      I found the product too thick and difficult to distribute on the face. I didn't find it more effective than Paula's C15 booster. I personally don't think I'd buy this product again.

        I'm not generally a fan of serums and special treatments, but this one really does seem to help my post-acne red marks. I need to apply diligently--2x day or at least daily--but if I keep up with it, ugly red marks from deep cystic acne do noticeably fade.

            I have bought this product several times, and just received a fresh tube. The consistency of this tube is different -- it is much thinner and more watery. I was not aware that the formula was changed, and perhaps it is just this batch. I have found this product helpful in reducing brown spots, if used religiously. I will see how this new tube, which seems very different. works, and whether or not it is as effective as the previous tubes I used.

            I still have occasional breakouts and I read a review of this product, saying it healed picked acne, and would reduce red marks and lingering spots from blemishes..... I took a chance, and I could not be happier! Just as another reviewer stated, I put this on a red mark left from a recent breakout and in the morning, I could not believe my eyes. The red mark and flaky skin were practically gone! It was like new skin appeared magically overnight. I have since put this on older red marks and some brown spots and they are fading! The only thing I wish is that this was a bit more affordable.

            This product delivers on its promise. It will break up dark spots of HYPERPIGMENTATION from past blemishes, sun spots, melasma. 3 SUGGESTIONS BELOW:
            Use everyday, every other week, under sunscreen. See the difference in 1 month.
            Use it as a spot treatment.
            Apply toner with fingers, then take 1/2 pea size of this and dot it on problem areas, use slip from toner to spread it around entire face! Can you say "BRIGHTENER"?!
            Be creative, create your own way of using this wonderfully formulated product!

            Healed Picked Acne Overnight!

              Comments about RESIST 25% Vitamin C Spot Treatment:

              No, you shouldn't pick at acne. Of course you shouldn't. No one should. But everyone does at some point, and if you're anything like me, you regret it immediately.

              I was using this for age spots (which it has worked well for, as long as I keep using my sunscreen daily), and accidentally put some on a picked spot. Woke up in the morning and the skin was HEALED. Still a little red and tender, but holy cow! HEALED. Fresh baby skin. I was amazed and thrilled.

              I'm not saying go crazy picking at your face, but I have begun using this along with PC's wonderful BHA products on any acne that pops up. And it helps the redness and helps heal it quickly. This is now a must have in my skincare routine. I'll take healing acne over diminishing age spots or wrinkles any day. So the fact that it also helps with age spots (can't say yet if it helps with wrinkles) is a huge plus. The only downside is cost. It's expensive! But it works!

              Comments about RESIST 25% Vitamin C Spot Treatment - 0.5 oz:

              This was my go-to way to heal blemishes and calm them. I recently bought another tube and it is yellowy in color (it's always been white) and has a different consistency (drier than before) than previous tubes I've bought. It doesn't go on as smoothly or seem to be as effective. I am hoping this is a fluke batch/tube and I hope I can get another one with the original formula.

                I received a sample size of this product and I do feel like it works. It seems to be fading my acne marks that are still on the pink side (my acne lingers and can be stubborn to fade post marks). I don't know how effective this would be on darker marks. I am definitely using less concealer and foundation though the price point seems slightly high for a half ounce of product. I am also a budget shopper so that's just my opinion. If you have any freshly broken skin it does burn momentarily, but that doesn't bother me. Also I can't confirm any change in wrinkles, I don't really have any except for a significant expression line on my forehead and fine lines under my eyes (which this product cannot be used on eyes). I feel like if your main concern is wrinkles a retinol cream would be a better choice. OVERALL I think this product is great for lighter acne marks, a bit expensive, and underrated. I am considering purchasing the full size.

                      Love using this on my crows feet and specific areas. This is kind of a strange consistency but I would say as long as you aren't planning on putting this all over you will love it. Remember to pat not smear this. I really notice a difference when I use it on my wrinkles. I tried using this to brighten a dark spot and it worked well after a week or so.
