Paula’s Choice RESIST 25% Vitamin C Spot Treatment

We’d rather not have years’ worth of our less-than-perfect choices (popping pimples, forgetting sunscreen) permanently stamped on our complexions. This concentrated treatment dramatically reduces signs of aging, thanks to its 25% vitamin C content. It fades dark spots, combats redness, and lessens the look of fine lines and wrinkles, leaving skin brighter and more even.

I didn't notice a difference
Sampled

I have a few scars from acne when I was younger, so I figured I'd try it on those. Unfortunately, I didn't notice much of a difference.

can not use!!!! it burns and makes the skin around my eyes itch :(
I was not sure at first this product was the cause of my irritation but it didn't took long for me to figure it out.

pretty good
Sampled

I like how smoothly this goes on. I only used it on my upper lip because that is where my most noticable lines are. I "think" I can tell a difference, because I only use it on the the days I wear make-up. The only complaint I have is that by using it on my upper lip, I have to be careful to not get it on my mouth because it is VERY BITTER.

Good product. Weird texture.
Sampled

I think this probably does the job it is meant to do (lighten dark spots and redness, brighten skin) but the way it feels on my skin kind of weirds me out. It might not bother some people but for me it felt almost like a silicone face primer but gritty. It is hard to describe. It didn't absorb. It sat on the surface of my skin like a primer would.

Bad texture/smell
Sampled

This product was not my favorite. It might be that I don't have acne scars, etc that it's designed to treat. I'll try it on my husband and maybe he'll find it useful. It felt gritty and had an acne medication odor. The rest of the sample will probably end up being thrown out.

Not sure what to think
Sampled

I tried this for three days and was a little unsure what I should have seen. I do have freckles and so I thought they would lighten a bit but really did not see a change at all. Maybe a larger sample would have shown more results

Noticeable difference
Sampled

It took about a week, but the forehead grooves are less prominent. I had been layering it with my regular nightcream and just applying it to the lines per the directions. Impressed!

Didn't see change

I tried the whole thing, and I wasn't sure if it worked or not. I did like how i couldn't smell it.

I Have Only Used This Once
Sampled

This product may be great for other's, but I did not find much use for the product, so my opinion really doesn't matter.

This vitamin C treatment works better as a primer than my current primer. It leaves my skin with a matte texture that keeps my makeup looking fresh all day. Unexpected benefit! I can't tell that it has made any difference on my darker spots, but the texture is fantastic.
