Why is it different?

RESIST Skin Revealing Body Lotion 10% AHA, a creamy yet lightweight leave-on AHA exfoliant, 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. It beautifully hydrates skin and softens dryness anywhere on the body.

This exfoliant has a pH range of 3.5-3.9.

What does it do?
The creamy, antioxidant-rich formula leaves skin feeling thoroughly hydrated and moisturized, and goes beyond to gently exfoliate and visibly improve rough skin with a 10% concentration of glycolic acid. Daily use helps to visibly improve uneven skin tone and soften the appearance of hard, clogged, red bumps on the arms and legs. Is a customer favorite even for those with 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 an additional moisturizer. For daytime, follow with a broad-spectrum sunscreen rated SPF 30 or greater. Do not apply to just-shaved skin.

Sun Protection Advice When Using Any AHA Exfoliant: RESIST Skin Revealing 10% AHA Lotion 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.

Ratings & Reviews

Baby feet without gross shedding


I've been using this for over a year, mostly on my feet and arms. I apply it to my feet twice a day to keep them soft, with results like those from Baby Feet, but without my skin peeling off and scaring people. It has also minimized bumps on the backs of my arms and lightened and softened my elbows. The smell is fine because it only means it's fragrance free, and it fades immediately anyway. Love it.

Love it on body... Works on face too...


I use this after I shower on my thighs, chest, hips and arms. Love it. I even use this lightly on my face as a moisturizer because I love how light it is and soaks right in - better than the facial moisturizers (I have oily skin on my face). I personally love the packaging - pumps won't help to get it all out either! Don't ever change this! It does irritate my lower legs if I have shaved, so I use different lotion there.




I will never buy another lotion other than this!!!!!


I have been using this for over two weeks now. I do not always apply it daily. I use a pea size amount on each arm and my chest and a slightly bigger dab (seriously not much bigger) dab on each leg and body. My skin fells like silk! Even after showering and NOT reapplying, it feels like silk. This lotion has been a game changer for me. I had bought the retinol one & did not like it as well. Other reviewers said they would like a pump...I WOULD NOT!!!!! I can control my amount easily and have no waste. Current packaging is great. One of the best skin products I have ever purchased. I am 47 and have dry skin.

I LOVE this product but PLEASE change the packaging!!! I always have to cut the bottle open to get the last 1/3 of the product because it won't come out otherwise! A bottle with a pump would be amazing! Even just a simple lotion bottle with a pump would make a huge difference!!!!!!!!!! Thanks for listening! < 3 The only thing I dont like about this body cream besides the bottle is that it pills like crazy :( I don't use a lot either. My skin just really does not agree with dimethicone unfortunately.





This is hands down the best lotion. I am a 25 year old female that has bacne. I just received this lotion, and already it has cleared up the majority of my back! It is super embarrassing to have to go outside without feeling like I have to wear a shirt that covers my shoulders and back. Especially since it is summertime. I usually get painful clusters of red pimples on my shoulderblades, shoulders, and sometimes on the top of my bicep. I get the occassional chest pimple. I've mainly beenusing this after I shower, that way my skin is nice and clean. When puttingthis on some pimples, it can be a bit stingy - but I am used to that from all the acne products ive tried in the past. Then I follow it up with the acne body spray from PC on the areas I think I've missed. It's been maybe two weeks since i've first starting using this, and my back is pretty much all clear!!! I still have random pimples that pop up,but no longer in clusters, and they dont last for very long like they used to. I will continue to keep using this lotion and their spray. Not only does it clear up some of my acne, it also makes the rest of my skin feel super smooth. It may be a bit on the pricey side for some lotion, but considering the amount you get vs facial products, I'd say this is fairly priced. The bottle it comes in is easy to use, since it just squirts out, and I still have a ton left after using it everyday for two weeks. Once this bottle is done, I am for sure buying more! I feel a lot more confident in going outside in tank tops, or even swimsuits than I have in a lonnnng time. Thank you, PC!




Unbelievable Difference!!! Elbows, back legs, neck!


I normally stick to the retenoil and BHA exfoliating products of Paula's choice. That being said, I always have fun picking and choosing the sample options that they allow when ordering. I tried a mini pack of the lotion and was surprised how soft it made my elbow for the day. So next purchase I took a chance- I'm SOOOOO GLAD I did. After one night I used in elbows, behind my legs, stomach and heels of feet and WOW ! What a difference. Soft! After 1 week of use, no bumps on my arms and back of legs and elbows are smooth and soft to the touch! Big deal for me. I only feel this soft after spending vacation in Puerto Rico being sloft off by the sand and ocean for two solid weeks! WOW! It's a bit addictive, as I want to instead of spot treatment want to use it all over, but I don't want to run out quick and it's summer so I'll have to naturally taper off too much use as I know it may cause sunburn. I hardly post reviews but know the importance and value to a person when trying to figure out if it's worth the money you're about to spend... Try it! It really works!

Multi use anti aging


I used this to treat ingrowns on lower back and bikini area after waxing. It absorbs fast and gets rid of them quickly! I started using it on my face a few times a week, alternating with 2% bha liquid. My face feels even softer than usual and looks super young I don't even need foundation. This is a great product for face and body. It can sting right after shaving or waxing so use the next day.

Results Build Over Time


Let me see how many skin n conditions I inherited- KP, rosacea, eczema... this exfoliant works wonders over time. I use this once per day consistently in combination with the retinol smoothing treatment and I can say the KP on my arms and legs is 90% gone. They are smooth and stay hydrated (oh yeah, I am also prone to itchy, flaky dry skin year around!) now!

Awesome KP treatment!


Like many others, I've had keratosis pilaris on my upper arms for years and years now. I've tried lots of the laziest remedies for it: rough exfoliation, using my facial toners & SA formulas on it, even putting clay masks on my arms. This is the only thing that's ever made a difference. My KP has smoothed out completely, and though the red pigmentation is still there, it's fading quickly. The before and after with this product is drastic, and I couldn't be happier. It is a little greasy, but I personally like that feeling. Your mileage may vary, but I think it's worth it for the results. I was considering buying Gold Bond's formula, but was much happier to find that Paula's Choice made creams for KP since I love everything they make - and that they're cruelty free. I was hesitant ONLY because of the perceived value for money, but honestly, this is such a good deal, guys. The bottle is really large and with usage only on targeted areas I can't see myself using up more than one or two bottles a year. Plus the packaging is very neat and hygienic. Overall, I'm totally in love. If you're considering it, give it a try! PC's customer service team is so kind and generous, you have nothing to lose but KP!




Works great!


I bought this to help with those red bumps that you get on the backs of your upper arms, you know the ones. Anyway, this lotion made a huge difference after a few weeks. I also use it on my face and it's made my skin noticeably smoother. I definitely recommend it!
