Ultra light, smooth skin
By science chick

About Me Beauty Expert
Comments about RESIST Ultra-Light Antioxidant Serum - 1 oz:
My skin type is normal/combination leaning toward oily/combination during the summer. Even though genetically I'm blessed with great skin (Asian =D ), I'm still very very conscious about skincare products and how to take care of my skin. Resist ultra-light super serum is great to layer during summer day before sunscreen. Non-greasy, moisturize, and comfortable on the skin . I cannot recommend enough Paula's choice products. I've selected some products from PC and put together the entire skincare routine by myself. I'm ecstatic with the result ! I'm used to so many high-end and cult-following skincare: Tatcha, SK-II, Guerlain, Sekkisei, 3Lab you name it and finally settle down with Paula's choice. Reasons? Consistent with quality and affordable. My skin still looks and feel great without breaking the bank. I cannot ask for more.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

About Me Beauty Conscious
I love this already. Noticed some people said they had breakouts. I've had some but thats because it is working and pulling impurities up to the surface. I noticed and improvement in my overall skin in just a few days. I have large pores and I really have noticed my skin looking better. Blemishes will calm down. Stick with it!

Not for me
I thought this would be a good add to my skin care routine, but unfortunately I caused me to break out. Once I stopped using it my skin cleared up which is why i think this is the culprit. Maybe it would be better suited to people with less oily skin.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

One of PC's best serums
from Los Angles, CA
About Me Minimalist
I have tried almost all Paula's Choice serums, and Resist Ultra-Light Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum is one of the best of the brand (my other favorite is Calm Repairing Serum). The Resist product is a silky liquid, fragrance free but with a fresh and natural scent. The packaging is a tube with a narrow tip which works well for dispensing small amounts, and can be cut open to extract the last precious drops. I have normal to oily combination skin, and I found this product to be a bit too heavy for day time use. Although it sinks in fairly well, its viscous texture doesn't allow it to spread as thinly as some other serums I have tried, and it does leave some stickiness. Having said that, it is superior to all others I've tried as a night serum, out-performing some highly coveted premium brands for a fraction of the cost. Resist Ultra-Light adds a boost of antioxidants and moisture after applying AHA or Retin-A and before moisturizer. I find that when I use this serum, the other skin care steps in my routine are more effective. My skin feels healthy and plumped, soothed after acid or treatment, and my moisturizer has more longevity through the night. I will definitely repurchase!

Best serum I've ever used!
from Toronto, Canada
I had been looking for an effective serum for awhile, and I decided to try this one out because it looked great and doesn't have palm oil in it. I am beyond thrilled with this product. I put it on daily, and it really has made a difference in my skin. I use it in conjunction with PC Earth Source Naturals cleanser, toner, and moisturizer and this combination has been amazing (I do really think the serum has been a great boost to my skin!). I've noticed that my skin is more consistent in terms of colour and texture; I don't get blackheads as much if at all; my skin is really well moisturized; and the lines that I have a bit of (they're not that noticeable, but I wanted to do preventative skin care) are actually DIMINISHED. It goes on really nicely too and smells great. I always notice a difference in my skin when I put it on versus when I don't. I am so pleased with this product and would definitely recommend it! I like the inclusion of hyaluronic acid in the formula, too! I really, really wanted to incorporate that ingredient into my skincare routine as I had heard so much good stuff about it. It's pricey (especially as I live in Canada), but it's totally worth it. Give it a try!

I have been using Paula's products on and off for many years. My skin has gone through many changes. Recently I started using this serum. I have been struggling with oily skin that can get dry with certain products. I also have clogged pores constantly. I am always giving myself facials which sometimes makes my skin look worse and causes red marks or blemishes to surface. I had this product in my bathroom cabinet and decided to try it again. I am so glad I did. I have only been using it for 5 days but I haven't needed to do a facial and my skin has cleared immensely and continues to look better each day. It's a life changer. A few weeks ago I switched to Paula's Skin Balancing Cleanser with great results as well. I use the Calm 1% BHA on my forehead to help keep the breakouts away with a little bit of benzoyl peroxide. Works good. I use a simple 2% BHA lotion on my jaw line to keep my pores from getting clogged. I am not sure if I am allowed to mention another company. Paula rated it well for exfoliation. As you can see I have crazy skin. But if you have oily, clogged pores, definitely give this a try. It is a bit runny but it blends in nicely and leaves my skin soft and matte. I have tried every product out there and this definitely works!!! I hope she never changes the formula or discontinues it!!! I love it!!!

from Richmond, VA
I had several samples of this and thought it might be beneficial to add a serum to my skincare routine (which is entirely comprised of PC products), so I used this for 4 nights in a row. Unfortunately it broke me out; I have combination skin that's prone to redness and is also very sensitive. Fortunately this does not seem to have exacerbated the redness, but on the third morning I woke up with some blemishes along my jawline and I never suffer from breakouts on that area of my face (usually only have to worry about that once a month, and then it's just a few spots on my chin). It also caused some dryness around my mouth. I'm glad I only purchased samples of this, I won't be buying a full tube.

perfect! just what I was looking for
from Boston, MA
I have tricky skin (sensitive, dry/combination, acne prone, large pores, VERY easily congested) so I've been working on perfecting my already good routine (thank you, Paula's Choice!). I recently added this serum and I could not be happier with it. I am very prone to blackheads and this does not clog my pores at all and it adds a small amount of moisture that I felt that I was missing. The serum is very easy to use and a very small amount goes a long way. I've only been using the serum for a couple weeks and I've already noticed that my skin is looking brighter and healthier. As soon as I know how long it takes for me to use a whole tube I'll be signing up for auto delivery because I never want to be without it!

Good Basic Toner
from Charleston, SC
This is just a good basic serum. I have used two bottles and I haven't notice a significant improvement that I have seen with other serums. On the plus side, It has helped get my acne under control. Its good when couple with the booster. I hate the bottle it comes in. I never stands up and the product is so thin that it fills up the cap if you are not quick enough tightening it on. I love the rest of the resist line, I am just not sold on the serum.
