Comments about RESIST Weekly Resurfacing Treatment 10% AHA - 2 oz:
It works and I saw results, but I hated the texture so much after application, I couldn't leave it on my face more than 10 minutes, but then that didn't give the same results as leaving it overnight. It creates a heavy, tacky mask-like feeling.Too runny for application, would prefer a gel rather than wasting product with a cotton pad.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

About Me Beauty Conscious
I use this product weekly and it definitely does smooth my skin and make it soft to touch. I use it at night before I go to sleep because it does irritate and redden my skin a bit. It washes off easily with my Clarisonic and face wash. Do not recommend if you have sensitive skin because it does not feel good.

This is without a doubt the best exfoliant I've ever used and believe me, I've tried them all!!! Pores clearer and smaller, skin tone amazing, smoother skin, clarified and toned skin. Brightens and just plain makes your skin look fresher, younger, cleaner, smoother, clearer and the list goes on and on...It is a bit pricey for the small amount, but you should not use it daily, anyway. 2-3 times a wk, once depending on skin sensitivity. It's fairly strong, but unless it is, for me, I don't see real exfoliation results! It also seems to help normalize my skin, probably due to removal of old skin cells. I have nothing bad to say about this product, except the price...Hope this product is available forever! People tell me I have beautiful skin now...didn't ever hear that one before!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

About Me Minimalist
So this may sound dramatic, but in my skin care history I have NEVER experienced as immediate results from a product as I did from this exfoliant. Arrived to my house on Thursday afternoon, put it on for the first time ever that night, and woke up Friday morning to a noticeable difference in the smoothness of my skin. I'd had some hormonal breakouts around my mouth before applying it, and by morning they'd reduced in size significantly (I assume from this product). I'd been hesitant about purchasing this for ages because of the price tag and being tight on funds, but I'm so glad I finally did. Probably the best investment in my skin I've ever made, and you need so little product to accomplish what it's meant to do that it should last for a long time. Only advice I'd give for this is if you're the type to groom the area around your eyebrows with eyebrow razors (like myself) don't do so before applying this. I'd just groomed mine beforehand and it burned quite a bit. Probably won't be an issue for most, but figured I'd mention it just in case.

Effective and non-irritating
from Los Angeles
This product is incredible. I have thick and insensitive skin, so I don't feel any type of tingling at all. I also have a horrible sense of smell so it doesn't smell like anything to me. Left on overnight, you will wake up with soft, smooth, glowing skin.

About Me Beauty Expert
I use Paula's Choice products exclusively and will continue to forever!!! Her products work wonders on my skin and this product is no exception. I have used it 3x so far, once a week and I love it!!! My skin is so smooth and clear!!!! This is a new favorite of mine, right up there with my beloved 8% aha gel which I also cannot live without!!! I would definitely recommend not using this product more than 1x a week to start though, to avoid irritation as your skin gets used to it. Thank you Paula and team for another wonderful product!!!!!!!

I purchased this for my mum, and took it back to Australia for her. I noticed the difference in her skin tone and smoothness the second week she used it. I decided I had to get some for myself. I could notice a change in the smoothness of my skin after one application (left on the skin overnight over my PC Resist toner), followed by an the PC clinical ultra rich moisturizer) . My pores are also smaller as a result. I am super impressed with the product and can't wait to see further results from this product through weekly use.

Perfect Addition to my Skincare Regimen
from Gainesville, FL
The 10% AHA liquid is among my top 5 favorite PC products I use. I apply it about once or twice a week and my skin always looks flawless the next morning. Anytime I have a special event to attend to I always make sure to apply this the night before because it makes a remarkable difference in my complexion. My skin is pretty sensitive so it does mildly sting immediately after I apply this product but the sensation goes away quickly. I also struggle with acne and acne scars and this has helped tremendously with those issues. I definitely recommend this product!

Doesn't Make a Difference
from Bellingham, WA
I was so excited to receive this product after reading all the rave reviews. I have a pretty good skin care routine now and all I needed was a weekly treatment to finish things off. I have very fair skin and scar easily so I have a lot of acne marks and general discoloration on my face, and a small amount of surface roughness on my chin. After using this twice a week since I bought it I have noticed absolutely no difference in my skin. It tingles when I put it on, and I wear it alone or layered with the moisturizing mask samples I got with my purchase. If anything, it breaks me out. I have not had such bad acne since I started using Paula's products (and after 3 weeks I thought I would be done with purging, and I don't have sensitive skin!) This is not helping any of my new scarring fade any faster or helping with old marks. Very disappointed, would not recommend at all.

Smoothed skin surface overnight
from Los Angles, CA
I am in the process of sampling all the PC exfoliators to find the right ones for me, and recently used two high-concentration AHA's: Resist Weekly (10% AHA) and Skin Perfecting (8% AHA).Both Resist Weekly and Skin Perfecting had similar properties when applied: viscous liquid texture spread easily without being too thin or drippy, inoffensive scent, tingled when applied, became slightly sticky when "dry". Both tangibly reduced the roughness of my skin overnight.If I were to choose based on specifications, I would give a slight edge to Resist Weekly due to its higher level of anti-aging ingredients and slightly more AHA concentration. I think Skin Perfecting is a high enough AHA concentration that I would also consider it a weekly or bi-weekly treatment, and it might be better for those who need just a tad less AHA. Based on price, Skin Perfecting is the more budget friendly of the two. Frankly, based on my short-lived experience, I think it is difficult to go wrong with either.
