My skin is glowing

Comments about Power Couple: Resist C15 + Resist Retinol Serum - Complete Duo:
I use this combination daily at night. During the day I will use the Resist C 15 with my moisturizer. The texture of my skin has changed and it feels more hydrated without feeling oily. I was always afraid to use any product that seemed oily because of my oily combination skin. This is a perfect duo. People that I haven't seen in a while say that my skin is glowing! I have not been afraid to go without make-up!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

About Me Beauty Conscious
I've been using these products together and separately for nearly a month and really haven't noticed a positive/negative change in my skin. I really like the texture/consistency of the serum but I really don't like the smell of the C15 (it has a rotten smell to me) I've really been getting into anti-aging products over the last year and haven't noticed a lick of difference with anything I've used. I think I just got caught up with all the hype. Aging is inevitable so I'll just deal with it :)
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I use this duo along with the Resist barrier Repair. I am 44 years old and while I have tired everything under the sun, I had never heard of Paula's Choice. After viewing a utube tutorial I decided to try it. I have never used a retinol product so this is a first. I used it for the first week daily and while my skin "felt" a little sensitive, it didn't look irritated in fact it looked the best ever. The reason for the sensitivity was (I believe I could be wrong) was the new skin coming through after soughing off the old. I love the fact that these products can be used under the eye. My skin looks better than it did in my twenties. I can't believe how much money I have wasted on products that don't work. The serum is so silky my skin drinks it up and for a "retinol" it actually soothes it. Basically this duo and the barrier repair is cheaper than some eye creams I have used in the past. This stuff works and people of all ages should be using it. So glad I watch utube!! Just make 100% sure you use sunscreen! Your skin will be like a baby's, very new and needing that protection. This is the fountain of youth. These products can be used during the day as well..sunscreen sunscreen sunscreen!!!

Surprisingly nice results
By Makeup Maven
from Great Lakes
About Me Beauty Conscious, Beauty Expert
Because I have sensitive skin, I started with just the C15 for 2 nights. No issue, so I added in the Retinol serum, and used this mixture every other night for about 5 days to let my skin adjust. Now I use the mixture every night. No breakouts or irritation.It's been about 3-1/2 weeks now and my skin is more radiant. I also think some of the tiny creases around my eyes are beginning to fill in a bit. Normally products like this take 8-12 weeks to show results, but so far so good. I really have no cons at all, not even the packaging - so far it's working well for me. Next week I'll try adding the BHA Lotion on top at night as well for maximum benefits.

Breaks me out
By Christina, L
I really wanted to love this, especially considering how expensive it is, but the C15 makes my skin break out in little bumps. I tried using it with the wrinkle serum and didn't know which one was causing the reaction. So I used them seperately and found out is was the C15. I don't have sensitive skin, so I'm not sure why I'm having a reaction to it. I'm really disappointed. I haven't really seen a difference with the serum yet either, but I will keep using it util it's gone.
Customer Service Response: Hi Christina! Thank you for sharing your experience, and we're sorry the C15 didn't work out here. If you would contact our Customer Care Team, they would be happy to help with a refund, exchange or answer any questions.

Completely transformed my skin
By Amanda M
I no longer need to use my 10% Benzoyl Peroxide to keep my acne at bay. This retinol serum (and C15) along with the 2% BHA Liquid have completely cleared and brightened my whole complexion. The metal and lunch meat smell (comes from ferulic acid) in the C15 is totally worth the results =] I will forever repurchase and recommend this duo!

This power couple is AMAZING! I used the Retinol serum before the C-15 was introduced and was satisfied as it was better than the 20 other overpriced high end serums I've used but combined with C-15 it is impossible to go without. My face is brighter, smoother, firmer, clearer, and I can forgo foundation! Most days I just throw on SPF 30 and a smile. My frown line has almost disappeared and at age 39 I am so happy I finally found something that actually does what it claims. Truly THANK YOU PAULA

A must have for anyone in their late 20's and up!!! I use this with Skin Balancing Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum with Retinol and the results are remarkable. I don't find the need to buy any other expensive products in the market since these are truly effective. My acne/ marks are under control, skin looks a lot smoother and younger!!! For anyone having issues with wrinkles and acne, this is a must have and don't forget that wonderful Serum!!! This is all I need!!!
Big difference in my skin
By MELISSA N.
After only three weeks of nightly use, I can feel the change in my skin - it's become much smoother to the touch! I'm also noticing fine lines and slackness diminishing. Since I have never used one without the other in this duo, I don't know if it's the serum, the booster, or a combination of the two, but I'm impressed!
By MICHELLE G.
I've been using this combo for about two weeks now and the results are amazing. I have always had oily skin, but in the past year or two it's also gotten really dry, on top of the oiliness. I've used Paula's products for 10+ years, and I hadn't found the right mix to take care of this new issue. Until now! I noticed results after the first use - my skin was smoother and softer than it had been in a long time. I would definitely recommend these!!
