Holy Grail Retinol

Comments about RESIST Retinol Serum - 1 oz:
I have tried other retinol products for almost a year before trying this. I had to discontinue all of the others because they dried out my skin and made my skin look worse!! This retinol is different! I started out using this two nights a week over toner, then three nights and now I use this four nights a week over toner and under moisturizer- sometimes moisturizer with two drops of Resist Vitamin C Booster or sometimes moisturizer with two drops argan oil. The next day my skin looks firmer, brighter, pore size looks smaller and my skin generally looks healthier. For me, this is a very important part of my anti-aging skin care routine!! I should add that I do not use my AHA on nights I use this.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I love th his product
This is the most amazing product I have ever used. A little drop is enough to make my skin so soft and nourished. I don't know if it really helps wrinkles, I assume this takes time, and I just started using it.
I'm Loving This Serum
from Stouffville, ON
About Me Beauty Expert
I've never used a Retinol product like this one before. I love love love this product - everything from the great packaging to the wonderful silky texture this serum has - almost like a light oil - it's hard to describe but it goes on beautifully and it doesn't irritate my skin at all. Other Retinol products I've used have caused dryness and flaking, but not this one. I've been using it twice a day right after the Beta Hydroxy 1% exfoliator. I follow it up in the daytime with a paula's moisturizer with sunscreen. Excellent product.
One of the few PC products that I dislike - bad texture.
from Hinsdale, IL
PC products have completely changed my skin, but this one is not a keeper. The sticky texture makes it basically unusable for me, and much to my chagrin I think I will throw it out before using it up. It's a thick, sappy substance that does not absorb well into my skin and makes me wake up feeling like my face is dirty and greasy instead of glowy. To be blunt, I hate it.I strongly prefer the clinical 1% retinol treatment, which is much more like a serum/light cream and absorbs beautifully.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Packaging is terrible
from Chattanooga, TN
About Me Minimalist
It is difficult to rate the product itself because I find myself using it only part of the time because the packaging is terrible. Upon opening the box the first time, the top part of the dispenser fell off. Ever since, the dispenser will not seat properly on the pump and so only dribbles of product come out. It may be that this product, like the many PC products I have used in the past, is fabulous. But using this is an exercise in frustration each and every time.
Breakouts and Blackheads Galore!
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!
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.

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
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.

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.
