Bad smell, burnt my skin, won't buy again
from Tualatin, Oregon
Comments about RESIST Weekly Resurfacing Treatment 10% AHA - 2 oz:
I have many of Paula's products and really like them. This product when first applied smells like fish. It seems to eventually go away, but it's bad. I'm single so no problem, but if you have a partner they may object.I used it this product once a week for months with no problems. Then last month on two separate occasions I applied it at night and in the morning it was like I had a sun burn. My face was red and burned. It went away in a couple days, I was able to cover it with foundation, but it scared me. I threw it out, not taking any chances.I also didn't notice it making much of a difference when it didn't irritate my skin.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

WOW! Such a Glow!
I'm extremely happy with PC products, using them about 7 weeks, and didn't expect another extreme improvement in my skin, as I did in the beginning. Now, I wait to see results from the serums and other actives. Well, then I tried the AHA 10%! The next day my face was so clear and even-toned! These effects were so very obvious due to the bright glow that my face now had. This is a great one! So, I used it two nights in a row and peeled a little bit. I will have to hold myself back and apply it perhaps every second or third night.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Would buy again, absolutely
from Boston, land of the snow
Not everything works, THIS works. This works so well that I had a facial microdermabrasion done and there was nothing to exfoliate. Paula needs to sell this in a vat for the body..
Service and delivery comments:
Service is always outstanding
from Jacksonville, NC
I have VERY sensitive, normal to dry skin with some texture from past breakouts. I've been using this twice a week on Wed and Sun. I always know I'll have great skin on Thurs and Mon! Noticeable difference in the smoothness and a reduction in the dark patches from sun damage on my skin in the morning. I've been using PC products for the last 15 years and couldn't be more happy with them!
Prompt deliver, excellent customer service!
Helps reveal really fresh & healthy skin
from New York
I've used this about 2x's so far in the last couple of weeks and I really like it. Even better the 2nd time around! I only use it 1x a week at night and it really helps to slough & lift away the dead skin from the week to reveal a fresh looking face. It tingled my face slightly, but quickly dissipated. Will be using & purchasing again.
Still using the same bottle a year out
from Yorkshire, UK
I use this primarily in the winter months because my skin cannot handle Retin-A during the winter when it starts to crack and needs serious moisturizer. During the summer months, I use this about every two weeks. For me just the 10 minutes on and rinse off was enough. I didn't see any difference between wearing it overnight and just doing a short treatment once a week. I prefer this AHA over the BHA, but that's because it just works for me this way.

I use this twice a week. I love that I can put this on at night and wake up with softer, smoother, better looking skin. It does make my skin feel a bit sticky but when using it before bed it really is not a big deal.

Smooth, texture free skin - yes please!

About Me Beauty Conscious
I've been afraid of Glycolic in the past, but it turns out I need it! This product has made the biggest difference in my skin IN ONE USE! I decided to try the wash off method. I put saturated a cotton pad and applied all over my face (even my rosacea areas) and left on for only 8 minutes. I washed it off with a little bit of cleanser and I immediately noticed how smooth my skin was. I battle texture and comedomes on a daily basis as my pores are enlarged. I woke up the next morning and the texture on my forehead was gone! Also my pores were smaller and my skin tone was more even. I was amazed. It even shrunk my cystic time of the month blemish on my chin that I have been trying to get it to come to a head for a couple of days already. I will keep this in my weekly routine forever!

I had used this for 4~5months.
from Colorado Springs, CO
About Me Minimalist
I was using this product every night at the beginning. And a month later I started to apply it on my face once every 3~4 days or a week. But when I started to use 1% retinol, I had to stop using this since it was hurting my skin so bad. It seemed It worked great eliminating the dead cells. But it did (87%)nothing for my black heads and sun spots. And I think I prefer using lower AHA every day to using this one once a week. For me it seems that way works better on my skin.

Mystery bumps: Vanished.
from Alberta, Canada
Both my husband and I have been using PC products for several years. I've had moderate success, but it was not until I started using this exfoliant with niacinamide and hyaluronic acid, I really understood how amazing things could be. I have had a small flesh colored bump between my eyebrows for the past four or five years. It just appeared, I don't know what caused it. I assumed it was a mole or ingrown hair or something and never saw a dermatologist. It bothered me, but what could I do? Two applications of using this product once a week (plus retinol, BHA and other AHAs) and the bump opened up, oozed for two days ... and is now gone from my face. Everywhere else, my tone is consistent and my skin has never felt this bump-free. EVER. I have the worst blackheads! It literally resurfaced my skin. Applying face cream and foundation is so smooth now. I can feel the difference. Where I used to touch my nose and chin to feel the bumps, I know can't stop touching because they are so smooth. If AHA doesn't irritate your skin, work your way up to this and give it a spin. It was too much for my husband's poor sensitive skin to use weekly but he'll get around to it again sometime soon, I'm sure. I'm currently drafting an email to family members who suffer from the same blackheads and large pores I do because they need to know.
