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.

Cleared my cystic acne, ordering full size

Birchbox has allowed me to sample many products I may have not bothered to try on my own, this being one of them. Ever-so-often I discover a treasure and this is one. I received the sample size in an Oily Skin Kit box and recently, began to apply this product each morning under my moisturizer, following an acne scrub. I have been impressed how using this product as a part of a morning routine has led to the practical elimination of my larger cystic acne episodes, allowing me to elude harsher solutions such as internal antibiotics and caustic topical solutions. The Paula's Choice brand has proven trans formative and I will be ordering more in the future.

Love the stuff!

I've never been a fan of serums, but i might get into it after this!!! im loving the stuff, its super lightweight and does not leave that oily/sticky feeling on my skin. I could see the changes on my skin after a few days.
Good Stuff!!

Great for acne prone, combination skin

It's hard to find a serum that works for my sensitive, combination oily, "old" acne prone skin. This puts antioxidants back into my skin and keeps my pores clear! It is a strange color but I don't care! It works great!

Super lightweight
Sampled

I liked how lightweight this felt on my skin. It quickly absorbed and didn't feel disruptive (stinging, etc) to my skin at all. The water based formula helped all of this and is definitely something I want in a serum.

My first serum, but I think I am into serum now

Ok, to be totally honest, I got this sample and misunderstood what it was for, and in a panic after breaking out, I bought the full size.

I've since realized that's not actually to target acne, so as you can imagine it didn't do wonders for me BUT it did make my skin less oily and I can see a difference in my all-over evenness.

So I am satisfied.

Great serum!
Purchased

This makes my skin so soft! And the next morning my face looks fresh and my pores are much smaller. Not to mention that it absorbs well and doesn't make my face feel greasy.

Light and Non-Greasy
Purchased

I really like this superb serum for light moisturizing that doesn't cause breakouts. I'm struggling with mid-40's hormonal acne and this serum does not seem to irritate the issue. It is soothing and sinks into the skin.

Very best
Purchased

I am 27, and my skin is dry, and my pores get clogged very easily. I'm right in the age where I'm starting to look in anti-aging products, and I think I've found the serum for me! I've been using this product for a year+, and it's kept my skin so happy! I love it! It helps prevent breakouts, AND the ingredients have great anti-aging properties. It doesn't do anything to treat my dry skin, but that's what moisturizer is for! Fragrance free, easy to spread out on your skin, and great for sensitive skin; I love this stuff!
