Better than most!
Purchased

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.

Love this!!

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!

Works on Milia
SampledPurchased

I had bought this after sampling it awhile back for cystic like pimples that come up every once in awhile. A little goes a looong way with this stuff, so I had had a little tube of it for almost 2 years when I had a milia come up under my eye, I had never had one before and was about to head to my derm to have it removed! And then I figured I would try this; really not thinking it would work. BUT wow after using it twice the spot was gone.

I found an off-label use for this

So I originally got this in hopes it would help with stubborn imperfections as advertised. No luck there. But I discovered it works GREAT for keeping ingrown hairs on my neck/chin at bay. That's what I have used it for for a couple years now. And I will also say that even though this product didn't work as advertised for me, I regularly use other Paula's Choice BHA products that definitely make a positive difference in my complexion.

Always have it in my medicine cabinet
SampledPurchased

Paula's Choice is one of those products that I keep stored in my medicine cabinet for acne surprises or tired eyes. It clears up blemishes overnight (usually) and it reduces bags under my eyes and fine lines I'm getting near my eyes.
It never leaves my skin oily or tight. It seems to cover all skin issues (acne, lines, bags, wrinkles, etc) so I highly recommend this catch all product!

Really works
Purchased

Being pregnant my skin is at a whole new level of messed up! I've been struggling with my regular products that usually keep things under control so I thought it was time to pull out the big guns and I ordered this pricy number. I'm so glad I did because in two days it has done what nothing else has had the ability to do.
It doesn't really have a smell but is a serum so it takes a bit before it actually obsorbs into the skin meanwhile it can be a little oily. I used it all over my face for two nights and my face is almost entirely cleared. I'll be buying more for sure! Must have in your Arsenal for sure!!!

I had so many stubborn bumps that I rely on this product for. After to nights of wearing the product, the bumps are gone and my skin is still moisturized. Adding this to my Paula routine!

It works!

I was a little Leary that anything would get rid of my ugly acne scars. It took about a week or less but it did work and now I won't be without it! Only need a little product so it should be long lasting!

I wish I didn't buy this
Purchased

Totally full disclosure - I should have read this description better because this is tiny. So when I got it I was surprised by the size so for $42 for this tiny little thing I really wanted it to be a bomb. And it's not terrible but I really don't see it doing much of anything. Save your money.
