Additional Information

Why is it different?
Our unique blend of alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs) + beta-hydroxy acid (BHA) efficiently exfoliates away the layers of visible sun damage. This powerful formula is efficient enough to use once a week, but gentle enough to apply as often as you want.

What does it do?
By combining glycolic, lactic, malic, and tartaric acids' (AHAs) unique skin refining and renewing properties, you’ll see dramatically renewed skin tone after one application. Peptides and ceramides reinforce what makes skin naturally resilient helping chamomile, grape seed extract, green tea and other antioxidants protect against further environmental damage. Allantoin, oat extract and licorice soothe skin after treatment.
Collapse
How to use
Apply once or twice daily after desired cleansing and/or toning. Dispense one pump and smooth over face including the eye area (avoid lash line and eyelids). Do not rinse. For daytime, follow with a broad-spectrum sunscreen rated SPF 30 or greater.

    This product does an excellent job at creating a healthy glow and decreasing pigmentation spots where applied. My skin is smooth, hydrated, and acne spots are lighter after two weeks.

      As described, my skin is definitely dramatically smoother! I never want to be without this product! It's has helped the flakiness of my dry skin, and I swear my fine lines have lessened in appearance. Totally in love with what this has done for me < 3

        I've been waiting for Paula to develop a multi-acid treatment and so glad it is here. I've used this for a couple of weeks now and absolutely love it! It is the one product that has started to lighten my sun damaged (very fair) skin. I have lots of freckles and discoloration on my cheeks where I have noticed the most significant lightening. THANK YOU!

          I am so happy I tried this! I have never had a product refine my pores like this one. My make up goes on more smoothly than it ever has. I love Paula's Choice products and this one does not disappoint!

          What's the difference between this and the old Resist weekly resurface treatment 10% AHA? Thank you.
