The Holy Grail!
from Atlanta, GA
About Me Beauty Conscious
Comments about RESIST BHA 9 Treatment - 0.3 oz:
For those who are on the fence...ignore the nay sayers and try it. I believe the reason it has not worked for many is due to not following directions (or simply extra sensitive skin). "Apply as a spot treatment" to me is translated as DO NOT rub in, but apply to the affected "spot" in a thin layer. Please realize you will need to do this way before bedtime to allow product to dry. I suffer from acne all my life and have used Paula's products in conjunction with Tazorac and managed to have clear skin. However, six months ago tiny bumps under the skin (not acne) showed up on one side of my cheek and nothing from the doctor, facials or my Paula's regiment would make it go away. I decided to get a chemical peel but changed my mind and ordered this instead, In two days I had a 85% improvement and that was a game changer for me.FYI, If a product does not work, eliminate all other products before passing judgement. As I've learned what works for my skin, I've realized that some of Paula's products don't play well with other name brands. Eliminate until the problem is resolved then re-introduce you favs name brand and that just might work. LOVE< LOVE< LOVE< !!!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Works on milia
from Albuquerque NM
This actually works on milia after one night. I use every 2-3 days because I don't like how tacky it feels but effects are somewhat cumulative and it absolutely gets rid of milia and the frown line between my brows. I've tried it on active pimples and it has no effect whatsoever- it seems the only thing that nips those in the bud is the Resist weekly BHA foam AND honestly, forgoing dairy and sugar for a week (which I rarely can do and of course hate). The pump leaks a lot but since I don't travel with it it's not an issue. Cost is in line with what it does!
Service and delivery comments:
Fastest shipping of any company I've used for mail order for sure

Very effective for clearing flare ups
from northern Virginia
On occasional bumps and rough spots that occur
On my third one. Unfortunately, this one leaks. Product does not come out where it should but instead comes out somewhere down on the pump. It took me so long to figure this out and I've used so much anyhow that I think it's too late for me to contact customer service about it. However, customer service in this company is usually wonderful.

Fabulous results in treating "bumps"!
from Hot Springs Village, AR
Upon complaining to my dermatologist about the gradual development (one year history) of approximately 25 individual small, colorless bumps on my forehead, I was advised nothing could be done, including laser treatment. When I read about BHA-9, I had hope something could be done. Within a month of night-time use, a definite improvement was evident. Now, after approximately 6 months, 90% improvement (even disappearance) has occurred. I even still have some product left from the first order!

Amazing. Redness is gone!
from SF Bay Area, CA
About Me Minimalist
Started with the trial size, and after nearly finishing it, my skin is the best it's ever looked! My pores are still large, but I'm hoping with more time they'll still improve. (It's hard for us to be objective!). But for the first time in forever, I look in the mirror with no makeup and my nose and cheeks aren't red! This helped my rosacea way better than the prescription cream that I can't spell. I use it nearly everyday and my oily T-zone hasn't minded at all. I only use it where it's red, but I may branch out and see what it does elsewhere. Well worth the price, IMHO.

This is my skin saver
By Linda L
from Azusa, CA
I have dry, acne prone, sensitive skin. While I am faithfully using the 2% liquid BHA, I NEED this for overnight calming on my hormonal breakouts. I don't think I can live without this. I put this on my sensitive skin every night on stubborn bumps and it seems to help a lot. I combine this with the RESIST 25% Vitamin C and they are powerful duo. I can put these two on any skin problems I have and not have negative reactions, but only good results the next morning.
Miracle Product for Untimely Breakouts
from Denver, CO
About Me Beauty Expert
I received a small sample of this product in one of my monthly beauty boxes. I've really been trying to take good care of my skin prior to my wedding in 10 days. I had a pretty bad breakout on my chin recently and decided to try some of the BHA 9 treatment with my finger to some of the red areas on my chin. The next morning- I was shocked. I nearly could have gone without make-up, that's how well and how quickly my skin had cleared up. I'm so impressed!

Anyone w/issues with other salicylic products- try this!!!
I had issues with other BHA products/salicylic based from Paula's (i.e. SKIN PERFECTING 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant). Must be something else in the product. They made me break out more! Now, I put a dab of the Resist BHA 9 on a breakout & it is gone overnight! I am super thrilled and will now try this for fine lines, redness, enlarged pores. So happy!!!!!!!!
By Lifetime Acne Sufferer
from New York
I find this product most useful as a spot treatment for dark marks/imperfections. Dispenser is horrible--leaks, and you get way more than you need for a spot treatment--big waste of money as this product is not inexpensive. Will buy the sample size only in the future--less wasteful.

Absolutely love product so far, but poor packaging this time
When I first started the using the product two years ago, I was thrilled and continued to re-purchase the BHA 9 because there really is nothing else like it out there. I have oily skin, large pores, and a stubborn chin.I use it alone at night over areas of concern--blemishes, sunspots, an old scar--and over time it has evened out my complexion and brings to the surface otherwise particularly difficult "undergrounders". (You know which ones I mean.) The gel itself is clear, and the texture is a sticky fluid (think syrup-like), so this is a strictly PM routine. No discernable scent from it.I use this in conjunction with sunscreen in the daytime. One purchase like this lasts me around 3 months before I need to repurchase. The product itself is fantastic, however, in my years of receiving this product I have never felt so compelled to write a review until now and this is due to poor packaging this time around. Given the formulation of this product, I absolutely understand the need for the dark tube and pump applicator. However, leakage has now occurred twice having since purchased this in Nov 2016 and that has really disheartened me as two spills from a 0.3 oz product is really wasteful. I physically cringe when it happens because it disappoints me so much. It occurs when the tube lays on its side, and the product leaks out from the top into the cap and when I pop it open to use, a large glob has spilled out onto my fingers. I travel often and while I do my utmost to keep the tube upright, jolts and shifts happen while en route and I'm not happy that the tube isn't able to withstand that. All in all, a great product, just a bad enough package experience this time to warrant my review.
Delivery was within the expected time frame, and as always, packaged neatly without an excessive amount of packaging waste (I'm comparing this to Amazon's yards and yards of package tissue in a large box that has a tiny product inside)
