Took a while to build up to daily use

    Retinol is not my skin's favourite ingredient so I had to build up to this over a period of a few years. I get little pimply bumps from it. I started with the Skin balancing super antioxidant concentrate Serum with Retinol once every 2 days, then added this every second day for about 6 months before going to daily use of Intensive wrinkle-repair. Haven't had any further reactions and am loving the emollient formula at bed time combined with Vit C booster. I actually look pretty fresh in the morning now and wouldn't be without the combination.

      I love this serum for daily use mixed in with my moisturiser, or by itself around my eyes as a moisturising top up. I use a lot of products so can't say whether or not it "does" anything other than feeling great on the skin - mosturising, smoothing, calming. For those benefits I'm happy to keep re-purchasing. However, please please please fix the packaging for the trial size. The regular sized one is fine, but the trial size packaging has a flimsy pump and the several I've used have all broken after only getting one or two pumps of product out of the container. Such a pointless waste!

        Love love love it. I don't have many fine lines but the few that I have are much less visible. It helps keep my period breakouts at bay - I still have some but much less than before using my favourite PC products.

          Comments about Resist Retinol Serum - 30 ml:

          I really really wanted to love this serum, as my first foray into the world of retinol. Unfortunately I am still not sure I like it. The greasy feel of it (which others have mentioned) i don't love, and I have actually wondered if it makes me break out (seems to happen within a day or so of using this, which is unusual for me).

          The packaging/dispensing method is really flawed, the lid/cap popped away from the main body of the bottle very early on (I treat my products carefully and it's never left my bathroom counter), so it would be great to see this redesigned. Also, I can't actually see much of a difference in my skin when I have used this.

          I will still persist and do my homework into other PC retinol products, as I can certainly see the huge benefits of including them in your skincare routine. Unfortunately however this particular item hasn't worked for me.

          Service and delivery comments:

          Delivery was prompt and customer service (as always) was excellent :-)

            Comments about Resist Retinol Serum - 30 ml:

            I have been using it for about a month and it has done no difference to my lines/wrinkles. The only thing it caused in my skin it was terrible breakout in my forehead and chin. I don't understad how it could work with other people. I have tried several products from PC line, and so far everything has caused me breakouts. I used all the products for several days hoping that over time the breakout would disappear but that never happened, it just got worse.So disappointing. I really wanted to love PC products, but I am just happy with Skin Balancing Cleanser and toner. Now I have my bathroom full of PC products that I couldn't finish :( ... Now I think I should look for skin care products elsewhere.

              I have used Paula's choice for thirteen years. I thought the 2% bha liquid would always be my favourite but this takes the cake! Also feels much nicer and luxurious than the prescription retinol cream from the dermatologist. At night I use it on its own and wake up with soft, plump skin and I think, smaller looking pores. Two

                Comments about Resist Retinol Serum - 30 ml:

                I've been buying this product for a couple of years and love its texture and how it has improved my chronically dry, sensitive skin (avoiding the eyelids; I found it can irritate them). Love wearing it underneath moisturizer. My only quibble is the packaging can be unreliable. I've never been rough with the dispenser or pump it excessively but three have broken and one time the head completely fell apart so the spring top was exposed. In each case, the product was no longer airtight and not very portable. To Paula's Choice's credit, they've replaced or refunded the product each time but they still haven't changed the packaging despite one response saying the packaging was 'an ongoing issue'. It is also a bit annoying you can't see how much product is left. Aside from that, other times I've bought the serum the dispenser hasn't broken and it seems to be the luck of the draw if the packaging will last OK or not.

                    This is my first retinol product, and I've repurchased it. I'm only 29 and don't have wrinkles, but I'd noticed that after weight loss and getting to the end of my 20s I was losing a little plumpness and looking a bit dull.

                    This did exactly what I wanted it to: firms and brightens, just like it says it will. I use it only at night, usually after the PC 1% AHA lotion and before a drugstore moisturiser. I started getting compliments about 1/3 of the way into my first bottle. Now that I don't have acne either I have better skin now than I did at 20.

                    Only complaint I had initially was that part of the pump on the first bottle kept breaking, but this was either corrected by the PC team or I just got a bad bottle, as the second bottle hasn't had any problems.

                      This product has significantly reduced fine lines around my eyes and deeper wrinkles on my forehead. I have had many compliments on my skin since using it. I use at night only as I also use the Resist Moisturiser with retinol in it.

                      My tip - it is essential that you continuously use this product. As soon as I stop using it my lines come straight back again!
