Improves visible signs of aging as it helps to unclog congested pores and diminish their appearance. This ultra-light, leave-on treatment also visibly smooths skin’s surface, resulting in a fresh, vibrant-looking complexion. It is a customer favorite, even for those with skin prone to milia.

I keep coming back to this one...

I've tried the other PC BHA products, but I keep coming back to the Resist Daily Pore-Refining Treatment. It leaves my skin feeling much cleaner - the others leave a film I don't like. It's still very effective and I can definitely tell a difference on my face when I go without it for too long.

No other brand works this well

I have combination (T-zone) skin, and use this liquid every day without fail and do not break out, ever. Without it, I will eventually begin to get whiteheads after six to eight weeks, no matter what other brand product I use--I've tried other, much more expensive brand products and nothing works like this. I switched to the liquid from the gel because I was not enamored of the smell or sticky feel of the gel, and it's just great. It lasts a long time, too--I just use a few drops on a cotton ball for my entire face and neck, and no more breakouts, no more of those little rice bumps on my neck, just smooth skin. It's simply the best

Best thing that have ever happened to my face!

I absolutely love this product and purchased it multiple times already. I use it almost every day and was able to stop using acne products altogether. My skin is clean and soft and feels very healthy.

Better than the skin perfecting liquid!

Don't get me wrong, the 2% BHA Skin Perfecting Liquid is a great product. But, I didn't love the greasy feeling that never quite dried. This is my new favorite BHA liquid from Paula's Choice. It's odorless, doesn't irritate my skin, and dries quickly so that I can layer other products. Five stars.

I prefer this formula to the other BHA products

Using this product just suits my skin better, and I don't know why. I've tried most of the liquid exfoliant products but this works best.

Perfect!!!

I came across this when I was looking for something to help firm skin. This is my new favorite product. It really helps shrink pores and tighten the skin. I won't be without it!!

My FAVORITE exfoliant!

5

This is my very favorite BHA exfoliant! I have tried most of PCs exfoliants and this one hits the mark for me. Having oily skin, I am picky about the way a product feels on my skin. I was never thrilled wit the way the others felt on my skin. The 1% lotion, 1% gel and even the much loved 2% liquid I never liked the way the felt on my skin. I used them anyway because they were still effective and I liked the results. This one perfect! It is so light and never leaves my skin feeling sticky or like the product is sitting on top of it. It helps even out my skin tone and keep acne at bay. This one is a keeper indeed!

Calms skin like no other!!!

I have redness and enlarged pores in my t zone. This is a life saver. Once applied, it calms my skin to an enormous amount. Corrects tone. I have easily irritated skin to the point I have to use a mineral sunscreen - the calm line of moisturizers. But this is a life saver, let me say again, a life saver. Thanks Paula.

This is my new holy grail skincare product

I'm not even sure how I received a sample of this product because it wasn't one that I selected, but I am sooooo glad I did. I had ordered some other Paula's Choice products before, that I feel are kind of similar to this one, and they did nothing for me. I was disappointed because I had heard such good things. I'm not even sure what made me try the sample, as I didn't really have high hopes for it. OMG. I have never had a skincare product make such a difference in my skin in a matter of days. After two uses, I was literally looking in the mirror like "wow". It didn't magically clear up all of my acne overnight or anything like that, but the overall look of my skin is better than it has been in years, possibly ever. I don't think it's even marketed for reducing redness, but it most definitely does that. I have an evenness and softness to my skin that is just incredible for me to see. I have had "bad" skin for decades and this has improved after a couple of weeks. I had been having weird, persistent breakouts on my neck for the last few months that I had been unable to get rid of - this has cleared them up completely. I'm not the type that wears a full face of makeup to work everyday, but I will use concealer to cover the redness and any acne; I have been able to use less and less every week. I will continue to use this for as long as I can buy it because it amazing. The only thing I would change is the bottle; the design of it makes it rather impossible to get the right amount out. You only need maybe two drops, but in order to do that I end up having to squeeze the bottle and a little puddle's worth comes out every time and makes a mess all over the top of the bottle. This stuff isn't cheap, but it will last a looong time if you can manage not to waste it every use. So I ended up just putting it in one of the smaller travel bottles that I had received another Paula's Choice product in and it works perfectly. No more waste, no more mess.

Definitely Buying Again

No joke, my pores were half the size within three days of use. This product is super lightweight and it doesn't smell horrendous. I will keep this in my skincare routine for sure.
