About Me Beauty Conscious
Comments about RESIST Daily Pore-Refining Treatment 2% BHA - 3 oz:
I have only been using Paula's Choice products for a couple months now, but my skin has truly never looked better! I use this Resist Daily Pore Refining Treatment 2x daily and combination/oily skin loves it. Introducing the right BHA product was totally key for me and I love that this treatment has anti-ageing benefits as well. The combination is a total dream and is a true must-have product for me!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

effective not overpowering
from TX houston
I use this twice a week and it helps a lot in term in really exfoliant my skin after my paula's choice pore balancing (skin balancing)toner but it is more effective when using the resist weightless advanced repairing toner but i did not have it at that time which really helps but the cons are if use too much my skin starts to dry out and i would not use it until my dry skin dies down.

No effect on reducing milia
I have used up half bottle but i didnt see any effect on improving my skin, especially milia. I'm very disappointed at this product. This is my first time trying this brand. It doesnt sound as good as the reviews said. I'm quite doubt should I try another product from the same brand. I can say it has no or very very very very minimal effect on my skin. In contrast, more and more milia appear on my skin.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

About Me Beauty Expert
I use this daily during my night routine. I barely break out now and my weird bumps and skin things on my neck are gone now. It's non-irritating and non-drying. I ran out of this and bought the Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA fluid, thinking it was the same or better, and that was way too drying for my face. My face didn't like it at all and I'd break out in itchy bumps all over my face and neck. I repurchased this product immediately and am going to stick with it.

Not my favorite
I am a devoted Paula's choice customer and when it comes to skin care, this is the only place I'll buy from. To be honest I was content with the clear bha regular strength but instead of meeting the claims of ridding me of blackheads and breakouts completely, it barely kept them at bay. I have also tried the classic bha 2% liquid and after having no change as well I attempted Resist hoping this was the one. It is a nice product but not enough to repurchase.
Unforunately Not For Me
from Los Angeles, CA
This product unfortunately did not work for me. I first started with the Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant and that was great for the first month or two - my skin was really glowing and felt more moisturized without being oily. Then all of a sudden my skin seemed to plateau. It didn't have the same effect as before and went back to what it was before so I decided to maybe try another product. I used this Resist Pore Refining version and I tried to give it some time to get working but after a couple weeks my skin was worse. It was more oily, my pores were larger than before and I started breaking out and getting cyst like pimples on my forehead - something I already have a prescription for to eliminate. I don't know if this product creates a "purge" phase where your skin goes crazy for a couple weeks and then it starts clearing up - but I just couldn't wait it out because my skin was frustrating me every day. For context - I'm 31, have medium toned/latina skin - it's pretty oily, I have large pores, some discoloration, sun damage, blotchiness and lots of clogged pores and blackheads, etc. My skin tends to look pretty dull and sad at times depending on what products I'm using/not using - I have yet to find something that helps all around. Disappointed this didn't work one bit for me.

from Amsterdam, Netherlands
I am 43, and have sensitive, oily and acne prone skin. I initially tried Paula's Choice Resist products for two weeks and loved them. Now I have been using them for 6 weeks. My skin never looked as good: got rid of acne, my skin is more balanced, and glows! I can't imagine my life without those products!
Best BHA for my skin
I've tried all of the BHA products by PC and this is by far my fav. It has a soothing feel to the skin, effective exfoliation and the slightly higher ph than regular 2% liquid seems to be tolerated better by my slightly sensitive skin. I can use this morning and night and love it. I've tried all of PC 's products and recently figured out what regimen works best and this is part of it! Please never discontinue! !!
Nice addition to skincare routine
from Raleigh, NC
I've been through three bottles of this stuff and I really like it. I'm still young so I don't have much concern with wrinkles or fine lines at the moment, but I'd like to prevent them and I feel like this will help with that. It's also soothing and it seems to even out my skin tone. I like that I can apply this in the morning under moisturizer and makeup and it's not too heavy. Will continue to use!
I wanted it to work
from Austin, TX
After reading reviews on how well this worked I gave it a try. I used the whole bottle and have not seen any results. My pores and face look the same. I had high hopes but it did not work for me.
