RESIST Instant Smoothing Anti-Aging Foundation blends skin-beneficial antioxidants and repairing ingredients in a creamy yet lightweight liquid formula that’s appropriate for all skin types. This blends beautifully to create a more even-looking skin tone, and sets to a soft satin finish that provides medium coverage while visibly reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The antioxidants in this foundation stimulate collagen and repair sun-damaged skin so it can look and act younger.

As with all Paula’s Choice products, this is fragrance-free because that’s what’s best for skin. The shade range includes options for fair to tan skin, and samples are available to help you determine your best match.

This dual-action liquid foundation brings proven anti-aging benefits to your makeup. It instantly smooths fine lines and imparts a luminous, natural-looking radiance, for a noticeably younger, more even complexion. Specialized ingredients boost skin's ability to fight environmental damage, so you will see skin that not only looks younger but acts younger as well. Experience a healthy, flawless, complexion that glows—and becomes healthier with each use.

Disclosure: In addition to reviewing thousands of cosmetic products from hundreds of brands over the past 30 years, Paula also has her own line of products called Paula's Choice. Paula and her team's goal is to help you find the best products possible for your skin whether they are from Paula's Choice or some other product line. Paula's commitment to this is so strong she is the only cosmetics company owner in the world that recommends products other than her own. Paula and the Paula's Choice Research Team formulate our products to meet or exceed the criteria we use to review products from every other brand on this site. We review all products the same way using the same research, objective comments, and praise no matter whose product it is.

Paula's Choice was created in 1995 in response to the many readers who asked Paula to develop her own products. Given Paula's unique overview of the cosmetics industry, 30+ years of research, and earnest desire to help people find the best products for their skin-care needs, creating her own products was a natural extension of her work. Paula's Choice range of products are designed to meet the needs and preferences of just about every skin type and concern imaginable using only proven ingredients substantiated by published research.

Paula's Choice products provide:

  • State-of-the-art formulas based on reliable, published skin-care research

  • Environmentally-friendly products that feature minimalist packaging that ensures product efficacy
  • 100% Customer Satisfaction Guarantee from our world-class Customer Service Team

Paula's Choice products and Paula's work is routinely praised by noted dermatologists and other professionals. New York-based dermatologist Dr. Debra Jaliman stated that "I have a lot of respect for Paula Begoun and the way she thoroughly researches her subject. Her recommendations about cosmetics and skin care are deservedly influential." Eminent Seattle-based dermatologist Dr. Brandith Irwin concurs: "She takes a complex subject and makes it easy to understand!"

    Perfect Match
    • One of my first buys was this foundation. I am level 3. I love the pump which gives just enough for the face. I actually use around a pea size. The color is a perfect match and blends beautifully. Over the years have tried it all but this one is a winner. So far I love all of Paula's products and hope to see a more complete line of cosmetics soon! The price is definitely right and I have never looked better!

    Simply cannot blend
    • I really don't understand why the texture of this foundation is so thick! Isn't it possible to use all these wonderful antioxidants in a much thinner consistency like the Best Face Forward foundation? With a dry sponge, wet sponge, fingers, brush or primer loaded with silicone's this foundation still settles into fine lines and accentuates patches of dry skin around the nose etc and yes I do use an exfoliant. The only positive comment I can make about this foundation is the shade range.

    Too hard to use
    • I was extremely disappointed with this foundation as it was impossible to blend evenly on my skin and it just looked awful.

    Colour Shades
    • I ordered the Light/Medium and Medium samples. The Light/Medium was too light and the Medium had an orange tint. I'd use this product (I liked how it felt and how it applied) if there were better/more colour shades.

    Great option for very fair skin
    • I've used Paula's Choice for years because her foundations are one of the few options available to gals who have VERY fair skin. If you are a "pale face" like me, give this a try -- you won't be disappointed.
