Additional Information

Why is it different?

RESIST Hyaluronic Acid Booster contains a specialized matrix of skin-smoothing hyaluronic acid, skin-replenishing ceramides, and panthenol that penetrates skin’s surface to help lock in moisture, keeping skin hydrated and ultimately moisturized.

Collapse
What does it do?

Visibly plumps skin, smoothing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles—including fine lines around the eyes. Can be used alone or add a few drops to your favorite moisturizer or serum to see even better results. From first use, you’ll see noticeably smoother, more hydrated, younger-looking skin.

Collapse
How to use

Dispense 2-3 drops into the palm of your hand and then apply to your face. Add a couple more drops if you will also be applying to your neck and chest. During the day, finish with a moisturizer with SPF 30 or greater. Can be applied under the eye area, avoiding the eye itself.

      Comments about RESIST Hyaluronic Acid Booster:

      I am an avid user of paula's choice products. I heard good things about this product so I ordered it although the product was very small. The product was okay but I was surprised because the bottle was only half full. Very disappointed with this product. Totally not worth the money

          Comments about RESIST Hyaluronic Acid Booster:

          I tried this when it first came out, and found it added a nice moisturizing boost to a foundation I liked that was on the drying side. It's not as moisturizing much as Paula's oil, but for me it was a good hot weather addition when I sweat and don't need a lot of moisturizing. I finished the bottle (as much as I could), but not sure I saw results different from the other moisturizers. Other than not being a notable product I've used in terms of results (like the retinol or vitamin c products), the two things that disappointed me were: 1) price for "meh" results (maybe it was doing wonders for my maturing skin, but I could not tell a difference from the other products I used); 2) much of the product dried in the bottom of the bottle because the dropper could not access it. This product really needs a packaging overhaul. For the price, it's a shame to waste so much of it. And 3) inconsistent dispensing. Again, a packaging redesign issue, but the product was very inconsistently dispensed, especially as the liquid level dropped. It's like a gloppy gel texture that is easily missed by the hard glass dropper if it sticks to the sides or the corner of the bottle where the dropper can't reach.

          Service and delivery comments:

          No problems!

          I recommend the RESIST Moisture Renewal Oil Booster instead

            I find this product to be... alright. It was not as effective as I was hoping in terms of hydration and I actually stopped using it because I felt like it didn't do much for my skin (it's really unusual for me not to finish my skincare products). I bought the RESIST Moisture Renewal Oil Booster instead, which I find to be MUCH MORE moisturising and it also helps with my skin redness. It does everything I was hoping this product would do for me. I will not be buying the RESIST Hyaluronic Acid Booster again, but the RESIST Moisture Renewal Oil Booster is now a must during the winter months.

                I've never had irritated skin until I started using this. The skin around my eyes became tough and leathery, greatly exaggerating the fine lines. Also it caused stinging and dry patches. Very disappointed because I was really looking forward to seeing some good results.

                5 Stars for the product, 3 stars for the packaging. I was amazed at how much this minimized the lines bisecting my lips; I started using it on my neck lines, as well. After using it around a year, however, I developed itching on my cheeks and neck. So, I just used it on my under eye and lip lines after that. Not sure why i developed itching after using it for so long. Very disappointing. I eventually started using on the rest of my face and neck again, but have seemed to be able control the itching by applying 100% aloe vera gel to the areas prone to itching. The stopper is problematic, as it takes several squeezes to get anything into the tube. Slow squeezes don't always work. And, when the contents fall below the dropper, there's still quite a bit of product left. You have to turn the bottle upside down and wait forever for the stuff to drip out. Still it's worth the trouble because it works so well on the lines and wrinkles.

                    I like the texture, but it's just so hard to get out of the bottle that I'm too frustrated and barely use it. I have used two other booster products from Paula's Choice and they work perfectly. I have so much trouble getting any product that I either tip it over and try to shake it out or more typically not use it. I wish I had read the other reviews about the faulty bottle before I purchased. I love the idea of a hyaluronic acid booster instead of a product with it in it, but until the packaging changes I will just search for products that contain it.

                      I love this product but... just got my new bottle today and the dropper will not grab product at all. I even pulled my old bottle out of the trash to use the old dropper since it had worked fine. It will not pull product out of the new bottle either. What am I supposed to do with an expensive product that I cannot use? Highly frustrated, I have been a long time customer and never really had issues until now.

                      Please consider making this MUCH larger! I use it twice a day from forehead to bra line. Constantly running out and I purchase four at a time. I store mine upside down after a couple weeks and still don't get all the product out. Change delivery system. I would buy this in a 4x size for convenience.
