I keep trying other mascaras from time to time, but I always go back to this one. It is a very good mascara that doesn’t smudge and doesn’t clump. I like the brush; one side is lined with long bristles, and you apply this first. It does lengthen your lashes and coats them lightly. Than you turn your brush on the other side, which is lined with shorter, denser bristles, and apply. This will thicken your lashes and give them volume. You do not need to dip the brush inbetween this! One dip of the brush is enough per eye, just turn the brush around! This mascara also is good for sensitive skin and eyes. Some make my eyes water and itch, and this one does not! It will not give you overly dramatic, false eye-lash look, but that’s not what I’m after. Still, it is observably noticeable and effective in what it does. Very good in my opinion. As stated already, I always keep going back to it. Definitely one of my favorites!
Treatments -Paula's Choice - Skin Recovery Super Antioxidant Concentrate

I love this product. When I first applied it, I was skeptical; it had the consistency of oil, and felt weird. But within minutes, my face soaked up this “oil” and became instantly softer and smoother. It feels hydrating, but amazingly, not greasy at all. No shininess after it absorbs!!! I love all the antioxidants in it. I use Paula’s Choice Hydrating Treatment moisturizer, and I think these two products were responsible for giving me the even skin tone, and minimizing my facial redness and occasional flakes. My face almost never gets bright red anymore (unless I have a few glasses of alcohol). You only need a little bit of this product, so a tiny tube will last for a very long time. I also love that it is safe to use around the eyes, and I liberally apply this and the hydrating treatment in that area of my face. It smoothes skin instantly, and minimizes the appearance of fine lines as well! How great is that! Another wonderful product from Paula, and yet another keeper! Will repurchase again!

I absolutely love this product. It is irritant and fragrance free, and my sensitive facial skin soaked it up with wonderful results. I find it moisturizing, but not greasy nor heavy. It absorbs fairly quickly. My face tends to get flushed or bright red, and this hydrating cream helped with that. Not only did it help easy my facial redness, it also even out my skin tone. I found that a little goes a long way, so a tube will last a while. Price is great too!! Definitely a keeper! Will repurchase again!
