    Comments about RESIST Anti-Aging Clear Skin Hydrator:

    I have been using Paula's Choice products for many years and I have now added a lovely moisturizer to my regime. My face drinks in the gel, never feels greasy and is very light. I only use it at night, my preference. I often receive compliments on my skin. I only use Paula's Choice, always wear sunscreen and a wide brimmed hat and never wear make-up. Thanks to Paula and her team for great products and reasonable prices.

      I have extremely sensitive, acne-prone, combination skin and this moisturizer is perfect for me. I've been using this product for a few years now and it helps to curb my break outs that occur once a month. I'd definitely recommend trying this product.

      Comments about RESIST Anti-Aging Clear Skin Hydrator:

      I received a few samples of this as I regularly purchase the skin balance invisible moisturizer gel for combination skin, BHA 2%, and calm redness relief serum. I have combination skin with rosacea that causes acne. I struggled with finding products all my life till I found Paul's choice.
      I tried this repair moisturizer to compare with the gel one I use. I find it perfect as a night cream. My skin feels smoothe and less red. However, its heavier and not good for day time use. I found my skin looking greasy after a few hours. I will purchase this for nighttime as I think it does a better job and stick to the invisible gel during the day.

        Comments about RESIST Anti-Aging Clear Skin Hydrator:

        I have been using this product nightly for three years. I absolutely LOVE it. My skin around my eyes and cheeks is incredibly soft and I've noticed wrinkles and spots have faded. It lasts a LONG time but like others have commented the packaging is just awful. The pump sputters and often doesn't work and it's impossible to see how much product is left. I also felt like with my previous order the pump was much lighter, which made it seem like the bottle wasn't full. I didn't like that at all. If I didn't love the product so much I would not continue to purchase it with such a defective bottle. I hope PC listens to the feedback on these reviews and changes the packaging for this fabulous product. I have tried much more expensive night creams and always come back to this one.

        Awesome Ingredients - Not Hydrating Enough For Me

        Comments about RESIST Anti-Aging Clear Skin Hydrator:

        I actually really like this product except the main reason I bought it which is to hydrate my skin. What I love about this product is that is feels very soothing when first applying, it does not leave my skin red or irritated what-so-ever which I have always had a hard time in finding with a moisturizer, the ingredients (along w/ other PC products I am using to help w/ my skin issues) have greatly faded my acne scarring, reduced pore size, and even skin tone and I have not had any issues with the pump as other people have described. The couple things I don't like is that the formula is heavier than I usually go for. I get oily through out the day but I have dry spots on my skin when it is not hydrated well. This feels great at first and then after a minute I can feel dry spots around my nose, cheek bones, around my mouth which I then add more moisturizer to but I never have that really moisturized feel and I still have dry patches when applying makeup. For me it does leave a sheen/greasy finish that I don't prefer. I think is an amazing product for certain skin types that don't need penetrating moisture but unfortunately did not hydrate for me as I need.

        Service and delivery comments:

        I received my shipment of products quickly - quicker than the tracking predicted (which I was so happy about!!!). They were packaged well and protect inside.

          Great moisturizer. Light weight for me for the summer. I use it at night. The problem is the packaging. It doesn't pump out of the airless pump. I have to open it up, which defeats the purpose of protecting the ingredients, and get it out by sticking a q-tip in. Disappointing for the price of the product. I would not recommend it unless the packaging is fixed.

            I can't tell you how many dollars I've wasted on trying to find the best moisterizer. I finally found it. This stuff makes my skin feel AMAZING. Plump and the softest it's ever felt. I have the best skin of my life after starting using PC products. I have combination skin prone to acne. I use the Resist cleanser for combination skin, followed by the corresponding Resist toner, then Clear 2% BHA salicylic acid exfolient, then Clear regular strength benzoyl peroxide treatment, Resist eye cream, then lastly this moisterizer. My skin has never looked/felt this good. My only complaint about this product is the packaging! Which isn't that big of a deal to me anyway. Amazing stuff.

              I have been loving this moisturizer nightly for approximately 4 years. I've occasionally tried other brands, just to insure I'm not missing any "revolutionary new products", but always quickly return to my Paulas Choice skin care regime. As the saying goes...don't try to fix what ain't broke.
              I have never experienced any problem with the dispenser, other than not knowing when I will run out. I now order a new bottle every three months or so, that way there is always a new one waiting for me.

                I don't normally write reviews, but wow, is this stuff great! I can see and feel a noticeable difference in my skin after I started using this product. It's a lot smoother and softer and has gotten less oily! One pump goes a long way; it doesn't look like enough product to cover your face but I promise it is! I am even able to cover most of my neck as well. This product, along with occasional use of the higher concentration vitamin C cream, has helped clear up acne discoloration significantly. For reference, I use the Skin Balancing cleanser in the morning with the Clear line of products (exfoliation solution, clearing solution, and moisturizing liquid) and then use the Clear line (minus the moisturizing liquid) and this moisturizer at night. My skin looks pretty dang good despite the high stress of medical school!

                Like others, I'm not thrilled with the packaging. It's impossible to tell when this will run out and it's a bit pricey, especially since you can't really gauge how fast you are using it. BUt overall I'm still happy with this product.

                Comments about RESIST Anti-Aging Clear Skin Hydrator - 1.7 oz:

                I feel really bad about leaving such a low rating for this product, because the moisturizer works very well, but the packaging is awful! I have normal to dry skin that is very sensitive and lately has been more acne prone. I wanted an effective moisturizer to use at night that wasn't so emollient that it would clog my pores, but that would still provide enough hydration. This product was nearly perfect, but the packing will prevent me from ever repurchasing.

                This moisturizer comes with a pump that uses an "air vacuum" to dispense the product, instead of a normal pump with a straw tube that goes down into the product. I had no trouble getting the product out the very first time I used it, but the second night I could not get the product out! I went to the Paula's Choice website for a solution, thinking maybe I had gotten a defective bottle. I read about the air vacuum pump and how to "prime" the pump to get the product to dispense if the pump stops working. I spent a ridiculous amount of time trying to prime the bottle to get the product to come out, with no luck. I know it is not good for the product or sanitary, but I eventually had to open up the bottle and scrap out the moisturizer. Every night since I have had the same problem, I try over and over to prime the bottle, and eventually give up and have to open the packaging. I really hope that Paula's Choice will change the pump on this as otherwise it is the perfect solution for someone who needs a good nighttime moisturizer that won't clog pores!
