    Natural-looking and smooth
    • I want a foundation that will give light to medium coverage without looking like a foundation, and this is it. Only a small amount is needed and should be blended quickly; after it's on, it stays on, giving my skin a brighter, smoother look without looking the least bit artificial. People have been surprised when I've told them I'm wearing foundation! It doesn't settle into the wrinkles and looks natural all day. I love this stuff.

    Definitely not Disappointed!
    • I purchase this foundation after using Paula's Choice skin care products. I was definitely not disappointed. This foundation was the perfect color, goes on so smooth and evenly. It seems to last the entire day. I would say this is a sheer to medium coverage that you could build to a more heavy finish if desired. Love the clean feel of it. Can't say enough about how positive my experience with Paul'a Choice products has been.

    amending comment
    • I would like to amend a previous comment. I believe the ingredient Dimethicone; the silicone/emollient is what causes the "rolling." This product reminds me of smash box primer

    Doesn't blend well...
    • I had high hopes for this one. The tan color is good but it doesn't blend well. It sort of feels like it has too much titanium dioxide and it seems to "roll" somewhat like a primer after it sets. It settles into lines and dry spots even with a moisturizer and primer.

    Only So-S0
    • I can't seem to find the right color so this just doesn't look good on me at all. I probably should have returned it but I threw it away. No luck at all with Paula's foundations.

    all day healthy and great looking skin, at last!
    • I've used Paula's Choice skin care for years, but only recently tried the foundations... WOW. It has made all the difference in the world to use make up w/healthy ingredients! No more clogged pores, No More Breakouts! The Resist is my favorite PC foundation. I love how it goes on so smoothly and stays all day. Coverage is beautiful and feels like silk. I love the generous samples to help pick the right color. My only prob with this one is that it's a lot more $ (I also like All Bases Covered)

    Amended Review
    • I wanted to update my comments on the resist foundation. Now that I am applying with my fingers I am getting a quick and easy finish that is smooth and natural. It provided medium coverage and can spot cover issues.It does not emphasize my pores. The finish is smooth and semi matte. I spent a year looking for the perfect liquid/cream foundation testing all kinds of brands. The quality is very good and the price is excellent. Its a definite win for me. I really enjoy Resist.

    Velvety Finish
    • Great quality ingredient list. It has velvety feel on the skin. It does require more blending than some other foundations I have used. Best applied with fingers or a sponge to avoid splotchy appearance. I get about 6 hours wear from it. Correctly applied it gives great coverage and I really enjoy knowing it is helping my skin. I have oily combo skin so this is a cold weather foundation for me. It is a little too heavy for the humid summers where I live. Fantastic buy at this price!

    Still a "no go" second time around
    • I tried samples of this when this first came out. Light-Medium was too pale; Medium was too dark. I also found it impossible to apply with my BeautyBlender sponge. Decided to try it again, and thought things might have changed, and this time I applied it with a foundation brush, which definitely works better than a sponge. However, I still have the same shade issues as before: I'm somewhere in between Light-Medium and Medium. I also found the coverage to be heavier and obvious than I like.

    The good and the bad
    • The good: I absolutely loved the way this foundation looked on my skin. It also lasted longer than other foundations I have tried, my face looked more "glowy" and less oily than normal. The bad: I am allergic to the foundation and the skin under my eyes got itchy and swollen. I liked the look of the foundation so much that I tried it a second time hoping that it was coincidence, but it wasn't. I definitely recommend trying samples. If you're not allergic, then this is a great product.

    Very Good
    • I'm between a level 2 and 3. I may order both and mix myself because I'm so impressed with this company. I would say this has sheer coverage. I may order when my skin clears and evens out. I'm focussed on skin care right now. 4 stars because I'll have to mix but I know that it's good for my skin and the formula felt really good.

    Perfect shade, but too drying!
    • I understood that this foundation was for combination, oily skin but I wanted to try it because of the shade collection it has available. I also ordered the Sheer Matte Tinted Moisturizer. Loved the way the moisturizer left my skin feeling, but it was a tad yellow! So, I mixed the two together and created my own shade and now it's perfect! Feels smooth, and looks great now. I just wish the tinted moisturizer had a lighter shade. Then I'd be very satisfied!

    Super Foundation
    • I ordered this foundation and wanted to wait until I got some skincare products from PC but I could not wait! I just had to try it! So I did for a few days and I really like this foundation a lot. Feels so smooth and silky and very good ingredients for my skin. Thank you Paula for being truthful and honest!

    Tried it a second time!
    • I tried this foundation about a year ago and didn't like it, partly because of the color I ordered. I recently decided to try it again, and ordered a sample in the color medium. I have used the sample for about a week now and absolutely have fallen in love with this foundation. It blends beautifully, stays on all day and works well with the new Resist powder. It looks very natural, while covering well. I am so happy that I tried this product again! I just ordered a full size! Thanks PC!

    A winner!
    • I've been using Paula's Choice skin care products for years with great results. I was a loyal user of Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation though, and had not had success with Paula's foundations. I live in a humid climate so I needed a makeup that would stay all day. Last week I received my generous samples of Resist foundation. I absolutely love it! Great coverage without looking like a mask. Makes my skin look soft and natural with enough staying power that I don't have to do touch ups.

