Not my favorite

3

I had first tried the Paula's Choice 1% BHA gel to ease myself into an exfoliant. When I was finished with that bottle I tried this one. I think I prefer the 1% better as it sinks into my skin more quickly and isn't as heavy as this one. I enjoy the gel formula (no waste from cotton balls like the liquid version), but this 2% formula was a little too heavy and never quite "dried down" when I applied it. I noticed better results with the 1% gel.

Love, Love, Love!

I finally decided to buy this gel after letting it sit in my cart for weeks. I was afraid it was gonna be too strong for my sensitive skin, but boy was I wrong. This is so gentle on my skin that I use it every other night. I must say that this is the first product that has given me immediate results on the first day of using it. My pores look noticeably smaller and I can see a real difference in the texture of my skin. I would highly recommend to anyone dealing with acne or enlarge pores.

Too drying for my skin

4

No smell, easy to apply. However, I find the gel formula to be a little too drying for my skin. It also stings a bit upon application. I can't tell if it actually has made any difference in my skin, and I've been using it for a couple of years now. Want to try the lotion formula next.

Skin has improved with use. Pores are diminishing. Skin is soft and supple. Happy with this product!

A GODSEND!

5

This product is a DREAM for people who have issues with texture on their skin. AHAs are absolutely incredible and, to me, PC products are the absolute gold standard. The texture is super light so those with oily skin will really enjoy this especially!

excellent product overall yet texture is inelegant

5

This product is undoubtedly the most gentle, yet effective, BHA 2% product on the market. And I say this having tried several dermatologist-dispensed BHA products that irritated my skin or proved inadequate. This product will improve skin texture, pore size, and breakout frequency if used at least once a day. However, the texture is not ideal. It feels heavy and leaves a distinctly greasy feel on skin. Do not expect to be able to use this product during the day, particularly if you live in a humid or hot climate and wear sunscreen daily (which you must, whether or not using a daily exfoliant).

Great Product but heavy duty!

5

I really like this gel. It glides on smooth & clears/shrinks pores in a matter of days. I do not have sensitive skin, but this did create a bit of peeling. I've reduced the application to 1x per day. I also don't use with my AHA product at the same time. Definitely apply spf to face while using this for day time.

this stuff is magic

5

I've been dealing with on/off cystic acne as well as smaller pimples for the past year, and I assumed nothing would clear them up. I've been using this gel for about 2.5 weeks so far and my face looks amazing. I still have some stubborn dark spots that I hope will fade some more, but overall I'm so happy with what this has done to my skin. It's a bit sticky at first, like you would expect from a serum, so I apply after washing my face, give it about 5-10 mins to dry and de-stick, and then apply my regular moisturizer over it. Here's hoping this keeps working!

Love it for enlarged pores and oily skin

5

This is the first AHA product I've used with immediate results. I have started a routine with cleansing oil and cleansing powder and then I use this gel before applying moisturizer. It takes a little to dry but I do not mind that. It is not as sticky as some other similar products. It has not irritated my skin and I am glad I have found a product that works on my complicated skin (oily with dry patches, mature, enlarged pores).
