Comments about RESIST Weekly Retexturizing Foam 4% BHA - 1.5 oz:
I tried this product two years ago and followed instruction of leaving it overnight. The result was horrible, I got red and flaky skin, so I immediately returned it. However, I constantly fight with blackheads and recently went back to this product. I red in one of the review that you can leave it only for the few hours and than wash off. I gave it a try and very satisfied with the result - less blackheads, but still calm skin!!!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Very effective - smells v bad.
By Alex Lnd
from Leesburg, VA
I love this. Good, effective BHA products are so hard to find and this one is one of the best I've ever tried. I use it once or twice a week on my t-zone and on acne prone areas. I also use it on stubborn blemishes as often as needed. It works very well at reducing oiliness, pore size and combating spots. I love the super lightweight foam texture which absorbs fast and also the fact that it doesn't irritate my skin (in spite of the whopping 4% BHA it contains)! The only drawback (hence the 4 as opposed to 5 stars) is that it smells quite bad. Luckily, the smell dissipates after 10-15 minutes or so.

This products had very bad smell, almost similar to dead fish. Nonetheless I used it as I have bumpy skin and though this would be a better product. This causes red bumps on the upper cheek area. I can easily use this around my nose and chin area but its too harsh for my cheeks as it burns. I would not recommend this product.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

It was effective from first tow uses, it cleaned my pores dramatically.
I just threw it out
I've had this product for about 8 months. It was working. I used it about a month ago and ago an awful reaction that resembled a chemical burn. I thought it was because I mixed it. After trying it agin about a month ago, same reaction but worse. My entire face fluffed up so I couldn't even put eye makeup on. My under eyes and entire face became red itchy and swollen. Again, I thought it was because I mixed it. I just used this product for the last time. I just woke up with the same reaction and It is even worse. Please don't do that I did and keep trying. Throw it out!

I purchased this product quite a while ago however have only really used it twice. The first time I used it I had somewhat of a reaction however thought it may be a fluke or be due to other contributing factors. So on Sunday (months after initial application), I applied the product at night. The next day when I woke up my skin was extremely red with smal bumps covering my face. By the following day my face was very swollen and itchy. Three days later and my under eyes are still swollen. Very disappointed!

Red, swollen, itchy, burning
from Ithaca, NY
I loved the first bottle I bought (around 1 year ago) --- it seemed to make a difference in my skin. The second bottle, however, caused red swollen burns (also itched) that took 3 or so days to disappear. I stopped using and tried again a few months later --- same reaction except much worse. Luckily, I had only used the product on part of my face. I'd suggest testing overnight on a SMALL patch of skin before using.
I love this product!
from Scottsdale, AZ
I use this product before I go to bed, after cleansing. I can use it 3 times a week without any sensitivity- I know the directions are just once a week. Basically, overnight, this product will erase my oily, acne, pore clogging, damaged looking skin. Its like getting a reboot for my face. I love it!

Leave on for Few Hours, NOT overnight
from Vancouver, Canada
About Me Beauty Conscious
BHA products are tricky for me. While they are effective, the side effect is usually dry flaky skin and additionally red at the worst. I have dry to normal skin but large pores and blackheads on my nose and under the lip area so BHA products are a must. For this product, at first, I did once a week, left overnight - basically as instructed. NOPE. I got dry, red flaky skin. It's too powerful for me to use overnight. (Note: it does clean pores, and greatly reduces blackheads on my nose every time I use it)So I experimented using it as a treatment mask, playing with how long to leave it on before rinsing with just plain water (than putting on usual products). 6 hours is the same as leaving it overnight for me. Around 3 hours, I will get a dry patch or two the next day but that's manageable. I found my ideal time is 2-3 hours and it's still as effective without the side effects. Using this with the BHA lotion has really improved my skin especially the stubborn nose blackheads I've had since puberty are finally visibly going away.I would recommend anyone that has had my reaction leaving it overnight, to instead use it as a mask for few hours instead.

I didn't have any reaction to this for the first month then all of a sudden my eyes will puff up and eyelids become itchy when I use it even though I am not putting it near my eyes.
