What does it do?

Goes to work immediately to provide weightless hydration and an exclusive mix of antioxidants and grape-derived resveratrol. Together with skin-restoring and nourishing ingredients—hyaluronic acid and pore-improving niacinamide—this serum provides visible results, yet is so light, you won’t even know it’s there!

Collapse
How to use
Smooth a few drops onto face, neck and eye area before moisturizing (or use alone). For optimal results, use AM and PM. For daytime, follow with a broad-spectrum sunscreen rated SPF 30 or greater.

Ratings & Reviews

A great serum - PLEASE return to tube packaging

5

This is consistently my favorite Paula's serum - it for sure does not break me out or clog pores, which I am never as sure on with other serums. It does what a serum should do - boosts skin's appearance and seems to improve it in a general kind of way. What I really liked was that it came in a tube and for the price, I knew I was getting every last literal golden drop. Now with the packaging changes, it arrived in my last order in a clunky, overpacked pump style bottle. I know I will not get all of the product out now, and with the recent price increase it won't remain worth it. Please return to the tube packaging even if you stick with the updated, matte style of all the repackaged products. It's environmentally and economically wasteful.

Absolutely one of Paula's best products

5

I have been a customer for almost 20 years, and never gotten around to reviewing products. This serum is by far one of the best. It's packed with antioxidants, and it's not too heavy, but still moisturizing. I have combo/oily skin, and in summer, it is the only night time moisturizer I need. I use it around my eyes. I'm over 40, but people think I look in my 30s. I credit sunscreen and daily use of this serum since it first came out.

Good product

Love this because is truly is Ultra-Light and feels great on my skin, not greasy at all. Only a small amount is needed. Just started to use this so I cannot comment on any major changes but will continue to use and make a determination after I complete this tube.

Best Serum for any skin type

5

I never write comments on products but I had to for this serum. It literally transformed my dry skin overnight. I could actually feel how soft and hydrated my skin was in just a day. I've never had that occur with a product before. I use it twice a day and it has never broken me out. I have extremely sensitive and dry skin.

My favorite serum!

5

I have been using this serum since it came out from PC! I also have been using the C15 since August 2013. Anyway, it is so light and full of really great antioxidants in a silky base. I tried a sample of the Drunk Elephant B-Hydra and it just can't compare to either this or the gel moisturizers for oily skin. PC is reasonably priced if you really get out there and compare products on the market. You also don't need to use a lot of product. I will continue to buy this as it is a fantastic serum!

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this

This is one of my favorite PC products! It is light and feels so good on my skin. It offers just the right amount of moisture for my oily skin and leaves it soft and smooth. My skin drinks this in and feels soothed and calm. The texture of my skin issoft and even with this product. Definitely keeping this in my daily routine both day and night!

A regular purchase for me

5

This lightweight serum is a must-have for my oily-combination-sensitive skin. The other serums are too heavy and greasy for me, but this one is lovely and chalk-full of antioxidants and other beneficial ingredients. It's also a great option for those sensitive to retinol, since this product contains none, whereas most of the other PC serums do. I use it under my PC mineral sunscreen and love the thought that it may be giving me even more protection from the sun, due to the antioxidant content. This has been a regular purchase for me for several years now.

Saying this is expensive is very unfair

5

This serum is not bad, actually I don't mind it. It works in long run. Can't believe people say this is expensive. Are you guys joking? I have paid over $100 for 1 ounce/ 1/2 serum which I liked, so I don't think PC products are expensive. In fact, I think PC products are reasonably priced specially the 1% retinol and vitamin C serum. My skin care routine costs about $300 per 3 months. Not bad eh? I mean look at other companies, all fragrances, false advertisements, low quality ingredients, jar packages and they don't even wanna tell you how much of an ingredient is in a product. I contacted a few companies for the concentration of retinol, vitamin c, AHA and BHA in some of their products and guess what? they told me they can't disclose the concentration of ingredients. why not? what is so secret about it? So I told them it's their loss, I'm buying elsewhere. In the end, I spend my money on companies who are transparent and respect my money. Good Luck

Instant Results. For real.

I got this product as a sample. I was worried about using it because awhile ago this same product had a jelly-like texture that was hard to spread. The new formulation is great. It makes your skin less red INSTANTLY. It's lightweight and non-greasy and can easily be added to your moisturizer.

Feels great on the skin. Not greasy at all, and it seems like this product will last a while. I've had it for a few months and it seems I've hardly used any at all.
