What does it do?
Delivers smoother, visibly younger-looking skin overnight. Specialized technology encapsulates the anti-aging and pore-reducing BHA for time-released delivery—so you get dramatic, non-irritating results without flaking skin. Also helps to visibly calm redness and revive skin’s firm appearance for a more youthful look. It’s even suitable for skin prone to milia.
Collapse
How to use
Use at least once weekly, at night. After cleansing and toning, dispense one pump and smooth treatment over face, neck, and chest. Do not rinse. Follow with the rest of your evening skincare routine.

May be used once a week or daily depending on your skin's response and your concerns. It can be applied at the same time as your regular BHA exfoliant, but pay attention to how your skin responds and adjust usage accordingly. Do not apply to lips or eyelids eye area.

If eye contact occurs, hold eye open and rinse immediately and thoroughly with plenty of water for at least 20 minutes. Remove contact lenses, if present, after the first five minutes, then continue rinsing the eye. Consult your eye doctor immediately for care advice.

    Comments about RESIST Weekly Retexturizing Foaming Treatment 4% BHA:

    First time I used, i did experience the itching others complained about. But I slathered on a heavy moisturizer over top. Woke up the next morning and all my existing pimples had called down, I didn't have any new pimples either. My skin felt so soft and smooth. So I planned to only use it one a week based off other reviews saying how trying and harsh it was, but since I wasn't experiencing any over trying or pain and I loved how it made my skin feel I decided to do half a pump on my face every night with a heavy moisturizer over top. I will also apply the BHA 9 to spot areas and this on top and a moisturizer. I now no longer have blackheads, and only occasional pimples around my cycle. I have extremely oily skin, EXTREMELY OILY! So this is probably why I am able to tolerate this product with such frequent use. If you have dry skin you should probably not use this.

        I do not have sensitive skin and use exfoliants and retinol daily together without issue. I've tried this product numerous times and always end up with red swollen skin that looks like a chemical burn. Horrible formulation!

        Comments about RESIST Weekly Retexturizing Foaming Treatment 4% BHA:

        I went through two bottles of this, and it worked great. I do not have sensitive skin--in fact, I used it five times a week while using Retin-A every night. The last bottle I received gave me a horrible rash after my first use. It looked like I had chemical burns on my chin and cheeks. Stayed that way for about five days. I thought the problem must be me, because I'd been using it with no adverse reactions for a long time. Tried it again, same result. Customer service assured me there'd been no change in formula. Since then, I've been using it on my feet and the results have been great! Sadly, I won't order anymore...too expensive to be using just on my feet.

        Service and delivery comments:

        As always, service and delivery of the product was top notch. Arrived in perfect condition and quickly. PC customer service is the best!

        Comments about RESIST Weekly Retexturizing Foaming Treatment 4% BHA:

        My son is going through that hormonal phase they all do and gets some pretty serious breakouts as a result. I started him on the PC4Men products (cleanser and toner) two years ago and we use this product twice a week on his breakouts. It makes a huge difference and the difference can be seen overnight. Follow the directions and use sparingly (no more than twice a week) and you won't have these reactions others are describing. Be careful if you are using retinoids though - I use Retin A at night and so I can only use this as a spot treatment once a week and I will skip my retinoids the night I use this. One week he decided to overdo it and he found out why following the directions is important, as it left him with a red, irritated patch that looked like a chemical burn and took a week to heal. Be patient. Yes, the smell is gross but it does dissipate quickly.

          I love this product. I have combination skin, sensitive. No problems with this product. I do not notice a smell, but everyone's different. I think it works great. The skin around my eyes is very sensitive, but I have had no problems whatsoever. I think you probably need to be really careful not to put on the eye area if you are hyper sensitive.

              I have used Paula's Choice products for years and have been very pleased with most of them. Not this one, though. I applied it Wednesday night and woke up Thursday with swollen and red skin and puffy eyes. My skin feels like needles are pricking it over and over again. It is now Friday and it appears as though it triggered a flare-up of peri-oral dermatitis. I spent 6 months and hundreds of dollars trying to get this condition cleared up last year. I am devastated that it is back. My skin is bumpy, red and swollen. I wish I had looked at the reviews more carefully before purchasing. I am able to use the other BHA treatment without negative effects but I still had some stubborn places that needed clearing. Unfortunately this product has left me with even bigger problems than what I started with originally.

              The smell is really not that bad. I feel people may be over exaggerating. The smell goes away within seconds....

              Anyways, I started using this product weekly and it did irritate my skin at first. Just some redness and tenderness. I then reduced the use to every 10-14 days. My skin eventually got used to it and I slowly started using it more frequently. I now use it everyday and my skin is sooooo soft and smooth. Please be patient!

              Red marks are fading away quickly and the pimples that occasionally pop up go away in about 2-3 days. Before it would take about 7 days to disappear. It also helped fade away the discloration above my lip (looked like a mustache shadow) and forehead.

              It's a great product. Give it a chance and be patient. Also don't give up if irritation occurs, just reduce the use. It is a higher BHA exfoliant after all.

              With adult issues of hormonal acne and rosacea, my poor skin was just ravaged - - rough, patchy. In conjunction of my dermatologist's guidance, I use this product every night. I have really noticed a difference in both the roughness and patchiness and I know this product has helped greatly. I notice a difference when I miss using this. Just ordered my 2nd bottle and I am hoping the issue with the pump was just related to the first bottle.

                      Like several others, I cannot tolerate this formulation. I had the same reaction others have had - woke up with swollen eyes, rash, sandpapery skin, and now cracking and drying. I was trying to find a replacement for a very expensive lactic acid product I have successfully used, but I have to cross this product off my list permanently.
