I enjoyed reading this YEARS ago but now that Paula Begoun has her own line it seems more biased.

I give Paula a lot of credit. For two things 1) gathering research and 2) For not going with only natural products. The fact that many of us know about her on makeupalley, shows that their was a real lack of continuity in the makeup world about ingredients and claims before she came along.

I am allergic to a lot of skin care products and detergents. And growing up, I had difficulty …

I second the review that asks for civility and rationality. I prefer science over magic. I prefer less ranting. I don't understand the vitriol. Keep in mind, this company recommends scads of "bests," most of them made by companies other than her own. Oh, and to the person who said she contradicts herself, she does not sell eye creams, only moisturizers that can be used anywhere on …Read more

This is my first review on Makeupalley and I just suddenly felt compelled to write it out of sheer frustration at all the negative reviews! I know we are all entitled to our opinions, what would a review site be if we all agreed? I just have to point out that, in this instance, many of the negative reviews seem to despise Paula Begoun for the fact that she stands by her line!! Those in the know …Read more

I will go to the cosmetics counter every time without this piece of crap. This woman recommends the most harmful-to-skin products.

Forget Paula's Choice, her books and her website are only a clever kind of content marketing to advertise her brand and her products.

Regarding the reviews of other brand products, she is not reliable at all becuase her opinions are mostly very subjective, biased and her criteria are not scientific.
She recommends products, including her owns, containing nasty preservatives …

Sorry lady, when you put your dog in the fight so to speak you lost your credibility. If you really had much to start with. You are pimpin' your own line and that is just wrong. Would I go to Consumer Reports to get info on a potential purchase if they were now producing/selling a competing product? The answer is NO. So who do you think you are fooling? Not the people around here. Not for a …Read more

I didn't mind this book. I found a lot of things useful, but I also found Paula contradicted herself many times. She is against eye creams, but offers eye creams in her skin care line. She also advocates a simple routine excluding toner, yet tries to sell a "skincare line" that includes tons of what she would consider "useless steps".

Other than that, she …

I was given this book as a gift and I just can't read any further. She gives her own entire line of products a perfect rating. Geeee that's not biased at all... She lost all credibility in my eyes after I saw that. Does she think her readers are stupid?

This is basically the skin care/cosmetics bible IF you are a PB fan or cluless about the industry. I think it's courageous to expose the skincare/cosmetics industry for the fraud that it is and I appreciate her turning the lights on for the consumers. I learned alot from reading her book regarding the industry as a whole.
On the other hand, you have to take her comments with a grain …
