I really DON'T like this gel makes my Skin look right after applying. It Looks shiny and the gel is so sticky. I probably works like her other BHA's but I prefer the liquids and Lotion as an exfoliant. I would use it at night time only.

This really helps with my acne and clogged pores. It also makes my skin brighter and smoother. using it every day can irritate my face, though. I think if you suffer from congestion you should try this.

Ok, I'll admit it. I am a product snob and I do indulge in luxury products and many of them work exceptionally well for me. Normally, I wouldn't have even thought about this line, but my mom who has extremely sensitive skin told me about this line. She bought me the BHA 2% and within a couple of days, this product turned into my holy grail. While this is not the prettiest packaging to display in your bathroom, it is the most active and result driven product I've ever owned. I've been using this product non-stop for 5 years. I do have wonderful skin thanks to this product and have not had a major breakout in years. In fact, while using this, it's common to go a month or more without so much as a pimple. I get compliments and in turn I tell others about this product and now, most of my friends and clients use this. One of my very good friends has serious issues with acne and this has improved her skin to the point that she cried because she hadn't had clear skin her whole life. That may sound a bit corny, but that's how good this product works. I don't hesitate to spend hundreds, and while many of those products are phenomenal, none act so quickly. This is overnight change, so I HIGHLY recommend! Give it a shot!

I have used the PC BHA gel for around 2 years, and cannot stand a day without it. Absolutely amazing! I've tried the liquid too, but still, love the gel version.It gives me clear healthy looking skin, and I recently apply it on my body as well. And one day I applied some on my armpit (thinking it has exfoliating effect, hence might brighten my dark armpit a bit), and I accidentally discovered this gel could be a deodorant as well, as any other deodorants out in the market irritates me, I so glad to find the BHA gel has this function as well~

So I don't expect miracles from skincare products. My skin is a combination skin, oily t-zone and very sensitive. I had some very visible blackheads on my nose, bumps and redness on my forehead ( yeah I react awesome to most SPF's) and some dark spots on my nose.I first used it twice a day but my skin turned flaky, I never got flakes.So I contacted costumer service and they recommended to use it every other day. And that works just fine, the bumps on my forehead are gone and my redness diminished. Oh and that lovely bit of hyper pigmentation on my nose? Well it is still there but it reduced in size.So I don't expect wonders but this stuff works!Edit after one monthStill happy with this BHA, the blackheads have diminished and my sebaceous filaments (those tiny dark brown dots) have become smaller.A little warning with this product, use SPF!!I'm not kidding I forgot it two times and each time I burned my face :( in the autumn in Holland. Which is pretty unusual for me.

I used this for a very long time (4+ years), and it was an extremely reliable and gentle bha exfoliant. I find the gel texture to be slightly moisturizing and very gentle (I've never had any irritation from this). I prefer the gel to the liquid (messy to use) and lotion (a little bit too emollient for me).For my combination-to-oily skin, this was effective in preventing clogs on my cheeks, but not enough to completely obliterate the ones on my nose. It did help reduce these, however, and made them easier to extract (done gently with q-tips!). Recently (earlier this year) I switched to Biologique Recherche P50 1970 and I find it's more effective for me ATM (but also much more expensive), but if it weren't available, I'd switch back to this in a heartbeat.

I am surprised at how much I like Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Gel. I have been using this product for the last 1.5 months and can say that I have noticed an improvement in my skins tone and texture. It also serves as a tool to prevent acne because salicylic acid is a great exfoliator. I use this product 1-2 times a day and I love it. A little goes a long way. Highly recommend!

It somewhat helps with my closed comedones, but I hate the sticky texture. Use it at night otherwise you would look shiny during the day. I would try another product after my bottle is finished.

I had multiple samples of this. I'm not very impressed. The texture was very sticky and it felt like it sat upon my skin as opposed to soaking in. This also caused my forehead to break out in small red bumps. Once I stopped using that and washed my face once with Clean&Clear's 10% Benzyl peroxide wash, forehead was completely clear. And I continually kept breaking out on the right side of my jaw. I had a few closed comedones that weren't noticeable prior to this, but as soon as I started using PC's BHA products, I've been having at least one or two red, aggravated pimples at a time. They just won't stop coming. I also used this on my nose to help with my blackheads, nothing. I used this every other night because every night was too drying. Still though, I really didn't see any good results. I've been buying enough samples to where I've been using this stuff for a month or so, if not longer. So yeah. For someone who bashes on tons of other skincare products, I find it funny that hers did nothing but break me out. I'm very disappointed because I think Paula has a good philosophy going along with the tons of glowing reviews on here, but BHA just does not appear to work on my skin.

Game changer! This product has transformed my skin. I have sensitive, dry skin with PIH and large pores. I had been looking into PC skincare and decided to buy some samples as I was a bit skeptical of what their products claim to do. I have been struggling for quite some time that helps with blackheads and pores and also something that would fade my scars. This one product does it all! After only one use of the bha with my normal moisturizer, toner, and face wash my hyperpigmentation had decreased significantly. It took a little longer to work on my pores but still cleared them out nonetheless. I thought this product would make me dry but I actually find that it moisturizes my face a bit, and I have VERY dry skin. That being said, I will be buying the full size bottle once the samples run out.
