    incredible
    • I've already bought and used up two bottles of this stuff, it just works so well for me. And now, before buying the 3rd bottle, I had to finally write a review. I've had acne on my back ever since I started puberty and no matter what I did I couldn't get rid of it. But since I use this stuff regularly my back is completely CLEAN and smooth and I finally don't have to cover it up all the time. There still are some tiny scars but the longer I use the treatment, the more they disappear. Love it!

    Must-have
    • This has become an essential product for me. I'm prone to back acne, a condition made severely worse by riding my bike as my main mode of transportation. After a week of daily use I saw significant reduction in bacne which was all about again except for pih marks after 3 weeks. Now for maintenance I just use this every other day and my back has been clear. It's also great for preventing acne on my face and giving me smooth skin all over my body.

    Must-have product!
    • This stuff truly is amazing. I've suffered from chest and back acne since I was a teenager and have tried everything under the sun. I used to use bha toners plus benzoyl peroxide which made my chest skins rough, dry, patchy, and red. Then I discovered this product. I use twice a day on my chest and on my back as needed and it has worked wonders! And my skin is soft and smooth. I highly recommend!

    Fast Results!
    • I did not expect this body treatment to start working so quickly. I noticed my Keratosis Pilaris along my arms has significantly been reduced, along with any body acne scaring. My skin feels incredibly smooth and just an overall improvement in my skin. I used to be extremely overweight, so my thighs would rub together which left marks. Since losing a significant amount of weight I have tried many treatments, but this has truly been the best. I am just extremely happy with this product overall.

    Treats my keratosis pilaris and rough skin
    • I had basically given up trying to clear my chest from KP and exfoliating my skin without using harsh beads or sugar scrubs. Nothing seemed to work and only made my skin worse. This product is literally just what I needed - it's so nice to put on my skin after showering and seeing the KP disappear day after day, and I've noticed a significant improvement in the softness of my skin all over. I'm so happy I've found this product, and I really love that it's affordable too!

    Treated my KP
    • Not only do I have keratosis pilaris, I also have very sensitive skin. My dermatologist recommended salicylic acid (BHA) and this lotion did the trick. The In less than a week the bumps were significantly smaller and scarce . Thank you PC staff.

    • Best product ever for my bumpy problem skin. I used to go into a tanning bed to keep the bumps under control but that is so damaging. Haven't had to do that since finding this product. Thank You!

    The search is over!
    • It used to be so hard to find a BHA product for my body! Very, very happy that I found Paula's Choice and that there is a selection of body exfoliants that can be used on a daily basis to provide both moisture and antioxidants. I use this every morning after I shower on my upper arms, chest, and back. I like that it dries fast and feels weightless on the body. Just an all around great product that helps keep my body acne/blemishes under control.

    Good for face!
    • I was previously using the Olay Renewal Cream with BHA. After using the Resist Weightless Body Treatment for the past two nights, I can see a major difference! This product makes my skin look and feel much smoother in the morning - it has already eliminated some milia and blackheads. My skin also looks less red when I wake up and I'm looking forward to seeing more results. Very glad this product is cheaper than the other BHA products because otherwise I would not have tried ordering to Canada.

    Not For Me
    • Since the 2% BHA treatment worked so nicely on my face, I was really hoping this would work for the rest of my body. I used this every other day for a few months and there was unfortunately little improvement. It didn't reduce the small red bumps / chicken skin on my legs or on my arms, though it did make my skin pretty soft. Would not purchase again.

    No results
    • After almost 2 months of regular use there has been no improvement in my skin's texture. I used it on areas with KP and without. If anything it has made my skin bumpier. I'm so disappointed as I really thought this would work! Love PC products but not this one!

    I didn't get any result....
    • I used it for 2 months with body lotion 10% AHA and retinol skin smoothing body treatment, but I am so sad because It didn't work well. My KP is still existed, and it didn't work for removing bumps and redness. I don't know that my using time was so short to solve my skin problem or not because my KP is so serious. So I just considering ... I have to use it more or not.

    Amazing results!
    • I've tried pretty much everything for my pilaris keratosis and never had great results.I've been using this cream for about 3 weeks. I noticed an improvement immediately. Then I noticed a period of worsening and increased redness. It's dry and cold where I am, so I thought I might need some more moisture. So I started applying a very emollient moisterizer after this treatment. The two combined have cleared my KP up remarkably. I can't remember the last time my skin looked this good!

    Wonderful for my face skin exfolidation and calming rosacea
    • I adore this product. I mainly use it for my face as this is the most compatible with my skin texture of all BHAs here. It erases my little red pimples from rosacea, calm down redness and imparts luminosity to my skin due to exfoliation. I love how gentle this is and I am not afraid to use it every day. I also love it for the whole body but only occasionally.

    WOW!
    • I, too, was skeptical, as nothing has ever helped my KP on the backs of my arms, but as I'm getting married in 6 months, I'd thought I would try it. After 4 days, I have seen a HUGE difference. It's not completely gone, but it is noticeably better and I'm hopeful it will be completely gone soon. I have been applying it twice a day.

