Comments about SKIN RECOVERY Antioxidant Serum with Retinol - 1 oz:
I typically use the Resist serum with Retinol. But then, after trying a sample, I fell in love with this Skin Recovery Antioxidant Serum with Retinol. I find that my skin just drinks this in and is left feeling soft and supple. I alternate this now with the Resist with Retinol, tending to use the Resist at night because it has a more oily feel.To give you an idea about if it might work for you, I have had oily, acne prone skin since I was 11 years of age. Now, my acne tends to be hormonal, appearing mostly on my chin and jaw line. Without extra care, the acne is absolutely unsightly and out of control. Paula's Choice products are the most effective I have ever used! With regular use, I rarely get pimples. My skin is smoother, brighter, and more even toned then ever.This serum is definitely a huge contributor to my now clear skin!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Drying! Surprisingly did nothing positive for me!
By Megan the cyclist
from Temecula, CA
I have purchased quite a few Paula's Choice products. I have combination skin, but have been REALLY dry this winter. I also spend quite a bit outdoors and mountain bike regularly (so you can get an idea of what my skin is subjected to). I found that this product did nothing positive for me no matter when or how I used it. It was actually drying my skin out! I used it first in the warmer months and it caused breakouts. I was then instructed to use it again in the colder, dryer months instead - so I waited. I used it again recently and still it only dried out my skin and then created a few breakouts. I was really disappointed and will be looking into their other products.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Really wanted to love
from New York City
I applied this on the top half of my face. Loved the consistency and moisturizing feel, however it made me breakout in little red bumps. Tried to stick with it to see if skin would adjust, but it did not.

Great night eye cream - Staple
This serum is great as an eye cream and I've used it every night for that purpose for many years.I even put it on my eyelids with no irritation or puffiness.It's a great way to get some retinol around my eyes safely.I also use it all over my face (as intended) when I need an extra layer of comfort or an antioxidant boost (when my moisturizer is not providing it).This serum is a staple in my skincare routine.
Combats Winter Dry Skin
By PC Fan

I love this product. My skin takes a beating in winter with indoor dry air. This is perfect moisture. I also use it on my cuticles.

I started using Paula's Choice products almost a year ago as part of a resolution to start taking care of my skin. I was skeptical that anything but cleanser and moisturizer would really do anything, but this serum is the one thing I can definitively say I notice a difference. My skin feels like the silky smooth serum when I put it on, and the day after I put it on.

I dont understand the hype
from Montreal, Canada
I reaally do not understand the hype and the ratings of this products. The product consistency is not what I was expecting, the product is heavy, oily, silicone-like, and difficult to apply on skin. After a month I did not see any change on my skin and wanted to throw it away.

Perfect winter moisturizer
from Harrisburg, OR
I love this product so much, I couldn't resist getting on the site and doing a review. It's literally the most perfect winter moisturizer for dry skin. It looks like it may be oily, but it soaks in within 5 minutes and makes my skin soft and glowy. Thank you so much for making such a fantastic product! It has zero scent and a little goes a long way.
I love this serum, but I really don't think it fits in the "Recovery" line. It's extremely rich and the next morning after use my skin looks amazing and plump. However, when my skin is irritated, this is not something I would use because it's not really soothing and does nothing to calm skin that I have noticed. But, if your skin is dry, this is terrific, and I prefer this to the Resist serum in dark blue tube.

Extremely Hydrating !
from Ottawa, Canada
Love this product. It is a thick serum but once you apply it to the skin it starts to melt into a smooth oil consistency. Don't apply to much - a pea size amount at most. Give it a little bit to sink in before applying moisturizer. Your skin will glow !!!
