Additional Information

Why is it different?

RESIST Skin Revealing Body Lotion 10% AHA, a creamy yet lightweight leave-on AHA exfoliant, is a completely non-abrasive, gentle way to shed built-up layers of dead skin, resulting in unbelievably smooth, younger-looking skin from the neck down. It beautifully hydrates skin and softens dryness anywhere on the body.

This exfoliant has a pH range of 3.5-3.9.

What does it do?
The creamy, antioxidant-rich formula leaves skin feeling thoroughly hydrated and moisturized, and goes beyond to gently exfoliate and visibly improve rough skin with a 10% concentration of glycolic acid. Daily use helps to visibly improve uneven skin tone and soften the appearance of hard, clogged, red bumps on the arms and legs. Is a customer favorite even for those with skin prone to keratosis pilaris.

How to use
Apply a small amount to clean skin. May be used daily for all-over smoothing, or applied as a spot treatment where needed. Apply this treatment first when using with an additional moisturizer. For daytime, follow with a broad-spectrum sunscreen rated SPF 30 or greater. Do not apply to just-shaved skin.

Sun Protection Advice When Using Any AHA Exfoliant: RESIST Skin Revealing 10% AHA Lotion contains 10% glycolic acid, an ingredient that may increase your skin's sensitivity to the sun and the possibility of sunburn. Always apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen rated SPF 30 or greater every day. When outdoors, wear protective clothing whenever possible, seek shade, and avoid prolonged sun exposure.

    Comments about RESIST Skin Revealing 10% AHA Lotion - 7 oz:

    Yesterday after my shower, I used this lotion on my legs for the first time just before going to dinner with my husband. During the drive to the restaurant, I felt my legs just out of curiosity. I could tell an immediate difference in the softness and smoothness of my lower legs. I even told my husband to feel. He simply said, "Wow!" I totally agree - WOW! I always moisturize my legs after my shower and have been finding that it is not enough (could it be because I am 47 years old???); my legs would still look dry. You know that "look" of dryness on your legs even after moisturizing (if you have dry skin you know exactly what I'm talking about). It is so frustrating and very unattractive. I think this lotion is going to be my ONLY lotion!!! Today is day 2 and WOW still! Just get it and try it - P'sC has an excellent try it or return it policy.

        Comments about RESIST Skin Revealing 10% AHA Lotion - 7 oz:

        This product saved my skin! For years I struggled with under the skin bumps that would occansionally turn into pimples, but would mostly just stay hard bumps that created noticeable texture, especially on my chin. I tried what felt like everything to get these bumps to go away but nothing has worked as well as this product. The annoying bumps on my chin are GONE and my skin has never looked better. I use this all over my face every night, after cleansing and followed with a moisturizer. Normally any sort of treatment leaves my face extremely dry and sensitive but this has made my skin softer and I've never noticed any drying. If you've struggled with hard bumps and ugly texture, this product is your savior! I have never been this confident with my skin!

          Comments about RESIST Skin Revealing 10% AHA Lotion - 7 oz:

          I wanted an AHA lotion for my extra dry sun spots that I have acquired on my arms and legs after years of poorly protected sun exposure. I first tried a somewhat cheaper (but not cheap) drugstore AHA body lotion. This lotion did nothing more than moisturize my skin. That in itself isn't a negative, but I was purchasing it for more than that. The extra cost does not warrant a repurchase for that quality alone when there are cheaper and just as effective products available. I have since tried and become a devoted user of Paula's Choice RESIST Skin Revealing Body Lotion With 10% AHA. Since I've switched, those itchy and dry sun spots have abated. What once were red and noticeable spots on my arms and legs are now virtually non-existent. I don't particularly like the "unscented" scent of this lotion, but it's mild and I usually top it off with a scented lotion of my liking.

          Comments about RESIST Skin Revealing 10% AHA Lotion - 7 oz:

          When I originally bought this AHA lotion, I wanted to use it as a face moisturizer. I got both the BHA and the AHA version of this lotion and I alternated them every day on my face, and they felt nice but I didn't really notice much change in my skin. (That isn't to say it wasn't doing something, I just never personally noticed any change!)
          However, winter came along and my body started feeling more and more dry. So, I finally decided to start using it as it is intended - as a body lotion, and WOW. I have never felt softer, smoother skin within days of using one product. I've always been someone that used physical exfoliation with homemade sugar scrubs, which I still enjoy using from time to time, but this is easier, quicker to use, less messy and none of them have ever eliminated the white bumps on my body quicker than this lotion has. My only complaint is that the bottle is a bit small for an all over body, every night lotion. I feel like I'm going to run out pretty quickly. But if you're a bit sensitive to chemical exfoliants and want to use this as a weekly treatment, or if you are planning on using this as a face moisturizer(which I still recommend, even though I said I didn't personally see a huge difference), then the size of the bottle won't be much of an issue for you.
          This product has shown me what I have been missing from my body skincare routine! Regular lotions just don't do what this lotion does. I highly, highly recommend.

                Comments about RESIST Skin Revealing 10% AHA Lotion - 7 oz:

                I had been using the Resist Weightless 2% BHA body exfoliant for a few years for treating my KP, which works well on some areas of the body, just not all areas, which I assume is due to the difference in skin texture in different areas. The last time I placed an order, I noticed that the 2% wasn't really being marketed as a KP treatment any longer, but the 10% AHA was instead. So... I decided to order the 10% AHA instead. Well, I continued to use the rest of my supply of 2% BHA before finally pulling the 10% AHA out of the closet and giving it a try. Hate it. It's greasy, has a slight odor that I'm not crazy about, but worst of all is that it stings, quite a bit actually, particularly after a shave or on any blemish areas. The sting does subside after a few minutes, but it's definitely not pleasant.

                  I love this product for its stated purposes but have found that it has also reduced the frequency of ingrown hairs near the bikini area. I wouldn't use this product right after you shave, as it could burn/sting. I wait a day or so after I wax or shave before using it. It's a great multi-tasker!
