Great Spot Treatment
Sampled

I don't think this product does everything that it claimed on the packaging. But if you are looking for an excellent spot treatment for an existing pimple, this is your guy! I was blown away at how quickly it reduced the swelling of pimples. It seemed to help with the scaring if I did pick at the pimple and brings the total time needed to heal a pimple down from about 3 days to 1/2 a day. I'm super impressed!

Works Well For Me
Sampled

I got the small sample and it lasted forever as a spot treatment because a little goes a long way. As I've entered my mid-20s my cheeks seem to be generally bumpy and red all the time. Acne washes didn't work, but this calmed it over overnight and cleared it up pretty significantly after 2 days. Have also used it as a spot treatment on single blemishes with the same results. Only negative was that the first few uses it made my skin a bit itchy but then I guess my skin just adjusted. Worth it for how well it worked for me.

Good
Sampled

This product seemed to work well, although it wasn't amazing or anything. Not currently using any products with salicylic acid, so I might keep this in my routine.

Paula's Choice RESIST BHA 9 for Stubborn Imperfections
Sampled

I was going through a rough break out I wasn't used at the time I received this sample and I tried it out on some especially bad spots and it worked pretty well! It was not something I could use everyday, it did dry my skin out a little, but it was good to use initially to stop blemishes from getting worse.

Good stuff
Sampled

Really loved this product. I know it isn't technically for this, but I used it on the age spots on misc. parts of my 76 year old body. They faded and haven't come back. No irritation. Will buy when I run out of my current treatment.

No difference
Sampled

I don't know if it is the product or that the sample provides too few uses to see a difference, but I did not see or feel any difference in my skin after using this.

Smallest Sample ever
Sampled

Ok product, not to happy to get, could not try because the sample was so tiny. Wish it was a bigger sample.

Just in Time!
Sampled

This sample came at just the right time! I rarely break out, but that week happened to have 2 stubborn bumps on my chin. I put this on one night after my skincare routine, and the next morning they were almost gone! Completely smooth! However, I messed it up by picking at them, so they swelled up again. I did the same thing the next night and this time it knocked them out for good! Definitely like to have this in my kit for the next break out!
