The best for me

Comments about SKIN RECOVERY Antioxidant Serum with Retinol - 1 oz:
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.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

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.

Great for irritated or healing skin

About Me Beauty Expert
I have used all of PC's serums, and still do. I find my combo skin in a constant state of flux due to my age: some days dry, others oily (summers in Ohio are usually hot and humid), other days irritated, especially if someone (who, me?) load every exfoliant on his skin for a planned half hour 'at home peel', and fell asleep for three hours. Not a pleasant experience!In the latter case I used to go the Clinical Redness Relief to gently blot the super red areas, and alternate between steroid cream and this serum, as it instantly cooled and soothed my lava looking face.In fact, just 24 hours of that routine and my face looked normal (though it felt very tender, and I avoided all retinols and exfolianst for a few days more).For those of you with normal to oily skin, this is a perfect eye treatment. I've applied this first, waited for it to set, then applied whatever eye cream (Barrier Repair, Clinical Ultrarich, or Skin Recovery mask or night cream, or, of course, the newer Resist eye cream). In the morning, even with only two hours sleep, my eyes look rested, tightened, and far less wrinkled than before I started this routine. It's also a great base for mixing with the Boosters, as its thickness helps the more water light products stay put. It's also great to use on the lips prior to adding the lip balm.If you do have trouble with blackheads, acne, etc., I'd probably not use this on the rest of my face as Paula has some excellent serums just for those skin types. However, if you are sometimes an idiot like me and like to experiment with potentially irritating items, or of if you have normal to dry skin, or super dry, definitely give this a try.If you are not sure, give the customer service team a call or email; they are MORE than helpful! They can guide you to the correct products and provide advice to help with your issues. They are terrific.

I am a regular user of PC products and I love them so I am always willing to try something new. I ordered this serum as a replacement to the Resist serum which was out of stock. Sadly, this product did not work well for me - caused extreme dryness and irritation over the course of use. I won't be using this product in the future and I am back to using my resist serum.
