Paula’s Choice Resist Anti-Aging Trial Kits | Wrinkles & Breakouts – Wrinkles & Sun Damage

Paula's Choice

In 2016, Paula’s Choice became my favorite skincare brand; her Resist line agrees so much with my skin, it gave a new meaning to skincare and brought a radiant glow, without any breakouts or irritations. On another note, if you’ve been religiously reading my blog, you know I love trial kits. So, what do you think happened when I received those little sets that let you try different products (in this case four) to add to your morning and night routine. I was (am) ecstatic!!!

Spoiler alert: I might have just found Holy Grail products in these two sets. They would make perfect gifts for the coming Holidays, or a perfect size to try before committing to a full size format.

Resist Anti-Aging Trial Kit Wrinkles & Breakouts - Wrinkles & Sun Damage

Resist Travel Kit for Normal to Oily Skin ($39)

A two-week travel kit of the RESIST anti-aging essential skincare routine for normal to dry skin. These products replenish moisture to combat dryness while refining the appearance of wrinkles and skin tone for a younger, revitalized-looking appearance.

Resist Anti-Aging Trial Kit Wrinkles & Breakouts - Wrinkles & Sun Damage

This trial kit is formulated for normal to oily skin but all four products are ideal for my combination to dry skin situation… They are so perfect, I’m really overwhelmed by their formulas! It’s a case of Love at First Application…

Paula's Choice Resist Travel Kit For Normal to Oily Skin

Cleanser: Resist Perfectly Balanced Foaming Cleanser (Full Size $19 for 6.4oz)

If you enjoy a very soft but effective cleanser that produces a nice rich foam (perfect to use with the Clarisonic or Foreo), then you need to try this product! Definitely doesn’t suck all the moisture out of your skin!

Exfoliant: Daily Pore-Refining Treatment 2%BHA (Full Size $33 for 3oz)

I’m always a little afraid of using products with Salicylic Acid in it. Normally, they irritate my skin a lot but when using this treatment only where I have the largest pores (my nose, cheeks and forehead), it does a wonderful job of purifying these problematic zone.

Moisturizer: Resist Anti-Aging Clear Skin Hydrator (Full Size $33 for 1.7oz)

This gel type formula is so refreshing; it absorbs very quickly (less than 5 minutes) and leaves your skin moisturized and soft as a baby’s butt! Totally LOVE this one; it’s a keeper for my daily regimen.

Moisturizer + SPF: Resist Youth-Extending Daily Mattifying Fluid SPF 50 ($33 for 2 oz)

To this date, this product is by FAR the best sunscreen I’ve ever tried in my life. During those last few years, I was on a (well documented) hunt for the perfect moisturizer with SPF. I have tried so many different products, from drugstores to high-end to even luxury products and most of them failed miserably or were just OK with some major flaws. This  Resist Fluid is the product I thought I’d never find. NO breakouts, NO white cast, it dries very quickly (I mean 1 minute quick) and doesn’t disturb your makeup. And as an added bonus, it’s mattifying without drying you up!

Note: The formula is more a liquid than a cream, so don’t press the tube too much, like I did the first time!

Paula's Choice Resist Travel Kit For Normal to Oily Skin

I Highly Recommend all these products but the sure winners are without a doubt the two moisturizers. There is no way I will ever be without these, EVER. Compared to their high-end counterparts, these Paula’s Choice products are affordable, cruelty-free, non-irritating, fragrance-free amazingness and effective as no other brands on the market.

Resist Travel Kit for Normal to Dry Skin ($39)

A two-week travel kit of the RESIST anti-aging essential skincare routine for normal to dry skin. These products replenish moisture to combat dryness while refining the appearance of wrinkles and skin tone for a younger, revitalized-looking appearance.

Paula's Choice Resist Travel Kit For Normal to Dry Skin

This second trial kit is formulated for normal to dry skin but again all four products are perfect for my combination to dry skin situation…

Cleanser: Resist Optimal Results Hydrating Cleanser (Full Size $19 for 6.4oz)

If you are someone who prefers a cleanser that doesn’t foam but leaves your skin feeling clean and fresh then you will very much prefer this cleanser. I use it as my first step in my double cleansing method (I prefer a foaming formula with my cleansing tools).

Paula's Choice Resist Travel Kit for Normal to Oily Skin

Exfoliant: Resist Daily Smoothing Treatment 5% AHA (Full Size $33 for 1.7oz)

This is a gentle AHA exfoliant that leaves the skin very soft to the touch and works beautifully at restoring uneven skin. The consistency is so nice and again, dries so quickly. Perfection even for sensitive skin!

Moisturizer: Resist Barrier Repair Moisturizer (Full Size $33 for 1.7oz)

I use this moisturizer at night since it contains RETINOL. It’s the best moisturizer to seal  your serum, essence or face oil for your nighttime routine. How awesome is the fact that you can also use it around your eye area!

Paula's Choice Resist Travel Kit for Normal to Oily Skin

Moisturizer + SPF: Resist Cellular Defense Daily Moisturizer SPF 25 ( Full Size Available Spring 2017)

This creamy textured moisturizer sets up wonderfully my skin for my morning foundation, powders etc… It doesn’t leave my skin feeling greasy whatsoever and does the best job at protecting my skin from harmful sun rays. Where have you been all my life?

Paula's Choice Resist Travel Kit for Normal to Oily Skin

In summary…

Are you someone who travels a lot!? If so, these Travel Kits are for you! Are you just in need of different products that perform beautifully to try? Give these a try, you won’t regret it! On the other hand, if travel sizes are not your thing, well take my word for it and go for the full size; I can’t underline enough how impressed I am with these products and how affordable they are considering the quality. Just to tell you how dazzled I am with Paula’s Choice moisturizers with SPF, I will state loud and clear that they are the very best I’ve tried, and believe me, I’m not taking my skincare products lightly these days… Every product included in these Kits  would make a great gift for you or a loved one.

Note: For the man (men) in your life, there is also PC4MEN Travel Kit ($30)

  1. I didn’t know she sells trial kits! I’ve been a Paula fan ever since I bought her books hehe! I even have her book on electronic format so I can search easily. #nerd
    My favourite Paula’s Choice product is the Resist Weekly Resurfacing with 10% AHA. Absolute HG material! Now you got me curious about the Resist Cellular Defense Daily Moisturizer SPF 25. I do have her Hydralight mineral sunscreen which is pretty good – it’s not hydrating enough for me. It’s really difficult to find moisturizers with mineral sunscreens.
    PS. Is is snowing on your blog? 😮

    1. It’s snowing on my blog and outside (we have a storm in Quebec😖)!
      The 2 moisturizers with SPF from these kits are definitely now HG status ✨… The nighttime moisturizers are also THAT good !!! (Way more affordable than my Perricone MD) I’m so impressed with the Resist line!
      PC has a free kit with purchase today😉
