RESIST C15 Super Booster
The RESIST C15 Super Booster is a new targeted skincare product from Paula’s Choice released within the past few months. I have been testing out this product for the past couple of months and today I’m ready to share my thoughts with you!
The RESIST C15 is dispensed with a dropper. The glass packaging and opening have been specifically designed to minimize light and air exposure.
RESIST C15 Super Booster is a concentrated, light-as-water liquid treatment product designed to supercharge your Paula’s Choice serum, or it may be used alone. A blend of 15% stabilized vitamin C (l-ascorbic acid) at a pH of 3.0, antioxidant vitamin E, ferulic acid, and peptides repairs visible signs of aging and stimulates collagen production for smoother, brighter, and firmer skin.
Vitamin C also helps protect skin from environmental damage as it evens your skin tone. You’ll see dramatically younger, healthier, and more radiant skin in weeks!
The RESIST C15 Super Booster has been designed for all skin types and is:
- Effective for: Anti-Aging, Brown Spots, Wrinkles
- Designed to supercharge any Paula’s Choice serum or moisturizer
- Quickly brightens skin and reduces brown spots
- 15% stabilized vitamin C plus potent anti-aging ingredients promote firmer skin

- Specially packaged to minimize light and air exposure

I continue to use my regular Paula’s Choice skincare products (cleanser, toner, BHA and AHA exfoliants, serum and SPF) while using this product, and within the past three months I have also added using a Tretinoin cream every other day, and I am loving the entire routine! (I will update my full skincare routine soon!) Currently my favorite combo: the RESIST C15 with RESIST Ultra-Light Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum.

Scent and Shelf-Life – The C15 Super Booster is nearly clear, with a very slight tint of “orange”. The scent reminds me kind of like a “vitamin” but I do not find it unpleasant. After application I can smell it for several minutes before it fades away.
C15 has a shelf-life of 3 months, after which it may begin to lose its effectiveness. I asked Paula’s Choice about this:
“The C15 is recommended to be completed by the end of 90 days. The reason for this is that even with the packaging upgrades (internal air restrictor and tinted glass), high percentage ascorbic acid serums are difficult to keep potent due to their notorious instability. Within 90 days, the C15 will remain its full potency, but after that time we can’t say with certainty that it would remain as potent. The sure sign of a vitamin C treatment like this losing strength is a color change—shifting to a dark brown/orange is the oxidization of the ascorbic acid. We know in extensive testing the C15 remains stable up until 90 days, but after than there is a gradual shift which can vary by external, environmental factors.”
With using 3-4 drops of this product once per day, I have used approximately 1/4 of the product over a two month period. I have since increased use to twice per day, which would use up the product more quickly, making it closer to using it within the recommended 3 month period for me. That being said, I will personally use the product past three month mark however, but I will immediately discontinue use if the product begins to change color (darken) or begins to develop an odor.
If you find you are only using the product once or twice per week, you might consider ordering the sample size also offered from Paula’s Choice.
