Paula's Choice RESIST Ultra-Light Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum

We love ourselves a vigorous antiaging cream, but here’s the rub: They tend to be a tad on the greasy side and rarely take oily skin into consideration. Not so with this ultralightweight serum from Paula’s Choice. The water-based formula is designed especially for oily, enlarged pores and is also suitable for use around the eyes. Not only does it come loaded with clinically proven antioxidants for a smooth, matte look that minimizes the appearance of pores, but it targets wrinkles without retinol, which can upset oily skin.

I like it!

I have used other products with hyaluronic acid at the recommendation of my esthetician to help combat skin dehydration which is different than dry skin (which explains a lot). I noticed a very fine line on just one side of my mouth and I started using a heavier application of the hyaluronic acid my esthetician recommended with little improvement. I used this product once and it worked much better and it is actually less expensive!

Great Serum!
Purchased

So I'm fairly new to the world of serums. I had received a different one in one of my boxes and thought I had found a game-changer. After purchasing the full size and using it up completely, I decided to try a new one. I bought this one based solely on the reviews (and because it's a cruelty free company!) and I'm so glad I did! Yes, it's an odd, yellow color, but so what? It goes on smoothly, absorbs beautifully, and leaves NO residue. I have been using it for about a month. I think my skin is clearer - less breakouts and redness. I don't have a lot of fine lines (yet) so I don't really know how it works on those. The size will last me several (I'm estimating 4-5) months! Great formula - I highly recommend. I may have found "the one."

Powerhouse!

This was one of the first PC products I purchased, and I was seriously so impressed!! I have really oily skin, so I was looking for a lightweight serum that could double as a moisturizer during the summer. Using it as an eye serum was just a huge bonus!
This stuff delivers! Its pale yellow color actually neutralizes redness surprisingly well. As an eye serum, it absorbs quickly and really plumps up my fine lines. I can apply concealer within a few minutes, unlike thicker creams that take forever to sink in. Because of my oily skin, I've found I don't always need to apply moisturizer on top of this. It leaves my skin soft, plump, and matte, which is a must for me. I would definitely repurchase this!

Lightweight and evening
Purchased

This stuff evens out my skin tone and goes on easily. I wanted to invest in an anti-aging component to my skincare routine (I am super pale and therefore wrinkle-prone), but I didn't want to go all out with retinoids just yet. This stuff is gentle on my skin, which now feels fuller, firmer and more even. It has a slight smell but it goes away after the product sinks in.

I enjoyed this antioxidant serum, though I cannot account for whether it made a difference in the time I used my sample. I did find that my skin looked clearer and was less red, which I assume is as a result of using this product.

A little goes a long way
Purchased

My first introduction was a sample in my Bb- although pricey I decided to splurge as I was impressed with the sample tests; I use a thin layer of Paula's RESIST ever morning before applying my moisturizer , then I apply my foundation which glides on smoothly; results a seamless flawless finish

Love PC.
Purchased

I have been using Paula's Choice skin care for years and I rarely, if ever, use any other brand. This is a newer product in their line and it is the quality I have learned to expect from PC. I use this as a nighttime serum after I cleanse and exfoliate.

Add this to the Vitamin C serum
Purchased

My sister recommended adding the two together and it still remains light weight and absorbs quickly. I use it in the morning prior to applying my makeup. The price is right for both products.

awesome for eye area!
Purchased

I stopped buying eye creams,because a really good antioxidant serum can be used instead plus all over face as well. This immediately absorbs into the skin so I use more than probably necessary,but I just love it. Absolutely fragrance free and my skin never is irritated, even under the eyes. My skin is very sensitive and will water easily with other products. Y skin just looks so much better after using.

BEST PRODUCT EVER
SampledPurchased

I LOVE this serum!! I was always struggling between anti-aging and acne products. Paula's Choice RESIST Ultra-Light Super Antioxidant Serum is magic! It absorbs quickly, and doesn't make me break out (in fact, it helps fight breakouts). I've also noticed the fine lines around my eyes have gotten less noticeable. Great product! Highly recommend!
