In terms of texture and foaming action, they’re very similar; however, Resist Perfectly Balanced Cleanser goes beyond Skin Balancing Oil-Reducing Cleanser to care for oily, combination, or breakout-prone skin also showing signs of aging due to sun damage. Resist Perfectly Balanced Cleanser contains a broad range of specialized repairing ingredients to preserve and reinforce skin’s barrier function during the cleansing process. If you’re using Skin Balancing Oil-Reducing Cleanser but are concerned about signs of aging, you may want to switch to Resist Perfectly Balanced Cleanser.
Resist Optimal Results Hydrating Cleanser is a slightly creamy cleansing lotion while Resist Perfectly Balanced Cleanser has a lighter texture and slight foaming action that cleanses more thoroughly due to it being designed for oily skin. Although the formulas are very different, both are gentle cleansers. Resist Optimal Results Hydrating Cleanser’s formula is designed for those whose barrier function has become impaired due to sun damage and the passage of time. It’s ideal for normal to dry skin, while Resist Perfectly Balanced Cleanser is better for combination to oily skin with breakouts.
The gentle formula and its silky texture cleanses skin by not disrupting its delicate, sun-damaged barrier. As a result, with each use you’re restoring key elements aging skin needs to look younger and healthier. By keeping your sun-damaged skin’s barrier more intact during the cleansing process, your skin is able to hold on to the naturally-occurring elements it needs to strengthen and repair itself. When your skincare routine respects skin’s barrier integrity and replenishes it with the ingredients it needs to look and act younger, you will see more youthful skin!
