Major Breakouts and Irritation
About Me Minimalist
Comments about Power Couple: RESIST C15 + RESIST Ultra-Light Serum - Complete Duo:
I'm in my mid thirties and have notice some brown spots appearing on my forehead so I thought it was time to step up my anti-aging regimen. I used to be very prone to acne breakouts but for the past year and a half my skin seems to have calmed down and I am no longer extremely paranoid about the products I use. I tried the Vitamin C Booster and Light Serum for about three days and almost immediately noticed red irritation marks around my eyes and between my eyebrows. They almost look like burns. My cheeks and temples are also fully broken out in pimples. I haven't used the products in a week and a half now and the pimples are still there and the irritation around my eyes is persisting as well. My skin hasn't looked this awful since I was a teenager. Very disappointed.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

The Vitamin C Resist C15 smells like bacon grease and metal...weird but wow is this effective! I have been using this combo for 2 weeks now and it has definitely made a difference in my skin. My skin looks smoother...it's not a huge difference yet b/c I believe that you have to continually use Vitamin C for at least 10 weeks to see a big difference but I can already see that my skin looks younger. And that is exactly what I had hoped for. Vitamin C and Ferulic Acid has been proven to be effective for hyperpigmentation and fine lines. The antioxidant serum works incredibly well with this product to smooth and soften skin. I am also making renewed efforts to improve my diet by eating healthy foods and staying away from processed junk and alcohol...and let me tell you...I already look 5 years younger...this combo has helped immeasurably toward getting my youthful, glowing skin back...I'm in my 40's and I need to get serious about skincare. Thanks so much to PC for making great skincare affordable!!

Just does not work with my skin type
from New York, NY
I have dry, slightly sensitive skin that is mostly prone to comedogenic breakouts. My skin works well with emollient products as long as they're the right ones- Oils and creams containing vitamin e, I've noticed, are the prime causes of those breakouts. Both products work well in the sense that they softened my skin and helped with some PIH, but I think the vitamin e in both products caused comedones to erupt in places and some pimples as a result. These are easy to treat but leave lasting irritation marks on my face, so I don't think that the benefits are worth it for the problematic appearance of my skin. I have used both, together and separately, and do not enjoy either of them. I wouldn't knock it completely for other folks, but if even argan oil breaks you out, avoid dropping money on these guys.

My skin loves this combo!
By Stephanie W.
I had a ton of inflammation plus many-years-old acne scars on my chin and the side of my nose. I'd used the serum alone in the past and liked it, but adding the C15 Super Booster to it made a world of difference. Much of the redness and inflammation has gradually disappeared from my cheeks, and I wake up with bright, healthy looking skin. The acne scars are visibly smoother and lighter as well. This duo has probably made the most difference out of any PC products I've tried.
I've been using this combination since they products were introduced and they have made a different in my skin. I mix the two products together and find that they have brightened and smoothed out my skin without making it look or feel greasy. The Ultra-Light Serum is the first serum that I've used from PC that did not make my combination skin feel or look greasy. The other Resist serum was too heavy and thick for me, this one is perfect!

I love the way it makes my skin feel! I have combination skin and this perfectly moisturizes without causing my skin to feel or look greasy. These products have made a noticeable difference in my skin and some of the darker spots have faded. Will definitely buy again.

I have dry, yet acne prone skin, and this has reduced skin flaking, dry patches, and hasn't broken me out. I mix these two serums together, and then put a few drops of C15 into moisturizer as well. Feel like my skin tone is becoming more even, and have actually stopped wearing foundation, just some mineral concealer on a few spots that are still healing from past breakouts. I feel like these two serums are also helping those marks fade faster. Love it!
