About Me Beauty Conscious, Minimalist
Comments about RESIST Anti-Aging Clear Skin Hydrator - 1.7 oz:
I can't say enough about this product.Me: combo skin that rarely needs extra moisture unless I travel to a dry climate. Use: First I used this only at night. Recently I have been putting it on both before bed and before my sunscreen in the morning.Result: Skin looks more even, red marks have faded, pores have shrunk, and the annoying white bumps on my outer cheeks are shrinking (I thought nothing would make them go away).PS If you are looking for a simple and somewhat heavy moisturizer for your face, this is not it. It really is for combo skin and normal skin may find it drying.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Works well and feels nice
from Sarasota, FL
About Me Minimalist
This is a lightweight gentle moisturizer that absorbs well and leaves my skin feeling smooth and not greasy (a huge plus for those of us with oily skin.) In conjunction with the other PC products I use, I have seen a definite improvement in red spots/scars and uneven skin tone. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because when I most need a moisturizer - when my skin is irritated and flaky - it doesn't moisturize enough to calm flakes and actually burns a bit upon application. Some of this is probably my misunderstanding of what product to use when, but as someone with oily skin, I don't usually want something "moisturizing" because I've got plenty of natural moisture going on. When I want a moisturizer is when I have skin that is overly dry and irritated. This works great when my oily skin is in it's normal condition, so it works great when I don't want much "moisture" but isn't great to actually calm dehydrated skin or smooth out flakes.
Very nice, but not enough for drier areas of combo skin
from Los Angles, CA
I have oily / normal combination skin that can be a bit extreme, ie, very oily in the oily areas and tending to dry in the normal areas. I tried Resist Anti-Aging Clear Skin Hydrator from several samples in an attempt to find a good product for my skin's challenging needs.The product is a light tan color, and is a lightweight cream texture. Its natural scent is pleasant--reminds me of uncooked oatmeal. The product applies very smoothly, absorbs quickly, and leaves a slightly sticky, dewy finish. When I apply it at night, my skin feels hydrated and nourished initially. The next morning, my T-zone, which would normally get super oily with regular moisturizers, is very well behaved with minimal oil. However, my cheeks feel dry and tight. I can't apply this product around my eyes because it stings the delicate skin in that area. However, it is very soothing to the rest of my face, and is great for applying after aggressive treatments like Retin-A.On the whole, I would say I'm on the fence about Resist Anti-Aging Clear Skin Hydrator. It is definitely worth sampling, especially if your skin tends to the oilier side. Or, it can be used only in oily areas to provide anti-aging properties without creating an oil slick. That in itself is a feat for us oily-skinned people!

Dried out my whole skin
from Tel Aviv
Although being a fan of PC, this product absolutely dried out my skin, leaving it red, wrinkled, dried out and almost burned. When putting this as an evening moisterizer it hurts a bit on my skin. I'm very unhappy with this product since i feel it did much more damage than good, especially under my eyes which is the most sensitive area...
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

About Me Beauty Conscious
I was surprised that in the morning my skin didn't look shiny as it always does. It felt hydrated and rested but not shiny. It was my first experience waking up with skin like that after applying moisturizer the night before... and i like it a lot. I will definitely continue using this moisturizer.

Not what I was hoping for
from San Diego, CA
I currently use paulas choice oil reducing cleanser for combination skin and absolutely love it. The only thing missing from my regimen was a daily moisturizer. This seemed like a good option because I wanted to stick to the "normal, oily, and combo" skin formulas and I also really liked that it said it would help reduce red marks. I wanted to love this product but my red marks are still very present and my skin does not feel hydrated. Maybe it's just my skin but this moisturizer was too light.
My favourite Paula product
from London, ON
Hands down my favourite Paula product. I hate putting moisturizer on my face - I've had problem skin since I was 12 years old and moisturizer always felt heavy and uncomfortable on my oily/combination, cystic-acne prone skin. It's taken a long time for me to accept that my face NEEDS moisturizer, and this is the first and only product that has felt like silk going on. It's so lightweight and absorbs super quickly. As others have commented: please, never change this formulation!
Great moisturizer for combination skin prone to breakouts.

About Me Beauty Conscious, Pcfan
Love PC, total die-hard fan. This is not working for me, though. My skin feels very dry after I use it. I can see why some people's skin gets an almost sun-burned reaction from it. I've had some dryness around my eyes this winter, but other moisturizers are too emollient for that area. I just needed a basic moisturizer to use in addition to my serum. Thought this would be great but, oh my god, my poor under-eyes!!! It weirdly made them SO dry. Never had that experience with a moisturizer. Super bummed. I suggest getting a sample of this before ordering the full-size. You can pretty much tell after one application if it's going to work for you or not.

Fantastic! I am spoiled!
from Colorado Springs, Colorado
I confess, I was using cheap off-brand fragrance free lotion on my face this summer for the occasional dry areas, after my BHA gel. But my skin wasn't ever that happy or moisturized--I had redness, some bumps, and itchiness on my cheeks. I saw a sale and bought this lotion, and it is AMAZING! It goes on super light and absorbs very quickly. My skin feels silky smooth, perfectly hydrated, and the redness and irritation are gone. Even the redness in the creases of my nose is very reduced. My t-zone is normally a little oily, but this lotion seems like the perfect balance for my skin. It hasn't been a very long time yet, but I think even my wrinkles are just a little reduced. I'm afraid Paula's Choice has spoiled me...how can I ever use anything else now?
