This innovative product is a first-to-market beta hydroxy acid (BHA) exfoliant. 4% salicylic acid is encapsulated in a time-released formula that unclogs pores and reduces wrinkles as it provides gentle yet effective exfoliation. Specially formulated for those concerned with signs of aging plus breakouts and enlarged pores, this liquid-to-foam exfoliant is meant for use as a weekly treatment, either with your regular exfoliant or in place of it.

The concentrated formula contains a very good mix of soothing plant extracts and antioxidants which work to help reduce signs of inflammation behind rosacea and the redness that accompanies acne. The texture is ideal for those with combination to oily skin—the two skin types most likely to also be struggling with breakouts, clogged pores, and enlarged pores, which this weekly treatment works to improve.

As with all Paula’s Choice products, RESIST Weekly Retexturizing Foaming Treatment with 4% BHA is fragrance-free and formulated without the irritating ingredients so often seen in products meant to reduce clogged pores and breakouts.

RESIST Weekly Retexturizing Foam is an innovative treatment that delivers smoother, younger-looking skin overnight. Specialized technology encapsulates anti-aging superstar salicylic acid for time-released delivery—so you get dramatic results without flaking or signs of irritation. The unique liquid-to-foam texture feels water-light yet is packed with soothing ingredients that reduce redness, calm inflammation, unclog pores, and reduce symptoms of rosacea.

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

  • Environmentally-friendly products that feature minimalist packaging that ensures product efficacy
  • 100% Customer Satisfaction Guarantee from our world-class Customer Service Team

Paula's Choice products and Paula's work is routinely praised by noted dermatologists and other professionals. New York-based dermatologist Dr. Debra Jaliman stated that "I have a lot of respect for Paula Begoun and the way she thoroughly researches her subject. Her recommendations about cosmetics and skin care are deservedly influential." Eminent Seattle-based dermatologist Dr. Brandith Irwin concurs: "She takes a complex subject and makes it easy to understand!"

    Biggest bang for the buck
    • This is the product I don't want to be without. It provided next-day results of smoother, softer and more refined texture of skin on my face, neck and kp arms. I haven't noticed much difference around my creased under-eye area, but as far as texture, I get compliments all the time.

    Severe reaction
    • I have been using Paula's Choice products for many years and been completely satisfied. I get many compliments on my skin. However, after using the retexturizing foam, I woke up the next morning in pain with my face beet red and badly swollen, especially my eyes and lips plus hives around my neck. It lasted days; very painful, then itchy and finally peeling. My doctor said it looked as though I'd been burned. It seems to have left my skin hyper-sensitive and now I'm very wary of what I can use.

    Really works.
    • I work for a very big makeup company. The place I work at has the best products available. And that place is Sephora. I really like this product. Hands down, I wish I could sell it.

    Amazing
    • My scabs from acne and pimples looked better after first use and even better after the second use. A little goes a long way.
