Helps reveal really fresh & healthy skin
from New York
Comments about RESIST Weekly Resurfacing Treatment 10% AHA - 2 oz:
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.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

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.

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.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

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.

Not For Me
By Catherine W
I am 27 with combination, acne prone and sensitive skin. The first time I used this product, it worked wonderfully. I left it on overnight and my skin felt wonderful for the whole following week. The second time I used it, my skin felt slightly irritated. I took a Benadryl that night for other reasons. I just used it for the third time and had to wash it off after just a few minutes. My skin is beyond irritated right now. And I know myself well enough to know it is an allergic reaction. Unfortunately, I have no way to tell which ingredient I am reacting to. I am so sad and disappointed. I wanted so badly for this product to work for me. I am sure it works for others and I am so happy for them and extremely jealous.

About Me Beauty Expert
This product is strong--it might be the strongest exfoliant Paula's Choice makes (if there's a stronger one, let me know!). My skin is incredibly sensitive and turns red at the lightest touch. My pores seem to clog quite easily despite having facials regularly, so I'm also prone to sebaceous hyperplasia and milia. I use this exfoliant at night, and as often as every other night during the summer. A cotton ball or pad makes it easy to apply and a little goes a very long way. It does turn my skin red but by morning it looks radiant and even. While BHA is better for large pores and blemishes, this really keeps my pores clear and evens out some of my sun spots/freckles. I also forego other moisturizers and products if possible, letting this product work its magic by itself, going back to my C Booster and Hyaluronic acid booster the following night. I used to have a handful of AHA/BHA/Glycolic/Lactic acid peels in my arsenal but this is my one and only now. Try a sample if you're worried about it being too strong.

I had the same problem as Jim. I usually use 2% bha. Gave this a try and woke up to a face full of blind pimples and weird red bumps the following day. I'm scared to use it again.
Highly recommend !
I received a trial of this awhile ago and used over night. In the morning I was shocked at how nice my makeup went on and how fresh and vibrant my skin looked. I kept this product on my "to buy" list. I now will not be without it. I tried all sorts of products and treatments to help me freshen up my skin. I was getting fine wrinkles I had no glow and my makeup even with a trial of high end primers looked flat and wouldn't sit nice on my skin. After the first time using this again my skins feel amazing I am so happy, a have so many compliments and one my patients even asked where I got my boxtox done! My skin is plump glowing and I couldn't be happier. Well done Paula's choice I can't wait to explore all your amazing product.
