    • It's the best moisturizer I've ever tried for oily/combination skin--really moisturizes and heals, without any oiliness.

    Hydrates with no oily feel!
    • I'n in my forty's and have oily skin. I look for a moisturizer that adds the moisture without adding oils, so my face doesn't break out and keeps looking healthy. This skin hydrator does the tick! It's texture is like a light cream, but feels like water when applied to the face. It is absorbed quickly without leaving my skin feeling oily.

    Heals problem areas
    • I used this on a few spots where I had picked at pimples and it was a yucky mess. Those spots healed way quicker than they have in the past. Sorry to get graphic, but that's the truth. This moisturizer feels hydrating and - antiseptic- to me. I will continue to use this. It makes my skin feel clean and dry for overnight.

    Clogs my pores
    • I've used this at night and woke up to clogged pores and whiteheads in the morning. I really liked how it felt on my skin, but that's just it. I'm one of those people who break out from fatty alcohols and this product is not shy of using a lot of it. Maybe if it'd contain less thickeners, emollients, and occlusive ingredients then I would be able to use it. Sadly, my oily acne-prone skin did not like this and I will not repurchase.

    Too Greasy, disappointed
    • Expect it will be lightweight as it indicate for oily/combination skin, but too heavy/greasy for me. I used to order Resist Barrier Repair Moisturizer. Since now this one is for dry skin, so I order differently this time. But just not up to expectation.

    Balls up
    • I found this moisturizer to not be very well hydrating for my combination skin. Also, it balled up, requiring me to wipe my face all over to get the balls off before applying sunscreen.

    Extra dryness
    • I have oily t-zone only during the summer months. This made my skin extra dry in the dry areas of my combination skin it was fine the oily areas of my face (T zone) but in my cheek and chin zone it made it dry. I was sad because i thought this was going to work for me.

    Good product, terrible package
    • I really like this moisturizer - it goes on smooth and not-greasily for my sensitive and combination skin. The container is way over designed - impractical for travel as it is heavy and bulky for the small amount of lotion inside. Recently the pump function my bottle completely broke and when I tried to open it up to get the remaining lotion out manually, it was impossible! The narrow neck and the pump mechanism blocks access. From Canada, returning is a hassle so I won't be buying this anymore

    Wow! This product did so much for me!
    • I use this product at night in conjunction with the 1% Retinol and 1x a week the 4% foaming BHA. This feels so nice around my eyes and works so well on top of either product. The next morning my skin looks more plump and less crepey and it was noticeably brighter. Before using this product I had been using the PC skin balancing moisture gel. I still like this product but the effects of the anti-aging skin hydrator really impressed me. It made a big impact on the skin around my eyes.

    Wonderful product, but I needed a smidge more moisture!
    • I have slightly oily skin with dry patches and this did a wonderful job of softening my crow's feet and didn't break me out. I needed a little more moisture for the winter and handed this off to a friend with very oily skin who loved it! For me, the Skin Balancing Invisible Finish Moisture Gel wound up being a perfect fit, so if you need a little more hydration, give that a try!

    • I've been using this moisterizer at night for the past two weeks and I love what it has done for my skin. I used to have very large pores and it has diminished them a lot. I will never stop purchasing this product.

    might work better in summer
    • I have only tried this product in the winter time. I have combo/acne prone skin, so I thought it would be a good fit for me, but it wasn't quite mositurizing enough and I also had the problem of it not sinking into my skin--it would bead up if I touched it after it dried. Therefore, I could not wear it under makeup which was a bummer. I ended up loving the Hydralight Moisturizing Lotion though! I do like how this one has ingrediants that battle acne causing bacteria though.

    Amazing!
    • This is by far THE BEST moisturizer I have ever used. I like to use it before I go to bed and will also use it during the day on spots on my face that I know can get dry. The first time I used it I immediately noticed how soft to the touch my skin was. Best of all, I no longer wake up with oily skin... my skin is still just as smooth in the morning. This is my holy grail moisturizer!!

    Gel Beads Off, Sits on Top of Skin
    • When I read the description of it, it sounded like the holy grail. It seems to be designed to do exactly what I need: moisturize mature acne-prone skin without causing problems, and even help with discolorations. But it doesn't work for me for two reasons: 1/ it seems to sit on top of my skin and beads or rolls off if I touch my cheek, 2/ it doesn't hydrate enough (probably because it doesn't sink in). I'm going back to my own HG, the Hydralight Moisturizer.

    Hello, and thank you for the question! Decyl glucoside is a surfactant, meaning it acts as a cleanser by emulsifying oils - so it is both a cleansing agent and an emulsifier. :)

    Tighten pores but too dry
    • I have been using this product for 3 weeks and I notice that my pores have been reduced visibly, but it is too drying for my skin. When I laugh my skin feels tight and my skin have fine lines like crumpled paper now. I am thinking of combining this hydrator with another moisturiser but am not sure how I should combine them. Should I use this for night or day only and use the other moisturiser alternately with this one? Or should I use this hydrator for one week then alternate with the other?

