Additional Information

Why is it different?
RESIST Weightless Advanced Repairing Toner visibly smooths signs of sun damage and ageing as well as minimising the appearance of enlarged pores and improving uneven skin tone. It is an essential step in any skincare routine to renew skin after cleansing. Can also help remove the last traces of makeup.
What does it do?
A super-light formula powered by niacinamide, a B vitamin that research has shown to visibly improve skin tone and minimise pore size. Also includes an impressive range of other skin-restoring ingredients that can further improve visible signs of ageing, including fine lines, wrinkles, and loss of firmness.
How to use
After cleansing, apply toner to a cotton pad and gently stroke over face and neck. Do not rinse. Follow with the rest of your morning or evening skincare routine. For daytime, finish with a broad-spectrum sunscreen rated SPF 15 or greater.

Ratings & Reviews

Large pores and blackheads, begone!


Fantastic product! I have always used the Resist Replenishing toner as my skin tends towards dry, and been very happy with the results. However, I have this annoying nose that manages to be dry and scaly, and oily and blackheady at the same time. With summer coming up, I decided on a whim to try a sample of the Weightless Repairing Toner for a change, and was pleasantly surprised by the results. My pores almost disappeared, and even the whiteheads on my chin became almost invisible! It doesn't make my skin feel dry if I moisturize really well, and my foundation looks better after I use this product. I now use the Resist Repairing toner during the day, and the Replenishing at night and I'm super-happy with this regime; my skin looks great.

Any benefit


I purchased this product to reduce the size of my pores and a few fine lines that I have on my forehead. I am using it for 5 months ago twice a day after the Skin Balancing clenaser and honestly I have not seen any difference in my skin. The only positive thing I can see is that my skin is very clean as with any toner and it doesn't irritate my skin. I am going to try Skin Balancing toner to see if it really minimize pores and works good in my skin, otherwise I have to change brand since these two toner are the only ones that Paula's Choice has to minimize pores for my skin type.




Made my skin go slightly red.


I wanted to like this toner but when I applied it my skin went slightly pink/red. I know that's a sign of irritation so wont be buying this. I used up two samples and kept getting the same result. Is a pity because it goes on nicely. Try a sample before you buy.

Barely there results, if any.


Things I liked: Great texture, very thin but a little goes a long way. No annoying scents or unnecessary fragrances. Packaging is small, which is a love/hate thing for me because smaller packaging usually means a better preserved (and more effective) formulation...but it means more plastic out there in the world. Things I didn't like: I wanted to like this product because of the changes I saw in my skin after trying the Resist BHA line. But swapping my usual witch hazel toner with this toner actually gave me fewer results. It went on nicely, felt clean and light on my oily skin, but...I really struggled to see any real benefit. I wanted to see tighter pores, brighter skin, fewer lines, but got neither. I've finally finished the bottle, but won't be ordering this again because, well, I like to see actual results for the money spent! I'm going to try the other Resist toner next, because the other products I've tried form PC are so great.






I was very excited to try this toner but unfortunately it fell short in several ways. Firstly, the bottle is tiny for the price (come on Paula, I've used your products for 20 years!) and secondly, it did not deliver. I found my skin did not feel as good as it does using Skin Balancing or Hydralight toners and it caused some breakouts. Disappointing product.

Cause irritation


I love that PC combines anti aging and textures that suit those of us are prone to blemishes. This toner definitely caught my eye but after several uses I started to get a rash and my skin would feel heated when I put it on. Another 2 days after that and my cheeks started to flake and burn when applied. I woild still recommend this to a friend because the texture is spot on and the anti aging benefits are legit but would advise them to get sample first.

It has been a while (maybe a few years) since I've used a toner. I didn't see them as anything beneficial and never understood the purpose of them past trying to severely dry out acne prone skin. After discovering Paula's Choice I thought I might give a toner a try to boost the anti-ageing benefits in my skin care. I love this. It is truly light and weightless, yet it adds moisture to the skin such that it doesn't make it feel dry or uncomfortable. I also found it left my skin feeling smoother, more refreshed and refined. It has now become a step in my skin care that I definitely look forward to. I've almost finished my first bottle and I look forward to purchasing another one!

One of the best toners you can try


I've tried the skin balancing and earth sourced toners and this one tops both of them, honestly feels amazing on the skin and makes skin feel so good. Definitely seen an improvement in my skin in a couple of days and cant wait to use it longer. Only complaint is bottle size as it is the smallest toner you can get from PC
