The RESIST Weekly Retexturising Foaming Treatment with 4% BHA delivers smoother, younger-looking skin in one supercharged formula. This weekly skin saver not only reduces multiple signs of aging, but also fades red marks from breakouts and doubles as a potent solution for stubborn blackheads and keratosis pilaris on arms and legs. Renowned for their impressive array of efficacious BHA exfoliants, Paula’s Choice introduces the first-ever 4% concentration of anti-ageing superstar salicylic acid in a one-of-a-kind liquid-tofoam texture.

RESIST Weekly Resurfacing Treatment with 10% AHA
RESIST Weekly Resurfacing Treatment with 10% AHA is an exclusive, extraordinary resurfacing treatment formulated to reveal youthfully radiant skin overnight. It couples age-fighting antioxidants with 10% glycolic acid—ingredients proven to stimulate healthy collagen production and reduce wrinkles. A unique liquid delivery system, along with innovative soothing anti-inflammatory ingredients, guarantees impressive results that are visible from the first application. In less than two weeks your skin will experience improved texture, colour, tone and a noticeable reduction in the appearance of wrinkles. With ongoing use, skin becomes firmer and is better able to further resist the signs of ageing.
CLINICAL 1% Retinol Treatment
Considered the gold standard in the beauty industry, retinol is a skin-saver that smooths deep wrinkles and fine lines and even fights blemishes and minimizes the appearance of dark spots. This multitasker is the wunderkind of skincare ingredients, but often requires a trip to the dermatologist to get a prescription for dramatic results. Paula’s Choice introduces CLINICAL 1% Retinol Treatment which contains the highest concentration of stabilised retinol available without a prescription. Combined with potent antioxidants, this powerful retinol treatment boosts cell regeneration and stimulates collagen production for dramatically smoother and firmer skin. Crow’s feet and smile lines aren’t the only thing CLINICAL 1% Retinol Treatment can help treat. It can also reduce dark spots, refine pores, and serves as a dual-treatment preventing blemishes and correcting red marks from past breakouts.
FEATURES & BENEFITS:
• Stabilised retinol without a prescription
• Light, silky texture absorbs quickly and goes to work immediately
• Licorice, oat extract and other anti-irritants help to minimise the irritation some people may get from products containing high amounts of retinol
• Improves skin’s firmness and elasticity
• Smooths deep wrinkles and fine lines
Paula’s Choice supercharges vitamin C with the RESIST C15 Super Booster—a concentrated liquid treatment featuring 15% stabilised vitamin C as well as vitamin E, ferulic acid and peptides. Together, these anti-ageing ingredients stimulate collagen production, brighten the complexion, and protect it against environmental damage. This carefully formulated booster contains a silicone base to help stabilise key ingredients while leaving the complexion smooth and radiant. With continued use, skin will become firmer, more resilient, and noticeably more even.
