What does it do?
This powerful formula with glycolic acid works overnight (almost like magic) to reveal youthful, smoother, and more radiant-looking skin. A unique liquid delivery system plus innovative soothing ingredients provides gentle, yet impressive results. You’ll see a visibly improved texture, color, and tone, and a reduction in the appearance of wrinkles. With ongoing use, skin’s appearance becomes firmer looking and maintains its beautifully smooth texture. Suitable even for skin prone to milia.
Collapse
How to use
Apply once weekly, only at night, in place of your daily exfoliant. After cleansing and toning, apply a dime-sized amount over the entire face, avoiding direct contact with eyes and lips. Leave on overnight or rinse after 10 minutes. On the night(s) you use this Treatment do not use other exfoliants or scrubs at the same time. In the mornings you can use other exfoliants as per your normal routine. If you're using a prescription retinoid product (i.e. Renova) apply the exfoliant first and allow it to set, then apply the retinoid product. Follow with a serum and/or moisturizer.

Sun Protection Advice When Using Any AHA Exfoliant: This product contains 10% glycolic acid, an ingredient that may increase your skin's sensitivity to the sun and the possibility of sunburn. Always apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen rated SPF 30 or greater every day. When outdoors, wear protective clothing whenever possible, seek shade, and avoid prolonged sun exposure.

      Comments about RESIST Weekly Resurfacing Treatment with 10% AHA:

      I was looking for an alternative to the famous but pricey product, Sunday Riley's Good Genes. This does the same thing (albeit without the initial shiny "glow" that Good Genes gives you). I was using Good Genes at night and would wake up with smooth, nicely exfoliated skin (the shine would be gone by morning). This does this as good a job at exfoliating, I definitely recommend it.

        Comments about RESIST Weekly Resurfacing Treatment with 10% AHA:

        I have used this exfoliant for about 3 years and have repurchased several times. The results are real and noticable almost immediately. My usual routine is to use about twice per week, up to every other day in winter months when my skin is dryer than normal. The product lasts a long time, several months, and thus I find it very reasonably priced. I do not have problematic skin, just some dry areas, sun damage and wrinkles. I strongly feel this exfoliant helps with all of that for me. Definitely leaves the skin tone with a more radiant glow from within. :-)

        Comments about RESIST Weekly Resurfacing Treatment with 10% AHA:

        This product does improve skin texture and reduce pore size, but it does not help with anything that is trapped under the skin. When using this it dried out my face a ton, and I cannot use moisturizers without breaking out, so that was unfortunate. I ended up with a couple rough patches from the dryness. Now I'm having to recover from my breakouts... Maybe I'll try a clinical peel instead. Wish Paula's Choice had something stronger and not so drying.

          This product worked wonders almost immediately. Only problem is that now that my skin has adjusted to it, the results aren't as dramatic and only last a week or two. Still use it regularly and will buy it again.

            Comments about RESIST Weekly Resurfacing Treatment with 10% AHA:

            64, very fair, rosacea. Noticed a change after the first use. Don't understand the "feels sticky" comments. I think it feels moist. A little goes a long way. I don't bother with a pad or cotton ball. Twice a week I put a couple drops in the palm of my hand and dab what I need where I need it, disperse it with my fingertips and leave it on overnight with a bit of moisturizer over the top. Pores are clear and smaller, texture is silky smooth, seems to be evening out some age-related discolorations, and does not aggravate my rosacea. If you have super sensitive skin, try a sample.

            Works with My Sensitive Skin

            Comments about RESIST Weekly Resurfacing Treatment with 10% AHA:

            I have very sensitive skin and was very wary of trying this product out. I am so glad that I did! I use it twice a week overnight and have had great results. My skin has a clearer look and clogged pore bumps have diminished. The improvement is noticeable which almost never happens with a skin product. I need to be careful with what products I put on my face the next day (no vitamin C serum for example). The exfoliation makes my skin more vulnerable to other products but as long as I exercise some common-sense precautions (which is hard because I want to use all the serums all the time) this product is phenomenal!

              Comments about RESIST Weekly Resurfacing Treatment with 10% AHA:

              I bought this a while ago and because I use another 10% glycolic acid from another brand and thought my skin was used to it, I decided to try it again. Last Friday I applied it to my chest where I have lots of wrinkles and the next day I noticed many small, red bumps like tiny pimples. It's now Thursday and they're still there. I know they will go away eventually as it happened before, but now I'm scared to keep using it. Should I try again this week hoping it will help improve, or skip altogether?

                I LOVE the 10% weekly resurfacing treatment. I feel like it's like pressing a "restart" button for your skin. I have normal/dry skin and it is relatively hearty, meaning that it's pretty tolerant of exfoliants. The first time I ever used it, I left it on for the initial recommended 10 minutes. There definitely was a tad of a tingle/burn for the first minute or so, then it subsided. After doing that a couple of times, I started to leave it on overnight, as you can also do. If your skin can tolerate it, it makes SUCH a difference. I wake up with brighter, smoother, decongested skin. Like I said, it's like having a "refresh" button! I've recently found that it works wonders in combination with the overnight brightening mask! I put the glycolic peel on, let it sit for a bit and then put the overnight brightening mask on over the top. It's a miracle combo!
