Best product on the market
from New Haven, IN
About Me Beauty Conscious
Comments about RESIST Retinol Serum - 1 oz:
I love this stuff! All the products that we have used of Paula's have been great but this is outstanding. I have many dark spots on my face that have almost disappeared and so have any wrinkles I have. I am 63 years old and feel like my face has drastically changed the way I look. I use the Resist Intensive Wrinkle repair retinol serum every other day and within the first 3 days I was amazed. I used to sell Nerium but this kicks them in the butt!

Love this product
from Portland, OR
I would absolutely buy this product again if not for the fact I'd like to try a higher concentration of retinol in my skincare routine. I have very oily skin, acne, and I'm entering my 30s, so I'm trying to stay ahead of the game as I age while improving the skin I already have. When I initially read reviews for this product, I was a bit nervous about the texture since several people mention it's greasy. It does have a somewhat tacky feel in your fingers, and on skin once it is freshly applied. It feels heavy, but not exactly oily, and very smooth. I always mixed it with a booster, which made it feel lighter and less tacky. However, even after applied alone, after a minute or two on your face, it sinks in really nicely and doesn't leave the tacky feel. I have very oily skin and absolutely hate the feel of any product that is even remotely greasy. However, I really liked this product and would keep it in my bag, especially since it offers a nice, mid-range amount of retinol. If I can't handle a higher dose, I'll be coming back to this one for sure.
Fantastic for my mimic wrinkles!
About Me Minimalist
Bought it for my 59 y.o. mom and tried it by chance over our weekend stay. Can't believe it removed all my mimic wrinkles around eyes in just two overnight sessions!!! Tried different stuff before that - incl PC's eye cream, Moist boost and Resist Serum (dark blue one) - nothing worked. Next time will buy the stuff for myself)

Love it love the way it makes my skin feel. It has completely reduced the wrinkles around my eyes. Dramatically reduced my pore size. So much better than Rodin and Fields products. I choose Paula's Choice 100%.
Yes delivery was prompt
Too drying for my skin
I realize this product is to help cell turnover - but OMG it dries me out and makes me peel and flake to the point where I just can't use it, even diluted. Wanted to love it, but it's a no-go for me.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This serum is great because it has retinol, but its very greasy and takes a while to absorb. I think I like the Super Antioxident Serum better. Wish it didn't have the oat kernel oil.

Hey, this works for me!
from Custer, SD
I'm 77 years old, and you know I need all the help I can get! I use this serum once daily , usually in the evening, and Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum, usually in the morning. I have dry skin, but creams make me break out if used over time. At times I add boosters, a retinol treatment, or an exfoliant. Nothing's going to remove all my wrinkles short of surgery, but these serums soften my skin and minimize the appearance of wrinkles.

RETINOL & MORE
from Montgomery, Alabama
About Me INGREDIENT PERFECTIONIST
I love this retinol serum. All the resist treatments are superb but this is one of my favorites. I alternate between this and the resist antioxidant serum. I love that is has Vit C and retinol in it. Asuper effective product for dry skin, wrinkles and spots. Goes on oily but skin soaks it in in a matter of minutes. I love it!

Thank you Paula for what you have done for all of us. I have followed your makeup advice since the 90's and read your books. I am grateful that my skin looks so good for my 65 years. I grew up in South. Fl in the 50s and basked in the sun using iodine and baby oil. About 6 years ago I began better skin care with another well known line formulated by an oriental doctor. And it did well enough, but was very expensive and somewhat irritating. Now, with your products, most of the darker areas are faded, my skin looks bright and clear and dewy. I love your retinol products. My skin is a bit delicate but used as recommended, I rarely have discomfort. Thank you for effective packaging, reasonable prices, and products that do not disappoint.

Greasy and Causes Breakouts!
from Boston, MA
About Me Skin Care Professional
I have combination skin, and purchased this product because I wanted to slowly introduce retinol into my regular routine. This product caused my skin to break out and felt very greasy and uncomfortable on my face. I wouldn't recommend purchasing this product.
