Meh. I suppose maybe I needed a higher strength BHA for my "clog-prone" skin (I've seen rave reviews of PC's 2% BHA Liquid - instead of lotion - for oilier skins) but ultimately didn't want to invest in any BHA product from PC because I have a couple of issues with the way they're formulated (I could be wrong about the liquid since I haven't tried that - but …Read more

I have very sensitive skin that reacts poorly to manual exfoliation - redness, bumps, and dry patches. I also have clogged pores on my nose and chin, so I went with the 1% BHA lotion instead of the AHA. I have been using this product every morning and evening for the past month along with the Skin Recovery line. It pumps out a nice amount - not too much, not too little. I use one pump for my …Read more

I really wish this stuff wasn't so pricey, because I feel like I have tried literally every salicylic acid product on the market, and nothing works as well as this one for my skin. It is the perfect combination of light moisturizer and BHA. When I use it regularly, my skin just does NOT break out, at all. I'm surprised because it works better than the higher BHA concentration products I …Read more

Huge fan of Paula and what she stands for in the make-up world! My skin is sensitive to chemicals and fragrances, is oily and prone to blackheads around my nose and t-zone areas, but also gets dry and flaky around the sides of my cheeks and jawline especially during winter time, so my hopes and expectations went up when I first purchased the 2% BH gel. After a few weeks, I noticed my nose area …Read more

I have mild rosacea, and the only thing I can do to exfoliate my awful, flaky skill is the oil cleansing method. I get good results, but it's such a hassle! I bought this hoping that it could replace OCM, and I think it might! After the first night on I was shocked to discover the flaky patch of skin of my forehead was almost entirely smooth! The next day it was gone! Holy crap! I did not …Read more

I interchange this and the 8% aha gel Paula sells. I use this one specifically when I break out or that time of the month. I really don't break out much anymore because of the retin a I've been using combine with Paula's products. This solution is pretty gentle but it definitely exfoliates and helps shrink the rare hormonal pimple I get. There's so much product in these …Read more

This product completely trashed my skin. I'd give it zero lippies if I could. Like the reviewer below, I took a chance on this because some people have had great results. Unlike the reviewer below, this product didn't work for me. Recently, I have suffered from quite a few reactions due to trying out new skincare products, some of which had broken me out. I posted on the skincare …Read more

I have been using this product religiously for about three years now. I hate the gel as it's sticky and the liquid is a waste - you'll lose it on a cotton ball and you can't really apply with your fingers. Lotion is the way to go and spread THIN. It will last a long time. About once a week I put on my chest and upper back for any blackheads that may start. Oddly, she's the …Read more

What a mixed bag of reviews this product gets, I admit to being a tad nervous that I would break out horribly due to some of the reviews, but other reviews are so favourable that I decided to take a chance on this lotion! Hope that it would work for me.

The pores on my nose were bothering me, they had been appearing larger and the general texture of my skin less smooth, I felt I …
