    Feels icky
    • I really wanted to use this as my serum because of the ingredients. But it is so thick and sticky, and takes forever to soak in. It feels just like pure vitamin E oil if youve ever tried that. Or pure silicone. Its really gross.

    A forever purchase!
    • I've been using this product for six months and have loved the results! I use it right before my moisturizer at night, and my skin has never looked better! A little goes a very long way, and I'm happy to say that this is a product that I'll use forever.

    Smoother, dewy skin
    • Love this serum. I've been using it twice daily for about a week and my skin is softer and dewy. I have dry, sensitive skin and this product is so smoth and a little bit goes a long way.

    Didn't work for me
    • No results whatsoever, especially for my brown spots. Very disappointed after using Paula's products for many, many years. It seems the new products are not as effective for me as the old favorites.

    The formulation change is disappointing...
    • I found this product when searching for one containing hyuralonic acid, and was very happy with it. But when I purchased it again around a month ago the product was totally different. I looked at the ingredient list only to find that it no longer contained hyuralonic acid. I was extremely disappointed that Paula's Choice would sell it without indicating it was newly formulated. I decided to give it a try to see how it worked, and within a week my face had dry spots again. Very disappointed.

    Hello, and thanks for contacting us! The Resist serum that contains hyaluronic acid is our Resist Ultra-Light Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum, while our Resist Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum does not. Neither has been reformulated.

    One word...Amazing!
    • I can't even begin to thank Paula's Choice enough for the skin I have right now. I have the best skin I've ever had in my life! My skin was good before due to the consistant use of the PC 2% BHA Liquid and the Moisture Boost moisturizer. I don't know what's in this stuff (baby unicorn tears maybe) but my skin is amazing! Over the last month I have noticed a big diff. People keep asking what kind of makeup I use and my response, "I'm not wearing any!" Thanks PC!

    Best PC Antioxidant Serum
    • I've tried all of PC's antioxidant serums, several times - and this one is my absolute favourite. It's beautifully hydrating & soothing for my very sensitive skin. I use it both AM & PM, applied liberally all over my face & throat. It works beautifully under my Replenix SPF 50 zinc oxide spray during the day, and over PC's 2% BHA liquid in the evening.

    • I used this product and other Paula's products for a long time and like the results. I opened a new container of serum in December and have had severe reaction around my eyes. Extreme puffiness, redness and itching. I first thought this was a food allergy and ended up at the doctor with a prescription for the allergic reaction. I have now determined this was a severe reaction to the serum on my eye lids. This was disappointing and sudden. I think something changed.

    pretty good
    • feels thick & sticky on my fingers, but glides onto my face nicely (especially when mixed with a few drops of pc's resist moisture renewal oil booster), leaving a soft, almost matte feeling on my face. i like using this in the winter (my skin then: normal-> dry) & resist ultra-light super antiox conc serum in more mild months (normal->oily).

    Sad that this is not working out for me.
    • I've been a fan of the Resist Ultra-Light Super Antioxidant Serum for some time now. Since I needed to reorder and my skin was a bit drier with winter, I thought this one would be a better choice. I also liked that it included retinol. Unfortunately, something about this serum greatly bothers my eyes. I primarily bought it to use under my eyes to fight aging. I've tried several times, and each time I end up with puffy eyes that water. It's too bad, as the serum itself feels nice.

    Thanks for your comments! We're sorry this didn't work as well as you had hoped, and encourage you to contact us to arrange for a refund or exchange. Also, just to clarify, this serum does not contain retinol. Our Skin Recovery, Skin Balancing, and Resist Intensive Wrinkle Repair serums contain retinol. The Resist Super Antioxidant Concentrate and its Ultra-Light "cousin" do not.

    Something is different
    • I've used this product many times in the past and loved it, but something may have changed... perhaps my skin? Not sure. The last few times I used this serum, a bumpy texture covered my face. Not acne, but an odd bumpy texture, distributed evenly over my entire face. I've tried two separate tubes - thinking maybe one had been old or something- but both tubes caused the same reaction, which took a week to clear up each time. Removing this one from my Resist routine helped. Odd.

    Thanks for your review! As the formula for this serum hasn't changed in the last year, we suspect you may have developed an allergy or sensitivity to one or more of the ingredients this serum contains. That can happen sometimes, even from products you've used for a long time without incident. Please contact us if you need assistance with a return or exchange.

    Amazing!
    • This serum is amazing. After using Olay products (there are some really good formulas) for years I'm changing over to Paula's Choice. This works wonderful for a primer too. I never understood why people buy regular primers instead of serums. Regular primers do nothing for your skin where serums do double duty. I'm a Beauty Advisor and always recommend a serum instead. This one is excellent.

