What does it do?
Delivers smoother, visibly younger-looking skin overnight. Specialised technology encapsulates the anti-ageing and pore-reducing BHA for time-released delivery—so you get dramatic, non-irritating results without flaking skin. Also helps to visibly calm redness and revive skin’s firm appearance for a more youthful look. It’s even suitable for skin prone to milia.
Collapse
How to use
Use at least once weekly, at night. After cleansing and toning, dispense one pump and smooth treatment over face, neck, and chest. Do not rinse. Follow with the rest of your evening skincare routine.

May be used once a week or daily depending on your skin's response and your concerns. It can be applied at the same time as your regular BHA exfoliant, but pay attention to how your skin responds and adjust usage accordingly. Do not apply to lips or eyelids eye area.

If eye contact occurs, hold eye open and rinse immediately and thoroughly with plenty of water for at least 20 minutes. Remove contact lenses, if present, after the first five minutes, then continue rinsing the eye. Consult your eye doctor immediately for care advice.

    Comments about Resist Weekly Retexturizing Foam 4% BHA - 44 ml:

    I love the foam texture and how it dries to an almost undetectable finish. My skin does tingle for a couple of minutes but then it stops. As for smell, I don't know why many have made a fuss about it. It does have an ador but doesn't last long. It's no different than the body BHA cream. The first time I used this I pumped out more than one pump which is recommended for the face, neck and chest. And my neck was red the next morning. But now I only used the one pump and it doesn't irritate my skin. I used the resist Barrier moisturiser afterwards and my skin is flawless and glowing. I have also used the 1 per cent Retinol afterwards too and it works well together.

    I've been using this product for 12 months now and it's made a dramatic difference. I love how it works overnight - I wake up with completely smooth and softer skin. It's like magic! My face is much clearer and brighter, and it keeps wrinkles at bay. My partner has also started using it and has requested his own bottle for traveling. I think he's become addicted too.

      Tried this for a few weeks after not getting results from daily exfoliant. No change to pores or redness. Blackheads still there. Slightly smoother skin but very minimal.

        Comments about Resist Weekly Retexturizing Foam 4% BHA - 44 ml:

        I use this foam about once a week or whenever my skin has some textural problems and needs a good resurface. I tend to get little bumps and rough patches on my face (combination skin) and whenever I use this stuff, my face is so much smoother when I wake up in the morning!! I cannot go without this anymore, really amps up the exfoliation, while I use the 2% as a maintenance. This really gets rid of those other textural problems that my daily 2% can't get. I experience absolutely NO irritation from this and I have very sensitive skin, prone to eczema + breakouts, fun!

            I've been desperately hoping this works. the sample 2% BH lotion seems to work fine but I'm quite disappointed in this product, I've seen more noticeable changes in other products by this time (a few weeks of use) and also found that on application, a noticeable bad smell appears.

                I used this weekly for 6 months with no side effects. Around Christmas I woke up with two very red sore and swollen eyes. I looked like I'd been punched. I stopped using it for a couple of months as I really wanted the benefits promised. Again I have two swollen eyes. It looks awful and I hate looking in the mirror. I've never had particularly sensitive skin.

                    I am seriously thinking this must be a bad batch after all these negative reviews recently. This is another one.

                    I have used a few other of the AHA/BHA products from Paulas Choice with no side effects but after using this product the next day my face is bright red like a tomato (similiar to sunburn) extremely itchy and now leathery looking. I look like i'm 10 years older right now and am very puffy.

                    Not sure if it's normal, but the product smells horrible and the colour of the foam after the first pump is different to the 2nd pump.

                    Really big mistake buying this product - will stick to others I think.

                        I bought this product a while ago, cant remember when. It was ok. Not giving any effective result. However, during the last 10 days I noticed it did irritate my skin ( and I dont have particularly sensitive skin). It coaused dry patches around my mouth and the corners of my mouth were injured. Besides I got a swollen undereye area and eyelids. It took my skin a couple of days to return to normal. Yesterday I applied it again only on my cheeks as these are the areas in need to smooth texture. I woke up with unereye swollen area and a dry patch (even though I did not apply it there). My husband asked me if I have been punched on the eye. This type of reaction has not happened before ( and I use the same bottle). Maybe this product is not stable and expire quickly or the pH level change overtime. I will stick to my 5% and 10% AHA for my textured skin.

                        I have used this product in the past with absolutely amazing results, however like so many other reviews recently, my most recent purchase has been disastrous. It stinks (that's not new), but the next morning I have woken up with inflamed, red, itchy and painful skin. The following days, my skin is extremely dry, papery and really rough to touch. I feel like my skin has aged terribly thanks to this product and am frantically trying to find something to help. After 2 uses (a month a part), I have thrown it in the bin. What a waste of money and a real shame as it's been brilliant in the past.
