First, about me. I have large pores, oily and textured skin. Sun damaged, aging skin. I'm using Retin A but my skin is sensitive and even at its lowest dose, it's too irritating for around my nose, mouth and chin. I use Retin A on the perimeter of the my face and BHA on the middle. I use the 2% extra strength PC serum during the day.

I bought this a few years ago now and …

I came across the first mention of this many years back in one of PC's FAQ sessions on how to tackle Keratosis Pilaris (chicken skin). It was something they were planning on launching in the future. Recently whilst browsing the PC website I stumbled upon BHA 9 and realized that this was that product, although not sure how I hadn't spotted it sooner! Purchased a tube straight away and …Read more

This is an excellent product for when a spot pops up. I always order two at a time, it's one of the few products I really don't like to be without. I have super sensitive skin and I've never had any issues with this.

I have a very oily nose with numerous sebaceous filaments which have bothered me for many years. I've used many different BHA products over the years, including some of the other Paula's Choice BHA offerings (the 2% solutions weren't strong enough). This, along with the Resist Weekly Retexturizing Foaming Treatment 4% BHA are the only products I've tried that can treat them …Read more

Paula's Choice BHA9% gel solution is an unusual skin exfoliating treatment designed to treat deep blackheads, whiteheads or any kind of tiny bumps under the skin. The beta-hydroxide solution at the right pH is able to penetrate the pore lining and unclog trapped oil and dead skin cells, reducing and eventually eliminating unsightly blackheads and congested pores -- and this stuff really …Read more

this product is the best for acne prone skin for people who live in very dry area like me. But only this product is not gonna help you get rid of acne, you will need something stronger for acne like drying lotion (kate somerville or mario badescu) on your acne area, this product will help prevent your skin from being tok dry from the acne lotion without giving you more acne

Background:
I have acne prone skin, with a lot of clogged pores (cheeks, chin, forehead), blackheads all over and super oily skin. I had great success with Paula's other BHA products (below) and thought I'd amp up the BHA % for those extra-tough spots/areas.

Some years ago I was all about AHAs, but these days BHAs have helped me more with my issues with clogged pores …

I received the BHA9 as a sample with recent PC order. I have been using the 2% BHA liquid for 4-5 months with no significant difference. I think it helps keep things clear, but I have had issues with blackheads on my nose and cheeks for years now. No product I have used whether it be BHA, retinol, tactuo, benzoyl peroxide, or glycolic acid will touch them. The only thing that helps is manual …Read more

Edit: this has been working better for me. It hasn't dried me out as much. I am also using less and making sure my skin is more hydrated before applying this. I also think my skin now is less damaged than it was at the time of my original review, so perhaps better able to deal with the strength of this product. This go around, it is also eliminating blackheads that I thought I would have …Read more

I quite like this product. It feels like it makes a different on stubborn spots. However, it is rather strong, so it can irritate the skin. Also the product is very expensive, which is why I don't think that I would buy it again. Also I think that my bottle will last for quite some time, since I just use very little of it. The pump is not very practical, as other reviewers have already …Read more
