About Me Beauty Conscious, Skin Care Professional
Comments about RESIST Anti-Aging Clear Skin Hydrator - 1.7 oz:
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.
Service and delivery comments:
I wish Canadian delivery was quicker. Sometimes it takes two weeks!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Product is great, packaging is not so much
from Claremont, CA
About Me Beauty Conscious
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.

Awesome Moisturizer, Horrible Packaging
from Apex, NC
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!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Smooth and effective, not greasy
from New Orleans, LA
About Me Minimalist
I use this moisturizer every night and my skin has been noticeably smoother and healthier. It is not heavy or greasy yet feels like it fully and deeply hydrates my skin. It takes care of the flaky spots I sometimes have without feeling like it clogs my pores.

Love the product; Hate the broken packaging
from Charleston, SC
I love this moisturizer like no other. I've tried most of the PC moisturizers but this is the only one that I can wear at night in without waking up greasy. It makes my combination/oily skin feel amazing.The only issue is the packaging. This is my third or fourth bottle and the tube that connects to the pump has broken every single time. The last two came without the tubes attached. I had been using the one from my original bottle but that one broke today. I now have to scoop the product out, exposing it to air everytime I use it.I must be unlucky because it looks like this is only happening to me. This is in desperate need of repackaging. I'm going to put it in a silicone squeeze tube because I love it that much but I hope they eventually repackage for the sake of my sanity.

My worst Paula purchase ever
from Rossville, Georgia
I needed a night moisturizer for my dry areas. Used this and immediately began breaking out in those areas. Possibly reacted with my prescription retin-a, I don't know. What a waste of money.

I really enjoy this product as a moisturizer for my combination skin that does not break me out. However, as with several PC products the packaging is unnecessarily chunky and it is impossible to discern when the product will run out. This is a hassle considering I have to order it online and wait at least 5 days for a new moisturizer to arrive. I would much prefer a squeeze tube or simpler pump.

Best hydrator ever
from N. C., USA
About Me Beauty Conscious, Can't Spend Much Time, Like Effective Routine, Minimalist
I love this product, and use it in combination with Paula's SPF 30 daily Wrinkle Defense, it has a lot of nice color, and I am done. I also use a serum either once/day and want to now add one w/ Retinol, as I had feared it would dry my skin and have learned it's not true!A little goes a long way with this product, especially if you combine it with the SPF 30 w/ color one, they say tinted but I use it as completed look! I am loving aging with good, natural products not tested on animals....it also is genetic and I stick closely as possible to my yoga and vegetarian diet, drinking a lot of water, no milk unless it's coconut or almond.`Honestly I am told daily that I do not appear to be even 50! As a younger woman it seemed normal, but now that I am in my 60's it is vital to maintain my skin's health, in particular years sailing and living near the beach in my 30's-40's resulted in skin cancer, tiny spots I caught early, and is now-clear for ten past years! SPF , like Paula's helps so much it is also easy to blend and apply for smooth looking skin. Thanks to this company! Also, it's not hurting to stay indoors til afternoon, seek out shade, late afternoon beach and sailing.

Too rich for a normal to oily skin
from San Jose, CA
I ordered this resist Normal to oily skin hydrator and I thought it is for the combination skin type. However, after using for a few days every night, I began to have breakout and my skin feels more oily and unbalanced. The resist anti-aging moisturizer feels richer and it doesn't feel suitable for combination skin type at all.While they offer exchanges/returns, you've to prepay your own shipping labels. It is not too worth it to try out and return as there will be definitely costs involved.

Balls up on me
I love all other pc products that I have tried. This one feels nice going on and has a list of good ingredients but, it doesn't mix well for me with any of the boosters I use with it. I have tried letting it sit on its own to absorb and it still pills and balls when I add anything else. Love the resist barrier repair and the skin balancing gel. I was just hoping to be able to buy a kit with products from one line or the other. For now I will just mix and match like before. Love what Paula's choice has done for my skin. Just have to pass on this one.
