RESIST Daily Smoothing Treatment with 5% Alpha Hydroxy Acid is an advanced AHA exfoliant designed to significantly improve the appearance of sun-damaged, wrinkled skin. A pH-correct 5% concentration of glycolic acid (plus 0.5% salicylic acid) exfoliates for improved texture and tone while a blend of anti-aging ingredients helps your skin look and act younger than you thought possible. The benefits of this daily exfoliant go above and beyond what a traditional AHA product provides. It is suitable for all skin types and provides light hydration that helps enhance your skin’s radiance.
This innovative daily-use formula continually renews your skin's texture, evens skin tone, smoothes fine lines, and stimulates healthy collagen production via exfoliation and by delivering a potent blend of antioxidants that help fight free-radical damage.

Disclosure: In addition to reviewing thousands of cosmetic products from hundreds of brands over the past 30 years, Paula also has her own line of products called Paula's Choice. Paula and her team's goal is to help you find the best products possible for your skin whether they are from Paula's Choice or some other product line. Paula's commitment to this is so strong she is the only cosmetics company owner in the world that recommends products other than her own. Paula and the Paula's Choice Research Team formulate our products to meet or exceed the criteria we use to review products from every other brand on this site. We review all products the same way using the same research, objective comments, and praise no matter whose product it is.
Paula's Choice was created in 1995 in response to the many readers who asked Paula to develop her own products. Given Paula's unique overview of the cosmetics industry, 30+ years of research, and earnest desire to help people find the best products for their skin-care needs, creating her own products was a natural extension of her work. Paula's Choice range of products are designed to meet the needs and preferences of just about every skin type and concern imaginable using only proven ingredients substantiated by published research.
Paula's Choice products provide:
- State-of-the-art formulas based on reliable, published skin-care research

- 100% Customer Satisfaction Guarantee from our world-class Customer Service Team
