Love The Product - Hate the Packaging
By Anna the Esthy Student

About Me Skin Care Professional
Comments about RESIST Intensive Repair Cream - 1.7 oz:
I love this product, however the "hard" plastic jar it's placed in, keeps me from repurchasing. I truly believe in utilizing every last drop of each product I buy. I am not able to cut this bottle open and scoop out the remaining 15% of the product, like I'm able to with other "soft" bottle products from PC. I am having my husband drill into the bottom, so that I can get the remaining out, which is probably 4-5 more days worth, however I wish I didn't have to get so invasive with getting my full monies worth of product.I love PC and I will always use their products on my skin, it's just these hard plastic bottles I feel doesn't do the purchase justice. It is a great product though.

Great glow, hate the packaging!
from Miami, FL
About Me Beauty Expert
I have been using the RESIST Barrier Repair Moisturizer with Retinol for years, but a few months ago it was out of stock so I decided to try this one instead. I love it so much! I apply it every evening with a couple of drops of the Resist Moisture Renewal Oil Booster for extra slip. I wake up with such youthful, glowy skin without it looking greasy (and I live in extra humid Florida!). I would give this 5 starts but for the packaging. I hate the pump, it gets stuck and I miss out on product. Also the blue sticker started to peel off and a bunch of tiny little blue pieces get mixed in with the cream. Please fix this bottle!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

So much moisture!
I had been using the Resist Barrier Repair Moisturizer with Retinol cream originally for years. However, when I went to order it a few months ago it was out-of-stock so I decided to try this product instead. OMGI like it even better! It is thick but not heavy. I use it every night & wake up with such a glow. The only thing I hate is the packaging. The pump keeps getting stuck & the blue label has started to come off little by little, so I end up with a dozen tiny pieces of blue paper mixed into the cream. Please fix this, because this product is awesome!

Unfortunately this did not work for me
from San Francisco
About Me Beauty Conscious
Unfortunately this cream really did not work well for me. I don't know if maybe I am just an anomaly cause I am allergic to a lot of things (nose, food,skin). I have super sensitive skin and also eczema. I don't have bad eczema, but it does flare up if something irritates my skin like soap on a cut, etc. I have been using aquaphor up to this point on my face and was looking for something a bit more elegant. I did not find it very moisturizing and my skin felt taute pretty soon after application. I also purchased the 1% retinol and started using it every 2-3 days on my face and neck. After about half a week of use, my skin reacted horribly to a combination of both products. My neck developed hives and unfortunately a bad itch as my eczema flared up. My face felt like it was burning and I had to wash off the product right away on my face and neck.I feel like it may just be that my skin is super sensitive and not the fault of the product. I will try to give this and the retinol one more week and possibly return it nothing improves.If you have super sensitive skin, I would definitely not recommend this cream at all. The retinol cream...maybe go super slowly and start by mixing it with a few things at first.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Be careful if you have very dry, sensitive skin.

This is such an incredible night cream for people with dry skin! Put this on before you go to bed and you will wake up with plump, hydrated skin! Its amazing just how well this stuff works. Its better than the much more expensive night cream I was using.Completely blown away by how good this night cream is. Worth every single penny!

Does it work? Not sure
By Canadian Cate
from London, Canada
About Me Minimalist
I used this product every night after cleansing. Has it helped with fine lines/general look of "ageing"? Kind of. I think? If it has, not enough to really wow me. Meanwhile, something in this is pretty hard for skin to adapt to, or at least mine. I don't think it's the retinol (because I love other PC products with retinol, such as the skin recovery line, which I'm pretty sure has it?)... maybe just how rich/heavy it is. Either way, I went like, two years without a single pimple (thanks to PC products in general, which I LOVE!), but had about one a week using this stuff. I kept at it, thinking my skin just needed time to adapt to the new product. But now that I'm finally near the end of the bottle, I most definitely won't repurchase. It's worth noting that I used this throughout summer (which is gross, hot, and crazy humid where I live), so perhaps this would be an excellent choice for winter or a dryer climate. But for sweaty weather (which often necessitates sunscreen too, of course), it's just too much product sitting on my face = breakouts. Now this is still a HUGE cut above anything non-PC, in my opinion, but I would never pick it over the Skin Recovery serum or the Moisture Boost Cream. I'd probably recommend this to a friend that lived in the Sahara; otherwise no. :)

Great product, tricky packaging
from Atlanta, GA
Love the product - nice hydration without being too heavy, absorbs well! I'm also new to retinol and haven't had any skin irritation.Works really nicely with the daily and weekly AHA and the Resist Super Antioxidant Serum. I've been using PC for two weeks and like what I'm seeing in the mirror.I agree with others who have commented on the packaging. The pump mechanism on mine doesn't work properly, and from the start I've had to pump 50+ times (not a typo, 50) to get enough product out. Would give it five stars, but I'm cross about the packaging.

By Sun Damaged Dame
from Orange County, CA
By far my favorite moisturizer I've ever used. It performs exactly as advertised. The formula is rich but absorbs quickly without feeling greasy. I use it as a night cream and wake up with refreshed, bouncy, calm skin. After only 6 weeks of use, I have already seen a noticeable difference in my skin's texture and tone. It is especially helpful in dealing with sun damage on my face/neck. Great ingredients and great results. I gave this product 4 of 5 total stars for two reasons: the packaging and the smell. As others have mentioned, it can be difficult to gauge when you are running low on the product, and you only realize you're out when you're out. Packaging with some kind of indication on the product level would be ideal. The smell is not terrible, but it isn't pleasant, either. I think that I may especially dislike the smell given that I use it directly after I shower and before falling asleep (I just want to smell nice!). I'm thankful PC does not add unnecessary ingredients such as scents to their products, but this might be a product that could benefit from some kind of scent... On the whole, this product delivers what it boasts and is a wonderful addition to my routine. I will gladly purchase again and again.

A must buy if you live in cold weather!
from Chicago, IL
This is the BEST product I have used! When you live in a cold climate, my sensitive skin suffers. I have tried many, many products and finally found one that works!! This works wonderful as an eye cream, but I love to use it as an occasional all over night moisturizer when my skin needs it. It's the best product to bring dry skin relief especially during zero temperatures. I've seen a big difference in my skin and fine lines too. Thank you Paula!

I have to admit this cream was a bit heavy for my face, BUT it is perfect for my neck and décolletage -- the crepey area. This cream along with the Retitnol Treatment has taken, at least, 10 years off of my neck area. I use this cream from the bottom of my chin down to my bra on a daily basis and if needed, I add the sunscreen moisturizer on top of it. (I do live in the desert, after all). I know women who have spent thousand$ for the same results. Thank you Paula's Choice
