I Had To Review This!
About Me Brand Buyer
Comments about RESIST Perfectly Balanced Cleanser - 6.4 oz:
Never would I think I'd be so enthused about a cleanser. I had to write a review. I'm a huge Paula's Choice fan. I have normal to dry skin however I didn't want to buy a cleaners made for dry skin because I always find that it doesn't take off my make up. I hoped that this would be somewhere in the middle. This is the butter of all cleansers. It feels so luxurious on the skin but I come out with nearly all of my eye make up removed after washing my face at night. I use this in the morning and at night and I do not have dry skin from over-washing.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

About Me Budget Buyer
Let me start by saying I was turned on to PC about 8-9 years ago looking for a cleanser and moisturizer that were effective and budget friendly. Through that time, I have used several of Paula's cleansers. I recently landed on trying something new for my aging skin (I'm 44). I already had success with products in the Resist line so I figured I'd try this cleanser. I love it. Truly. I've used cleansers twice the price with less than stellar results. This one does what it needs to. I end up with cleansed skin that never feels taught, stripped or overly squeaky clean to the point of dryness. I feel cleansed, but my skin remains soft and supple. I am neither oily nor dry anymore, but am prone to sensitivity and breakouts. It's nice to know this will remove most my makeup, with the exception of waterproof mascara. When I'm wearing full coverage makeup, I will cleanse my face twice to be sure to remove all traces of makeup, mostly because I hate using a remover. I use twice a day, and even on nights when I'm exhausted and skip moisturizer (yes it happens), I still wake up without dried out skin. It's almost as if this has a protective layer whereas other cleansers out there feel like I washed my face with bar soap or worse, I end up with a funky residue like I'd used greasy cold cream. This is the happy medium! I never let myself run out of this cleanser! Oh on another note, I tried PC Resist cleanser for normal to dry in the light blue bottle. It was ok. It didn't feel as luxurious in texture and I felt it was less effective at removing makeup. I'll be sticking to this dark blue bottle formula instead.

About Me Beauty Conscious
I started getting this about 6 months ago, after it was suggested to me by a friend. I honestly thought I would just try it out and move on ... but my skin has loved it (seriously -- little to no breakouts since I've started using this)! It has a mild, milky smell that I love. I noticed some people say it doesn't remove makeup well -- not true, for me, anyway. Two pumps takes it all off, including my mascara, and I use a medium coverage foundation and concealer, so I'm not sure what products wouldn't come off with this. Very happy with this product and I will continue to use.
Service and delivery comments:
Delivery is very fast. I've been impressed every time I order.

Simple and perfect
About Me Beauty Expert
I looked for a simple, lightweight, non-irritating cleanser for SO LONG - and finally found the perfect one for me. I wanted something simple, as I already have plenty AHAs and BHAs and etc. in my serums and oils. This cleanser does what it says- CLEANSES! It gets all my makeup off as well as dirt and oil, and keeps my sensitive combo skin moisturized without being greasy, and squeaky clean without being drying. This is the perfect basic cleanser- and it lives up to it's claims! I can see myself using this cleanser for the entire foreseeable future.
from Ottawa, ON
I am very happy with how it washes. First time my skin doesnt feel dry after being washed. The only small inconvenience is that the drop on the tip of dispenser dries out and needs to be removed regularly.

Not a Favorite, Unfortunately
By Quinton A
from Murray, KY
Unfortunately, this just didn't do it for me. It wasn't bad and didn't irritate my skin, but I didn't see a huge difference in the texture, tone, or oiliness of my skin. I also still had a few minor breakouts (which in assuming were not caused by the cleanser, but it didn't prevent then either). I plan to try another Paula's Choice product even though I wasn't too crazy about my first purchase. This brand was recommended by Thrift Thicke, so I'm not gonna give up yet.
