      Comments about Paula's Choice RESIST BHA 9 for Stubborn Imperfections, .3 fl oz:

      My skin is very odd. I have great, almost flawless skin for most of the time throughout the months and years, with some cystic pimples in my jawline around my period. Birth control has helped with these, along with retin A from my doctor (which I only use when a problem arises). Every few years, its like everything that gets clogged in my pores over the years decides to come out at once and I end up have hundreds of little tiny flesh colored bumps all over, mostly on my cheeks and chin where the pores are a little larger. Previously, this happened and my only saving grace was apricot scrub and an oil free moisturizer. A few years later, AGAIN. My regime had stopped working. My derm gave me all the typical medication and nothing worked. After months of these bumps and no improvement, my doc told me to try Benzoyl Peroxide (BP)... magically within days, the bumps were "dissolved". I continued to use the BP daily and my skin was amazing, then AGAIN... the bumps came back with a vengeance. I tried everything under the sun, then I came across Paulas Choice and decided that i had nothing to lose, other than $40 and some bumps. With in a few days there was a noticeable difference, and NO irritation (BP is very harsh). Its been 6 weeks and almost all of the bumps are gone and staying gone! Plus all of the scars from when I picked at the bumps are fading more and more everyday. It really says something when I wake up in the morning and can look in the mirror without crying PLUS actually SEE a difference from when I went to bed.

      You only need to use a little and it does feel a bit greasy at first, but it soaks in over night and feels wonderful. I also workout a lot and get rough callused hands from pull-ups, this stuff does the trick for my rough hands too!

      Fantastic on blackheads; harsh elsewhere

      Comments about Paula's Choice RESIST BHA 9 for Stubborn Imperfections, .3 fl oz:

      Wonderful product--but just for my nose area and that's it! Tried it elsewhere (to address some of those other "9" trouble spots you can use this product for), and it was just too harsh. Areas of my face with fine lines, redness and only slightly clogged pores just couldn't handle the product, and I felt itchy and chapped within days. I had to slather on serum and moisturizer to repair the irritation.

      BUT--I couldn't be happier with how this product has helped reduce the quantity and appearance of little blackheads on my nose. I wear a lot of makeup and have combo skin, which is probably why I've got the blackheads in the first place. But overnight, the product literally reverses and bores through the clogging that occurs during the day. So I love, love, love the product for that reason. Oh--and it also helps reduce/almost eliminate my need for a blackhead removal tool several times a week.

                This product has reduced the size of my sebaceous cysts. I use it daily at night. However, when you pump the product, it's difficult to control and too much comes out. There is lots of waste. Needs to be in a tube,
                or needs a better design.

                  This product helped eliminate my blackheads in about two months. I continue to use this to keep my skin under control. My skincare regimen, as far as blackheads go, consists of using Paula's Choice Skin Balancing 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant during the day on any areas of concern following up with an SPF moisturizer. At night, I apply this product and follow up with a night moisturizer. I would recommend that your moisturizers (that you are applying over this product) are light and not heavy. I have read suggestions elsewhere to not even use a moisturizer, but I find that a necessary part of any skincare routine, especially when using an exfoliant.

                    The only product that reduces the size of my cysts from blocked oil ducts. They do seem to get larger if I don't use it, in fact, must use it a.m. and p.m. But NOTHING else anywhere does even that. Haven't seen any changes in pore size.

                    The pump is very tight so it's hard to disperse a small amount. Should be put in a tube instead.
