    So satisfied!
    • 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
    • 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!

    Perfect couple
    • 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.

    Perfect combo
    • 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.

    Not for me
    • 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.

    Works beautifully!
    • 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.

    • I had my eyes on C15 serum from the day it was launched but was waiting for my current vit C serum to finish. After considering all my needs, I decided to buy this combo. In the past, use of C serums made me quite content with my skin. But within 5 days of using this combo, I was pleasantly surprised to see the huge difference it made. I don't know which product from this couple is doing the magic. Do I want to know? Yes. Do I want to eliminate one to find answer, No!

    Good Results but not for me
    • I really liked the way this combo worked in regards to smoothing my skin, evening out my skin tone, and even plumping, I didn't get the improvement I really wanted - in the red marks from my acne breakouts. To be fair, some of the smaller marks faded, but unfortunately they are still visible, not to mention the larger marks. I used the combo everyday once a day for about three weeks and then everyday twice a day for about a month and a half. So while I did get some good results - it's not for me

    Ain't No Lie Baby Bye, Bye, Bye Brown Spots!
    • I have only been using this combo for 2 weeks and the results on brown spots have been significant. I had a patch of stubborn brown spots on my upper cheek bone. They were so bad, they were pretty hard to cover up. The spots have been breaking up and starting to become less and less noticeable each day. I don't know which product is doing it, or if it is the combination of using them both. Whichever it is, I'll take it!

    finally got brown spots faded
    • I was using the Radiance Skin Brightening treatment in the trio pack with Rentinol Serum and BHA9. I found that my brown spots didn't get lighter at all and gave a negative review of the Skin Brightening Treatment . I added this Resist C15 Super Booster to the routine, using BHA9 less often, and my brown spots are quickly fading. I got this radiant natural glow; the crepey skin around the eyes softened. I feel really pretty without makeup! Boo to C15 lasting 3 months after open.

How quickly will I see results?

Your skin will take on a more luminous, smoother look instantly. With daily use, you can expect to see an improvement in uneven skin tone and brown spots within weeks. As with any product meant to improve discolorations, daily use of a sunscreen rated SPF 15 or greater is essential to achieve optimal results. Ongoing use is necessary to maintain results and keep new discolorations from forming.

Is it OK to mix the Resist C15 Super Booster and the Resist Pure Radiance Brightening Treatment with my sunscreen?

No, you should never mix any skincare product with a sunscreen because it will dilute the sunscreen, making it less effective. For best results, mix Resist C15 Super Booster with the Resist Pure Radiance Brightening Treatment each morning and follow with your daytime moisturizer with sunscreen. In any daytime skincare routine, sunscreen should always be the last product applied.

Is the Resist C15 Super Booster and Resist Pure Radiance Brightening Treatment duo suitable for breakout-prone skin?

Yes! The vitamin C in the Resist C15 Super Booster plus antioxidants and repairing ingredients in both products work to reduce the inflammation and redness from acne, as well as encourage healing of red marks from past breakouts.

Is the Resist C15 Super Booster and Resist Pure Radiance Brightening Treatment duo suitable for rosacea-affected skin?

Maybe. The concern is the amount of vitamin C in the Resist C15 Super Booster, which can be too potent for some cases of rosacea. We suggest sampling this product to see how your skin responds. Generally speaking, though, vitamin C’s anti-inflammatory action on skin can be helpful for rosacea.

Resist Pure Radiance Skin Brightening Treatment should be effective and suitable for someone with rosacea. However, those with rosacea always need to be careful about any skincare product they use because even the gentlest formulas may cause a reaction.

Is Resist C15 Super Booster and Resist Pure Radiance Skin Brightening Treatment duo safe for all ethnicities?

Yes. Both are safe and provide brightening benefits for skin of any color or ethnic background.

My skin tends to be sensitive to vitamin C but I still want to use the Resist C15 Super Booster. Will applying this product a few times per week still be beneficial?

Yes. Although once- or twice-daily application is recommended, you will absolutely still see benefits from Resist C15 Super Booster if it’s applied less often. As with any skincare product, you should pay attention to how your skin responds and adjust usage (or products) accordingly.

I received my C15 and the internal air restrictor isn’t in the bottle—it’s on the dropper. How do I insert it?

The internal air restrictor, as you noticed, is now packaged separately to reduce the likelihood of the bottle leaking during transit. There are two ways to insert it into your C15, and both are easy!

Option #1: Remove the seal from your C15, insert the dropper (do not remove the air restrictor from the glass stem) and screw the dropper cap closed. The cap will appear to tilt unevenly, but keep screwing it down and the internal air restrictor will snap into place. All done!

Option #2: Remove the seal from your C15, and then pull the air restrictor off of the glass stem of the dropper. Push the pointed end of the air restrictor into the open C15 bottle, applying pressure until it snaps into place.

We also have a handy “How-to” video on our YouTube channel that provides visuals on both of the above options. Once the air restrictor is secure, it will not come loose or fall out—and now your C15 is ready for use!

Can you tell me more about the Resist C15 packaging, i.e. "packaged to minimize light and air exposure"?

A great deal of thought went into the packaging for this product. Because Resist C15 is a water-light liquid, a bottle and dropper-tip applicator were the only way to go for measuring the perfect amount per use while ensuring the product wasn't messy to dispense. To protect the potency of the formula, we selected tinted glass to prevent UV exposure and an internal restrictor to drastically reduce airflow into the bottle when the dropper is removed. In rigorous testing, these packaging safeguards were more than adequate to preserve the effectiveness of the Resist C15 Super Booster. For maximum potency, we advise using C15 Super Booster within three months of opening.
