Additional Information

Why is it different?

RESIST BHA Exfoliant Set gives you two completely gentle, non-abrasive, leave-on exfoliants. The 2% version is for daily use and its silky-smooth liquid feel will provide skin-transforming results overnight. The 4% BHA formula is a more potent, time-released solution to go deep to exfoliate, visibly reducing problematic pores, bumps and uneven texture in half the time. Includes RESIST Daily Pore-Refining Treatment 2% BHA (88 ml/ 3 fl. oz.) and RESIST Advanced Pore-Refining Treatment 4% BHA (30 ml/ 1 fl. oz.)

These products have an optimal pH range of 3.2–4.0

What does it do?
Addresses the problems of sun-damaged skin along with the concerns of those with temperamental normal to oily/combination skin. This power couple works quickly to unclog pores for a visible improvement in bumpy skin and enlarged pores. Both the daily and weekly exfoliants are advanced formulas that smooth an uneven skin texture, visibly improving skin’s softness, while minimizing such signs of aging as fine lines and wrinkles.

How to use

RESIST Daily Pore-Refining Treatment 2% BHA:
Apply once or twice daily after cleansing and toning. Lightly soak a cotton pad and apply over the entire face, including the eye area (avoid the lower lash line and eyelids). Do not rinse. For daytime, follow with a broad-spectrum sunscreen rated SPF 30 or greater.

RESIST Advance Pore-Refining Treatment 4% BHA:
Use after cleansing and toning, daily or weekly. Dispense one pump and smooth over face, neck and chest. Do not rinse. Follow with the rest of your evening skincare routine.

May be used once a week or daily depending on your skin's response and your concerns. It can be applied at the same time as your regular BHA exfoliant, but pay attention to how your skin responds and adjust usage accordingly. Do not apply to lips or eye area.

I will be a repeat customer!

My skin is resistant to most products. At same time it breaks out immediately with new cosmetics, cleansers, moisturizers. I do not shed skin cells normally, so have buildup causing breakouts and rough complexion.

I am in love!

As someone with oily aging acne-prone skin I had all but given up finding a product that would help with both the fine lines and the breakouts. After reading about the RESIST line I invested in this duo, and I can't believe how great my skin looks. My enlarged pores are getting smaller, my fine lines are fading, and my skin looks better than it ever has. No breakouts AT ALL. Highly recommend this. It works.

A love letter

5

This is a love letter to this wonderful set! I use the liquid daily and the foam twice a week. This is the first time since hitting puberty that I have not had a zit on my face. I am overjoyed and my confidence has sky rocketed. Yes, the foam smells like stank fish, but I really don't care cause my face loves it. Give it about a month to work because it won't happen overnight. Paula's Choice thank you.

I wish I never stopped

Im 36yrs old and have battled with acne, cystic acne and oily skin all my life. I have been a skin care specialist for Clarins and a counter manager for Lancome. My skin can be very sensitive as well. I started using the Resist line due to my age. I first only used the cleanser, toner and moisturizer. Then I started using the BHA's and immediately noticed how soft my skin was. I typically breakout when exfoliating so I was prepared to start seeing acne...but amazingly I did not break out and then I noticed that my old acne was clearing up. Aunt Flo is always good to give me cystic acne and for the first time in my life, I went through the entire flo with not one bump. I never get compliments on my skin and my husband and mother remarked how good my skin looked. I also use the benzoyl peroxide 2% treatment that Paulas Choice carries. After I cleanse, I use my BHA, then after it dries, I take a dime size of the peroxide and apply a thin layer all over my face (avoiding the eye area), I let it dry and then I apply my moisturizer. I know it's not supposed to be for this purpose but it works! It protects your skin from makeup and other agressors and at the same time it is helping clear your skin. I only use the 2% though, no higher than that. Anyways, I started thinking that there was no way that a product line is doing all this. Yes, when you suffer with acne all your life and finally find something that works, you will go into denial lol. I thought maybe it was bc I am older, maybe I grew out of the breakouts. Well, I now have 2 cystic bumps on my chin, one starting on my forehead, my skin looks extremely rough and bumpy. So that is it for me. I will never stop using Paulas Choice again! Others have stated that they do not like the smell but for me I am totally fine with it. I would rather have clear skin then use something that has fragrance in it which will break me out. Once the product dries, the smell is gone. Honestly it just smells like medicine. Please Paulas Choice do not change the formula. It is perfect just the way it is.

Great for clearing pores.

I use this to keep sebaceous hyperplasia at bay. I couple this with the Resist BHA 9 to reduce the size of the larger bumps. With these three products I've been able to regain my skin's smoothness with minimal flaking and no great stress to my skin. Thank you Paula! I should note that the texturizing foam does have a strong smell but it goes away but when I put foundation/sunscreen over it it goes away.

Acne Prone and Wrinkles

I just want to say that I use the foam on special occasions! They next day my skin looks refreshed and am very happy with the results:) I love the resist line! If I cleanse and tone my face twice a day I really shows! But at times I do get lazy so hopefully paula's choice will make resist wipes;) LOL Thank you for your wonderful products! It really has changed my life over this past year. I really wished I knew about you guys around my wedding time. I had a huge disgusting boil like pimple next to my nose and I barely get huge nasty boil like pimples but it happened on my wedding day?

Truely amazing for blackheads!

5

I began using the Resist for oily skin line 10 weeks ago for blackheads and breakouts that have plagued me since I was a teenager. I am now 65, have always used sunscreen and have few wrinkles even at my age. What a miracle the BHA's are! After going through the "purging" process where old deep blackheads looked worse as they worked their way out I am finally just about clear. I used the 2% twice a day for the first month then I added the 4% foam at night every other day to speed the process up.

Incredibly Effective!

5

These two exfoliants are my favorite; the Resist line offers the additional anti-aging benefits I now require. The weekly BHA is an incredible boost to my normal routine & I use the Resist Daily Pore Refining 2% BHA in my morning routine. I find the Resist Daily Pore Refining 2% BHA provides me the perfect feel on my skin in the morning while still keeping my cycstic acne & oiliness in check. I will never be without these two powerhouse products!

Miracle

I have been using these products faithfully for a month in conjunction with the cleanser (also unbelieveable) and the moisturizer, and my skin hasn't felt so amazing in 15 years! My hormonal breakouts diminished within 10 days and the tone, softness and plumpness of my face is amazing. I would definitely recommend this entire product line!

Wow!!

I used the 4% daily BHA and OVERNIGHT I saw the results I have been struggling to obtain over 17 years of products, medicines, diet, etc... I never thought I would see such an improvement in my blackheads and closed comedones that I have everywhere but particularly around my chin and jaw, much less so instantly. Please never stop making this product, it is a godsend, especially because it doesn't dry me out!
