We've been searching for a way to help us cover up our skin sins of the past. (Beet-red sunburns, were looking at you.) Consider our search over: This retinol-enhanced antiaging serum is backed by solid science. Not only do the clinically tested ingredients zap wrinkles, age spots, and acne scars, but they also fade redness for silky, zenned-out skin.This fragrance-free serum starts working immediately to clear up and smooth out your complexion. It releases a patented blend of retinol (stabilized for high performance), wrinkle-resisting antioxidants, and proven skin-soothers to help erase the effects of sun damage, poor lifestyle choices (ahem: tanning beds), and of course, Father Time.
Reading through the reviews, it seems like this worked well for other people. However, after a day or two of using the product I had red, itchy, puffiness all over my face. I had to throw my sample away.1
This made my skin dry, itchy and flakey. Especially around my nose. It was almost painful. Would not use this again.
I'm 57 and have brown spots on my face I would like to diminish. I tried this product for a couple days but found it irritated to my eyes. I only applied it to my cheeks and not underneath the eyes.1
I have tried Paula's Choice products before and they are not good for my skin for what ever reason I have acne prone, very oily combo skin. This product did not absorb and it felt oily. I use a different Retanol serum at night that is much lighter and absorbs fast.1
Extremely thick and oily, more than the other Paula's product that was also too oily that I bought this to replace!
This may be effective due to the retinol, but I could not find out because only a short period of use caused my skin to break out from pores clogged by the heavy oil. I have never seen any brand of "serum" this thick and greasy.
I purchased Product as part of the resist anti aging line. I won't be purchasing again. This line is not good for combination skin. It left my very normal skin greasy and caused breakouts. I haven't had a single pimple in over 5 years until using this line. I saw no improvement in my fine lines or wrinkles.1
I'm in my late 20s, and so I haven't given wrinkles much thought, nor have really altered my skincare routine much. Maybe that makes me unfit to write a review, but I'm going to anyway. I didn't care for the greasiness of this product. You could not wear this at daytime at all, and need to apply it well before bed to give it a chance to soak into your skin.1
I bought this serum because it seemed to be a dream come true: incredible ingredients (retinol, for anti-aging, reducing age spots, acne scars, redness, etc.), clinically tested, well-regarded brand, and, the BEST factor of all: you can use it on your eye area! It's non-irritating! It says so in the description and on the bottle! I don't have sensitive skin, have never had an issue with any product, and know/practice gentle eye-area dabbing. This is the first time in over 30 years that I have had a consistent reaction to a product. Not only is it irritating to the eye area, but that causes tears, which force me to gently tap a tissue on/around my eyes so often that I end up with dry eyes and tissue "dust"/particles on my lashes and eye area. That's the exact opposite of what using the product should do. It may be a home run for your face, a total grand slam in satisfying and delivering results on every other promise it makes, but if you want a product that you can use on your face, neck AND eye area, and it is a total fail for your eye area, then frankly, it's a total fail. You purchased it because it promised all three, and it doesn't deliver on that promise for all three.1
This product made my eyes well shots. I don't know what's in it apparently there are some herbs or other Nashly found ingredients that produce allergens. That should be disclosed1
This product made my face feel very oily. It took forever for it to absorb. After 2 uses I developed a very bad cystic acne breakout on my jaw, which I haven't had happen in over a year so I have to imagine that it was caused by slathering oil all over my face right before bed. I probably should have taken a look at the ingredients before using.1
