Paula's Choice has been one of my favorite skincare brands since the first time I start using their Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid (more about it later in this post). Paula's Choice doesn't test on animals and is not using any irritating dyes or fragrances. The brand offers a great range of products that suit different skin types as well as targets different skin concerns.
When shopping for skincare products, sometimes I feel overwhelmed and not exactly sure which of the products will actually help my skin. Paula's Choice offers FREE personal skin consultation (call this number 1-800-831-4088) to help you find the correct products and address those skin issues. It really helped me with choosing the products I will be talking about in this post.
My biggest skin concern: dull, tired skin
Skin type: combination
Products that were suggested for me:
Cleansing & Toning
Resist Perfectly Balanced Foaming Cleanser - formulated with ceramides and hyaluronic acid. Very gentle cleanser that removes makeup as well as helps my skin feel soft and smooth afterwards.
Resist Advanced Replenishing Toner - this toner claims to calm skin and restore radiance. Also it has anti-aging ingredients. I haven't use a toner since I was in high school, so it was interesting to me to add a toner to my skincare routine. I start using it after washing my face in the morning and at night after removing my makeup. It definitely made my skin feel refreshed and clean.
Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid - this is an absolute must-have. I actually just finished my first bottle of this product and I am very happy I got another one. I was struggling with enlarged pores and blackheads around my nose area and I've tried many different masks, nose strips etc. and this product changed everything. It is an exfoliant but let me tell you one thing - it really works. It smoothed out my skin, made my pores smaller and most important my blackheads disappeared. I am using it once a day and over time you can definitely see huge difference with how great your skin will look like. I love, love this product!
Skin Treatment & Moisturizer
Resist Pure Radiance Skin Brightening Treatment - This is one of my new favorite skin treatments at the moment. I use it every day under Resist Matifying fluid and it's the best combination for my combination skin. This product is a great base for a very lightweight Resist Matifying fluid because it gives my skin that extra hydration without causing any oiliness and especially in the winter time I feel like this product keeps my skin hydrated and radiant.
Resist Youth-Extending Matifying Fluid with SPF 50 - This lotion is very lightweight in texture. It almost has watery texture to it but when applied it gives my skin just the right amount of moisture. Combinated with Resist Pure Radiance Treatment it hydrates my skin nicely without being too heavy. Both product make a great under makeup base. If you have combination or oily skin this Resist Matifying Fluid is a must-have.
Resist Barrier Repair Moisturizer with Retinol - this is my night time cream because it doesn't contain any SPF. It feels lightweight and it's a great anti-age product because it contains Retinol and other great ingredients that prevent wrinkles. It also stimulates collagen production.
Paula's Choice Lip Perfecting Gentle Scrub - this lip exfoliant is very gentle but let me tell you - it leaves my lips super soft and moisturized. I usually will massage it onto dry lips for like 20-30 seconds and then rinse with water and voila - my lips are smooth and ready for even the driest lipstick.
I love reading different articles about skincare as well as beauty in general, that is why I was super stocked when I got these two books by Paula Bergoun. They are very informative and very helpful with answering any questions I had regarding skincare as well as beauty.
