Burned my skin!
from Tucson, az
Thank god I got this as a sample the second I put this on my face it burned and the area I applied it to turned red! I knew I should have done a spot test first but normally Paula's choice products don't do that to me. If you have really sensitive skin like me I suggest getting a sample or skipping it. I can tolerate hydroquinone but I use it as a spot treatment. I got this sample hoping I could use it all over my face. Just as a reference I am allergic to chemical sunscreens and bismuth oxychloride.

Didn't work at all
By micellar water

About Me Beauty Conscious, Minimalist
I used this alone and with the Resist C15 Super Booster. I'm convinced it didn't do anything. I didn't see an improvement when I used it by itself and the very slight improvement I saw with when I used it with the booster was probably solely due to the booster. It has finely-milled pearl shimmer which causes the instant-lifting effect. If you want a subtle glow, it'd be good for that. At least it has a nice texture and it didn't break me out.

I used a sample of this brightener a few nights ago and unfortunately woke up with two new blemishes. I think it might be the mica, as I use a serum from PC with many of the same ingredients with no problems, and I have had trouble with "illuminating" products containing mica in the past. I have 40 year-old, very sensitive skin with mild rosacea.

Not much effect
from San Francisco, CA
About Me Minimalist
I've used this for a few months and agree with some other users that while it does have some temporary, instant silky/glowy effect on skin at the time of application, there is no long term effect. Brown spots and wrinkles remain the same with no change. But the product does give you a mild "instant radiance" that it claims to give you for a moment. Can work as a good primer under foundation.

Update: Speeds Up Lightening with Hydroquinone
from Houston, TX
I wanted to add an update to my previous post. I had been using a 10% glycolic acid + 2% Hydroquinone product for a couple of months before I began using the Resist Brightening Treatment consistently. The combination seems to have sped up the lightening effect on my existing sun spots. So I think this has a synergistic effect with the Hydroquinone. A very stubborn spot under my eye, that resisted IPL is now almost gone since using this combination of ingredients! Awesome!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Didn't do anything for me
from New Jersey
I used to whole tube and didn't see any difference in my skin, especially with my brown spots. Will not be purchasing again.

I use as a daytime eye cream underneath sunscreen
I already use other skin brightening treatments at night but wanted to try something light to use during the day as a primer/light serum before my sunscreen. I found it was a little too shiny for my oily skin, however i did notice it worked perfectly under my eyes before the sunscreen and concealer. you only need a tiny amount and let it sink in and set. Love it!

from Boise, ID
This product took my skin to a whole new level. I mix a small amount in my palm with Resist C15 and Resist hyaluronic acid booster before applying. The result is radiant skin that looks and feels younger. I love it! Have been using it for over a year now with continued excellent results.

It does brighten skin, but only temporarily. I see no long-term effect. Pleasant but not worth the price for makeup.
