Resist Triple-Action Dark Spot Eraser 2% BHA Gel is a unique treatment for those struggling with discolorations and breakouts. 2% hydroquinone lightens brown spots from sun damage or melasma while 2% salicylic acid exfoliates to reduce breakouts (including blackheads).

This anti-aging lightener restores an even skin tone and helps reduce enlarged pores. The silky, breathable gel texture is ideal for normal to oily skin but can be used by all skin types. The formula glides on easily and absorbs without feeling sticky or greasy. Special packaging keeps key sensitive ingredients stable and prevents product discoloration. This product is 100% fragrance- and colorant-free.

Pros:
  • Excellent option for those struggling with discolorations + breakouts.
  • 2% hydroquinone lightens brown spots from sun damage or melasma.
  • 2% salicylic acid (BHA) exfoliates to reduce breakouts (and blackheads).
  • Silky gel texture ideal for normal to oily skin.
Cons:
  • None.

2% Hydroquinone with a 2% concentration of salicylic acid at a pH of 3.6 works to effectively lighten sun- or hormone-induced brown skin discolorations (including freckles, brown or "age" spots, and melasma).

Disclosure: Paula Begoun is creator of Beautypedia and founder of Paula's Choice Skincare products. Reviewing thousands of skincare and makeup products over the past 30 years, both on this site and in her best-selling books, Paula's mission has always been to help consumers find the best products possible for their skin. The Beautypedia Team proudly and unequivocally maintains this commitment. In addition, The Beautypedia Team reviews all products using the same rating standards and criteria, whether it is a Paula's Choice product or another brand.

Paula's Choice Skincare was established in 1995 when best-selling beauty author and consumer advocate Paula Begoun (known as The Cosmetics Cop) decided to develop her own products. Like most of us, she was fed up with products that overpromised results, cost a lot of money, and failed to deliver—or made matters worse!

As a natural evolution of Paula's personal mission to help consumers find the best products for their skin, the line has grown into an extensive range of skincare and makeup products that are formulated to meet the needs of almost every skin type and skin concern imaginable. From acne to wrinkles, oily skin, rosacea, large pores, eczema, redness, sagging, dry skin, and on and on, Paula's Choice offers a solution.

Paula's Choice Skincare stands apart from other cosmetics brands. The formulas contain only ingredients that have substantiated, published research showing they are beneficial and effective—so you get visible results. Stable packaging is another feature of the brand, using innovative, opaque, and air-tight or air-restrictive components that keep antioxidants and other light- and air-sensitive ingredients from breaking down (unlike jar packaging, which compromises what might otherwise be an effective formula). The line is also 100% fragrance-free, which is best for all skin types, especially for those with sensitive skin or rosacea.

From cleansers to broad-spectrum sunscreens to anti-aging serums to specialized treatments, Paula's Choice Skincare has you covered from head to toe with innovative, state-of-the-art products. The brand also offers professional-quality makeup products including concealer, foundation, eyeshadow, lipstick, and more. (Paula started out as a makeup artist so she definitely knows her way around a face!)

Paula's Choice Skincare does not test on animals and also takes an environmentally friendly approach by featuring minimalist, recyclable packaging. Another plus—the Customer Service team is among the best in the industry, offering a "100% satisfaction or your money back" guarantee.

Why are all Paula's Choice Skincare products rated highly? The Paula's Choice Skincare Team would not launch a product unless it was worthy of a high rating from The Beautypedia Team. Paula and The Beautypedia Team were researching and reviewing products long before Paula's Choice Skincare ever existed and consumers were constantly requesting a skincare brand that met all of Beautypedia's criteria. As a result, The Paula's Choice Skincare Team was created and uses the same research and criteria to formulate Paula's Choice products as The Beautypedia Team uses to review products.

    Not as I had hoped...
    • I've been using this product for several months now and though I don't think my dark spots have increased, they haven't lightened up much. I spoke with a Paula's Choice representative to decipher which of the 2 dark spot erasers would be best for my skin type & this is what was recommended. I'm also not a fan of the watery consistency or packaging. I get way too much product on my fingertip & the screw on cap is messy & inconvenient. I'm going to try another brand. I'm quite disappointed.

    Holy Grail for me
    • I love this stuff. I use it everyday morning and evening. You actually get two for one with this product. The hydroquinone lighting product keeps sun spots at bay, and the BHA exfoliates your skin. A great product for normal to oily combination skin. In order: clean, tone, use this product, serum, sunscreen. Start young and your skin like mine will look early 40s and I am 54. I wish they had Paula's Choice products when I was in my 20s and I bet my skin would look even better.
