I love this stuff! I use this on pimples at night and by morning they are flat. I continue using for several days until all discoloration is gone. It really speeds up the healing process.

I love Paula's Choice AHA and BHA products, and after reading the reviews for this product, I thought I was going to get something amazing. Maybe it worked a little, but I didn't notice much difference on my stubborn spots and under the skin bumps.

Amazing!

I've struggled with cyctic hormonal acne for almost 10 years and have tried almost everything under the sun, including topical antibiotics. I wanted to try something that was strong, but wouldn't damage my skin or dry it out. I ordered a sample of this and it honestly is the best thing I have ever used! I use it to help fade post breakout pigmentation, on little bumps on my skin and also on live pimples and it just works so much better than anything else I've ever tried. It's pricey but totally worth it imo and i dont feel like its damaging my skin, even though its highly concentrated. I can't live without it now!

Did not reduce milia

I had some milia and other bumps and I didn't notice that this did anything at all. The serum feels oily, but glides over the skin smoothly. But was ineffective.

Imperfections Perfected

The best blemish serum I've ever used.

My experience could fairly be called The Troubles. I've tried the gamut of products, from Neutrogena to Erno Lazlo. This serum works on blemishes, blackheads, redness and freckles.

Not much of a difference for me
Sampled

Personally, I didn't notice much of a difference when using this product. I don't have severe acne by any means, but my face tends to breakout around those hormonal times of the month. I also spilled a bunch out of it (even though the tube was tiny), so that made me sad.

Better than most!

I've been using this nightly for a while now and it has definitely helped with my little white bumps around my chin that usually develop into bigger, painful acne. I did try it on the milia under my eyes but my skin got too dried out!
I've been trying so many different acne products over the years and it was nice to finally use something that made a difference.

Absolutely love this product! It helps with the little white bumps I get that are hard to get rid of. It has also faded acne marks on my face and blackheads are a thing of the past now with this! Highly recommend!
