About Me Beauty Conscious
Comments about RESIST Travel Kit for Normal to Oily Skin - Travel Kit:
I've been a long time Paula's Choice fan and had such high hopes for this line now that I've gotten a little older and concerned more about my aging. I loved that they had a sample kit so I could try it before commiting to the full size set and boy am I glad I did!First of all the size for the cleanser is not enough. I used about a 1/2 pea size amount each day morning and night and it only lasted 8 days - so don't count on getting a full 2 week trial out of it. I tried and tried to squeeze more out of it, but could not.Second, after using each of the products in the kit as instructed my skin quickly broke out in small red dots after only 2 days of use. I expected that maybe this was due to the change in care and a way of cleansing my skin to get new growth of healthier skin, but after finishing the 2 weeks (as best I could without cleanser for the last 1/2) my skin did not look any healthier or clearer. In addition to purchasing the trial kit I purchased the toner for this skin line and after 2 weeks of use I can't say that it has done anything to benefit my skin. In all honesty the toner truly seemed like I was just putting water on my skin. If you have sensitive skin this might be great, but for the cost I didn't feel it was beneficial and didn't seem to reduce redness or my pores. I will go back to the Skin Balancing Toner I've used for many years.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

About Me Minimalist
I use the product daily for two weeks. I saw no difference in my skin whatsoever, other than I had a massive breakout on my forehead. The face wash is nice as is the moisturizer, but overall not worth the money when I have had better results from other PC products and drug store products. Disappointed.
Service and delivery comments:
Delivery was prompt and packaged well.

Such a good idea

This travel kit is such a great idea. I wish there was a travel kit for the Skin Balancing Essentials collection.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

After striking out with drugstore products, because they either made my skin dry or caused more breakouts, I decided to increase my price point. I mean after all you do get what you pay for, right? Since this was my first time experimenting with a higher end product, I decided to go with the trial size. After doing more research I figured this line would be great for my acne prone, combination skin. I absolutely love all of the products in this kit, except the Resist Ultra-Light Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum. Since using this kit my face has cleared up extremely well. I only have a few stubborn pimples on my left cheek, but they have shrunk in size and aren't as noticeable. The dark spots have lighten after a week of use. My skin feels hydrated and even has a glow. Although I did not like the serum, I will agree that it is super light, almost watery. It does absorb fast. It just made my skin oily (maybe too much spf for me) and ultimately that's why I won't purchase the full size. My favorite products are the Daily Pore-Refining Treatment 2% BHA and Anti-Aging Clear Skin Hydrator. I believe that these 2 together are what has my skin glowing, smooth and even. I will DEFINETLY repurchase these two. I do like the cleanser, but I think I might try a different line for that. Overall, I'm pretty impressed and not as hesitant with spending more than drugstore prices for these products. They have opened me up to the brand and I'm ready to explore the other lines from PC.

Itchy face with rash all over
I got this kit after reading the rave reviews and reading about the care that the Paula's choice team take to eliminate all the rubbish from thier skin care products. I thought that this was a safe option when trying to get something to finally combat my acne (i have had this since going through puberty) and aid with the visible signs of aging that are starting to appear. I have oily skin with acne. It is not the worse acnes I have seen and can cover it well with make-up. However it is bad enough that i am not confident when going out without make-up. I also have some scarring from old acne.I have been using this routine for 2 days and instead of combating my acne, I have found my face has come up in a rash of small spots all over it and is quite itchy. It looks like heat rash that i have seen in one of my friends when I go on holiday.I am very disappointed as I had high hopes forthis product. I wonder if the team at Paula 's choice have any idea what this could be a reaction to given the discription and if they can recommend any other products to help ekth acne and ageing?

I have aging, sensitive skin "with issues," and these products have been my go-to system for over a year now. I get great results without any problems with breakouts, redness, or itching. And now I am absolutely overjoyed to see my every-day skincare regime come in these convenient travel/trial sizes! It has been the only thing missing from my love affair with Paula's Choice. Thank you! :)

Travel Sizes - Woohoo!
from Snoqualmie, WA
Love the PC Products in the Resist line and I am so happy that there is now a travel size available! I just wish that it came with the toner (hence 4 stars instead of 5) so that I can have my complete regimen with me when I travel without taking up so much space!

The trial kit is a great idea to sample the products before committing. This set left me wanting for more.Packaging: small bottles are great. However, the cleanser is hard to get out of the bottle. It would be better if it was in a tube. The daily moisturizer, on the other hand, is in a tube and it would have been more convenient in a bottle. It is so thin that it spills out of a tube. The night time moisturizer is packaged properly.Exfoliating quality: The cleanser and the treatment work very well. The cleanser is the best and does not leave the skin tight but removes all traces of makeup effectively. The exfoliator might be a bit too strong for me. I reserve to use it every other day.Moisturizers: This is a weak spot of the kit. Neither cream has the power to properly moisturize. The daytime moisturizer is light and runny. It sinks in right away - which is great, - but skin becomes dry and tight shortly after. The nighttime moisturizer is more of a gel and it also sinks right in. But it still leaves me wanting for sth else.All in all, this kit was not moisturizing enough for me.
