I just threw it out
Comments about RESIST Weekly Retexturizing Foam 4% BHA - 1.5 oz:
I've had this product for about 8 months. It was working. I used it about a month ago and ago an awful reaction that resembled a chemical burn. I thought it was because I mixed it. After trying it agin about a month ago, same reaction but worse. My entire face fluffed up so I couldn't even put eye makeup on. My under eyes and entire face became red itchy and swollen. Again, I thought it was because I mixed it. I just used this product for the last time. I just woke up with the same reaction and It is even worse. Please don't do that I did and keep trying. Throw it out!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I purchased this product quite a while ago however have only really used it twice. The first time I used it I had somewhat of a reaction however thought it may be a fluke or be due to other contributing factors. So on Sunday (months after initial application), I applied the product at night. The next day when I woke up my skin was extremely red with smal bumps covering my face. By the following day my face was very swollen and itchy. Three days later and my under eyes are still swollen. Very disappointed!

Red, swollen, itchy, burning
from Ithaca, NY
I loved the first bottle I bought (around 1 year ago) --- it seemed to make a difference in my skin. The second bottle, however, caused red swollen burns (also itched) that took 3 or so days to disappear. I stopped using and tried again a few months later --- same reaction except much worse. Luckily, I had only used the product on part of my face. I'd suggest testing overnight on a SMALL patch of skin before using.
I love this product!
from Scottsdale, AZ
I use this product before I go to bed, after cleansing. I can use it 3 times a week without any sensitivity- I know the directions are just once a week. Basically, overnight, this product will erase my oily, acne, pore clogging, damaged looking skin. Its like getting a reboot for my face. I love it!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Leave on for Few Hours, NOT overnight
from Vancouver, Canada
About Me Beauty Conscious
BHA products are tricky for me. While they are effective, the side effect is usually dry flaky skin and additionally red at the worst. I have dry to normal skin but large pores and blackheads on my nose and under the lip area so BHA products are a must. For this product, at first, I did once a week, left overnight - basically as instructed. NOPE. I got dry, red flaky skin. It's too powerful for me to use overnight. (Note: it does clean pores, and greatly reduces blackheads on my nose every time I use it)So I experimented using it as a treatment mask, playing with how long to leave it on before rinsing with just plain water (than putting on usual products). 6 hours is the same as leaving it overnight for me. Around 3 hours, I will get a dry patch or two the next day but that's manageable. I found my ideal time is 2-3 hours and it's still as effective without the side effects. Using this with the BHA lotion has really improved my skin especially the stubborn nose blackheads I've had since puberty are finally visibly going away.I would recommend anyone that has had my reaction leaving it overnight, to instead use it as a mask for few hours instead.

I didn't have any reaction to this for the first month then all of a sudden my eyes will puff up and eyelids become itchy when I use it even though I am not putting it near my eyes.

burned pretty badly this time
from St. Petersburg, FL
This is my second bottle of this product, which I used to really like. however, on my last two uses (yes, I did it twice) it burned the daylights out of my skin. I thought it was "operator error" first time and waited a month. Now just recovering from peeling, red skin and matching welts under each eye area. It's been three days and my skin is still tight and a little roughed-up. I like the other products but really horrified by this one!

Paula's Choice is my favorite skincare line. I know that when I try something new, that it will provide the best chances for desired results without any reactions. This product was one of my favorites and did repurchase; however, the most recent bottle, although it smelled fine coming out of the bottle, as soon as it was on my skin for a few seconds reeked of something rotten. I called Customer Service and they gladly sent out a new bottle (thank you!) but unfortunately it was with the same result. It does go away once absorbed but not soon enough for my liking.

Unable to Tolerate
from North Central USA
Unable to use product after trying twice and suffering some type of allergic reaction. Tons of tiny water blister-like eruptions on my face. Returned.

I've been using Paula's products for years and have never had a problem, however this product really irritated my skin. I tried it twice a few weeks apart to make sure this was what caused the problem. The morning after applying this my undereye area became red and swollen. By the following night my face had developed tiny bumps, patchy redness, and itchy. It took a few days to clear up. I assume this is some kind of allergic reaction to an ingredient in the product. I've used other products with salicylic acid so I don't think it's that.
