Bye bye dark spot
About Me Beauty Expert
Comments about RESIST Dark Spot Eraser 2% BHA - 1 oz:
I like the gel texture, very nice to apply. My sensitive and combination skin tolerates it very well. It does not grease the skin. I used this product with the Resist 25% Vitamin C Spot Treatment. I do not know which one was the more effective but the two together: magic. I had two large dark spots under each of my eyes due to exposure to sunlight. Each year, it was getting worse. A friend even asked me "what do you have under your eyes.?" ... It made me look tired all the time. With these products, within a month, my dark spots were erased. I hardly see them (only if I concentrate on the mirror) and my friend has noticed it too. I used both products morning and night... and now I put sunscreen every day!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Treats post-acne marks, behaves badly with other products
By Coder Girl
from Pleasanton, CA
About Me Minimalist
I use this product at night after cleansing with hydralight cleanser, toning with skin balancing pore-reducing toner, in place of resist pore-refining 2% BHA. I must wait 10-15 minutes after application for the product to set before applying resist ultra-light antioxidant serum and resist barrier repair moisturizer with retinol. I tried this as a sample, with a quick and noticeable reduction in darkness and size of post-acne marks. I ordered the full size to continue results. With PC's skincare products greatly reducing the frequency of breakouts, this tube may be the only one I need to remove post-acne marks for good. If it weren't for the thickness and difficulty of application, I would give this 5 stars.

It works if you are patient and diligent with sunscreen
from New York, NY
It works for me, after 6 weeks of applying the product all over the face minor dark discolorations are completely gone and less minor brown marks are fading. I had IPL to remove the very dark sun spots but for the minor discolorations this product works very well. I am diligent about sunscreen and stay away from the sun rays whenever possible. I use this product in conjuction with Paula's 1% retinol 3 to 4 times weekly and 15% C vitamine daily. I follow with one of Paula's serum and a thick layer of their moisturizer/sunscreen.

No difference :(
from Vancouver, BC Canada
About Me Beauty Conscious
I've been using this Dark Spot Eraser during the day along with the Resist Skin Brightening Treatment for over a year now and the dark spots have not faded... In fact, more have developed. I am Asian and very fair skinned. I don't go out in the sun, wear Moisture Boost SPF 30 Moisturizer under my make up every day, year round, wear sunglasses year round and wear a hat or carry a sun umbrella in the summer. I also use Resist Dark Spot Eraser and Resist 25% Vitamin C Treatment in the evenings. What am I doing wrong? None of them work!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

The only product that works
By Natalie T.
A professional in the skincare industry in both New York and now in Paris, I have tried multiple products to help with dark spots. This is the BEST product I have ever used on my skin, hands down. I no longer have any breakouts, my skin tone is even and bright, and the texture is soft and smooth. Living in Paris, I bulk order this product while I'm in the US, and have bought it for all of the women in my family. I cannot live without it. Just hoping one day Paula's Choice will ship to France!

Not for me
By Geneva H.
Got this for certain areas where I have sun spots. I didn't notice a difference even after the whole tube. In fact, because it makes your skin more photosensitive, I was afraid this was doing more harm than good! I think, though, that it's just because I was looking at my spots every day so they seemed more obvious with time. I have sensitive skin, so I feel like it's only fair to give 2-stars because it didn't irritate me in any way. It definitely didn't work, though. Trying 25% Vit-C now!

Great for my acne
By Ann K.
I love Paula's Choice samples sizes! That's how I first tried this product and within three days I noticed a reduction in the redness of my acne. I have fair skin and had acne on my cheeks and jaw before using this product. I ordered the full size and have been using it daily for a month and my acne is gone. The acne spots(dark pink/purple pigmentation) were lighter - but not gone. Then I received a sample of the Clinical 1% Retinol Treatment and that really helped my spots to disappear.

By L F.
I received this as a sample. Unfortunately this one was a fail. I applied to clean skin and the gel took a while to set as it still felt damp and sticky. then I applied the mattifying sun screen which I love. Then waited for that to dry a bit. Then I applied my foundation. This where it got ugly. All of a sudden the foundation and products started to peel away, so there was this flaky mess on my cheekbones. I had to rewash my face and reapply all without the gel. I guess it is just for night use.

This Stuff WORKS!
I'm giving it 4 Stars due to the tube packing, which is a bit messy to use AND which can let air into the product when being squeezed out. An airless pump tube would be great. Next, I've had this product for about 2 weeks now and I'm starting to see a difference on my face. My skin is olive/brown - depends on the weather. From time to time I get inflamed whiteheads which lead to dark spots and within this short period of time, BAM!! those spots - looking less dark, skin tone - cleaner/smoother.

My fair skin has numerous dark spots all over my face, and large patches along my jawline. Samples of this showed improvement almost immediately, so I bought the full size to replace my BHA 2% gel. I don't expect my dark spots to disappear overnight, but they are certainly fading and the texture of my skin is much improved. Wish it came in a larger size for those of us who must use it all over the face, rather than as a spot treatment. I also use 15% vitamin C for a one-two punch.
