Comments about RESIST Skin Brightening Treatment - 1 oz:
My skin absolutely loves this stuff, and drinks it right in. I use it in combo with a PC antioxidant serum (I switch between a couple depending on the season), and it makes my skin just glow. It doesn't work well to completely fade dark or red spots, but it does help. I've also tried the C Booster, but my skin loves this better and I will continue to use it as long as PC makes it. Love it!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Gives a nice glow
from Berkeley, CA
About Me Minimalist
I'm not sure if it is lightening my melasma, but it gives a really nice healthy glow. I think it's great as a light brightening moisturizer. Several friends have recently told me how great my skin is looking. Still trying to perfect my regime, but I'm really liking the resist 2% bha, followed by this, maybe a light moisturizer, and the weekly 4% bha.

About Me Skin Care Professional
After having used this product for about a month and a half, I've come to the conclusion that I like it and will continue to use it, but also that the results (at least in my case) are very gradual and difficult to track on a short-term basis.Although the product has had some benefit for me, I think that perhaps the customer who benefits most is one concerned with a dull or uneven appearance that isn't sufficiently treated by their BHA/AHA or retinol products.I have tracked some modest improvement in existing hyperpigmentation, but it's difficult to tell except where the skin is thinnest and most delicate (e.g. the under eye area). Also, I've been using the C15 Booster and Vitamin C Spot Treatment regularly on my cheeks, so I can't definitively say how much improvement should be attributed to which product(s) for spots in that area.I'd recommend this product even though I haven't experienced utterly transformative results (spoiled by other PC products, I suppose). Paula and Team are pretty upfront about hydroquinone being the gold standard treatment ingredient for hyperpigmentation, so I'd try that first if seriously concerned about discoloration. For me this product is more about maintenance and helping to prevent the formation of new dark spots while slowly chipping away at old ones. The quality ingredients that make this a well-rounded, lightly hydrating serum are also a plus.

Didn't work for me
I've just finished a tube of this. Used it twice a day, boosted in spots by C25. I also left one spot untreated. No difference. Didn't do a thing except moisterize.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

It removed all my brown spots.
By Robyn C
from Toronto, Canada
After 7 days enjoying a well deserve vacation in Bahamas, I came back home full of dark spots on my face. I did use SPF and a hat at the beach. Nevertheless, my face was affected by sun exposure. I ordered Resist Skin Brightening, used the product to its very end. Applied the produc day and night religiously. My face never been this clear, I barely use foundation anymore. It works!

Made such a difference!
from Raleigh, NC
About Me Beauty Conscious
I got this treatment as a sample with another order, and after 3 days I had to buy it! I have very pale and sensitive skin. I usually put it on before my face moisturizer at night, and wake up with bright, glowing skin. I'm so glad I tried PC products.

Great for Brightening & Boosts Lighteners
This product is great! I stumbled upon Paula's Choice by reading Beautypedia reviews. In the past six months, every single one of my old products have been replaced by PC! Really nothing is better! First, this is an excellent brightener, it brightens up my dull skin & perfect to brighten my dark circles, though not fully eliminate them. Also, while I dont think it is enough to fade my dark spots, when I used it alone I didnt see a dramatic difference in fading my spots. However, when paired with the Dark Spot Eraser &/or the 25% Vit C Spot Treatment, it is a potent little cocktail for fading dark spots! It is so lightweight and silky, and gives skin a nice glow. My advice: May not be a product to hang your hat on to fade or eliminate dark spots, but when paired with hydroquoinone and potent Vitamin C, it works wonders! Also, if you ever have any questions about a product, how to use it, or product advice, Paula's Choice customer service is awesome! They always answer all my questions quickly!

Didnt see any result

I went though 3 tubes of this treatment for the last 2 years. And honesty I didnt see any result and it sometimes irritated my skin as well. Like all other Paula treatment especially the VC,the oil booster but not this one

Unfortunately, not for me
from Newport News, VA
I tried a sample of this and really liked the way it gave a little glow. Since it's supposed to get rid of brown spots and even the complexion, I decided to buy the full size. Unfortunately, after using for a few days, it made my skin break out. After not using it for a couple of days, my skin is going back to normal. The only good thing about this product for me is that it didn't irritate my sensitive skin . . . just broke it out. I'll be contacting Customer Service about a credit. I'm so disappointed because I love PC products and have used them for several years, but this one isn't for me.

About Me Beauty Conscious, Minimalist
Ok, so I just tried this sample with the AHA 8% gel, and I finally see a slight reduction in the post acne red spots on my cheeks!!!! I am not sure if it was just one or both but I noticed after only 3 days. The reason I got the samples first is because I thought it would only work for like brown aging or sun spots. I use other PC products like BHA 9, BHA 2% liquid, anti-aging moisturizer (helps with post red breakouts) etc. But, even after 4 weeks or so using those this is the first thing that made an actual reduction in the post red acne marks that I saw that fast. Definitely love the product.
