What does it do?
Reveals youthful radiant skin and helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This innovative daily-use formula continually revitalises 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 over the entire face, avoiding direct contact with eyes and lips. Do not rinse. For daytime, follow with a broad-spectrum sunscreen rated SPF 15 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 15 or greater every day. When outdoors, wear protective clothing whenever possible, seek shade, and avoid prolonged sun exposure.

      Comments about Resist Daily Smoothing Treatment 5% AHA - 50 ml:

      I'm really enjoying this product. I started on retin-a .5% after getting a big scare about how much my skin has aged in the last few years (I've hit my 40s, moved to a dry cooler climate, and I've been exposed to a lot of pore-enlarging building dust while building a house recently). I've slowly worked up to retin-a every 2nd night, and this is the perfect product to use on alternate nights - it's light, mild, but still gives visibly smoother, softer and more glowing skin the next morning. Eventually I hope to work up to higher regular AHAs (I have a travel bottle of the 8% gel) but for now this is perfect to gently introduce my skin to a new way of doing things! If my skin is feeling up to it I can also wear it during the day under sunscreen. I definitely recommend for anyone wanting to ease into using AHAs.

          Comments about Resist Daily Smoothing Treatment 5% AHA - 50 ml:

          I am so please to hear that others have had a similar reaction to me. This has irritated my skin so much. I went from having smooth skin to bumpy, red, irritated skin. It actually feels like it has literally burnt my skin. I will never use this again.

          Comments about Resist Daily Smoothing Treatment 5% AHA - 50 ml:

          I've only started using Paula's Choice products and I definitely chose the wrong item here. My skin developed a bumpy, red, acne like rash - it was sore and burny feeling. I immediately stopped using this product and a week later the rash has gone. I've started using the Resist cleanser again and so far so good. I'm pretty disappointed that I have nearly a full container of this product I can't use.

          This product is the one thing I can never run out of..I have always looked after my skin and had great smooth skin but this product has taken my skin to the next level of softness and smoothness. Make up looks even more flawless over the silky smooth skin. The only con I have is it would be good to have a small clear strip down the side of the packaging so you can see how much is left in the pump.

          Im new to PC. I came across these products reading a blog or something like it. I liked the 2%BHA sample and was going to order that but decided on this after reading reviews. After two days my skin is amazingly smooth. Like many reviewers I have increasingly found face scrubs to be virtually useless, and admittedly was sceptical that a lotion could be an exfoliant. I bought a few other products at the same time which Im equally amazed at the hand cream and a serum.

          I'm in my 40's and didn't think that I could achieve better looking skin. However, this exceptional product has helped to smooth out my skin and my melasma spots have faded significantly over the last few months. Wow, this has really improved my skin and it feels wonderful!

          Comments about Resist Daily Smoothing Treatment 5% AHA - 50 ml:

          I have normal skin with a slight oil flow through my t-zone. I currently use the 8% AHA gel which I have to be careful about using (and only about 2x weekly) as it can leave me with burn patches near my eczema problem areas and leave my skin a bit sore. I received a sample of this exfoliate and I have to say, I love it. I had no dry or sore feeling, just hydrated and comfortable. I will def be purchasing a bottle of this!! It has a beautiful texture too, compared with the8% gel.

          Comments about Resist Daily Smoothing Treatment 5% AHA - 50 ml:

          I NEVER do reviews, but after years of my face feeling like sand paper and my trying to use scrubs to avoid the 'harness' of AHA on my sensitive skin, I tried this. I sound like an infomercial, but I was truly amazed. My skin is soft again! It's glowing! And this is gentle, no harsh reactions to my skin. Seriously, I am in love with this product, I can't stop touching my soft cheeks!
