid; and my sensitive dry cheeks don't like the brutal winter in New England, that's when I use the BHA lotion. It keeps my cheeks from feeling dry and tight. The pores on my cheeks are smaller, but I still have black heads and bigger pores on my nose and chin. My goal is slow down the aging process rather than looking for magic. And I believe in scientific researches and the PC team, so I will continue to use it. Those long lasting matte foundation is not usually my goto choice, except for special events or if I have a dinner party to go to after work. It does last but it is also quite drying. The BHA lotion does not make my face feel as tight/dry vs if I use the BHA liquid. I really do feel the difference.The BHA lotion is a light weight lotion format, meaning it has a thicker texture than any serum products. And serum generally goes after the exfoliant. When I first started using it, I felt weird by putting thinner serum on top of this lotion. Would it be washing away the exfoliant? I just have to keep reminding myself this is the right process. :)

Have been using this for a few months now. I got a bunch of samples to try in all the PC 2% varieties, lotion, liquid, and gel. Had been using B.E.'s skin revver upper which is a 1% which I highly recommend as well. However, as I use the PC serum, I thought I would give this a shot. I love it. It is stronger than the B.E. I was using, so I only use this every other night and alternate with the 8% AHA gel. My skin looks great. My sons even started using it as well for their breakout prone skin. My 17 year old told me he likes this better than the BE lotion, and both have had a visible decline in their acne.

Go with the liquid
from Cleveland, OH
I love the 2% BHA liquid, but if I use it for too many consecutive days it dries my skin out. I decided to try this in its place since it is marketed for dry skin. This product does absolutely nothing for me.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Perfect face lotion for me
By Large Pore hater
So far, I love this lotion. I use the lotion after cleansing and using a toner, both morning and night. I have always had issues with blackheads/whiteheads/large pores on my nose, plus dry flaky skin and greasy places! This lotion really makes a difference. It makes my face feel so smooth and soft, and it moisturizes without leaving my face feeling greasy. I've also notice a difference in my pores since using the product.
Not for me
from Fayetteville, AR
I used this product daily for two weeks, and found myself really regretting that I didn't keep the receipt. I have dry to normal skin that never breaks out, my main concerns are redness and uneven texture. I began to notice small pimples breaking out across my nose and cheeks, but wanted to give this product a full two weeks to see if the breakouts were just introductory. Large, red bumps then began to form under the skin, it seemed like every day I woke up to a new spot on my face. Might just be a bad reaction on my skin personally, but I would not recommend this product.
Love the lotion
from Milwaukee, WI
I began with the 2% BHA Liquid but found it too drying. Even with a thick Paula's Choice moisturizer my skin felt tight. It was winter, so we'll see if I change my tune. I think I'll probably go with a lighter moisturizer now that the weather is warming up, but stay with the lotion. I feel I can get a more even coverage with the lotion and don't have that tight, dry feeling.
I am so glad that I purchased this product. I am already a PC user so I know that the products work; most everything I have used, I have liked. I had to purchase this BHA product b/c my skin was breaking out badly around my chin and cheek area -- since I have used this in combination with the 8% AHA gel, everything has cleared up. I am thrilled that this lotion cleared up the acne and completely smoothed my skin with no redness and no irritation. I am in that bizarre age group where my skin is getting more dry as I age, yet my skin still has occasional annoying breakouts and also needs moisture and smoothness to combat wrinkles...PC goes a long way to help all these issues. So many other products out there are super expensive; this one was very reasonably priced -- another reason I keep returning to PC again and again!

be patient and it works!!
By Olive Rose
from Peoria, IL
I LOVE this. Ive been using it for about a month now, this everyday and the 10% aha weekly resurfacing treatment once a week. At first it seemed like it wasnt doing anything, but as of a few days ago my skin is amazing!!! Definitely noticing smaller pores and hardly any redness anymore which were my two biggest concerns. I've always had bad breakouts in my chin, or at least many blackheads and bumps and now my chin is almost completely clear. Love this stuff!!! Ive attached a picture showing my skin without any makeup!
