Effective for lightening sun spots

    Comments about Paula's Choice Skincare RESIST 25% Vitamin C Spot Treatment - 15 ml:

    I received a free sample of this product and was curious to see whether it would be effective in lightening "sun spots", or sun damage, on my face. As a fair-skinned redhead who always wears sunblock, these areas of uneven skin tone really frustrate me. After three days of applying a little on the worst spots over my night-time skincare products, I saw a slight but noticeable difference. I have nearly finished the sample and the difference is obvious, so I have ordered a full size product, and will hopefully be freckle-free by the end!

      Comments about Paula's Choice Skincare RESIST 25% Vitamin C Spot Treatment - 15 ml:

      I purchase a few different products from Paula's Choice and in an order earlier in the year I recieved a tester of this product. I loved it. It did exactly what it promised to do. Red spots would disappear. Skin was left glowing.

      Fast forward a few months to when my tester ran out so I ordered a tube. I put it on at night, just on my chin area.

      I woke during to night to find myself itching my face. I immediately went to wash my face but the damage was done. I woke in the morning to find a rash on my chin. It is now three days since I have applied it, luckily the itching has finally gone (although there were some restless nights because of it) however the multitude of small dots on my chin are still there.

      I don't know what happened, if the formula has been changed, but it is very disappointing.

      Service and delivery comments:

      The product arrived speedily and well packaged.

        Comments about RESIST 25% Vitamin C Spot Treatment - 15 ml:

        Paula's Choice products have worked fantastically for me, and this is certainly one of my favourites! I was initially skeptical, given that I get bad scars from acne (even the smallest of breakouts, due to my dark skin colouration) however I've used this product as a spot treatment for acne scars and it's proven incredibly effective in reducing my scarring in a short amount of time. I'm not sure whether it just works well with my skin type, but I've found this more effective than peels and would definitely buy again!

            Simply Does Not Work

              Comments about RESIST 25% Vitamin C Spot Treatment - 15 ml:

              I was excited to try this new product as I'm Asian and live in a very sunny climate. My skin was starting to show hyperpigmentation on my cheeks and also have some old acne scars. This product is a total disappointment. Not only is it very expensive but it simply does not work. I saw no improvement at all. I love most of the Paula's Choice products and have been a customer for years so it is a puzzle to me why they would offer something that was not effective and does not deliver and yet they rate it themselves highly. Strange to me.

                  I was very excited to see this cream, and have used Paula's products for many years and consistently found them amazing. This had absolutely no effect although I applied it daily for 4 weeks.

                  I would not recommend, it is expensive and have no effect.

                    I love PC products normally, and was excited to find something to help remove a brown mark on my face caused by an acid treatment for an acne spot. It has done nothing....costs so much, and did nothing. So sad. This ugly brown mark affects my confidence so to be so sure of a product only to be let down is a shame. Oh well....it was my fault it got there in the first place....will keep looking for something that will work!

                      Use this once- twice a day on light olive skin that is extremely acne prone with lots of scarring. Has replaced benzyl peroxide as was sick of it staining my clothes /sheets. This stuff is great..heals acne breakouts overnight and there is a significant difference in the appearance of my skin. Will keep buying please don't stop making it!! I use it on most days alternating with retinol and bhA PC products and a vitamin A product.

                          The texture of this spot treatment is perfect. I am able to control the amount of product I dispense with ease because of it's cream-like consistency. It quickly dries to a matte finish which allows me to gently layer another product with a heavier consistency on top without too much displacement of the spot treatment.

                          I've been using this once every three days on my old, red acne marks and everyday on my new, dark brown and red acne marks [until they fade]. So far, I've noticed very little to no improvement in my old scars. However, I see significant fading of my dark brown/red marks from recent breakouts. From this, I would say it is a suitable product for new acne marks.

                          A product with mixed results, but still delivers its claims.

                          I've bought Resist 25% Vitamin C spot treatment only cause Resist C15 Super Booster was out off stock. As I'm always 100% happy with all my Paula's products it came as a massive surprise that it had no effect what so ever on my brown spots. I kept using it religiously and kept waiting for a slightest effect to be seen and nothing. I know that self observation is not the most objective form of product evaluation, but Resist C15 would produce visible results after one week of use, while Resist 25% (stronger and more expensive option, failed me oh so badly).
