Seems to cause breakouts
By Leslie K
About Me Beauty Conscious
Comments about RESIST Weekly Resurfacing Treatment 10% AHA - 2 oz:
I received this product in early December & have used it weekly for the last 5 weeks. I have mostly dry skin. I always seem to break out a bit after using it. It's not a big breakout, but a few clogged pores. Typically I do not have below the surface type issues with my skin, so I thought the AHA would be a good solution, but it seems to be causing a little more harm than good.
Service and delivery comments:
Delivery took about 6-7 days.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Hard on sensitive skin
Very hard on skin. I use it once a week, but had to discontinue use as my skin would burn and would go all red when applied. It ended up cracking my skin as well and creating red lines due to the potency. Also smells fishy. I would not recommend it.

I really liked the daily BHA, and received this as a gift. I will say the foam is nice, and it doesn't get in your eyes. The only strong (and I do say strong) CON is that this has a very off-putting, almost intolerable, odor. It dissipates after 30 seconds or so, but it's kinda intense. That being said, what a great product that does what it promises: re-surface, helps with scarring, clarity and texture.I get easily irritated skin, and tolerated this with no problem.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great Product if they can keep it in stock
This is a great product. It would be nice if they can figure out how to keep it in stock. I can buy the dual kit whenever I want but by itself is never in stock when there is a sale. I tried the BHA and it is not nearly as effective for my skin.

This is the best I've tried, ever...and I've tried them all! It is strong,but it is what I want in this type of product. Amazing exfoliation, brightening of skin/tone, clarity. Use atleast 1x a wk,but not daily. 3x is best, for me. For me,best to use at night, alone or moisturize in most dry areas, and a good moisturizer the next morning. Keeps my skin clear and bright. It is strong, but that's what I wanted--strong enough to do what it's supposed to do! If never used this type product, start with lower % or if very sensitive skin, may not be for you. I love it.

Didn't work for me
from Somerville, MA
About Me Beauty Expert
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 ):
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!

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.
from Charleston, SC
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.
