Pros : Long Lasting (for normal to dry), Moisturizes Well, Goes On Smoothly
Cons : Slightly Greasy, Not Long-Lasting (for very dry or chapped)
Best Uses : Sensitive Skin, Daily Use, Night Moisturizer
I have normal to oily combination skin with dry patches on my cheeks/neck and oily nose/forehead. I have to be careful not to over strip my skin in favor of oil control because my drier areas will suffer greatly.
I've been on the hunt for a night-time eye cream and face moisturizer to bring my drier areas into balance, so I sampled Resist Intensive Repair Cream. I cleansed and toned with hydrating products prior to use so that my skin wouldn't be too dry. I applied to my drier areas shortly before bedtime as my last skin-care step.
On the plus side, the cream is very hydrating, with many beneficial botanical oils and anti-aging ingredients. It has a nice, creamy texture and neutral, clean scent. It was soothing to the skin on my face. On nights when my dryness was less extreme, the moisture lasted through the night, leaving my skin soft and smooth in the morning.
On the down side, it burned around my sensitive eye area. The product mostly soaked in, but left an oily residue. During days when my skin was feeling especially dry and chapped, this cream did not last through the night, and I had to reapply when I woke in the middle of the night. Also, I don't know if it is because I had a sample, but there was some slight separation of ingredients--the cream dispensed with some clear, oily liquid.
Overall I would say I'm on the fence, but slightly positive, about Resist Intensive Repair Cream. It is definitely worth trying for normal to dry, sensitive skin, but I don't see it as an effective moisturizer for very dry or chapped skin.
