My year-round cleanser
About Me Budget Buyer
Comments about RESIST Hydrating Cleanser - 6.4 oz:
I decided to try this cleanser a few years ago when winter hit since my normally oily-ish skin started drying out from the cold weather and constant inside heat. It's very soothing for my skin. I actually started using it all year now. The only concern is I wish it was in a flip top container instead of a pump. When the product is low I have to turn it upside down to get the last amount of cleanser but even then I feel like I lose some valuable product. I won't stop using this but please maybe consider changing the packaging. Or maybe someone can suggest a way for me to get the last bit of product out of the pump bottle w/o wasting product? Thanks Paula for your great products!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Rinses clean, removes all sunscreen + makeup
from Seattle, WA
I have dry, sensitive, rosacea skin and cannot double-cleanse because it overstrips and senstitizes my skin. Because of that I am always looking for a great one-step cleanser that will remove my sunscreen and foundation. This cleanser is special in that it removes all traces of sunscreen and makeup in one step, and yet it rinses completely clean with no greasy feeling left behind. For me this is a perfect summer cleanser, but for winter I need a richer, more moisturizing cleanser to combat winter dry + flaky skin. Highly recommend for normal skin all year-round and for dry skin in summer.

Resist Hydrating Cleanser is Uncomfortable on my face
from Paris, France
About Me Brand Buyer
I have always used this cleanser. Recently, I started using Vitamin C, AHA, BHA, Serums with Retinol and Retin A. My skin is so dry that when I wash it with this cleanser, it stings and burns my face.I switched to Skin Recovery Cream Cleanser which is perfect for me since I have been using it. I hope to go back to the Hydrating Cleanser, as I have 4 more bottles to use up.
Great for oily sensitive skin
I have tried the RESIST for Oily/Combo skin line, the clear line, and skin balancing line, and I prefer this cleanser to them all. It is gentle and balancing, and leaves my sensitive skin feeling soothed and clean. One of my favorite PC products and use daily!
This is a gentle cleanser with a smooth texture that truly softens skin without drying. I can't say it's moisturizing but it definitely makes my skin feel great after using it. Because I use some heavy duty makeup, I need to wipe it off with a makeup remover first. Resist Hydrating Cleanser removes the last traces of makeup even around the eyes. No stinging of the eyes! Try this, you'll like it!
Perfect for me!
About Me Minimalist
This is perfect for me. I like that it's non-drying but still takes off my make-up (I generally wear light make-up so I don't know how effective it would be for heavy make-up). It's soothing and non-drying and yet it rinses off cleanly and without residue.

Burns. my Eyes
from Haleiwa, HI
About Me Beauty Conscious
I'm new to Paula's Choice skin care, and am in love with the Resist line for normal to dry skin. This cleanser smells lovely, thoroughly removes my make-up and leaves my skin feeling hydrated, yet clean. It works wonderfully with my Clarisonic, too. However, I am disappointed to say that the cleanser burns my eyes when I use it to remove my eye make-up, and for that reason I feel obligated to give it 3 stars. I will use it until it is completely empty, but will not repurchase it. That being said, I will continue to use all of the other products. Mahalo!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Much To Be Desired
By The Analyst
from Little Rock, AR
I have combination skin, however, overtime my skin has become much more dry which is why I am searching for a new cleanser to add to my current regimen. Cerave Hydrating cleanser is my product of choice, but I've been curious about Paula's Choice, so I bought samples of this product. Overall this product is far from hydrating; it leaves my skin the opposite of hydrated. After cleansing with this product, my skin feelse dry and tight, which is what I would expect from a foaming face wash. Overall I am happy that I purchased the samples instead, seeing that this product is very pricey.

I found my cleanser!
from Surrey, BC
Since I decided that Cetaphil wasn't doing a good enough job for me, I've tried several different cleansers - both PC and drugstore brands. Nothing every completely satisfied me until I tried this. It is thick and creamy and feels nice to use. It rinses well and leaves my skin feeling neutral - not dry OR overly moisturized. I wanted to stop using a toner to cut down on my bedtime routine, and with this, I am able to. I usually don't use foundation, but the few times I have this cleanser got all of it off - I followed with toner and the cotton pad was completely clean! I don't recall that ever happening with ANY cleanser I've ever used.This is IT for me. My search is over. LOVE IT!
Feels like a lotion, but works like a cleasner
I use this product mostly in the morning, I would use it more but its expense to me. It cleans and keeps my face hydrated without striping my natural oils , thus my face is less red and smooth yet totally clean . its properties in it are very good with balancing out the ph levels in my skin and I've never had any breakout concerns from this cleanser. If you try and take a full face of cake makeup off with it before using makeup remover wipes, you will need to wash your face twice, becuz its very gentle.
