Buying this product was THE BEST thing I could have done for my face! I’ve always had clear skin on the perimeter of my face, but every other inch of my face was riddled with large pores, blackheads, or breakouts (totally embarrassing because at 24 y/o, I have worse skin than most teenagers). This 2% BHA liquid has improved my skin so much I could cry. I’ve used it for about a month and a half and my acne has diminished significantly, my skin looks brighter and smoother, and my acne scarring is fading. I normally wash my face with the Cerave Foaming Cleanser first then dab 2-3 drops of this product with my fingers onto my problematic areas and spread it out to the rest of my face before applying moisturizer. I find that applying the product straight onto my fingers instead of a cotton pad is just as effective and wastes less product in the long run. Be aware that I have oily/combination skin. The 2% BHA also comes in gel and lotion form, which may suit other skin types better. I haven’t used the PC customer service but I have heard they are very polite and are happy to give free skincare consultations over the phone in order to help you choose the product that is right for your skin type/concerns. Their YouTube channel also has awesome informational videos on PC products and skincare. Also, as some other reviewers pointed out, the product is moderately expensive but you can get a really great discount. The full size for this product is normally $28. Since PC lets you double up coupons online (they are always floating around), I was able to pair up a referral code and a 20% off code I found on the internet. In the end, I was able to buy the full size with FREE shipping and three complementary product samples for a little over $12. Using a referral code link automatically takes you the Paula’s Choice website and gives a $10 discount. My code is https://goo.gl/zOBCb5

Great for keeping blackheads away, though it is slow to get rid of current ones. It goes on a little sticky so I prefer to do it over night. I also have sensitive and dry skin so I can't exfoliate more than every other day, but it does a great job! My skin feels a lot smoother now that I'm using this.The packaging could be better, I usually waste a small amount of product every time I dump it into my hand. I don't use a cotton swab but still always pour more liquid than I need. That said it still lasts forever, especially when you only use it every four days (because every other 2 days I use PC's 8% AHA gel). I am having a hard time explaining that, but bha-nothing-aha-nothing-repeat is my cycle. My skin doesn't look sickly anymore, and the few pimples I get go away faster than ever.It's kind of expensive but I use coupon codes and my referral link to afford it. If you're a new buyer you can get $10 off if you use this: http://goo.gl/GtjEk5. (I hope this isn't against the rules, feel free to let me know if it is and I'll remove it!)Overall I would definitely recommend this. Don't forget to moisturizer afterwards, especially if you have dry skin.

GODSEND.- is helping to heal active acne and leftover hyper pigmentation from previous breakouts- no reason to use a manual exfoliant since this works beyond what a traditional exfoliant can achieve.- improved, soft as a baby's bottom skin texture- radiant beautiful skinThe only thing I'm not entirely a fan of is the flat surface opening of the cap. Because less is definitely more with this product (applying even slightly too much can result in a tacky or greasy looking appearance and feel.) At first I applied morning and night daily and I started getting new little pimples, cut back, and now it's back to doing its amazing job. I learned from a couple other reviewers about the frequency of which the skin will tolerate this product and have found my balance. I apply with my fingers only (I think a cotton ball would be a waste and over-use of the product) by first putting just a couple drops on the back of my hand then smoothing over problem areas nightly, and a full face treatment once or twice weekly. I can't imagine I ever lived without this product before and had no idea a liquid chemical exfoliant was even an option until I had just about exhausted myself by trying other products that just kept prolonging the problem and further irritating my skin. I can't thank Paula's Choice enough, and their YouTube channel is phenomenal!I found coupon codes on the internet to bring the price down but still, for what you get for this product its worth every cent. Thank you Paula's Choice!