    Misnomer
    • Call me a snark, but I believe Paula's Choice is running out of synonyms for "moisturizer". Perhaps that's why this is labeled as a hydrator; however, people with sporadic skin prone to bouts of dryness will find this won't be hydrating enough. Be that as it may, this has the perfect texture for breakout-prone, oily skin. It also has ingredients that fade inflammation from acne and even kill acne-causing bacteria (I've only seen something like that in benzoyl peroxide creams!)

    Love This Stuff!
    • I have sensitive, acne-prone, combination skin and this is the perfect night time moisturizer for me. I have issues with really dry areas (especially in the winter) and this moisturizer eliminates those dry patches leaving my skin soft in those areas and yet doesn't leave me with the slick feeling in the oily areas. I also have never broken out with this product! I use two pumps every night after the ultra-light antioxidant serum and my skin looks amazing in the morning.

    • I love this stuff. It feels like I'm wrapping my skin in bubblewrap bc of how soft & silky it feels. I use it around my eyes too & have no irritation. I'm not sure that it's actually doing anything to prevent acne or fade my scares but it does make my skin feel nice. I'll re-buy.

    WANTED TO LOVE THIS, BUT...
    • I have been using PC products for years, and have loved most of the products I've tried. When I was halfway into the bottle, I developed a sensitivity to it - my eyes burned and itched, and the rest of my face and neck itched, getting worse the longer I had it on. I called customer support, and I will be returning the product, so that is no problem. I have learned though, that more anti-aging ingredients do not work for everyone. I guess it's back to the Skin Balancing Moisture Gel for me!

    Great for combination skin
    • Started using Paula's products in September. My skin is brighter & more even, dark spots have faded, less wrinkles, & her products work well with my cystic acne. This hydrator works well for me. It doesn't make my skin feel oily, even with my combination skin. My wrinkles are less noticeable & it doesn't cause breakouts. I do find that I need to use a heavier serum around my eyes - Resist Intensive Wrinkle-Repair Retinol Serum works great.

    This is wonderful!
    • I have used the Skin Balancing system and have been happy. I've been slowly working in the Resist line as I'm now 46. I found this product to be too harsh for around my eyes, no problem, I have other moisturizers for that. Once I started using it everywhere else, I grew to like it. Never makes my face feel greasy or oily. The other day, I looked in the mirror and thought I had makeup on when I didn't! I still break-out every month, but otherwise, my skin looks fabulous because of this!

Detailed instructions on how/when to apply your Paula's Choice products can be found in our How to Put Together Your Own Skincare Routine article.

How is the Resist Anti-Aging Clear Skin Hydrator different from the other Paula's Choice facial moisturizers?

Resist Clear Skin Hydrator is a state-of-the-art formula specifically designed to address the advanced needs of those concerned with the frustrating combination of wrinkles and breakouts.

Resist Clear Skin  Hydrator contains a special complex of ingredients that works to repair signs of aging as it helps keep skin clear and encourage healing of discolorations (red marks) from breakouts. And because it's a moisturizer, it also provides hydration for smoother, softer, younger-looking skin.

Despite the advanced nature of this formula, it bears the formulary hallmarks of every Paula's Choice facial moisturizer. All of them are designed to supply skin with what it needs to look and feel its best.

How come Resist Anti-Aging Clear Skin Hydrator doesn't contain retinol?

Although retinol is an anti-aging superstar ingredient, it's important to keep in mind that it is not the only superstar to consider. Paula and her team developed this unique formula around the benefits of niacinamide with stabilized vitamin C and a specialized skin-clearing complex. Between these and other key ingredients such as antioxidants, skin that's showing signs of aging yet still breaking out is able to repair itself and help reduce signs of past breakouts. If you wish to add a product with retinol to your anti-aging routine, consider one of our serums (note that the Resist Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum does not contain retinol).

Do I still need to use my anti-acne products with this moisturizer?

Yes. Although we'd love it if this weren't true, the fact is that it requires more than one product to keep acne in check. Essential are a gentle, water-soluble cleanser, a beta hydroxy acid (BHA) exfoliant that contains salicylic acid, and a topical disinfectant medicated with benzoyl peroxide. Using these types of products along with Resist Clear Skin Hydrator ensures you're combining the right ingredients to manage breakouts while also helping your skin look and act younger.

I keep depressing the pump, but no product is coming out.

This product is packaged in an airless pump dispenser which utilizes a vacuum system to dispense and keep the contents fresh. Airless packaging helps to keep air and contaminants out of the product, which enhances the formula's stability and effectiveness.

When using your product for the first time, you may need to “prime” the dispenser. To prime, simply pump the dispenser slowly about 10-15 times. If the dispenser stops working at any time, simply repeat the "priming" step. Do not attempt to dismantle the package.
