Like it, not love

I really have not noticed a huge difference in my skin since using this. It does exfoliate but does not do anything for fine lines which I sadly have noticed on my face:( So, I will be looking for another product to help with those.
This does make your skin soft so if you are using just for that and possibly to even out skin tone then it would be good.

No-Nonsense results
Purchased

I've followed Paula since her "Don't Go to the Cosmetic Counter Without Me" days. I used her reviews as a guide when purchasing make up and skin care. But I had never taken the plunge to purchase her own brand of products. The price point was great, and she clearly knows what she is doing…but would they work? Yes. I have fair, sensitive skin and am focused on moisture and preventative anti-aging in my nightly routine. Two pumps of this product and I am good to go each night. Sometimes I add another couple of products on top of it, but this product stands up to its claim no matter how I use it in conjunction with other products.

Good Reviews Convinced Me to Buy

And I am glad I did. At this point, it's hard to tell if anything really works anymore! But I do think I've noticed a slight improvement over other products and it's a lot of product for the money.

Smoothing is right!

I've used this product and it does a great job of keeping my skin smooth. Unfortunately, I have to take breaks from it because my skin is pretty sensitive, but it take a while to start to feel irritated by this. It's so much better than manual scrubs, though.

One of the things I love about this product is that it also has a little bit of BHA in it, so not only is it exfoliating the surface of your skin, it's also exfoliating into the pores.

PAULA'S CHOICE FANATIC

I am absolutely in love with everything from this brand. This product specifically helped transform my dull, bumpy skin to a flawless texture. I've even started to get comfortable without wearing makeup. Just make sure to up your SPF while using this product.

Excellent Moisturizer

I love light moisturizers I can apply day or night that really refresh my skin. Paula's Choice "RESIST" moisturizer is excellent. After a few days my skin was softer, moisture balanced, and fine lines reduced. Works well in the morning under make-up and at night before bed. It does a little bit of everything and doesn't irritate the skin. Love it!

Noticeably Smoother
Purchased

So I have been a convert and have started using a strict regimen on my skin. I was always the simple type of gal. I was skeptical of regimented skin routines. I was soap and water lady. Being well into my 30's now, I was beginning to get frustrated with adult acne and fine lines and wrinkles. Since I have been religiously using Paula's choice gel exfoliant, I have noticed that my actual skin is smoother. I used to have flesh colored bumps and regular breakouts. All of this has been greatly reduced. I will probably never stop using these products. I wish that I had discovered this years earlier.

Nightly love for my face.
Purchased

I tend to use this most nights for my face. The next morning my face is smooth and moisturized while having been chemically exfoliated. I love that I can apply this and go, instead of applying another BHA or AHA, waiting a bit, and then applying moisturizer. Make sure to use less frequently when beginning, and there shouldn't be any issues. If there is any broken skin, this can burn a bit! I like to use it after making the mistake of resting my chin on my hand during the day (which nearly always leads to deep cystic acne), and this seems to very very significantly reduce the occurrence of that.

improvement in my skin

I have already noticed my skin clearer and smoother. The product isn't harsh on my skin like some have been.
