Ratings & Reviews

Happy to have found this product!


I am super satisfied with this serum, I loved the RESIST Intensive Wrinkle-Repair Retinol Serum in the winter, but it is too greasy for me once the heat of summer arrives. This product is perfect as my pores are finally getting unclogged with the retinol, yet it is gentle enough to not cause any problems. It applies really well - a tiny amount goes a long way, so this tube will last me the whole season. Very happy to be able to continue to use Retinol as the 1% Clinical version is too strong for me.

Wanted to love it


This is the only PC product I've ever used that I didn't like, and I've tried many different moisturizers and serums over the years. The formula is quite strange, like a clump, greasy gel, even with plenty of shaking. It's also the only product form PC that has ever made me break out, even with one application I'll have noticeable pimples the next day. Pretty disappointed, as I was excited to find a antioxidant serum with retinol that would be good for oily/combo skin!

Irritated my face and very little does!


Not sure i would buy this again as my skin became itchy and red. I have been putting this on my hands and then using hand cream. My hands look amazing.

Second time trying it and it broke me out badly


Second time trying it and it broke me out in acne cysts after my acne prone skin had been clear for some time. Frustrated because I was trying to enhance my skin with this product; my skin that had been clear for some time but... Now I have huge cystic pimples again. :(

Great Product!


This product has an unusual texture but it's one that I like. It has a lot of slip, which is good for skin. It doesn't feel heavy but I can tell that its there. Not sticky but soft and light It feels wonderful on my skin. I have used this as my only moisturizer at night when my skin was very oily. It soothes and comforts my skin and leaves it soft and smooth and ready for the day.

Great product, bad packaging!


This is a wonderful antioxidant, but I have stopped buying it because I can't stand the cap! Paula, the small cap makes this thing unstable if you try to stand it up, which many of us do. It is constantly tipping over, causing minor chaos on my toiletries shelf. If these serums have to be in tubes, could you please give them large caps so they can stand up properly? Better yet, could they all come in a pump container, like the Calm serum? That would also help with dispensing the right amount. This antioxidant is so thin that I often got too much out of the tube. Other than that, this is a wonderful, lightweight serum that leaves skin silky soft.




Excellent eye primer. Must have item.


I have used this product for 3 years daily around my eyes. The silicone base conceals and softens wrinkles around the eyes unlike any product I've ever used. I apply before my concealer. I'm 56 and I do have crows feet. My 30 year old daughter is jealous that I don't have wrinkles around my eyes.




I love this product!


I love this product I am using it every night before going to bed and I find it amazing! My skin looks relaxed and fresh in the morning. In love with PC products!



My skin loves this!


I can only use it at night though. It takes a very long time to fully soak into my skin, which makes it almost impossible to use under makeup without pilling. It could be just that I have oily skin. I put on a light layer before going to bed and let it work its magic overnight. In the morning my skin feels nice and dewy and the redness around my nose and chin has calmed. It does have a noticeable scent to it, so keep that in mind if you are sensitive to smells. I find it pleasant though and it doesn't last very long.

You have to shake it, people!


Not a bad product because it's made with good ingredients and doesn't tick off my finicky skin. It's just not worth repurchasing for myself. It's so, so strange. Of all the PC products I've tried, this is the most mediocre, oddly formulated thing I've tried. Imagine the original Smashbox Photo Finish primer, the really thick, clear silicone one. This feels like that, only you have to shake this very well every time you go to use it or else it squooshes out liquid. Once it's shook and you squeeze some out, it's exactly like that primer, only a goldish color, with no real scent. When you go to spread it, it dries instantly, so quickly that it's really difficult to feel if you've evenly distributed it around your face. I guess if you like that extremely matt, silicone feeling on your skin, the texture wouldn't bother you. But I like serums that feel more like liquidy gel, light ones that I can feel myself spreading and massaging across my skin. I like a moment of glowy, dewy-ness after application before it absorbs. I like being able to FEEL what I'm putting on my skin. With this serum, I feel like I'm applying nothing. I also didn't see any really outstanding results in my skin other than some pleasant softness the morning after use. There's another PC serum that does so much more for me, a real performer. But this one is, in a word, "Meh". Hate the texture, didn't get results I wanted. Not buying again. Just not for me. I highly advise getting a sample. Don't get the sample packet. You really can't properly shake those and you don't get a good idea of the product with those at all. Get the travel size tube. It's an actual plastic tube that you can really shake. It's the best way to experience the texture in all it's bizarre glory.
