Thank you for submitting your review! It will be reviewed by our staff before it is posted.I am using this together with AHA and my skin is so clean now. I love it and it makes my skin smooth and hydrated. I highly recommend this.
Hi Ale, we are thrilled to know you are combining AHA's and BHA! For some people, AHAs and BHAs can be used together with either alternating use or applying at the same time with extremely positive results. The key reason for using an AHA and BHA exfoliant at the same time is whether your skin needs more thorough exfoliation. This might be the case for those who have advanced signs of sun damage, deep wrinkles, stubborn clogged pores, bumps, or persistent dull, flaky skin. If you have any questions or concerns. Do not hesitate to contact us. We are always happy to help! Warm regards, Alexa - Paula's Choice Customer Care TeamI ordered the resist travel kit to test out some Paula's Choice products before investing in the full sizes. This has got to be my favourite product of the range! It has such a nice consistency to it and isn’t too heavy to put on as a night cream. I put it on after the BHA 2% liquid exfoliation which I have also been trying out and these two products combined have helped reduce my scarring, eliminate/reduce spots and one of the biggest improvements I noticed was my skin appearing so much brighter in the mornings. Just ordered the full size of this as it is now a must-have in my routine!
Customer Care: Hi Bel! I'm so happy you're loving our Resist Clear Skin Hydrator! It works SO well with a BHA exfoliant to help keep acne-prone skin healthy and hydrated without feeling greasy or heavy. The addition of niacinamide, which helps to address the appearance of pore size, is key when targeting blackheads and clogged pores. Make sure to contact us if you ever have any questions! Kind regards, Marissa - Paula's Choice Customer CareThis is by far my best PC product & I have repurchased it over & over. It hydrates my oily prone skin, prevents breakouts whilst tackling fine lines! Never discontinue it I beg of you :)
Customer Care: Hi Claire. Thank you for taking the time to leave your review of our Resist Anti-Aging Clear Skin Moisturiser. This product has a beautiful, lightweight texture and hydrates and nourishes skin without leaving it greasy or causing breakouts, and we're so glad that you love it. If you're ever looking for other product recommendations or routine advice, please reach out to our Customer Care Team who will be more than happy to help. Kind regards, Shannon - Paula's Choice Customer CareGreat velvet texture and sinks right in. If you want some extra hydration I used a hyaluronic acid serum with it, which also helped make it last longer. I don’t know whether it brightened my skin, but it has helped with my breakouts (I also use the BHA toner x2 a week or so). I wouldn’t say it helps your wrinkles/lines, but it does make your skin smooth! If you don’t like a thick night moisturiser then I would recommend this.
Customer Care: Hi Nikki, thanks for this review of our Resist Anti-Aging Clear Skin Hydrator. I love to hear how you've incorporated this into your routine, using with Hyaluronic Acid is a great choice for added hydration. If you're looking for a more targeted treatment for wrinkles or fine lines, consider adding our Peptide Booster to your routine! Kind regards, Marissa - Paula's Choice Customer CareStings a little when you put it on. Been using it for 6 weeks now and definitely not seen any changes in my skin. Probably fine to use by itself but I do not recommend it for combination skin if you use retinol products and exfoliant as it doesn't moisturise the skin enough. Sadly not seen any change on my pores or blackheads.
Customer Care: Hi there! We're sorry this wasn't a fit for you. Please contact a member of our Customer Care team, who can assist you with a possible alternative and might be able to provide you with a refund.I bought the small size to try it out -- I have normal to oily skin, with frequent tiny breakouts around the chin and lips area and I generally use a water based moisturiser for my night routine so to keep the routine as light and not invasive as possible -- but sometimes i wanted to added weight of a proper cream instead of a gel. So I tried this. And: I'm obsessed. I'm actually confused as to how it can be so great. I've read of many products that they sink in great but this is something else, made me feel like one of those plants who just soak in ALL the water when they're massively dehydrated-- which I'm not! It just absorbs that well! And the feeling on my cheeks after is frankly ridiculous. As if I was made of the softest glass.
Anyway, I don't really have a choice but to buy the bigger version. The only possible complaint is that because it absorbs SO quickly and it's not very slippery as texture, i have to use quite a lot of product to cover all my face and neck, which unfortunately is going to mean i will finish it quite soon. That's all!I love this product. I find that moisturisers for an oily skin tend to lack substance. This works great during the day under make-up (I wear a separate SPF on top) or at night.Very nice texture - sinks right in. I'm happy it is fragrance free. Like with the other products, I am really impressed. I do have a question though - should I avoid using this on my nose where I have pores, or will this help tighten the pores on my nose if applied there? I am using the skin balancing range for cleanser, toner, BHA, spf etc.
