Brand Overview

Paula's Choice Skincare's RESIST Omega + Complex is a lotion-textured, fragrance-free serum that takes full advantage of the exciting research around applying omega fatty acids to skin. Rather than just focus on one omega, this hydrating formula for all skin types contains an advanced mix of plant-derived omega-3, -6, and -9 fatty acids.

Omegas have a fascinating ability to calm skin and reduce inflammation within skin—even the kind caused by exposure to UV light. They help reinforce the natural factors in skin that give it radiance and resilience (Journal of Clinical Medicine, February 2016; and

Housed in an opaque bottle topped with a sleek pump applicator, this serum adds to its bounty of omegas with skin-replenishing ceramides, sodium hyaluronate, cholesterol, and ultra-hydrating shea butter. Together, these ingredients help strengthen skin's surface against signs of dehydration and moisture loss. With ongoing use, skin maintains its newly soft, smooth, radiant look.

RESIST Omega + Complex layers well with other serums or treatment products in your skincare routine. As with all Paula's Choice Skincare serums, it can also be applied around the eyes and works its magic on the neck and chest, too!

We suppose the best way to think of RESIST Omega + Complex is as a superfood for your skin. Daily use fortifies skin with research-supported ingredients it needs to look and feel healthier. All of the omega oils and other plant-derived fatty acids do double duty as antioxidants—the kind that deliver visible anti-aging benefits as they work to restore a beautiful complexion.

Paula's Choice Skincare At-A-Glance


Paula's Choice Skincare was established in 1995 when best-selling beauty author and consumer advocate Paula Begoun (known as The Cosmetics Cop) decided to develop her own products.

As a natural evolution of Paula's personal mission to help consumers find the best products for their skin, the line has grown into an extensive range of skincare and makeup products that are formulated to meet the needs of almost every skin type and skin concern imaginable, from acne to wrinkles.

Paulas Choice Skincare relies on published research where available to discover the best ingredients for skin. Stable packaging is another feature of the brand, using innovative, opaque, and air-tight or air-restrictive components that keep antioxidants and other light- and air-sensitive ingredients from breaking down. The line is also 100% fragrance-free.

Disclosure: Paula Begoun is the creator of Beautypedia and founder of Paula's Choice Skincare products. Reviewing thousands of skincare and makeup products over the past 30 years, both on this site and in her best-selling books, Paula's mission has always been to help consumers find the best products possible for their skin. The Beautypedia Team proudly and unequivocally maintains this commitment. In addition, The Beautypedia Team reviews all products using the same rating standards and criteria, whether it is a Paula's Choice product or another brand.

Why are Paula's Choice Skincare products rated highly? The Paula's Choice Skincare Team would not launch a product unless it was worthy of a high rating from The Beautypedia Team. Paula and The Beautypedia Team were researching and reviewing products long before Paula's Choice Skincare ever existed and consumers were constantly requesting a skincare brand that met all of Beautypedias criteria. As a result, The Paula's Choice Skincare Team was created and uses the same research and criteria to formulate Paula's Choice products as The Beautypedia Team uses to review products.

About the Experts

The Beautypedia team consists of skin care and makeup experts personally trained by the original Cosmetics Cop and best-selling beauty author, Paula Begoun. We’re fascinated by skin care and makeup products and thrilled when they meet or exceed our expectations, but we’re also disappointed when they fail to perform as claimed, are wildly overpriced, or contain ingredients scientific research has proven can hurt skin.
