Review on "RESIST" BHA 9! =D

Hi Everyone!

Welcome to February! The weather is starting to get warmer and the days longer in southern CA, but the wind and evenings are still pretty chilly. =P

Today I am going to review on "RESIST" BHA 9
This product comes in 2 sizes. The deluxe sample size costs $3.50 and contains 0.03 fluid oz or 0.83mL of product. The regular size costs $37 and contains 0.3 fluid oz or 8.4 mL of product. You can find this on Paula's Choice here.
It is supposed to diminish facial bumps, spots, redness, wrinkles, shrink pores, and balance skin oils. It is color and fragrance free and has had no animal testing done on it.
Directions: Apply a pea-sized amount daily, only at night, over stubborn imperfections as a leave-on spot treatment. Use as the last step in your nightly skincare routine.
Caution: Do not use if you are allergic to aspirin, avoid contact with eyes, and use sunscreen to protect your skin.

What do I think of this product?
So, I actually saw Gossmakeupartist review this product last year in October and I decided to get it. And I must say, I love this product! I bought the deluxe sample size to save money and, of course, be safe in case my skin reacted badly or it did nothing for me.
My main purpose for buying this product was to unclog and shrink my pores. Because I have big pores. Q_Q. Anyway, the consistency of the product is clear and a little thick and slippery. This product does not redden or irritate my skin.
I followed directions and used it only at night as the last step in my nightly skincare routine. I applied it to my nose and cheek areas with large pores. And when I woke up in the morning, I saw the most significant pore shrinking results I have ever seen! =D (works even better the second day as well!) My pores were much smaller than they used to be and I could tell that each pore was less dark or grey which means that they were less clogged. And this was only after 1 use! It obviously won't make my pores disappear but they are much smaller and less visible. It also made my oily skin areas less oily which is a plus!
I only use this 1 or 2 times a week and 4 times in a month at most because that is enough for the results I want. Also, I don't like using strong skincare products often. This is an amazing product for emergencies. One time I was messing with my clogged pores and as a result made them really red, swollen, and HUGE! D=, and I was freaking out because I didn't want to look like this the next day. So I applied this product and the next day, my pores were not inflamed, not swollen, and much smaller!
A little goes a long way and I just need the smallest amount to apply and spread out on my problem areas. It has been 3 months and I still have half of the deluxe sample left. I don't need to use it often and I don't need to use a lot of it. I would definitely repurchase this product but I will still go for the deluxe sample size because that is all I really need.
As for spots, redness, and wrinkles, I did not use this product for those because I only bought the sample size and my biggest problem is my pores. I do not have a lot of wrinkles because I am a young person and my redness is helped by my moisturizer.

Do I recommend this product?
If you are looking for a product to significantly reduce pore size and help unclog pores I definitely recommend this product! If you are going to purchase this product, I do recommend that you get the sample size because it is always better to play safe and save money! XD
If you are looking for for a treatment for wrinkles, spots, and redness, I trust Gossmakeupartist's review and I think this product is worth a shot to treat those problems!

So I hope you enjoyed this review. If you have any questions or comments, feel free to write in the comment box below! =) Thank you for reading and we shall speak soon!
