Pump is tricky, product is good
SampledPurchased

I received as a sample first, loved it, and promptly ordered it. Its a lightweight serum that dried out a few pimples overnight and also seemed to make my red splotch on my cheek less red. My only beef is that the pump is a little stiff and then when you do get it to pump, it doles out way too much of the product. I only need a little dab so I feel like I'm wasting some of this expensive product.

Almost...

Works well, but I use other products for these purposes that I like better, so it would be redundant for me.

Not Worth the $$
Purchased

I hate to be the negativity in a sea of positive reviews but this product didn't do anything for my skin. Super disappointed. I really thought you could be the one, BHA 9. The search for a blemish, skin tone fix continues.

Great for Shrinking Pimples
Purchased

I haven't seen too much of a change to the dark spots on my face caused by the sun but it shrinks giant monster pimples over night. I have also used it on milia and after a few nights it softened them up enough to extract them which if you have ever had milia you know they are hard to remove. The pump does dispense more product then I need but I put it to good use on other trouble spots like my chest or neck.

Good Product
Purchased

This product was pretty thick, but worked well with regular application. Unfortunately, I didn't have the discipline to apply it daily and it just sat in my makeup bag. I still would recommend it if it's an addition to your skincare routine!

Really works

I had pitched this product a few weeks ago and wasn't sure if it was working. I have rosacea and have never found any over the counter product that really calms skin. This does!

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.
