Well, I'm not Tim, but I have used PC BHA for many years with great results. Just spread a dime-sized amount all over your skin either in the morning or at night (you can use your AHA in the morning or at night when you don't use the BHA). You can put other topicals on top of this--like BP, makeup (not in your case), etc.

Hi Jim.

Here's my rundown of the different PC BHAs. I have combo/oily acne-prone skin.

1% BHA solution:
~ Very light lotion that moisturizes just enough, for me, and absorbs quickly to a nice matte finish.
~ I use it every day, on my whole face.

2% BHA liquid solution:
~ A liquid, toner-like formula.
~ It can take quite a while to absorb into the skin. It kind of sits on the surface for about 10 minutes, so some people don't like to deal with this "film". I use it only at night, however, so this absorbtion time doesn't bother me. I use it every night after cleansing my face.
~ This gave me greater results than any other product I've tried for my face! I noticed major clearing in a matter of days!

2% BHA lotion:
~ Some people prefer this because it absorbs faster than the liquid solution.
~ It has a slightly thicker consistency than the 1% solution (lotion). It also contains more moisturizing ingredients.
~ For some people (like me), this has the potential to be pore clogging. This is why I stuck to the liquid.

Also, remember that you can request free samples of all of these from the company! They send packets that last for at least a week, which is plenty of time to find out if the products work for you! Like I said, I saw MAJOR results from the 2% solution in a matter of days!! I've been using PC BHAs for over a year now. Good luck!
