Just as good as th Bha-1 lotion
from Orange, Ca
Comments about 2% BHA Lotion - 3.3 oz:
So I thought that I wasn't gonna like it because it's stronger and my skin is pretty sensitive, my skin is reactive and acne prone so I really have to be careful but luckily this does work well enough I'm so glad I purchased this now I have a good daily exfoliater. Thank you Paula for making gentle products . Oh and please bring back the resist SPF 25 moisturizer for dry to dry skin please do not just continue that and also bring back the barely there as those are my two staple products in my routine .
Service and delivery comments:
Delivery time is always great
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have been using the old version and it completely changed my skin for the better! It's the only thing that helps for both Rosacea type 1 (flushing, stinging, dry) and type 2 (rosacea acne) to the point of making Finacea (prescription for type 2) redundant. The old formula was a bit sticky, but so what, it worked! The new version it's too light, drying and irritating for me. I understand the need for a light version, but that why you have the gel and the liquids isn't it? The "lotion" (now gel) was supposed to be for those with normal to dry skin who couldn't use the lighter versions or AHA. It was the only BHA for dry skin by any brand that I know of, so now I don't know what to do. And isn't not just vanity, Rosacea hurts. Please bring back the old version, or simply any BHA for dry skin, cause this one isn't!
Getting results with this product
Great exfoliant for my dry, sensitive AND acne-prone skin. I like that it is not too heavy, it controls my blemishes (still having some small bumps but nothing too bad), helps with post-pimple marks, doesn't leave any tacky feeling on the skin. Haven't seen any improvement on my blackheads/large pores. I wouldn't mind it being a bit more moisturizing. I can use this only every other day, but that was the case with the CALM Redness Relief 1% BHA Lotion Exfoliant also. CALM BHA did nothing for my skin, 2% liquid was too drying so this has been the best one for my skin. I have been using this only for a month, so I am hoping the results will improve over the time, wasn't expecting radical results in such a short period of time :)

Ring back the old formula!
from Oklahoma City
I used the old formula for several years and it was the miracle lotion I had always been looking for. Just ordered the new formula and it goes on well but my skin feels very dry even if I mix it with moisturizer. I won't be buying it again. I thought I had finally found a great lotion that would be around for a long time. Guess not! PLEASE BRING BACK THE OLD FORMULA!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

New formula not performing
from Toronto Canada
I have combination skin. Some areas of my skin are oily, some are on the dryer side of normal. The old formula was a nice thick lotion and was perfect for me. It kept my skin tone even, my face hydrated and never oily. It also kept my adult acne at bay. Loved it and used it for about 3 years. Then, they changed the formula. I have been using the new formula since January, and my skin is dry and flaky in places, feels tight all over. I have been having breakouts, and the blackhead are back with a passion. It's very disappointing. The new "lotion" is very thin. It's more like a liquid than a lotion. I'm not sure why they are trying to pawn the entirely new product off as the same thing as the lotion. If anyone at Paula's Choice has the ability to bring the old formula back, please please please do so!
My Favorite Skin Product!
from Long Beach, CA
This product is a lifesaver. I have normal to dryish skin, and I was previously using an AHA Lotion (not PC). It was perfectly adequate, but nothing to write home about. A few months later I stopped taking my birth control pills and got an IUD. My skin was NOT pleased. I absolutely never break out and here I am at 27 with zits all over my forehead. I decided to switch from AHA to BHA, to this lotion in particular, and my face cleared up almost overnight. I know its 100% due to this product because if I miss a few days, bam a zit comes in. On top of that my skin looks smoother and more even. It's gotten to the point where I won't go anywhere without this product. I am so happy I found this!

Super disappointed with the new formula
By Kyla P
from Toronto, CA
I purchased the old formula about a year ago, and it was amazing! It would work wonders under makeup, absorbed quickly, and lived up to all the hype that led me to purchase it in the first place. This new formula doesn't absorb as well, is a bit sticky and it more of a gel than a lotion. PLEASE bring back the original formula. Why mess with perfection.
Delivery was average.
Not a fan of the new formulation
from New York, NY
I loved the old product, and have been using it for years. It totally got rid of my acne, everyone compliments me on how my skin is perfect! It was very soothing and moisturizing. The new formulation is more like a gel than a lotion, very drying to my already dry skin. Even using the heavier PC moisturizers on top of it, my skin still ends up dry after an hour or so. If the lotion is turned into a drying gel, why have the lotion formulation at all? I want the old version back!
from Park Ridge, IL
If I didn't want a LOTION, I would have bought another formulation. I wasn't even aware that it had changed when I purchased it. I don't like it at all. I will try using my bottle in the summer to see if I like it any better. If you call it LOTION, it should be a LOTION. You already have a gel.

So much better than before
from Los Angeles, CA
I love the new formula of the 2% lotion. It's more of a gel-lotion consistency now and it absorbs faster than both the previous lotion iteration and current 2% gel formula. The old formula took long to rub into the skin and this one melts in.I have oily skin and don;t find it too moisturizing and I think this is the easiest BHA formula to use.
