This liquid-to-foam exfoliant contains 4% salicylic acid (BHA) encapsulated in a time-release formula to provide gentle yet effective exfoliation. The texture is ideal for those with combination to oily skin.

This concentrated product helps reduce the signs of aging plus breakouts and can help minimize enlarged pores by unclogging them and can stimulate collagen production for firmer skin!

Even more to love: The formula contains a beneficial mix of soothing plant extracts and antioxidants, which help reduce the signs of inflammation behind rosacea and the redness that accompanies acne.

This is meant for use as a weekly treatment, either with your regular exfoliant or in place of it. 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. It's also formulated within the ideal pH range salicylic acid needs to be effective.

Pros:
  • Specialized treatment for those struggling with wrinkles and breakouts at the same time.
  • Soothing agents calm redness.
  • Helps reduce pore size.
  • Liquid-to-foam texture ideal for combination to oily skin.
Cons:
  • None.

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.

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.

    Excellent Product!
    • This is my new BFF. I alternate this 4% foam in pm (too sticky for day) with Resist 2% every other night (note: layering on top of 2% irritated my skin). After a month of use, no reduction in pore size but beautiful clear pores and noticeable decrease in oil production not achieved with Resist 2% alone. Very strong fragrance during application-quickly dissipates to an awful odor-but worth it. The smell didn't transfer to pillowcases. I continue the 2% in the am. No more extractions!

    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.
