Slow but steady
from Boston, MA
Comments about Power Couple: RESIST C15 + RESIST Skin Brightening Treatment - Complete Duo:
I agree with Elle - you need to be willing to commit to these products. The results are NOT instantaneous, but worth the wait.I'd struggled with acne for over 10 years before I found Paula's Choice products, which basically saved my skin. Once the products cleared up my acne, my face was still riddled with acne scars from all my years of poor skin care, so I tried these products. Again - you will not see instant results. You've just gotta believe. I think it took at least 6-8 weeks for me to see results (I used the products morning and night). But when I saw the payoff, the wait was definitely worth it. My scarring, except for a few pesky spots, is pretty much completely gone. I swear these are miracle products! A little pricey, but sooo worth it. Don't hesitate, buy them!One tip though: wash your hands after using! The skin in between the finger I mixed the products together with started to stain orange. I could not for the life of me figure out why, until I remembered that I was using the Vitamin C product.

Amazing if you use this correctly
from Wa state
I have used this for several months using the following steps to ensure success. I would like to add that I used this spring and summer of 2015 and saw no results but now I feel that was due to my unreasonable expectations and not using it properly. I spent two hours in the sun minimum daily, and rarely used any sunscreen during my first round. I baked in the sun through my 20s. I am now 35 and do not, however I am a hobby gardener and spend my time outdoors. This time I did the following:1. Began using in September 2015 in Seattle, still sunny, always applying a high spf during the day and reapplying if I would be in the sun.2. I feel this is SO important. Take a photo of your skin closeup, outside in bright conditions. 3. Use this combo twice a day every single day. 4. Always always use an spf even under clouds.5. Don't introduce too many new products and try to avoid dryness6. Try to use the entire contents before wondering if it's working. Wait 6-8 weeks or longer and then go outside in similar conditions as the first photo and take another one with no makeup, up close. I have used this for almost 16 weeks now. I took photos twice, one after 8 weeks and another after 8 more. The difference between the first and last are significant. If expecting results from any skin lightening or products meant to fade sun damage you definitely have to be ready to commit to it. It's not a $5000 laser treatment so I think you have to be reasonable in expectations. This I am happy to say, exceeded mine. I just reordered and will continue to use it. I also use the retinol boost at night. Other than that my routine is quite simple. I no longer layer dozens of products.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I am over 50 years old and have been dealing with Melasma and oily, break out prone skin since my late 30s. After chatting with a PC representative about my skin concerns, I was sent samples of the skin care line including these two products about a year ago. These 2 products along with the Super Light Wrinkle Defense sunscreen have changed my life. It faded enough I no longer need foundation! I just reordered and also bought a sample of the 25% Vit. Bonus-PC products never break me out!

Before using these products, I never really knew what people meant when they said they woke up to "glowing skin," but after a couple of days of using them my skin just had this look about it that seemed somehow healthier and more radiant. After a month of using them, my acne hyperpigmentation has faded and my skin still glows. I go through occasional bouts of insomnia that normally leave my skin looking tired and dull- but since I started using these products my skin looks great with no sleep!

Works wonders with time
By Hayley N.
These products have done wonders lightening my acne scarring. I'd estimate that after using these consistently for ~1 month together (2-3 for the Brightening serum alone), my acne scarring had lightened by 65-70%.My only complaint is that the C serum stinks. I hate how it makes my face smell. But it works so well that it's totally worth it!

I bought this set to treat brown spots and to prevent new one. I love the silky and non oily texture of Resist pure radiance skin brightening treatment. I add 2 drops of Resist C15 super booster together with the treatment and my sensitive, breakout prone and combination skin feels so smooth. Will definitely buy the second lot when I finish them.

Not for me
These two products are not worth the extra steps. The C15 liquid is messy to use alone. Mixing it with the brightening treatment wasn't easy either. Plus they didn't fade the red marks.

I have tried the Resist C15 with a number of serums, but honestly, C15 + the Resist Radiance Skin Brightening Treatment is the perfect combo! The textures really work well together. I mix them in my palm and I can easily wear them under any sunscreen and makeup every morning. Even my dermatologist asked what I have been using, as my melasma is pretty much non-existent after a few months of the routine. Actually.... my dermatologist asks quite often what I use to make my skin look so perfect.

I switched from the skin lightening formula that has hydroquinone and salicylic acid to this power couple, but it wasn't for me. I gave it a decent shot and made it through almost both of the tube and the bottle. I find it a bit irritating and my acne has worsened. I'll switch back to my old one.
I've been using this combo for 1 week and can already see a difference in my skin tone. It hasn't had enough time to work on the brown spots, but overall my skin looks more radiant and healthy. I've been using it twice daily.
