Works, but smells SO BAD
from Toronto, ON
About Me Minimalist
Comments about RESIST Weightless 2% BHA Body Treatment - 7 oz:
This lotion does wonders for the KP on my arms and thighs with regular use, but it has SUCH a strong smell that LINGERS FOREVER (over an hour at least). I love Paula's for how effective the products are but also for the fact they are reliably dye and scent free! Why does this product smell so much???
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

About Me Beauty Conscious
I got this product to use on razor/waxing bumps and irritation in my bikini zone. It works wonderfully for that! However I also tried using it for my back acne I get from running. I thought the lotion texture might make it worse, but I'm happy to say that in about a week 90% of my back acne was gone! I did try using this at night as a hand moisturizer, but I think it's not Emoliant enough for that. It kinda left them more dry.

Miracles do happen
I have been struggling with bad red angry bumps on my chest, shoulders, breast area, back and arms. I am going through menopause and my skin has been horrid. I have tried all creams and even prescription cortisone. I on my first week of using this lotion was amazed. My bumps are pretty much gone and my skin looks ten to twenty years younger on my whole chest area. It is truly such a blessing to be able to wear a tshirt that isn't up to my neck. I was so used to covering up that area that I was wearing my husbands tshirts daily. I now am wearing my cute summer tops that show my chest and neck area and am not embarrassed to be seen at the store. I am using many of Paula's products now. I so wish I would have found this whole line years ago. I have only been using this since June of this year. Also, I am using the body retinol cream and I think that and this lotion combined is what has really given me this amazing outcome. I wish I would have taken pics of me before and now to show how impressive this stuff really is. I absolutely can't live without this stuff anymore. If this ever gets discontinued I could seriously see myself paying a chemist or a mad scientist to recreate this. Lol. I am a forever customer now.

As effective as fluid; smells better and easier to use
By Glad I found Paula's Choice
from Glendale Heights, IL
I've been using this for about 6 months because I was looking for a salicylic acid treatment to use for the acne trouble spots on my back and chest (ugh!) without bleaching/staining my clothes and sheets. I was pleasantly surprised to find it smells slightly much better than most of the Paula's products I've tried (not their fault; one of the drawbacks of fragrance-free), but this has a light, floral scent from the ingredients that is in no way overpowering. It's also very lightweight, a huge plus for my oily skin and so far hasn't irritated my skin.I believe it's helped tame the bumpy skin on my back and chest, but unfortunately it hasn't totally eradicated it. =/ But I likely have hormonal acne, and I'm hopeful in the longer term it will help reduce the hyper pigmentation. This is why I have a 4 star rating, because it wasn't the miracle product for me as it was for some.I'll still continue to purchase it though, because I find the lightweight lotion easier to apply than the liquid, and a a bonus it can be used for face and body and for my oily skin the texture of this works better for my face. And as a bonus, it smells nice too!

More money down the drain
from Bonita sprigs, FL
I have tried everything for my KP. Such as coconut oil, am lactin, KP Duty, Glytone kit, microdermabrasion, dry brushing, exfoliating, cod liver oil supplements, vitamin D, vitamin A, creams upon creams upon creams.I bought this product with high hopes after reading all these miraculous reviews from other purchasers, so I thought, I'm convinced! I'll spend the $ & try it...yet again, more money down the drain with no results!I waited until I just about finished an entire bottle before writing a review.Sad to say, it did not work for me. :( It does make my skin "soft" but does not help with the unsightly red bumps that have covered my entire arms & forearms, thighs, and now calves! This is such an annoying condition! I honestly think that there aren't any miracle creams to banish KP, it starts from the inside... which means a proper diet, vitamins, sunshine, exercise.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Amazing, quick results!
I recently received three sample packs of this product and I am so glad I did - I have been battling small bumps/acne on my chest, shoulders, and neck and not even my 10% benzoyl treatment was doing the trick. I noticed it really flares up during hormonal times (of course it does!) and I hate that it controls my wardrobe - so embarrassing! I have only used this product for three days now and I am amazed how well it works. My skin is softer, practically bump and acne free, and so much smoother. I never thought an exfoliant is what I needed but this treatment lotion is amazing and just what I needed. Such a game changer in my life and now I will be for sure buying the full sized product!

