    Finally at 55, I have an effective skincare regime!
    • Better late than never....I am extremely happy with the results of these products. Within weeks I saw a noticeable change. Now, after 2 months, fine lines, unevenness in complexion, little lumps and bumps have all decreased significantly. My skin is so smooth I honestly can't believe it. I've had no irritation or redness and it takes only a few minutes per day. I wish I would have started years ago. It's never too late to start a regime. Thank you Paula and your efficient team!

    No One Believes My Age!
    • I have been using Paula's Resist line for about 2 years now. My skin has improved gradually but visibly over that period. It happens all the time - I'm 62 and people will say "you don't look old enough to be a senior" and they stop dead in their tracks with mouth gaping when I tell them how old I am! (I've been "carded" for Senior rates many times!) People always think I'm in my late 40's to early 50's. Thank you Paula for products that are reasonably priced, easy to use, and - THEY WORK!

    Life Changing
    • I have used Paula's products for years and thought it was time to express my thanks. I found her line by accident when I picked up a copy of her book. As an Educator I know that you can't just "try" anything. You have to have Science and research to back up your strategy. That is exactly what Paula has done with her products. She has the facts and research to back up what she sells.. She uses research and facts in the way she will package the products . Her products have changed my life.

    excellent product
    • I have never left a review before but feel compelled to do so now. I started using this kit about 6 weeks ago and have noticed such a tremendous difference in my skin - more evenly toned, more luminous, just healthier and younger looking. And several friends have commented on how lovely my skin looks. This is a wonderful product. Thank you!

    great!
    • I purchased this kit about a year ago. I don't think it is the right product for me because I have combination skin and this tended to mine oily. However I noticed some fine lines disappearing (I am in my 20ies). Next time I will try the BHA range

    In love!
    • I am so impressed with this line! Generally people tell me I have lovely skin, and I do have good skin - now it is starting to look lovely again. Soft and so smooth. My super fine lines around my eyes appear plump and delicious. All those years of baking in the hot Australian sun are starting to catch up with me now I am 41, lets hope Paula can stop that nonsense. Oh and Aussies I was a loyal Dr Lewinns user but it seemed to have no punch anymore - this is better and cheaper, win win!

    • I am 48 and have very dry skin. I have invested in so many products. I hesitated for a long time before purchasing anything from Paula's Choice. It is without hesitation that I write this review to share that for my skincare needs, I will never stray from Paula's Choice. My skin is hydrated, it is comfortable, it is glowing. These products do what they say they are going to do. My only regret is that I waited for so long. Paula, thank you so much for keeping your promises!!

    • I used this kit for 2 weeks now and I see dramatic difference of my skin... For the good. I've stopped using foundation in the daytime because my skin is glowing and very even. I absolutely love it. I do think 5 steps is a bit much... Thank you, M

    My must-have products
    • This kit is a must-have for me! I am only 30 but I grew up in Miami and my skin has suffered significant sun damage. I have heard people talk about Paula's Choice products before and finally decided to take the plunge - it's a god-send. I also use the BHA 2% gel. For reference - I have very oily skin with large pores and these products do not increase the oiliness at all! Please, please make this kit available on the UK website!

    excellent PC service and company values although this line isn't for the super sensitive
    • Sadly I'm among the few that this product line didn't work; I have super sensitive skin and changing to this new system was too much for it. I contacted customer service while phasing out the products and was happy to get immediate responses back (thanks Moniquca!). I will stick to PC since I really appreciate the commitment to customers, to no animal testing, and to its green policy. I will try a other PC products as well as get samples before ordering sets!

    Paula's Choice is the best decision I hav ever made!
    • I am currently 25 years old and was looking for real products that live up to their claims. This kit is super amazing! It made my skin super smooth,bright and I even have less breakouts when I am on my period. This kit made me feel like it worked overnight compared to my past skincare products I used to rely on. I am even more amazed that these products are at an affordable price for something that works like magic. Thank you Paula!

    Very pleased - wish I had not waited
    • I've been hearing about Paula's Choice products for years, but I clung to my department store line, basically paying for advertising copy, superfluous packaging and hype. I am so pleased with this collection. After two months my under eye and crow's feet area are much improved; I see some improvement in the upper lid; age spots seem to be fading - almost airbrushed! Best - my chronic bloodshot eye problem ceased! My skin appears more even and healthier. My only regret is waiting so long.

