Even though I have sensitive to dry skin this works incredibly well on my blaon my nose and chin. Can't live without it. I Use all of paulas products and my 51 year skin has never looked better.

I have blackheads on my nose and this product is much better than most others-and I've tried them all. From steaming my face and then squeezing them,(they come back) scrubs,(they come back), foaming cleansers, clay masks, Clarisonic...you guessed it-they come back. This product minimizes the pores and with diligence gets rid of a few of the smaller ones. I use either the Claisonic or a exfoliating wash-not at the same time, a few times a week. Then I put a few drops of Paul's Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA lotion on a Q-Tip,(this way you don't waste the product) -it does take a while to dry. As it's drying I notice my pours are remarkably smaller. I use this every day.

This product came recommended (plus the website really gives good 'sell') and it is affordable. But it really doesn't do much. It is thick but not really moisturising. It gave my little white-heads under my chin/neck but doesn't really improve skin with regular use. Won't buy again, and actually will be hard pressed to finish the pump I have now.

I usually don't have problems with BHAs, my skin's liked them in the past and has reacted well to them. This product broke me out no matter how much or little I used. A bunch of little whiteheads would surface in tight patches in my normal breakout spots and spread. This was the only new addition to my routing besides the Paula's Choice Resist Vitamin C Serum, and I use that now as part of my normal morning routine without issue.
The bottle is alright, with a hole to dispense liquid on cotton.
The smell is something to get used to, but not something unbearable.
The feel is a bit slimier than I expected of a liquid treatment.
The cost is good for the amount of active product.
The ingredients show no know irritants for my sensitive skin (and I research everything I put on my face diligently.)
Will NOT buy again. I've switched to sulfur-based treatments since my skin seems to react to them immediately without causing further acne. Sulfur soap for breakouts, gentle facial cleansing liquid with a konjac sponge otherwise, PC's Resist serum, PC's Resist moisturizer or a thicker night cream, Queen Helen's Mint Julep mask every other week, and Mario Badescu's Drying Lotion for spot treatment.

My friend raved about this as the secret to her perfect skin so I took the plunge. Also the website has good deals from time to time so affordability isn't the problem. The only thing is it doesn't live up to it's claims of: creating radiant, even toned skin, reduces redness or unclogging and diminishing pores. In fact it irritates my skin if I used too much and even as a spot treatment for break outs it doesn't work effectively.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Medium Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
I use in the mornings. Still not sure how much of a difference it's making, but I'm convinced it's a good thing to have in my routine.

O M G let me just start by saying all of paulas products have broken me out, they are such low horrible quality. When i first tried this lotion it burned my skin, it gave me some horrible pimples, don't buy this unless you wan't pimples in a bottle.

My skin does not react to salicylic acid very well, so I don't experience great results using this product. I feel some stinging when I use it, which I think is normal. And it does not dry out my skin. If your skin likes this type of acid, I would give this product a try, otherwise I would recommend her AHA lotions, which I enjoy better.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Dry, Tan Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
I love this product as a spot treatment for blemishes. With that said, as an exfoliator in general i don't particularly find this to be as good as an AHA based exfoliant

I'm so happy that this product worked so many reviewers, but I'm less impressed with it. I got it as a sample with a Paula's Choice order, so maybe the formula is different? I've used it four night in a row and haven't seen any difference (not surprised... I wouldn't base my review on such a short duration). What I found odd and what would make me not purchase a full sized bottle is that it applies like a really heavy, old school sunscreen and takes forever to absorb. I haven't used much of the product, but it applies unevenly and just too heavy for my taste.
