Comments about RESIST Dark Spot Eraser 7% AHA - 1 oz:
I have used PC products before and have always been happy with the results. I read one specific review of this product that stated she "over used" and the results were amazing and I have to agree - I had 2 specific sun/age spots that were marginally hidden with makeup and after "over using" this product for about 2 weeks - the spots are significantly reduced to almost gone. I am not suggesting you over use this like I did (it did burn slightly because of the way I used it but it was well worth it because of the results!) I now use the product as directed because I no longer have to over use it and my skin looks great!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Faded my blotchy sun damage and surface acne scars!
from Alberta, Canada
About Me Beauty Conscious
I'm fair-skinned and had quite a noticeable amount of blotchy sun damage on my face, along with scars from every darned pimple I'd ever had. I read a review on here of this product stating you have to use it every day, preferably twice a day if you can, but it will work. Lo and behold, one tube in and the spots have faded considerably! Some have disappeared altogether, some are so light they're easily covered, but either way, I'm no longer embarrassed to show my face. I'm lucky enough not to have had a reaction to it like some folks, and mine doesn't smell at all.
Service and delivery comments:
Shipping and delivery are always prompt! It's incredible how quickly things are shipped to me from Paula's Choice. I love ordering from here.

Fades the spots....over time.
By Paula's Choice Fan
from South Hadley, MA
I've been using this product twice daily for about 6 weeks and I'm finally seeing some noticeable fading of a couple pinkish-brown spots that had taken up long-term residence on my face after over aggressive picking at blemishes. I will continue to use and hope the fading with continue too.

Excellent product; works as stated
from St. Paul, MN
About Me Minimalist
I am a fair-skinned, 52 year old with auburn hair, brown eyes who began noticing a small dark area on the bridge of my nose. Probably due to menopause. Within days of using this product as directed, a very small amount combined with a moisturizer in the am and when I went to sleep, the results were obvious and outstanding. I do not notice an odor when I use this product.While I love the outdoors I am not a sun worshipper and have always protected the beautiful skin I've been blessed with. I have always been more than pleased with all the products I have purchased from Paula's Choice upon discovering them while listening to a local radio show here in Mpls years ago. From superb product development to excellent customer service this company is a woman's best friend. Thank you!

Burned and stinks but WORKED!!!!
About Me Beauty Expert
I have used this product before with no results. I put a thin layer all over my face. I wasn't very consistent because it smells so bad. Well, I decided to try it again and go it all the way. My plan going in was if this doesn't work, I will take advantage of money back guarantee. I really caked it on the small area along my jawline with brown spots. I applied every night and occasionally a thin layer over area in day time. It left my skin red and irritated. The skin where I applied so heavily and regularly got very rough then the magic happened. That skin began flaking off and underneath - the new skin had NO BROWN SPOTS!!! I have stopped using product because spots are completely gone. For me, it took about 3 weeks.

Give it time and use correctly

About Me 50's, Mid Skin Tones
I use this product on my neck, twice a day, morning and evening. I have sun damage and really want to improve the look of my mottled, blotchy, red-neck skin.Let me say that first of all, you have to be patient - those dark spots didn't get there overnight so don't expect this to work in a few days. I use this after cleansing and as it can make your skin sensitive to the sun, a good time of year to really go for it is during the winter months. If not, you will need to cover up your treated areas with sunscreen spf 30 - and using sunscreen year round is a good practice too.The first week was a challenge - my skin got inflamed and I broke out in tiny lesions/pimples but I persevered. By changing how I use the product (I went from just dabbing it on to actually rubbing it into my skin) things improved and settled down by week three. I am now about 5 weeks/one tube into using the product and I can see that the damaged areas are considerably improved. Not completely eradicated, but lighter. I have gone from plastering concealer over my neck to only needing some tinted foundation and a dab of powder - and that is enough to hide what is left of my dark patches. After the second month I intend to step back the number of times I use the cream.Be aware that this cream needs to be kept in a solid closed container, so always replace the top after use. Also, my skin feels slightly "thinner" after using this.I intend to visit a dermatologist when I complete the treatment to see if laser treatment will knock this problem out of the park - but that will be pricey, so if you are looking for something cheaper that is effective, I would give this cream a try for a couple of months.
Brown Spots Stay Gone; Skin is Smooth & Glowing
from Columbus, OH
I've been using this for years and am more than pleased with the results. I am ultra fair, and this product has removed or drastically toned down bronzed areas on my cheeks/temples/nose, a small brown mole, and several age spots. I also have very sensitive skin but recently tried stepping it up to five evenings a week and was surprised to wake up to even more glowing smoothness. I now make a cocktail in the palm of my hand by mixing a smaller amount than I used to use in with my antioxidant and moisturizer, and then apply it to my face, neck, and chest. I add another layer of just moisturizer under my eyes. I do use a sunscreen every day, rain or shine, or the uneven skin tone will reappear.
I had a bad reaction.
from Tehachapi, CA
For a few weeks, I really liked how it began to lighten the melasma patches on my neck and cheeks. Unfortunately, I started to get very itchy, red, and raw in those areas and had to stop using it altogether. My dermatologist says some people develop allergies to hydroquinone, and I should stop. I wish that wasn't the case, because it did lighten effectively.

Does not work at all
from New York, NY
Boy, was I disappointed in the non-existent results of the Resist Dark Spot Eraser product. I swear by Paula's Choice and have recommended her products to friends, so it's nothing against the brand, per se, but this did ZILCH for my acne scars. I tried it on my face consistently, where I have pretty bad scars from over 10 years of acne, and also on a twin acne mark on my inner thigh. I saw no difference in either, and I'm pretty sure this might have made the inner thigh scars worse (they're now purple in color, rather than red). I feel like the more products that PC comes out with, the less effective it is for the entire brand, which is a real shame. There used to be a limited selection but good, quality products, and now it's becoming so diluted with boosters, spot erasers, fillers, etc. that it's starting to seem over-commercialized. I would not recommend this product to anyone, especially if you were really hoping to find something (outside of laser surgery) to get rid of scarring from acne.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
from NY, NY
I used this product every night before bed. I had high hopes for this product. It left my skin a little bit sensitive to bumps and acne and there were no visible changes in my dark spots. I also use a sunscreen with spf 50 everyday. I have seen more of a difference with the vitamin C serum when added to my moisturizer. However, this product did not work on my skin.
