works on acne...who knew?
By Catherine Hogue

About Me Beauty Conscious
Comments about RESIST 25% Vitamin C Spot Treatment - 0.5 oz:
I'm 47 with dry skin that still breaks out occasionally (nose/t-zone) area. I've used the full suite of Paula products for about 10 years and while I occasionally dabble in another line, I'm loyal to the results I've experienced. I received a sample tube of this and tried it out on a couple of little acne scars. No change to the scar tissue itself but over several weeks redness faded. I used a little on a pimple that popped up on my nose overnight and was suprised that it flattened and then disappeared the same day. Since then I've used this as a go to product on little breakouts and it is very effective.
Service and delivery comments:
Quick delivery, as always.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Magical. Like a gift from my Fairy Godmother
from Rockville, MD
About Me Minimalist
I've had frustrating, oily, blemish-prone skin since my early teens and nothing has ever fixed it. Doctors, Dermatologists, $100 a bottle exfoliants, etc., until I ordered a full routine's worth of products from Paula's Choice, I've never felt that I didn't have terrible skin. After two months my skin tone is much more even, I'm not having breakouts, my face doesn't feel gross and oily AND the damaged collagen on my nose (that "dent" in your skin that lingers after a pimple is gone, which drove me INSANE) is barely visible. From the reading I've done, I think the Vitamin C treatment had a lot to do with that, but more than anything I just want to suggest doing your whole routine with Paula's Choice. I use the Oil-Reducing Cleanser, 2% BHA Exfoliant, this treatment and Invisible Finish Moisture Gel. I'm about to order more of this, some toner and something with SPF. Thanks PC, you're the best!!
Timely delivery, nothing damaged and had all these free samples!

work for postacne marks
from Dallas, TX
About Me Beauty Expert
I didn't noticed any difference in my brown spots, but it helps with fresh acne marks. I'm very fair skin person and every occasional spot leaves behind a very red mark, no matter it was pop out or not. This stuff cut the recovery time to two-three weeks, when before it was taking month to disappear. I apply it every evening on the marks as my last step in routine.

worked for me!
I really liked this product, not sure why everyone says it dries pasty or whatever. You dab it on but make sure its absorbed into the skin. Dont leave excess on your skin. I had a few acne scars on my face, and after applying it twice daily on my skin for 2 weeks I noticed it visibly lightened. After 2-3 months, it disappeared. I later combined this with bha 9 and vitamin c boost but honestly this is the product that i used daily. Also, make sure if you apply it during the day to use sunscreen with a strong spf as vitamin c will make your skin more sensitive to the sun. No sunscreen means your skin may get worse. I honestly love this product and cant rave enough about it to friends and family. My aunt who noticed my improved skin has even remarked on it and now is ordering one too.

I Wanted it to Work
from Boston, MA
I have been using this treatment for over three month every other night as dark spot treatment. I have a few dark sun spots on my cheekbones and under one eye. This product has not improved their appearance at all. As other reviewers mentioned it is chalky and sometimes doesn't play well with other products - it curdles/clumps. Please note that in addition to this I also use resist serum and brightening treatment. Alas, my spots are here to stay, and my money's been wasted yet again. General thoughts:After trying a lot of Paula's products (treatments and oily/combo stuff ) I have decided to stick only with Resist and try nothing else, because it really really works for my skin, which is normal/oily in the summer and spring and normal/dry in the winter.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Works beautifully on my rosacea. I don't want to be without this amazing product. It has been a miracle for me.

Not sure about the texture
Hi, the color of the cream is white and texture a bit dry which is surprising. It becomes a tad powdery/mattefying after applying onto face . Is this expected ? I feel like I've bought the wrong product. I was expecting the texture to be wetter since the description of the product includes hydrating .

I tried this product to get rid of an acne scar from years ago on my nose. I've used this for a couple months with no difference and it actually makes me break out. Wish it worked!

Diminished unknown raised rough skin bump on décolletage!
This product was used to diminish a small rough bump of skin that had appeared on my chest. I thought it was a keloid scar, but maybe it was a wart?? I was going to see a dermatologist about it, but I tried it and noticed right away that it started to dry out the area. Then with dedicated application once a night the area become more dry and just shrunk away! I've now been applying all over my face. Or on a variety of blemishes just to see what happens. On zits, little red spider veins etc. I'll update if I notice anything remarkable.

Helps with hyperpigmentation if you apply it early enough
About Me Skin Care Professional
I use this for post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, and I've found that the trick to using it is to apply it WHILE the pimple is forming. I like to think that you're catching it before all the damage is done i.e. prevention. Older marks don't seem to be affected by this at all unfortunately, hence only 4 stars. But, it's still one of the most effective treatments for reducing pigmentation, so I highly recommend trying it out.
