    Great for use with retinoids
    • My dermatologist prescribed Ziana, and I experienced slight peeling. This did a great job in stopping that , and also did not contribute to any further acne.

    Amazing!
    • This is by far THE BEST moisturizer I have ever used. I like to use it before I go to bed and will also use it during the day on spots on my face that I know can get dry. The first time I used it I immediately noticed how soft to the touch my skin was. Best of all, I no longer wake up with oily skin... my skin is still just as smooth in the morning. This is my holy grail moisturizer!!

    Gel Beads Off, Sits on Top of Skin
    • When I read the description of it, it sounded like the holy grail. It seems to be designed to do exactly what I need: moisturize mature acne-prone skin without causing problems, and even help with discolorations. But it doesn't work for me for two reasons: 1/ it seems to sit on top of my skin and beads or rolls off if I touch my cheek, 2/ it doesn't hydrate enough (probably because it doesn't sink in). I'm going back to my own HG, the Hydralight Moisturizer.

    decyl glucoside
    • decyl glucoside is a cleaning agent. Why it appears on 'ingredients' tab as an emulsifer? It is an error? Thank you

    Customer Service Response
    Replied on: Friday, January 02, 2015

    Hello, and thank you for the question! Decyl glucoside is a surfactant, meaning it acts as a cleanser by emulsifying oils - so it is both a cleansing agent and an emulsifier. :)

    Tighten pores but too dry
    • I have been using this product for 3 weeks and I notice that my pores have been reduced visibly, but it is too drying for my skin. When I laugh my skin feels tight and my skin have fine lines like crumpled paper now. I am thinking of combining this hydrator with another moisturiser but am not sure how I should combine them. Should I use this for night or day only and use the other moisturiser alternately with this one? Or should I use this hydrator for one week then alternate with the other?

    Misnomer
    • Call me a snark, but I believe Paula's Choice is running out of synonyms for "moisturizer". Perhaps that's why this is labeled as a hydrator; however, people with sporadic skin prone to bouts of dryness will find this won't be hydrating enough. Be that as it may, this has the perfect texture for breakout-prone, oily skin. It also has ingredients that fade inflammation from acne and even kill acne-causing bacteria (I've only seen something like that in benzoyl peroxide creams!)

    Love This Stuff!
    • I have sensitive, acne-prone, combination skin and this is the perfect night time moisturizer for me. I have issues with really dry areas (especially in the winter) and this moisturizer eliminates those dry patches leaving my skin soft in those areas and yet doesn't leave me with the slick feeling in the oily areas. I also have never broken out with this product! I use two pumps every night after the ultra-light antioxidant serum and my skin looks amazing in the morning.

    Face Pillow
    • I love this stuff. It feels like I'm wrapping my skin in bubblewrap bc of how soft & silky it feels. I use it around my eyes too & have no irritation. I'm not sure that it's actually doing anything to prevent acne or fade my scares but it does make my skin feel nice. I'll re-buy.

    WANTED TO LOVE THIS, BUT...
    • I have been using PC products for years, and have loved most of the products I've tried. When I was halfway into the bottle, I developed a sensitivity to it - my eyes burned and itched, and the rest of my face and neck itched, getting worse the longer I had it on. I called customer support, and I will be returning the product, so that is no problem. I have learned though, that more anti-aging ingredients do not work for everyone. I guess it's back to the Skin Balancing Moisture Gel for me!

    Great for combination skin
    • Started using Paula's products in September. My skin is brighter & more even, dark spots have faded, less wrinkles, & her products work well with my cystic acne. This hydrator works well for me. It doesn't make my skin feel oily, even with my combination skin. My wrinkles are less noticeable & it doesn't cause breakouts. I do find that I need to use a heavier serum around my eyes - Resist Intensive Wrinkle-Repair Retinol Serum works great.

    This is wonderful!
    • I have used the Skin Balancing system and have been happy. I've been slowly working in the Resist line as I'm now 46. I found this product to be too harsh for around my eyes, no problem, I have other moisturizers for that. Once I started using it everywhere else, I grew to like it. Never makes my face feel greasy or oily. The other day, I looked in the mirror and thought I had makeup on when I didn't! I still break-out every month, but otherwise, my skin looks fabulous because of this!

    • I noticed improvement in my skin after the first use. Light weight and silky while being incredibly moisturizing. Skin feels hydrated with no residue. It got rid of some dry patches that i had as well as balanced out oily areas.

    Nice product
    • This is a very nice moisturizer. I've used it on my face and neck/chest/back area, and while I don't think this contributed to any breakouts, I don't think this is the single answer for acne. I primarily use this on my chest, neck, and hands before bed and it keeps my skin looking smooth :)

    REMOVE my last review! GAME CHANGER product!
    • A couple week ago, I wrote a neutral review for this moisturizer. Boy, was I WRONG! It turns out it was another product (Estee Lauder serum) that was making my skin ultra shiny no matter what I used with it! I didn't want to give this up because I loved the texture and finish so much that I decided to apply it ALONE and my face has responded with joy. My skin is clearer, red marks are definitely disappearing, and any active breakout are just drying up and becoming A LOT less inflamed! LIFE SAVER

    Great for combo skin
    • I have been looking for a moisturizer I could use for my aging but still combo skin. Using a serum over my entire face is too much but this is perfect- gives enough moisture but not enough to aggravate my acne. I use with the Vit. C serum and the two work together nicely.

