purchasing for the third time...that good.

If you don't know about Paula's Choice, you are missing out. Her story began when she took it upon herself to analyze and "grade" as many professional skin products as she possibly could and publish a book "Don't Go the the Cosmetics Counter Without Me!" I got it from my sister for a holiday gift. Paula was strict-she outlawed anything that came in a "jar", told you when a product was poorly packaged (like if it allowed sunlight to get through and destroy ingredients) and gave only those products that were both incredibly effective and accurately priced (not overpriced) her high ratings. I went through my products and threw half of them away. At some point, Paula threw up her hands and developed her own line, Paula's Choice. There are some incredible, affordable, amazing products in this line. The acne kit resurfaced my skin to the point that I get compliments and asked "what do you use" every week of my life. This particular product is one of the TOP of all tops. It had a packaging issue that has now been resolved. I love the way it feels on my face, and I feel a true, remarkable difference using it. I put it on my arm where I had scarring and it helped that too! I also love her BHA 2% gel. Like a salicylic toner that you don't swipe on, you glide on and it stays there, to kill any impending pimples. So many amazing products, this one being a personal favorite, you'll find yourself trying more than one, and it won't break the bank! Thanks Paula!

Sensitve and dry skin review
Purchased

My skin is acne prone and dry at the same time. I use this before I go to bed and it soaks right in and doesn't feel greasy at all...by morning my face feels soft and it's glowing without a greasy residue.

Great for my 50+ face
Sampled

This product goes on so smoothly and I used the whole sample with great results so I will be ordering the full size. It really worked on fine lines and made my skin feel former and more hydrated.

This product works!
SampledPurchased

I initially received this as a sample and I just purchased it. I suffered a lot of sun damage last summer, especially under my eyes. When I started using this, it evened out the skin discoloration under my eyes and smoothed away wrinkles. The serum absorbs very quickly and doesn't leave a greasy sheen. I wake up with my skin feeling soft and smooth. It's great stuff.

Wonderful!
Purchased

I have only used this for over a week, and I'm already seeing results! I have acne prone skin, and I have not had a single break out. The lines on my face are already diminishing. This is non-greasy, and feels great!!! Love it!

SWEAR By this

I swear by this product. I used for a few weeks and totally noticed a difference in wrinkles...there were less or at least less noticeable. I am a true believer in this product.

Does your skin good : )

I'm a really loyal skin care person. I have my faves and don't like to stray. Have to say my skin likes this product though. It's a serum and slightly oily so I use it before bed. Skin feels super smooth by morning.

Allergic Reaction

Reading through the reviews, it seems like this worked well for other people. However, after a day or two of using the product I had red, itchy, puffiness all over my face. I had to throw my sample away.

Love it!!

This serum is my favorite I've tried! It goes on smoothly (you don't need too much) and my face just drinks it in!
I mainly use it at night but when I use it in the morning it leaves my face feeling young and fresh!

This serum goes on smoothly & is very light. Skin feels rejuvenated after use & looks refreshed. I would recommend this for nightly use.