    Works for Keratosis!!!
    • Skeptical as I was, I purchased this pricey lotion. I used it for one week straight, and repeatedly kept running my hands down the back of my arms, not sure if it was working or not. What sealed my 5 star rating was my husband commenting "The backs of your arms are smooth! That lotion must be working." Three weeks in, and I have nearly flawless arms. While I understand this is not a permanent fix, I am now a lifetime subscriber. Never discontinue this product! I would cry.

    Works for body acne!
    • It treats my back acne and smooths out 2 dry rough patches I have on my back. It also evens out the skin there as well. This product is the only thing I've found that truly works for body acne. I've also used this on my face. It's a bit too drying so I'll just stick with the Clear regular strength solution for now. Overall, great product!

    • I use this on my face everyday. My skin has never felt softer and my blemishes have really diminished. My husband couldn't believe my skin in such a short time, Now he's stealing it from me and loving it too. My causing just ordered for the first time and bought this. I love Paulas body products because I dont have a lot of money to spend on skincare and you get a lot of product for your money. Thanks Paula for the great body products that I can also use on my face...

    Just purchased a third bottle!
    • I love to use this on my face and body! I was neutral about the smell at first, but eventually grew to like the smell. This has helped shrink the acne size on my back (which I am very happy about), but they are not gone completely. I wonder what more could be done to get rid of the acne completely. Overall, thanks Paula's Choice!

    Disappointed, didn't work!
    • From the rave reviews and the prospect at ridding my KP once and for all made me very excited to use this product. I used it religiously every day for three weeks and have seen no change in my KP at all... I know it takes time to see results, but after three weeks I expected at least something? It must be a sign that this lotion does not work for me and my search for my miracle lotion continues...

    It delivers as promised.
    • Tried this after the AHA Body Lotion was not making the difference I expected. This is the stuff for my KP on legs and arms. The BHA took less than a week to make the skin on my legs smoother and the KP bumps less prominent, itchy, and red. The AHA, with the same application of BHA, twice a day just did not make an impact on my stubborn KP. Used the whole AHA Tube and it was 50% cleared. The BHA with the same application and my KP cleared 99% in less than a week. The BHA's by PC are just great!

What makes this product unique?
Resist Weightless Body Treatment is truly a one-of-a-kind product! This anti-aging body lotion contains an effective amount of salicylic acid (BHA) formulated at a pH range (3.5-3.9) that allows the BHA to have superior exfoliating properties. As a result, it works to soften rough, bumpy areas, ease dryness, help clear breakouts from the neck down, stimulate collagen production and banish dullness for improved skin tone. This silky, lightweight moisturizer sets to a soft matte finish and is packed with proven antioxidants and potent anti-irritants to keep skin youthful and healthy. This specialized body product will reveal younger-looking skin with a renewed firmness, refined texture and fewer discolorations from sun damage.

Who is this product for?
Resist Weightless Body Treatment is great for anyone who is prone to breakouts or struggling with signs of aging anywhere on their body. It is also extremely effective at relieving red bumps and rough areas on the body (keratosis pilaris). This silky body lotion also works to improve skin tone and texture, both of which contribute to a more youthful look.

NOTE: Those allergic to aspirin (acetylsalicylate) should not use products containing salicylic acid (beta hydroxy acid).

What's the difference between AHA and BHA exfoliants? Do I need both?

When properly formulated, both AHAs and BHA are brilliant options for exfoliating the surface of skin. You do not need to use both, but some people like alternating. Both AHA and BHA work to reduce wrinkles, stimulate collagen, and firm skin but each has its special qualities you'll want to consider when deciding which one to use:

  • AHAs are preferred for sun-damaged and dry skin because they exfoliate on the surface of skin and have the added benefit of also improving moisture content.
  • BHA is preferred for oily, acne-prone skin and for treating blackheads and white bumps because BHA can get through the oil that's clogging your pores, normalizing the lining of the misshapen pore that contributes to acne.
  • BHA has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial action. Those are two more reasons to use a BHA exfoliant if you have acne or sensitive, reddened skin.
  • Both AHA and BHA work to fight keratosis pilaris ("chicken skin") but BHA has the advantage due to its ability to penetrate the pore lining where these raised, red bumps begin.

If your skin is sun-damaged and you're also struggling with acne or clogged pores, add a BHA product to your routine.

How does Resist Weightless Body Treatment with 2% BHA differ from the Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Exfoliant?

The primary difference is with the base formula. The lotion base of Weightless Body Treatment with 2% BHA is silky and lightweight yet hydrating, and it contains several anti-aging ingredients to help skin from the neck down look and act younger. Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid, Gel, and 2% Beta Hydroxy Acid Lotion contains the same percentage of salicylic acid, but in different bases designed to work with other facial-care products.

Can I use Resist Weightless Body Treatment with 2% BHA on my face?

Yes. In fact, some skin types may prefer the texture of Resist Weightless Body Treatment with 2% BHA for facial use.

I am using Renova/Retin-A on sun-damaged body skin. Is it OK to use this with Resist Weightless Body Treatment with 2% BHA?

There is no reason not to try and see if this works for you and you can always ask the physician who gave you the prescription their opinion. Renova and Retin-A have a completely different benefit for skin than BHA does but both are excellent for anti-aging skincare. BHA exfoliates built up dead skin cells on the surface of skin and in the pore, while the active ingredient in Retin-A and Renova is a cell communicating ingredient that improves the way skin cells are made in the lower layers of skin.
