Really bummed!


I was so excited to purchase this due to the 5 star reviews and I also purchased this at full price and I hate it. Use it before bed? But my face is all sticky so it just rubs off on the pillowcase?? I use very little and I still hate the feel of it. I would put up with that if it actually worked but I've seen no positive change/result from this product. I'm sad and out $42.00!

I can't believe, but it works


Nothing ever worked over night, but this one. It makes pimple to stop developing at the very moment you first notice it and apply this treatment. I do not know how it works with fully riped, deep pimples, because I catch my pretty quick, which certainly helps.

I can hardly find anything that works on my skin. So usually for anything with even a hint of effectiveness without to much irritation I'll give it a five-star. I would give this product a 10 it is an option! Really is an all-in-one product. Helps keep my breakouts at bay, improve the skin texture and helps with discoloration and pore issues. Haven't seen many results for wrinkles though. Still very happy about it.

Finally Skincare that WORKS!


Every product by Paula's Choice does exactly what it claims. Her product line is effective and has something for every skincare concern.BHA 9 is great as an all over treatment to minimize pores, reduce redness and past blemish marks, exfoliate effectively without hurting skin and making skin GLOW. or you can use it as a spot treatment for pimples and other imperfections. I use this allover my face 2 to 3 times a week right before bed, its the last skincare product i apply. I wake with glowing smooth even toned skin.