Been buying regularly for over three years!
About Me Beauty Expert
I first went to a dermatologist for keratosis pilaris when I was 10 years old, I'm 28 now and still suffering from this skin condition. In the past 18 years I have tried countless remedies for this, things the dermatologist recommended, things I found online, in stores, etc. This product works the best out of everything I've tried over the past 18 years. My case is pretty severe on my upper arms and thighs, this product doesn't make it perfect, but it definitely decreases the appearance of the keratosis pilaris better than any other product I've tried. Like any skin product, you do have to use it on a regular basis, I've found it works best if I use it at morning and at night.
Seems this worked pretty well for me but diligence is key...
from beverly hills, CA
I feel like this lotion has worked pretty well for me- so I'm buying my second bottle now. I use it mainly for the bumpy and rough texture that I've recently been experiencing on my legs (thighs) but also back of arms too. It does need to be used on a regular basis...once I stopped using it seems like the rough texture has came right back. Not sure of there are other reasons for this but I do think this works. For me anyway! The smell is very tolerable for me, I don't hate it. Don't love it either...but it's fine.
i finally found a product that works on the small bumps on my upper arms. it leaves my skin soft and smooth (with daily use), and i now feel comfortable wearing sleeveless tops.

OUTSTANDINGLY BENEFICIAL TREATMENT & SUPERBLY LUXURIOUS
By Beauty ME
I purchased this treatment as a sample and immediately loved the luxurious texture and subtle, gentle fresh fragrance. I was very skeptical as I have tried a lot of high-end prescription, clinical, and skin treatment creams, lotions, powders, and Rx pills to help with the very large, noticeably large bumps and raised bumps on the back and underside of my arms and on both legs and ankles. I was absolutely astounded at the almost overnight dramatic IMPROVEMENT in my Keratitis Pilaris and in the literal shrinking, lessened bumps and pores. Before, it really looked like I had huge red pores and bumps up and down my legs and arms. NO MORE!!! This exfoliant is extremely gentle and luxurious to the point of being almost unbelievable in how it works so spectacularly when it is so gentle. I highly urge everyone to try this out. I don't have KP or unsightly bumps on my forearms and upper thighs and torso, back, or chest. But since using this treatment my whole body is much, much silkier, smoother, with less noticeable cellulite and no side effects, no redness, no excessive exfoliation. I recently badly broke my ankle again and spent many months with various casts and surgeries with my leg fully mobilized in a hard shell cast. When my cast came off, I was stunned at the difference between my lower legs. My right less was smooth, silky, gorge0us and my other leg had the horribly dreaded K Pilaris and large red pores, very unsightly and awful. My lovely hubbie tenderly shaved my left leg, washed it so nicely and applied this lotion to my leg. Immediately he was impressed with this lotion. He reapplied each night for two nights, the fourth night a break as we were out late, and the next night applied again. I had my appt with my surgeon one week after I had my last surgical cast removed, and he literally did a double-take. He asked my quite quizzically which spa I had been to, and what exact treatments I had received and how much they cost and where, how long, etc. The orthotic technicians also marvelled at my legs. I just smiled and beamed with delight. It was so worth the long wait to see their incredulous reactions to this rapid and dramatic healing on my legs. My physician went out into the waiting room and said thanks to my husband as I told them he applied the cream so gently and thoroughly for the previous six nights. On my following xray appt three weeks later I took my remaining four samples in to the Dr. and the techs. Six weeks later the senior orthotic tech thanked my so profusely and whole-heartedly that it was almost a little embarrassing and funny. My other Dr. (family physician) had commented too a few months later at my "miracle" turn-around with the luxurious spa cream regimen. I told him flat out all about the cream and Paula's Choice skin care and he was very impressed. I continue to use this product two to four times in a two-week period. When this comes on sale I will stockup. My most favourite products of PChoice are this cream, Moisture Boost Hydrating Treatment Cream and the Resist 5% Exfoliant which I just adore. My husband swears by the wonderful and amazing (his words) Clear Extra-Strength Anti-Acne Cream. He wears a full-face sleep mask for his sleep apnea and has had his face clear up so fast and so beautifully when nothing, absolutely nothing helped for 12 long years of bad rashes and inflamed skin from the irritation the CPAP masks can cause. I know how impressed he was as he recently went to visit his best friend and it was the first time he packed his own shaving travel kit. I wanted to know where the Clear Extra Strength Anti Acne Cream was and he laughed on the phone and said, "Sorry, my dear I'll be home soon so you can use it. Richard now swears by it too." And THAT wonderful testament to PChoice products coming from my husband who barely uses any products on his body at all is a truly an amazing statement about how these perfectly formulated products really do help and keep helping couples like us. Thank you so very, very much Paula Begoin, we love you and your products. You truly have very beneficial and wonderous ingredients in your products! Best Regards, Rebecca Bunton in Ontario, Canada.
