Review by Katica
Right after I turned 30, I started to notice crepiness under my eyes and dark circles. I tried a few things that unfortunately did not work, but either only irritated or dried my under eyes more!
I had already been using Paula's Choice products, and I was super duper in love with the quality and results! Then I decided to purchase the Resist Anti-Aging Eye Cream!
When I received the product, I thought this is tiny I'm going to go through this in a week! To my surprise it lasted me more than 3 months! I use it daily: morning and night! I noticed that you need to be consistent to see the positive effects and results! I can't do with out it now, it's a part of my skin care morning and night routine! This eye cream is my Holy Grail! I can not live without it now! I'm already on my second tube! It is so well developed the formula that you will notice the difference! (Posted on 24/12/2016)
Review by Amanda
By the time I bought this product, my under eye dark circles and bags had been transformed by the retinol effect but my upper eye area remained a problem. Puffy, puffy and in case you missed that, puffy!
Unfortunately most of the PC products I tried, hyaluronic acid, some serums, **daytime moisturisers made the puff even worse. The only things that didn't were nighttime moisturisers and anything with retinol in it but neither did they improve it. In addition the downside was all that retinol began making my eyelids a bit dry.
In comes the Resist eye cream but after the first use it made my dark circles worse, continued to so I decided to return the eye cream. PC are supremely confident in there products and rightly so, because of delivery issues, they allow me to try this product for longer. I reckon they must have known, I tried the eye cream some more, on my upper eye area only and WOW! No more dryness but best of all, no puff! That's right, I have eyelid space again! Amazing, I'm telling you!
If you want to improve under eye darkness and bags, I recommend retinol. If you want to lose the puff, I think that Resist eye cream is a must, it's tough on that puff and it'll be no more!
PS Although you only need a tiny amount I still think this is expensive for 15ml. Anything with the Resist label is more for less unfortunately, that said, I'm gonna keep on using this range because it works!
Thanks again to the mighty fine customer service team, but for your intervention, this product would have been returned and I'd have missed out on a real gem!
**I think it's the sunscreen my eyes don't like?
Customer Care: Thank you for your review and compliments. We are happy to hear that this product proved to work great for your eye area.

Review by Rachel
I'd never used an eye cream before, as I never felt the need for one. All my other creams worked just fine for that area. I decided to try this cream just because it sounded intriguing. I've been using it for about a week now and so far I like it. I don't think it's too thick, I just squeeze a small amount on the palm of my hand then sort of blend it with my finger. I apply a few drops of the Antioxidant serum around my eyes first and let it absorb for a few minutes then I apply the cream. I don't have to tug on my skin or anything like that, it just mixes really well with the serum and absorbs nicely after a little while. Leaves a non greasy layer that I like and stays put till morning, when I can still feel some remnants of the cream around my eyes. The cream doesn't travel anywhere and doesn't get into my eyes.
It seems the skin around my eyes feels more hydrated and a bit better under makeup, but it's too soon to tell about any other effects. I do have dark undereye circles which I got after three years of not sleeping well nor enough hours, and if it helps with that I'll be really glad!
Only reason for giving it 4 instead of 5 stars is the tiny tube which I wish was 30 ml instead of 15 ml for the price.

