Treatments (Face) -Paula's Choice -CALM REDNESS RELIEF Repairing Serum

on 1/13/2018 9:38:00 PM


The Paula's Choice Calm Redness Relief Repairing Serum has become a staple in my daily routine. I recently purchased an Illuminage Wrinkle Laser Device and using this five days a week leaves my skin stinging, burning, flaking, and bright red (oh, the things we do for beauty). I'd tried my normal serum as well as several other toners and moisturizers to help try and alleviate these side effects but none really soothed my skin.

I'm very glad to have found this serum. I apply it immediately after I finish my laser treatment and it helps instantly take down the redness and soothe the stinging and it also absorbs quickly so I can get to my other moisturizers and treatments. This has no scent and no denatured alcohol so it is perfect for me to use with my super dry and sensitive skin. If you have red or irritated skin I highly recommend giving this serum a try to see if it can help alleviate your skin issues, too. My more detailed review video can be seen here:

Cleansers -Paula's Choice -CLEAR Pore Normalizing Cleanser

on 1/12/2018 8:38:00 PM


I agree with the reviewer just below me that it's A LITTLE WEIRD that Paula moved from Triclosan (now banned) in this product to .5% salicylic acid. Didn't she always say salicylic acid was pointless in a cleanser, because it doesn't stay on long enough? If there was a word of explanation, I did not catch it. But I just can't give this a negative review. It's a pretty good cleanser for my sensitive, breakout-prone skin. (I was always scared of Triclosan anyhow.) It's a clear, gentle, not-very-foaming gel that manages to be soothing and refreshing at the same time. I don't find it drying, and I prefer the texture to CeraVe's Renewing SA Cleanser. This seems gentler and more suitable for everyday use. (Note: I'm pretty old to be using acne cleansers!)

Cleansers -Paula's Choice -Perfect Cleansing Oil

I have just used this for the first time tonight and really liked it - it took all my makeup off easily. I opened my eyes while using it (with it all over my eyes) and it didn’t bother me one bit - no burning sensations or anything, I was surprised at all the reviews that said it burned. Rinsed off nicely and my skin felt clean and smooth, barely needed to apply any moisturizer. I’m hoping this doesn’t cause any breakouts, will update if it does.

Cleansers -Paula's Choice -RESIST Perfectly Balanced Foaming Cleanser

on 1/9/2018 12:38:00 AM


This cleanser is not as drying as other cleansers. However, it caused me to break out (especially in weird patterns/places I never break out), it does not remove makeup well as it claims, and it makes my face oilier than normal- I think it leaves some sort of residue.
