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.

Brand Overview

Paula's Choice Skincare At-A-Glance

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.

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.

The formulas contain only ingredients that have substantiated, published research showing they are beneficial and effective. 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. The line is also 100% fragrance-free.

Disclosure: Paula Begoun is the 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.

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.
