    Good for body acne
    • The texture of this product is cosmetically elegant; its light weight and silky. I use this product in conjunction with PC's 4% SA weekly treatment or 2% SA toner on my body to help battle body acne. While 4% SA can be a bit trying on the skin, this body lotion helps to relieve that dryness.

    Worth SIX Star!
    • I wished there was a six star option. This product is genius. It cured acnes on my back and I can feel the skin is getting soft and silky. My back acne started at least ten years ago and I tried many ways but failed. Now something finally worked!

    Ah amazing!
    • This is the BEST lotion ever! I have psoriasis, and the past 5 years developed keratosis pilaris of the upper back and shoulders. It usually gets worse around that time of month, plus I'm in my late thirties probably struggling with changing hormones. Since using the bha liquid followed by this lotion, my psoriasis is very minimal and keratosis pilaris/acne GONE! I would suggest giving these products time to work. Mine healed very quickly, but others may take longer. Stick with it!

    YES! Buy it NOW!
    • I have had keratosis pilaris on my upper arms my entire life & am getting married next year... which of course I've been stressing out about a dress to cover my upper arms. Now, I don't have to worry! This stuff is magical! It did take me about 10-14 days to see results but now my arms are beautiful! So grateful for this product!

    Nothing comes close to this product!
    • I have struggled with keratosis pilaris on my upper arms for years along with very mild acne on my chest etc. and I had always longed for smooth skin in those exposed areas. This product has become my holy grail. I have tried so many things in the past to treat these issues and nothing has come close to this product. I use it after I shower and that's it; it keeps my skin balanced and smooth! Thank you Paula. This lotion is a life saver.

    Great product!
    • For 25 years, I thought that I could only resolve KP with sun exposure, and decided to live with it instead of risk skin cancer. This product proves otherwise! After a month of consistent daily use, my KP is much reduced and my skin is smooth. Highly recommended!

    Better than BP for face
    • I do not have KP - I purchased this treatment for mild facial breakouts. RESIST 2%BHA seems to work better than BP for facial use - I noticed my skin isn't dry/irritated, my skin looks calm and less oily too! I LOVE this as a makeup primer, my powder foundation looks very smooth and has an air brushed effect. My makeup stays on longer. My skin doesn't look oily. Makeup looks fabulous. HG status!!

    I can't live without it
    • I just have to get on here and give it the best review. I have been suffering from keratosis polaris my entire life! I went to the doctor and got a prescription a few years back and I was putting lactate on my skin! Ewww not to mention all the animal testing that goes on. I recently found this product from a youtuber and in the past few months, my kp has gotten so much better! Not perfect, but I'm okay with less than perfect skin. Thank you so much paulas choice!

    Great Results!
    • I have been using this product for the past 3 months and it works great! I apply it on my chest, back, and shoulders and have noticed significantly clearer and softer skin. I get the rare breakouts on occasion but nothing compared to what I used to have. It smells clean and fresh and works great as a lotion for areas that need it. Love this product and will buy more.

    KP Keratosis Pilaris - Bumps on Arms & Back of Thighs
    • I have always suffered from Keratosis Pilaris and have found that this is the only cream I can use that gets rid of them while hydrating. I use it on my upper legs/thighs and upper arms (triceps area) daily and find if I put it on while a tad damp, a little goes a long way.

    Eh.
    • It took forever (months) to start to get any sort of result after applying every night. It started to peel a bit, but then even that stopped. Gonna try the AHA, I guess.

    Smoother than I've ever been!
    • I got this because i was hoping to smooth out the skin on my upper arms - and it worked fast! I use it on my legs as well. My skin tone is still uneven and I still have noticeable red spots (hair follicles) on my arms and legs, but the skin is smoother and softer than it's ever been. I use it on my back and shoulders and it's cleared up the blemishes in those areas as well. I love having something that moisturizes AND exfoliates - thanks for another breakthrough!

    Great for acne marks on the body!
    • I wouldn't change a thing about this product. It really is lightweight and fast absorbing but leaves your skin looking just a tiny bit smoother right when you apply it. It seems to tone down redness and soothe my skin immediately as well. It smells like green melon if anybody wants to know. It has faded my PIH marks in just two weeks and hasn't caused any problems despite my dry, sensitive skin.

    Can I use this on my face?
    • I was wondering if I can use this on my face or would it be better to use the Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant instead. I have KP on my face and have been using the Skin Perfecting 2% Gel for a few months now and although my face got smoother, I still have those rash-like bumps on my cheeks. I also have combination skin and blackheads on my nose and close to the nose. Have also been using Skin Balancing products (cleanser, toner and face cream) with ok (not perfect) results. Many thanks.

    no result on bacne
    • I'me 40 and suffer from bacne since my teen age. Those who have this problem know how downbeating it is, especially in sommer, when you can't put on no dress, no top with an open back. I've set many hopes on this body treatment. I'me using it once a day after morning shower since 3 weeks and there are no results. Disappointed.

    Hoping for it to work
    • been using the bha lotion for about 6 months now. I've seen ok-ish results and I can wear the lotion in the morning in this humid climate. I'm trying this formula for my face and my body. Love how it settles into the skin and I can definitely wear this lotion in the morning without looking like a greaseball. plus, the melon scent is sooo nice. crossing my fingers.

