Simple and perfect
About Me Beauty Expert
Comments about RESIST Perfectly Balanced Cleanser - 6.4 oz:
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.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

About Me Minimalist
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

About Me Beauty Conscious
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.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Perfect for me.
A must have product
from San Jose ca
I have never wrote a review online before, but this cleanser deserves a review! I have only used it for 4 days but I see a big improvement in my skin. I have acne prone skin and had dried it out by using way too many drying products lately.. this is bringing my skin back to normal quickly.. I could go on and on.. this product is amazing!

Great for Oily Skin!
By PCOS Face
from Chesterton, IN
I have always struggled to find a face wash and skin regimen to help my extremely oily skin. I have PCOS, and have struggled with skin issues since my later teenage years. I don't know how many products I have tried (tons!), but none of them have matched this face wash. It's gentle enough to not irritate, and yet strong enough to cut through the oil and makeup from the day. It's not overly drying nor moisturizing- it's perfect. Every time I use it, my face feels clean! I started using this face wash in conjunction with a daily 2% BHA exfoliant and the PC gel moisturizer, and my face has become clearer and even my closed comedones have started disappearing. I can't tell you how much my confidence has improved because of PC products, including this face wash.
Too drying for sensitive skin
from New York
I have combination skin, sensitive that can get a bit oily in the summer but otherwise leans toward dry, and can be acne prone in the chin area. However, I found this cleanser too drying even in the summer. I went through a whole bottle because it removes makeup well pretty well but I would not repurchase.

Great for excessively oily, sensitive, aging skin
By Animal Rescue Helper
from Los Angeles, CA
I'm new to PC and had recently started using the Resist Kit for Aging and Acne prone skin. So far the product that has caught my attention is this face wash! # How I Use It- AM this is my first step- PM Followed after removing makeup with DHC oil- I use about a generous pea size each time. Note: I get the same great results in both the AM and PM# My Experience and ThoughtsThis creamy soap turns into a cushy/velvety foam that effectively loosens the grimy greasy layer caused by hours of oiliness. It rinses off cleanly and leaves the skin feeling fresh, soft, and moist.Considering that my skin is very oily (so oily that it looks like I'm wearing a layer of vaseline on my face) , I can't remember the last time I came across a face wash that left my skin feeling grease free on my oily areas with a supple and dewey finish.I'm hoping that my other skin concerns will improve overtime with this new skin regime! Also, I really appreciate that PC provides reasonably priced high-quality products that are free of animal testing < 3# My Skin Concerns (so many...)Excessive oiliness, enlarged pores, rough bumpy texture, cystic acne, black heads, white heads, fine lines and wrinkles, sun spots, scars from acne

I never write reviews but after using this product I had to do so...I have been battling adult acne since having my second child, for a good ten years. Each year it has been getting worse and have tried everything - Proactiv, Clinque, Obagi, prescription drugs and pads, Acne Free, etc. with no relief. I have been using this product for a month, and have literally been amazed. My face has cleared and I have only gotten two breakouts. I use this with the hydrator and mattifying liquid (toner cause me to breakout) and my pore size has been reduced and for once in my life I am not worried about how I am going to cover up my acne. I can go to the pool with my kids, workout in a gym, and cut down on the amount of foundation I am wearing and touching up during the day. Even my husband has noticed the difference. Many don't realize that when you suffer from acne, it dramatically affects your confidence and self-esteem. I can finally say mine is being restored thanks to Paula's Choice.

More and more I am switching completely to PC -- the products are really wonderful and the price is right. This cleanser is perfect for summer or anytime -- it gets the sweat, dirt and makeup off your face without stripping it. Follow with a PC toner and you've got it right!