Customer Care: Hello, and thank you for sharing your experience with us, we are always delighted to hear from our customers. You can still use this product on your nose where you have pores. This product contains niacinamide, niacinamide is a water-soluble vitamin that works with the natural substances in your skin to help visibly minimise enlarged pores.I use this as a last-step product in the evening. If used sparingly (too much can sit heavily, so less is more with this), then it provides a good layer of lock-in protection for the ingredients in my routine that come first (like in a serum). This then helps leave a general element of 'conditioning' to my skin. As part of my overall routine I've built with PC, it's been a great way to solve some skin problems, and get rid of redness, bumps & breakouts. Very happy!This is a game changer! First off, it does not smell at all. I so appreciate PC for not adding fragrance to their products. This feels so luxurious and wonderful going on your skin. I have acne prone skin and this is just moisturizing enough and does not break me out. I tried the travel size and now I am getting the full size. My skin looks radiant and beautiful in the morning after applying this before bed.I also use the serum before and my skin does not feel moisturised enough and i have to apply more once it dries in and for the price it’s not going to last me very long disappointed
Customer Care: Hello, and thank you for sharing your experience with us - we're sorry to hear this didn't work as expected for you! Please contact a member of our Customer Care team, who can assist you with a possible refund and alternative product advice.I have oily skin and has hoped that this moisturiser would work as it’s recommended for oily/combination skin. I don’t find these products good value for money. I’ve been using twice daily for 3-4 weeks and I’ve now ran out. My skin is more dehydrated and oilier than it was before. My facialist has suggested that this might be down to this ineffective moisturiser. It’s the second product I’ve tried from the brand and I’m disappointed. I wouldn’t purchase from the brand again. You can get much higher quality and effective products for the same price or a little more. When I contacted customer service they were little help. Offering to recommend products for my skin type - i’d already bought products based on their suggested products for my skin type online.
I thought I was giving the products a fair chance to work but by doing so I’ve forfeited any chance of claiming the money back guarantee.I ´ve been usin PC products for years and when I needed a new hydrator I bought this product. Very disappointed in this product, it feels that it had expired already when it arrived. I have not used it because it does not feel nice to put it in my face when yellow/ brown in color and bad smelling. It also clogs at the opening.
Customer care: Hello, and thanks for your comments! We are sorry to hear of your experience. All of our products are 100% colourant and fragrance free. What you smell is the scent of one or more of the ingredients (raw materials) used for the production. This smell can vary from batch to batch and can be interpreted differently from one customer to the next based on their sensitivity level. This moisturiser contains vitamin C which has a yellow/orange colour and can change when in contact with air, but the product is still safe to use.More than five stars to this exellent anti aging moisturizer. It makes the face look like a canvas, smoothly absorbs the oil and leaves the face soft and shine free even 5 hours afters. It layers amazing even with a lotion and a serum underneath of it. So difficult to find a non oily anti aging treatment. Thanks Paula.I have been using PC’s products for a while and have liked most of them but this one definitely seemed very odd. There was a really weird smell and the colour was off (very yellowish).. after several pumps it got clearer so i think the product has probably expired (i purchased a sample and it has no expiry date). Definitely a bit disappointed.. I can’t afford to purchase a full-sized product every time i want to try something new
Customer Care: Thank you for your feedback.

Unopened Paula's Choice products have a shelf life of up to 5 years. If a product has an expiry date of less than 30 months, an expiry date must be printed on the product, for example, our sunscreens. What you smell is the scent of one or more of the ingredients (raw materials) used for the production, this can vary from one batch to another. Also slight colour variations can occur. Should you have any doubts about the quality or effectiveness of a product, feel free to contact our customer service team.I love this product!! It used to have very good reviews but I guess they disappeared when the website changed. Anyway I decided to leave my review because I really think it deserves better than 3.5 stars!! I love the texture of this cream it's perfect for the dry areas and it doesn't feel heavy on the oily areas. I never breakout using this and I really feel it's a great cream if you are in that age where you start to be concerned about wrinkles. I don't think you should let the smell scare you because it fades away when you put it. Anyway I love that Paula's choice doesn't put artificial smells that don't bring any benefit!My skin and I are very happy with the Hydrator! For summer, for combination skin as mine- perfect! Re-order again.This is too drying by itself. In order to use it you will need to mix it with a serum. By itself it’s expensive but if you have to use it with a serum it becomes so expensive not worth a re-order.I tried a few samples. The smell is too strong and it's similar to a soy sauce. I like soy sauce when cooking but I can't sleep at all with that smell around me. T^T

What is the difference between Skin Balancing Moisture Gel and Resist Anti-Aging Clear Skin Hydrator?
Skin Balancing Moisture Gel and Resist Clear Skin Hydrator both are an excellent option for combination or oily skin. However, the composition of the resist Clear Skin Hydrator is even more focused on the improvement of the ageing skin with breakouts. So if you're dealing with wrinkles and blemishes you will probably prefer the Resist Clear Skin Hydrator.
Will my skin only need the Resist Clear Skin Hydrator to prevent breakouts?
Resist Clear Skin Hydrator contains important ingredients to reduce breakouts and post-breakout marks, but you need to use more than one product to prevent breakouts. It is essential to use a mild cleanser, an exfoliant with salicylic acid (BHA), and a moisturiser with an SPF 30 or greater. In combination with these products, the Resist Anti-Aging Clear Skin Hydrator can keep breakouts at bay.
Why does Resist Anti-Aging Clear Skin Hydrator not contain retinol?
Retinol is an amazing anti-ageing ingredient, but not the only one! Paula and her team have developed the Resist Clear Skin Hydrator as a unique formula. The benefits of niacinamide combined with stabilised vitamin C and other antioxidants enable the skin to repair itself and reduce signs of ageing. Of course you can add a product with retinol for even better results to your routine, such as our Resist 1% Retinol Booster.
Creamy foaming face wash will leave skin feeling refreshed, soft and smooth.
Super-light, anti-ageing toner prevents signs of ageing and refines pores.
Ultra-light exfoliant improves visible signs of ageing and refines pores for radiant skin.
A lightweight hyaluronic serum that reduces brown spots from breakouts and makes pores less visible.
Lightly tinted moisturising lotion protects skin from sun and absorbs excess oil.
