Ratings & Reviews

A great addition to my PC routine


I don't have oily skin (except on hot days in the summer) and I use a number of products from the CALM and RESIST lines that help with wrinkles and other aging skin issues. I am in my early 60s. I've had skin cancer, so I needed a lightweight antioxidant serum that wouldn't be "too much" on top of the other PC products I am using. (If it had green tea in it, it would be totally perfect -- but it's great as is.) Because it is so lightweight, it spreads easily over my skin and plays well with other products. I like that it contains niacinamide as well as hyaluronic acid. Sometimes, when I want to mix a PC Booster product -- like Vitamin C -- I use this because it mixes so easily. Results have been great, and it doesn't burn my sensitive skin. Not just for younger women with oily skin.




Lightweight serum


This is a very lightweight serum. It absorbs immediately and leaves my skin feeling soft and plump. I wear it under moisturizer in the morning and my makeup applies beautifully!




Come on guys!!! the new container is awesome!!!


I made an order like two days ago, and I already received it. I've been using and loving with PC for 8 years. I can't even believe it.. I'm 25 now. Since I wasn't in the United States. This serum was launch out around 4 years ago. It is great as a moisturizer for oily acne prone skin which is exactly I have. The serum is super lightweight and feeling great also not clogging my pores. I don't know what anti-oxidants ingredients exactly have done on my skin, but I just feel great and my skin is very smooth by using this. I have to say the new container is another win and it is such a smart idea!! It used to be the tube which was smaller size and travel-friendly, But the biggest problem is the air can always get into the tube, Which means everytime we use it, the air comes in and oxidizing the content inside. Whoever has used this serum will notice the serum can change the color from light yellow to the dark yellow after two months or three months later. It means the content of this serum got oxidized. The new container is a pump airless dispenser which minimizes the oxidization, Who doesn't want their serum as fresh as it can? Also, it is beautiful!!!I have to say people who design these new packages for PC are brilliant. Also, The new container of 2%BHA LIQUID is black matte finished surface which is super good-looking, as well as the new makeup remover. You know what? I always recommend PC's products to my friends, they really like the products but most of their complaint is PC's package. Now I think they are not going to have any compliant anymore.

A great serum - PLEASE return to tube packaging


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


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


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!


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!






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


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.
