Comments about RESIST Hyaluronic Acid Booster - 0.67 oz:
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...
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

One of the best things I've done for my skin
from Grand Rapids, MI
I have oily skin that needs moisture, along with some dry patches around my mouth. I've added a drop or two of this hyaluronic acid booster to my moisturizer day and night over the last 6 months, and it makes my skin feel wonderful. No more dry patches. It feels soft, and smooth and has gotten rid of some breakouts I was having around my moth due to to irritation from dryness. I have had good luck with the dropper, however there is still a decent amount of product left after the dropper stops picking it up in the bottom of the bottle. I've come up with a solution that works well for me, and gets about 2-3 weeks more of product out of the bottle until it is emtpty. When I open the bottle for the first time, I keep the screw on lid that comes on it in my medicine cabinet. When the dropper won't pick up anymore product I swap the dropper out for the screw on lid and store it upside down. Since it's a gel-ish consistency it doesn't pour out when you open the lid. I take the lid off and lightly tap it on my finger, and 1-2 drops worth comes out. I do this for a good 2-3 weeks before it empties completely. I use most of the resist line from PC, and this is something I hope to never go without.
Made me breakout
from Riverside, CA
My skin always gets really dry in the winter so I was excited to try the Hyaluronic Acid Booster. I loved the texture and it left my skin feeling hydrated immediately after use. I used it on its own a couple of times but I usually just mixed a few drops with my serum.However, after using it daily for a few weeks I noticed my skin started breaking out where I'd never had problems before. The hyaluronic acid was the only change I'd made to my skincare routine and since I've been using it less and less the breakouts are starting to improve but I still have quite a few bumps and spots left.My skin is still dry but I'm worried that heavy moisturizers will make the breakouts worse. So for the time being I'm still stuck with dry skin and now acne clusters that kind of resemble a rash. I feel like the hyaluronic acid booster has caused a lot more stress than it's worth.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Greatness in a bottle!
I love this product so much that I came back to write a second review. It is so fabulous and makes me look great!! Bc it's winter in CT, I pat this on after moisturizing, focusing on undereye area. My skin stays noticeably hydrated through the day. My neck is beginning to get that mid-age crepeiness, and I love how it soothes much of that away. No more dry patches either. For me, this feels like a miracle product. Terrific booster and I highly recommend it. I will say the texture takes getting used to, but it's so, so worth it! Just love this product!!
Essential for me...
About Me Minimalist
I have insanely sensitive, combination, acne prone skin. Oil free moisturizers (sorry, Paula, but I react badly to yours) don't provide quite enough, but adding this booster provides just what I need.I don't really understand the negative comments about the packaging. It is a bit difficult to get the last few drops out of the bottle, but I've never had an issue with the dropper (and I've gone through several bottles at this point).

While it took several minutes to finally close the dropper correctly after the first time I used it, it's worked like a charm ever since. I first used a sample and my skin felt firmed and smooth. I've tried many products over the years, and Paula's Choice is the only one I've every FINISHED and purchased again and again and again because of the quality and performance for my skin (and my family's for that matter). Fumbling with the lid for several minutes is totally worth the results on my skin with this booster.

Terrible packaging, detracts from product quality
Having just read a selection of other reviews, I'm going to make a concerted effort to use this product more as I think it will help my aging, increasingly dry skin. But the packaging is so cumbersome and dysfunctional that I don't even want to deal with it. The top never closes correctly and the dropper doesn't work, which means I have to swipe it around the bottle to collect product and then wipe it onto my hands in order to get the small amount I need for an application. I shudder to think how much of the booster will be inaccessible to me once more than half of it has been used. Packaging needs an major overhaul.

About Me Skin Care Professional
I use this with my serum.Things that are great about it: very moisturizing.Things that aren't so great about it: majority of this formula is water, glycerin, and yeast extract - all very good moisturizing ingredients, but I would've probably given this product a more honest name.

COMME CI, COMME CA (LIKE THIS, LIKE THAT)
By RICHARD THE SECOND
from PHILADELPHIA, PA
THIS PRODUCT HAS IT'S GOOD POINTS AND BAD POINTS. FIRST THE DROPPER IS VERY DIFFICULT TO CLOSE EVENLY, BUT WE KNOW THAT ALREADY FROM ALL THE REVIEWS. THE PRODUCT ITSELF IS A CLEAR, THICK GEL ALMOST LIKE ALOE GEL WHICH I LOVE. HOWEVER I THINK MY PROBLEM WAS I USED THE GEL ALONE AND PUT TOO MUCH ON MY SKIN. IT ACTUALLY FEELS VERY DRYING THAT WAY, ESPECIALLY AS YOU GET OLDER. I THINK THE BETTER OPTION AND WAY CHEAPER OPTION WOULD BE TO ONLY USE 2 OR 3 DROPS OF THIS MIXED WITH A MOISTURIZER USED THAT WAY IT WOULD BE MORE ECONOMICAL, LAST LONGER AND KEEP SKIN BETTER MOISTURIED.
