Smooth, even skin tone, less sebaceous filaments
About Me Beauty Conscious
Comments about RESIST Weekly Retexturizing Foam 4% BHA - 1.5 oz:
I LOVE this product, which I use once a week (I also use BHA 9% daily). This product, more than any I've tried, smooths my normally bumpy skin. It also helps loosen extremely stubborn sebaceous filaments AND reduces post-acne hyperpigmentation just with one application. I am so appreciative of this because the only other product that touched these issues is tretinoin, which ruined my skin -- made it dull, enlarged scars and pores, just made it a mess. That this product does none of that, instead using the power of safe, calming salicylic acid is a minor miracle. And I adore that these products are never, ever tested on animals -- that is as important a criteria to me as any other.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

'OMG' A great product to battle acne

About Me Minimalist
Of all the PC products I use and have purchased (a lot), this is my favorite. I'm not sure I can do this product justice. I use the 2% BHA liquid only a morning and night daily basis. But I append to that usage this product when:-I feel a pimple coming-I've been bad and my skin is about to speak up-I need to exfoliate that dry dull skin-stubborn blackheads that I couldn't get out with the 8% BHA-and though it doesn't go on this list, I've noticed my pores cleaning up and maybe shrinking.The only con I can think of is the smell. It has a unique smell for the first couple of minutes but then I can't smell it or I've gotten use to it. The smell reminds me of seafood.I don't believe in magical and overnight skincare sells, but (for me) the benefits have been so drastic and dramatic with this product.

I found this product very, very irritating! I don't usually have sensitive skin, so I tried it 3 times just to be sure it was the product and not something else. Time 1) Next day my skin was a bit red, warm and irritated, but went away in 1-2 days. Time 2) Same thing, only not quite as much irritation so I waited a few weeks and tried again. Time 3) Awful irritation, my skin actually felt like it was chemically burned! Ended up with a layer of dead skin that took a week to fully flake off (in that week my skin looked like I aged 20 years due to the dry/dead skin). Glad to hear this product works for some people, but I guess I am not one of them. I will be returning it for a refund or credit!

Tried this on advice with a chat representative. I was looking for something to help reduce pores, and generally brighten, tighten complexion. Didn't have much luck with the Resist 2% treatment, and was willing to try one more product. I've been using twice a week at night. I have to say it's pretty amazing. My complexion looks bright, smooth, and generally totally glowing. I don't have a huge problem with wrinkles or lines, but even what I do have is smoother. I'm not sure how things will progress as I use it for a longer period of time, but so far, I couldn't be happier. The smell is the smell. Goes away quickly, and that shouldn't stop anyone from giving this a try.

This is the first review of any beauty product, cosmetic or otherwise, that i have ever written. this stuff is SO. GOOD. I have really tough skin that can take retin-a, BP treatments & this 4% BHA daily. I've had the 2% liquid for the longest time with little to no differences noticed. Bought this on a whim and thank goodness i did!! I put it on nightly and my face looks almost poreless now! dark spots are lightening faster than before as well. the smell is admittedly pretty bad BUT it fades after a few minutes while the results and beautiful skin stay through the next day - or longer! very, very happy with this.
Almost perfect, but it stinks
from Oklahoma City, OK
I'm in my mid-40s and dealing with crazy hormones. I've been breaking out for the first time in years. (They never tell you that in some ways, puberty repeats itself later on.) This does help to unclog my pores, and my skin looks more radiant the next morning. The foam texture is easy to work with, and you need only a small amount, so the small bottle lasts quite awhile. I have experienced no irritation, but I use only once or at most twice a week. But the smell. I thought reviewers were exaggerating. They aren't. It smells like dead fish, and the smell lingers a bit. I follow with the Hydralight moisturizer, which has a pleasant cucumber scent that counteracts the dead fish a little bit. Sadly, PC is discontinuing that product. Other than the smell, this is great.

Smells like rotten fish but only for a few minutes and then when you wake up it's like your skin has been reborn. I like to use a gel moisturizer after I apply and then when I wake up my skin is super soft!My skin, at it's worst, is red, dull and acne prone but not if I use this every week.
from Dallas, TX
This product really gives results. I would use the 2% Resist BHA Liquid every night except I would use this on Wednesday nights. Then on thursdays my skin would be so soft, and I did "peel" (more like flake) a little bit by the end of Friday but my skin was probably in the best condition it's been even compared to using prescribed treatments from my D/CS differin , epiduo, and some antibiotics for some years. If you have an issue with rough skin, forehead wrinkles, and serious forehead/temple area acne.

from SF Bay Area
I use this only to treat my moderate/severe Keratosis Pilaris on my arms, and it has worked wonders!! I have very fair skin, so I have issues with redness associated with my KP. This is the only product that I have found to address redness. I use it once weekly at night, and my skin had noticeably improved the morning after my first use. I have only been using the product a for a few weeks, but my skin is so much better. I am flaunting bare arms for the first time in years! It does tend to dry my skin out. I use Resist Weightless Body Treatment With 2% Beta Hydroxy Acid daily, so the dryness isn't much of a problem. The only issue I have is the smell. I smell like a fish market when I apply the product, but it quickly disappears and can't really be smelled by other people unless they are extremely close to you and in your personal space.I am willing to tolerate the smell because the results on my skin are so amazing! For keratosis pilaris, I cannot recommend this product highly enough.

Ordered this product back in January, once I received it started using once a week (Fridays). The first 2-3 uses were ok, no major issues other than the fishy smell of the product, ( which fades after a while). The 4th week I tried the product within 2 days my face became very itchy then would subside...the following week when I used it ( same thing). I stopped using for about 2 weeks...decided to give the product another shot, used it Sunday night, woke up itching....I'm sure this may be a great product for some, but the ingredients and my skin "DID NOT GET ALONG" ...
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
