Ratings & Reviews

perfect as a moisturizer for hot weather


This is amazing. I used to have dry skin but I have recently moved to Brazil and normal moisturizers were too heavy for the hot humid weather here but just a normal hyaluronic serum was not enough. I use this as a moisturizer after C15 and Calm serum and under the new Defense sunscreen and my skin is hydrated but not greasy all day long. Very happy with how my skin looks and feels now.

I adore this product!


I use this in the morning after the Resist oily skin cleanser, toner, Resist 2% BHA and the Peptide Booster. It feels sooo good when I put it a nourishing feeling, the best I can explain it. I have aging but oily skin and this provides the perfect amount of moisture. It's not greasy, your skin just feels soft and bouncy. It also takes away any dry spots I may have from Retin-A use. I have been using Paula's Choice products for years and it shows!

Got rid of super flaky and dry skin patch


I was having issues with a dry and very flaky spot along the side of my nose. I started a better skin care routine using Paula's Choice products for the most part. It is likely the whole combination led to getting rid of the flaky dry spot within one week. This serum was part of my nighttime routine. After cleansing, I used RESIST Advanced Replenishing toner. I exfoliate in the morning, so I go straight to using the Omega+ Complex serum. Then I follow up with the Anti-Aging Clear Skin Hydrator. This coupled with a morning routine of cleansing, 2% BHA gel, Hyaluronic Acid Booster, and moisturizer with sunscreen seems to have done the trick in removing the dry patch. Definitely going to keep at this routine to keep the dry patches at bay. It's tricky, because my cheeks and chin and sometimes my forehead tend to get some acne (even at 47), so I have to keep the superhydrating moisturizer off those areas. I finish up those areas with the lightweight RESIST Youth-Extending Daily Hydrating Fluid SPF 50.




Holy grail


This really is an amazing product, truly my holy grail! I am usually the type to get dry patches and flakiness, especially during the winter time but ever since using this product I have not had this problem. I've been using this for a few months now and my skin continues to love it! Will keep repurchasing this product every time I run out. (Ps. a little goes a looong way)

I'm impressed


I've got eczema prone skin and am almost 30, so I was looking for a product that wouldn't irritate my skin while effectively moisturizing and nourishing. I must say I am very impressed with this serum; it does what it claims to do. My eczema patches are almost gone, and skin looks great even without make up. It is quite pricey though, and I will have to wait for another good sale before buying more.




Nourishing serum


Lightweight, very nourishing. Skin feels plump and soft. No breakouts even thought i hve oily acne prone skin. Can use alone during summer, no need for moisturizers. Love this!

Holy grail for hydration


I'm totally addicted to PC's omega serum. It makes my skin look smooth, feel calm and stay hydrated all day - without any greasy feel. And it is superb under makeup. In my morning routine, I put it on just after a vitamin C serum and the PC peptide booster. Then I follow up with the Resist SPF 15 moisturiser. My skin really looks and feels great with that combo.




Absolute must for me!


I don't know how I did without this serum. It's light but leaves my skin feeling plump and hydrated all day. I wish it came in a bigger size, but I'll just buy 2 at a time to make sure I always have one on hand.




Highly Recommend


This serum works really well as a light moisturiser , as the texture feels like a light moisturiser. I do use this after toner as a serum and I do layer on a stronger moisturiser. I felt if evens out my skin tone and really improves the skin barrier. i feel it also does even out skin tone and gives me a dewy glow. As all of PC products does not contain perfumes , this can smell a little like chemicals and perhaps a little boring, but in the end, it is the efficacy which counts.

Amazing ! Super food for skin!


I absolutely adore this serum! Makes your skin feel and look amazing and healthy ! So lightweight too, my only problem is the size , it's tiny and runs out way too quickly , I really wish this would come in a 50 ml bottle , as the price is quite expensive , please make the size bigger to match the price ☺️
