  1. Thank you so much for this video. I have also been using Paula’s Choice products for a number of years and the products you have mentioned in this video are just about all of my favourites as well! Some other products that are also favourites of mine are the Clear Regular Strength Acne Exfoliant and the Resist Dark Spot Eraser.

    I have recently ordered the new Resist Daily Pore Refining treatment 2%BHA and the Clinical 1% retinol treatment and cannot wait to try them!


  2. Hi Angie, I’m thinking of buying either Resist Super-Light Wrinkle Defense SPF 30 or the Skin Balancing Daily Defense SPF 30. I compare and compare and I just can’t decide. Which one you prefer most for daily usage? I prefer one that has matte finish because I have super oily and super shiny skin. Thanks 🙂

      Hi Irma! Of the two I prefer the Skin Balancing Daily Defense SPF 30 for oily and shiny skin, however since this video I have experienced the RESIST Youth Extending Daily Mattifying Lotion SPF 50 which I currently love the most! I have oily/acne prone skin and this one has been great for my oily and acne prone skin! 🙂 Here is my review if you missed it: Hope that helps Irma! 🙂

  3. Hi Angie, it’s me again. So i decided to give a Skin Balancing SPF a try. I noticed the Resist Youth Extending Daily Mattifying Lotion SPF has the same ingredients as Clear Daily Mattifying SPF and I have tried the Clear one and it gave me cystic acne. So hopefully the Skin Balancing won’t make me breakout.

    I read on your skincare routine post that you use Resist Weekly Resurfacing Treatment 10% AHA but on your 5 fave PC products it’s Resist Weekly Retexturizing Foaming Treatment 4% BHA? Which one do you use now? What’s the different between the two? I have clogged pores that look more like tiny bumps. I want to get rid those bumps and smooth my skin texture. I was thinking of trying the Resist 10% AHA but i’m not so sure because i read that AHA is for dry skin? Between the Resist 10% AHA and 4% BHA which one would you suggest? Or is there any other products?

      Hi Irma! Happy 2015! My apologies for the tardy response – I’ve been away from work for a couple of weeks but I’m back at it again! 🙂
      I’m sorry to hear the at the Clear Daily Mattifying SPF didn’t work for you – that’s too bad! I like to switch back and forth between the Skin Balancing and the Resist Youth Extending one now, although I do have to admit I’m favoring the Resist Youth Extending SPF lately!
      Regarding the AHA and BHA you mentioned, I actually like to use both! I still use the Resist Weekly Resurfacing treatment 10% AHA once a week (usually on a Friday night!) or anytime I’m feeling like my skin needs a little smoothing. It is recommended for Dry or Very Dry Skin because it is so gentle, but all skin types can use it. I just love the way it makes my skin feel the next day and my makeup goes on more smoothly too! Regarding the Resist Weekly Retexturizing Foaming Treatment 4% BHA that is just a stronger concentration (and also time-released) form of BHA (Salicylic Acid) which I find helps immensely with my acne-prone skin (which I’m going through a bout of as we speak!) 🙁 This product also helps blackheads and cleans out the pores. This product I use 2-3 times per week all over my skin.
      If you are looking for something to clear out the hard white bumps I would definitely recommend the PC RESIST BHA9 spot treatment. I have an older post sharing how it removed one of those hard bumps on my eyelid ( ). It is more potent than the other forms of BHA from PC so I would suggest just using it as a spot treatment. It does take several treatments but you will start to feel the white bump loosen enough to be extracted easily (without harming the skin) if you are patient. I also use this to help fade post-acne marks as well.

      Hopefully this was helpful to you and Irma! Again, my apologies for being so late with my response. Take care! – Angie
