BRING BACK THE OLD FORMULA PLEASE!!!
Comments about 2% BHA Lotion - 3.3 oz:
I'm pretty disappointed with this new formula although I will give it a chance and hoping it will perform even close to the old version...I am not at all happy with the new "gel" texture it's no longer a lotion, it also feels much more irritating to my skin. I miss the old creamy lotion version this one feels quite drying and leaves a tacky finish which does not absorb immediately the way the old one did (I was able to apply makeup immediately after application it absorbed instantly) this formula is sticky and sits on top of the skin for far too long. It reminds me of the liquid and gel versions which I sampled once and I was not interested! SO DISAPPOINTED!!! WHY they had to change a perfect formula for my sensitive combination skin, dry surface, enlarged pores I don't know. The old version was the PERFECT solution and I used it twice daily...this one will be more of a night time treatment as I find it a bit too irritating for under makeup NOT GOOD! Just perplexed by this change, loved the old formula, many of us are moaning about it I HOPE PAULA'S CHOICE LISTENS AND BRINGS IT BACK!!!!

Re: My not so favorable review
from Oklahoma City, OK
I recently gave a negative review for this product. I decided to keep using it to see if it might work for me after all. Although I still like the old creamier formula better, this new formula has been working for me. It came down to me using a very moisturizing cleanser (not PC's) with the new formula. Skin is still a bit tight after first putting it on, but the tightness soon goes away. Tiny bumps are going away and my skin seems brighter and looks healthier. It's only been a short time so time will tell, but it looks like this might just work for me after all.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Newer version is better!
I really like this new version of this defoliant as the old one was horrible! It does what it suppose to do! SKIN PERFECTING 2% BHA Lotion Exfoliant has a light lotion texture that softens and hydrates skin as it gently and naturally exfoliates dead skin. Thanks!

Just as good as th Bha-1 lotion
from Orange, Ca
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 .
Delivery time is always great

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!

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!
