Paula Choice Resist Weightless Body Treatment 2% BHA

I’ve using this Weightless Body Treatment with 2% BHA for about 2.5 months and finally feel (and see) it’s effect so I think I’m ready to share my experience with you. However, I doesn’t take before and after picture but you can put your trust on me. I bought product with my own money, and write review purely because I want to share ^____^

I don’t remember how many years I’ve been spent with body-acne problem. They’re spread on my back and top arms. By the years, its’ getting rough and brown. Do I need to say that I don’t like them?

I was helped by The Body Shop Body Polish, but it’s alone is not enough. Since Paula Choice Anti Redness Exfoliating BHA works so well on my face (review later.. *ehm*) I decided to give Resist Weightless Body Treatment 2% BHA a try. Okay it’s expensive (and will be more expensive since USD are raising high compared to IDR) but I put my trust and took the bullet. If you don’t want to, anti redness exfoliating is liquid form of this baby, basically they’re the same. Even Resist Weightless Body Treatment 2% BHA could be use on face too.

Okay, going to review..

Paula Choice Resist Weightless Body Treatment 2% BHA

What it does :
Exfoliates to reveal younger, hydrated skin
Eliminates rough, bumpy skin
Antioxidants help repair sun damage

direction of use, ingredients etc

Directions :
Apply small amount to clean skin. May be used daily for all-over smoothing and exfoliation, or applied to breakout-prone areas as needed. For daytime use, wear under Paula Choice Sunscreen.

Well, I just use it once a day, after my evening shower since I am not using sunscreen on my back and top arms in daytime. They’re just safely hid under my clothes and I am afraid that wrong sunscreen will make my body acne worse.

 At 210ml of product, this baby is HUGE. It’s not something you’d want to carry all along. But if I am travelling, I’d just bring Resist Weightless Body Treatment with 2% BHA and use it for my face and body. I think it’s easier since it’s in cream form.

The product is simply white cream and has hair-styling product scent. Don’t worry, the scent go away easily as you apply it.

I wouldn’t say that I never doubt it. In the end of first month, I feel sad, think that maybe its really not work. But now, I could say that it works slowly but sure. Even today, my acne are still there but far lesser and I have no bumpy skin, just fading scars all around my skin. I would be happy if it could work faster, but maybe I’m asking too much.

This produst is pricey, yes, but after 2.5 months of use, I still have about half bottle. Definitely worth my penny.

Pros :
Clinically proven non irritating (and not irritating on my sensitive skin)
No animal testing
Work slowly but sure
Can be use on face and body
Cream form, easy to travel with even its in HUGE bottle.

Cons :
Hard to get in Indonesia
Bad smell
Need sunscreen companion if you want to use in daytime
Slow works, couldn’t rely on if you want speed healing

Thank you for reading, hopefully you're get what you need :)

Bless Healthy Glow Foundation shade Natural


Finally I managed to back. Well, i was busy reading books. I finally got Indonesian version of Stieg Larsson’s The Girl Who Play with Fire and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest (I have the later in English, but really it’s too hard for me) thanks to Penerbit Mizan! I sent them email right-on-time so I could get the very last book in their stock, thanks Goddess!

Today I will do a short review for my old sample from Bless Indonesia. Back in July, they also sent me this sample along with Acne and Sensitive skin Series. That time, I have too many breakouts so I keep this baby for later. Again, Thank Goddess, my skin is getting better and better so I could test this Healthy Glow Foundation! 

My sample is in 2g sachet, shade Natural. It lasted me for 4 usage, which is nice, means I only need like 0.5g per use.

First time I opened it, I was kinda shock. It’s really yellow, according to my friend, looks like liquid turmeric *LOL. However, I think I need to do swatch test etc etc so I brave my self, put it in my inner arm and do the procedure.  To my surprise, when I blend  it down, the color melt into my skintone. Not too yellow, or too pale, or too gray or too pink, just melt into my skin. Guess that because I have pretty strong yellow undertone.. Then I remembered something that just like this, my Sleek New Skin Revive foundation! It also has strong yellow undertone and match my skin perfectly. However, the packaging is not so helpful and too expensive. So this Healthy Glow Foundation better match for my need considering tube packaging and how easy to get.

indoor lightning, seems not so yellow? Ha.

To make it easier for you, here’s my conclusion..
Pro :
Easy to get in Indonesia (check your local Century or Guardian, or their website :
Cheap (it’s about IDR 70,000 and even cheaper when it’s on sale. Too bad their website is unaccesible now)
Practical tube packaging
Nice oil control (about 2 hours for my oily skin, in somewhat hot weather)
A little goes long
Light and non irritating
Doesn’t cause me breakout
Powdery finish (practical for non powder user)
No white cast even it has SPF
Has no fragrance

Cons :
No idea of it’s availability outside Indonesia
Lack of shade choice (only natural and beige)
Low coverage. No complaining here, I have nice skin to show *hahaha*
Not so glowy as the name suggested
Low SPF number, sunscreen is still needed.

Well, now I have some foundation I need to finish *oow* so I have no short term plan to purchase it. But later, YES YES YES

Have you tried it? How it works for you?