- I'm always in search of the perfect eye cream and I think I've found it! The main reason for trying Paula's choice in the first place was for their animal testing policy as I am trying to switch as many beauty products and skin care as I can to cruelty-free brands. Also, reading the negative comments on how thick the cream is actually attracted me to try this even more as I hate thin, runny eye creams that do nothing! Anyway I've been using this night and day for about three weeks now, which is enough time for me to gauge whether a product suits my skin and I have to say I love this cream. It's really not difficult to apply (so don't listen to those who say it is!) The skin around my eyes is much improved, it's hydrated, fine lines are reduced and it doesn't cause puffiness. Needless to say I shall be re-purchasing, and whats's even better is I'm helping the non-animal testing cause to boot! (Posted on 18/03/2016)
Review by Dimples
I've been using PC products for well over a year now.
I've carried out my own mini experiments on my skin with the luxury of being able to order samples. This has saved me money and allowed me to tailor my own skin care regime - an advanced one at that!
YOU REALLY DO NEED TO MONITOR YOUR OWN SKIN SYMPTOMS/CONDITION & GET TO KNOW YOUR SKIN.
I'm pretty sure PC has a product to suit everyone's skin type and need. Just be patient and read the information they freely offer to their customers!
I can honestly say the products are the best I've ever come across and I really have tried pretty much every skin care brand out there.
Also, such a refreshing change to have evidence based research & a host of unbiased information at one's fingertips via PC's website and Beautypedia. Where else does this happen - nowhere!
My job/career involves biology and researched based findings, so I can genuinely say Paula and her team take the hard work and confusion out of the cosmetic industry and marketing hype. I've NOT been paid to right this review and I have no biased interest to say anything other but genuine credit where credit is due.
***** Now for the EYE CREAM review ******
I'm 44 yrs of age, with few lines around the eye area. My under eye area had become dry, with dark bags and crepey looking. I'd noticed some dehydration lines appearing too.
Since using this eye cream (approx. 2.5 months now) I've noticed a vast improvement in the texture of my under eye skin. It is smoother, no more dehydration lines and no more dark circles!!! I must admit, I didn't expect this cream to help with dark circles.
In response to the review that the cream is too 'thick;' you need a very TINY amount.
I've found a split lentil size or less is plenty. I take this amount and tap it between my ring fingers to manipulate it, then I dab it gently under my eye area. A little goes a long way and this amount blends in lovely.
I've not had any irritation, nor had that cloudy/greasy feeling in my eyes when I wake up; which I've found with other eye creams.
The bonus is this eye cream is packed with the essential and research based ingredients.

Review by Barbara
I had very high expectations for this cream and I couldn't wait to receive it through the post, but it was a massive let down. It is really thick and hard to apply, and it doesn't get absorbed by the skin, it just sits on the top of it. I tried to mix it with Resist Moisture Renewal Oil Booster, but it doesn't mix, it just gets all scaly and messy.
After a few days I went back to my old cream.

Review by David
- I was very excited when Paula launched an eye cream and placed an order ASAP. When the eye cream arrived I was a bit surprised at how thick the cream is and I had never seen an eye cream like it. At first I struggled to apply but I learnt to warm it up between my two ring fingers and "padded" around my eyes. I have been using it for about 3 weeks and I really believe the area around my eyes looks brighter and younger than it has in years. I love this eye cream and another ground breaking product from Paula's Choice! (Posted on 26/12/2015)
Review by Sarah
- This is really thick, but I found that softening it between my finger tips and then pressing it on works. It's very moisturising and still manages to look matt (on me anyway). Four stars because I'm unsure whether or not this is what irritated my eyes slightly. Works really well as a hand cream, but too expensive to be bought as that! (Posted on 06/12/2015)
To help the rich texture of the eye cream apply more easily, first soften it between two fingertips. Then gently massage using a circular motion into the skin around your eyes. As always, avoid tugging or pulling at the skin and avoid direct contact with the eyes. For daytime, follow with a broad-spectrum mineral-based sunscreen rated SPF 25 or greater.
Resist Anti-Aging Eye Cream is an exquisitely rich eye treatment that works to steadily improve multiple signs of ageing, including dryness, sun damage and loss of firmness. The fragrance-free formula is designed to be highly effective, yet soothing and gentle for the eye area. Skin is treated to a powerful array of wrinkle-fighting antioxidants, peptides, and skin-identical ingredients to bring skin back to a more youthful state and boost suppleness with long-lasting hydration (enough to still feel it the next morning). In support of keeping the superstar ingredients potent, this eye cream comes in opaque, stable packaging for maximum benefit.
Who is This Product For?
Resist Anti-Aging Eye Cream is for all skin types interested in a separate product to treat signs of ageing around the eyes. Due to its super-rich formula, it’s also excellent for those struggling with very dry skin around the eyes or whose facial moisturiser isn’t well suited to the needs of their eye area.

