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.

Works with My Sensitive Skin

By KBrac

Comments about RESIST Weekly Resurfacing Treatment with 10% AHA:

I have very sensitive skin and was very wary of trying this product out. I am so glad that I did! I use it twice a week overnight and have had great results. My skin has a clearer look and clogged pore bumps have diminished. The improvement is noticeable which almost never happens with a skin product. I need to be careful with what products I put on my face the next day (no vitamin C serum for example). The exfoliation makes my skin more vulnerable to other products but as long as I exercise some common-sense precautions (which is hard because I want to use all the serums all the time) this product is phenomenal!

    Comments about RESIST Weekly Resurfacing Treatment with 10% AHA:

    I bought this a while ago and because I use another 10% glycolic acid from another brand and thought my skin was used to it, I decided to try it again. Last Friday I applied it to my chest where I have lots of wrinkles and the next day I noticed many small, red bumps like tiny pimples. It's now Thursday and they're still there. I know they will go away eventually as it happened before, but now I'm scared to keep using it. Should I try again this week hoping it will help improve, or skip altogether?

      Comments about RESIST Weekly Resurfacing Treatment with 10% AHA:

      I LOVE the 10% weekly resurfacing treatment. I feel like it's like pressing a "restart" button for your skin. I have normal/dry skin and it is relatively hearty, meaning that it's pretty tolerant of exfoliants. The first time I ever used it, I left it on for the initial recommended 10 minutes. There definitely was a tad of a tingle/burn for the first minute or so, then it subsided. After doing that a couple of times, I started to leave it on overnight, as you can also do. If your skin can tolerate it, it makes SUCH a difference. I wake up with brighter, smoother, decongested skin. Like I said, it's like having a "refresh" button! I've recently found that it works wonders in combination with the overnight brightening mask! I put the glycolic peel on, let it sit for a bit and then put the overnight brightening mask on over the top. It's a miracle combo!

        Miracle product

        Comments about RESIST Weekly Resurfacing Treatment with 10% AHA:

        For me, this is nothing short of a miracle product. If I had to pick one item to keep from the PC collection, this would be it. It truly does resurface the skin --- in a single use. Whenever I get small bumps, spots, zits or un-evenenss due to experimenting with products that didn't work for me, I smoothe this on with a cotton ball at night, and in the morning, the problems are GONE. Truly. Spots just vanish. (It stings a bit when you put it on --- that's normal, but there is zero irritation.) I am 49 and my skin is mostly normal but very sensitive, a bit dry/tight yet breaks out easily if I use the wrong product. Most of the time, my skin is in great condition due to using only PC products, and I use this once a week to keep things silky smooth. There is nothing else like it on the market. Please don't ever stop making this.

          Once a week use this at night after you cleanse and tone. The other nights of the week I use the AHA treatment, then moisturizer. Let's just say that nobody believes I'm 56.

            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.

                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.
