I am quite impressed
from Costa Rica
About Me Beauty Conscious
Comments about RESIST 10% Niacinamide Booster - 0.67 oz:
I got a few samples of this booster and since it is recommended for reducing pores, I decided to try it out one day after using the Skin Balancing Oil-Absorbing Mask and the Resist 2% Liquid BHA (this is my every-other-day typical routine to try and keep the pores or my nose as clean and tight as possible). While the mask and BHA give pretty good results, I was quite impressed on how my pores looked visibly smaller and cleaner the next morning. I wouldn't say they disappeared over a single night, but the effects of adding this booster to my pore maintenance is quite evident.
Service and delivery comments:
These were just sample packets. I know they are supposed to be used one per day, but since I am applying only to a small area (the nose) one single sample lasted me four days.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This really works!
About Me Beauty Expert
I have used nearly every product made by Paula's choice. I can't say what really works except for this lovely fluid! It's a liquid that I use daily and it really does reduce the size of my pores. I put it on my face at least once a day and I'm really impressed with the results!

I haven't had any breakouts since using this!
By Sarah G
from Santa Clarita, CA
I use this once to twice a day and my skin has never looked so airbrushed,and without makeup! I work in health care and have no time to put on my face, so it's important that I have clear, not irritated skin. I love that I and cruelly notice an improvement with this product. My must have regimen starts with cereve hydrating cleanser, paulas skin recovery toner, 2% bha liquid exfoliant and then I mix this niacinimide booster with paulas omega complex serum and when extra dry I top off with cereve moisturizing lotion. I will continue to repurchase and highly recommend this to anyone wanting an airbrushed look!

Too pricey & not effective
from So. California
This did nothing & for the price, I had to return it. I had high hopes, but I found a less expensive niacinamide product that DOES work. I hope the PC team works on improving this formula.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Noticeable difference and brightness
from Rochester, NY
I bought this on a whim, and glad I did. I only use this in the morning, and pat into my skin after washing, and before applying the RESIST serum. And I've noticed smaller pores, smoother skin and noticeably brighter complexion. I'm very pale skinned, and I've also noticed a difference in lightening of some small scars. I highly recommend.
My skin has never looked so good!
from San Diego CA
About Me Skin Care Professional
I have been using this product for a month as well as other PC products. The combination of them all is making such amazing improvements in my skin. I noticed a large difference in my pores especially when I wear makeup. I use the IT Cosmetics CC Cream and the Bye Bye Pores translucent powder and the combination of the skin care and good cosmetics makes my skin look grrrreat! In LOVE - Please do not ever discontinue this product. I use this product after I tone and exfoliate. I apply a drop on each check, nose, chin and forehead and rub it in. That is my preferred method. I have combination skin with an oily t-zone. I use the CALM Redness Relief Toner, CALM Redness Relief 1% BHA Lotion Exfoliant prior to applying this booster. Hope this helps!
Holy mackerel, my pores really are smaller
I''ve had good results from niacinimide in Cerave brand moisturizers, so I knew it was an effective ingredient for me. I could always tell a difference when using it: my skin just looked brighter, healthier, and indefinably younger. This booster is something else again. It does all that and ALSO shrinks pores like nobody's business: the only thing that competes is a prescription retinoid. My pores didn't vanish, exactly, but they got softer and faded into the background. I'm on my third bottle!As for the packaging, I really like the eyedropper and glass bottle. It's simple to use and very precise.
Service and Delivery are always incredibly prompt and helpful.
Not great for my combo skin with enlarged pores
from SoCal, CA
I have been using PC for several years. My still, at 60+ y/o, combo skin has fine lines, loss of elasticity, enlarged pores in my T-zone, and sun damage. I purchased this product and endeavored to add 2-3 drops to my daytime serum, PC's "Skin Balancing Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum with Retinol." (In addition to other PC products, my nighttime routine includes the same serum alternating with PC's "RESIST Intensive Wrinkle-Repair Retinol Serum," each with the addition of 3 drops of PC's "RESIST C15 Super Booster." I also nightly use PC's "RESIST BHA 9." My nighttime routine has been in place for a few years.) I discovered that any day following the use of PC's "RESIST 10% Niacinamide Booster," I develop a pimple and/or even more enlarged pores. Yes it left my non-oily areas feeling seeming to have a smoother texture but not to the extent that I would tolerate new blemishes. Saddly, this was not the product for me.

Watery texture makes precise dose difficult.
from St. Paul MN
About Me Minimalist
It seems like the point of a dropper dispenser is to make the 2-3 drop dose precise. The watery texture of this booster makes it difficult to determine how many drops are being dispensed and very easy to waste this expensive product. I find myself "forgetting" to use the product for this reason, so can't comment on effect though I've experienced no adverse reaction. But I won't purchase again for the reason above.
Prompt delivery. Customer service from PC always great.

A good product but not quite good enough for all skin types
By Discerning and honest
As a big fan of Paula's Choice, I am rarely disappointed in any products I use from her line, including samples. Most products I have used and tried are excellent, and I am a long-time user of her serums and Vit C booster. This product, although good in terms of what it claims it can do for the skin, has the drawback of producing tiny pimples, white bumps and redness around those bumps, when I purchased and used to try. I noticed the reaction within a few days of using, but persisted because it did actually leave my skin glowing, too. I then stopped using it altogether to test if it was actually a reaction to the product, or a coincidence (the bumps). Sure enough, the bumps reappeared - and I did this twice, to be sure (stop and start). I personally would not repurchase this product because I have never had this reaction to any of Paulas's products, so I am assuming there is something in the Niacinimiade (sp, sorry) that might trigger this. However, I could see the texture and "glow" that this provided - different from a Vit C glow - that other users might benefit from.
