Thank you for submitting your review! It will be reviewed by our staff before it is posted.This is a nice and light feeling product. Although it is for drier skin, I found that it worked well on my combination skin. It sinks in quickly and did not leave a shine on my face. The only reason I disliked the product was the sun filters in the moisturiser. As it is made in the US it does not contain any modern filters, but instead uses older filters like Oxybenzone and Homosalate in large quantities. I hear that PC are currently making a newer sunscreen with EU filters. I will look forward to trying these.
Customer Care: Hi GLcok, I'm so happy you're loving our Resist Anti-Aging Restoring Moisturizer SPF 50! Although aimed towards normal-dry skin, it can be a great option for combination skin that tends to be more dry than oily! We are always looking for new products and ways to make existing products better - make sure to subscribe to our newsletter to stay up-to-date! Kind regards, Marissa - Paula's Choice Customer CareThis product is great for my dry skin. It absorbs fast, doesn't have a strong smell, keeps my skin hydrated, protected and tackles fine lines. However, it contains many ingredients that are not coral reef safe such as Oxybenzone, Homosalate, Octinoxate, etc. I would be willing to try out other alternatives from PC, but some of them also contain nanoparticles, which are also sub-optimal. I was drawn to PC due to its cruelty-free policy and transparency. So, as much as I appreciate the full disclosure of all the ingredients, knowing that there are some which are (indirectly) harming animal life is, unfortunately, a no go for me and I won't be buying this product again.
Customer Care: Hi JS. Thanks for your review! I'm happy to hear that you enjoy the product itself. We strongly support efforts to heal our planet and share the desire to preserve the aquatic environment. We take this commitment very seriously and would never launch or continue to sell any products that contained ingredients known to put consumers' health at risk and we are looking for ways to extend these practices to protect both human and environment alike. In the meantime, we take skin health very important and choose the best known ingredients to support this. Please feel free to contact us if you ever have any other questions.

What is the difference between the Resist Anti-Aging Skin Restoring Moisturizer with SPF 50 and the discontinued Resist Anti-Aging Cellular Defense Moisturizer SPF 25?
- SPF: The day moisturisers differ in their SPF. The new Resist Anti-Aging Skin Restoring SPF 50 contains a higher SPF and is a synthetic sunscreen, the Resist Anti-Aging SPF 25 was a mineral sunscreen.
- Texture: The Resist Anti-Aging Skin Restoring SPF 50 has a more lightweight, fluid texture that is easy to apply but rich enough for dry skin.
- Formula: The Resist Anti-Aging Skin Restoring SPF 50 not only helps to prevent new signs of ageing, but also contains added ingredients (like niacinamide) to help to reduce existing signs of ageing. Brown spots will become less visible and skin tone more even. The Resist Anti-Aging SPF 25 only prevented new signs of ageing.
Can I apply the moisturiser around the eyes?
The Resist Anti-Aging Skin Restoring Moisturizer SPF 50 can be used around the eye and orbital bone. In general we don’t recommend applying the moisturiser directly onto your eye lid.
Is the Resist Anti-Aging Skin Restoring Moisturizer with SPF 50 suitable for Rosacea prone skin?
It’s not clear what causes rosacea-prone skin to react and while you most likely won’t experience any problems using the Resist Anti-Aging Skin Restoring Moisturizer SPF 50 we recommend using a day moisturiser with a mineral sunscreen. Try our Skin Recovery Daily Moisturizing Lotion SPF 30 or the Calm Moisturiser SPF 30 for normal to dry skin.
How often should I reapply this product?
To get the right amount of protection apply the product liberally. When skin is exposed to direct sunlight you’ll need to reapply every two hours. If you plan to swim or if you sweat you must reapply.
Creamy cleanser gently yet effectively removes dirt and makeup for clean, smooth skin.
Hydrating exfoliant corrects uneven skin tone and minimises fine lines and wrinkles.
Hydrating moisturiser with 0.01% retinol combats signs of ageing & reduces fine lines and wrinkles.
