Paula's Choice

Birchbox Breakdown

Battling wrinkles and blemishes seems like a bit of an oxymoron, but it’s an all too common fight for those with oily and combination skin. This antioxidant-packed lightweight gel hydrates and brightens, repairs damage and signs of aging, prevents acne, and acts as a perfect makeup primer—resulting in a smooth, more youthful-looking complexion.

How it Works

Powerful antioxidants and skin-repairing ingredients stimulate collagen production, repair sun damage, and reduce the appearance of dark spots. Lactoperoxidase kills breakout-causing bacteria, while soothing agents calm skin and promote its natural repair process. Gentle enough for use around the delicate eye area.

How to Use

Smooth one to two pumps of lotion onto cleansed skin, including around the eyes. Use day and night.

Water, cyclopentasiloxane (silicone slip agent), octyldodecyl neopentanoate (thickening/skin-conditioning agent), vinyl dimethicone/methicone silsesquioxane crosspolymer (silicone texture enhancer), glycerin (skin-identical/repairing ingredient), sodium ascorbyl phosphate (stabilized vitamin c), cetyl alcohol (thickener), niacinamide (cell-communicating ingredient), dimethicone (silicone slip agent), butylene glycol (slip agent), cetearyl alcohol, glyceryl stearate, peg-100 stearate (thickeners), polysilicone-11 (film-forming agent), adenosine (cell-communicating ingredient), epigallocatechin gallate (antioxidant), glucose oxidase, lactoperoxidase (skin-clearing agents), boerhavia diffusa root extract (plant extract/antioxidant), xanthan gum (binding agent/emulsifier), glucose (skin-identical/repairing ingredient), ceteareth-20 (solubilizing agent), decyl glucoside (emulsifier), citric acid (ph adjuster), phenoxyethanol (preservative).

I've heard rave reviews about Paula's Choice products so I decided to order a few. I am prone to breakouts mainly in the T-zone area and am occasionally oily. I'm very skeptical of lotions and creams. I fell in love. Very hydrating and does have that primer effect almost. It smoothes my skin and makes easier to apply my make-up!

Just okay

This moisturizer is alright. I used the sample for about a week. It has a slightly strange texture and I didn't like the smell.. it's fragrance free, so it smells just a bit, old, or something. Probably good for sensitive skin, but just didn't work out for me.

Awesome

It applies on very light and moisturizes the skin. It only takes a few minutes for it to absorb and it makes the skin feel very soft and smooth. I love it!

It's so light and I love it, I will be buying the full size! I'm not sure if it actually helps with wrinkles but it keeps my skin soft :)

Not bad, but not the best
Sampled

I thought this was pretty good when I tried it, but there are still dry areas after using this. I got an even better moisturizer in my ipsy bag, so I will not be purchasing this, but I keep the travel size with me.

I like this hydrator. A little goes a long way! Does not get my skin oily. My skin looks fresher and makes my make up look amazing!

Love the product, what little you get of it...
SampledPurchased

I immediately bought this after getting in in my box. I love it. I got the full size tube a little over a month ago. I only use it a few times a week (less than a pea sized amount each time) and it is ALREADY almost empty! I don't know if my bottle was a dud or what, but it is extremely disappointing for something to be this expensive and not even last that long with only moderate usage. :(

Great for sensitive skin
Sampled

It has a great texture for putting makeup on over the top of it, so it doubles as my moisturizer and primer. The packaging is sturdy and secure, with no risk of air getting in and breaking down the antioxidants, which this moisturizer is packed with.

Absolutely love

So far, I've tried two of Paula's Choice products, and I've loved each one. This moisturizer goes on lightweight, but definitely provides instant hydration. It is never greasy, and it helps provide a smooth base upon which to apply makeup.
