Comments about RESIST Barrier Repair Moisturizer with Retinol - 1.7 oz:
This is the best night time moisturizer I have ever used and I've tried a lot. I started Paula's Choice by using 2% BHA liquid which I thought was making my skin look really good. So, I ordered the Moisture Barrier Repair and started using nightly and I was blown away. My skin looks so much better and makeup goes on next day so much nicer. It does have a low dose retinol which I think is key along with all the great ingredients. I had roughness and small bumps on some of my face and this seems to really help with that even more than the BHA. I am amazed and very happy! Will continue to buy as long as she sells it.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I've ordered samples of this product several times over the years hoping to get different results, but unfortuantely, this is not for me. I don't know what ingredient in here my skin disagrees with, but it results in lots of cystic acne and irritated skin the next day. I wanted to love it based on the description because it sounds like something that would greatly benefit me (30's, acne prone, uneven skin tone). I tried it more than once to elimintate the possibility that adverse skin results the first time weren't due to another random variable, like hormones or weather. But each time I broke out in major cystic acne (of the bigger nodular variety that I don't normally get). That and a burning feel with flaky skin. It's not the retinol, I've used much other retinol products before without this happening. I really wish I knew which ingredient was causing this so I can avoid it in the future.This is really the only Paula's Choice product that I've had such an adverse reaction to though.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I have to say that this moisturizer is the ICING on the top to my skin care routine. The other paula's choice products I've been using have made the texture of my skin change dramatically but this just over did it!! My skin is like a baby's bottom when I use this. I mostly use it as a night cream and I wake up glowing. The only down side is that it does leave your face a bit shiny but thats why I only use it at nightLOVE LOVE!!

Although my skin is more on the oily side, I like to use this moisturizer every so often and on days that I am more dry. It is such a nice moisturizer for smoothing fine lines and evening out my skin. And since I have previously used prescription tretinoin (a retinoid) with good results, I wanted to keep using a product with some retinol in it. So this is a great sort of 2-in-1 product!

I have now been using the Resist line for five years. When I turned 50, I was seeing some not-so-lovely changes in my skin: redness, wrinkles, and weird texture. I had always had sensitive skin. I jumped right in, buying cleanser, toner, daily exfoliant (weekly one usually twice a week), serum in the dark blue tube, and this moisturizer (sunscreen in the day, and now usually skip this moisturizer). My skin was almost instantly better. Over time, it's become quite good for my age and the abuse I gave it when I was younger.This is the one thing I could not do without ever. It is such an elegant cream. My face feels instantly refreshed and soothed, and even though the cream soaks right in, I can always tell that it's there. My skin is so much better with it!I get lazy from time to time and use something else on my face and within days can tell the difference. My skin becomes dull and kind of drab looking. So there you have it. I love all of the products I've got, but this is hands-down my favorite.

Great product, but there are better values available

I used a whole bottle of this moisturizer and loved every moment of it! I highly recommend it for dry skin as a nighttime moisturizer. It is nourishing without being greasy or thick, and absorbs very quickly. It layers beautifully over all the exfoliants I've used (I've only tried Paula's Choices ones) and also over or under serums.Because of the high price tag, I currently use a dermatologist-recommended drugstore alternative that has anti-aging ingredients such as niacinamide and sodium hyaluronate as well. I find it works just as well. If money is no object, this is a lovely nighttime moisturizer to try! If you're pinching pennies, this is one you can easily substitute with the drugstore one.
Will buy again

I apply this before bed, and I feel that overnight my face reaps the benefits. In the morning my skin is visibly restored.

Best product I've found!

About Me Always Searching, Beauty Conscious, Minimalist
I was lucky to be given this product as a tester(on another site). I've tried many luxury products to no avail. This truly is an all-in-one. I saw a difference from the first use. I had an instant glow! I recommend trying this product. Try a sample first. I'm hooked and I'm sticking to this amazing product! Thank you, Paula's Choice.

PC4Men Night Time Facial Moisturizer is exactly the same!!
from Calgary, AB
About Me Beauty Conscious, Internet Beauty Guru
Got the PC4Men Night Time Facial Moisturizer as this has been out of stock for ages. It's exactly the same ladies so if you are missing this as much as I was go get the mens one.Review:This is by far my favourite moisturizer, during the winter I use it at night with my fav Resist serum and in the summer it becomes my day cream. I have or should say I had very dry skin but using this discovered it was dehydrated not dry so it's actually restored my skins natural balance which no other moisturizer has been able to do. I also have rosacea and this has been fantastic and calming it and keeping the red at bay. I'm never going to be without this in my arsenal and hope it comes back soon so I can buy it all up :P
