OUTSTANDINGLY BENEFICIAL TREATMENT & SUPERBLY LUXURIOUS
By Beauty ME
About Me Beauty Expert
Comments about RESIST Weightless 2% BHA Body Treatment - 7 oz:
I purchased this treatment as a sample and immediately loved the luxurious texture and subtle, gentle fresh fragrance. I was very skeptical as I have tried a lot of high-end prescription, clinical, and skin treatment creams, lotions, powders, and Rx pills to help with the very large, noticeably large bumps and raised bumps on the back and underside of my arms and on both legs and ankles. I was absolutely astounded at the almost overnight dramatic IMPROVEMENT in my Keratitis Pilaris and in the literal shrinking, lessened bumps and pores. Before, it really looked like I had huge red pores and bumps up and down my legs and arms. NO MORE!!! This exfoliant is extremely gentle and luxurious to the point of being almost unbelievable in how it works so spectacularly when it is so gentle. I highly urge everyone to try this out. I don't have KP or unsightly bumps on my forearms and upper thighs and torso, back, or chest. But since using this treatment my whole body is much, much silkier, smoother, with less noticeable cellulite and no side effects, no redness, no excessive exfoliation. I recently badly broke my ankle again and spent many months with various casts and surgeries with my leg fully mobilized in a hard shell cast. When my cast came off, I was stunned at the difference between my lower legs. My right less was smooth, silky, gorge0us and my other leg had the horribly dreaded K Pilaris and large red pores, very unsightly and awful. My lovely hubbie tenderly shaved my left leg, washed it so nicely and applied this lotion to my leg. Immediately he was impressed with this lotion. He reapplied each night for two nights, the fourth night a break as we were out late, and the next night applied again. I had my appt with my surgeon one week after I had my last surgical cast removed, and he literally did a double-take. He asked my quite quizzically which spa I had been to, and what exact treatments I had received and how much they cost and where, how long, etc. The orthotic technicians also marvelled at my legs. I just smiled and beamed with delight. It was so worth the long wait to see their incredulous reactions to this rapid and dramatic healing on my legs. My physician went out into the waiting room and said thanks to my husband as I told them he applied the cream so gently and thoroughly for the previous six nights. On my following xray appt three weeks later I took my remaining four samples in to the Dr. and the techs. Six weeks later the senior orthotic tech thanked my so profusely and whole-heartedly that it was almost a little embarrassing and funny. My other Dr. (family physician) had commented too a few months later at my "miracle" turn-around with the luxurious spa cream regimen. I told him flat out all about the cream and Paula's Choice skin care and he was very impressed. I continue to use this product two to four times in a two-week period. When this comes on sale I will stockup. My most favourite products of PChoice are this cream, Moisture Boost Hydrating Treatment Cream and the Resist 5% Exfoliant which I just adore. My husband swears by the wonderful and amazing (his words) Clear Extra-Strength Anti-Acne Cream. He wears a full-face sleep mask for his sleep apnea and has had his face clear up so fast and so beautifully when nothing, absolutely nothing helped for 12 long years of bad rashes and inflamed skin from the irritation the CPAP masks can cause. I know how impressed he was as he recently went to visit his best friend and it was the first time he packed his own shaving travel kit. I wanted to know where the Clear Extra Strength Anti Acne Cream was and he laughed on the phone and said, "Sorry, my dear I'll be home soon so you can use it. Richard now swears by it too." And THAT wonderful testament to PChoice products coming from my husband who barely uses any products on his body at all is a truly an amazing statement about how these perfectly formulated products really do help and keep helping couples like us. Thank you so very, very much Paula Begoin, we love you and your products. You truly have very beneficial and wonderous ingredients in your products! Best Regards, Rebecca Bunton in Ontario, Canada. PS: Disclaimer: I paid for and bought these products myself.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Effective if you have the time
By micellar water
from LA, CA
About Me Budget Buyer
It does work on KP, but you have to be consistent and it takes a long time. For me, I had to apply it morning AND night for any results to show. Reapply if you go to the gym everyday. It can get tedious in the morning when you're waiting for it to dry so you can put on your clothes. DO NOT put on your clothes when it's still wet or even just damp. Wait until it's completely dry. I personally like the smell. It smells like melon. It has a nice texture that easily spreads over large areas. It's hard for me to apply on my back so I can't comment on it's effectiveness on bacne.

