Too rich for me; perfect for my sister!

Pros

  • Moisturizes
  • Soothes Skin
  • Very emollient

Cons

  • Too rich for my normal-to-dry skin.

Best Uses

  • Daily Use
  • Fine Lines/Wrinkles
  • Sensitive Skin
  • Very Dry Skin

Comments about RESIST Intensive Repair Cream:

I thought I would try this as an alternative to the Resist Barrier Repair Moisturizer which I have used happily at night since it first came out. Messing with a good thing: bad idea! For me, this turned out to be much too emollient, and I had breakouts on my chin for the first time in many years. I passed it on to my sister, whose skin is very dry, and it was perfect for her. I am back to my earlier routine, and my skin is back to normal. By the way, I have been using Paula's products since she began her line. Before that, I bought all her books and followed her advice faithfully. I will be 74 this month, but people normally guess my age at anywhere between late 40s to mid 50s. Thanks, Paula!

    Comments about RESIST Intensive Repair Cream:

    This is a luscious nighttime moisturizer. It feels divine on my skin, and even though it contains Retinol, it still feels very gentle. I use it on my eye area with no irritation. I exclusively use Paula's Choice for my entire skincare routine, and I love the results. I've attached a no-makeup selfie (with no filter, etc.). I'm 42 and people don't believe me. They think I'm in my 30s. Paula's Choice really works, ya'll! :)

    Great formula, but tendency to separate

        Comments about RESIST Intensive Repair Cream:

        I'm on my third or fourth bottle now, depending on whether I count the one I returned. These ingredients are solid and hard to beat for this price--or any price actually. This works well in the cold midwestern winter. just a little goes a long way but when the whether is extra dry just use a little more. However, the last 2 bottles I used (including the one I had to return) had some separation issues: when I used the top layer especially, i would pump out a runny liquid before getting to the cream. This could have been because of the drastic heat changes in my room due to the change in seasons, so this is something to take note of.

              I LOVE this and my reluctant fiancé does too. If you read the list of ingredients and look up the benefits you will be blown away by the benefit you're getting for the price. There are many of us who love Paula but cannot always afford all the highest end items so I greatly appreciate her providing a fabulous item at A price most people can affors PLEASE keep this fabulous starter gem and as my budget has increased I have both purchased and asked for the pricier items for gifts. My collection now includes about 15 plus items! thank you for giving this 38-year-old's skin that still gets her carded thanks to PC and sunscreeec since 16-d when I am complimented on my skin I write your site down!

                Amazing results with this product! I use this product along with the Resist Cleanser and Daily Soothing Treatment, and my skin has never looked or felt so great! I am 61 years young, and my skin hardly has wrinkles (other than smile lines!), but my skin was uneven and a bit blotchy looking. I am using much less makeup, am not self-conscious about my skin, and I will absolutely continue to use this moisturizer in conjunction with the other products. Also, the moisturizer is not greasy and it does not sit on top of your skin. It moisturizes and feels great. You can also use this around your eyes, and it works wonders for dry skin around the eyes! I won't go without this one!

                  I use it every single night. I was looking for a moisturizer i could use during the night, and I needed one that would be heavy so that my face would me well moisturized throughout the entire night and this does that job perfectly. I apply one pump of it on my face and stays pretty heavy. Great, I love it.

                    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!

                        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.
