Didn't work for me

Comments about RESIST Weekly Resurfacing Treatment 10% AHA - 2 oz:
I had high hopes for my first Paula's Choice product, and after reading multiple reviews, thought this product would be right for me. Unfortunately, even using this product 1x weekly broke me out and left my skin red and irritated. As a struggling student, I wish I had used my money to purchase another product ):
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

from Not disclosed
Recently my skin began reacting with a rash and hives to everything...including products that worked for me in the past. I identified an adverse reaction to soy and niacinamide. I haven't been able to care for my skin in sometime because of these reactions. I did find a retinol but my skin was purging do to lack of care and built up dead cells. This stopped that overnight and significantly reduced the peeling. It calmed my skin. My face is soft and smooth. The redness and flushing are gone. This treatment is so amazing and is definitely becoming a permanent part of my skincare routine. I read the ingredients for every PC treatment and found this one. I ordered samples of this, the Moisture Boost cleanser, and the Skin Recovery moisturizer. One use and my skin is calm and clear. What a relief! Already ordered a full size of each. Glad to find these soy and niacinamide free products that work amazingly!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The Incredible Hulk of Exfoliants
About Me Minimalist
This stuff is no joke, and I'd definitely never use it every day: it does sting (just a little) and my skin feels tight and dry afterward until I moisturize. But I am A-OK with that, because as a once-a-week assault on dead, dull skin, it is unparalleled. Does what it says, with a whole lot of chutzpah.

About Me Beauty Conscious
I use this product once or twice a week, but even though I have sensitive skin I would not be scared of upping that to every other night or every night. My results the next morning are fantastic. I do not apply a moisturizer after this, as it is slightly moisturizing itself, and I swear that by morning my skin is soft, plump, hydrated, and rejuvenated. This is my favorite product by Paula.
Exfoliates Like a Dream
When I started using Paula's Choice products, I got both the BHA and AHA exfoliants, to see which would work best. (I found that AHA works better for exfoliating, but if I use it on a daily basis, I get breakouts, so I use BHA for daily use.)I only use this Weekly Resurfacing 10% AHA once a week (which, I guess is what you're supposed to do, LOL). I find that even though my PC BHA exfoliant works great for daily use, the 10% AHA is AWESOME using once a week. (Using it only once a week doesn't break me out.) My skin feels smooth, silky and looks brighter. Wish I could use it twice a week, but oh well. ;)While a little on the pricy side to purchase, a little goes a long way; on a per-use basis, the cost is very reasonable.

As a recent Paula's Choice convert, this was one of the first products I tried. This stuff is unbelievable. I am new to the world of exfoliants-started with Pixi Glow tonic and finally migrated to this. Now I've tried her BHA lotion, BHA liquid, Paula's Choice moisturizers....I am hooked!! This exfoliant will make you glow. It eliminates rough patches, diminishes redness and blotchiness, makes pores look smaller. I have NEVER had my skin look this good. Finally, I think I've found a line of products that works and actually lives up to the hype.

This product is awesome! I struggle with cystic acne and it is so awful and painful. I've had this for some time but decided to try it twice a day just in the areas with upcoming cystic areas. It's clearing and drying. My skin feels so much more healthy! I will decrease once I'm clearedLOVE LOVE LOVE!!!!

I can NOT believe how amazing this product is. It stings just a teeny bit when I put it on, but in the morning I wake up to GLOWING skin. I'm very oily, acne-prone, and have fine lines from the sun. This product has never made me break out and I have to force myself not to use it more than twice a week. I'm a Paula's Choice customer for life!

I used a sample of this last night, and wow! I wasn't expecting it to do much more than the 8% AHA Gel that I've been using, but I put this stuff on (kind of weird compared to the gel, not quite liquid but not quite a gel either) and left it on overnight and when I woke up, my skin was noticeably smoother. My acne has already been clearing from the Resist for Combo skin line but this stuff seemed to get the last bits of irritation and flaking! I only had some new little red pimples forming on my neck and a pretty big nodule, but this AHA bulldozed them overnight! Can't wait to use it again next week!