    Retin-a savior
    • Didn't really like using this as an all over serum but I do like it for the eyes. It's a very silicone texture. If you don't like that the ultra light is for you! But Ive found when I use my retina with my moisture boost I'll get a bad reaction if I use my retinol a few days in a row so I tried mixing my retina moisture boost cream and this serum and its magic! No more flakes or irritation from my retina!!!!!! MUST HAVEEEEEE :)

    Not really getting the results I expected
    • I had heard really great things about this serum, and was hoping for good results. While it feels very nice on my skin, and seems to moisturize it well (I don't feel as dry, and see some improvement in fine lines), I can't see any difference in my brown spots or the texture of my skin. I've been using it for a few months now, along with the Resist skin brightener and the sunscreen. I don't think I'll order this again.

    can't beat it!
    • I have used this serum for about 2 years & can't live without it! I have combo skin almost year round, with more dryness in the Winter, but this product works well for me in all seasons. I have seen a difference in my skin - minimization of fine lines and brightness. Additionally, and I believe that this product, in combo with my other Paula products, has helped prevent signs of aging - esp. around my eyes. Love this line and grateful for the reasonable prices & the commitment to facts!

    Bought to use around eyes
    • I bought this to use around my eyes as I needed a good eye cream. The description states that it's good for around the eyes. I put it on only around my eyes before bed and woke up to red, puffy and very itchy eyes. The skin around my eyes feels like it's burning. Even after washing it off my eyes still feel and look horrible 2 hours later. This produce product is not for me. I've never had a product do that to me. I us other Paula's Choice products with no issues.

    Not the product for me
    • I had high hopes for this product, unfortunately, it left me zits. I was looking for something on the cheaper side than what I was using, but still had quality ingredients and I thought this might have been it. However, like most other products with dimethicone in them, it is definitely not for me. I normally have a clear complexion and, after a couple days of using this product, I broke out. I will continue to shell out a little more for what I know works and does not contain any silicones.

    • I was hesitant to buy this at first because of the average review in make up alley but I still bit the bullet. Thank god, I listened to my gut instinct. This is a perfect product. Glides easily on skin, a little goes a long way. Also bought the ultra-light version but I prefer this.

    Best Product
    • I absolutely love this product, it can be used for anything. It goes on silky smooth and is great on spot treatments, around the eyes and I decided to use it on what felt like a cold sore coming on and it was gone the next day. I've now done that a few times and each time it has helped like nothing else before.

    Love this for hands!
    • If you've got a tube and don't like the texture on your face, try it on the backs of your hands. I did that on a whim and now it's a routine for me. I keep it in my drawer at work and use just a tiny bit on the back of each hand twice a day. The serum gives a major boost to whatever hand cream I'm using to help the skin look plump and hydrated. I get tons of compliments on how young my hands look. Not a 5-star only because of it's limited use. I have other serums I prefer for my face.

    • I have been using this since it came out. I can't remember if I saw a difference right away. I do know that, for my age (now perimenopausal), my skin looks great. Paula has improved on this product's consistency over the years. I mix a drop or two with her Resist Barrier Repair Moisturizer every morning.

    Great Eye Serum!
    • Wow! I love using this product around my eyes day and night. The texture is so silky and it sinks into the delicate eye area so nicely. And no stinging! It has also made a difference in decreasing the fine lines and creepiness around my eyes. I never want to be without this! Thank you Paula's Choice for continuing to make such great, effective products!

Which Paula's Choice serum should I use?

All skin types can use any of our serum and each provides multiple anti-aging benefits, but there are some formulary distinctions that make certain Paula's Choice serums preferred for specific skin types. Here's how they break down:
  • Resist Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum and Resist Intensive Wrinkle Repair Retinol Serum can be used by all skin types, including sensitive skin. The Resist Intensive Wrinkle Repair Serum contains the highest amount of retinol.
  • Skin Recovery Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum is best for normal to very dry skin because it contains plant oils.
  • Skin Balancing Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum is best for normal to oily or combination or breakout-prone skin because it has the lightest texture and weightless finish.
  • Resist Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum is one of two Paula’s Choice serums that does not contain retinol. It's the natural choice for anyone whose skin cannot tolerate retinol.
  • Resist Ultra-Light Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum has the lightest texture of all the Resist serums and is our only water-based (rather than silicone-based) serum. It does not contain retinol, so is recommended for those whose skin cannot tolerate this ingredient (or it may be used with one of our retinol serums).

At what point after my laser and/or peel procedure can I begin using my serum again?

First, we urge you to follow the post-procedure instructions your doctor or nurse provided. If nothing was mentioned about when to resume use of a serum, please contact the doctor's office where you had the procedure done. Otherwise, our general advice is to begin using your serum again as soon as possible. All of our serums contain skin-repairing, anti-inflammatory, and replenishing ingredients that calm reddened skin and help enhance the healing process. Make sure you're also protecting your "new" skin every day with a product rated SPF 15 or greater.
