Comments about RESIST Advanced Kit for Normal to Dry Skin - Advanced Kit:
I ordered this kit 6 months ago and it has been a great intro to Paula's Choice.The cleanser is milky, no suds. I use it when my skin is feeling dry or extra sensitive. After a workout or if I am breaking out, I switch to a stronger cleanser. I will buy again--I really like it but I need to alternate it with stronger formulas.The toner is slightly humectant, it is not stripping or drying but almost feels moisturizing. Great for winter or dry skin. If you are looking to feel tight or squeaky clean, this won't do it. The AHA glycolic acid products are good. Not irritating. I will not by the 5% lotion again as I can tolerate the "weekly" 10% liquid formula just fine every few days; I will buy the 10% only next time. Side note, these products have done wonders for my dry cracked winter hands! (For what it's worth I ordered the BHA 2% a few weeks ago and it's a great addition to my routine. I alternate these products based on what I think my skin needs.)The antioxidant serum is thick and has a sort of silicone feel. It doesn't stay thick and heavy--it does sink in--but it goes on heavy. Not my favorite. I have since bought the ultra light serum and I really like it! The ultra light will definitely be great for summer and better for humid climates, while the "super" included in this kit seems better suited for dry skin/climates or winter time.The sunscreen is not my favorite. No issues with it and I will get through the tube but I will not buy again. Too much white cast if I use enough product to feel like it's actually going to cover me with the SPF.The retinol moisture barrier repair is a fine moisturizer. For night time, I wish it was heavier. It is very light. I will easily get through this tube, but will not buy this one again. Overall, it was a great purchase to buy the whole kit and I was glad to have all the steps in the routine to better learn how to layer products. Highly recommend.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Not for me
By Jeannie the Wife
I have ordered a few products from PC and was very happy with them for my sensitive skin. I have read her reviews for YEARS and have based my skin care regimen of her recommendations. I bought this kit months ago (have since stopped using it) and felt I needed to share my experience.Now that I'm in my 40's, I wanted to start thinking about anti-aging. I was eyeing this kit for almost a year as it was "not in stock" for the longest time. I bit the bullet when I saw it was restocked even though it is the most I have ever spent on a kit. Sadly, it just isn't working on my sensitive skin (I would say my skin is normal, a bit on the dryer side). In fact, I broke out so bad that I feel like I'm in my 20's again, just not the 20's skin I was hoping fore. *sigh* I've always had a slight pinkish skin tone and I've felt this has made me even redder. I really dislike the AM moisturizer, it's so thick!! Such a bummer as I had high hopes. Or maybe it's just not a good system for my sensitive skin. So keep that in mind if you are considering this system.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Anti-Aging and Sun Damage Repair
By Kathy W
from Verona, NJ
About Me Beauty Conscious
By far the best products and product line I've ever used in my 50 yrs. Late start on trying to repair the effects of the sun on my face but this product line is showing great improvement in just 3 weeks. My skin immediately felt and looked better, pampered, well-treated. I'm recommending to everyone I know!

Don't know why her products are amazing for me but its calmed my cystic acne skin. Leaves it so smooth. I have used every line imaginable and this leaves my skin feeling 10-15 years younger. Just wish I knew the secret? It's driving me crazy but oh well it works.

Outstanding products, excellent results
In my youth, and out of ignorance, I severely damaged my skin by baking in the sun. As a result I have spent the past 15 years trying to remedy/remediate the damage and address the natural aging process. I've spent thousands on laser (picosure,medlite,ipl)dermabrasion, peels,botox, restylane, Rx retina A. I've used Skinceutical products as well as Obaji, sparing no expense on my quest for decent skin. From drug store brands to the priciest dept store brands, I've tried them all. I now use only Paula's Choice Resist products as directed, as well as 1% PC retinol. My skin looks great. I'm a discriminating shopper and always do my homework when using products. PC is my holy grail for the best skin care products, bar none. I rely on reviews when buying products, so I decided to take the time to "pay it forward" with my own experiences with Paula's products. Simply put, there is nothing better out there...

BEST SKIN CARE PRODUCT
from Thousand Oaks, CA
I heard about Paula's Choice on the internet and decided to try her products. I must say her products work. I have spent lots of money on expensive skincare lines and did not get the results I wanted. After one week of using Paula's Choice I noticed how good my skin is looking. Very happy and will continue to use her products. Would recommend highly.

Best skincare I have ever used!
By Janice D
from North Las Vegas, NV
I have used many products during my 67 years. So far this is the best ever. It is easily applied and absorbes quickly. I use as directed in a.m. and p. m. Even though there are several products, they go on quickly and easily. My skin is very good, thanks to good genes. Paula's Choice has kept it great and making it even better with continued and regular application.

Very impressed so far!
from New Mexico
About Me Minimalist
I've used a lot of skin products in my 59 years,expensive and some not so expensive, but this kit is the only one I've ever felt compelled enough to leave a review for. I am so impressed with the difference I've seen in my skin in such a short amount of time. (less than two weeks to be exact.)Honestly, my skin has NEVER felt or looked better! My biggest regret is not trying it sooner! If you're hesitant about trying it, don't be. You will not be disappointed!

New user, love the product
By andrea f.
I just switched to Paula's Choice after using BioElements for more than a dozen years. I've just been using this collection for a few days and there is a visible difference in my skin. My skin feels and looks wonderful. It's soft and smooth with no irritation. Customer service was also wonderful, replacing a product that leaked during shipment.The products are all wonderful with no unpleasant odor that some unscented products can have. Would prefer a pump bottle for the toner.
