What does it do?
Exfoliates, smooths and visibly renews skin’s surface when you use the two innovative AHA formulas: RESIST Daily Smoothing Treatment has a 5% concentration of AHA for daily use; RESIST Advanced Smoothing Treatment contains 10% AHA with a liquid texture for weekly use. This set works instantly to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and uneven skin tone so you will quickly see radiant, healthy-looking skin.

How to use

RESIST Daily Smoothing Treatment with 5% Alpha Hydroxy Acid:
Apply once daily after cleansing and toning. Can be used morning and night. Follow with serum, booster, or treatment product. During the daytime finish with sunscreen. Avoid applying to eyelids and lips.

RESIST Advanced Smoothing Treatment 10% AHA:
Apply a thin layer to cleansed, toned skin at night. Do not rinse. Follow with the rest of your evening skincare routine. You can apply this once a week, every other day, or every day depending on how much sun damage or advanced signs of aging you have. Avoid applying to eyelids or lips.

Special notes on this set:
We recommend experimenting with how you apply these two products to see what works best for you. For example, you can apply Daily Smoothing Treatment 5% AHA twice daily on days you don’t use the Advanced Smoothing Treatment 10% AHA or you can apply both at the same time, which can work great for stubborn concerns and deeper signs of sun damage.

Amazing!

This stuff! I've only used it once, but I'm so amazed at how much my skin has been affected! It's as close to magic that you could get! Truly! I feel like Paula's Choice could charge $5,000 for this stuff and I would still but it! Ok, maybe not, but you get the idea!

This set has been so helpful in resurfacing my skin from previous acne and small scars. I bought this set a few times, but it works so well I'm not even sure if I will need to buy it again!

I have been using this alpha hydroxy combination for at least 9years. I am mistaken for being anywhere from 5 to 10 years younger than I am. I have tried some of the retinol products as well as vitamin c, but keep coming back to this combo!. Daily with the 5% at night, and once a week with the 10% at night. There is a sting with the 10%, and I think there was a sting with the 5 % when I first started using. Don't be alarmed by seeing flaky dead skin on your face, this can be remedied. One of my tips for use with this or any other exfoliating product is that when you shower, and after using cleanser or soap, step out away from the water, and try manual fingertip exfoliation in small circles all over the face to help clear the dead skin. You feel little balls of the skin forming under your finger tips. Then after I feel I've gotten the most of the skin off, I rinse it away. This works great for me, but some of my friends use micro-fibre cloths to get the skin exfoliating.

Wondefully Moisturizing!

I used to have oily combination skin, but as I,simultaneously, went through menoupause and moved to a very dry climate, my skin has become dry and breakout prone. I was using the Resist set for Wrinkles and breakouts and,although, I think the products are great, my skin was still dry and flaky. I decided to return the BHA products and purchased the AHA set and noticed dramatic results IMMEDIATELY! This was just what my skin needed. I started using the daily exfoliant in the mornings and at nights, but found it was a bit too much w/my prescription retionol, so I use it just in the mornings now. I use the weekly one at night once a week as directed. This in combination with the Moisture Boost Oil have made a huge difference in the appearance of my makeup and its staying power. I love that one pump of the daily AHA can cover my entire face and neck and have not had any issues w/the pump packaging. Only a tiny amount of the Weekly AHA is needed as well, so this set should last me awhile. I believe this set is going to be the first of my HG products!

Game changer!

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.

The Skin Resurfacing & Smoothing System works. Milia, blemishes, white & black heads, oiliness, rough patches, sun damage, fine lines - tremendous improvements No problems with redness, irritation, or using other Paula's Choice products with it (at 53 I use PC CLEAR anti-acne products, too).

Smooth Skin

I love all of the Resist products, but I suspect these two products are the ones most responsible for the way my skin looks now; smooth, wrinkle-free and clear. I started getting comments about my skin about two months after I began using them, and I've never looked back (I was 55 at the time, so that's noting short of a miracle). My skin loves AHA - I can use the 10% solution several times a week without a problem. Now if only there was a 20% solution...

I've always loved Paula's Choice skincare, but the new Resist system is exceptional! My hairdresser (who's more than 10 years younger than I am) was so impressed with my skin that she wrote down information on how to order. Thank you, Paula!
