To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Little bit of a backstory: I learned about PC in my mid-20's, and it was one of my first skincare products as a young man dealing with cystic acne. This was back when you would've thought that Paula herself was mailing out each individual package as that's how long it would take to get the product into your hands. I tried many products in the line. The only stuff that ever seemed to produce any perceived results was a toner. I figured "well, it's been a lot of years and they've probably reformulated a lot of stuff and now it probably works great. I was clearly wrong in my assumption. Many years later (about a decade and a half) I've found that PC is still only good at toners, that's it. Since those days I've tried pretty much anything and everything. Although my primary concern is anti-aging, I get a blemish now and then. This nonsense made it even worse. Add to that the obscene pricing that they charge for a half-step above "drugstore" quality of the products and you have a never again from me. If you're using clinical skincare like I am, don't even waste your time on this garbage. Mark my words, you'll be disappointed and puzzled like I was. A sign that a brand has a "cult following" is when many of the reviews closely mimic the product description. Never, ever, ever again. Paula's puppets can continue wasting their money on mediocre nonsense, I'll stick with brands that actually do what they claim.
I'm holding off on giving 5 stars until I see more results. But so far, I love this product. Any prior anti-aging serums have given me searing headaches. (And I'm not prone to headaches.) This product has no fragrance whatsoever, and I've been using it a full week with no side effects at all! My skin feels smoother, so I expect to see some reduction in lines soon, but I have not just yet. I will try to update when that happens! Love this so far!
This serum goes on face really smooth and is great under make-up BUT I am allergic to the ingredient niacinamide . When I purchased and looked at the ingredients I missed this ingredient. I decided to try anyway. When I used my face got red and itchy. I gave a three star because if you are not allergic to niacinamide I feel this product will work for you.
RESIST Ultra-Light Antioxidant Serum with Coenzyme Q10, Niacinamide & Hyaluronic Acid is a fantastic addition to anyones daily routine. We have purchased this product from Paula's Choice and we will continue to purchase them as long as the formula is still the same.
I really like the product. It works well at smoothing and brightening my skin and post-acne marks so far after about two weeks. I gave it 4 out of 5 stars because the packaging is very difficult to get product out of, even though it is a pump. It takes a lot of priming each time to get out the smallest amount of product. This is very annoying, especially if you don’t have a lot of time. It is also very small for the price.
I've used this serum as part of my daily routine for a little over a month (I also add vitamin c drops to it), and I'm very happy with the results so far. My skin tone is more even, and it looks and feels softer. I'm hoping if I keep up the routine that it'll help reduce the effects of aging over the next decade.
