Ratings & Reviews

Great Product


This product is fantastic, I use it daily. I have relatively 'young' skin, Im 23 almost 24, but at 22 started to notice the beginning of some fine lines or skin creasing (not an expert). I think this product has really helped to 'pause' the signs of ageing I was seeing!






I had restalyne injections about 15 months ago, and I haven't had to do it again because of this moisturizer. It really does reduce the appearance of fine lines amazingly well! Sometimes, if I pass a mirror, I can't believe my skin looks so good. I gave this to my daughter and she said the same thing - the lines of her forehead look almost gone! I highly recommend this.

This product was not an issue with my sensitive skin, and it is moisturizing but does not feel heavy. While using for about a month, I noticed the fine lines on my forehead and slightly enlarged pores on my cheeks diminished enough for me to notice. I ran out and the fine lines are back, so I reordered.

doesn't break me out and hydrates my skin


I have been using this moisturizer for over a year now and it is my absolute favourite. I have acne but at the same time I tend to have dry skin. Finding a moisturizer was not easy but this one does the job. It hydrates my skin properly but also doesn't break me out. I'm in love with it.

My favourite moisturiser


I love this moisturiser! It's very lightweight but still moisturises really well (I tend towards dry skin). Since using it daily I can see a difference in the texture of my skin, and I seem to have more of a glow. But the reason I most love this product is that I can use it on my perioral dermatitis. I have had PD for some time but don't want to use oral antibiotics and haven't had success with a few topical treatments. I use very few products on it - a cleanser when I need it, a gentle toner once a day, and this. This moisturiser keeps the texture of my PD looking great. I still have redness there, but no bumps or flaking. Obviously with PD what works for some might trigger others but this product gets a big tick from me!

A must have for any anti-aging regime


I can't live without this moisturizer. I use it at night after a serum and my skin is so soft and smooth in the morning. I have recommended it to many people who agree it is a necessary component to all skin care regimes. When I visit spas, I am always compliment on how great my skin looks and I tell them about this moisturizer!

A mainstay


I don't know why I haven't reviewed this before. This is an absolute mainstay in my routine. I started using the Resist line several years ago and have been so pleased. I might swap some elements in and out (serums or exfoliators, for example), but I have stuck with this. As the last step in my nighttime routine, this stuff is simply perfect. It is light, smooth, elegant, and soothing, no matter what shape my skin is in. It has not fought with any product I've used (even those that did not work for me). It starts to melt just from the warmth of my hands and soaks right into my skin. No stickiness, greasiness, or bad smell. And it works! I am mid-50s, with slightly dry/sensitive skin. I have some wrinkles and old sun damage. I have also struggled with some annoyances such as menopausal acne, texture issues, and sun sensitivity, and have worked through various solutions. Right now though, thanks to the Resist line, my skin is in the best shape ever. I owe a lot of that to this moisturizer. This. This! I suspect I will continue to use this forever. I rarely say that about any product because I love trying new things, but honestly, why mess with what works and works well?

Great product that layers and mixes well. I never feel greasy. Hubby uses this too and loves it (PC men version)




Improvement within four uses!


I've only used this product a few days and I already see results. My skin looks healthier overall, the broken capillaries around my nose are significantly less visible, and a blemish I've had on my cheek for over a year is much more even-toned. I did see a bit of irritation, especially on the drier parts of my face after the first day, but I've never used a retinol product before and I have extra sensitive skin. It wasn't itchy or painful, just pinkish and rashy. It's mostly gone away already though.






I just love this lush feeling moisturizer. It has this luxurious cushiony texture that makes my skin feel moist and oh so pampered without being heavy or greasy. I think I participated in a blind testing of this several years ago prior to launch. It continues to be my favorite moisturizer bar none.
