Paula's Choice RESIST Body Oil Spray is, true to the name, a lightweight blend of oils and fatty acids, which can be used to boost moisture anywhere on the body (including the face, if you have normal to dry or very dry skin). It's fragrance free, making it an option for those with sensitive skin, too. It's gentle and soothing enough even for skin prone to eczema.
Packaged in a plastic bottle with a spray top that handily works at any angle, this is a good option for anyone looking to supplement their usual moisturizer, especially for the colder, drier months of the year. It would also work well on its own for those interested in a lightweight moisturizer that can be applied quickly.
Paula's Choice added a blend of several non-fragrant plant oils, such as borage, jojoba, evening primrose and plum seed. Each has their own antioxidant benefit for skin. This isn't a pure blend of oils, which is what gives RESIST Body Oil Spray a lighter aesthetic (allowing it to be dispensed by a fine mist via its spray top).
For very dry areas, we recommend layering RESIST Body Oil Spray under a richer moisturizer, as this likely won't be enough on its own to replenish such spots. We would also strongly recommend caution when spraying it around clothing or fabric, as the fine droplets can stain them.
Ultimately, the RESIST Body Oil Spray earned high marks for its non-fragrant blend of multiple plant oils, unique dispenser (their "360-angle" spray top), and lightweight aesthetic. Used with your regular body moisturizer or alone, it's an excellent option and one of the few fragrance-free spray body oil blends available.
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.
Paula’s 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 Beautypedia’s 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.