    • Bought this with doubts at the difference it would make. My doubts have completely vanished, along with one of my lines. The products are easy to use and despite being a 5 stage system it doesn't take along, I even manage to do it before a 530am shift. My skin is softer and the wrinkles are less noticeable, along with the dark rings under my eyes. Thank you Paula you are a saviour for my previously tired skin. I am now going to try the rosacea products for my husband

    Beautiful products for Beautiful skin
    • Don't debate ordering as I did for months. My expectations were exceeded as I have radiant supple lovely skin for my 43 year old face. I don't expect my early wrinkles to vanish. A plump, healthier skin that is nourished with a radiance and diminished lines is what I got. As a whole great value tho the cellular creme is a bit heavy for my preference tho its the only ding in a near perfect collection. I add a more potent retinol which works beautifully.

    Love It!!
    • This line has had an amazing effect on my 39 year old skin! I stumbled upon the Beautypedia website while searching for a new night cream. After reading the many reviews and information about necessary ingredients in a good skin care line, I decided to order the Resist kit thinking I could always return it if it doesn't work for me. I am so glad I decided to try it out! Amazing results, my skin has never looked better!!

    Wonderful products!
    • I've been using the RESIST line for six weeks and I can't believe the difference in my skin. I have played "product roulette" for many years - RESIST delivers results. My skin is severely sun damaged (I am of the age of baby oil and reflectors), prone to break outs, eczema, acne scars - you get the picture. My skin looks tighter and brighter, pores are diminished, NO breakouts (this is key) and wonderful hydration so my makeup looks much better. Only wish I started 10 years ago. I'm sold!!

    What a difference!
    • With advancing years, I have needed to resort to the makeup to make my aging skin (enlarged pores, sallow and uneven skin tone, and some light sun spots) look better. After much $ spent trying to perfect this cosmetic trickery, I decided on a different approach - treat my skin to what it needs. I've been using the RESIST line for a month and have had wonderful results, more than I ever expected. Makeup is now optional. Highly, highly recommend.

    Love, love, love!
    • Using Resist system for about 3 years has made me a Paula's Choice lover! Turned 60 on my last birthday & steady compliments prove that my skin is better than it was before. The stickers helped the am/pm regimen easily become a habit. (I "resist" using anything that takes time, but this is so easy & well worth just a few short minutes a day.) Service is great. I totally trust Paula's knowledgable, HONEST reviews. I never write a review, but had to write this to return the favor! Thank u, Paula!

    Outstanding product line
    • My life-long search for the best skin care products ended the day I opened my Resist Anti-Aging System. Not long after I started using the products, I started to get compliments on my skin; something I never had in all my years of using expensive department store lines. My skin is soft and wrinkle-free, with no more dry patches or breakouts, and far, far fewerwhiteheads. I'll never use anything else (unless Paula's Choice comes up with something even better, that is).

    Stunning and rapid results!
    • I stared with Resist when I switched to PC from Olay/Nuetro/Clinique for Men mix. I swear this is true: I saw more results in the first week than I ever had over months of daily use of the rest of the market products. I turned 50 last year and my first wrinkle turned up; it's gone now. My skin is smooth, even toned, and although I suffer from chronic insomnia I am constantly told I look well rested! Actually, all of PC products are great, and the CS department is a dream come true.

I have not experienced any white heads from this product, and that really surprises me, because that is usually a problem with me. My skin feels fresh and soft. Great price for a great product!!

    • This shit is the bomb. I don't have full blown acne but have an occasional bump here and there which left a couple post acne red marks. Both red marks were halfway gone after one week and now at 3 weeks are barely there! Wrinkles are far less noticeable too! Very happy with this Resist line and will never stop using as my face is brighter and I get compliments almost daily! Thank you Paula!!!!

    Amazing Results!
    • I ordered the Resist Anti-Aging System in September and noticed almost immediate improvement in my skin. The wrinkles and fine lines were becoming much less obvious and the brown spots were fading. I had a knee replacement in October and didn't use the products during early recovery. Now that I'm using them again, I am noticing the same improvements as before. Thank you, Paula, for developing such a fine system that is improving my 70-year-old face!