Paula and her team continue to say that not everyone needs a special product labeled as an eye cream. That’s because many well formulated face products such as moisturisers, serums, and other treatments can and should be used around the eye area too.
We decided to create our own eye cream when we learned that even our most loyal customers were turning to other lines to purchase eye creams. This was especially frustrating because many of those products are just so badly formulated. We want to make sure our customers who feel they need to use an eye cream only use a truly outstanding one, so we formulated an eye cream that meets our stringent criteria for excellence.
If someone is going to use an eye cream it needs to brilliantly formulated with effective ingredients, not make outrageous claims, and be noticeably different in texture and results from traditional facial moisturisers. This is exactly what you’ll find our Resist Anti-Aging Eye Cream has. It is a completely different texture from our facial moisturisers—one that’s luxuriously emollient, rich, and long-lasting and yet still not greasy.
Do you need this eye cream? Not if you’re happy with the results you’re getting from your facial moisturiser and serum when applied around the eyes. But if you want to do more to fight signs of ageing or if the skin around your eyes is drier than the rest of your face, Resist Anti-Aging Eye Cream is absolutely worth using!
Is it OK to apply Resist Anti-Aging Eye Cream during the day?
Yes, provided you follow with a separate eye cream or facial moisturiser rated SPF 25 or greater. For best results, this SPF product should contain only titanium dioxide and/or zinc oxide as the active ingredients. These mineral actives are the least likely to cause irritation or stinging when applied near the eyes.
Be sure to apply a thinner layer of eye cream than you would at night, as too much eye cream during the day can interfere with makeup application and longevity.
Can I use this with any Paula’s Choice moisturiser?
Yes. Apply your facial moisturiser first, and follow with Resist Anti-Aging Eye Cream.
How do I use this with a serum?
Apply the serum around the eyes as usual and then follow with Resist Anti-Aging Eye Cream. It is also OK to reverse this order, applying the eye cream first and finishing with your serum.
How do I use this with Resist Moisture Renewal Oil Booster?
You can add a drop of Resist Moisture Renewal Oil Booster to a dab of Resist Anti-Aging Eye Cream, mix in hand, and apply around eyes. Alternately, you can apply Resist Anti-Aging Eye Cream and then massage a drop or two of the Oil Booster around the eyes.
Can Resist Anti-Aging Eye Cream be used with other Paula’s Choice treatment products?
Yes. You can mix them together before applying, or apply the lighter product first (which in most cases would be the treatment) and then follow with Resist Anti-Aging Eye Cream.
Is it OK to use Resist Anti-Aging Eye Cream with my prescription retinoid product? Which goes on first?
Yes. Apply the prescription retinoid first, and then follow with Resist Anti-Aging Eye Cream. If you’ll be applying serum around the eyes, too, apply the retinoid, then the serum, and finish with the eye cream.
Does Resist Anti-Aging Eye Cream help with dark circles?
It depends on the nature of the undereye darkness. Resist Anti-Aging Eye Cream can help lighten undereye darkness resulting from sun damage and, potentially, capillary leakage that shows as a bluish-green tinge beneath skin (this benefit is from some of the anti-inflammatory plant extracts and antioxidants in the formula). It can also reduce inflammation that makes undereye darkness more apparent.
Most people will see some amount of improvement in dark circles when Resist Anti-Aging Eye Cream is paired with daily use of a product rated SPF 25 or greater applied each morning.
If your dark circles are genetic or you’ve had them “for as long as you can remember”, chances are you will not see any improvement in them from use of Resist Anti-Aging Eye Cream; however, the moisturising, brightening, and firming benefits this eye cream provides will make the undereye area look smoother and better able to reflect light, all of which makes dark circles less apparent.
Does Resist Anti-Aging Eye Cream help with puffy eyes and undereye bags?
Resist Anti-Aging Eye Cream does contain some ingredients that can reduce swelling to some extent. However, if the type of puffy eyes you are struggling with is caused by fat pads pouching through the skin, or skin around the eyes is extremely lax or sagging, no skin-care product can change that. Most lines won’t tell you that, but we’re compelled to do so as our job is to tell you what works and what doesn’t.
The only fix for undereye bags and lax skin due to fat pads shifting is cosmetic corrective procedures or cosmetic surgery. We wish this wasn’t the case, but until you realise this basic physiological fact you will continue to waste money on products promising what is impossible to deliver.
One more point, if your puffy eyes are a result of allergies, too much salt, too much alcohol, or from not getting enough sleep, then Resist Anti-Aging Eye Cream can help a great deal—just don’t expect it to work for age-related puffiness.
How does this eye cream firm skin?
The firming comes from the steady effect of key anti-ageing ingredients in this eye cream stimulating healthy collagen production. Over time, as new, healthier, younger-acting collagen is formed, skin’s surface becomes smoother and more resilient (firmer).
Just to be clear, though, we’re not referring to this eye cream being able to firm or tighten loose, sagging skin around the eyes. This result is beyond what skincare can do, regardless of what it contains. It is a type of age-related skin laxity that requires cosmetic surgery for truly remarkable results.
