This has been an awesome product replacing my 2% BHA that just couldn't clear the congestion on my chin and pores on my nose (bumpy chin with some blackheads, blackheads and large pores on nose). I have been using it daily and I have a significant change in just a few days, smooth and clear. The pores on my nose are not noticeable to me like they were. This gel just melts the yuck away! I am 45, I have oily skin with minor hormonal/stress breakouts and I have always taken wonderful care of my skin, so this isn't a review of someone who just now is taking care of their skin and is seeing drastic changes. Due to birth control (synthetic hormones) I have been on Accutane twice for cystic acne, so I know what serious skin problems are. I am so excited that this is working how I had hoped I am looking forward to the difference after a month of use, smooth and glowing for sure!!! Thank you again Paula for an excellent product and helping us take care of our skin and feel beautiful.
