Great for rosacea skin
from New York, NY
About Me Budget Buyer
Comments about RESIST Hydrating Cleanser - 6.4 oz:
I have mild rosacea and the most frustrating part about it is that it has changed my skin texture, so that I always feel like there's a dry layer of skin cells on my face. I like the clean feel that facial scrubs give me, but they certainly aren't great for the rosacea. This cleanser is gentle, but still makes my skin feel both clean and soft- more like what it was before the rosacea kicked in.I agree it's not ideal for makeup removal, but as I don't often wear makeup I just use a makeup remover first on those days. For those who regularly wear makeup and want a quick bedtime routine, maybe another cleanser would be a better option, but this really tames the scaly feel I often have on my face, so I'm very satisfied with it.

Skin doesn't feel stripped after use!
About Me Brand Buyer
I use this cleanser twice a day, once in the morning after I workout and again at night before I go to bed. I've used many different (drugstore) cleansers in my lifetime, and even the ones with four stars on Beautypedia that are made for dry skin have always left me with tight-feeling, irritated skin. My skin is really sensitive, so even the most gentle cleansers will leave me with red patches on my face. It is a little pricey, but this cleanser is very large in size! My skin does not feel stripped of anything after I use this cleanser, which is probably the biggest surprise for me. I don't wear any makeup on my skin, and I always remove my eye makeup seperately, so I can't testify to how well this works at removing makeup.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

A big fault of this is that it doesn't remove make up and you will need to use two pumps to really get things off. I use a wash cloth on top of this cleanser and taking up make up especially waterproof mascara/eyeliner is hard. For everything else it's ok, you can use another product that's cheaper and more substantive. I've stopped using it - I also don't know if it really does make the other retinol products work better. Will not purchase in the future.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Love the pump on this cleansing product.
from Independence, Ky.
Love the pump on this cleanser. I think there should be pumps on all the cleansers. Maybe have refill bottles in larger sizes to refill the smaller bottle with the pump.

My Top Favorite!
By S. K. Brown
from Worthington (Columbus), Ohio
This was the first cleanser I tried from PC, and it remains my favorite. It's effective for both morning 'basic start' cleaning and as the end-of-day deep cleanser (if there is such a thing). I'm a guy, and I don't usually wear makeup, but I have a number of friends who do, including two who perform on stage and use the heavy duty stage makeup, and all love this for its gentleness as well as effectiveness. As an FYI, lather has nothing to do with cleansing ability; it's a cosmetic additive that soap manufacturers added decades ago, when advertisers convinced folk that suds did the cleaning. Hopefully PC with address this issue in the future. Anyway, this cleans, is a creamy set up for shaving, and rinses easily. I've tried all of Paula's cleansers and find they are all terrific. None has stripped my combo skin, nor left residue or caused a reaction. However, as I don't have a preference for gel vs cream vs whatever, this is my number one favorite. Women AND men can't go wrong with this.

Not For Everyone
This cleanser is kind of like the non-lathering shampoos/cleansing conditioners for hair, you will probably either love it or hate it.This does not really remove makeup, so if you are ok with using a makeup remover first, then this does an ok job of cleaning the skin. But, just ok, not great.It is a pretty good morning cleanser, when my face is basically clean, but I need to gently get rid of the previous nights moisturizer. But even then, I wouldn't use it every day, because there is NO LATHER and my face just never feels clean after using this.This is certainly worth trying for someone with very sensitive skin or who absolutely never gets blackheads or breakouts ever. However, for me it was a bust and I ended up throwing it out after a year of only using it a few times.

I find this product does everything in a cleanser except it does not remove make-up all that well. I love the smell of this product. However, I do wish it came in a bigger size.

I'm 35 and have very dry and sensitive skin. I prefer a foaming cleanser if must be a mental thing. This is very creamy so I removed with a wash cloth which is not ideal for sensitive skin. I massaged it in circular motions. It did an average job at removing make up such as my mineral foundation. It did not remove eyeliner or mascara as well. My sensitive face did get red after use but it resolved within 10-15 min, so then I used toner etc. It is one of the more gentle cleansers I have tried and I'm a brand name buyer. I am satisfied with this product but I'm not wow'ed. It's not a miracle worker but it's sufficient.

I love this product as a morning cleanser. It has a thick, creamy texture and a mild scent. I have VERY acne-prone skin, and have a stringent, medicated nightly routine that I will never get away from. That routine can leave my skin dry, so a morning routine that cleans and rehydrates is very important. This also does a great job removing any excess eye make-up that lingers from the night before. It's so gentle I don't have to use extreme caution around the eye area. Truly appreciate what this cleanser does for my skin.

I have been using this products for about two years or more and this has been the best for my skin. My skin is a extremely sensitive one mixed with rosacea, and I could not try any other cleansing product on my face than fragrance free soaps. Since I am using it I have experienced how my skin has been rejuvenated. Since the first use I could immediately notice how redness disappeared from my face after using it. Since then, I cannot use other product than this!!!