    • This product line, which Paul's Choice was kind enough to give to me as a trial, wasn't a good fit. It clearly is well formulated. The cleanser really cleans, maybe not to the full extent that is expected from a cleanser, but still works ok. the Toner, although good, doesn't seem to be worthwhile. My derm says its not really needed. Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum is like Vaseline. On my semi combined, oily skin added to much moisture. reduced pore! less acne. smoother skin.

Resist Optimal Results Hydrating Cleanser:
DIRECTIONS: Splash the face and eye area generously with tepid to slightly warm water. Spread a small amount of cleanser (1-2 pumps) over your fingers and apply to facial skin and the eye area with gentle circular motions. Rinse well and pat dry with a soft towel. For best results, follow with Paula's Choice Resist Advanced Replenishing Toner.

Resist Advanced Replenishing Toner:
DIRECTIONS: Use after Resist Optimal Results Hydrating Cleanser. Lightly soak a large cotton pad with Resist Advanced Replenishing Toner and gently stroke over facial skin. Do not rinse. Follow with Paula's Choice Resist moisturizer, sunscreen, or treatment product.

Resist Daily Smoothing Treatment with 5% AHA:
DIRECTIONS: Apply daily after cleansing and toning. Dispense 1–2 pumps and smooth over entire face. Follow with Paula's Choice Resist Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum and/or Resist Barrier Repair Moisturizer or Resist Anti-Aging Clear Skin Hydrator. First-time users should apply once daily, preferably at night. For maximum results, alternate with Resist Weekly Resurfacing Treatment with 10% AHA once per week. Avoid direct contact with eyes.

Sunburn Alert: This product contains an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that may increase your skin's sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility of sunburn. Use a sunscreen, wear protective clothing, and limit sun exposure while using this product and for a week afterwards.

Resist Weekly Resurfacing Treatment with 10% AHA:
DIRECTIONS: Apply only at night after cleansing and toning. Using a cotton pad, gently stroke a dime-sized amount over the entire face. It can be left on or rinsed off after 10 minutes depending on your skin's sensitivity. Follow with a Paula's Choice Resist Antioxidant Concentrate Serum and/or moisturizer. On the night(s) you use this treatment do not use other exfoliants or scrubs at the same time. In the mornings you can use other exfoliants as per your normal routine. If you're using a prescription retinoid product (i.e. Renova) apply the exfoliant first and allow it to set, then apply the retinoid product. Follow with a serum and/or moisturizer.

Resist Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum:
DIRECTIONS: At night, smooth a few drops onto skin after cleansing, toning, and exfoliating. May be applied under or over moisturizer. May be worn under makeup and applied around the eyes. May be used twice per day if desired.

Resist Cellular Defense Daily Moisturizer SPF 25:
DIRECTIONS: Apply liberally every day before sun exposure as the last step of your morning Resist skin-care routine. Do not apply any other skin-care product over this sunscreen. Once absorbed, proceed with your normal makeup application.

Resist Barrier Repair Moisturizer:
DIRECTIONS: Resist Barrier Repair Moisturizer should be used as part of your daily skin-care routine including cleansing, toning, using an AHA or BHA exfoliant, and Resist Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum. During the daytime, be sure to follow with a foundation rated with an SPF 15 or greater or follow with a sunscreen rated SPF 15 or greater. Works beautifully as your eye or neck cream.

Resist Optimal Results Hydrating Cleanser:

How does Resist Optimal Results Hydrating Cleanser differ from Skin Recovery Cleanser?

Resist Optimal Results Hydrating Cleanser features a completely different texture than Skin Recovery Cleanser. Although both are water soluble cleansing lotions, Resist Optimal Results Hydrating Cleanser has a lighter, silkier feel designed to work better for dry, sun damaged skin. What's more, it also serves as the perfect first step in your Resist skin-care routine, setting you up for younger-looking, healthier skin.

How is Resist Optimal Results Hydrating Cleanser "antiaging"?

