Really works!

I was kind of skeptical of this product but it really works! I put it on blemishes and in days I saw a big difference.

Just ok
Purchased

I had a sample of this and liked it, but after buying it and using it for weeks, it really hasn't made much of a difference to my rosacea and uneven skin. I had high hopes for this, and I am disappointed. I won't be buying it again.

BHA 9
Purchased

This is a good serum to treat imperfections, I get dark spots from where zits have been and this helps fade them. The only con to this is the bottle that it comes in, it is very easy to pump to much out. A little goes a long way with this stuff and it is pricey so they need to make the pump better.

Very Effective
SampledPurchased

I recently purchased the full size. It takes a very small amount to properly treat any type of blemish on your face. It also has an oil-like texture so it doesn't feel like it is over-drying your skin. Love that it is a cure all. Highly recommend.

Clears skin fast
Sampled

I had this sample for a couple of months and didn't really know what to use it for. Finally I looked it up and saw it could work as a spot treatment for a terrible breakout I had. I'm talking big, swollen, painful underground pimples. I applied it overnight, and they weren't gone the next day but the pain was and they had flattened out and gotten smaller. After a week, they were completely gone with no dark spots or scarring, and no dryness or irritation. SOLD. No product has made this kind of difference for my skin, and I will happily pay the price.

Too small to tell

I understand these are sample sizes of high end products, but 2 uses of a skincare product is not enough to notice any difference. Not even worth trying at this small a vile. Also not crazy about the texture - reminds me of olive oil

This product cleared the pimples on my face fast! The texture of this is almost like a serum or an oil, which I love because it doesn't dry out the skin. I really love this product!

Great on acne
Sampled

Though I don't typically get acne, whenever I get a pimple, it seems to last forever. I started using this when it came in my Birchbox as a "spot" fix and left it on overnight. It's a complete miracle worker. By morning, my pimple is either gone completely or reduced dramatically. LOVE this product!

Must Have*
Sampled

I already have deemed Paula's Choice as one of my absolute favorite skin care brands, so when I got this I was super excited. I used it as a spot treatment for my acne scars and marks on my face. I felt that it really helped in breaking them down some and helping them to fade.. Since it is a sample size I wasn't able to test for more than about 2 weeks but I feel confident that if I had a full size of this product it would significantly help with fading marks and other blemishes!
