Oil slick be gone

I have seriously oily skin. Like legit could fry an egg on this forehead in the summer. This stuff has been life changing let me tell you! I pat on a pea sized amount over my t-zone and bam! oil free for a 10 hour day. I have extremely sensitive skin that is breakout prone and as of day 5 no issues. I seriously love this stuff so much I might buy another just to stick in my purse. Game changer!

I absolutely love this stuff and it lasts forever. I'm only buying my second tube because it is on sale with free shipping. I have EXTREMELY oily skin. Literally shiny after an hour even when I use a face powder. I put on my make-up and then gently pat this over my T-zone and it lasts for like 10 hours. I just carry it in my purse and pat some on if I need it later. I also just pat some one even if I'm not going to wear any make-up.

This stuff is amazing! I started using the Resist line because my skin is aging and I want to prevent wrinkles. It's been fantastic EXCEPT for it increasing the oil on my face. "No big deal", I thought. "I'll just get some of those oil blotting paper sheets." I was using two to three oil blotting papers a day and then I discovered this. It works IMMEDIATELY! The instant you put it on (and you have to dab it like the directions say) your skin will feel as soft as a baby's. And it'll feel like that for 8 hours at least. Mine lasts up to 12 hours depending on what I'm doing. But even after a long day, I get home and my skin isn't as oily as it was before I starting using this. Good bye oil blotting paper, hello carefree, oil-free day!

Makeup with no makeup

This really is like the pretty Snapchat filter!!! I've never liked wearing makeup, but I always feel inadequate around people who do. This gives my skin that little something extra to smooth and even it out without having to use foundation or anything. It also really does seem to reduce the appearance of my pores. Highly recommended!

I cant be without this

I have very oily, sensitive skin that still breaks out some even though I am in my 50s. This mattifies my skin and helps give my foundation a nice finish without breaking me out. Before this, every primer caused me to get pimples. The trick is to gently pat on, otherwise the finish is too heavy.

This stuff is amazing! Buy now!

This stuff is nothing short of a miracle. I was shocked that it actually works. I purchased a second tube a couple weeks later when I saw it on sale. Figured I should stock up. You tap it on after your concealer/foundation but before any powder. My skin is disgustingly oily, and I notice that's it's a lot less shiny midday when I wear this product. I don't soak through multiple oil-blotting sheets.

Love it!

I love this product. I have oily skin and sweat very easily and have tried blotting sheets that offer very temporary relief. I bought some samples of this product because of the excellent ratings and loved the results. The moment that pushed me to purchase a full size of it was when I used it after sweating up a storm dancing at a wedding - I first blotted the sweat off with a paper towel and then applied the shine stopped and I instantly looked as fresh as I did at the beginning of the day! Amazing!

great product

I am totally satisfied with this product. it does more than i was expecting it to do. i have such an oily skin, especially during the summer months my face is quite shiny- not the kind we look to have though. So i had a trial sample from Paula's Choice and feeling very happy about the product so I would order a full size soon.
