What does it do?

How to use
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. Experiment to see which method works best for your skin concerns. May be applied over larger areas if needed. Reduce frequency of usage if irritation or flaking occurs.

Amazing blackhead remover

By Jane

About Me Beauty Conscious

Verified Reviewer

Pros

  • Softens Skin

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Enlarged Pores
    • Removing blackheads
    • Uneven Skin Tone

    I recently ordered this product after noticing some bumps along my cheeks, which were blackheads. I also have lots of blackheads on my nose, chin and forehead. On my forehead
    the blackheads appear to be quite stubborn because the 2% BHA doesn't seem to get rid of them. I have been using the BHA 9% for the past 3 weeks and I can say that nearly all of my blackheads on my cheeks are gone and if they haven't completely gone they are now very small, and I'm sure they would be able to be extracted if I went to a beautician. The blackheads on my nose, chin and forehead have also reduced significantly and I have noticed that some of the blackheads on my forehead are coming out, but I think I will need to keep using this product to get better results.

    I have been using this product every second night, and some times I will use it every night. I cut back to every second night if I think my skin is becoming too dry. For anyone that has battled with blackheads I would encourage them to try this product as I have found it amazing. My skins feels so soft and my skin tone looks more even. I can tell that the areas where my skin tone doesn't look great is where there is a blocked pore, so once these pores are no longer filled with a blackhead, then my skin tone will be much more even. I also use this product in combination with a retinol cream each night. I am so happy I have found this product and I am excited each night to use it so my skin continues to improve. I will definitely be ordering a second bottle!. I have not had any issues with the pump because I am needing a few pumps of the product each night to put on my face and neck. I can see how others may waste the product if they are only using it for one spot, but this has not been an issue for me. Once the BHA has extracted the blackheads on my face and neck I will use the 2% BHA for maintenance.

    Completely ineffective

    from Australia

    Pros

      Cons

      • Not Effective

      Best Uses

        I was persuaded to buy this by the reviews which said this removes blackheads and acne. Based on the ingredients, it sounds like it should work. But unfortunately for my problematic skin, this did absolutely nothing, whether used as part of a minimalist or maximalist regime. It didn't do anything bad to my skin, but it didn't do anything good for it either. I tried it for the entire trial period before sending it back.

        Holy grail!

        Pros

          Cons

            Best Uses

            • Daily Use
            • Enlarged Pores
            • Pimples
            • Redness/ Blotchiness

            This is better than the Mario Badescu drying Lotion by far! It works quicker at minimumising the very begining of a pimple without leave red mark. I never get white heads anymore because this kills everything before they begin. It goes O n clear aswell, unless drying Lotion leaves white stuff on you. This miricle product also does what it says reduces enlarged pores but I don't really have problems with that so I just use it on upcoming red bumps.

              This product is amazing. My skin, particularly forehead and nose area, have never been clearer. The little white bumps have totally disappeared from my forehead. Its very effective used in conjunction with the Clinical 1% Retinol Treatment.

              Comments about Resist BHA 9 Treatment - 8.4 ml:

              Ive been using the BHA 9 for about 3 weeks on top of my Paula's choice skin care routine and I just love it. If I have a red spot or a little pimple almost garunteed that spot or pimple is gone within a day, sometimes less.

              The only negative is that it is in a pump tube so it's a bit of a race to pump it into my finger then apply it before it runs down my fingers.
              But it's honestly worth it.

              I tend to use half a pump and dot on the areas of concern then once they are good and dabbed in I fun into the rest of my face.

              Service and delivery comments:

              Delivery was about 4 days. The packaging was neat and tapped securely. I also like that it's in a Paula's choice branded box rather than a plain postage box.

              Customer service was great as always

              I have insane skin - breakouts yet eczema, with dry and generally irritable skin. This worked on my spots, but made the rest of my skin sting. So i will use very sparingly.

                Comments about Resist BHA 9 Treatment - 8.4 ml:

                I bought this to try and shift my sebaceous filaments on my nose after trying the 2% liquid and seeing a reduction in them but not clearing them entirely. This product is thicker, but still a liquid and it's quite hard to dispense the right amount. I need about 3/4 pump to cover my nose and chin.

                While it helps to keep my pores cleaner, it doesn't truly address the problem and I don't find it much more effective than the 2% liquid so I probably won't repurchase due to the price being extremely expensive

                I use it daily on my "problem areas". I've noticed that my pores are shrinking on my nose and chin. If I have a spot it helps reduce it within a couple of days...sometimes overnight.

                Comments about Resist BHA 9 Treatment - 8.4 ml:

                I really needed this product to work and it just did nothing. Nothing! I have black heads, large pores, tiny bump like pimples and I get large cystic like blemishes around PMS time. I put this on and no different. It didn't help decrease the size of the blemishes (large ones or small), the redness or the healing. I woke up night after night no different except for crazy dry skin in that area. Once exfoliated away- the issues were still there!!
                So annoying that this didn't work for me. And again I mean not in the slightest!! Just goes to show that even if something has great reviews and has ingredients that are supposed to work, sometimes they just aren't for you.
                I have nothing good at all to write about this. May as well have put nothing on my skin.
