    I don't think I've ever been this excited about a serum before. This came included in the Winter Skin set along with the Resist Toner and Resist AHA. It's really been a miracle worker. My traditionally oily/combination skin was dried out from both the winter weather and acne prescriptions (retinA and then epiduo). This transformed my skin back to balance. At first, I was worried that the heavier consistency would leave my T-zone oily but that has not been the case. My skin feels softer and more hydrated. I follow this with the RESIST Super-Light Wrinkle Defense SPF 30 and I'm ready to go!

    A nice lightweight moisturizing "serum"

    Cons

        I've used Paula's products for many years now, and this is a first in terms of serums. In fact, I would not classify this as a serum but a lightweight moisturizer. I've been using it for a few months, and it strikes me as a great warm/hot weather moisturizer that layers well under other beauty products and makeup. I am left with an imperceptible finish - no silicone or oily residue. This products absorbs completely into my skin and during the winter months, so I have been using a moisturizing sunscreen and/or foundation over it because I like to feel a little more moisturized in the winter months with dry, cold air and indoor heating. My skin looks good for 42, so unless a product does something extraordinary for it, I cannot tell. This is one of those products where I can't really tell a difference from it, but I use it thinking it is beneficial and helping my overall appearance of combatting fine lines. For example, I really saw a difference when using the vitamin C, retinol, or AHA products. This one, not so much.

        That being said, it is neither drying or overly hydrating. At first I thought I could use this as a primer, but it doesn't leave that smooth of a feel. The serum name confuses me because all my other serums deliver their benefits in some form of oil - this doesn't. I'd think combo or oily skin complexions would benefit greatly from this. I'd probably buy this again in the summer when I run out, but would not do so again for winter months. I saw it as a good mix-up to my skin routine, knowing my skin gets used to the same old products day in/day out.

            I agree with others who have noted that this product feels very nice on the skin. It is a pleasure to use--lightweight, silky, non-greasy, refreshing. I especially like the way it feels around my eyes, since it isn't heavy. It feels soothing. But also like others, i don't really See an improvement, and i have used two bottles. Well, i still trust it does something beneficial. Maybe because we take such good care of our skin and use so many good products from Paula, we don't see any difference as we add this one. Others who are just starting a skin care program might see dramatic results. I would recommend for those customers. And even for those who have been using Paula's products for years, you might want to try this if you feel you need a soothing product that lightly moisturizes-- during the summer, for example, one may find it an ideal substitute for heavier products.

              I introduced this to my A.M. routine in place of Calm Serum for winter. I wanted a bit more moisture. This does the trick, I won't say I'm overexcited about the results but its like an action packed, lightweight moisturizer i put on before just before makeup ( allergic to sunscreen so don't start judging y'all). Have not noticed the smell others talk about. My hubby uses this everyday and i haven't noticed the smell on him either.

              I used this product as recommended but found it really made no difference other than providing some moisture to my skin that could be felt but not seen. It is costly for that kind of result.

                Great addition to my skin care routine. I saw family at Christmas and my mother commented that my skin looked great. I like how lightweight it is and has not caused any breakouts or irritation (and my skin reacts to everything!!). You won't regret getting this.

                  I was in the market for a new Serum and snagged this one during a sale since I needed more ceramides and barrier improving ingredients. I was surprised by the texture of this since it's more like a cream. The smell grew on me and now I love it. It automatically soothes my skin and I'm just a couple weeks of use , my skin is less red and just feels nicer. Will probably repurchase. Plus I like that it's a pump so I don't end up using too much product unlike my favorite 2% perfecting liquid

                    I wish I had the words to describe what this product means to me. I have used every possible serum, program, regimen, diet, and lifestyle change you can imagine to treat my acne. I have used horrible drugs that left my skin scarred and damaged, and developed a legitimate psychological disorder of OCD that I've utilized therapy to mend. Every single day, I would go to the mirror with dread. I turned the lights off when I brushed my teeth so I couldn't see my reflection. I combed my hair in the reflection of a painting so I couldn't see my skin. I change my pillowcases every night, and I don't drink, smoke, or consume dairy, sugar, chocolate, high glycemic carbs, you name it. Acne, by all definitions, destroyed my confidence and frankly my sanity for the better part of a decade. Now, utilizing this omega serum, things have gotten so much better I don't know how to say thank you without being overdramatic. I have my life back. No more therapy, no horrible prescriptions, no tears, no anger, no broken mirrors in disgrace that I was different from everybody else. I would pay hundreds of dollars for this serum; I would drive across the country and sleep in the back of my car for over 2500 miles to pick it up. I haven't felt so wonderful about myself since I was just a kid. Whoever designed this, I love you. Whoever marketed it, I love you. You will never understand how much this means to me, and what kind of world I'm finally experiencing with the ability to go outside and hold my head high. It was a miracle product, and I've never said that about anything else in my life. I'm not sure I ever will again.

                    This product is just okay. It applies smooth and provides light moisture without being heavy. However, I'm not sure it's adding anything to my routine or making my skin any different. It doesn't make much of a difference whether I use it or not. I will likely not repurchase.
