    FINALLY!! The search for the right facial care products is OVER! What a relief!
    Resist for normal to oily skin is a perfect match for my 49 years old sensitive combination skin with noticeable pores. The very next day after my initial application, a friend took notice and said, "Wow, you look so bright and beautiful today!" Bingo! After 4 days of use I felt compelled to write a review for others who have been searching their whole lives for the right products. Ladies & gentlemen, this is it - search NO more! My pores are smaller, skin feels velvety smooth and moisturized, the tone is brighter and more even and the crepy eyelids & darkness around my eyes is already improved due to the Resist Anti Aging Eye Gel I bought with the collection. 100% satisfied. Don't "resist" buying this kit. Haha.

      Comments about RESIST Advanced Kit for Normal to Oily Skin - Advanced Kit:

      I began using this package about a year ago and I have been amazed by the results. Since I was in 5th grade (age 10/11) until I began using this (age 21), I had terrible skin with unmanageable breakouts that only worsened at random intervals and never went away. Any small change in diet, hormones, stress, etc. would result in weeks of embarrassing splotches. I contacted the professionals here at Paula's Choice - who were very patient, understanding, and knowledgable - and they recommended this package. Now, for the first time since middle school, I am comfortable and confident leaving the house without makeup. It takes a couple weeks to work its magic, but it is worth the wait! I love not having to apply as much makeup and my stress level has decreased while my body image has increased. Nothing says confidence boost like fresh, clean, blemish-free skin!

      Comments about RESIST Advanced Kit for Normal to Oily Skin - Advanced Kit:

      I have mainly had clear skin my entire life with minimal breakouts until now. I got pregnant at the age of 23 and my skin went haywire. My skin goes from oily to dry in a matter of months and I have a hard time keeping it balanced. I have large pores and fine lines. I'm now 25 and lately, I have had more than 15 breakouts at a time around my mouth and chin. I've been trying everything including benzoyl peroxide and salasylic acid and it wasn't even touching it. I got this system and used it ONCE so far, last night. I'm not even kidding, I woke up to almost complete clear skin. My breakouts significantly faded and are much smaller and less noticeable. This is all after one use. My skin feels softer and my pores are smaller. I am ecstatic to continue using this system and cannot wait to see the long term results. I even came on here last night and bought the 1% retinol! I will tell any and everyone I know that has skin issues to try this!! The only thing I noticed was a strange smell with the 4% BHA weekly treatment. If you're on the fence about spending the money, just do it. I'm telling you, one night and it has changed my life! You could always try the $7 sample kit and you will see that you NEED THIS IN YOUR LIFE. 100% satisfied.

      Comments about RESIST Advanced Kit for Normal to Oily Skin - Advanced Kit:

      I had high hopes for the Advance resist set! Using since oct 10th

      Cleanser: LOVE this item, I make my husband wash his face with it too and the skin feels soft and hydrated. Cleans everything if you use it right. even make up.

      Toner: definitely works to clean,but drys skin very much if no moisturizer apply after.

      Exfoliant: I dont see a difference with this one, I started with the basics as recommended: Cleanser, toner, moisturizer. Then after a week I started with this one and no difference was made, and now still nothing new.

      Moisturizer night: the only thing I can say it does work to minimize new pimples and hidrate completly. BUT i have oily skin and this one was sooo greasy all day, not once did my face feel good, its very heavy feeling for some reason I would get hot and sweat after using it, even with the AC on. So i would use it only in acne during the day and all over my face during the night. I tried putting less product, still the same. And the smell lingers all day too. very strong sent. It definitely works for current acne, not for old acne scars.

      Retexturizing foam: This one is AMAZING, I saw a difference after 2 uses. Old scars faded away completely. Use 1 a week, let it sink 10 min, then apply moisturizer and go to bed. The bad thing is the smell, is horrible, like a dead animal, even my husband can smell it. But I will definitely repurchase this one after mine runs out.

      Serum: I noticed that the nights I used this one, new pimples would show up, specially around my nose where is most greasy. So I stopped using it.

      Moisturizer day: This one felt soooo greasy all day too, so I did not use it even 3 days. Also I dont go out during the day so no SPF needed.

      Definetly repurchasing the Cleanser, Toner, Foam and Moisturizer :)
      Thank you!

      Comments about RESIST Advanced Kit for Normal to Oily Skin - Advanced Kit:

      First off, this line is absolutely wonderful and I was ecstatic to finally see that it had come out as a complete set with the Cleanser, Toner and the BHA.

      My skin is combo, perhaps bipolar at times lol... one day it's normal, the next their can be dry patches and slight oiliness, aw well. I rarely suffer actual pimples (but spot treat with Benzoyl or BHA 9% when I do), though my major issues are uneven skin tone, blackheads blanketing my center forehead (super old and subborn), nose and cheeks.

      The cleanser is very gentle, creamy and never really "foamed" when I just used it with my washcloth, but since using Konjac sponges it lathers easily and builds a nice soothing foamy lather. My skin feels clean, refreshed and smooth afterwards, never tight or dry.