The gentle formula cleanses skin by not disrupting its barrier. As a result, with each use you're not rinsing key elements skin needs to look younger and healthier down the drain. By keeping your skin's barrier more intact during the cleansing process, your skin is able to hold on to the naturally-occurring elements it needs to strengthen and repair itself. When your skin-care routine respects skin's barrier integrity and replenishes it with the ingredients it needs to look and act younger, you will see more youthful skin!

Resist Advanced Replenishing Toner:

What do toners "tone"? I thought Paula didn't recommend toners!

Paula has always recommended toners that are well-formulated. Toners can be a great after-cleansing step to be sure you've removed all your makeup. When properly formulated, they soothe skin and provide an extra dose of antioxidants and repairing ingredients.

What are the main differences between the five Paula's Choice toners?

Every Paula's Choice toner repairs skin, provides antioxidants, and helps remove last traces of makeup. They do not contain alcohol, fragrance, or unnecessary irritants such as menthol, peppermint, and citrus oils. Below you'll find a brief description for each distinct toner.

Resist Advanced Replenishing Toner is a specialized formula designed to supply aging skin with a broad range of ingredients it needs to produce healthy collagen while reducing wrinkles. It is a super-charged version of our popular Skin Recovery Enriched Calming Toner, with a specific emphasis on improving the signs of aging skin.

Hydralight Healthy Skin Refreshing Toner is an excellent choice for normal to oily/combination skin. It provides a weightless finish, and although it feels very light, it supplies skin with potent antioxidants and anti-irritants.

Moisture Boost Essential Hydrating Toner contains a broad range of ingredients that aid skin's barrier repair process so those with normal to dry skin will receive even more benefit from their Paula's Choice moisturizer and/or treatment product. Moisture Boost Essential Hydrating Toner feels lighter than our Skin Recovery Enriched Calming Toner.

Skin Recovery Enriched Calming Toner for normal to very dry skin is for those who need more help protecting their skin from environmental damage, redness, or dryness. Skin Recovery Enriched Calming Toner has a rich, milky liquid texture and contains more plant oils and other emollients for intense hydration. Excellent for rosacea!

Skin Balancing Pore-Reducing Toner for normal to oily/combination skin is excellent to help normalize skin and reduce signs of extreme combination skin (oily and dry areas). Its cell-communicating ingredients help balance skin and reduce enlarged pores.

Earth Sourced Purely Natural Refreshing Toner is for all skin types. It has a distinctive, liquid-gel formula bursting with antioxidants proven to repair skin and stimulate collagen production. The formula uses proprietary technology that truly captures the best of nature and modern science.

Resist Daily Smoothing Treatment with 5% AHA:

How should I alternate using Resist Daily Smoothing Treatment with Resist Weekly Resurfacing Treatment?

Resist Weekly Resurfacing Treatment is recommended for use at night, at least once but up to 4 or 5 times per week depending on how your skin responds. Since we do not advise using other exfoliants at the same time as Resist Weekly Resurfacing Treatment, you can apply Resist Daily Smoothing Treatment as part of your morning skin-care routine or on night(s) you do not apply the Resist Weekly Resurfacing Treatment. In the morning, if desired, you can apply Resist Daily Smoothing Treatment after cleansing and toning or you can limit use of the Daily Smoothing Treatment to nighttime (this is best for first-time users). For daytime, follow with a serum and/or moisturizer or foundation rated SPF 15 or greater.

How does the Resist Daily Smoothing Treatment differ from the Skin Perfecting 8% AHA Gel Exfoliant?

While both of these products are AHA exfoliants, the texture and overall formulas differ. The Resist Daily Smoothing Treatment is an advanced AHA lotion that contains 5% glycolic acid and numerous antiaging ingredients designed to improve wrinkles. The 8% AHA Gel contains 8% glycolic acid formulated in a silky gel base with soothing agents and antioxidants. Both are excellent products but Resist Daily Smoothing Treatment offers additional benefits that go beyond what our 8% AHA Gel does, especially if wrinkles are a chief concern.

Can I use Resist Daily Smoothing Treatment with one of the Resist skin lighteners?

Yes, but not at the same time unless they are applied to separate areas of your face. This is because both of our Resist skin lighteners contain an exfoliant (the Lotion has glycolic acid and the Gel has salicylic acid). If you're using one of our Resist skin lighteners, you may apply it in the morning or on the nights you do not apply the Resist Daily Smoothing Treatment or apply the skin lightener only to discolorations and apply Resist Daily Smoothing Treatment over the rest of your face.

