Not thrilled.. no results
Comments about RESIST Skin Resurfacing AHA Set - Complete Kit:
My boyfriend and I have been using this for over 2 months now. We were hoping that it would help to reduce his wrinkles and to make us both look more youthful. At first, we thought it was actually working, but now it's pretty obvious that it was just wishful thinking. We haven't seen a difference. In fact, I found a new wrinkle on him! I'm not sure if AHA is right for us. I had ordered the 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant sample and it did wonders for me overnight, so I'll try ordering a bottle of that once we're through with this. I would not recommend this.
Customer Service Response: Thank you for your review. We are sorry to hear you have not noticed better results. The amount of time it will take to see improvement really can vary from person to person and ultimately depends on the extent of the condition or concerns they are trying to address. Some consumers will notice results promptly while others will notice results over a period of time such as months. Exfoliation is certainly important to help minimize fine lines and wrinkles but in order to provide more of a benefit you would need to add in more product to make it a complete anti-aging routine. Please contact customer care so that we may discuss your skin type and suggest the best routine of products to try to offer a more noticeable difference.

I have been using these products for a few weeks, but they seemed to make me break-out. How disappointing.
Customer Service Response: Thank you for your review. We are sorry to hear of your experience with this product. While this response is not typical, we do understand that each customer is uniquely different in how they will respond to products or ingredients. This along with everyday environmental factors can sometimes play a part in how someone will ultimately respond to a product or combination of products. For that reason, we have located your account information and applied an in house credit for the product which may be used on a future phone order. We suggest trying a BHA exfoliant which is able to penetrate the pores in order to prevent blemishes. Please contact customer care with any questions.
Not sure it's doing anything, and hard to put on
I don't know if I just need more time to adjust, but these products still sting a little to use (not outrageously painful or anything, but definitely stronger than just a tingle), and don't really seem to be doing anything. I also don't really understand how to put on the weekly resurfacing treatment. It's got the viscosity of water; how am I supposed to realistically measure out a dime-sized amount, and then get all that product from my cupped palm to my face, in an even layer? I just slap it on and try to spread it as fast as I can, but it's suboptimal, as application methods go. That said, I will keep using this set and see if time gives me better results and less sting.
Customer Service Response: Thank you for sharing your experience, Claire! It seems you are having trouble figuring out how to apply the RESIST 10% AHA: its liquid formula is what gives it its potency, and you may apply it with a cotton pad, or dispense into your palm, smooth your hands together to dispense and them smooth over your face to apply! Either way works just as well. However, if you have uncomfortable stinging, it is best to discontinue. If you like, we would be happy to process a refund for you, just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will make the arrangements!

Skin Looks and Feels Amazing
All of Paula's skin care products have been really great for me. I use the Resist line and am thrilled with the results but I especially love the Weekly Skin Resurfacing Lotion. I use it twice weekly and although my skin looks wonderful I can see even more improvement the next day. I highly recommend this line and this product.
Ok....but not great
I have been using this product in over 2 months now... and I can honestly say that I do not notice a difference besides having more dryness of skin. But of course that is to be expected with these products. I still have wrinkles and dark spots that wont fade. But I will continue to use this until the bottles are empty.
Customer Service Response: Thank you for your review. We are sorry to hear you have not noticed better results. The amount of time it will take to see improvement really can vary from person to person and ultimately depends on the extent of the condition or concern they are trying to address as well has how they are using the products. Some consumers will notice results promptly while others will notice results over the course of a few weeks or months. Ultimately, we would love for you to continue use the products to see how they will work for you but in the meantime will credit you for the products and encourage you to contact customer care so that we may discuss your skin type and how the products were being used.
this is not bad, unfortunately, it does ball out if i pair it with the AHA Lightening Lotion
Customer Service Response: Thank you for your comments. Both the RESIST Skin Resurfacing & Smoothing System products as well as the RESIST Remarkable Skin Lightening Lotion contain an AHA exfoliant. When using both products at the same time, if applied over the entire face, this can cause irritation. If the textures together are balling up it may be due to how you are applying them. If you would like to contact our customer care team we are more than happy to discuss some different options for you. We look forward to assisting you and helping you to find the best products for your skin!
Smooth Flawless Skin
This product truly does resurface your skin! My skin is smooth and flawless looking from using this product combo.
This was the first PC products I have ever used and I must say, they are nothing short of a miracle. I am in my early 30s, have had acne since my teens, have tried EVERYTHING and nothing has ever worked as quickly or as effectively. My skin has improved incredibly in just over a week's time - the texture 1000x smoother (I was also using a scrub most days - I have tough skin), my breakouts are less, and hyperpigmentation (my biggest issue) has dramatically lessened. And so affordable! Trust me, I've spent thousands of dollars on Rx creams as well as the best designer serums and PC is the best by far. The daily smoothing treatment smells like Mr. Bubbles which is such a treat lol! My only issue is that the pump for the daily smoothing treatment was broken upon arrival of my package and I have to shake the product towards the top in order to pump it out.
Customer Service Response: Thank you for the wonderful review! We are sorry to hear about your cap arriving broken. Please know while this can happen from time to time it is not typical. We are sending a replacement out to you right away. If you have any questions please feel free to contact our customer care team. We are always happy to help!
RESIST Skin resurfacing
I do love this system, I've been using for a long time, along with the BHA 2% liquid alternating depending on how much congestion I have. I am a licensed Esthetician and love PC products, I do have to disagree with daily exfoliation though, in my opinion and personal/professional experiences it's too much. Everyone's skin is different, but PC products are a good choice.Love having access to product reviews and have referred many clients to Paula's Choice..
A Match Made in Heaven
By Brianna V.
Oh my gosh, it's a slippery slope! You start with just one PC product and love it so much that you try another, and another, and before you know it the only thing more impressive than your collection of PC products is your FLAWLESS skin! These two exfoliants are just wonderful for tackling sun damage, fine lines and dullness. I use the 2% BHA gel at night and alternate with the 10% Weekly AHA about 2 or 3x per week. I use the 5% daily AHA during the daytime and it has a beautiful, silky texture that absorbs quickly with a matte finish and works REALLY well under makeup.
