I forgot how much I loved this product! It goes on silky and makes my skin feel so soft! I can't use this and the skin recovery moisturizer on its own but I still recommend it to everyone.

My Favorite Paula Product

It glides on and lasts. Gives such a beautiful skin tone to the face, and brightens.

The best for me
from Northridge, CA
I've been using this serum for almost a year, and I noticed a really clear improvement of the overall condition of my skin. At the beginning, I didn't really used it overnight, but now I do so, and the more I use it, the more I think I can' t live without it, lol! Makes my skin (which is normal with a little bit of oily t zone) feel so nice, supple, hydrated and rested. I'll keep using it over and over, I hope they never change the formula. Ladies, just be very careful to remember to use a sunscreen while using this; the retinol on it can leave dark spots over time if you don't protect your skin against the sun after using it.
Service and delivery comments:
The delivery is always fast and P C always send those really nice pamphlets, which makes it easier to find out what else one could add to their skin care routine.
Effective but not for acne-prone skin
All PC products are of great quality and have wonderful ingredients, this included. However, I am unable to use this serum on my face because it sometimes breaks me out. I have dry skin that is mildly acne-prone. If I use products that are overly moisturizing or heavy (like the Resist Barrier Repair Cream) I often end up with a large, painful cystic pimple or two. As a result, I now use this serum and the Resist cream on my neck and chest. My neck and chest need moisture like my face, but are not at risk of breaking out. I think after this serum and the Resist cream run out, I will try the Resist Barrier Repair lotion, which is lighter but still has retinol.

trouble with the tube
About Me Minimalist
The serum seems ok, but I am having trouble with the tube container. Even when it is not placed facing down serum leaks out with out squeezing it. I keep the lid facing up and notice when I take the lid off, it always has serum leaking out.I have been only using this a couple months, and it is just about empty a lot of the serum is getting wasted - An expensive purchase! I have used other serums and never had this problem before. I would be too nervous to purchase again in case I had the same packaging problem.
Delivery was fine
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
from Dublin, Ireland
When I use this serum at night my skin is very soft and relaxing in the morning, I like the consistency and the fact that you need very few drops. I think this is perfect in combination with the moisturizer to give relief to my dry cheeks, and it does not give any greasy finish to my forehead or chin.

Acne Prone - Beware
from North Carolina
I wanted to love this. My skin is dry, and irritated...it's winter. I've always used the balancing serum, with no issues. A few days of use, and I look like a teenage boy. DO NOT RISK IT! If you break out easily stay away.

Use daily, so calming and silky
By Running from wrinkles
from Home of the Oregon Ducks
I used to use the blue tube but switched because this contains a hint of retinol and the blue tube doesn't. I don't know how I ever lived without serums. I mix with a drop of paulas retinol serum and the 25 percent vitamin c treatment. I find it helps distribute the vitamin c treatment which is a little stiff. Serum makes my sensitive skin face feel pampered and protected from the environmental pollutants. I take vitamins but using a vitamin serum, especially coupled with the vitamin c booster has completely transformed my face.

Great for us dry skin girls
from La Jolla, CA
I use this nightly all over my face and when I wake up in the morning my skin feels so soft and hydrated! No breakouts from this product at all and you really get "feelable" results within the first week.