Can I use Resist Daily Smoothing Treatment at the same time as one of Paula's Choice BHA products?

Yes, but ultimately it is not necessary to use an AHA and BHA exfoliant at the same time. Exfoliation is a balancing act that requires not tipping the scale so the potential for irritation outweighs the benefits. Using multiple exfoliants at the same time increases the likelihood of irritation and doesn't necessarily provide greater benefits. If you'd like to use a BHA product and Resist Daily Smoothing Treatment, we recommend applying one in the morning and the other in the evening. Which one you apply when is a mater of personal preference.

Is Resist Daily Smoothing Treatment recommended for use around the eyes?

Yes, but only up to the orbital bone area (the bony ridge that stops just before the immediate undereye area). Do not apply Resist Daily Smoothing Treatment to the eyelid or underbrow area.

At what point after my laser and/or peel procedure can I begin using my AHA exfoliant again?

First, we urge you to follow the post-procedure instructions your doctor or nurse provided. If nothing was mentioned about when to resume use of an AHA exfoliant, please contact the doctor's office where you had the procedure done. Otherwise, our general advice is to wait until skin has returned to its normal texture and color. This may mean waiting a few days or, depending on the depth of the peel or laser procedure, it may mean waiting several weeks. Both peels and laser procedures can temporarily leave skin extra-sensitive, so if in doubt it's best to wait rather than rush things. Once you begin using your AHA exfoliant again, pay attention to how your skin responds and adjust frequency of use accordingly. Discontinue use if you notice signs of irritation.

Resist Weekly Resurfacing Treatment with 10% AHA:

Is it OK to use Resist Weekly Resurfacing Treatment more than once per week?

Yes, but we do not recommend doing so until you've seen how your skin responds to this treatment. Overuse may not provide better results; most people will find using this at night either once a week or up to 2 or 3 times per week produces great results, and you can use another Paula's Choice exfoliant on other nights. If you have advanced sun damage 4 or 5 times week may be extremely beneficial.

How should I alternate using Resist Weekly Resurfacing Treatment with Resist Daily Smoothing Treatment?

Resist Weekly Resurfacing Treatment is recommended for use at night, at least once but up to 4 or 5 times per week. Since we do not advise using other exfoliants at the same time that you apply Resist Weekly Resurfacing Treatment, you can apply Resist Daily Smoothing Treatment as part of your morning skin-care routine or on nights you do not apply the Resist Weekly Resurfacing Treatment. In the morning, Resist Daily Smoothing Treatment should be applied after cleansing and toning. Follow with a serum and/or moisturizer or foundation rated SPF 15 or greater.

How does the Resist Weekly Resurfacing Treatment differ from Skin Perfecting 8% AHA Gel?

The Resist Weekly Resurfacing Treatment is a specialized AHA product that not only contains a higher concentration of glycolic acid than our 8% AHA Gel, but also includes a penetration enhancer to help it work faster and deeper. Resist Weekly Resurfacing Treatment also features a unique delivery system and is formulated with several potent anti-irritants and antioxidants such as green tea, which is proven to stimulate collagen and elastin production.

Can I use Resist Weekly Resurfacing Treatment with one of the Resist skin lighteners?

Yes, but not at the same time. This is because both of our Resist skin lighteners contain an exfoliant (the Lotion has glycolic acid and the Gel has salicylic acid). If you're using one of our Resist skin lighteners, you may apply it in the morning or on the nights you do not apply the Resist Weekly Resurfacing Treatment.

Can I use Resist Weekly Resurfacing Treatment at the same time as one of Paula's Choice BHA products?

We do not recommend the use of any other exfoliant, including Paula's Choice BHA products with salicylic acid, be applied at the same time as Resist Weekly Resurfacing Treatment. Doing so increases the risk of irritation that excessive exfoliation can cause and irritation is never the goal. It is fine to apply any of our BHA products in the morning or on the nights you are not applying Resist Weekly Resurfacing Treatment.

Is Resist Weekly Resurfacing Treatment recommended for use around the eyes?