    Didn't work for my KP
    • I bought this as an alternative to Dermadoctor's KP Duty, which worked wonders for the KP on my legs, but it comes with a hefty price tag. I used it intensely on my arms as a test a few years ago, and the KP there is still much better than it used to be. I then tried this lotion on my legs in the hope that it would work, and while it at least made my skin feel very nice, it had no effect whatsoever on my KP. I'm going to try to the AHA lotion instead to see if that works.

    Didn't work for me and it's smelly
    • Although I had a little relief from KP on my arms when I used this product twice a day, it didn't work for me as well as Cerave SA, and costs significantly more. It may be unscented but has a fragrance which is unpleasant. This is my first PC disappointment in 10 years - AHA may be a better choice for me. For now, I'll stick with the Cerave SA.

    Thanks for your review! We're sorry this product didn't make your skin as happy as others from us that you've come to rely on over the years. The scent of all of products is never from added fragrance but rather the final scent of how the ingredients smell when mixed together. With lower-pH products like BHA exfoliants, it can be trickier to achieve what most would consider a non-discernible smell without actually adding pure fragrance.

    I was really hoping it would work!
    • I really wanted to like this product because of the economical size and awesome non-irritating ingredients, as well as the omission of fragrance. My skin is sensitive and combination with an oily blackhead and whitehead prone T-zone. I am somewhat sensitive to benzoyl peroxide, and don't like the bleaching effect,so I went with this. The BHA didn't irritate my skin at all, however, it didn't really (as far as I can tell) get rid of anything. :( Oh well, maybe AHA will be effective for me?

    Happy Skin
    • Enlarged pores and all the trouble that goes with them in every possible way on the face and middle upper back. The worst ongoing case of spots and scarring folliculitis on the legs for years. Till this. This works and is well worth every penny spent. Face and body every evening then the Resist 10% body lotion/retinol body treatment combo every morning for four months and the difference is amazing. Pores are normal sized and clean. Legs are clear of spots and scars are beginning to heal.

What makes this product unique?
Resist Weightless Body Treatment is truly a one-of-a-kind product! This anti-aging body lotion contains an effective amount of salicylic acid (BHA) formulated at a pH range (3.2-3.6) that allows the BHA to have superior exfoliating properties. As a result, it works to soften rough, bumpy areas, ease dryness, help clear breakouts from the neck down, stimulate collagen production and banish dullness for improved skin tone. This silky, lightweight moisturizer sets to a soft matte finish and is packed with proven antioxidants and potent anti-irritants to keep skin youthful and healthy. This specialized body product will reveal younger-looking skin with a renewed firmness, refined texture and fewer discolorations from sun damage.

Who is this product for?
Resist Weightless Body Treatment is great for anyone who is prone to breakouts or struggling with signs of aging anywhere on their body. It is also extremely effective at relieving red bumps and rough areas on the body (keratosis pilaris). This silky body lotion also works to improve skin tone and texture, both of which contribute to a more youthful look.

NOTE: Those allergic to aspirin (acetylsalicylate) should not use products containing salicylic acid (beta hydroxy acid).

What's the difference between AHA and BHA exfoliants? Do I need both?

When properly formulated, both AHAs and BHA are brilliant options for exfoliating the surface of skin. You do not need to use both, but some people like alternating. Both AHA and BHA work to reduce wrinkles, stimulate collagen, and firm skin but each has its special qualities you'll want to consider when deciding which one to use:

  • AHAs are preferred for sun-damaged and dry skin because they exfoliate on the surface of skin and have the added benefit of also improving moisture content.
  • BHA is preferred for oily, acne-prone skin and for treating blackheads and white bumps because BHA can get through the oil that's clogging your pores, normalizing the lining of the misshapen pore that contributes to acne.
  • BHA has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial action. Those are two more reasons to use a BHA exfoliant if you have acne or sensitive, reddened skin.
  • Both AHA and BHA work to fight keratosis pilaris ("chicken skin") but BHA has the advantage due to its ability to penetrate the pore lining where these raised, red bumps begin.

If your skin is sun-damaged and you're also struggling with acne or clogged pores, add a BHA product to your routine.

How does Resist Weightless Body Treatment with 2% BHA differ from the Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Exfoliant?

The primary difference is with the base formula. The lotion base of Weightless Body Treatment with 2% BHA is silky and lightweight yet hydrating, and it contains several anti-aging ingredients to help skin from the neck down look and act younger. Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid, Gel, and 2% Beta Hydroxy Acid Lotion contains the same percentage of salicylic acid, but in different bases designed to work with other facial-care products.

Can I use Resist Weightless Body Treatment with 2% BHA on my face?

Yes. In fact, some skin types may prefer the texture of Resist Weightless Body Treatment with 2% BHA for facial use.

I am using Renova/Retin-A on sun-damaged body skin. Is it OK to use this with Resist Weightless Body Treatment with 2% BHA?

There is no reason not to try and see if this works for you and you can always ask the physician who gave you the prescription their opinion. Renova and Retin-A have a completely different benefit for skin than BHA does but both are excellent for anti-aging skincare. BHA exfoliates built up dead skin cells on the surface of skin and in the pore, while the active ingredient in Retin-A and Renova is a cell communicating ingredient that improves the way skin cells are made in the lower layers of skin.
