About Me Minimalist
Comments about RESIST Hydrating Cleanser - 6.4 oz:
I have combination skin, and always thought that Resist Perfectly Balanced cleanser was more suitable for me. I randomly decided to try this product one day, and the difference in result on my skin was amazing. My skin looks brighter, softer, and the pores on my cheeks (the dry part of my skin) actually became a lot smaller! I'm very surprised.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Have used for years
from Seattle, WA
I have been using this for years. Occasionally try something else, but always come back to it. Gentle, non drying with thorough cleaning. Great for my combination skin that is getting dryer as I get older!

About Me Budget Buyer
I love this cleanser. It removes ALL my makeup the first time using it. I've never experienced that with a cleanser before. I use the toner afterward and my cotton ball is always clean clean clean. Other cleansers don't take care of business, dry out your skin, or leave a nasty residue behind. Not this. Best cleanser ever.

I'm on my second bottle of this product. I really love the creaminess of this cleanser and how my skin feel when I'm using it and after I've used it. I don't think it removes make-up that well but I typically don't wear a ton of make-up anyway so if you do wear a lot I wouldn't say this is your one stop remover/cleanser. I also love that the pump locks for when you are traveling!! So wonderful. I'll definitely keep buying this.

LOVE This Cleanser!!!
By Elinor in Oakville

About Me Brand Buyer
I love this cleanser - it's one of the few I've tried that doesn't irritate my skin and/or make me break out in pimples or hives. I have VERY sensitive skin, I'm over 50, and I also have mild rosacea. This cleanser does take off make-up for me, but I guess it depends on what kind of make-up you're using (i.e. waterproof). Waterproof make-up is always harder to get off.

Great for rosacea skin
from New York, NY
I have mild rosacea and the most frustrating part about it is that it has changed my skin texture, so that I always feel like there's a dry layer of skin cells on my face. I like the clean feel that facial scrubs give me, but they certainly aren't great for the rosacea. This cleanser is gentle, but still makes my skin feel both clean and soft- more like what it was before the rosacea kicked in.I agree it's not ideal for makeup removal, but as I don't often wear makeup I just use a makeup remover first on those days. For those who regularly wear makeup and want a quick bedtime routine, maybe another cleanser would be a better option, but this really tames the scaly feel I often have on my face, so I'm very satisfied with it.

Skin doesn't feel stripped after use!
I use this cleanser twice a day, once in the morning after I workout and again at night before I go to bed. I've used many different (drugstore) cleansers in my lifetime, and even the ones with four stars on Beautypedia that are made for dry skin have always left me with tight-feeling, irritated skin. My skin is really sensitive, so even the most gentle cleansers will leave me with red patches on my face. It is a little pricey, but this cleanser is very large in size! My skin does not feel stripped of anything after I use this cleanser, which is probably the biggest surprise for me. I don't wear any makeup on my skin, and I always remove my eye makeup seperately, so I can't testify to how well this works at removing makeup.

A big fault of this is that it doesn't remove make up and you will need to use two pumps to really get things off. I use a wash cloth on top of this cleanser and taking up make up especially waterproof mascara/eyeliner is hard. For everything else it's ok, you can use another product that's cheaper and more substantive. I've stopped using it - I also don't know if it really does make the other retinol products work better. Will not purchase in the future.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Love the pump on this cleansing product.
from Independence, Ky.
Love the pump on this cleanser. I think there should be pumps on all the cleansers. Maybe have refill bottles in larger sizes to refill the smaller bottle with the pump.

My Top Favorite!
By Scott in Central Ohio
from Worthington (just north of Columbus)
This was the first cleanser I tried from PC, and it remains my favorite. It's effective for both morning 'basic start' cleaning and as the end-of-day deep cleanser (if there is such a thing). I'm a guy, and I don't usually wear makeup, but I have a number of friends who do, including two who perform on stage and use the heavy duty stage makeup, and all love this for its gentleness as well as effectiveness. As an FYI, lather has nothing to do with cleansing ability; it's a cosmetic additive that soap manufacturers added decades ago, when advertisers convinced folk that suds did the cleaning. Hopefully PC with address this issue in the future. Anyway, this cleans, is a creamy set up for shaving, and rinses easily. I've tried all of Paula's cleansers and find they are all terrific. None has stripped my combo skin, nor left residue or caused a reaction. However, as I don't have a preference for gel vs cream vs whatever, this is my number one favorite. Women AND men can't go wrong with this.
