No-nonsense product, it just works!

5

Absolutely love this no-nonsense product, it just works! It very soft to my sensitive skin. Thought back in the day that a drugstore facewash would be just as good, but... it's not. There truly is a differnece in quality and results.

Nicest cleanser I have ever used

5

I love this cleanser! I have tried other PC's cleansers but always go back to this one. It works well really on my normal/dry skin and takes off make up well.

I SWEAR by this stuff!!

I am crazy about this cleanser!! This is hands down the best cleanser I have ever used from any line. It is really the only thing that removes all of my eye makeup. I rarely if ever have a breakout now. This was not the case before I started using it. Now I HOARD it!!!!

Great for oily sensitive skin

5

I have tried the RESIST for Oily/Combo skin line, the clear line, and skin balancing line, and I prefer this cleanser to them all. It is gentle and balancing, and leaves my sensitive skin feeling soothed and clean. One of my favorite PC products and use daily!

Gentle Cleanser

5

This is a gentle cleanser with a smooth texture that truly softens skin without drying. I can't say it's moisturizing but it definitely makes my skin feel great after using it. Because I use some heavy duty makeup, I need to wipe it off with a makeup remover first. Resist Hydrating Cleanser removes the last traces of makeup even around the eyes. No stinging of the eyes! Try this, you'll like it!

Great cleanser! Why are there no more samples???!!!!

5

I love this cleanser and I've used it for a very long time for my very sensitive, dry, acne-prone, aging skin. Most cleansers cause an allergic reaction for me. But, seriously, why has PC removed all their samples from their lineup???!! It's really, really frustrating! I use the samples both to try new products AND to take on business travel (and I'm happy to pay for them). I came here today to order new toner, try a new makeup, and get some cleanser samples for an upcoming business trip. I was only able to accomplish 1 out of those 3 goals! C'mon Paula! I've been a customer for years (I actually purchased your first books in the early 90s), and you whole shtick is that customers should be able to *try* products before they buy (ESPECIALLY makeup). What a disappointment.

Perfect for me!

5

This is perfect for me. I like that it's non-drying but still takes off my make-up (I generally wear light make-up so I don't know how effective it would be for heavy make-up). It's soothing and non-drying and yet it rinses off cleanly and without residue.

I found my cleanser!

5

Since I decided that Cetaphil wasn't doing a good enough job for me, I've tried several different cleansers - both PC and drugstore brands. Nothing every completely satisfied me until I tried this. It is thick and creamy and feels nice to use. It rinses well and leaves my skin feeling neutral - not dry OR overly moisturized. I wanted to stop using a toner to cut down on my bedtime routine, and with this, I am able to. I usually don't use foundation, but the few times I have this cleanser got all of it off - I followed with toner and the cotton pad was completely clean! I don't recall that ever happening with ANY cleanser I've ever used. This is IT for me. My search is over. LOVE IT!

Amazing product

5

I have combination skin, and always thought that Resist Perfectly Balanced cleanser was more suitable for me. I randomly decided to try this product one day, and the difference in result on my skin was amazing. My skin looks brighter, softer, and the pores on my cheeks (the dry part of my skin) actually became a lot smaller! I'm very surprised.
