About Me Beauty Conscious
Comments about RESIST Barrier Repair Moisturizer with Retinol - 1.7 oz:
I have terribly oily and scarred acne prone skin and never found a moisturizer that didn't break me out. I love this because it absorbs fast. Every morning my skin looks nice. My deep lines on my forehead and between my eyes have filled in noticeable. I'm using a few of paulas products bha and ahas and everything is meshing well.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Too dry for my skin, My skin started break..
from New York
About Me Minimalist
I normally like paulaschoice's all products but I don't think I will purchase this moisturizer again. After I used this moisturizer over a month, my skin turn into a little dry, and sometimes breaks. First 1 week- I could feel it my skin is noticeably dry. Therefore, I used Paulaschoice C-serum under the moisturizer. The product itself is very light and smooth when you put it on, but it also dries very quickly too. If you like light feeling moisturizer, you will like this product. But with out using any serum, this product itself doesn't moisturize skin very well. After 3 weeks, I ran out a sample C-serum so I used BHA 2%+ this moisturizer for day time, BHA 2%+ hydrating mask for night time. Right now my skin is breaking and I think its because my skin has been too dry. My skin used to be very sensitive and oily many years ago, but since I changed my skin care to Paulas choice and cut off all the serums and creams, my skin turn in to normal- and a little dry. I think I'm going back to my old line which is Paulas choice cleanser, toner- BHA 2% ,other moisturizer that I've been using for 3 years and Paulas sleeping mask. It was perfectly fine before.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

When, oh when, will this be back in stock? It's my favorite and it's been weeks!!! I'm using the Resist Intensive Repair cream in place and while it's a decent substitute, it's too heavy on my skin, especially with temps and humidity increasing. Please tell me it's coming back soon.

About Me Beauty Expert, Skin Care Professional
I've always had dry skin that I slathered with oils or heavy creams. I have been so impressed and happy with how well this moisturizes-it's not at all heavy, absorbs very quickly, and my skin looks wonderful. Love not having a greasy face and beautifully moisturized skin.

A must in any woman's daily routine!
By Julie R.
from Houston, TX
I use this in the morning and I add the Resist Hyaluronic Acid Booster, and also use Neutrogena Ultra Sheer® Dry-Touch Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 55. My skin has never looked better! I am 37 about to be 38 and people don't believe it. I have a gf who is 29 and is complaining she is getting wrinkles on her forehead, crows feet, and dark spots. She then looks at me and says "and you have none of those!". Told her about Paula's Choice and what I used. The only thing is if you do have combination skin but it is dry where you live (especially in the winter) I would up your sunscreen to something a little more creamier. It tends to dry out my face if I don't. But it's such a little complaint I don't even count it as a complaint!

nice moisturizer without too much silion
I have a milia prone skin, can't use lotions that contain too much silicone( Cyclomethicone, Dimethicone, etc.) This is one of the few PC's products that doesn't have silicon at the top of the ingredient list.
Favorite moisturizer ever
By Nature Lover
from Southern California
This is my favorite PC product. The consistency of this moisturizer is absolutely elegant and that is compared with many very expensive moisturizers I have purchased over the years. I have very sensitive skin that tends to be dry but this is that Goldilocks consistency that moisturizes very effectively without ever feeling greasy or heavy. Knowing it is an effective night time treatment with retinol as well just makes it even better. I will ALWAYS need this moisturizer!

Not great on acne prone skin
Added this into my night routine three different times (for one week periods) and it broke my skin out every time. For me, it left my skin feeling almost greasy but wasn't moisturizing enough and my skin tried to overcompensate. Wouldn't recommend for acne prone skin.

I bought this for use as a daily moisturizer for my mostly dry skin. I like it, but don't love it. Sometimes I need to use double the product to make my skin feel really moisturized (and that's after using a serum). For the money, I prefer the Resist intensive repair cream.

I have continued to buy this product for over 5 years
from Columbus, OH
I would have given this product 5 stars if it weren't for the pump to release the moisturizer. I have to bang it on the counter and then shake it upside down to get the product out. I called and this is what they suggested I do. I hope you return to the original pump.
