What does it do?
Delivers smoother, visibly younger-looking skin overnight. Specialized technology encapsulates the anti-aging and pore-reducing BHA for time-released delivery—so you get dramatic, non-irritating results without flaking skin. Also helps to visibly calm redness and revive skin’s firm appearance for a more youthful look. It’s even suitable for skin prone to milia.
Collapse
How to use
Use at least once weekly, at night. After cleansing and toning, dispense one pump and smooth treatment 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 eyelids eye area.

If eye contact occurs, hold eye open and rinse immediately and thoroughly with plenty of water for at least 20 minutes. Remove contact lenses, if present, after the first five minutes, then continue rinsing the eye. Consult your eye doctor immediately for care advice.

      Do not use in the winter time; irritated skin and had to wash off. Later, skin very dry, and wrinkles developed under both eyes. Waaah!

            Once a week is not enough; daily is too much, but I use this pretty frequently, alternating with the Calm 1%. I mostly spot treatment it on my nose and chin and spread it outward toward the rest of my face.

              Comments about RESIST Weekly Retexturizing Foaming Treatment 4% BHA:

              I have been using PC's Skin Perfecting 2% BHA liquid for a couple of years (only at night, because it's too heavy on my oily t-zone), and it's helped minimize my clogged pores and even out my complexion. However, I still had some bumps here and there that wouldn't budge, so I decided to give this a try. I started by using it every few days and had no burning or stinging, so I began applying it every other night. Honestly, I could probably use it every night with no adverse reactions, but I'm also using the CLINICAL 1% Retinol Treatment and RESIST 10% Niacinamide Booster, so I alternate nightly between the retinol (over the Skin Perfecting liquid) and this product, and then apply the booster.
              This routine keeps my skin looking great. Another bonus is that I very, very rarely get blemishes now. I used to always get them during *that* time of the month, but no longer!

              Service and delivery comments:

              Fairly quick shipping, packages always arrive in good condition.

              Comments about RESIST Weekly Retexturizing Foaming Treatment 4% BHA:

              This treatment really works and I'm amazed by the results! I have used it just once per week for 5 weeks now. My skin is combo and it became sensitized because I used the wrong products for my skin for a long time. Therefore, I expected overnight results the very first time I used It and, to be honest, I did not see much happening to my skin that first week. However, I followed a previous reviewer's advice about being patient in seeing the results. Each week the results are more visible and my skin is less bumpy, the tone is more even, the fine lines in my forehead are visibly diminished and overall, my skin is so soft! I guess the BHA started working in the deepest layers first which I assume were very damaged and that is why it took some time to see noticeable results in the outer layers... but seeing such changes after only 5 uses, I think it is actually pretty fast. Regarding the smell: it is true that is has a strong odor when you apply it but then it goes away (unless you have a very sensitive sense of smell, I guess). I definitely recommend this product as I am happy with the results :)

                  This product is way too harsh unless you have severely oily and acne prone skin. I really wanted to like this but I tried it again three days ago and am still recovering from the horrible reaction, needed a round of cortisone to calm it down and still experiencing itchy pinprick sensations.

                    I tried the product twice now a couple months apart and I too awoke with an itchy, sunburned looking face. My daughter, who is 20, did not have a bad reaction. It must be harsher on thinner (older) or sensitive skin. If the reddening is a normal part of the process a disclaimer should be noted on the bottle so the consumer knows this type of reaction is possible.
                    My other products from Paula's have all been fine. This one just has an irritant factor to it. If you are a first time user be sure to keep away from mouth and eye area (wrinkles will swell).

                    I used to love this. It worked better for my skin than anything I've ever used. Eventually, I became sensitized to something in it and it would make my face swell severely. Now I'm afraid to use anything with salicylic acid in case that's the culprit. If anyone else has had this problem and is still able to use other salicylic acid products I'd love to hear about it. My skin is a mess without it.

                    I'd recommend this product with a caution not to use it too often.

                        This had been one of my favorite PC products until I received my newest bottle. Something has changed—either it's a new formula, or this is a bad batch. It did seem to smell a little different from the last bottle. I used the new bottle for the first time last night, and this morning I woke up looking like I have a bad sunburn on my face. This is not an allergic reaction; it is a chemical burn, and it is painful. Previously I had used this product twice a week with absolutely no ill effects. Now I see multiple other reviews stating the same thing. Why has this product not been recalled?

                          First time I used, i did experience the itching others complained about. But I slathered on a heavy moisturizer over top. Woke up the next morning and all my existing pimples had called down, I didn't have any new pimples either. My skin felt so soft and smooth. So I planned to only use it one a week based off other reviews saying how trying and harsh it was, but since I wasn't experiencing any over trying or pain and I loved how it made my skin feel I decided to do half a pump on my face every night with a heavy moisturizer over top. I will also apply the BHA 9 to spot areas and this on top and a moisturizer. I now no longer have blackheads, and only occasional pimples around my cycle. I have extremely oily skin, EXTREMELY OILY! So this is probably why I am able to tolerate this product with such frequent use. If you have dry skin you should probably not use this.
