What does it do?
Works overnight (almost like magic) to reveal youthful, smoother, and more radiant-looking skin. A unique liquid delivery system plus innovative soothing ingredients provides gentle, yet impressive results. You’ll see a visibly improved texture, color, and tone, and a reduction in the appearance of wrinkles. With ongoing use, skin’s appearance becomes firmer looking and maintains its beautifully smooth texture. Suitable even for skin prone to milia.
Collapse
How to use
Apply once weekly, only at night, in place of your daily exfoliant. After cleansing and toning, apply a dime-sized amount over the entire face, avoiding direct contact with eyes and lips. Leave on overnight or rinse after 10 minutes. On the night(s) you use this Treatment do not use other exfoliants or scrubs at the same time. In the mornings you can use other exfoliants as per your normal routine. If you're using a prescription retinoid product (i.e. Renova) apply the exfoliant first and allow it to set, then apply the retinoid product. Follow with a serum and/or moisturizer.

Sun Protection Advice When Using Any AHA Exfoliant: This product 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 Weekly Resurfacing Treatment 10% AHA - 2 oz:

    I've been using this product for a few years. I love it. What this product does for me is that it visibly brightens and diminishes discoloration when I sleep with it on my face, as well as clear up any blemishes I may have! I've also noticed it really gets that tough layer of dead skin cells off so I can more easily extract any micro comodomes I may have. Really awesome product, and like I said, you really see results immediately. However, when you wake up the next day it's another level. It gives you the most smooth and radiant skin ever.

    Please be careful when using this, though, you shouldn't over exfoliate. You may not even need to use it every week if you're using other exfoliating products. Always wear spf when using this or your skin will be damaged.

      Comments about RESIST Weekly Resurfacing Treatment 10% AHA - 2 oz:

      I have many of Paula's products and really like them. This product when first applied smells like fish. It seems to eventually go away, but it's bad. I'm single so no problem, but if you have a partner they may object.
      I used it this product once a week for months with no problems. Then last month on two separate occasions I applied it at night and in the morning it was like I had a sun burn. My face was red and burned. It went away in a couple days, I was able to cover it with foundation, but it scared me. I threw it out, not taking any chances.
      I also didn't notice it making much of a difference when it didn't irritate my skin.

        Comments about RESIST Weekly Resurfacing Treatment 10% AHA - 2 oz:

        I'm extremely happy with PC products, using them about 7 weeks, and didn't expect another extreme improvement in my skin, as I did in the beginning. Now, I wait to see results from the serums and other actives. Well, then I tried the AHA 10%! The next day my face was so clear and even-toned! These effects were so very obvious due to the bright glow that my face now had. This is a great one! So, I used it two nights in a row and peeled a little bit. I will have to hold myself back and apply it perhaps every second or third night.

          Not everything works, THIS works. This works so well that I had a facial microdermabrasion done and there was nothing to exfoliate. Paula needs to sell this in a vat for the body..

            I have VERY sensitive, normal to dry skin with some texture from past breakouts. I've been using this twice a week on Wed and Sun. I always know I'll have great skin on Thurs and Mon! Noticeable difference in the smoothness and a reduction in the dark patches from sun damage on my skin in the morning. I've been using PC products for the last 15 years and couldn't be more happy with them!

            Prompt deliver, excellent customer service!

              I've used this about 2x's so far in the last couple of weeks and I really like it. Even better the 2nd time around! I only use it 1x a week at night and it really helps to slough & lift away the dead skin from the week to reveal a fresh looking face. It tingled my face slightly, but quickly dissipated. Will be using & purchasing again.

              Comments about RESIST Weekly Resurfacing Treatment 10% AHA - 2 oz:

              I use this primarily in the winter months because my skin cannot handle Retin-A during the winter when it starts to crack and needs serious moisturizer.

              During the summer months, I use this about every two weeks. For me just the 10 minutes on and rinse off was enough. I didn't see any difference between wearing it overnight and just doing a short treatment once a week.

              I prefer this AHA over the BHA, but that's because it just works for me this way.

              I use this twice a week. I love that I can put this on at night and wake up with softer, smoother, better looking skin. It does make my skin feel a bit sticky but when using it before bed it really is not a big deal.

                I've been afraid of Glycolic in the past, but it turns out I need it! This product has made the biggest difference in my skin IN ONE USE! I decided to try the wash off method. I put saturated a cotton pad and applied all over my face (even my rosacea areas) and left on for only 8 minutes. I washed it off with a little bit of cleanser and I immediately noticed how smooth my skin was. I battle texture and comedomes on a daily basis as my pores are enlarged. I woke up the next morning and the texture on my forehead was gone! Also my pores were smaller and my skin tone was more even. I was amazed. It even shrunk my cystic time of the month blemish on my chin that I have been trying to get it to come to a head for a couple of days already. I will keep this in my weekly routine forever!

                    I was using this product every night at the beginning. And a month later I started to apply it on my face once every 3~4 days or a week. But when I started to use 1% retinol, I had to stop using this since it was hurting my skin so bad.
                    It seemed It worked great eliminating the dead cells. But it did (87%)nothing for my black heads and sun spots.
                    And I think I prefer using lower AHA every day to using this one once a week. For me it seems that way works better on my skin.