I have been using this product for couple of weeks now but didn't notice any difference. I have ingrown hair and bumps all over my legs, back of my thighs and some around my knees. My legs got really itchy and stung every time I put the product on. It doesn't burn or itch the back of my thighs where I have a patch of bumpy skin. I have been using it on only back of my thighs and stopped using on my legs. Haven't seen any difference. I am not sure if I am using the product incorrectly or not because I have heard a lot of good things about the product from others.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Can't believe it!
from Chicago, IL
About Me Brand Buyer
My best friend has a strong interest in aesthetics and ordered me 2 samples of this product after I showed her my struggles with acne, redness and acne scarring on my back, shoulders, and chest. I was skeptical. I've gone through a lot with expensive appointments and subscription pills that made me feel sick and did very little to help. I've bought a lot of expensive acne products, thinking I could buy my way to nice skin, but they did practically nothing. I've felt pretty hopeless, hiding my skin. I have skipped spending time with friends outdoors on hot days out of shame. I have lost sleep worried about having to wear a backless dress in a friend's wedding. In just one week of using the sample size packets on back, chest and shoulders, I already have seen dramatic improvements!! I think this really is the stuff my body has been needing and I can hardly believe it. I just bought and received my full size. So impressed by everything so far. Thank you Paula!

Finally, a treatment for body acne that worked. I have blackhead and deep painful acne on my legs forever. Nothing else even changed them. This cream really is great! I have been using for 3 weeks and HUGE difference.

Love this stuff

I love this stuff! It really helps with any blemishes or razor burn and leaves skin smooth - I think it helps even out my skin tone as well. Will continue to use forever!
The best for KP!
By Sue B.
from De Pere, WI
After living with KP on my upper arms for most of my adult life (I am now in my 60's), I never thought anything would get rid of my ugly red bumps. But this 2% BHA Body Treatment really works! I have been a Paula's Choice customer for many years, but had not tried this until my sister told me how well it worked for my niece's KP. Wow, what a difference it had made for me! It took a couple of weeks of daily use, but it has completely cleared up my KP, and I am still using it several times a week to keep it that way. While I don't care for the smell, it does go away completely as it dries, so that has not been a problem. I use it right after my shower on damp skin, and I am a happy, KP-free lady! Thank you Paula!

Fantastic lotion; Just needs a bigger bottle option!
from Alexandria, VA
This is the best exfoliating body lotion I use. For a while I used one of the drugstore exfoliating body lotions on Paula's best of list. While it did the job well (and I still use it during times I can't afford to drop money on the Resist cream) it would leave streaks on my darker clothes and I'd get patches of redness here and there. This lotion does none of that; no red patches, absorbs insanely quick, and it leaves my skin hydrated without stickiness. It also smoothed out my skin, and kept both my acne and KP patches gone. I do beg, and I mean BEG of Paula to please add either a bigger bottle size option or a two bottle value kit or something along those lines. Most people I think use this on patches in their skin, but I need it for my whole body. I only use it two times a week, but even then I can only make a bottle last me a month max.

IT WORKS!!!! SUMMERS USED TO BE EMBARRASSING BUT NO MORE!
By Harley Rider
from Milwaukee, WI
I used to be very embarrassed in the spring/summer with Keratosis Pilaris on my biceps. NO MORE! 2% BHA has literally cured the Keratosis Pilaris on my arms. I do have to keep using it in order to keep the Keratosis Pilaris away but I'm just glad that there is a wonderful Paula's Choice solution for us guys with this issue. Thanks to Paula's Choice I no longer have an issue with Keratosis Pilaris.

from Dallas, TX
I feel a there are a lot of complaints about the smell, fragrance free is the best because fragrance can really irritate your skin. The best skin care products I've used have been fragrance free and smelled like anything from pennies to lunch meat. This product really cleared up my acne and if I had a cyst come up it would be very soothing not to mention, this made my shoulders and upper arms so smooth and baby soft (I showed off to my coworkers). This has a very impressive formula and I like that it has a blend of natural and synthetic moisturizers/emolients .
