How to use
At night, apply as a leave-on spot treatment for stubborn imperfections. Dispense a very small amount of RESIST BHA 9 onto a clean fingertip, and massage a thin layer over affected areas. Suitable for use around the eyes, but avoid contact with eyelids and do not apply along the lower lashline. Experiment to see which method works best for your skin concerns. May be applied over larger areas if needed. Reduce frequency of usage if irritation or flaking occurs.

Remarkable!

I bought the full size, plus 2 of the sample size (great for travel and they can be refilled!) and doled them out to family members. My problem that I have never been able to 'fix' was that of sebaceous hyperplasia. I get a laser treatment every few years but it is expensive and can only be done in the winter months. Right now, with my night sweats--thank you menopause--they develop at a much faster rate and I was trying to find a product that could help me out in the interim. This is it! It doesn't remove them but the serum definitely flattens them down so they aren't nearly as noticeable. I'm 57-years old and love it! My son, at age 19 developed cystic acne. These breakouts are large, painful and can leave scarring. Reluctantly, he tried the BHA 9 for two weeks. Bingo! His face is not completely clear of acne, but the cystic acne is gone. No more mountains on his face. Lastly, my mom who is 85-years old had gone to dermatologists for the past two years trying to get rid of tiny bumps all over her face without success. The bumps are not acne, I think it is called milia. After ONE treatment almost all of the bumps disappeared. They have not completely gone--the ones around her nose are still visible--but the difference is amazing and considering all the money she spent at dermatologists which gave her zero results, this has been a silver bullet. My only criticism of the product is what others have said; the pump is horrible unless you want to use a good amount of product. You cannot control the blob that comes out when you push the pump and that is annoying when you are trying to use sparingly. Other than that, this is a great product and so for anyone struggling with one of the issues I mentioned, I felt obligated to share our results. Use at night as recommended because it is tacky to the touch and therefore not good to use with makeup.

Amazing, best product

Amazing. Lightweight, absorbs well so layers well, obliterates pores, acne & milia... unbelievably effective! Expensive but you use so little that it's worth it. Do not like the 2%BHA liquid at all. It's heavy, sticky & irritates my skin. Get this instead!

Evened out skin tone

5

I've never liked how my skin looks without foundation because of uneven texture/tone. The only thing I've changed to my routine is applying this to my whole face every night and it has transformed both the texture to be so much smoother and the skin tone so much more even. I love it so much.

Best product!

I've used this product for years and it is amazing. It is probably my favourite Paula's Choice product and I never allow myself to run out. I have used it to treat a couple of large pores successfully and sebaceous zits. I have never had an issue with packaging at all. I don't think the formula or packaging needs to be changed.

remarkable for acne

5

I originally purchased this hoping it'd clear up a bit of milia on my cheek, I applied it religiously but it didn't have any affect so I ultimately had them removed by my dermatologist. But the real winner for this spot treatment is for acne, if I see a zit starting to form I'll put a bit on and it often nips it in the bud. I'll be repurchasing for sure. I know the pump makes it hard to dispense a very small amount, which yes, is kind of annoying if I only have one small spot to cover, but I throw it on any discoloration spots if I have any leftover so I find I'm not wasting it.

It works !

5

The solution itself works , I noticed difference shortly after starting using it . I rate that as a 5*! However , I saw all the reviews about The bad packaging , and didn't believe is that bad. I need the solution to be applied only on my nose , and the pack dispenses to much at the time , so half of my product is waisted . It is priced high for the quantity you get , so I would rather not waist it.

Love the product, hate the packaging

5

I have been using this product for a few years and j love it. I've never been a fan of the packaging as it does sometimes dispense more than you need but I could deal with it because the product is so good. But the last couple I have purchased seem to have an issue with leaking that I have never experienced before. I traveled with it last summer and by the time I reached my destination it had leaked all over the other products in my bag and the bottle was completely empty. I ordered a replacement and the bottle had leaked before it reached me. Has there been a change in design or suppliers? Please fix this! The product itself is great, I have overall very clear skin but suffer from hormonal cystic acne. This stuff clears the acne must faster than anything I've tried recently and the redness and scarring goes away quickly.

Best product ever!

I put this treatment on before bed and noticed a huge difference in my skin in just one use. My pores are smaller and I do not see dead skin sitting on my face. I will forever use this product!

Extraordinarily Effective on Blackheads

5

I have dry skin, but my nose is extremely prone to blackheads. This stuff is magic. If I religiously use it morning and evening, I have few, if any, blackheads. It stings a little when I first apply it occasionally, but it doesn't irritate in any other way, and the sting passes quickly. I am reviewing the product primarily because I, too, am frustrated by the darn pump. It's just impossible to pump out the small amount I need for my nose. The upside is that I found somewhere on my body that is bumpy on that particular day to spread the excess. The downside is that I'm using the product more quickly than I would prefer.

Holy grail

5

I love this product so much. Wearing makeup really takes a toll on my skin and pores & this stuff is so strong but gentle and clears everything from the inside! TIP- especially if you have sensitive or dry skin use a night oil first before applying & it works even better together! I use Juno from Sunday Riley or even a pure Jojoba oil works amazingly! You won't regret it. I also love the packaging, I don't relate to the comments saying to change it. I usually use at least one full pump anyway for all over my nose and mouth/chin area (wherever there's clogged pores or rough patches) they'll be gone & you will be glowing by the AM!
