I use as a daytime eye cream underneath sunscreen
About Me Beauty Conscious
Comments about RESIST Skin Brightening Treatment - 1 oz:
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!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

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.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Excellent makeup primer!
from Atlanta, GA
I am pleased with quality of the brightening treatment. I am a very long time Paula's Choice user and try most things she puts out at least once. I've only been using this for about three weeks, so I can't comment on the very long term results, but thus far I can say it is a great addition to my skin care arsenal. Also, this works absolutely beautifully under makeup. I usually use Hourglass's primer which is very expensive. I was in a rush one morning and applied my makeup directly on top of this brightener and was so surprised how it worked even better than my usual primer! And of course the ingredients are far more beneficial for skin, so I'm happy to give up my Hourglass primer for this product. For makeup wearers, it kills two birds with one stone. Thanks Paula & team!

Won't buy again
from New Jersey
I used the whole tube and saw no difference in my skin. My brown spots are still exactly as they were and my skin is neither better, nor worse. I will not buy again.
from Houston, TX
I have used samples of this product off and on for 2 weeks. While I cannot speak to the long term effects (yet), I can say that when worn under my Resist Super Light Moisturizer +SPF, my complexion looks way brighter- like by a shade or two. I don't get an "eagle effect," but I certainly can tell the difference. And the texture is silky, absorbs easily, and plays nice with my other serums and moisturizer. Also seems to play well with my Rx retinoid.Niacinamide and Acetyl Glucosamine (in my opinion) will likely be effective in the long term at preventing further hyperpigmentation. I already use a product with hydroquinone, which Paula says is the "gold standard" for reducing hyperpigmentation that has already appeared. I plan to buy a full sized tube and using this in conjunction with the hydroquinone to maintain the results I see from the hydroquinone product. I really like this product. I will grant a fifth star once I have been using it long term and see the fruits of the "long term relationship."

About Me Beauty Conscious, Skin Care Guru
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!
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.
