    I searcedh the site for a product for "peptides" and this product came up. And I thought I would try this for my hands at night before bed. Now I won't even go to bed with out using this as a night time hand cream!!! I have tried many other "Hand Creams" but, wanted something that has an anti-aging benefit for my hands :)))

    Comments about RESIST Intensive Repair Cream:

    I have had great results with all of Paula's Choice products. However, after using this product for less than a week, I suffered a terrible break out. I never break out, and this is the only thing that was changed in my skincare routine. I guess this one isn't for me. Hopefully my skin will return to normal before the 4th!

    Drying for sensitive/dry skin

      Best Uses

        Comments about RESIST Intensive Repair Cream:

        I have very dry/sensitive skin and unfortunately this seemed to dry my skin out further! I would put it on and it felt nice at first but over 2 weeks of usage I started developing dry patches of skin on my face. I think this product was a little too irritating for my already sensitive skin.

          Comments about RESIST Intensive Repair Cream - 1.7 oz:

          I love this product in winter time when my skin is on the drier side! It's an extremely moisturizing product. I hesitate to call it heavy, because it does penetrate into your skin fully after a good hour, and it's meant to be very moisturizing. This won't work for someone with oiliness. Luckily, I'm pretty sure it says it's intended for dry skin. After I use this at night I wake up with plumply hydrated and smoothed skin texture. The retinol does make a noticeable difference in your skin texture when using this.

            After about 4 months of using this moisturizer, I can really see a noticeable reduction in fine lines and wrinkles. I am quite surprised with how supple and smooth my skin is - this retinol product has totally exceeded my expectations. Thanks Paula's Choice!

              Comments about RESIST Intensive Repair Cream - 1.7 oz:

              After 60+ years of cystic acne, and every treatment possible except for Accutane, I finally have clear combination skin! It took me decades to realize that "effective barrier function" was critical and that continually drying my skin to eliminate the oil was counter productive. I've used 1/2 pump of this product along with a full pump of PC's Clinical 1% Retinol both morning and night throughout the winter and my skin looks great.

              Service and delivery comments:

              Delivery was prompt and packaged well, as always.

                  Comments about RESIST Intensive Repair Cream - 1.7 oz:

                  When I first bought this product, after a couple uses I had a really bad reaction to this. My skin is sensitive and eczema prone, so applying it everyday right away didn't work for me. After getting my skin back in control, I've begun to use this again, but have been slowly working it into my routine (I've started using it only a few times a week). It's been great so far and I definitely have noticed an improvement in my fine lines around my eyes and the skin tone on my forehead (the two places I put it). I'm really glad that it's working for me now, as I was really excited to try a retinol product. It's nice and rich so my eyelids don't feel dry in the morning. Integrating it slowly has been super successful for me.

                    Comments about RESIST Intensive Repair Cream - 1.7 oz:

                    So glad I tried this - Since I have hit my "wonderful" 40's, I am always searching for moisturizers that bring back the glow, hydration and volume that my skin used to have. So many moisturizers over-promise and under-deliver...I really feel like this one truly works. I used it after a night "out-on-the-town" meaning lots of fun but too many indulgences (sugary desserts including wine which is a known dehydrator). I woke up with skin that looked plumped and hydrated...seriously?? I was amazed...any moisturizer that can do that is a total winner. The more I use PC, the more I love it...awesome!!
