Paula's Choice BHA 9 Treatment (0.3 fl. oz.)

A multitasking, leave-on spot treatment that refines skin's texture.

Paula's Choice BHA 9 Treatment improves the look and feel of your complexion. The concentrated, targeted treatment delivers a 9% BHA formula in a controlled, sustained manner to help diminish white bumps, unclog pores, and refine rough skin while minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles without irritating your skin.

Key Ingredients:

  • Salicylic Acid: dissolves dull, dry and rough skin for a smoother complexion
  • Oat and Sea Whip Extracts: provide antioxidant benefits, soothe redness and sensitivity
  • Glycerin and Arginine: provide lightweight hydration and restore moisture barrier

Key Benefits:

  • Delivers controlled, sustained release of salicylic acid
  • Minimizes the appearance of enlarged pores
  • Diminishes the appearance of hard, white bumps
  • Ideal for all skin types

At night, apply as a leave-on spot treatment for stubborn imperfections. Dispense a very small amount of RESIST BHA 9 onto a clean fingertip, and massage a thin layer over affected areas. Suitable for use around the eyes, but avoid contact with eyelids and do not apply along the lower lashline. For best results, use after cleansing and toning, but it can also be used as the last step in your skincare routine. Experiment to see which method works best for your skin concerns. May be applied on its own or over a Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting exfoliant. May be applied over larger areas if needed. Reduce frequency of usage if irritation or flaking occurs.

Powerful

A powerful exfoliant, but too powerful for my sensitive skin!

AMAZING!!!!

To begin I was really hesitant about purchasing this product because of the price and fear that the high BHA % would irritate my skin. I am so glad that I went through and purchased it anyway. I have been using other Paula's Choice products and they are all amazing and have done huge wonders for my skin. However I still get the occasional acne here and there and wanted a spot treatment for those stubborn pimples. This product did not cause any burning or discomfort on my skin, that over time has become quite sensitive. I apply this product at night and look forward to waking up in the morning to see how drastically it brings down any stubborn pimples and they are for the most part dried and gone. I have noticed that 1-2 nights of use is sufficient for me. The following days I use my Paula's Choice Clinical 0.3 Retinol 2 Bakuchiol Treatment to help with skin resurfacing and fading any post acne hyperpigmentation. I have had moderate to severe acne starting from my teen years to adulthood (I am 24) and I just wish I would have invested in Paula's Choice products sooner and saved my time and money instead of wasting it on products that were more affordable but didn't do anything for my skin or worse caused further acne and irritation. I highly recommend this product and hope it does for you, what it has done for me.

Worth It but EXPENSIVE

Product works great, put it on at night and the pimples come to a head or are gone by morning,. However, it is expensive for the amount you get which is surprising for PC products as they are usually very cost effective.

It’s Useful, But I Prefer Patches

I do think that this has helped to spot treat, but I have found that acne patches do a better job of handling pimples without being so drying. The consistency is very liquify so it spreads very easily, causing a larger patch to become dry. Maybe my application technique isn’t right, but for the price I just don’t think I’ll be buying this product again.

This product works miracles

So far the best spot treatment I have tried so far. The inflamed spot usually reduces by morning.

Very Specifically Amazing

I have been using this for over a month now and I love this stuff. However, the way to use it and be successful is very specific. This essentially is a BHA spot treatment. This is not like that pink stuff from mario b. or whatever, which just dries the pimple out. This is going to act as a chemical exfoliant that goes into your pores and cleans out the gunk. This is NOT going to make your blackheads go away. But if you have a pimple, white head, or deep comodone this formula is amazing! I have hormonal acne and get acne on my chin around my time of the month and this is the only treatment that has worked without ruining my skin barrier. I also use tretinoin, and this product does a better job at getting my deep comodones to go away than that. Use a small dot over the pimple, let it dry and continue your skin care as normal.

It really works

I've been using the 2% BHA liquid exfoliant for sometime, which helps with my black/white heads and uneven skin texture. The BHA 9 treatment is a recent purchase for me and it has helped with some cystic/ hormonal acne that I have developed lately. I started using this as a spot treatment and it's already cleared some stubborn acne bumps that were bothering me for a long time. My skin is dry & sensitive but I've had no irritation to this treatment. Will be repurchasing and a little goes a long way.
