Additional Information

Why is it different?
RESIST Moisture Renewal Oil Booster is one of the only facial oil blends that’s completely fragrance free; we make it that way because that’s what research shows is best for skin. Each gentle, nourishing plant oil in this innovative formula delivers a complex mix of essential fatty acids and skin-vital antioxidants to alleviate dry skin, calm redness, and create a dewy smooth glow to skin.

What does it do?
The unique complex of nine plant oils works in concert with skin-restoring ingredients to instantly smooth and replenish dry, dehydrated, flaky-looking skin for a renewed vibrancy and youthful glow. Calming, non-fragrant plant oils bathe skin with essential fatty acids and antioxidants that help restore resiliency. The impressively light texture absorbs quickly for all-day comfort and a supremely supple feel. Exceptionally gentle for sensitive skin, even for skin prone to rosacea.

How to use

    Comments about RESIST Moisture Renewal Oil Booster:

    I really like the oil, makes my skin feel very soft and smooth. However, I hate the glass dropper. No matter how careful I try to get it out of the bottle and a few drops onto my hand, it seems to leak excess oil from the outside of the dropper. A small amount of oil is good, an excess just becomes a mess and is wasted - can't put that much on and expect it to be absorbed. Perhaps mine is just a defective dropper, don't know. Would probably buy again if it were in a pump, tube or a dropper that didn't leak all over. As it is, just too messy and wasteful. I would recommend the oil, not the delivery system.

      Comments about RESIST Moisture Renewal Oil Booster:

      I am on low dose Chemo maintenance pills which are making my skin uber dry, crepey, itchy and peeling. My normal Paula's Choice moisturizer helped some after slathering it on. Even tried coconut oil. I asked the company for advice and one item suggested was the Resist Moisture Renewal Oil Boost. I was optimistically hopeful. After using it only two or three times, my skin is not showing peeling anymore, the pain from being so dry has disappeared, and my make up looks so much better. My make up had been looking like heavy pancake because my skin was so dry. It is pricey and I wish it came in a bigger size, but the pain has stopped and it is my new BFF.

        Comments about RESIST Moisture Renewal Oil Booster:

        After hearing how face oils can soften skin without causing breakouts I started to do some research. I stumbled across Paula's Choice products while looking for the most natural products available. This was my first purchase and I started using it mid-December. I followed the suggestion to mix a few drops with my morning moisturizer. For the last few years every winter I would develop a red, dry patch of skin on one of my cheekbones. It was often a little raw feeling as well. This is an an area where I also have a brown spot so I assume it is related to past sun damage as well as dry skin. Using this oil daily, I had no issue with any redness this winter. I was thrilled! An interesting thing happened recently though. I decided that I would stop using the oil for the summer and just save the rest for the winter. After a week or so, I started to break out with a few pimples. I rarely get acne so this was unusual. Thinking that perhaps the moisture balance in my skin changed, I returned to using the oil and the acne cleared! Guess my skin likes it!

        Comments about RESIST Moisture Renewal Oil Booster - 0.67 oz:

        I was anticipating having to wait for a few weeks to see whether or not this would actually work.

        It helped clear up my redness and dry skin within a week. I still get the occasional dry patch, but my foundation is no longer catching large dry patches and the patch is usually gone by the next morning if I give it a little extra attention with exfoliating and a touch of extra oil than I normally use.

        Night: I use 3-5 drops mixed in with my night cream.
        Mornign: 1-3 drops mixed in with day cream

        Amazing facial oil. A bit pricy for the quantity you get, but I love the use of the dropper. And the quality of the little bottle is great.

            Comments about RESIST Moisture Renewal Oil Booster - 0.67 oz:

            I have used this stellar product for years on my face. Then I had an idea for another use. My husband's hearing aids--the plastic domes that fit into the ear canal--made his ear canals dry, flaky and itchy. Drove him crazy. For years, we treated the problem with Locoid but didn't like continually using a corticosteroid. I decided to try using Paula's Moisture Renewal Oil Booster by dipping Q-tips into the bottle. First, I use the oiled Q-tips to throughly clean each ear canal then swab a last dose for moisturizing purposes in the canal and also on the pinna. If the pinna is really dry, I use my fingers to massage the oil in. Voila! No more flaking and itching, and no more use of steroids! We apply it at night when his hearing aids are not in use so the oil works its magic overnight and doesn't get on the domes. Better yet is to use it in the morning on a day that he doesn't use his aids so that nothing is rubbing off onto the pillow case. We aim for weekly application but in winter, more frequent use is needed. Even if I didn't have a minor in Audiology, I'd be well aware of the potential risks of using Q-tips in ears but I am extremely careful. This is a miracle cure for this problem.

            Great solution for my combination skin

            Comments about RESIST Moisture Renewal Oil Booster - 0.67 oz:

            I've always had acne prone skin, on the oily side, but not overly so. This past year or so my skin has been changing - thanks to an array of PC products, acne is no longer a major concern for me (THANK YOU!). However, my nose is still somewhat acne prone, still somewhat oily, but yet, also flaky. This is so hard to work with, because many products that are designed to treat dry, flaky skin are liable to clog my pores. I find the moisture renewal oil booster to be the perfect solution. I add a drop in to my day time serum, and it gives me that extra bit of moisture that I now apparently need, without breaking me out. I also find that a lot of make-up, when applied to my nose, looks really flaky and awful, even if my skin looked fine before it went on. Sometimes I add a tiny drop of this oil into my concealer before using it to cover redness on my nose. This seems to work well. I'm still currently using a trial size free gift (this stuff lasts a long time), but when it runs out, I think I will repurchase. If you feel like your skin needs extra moisture, but you are scared of heavy moisturizers, try this product out.

            Service and delivery comments:

            Delivery to Canada in a reasonable time frame. PC products are always packaged nicely, and never damaged upon arrival.

              I lost count as to how many bottles of this oil I have gone through because I love it so much. I have rosacea so finding anything that agrees with my skin is a nightmare. This helps calm my skin and keep it moist. I use this oil even on my hair and cuticles . I get so many compliments on my skin now. I only wish this came in a bigger size since I use so much. I hope this product is never discontinued as us rosacea sufferers have such challenges finding great products.

              I love using this in my morning and night time regime. I also love using this alone, especially if I wash my face in the middle of the day before a workout and do not want to do my full regimen. I am very skincare conscious and have tried so many different facial oils and this one has made the biggest difference!!!I received this as a gift with a promo code and the small bottle went a very long way!! I had to purchase the full size because I fell in love with the product so much! I highly recommend for those of you in the midwest enduring harsh cold winters and strong wind!

                I have extremely sensitive skin and dry skin, all the products I have tried (la mer, clinique, shiseido, to name a few) give me rashes or breakouts, especially when it comes to moisturizers. I got this as a sample when I placed an order for the acne line. I took a chance using this because it seemed oily, but I thought, all the Paula's products I tried have worked miracles on my skin, and I was not disappointed. Immediately I felt it penetrate and soothe my dry skin. I waited a few days for that oh so dreaded breakout, and nothing! After no break outs, I have religiously used this product, it has kept my skin without dryness! I love it, and recommend it.