    Wanted to love, but too shiny and clogged my pores!
    • I really wanted to use the clear skin hydrator to hydrate and help clear up red marks and prevent blemishes.. well this thing is way to shiny and greasy looking on my combinstion-oily skin. It feels pretty silky and hydrating when FIRST applied, but after 2 hours its was a greaseball on my T-zone! I applied it on my nose area, and I think it clogged my pores as well!

    LOVE THIS PRODUCT!
    • I have sensitive skin and am a 40 year old woman still fighting breakouts and now a few wrinkles here and there. My skin has literally never looked better than it does after using this product! The tone is more even, breakouts much less frequently and go away literally overnight and the few wrinkles I had are disappearing. And the best part is my face doesn't feel dry or flaky. Miracle product! Please don't ever stop making this!

    Can't live without it
    • I've been using this moisturizer daily for about 6 months now and I'm blown away at how perfect it is for my skin. I have a VERY oily T-zone and I'm extremely prone to breakouts. This moisturizer addresses all of my concerns. It's a creamy gel that won't leave me the slightest bit greasy, yet plumps my skin up beautifully and heals my breakouts faster. I'm in my mid 20s and clear skin is my #1 goal right now, but I love knowing that I can continue using this even as my skin concerns change.

    Shiny!
    • I received the sample size of this product along with my PC order (which was great customer service, thank you), but unfortunately this only made my naturally oily, shiny skin shinier. I would not recommend this product for someone who also suffers from shiny skin (you could probably see your reflection in my face, it was that shiny). If you have dry skin though, it might still be a good product for you.

    can't use due to smell
    • I really wanted to love this moisturizer for all the great things I read about it, but it totally smells! I went through all the reviews and am wondering if I'm the only one who notices, but the samples I purchased smell like bread yeast or something similar that I can't figure out?! I was hoping it would go away but it didn't, so I ended up rewashing my face and using another lotion. Was super bummed, but glad I only bought a couple samples so am not out much money.

    Superb Night Time Moisturizer with repair benefits!
    • The Anti-Aging Clear Skin hydrator is a superb choice of PM moisturizer for those concerned with wrinkles/multiple signs of aging & breakouts. Oily skin types will appreciate the silky gel-cream texture, similar to Lauder's Advanced Night Repair eye gel, yet Paula's is more lightweight and settles onto the skin beautifully. It seemed to diminish some redness on the skin, calm irritation, hydrate and soothe. All while maintaining a beautiful formula suited for those with breakout prone skin.

    Caused some skin sensitivity!
    • After sitting on my shelf for a few months until I finished my non-PC moisturiser, I finally got started with this product. I initially loved it - it gave me all the moisture I needed that the previous one wasn't providing, and felt good on my skin. But after a few weeks I've noticed the return of milia and some red bumps that are warm to the touch. Reading the reviews I can see I'm not the only one with this sensitivity! My moisturiser hunt begins again! :(

    Great product, but the pump ....
    • I believe this is an excellent product. It substantially reduces my facial redness like no other product I've used does. This is an item I stock up on when on sale, so I may use it 6-9 months after purchase. The pump stopped working on my last bottle, however more that half of the product remained in the bottle. Customer Service recommended some upside down thumping and pumping, but it still does not work. Postal costs in Canada make returns impractical. 4 weeks later, I'm still scooping!

    Well, that's just inconvenient! Please stop the scooping and contact us so we can send you a replacement cleanser, no charge!

Detailed instructions on how/when to apply your Paula's Choice products can be found in our How to Put Together Your Own Skincare Routine article.

How is the Resist Anti-Aging Clear Skin Hydrator different from the other Paula's Choice facial moisturizers?

Resist Clear Skin Hydrator is a state-of-the-art formula specifically designed to address the advanced needs of those concerned with the frustrating combination of wrinkles and breakouts.

Resist Clear Skin  Hydrator contains a special complex of ingredients that works to repair signs of aging as it helps keep skin clear and encourage healing of discolorations (red marks) from breakouts. And because it's a moisturizer, it also provides hydration for smoother, softer, younger-looking skin.

Despite the advanced nature of this formula, it bears the formulary hallmarks of every Paula's Choice facial moisturizer. All of them are designed to supply skin with what it needs to look and feel its best.

How come Resist Anti-Aging Clear Skin Hydrator doesn't contain retinol?

Although retinol is an anti-aging superstar ingredient, it's important to keep in mind that it is not the only superstar to consider. Paula and her team developed this unique formula around the benefits of niacinamide with stabilized vitamin C and a specialized skin-clearing complex. Between these and other key ingredients such as antioxidants, skin that's showing signs of aging yet still breaking out is able to repair itself and help reduce signs of past breakouts. If you wish to add a product with retinol to your anti-aging routine, consider one of our serums (note that the Resist Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum does not contain retinol).

Do I still need to use my anti-acne products with this moisturizer?

Yes. Although we'd love it if this weren't true, the fact is that it requires more than one product to keep acne in check. Essential are a gentle, water-soluble cleanser, a beta hydroxy acid (BHA) exfoliant that contains salicylic acid, and a topical disinfectant medicated with benzoyl peroxide. Using these types of products along with Resist Clear Skin Hydrator ensures you're combining the right ingredients to manage breakouts while also helping your skin look and act younger.

I keep depressing the pump, but no product is coming out.

This product is packaged in an airless pump dispenser which utilizes a vacuum system to dispense and keep the contents fresh. Airless packaging helps to keep air and contaminants out of the product, which enhances the formula's stability and effectiveness.

When using your product for the first time, you may need to “prime” the dispenser. To prime, simply pump the dispenser slowly about 10-15 times. If the dispenser stops working at any time, simply repeat the "priming" step. Do not attempt to dismantle the package.
