Additional Information

Why is it different?
The unique, high-concentration of 4% BHA goes deep to exfoliate skin quickly so problematic pores, bumps, and uneven skin texture are improved in half the time. The time-released formula delivers dramatic results, while antioxidants revive skin’s firm appearance for a more youthful look—all with a luxe serum texture that glides over skin for a soothing finish.

What does it do?
Skin becomes dull, dry and congested when dead skin cells build up on its surface. BHA (beta hydroxy acid) mimics the natural exfoliation process of younger skin by helping it shed extra layers while unclogging and clearing pores. Antioxidants step in to further reduce visible signs of aging.
Collapse
How to use
Use after cleansing and toning, daily or weekly. Dispense a few drops and smooth over face, neck and chest. Do not rinse. Follow with the rest of your evening skincare routine.

Makes a difference-but start slow

4

I absolutely must apply a basic moisturizer to my face first as a "buffer" then I apply a drop of the 4% to my face, neck and decollete. I use it approximately twice per week as I have sensitive dry skin and I find it's too harsh and drying to use every night on my face. On my decollete area I can use it more often with no "buffer" moisturizer and the impact is very, very noticeable with no sensitivity issues. This product really does make a difference from the first use with skin tone, smoothness, the appearance of fine lines and clogged pores but - start slow, watch for sensitivity issues, add a buffer moisturizer and adjust your frequency of use if necessary.

Only wish the 9% BHA came in a container like this one.

Love this.

I didn't necessarily buy this for a large pore problem. I just bought it to try it. It's very refining. My skin looks is so refined using this. Love it. Noticed a big difference immediately.

Excellent product

I purchased this for the first time in October, 2017, the bottle lasted until February with consistent use every other night. At first I noticed some little bumps on my cheeks, contacted customer service and was told that it may be the formula exfoliating the skin and bringing up all the stuff from underneath the skin. I kept using it and WOW! the bumps slowly went away, my pores definitely look smaller and my skin feels SUPER SOFT AND SMOOTH! I am on my second bottle and will continue to purchase this product.

Not as good as i had hoped

I used the 4% BHA retexturizing foam a few years ago and it worked better than anything I'd ever tried. I woke up with completely clear pores. But after a couple months my skin began to have a horrible reaction (swollen eyes, painful red irritated skin, peeling)... when this newer 4% option came out I was eager to try it and was hoping for similar results without that insufferable irritation. While it doesn't cause an allergic reaction like the foam, it also doesn't work anywhere nearly as well. My pores do not get completely dissolved. The packaging is also not great, the dropper is difficult to get to suck up a full dropper-full..i have to push down on the lid several times to get the dropper to fill. I don't notice results beyond what the 2% liquids do for my pores. I will be trying BHA9 and other brands next time I run out, still in the search for results comparable to the retexturizing foam.

For my oily/combination skin, this stuff is amazing. I had been using the 2% BHA liquid but I had some stubborn blackheads on my nose that just wouldn't go away. I had previously used the 4% BHA foam but I don't know if they changed the formula or what because when I bought it a second time, my face went nuclear with redness, swelling and bumps. So, I was leery of using a 4% BHA again. After reading the reviews, I decided to try again and I'm so glad I did. The stubborn nose blackheads are totally GONE. My skin texture has also improved a little (acne scars are still keeping me down, though). I will definitely purchase again - I use this almost every day. I have not experienced anything but positive effects. No flaking, redness, breakouts, etc. This may not be the best product for everyone but I am extremely pleased with it and it has delivered on my expectations.

Would gave 5 stars if it had better packaging

I am a huge BHA advocate since discovering PC a few years ago. Since adding this to my regimen, my face looks smoother than ever and I get mistaken for early 30s when I am 43. However, the dropper packaging HAS GOT TO GO. Please, PC, hear us and change this to a regular pump! I cannot get enough product out with the dropper, so I have to go back in 4-5 times. Sometimes I just turn the bottle over and dump some on my hands.

No effect at all for me

My goal was to help reduce congestion/blackheads on my nose and this had zero effect for me. Apparently it works really well for others based on the reviews and I use exclusive Paulas products but this one was a dud for me.

Salicylic acid is one of the best ingredients you can use on your face..big big big difference...give it a few weeks and use it everyday...remarkable difference

Not as good as the foam 4%

3

This is a new product so I thought I would try it. The 4% BHA smells bad but it WORKS. this formula, with a somewhat oily feel, didn't work with my skin. The 4% foam is my go to for extra exfoliation. I use a 1% or 2% BHA daily and 1-2x per week add the 4% foam. The oily slick after feeling was not for me. It was not irritating and I think it did give me some exfoliation. Just not as good as the foam.
