Today I’m reviewing a new skincare item from Paula’s Choice — their Resist Hyaluronic Acid Booster (spoiler alert — I love it!). If you’re unfamiliar with Hyaluronic Acid, basically it’s a skin-identical ingredient that helps to boost skin’s moisture content, plump skin and smooth wrinkles. I’ve been using the Resist Hyaluronic Acid Booster mixed with my eye cream for just over a month now — and wow, what a difference it’s made!
General Skincare Information
If you’re new here (or looking for more general information about skincare) and you haven’t read my Skincare 101 & My Routine post, head over there first for a crash course on skincare and a look and what products I’m currently using.
I received a sample of this with my order earlier this summer, and was immediately intrigued. My regular eye cream (mini review here, towards the bottom of the post) does a good job at keeping the skin around my eyes hydrated, but I was particularly interested in adding the Resist Hyaluronic Acid Booster to it to see if it really does plump the skin and smooth wrinkles like it claims. And guess what? I noticed a huge difference in the skin around my eye area, just by adding a small drop of the Resist Hyaluronic Acid Booster to my eye cream both morning and night. So, I picked up a full-size product with my last order.
The Resist Hyaluronic Acid Booster comes in a 20ml glass bottle with a glass eye dropper to dispense product. Like all Paula’s Choice products, I appreciate the simple, fuss-free packaging and I like the dropper — it makes it easy to see how much product you’re squeezing out.
The product itself is a clear, fragrance-free, viscous liquid. It has a thicker consistency, but is totally non-sticky and weightless on the skin. It dries to a silky, matte finish — I actually find that it helps my eye cream dry down faster and I’m able to apply concealer to the area more quickly. It wears beautifully under makeup and on bare skin.
I can even see a difference in the skin on my hand before (left) and after (right). The skin looks smoother, brighter and more hydrated, no?
I’m doing pretty well in the fine line and wrinkle department, but it never hurts to be extra preventative. Since I used a loose powder to set my undereye concealer, sometimes I find that my under eye area looks a bit dry. Since I’ve been using the Resist Hyaluronic Acid Booster, the skin around my eyes looks smoother and more hydrated, and I’ve noticed a reduction in fine lines around my eye area, as well.

The Final Verdict
Overall, I love this product! I’m going to continue using the Resist Hyaluronic Acid Booster with my eye cream, and also try it on my forehead area as well (can’t hurt, right?!). In reviews on the Paula’s Choice website, one reviewer mentioned that this has replaced their her injectable fillers, which is pretty amazing. In the winter, I can imagine it working well to help boost my facial moisturizers when my skin is a more on the normal / dry side.
