Some imperfections are endearing (think: Lauren Hutton's famous smile), but there are certain flaws we’d prefer to keep under wraps. Lucky for us, Paula’s Choice RESIST BHA 9 for Stubborn Imperfections tackles acne scars, rosacea, wrinkles, blemishes, and so much more.
As someone who struggles with breakouts I was excited to see what this would do, but I can't say too much due to the small sample size. I have breakouts on different areas that are all a little different. I was really only able to treat one area at a time, and couldn't use it long enough to see a lasting result. I had one bad zit on my chin that seemed to reduce in size after one night, but that is all the result I saw. Overall I can't determine if it would be worth the high price, so I won;t commit to buying.3
I used the sample in areas where I am prone to oiliness & acne. The consistency was kind of oily but figured with the salicylic acid that it would be fine. However less than 2 days later I had blooming pimples on my chin & nose. Prior to using it my skin was clear so I was not a happy camper. Perhaps if the sample was bigger I'd give it a 2nd chance in different areas. Think I will just stick with my current product, especially for the price.1
i like the idea of this stuff but i think the sample size is to small to see how well it will work.5
this sample product was tiny there was no way for me to tell if it was effective. the only thing i know is although it was oily it didn't break me out and it didn't have a strong smell3
I put it on my eyes for wrinkle damage. But I guess I will have to wait to know if its effective.4
II already use Paula's Choice 1% BHA as part of my daily routine. I'm so excited Birchbox is carrying this brand now! I don't get many breakouts but I have tried the spot treatment on my blackheads. It definitely shrinks pores and is very effective in a short amount of time. Since the 1%BHA is keeping my skin lookig pretty good, I don't think I will be needing the spot treatment.5
I was very curious to try this unscented and oily serum, and was disappointed that I don't really feel that it made a difference in my skin. Maybe just a few tries is not enough for it to be effective?2
How can I tell if this product can correct problems when the sample is so tiny??? I think I might have liked it, but the price is too high to take the gamble on a full size purchase.3
I think this product could be good, but the sample was so small it's hard to get a good read on it. Works for what I had at least.4
Holy cow, this stuff is AMAZING! I get stubborn blackheads that just won't quit and develop into larger blemishes if I'm not careful. After I received the sample in my monthly box and tried it a few nights in a row, I simply HAD to buy it because it does what it says it'll do - it has diminished red marks from old breakouts and blasts through blemishes and blackheads like nobody's business. It feels a little tingly after application and takes quite a while to dry (I'm sure why they suggest using only at night), but wow does it work. Woke up the first morning after using it and my blemishes were half the size of what they were the night before, if not smaller. Cleared up within 3 days. Red marks from old breakouts lightened. And amazingly, did not irritate my extremely sensitive and dermatitis-prone skin. Definitely my new zit blaster of choice!5
