This is indeed a unique product. It's a silicone-based serum packed with powerful antioxidants in a non-irritating formula. Since antioxidants are more of a preventive measure than a treatment, I wasn't expecting to see any visible results. However, I did notice that my skin wasn't as clear and even toned when I happened to skip it. My only gripe is that the formula is indeed hard to spread on the face due to it's silicone base. I have to mix it on my hand with a cream so that it spreads nicely without tugging my skin.

I have only been using this for a few weeks, so it is a bit premature, but overall my reaction is very positive. Previously I have used antioxidant serums such as Peter Thomas Roth and Skinceuticals C+E. Paula's provides the same high-potency antioxidants at a much better price. My only gripe with this product is that it is too viscous and doesn't spread easily. It is quite difficult to apply this to the entire face.
Update: after about two weeks I am lowering my rating to 3 stars. Have noticed a few blemishes around the upper eye/eyebrow area where I never have problems, and am convinced this is the culprit. :(

This intially makes you feel really oily.. but th en it absorbs after a couple of minutes to make your skin really really smooth, and is an awesome makeup base! no fragrance and no added bits and pieces that doesn't agree with your skin.

I used this for about 3 weeks before I reviewed it to see what I thought. It is an awesome foundation primer. Keeps my skin matte and makes it look smooth. It also seems to be keeping the daily grime out of my pores.
Update: This broke me out after I used it for a couple months. I still think it is a great product for those that can use it. Does make skin look smoother and matte.

I really like this product, it has worked exactly as it should and is leaving me with that translucent glow that I used to get with La Mer serum. I highly recommend this.UPDATE: Just started using this under SSE and it is better than Smashbox and half the price...and it might be beneficial. Whoohoo!!!!

A really wonderful serum... use this over your regular skincare int he AM, right before sunblock, to create a kind of barrier for your skin against the free radicals you are exposed to during the day. A little goes a long way, and it sinks in well, lending a wonderful silky feel to the skin! My only gripe is the applicator is a pain... I spent many a precious monring moment trying to squeeze a simple drop out of the bottle! (remember, a little goes a long way, but this is ridiculous!) So, when ordering, either ask for the alternate tip, or stick a pin into the original applicator to ease with dispensing!

Maybe I am demanding too much for this product. But this does nothing to my skin. Yes, my skin does feel smooth, but I think this is just camouflage. That's it, and it doesn't have other benefits. After using 3 weeks it broke me out with 4 huge deep zits. I'm really disapppointed. Like other PC products, this is garbage and always makes zits on the face. Absolutely I will not buy this again.

I am on the fence for this. I think I would enjoy using this more if it wasn't in a silicone base. I keep having the disconcerting feeling that I am putting Farouk's Biosilk on my face. I haven't used it long enough to determine if it's improved my skin tone. I also incorporated the CP serum into my regime at the exact same time as the PC Serum, so, when I run out, I will see if my face continues to "glow" without it. If not, I'll know for sure that it is indeed the PC and repurchase it.

A great inexpensive antioxident packed silky serum, full of alpha-lipoic acid, Vit. C, ect. Your skin feels velvety after application. The dispenser of the bottle is terrible though, you squeeze and squeeze and maybe get a drop out. I heard they are changing the packaging though.

I really love this product. My skin is combination, prone to breakouts. It feels kind of slick when you first put it on, but it sinks right in, makes pores look smaller, calms red areas and amazingly enough keeps my face matte all day. I've been using it about a week and a half morning and night and have no breakouts from it. It takes a tiny, tiny amount for the whole face. I'll definitely purchase again. UPDATE: I'm really disappointed Paula has changed the formulation of this, the ingredients are not nearly as good as they were before. I'm lowering my rating of this.
