Combat signs of ageing with Paula's Choice Resist 1% Retinol Booster, a powerful concentrate that works to improve the appearance of ageing or sun damaged skin.
Designed to enhance the anti-ageing properties of your favourite serum or moisturiser, the treatment can be added into your current daily routine to deliver wrinkle-reducing, skin-firming benefits. Enriched with 1% stabilised retinol, the antioxidant-rich booster helps stimulate collagen production, repair damaged skin and improve the look of wrinkles, brown spots, loss of firmness and uneven tone.
Lightweight in texture, the treatment's dose of willow herb and anti-inflammatories leave skin feeling calm and soothed with improved tone and texture. - K.N.

This PC booster is a great introduction to stronger OTC retinol products, primarily because you can adjust how much you add to your serums / moisturisers in a single application. Before this, I had been using the Resist Intensive Wrinkle Repair serum, which (according to the Paula's Choice team) contains around 0.1% retinol - so this is definitely a step up!
Like the previous reviewer mentioned, it is best to 'feather' the pump until a single, solitary drop is dispensed - pressing down all the way actually dispenses way more than is necessary, and will tip the balance to irritation for most first-time users. 1-3 drops depending on your preference.
I have tried mixing this with a range of Paula's serums and moisturisers with no problems. As per usual with a well-formulated retinol product, you can expect the following - clearer skin, improved skin tone and texture, less noticeable wrinkles and fading of PIH. Because I was only concerned with pore size and the general improvement of my skin's health, I can attest that it has definitely helped me with that concern. I also feel that my skin holds onto moisture much better than before using this booster.
For the record, if anyone is concerned about irritation from using this product - I highly recommend loading up on products containing ceramides as one of the primary ingredients. Paula includes these in a number of her anti-aging products, and it will help counter any dryness / irritation you may have.

I'm alternating this product with the Paula's Choice 1% Retinol Treatment and my skin is an absolute dream now. It glows and is so smooth - I feel like a 19 year old again!
The only thing I'm not certain about it what is classified as a "drop". If I press the pump on this bottle fully, a large "drop" comes out. If I used 2-3 of those "drops" as specified, the product wouldn't last long at all and considering the price for 15ml, that doesn't seem very cost effective.
What I tend to do is press the pump very lightly which means I get a tiny "drop" and I just add this to my serum on a morning. My results are great so I think I'll keep doing this.
