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.

Doesn't get the job done
Sampled

I use this around my eyes and across the bridge of my nose to try to fend off wrinkles before they're too bad. The product goes on smoothly and doesn't leave a greasy or lotion-y feeling but after using daily for two weeks I haven't noticed a difference in my skin. This may be because I only use it once per day instead of twice, but who knows. I'll try twice per day and see what happens.

not for sensitive skin
Sampled

I don't really need an eye cream because I'm only in my early 20's but I tried it a few nights just to see if I noticed any difference. I got a small hive of to the side of my eye that is still healing... I have super sensitive skin. I wouldn't recommend this product if you have a sensitivity at all.

Great for Anti-Aging
Sampled

Awesome if you are looking for a lightweight/oil-free serum with anti-aging properties. I would definitely recommend this to my mother who is 54. Since I am only 26 I do not have much use for it and prefer something more moisturizing.

Not for me...

This product was not for me at all. I am not into anti aging creams and wish that I didn't get them in my box.

Not for me.
Sampled

I tend to take pretty good care of my skin, so an anti-aging serum isn't really part of my routine. I'd rather stick with just moisturizing and avoiding the sun. While this WAS non-greasy and light, it's just not for me.

Not moisturizing at all
Sampled

I used this product around my eyes and my skin instantly started burning. Followed up with moisturizer (as recommended) and woke up the next morning with red, dry skin. Lasted a good 24 hrs before my skin felt normal again.

not for me

I did not see any difference with this product. If anything, it made me slightly shinier than usual. It feels very light going on but doesn't seem to have any real effect.
