Paula's choice bha 9 initial review

Started 1347573952.723 in Beauty Banter | Last reply 1349118367.39 by Zcat
I got my bha 9 today and applied it to a painful bump I have on my forehead. It is almost two hours later and the pain is gone, the redness is gone and the swelling is reduced by more than half. I cannot believe his miraculous this stuff is. Usually when I get a breakout it takes two weeks or more to go away and two hours later and it's almost gone! This is her most expensive product and it is .3 ounces but remember it is a spot treatment so you only use a tiny bit. For me it is worth it if it makes blemishes disappear.

Mine has shipped but hasn't arrived yet. I hope it works as well for me.

I am still waiting to hear that mine has shipped. They must have a ton of orders as it NEVER takes this long for something to ship. Usually I would have had it by now, even!

Thanks for the review...I was wondering about it.

Sound great...thanks for the review! I've been wanting to read reviews on this product. I did order it and I'm just waiting for it to be delivered.

I never had good luck with Paula's original BHA. It left me with little bumps under the skin. Not sure, but I think that her products contain a lot of 'cones, and that is why I can't use them.

Has anyone else had that problem? Do you think this new product is really different?

I know her 2% BHA liquid does not contain cones and I pretty sure the gel and lotion do not either so that must not be the source of your little white bumps.

That's good to know. Maybe I should give it another try. Think I will wait for more reviews since the new product is rather expensive.

oh wait, I just meant that the cones you thought that were in the product must not be the source of your white bumps, not that her product itself must not be causing the bumps! Sorry for the confusion. Which one (gel, lotion or liquid) did you try before? If you do decide to try it again and have oily skin and, say, used the lotion, perhaps try the liquid instead. It is possible the forumula you used had something in it that your skin didn't like.

Well, I have been using it for almost a week now, and I haven't noticed any improvement in my little bumps or stubborn blackheads. I will continue to use it until it is gone, so maybe I will see improvement eventually, but needless to say I am disappointed so far in the lack of improvement.

Almost 2 weeks now, and there are fewer blackheads on my nose. Smile

I have one of her serums that I don't use anymore becuase of the white bumps it created. I was not pleased to say the least. I guess they are milia because they never went away. They are going away now with the isomers peel, thank goodness for that recommendation!

I love the BHA9 - my millia have been with me for years and they look smaller after a week of use! I already ordered the second one so I won't be without it. I use it one my whole face and it really does look better!

not sure why my response got poofed but I did get samples and have used it 5 or 6 times, haven't really noticed anything yet, my problem is with the advertising, this is what it advertises, and IMO, nothing works on the first use, the video if you watch says after a few uses.
