Comments about RESIST Retinol Serum - 1 oz:
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.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

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.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
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!

About Me Beauty Conscious
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.
I would definitely buy this product again
By In fact I tell everyone!
from I wish I can. Up the product at a store
I have been using this product since May 2016. I get so many people stating I looke 10-15 years younger , I am 56 years old. I alway to that Paula's Choice! Great product.
I purchased this product based on several very positive online reviews. What I am most displeased about is the texture. Most serums that I have used over the years have a nice "slip" and are very easy to glide over the face and smooth into the skin. This texture of this serum is a cross between tacky and oily. After I apply it, my face feels like it has a layer of sticky oil on it. Very odd. I will continue to use the product in the hopes that it will make some improvement of my skin. If it does, I might consider repurchasing, but I really wish the texture could be improved.

Great Product, Terrible Packaging
from Vashon Island, WA
I've never reviewed a product before but I think people should know this! The only reason I'm giving this a 3 instead of a 5 is because of the packaging. The product is lovely and feels great on my skin.It comes in a pre-measured pump dispenser, so you cannot control the amount of product you use. For me, one pump was too much. There is precious little product in there in the first place for $42, so it was gone in about 20 pumps. But the worst part is, you cannot unscrew it to get out the remaining product. I had to take a hammer to it with several hard blows in order to get to the week's worth of remaining product. Very poorly designed. Until this is changed I cannot recommend this product and will not be buying it again.
By Running from wrinkles
from Home of the Oregon Ducks
I love this serum. I stopped using it after I bought Paula's retinol treatment but I missed it too much and now use both. This serum makes my skin look amazing! I feel soothed, pampered and protected after using it. I mix it with the recovery serum, the retinol treatment and the 25% vitamin C spot treatment. I mix it all together and slather it on. I find that a serum with the treatments is soothing and helps my dry sensitive skin not get irritated by the treatments and exfoliants.

Great starter for retinol use
from New York
About Me Beauty Conscious, Minimalist
I received a trial size sample of this back in December & started using it religiously at night as directed, along with the other products for PM and AM use. It's been very gentle on my skin and I could tell even after about 2 weeks of use that there were improvements to my skin texture & fine lines. A little goes a long way and this serum spreads smoothly & easily and leaves no greasy film, it sinks right in. I've most likely built a tolerance now and will be increasing to the 1% Clinical Retinol soon.
