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.

Real pore saver

5

This has done wonders for my canyon sized pores on my nose. I had both immediate results and now even months on it's still getting better and better. Keep using it!!! I only use in the pm as slightly greasy but just use a thin layer and it's fine. I was in despair over my skin and Paula's products (I'm using the range exclusively) has saved my skin after years of embarrassment. Wish I knew sooner!!! More advertising in Australia needed!!!

Best product ever!

I put this treatment on before bed and noticed a huge difference in my skin in just one use. My pores are smaller and I do not see dead skin sitting on my face. I will forever use this product!

Amazing blackhead remover

5

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.

I love this product!

5

I use this product every other night, alternating with Retin A for sebaceous hyperplasia. It took a month before I noticed results and am thrilled. I initially purchased a sample and was happy with the results so I then purchased the pump bottle. I kept the glass sample vial and refill that when it runs low. For me, it is much easier to use, has a tight fitting lid and great for travel. I recently received a compliment on my skin, no longer bumpy!

Excellent for spot-treating! I found a trick for dispensing!

5

I ordered the trial size and was amazed at how it worked to reduce and almost eliminate pimples (large and small), sometimes overnight but usually within a couple of days. I used a Q-Tip to apply directly to the bump at night, and after giving it time to dry I could even use my prescription benzoyl peroxide / clindamyacin compound without irritation. I read the reviews about the leaky pump, but figured out a way to dispense it without a lot of waste: Get the trial size and save that little vial after it's all used. Take the regular sized tube, gently pump a few times into the small trial-sized vial, and use a Q-Tip / cotton swab to extract it. Yes, it's on the pricey side, but it's worth it - especially for spot treating, not overall coverage.

Holy grail!

5

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.

Almost Didn't Buy because of the Bad Reviews on Packaging!

5

I'm so glad I decided to deal w/ bad packaging if the reviews were true. I'm happy I did! I seem to be able to dispense a small amount easily (you just depress the pump with less force). I've seen reviews they start leaking? But PC guarantees the products for 6 months - they'll replace your leaking packaging. Mine is fine for now. I've only used once & noticed a difference. I've been using 4% bha and 10% aha & 1% retinal daily (I know, sounds crazy but I promise it's fine - my sensitive red headed girl skin is 100% ok with - it's the only thing that has helped unclog my pores). I used just the bha 9 last night and noticed a significant difference. Really hoping it will replace both my exfoliants & it looks like it might! Really excited.

Excellent - I can't live without this product

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.

Fix the pump/dispenser mechanism

5

I love this (as I commented in my previous review). However, too much comes out - you must press the pump fully down - this much is not needed (even to cover the entire face!). Thus, you will go through the entire container too fast making it an expensive buy. Despite how much I love it, I am thinking it may become unaffordable.

THIS IS A KEEPER

5

After reading the reviews on this product I decided to try it for the milia on my nose . After the first container they were markedly improved. They just go away! I still have a ways to go but am going to stick with it. This is the only thing I have every tried that made a difference. The results are not instant but if you stay with it you will see result in a couple of months.
