What does it do?
Instantly provides a more luminous complexion, while an exclusive blend of skin-replenishing ingredients and antioxidants focus their natural energy to help visibly improve multiple signs of aging, giving skin back its radiant youthful glow.

Irritated my eyes

      Comments about RESIST Pure Radiance Skin Brightening Treatment:

      After several weeks of my eyes feeling dried out and irritated, I went to my optometrist who said the insides of my eyelids were dry and flaky. She suggested it might be from a product I'd been using on my skin. I stopped using all products and it cleared up. After trying them out again one by one I realized it was this product that was causing the problems with my eyes. Not sure which ingredient is the problem but I won't be using this again.

        Comments about RESIST Pure Radiance Skin Brightening Treatment:

        I have combination, acne-prone skin. My skin often looks dull due to stress and lack of sleep. Since I've been using this (about 3 or 4 months now), a number of people have complimented me on my overall appearance - like they can't quite put their finger on what's different. I've also noticed that, while I still have breakouts on my chin due to stress and hormones, they're not nearly as red and angry as they have been in the past. I wasn't sure if it was this product, but I get lazy with my nighttime routine, and this is the only thing aside from my cleanser that I'm using on a daily basis religiously.

        I wanted to wait to review once the hot and humid weather hit. This holds up well and doesn't turn greasy or feel heavy. This is one of my all-time favourite Paula's Choice products.

          Comments about RESIST Skin Brightening Treatment - 1 oz:

          I have combination skin, with a very oily t-zone. I use this product instead of a moisturizer. It brightens and soothes my skin without causing oiliness. It also serves as an excellent primer; my foundation sets to a smooth, matte finish. Despite imperfections, my skin looks pretty flawless and Resist Skin Brightening Treatment is big part of the reason why. Please don't ever discontinue this product.

            I have/do use PC products exclusively but never bothered to incorporate this one. I truly feel that my skin has a nicer tone after using this product for over a month. I am 56 with dryness and redness in the cheek area...I use only in the morning and will continue to replenish this product.

            My skin looks better than ever. Specifically, it looks so bright and smooth, I sometimes can't believe it! I loved this product the first couple months for it's functionality, and now that time has passed I love this product for it's long term benefits. I have to credit the brightness and smoothness of my skin to this, as this is the one skin product, apart from facewash, that I use every single day. I mix up toners... use Retina and other exfoliants occasionally... but this is my daily skin product. Please strongly consider giving this product a try!

              This product has made a huge difference in my skin. It's noticeably brighter and even toned. At 53, with dry, sensitive skin, there has been so much improvement that a tinted moisturizer is all I need- no need for heavier foundations. This is a product I don't want to be without!

                I noticed results after the first application, I woke up to brighter, smoother looking skin!
                I turn 50 this year and suddenly my skin looked dull. I have been a user of Retin A for years but I needed to amp up my routine. I have been a fan of Paula's Choice for a long time, and just added her Vitamin C and toner, I can't wait to see what the combination will do for me!

                I received this along with the Retinol and Vitamin C serum ( trio) for Brightening. By process of deduction I figured out which one of the products gave me a Humongous Pustule on my nose :(. This one. I even gave it a second chance, and now I have milia ( little whiteheads) all over my cheeks. I unfortunately will have to Return it. The other 2 products are great!

                  I used two tubes of this product I do think it helped a bit with overall brighting and helping my post acne marks heal faster. Its very lightweight and easy to layer with other products. It wears well during the day under SPF and cosmetics or at night with other serums. I love how quickly it sinks into the skin and dries but its also a hydrating serum, I would buy again if I think my skin is starting to look dull or blotchy.

                  Comments about RESIST Skin Brightening Treatment - 1 oz:

                  I received this as a free bonus gift with an order I placed on Cyber Monday. Being as I've hated every primer-like product I've ever tried, I expected this to end up being rendered to me "giveaway" cosmetics drawer, but something unexpected happened; I fell in love! First, it didn't clog my pores the way silicone-laden primers have in the past. I gave it 2 weeks to prove itself before leaving this review. I apply about a pea size amount all over my fave and eye area before applying makeup. I have moderate hyperpigmentation and didn't expect this to make a difference. I love how invisible this feels. It's super light and slips across the skin without leaving a slick or tacky feel. It doesn't make makeup ball up. It actually feels serum like, yet smooths like a primer. I notice a difference in skin smoothness and brightness when I wear this, either on full makeup, or little makeup days. It makes my skin look better. Last night (after two weeks of use) I'm beginning to notice my pigmented areas (chloasma) lightening a bit and blending into the rest of my skin tone. The effect is subtle, but any little bit of improvement helps, since I can't have laser and I have to use caution with hydraquinone. Overall, this is a 5 star product I will be reordering! Please don't discontinue this product, Paula! It rocks!
