This is an HG for me. I used Biore UV Perfect Face Milk for years and loved the protection and mattifying effect, but it dried me out like crazy. For reference I have verrry clog-prone, dry, sensitive skin. This sunscreen isn't dehydrating at all, leaves a nice natural (not too matte) sheen, no white cast and no breakouts! I've been using it for about six months and I'll continue …Read more

I've only been using this serum for two weeks, so it's still early days but I will update this after a few months.

First off, the price is great. SN sells samples pretty cheaply, and it took me two weeks to finish two of them with twice-daily use. I use this in the morning under my sunscreen, and while it isn't super moisturizing on its own, it doesn't actively dry …

This is the best sunscreen I have ever used. Which is to say, I hate wearing sunscreen and every other I've tried has been terrible, so if this is as good as it gets then I'm happy to use it. It's effective, dries completely matte with no whitecast, and the light citrus scent doesn't irritate my skin or eyes (I use it on my eyelids with no issues). I have pretty dry skin and …Read more

I'm on my second bottle of this, so I feel qualified to say that this stuff saved my skin. Almost. I've been acne-prone since puberty so while I have accepted that I am going to have some zits/blackheads no matter what, I also know what my "baseline" skin looks like. My skin is almost always dry after washing, and becomes greasy a few hours later (but still flaky underneath …Read more

Broke me out instantly. Put it on in the morning, and by noon I counted about ten little tiny whiteheads across my nose and cheeks. That was last week. This week, and I am still trying to get rid of the little bastards! Didn't get burned that day, and it didn't leave a white cast (which I'm grateful for, though maybe a white cast might have helped to camouflage my new …Read more

This is the only Paula's Choice product I have used. I was excited to try out the brand and had been wanting to ditch the Stridex for a while and go for something without menthol. Unfortunately, I used this product on two separate occasions and had horrible reactions each time (dry, bumpy, red, itchy skin for a WEEK each time). The first time I had the reaction, I thought it might have been …Read more

goes on nicely, hydrates all my annoying (retin-a created) dry patches and doesn't get too oily, however, this stuff breaks me out every time I use it! I keep giving it chances because I want it to work for me but yup, by the second day of using it I've got little whiteheads, and by the end of the week my pores look noticeably more clogged. also, I think the fragrance is a little much …Read more

Man, I was really hoping this product would work for me! I bought it a few weeks ago and used it for two days and, no joke, I broke out with two big cysts on my chin on the third day. I do not get cysts (I'm more of closed comedone/blackhead kinda gal), so I was pretty disturbed and knew this product had to be the culprit. I have no idea why, because the ingredient list seems pretty …Read more

May/15/2013

I'm obsessed with this cleanser. I'm on Retin-A for ~adult acne~ and my skin is sensitive and dry as dirt. For months I alternated jojoba oil-cleansing every other night with Burt's Bee's acne wash and my skin always looked irritated, flaky and clogged. I realize that the salicylic acid in the Burt's stuff really messed me up and was so happy to switch over to this …Read more
