My skin: dry sensitive flaky
I received this as a free full size gift during the event.

Pros:

- bha is part of ingredient
- good to use with other rich products or serums

Cons:
- dry not for moisturiZing
- price
- prefer use it around cheeks not around eyes

The product seems like it is made for combination-oily skin …

I bought this without reading reviews here. I am surprised, though, about how many reviews criticize the company and do not share their views about the product specifically. I am looking forward to find help in reviews for understanding if this product is good for me and is worth my money.

I like the serum and especially its light texture. This was my first PC product and I am happy …

This product hasn't gotten a lot of love here, but I really enjoy it. I am not usually super susceptible to packaging, but I admit that's what first attracted me to PC's Defense line. The bold Lady Danger-esque color looked almost literally delicious to me. What made me pull the trigger, though, was the azelaic acid, an ingredient I'd long been curious about. Plus, I was on …Read more

An underwhelming serum that can't do what it promises.

Another gimmicky product from Paula's Choice. I just don't get it, what happened to Paula Begoun? Why is she creating subpar products like this?

The product has a sticky feel that goes away depending on the humidity of your environment but it does not deliver what it promises. Why is that? Because this …

I am so disappointment that people gave high ratings for a product that they will not repurchase or thought that it didn't work for them or that it was gimmicky.

We should be honest in giving ratings. It seems that these reviewers gave up their power to be slaves to companies for which they will not benefit from unless they're paid.

I will echo many of the negative …

NOTE: Be wary of the one star reviews on this product. I'm suspicious of them because a lot of the people giving one star reviews are brand new to Makeupalley and only have one or two reviews up with one star (one of which is for this product) Just saying. It seems odd. Did they create a Makeupalley account to bash this product? Did they even buy it. It's not even available in some of …Read more

A poorly developed product that doesn't really do anything.

This serum has a light texture but can feel slightly tacky after application. Aside from the negligible moisture, I haven't noticed any changes on my skin after using it for a while.

Paula's Choice has strayed from its core philosophy of providing quality products and they're now focusing on …

I bought this despite my better judgement. I've been a Paula fan now for years and I don't think any amount of negative reviews on this website will bring her company down. I mean, come on people, her brand was recently bought out by a huge conglomerate and the only place her company is going is up. There have been zero scandals with her company.

Anyway, on to the review. I …

This serum is a refreshing change from the silicone based Paula's Choice antioxidant serums. I'm not against silicone per se, but this feels so much lighter and absorbs completely.

It's similar in texture to the PC Calm Repairing Serum, but has a longer ingredient list of antioxidant ingredients and absorbs a bit better with more slip to the product itself. I do find …

I have been a paula's choice fan for a while but the company has changed in the last few years. Lots of redoing the lines, repeat products, poor customer service, & filtering their reviews on their website. I have written reviews that never get posted because they were not 5 star reviews. I get that they want to now target a younger crowd with all the "fancy" packaging …Read more
