    can't use due to smell
    • I really wanted to love this moisturizer for all the great things I read about it, but it totally smells! I went through all the reviews and am wondering if I'm the only one who notices, but the samples I purchased smell like bread yeast or something similar that I can't figure out?! I was hoping it would go away but it didn't, so I ended up rewashing my face and using another lotion. Was super bummed, but glad I only bought a couple samples so am not out much money.

    Love It!
    • This is my holy grail moisturizer. It doesn't clog my pores and doesn't leave a greasy feeling. Just moisturized and soft. Perfect! I'm 45 and have had acne and cystic acne since I hit puberty. Since using PC products my face is clear. FINALLY!

    Superb Night Time Moisturizer with repair benefits!
    • The Anti-Aging Clear Skin hydrator is a superb choice of PM moisturizer for those concerned with wrinkles/multiple signs of aging & breakouts. Oily skin types will appreciate the silky gel-cream texture, similar to Lauder's Advanced Night Repair eye gel, yet Paula's is more lightweight and settles onto the skin beautifully. It seemed to diminish some redness on the skin, calm irritation, hydrate and soothe. All while maintaining a beautiful formula suited for those with breakout prone skin.

    Caused some skin sensitivity!
    • After sitting on my shelf for a few months until I finished my non-PC moisturiser, I finally got started with this product. I initially loved it - it gave me all the moisture I needed that the previous one wasn't providing, and felt good on my skin. But after a few weeks I've noticed the return of milia and some red bumps that are warm to the touch. Reading the reviews I can see I'm not the only one with this sensitivity! My moisturiser hunt begins again! :(

    Great product, but the pump ....
    • I believe this is an excellent product. It substantially reduces my facial redness like no other product I've used does. This is an item I stock up on when on sale, so I may use it 6-9 months after purchase. The pump stopped working on my last bottle, however more that half of the product remained in the bottle. Customer Service recommended some upside down thumping and pumping, but it still does not work. Postal costs in Canada make returns impractical. 4 weeks later, I'm still scooping!

    Great primer!
    • My skin is too dry to use this as a stand-alone moisturizer, but it works GREAT as a primer! Leaves a smooth, matte, satiny finish that doesn't pill. The best part is its skill-set - not many products that target red marks & bacteria without also irritating or drying the skin! Also, as a nurse, I like that this uses lactoperoxidase rather than an antibacterial agent like triclosan (most common in antibac soaps and toothpaste), which is contributing to the problem of antibacterial resistance.

    Can't go to bed without applying
    • I have been using PC products for years. This by far is one I cannot do without. Even if I am tired and skip applying my toner and exfoliant, only applying this moisturizer after cleansing, my skin is rejuvenated over night. Love this moisturizer!

    First PC Disappointment ...
    • I have been using this since I bought it a month and a half ago, plenty of time for my skin to get acclimated. It didn't. It has broken out my oily/sensitive skin. I also used it in tandem w/the Resist Super-Light Daily Wrinkle Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 30. It did not fade any acne or brown marks either. The tint on the Daily Wrinkle Defense was too sheer and did not reduce redness. Sadly, disappointed...

    Balanced my skin and faded ance scars
    • Definitely a great addition to my skincare routine. I first received a sample then fell in love. Just the three sample sizes I received faded some red/dark acne scars completely (aided by PC's vitamin C serum, the serum faded them slightly but entirely and quickly when i added this to my routine). Thank you so much for your products and having amazing customer service as well!

    favorite moisturizer!
    • I received a trial size of this and instantly fell in love. It has a lovely gel-cream texture and provides the perfect amount of moisture for my oily-combination skin. It leaves my skin feeling hydrated, it doesn't break my skin out, and it doesn't leave a super shiny finish either. On a side note, this product does not have a matte finish nor will it prevent oily skin from looking shiny. I don't have a problem with this because I use an oil-control primer and matte base products anyway.

    Makes my daughter's nose red and peeling
    • I bought this product for my daughter, but it makes her nose area very red and makes the skin peel. She doesn't use any other products except washes with the Clear cleanser, puts this on, then puts on a sunscreen that is only a zinc/titanium dioxide formula. So, while it is probably a good product, it was sensitizing for her skin.

