    Not really getting the results I expected
    • I had heard really great things about this serum, and was hoping for good results. While it feels very nice on my skin, and seems to moisturize it well (I don't feel as dry, and see some improvement in fine lines), I can't see any difference in my brown spots or the texture of my skin. I've been using it for a few months now, along with the Resist skin brightener and the sunscreen. I don't think I'll order this again.

    can't beat it!
    • I have used this serum for about 2 years & can't live without it! I have combo skin almost year round, with more dryness in the Winter, but this product works well for me in all seasons. I have seen a difference in my skin - minimization of fine lines and brightness. Additionally, and I believe that this product, in combo with my other Paula products, has helped prevent signs of aging - esp. around my eyes. Love this line and grateful for the reasonable prices & the commitment to facts!

    Great product, but ...
    • I love the product but am having realy trouble squeezing it out of the tube. Thought it was just a ione-time thing, but the clossing up just keeps happening. Very frustrating as the product itself is great.

    Bought to use around eyes
    • I bought this to use around my eyes as I needed a good eye cream. The description states that it's good for around the eyes. I put it on only around my eyes before bed and woke up to red, puffy and very itchy eyes. The skin around my eyes feels like it's burning. Even after washing it off my eyes still feel and look horrible 2 hours later. This produce product is not for me. I've never had a product do that to me. I us other Paula's Choice products with no issues.

    Not the product for me
    • I had high hopes for this product, unfortunately, it left me zits. I was looking for something on the cheaper side than what I was using, but still had quality ingredients and I thought this might have been it. However, like most other products with dimethicone in them, it is definitely not for me. I normally have a clear complexion and, after a couple days of using this product, I broke out. I will continue to shell out a little more for what I know works and does not contain any silicones.

    Love it.
    • I was hesitant to buy this at first because of the average review in make up alley but I still bit the bullet. Thank god, I listened to my gut instinct. This is a perfect product. Glides easily on skin, a little goes a long way. Also bought the ultra-light version but I prefer this.

    Best Product
    • I absolutely love this product, it can be used for anything. It goes on silky smooth and is great on spot treatments, around the eyes and I decided to use it on what felt like a cold sore coming on and it was gone the next day. I've now done that a few times and each time it has helped like nothing else before.

    Love this for hands!
    • If you've got a tube and don't like the texture on your face, try it on the backs of your hands. I did that on a whim and now it's a routine for me. I keep it in my drawer at work and use just a tiny bit on the back of each hand twice a day. The serum gives a major boost to whatever hand cream I'm using to help the skin look plump and hydrated. I get tons of compliments on how young my hands look. Not a 5-star only because of it's limited use. I have other serums I prefer for my face.

    Best makeup primer
    • I don't think I've seen specific results with this product but I love it as a makeup primer. It also seems to soothe my skin, which has become super-sensitive since trying to use the Clinical Retinol.

    A staple for years
    • I have been using this since it came out. I can't remember if I saw a difference right away. I do know that, for my age (now perimenopausal), my skin looks great. Paula has improved on this product's consistency over the years. I mix a drop or two with her Resist Barrier Repair Moisturizer every morning.

    Great Eye Serum!
    • Wow! I love using this product around my eyes day and night. The texture is so silky and it sinks into the delicate eye area so nicely. And no stinging! It has also made a difference in decreasing the fine lines and creepiness around my eyes. I never want to be without this! Thank you Paula's Choice for continuing to make such great, effective products!

    Not sure if it helps or not
    • I like the way this feels on my skin as a night time treatment, and it definitely doesn't irritate me. I have purchased it twice, however, and cannot say I noticed any changes, unlike the dramatic benefits of Paula's many wonderful exfoliants. I might try a retinol next time, or the vitamin C serum.

    Thank you times a million!
    • Last week I woke up with rough, dry, scaly, lizard woman skin all over my face. I was scared!! The only thing I could think that I did was that I used a homemade scrub on my face and 2 days later it turned my face into the worse dry skin I've ever had. Half way through the week of this ridiculousness, I found some samples of this product that I had forgotten about. I gave it a try (morning and night) plus a super moisturizing dry skin cream and voila!! My skin is almost back to normal. AMAZING.

    My Dewy Skin
    • I like to mix this serum with the Ultra-Light Super Serum to get just the right balance of texture for my "special" skin - this one sometimes feels like too much product is sitting on my skin, making my face all shiny and glistening away, while the Ultra-Light Serum always sinks in immediately, and I'm all, "hey, where'd it go?". Mixing the two in my palm and applying seems to be the ticket. The texture is juuust right, as I like to feel a tiny bit of product on the surface and look a bit dewy.

    game changer
    • This little tube has made such a difference in my skin. It contains an amazing array of the best, proven skin care ingredients. I use it every day and have seen a lovely change in my skin...not drastic, of course, but subtle. Subtle yet noticeable. At my age (46), at any age, that's what top-notch skincare products should deliver, and this does. Thank you, Paula :)

    Nice as a moisturizer, but doesn't deliver on anti-aging promises
    • I give this two stars for its moisturizing properties. It does soak into the skin well and leave it feeling silky smooth, but after using for months to combat dark spots and crepiness on my cheeks, I see no difference whatsoever. In the last week, I have begun microneedling my face every other night. I find this serum very soothing to my skin after treating with a dermaroller, so I will use the rest of this tube, but won't repurchase.

