not sure if it is working
Sampled

This product feels fine on my skin but I can't tell if it is doing anything. I've used it 5 times so far and my acne does feel reduced but I cannot tell if that is just natural healing time or if the product made a difference.

BHA9 Serum
Sampled

This serum is very lightweight and applies easily. I must echo other reviewers that the sample size was to small to determine the product's effectiveness. I have been happy with other Paula's Choice products that I have used in the past, so I will be purchasing the full size product to try out.

Little sample, big results
Sampled

I almost missed this sample because I thought it was perfume; I'm so glad I looked deeper. It's a small sample but a little covers your entire face. I love the texture, and while I can't really see much difference (after four nights of use), my skin feels much cleaner all day.

I like the concentration
Sampled

I like the idea that it's concentrated enough that a little bit goes a long way. Dotted some on my blemishes and got good results.

Good Spot Treatment
Sampled

I was really excited when I got this product. It worked very well as a spot treatment and didn't dry out my skin like others do. I did not notice a difference in my pore size, but my complexion did look better overall after using it for a few days. It also helped with the appearance of acne scars.

Didn't see a difference

I didn't see a difference using this product at all. Kinda disappointed because I was excited about it. Sigh

I think it worked?
Sampled

Had a bad, hormonal breakout around the time I got my september birch box and this stuff seemed to help keep it under control. The sample size was very small, which is understandable for how much this product costs for the full sized (still small) product. I was only able to use the sample maybe 3 times, so I don't know what my breakouts would have looked like had I had longer to use this product. My skin got slightly better, definitely not worse, so I would say this stuff obviously works.

Didn't work
Sampled

I have somewhat acne prone skin so granted I use a stronger face medication but this stuff didn't really do anything for me. In fact I think it was kind of clogging my pores. It might work better for someone who already has pretty good skin
