Comments about RESIST Skin Firming Line Minimizer - 0.5 oz:
I wanted to like this product, really. I'm a huge PC fan and only use her products. This one is a total dud. It looks like water, dispenses like water and has no effect, just like water. I used the entire bottle daily and there was no difference at all. None. It was very expensive and very ineffective. When you look at the ingredients, where Paula lists the purpose of the ingredients, you can see that most ingredients relate to hydration. So if your skin is more hydrated I guess it would appear firmer. However when you layer on multiple treatments and serums, I just think this either gets lost in the mix or can't perverse because of all the other products you are layering on. Most of Paula's products actually do something to improve the skin, this one appears to just improve the temporary appearance and it didn't even do that for me. First time I feel like I wasted money on a Paula's choice product. On the positive side I love the dispenser and wish this was offered for the vitamin c 15 serum. The oxidation on that product is a nightmare and this crafty, easy to use dispenser would work great for that product.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I'm on my second bottle, honestly I do not think that it changed my fine lines much, but I haven't noticed new ones so far, that's why plan to keep buying for preventing purposes
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Nearest Thing to a Miracle My Skin Has Experienced!
from Lake Orion, Michigan
About Me Minimalist
I use and like many Paula's Choice products. I first bought this about a year ago just to try a new product. I use it primarily for the skin under and around my eyes because that skin was getting saggy, bumpy and like chicken skin. I found it very difficult to apply makeup to this area and not look caked and awful. I had no hopes or expectations for this product, but I began applying every night all around my eye area. I was pleased there was no irritation (as I often get with product around my eyes) and after about 21 days I noticed a marked improvement in the chicken skin texture. After a couple of months, the area had returned to smooth and fresh appearing. I would never be without this product again. Although I have excellent results with all of Paula's products -- this is the product I will be super upset if they ever discontinue it because it has made such a remarkable change to my skin.I am astonished to see other people did not get great results with this product. It just proves that each person is very different and you have to try things, use them as directed and consistently, and it might be a miracle for you too.

Love this product!!

About Me Beauty Conscious
I can not understand all the negative reviews on this product. This product is excellent!! I use it every morning and night under my eyes and over my lips. It has taken away all the fine lines under my eyes and the deep lines over my lips. It is one of the best products that Paula sells.You have to give this product a chance, at least 2-4 weeks before seeing exceptional results. If you do not stick with it that long, you will not see the results you want and it will seem like it doesn't work and believe me this product DOES WORK!!

Use this every day
from Ontario, Canada
I'm really surprised at some of the negative comments posted in reviews. I love this product and use it every day. Although a bit pricey, I find that it lasts me a long time, so it balances out. It dispenses very easily, so you get the amount you want (a little goes a long way!), and are not wasting any. I use it under my eyes and in the "crow's feet" area, my forehead, above my lip, the nasal-labial area and also my cheeks. I know only Botox will reverse and prevent wrinkling of the forehead, but keeping the skin in the best condition possible certainly plays an important part in minimizing those wrinkles! I have sensitive skin, and find that this product does not irritate it. It's light, and applies very easily, and is quickly absorbed. I think it's important that it be used on a daily basis, not just occasionally. I personally feel it has helped my skin, especially in promoting firmness. Highly recommended.

Good Product when used as a serum!
By Leslie B.
from Chicago Suburbs
About Me Skin Care Professional
I gave this product a second chance because I like niacinamide but am sensitive to Vitamin C. This product works best for me when I use it at night all over as a serum. Using it this way is time consuming (given the dispenser) and expensive, but it's really the only way that this product is effective. I have begun to exfoliate only once a day (daytime) and using this product at night is very effective in maintaining a smooth and relatively clear appearance. I can see why people who only spot apply it think that it is a dud. I think that it should be made a little more spreadable (it absorbs super quickly!) and repackaged as a serum. Please do NOT add silicone. I would rather it be thin than have the formula compromised. I use my Oil Booster on top. Please do not let this fantastic product fall out of PC's lineup. The ingredients and the research were right. The suggested usage and price point is wrong.

I use several products from the Resist line, but will not repurchase this. Used since it was first introduced and have seen no improvement in my skin.
Works great around my eyes
By Picky shopper
from Akron, OH
I was developing a strange crepiness under my eyes. I really don't know how else to describe it-- the skin sort of pulled and bunched and wrinkled all at the same time. My skin tends towards dry but in general it is in great shape, as I've been diligent with my skin care for decades, using Paula's Choice and Beautypedia recommended products (I'm 49).I tried various eye creams, but nothing really addressed the problem. I am thrilled to say that the Resist Skin Firming Line Minimizer has fixed this issue! I dab it on every night, and rarely will use it in the morning also. The skin under my eyes is soft and the fine lines I was developing really do seem reduced. I really was becoming concerned about the skin around my eyes and what the future might hold, and I'm grateful to have found this product. Yes, it's a bit pricey, but it works, and it's the only thing I've found that truly corrects the weird issues I was having.I have also tried applying this serum on my naso-labial lines (smile lines?) and on my forehead. I've stopped using it on my forehead as it didn't seem to have any impact and it's too expensive to use on areas it won't treat. I'm on the fence about the smile lines--I think it may help somewhat, but it's not as instantly noticeable as it is on the skin around my eyes. However, I'm betting on the positive, so I do dab a small amount on my smile lines every night.

What is this supposed to do?
from Bend, OR
I used most of the container as directed and then stopped bothering as I noticed absolutely no effect whatsoever. I generally love PC products and have reordered several as they are effective, but on this one, I feel as though I completely wasted my money. :-( Pass on this one.

I have used Paula's products for almost 15 years and will not use any other skin care products. However, this product is not effective. I noticed no results whatsoever. This was a great disappointment since I was looking forward to this product (and it did not help that it was so expensive).
