Review of PAULA’S CHOICE Resist Weightless Body Treatment 2% BHA

Posted on February 26, 2013


As we were a huge fan of Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting Exfoliant 2% BHA Liquid, it was natural for us to dwell further into their vast skin care range. Next stop … Paula’s Choice RESIST Weightless Body Treatment 2% BHA. Here is our product review of it:

Paulas-Choice-resist-weightless-body-treatment-with-2-percent-bha-lotion-skincareFrom the manufacturer’s webpage description, this body exfoliant with 2% Beta Hydroxy Acid (commonly referred to as salicylic acid in cosmetics) is effective for fighting acne breakouts, promoting anti-aging benefits, treating Keratosis Pilaris (a skin condition in which keratin skin protein forms hard plugs within hair follicles resulting in small bumps resembling “goose bumps”), and diminishing skin redness in general. It’s for all skin types, clinically proven to be non-irritating, and 100% fragrance free with no added dyes.

First of all, we would like to stress that this body treatment works wonders fighting body zits. We can confidently say that RESIST is the ideal product for acne-breakout prone skin from the neck down. Just even after a week of use, one of our staff reviewers bacne problem dissipated substantially. Normally we find that all products with salicylic acid dry out the skin making it flaky and irritated. However this Paula’s Choice body lotion with 2% BHA intensely hydrated our skin to a much desired silky and non-greasy matte finish. We have been posting a lot of bacne treatments and tips these past months and using this product certainly should be part of anyone’s bacne solution.

As far as effectively treating Keratosis Pilaris, the answer is YES! This body skincare product just even after a week of use reduced all “chicken skin” into smooth, clear, and even-toned skin. Not only is your skin improved but your confidence will too!

RESIST is also packed with antioxidants to fight aging. However I would suggest that this product be purchased mainly for treating acne and bumpy skin. There is a slight aroma with this lightweight liquid body exfoliant that fades away within a minute post-application. The product glides on easily and spreads like warm butter on toast.

Key ingredients are: chamomile, green tea, vitamin E, Cucumis melo (melon) fruit extract, allantoin, BHA (beta hydroxy acid), bisabolol, salicylic acid.
