Latest Paula's Choice Reviews

CALM Redness Relief Moisturizer N/D

This is a truly great moisturizer. It's rich and creamy but not greasy. I have normal skin, but it's very sensitive. This moisturizer calms my skin making it look radiant and hydrated. It doesn't break me out, and it makes my skin look less red and bumpy. I use it at night after cleansing. The antioxidants in this are anti-aging. After using this, I feel like my skin looks plumper and younger. Great product. I'll continue to buy.

I really like a lot of Paula's Choice products. Some of them have too many actives in them for my skin. I can't use the chemical exfoliants or retinol. Otherwise, I think the products are terrific. I like that she doesn't use jar packaging, and that all the packaging is opaque to protect the ingredients from light. There are a lot of antioxidants and skin soothing ingredients. They're free from skin irritating fragrance, which I appreciate, because I have very sensitive skin. Although the products aren't exactly cheap, they're not overpriced either. Basically, they are mid priced. You get a decent amount of product too. Most department store moisturizers are only 1 ounce. Paula's Choice are 2 ounces. The cleansers are huge. I love beautypedia.com, which reviews all types of brands and recommends other products even if they're cheaper. There are products for all the different skin types and for different skin problems like fine lines and acne. Although Paula can be a little preachy at times, I don't mind too much. Basically, she offers high quality products that perform like they promise. I'll continue to buy.

RESIST Intensive Wrinkle-Repair Retinol Serum

Brilliant product! I have dry, sensitive skin, which is very sensitive to retinol products. I usually find them way too drying, and they make my skin very sensitive to the sun. I live in California; avoiding the sun isn't an option. Those side effects don't happen when I use this serum. The product has a gel-like quite oily consistency, which is very nice for dry skin. I use two pumps per time twice a week, and I see the difference it makes. It diminishes wrinkles and sunspots. My skin tone is more even and my complexion looks more radiant. A must-have for me!
