What does it do?
Delivers smoother, visibly younger-looking skin overnight. Specialized technology encapsulates the anti-aging and pore-reducing BHA for time-released delivery—so you get dramatic, non-irritating results without flaking skin. Also helps to visibly calm redness and revive skin’s firm appearance for a more youthful look. It’s even suitable for skin prone to milia.

How to use
Use at least once weekly, at night. After cleansing and toning, dispense one pump and smooth treatment over face, neck, and chest. Do not rinse. Follow with the rest of your evening skincare routine.

May be used once a week or daily depending on your skin's response and your concerns. It can be applied at the same time as your regular BHA exfoliant, but pay attention to how your skin responds and adjust usage accordingly. Do not apply to lips or eyelids eye area.

If eye contact occurs, hold eye open and rinse immediately and thoroughly with plenty of water for at least 20 minutes. Remove contact lenses, if present, after the first five minutes, then continue rinsing the eye. Consult your eye doctor immediately for care advice.

Great for Retexturing!

I use this every other night as part of my nightly routine. It works wonders! This is a must have if you have uneven texture or scars/marks from previous acne.

SO Sad!!

I've been using this product for over 5yrs & it is the only product that has helped me to completely eliminate my cystic acne. I own the full size of the new formula but it doesn't work! My heart is broken over the discontinuation. I can't afford to stock up, so I guess the only thing left to do is prepare myself for the return of the ugly, painful cysts.

A MUST have!!!

I've been using this product for 5+yrs. & I can honestly say I can't live without it!! Before PC I suffered from severe cystic acne my entire life. Then I found Paula & my "PC's routine" helped however, this was THE product that made all the difference. Btw...the newer formula of this does not work in any way like this one! This lil baby is a powerhouse however I can still use it in addition to my Clear Extra Strength 2% BHA + my Retinol Booster - (although I usually wait 20min. between any/all BHA + AHA application & my Retinol.) My face would literally not be the same if this version was discontinued! So PLEASE don't eliminate it!!! My only "issue" & it's a new one for me, is that my bottle leaked A LOT (lid was full + the ziplock it was in, was holding liquid!???). I've had leakage issues with the bottles of 2% BHA but NEVER this? The bottle itself was purchased around the first of July but it had never been used. I've traveled extensively & this always goes with me. Why did it leak SO much? The bottle itself now feels about half full. Everything I use is PC so the cost vs. loss for this definitely puts a dent in my wallet! My heart hurts over the loss of all my FAV product! Rather than trying a new product I'll have to replace this one.

The smell means it works

Look, the stuff works to de-clog my pores, exfoliate my skin, and smooth bumpiness. Yes it smells kinda bad (but seriously it's minor), and the foam smoothes out to a somewhat sticky liquid. But it's not a going-out product, it's a specialized treatment. Would you wear a mask out of the house? No. This is basically an exfoliating foam-to-liquid mask. I wear it for part of the day but wash it off before sun exposure, or as an overnight treatment so it washes off in the morning. I only use it periodically as a supplement to daily use of 2% BHA solution, when my skin feels extra rough or the pores are looking extra dirty. So my bottle is going to last a long time.

PLEASE DON'T DISCONTINUE!!!!

I'm honestly in a panic after receiving an email that this product is being discontinued. I'm a woman in my mid-30s who has suffered from lifelong extreme keratosis pilaris. I wouldn't wear anything with short sleeves as a child because of the teasing and cruelty from other kids and was still so self-conscious as an adult I kept up that habit UNTIL I tried this product. It's the only thing that's ever really worked for me, and believe me, I've tried everything under the sun. It cleared up my skin completely and now it's 100% smooth and clear, no redness, no bumps, just pretty skin. It's a miraculous product and I think you will see from other reviews that I am not the only person who has found it incredibly helpful for KP and body acne, too. I have recommended it to everyone and I'm always so happy to be able to point people to a product that WORKS. The replacement product PC suggested just isn't reasonable for application anywhere other than the face (it's a serum). The foam is so perfect for application on the body (and the face! it's great on my face, too!) but I have to plead especially for us who have found relief for our body skin issues with this product because there is truly nothing else like it. I use it daily on my body's problem spots and up-to weekly on my face (usual caveats about strength of product/working up to frequent use/finding the frequency that works best for your unique skin). Please, please, please don't discontinue it, or at least consider repackaging it for use on the body? You have some very loyal users who are going to be heartbroken if you take it away completely. And I really don't want to have to go back to wearing long sleeves year-round. This is devastating.

Awesome exfoliator

I've used this product on and off for a couple of years now and every time I start using it again I wonder why did I ever stop. I guess it's just human nature always thinking there's something better out there but I just really love this. I also like the advanced 4% treatment which I recently started to use again daily and use the foam 1-2 times weekly. My skin is smoother and my pores are definitely smaller. Also keeps my blackheads on my nose under control. Great product.

I love this product, but respect it's power!

One pump goes a long way and dries quickly. Compared to the 4% treatment serum, this foam version is respectfully more potent. I started out using it once per week and built up to twice per week. My skin improved tremendously and is near flawless with continued and CONSISTENT use. Just be respectful to it like you would potent retinol products - use consistently but sparingly.

Love. Better than the 4% treatment

5

I absolutely love this and it gives me immediate results. I use it once a week as a leave-on and once a week 30 minutes before a clay mask. It makes my pores look clear and tight. I love it much more than the 4% treatment which is more expensive and I have never noticed any results from it. 1 to 1.5 pumps is really all you need so it lasts a very long time. I hope you never discontinue it. I feel so bad for the people who have a bad reaction to this. Everyone should always spot test new products a few times before putting it all over your face. Keep it far away from the eye area. You can also use it as a mask, leave on for 30 minutes then rinse off. It could also help to not put it on damp skin as that would make you absorb it more quickly.
