Additional Information

Why is it different?

RESIST Weightless Body Treatment 2% BHA is unlike any body lotion you may have tried because of its unique skin-smoothing benefits that become visible from the first use. This lightweight yet moisturizing body lotion is a completely non-abrasive, gentle way to shed built-up layers of dead skin, resulting in unbelievably smooth, younger-looking skin from the neck down.

This exfoliant has a pH range of 3.5–3.9.

What does it do?
Works from the first application to visibly make rough, dry skin a thing of the past. Ongoing use banishes dullness and promotes resilient skin that’s touchably soft and ultimately smooth. This is a customer favorite, suitable even for skin prone to keratosis pilaris.

How to use
Apply a small amount to clean skin. May be used daily for all-over smoothing, or applied as a spot treatment where needed. Apply this treatment first when using with a moisturizer. For daytime, follow with a broad-spectrum sunscreen rated SPF 30 or greater.

Ratings & Reviews

Does not clear clogged pores


I bought to use it for face. Unfortunately it didn't perform good, it is like I didn't apply BHA at all. Clogged pores are not cleared with use. Not sure why. The BHA liquid and the lotion are great.




Works so well - love it


I have been using this product nearly daily for about 7 months now and I'm very impressed. I purchased it to treat my back, chest and belly. Due to my unique combination of lactose-intolerance and hardcore cheese addiction, I would often have at least 15-25 blemishes all year round running up and down the skin along my GI tract. Nothing super painful, but not cute all the same. Smash-cut to now, a few months later. I am basically clear all of the time now in these problem areas. The scarring that had developed over time is greatly diminished, and I bought a bikini this year I felt so good about my skin! Also, it lasts a really long time! With nearly daily use, just covering these spots, I'd say I have a little less than half the bottle left. Definitely worth it. I won't go without it again!

Cured a 20-year itch in one night!


I have had an itchy back for 20 years. I had a sample of this product, and it cured my itch overnight. Unbelievable. I'm going through perimenopause, and it's cleared up all the blemishes on my back and chest. No other product worked even a little. An absolute miracle.




The best $26 ever spent


I've been using it this about 2 weeks now and I must say, I don't usually believe in "magical" creams, but THIS IS STRAIGHT UP MAGIC! I had those red little bumps all over my arms since forever, and I never found anything that helped UNTIL I tried this. It feels like the bumps were never there! My arms have never felt so smooth. I'm sold 10000% on this, and I'll be buying this forever!

I wanted to love this.


I thought I had finally found a cure to my bumpy skin. I have used many PC Products and they are all amazing, this however did not work for me. I went through two full bottles and if anything my skin got worse. I will keep searching for a product that works for me..hopefully it's out there

I had really high hopes for this product, I have absolutely LOVED all other skin care products I have purchased from PC, my "ride or die" is the RESIST 4% BHA, for that reason I purchased this body lotion to treat KP that has appeared out of nowhere for the first time in my life on the back of my arms. I purchased it on 02/2018 and I have been super consistent using it, and have seen NO improvement whatsoever, and the scent is not really pleasant but does fade after some time. Will not be repurchasing it, and would not recommend this product based on my experience.

Wonderful Cream!


Hello, I just love this body treatment, it has helped my skin so much. I used to have bumps on the backs of my arms, after using this body treatment every day on my arms for a month they are Gone! Thank you so very much Paula because nothing else had worked, and I had tried may other products. I am a believer in Paula's Choice, Thank You.




Refreshing and lightweight


Nice lightweight texture, amsorbs into skin immediately, layers well with other moisturizers

Didnt work for me (disappointed)


I was quite disappointed after finished using this product. I was quite hyped up by those who have said how this improved their KP skin....nope, didnt really do anything to my legs. Perhaps my KP condition is more serious than others. :(



Great for KP!


When I first ordered this, years ago, I was so put off by the smell that I didn't use it regularly. It has a weird melon/cucumber smell that I don't care for, BUT the smell fades very quickly, and once I started using it daily, I noticed a drastic reduction in KP (keratosis pilaris -- little bumps) on my arms and back. BUT! It doesn't work nearly as well if I use coconut-based products on my skin (they break me out everywhere), or bar soap (we have hard water at our house and bar soap doesn't rinse completely, which then leaves a residue that clogs pores). Once I stopped using those troublesome ingredients, and started using this lotion daily, I noticed my skin was much, much smoother and the bumps were gone. It keeps them at bay too -- if I forgot to use the lotion, the next day they start popping up again. So it definitely works as a treatment when other trigger products are removed, and it definitely works as a preventative when used daily. The smell is the only downside, but since it fades, I'm fine with it. The bottle is HUGE and a very good deal for the money. Highly recommend!
