Reduced pigmentation and brighter face

I have tried using this product for two weeks and I can already see difference on my face. The spots’s colour has become lighter and my face feels smoother and looks brighter. Will continue using it and perhaps buy again once the product is finished.

Brightens and glows

I had low expectations when I tried this product because my skin is really problematic (large pores, acne/blemish prone, oily) but this improved my skin texture and blemishes without being drying on my skin. LOVE IT!

Game Changer

I have dots on nose which I thought to be blackheads. First product of Paula's Choice that I tried was the 2% BHA lotion (black bottle). Almost a month of use, my skin become smoother, but the dots still there. Maybe it is not blackhead afterall but sebaceous filaments. This brought me to this serum and astonishingly it really works! I used it twice a day without any irritation. The sebaceous filament now gone for good. This product is truly a game changer for me.

Bumpy skin gone!

I have always struggled with ingrown hairs, milia and random whiteheads. 2% bha and retinol have helped dramatically, but after receiving this as a sample, I'm convinced this is the secret sauce to my skin care. Since I've started using it my milia and ingrown hairs have started to fade away. And those little under-skin bumps are gone too. This is the product I never knew I needed and I think it's the keystone to the rest of my routine.

Excellent serum!

Cleared up some stubborn blocked pores within a week, skin is noticeably clearer within 2 weeks. Added to daily regimen. Very impressive results.
