Why is it different?

Resist Daily Smoothing Treatment 5% AHA (Glycolic Acid) refines the surface of skin with exceptionally gentle and completely non-abrasive exfoliation. It also offers additional benefits, including hydration, soothing antioxidants, and a mix of fortifying skin-restoring ingredients. This product has an optimal pH range of 3.5–3.9. All Paula’s Choice products are 100% fragrance free, clinically proven to be non-irritating, and never tested on animals.

What does it do?

Reveals youthful radiant skin and helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This innovative daily-use formula continually revitalizes skin’s texture, visibly evens skin tone, and helps promote visibly firmer-looking, smoother skin. A specially selected mix of antioxidants helps fight the impact of free-radical damage, while ceramides and peptides bind moisture for beautifully radiant skin.

How to use?

Apply once or twice daily after cleansing and toning. Apply a dime-sized amount over the entire face, avoiding direct contact with eyes and lips. Do not rinse. For daytime, follow with a broad-spectrum sunscreen rated SPF 30 or greater. When using your product for the first time, you may need to “prime” the dispenser. To prime, simply pump the dispenser slowly about 10-15 times. If the dispenser stops working at any time, simply repeat the "priming" step. Do not attempt to dismantle the package. Sun Protection Advice When Using Any AHA Exfoliant: This product contains 5% 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.

Helps maintain smooth skin texture

I've tried AHAs with higher percentages but find that 5% is the perfect concentration for my skin. I use it 3x a week on odd weekdays (I let my skin "rest" on weekends) & so far it has helped to maintain a smooth texture. Of course it won't eliminate ALL texture, but my skin is the smoothest it has ever been without all the irritation & stinging. Only thing I



I love this! I use this in the morning on certain days. Isn't too heavy on the skin. Def brightens and smoothens the skin. Can see the difference
