The duo that makes a difference!

Comments about Power Couple: RESIST C15 + SKIN RECOVERY Antioxidant Serum - Complete Duo:
I knew I wanted two products in my nighttime routine -- retinol for wrinkles and vitamin C for brightening. I thought the CLINICAL 1% Retinol Treatment would have been the perfect product for me, but it made my skin dry and sensitive. And prescription retin-A was a nightmare. I didn't even give the antioxidant serums any thought until one night I ran out of my retinol and tried this. It's amazing! I then mixed in a generous amount of the vitamin C and my skin has never looked better. This combo doesn't make my skin sensitive, red , flaky or cause any breakouts, and I'm actually using less foundation in the day because the tone is more even and my skin is so smooth. There's not much to cover up! I've never had such good skin. I also use the SKIN PERFECTING 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant every morning as a toner because I want some daily acid exfoliation and the RADIANCE Renewal Mask on its own as my moisturizer once or twice a week at night, which I also really like.If you want the benefits of retinol and vitamin C, try this!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

About Me Beauty Conscious
I had the serum and then ordered the Vitamin C to try. Decided to combine them and this has become my favorite evening ritual. I use 2 drops with a dab of serum. I noticed within a week that it brightened and smoothed my complexion. My husband has started having rosacea problems on his face and I had him start using it too. It has made a visible difference. I now have him using Paula's products too.

Great for winter
By LAUREL S.
I switched to this set from the Skin Balancing serum when the winter air got so dry that my skin was constantly flaking. What a difference! Very happy. My skin is smoother and happier. I also mix the Clinical 1% Retinol Treatment in (it's too drying by itself) every few days. Well worth the money.

Vit. C Drops Are Not For Me
By Kristy M.
I'm so glad this product comes in a trial size. That's what I ordered to test this duo out. My skin does not jive well with Vit. C. I get a mild irritating/burning/tingling feeling when I use it. I can just tell my skin wants me to stop applying this. I'll keep using the serum on its own.
Customer Service Response: Hello, and thank you for sharing your experience with us - we're sorry to hear the C15 Super Booster didn't work as expected for you, but are glad to hear that the serum is working well for you!

Resist C15 & Skin Recovery Super Antioxidant concentrate ...
By Bryce M.
My skin is dry. I am in my 70th yr. and trying to keep the wrinkles at bay. I have been using Skin Recovery Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum for several years. Recently I added Resist C15. I apply this mixture to my eye and mouth areas. My skin drinks it in. Wrinkles appear less noticeable. I store the C15 in the refrigerator to avoid any discoloration. These products do an excellent job. I enjoy being told I look 10 years younger.

WOW - immediate results
By CATHERINE b.
Thanks Paula! I added this combo to my routine this winter and my dry, sensitive skin loves it. I tried retinol in the past, and it literally burned my skin. Not so here - the retinol in the serum does not irritate my skin - I even use it on my eyelids and lips before I mix it with the C15 for the rest of my face, neck and decolletage. I noticed the results - brighter and smoother skin - almost immediately. Doesn't irritate with a layer of AHA 8% underneath. A keeper.

I just turned 43 and I have always been told I have beautiful skin. BUT, it is ridiculously dry and I never seem to be able to find the moisturizing agent that is natural and that lasts 24 hours. After I finally relented and took my friend's advice on Paula, I cannot believe the difference in my skin!! It feels so smooth, and even at the end of the day it remains hydrated. It feels as though my skin has a breathable barrier to lock in moisture.

I thought that in order to get high quality ingredients you had to use expensive cosmeceuticals. I've considered C products a non-negotiable product in my skin care regimen for years (and it shows!). And I've spent a fortune, but you don't have to! These two products work, period. My skin looks bright, moisturized and the epitome of healthy. I'm 44 but my skin looks 30! Make these two products and sunscreen non-negotiable and you're gonna see a whole new level of gorgeous! Cheers to that!
I began using the Skin Recovery products a few years ago when my skin was uncomfortably tight and dry, especially the high-cheek, under-eye area, and voila--that tight and dry feeling pretty much disappeared. I tried the C15 Booster one night a month or so ago and, much to my surprise, saw better-looking skin the very next morning! So, both of these products are now part of my regimen. (I mix 2 or 3 drops of serum plus 3 drops of C15 in a tiny rounded-bottom jar, then apply.)

I was skeptical to add Resist C15 Super Booster, but I am so glad that I did! It truly adds a smoothness and youthful look to my skin. I started out using each separately but noticed that I was using more than the recommended amount of the super booster. Then I started mixing the two together prior to application. They go on so nicely and quickly when mixed together. Once you try it, you will be hooked too!
