Bang for a buck!

About Me Beauty Conscious
Comments about RESIST BHA 9 Treatment - 0.3 oz:
Just amazing!! You can see a progress in just a one day!! And it's not just a small change that only you can notice!! My skin problem was acne/skin imperfection/enlarged pores. For some reason, I've got a terrible break-outs, just recently. I was so stressed out since I've never had this kind of problem before. I've got a few big zits and my skin felt bumpy because of small whiteheads. And the breakouts left red-ish brown acne scars.Nothing worked until I started using this product! Even though I've only used it only a couple of days, I definitely see a difference. My skin feels much smoother, the bigger zits are diminished, pores are smaller and acne-scars are fading. And people seems to notice it as well. Some people are saying that the product is too expensive. But if you consider how effective it is, this is not true at all. And you're saving much more than seeing your dermatologist or getting a laser treatment. I feel like my skin problem will be totally gone within a month if I keep using it every day.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Must have for oily clogged pores.
from Rochester, MI
Ever since my hormonal acne erupted in college my skin has been so oily and bumpy esp. around my T-zone. This led to those troublesome clogged pores that has now made me so self-conscious about my face since my pores became enlarged. I've tried pore strips and countless drug-store salicylic acids/BHAs, which I've read help with large clogged pores, but they did absolutely nothing for my skin. I'm can't tell you how happy I was to have come across Paula's Choice BHAs esp. the Resist BHA 9, which is now the product I will never live without. I found that the Resist BHA 9 is actually less irritating and much more gentle than Paula's Choice BHA 2% (the BHA 2% made my skin peeled in layers). So gentle that I can use it every day. The Resist BHA 9 is very effective on clogged pores. A few minutes after application, I can dragged my fingers across my nose and a few blackheads and sebaceous follicles would come lose, literally. It also help to smooth out the bumpy texture I had around my T-zone and help reduce the amount of whiteheads I would get weekly. My skin routine includes 1 small pump of the Resist BHA 9 on my oily T-zone nightly and BHA 2% every other night.

Yikes, this see,Ed to make my pores MORE congested.
from Washington, D.C.
I've been using this daily for a week to try to get rid of some stubborn congestion in my t-zone, but it not only did not work but seemed to make the situation much worse. This is the only thing I changed in my routine.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Great Spot Treatment
from Louisville, KY
I have not used this product all over, yet. I have used it for stubborn acne and it has helped tremendously. I also use it on new pimples and it helps them not become large and red.
from Chicago, IL
I really like this product. I changed to this after using the 2% BHA gel and liquid formulas. I felt like those weren't enough for me. And for some reason my skin seems to get more oily when I use the liquid BHA. The BHA 9, however, does a great job. While I'm not totally free of a clogged pores, this does a great job of clearing them the best anything ever has, and, I find that if I feel a large pimple brewing, I apply this directly on it once or twice and it's gone the next day. I typically apply one pump of this to my entire face 2-3 nights a week, alternating with the 1% retinol cream on other nights. I get the benefits of both a strong BHA and retinol without any irritation. Win win.

I had higher expectations. I have been using it for almost two months and my results are the same as other less expensive products I have tried. Disappointingly ordinary.

About Me Minimalist
I bought a sample size of this product about a year and a half ago to try to dissolve several large hard white bumps on the bridge and crease of my nose. After a few months, I didn't see a difference so I quit using the product. When another, smaller white bump appeared between my eyebrows, and one right on my upper lip-line, I decided to make some changes, and one of them was to restart BHA-9, this time with a fresh, full-sized product. This time, the magic worked: it took two months of nightly application, but a few weeks ago, the huge white bump on the bridge of my nose worked itself to the surface and finally popped out, leaving an ugly crater in its wake. But I kept using the BHA-9, and now the skin is smooth and clear. The bump between my eyebrows is nearly gone and as a bonus, the wrinkles have diminished. I still have the tiny white bump above my lip and the one on the crease but they are both smaller so I will keep applying it. I thought I was stuck with these bumps for good. I was wrong. This product took time to work its magic, but it did work. I will repurchase this.

It worked, after a while
Ok so, I really doubted that this product could work on sebaceous hyperplasia. I tried this product a bit, put it back on my self for a few months when I saw no results in the first 2 weeks, and then tried again for a few weeks, alternating with other BHA products. And darned if the bumps haven't shrunk. I have patches of flaking skin where I have applied it over the last few weeks, but the bumps I have been working on are gone. Ok, so, I love the product after all.
I am in my 50s, with normal to dry skin, and this product as well as the 2% BHA liquid have improved my skin dramatically.After experimenting, I found that I get the best result by applying the BHA 9% all over my face at night time, rather than a spot treatment. My skin is noticeably smoother in the morning. I apply the 2% BHA during the day.Of course the product is too expensive to do this as often as I'd like, so 1/week. Also the product is initially sticky, and then becomes tacky for the 1st hour. Lastly, while I like the pump dispenser, it often leaks after use.

See ya, pimples and blackheads!
from Tucson, AZ
About Me Beauty Expert
I was particularly stressed back in January and had a big breakout. My acne had been largely controlled with Paula's Clear kit prior to this breakout. I had a couple huge cystic pimples and several smaller ones along my jawline. This stuff really helped get rid of the stubborn cystic acne so much faster that usual. It really helps diminish the look of the pores on my nose and keeps my nose mostly blackhead free. It's also magic for whiteheads. If I get a little whitehead, this almost always flattens it out by morning. I would give the product 5 stars, but as many have mentioned, the pump on this product needs improvement. You can't control the amount that gets pumped out.
