Additional Information

Why is it different?
RESIST Ultra-Light Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum has a water-light texture that delivers potent powerhouse antioxidants and skin-restoring ingredients to resist the signs of ageing, visibly firm the appearance of skin, and substantially increase skin-rejuvenating hydration.
What does it do?

Goes to work immediately to provide weightless hydration and an exclusive mix of antioxidants and grape-derived resveratrol. Together with skin-restoring and nourishing ingredients—hyaluronic acid and pore-improving niacinamide—this serum provides visible results, yet is so light, you won’t even know it’s there!

How to use
Smooth a few drops onto face, neck and eye area before moisturising (or use alone). For optimal results, use AM and PM. For daytime, follow with a broad-spectrum sunscreen rated SPF 15 or greater.

Ratings & Reviews

Light texture


I can't say if this product has made a difference to my skin However, I enjoy the light texture of this serum. I can use it morning or night, and it layers perfectly under other skincare. I have used it after strong acid toners and it never irritated my skin.



Broke me out :(


I used the product on and off earlier in the year, and was experiencing a lot of breakouts at the time, so I didn't know what product to put it down to. I started easing off using my BHA gel and this product, and after going back to using just the serum, I've got a string of pimples across my forehead. I would recommend trying a couple of samples of this before committing to the 30mL tube.

A bit tacky


Got this as a sample to try I usually use the skin balancing serum but wanted to give this one a go. Unfortunately made my skin slightly sting and go slightly pink, which I know means irritation so I'll be sticking to the skin balancing serum. Also feels a bit tacky and perhaps a bit shiny on the skin.




I'm hoping it works invisibly


This is not a dramatic product - like waking up the next morning with transformed skin - but if it is doing what it says on the box it should be a long term benefit. No irritation - pleasant smell and texture, absorbs instantly - no stickiness. Small amount needed - maybe size of 2 peas does my face. Difficulty is the tube - leaving it standing on it's cap can cause it to leak, and when taking off the lid it gushes. Must leave this balanced upside down, on the sealed end, so that you can control the release. Very annoying and gooey otherwise.

Broke me out


I really wanted to love this product because I love Paula's Choice but unfortunately this product caused me to break out especially over my chin which was a real bummer. It is very light weight and lovely to use but I have begun using it as an eye cream instead so I don't waste it. My skin is prone to breaking out so this might work for someone else.

I have combination oily t zone and dry cheeks and forehead. I have been searching for a serum that doesn't make me as greasy as an oil slick! This serum is FANTASTIC! If you have oily skin or just don't like the slimy feel of serums this product is amazing! Soaks into the skin and leaves a completely invisible finish! And my skin looks AMAZING!! Love it! Will be repurchasing!

A Light serum which helps boost hydration levels


I was recommended this product by a PC consultant. I have normal to dry skin. I use this in the mornings, after toning. I apply this serum, then the Hyluranic Acid Booster then the Moisture Boost Daily Restoring Complex. It's a light serum which helps increase my hydration but does not block my pores and still allows my skin to breathe. My skin is easily prone to developing milia but i don't need to worry about that when using this product. The packaging is great and it's easy to use and it's great value for money.

Light and moisturising, but not for me.


I used this product in combination with a number of other Paula's Choice products I have been using for some time and love, and found that while the texture was amazing and it left my skin lightly hydrated and shine free, something in the formulation does not agree with my skin. It seems to be making me break out and irritated , and as others have noted appears to lend an unusual yellow tone to the skin. Wish I could give this 5 stars, but the product is just not for me.


Melbourne, AU




I tried a sample of this serum with the matching moisturiser.. my skin hasn't felt this fantastic since I can't remember when! Really wonderful product!! I didn't think my acne was particularly inflamed and this calmed it down more. WILL be purchasing!

Gave me a Rash!


I gave this serum 3 stars because I loved the weightless waterlike texture. While it did not break me out I did develop an itchy rash on my cheeks after a few days. I suspect it was a reaction to the amount of niacinimide as I also got a rash from the Resist Weightless Toner. Luckily I used samples. I'll have to return the toner though.:-( I realize that not every product works for everyone and I would still recommend this to friend to try but would definitely get samples first.
