Ratings & Reviews

No irritation!

5

I've tried a lot of retinol products and hated them all! They irritated my skin, my cheeks would be red and flaky and I would just end up tossing the product. This is a fantastic product! It moisturizes my dehydrated dry/ combination skin without feeling heavy. It absorbs nicely and leaves my skin looking soft and plump. My skin is looking soft, clear, even tone, hydrated and just more youthful overall. My makeup goes on smoothly and I don't even need an eye cream anymore. This smooths out my dry under eye skin and my concealer applies nicely.

I have only used samples but can see I real difference in my skin. I plan on purchasing the full size as soon as I finish my other booster product. I prefer this one.

Love this

I started using PC about 10 years ago and was able to use her facial mask as my daily moisturizer. Now 46 I can see some signs of age and decided to upgrade from one really good product to another great product. A little more money but it is doing what I needed it to and that matters.

This improved my skin in a short period

I started using this product the day it arrived, which was probably around 11-12-18. Because of adverse reaction to a prescription Retin-A product, I have been very careful using this and haven't yet used it by itself. I started by mixing a small amount with my regular moisturizer and I am presently mixing it half and half. I would like to use it exclusively but because I have extremely dry skin, it would not be emollient enough for my skin. I have always had dry, sensitive skin but due to a medical condition, my skin became extremely dry starting last year. Having found a product that works for me in the Winter, I am not willing to give it up. In time, I may try one of Paula's moisturizers for very dry skin but for now, I am sticking to my combination of half my moisturizer and half the Resist with Retinol. I have been quite surprised at the way this has worked, at half-strength, to help to fade sun spots I have, which have been a major irritant - to me! The other surprise has been how a smile wrinkle I have has become less pronounced. That wrinkle doesn't bother me too much but no woman likes any wrinkle, if we're honest about it! :) I look forward to the Summer when my dry skin is usually less pronounced. I will then use this product as my major moisturizer over my serum and see if it's emollient enough for it. I am impressed by this product and would highly recommend it.

Great product, kudos for no plastic packaging

I've been using this produce for several years and I really like it. But what I'm especially happy about with Paula's Choice is that there is no plastic wrap or stuffing used in their boxes when mailed. Just paper. I'm on the lookout for companies who are not using extra plastic. Thank you!!

I have struggled with acne my whole life and yet I have terribly dry skin as well, it flakes and only is made worse by acne fighting washes and treatments. I've tried switching to more moisturizing solutions and less intense acne serums but it has only resulted in horrendous break outs. I've tried the oil free moisturizers for acne and those have never been moisturizing enough especially living in Canada during harsh winters. I first bought the CLEAR line of Paula's Choice products and it helped so much with my acne, but still soooo drying. I decided to try this moisturizer and it is lovely!! It goes on silky and soaks in well, I will say I still get breakouts but they are small and easy to manage and this moisturizer has not made my acne worse. It has completely gotten rid of my dry flakey skin and that awful dry tight feeling. Also my husband mentioned after a few days of using it that my skin looked great. And he didn't know I had switched anything, so I know it's helping!! I use this morning AND night, it wears well under makeup and it hydrates so well overnight. I only use the CLEAR line in the evenings and after using that plus this moisturizer, I wake up with lovely happy skin in the morning.

Favorite PM moisturizer

Paula's Choice makes some of the best skincare products out there, and this one is no exception. I have very sensitive skin that is combo in summer and dry in fall and winter. I have never gotten a rash or breakout from this. I can't say my skin has improved, only because my skin is in great shape and has almost no lines. Now, I have been using PC cleansers, toners, sunscreen, alpha and beta hydroxy, and moisturizers since 2003 (15 years!) and my skin hasn't really aged. I'm 44 and always get a double take when someone looks at my driver's license; most people think I am at least 10 years younger. I can't say it is all due to PC products, but I am not going to mess with a good thing!

BESTEST

So when i ordered it i was like ok i have 50 other products lets splurge some on this bottle as well.When i applied it i was so impressed. This is the best moisturizer on earth. It has amazing texture, very silky with luxurious feel. And in the morning your skin feels so fresh young and innocent it is just surprising how well you managed to reach the perfect duo

I had restalyne injections about 15 months ago, and I haven't had to do it again because of this moisturizer. It really does reduce the appearance of fine lines amazingly well! Sometimes, if I pass a mirror, I can't believe my skin looks so good. I gave this to my daughter and she said the same thing - the lines of her forehead look almost gone! I highly recommend this.

This product was not an issue with my sensitive skin, and it is moisturizing but does not feel heavy. While using for about a month, I noticed the fine lines on my forehead and slightly enlarged pores on my cheeks diminished enough for me to notice. I ran out and the fine lines are back, so I reordered.
