Ratings & Reviews

It works !


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.





This is such a shame, even though I LOVE the product and it really delivers the pump leaks all over and I loose too much product. I won't repurchase until they fix this problem. Too much liquid comes up in one pump and then it leaks and its frustrating!! Its not cheap so I would expect a better quality packaging like the rest of PC products.



Love the product, hate the packaging


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.

I KNOW I am not the only one who has had a leaky bottle. So much product is being wasted. and for something this expensive, when it only comes in a small amount, it a huge disappointment. I need this product but I can no longer justify spending the money and having half of it leak everywhere. I will no longer be purchasing unless they change the packaging. Please listen to your customers...... Almost every single review on this product has mentioned the leaky packaging... Thank you.



Great product but awful packaging


Love this BHA, it works wonderful! the packaging is rubbish though, I dont need a full pump so I end up loosing half the product. The pump leaks and its frustrating. Please PC team do something about it!

Package leaks


I like this product, but would like it a lot better if it came in different packaging. I don't need a full pump and it's hard to get just a little bit out at a time. Also, the pump on my bottle leaks all the way around the depressor, wasting expensive product.




Terrible packaging


I have bought it twice by now and every time more than half of it has spilled out of the container just because. I can't figure out what causes the pump to start leaking but once it starts doing it, the product runs out fast, specially if it is stored laying flat instead of standing up (imaging keeping a marker always staring up). I love the product, it does work for me but it is very expensive specially if I only get to use half of the bottle.

Extraordinarily Effective on Blackheads


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


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!




Product Works Well, But the Dispenser is TERRIBLE!


I purchased this product for small blemishes and stubborn blackheads. I found that this product works well as a spot treatment. The reason I gave this product a lower rating is because it has one of the worst dispensers of any bath and body product I've ever used! The pump is designed so that it is almost impossible to dispense any less than a pea-sized amount of product. This is quite a lot of product considering the amount in the tube. It's also a lot more product than a spot treatment requires and I found myself unnecessarily applying the product to other areas of my face because of how much you are basically forced to dispense. I also find this dispenser to be messy and that the product leaks around the dispenser. I'm not sure I'll purchase this again. I'm surprised with all the comments about the dispenser, it has not bee redesigned to that the user has control over how much product to dispense.
