Effective and non-irritating
from Los Angeles
About Me Minimalist, Skin Care Professional
Comments about RESIST Super Antioxidant Serum - 1 oz:
I was looking for a serum with vitamin C to help reduce dark marks and spots, and picked this since PC products are usually well formulated without being too expensive. It does have a strange texture (the silicone base, I assume), but I kept using it regularly, and did see marked improvement to my skin tone over three months. (A few minor breakouts when I first started, but I think this was just a normal purge, to be expected with Vit. C)I have very sensitive skin and this did not irritate it at all. I hope they never discontinue this since it's the only serum I've found that brightens my spots without irritating!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

After using this product with Resist Barrier Repair moisturizer and AHA/BHA lotion I found that it did not add anything. I did not have any problem with the product and it didn't feel greasy (it feels pretty much like any silicone serum out there) but it just made no difference whatsoever. I didn't repurchase and am not missing it at all. If you just like having an extra step in your beauty routine then this could work. Otherwise I'd suggest to save money.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Swollen, itchy eyes
About Me Beauty Expert
Add me to the list of ones who are stuck with swollen eyelids and terrible under eye itching. First time I've ever had a reaction to a product. It's been almost a week and my eye area is still dry and itchy. Enough of us have complained about having had an eye reaction here and at other sites that this problem needs to be looked at.
Love the feel
About Me Beauty Conscious
I use the product at night. I received a sample and thought I would try it. I love the way it feels and goes on my skin so smoothly. I was worried I might break out, but I did not, and it made my skin feel soft. I really like the product.

I really wanted to like this serum since I do love Paula's products. This serum felt a bit greasy to me, and did not absorb very well. It also caused several whiteheads, which I do not normally get. My skin is dry and sensitive, but not breakout prone.

Made me breakout!!
Tried a sample for a week, using nightly after toning and exfoliating. I liked the way it felt on my skin and it did make my skin appear softer. However, my acne prone skin did not react well and I ended up breaking out, especially along my chin and around my nose. Can't continue using, and I'd be careful if you have acne prone skin.
I use this at night 3 times a week after exfoliant and brightner. When you first put it on, one might freek and consider it to greasy but it soaks in quite quickly. On those nights when I use it my skin is considerably lighter and softer.I would love to use it in the morning but it does not mix well with my sunscreen and makes my face flakey. So I only use my PC skin recovery moisturizer under sunscreen. It is also the only PC product with vitamin C I can tolerate.

I love the Resist line of products and felt it was time to bring in the serum...well this was a mistake for my skin. It sat on my skin feeling greasy, and then resulted in my eyes watering like crazy each time I used it. I had to scrub it off and rinse my eyes out with drops! I kept trying (I hated to waste this much money) and kept getting the same results (ridiculous on my part). It does not work for me at all - which is baffling considering I can and do use the Retinol and BHA, AHA products easily. There is something in this that I must be quite allergic to.

I used the product at night right after washing my face. The texture is closer to liquid and applies easily but this is mostly due to the silicone. Right after application, I can feel this product just sitting on my skin. I'm not a fan of silicones but I thought I would give this a try based on the ingredients and reviews. After a week of use, I had to stop because I couldn't stand the feeling. Within that week time, I didn't notice any change in my skin.
