Brightening

This is nice. It did help maintain minor problem areas. It's not overly strong, either. I'd recommend it to those with sensitive skin.

No difference

Application is smooth and works well under make-up, but didn't see ant difference after finishing a whole tube. I prefer other antioxidant serums.

Nice product!

Controlled a seasonal little breakout. Absorbs very well and doesn't affect the application of other products after it. Doesn't smell bad. I really like it and would recommend for oily and enlarged pores skins.

Good? Probl

Like it, absorbs very fast. I used it every day but still got blackheads going on just like before using it.

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways!

This is such an incredible product. I wish I had started using it ages ago. The antioxidants in this really do brighten up my face. It's like my skin is sun kissed. And the extra little big of BHA has really refined a lot of my stubborn pores. The texture of this is very enjoyable. It's thin and easy to spread. And, it feels lightweight. This was very easy to integrate into my routine. The results are fantastic. I HIGHLY recommend this.

Quality serum

I got this as a sample, and used the whole sample. It seems like a good salycilic acid serum but ultimately not amazing enough to justify the price.

No notable difference in my skin

I struggle with blackheads and congestion and am always searching for a product to add to my routine that combats that. I have no complaints about the serum itself, I just didn't notice any visible improvement in my skin's texture or clarity while using it.

Refreshing Serum

I look for serums to be hydrating without feeling heavy. This sinks right into the skin but my skin doesn't feel dry at all. Will definitely repurchase.

Excellent Salicylic Acid Product that Does Not Irritate

Once in a blue moon, I'll get a pimple now. I'm 50. I bought this serum, and thought, "When will I ever need to use this? Should this be a once a week treatment?" Well, after getting a little blemish, I started using it for a couple of days. Not only did it clear up the blemish, it healed it, evened out my skin tone and never once irritated my skin. This is now officially in my rotation every couple of days (I primarily use PC's Super Antioxidant Serum) and I adore this stuff. For a salicylic acid product, this does not irritate at all. For reference, I have rosacea and combination skin. I will repurchase once I run out. I never want to be without this.

No difference noticed

I did the quiz on the Paula's Choice website to see which products were recommend for me, and this product showed up. I tried it, and honestly didn't notice any difference. I like the company, which is why I gave it three stars. It didn't make my skin worse, but it also didn't make it better. I just finished the bottle and won't replace because I could live with or without it, but why spend money on something that wasn't making a difference?
