We love mixing this Super Booster with Paula's Choice RESIST Ultra-Light Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum.

Paula's Choice

Birchbox Breakdown

If the skincare world had a gifted program, this vitamin C face treatment from Paula’s Choice would be a shoo-in. The light-as-water formula visibly brightens skin in a matter of weeks, fading dark spots and wrinkles caused by everything from acne to sun exposure. Not only that, but it promotes plumper, younger-looking skin with a blend of smoothing antioxidants and collagen boosters. If acne is still a nuisance for you, fear not—the fast-drying liquid is ideal for all skin types and won’t clog your pores.

How it Works

A potent dose of 15% stabilized vitamin C starts working immediately to fade dark spots and leftover acne scars while also quelling redness. Antioxidant vitamin E, ferulic acid, and peptides help repair telltale signs of aging—like wrinkles and slackness—and stimulate collagen production, resulting in a smoother, tighter complexion. Bonus: The nonirritating formula is free of fragrances and dyes, and never tested on animals.

How to Use

Twice a day, dispense two to three drops into the palm of your hand and smooth over clean face. If you prefer, you can mix it into your moisturizer or serum and apply it that way. In the morning, follow this treatment with a sunscreen rated SPF 15 or higher.

C-15 Super Booster
Sampled

This product was just okay for me, it didn't seem as though 2-3 drops were enough to cover my face. I didn't notice any difference or changes after using it I didn't care for the texture and feeling on my skin.

glowing!

I loved this product! I have sensitive skin and this product was super gentle. I also do not like anything with a strong smell and this was perfect. it also left my skin feeling soft and glowing not greasy. I would highly recommend it to all women over 50.

This left an orange glow on my skin. If you have a darker complextion it might not be as noticeable. I didn't see an improvment in the amount of time I used it, you would need a bigger sample for that.

Seems okay?
Sampled

This is a hard sample to review simply because of the size. The texture and scent were nice, but there wasn't enough product to use this numerous times and see if it actually helps with hyperpigmentation. Bummer.
