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 moisturised, 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 favourite, 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 moisturiser. For daytime, follow with a broad-spectrum sunscreen rated SPF 15 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 15 or greater every day. When outdoors, wear protective clothing whenever possible, seek shade, and avoid prolonged sun exposure.

Ratings & Reviews

Skin on my arms better after first use


I'm in my fifties and have nice skin everywhere except the skin on my forearms has visible sun damage. It feels lumpy, bumpy and has dry patches, freckles, sun spots and light and dark pigmentation. I chose this with 10% AHA as I was happy with PC face products and after reading the reviews. The skin on my arms felt better after the first use and has stayed smooth and soft. The appearance is getting better with each use but I have realistic expectations of what a cream can do. I know the damage is done and I should have looked after my arms a log time ago. I haven't noticed any fragrance with this product as some have mentioned in their reviews.

Resist Skin Revealing Body Lotion - Fantastic !


This product was fantastic. Have tried so many products, but this removed "barnacles" - i.e. red spots off my legs. I always use a fake tan, and it used to grab to the spots. I applied before going to bed, and it worked !

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!

Helps post-menopausal skin issues


Seldom take time to write reviews, but this product's great. Dry patches are much lessened, scars are fading, dryness is eased and skin in very soft. Could you recommend a lightweight non-SPF moisturizer to go with it?

Immediate results after one application


Yesterday after my shower, I used this lotion on my legs for the first time just before going to dinner with my husband. During the drive to the restaurant, I felt my legs just out of curiosity. I could tell an immediate difference in the softness and smoothness of my lower legs. I even told my husband to feel. He simply said, "Wow!" I totally agree - WOW! I always moisturize my legs after my shower and have been finding that it is not enough (could it be because I am 47 years old???); my legs would still look dry. You know that "look" of dryness on your legs even after moisturizing (if you have dry skin you know exactly what I'm talking about). It is so frustrating and very unattractive. I think this lotion is going to be my ONLY lotion!!! Today is day 2 and WOW still! Just get it and try it - P'sC has an excellent try it or return it policy.

Amazing stuff - like shedding your old skin


I put this on before bedtime. I wake up with smooth, soft renewed skin. This stuff is magic for someone living in a cold climate like eastern Canada.

Transformed My Skin!


This product saved my skin! For years I struggled with under the skin bumps that would occansionally turn into pimples, but would mostly just stay hard bumps that created noticeable texture, especially on my chin. I tried what felt like everything to get these bumps to go away but nothing has worked as well as this product. The annoying bumps on my chin are GONE and my skin has never looked better. I use this all over my face every night, after cleansing and followed with a moisturizer. Normally any sort of treatment leaves my face extremely dry and sensitive but this has made my skin softer and I've never noticed any drying. If you've struggled with hard bumps and ugly texture, this product is your savior! I have never been this confident with my skin!

I wanted an AHA lotion for my extra dry sun spots that I have acquired on my arms and legs after years of poorly protected sun exposure. I first tried a somewhat cheaper (but not cheap) drugstore AHA body lotion. This lotion did nothing more than moisturize my skin. That in itself isn't a negative, but I was purchasing it for more than that. The extra cost does not warrant a repurchase for that quality alone when there are cheaper and just as effective products available. I have since tried and become a devoted user of Paula's Choice RESIST Skin Revealing Body Lotion With 10% AHA. Since I've switched, those itchy and dry sun spots have abated. What once were red and noticeable spots on my arms and legs are now virtually non-existent. I don't particularly like the "unscented" scent of this lotion, but it's mild and I usually top it off with a scented lotion of my liking.
