Ingredients

Brand Overview

This silky cleansing lotion contains moisturizing and soothing ingredients (including green tea and chamomile) that work to replenish skin during the cleansing process. As a result, aging skin is able to hold on to the naturally occurring substances it needs to look and feel healthier, all while removing makeup and surface impurities.

The water-soluble formula rinses completely, without leaving a residue, and works well to remove most types of makeup, although long-wear or waterproof makeup may present more of a challenge. This exceptionally gentle, fragrance-free cleanser is ideal for normal to dry skin (and sensitive skin, too).

Pros:
  • Silky cleansing lotion is ideal for normal to dry skin.
  • Emollient, soothing formula replenishes skin.
  • Rinses completely.
  • Fragrance-free formula works great for sensitive skin.
Cons:
  • Not adept at removing tenacious (waterproof) makeup.
Jar Packaging: No
Tested on animals: No

RESIST Optimal Results Hydrating Cleanser is the first step in your Resist aging routine. This elegant cleansing lotion instantly softens your skin as it removes makeup. Best of all, your skin is soothed and replenished as you cleanse.

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.

Our mission has always been to help you find the best products for your skin, no matter your budget or preferences. Beautypedia’s thorough and insightful reviews cut through the hype and provide reliable recommendations for all ages, skin types, and skin tones.
