Resist Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum, for All Skin Types is designed to complement my Resist Barrier Repair Moisturizer, and works to target the needs of aging skin. This serum supplies skin with an efficacious amount of stabilized vitamin C, a cell-communicating peptide, and other potent, proven antioxidants in a base formula that’s neither matte nor emollient. It is suitable for sensitive skin because it does not contain retinol. Works beautifully as a foundation primer, and may be applied to face, neck, and chest.

Infuse skin with this unique mixture of antioxidants and anti-irritants which help skin heal, create new collagen, produce healthier skin cells, and improve resilience while creating a natural finish that is neither emollient nor matte.

Disclosure: In addition to reviewing thousands of cosmetic products from hundreds of brands over the past 30 years, Paula also has her own line of products called Paula's Choice. Paula and her team's goal is to help you find the best products possible for your skin whether they are from Paula's Choice or some other product line. Paula's commitment to this is so strong she is the only cosmetics company owner in the world that recommends products other than her own. Paula and the Paula's Choice Research Team formulate our products to meet or exceed the criteria we use to review products from every other brand on this site. We review all products the same way using the same research, objective comments, and praise no matter whose product it is.

Paula's Choice was created in 1995 in response to the many readers who asked Paula to develop her own products. Given Paula's unique overview of the cosmetics industry, 30+ years of research, and earnest desire to help people find the best products for their skin-care needs, creating her own products was a natural extension of her work. Paula's Choice range of products are designed to meet the needs and preferences of just about every skin type and concern imaginable using only proven ingredients substantiated by published research.

Paula's Choice products provide:

  • State-of-the-art formulas based on reliable, published skin-care research
  • Proven effective solutions for wrinkles, acne, rosacea, and sensitive skin
  • Gentle yet effective products for those seeking a natural skin-care routine
  • Fragrance-free formulas (because it is what's best for your skin)
  • Cruelty-free formulas: Paula's Choice does not test on animals during any stages of product development—nor do we contract with third parties to conduct animal testing on our behalf
  • Environmentally-friendly products that feature minimalist packaging that ensures product efficacy
  • 100% Customer Satisfaction Guarantee from our world-class Customer Service Team

Paula's Choice products and Paula's work is routinely praised by noted dermatologists and other professionals. New York-based dermatologist Dr. Debra Jaliman stated that "I have a lot of respect for Paula Begoun and the way she thoroughly researches her subject. Her recommendations about cosmetics and skin care are deservedly influential." Eminent Seattle-based dermatologist Dr. Brandith Irwin concurs: "She takes a complex subject and makes it easy to understand!"

    Oily consistency good for dry skin, didn't see results
    • Used this regularly along with other resist products and high spf sunscreen for 6 months. Dark spots didn't fade, fine lines look the same. A few new dark spots have appeared. But the oily consistency makes it a good moisturizer for people who are dealing with lines and wrinkles. Because of this texture, this is the only Resist product I would consider buying again if I want to hedge my bets that the ingredients will actually make a difference in the long run. But I saw no improvement.

    Complements my not so moisturizing sunscreen
    • I love that this is moisturizing enough for me to use under my not so moisturizing tinted mineral sunscreen (Cotz) for the perfect combination of moisture, tinted color with sheer coverage, and vitamin C for added benefit to my SPF. I've been looking for a long time to find the right emollience and moisture in a daytime serum, have added oils to multiple serums for moisture, powders and bronzes to take away shine and now I'm done with all that. This serum plus my SPF and I'm out the door!

    A somewhat confused product
    • This serum is probably best suited to use at night. The consistency is somewhere between serum-in -oil and a face primer. It feels very silicone heavy hence my comparison to a face primer. I would definitely prefer something lighter for daytime use even though my skin is dry.

    Resist Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum
    • I love the texture of this serum! I am new to serums, so I am confused with the slight tingling feeling that I am getting from this serum. My skin is very sensitive and prone to redness. Could the vitamin C be causing this mild tingling/irritation? Is this too much for my skin? The tingling goes away about five minutes after application.

    Fabulous!
    • Omgoodness! What a difference this has made to my a.m. routine! I use this religiously and my dry/normal skin is loving it! I use this in the a.m and use the RESIST Retinol Serum in the p.m. and, so far, these two are making a definite difference in my skin...thank you Paula and team!

    Very heavy
    • I found this extremely thick and oily - definitely only for the driest skin. It caused little whiteheads to appear on my cheeks. Not easy to spread. I have combination skin with very dry cheeks.

    Thank you for your review! We are sorry to learn this wasn't a fit for you, but as you have combination skin you may find our RESIST Ultra-Light Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum a better fit. The RESIST Ultra-Light was designed for your skin type, and is a water-based (re: weightless) formula. Please contact our Customer Care Team for help with an exchange/credit and samples to experiment with!
