Sun protection advice when using any AHA exfoliant: This product contains alpha hydroxy acids, ingredients that may increase your skin's sensitivity to the sun and the possibility of sunburn. Always apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen rated SPF 30 or greater every day. When outdoors, wear protective clothing whenever possible, seek shade, and avoid prolonged sun exposure.
Thank you for submitting your review! It will be reviewed by our staff before it is posted.I cannot believe the difference I have seen on myself. My first file line on the face, has faded by 60-65%, I'm confident it will fade more. But this is not what's impressive. I had chest and cleavage wrinkles, to the point I was ready to have a laser treatment. I earned them way before my time, because I was too harsh with soap and cleanliness. And guess what? They are gone now. Poof! I was never impressed with a beauty product before, I'm so happy for the results, thank you from the bottom of my heart!!!!!!! 100%
Hi Blossomofsnow! We are so happy to hear that the Resist Anti-Aging 10% AHA Exfoliant has helped to reduce your fine lines and wrinkles. Thank you for sharing your experience! If you would like advice on other products do not hesitate to get in touch. Kind regards, Adele - Paula's Choice Customer CareHats off to the team who formulated this product, I've had 10% AHA lotions in the past, mainly glycolic, really stinging and this one doesn't sting at all. It didn't even feel like an exfoliant until I woke up glowing this morning. Great packaging too.
Hi Marti2021! Great to hear that the Skin Revealing Body Lotion 10% AHA left you glowy without any stinging. We love this product for the same reason. Kind regards, Adele - Paula's Choice Skin CareVery good product. After just 1 week my skin looked smoother. This product is the one with the fastest result of all the Resist and Clinical products I have tried and still useWhat can I say? It delivers on all the promises. I saw the change in my skin immediately and results that I was hoping to see with retinol. People with oily skin shouldn’t be scared to use it, just pair it with a light moisturizer and it will be great. I just want Paula to make a supercharged version of this with higher strengths of AHA and BHA as a weekly treatment

Why did we choose to use a blend of AHAs?
We wanted to create a product that harnessed the integrated power of multiple acids. The idea was to formulate a product with acids that have different molecular sizes and that each work a little differently on skin. Here’s a breakdown:
- Glycolic Acid – penetrates skin rapidly and stimulates collagen production.
- Lactic Acid – an exfoliant that also enhances skin hydration.
- Malic Acid – promotes surface exfoliation and has some antioxidant properties.
- Tartaric Acid – assists the exfoliation process. Also contributes to buffer the system to help maintain the pH
Can it be mixed with other products for application?
We recommend using this product alone after your toner.
Is it suitable for those with rosacea-prone skin?
In general, a BHA exfoliant is more suitable for rosacea-prone skin types than an AHA exfoliant because of its anti-inflammatory properties. However, this Resist Anti-Aging 10% AHA Exfoliant also contains 0.5% BHA (salicylic acid) and other beneficial anti-irritants to help soothe skin. So, if you have rosacea-prone skin and you want to boost your exfoliation this is a great option.
This product contains lactic acid, can people with lactose intolerance use this product?
It is safe to use this product if you are lactose intolerant because intolerance occurs within the digestive system (small intestine). Lactic acid absorbed by the skin should not affect the digestive system in anyway.
Creamy cleanser gently yet effectively removes dirt and makeup for clean, smooth skin.
Gentle, milky toner offers superior hydration while minimising the appearance of wrinkles.
Antioxidant serum with vitamin C works to firm, brighten and improve uneven skin tone.
Protects skin from the sun and improves skin tone.
Hydrating moisturiser with 0.01% retinol combats signs of ageing & reduces fine lines and wrinkles.
