Who is this product for?
Formulated for all skin types, RESIST Instant Smoothing Anti-Aging Foundation is for those seeking an elegant liquid foundation that provides light to medium coverage as well as proven anti-aging benefits. With shades that complement any skin tone from light to tan, its finish enlivens skin with a natural-looking radiance that feels matte yet looks fresh and youthful, never flat or mask-like.

How should you use this product?
During the day, apply a small amount after moisturizing with a Paula’s Choice sunscreen rated SPF 15 or higher. Using a makeup sponge, blend foundation into your skin with short, downward, strokes. Layer as needed to increase amount of coverage. If desired, set and enhance your daily sun protection with Paula’s Choice Healthy Finish Pressed Powder SPF 15.

I loved this foundation (I personally use Level 3 Light/Medium) for it’s light feel yet decent coverage. It felt like a BB Cream would but covered like a foundation. I found that I could blend this foundation in better with my fingers over a brush, and you can build up on the product for more coverage.

While using this foundation my skin certainly gave off a flawless appearance and my makeup wore well through the day resting on top. I tend towards an oily t-zone and it was slightly less noticeable when using this product.

The shades do well on the fair to medium end of the spectrum, and since this product is so wonderful I hope to see some darker shades on the horizon soon!

Available in six shades, all swatched below:

(L-R: Level 0 Porcelain, Level 1 Fair/Light, Level 2 Light, Level 3 Light/Medium, Level 4 Medium and Level 5 Medium/Tan)

Paula’s Choice Resist Instant Smoothing Anti-Aging Foundation retails for $24.95 and is available on the website.
