My skin glows

Comments about 2% BHA Lotion - 3.3 oz:
I started using this product about a year ago. Previous attempts with drug store exfoliates had been the opposite of successful, irritating my skin badly.Paula's Choice is the only line of products that has worked for my hormonal acne. It took a few (maybe as many as 8-12) weeks for the full benefits to be seen but it's undeniable the difference PC has made to my skin. I have clean, bright, luminescent skin with only rare blemishes (which, when I do get them, are much smaller and disappear much quicker than before). I am almost religious about my skincare routine these days:Morning1. Cleanser (I don't use PC brand for this)2. PC brand toner3. PC brand exfoliant (this product)4. PC brand moisturizer mixed with the PC brand Vitamin C drops (I use a PC brand moisturizer for extremely dry skin - it's better than any other moisturizer I've ever used and got me through last winter without the dry skin issues I've experienced in the past; the drops make my skin glow)5. PC brand sunscreen6. MakeupEvening1. Cleanser (I don't use PC brand for this)2. PC brand toner3. PC brand exfoliant (I use three pumps of BHA 9 daily which is way more than most people seem to use according to the reviews, but it doesn't irritate my skin and helps keep it moisturized)
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

2% BHA Lotion
About Me Beauty Conscious
Ordered the 2% instead of the 1% by accident. Decided to try because its becoming winter and my skin has been drier than normal. much thicker than the 1% and somewhat greasy before absorbing. Have used for three and have broken out in too many pimples. Will be exchanging for the 1%.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Solved my dry skin yet can sometimes break out problem!
from San Francisco
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...

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
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.

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.