    Disappointed
    • I had really high expectations for this product after reading all the reviews and sadly, I did not have a good experience. I have combination skin so my skin usually feels a little dry after cleansing. I purchased this product to use as a night time moisturizer along with the Clear products. Unfortunately, this product neither hydrates my skin nor fades the dark marks. In fact, it makes my dark marks look worse. I really wish it lived up to its claims. I have no choice but to stop using it.

    Air pump not working
    • I guess the hydrator works ok for me but the air pump of the bottle does not work :( I have seen this problem over and over again in other reviews, why isn't there a quality control to check these? I really don't know how to open and scoop the product without ruining the active ingredients :(

    Hello! Sadly, pumps tend to have a higher failure rate so despite our best efforts, some of them will end up having issues. This is true across the cosmetics industry but the good news is that the majority of pump packaging works flawlessly and we'll happily exchange this product for you, as it's possible you may have one of the older bottles before we switched to what we feel is a more reliable pump dispenser.

    A Miracle for my face!
    • Acne prone skin has never afforded me the luxury of moisturizing. Everything, literally everything, makes my face break out - except for this! The Resist Anti-Aging Clear Skin Hydrator is absolutely amazing. I'm in my 40's so now also concerned about wrinkles, etc. Fortunately I'm not compromising a thing! My skin stays clear, now it's moisturized and feels wonderful, and an added bonus that I noticed the skin on my neck and under my chin is much, much firmer. Very happy! :)

    Not for me
    • I am giving this two starts because it didn't work for me, but I'm sure it's great for others. Two main issues: smells (I could smell it an hour after application) and didn't give enough moisture. I have sensitive, eczema-prone skin but it's combo in the summer. So I am having more breakouts and wanted to treat that, help control T-zone oil, but also get enough moisture. This wasn't it, but I am sure there's something else here that will work b/c I love Paula's Choice products overall!

    A winner
    • I have sensitive, combination, oily T-zone, aging skin. I use this at night over Earth-sourced toner on face, under eyes, neck, shoulders, and chest. I do not use a BHA every night, just two or three nights weekly. This moisturizer makes my skin its most beautiful. It calms any irritation, restoring my natural, fair color, gives a lovely finish, and replenishes with antioxidants. It has never irritated my eyes. Thank you, Paula. Bravo!

    • Amazing moisturizer. I use this formula at night and Skin Balancing Invisible Finish Moisture Gel during the day. I had some persistent fine lines around my eyes that even the most expensive eye cream couldn't seem to help. I was hesitant to try another rich cream, as this had only given me milia (little white bumps) around my eyes. After a few weeks of concentrated use around my eyes my fine lines are almost invisible. Now it's winter, I will be switching to Moisture Boost for more hydration.

    Wanted to love this
    • I wanted to love this. Anti aging & blemish care in a moisturizer! The feel of it (but also or all Paulas Choice moisturizers) is super velvety and smooth, however I got small bumps of irritation from something in the formula. It wasn't too emollient, but too much for my sensitive skin. I switched to the Hydralight moisturizer and love it.

    Not a very good option for combination skin
    • 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.

    Great product
    • I love Paula's choice products because they are NOT TESTED ON ANIMALS and I always look for companies that supports this cause. In addiction to that, the products are great and this Resist Moisturizer is very light for oily and acne-prone skin. I use it after washing my face at night and before I apply the Retinol. I totally recommend this product!

    Absorbs quickly, love for use during the day prior to sunscreen
    • This is a great moisturizer, I love the gel/cream combo, it absorbs quickly and isn't too heavy/greasy for my combo/oily skin, so it's great for use during the day prior to my sunscreen, which I then wear under makeup. Sometimes thicker, heavier creams and moisturizers, followed by sunscreen, then primer, then foundation, etc., end up leaving your makeup slipping and sliding, and this just absorbs in and sets while still leaving my skin feeling very smooth and hydrated. Definitely an A+ product.

    Amazing product
    • This is an excellent moisturiser for those of you with acne/post acne scars. I use it after cleansing and toning, and before putting on my sunscreen. It adds extra moisture to my skin which I need since I use acne medication. I have found since using this my spots are so much less visible and this does not cause me to break out, or feel heavy. It moisturizes, and yet feels very light, fresh and you feel good about wearing it. I would recommend this highly.

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.
