Stands up to the best on the market, I would know
By Discerning and Honest Reviewer
from Toronto Canada
About Me Beauty Conscious
Comments about RESIST C15 Super Booster - 0.67 oz:
This is an excellent Vitamin C product - for me, Vitamin C is a standout essential that I started using more than 15 years ago and I swear by it (people regularly guess my age 10 years younger, and I owe a lot of this to Vit C). I realize different products and different ingredients have different results for each individual, but for me personally, Vit C is the most effective, dramatic, consistent ingredient that makes a difference on my skin. I started by using the top of the line, pioneer brands when Vit C was first exploding in serum form on the markets - I have tried (and still occasionally use) the MOST expensive Vit C/Vit C-Ferulic combinations out there - there is only one that rivals Paula's, for me personally, but it is nearly 4x the price - the only reason I sometimes use that serum over Paula's is the incredibly soothing and calming texture the higher priced one offers - other than that, I can honestly say that this product - in terms of addressing fine lines, firming, and evening skin texture and providing a healthy glow - is an absolute WINNER. I do agree you get a small amount of product, but Vit C stability and freshness are important, so the batches SHOULD be small! I use this twice a day so using up product before it finishes is not an issue for me. The smell?????? My only comment is, no it does not smell like roses at first - but the slightly strange smell dissipates quickly and is a tiny price to pay for the results this delivers! Paula's Choice is a brand that is so consistent and demonstrates so much integrity, it's impressive. An awesome Vitamin C product.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Just not sure
from Cincinnati, Ohio
I have purchased this several times over the years because i believe a good quality vitamin c serum is essential. However, i've caved once again and gone back to Skinceuticals Vitamin C and E Ferulic because of the research behind it and because i know it is effective. Having said that, i believe that PC products are very well formulated. I just find it difficult to tell how well it is working. Basically I switch between the two products. I've used other vitamin c serums and don't trust in the manufacturer. I listen to the Beauty Brains podcast and they seem to have a high regard for PC.

No noticible results
By Barbara Pym groupie
from Toronto, On
First off, thus is the most expensive skincare product I have ever purchased. I had extremely high hope for the vitamin c booster, having read rave reviews of it and Paula's Choice in general all over the Internet, however thus product has been the most disappointing of everything I've ordered. To start, I'm 39, Caucasian with pale skin that is neither oily nor dry, I get the odd pimple during my menstrual periods and am only just starting to get fine lines on my forehead. I wear sunscreen religiously and often hats but have a few age spots on each cheek bone. I bought this for brightening and age protection, and despite using it morning and night since mid-December utility now (mid April) I have not noticed any fading of age spots or any other improvements.Furthermore, with twice daily use, I have only been able to use about 40% of the product before it began to visibly oxidize and turn orange. This is extremely frustrating with the dropper packaging that allows for quite a bit of air exposure. I'm not sure why something as unstable as vitamin c is not packaged in an airtight pump.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Salami Smell on Face for Months for ... Nothing
from Montreal, Canada
I first tried a sample. A PC rep told me it was too small to see a noticeable difference, that I need to buy the large bottle and continue treatment, that it would help with redness, dryness, and general skin improvement. So I did, but the full bottle did NONE of it. AND it has the strongest smell of ANY PC products I have ever used (like salami). And as many have already stated here, it oxidizes WAY too quickly, so halfway through the bottle, you are left with an orange liquid. Not worth the money. Never purchasing it again. Stay away. Worst PC product ever.
Service and delivery comments:
Delivery is never prompt and takes 3-4 weeks minimum if you live in Canada. I purchased the full bottle during a promo where they gave me a free trial size of this same product (2nd trial size I have used) but that small bottle was completely oxidized when it arrived. They sent me a new one but that also took another 3-4 weeks to arrive. Be careful with this product. The large bottle may have transparent liquid in it, but the sample size bottle may be completely orange by the time you receive it, depending on where you live.
Oxidizes too fast- money down drain
By Karen DeCosta
from Louisville, KY
I am a loyal PC user - have been for 11 years. This product continues to be the biggest disappointment and money waster. It oxidizes to a dark brown color way before the 3 month period. I have kept buying it but no more. This time I have over half a bottle left which has to be thrown out. Over a year it equates to approximately 1/2 bottle 4 times. Not a way to keep loyal customers.

Broke out horribly
from New York, New York
I wanted to use this on my acne scars but it made my cystic acne so much worse than it has ever been. I have not noticed an improvement on the rest of my face where I don't get acne.

This product should be air-tight in a darker bottle, period.
I am almost fully dedicated to PC products, so this annoys me."Keep in mind that all antioxidants, including pure vitamin C and its more stable variations, remain vulnerable, and will break down if routinely exposed to air and light. That means if you want to get the best possible results from your antioxidant-enriched skincare products, then buy only those that are packaged in opaque tubes, air-restrictive bottles, or pump containers so the ingredients remain stable after you start using the product! A vitamin C product in a jar isn't a good purchase!" -Paula's Choicehttp://www.paulaschoice.com/expert-advice/anti-aging/_/how-does-vitamin-c-help-skin
Irritates my skin
I wanted to use this product - I think Vit C it would be beneficial to my skin. But this product gives me an itchy rash no matter how I use it - straight or diluted with other serums. Disappointing since I am a faithful PC user.

About Me Minimalist
I have had my eye on this product for quite some time and finally justified buying it because I just wasn't happy with my skins appearance. I felt that I always had to wear makeup because my skin gets oily and red. Plus I have been experiencing random breakouts. But after using this product for a couple weeks my skin is softer, less oily throughout the day so my make up last longer, and my breakouts have vanished. I use this product in conjunction with three other products from the resist line. In love.
Delivery was 2 days early

needs better packaging
from San Francisco
It should be a smaller amount at a better price point in an air and light-proof container. It oxidizes long before it should and at that price/size it's frustrating. I can't afford the 4 bottles a year that the "use within 3 months" instructions entail.
