Several months ago I purchased a bunch of Paula’s Choice products, including the RESIST Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum. I wanted to alternate a serum with the Paula’s Choice retinol serum, so this was my choice.

Does it live up to its claims?
Yes! It’s a really nice serum. You can use it day or night or both. It has a teeny tiny needle type nose so that you can get out a small amount of product. This serum in particular says it can be used before or after moisturizer, as well as being safe for the eye area. I use it on my face, eyes, hands, neck and décolleté.
This is not a retinol product, but it does contain Vitamin C in a stable form, which makes it useful to prevent the signs of aging. I take the preventative method and always use moisturizers with spf during the day, and ‘skin’ food serums, so this suits my needs perfectly.
Would I purchase again?
Yes! This is yet another Paula’s Choice product that I love! If you’re in the market for a serum, check it out.
