One of the few PC products that I dislike - bad texture.
from Hinsdale, IL
About Me Beauty Conscious
Comments about RESIST Retinol Serum - 1 oz:
PC products have completely changed my skin, but this one is not a keeper. The sticky texture makes it basically unusable for me, and much to my chagrin I think I will throw it out before using it up. It's a thick, sappy substance that does not absorb well into my skin and makes me wake up feeling like my face is dirty and greasy instead of glowy. To be blunt, I hate it.I strongly prefer the clinical 1% retinol treatment, which is much more like a serum/light cream and absorbs beautifully.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Packaging is terrible
from Chattanooga, TN
About Me Minimalist
It is difficult to rate the product itself because I find myself using it only part of the time because the packaging is terrible. Upon opening the box the first time, the top part of the dispenser fell off. Ever since, the dispenser will not seat properly on the pump and so only dribbles of product come out. It may be that this product, like the many PC products I have used in the past, is fabulous. But using this is an exercise in frustration each and every time.

Breakouts and Blackheads Galore!
About Me Beauty Expert
I loved how this product made me glow, but it was way too greasy and heavy and has left me with a very large blackhead problems on my face, but especially around my chin and lips and even forehead. I started to also breakout around my chin. It's AWEFUL!! I have to go to a dermatologist to the blackheads extracted two different times!

Have gotten beautiful results from using this serum. My skin is prone to mild breakouts, but using this serum they are now almost non existent, a big bonus is also waking up every morning to glowing skin!I use it almost every night.Have Tried the clinical 1% retinol and that was a bit to potent for me while this one delivers fantastic results with no kick back for me.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

from Okotoks Alberta Canada
I've purchased this 3 X and I love it. I have very sensitive skin and I do not like fragrance so this product I adore. It is unscented and works really well. I find it very moisturizing. Holy grail product

Decided to try this product, noticed my chin area was rough and starting to look a little pitted. I have used it for a month, and have seen results. Skin is smooother, and chin looks better already. I haven't had any skin irritation or problems at all. Was actually surprised to see the other comments, that woman have had issues. I am also using the 10% resist weekly treatment. I use it 3 or 4 times a week.

from New York, New York
This product indeed is not very good. It breaks me out and it does not absorb well. Also, I have not noticed any changes yet, I have had it for about 8 months now. You are supposed to see results after 2 months... right?Such an expensive product for such poor quality and benefits.

Breaks me out
from Washington DC
This breaks me out every time I try to use it. I put it on at night and I wake up with little blemishes and rough skin. I will try another retinol product because I feel like there is something in this formula that doesn't agree with my skin at all. Bummer, because this wasn't cheap.

Didn't like the texture at all.
from Nowhere, South Carolina.
About Me Skin Care Professional
It's a very heavy product with a thick, oily, silicone feel. It's the only PC product I have disliked. My skin is REALLY dry and it's too heavy for me. If I use this with a primer, I get that weird, pebbled texture that too much silicone can create. Yuck. Yuck. Yuck. I have used beauty oils and/or boosters for a few years and I love them. I love the other PC retinol products and have Alpha and Beta exfoliants. My pores are feeling and looking coarse and I have blemishes! That never happens. Stay away. All the other retinol products are great.

This is my first time using a retinol product and I am in love! I use PC products exclusively and my skin has never looked better. I alternate using this serum at night (2x a week now and will increase to maybe 3-4) with the Resist Antioxidant serum. It is a thicker serum, which doesn't bother me, and sinks into skin within a couple minutes. It is too soon to see major changes, but so far so good!