I absolutely love this stuff!I first became interested in it because my skin used to have a great deal of acne. Thanks to a strict skincare routine, most of that is controlled. However, I suffer from leftover redness, acne scarring, and often get KP on my face: not the best. I got so frustrated that I started researching why my face was reacting this way and stumbled upon a recommendation for this product.I was a bit hesitate at first because of the price but so sick of my skin that I took the plunge. NO REGRETS. I had never realized how effective chemical exfoliants could be. This is not at all drying to my skin and I have experienced an enormous difference in skin texture. No more KP: it is smoother than it has ever been! My redness has also significantly faded from areas that I do not get breakouts. My only issue is that I have to wait a little for it to sink into my skin but that is such a small price to pay for such an excellent result.If you are hesitating about the price, here is a little relief:Feel free to use my referal code: https://goo.gl/bdPnHX because it will give you 10$ off.Also, if you search for coupon codes, you can often find either 20% or free goodies! Important tip: you can use 2 coupon codes for every order! :)

Love this stuff! It has really made a difference in the texture of my skin and brightened it as well. I do agree with some of the reviewers who said they broke out - I got some tiny bumps on my cheek and chin the first week, but they disappeared as I was using the product more often -it was as though my skin needed time to get used to this. Well worth the $, and use this link to get $10 off your order! https://goo.gl/NNpX7Z

So basically I'm using the 1% BHA gel, 2% gel, and 2% liquid all interchangeably. I definitely believe that the liquid version is the best out of all. I do not know why, considering it's the same amount of BHA as the gel, but the liquid does seem to give quicker results somehow. The gel also gives great results. But anyway, this is one of those products that 100% made a difference in my skin. I honestly think it has done better than my Tretinoin cream. Keep in mind that your skin will need a good month to get used to this product. When I first started using this, my skin was pretty red and I got some tiny bumps. If you want to avoid this, I'd start out with the 1% gel. Definitely recommend trying this out.

Skin: Very Oily, Olive, Not Sure
This product is the ONE that makes a difference in my skin, all my other products are just complementary and to improve the overall appearance and texture of my skin. Everyone especially with oily skin needs to try this, it reduced my acne bumps overnight the first time I used it, since then I only get ocasional pimples due to hormones, it has also reduced my redness and my skin tone looks brighter and more even. You can use my 10$ discount code https://goo.gl/DH6dyXto keep reusing don't repurchase with your account because it stays registered and you can only use it once, just click the link when you want to rebuy something another day and don't log in your account, check out as guest, my advice :)

Skin: Acne-prone, Fair, Not Sure
I really wanted this product to work for me. I spot tested it on my clog prone chin for a couple of weeks. What I didn't notice creeping up on me was the fact that seemingly every pore on my chin was becoming clogged. Then one day a few larger blemishes appeared and I couldn't ignore it any longer. It wasn't a purge. It was a mess of closed comedones, blackheads and clogged pores. Unfortunately, I discovered that I'm one of those people who can't handle methylpropanediol and/or butylene glycol. Months later, I'm still cleaning up the mess and finally found a BHA product that I *think* works well for me (Walgreen's Daily Acne Pads). While this may work fantastically for some, I felt compelled to post a review from someone that cannot successfully use it in the hopes that it may help someone else.

I have found this to be the most effective non-prescription product I have ever tried for fighting my adult/hormonal acne. After about a month of using this exfoliant, my skin looks better than it has in a long time. Within a few days of use, the spots on my chin and jawline began to flatten and heal. Even some of the red marks from past breakouts began to fade a little. I have still experienced a few hormone-related breakouts while using this product, but I feel like even those healed and faded faster. In addition to helping clear up my breakouts, this has also made the skin on my cheeks and forehead look smoother and brighter.Even though I have sensitive skin, I find that I can tolerate using this twice a day; it is unscented and non-irritating, and as long as I follow it with a good moisturizer, it doesn't dry out my skin. Instead of applying with a cotton pad, I dispense about three or four drops into the palm of my hand and then smooth the product over my skin, concentrating on problem areas. I find this method wastes less product; I'm still only about three-quarters of the way through the trial size bottle and it's been over a month, so I imagine a full size bottle will last quite a while. My only complaint is that it does have a slightly sticky/greasy feel on my skin, however, I'm quite willing to overlook that flaw in a product so effective. Overall, I am very satisfied with this product. I wish I had discovered it years ago.
