    unhappy with new formula
    • I am disappointed that this formula was altered. I loved it for my face and will not be buying it now for either face or hands. I noticed that it has less zinc oxide in the new formula. It also is missing licorice, chamomilla flower extract, algae extract, and aloe juice which are wonderful ingredients for the skin.

    Not Great
    • Tried a sample of this and was not impressed. The formula is too light and not hydrating enough. Kind of worthless really when I already use the body lotion then the sunblock.

    • I used to apply the hand cream on my face because it was quickly absorbed with no greasy feeling. So I was looking forward to trying this new formula but I prefer the previous one. My face looks white and greasy, not a pretty sight. Not a winner for me !

    • I really wanted to love this new hand cream but after using it for a week my hands have broken out in a rash (eczema) and the backs of them are very itchy. There is something in the new formulation that my skin can't tolerate. It is very moisturizing and feels good on the skin otherwise.

    Sorry you changed it
    • I love Paula's products, but I'm sorry you changed this formula. I thought the original formula made a great sunscreen/moisturizer for face, neck and chest. Now it's just too greasy. I probably will not use this on my hands because I think it's a little too pricey for something that has to be reapplied so often.

    Thank you so much for your feedback. We are very sorry to hear that this product did not work out for you. If you miss the old formula please check out our Hydralight Shine-Free SPF 30 which is the exact same product that has been transitioned to our Hydralight line for normal to oily skin.

    Not good
    • I received a sample of this in my last order of other products. This was so greasy and odd that I honestly had to wash it off my hands within 5 minutes of wearing it. The texture is strange, the smell is strange, and it felt gross on my skin. I would not purchase this product, nor recommend it.

    Not for me
    • I tried a sample packet and found the cream to be very greasy, cast a silvery shine to my hands and made my wrinkles and veins show up more than usual. I'm not a young person so this cream may be really good for a younger person who has young looking hands.

    RESIST Ultimate Anti-Aging Hand Cream SPF 30
    • This is a rich, creamy moisturizer without lingering fragrance. The SPF is great. Unfortunately, I dislike the greasy afterfeel -- there are worse offenders out there, but I can't stand any type of oily, sticky residue on my palms and hands. Another issue is the price and the amount of product. $13 is a LOT for a 1.7 oz, hand cream IMHO, especially one that must be applied generously in order to benefit from the sunscreen. There are other, more affordable options almost or just as good

    Mixed bag.
    • Pros: well-formulated (of course!), moisturizing, no white cast (like predecessor). For very dry hands, this does provide substantial moisture. Cons: shiny finish that, contrary to claims, IS a little greasy (absorbs very slowly); the greasiness tends to draw attention to wrinkly hands. I wish the new formula were more of a hybrid of the one it replaced: matte finish, but still moisturizing. This incarnation lives up to most of its claims, and it's a vast improvement for alleviating dry hands.

    Great cream BUT Misleading description
    • This hand cream is amazing - and a huge improvement over the last one. However, the description is misleading. It states "....has gentle, broad-spectrum mineral sunscreen ingredients" .... "while the pure mineral sunscreen ingredients shield skin " although the vast majority of the sunscreen ingredients in this cream are in fact chemical ones and not indeed that gentle. It would not be suitable for someone experiencing eczema or psoriasis on their hands.

DIRECTIONS: Apply liberally to clean, dry hands every morning and as needed throughout the day.

This hand cream is more moisturizing than the original formula. What changed?

It's a new formula! We listened to customer feedback and transitioned the original Resist Ultimate Anti-Aging Hand Cream SPF 30 formula to our Hydralight line for normal to oily skin.

Lots of customers told us that they loved the former Resist hand cream as a facial moisturizer, but it wasn't moisturizing enough for their hands. Therefore, we now have a more emollient hand cream that still provides reliable broad-spectrum sun (and brown spot) protection and contains antioxidants to defend against signs of aging. We hope you agree this was a change for the better!

How often should I apply Resist Ultimate Anti-Aging Hand Cream SPF 30?

As often as needed to maintain protection. Apply liberally each morning and consider taking it with you for use when you're away from home and wash your hands and/or perspire heavily. After the first application each day, you can apply an extra dab to the tops of your hands after washing them and massage in. This not only ensures ongoing sun (and brown spot) protection but also helps moisturize your hands after washing so they don't become dry again.