    Great results!
    • I was reluctant to add a serum to my new PC skin routine, after using too complicated, expensive, ineffective routines from other skincare brands. Now I don't go a night without applying this soothing serum. My freckles and spots are fading, including the big hormonal brown spot on my cheek that's been around forever! It is a bit oily when I first put it on, but it absorbs quickly, and does not break me out. Great results from an innocent looking tube!

    Wow!
    • This brand is amazing in general (thank you /r/skincareaddiction for bringing me here!) but I can't believe what this product has done for my skin with only 3 sample sized packs! My formerly red, dry, flaky skin now glows with health! I love that it's a concentrated formula, it takes so little to see results! My fine lines are almost non-existent. I just ordered another full-sized 8% AHA gel because I had to with 20% off! Got another 5 samples. Will be buying the full-sized one when it's on sale

    Lovely!
    • I have combo skin on the dry side, so I use a lot of moisturizing products. This serum is also moisturizing, so I only use it when I'm feeling a little dry. It has a lovely, silky texture and doesn't irritate. Feels like I'm giving my skin one of those green health smoothies, lol! On days when I don't need so much moisture, I reach for the "Super-Light" Resist serum, which I also love! A little of this goes a looooong way. Pea-sized amount isn't an underestimation!

    Great but gave me blackheads after one week
    • Have been using the resist line along with the 1% retinol sample for a week & love all of it but woke up with blackheads on the sides of my nose today & have never had blackheads in my life. I think the serum is too thick. It is the consistency of syrup & takes a long time to sink into the skin. I also noticed that even the slightest exertion caused my nose to perspire so even when the serum dried it was more like a coating over my skin. Other than that seemed great just not for me....

    Unexpected other use
    • I was holidaying on a tiny island, and I got a wicked sunburn on the tops of my knees from sitting in a boat all day. The one pharmacy was closed, and I was in so much pain I was desperate to put SOMETHING on the burn, and since this serum is super soothing I tried a bit first to make sure it wouldn't sting, and then liberally coated both my knees. Within five minutes, by the time it had all absorbed, the pain had abated and the swelling was going down. By the morning, it didn't hurt at all!

    Great product
    • I've always been a fan of serums - they just feel like they are doing good. This one is no exception. The texture is similar to straight Vitamin E, so a little goes a long way. It blends perfectly under my makeup in the morning and absorbs beautifully at night. My skin LOOKS more hydrated and firm. The furrow between my brows is less noticeable after using this awesome product.

    Super oily
    • It's a big no no for who has oily skin. I used twice and acnes start to appear on my face, which is a problem I thought being away from me since long time ago. I just don't understand why it's labeled as for all skin types rather than for dry skin.

    Thanks for your review! Formula-wise, this is a concentrated product, so a little goes a long way. Many people apply too much at once, resulting in an oily feel. You may prefer our Ultra-Light Super Antioxidant Concentrate. Please contact us to arrange for an exchange!

    • i have been using this since it first came out. i have not found any other serum either by Paula or other makers that is better so i have always come back to this. & i stock it up on sale. it takes a while to absorb but it leaves the skin smooth yet not greasy (then why only 4 stars? i wish it did not have soy oil tho as > 90% is GMO but it is pretty far @ the end so i just tolerate it)

Detailed instructions on how/when to apply your Paula's Choice products can be found in our How to Put Together Your Own Skincare Routine article.

Which Paula's Choice serum should I use?

All skin types can use any of our serum and each provides multiple anti-aging benefits, but there are some formulary distinctions that make certain Paula's Choice serums preferred for specific skin types. Here's how they break down:
  • Resist Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum and Resist Intensive Wrinkle Repair Retinol Serum can be used by all skin types, including sensitive skin. The Resist Intensive Wrinkle Repair Serum contains the highest amount of retinol.
  • Skin Recovery Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum is best for normal to very dry skin because it contains plant oils.
  • Skin Balancing Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum is best for normal to oily or combination or breakout-prone skin because it has the lightest texture and weightless finish.
  • Resist Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum is one of two Paula’s Choice serums that does not contain retinol. It's the natural choice for anyone whose skin cannot tolerate retinol.
  • Resist Ultra-Light Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum has the lightest texture of all the Resist serums and is our only water-based (rather than silicone-based) serum. It does not contain retinol, so is recommended for those whose skin cannot tolerate this ingredient (or it may be used with one of our retinol serums).

At what point after my laser and/or peel procedure can I begin using my serum again?

First, we urge you to follow the post-procedure instructions your doctor or nurse provided. If nothing was mentioned about when to resume use of a serum, please contact the doctor's office where you had the procedure done. Otherwise, our general advice is to begin using your serum again as soon as possible. All of our serums contain skin-repairing, anti-inflammatory, and replenishing ingredients that calm reddened skin and help enhance the healing process. Make sure you're also protecting your "new" skin every day with a product rated SPF 15 or greater.
