Review Overview

Resist Advanced Replenishing Toner is an antioxidant-rich, milky toner that is loaded with proven anti-aging ingredients for younger-looking skin. This concentrated blend of ingredients restores and smoothes aging skin, helping it produce healthy collagen and reverse the signs of sun damage. No irritating alcohol or fragrance here, which is wonderful, because both are actually pro-aging!

This toner, which is ideal for normal to very dry or sensitive skin, makes skin feel beautifully soft and look healthy. As with all toners, this helps remove the last traces of makeup, but it goes above and beyond by also providing the essential substances aging skin needs to reduce wrinkles, quell redness, and improve skin tone.

Without question, this is one of the most state-of-the-art toners we've seen, and it can be a great addition to your anti-aging skincare routine.

Pros:
  • Concentrated anti-aging ingredients help reduce wrinkles and improve skin tone.
  • Helps reverse the signs of sun damage.
  • Soothing, milky texture for normal to very dry skin.
  • Leaves skin soft.
  • Fragrance-free; well-suited for sensitive skin.
Cons:
  • None.

Disclosure: Paula Begoun is creator of Beautypedia and founder of Paula's Choice Skincare products. Reviewing thousands of skincare and makeup products over the past 30 years, both on this site and in her best-selling books, Paula's mission has always been to help consumers find the best products possible for their skin. The Beautypedia Team proudly and unequivocally maintains this commitment. In addition, The Beautypedia Team reviews all products using the same rating standards and criteria, whether it is a Paula's Choice product or another brand.

Paula's Choice Skincare was established in 1995 when best-selling beauty author and consumer advocate Paula Begoun (known as The Cosmetics Cop) decided to develop her own products. Like most of us, she was fed up with products that overpromised results, cost a lot of money, and failed to deliver—or made matters worse!

As a natural evolution of Paula's personal mission to help consumers find the best products for their skin, the line has grown into an extensive range of skincare and makeup products that are formulated to meet the needs of almost every skin type and skin concern imaginable. From acne to wrinkles, oily skin, rosacea, large pores, eczema, redness, sagging, dry skin, and on and on, Paula's Choice offers a solution.

Paula's Choice Skincare stands apart from other cosmetics brands. The formulas contain only ingredients that have substantiated, published research showing they are beneficial and effective—so you get visible results. Stable packaging is another feature of the brand, using innovative, opaque, and air-tight or air-restrictive components that keep antioxidants and other light- and air-sensitive ingredients from breaking down (unlike jar packaging, which compromises what might otherwise be an effective formula). The line is also 100% fragrance-free, which is best for all skin types, especially for those with sensitive skin or rosacea.

From cleansers to broad-spectrum sunscreens to anti-aging serums to specialized treatments, Paula's Choice Skincare has you covered from head to toe with innovative, state-of-the-art products. The brand also offers professional-quality makeup products including concealer, foundation, eyeshadow, lipstick, and more. (Paula started out as a makeup artist so she definitely knows her way around a face!)

Paula's Choice Skincare does not test on animals and also takes an environmentally friendly approach by featuring minimalist, recyclable packaging. Another plus—the Customer Service team is among the best in the industry, offering a "100% satisfaction or your money back" guarantee.

Why are all Paula's Choice Skincare products rated highly? The Paula's Choice Skincare Team would not launch a product unless it was worthy of a high rating from The Beautypedia Team. Paula and The Beautypedia Team were researching and reviewing products long before Paula's Choice Skincare ever existed and consumers were constantly requesting a skincare brand that met all of Beautypedia's criteria. As a result, The Paula's Choice Skincare Team was created and uses the same research and criteria to formulate Paula's Choice products as The Beautypedia Team uses to review products.

Soothing and refreshing

Love this toner. My skin is very dry and sensitive. This toner is soothing and feels good on my face and neck. It absorbs quickly without excessive drying or tightening of the skin. I use it daily both morning and evening routines.

LOVE IT - But have a question

I love, love, LOVE this product. I have combination skin and it does just fine with me - no breakouts and my skin just drinks it up. I had a question - I was under the impression that exfoliating products were to be put on right after washing & drying, in order for them to work in the effective pH range. Would applying this toner before the BHA/AHA reduce the effectiveness of the BHA/AHA? Should I apply the toner after the BHA/AHA? Thanks and I love this product!

Hello, and thanks for the question! You absolutely can apply your exfoliate after using this toner without it impacting its effectiveness.