    I have dry skin
    • I bought this foundation because it offered a porcelain shade. Did not know it was for oily/combo skin. I use an underbase which contains oil.This allows the make-up to smooth on well and give a real good finish. I do not add SPF as when I do, it doesn't mix well with the foundation. It stays on all day, looking well. If it gets to dry I simply put a moisturizer on top.

    Not for me
    • This product made my skin look oily, not dewy, even with minimal moisturizer and setting powder. Major disappointment because I love PC skin care products and the price is right.

    Worth A Try
    • I added a few foundation samples onto a skin care order and I'm so glad I did. I like this foundation, particularly the great range of pale colours (can't believe I'm 3rd lightest when usually the lightest shade is too dark) & will order full size. I LOVE the generous sample, a little pot, not a foil packet. I've used it a week so far and have really tested the colour, staying power and finish in different environments. For less than $1 it's well worth giving it a go to see if it suits you.

    Mousse-like texture feels lovely!
    • I admit it...I'm a foundation junkie. If it rates well with Paula, I try it, no matter the cost. At my palest, my favorite foundation was Paula's Choice All Bases Covered in the lightest color. No other brand was light enough for me! When I did finally venture out and acquired a more mainstream hue, I moved to MAC Studio Sculpt. Now, I can't decide which I prefer, Studio Sculpt or RESIST. RESIST is just so airy in texture, I am finding myself using it the most often. Love it!

    FINALLY a light enough colour
    • SO happy that Paula finally has a porcelain foundation!!! :-) :-) :-) THANK U!!! :-) :-) It is SOOO hard to find a light enough foundation!! (And, Paula's concealer doesn't exist in "1 shade lighter than your foundation" for people as pale as I am. :-( Almost no concealers or foundations are light enough, esp ones that are good.) It can be SO annoying, being told at makeup counters or online that "our product doesn't come any lighter, because no-one is that pale; oh, except you."

    Good, but not for my oily skin
    • Great foundation! Covered well and the light/ medium matched my skin tone perfectly. I have extremely oily skin and this foundation made my skin look more oily. It would be great if Paula would come out with a version of this foundation for oily skin and for it to be more on the matte side.

    Resist smooth anti-aging foundation
    • This makes my skin feel smooth and soft. I am 67 and this foundation does not settle in fine lines and creases.It is easy to smooth out until you get that no make-up look, but flaws are easily covered with concealer on the flaws only. My skin is dry, so after moisturizing I pat a small amount of jojoba or argon oil on my skin . It absorbs immediately and my skin has that no make-up look. Please combine porcelain and fairly light for us who are pale but need a little color to look alive.

DIRECTIONS: During the day, apply a small amount after moisturizing with a Paula's Choice sunscreen rated SPF 15 or higher. Using a makeup sponge, clean fingertips, or foundation brush, blend foundation with short, downward, strokes. Layer as needed to increase amount of coverage. If desired, set and enhance your daily sun protection with Paula's Choice Healthy Finish Pressed Powder SPF 15.

Can Resist Instant Smoothing Anti-Aging Foundation be used with my regular daytime moisturizer with sunscreen?

Absolutely! In fact, we recommend doing so because this foundation doesn't contain sunscreen! This foundation works beautifully over any Paula's Choice daytime moisturizer with sunscreen, including Resist Cellular Defense Daily Moisturizer with SPF 25.

Why doesn't Resist Instant Smoothing Anti-Aging Foundation contain sunscreen?

Resist Instant Smoothing Anti-Aging Foundation is designed to complement, not replace, your daytime moisturizer with sunscreen. The formula contains a substantial amount of proven antioxidants, repairing agents, and cell-communicating ingredients that work together with your SPF-rated moisturizer to provide optimum anti-aging benefits throughout the day.

What's the difference between Resist Instant Smoothing Anti-Aging Foundation and All Bases Covered Foundation SPF 25?

The two biggest differences are that All Bases Covered foundation provides sun protection and Resist Instant Smoothing Anti-Aging Foundation contains a range of ingredients designed to complement your SPF-rated product for skin that looks and acts younger. Also, the two foundations have different finishes, with All Bases Covered offering a soft, satin-matte finish and Resist Instant Smoothing Anti-Aging Foundation offering a soft glow finish that feels matte and is ideal for those who want a more radiant complexion.

Is Resist Instant Smoothing Anti-Aging Foundation suitable for acne-prone skin?

It should work fine for almost any skin type. However, if avoiding breakouts is your chief concern or if you have seriously oily skin, consider Paula's Choice Best Face Forward Foundation SPF 25 instead. For anti-aging benefits beyond sun protection, apply Skin Balancing Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum with Retinol prior to Best Face Forward Foundation SPF 25 instead.

Is Resist Instant Smoothing Anti-Aging Foundation suitable for rosacea-affected skin?

Yes. This foundation, like all from Paula's Choice is fragrance-free. Resist Instant Smoothing Anti-Aging Foundation also contains a range of repairing and soothing ingredients to help strengthen skin's barrier and reduce redness.