      The toner is great as well, very light and dries/absorbs reasonably fast and is not sticky/tacky which is a major pet-peeve of mine. I just tap a bit out of the bottle onto a cotton swab, swish across my face and I'm ready for my BHA.

      The 2% BHA has been awesome in comparison to when I used to use the Skin Balancing 2% BHA (which unfortunately did leave a very sticky/tacky feel on my skin). The Resist BHA is surprisingly light, gentle, glides very well and absorbs super quick and there is never ever any tackiness, double plus for me! I tend to use this day and night, but on an every other rotation along with 8% AHA 3-4 times a week or the 9% BHA at night.

      At night, these are followed by a drop or two of the Serum which I will usually mix with 2 pumps of the Clear Skin Hyrdator, both of which are lovely in hydrating, absorbing, and gliding across skin effortlessly. During the day, I use the Serum along with the Super-Light Daily SPF 30 (which I absolutely love love love and have a very detailed review on that separately that I will omit for this "kit" review).

      Lastly I've been adding in my sample of the Hyaluronic Acid which I use about 2 drops of to dab on and around the bags below my eyes and my worry lines between the brows and on my forehead. This serum is clear, sort of a liquid-y gel, very silky and easy to apply... after just using for 4-5 days I am starting to notice some slight evening of the bags, but I now that hyaluronic acid is not a permanent fix, something you need to continue using the reap it's benefits.

      With Paula's great products, it's a no brainer that my skin tone has improved dramatically, my skin is "brighter" and more glowing, fresh and healthy looking. My pores seem to be a bit smaller (which I contribute to the cleanser and toner) and my blackheads appear much lighter, not so dark and prominent, though the battle with those does continue and I may be looking at professional extraction in the near future (followed by my trusty BHA of course!). And due to this I'm in the midst of adding one the the 1% Retinol treatments into my rotation.

      ***My final thoughts, and the sole reason I gave 4/5 stars*** The Cleanser, Toner and BHA absolutely NEED bigger sizes made available (just like the Skin Balancing line offers). I use (most) of these products twice a day, and only 1 pump of the cleanser each time, but these are barely lasting me a month.

      I understand these are different, more refined formulations in comparison to say the Skin Balancing Line so price would obviously reflect that in larger sizes, but having the option to purchase a 14-16oz bottle of the Cleanser, a 6oz bottle of the Toner and a 4oz of the BHA would be MUCH more convenient. My last suggestion, as others have mentioned, it would be amazing to have a clear strip on the side of the Hydrator bottle (like the BHA 9% has) so that we can evaluate the amount of product left and order accordingly prior to running out.

      As always, thank you Paula & your team for making such amazing products that deliver the results they claim. This line is spectacular for wacky skin like mine and I hope that you never change any of the formulations.

        Comments about RESIST Advanced Kit for Normal to Oily Skin - Advanced Kit:

        I am so thankful that I took a leap of faith and bought my first supply of this line about a year ago after being disappointed by some very pricey brands a lot of times. Since then I have repurchased and repurchased. This is the only product line that is able to control my breakouts and fight wrinkles at the same time. All the products I've tried before did only one thing if anything leaving my skin either too greasy or too dry. In combination with facial massage and exercises I can say that my breakouts have diminished to none and my wrinkles have improved dramatically. Never has my skin looked better! The line is very easy to use and doesn't take a long time to get used to the routine. Stick to the routine and it won't take long before you see dramatic results! also use the bha 9 spot treatment, vitamin C and hyaluronic acid booster as well as their benzoyl peroxide and and skin brightening treatment. I also love the masks! Love all your products, your tips for using and everything you do! Thank you Paula!

        I have dry to combo skin and the cleanser in this kit is fab. As is most of the kit. The only thing that didn't suit my skin was the toner. It stung. I also prefer the Clear SPF better.

        Comments about RESIST Advanced Kit for Normal to Oily Skin - Advanced Kit:

        I have extremely oily skin with minimal to no breakouts. I was told that the BHA was good for oily skin. I have been using daily since purchased. I haven't noticed any difference in my oily skin yet but I am going to wait it out some longer to see how it works. I have used the weekly Retexturizing Foaming Treatment twice since bought and it smells like raw fish. Is that normal?

        Comments about RESIST Advanced Kit for Normal to Oily Skin - Advanced Kit:

        My skin feels amazing when using this. I have awfully oily skin especially in the South Carolina summer. When I use this set my skin actually feels normal...instead of feeling like my makeup is literally sliding off. I love trying different skin care products when new products come out (high end and drugstore.) so I have tried a lot but I never really thought anything lived up to claims...this is different. I am so excited to see where this takes my skin in the long term.

        AMAZING RESULTS!!!

        Comments about RESIST Advanced Kit for Normal to Oily Skin - Advanced Kit:

        FINALLY something that treats ALL of my skin issues! I started using this set 3 months ago & began seeing results immediately. I added in the BH9, 2.5% BP, & Skin Balancing Mask & began to, literally, see my pores purging out all the blackheads & white heads. I have yet to find the right balance of exfoliation for my skin, & my regular cotton washcloth was taking off too many layers, so I started using a very gentle microfiber/bamboo blend washcloth, which has only enhanced the amazing results.
