The most biased cosmetic review site on the internet.

All of Paula's Choice products are 5-stars. Many of the competitors products are not.

The credibility has gone down the drain since Paula' Begeoun started selling her own products. Beautypedia would say things like "don't be fooled by the fancy name" of the competitor's product and then they …

Beautypedia is no longer a trustworthy source for cosmetic reviews ever since Paula started selling her own products.

If you go through the reviews, you'll see a lot of people getting frustrated and angry at the biased reviews of competing products. I have never seen so many reviewers protesting their distate for a site like Beautypedia.

Even if the competing company …

Beautypedia is far from perfect but it's overall an excellent resource. There are so many options in skincare. A newbie might assume the pricier the better: Brands like Murad, Perricone MD, Dr Dennis Gross with their flashy marketing and trusted names. Or the most elegant formulations from Estee Lauder or La Mer. Or even La Prairie with its diamond and caviar creams. This is the only …Read more

I am disappointed with Paula's Choice and Beautypedia. Remember that both are under the umbrella of the Paula's Choice company and Beautypedia can definitely be used a marketing tool for however they want to manipulate the reviews to their advantage.

Beautypedia used to be reliable but that was a long time ago. With the company losing out to better products, I just …

I enjoyed Beautypedia for years while it was run by Paula. Didn’t always agree, but the site was tremendous with brands, info and reviews. When she stepped down, beautypedia in my opinion basically went away. Reviews are done maybe once a month- hardly ever, the app I have from them is not the most user friendly and none of the brands I would like to see are ever done. I’ve emailed them many …Read more

I'm a really big fan of Paula &shave readevery single book she's written! Her beautypedia website is a continuation of her book " don't go to the cosmetics counter without me " ! & I always look up reviews from her site ! I think she's a most valuable source of skincare information! She really breaks down the ingredients & tells you the truth about …Read more

Beautypedia is a great resource for information. Having said that it is always best to look at multiple sources. There are many ingredients that experts can't agree on, or studies show different results. This means that you have to reasarch both sides & make your own decision. Personally I hate that & wish it was easier but what can you do. Even though I don't agree with every …Read more

I give this site 5 stars because The Beauty Brains (actual cosmetic chemists for the leading cosmetic company in the United States) agrees with a lot of the stuff that Paula Begoun says, sites a lot of the same studies, explains a lot of the same studies, etc. Cosdna.net is not accurate, is operated by Chinese based cosmetic companies and also allows for users to upload any information they want …Read more

Personally, Beautypedia has been a life saver for my ultra sensitive skin. And I have to say, while I don’t like every PC product I’ve tried (I don’t expect to like every product in any skincare line) every Paula’s Choice moisturizer I’ve purchased has given me stellar results and never causes irritation or breakouts. Like, never, and that’s a miracle for me.

There has been some misunderstanding and serious lack of logic from people writing negative reviews. I am going to respond to these absurdic comments and head on to describing my personal experience:
1. Her reviews became biased since she runs her own skincare now:
Well, it does have some logic in it, however you need to understand that the principles she used for reviewing the product …