Yes, but only up to the orbital bone area (the bony ridge that stops just before the immediate undereye area). Do not apply Resist Weekly Resurfacing Treatment to the eyelid or underbrow area

What if my skin experiences a stinging or tingling sensation from Resist Weekly Resurfacing Treatment?

Upon application to cleansed, toned skin, some people may experience a small amount of tingling or feel a stinging sensation. This is normal and it should dissipate quickly and stop with ongoing use. If the tingling or stinging sensation does not stop or worsens, or if your skin becomes red or feels like it's burning, immediately rinse Resist Weekly Resurfacing Treatment with plain water and gently pat dry. Should this occur, ongoing use is not recommended. You may want to try another Paula's Choice exfoliant and our Customer Service team is happy to help you select an alternate option.

I am using a prescription retinoid product (i.e.  Renova, Retin-A). Is it OK for me to use Resist Weekly Resurfacing Treatment?

Yes, but be aware that the prescription retinoid may increase your skin's sensitivity to this AHA treatment. We recommend proceeding with caution, and only applying Resist Weekly Resurfacing Treatment once per week. You would apply it before your prescription retinoid product and either rinse the Resurfacing Treatment after 10 minutes or wait until it has absorbed before applying your prescription retinoid.

At what point after my laser and/or peel procedure can I begin using my AHA exfoliant again?

First, we urge you to follow the post-procedure instructions your doctor or nurse provided and follow those guidelines. If nothing was mentioned about when to resume use of an AHA exfoliant, please contact the doctor's office where you had the procedure done. Otherwise, our general advice is to wait until skin has returned to its normal texture and color. This may mean waiting a few days or, depending on the depth of the peel or laser procedure, it may mean waiting several weeks. Both peels and laser procedures can temporarily leave skin extra-sensitive, so if in doubt it's best to wait rather than rush things. Once you begin using your AHA exfoliant again, pay attention to how your skin responds and adjust frequency of use accordingly. Discontinue use if you notice signs of irritation.

Resist Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum:

Which Paula’s Choice serum should I use?

All skin types can use any of our serum and each provides multiple anti-aging benefits, but there are some formulary distinctions that make certain Paula’s Choice serums preferred for specific skin types. Here’s how they break down:

  • Resist Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum and Resist Intensive Wrinkle Repair Retinol Serum can be used by all skin types, including sensitive skin. The Resist Intensive Wrinkle Repair Serum contains the highest amount of retinol.
  • Skin Recovery Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum is best for normal to very dry skin because it contains plant oils.
  • Skin Balancing Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum is best for normal to oily or combination or breakout-prone skin because it has the lightest texture and weightless finish.
  • Resist Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum is the only Paula’s Choice serum that does not contain retinol. Therefore, it’s the natural choice for anyone whose skin cannot tolerate this ingredient.

At what point after my laser and/or peel procedure can I begin using my serum again?

First, we urge you to follow the post-procedure instructions your doctor or nurse provided and follow those guidelines. If nothing was mentioned about when to resume use of a serum, please contact the doctor's office where you had the procedure done. Otherwise, our general advice is to begin using your serum again as soon as possible. All of our serums contain skin-repairing, anti-inflammatory, and replenishing ingredients that calm reddened skin and help enhance the healing process. Make sure you're also protecting your "new" skin every day with a product rated SPF 15 or greater.

Resist Cellular Defense Daily Moisturizer with SPF 25:

Should I reapply Resist Cellular Defense Daily Moisturizer during the day?

For casual wear, meaning less than four hours total time out in the sun, it is not necessary to reapply this moisturizer with sunscreen as you will be protected all day. If you are perspiring or just spending a longer period of time outdoors, it should be reapplied every few hours to maintain the stated level of protection.

How is Resist Cellular Defense Daily Moisturizer SPF 25 different from Skin Recovery Daily Moisturizing Lotion SPF 15?

Although both products provide reliable broad-spectrum sun protection, Resist Cellular Defense SPF 25 offers a greater amount of sun protection. The Resist formula contains titanium dioxide as its active ingredient while Skin Recovery Daily Moisturizing Lotion SPF 15 contains a blend of titanium dioxide and zinc oxide. Both formulas contain antioxidants to help defend skin against signs of aging, but each has its own blend.

