This is amazing
from The great northwest
About Me Beauty Expert
Comments about RESIST Hyaluronic Acid Booster - 0.67 oz:
This is bringing my dehydrated skin back to life. I have dry skin by nature and its sensitive. I was throwing all these anti aging products on trying to fight my age a bit. You get wrapped up in retinol, AHA, BHA. Vitamin C etc. These are all great products if you're skin can handle them and I just didn't clue in to the signs my poor skin was telling me :(( until about 2 weeks ago it hurt and burned so much after I brushed my foundation on and continued to hurt all day at work that I started to read on here about dry and dehydrated skin (I had no clue it was dehydrated)and bam the lightbulb went off. I decided then to cut everything out other than my oil and mositurizer and this little gem. I put it on last thing am and pm with my hands wet and my skin has done a complete turn around. My skin prior to this was unhappy and breaking out, feeling SO tight that I didn't have many wrinkles because it was tight I believe but it was beginning to show little lines on my cheeks and you could see a texture that foundation would just acceuntuate. My skin now is plumped and no zits and it doesn't hurt anymore it is starting to actually look a bit dewy!! WOWEE. I literally have to tell myself not to put anything else on and be patient, let my skin heal and I then will add a few things back in but not everyday for me and my sensitive skin. Great great stuff
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

No improved hydration :(
from Raleigh, NC
Bought this because I thought it would help alleviate the intense dryness that comes with taking Accutane (oral acne medication) and I did not find if helpful at all. I used it consistently 3-5x/week for almost the last two months of my course of Accutane and honestly didn't notice an improvement in hydration over using my moisturizer alone. I've now been off Accutane for 1 month and continued using the HA booster hoping maybe now that I would see improved hydration but sadly I have not seen any benefit. I've tried applying straight to skin, mixing w/ night cream and I'm sad to say I just honestly have not seen ANY benefit. It also has a slightly tacky finish/gooey finish even when mixed with other products which I'm not a fan out---if it really worked I would absolutely not care. I also feel like the packaging is lacking---there is quite a bit I'm not going to be able to get out of the jar. Given its lack of benefit and suboptimal packaging this was a pass for me and I will not be reordering.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I'm not sure...
About Me Skin Care Professional
I don't know how to feel about this product, it's okay but it didn't give me a 'wow' factor. When you put it on your skin it's ok, spreads well, sinks in well. But after that... you kinda don't feel the hydration. Which is dissappointing, oh well maybe I got worse batch. I think the price is a bit to high considering the performance that this serum provides. I've used cheaper and better hyaluronic acid serums. I think this one is different because it has some antioxidants/skin replenishing ingredients in it which is always nice, and not so common in hydrating serums.
Gave Me an Eczema-Like Rash :(
By Donna O.
from Columbus, OH
About Me Beauty Conscious
While I like the smoothing/plumping effect of the HA, this product causes me to break out in a scaly, eczema-like rash around my eyes and on my neck. At first, I didn't think it was the HA, but when I switched to the lightweight serum, the rash went away - only to return when I started the HA again. The rash is tough to get rid of - argan oil and lots of TLC around my eyes over the course of three days to resolve the issue. I am now using it sparingly, and on its own (not mixing it with an AO serum or oil), because the HA works so well otherwise. Those with sensitive skin - be aware!

I have to agree with other reviewers; the packaging is just absolute nonsense, but I can forgive that because this product is incredible. I have dry skin, and I also use a 2% BHA and a 1% retinol. I had to limit my use of these because they dried out my skin, but since adding the hyaluronic acid booster, I've been able to use my BHA morning and night as well as my retinol nightly, without any dryness or irritation. As time goes on using this product, my skin just seems to be getting better and better at holding moisture.

Please Change Packaging
from Corvallis, OR
If not for the terrible packaging, this product would get 5 stars. I bought this booster same time as C15 booster. Used same amount every day of each. I still have 1/2 bottle left of C15, but because of HA's thicker consistency, I am unable to suck any more up with dropper. That is unacceptable. Should be in a pump. For the money customer should get every last drop. Please, I beg you, put the HA in a pump. I am a long time customer and will continue being so. Thank you.

Bring back the travel size!
from NY, NY
I bought the travel size to try it out, and so far over the past two weeks it's been great. I can see the lines between my brows softening, and my skin feels great. I'm using it on alternate nights mixed into CeraVePM moisturizer (I have a lot of PC products, Olay, and CeraVe in my routine). I have two complaints--the packaging is horrible! I read all the reviews prior to purchasing and I hesitated, knowing that if I liked the product I may has issues down the road with actually using it. And at these prices it's too expensive to waste (an aside - I've noticed the products are becoming almost as expensive as the ones Paula used to point out were too expensive). My second issue is that since I bought the travel size, about two weeks ago, suddenly it's no longer available. I love the travel sizes available as I travel a lot, and with the airline regulations I can still keep up with my regular routine thanks to being able to have the targeted products in travel sizes. It also takes up a lot less room in my luggage. Please, please please fix the dropper issue, and bring back the travel size!

Great Example of the Power of Hyaluronic Acid
By Scott in Central Ohio
from Worthington (just north of Columbus)
I've been using this Booster since it was introduced, and have not been dissapointed. In fact, I now consider it an essential part of my daily routine (along witht the C-15 and the Clinical Retinol).Before I purchased the hyaluronic acid booster I had a tiny bit of fine lines around the corners of my eyes, as well as the '11' marks between my brows. The Clinical Retinol 1% did a terrific job of getting rid of the deeper wrinkles that had just started to appear, as well as smoothing my overall facial texture. however, the fine lines remained. Once I got my greedy little hands on this stuff, I mixed it with the two Resist serums (I use the ligher one during the day, the 'classic' version at night), I noticed an immediate improvement: the fine lines 'plumped' away!Now I use it daily, often by itself, and usually twice. I also will sometimes mix it with a few of the other boosters for a sort of 'super boost', if you will. It makes such a quick and obvious difference that I now consider it as important as my dialy suncreen application.One of the best of the 'new era' skin care additions to the entire PC line.

There is a clear, plastic fitting in the bottle. Remove it.
from Minneapolis, MN
About Me Minimalist
I am unsure why there are negative reviews about the packaging. There are two pieces to remove when opening for the first time: a foil top on the bottle and a clear plastic fitting in the mouth of the bottle. My stopper topped seats fully when screwed on. No problems handling this product. Works awesome on flaky winter skin. Thanks!

About the packaging...
from Boston, MA
I'm ordering my second bottle of this, I do like it and think it's made a difference on my dry areas. I mix a drop with my serum (a Beautypedia 5-star "best" but not PC) and use daily.I did have to email customer service when I, too, had trouble with the dropper fitting the bottle. Turns out I was supposed to push the dropper in without twisting to break some kind of seal, and after that I had no trouble twisting it closed. Too bad they don't add that little tidbit to the instructions for use...
