Comments about RESIST Skin Brightening Treatment - 1 oz:
I used two tubes of this product I do think it helped a bit with overall brighting and helping my post acne marks heal faster. Its very lightweight and easy to layer with other products. It wears well during the day under SPF and cosmetics or at night with other serums. I love how quickly it sinks into the skin and dries but its also a hydrating serum, I would buy again if I think my skin is starting to look dull or blotchy.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Expected to hate it, but fell in love after 3 days!

I received this as a free bonus gift with an order I placed on Cyber Monday. Being as I've hated every primer-like product I've ever tried, I expected this to end up being rendered to me "giveaway" cosmetics drawer, but something unexpected happened; I fell in love! First, it didn't clog my pores the way silicone-laden primers have in the past. I gave it 2 weeks to prove itself before leaving this review. I apply about a pea size amount all over my fave and eye area before applying makeup. I have moderate hyperpigmentation and didn't expect this to make a difference. I love how invisible this feels. It's super light and slips across the skin without leaving a slick or tacky feel. It doesn't make makeup ball up. It actually feels serum like, yet smooths like a primer. I notice a difference in skin smoothness and brightness when I wear this, either on full makeup, or little makeup days. It makes my skin look better. Last night (after two weeks of use) I'm beginning to notice my pigmented areas (chloasma) lightening a bit and blending into the rest of my skin tone. The effect is subtle, but any little bit of improvement helps, since I can't have laser and I have to use caution with hydraquinone. Overall, this is a 5 star product I will be reordering! Please don't discontinue this product, Paula! It rocks!
First Impression perfect!

I use this twice a day after serum, mostly around m eyes because its shimmery and pretty. I have sensitive skin and I have to be careful with brightening products, but this just soaks in and moisturizes my skin with no irritation. I haven't been using it long enough to tell if it will change my skin significantly but so far I'm a huge fan.

My complexion is brighter and even toned after using this product. Also, the texture is great for application under make up. So many of the newer PC products contain glucoside, which is an allergen for me, so I'm thrilled this one doesn't. Please don't discontinue!
I have been using this product for a few years and I love it. I use it once daily under my makeup. I took a break from it once and my skin looked dull, the dark circles appeared darker. It really works for me and gives a glow to my skin. Thumbs up!
Gave me a serious reaction
I have pretty sensitive skin, but usually have really good results with Paula's products. This product I had ordered as a sample to try, and immediately after applying it my skin started turning red all over with intense burning. I washed it off and it stopped. Just as a reference, I've only ever had issues with the AHA and BHA products drying my skin out too much and slightly irritating it long term, but I've never had a reaction this bad from any other Paula's product. Lesson learned. Always test a small spot first.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Want to love this, but don't

I wanted to love this product, but it burns when I put it on and makes me get redder. Those effects, do diminish, but it discourages me from using the product.I would love any suggestions for a substitute for my dry/combo skin that is pretty sensitive.

Works for me!
By Lynn L.
from Irvine, CA
I've been using this product for 8 months and it really does even out my skin tone. It's not a dramatic difference but I can tell that my skin looks duller if I don't use it regularly. For me, it will not completely fade my dark spots but only lighten them slightly. I have yet to find a product that fades dark spots. I have very acne prone combination skin and this is the only lightweight serum I have found that does not break me out and I have tried many.

First time I got this product as a sample, loved it. The second time I made a purchase from PC, I selected for all three of my free samples to be this product, loved it some more. This time I am back to get the full sized one. I use this every other day in my bedtime routine and I just cannot stop loving the glow. I have a very skinny face with big dark circles around my eyes and every little break out leaves discoloration. I made the first sample last me two uses and a few days later had forgotten that I used it when I noticed the glow of my face, then I realized that it was from this product. At first I did hesitate to put it on my face since it has shimmers, which tend to clog the pores, but if you keep up with your skincare routine you will be fine, I saw no downsides. I hope you ladies give it a try. Nothing ever works on me and this did, I was very excited.

I haven't used this long enough to comment on its long term benefits, however I'm blown away by how it looks under makeup. The first time I used this under makeup I was shocked when I saw my skin in awful florescent light in a public bathroom. Not to hype this product but it was almost magical. The bright opalescent color of this product must be why, under makeup, my skin looked perfected. The other reason is, I have shiny, oily skin, and so I can use this product as a moisturizer on its own, and because it's so light, my skin stays matte for much, much longer when using under makeup. Matte but still glowing in a non oily way. Under makeup and when I use alone, hours pass by and my skin never looks overly oily with this product. It's sorta nuts! I've bought loads of samples of this to make sure it doesn't break me out, and I'm almost sure it does not! You've gotta try this alone for a makeup primer, and see if you have the same experience! And for those with oily skin, try it as a moisturizer. After the Skin Balancing Moisture Gel formula was changed in late 2015 and began irritating my skin for whatever reason (so sad about that still), I've been desperate and failing to find anything that kept my skin calm and not overly oily, and nothing has come close apart from this product. I tried the Skin Balancing Toner as a moisturizer for some time and after awhile couldn't believe how it felt so greasy on my skin especially as the day went on; it definitely didn't keep my skin matte under makeup. I'm hoping I continue to have success with this product as a moisturizer and makeup primer. Try samples, at the very least! I love how it glides onto my skin after I wash my face; I put it on right after while my skin is still wet, maybe something about that is why it works for me.
