Excellent makeup primer!

Comments about RESIST Skin Brightening Treatment - 1 oz:
I am pleased with quality of the brightening treatment. I am a very long time Paula's Choice user and try most things she puts out at least once. I've only been using this for about three weeks, so I can't comment on the very long term results, but thus far I can say it is a great addition to my skin care arsenal. Also, this works absolutely beautifully under makeup. I usually use Hourglass's primer which is very expensive. I was in a rush one morning and applied my makeup directly on top of this brightener and was so surprised how it worked even better than my usual primer! And of course the ingredients are far more beneficial for skin, so I'm happy to give up my Hourglass primer for this product. For makeup wearers, it kills two birds with one stone. Thanks Paula & team!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Won't buy again
from New Jersey
I used the whole tube and saw no difference in my skin. My brown spots are still exactly as they were and my skin is neither better, nor worse. I will not buy again.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

from Houston, TX
I have used samples of this product off and on for 2 weeks. While I cannot speak to the long term effects (yet), I can say that when worn under my Resist Super Light Moisturizer +SPF, my complexion looks way brighter- like by a shade or two. I don't get an "eagle effect," but I certainly can tell the difference. And the texture is silky, absorbs easily, and plays nice with my other serums and moisturizer. Also seems to play well with my Rx retinoid.Niacinamide and Acetyl Glucosamine (in my opinion) will likely be effective in the long term at preventing further hyperpigmentation. I already use a product with hydroquinone, which Paula says is the "gold standard" for reducing hyperpigmentation that has already appeared. I plan to buy a full sized tube and using this in conjunction with the hydroquinone to maintain the results I see from the hydroquinone product. I really like this product. I will grant a fifth star once I have been using it long term and see the fruits of the "long term relationship."

About Me Beauty Conscious, Skin Care Guru
My skin absolutely loves this stuff, and drinks it right in. I use it in combo with a PC antioxidant serum (I switch between a couple depending on the season), and it makes my skin just glow. It doesn't work well to completely fade dark or red spots, but it does help. I've also tried the C Booster, but my skin loves this better and I will continue to use it as long as PC makes it. Love it!

Gives a nice glow
from Berkeley, CA
About Me Minimalist
I'm not sure if it is lightening my melasma, but it gives a really nice healthy glow. I think it's great as a light brightening moisturizer. Several friends have recently told me how great my skin is looking. Still trying to perfect my regime, but I'm really liking the resist 2% bha, followed by this, maybe a light moisturizer, and the weekly 4% bha.

About Me Skin Care Professional
After having used this product for about a month and a half, I've come to the conclusion that I like it and will continue to use it, but also that the results (at least in my case) are very gradual and difficult to track on a short-term basis.Although the product has had some benefit for me, I think that perhaps the customer who benefits most is one concerned with a dull or uneven appearance that isn't sufficiently treated by their BHA/AHA or retinol products.I have tracked some modest improvement in existing hyperpigmentation, but it's difficult to tell except where the skin is thinnest and most delicate (e.g. the under eye area). Also, I've been using the C15 Booster and Vitamin C Spot Treatment regularly on my cheeks, so I can't definitively say how much improvement should be attributed to which product(s) for spots in that area.I'd recommend this product even though I haven't experienced utterly transformative results (spoiled by other PC products, I suppose). Paula and Team are pretty upfront about hydroquinone being the gold standard treatment ingredient for hyperpigmentation, so I'd try that first if seriously concerned about discoloration. For me this product is more about maintenance and helping to prevent the formation of new dark spots while slowly chipping away at old ones. The quality ingredients that make this a well-rounded, lightly hydrating serum are also a plus.

Didn't work for me
I've just finished a tube of this. Used it twice a day, boosted in spots by C25. I also left one spot untreated. No difference. Didn't do a thing except moisterize.

It removed all my brown spots.
By Robyn C
from Toronto, Canada
After 7 days enjoying a well deserve vacation in Bahamas, I came back home full of dark spots on my face. I did use SPF and a hat at the beach. Nevertheless, my face was affected by sun exposure. I ordered Resist Skin Brightening, used the product to its very end. Applied the produc day and night religiously. My face never been this clear, I barely use foundation anymore. It works!

Made such a difference!
from Raleigh, NC
I got this treatment as a sample with another order, and after 3 days I had to buy it! I have very pale and sensitive skin. I usually put it on before my face moisturizer at night, and wake up with bright, glowing skin. I'm so glad I tried PC products.

Great for Brightening & Boosts Lighteners
This product is great! I stumbled upon Paula's Choice by reading Beautypedia reviews. In the past six months, every single one of my old products have been replaced by PC! Really nothing is better! First, this is an excellent brightener, it brightens up my dull skin & perfect to brighten my dark circles, though not fully eliminate them. Also, while I dont think it is enough to fade my dark spots, when I used it alone I didnt see a dramatic difference in fading my spots. However, when paired with the Dark Spot Eraser &/or the 25% Vit C Spot Treatment, it is a potent little cocktail for fading dark spots! It is so lightweight and silky, and gives skin a nice glow. My advice: May not be a product to hang your hat on to fade or eliminate dark spots, but when paired with hydroquoinone and potent Vitamin C, it works wonders! Also, if you ever have any questions about a product, how to use it, or product advice, Paula's Choice customer service is awesome! They always answer all my questions quickly!
