Fantastic! I am spoiled!

Comments about RESIST Anti-Aging Clear Skin Hydrator - 1.7 oz:
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?
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

From clear and normal to rosacea and milia in just 8 hours!
from Boerne, TX
About Me Beauty Conscious, Beautypedia Advocate
After leaving Colorado and dry skin behind a year ago, I found my skin had changed for the better after moving to south Texas. I changed products from Paula's skin recovery line and started using others to find my new best regimen. The Resist Super-Light Daily Wrinkle Defense and Perfectly Balanced Foaming Cleaners became new favorites, so I decided to purchase a sample of the hydrator. Night one, I really liked the silky smooth and moisturizing formula because it wasn't too heavy. Use it a second night, and the next morning my normally clear skin looked as if I'd suffered from rosacea and acne my entire life. My daughter even asked me what was wrong with my face and said I looked like a white-masked raccoon! My red skin also had what appears to be milia, and my face felt sort of slimy like the coating on a rubber chew toy. Appears to work for many, but there appears to be an ingredient that doesn't work well for plenty of us, too.

Not For me
from Oshawa, Ontario, Canada
About Me Skin Care Professional
Im sure this product works great for other people, it just didnt work for me. I have combination skin that is dry in some places, but very acne prone in others. After using this moisturizer for a few days, I had the same problem as another reviewer below: my skin got very red and burnt, almost like a sunburn. My skin was way more dry, this did not moisturize me at all, but again i'm not sure whether my skin is too dry for this, or whether that was the result of the reaction again. Every other product in my skincare routine is Paulas Choice, so I know they make great products.. Just for some reason this did not agree with my skin at all, which makes sense because everyone is different so it cant work for all skin types. It was just a bit upsetting to have that sort of reaction, my face was so red and sore for a few days. I took it out of my rotation and my skin cleared up. These things happen though, nothing against Paulas Choice as I love many other products. This just wasn't made for me unfortunately.

Not For Me
from Toronto, ON
About Me Beauty Conscious, Minimalist
I really wanted to like this because it sounds perfect for my acne-prone skin and hyperpigmentation but it didn't moisturize my skin. I actually got patches of dry skin in my t-zone area after using this for a couple of days (my cheeks are normally oily). It also feels like it just stays on top of my skin, like a layer of film, and doesn't get absorbed. However, like all PC products it smells great, for not being scented, and is not greasy at all.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

About Me Beauty Conscious
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this stuff. It is a bit pricey for me but I feel it is worth every cent. Someone gave me a super expensive facial cream (like $200 facial cream) and . . . . I see/feel no difference between the fancy cream & my Paula's cream. My skin feels & looks amazing after using either product. So if you are unsure, buy this item. It is amazing & your skin will feel smooth & supple.

A Favorite Product!
Please never discontinue this magical moisturizer! I'm still coping with acne while needing anti-ageing results. I can use this moisturizer even on the oily parts of my combination skin. The results are instant: younger-looking skin, refined texture and a healthy bloom - it's hard to even describe! The way this product works on my skin is close to miraculous. I have many skin issues and find many Paula products to be essential, but this Clear Skin Hydrator is in the top 2 or 3. I never want to go without this stuff!
Not a good cream for me.
from WA state
I tried this cream because I saw that a lot of people on you tube were using it and loved it. However, the first time I used it it made my face feel extremely tingly, burnt and then it felt like it was going numb. There is something in this cream that my skin must have been allergic to. For the next 2 days my skin was red and felt sunburnt. I am sure this product will work for many people but just do a test on your skin to see if you may be allergic to something in it. I love the other paula's products I am using.

Soothing and does what it promises
I love how soothing this project feels on my sensitive, combination skin with rosacea. It provides the perfect amount of moisture for me and spreads evenly. It has faded my breakout red marks, too. Finally a moisturizer that is perfect for my crazy problem skin!

By Born Skeptic
I wanted to love this cream. It's wonderfully rich and emollient. It seems perfect for a nighttime treatment. Unfortunately, it caused me to break out in multiple locations after a few uses, which was disappointing because I use a lot of the Resist products. I don't think it works for combination or oily skin. If you have dry skin, definitely try it.

One of the Best!
from Boise, ID
I've been using this product on and off for about 2 years now, in which time my fair skin has gone from super oily to somewhat normal/combo. I despise prods that feel heavy or induce oiliness on my face, which this moisturizer has never done either. I use about 2-3 shallow pumps, dash across my forehead, nose, cheeks and chin then blend evenly around my entire face. Within 1-2 minutes after applying, it has completely absorbed, evened out any redness and leaves my skin totally shine free, incredibly smooth and evenly toned. It doesn't feel like I've put anything on my face at all, I LOVE that! If there was only 1 PC product that I could have on a remote island, this would be it! Please never ever change this formula :D
