Additional Information

Why is it different?
RESIST Triple-Action Dark Spot Eraser 2% BHA Gel is a highly specialized anti-aging product that works in three ways to improve the appearance of skin: the gold standard skin-lightening ingredient hydroquinone fades dark spots and discolorations; salicylic acid exfoliates to smooth skin texture; and antioxidants help nurture skin for truly younger-looking, radiant results. Special packaging keeps the key sensitive ingredients stable and effective.

What does it do?
Restores an even skin tone by fading and lessening brown and/or dark spots. The silky-smooth, breathable gel glides on easily and absorbs without feeling sticky or greasy. BHA helps to improve the appearance of enlarged pores while plant-derived ingredients help quiet redness and calm skin. Special packaging and controlled dispensing keeps the key air-sensitive ingredients stable during use, so you’ll get maximum results from this potent dark-spot solution.

How to use

Apply a small amount before moisturizing. Spread a thin layer over areas where discolorations are a concern. Protect skin during the day with a product rated SPF 30 or greater (essential to prevent discolorations from recurring). Results for discolorations should appear after 8–12 weeks of consistent use.

For best results, do not use hydroquinone and benzoyl peroxide at the same time. A temporary dark staining of the skin may occur. If accidentally used together, wash the skin with soap and water to remove the staining.

    Comments about RESIST Triple-Action Dark Spot Eraser 2% BHA Gel:

    This is the first 'spot remover' that actually works! I've had a large dark spot on my cheek for many years and have tried various remedies, including one from a dermatologist. None did very much, but this one shows very good results. My brown area is much lighter after applying this twice daily for several weeks. Very pleased! I also used sunscreen at least 30 to keep this area from darkening again (and sunscreen on my entire face, of course).

      Comments about RESIST Triple-Action Dark Spot Eraser 2% BHA Gel:

      This is an excellent formula that begs for pump packaging (airtight would be ideal) or at minimum a dropper top (akin to the new 4% BHA and 10% AHA) to allow greater control over dispensing the gel and avoiding oxidation. Thank you in advance for your consideration of this well intended suggestion!

      Service and delivery comments:

      Both are excellent.

        Comments about RESIST Triple-Action Dark Spot Eraser 2% BHA Gel:

        I use this twice daily after cleansing and hyaluronic acid serum, before moisturizer. At first I didn't think it was working, but I had taken "before pictures". So now that I can compare 5 months later, I see it really has reduced my pigmentation spots and redness. I've always had freckles but they had started to clump more into age spots. I definitely noticed this product was given a chance to work once fall and winter set it. It doesn't so much remove spots, but prevents them from coming back after they fade away. So you do need to use SPF and keep out of the sun when you can.

            Been using this consistently for about a year now. When I first started off it burned my skin like crazy, as it was my first time using an AHA, so I mixed it in with my moisturizer and used it every other night. Now that my skin is used to it I use it every night on areas where my skin is dark + where I have acne scars. A little goes a long way. This product, along with consisten use of sunscreen have changed my skin. My acne scars aren't gone yet but this has definitely helped. A year later I feel like the product isn't as effective as it was when I first started using it so once its gone I wont repurchase, but I do recommend the product.

              I've tried all kinds of lotions and treatments and creams for my previous acne scars and nothing has worked so far. This gel truly shows results . Just two weeks of this treatment and Ive stopped wearing makeup everyday to cover my spots.
              Hoping to use it consistently to get rid of them for good!

              After doing some research, I decided to try this (in combo with new toner & exfoliant) for really bad cystic acne...not only did it reduce the scarring, it helped reduce the pain and duration of the pimples from hell. Granted it took a long time to see real results on acne scars/skin tone, but now I almost never get those mountains of misery popping up anymore! 4 stars bc of the texture, but for me, 100% worth it.

                    Comments about RESIST Dark Spot Eraser 2% BHA - 1 oz:

                    Based on the product information, it's best not to use this spot treatment with any acne medication or product containing benzoyl peroxide so I stopped using my acne cleanser which had 10% benzoyl peroxide for about a week and substituted it for the Paula's Choice Clear Pore cleanser before trying this. I have combination, acne prone skin, not super sensitive and I used this for a few days and developed a rash on both cheeks of tiny bumps. I knew it wasn't acne because they weren't able to be popped, they just sat there and were not like my regular breakout pimples. So I stopped using this gel and used only the PC cleanser for a few days before going back to my original benzoyl peroxide cleanser and in a few weeks all the bumps and acne were gone. I'm so disappointed this didn't work because I've cleared up most of my acne but the dark spots on my face are just that: DARK and horrendous and everywhere and this product brought new ones. Clear skin means nothing without an even skin tone to me. I should also note the PC cleanser did absolutely nothing for my acne...at one point it seemed to be bringing on new acne, it was only good for washing off my makeup which is pointless because I like the PC Makeup remover better for that purpose.
