Fabulous results in treating "bumps"!
from Hot Springs Village, AR

Comments about RESIST BHA 9 Treatment - 0.3 oz:
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!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

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!!!!!!!!

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)
Pretty good but not miraculous
Different people will react to this product differently so do give it a chance. It is pretty good - thank you Paula - but it did not clear all the uneven spots/pores. Even though I have rosacea, it did not irritate my skin. I expected heavy peeling, but it did not happen either. Nor did I find it greasy - it absorbs very quickly. I saw the results on my forehead, cheeks and chin, but it has not been effective clearing pores and small bumps on my nose and jaw area. My only disappointment is its size - it is tiny and 10 times smaller than Paula's 2 % BHA gel (which I cannot recommend enough) but it does not deliver 10 times the potency of the gel so it is hard to justify the price.
Not effective and wasteful packaging
This product was a waste of money. I used it to try and remove some white bumps under my eye area. Did absolutely nothing. A lot of product came out of the tube so there was a lot of waisted product.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Should be gel form
from New York, NY
It is too runny to be used as spot treatment. It runs to larger area than suppose to thus irritate the skin. If you use it everyday, your skin will turn red for sure. If you use it 2-3 times a week, it is not effective. It cannot smooth bumpy skin. It is much worse than 2% BHA liquid.
