Breakouts and Blackheads Galore!
About Me Beauty Expert
Comments about RESIST Retinol Serum - 1 oz:
I loved how this product made me glow, but it was way too greasy and heavy and has left me with a very large blackhead problems on my face, but especially around my chin and lips and even forehead. I started to also breakout around my chin. It's AWEFUL!! I have to go to a dermatologist to the blackheads extracted two different times!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Have gotten beautiful results from using this serum. My skin is prone to mild breakouts, but using this serum they are now almost non existent, a big bonus is also waking up every morning to glowing skin!I use it almost every night.Have Tried the clinical 1% retinol and that was a bit to potent for me while this one delivers fantastic results with no kick back for me.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

from Okotoks Alberta Canada
I've purchased this 3 X and I love it. I have very sensitive skin and I do not like fragrance so this product I adore. It is unscented and works really well. I find it very moisturizing. Holy grail product

About Me Beauty Conscious
Decided to try this product, noticed my chin area was rough and starting to look a little pitted. I have used it for a month, and have seen results. Skin is smooother, and chin looks better already. I haven't had any skin irritation or problems at all. Was actually surprised to see the other comments, that woman have had issues. I am also using the 10% resist weekly treatment. I use it 3 or 4 times a week.

About Me Minimalist
This product indeed is not very good. It breaks me out and it does not absorb well. Also, I have not noticed any changes yet, I have had it for about 8 months now. You are supposed to see results after 2 months... right?Such an expensive product for such poor quality and benefits.

Breaks me out
from Washington DC
This breaks me out every time I try to use it. I put it on at night and I wake up with little blemishes and rough skin. I will try another retinol product because I feel like there is something in this formula that doesn't agree with my skin at all. Bummer, because this wasn't cheap.

Didn't like the texture at all.

About Me Skin Care Professional
It's a very heavy product with a thick, oily, silicone feel. It's the only PC product I have disliked. My skin is REALLY dry and it's too heavy for me. If I use this with a primer, I get that weird, pebbled texture that too much silicone can create. Yuck. Yuck. Yuck. I have used beauty oils and/or boosters for a few years and I love them. I love the other PC retinol products and have Alpha and Beta exfoliants. My pores are feeling and looking coarse and I have blemishes! That never happens. Stay away. All the other retinol products are great.

This is my first time using a retinol product and I am in love! I use PC products exclusively and my skin has never looked better. I alternate using this serum at night (2x a week now and will increase to maybe 3-4) with the Resist Antioxidant serum. It is a thicker serum, which doesn't bother me, and sinks into skin within a couple minutes. It is too soon to see major changes, but so far so good!
My Skin's Holy Grail
from New York, NY
This product is heaven. When I first tried it, the texture seemed very thick and emollient, and I was concerned about breakouts or it being too much for my young-ish skin. However, I quickly realized that the initial shiny effect faded as the serum absorbed into my skin, leaving it incredibly soft and supple.I have combination, sensitive, acne-prone skin, and not only does this product help keep breakouts at bay while healing red marks from previous blemishes, but I was surprised to discover it is the only thing I've tried that helped clear a constellation of whiteheads from my cheeks. Bonus! I'm going to be using this for a long time.

Great Retinol serum
from Toronto, Canada
I am new to Paula's Choice, but I have practically used anything and everything from low to high end. I have gotten increasingly sensitive towards anything with fragrance, so I had to stop using all my Korean skincare products. Also, my skin burns at any hint of alcohol, which makes this product a great choice. I have used many retinol serums, very few of which had enough of concentration to make a difference; or in inferior forms. Also, my skin usually burns and peels badly with retinol, but surprisingly not with this one. I have no real wrinkles yet, just fine lines, and this is a great product for fine lines and overall skin tone. I am waiting for more stock now that it's sold out!
