Additional Information

Why is it different?
RESIST BHA 9 for Stubborn Imperfections is an absolutely unique one-of-a-kind targeted formula for stubborn imperfections. It is your go-to solution when nothing else has worked. Impressive results are often visible after only one use. This exfoliant has an optimal pH of 3.2–3.6.
What does it do?
Delivers 9% BHA in a controlled-release formula for maximum skin smoothing with noticeable results. This serum visibly and quickly minimizes stubborn bumps, redness, enlarged pores and clarifies skin’s surface. Soothing plant extracts allow the formula to work without causing dryness.
How to use
At night, apply as a leave-on spot treatment for stubborn imperfections. Dispense a very small amount of RESIST BHA 9 onto a clean fingertip, and massage a thin layer over affected areas. Suitable for use around the eyes, but avoid contact with eyelids and do not apply along the lower lashline. Experiment to see which method works best for your skin concerns. May be applied over larger areas if needed. Reduce frequency of usage if irritation or flaking occurs.

Ratings & Reviews

Please change the packaging!!


I love this product, but it's impossible to control how much of the serum gets dispensed. The pump sticks and either a tiny amount comes out, only enough for a square centimeter of skin, or a huge gush comes out and half gets wasted. Plus the thing leaks if it gets knocked over. I've been relying on it to keep blackheads in check and I'm worried about how my skin will look after I run out of my current package. I'd love to order another one, but so much gets wasted and the mess is very frustrating. Why not make it a dropper-style bottle?

remarkable for acne


I originally purchased this hoping it'd clear up a bit of milia on my cheek, I applied it religiously but it didn't have any affect so I ultimately had them removed by my dermatologist. But the real winner for this spot treatment is for acne, if I see a zit starting to form I'll put a bit on and it often nips it in the bud. I'll be repurchasing for sure. I know the pump makes it hard to dispense a very small amount, which yes, is kind of annoying if I only have one small spot to cover, but I throw it on any discoloration spots if I have any leftover so I find I'm not wasting it.

It works !


The solution itself works , I noticed difference shortly after starting using it . I rate that as a 5*! However , I saw all the reviews about The bad packaging , and didn't believe is that bad. I need the solution to be applied only on my nose , and the pack dispenses to much at the time , so half of my product is waisted . It is priced high for the quantity you get , so I would rather not waist it.






This is such a shame, even though I LOVE the product and it really delivers the pump leaks all over and I loose too much product. I won't repurchase until they fix this problem. Too much liquid comes up in one pump and then it leaks and its frustrating!! Its not cheap so I would expect a better quality packaging like the rest of PC products.



Love the product, hate the packaging


I have been using this product for a few years and j love it. I've never been a fan of the packaging as it does sometimes dispense more than you need but I could deal with it because the product is so good. But the last couple I have purchased seem to have an issue with leaking that I have never experienced before. I traveled with it last summer and by the time I reached my destination it had leaked all over the other products in my bag and the bottle was completely empty. I ordered a replacement and the bottle had leaked before it reached me. Has there been a change in design or suppliers? Please fix this! The product itself is great, I have overall very clear skin but suffer from hormonal cystic acne. This stuff clears the acne must faster than anything I've tried recently and the redness and scarring goes away quickly.

Best product ever!


I put this treatment on before bed and noticed a huge difference in my skin in just one use. My pores are smaller and I do not see dead skin sitting on my face. I will forever use this product!

I KNOW I am not the only one who has had a leaky bottle. So much product is being wasted. and for something this expensive, when it only comes in a small amount, it a huge disappointment. I need this product but I can no longer justify spending the money and having half of it leak everywhere. I will no longer be purchasing unless they change the packaging. Please listen to your customers...... Almost every single review on this product has mentioned the leaky packaging... Thank you.



Great product but awful packaging


Love this BHA, it works wonderful! the packaging is rubbish though, I dont need a full pump so I end up loosing half the product. The pump leaks and its frustrating. Please PC team do something about it!

Package leaks


I like this product, but would like it a lot better if it came in different packaging. I don't need a full pump and it's hard to get just a little bit out at a time. Also, the pump on my bottle leaks all the way around the depressor, wasting expensive product.




Terrible packaging


I have bought it twice by now and every time more than half of it has spilled out of the container just because. I can't figure out what causes the pump to start leaking but once it starts doing it, the product runs out fast, specially if it is stored laying flat instead of standing up (imaging keeping a marker always staring up). I love the product, it does work for me but it is very expensive specially if I only get to use half of the bottle.
