RESIST Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum – the name says it all! Antioxidants are well-known anti-aging superheroes that repair damaged cells and rebuild skin’s protective barrier so it functions optimally. Not only does this serum contain high levels of stabilized vitamin C and vitamin E, but also boasts of other potent antioxidants like Ubiquinone (coenzyme Q10), Superoxide Dismutase, Ferulic acid and many more!
I bought this serum for using every morning before my sunscreen since antioxidants also boost the power of sunscreen by providing additive protection against UV damage. As much as I love the stellar ingredient list packed with so many skin-protecting antioxidants, I am not very fond of the texture of this product for daytime use.
The formula is quite emollient with a creamy texture which is all good for my dry skin, but I don’t like that it tends to leave a slightly shiny finish and doesn’t absorb as fast as expected from most serums. So, unless I apply the serum very conservatively, I find its consistency to be a bit heavy for applying under my moisturizer with sunscreen especially during summertime. Good thing is I haven’t experienced any breakouts even when using this serum under moisturizer.
Now I have switched to using this antioxidant serum at night and it’s hydrating enough for my skin these days to skip any additional moisturizer. The serum is also said to work beautifully under makeup but I haven’t tried using it as a primer under my foundation. Just like all paula’s choice products (except exfoliants), the serum is suitable for use around the eyes too.
Final verdict – Paula’s choice RESIST Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum is undoubtedly a fantastic and gentle anti-aging formula for night time especially for those with normal to dry or combination skin types. It’s priced reasonably too at $25.95 for 1oz of product. I bought this a while ago and have almost finished the tube now but not sure if I will repurchase. It would have been a keeper if I could use it in my morning routine as an added layer of protection under sunscreen but the texture isn’t very suitable for that.
