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:

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.

          I really loved this the first time so I ordered a second bottle. I'll also say that the first bottle lasted MONTHS; even though I used the product about 3-5 times a week. I was impressed with the results, very gentle, loved the texture, and I felt like it did a good job exfoliating.
          This second purchase, however has a terrible smell that the first bottle did not have. I can barely use it now bc it smells so bad! Now I understand previous reviews. Ugh.

              I've had this for a long time now. Since 2016. I just wanted to reread reviews to see if anyone else's smell like dead fish. I remember why I didn't use it. It smelled like fish from Day 1. I can't tell how effective it is because I've only forced myself to use it a few times. I'll let myself off the hook (pun) and just throw it out now. I don't write reviews often and don't like to write a negative one about Paula's product because I love most of them but I want to caution people. Everyone's must not be this way because it would be mentioned a lot more. I'm not exaggerating unfortunately.

                  I used this product one night, and the next morning I woke up with incredible swollen eyes that I could not open. My skin was rough and textured and remained this way for a few weeks. I used this product years ago and it was fine. I think they have changed the formulation. Please do not use this product.

                  This product is amazing! I have been struggling with closed comedones heavily on my forehead and chin, and within months of using this product in addition with the 2% BHA Skin Perfecting Liquid, my skin looks better than ever!!! I apply this about 2-3 times a week at night (replacing my usual nightly Skin Perfecting BHA) and I absolutely love it. I cannot say enough good things about it! All of my closed comedones have mostly disappeared, some of my larger pores have diminished, and my skin is totally soft and smooth! If you are curious about trying this product, I HIGHLY recommend it, as I cannot imagine life without it now!

                      I ONLY use (and love) PC's products on my body and face and wanted to try this one as well. I have ordered this product a while ago and had it sit in my drawer till now. Last week I've decided to use it on the weekend and was horrified when I looked at my face in the mirror next morning. I was all red and my eyes were swollen shut and red as well. Till this day my skin is covered in weird rush and feels rough to touch. I would return it, but first, it's too late and second, just shipping the product back form Canada would probably cost me more than it's worth. it Very sad this didn't work out for me.

                          I have been using this product for several years without an issue until now. I have very tolerant skin and am accustomed to using products far stronger than this one, so having a reaction is really strange for me. This last bottle I ordered has a very strange fishy odor. Truly, it makes my face smell like rotting fish. Also, I have no idea what sort of caustic chemical they put in there, but it causes a strange sort of rash. Again, I have to point out that I do NOT have sensitive skin, and am accustomed to much stronger products, including very strong chemical peels. I do not know what happened. Did they change the formula, or does their manufacturing plant have poor quality control? I seriously can't imagine what they must have put in here to give it that horrible smell, and create such a caustic rash on my otherwise very tolerant skin. I guess this has to go in the trash. I won't be taking a chance on this any more.

                              I have used this product in the past with no issues at all. I recently restocked, used it as I usually do overnight. I woke up this morning looking like a burn victim. Eyes swollen shut. This has never happened in the past. Has the formulation changed? Did I get a bad batch? I seriously look like I've had an intense chemical peel. Not good, and I'm a long time Paula user/fan