Texture-wise, these two daytime moisturizers with sunscreen are quite similar. Both provide hydration and a silky, radiant finish those with normal to dry skin will appreciate best. Resist Cellular Defense SPF 25 leaves less sheen on skin when compared to Skin Recovery Daily Moisturizing Lotion SPF 15.

Is Resist Cellular Defense Daily Moisturizer SPF 25 the only Paula's Choice moisturizer with sunscreen that provides antiaging benefits?

Definitely not! Every Paula's Choice daytime moisturizer with sunscreens as well as our "body" sunscreens (which can also be applied to the face) provide broad-spectrum sun protection and contain antioxidants for enhanced defense and antiaging benefits. Resist Cellular Defense SPF 25 contains an antioxidant blend that complements the other Resist products from Paula's Choice, including the Daily Smoothing Treatment and Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum.

I notice I get a white cast after applying Resist Cellular Defense Daily Moisturizer. Anything I can do to minimize this?

Some people, typically those with medium to tan or olive skin tones, will notice a bit of a white to pale violet cast after applying Resist Cellular Defense Daily Moisturizer SPF 25. This is due to the amount of mineral active (titanium dioxide) this moisturizer with sunscreen contains. If this happens to you, here's what you can do to eliminate the white cast:

Experiment by applying a drop or two of a sheer bronzing gel (Clinique makes a good one) over Resist Cellular Defense Daily Moisturizer. You can also mix a drop or two of the bronzing gel with this daytime moisturizer before applying. The bronze will offset the white cast and should make your skin tone look more natural without losing the anti-aging sun protection this provides. Of course you can also apply a Paula's Choice foundation with sunscreen over Resist Cellular Defense Daily Moisturizer, too.

Resist Barrier Repair Moisturizer:

How is the Resist Barrier Repair Moisturizer different from the other Paula's Choice facial moisturizers?

Resist Barrier Repair Moisturizer is a state-of-the-art formula specifically designed to address the advanced needs of those concerned with wrinkles and signs of aging. Resist Barrier Repair Moisturizer has more antioxidants, a greater range of emollients (including several ingredients that mimic the structure and function of healthy skin) and higher levels of proven cell-communicating ingredients that work to boost collagen production. Its silky texture provides the moisture normal to dry skin needs without feeling thick, heavy, or occlusive. 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.

My skin is dry. Which moisturizer do you recommend?

Several Paula's Choice moisturizers would work well for you. Choosing the perfect moisturizer has a lot to do with personal preference and trying a product to determine which one works best on your skin. A good place to start, especially if signs of aging are a concern, is with our Resist Barrier Repair Moisturizer. If you want a richer texture, try our Moisture Boost Hydrating Treatment Cream or Skin Recovery Moisturizer. It is also helpful to use our Resist Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum or Skin Recovery Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum in combination with (on top of or underneath) any moisturizer you apply. You may also wish to treat your dry skin to frequent applications of our Skin Recovery Hydrating Treatment Mask.

Do I need to use a serum with Resist Barrier Repair Moisturizer?

Ideally, yes. Although Resist Barrier Repair Moisturizer contains an excellent blend of antioxidants, it is a good idea to pair it with our Resist Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum for enhanced results. When it comes to antioxidant and topical application to skin, more is generally better! By combining Resist Barrier Repair Moisturizer with our Resist Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum, you're treating skin to an even more extraordinary combination of ingredients that help you look younger and Resist signs of aging.

Which Super Antioxidant Concentrate is best for use with Resist Barrier Repair Moisturizer?

Generally, we recommend pairing Resist Barrier Repair Moisturizer with Resist Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum. However, our Skin Recovery or Skin Balancing Super Antioxidant Concentrates are also options. Those with normal to very dry skin may want to consider our Skin Recovery Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum. If you have normal to oily/combination skin, consider our Skin Balancing Super Antioxidant Mattifying Concentrate Serum. All skin types can use Resist Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum. This serum is the one to choose if you only want one of your antiaging skin-care products to supply retinol (Resist Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum does not contain retinol). It is also an option to use one Antioxidant Concentrate as part of your morning routine and another version for evening. Samples are available so you can experiment and see which formula works best with Resist Barrier Repair Moisturizer and your skin.
