Love this serum!

About Me Beauty Conscious
Absorbs well into my skin. Keep my skin feeling hydrated but not greasy. I have dry skin, but am prone to occasional breakouts and this serum has not exacerbated that issue at all.
Hydrating but made me break out
About Me Minimalist
I have extremely dry sensitive skin with moderately severe rosacea. I tried this serum for a few days and it did seem to help with the dryness, but it made my skin break out like crazy. It also felt slippery and greasy on my skin for the longest time, it kind of felt like it never fully absorbed. I suspect these issues are possibly due to dimethecone being one of the first ingredients. Which is a shame, because there seem to be a lot of beneficial antioxidants in this serum. If dimethecone doesn't bother you and you have dry skin then I could see this being a good product. It just didn't work for me.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Effective and non-irritating
from Los Angeles
About Me Minimalist, Skin Care Professional
I was looking for a serum with vitamin C to help reduce dark marks and spots, and picked this since PC products are usually well formulated without being too expensive. It does have a strange texture (the silicone base, I assume), but I kept using it regularly, and did see marked improvement to my skin tone over three months. (A few minor breakouts when I first started, but I think this was just a normal purge, to be expected with Vit. C)I have very sensitive skin and this did not irritate it at all. I hope they never discontinue this since it's the only serum I've found that brightens my spots without irritating!

helped with my rosacea
By Paula's Fan
After using this product with Resist Barrier Repair moisturizer and AHA/BHA lotion I found that it did not add anything. I did not have any problem with the product and it didn't feel greasy (it feels pretty much like any silicone serum out there) but it just made no difference whatsoever. I didn't repurchase and am not missing it at all. If you just like having an extra step in your beauty routine then this could work. Otherwise I'd suggest to save money.

Swollen, itchy eyes
About Me Beauty Expert
Add me to the list of ones who are stuck with swollen eyelids and terrible under eye itching. First time I've ever had a reaction to a product. It's been almost a week and my eye area is still dry and itchy. Enough of us have complained about having had an eye reaction here and at other sites that this problem needs to be looked at.
Love the feel
I use the product at night. I received a sample and thought I would try it. I love the way it feels and goes on my skin so smoothly. I was worried I might break out, but I did not, and it made my skin feel soft. I really like the product.

I really wanted to like this serum since I do love Paula's products. This serum felt a bit greasy to me, and did not absorb very well. It also caused several whiteheads, which I do not normally get. My skin is dry and sensitive, but not breakout prone.

Made me breakout!!
Tried a sample for a week, using nightly after toning and exfoliating. I liked the way it felt on my skin and it did make my skin appear softer. However, my acne prone skin did not react well and I ended up breaking out, especially along my chin and around my nose. Can't continue using, and I'd be careful if you have acne prone skin.
