    Comments about RESIST Barrier Repair Moisturizer with Retinol:

    I don't know why I haven't reviewed this before. This is an absolute mainstay in my routine. I started using the Resist line several years ago and have been so pleased. I might swap some elements in and out (serums or exfoliators, for example), but I have stuck with this.

    As the last step in my nighttime routine, this stuff is simply perfect. It is light, smooth, elegant, and soothing, no matter what shape my skin is in. It has not fought with any product I've used (even those that did not work for me). It starts to melt just from the warmth of my hands and soaks right into my skin. No stickiness, greasiness, or bad smell. And it works!

    I am mid-50s, with slightly dry/sensitive skin. I have some wrinkles and old sun damage. I have also struggled with some annoyances such as menopausal acne, texture issues, and sun sensitivity, and have worked through various solutions. Right now though, thanks to the Resist line, my skin is in the best shape ever. I owe a lot of that to this moisturizer.

    This. This! I suspect I will continue to use this forever. I rarely say that about any product because I love trying new things, but honestly, why mess with what works and works well?

      Comments about RESIST Barrier Repair Moisturizer with Retinol:

      I love this product but one day I noticed what appeared to be glitter all over my face. What was happening was that the raised silver writing on the container was flaking off and I imagine transferring from my hands to my face. Really difficult to get off your face once it has attached to the moisturizer. Iive gotten around this by wrapping a tissue around the bottle and scotch taping it. I like the product enough to continue using it. Hope they can fix the packaging.

      Not for my skin I guess

      Comments about RESIST Barrier Repair Moisturizer with Retinol - 1.7 oz:

      I purchased a bunch of samples of both this product and the Resist Intensive Repair Moisturizer with the intention of deciding which one I'd like to use as an eye cream. The samples lasted forever since I was only using them around my eye area, so after several months my eye lids became really dry. I used more. They became dryer. Then they became chapped; started to peel; turned red. Finally I stopped using them, but my eye area wouldn't clear up, but spread and became swollen. I finally had to go to the doctor who surmised the retinol must have been the irritant. A drying agent in a moisturizer. Didn't work for me, though obviously works for some people.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Excellent service; prompt delivery, as always.

      Best Uses

        Comments about RESIST Barrier Repair Moisturizer with Retinol - 1.7 oz:

        I used this moisturizer for almost 3 months with no improvement in my acne and wrinkles. I bought this hoping for something that would decrease the few wrinkles I have and prevent new ones from forming. I also have acne, and I was hoping the retinol would help that as well. This product definitely made matters worse for my skin. I know it was this product because right after I stopped using it and started using something else my skin cleared up and my wrinkles got less noticeable. I would love to get my money back for this but it's probably not even worth it to pay for return shipping and go through the hassle.

          Comments about RESIST Barrier Repair Moisturizer with Retinol - 1.7 oz:

          I've only used this product a few days and I already see results. My skin looks healthier overall, the broken capillaries around my nose are significantly less visible, and a blemish I've had on my cheek for over a year is much more even-toned.

          I did see a bit of irritation, especially on the drier parts of my face after the first day, but I've never used a retinol product before and I have extra sensitive skin. It wasn't itchy or painful, just pinkish and rashy. It's mostly gone away already though.

            I just love this lush feeling moisturizer. It has this luxurious cushiony texture that makes my skin feel moist and oh so pampered without being heavy or greasy. I think I participated in a blind testing of this several years ago prior to launch. It continues to be my favorite moisturizer bar none.

            Outstanding as always. Customer service is top notch.

              I love this product! I stopped using this for about a year and noticed my skin change for the worse. I decided to save some money and go back to a cheaper moisturizer, but man, one night of using this product and I am reminded about why I love it. I have quite rough/thin skin and I always wake up with a smoother complexion! Worth the money!

                Comments about RESIST Barrier Repair Moisturizer with Retinol - 1.7 oz:

                I like this moisturizer very much. It goes on well, and I feel it has made a difference in keeping my fine lines at bay. However, when I first started it using at night I found it dried out my skin if I used it nightly, but I fixed the problem by using it only every other night and that has worked out well. On the nights I don't use this I use a more hydrating moisturizer instead.

                  Comments about RESIST Barrier Repair Moisturizer with Retinol - 1.7 oz:

                  This is one of my desert island products. I have dry/combination skin that is prone to hormonal acne. The retinol seems to help keep the cysts under control, and the moisturizing components balance out my face without feeling heavy or mask-like.

                  The only caveat is the packaging: While in comparison to just about every other brand, you get a good amount of product for a reasonable price, the pump packaging seems to guarantee there is still leftover product that I can't get to when the container is almost empty. I have purchased the PC 4 Men equivalent of this purely for the tube packaging so I can use all of the product I paid for.

                  The formulation is Bomb; I just wish it all came in a tube.

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  I've use PC products for years and have always had wonderful service.
