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.

Wonderful moisturizing gel!
Purchased

Paula's Choice products have always worked well with my skin, and this gel is no exception. While it doesn't seem to do much about my fine lines, it does help brighten my skin and get rid of any dry, flaky patches. I don't care for the smell - it smells a bit like vitamin c powder - but it fades quickly, and the results are worth it. It works well under makeup, and doesn't leave a greasy residue.

I also love that it's in a pump - it's so easy to dispense, much more sanitary than jar packaging, and looks sleek on my vanity.

Outstanding.
Purchased

With oily skin, I have to be careful with moisturizers. But this is really light yet feels like my skin is sucking it up - in the best way possible. It has absolutely smoothed out my skin and is working to even out the tone!

Clearly youthful

I can honestly say that when I started using this product my face was breaking out due to climate changes, and three days later I could tell a difference. If you are looking for a skin clearing moisturizer, look no further. This stuff is great!

Nice and light
SampledPurchased

I use this moisturizer after the serum in this product line. It's a nice light creamy lotion and it never feels heavy or greasy. I use additional product whenever the air is dry like it is now (December) but it seems to do a great job regardless of the season. Based on my experience with the products I have purchased from this product line, I would be open to trying any of their other products.

It is so packed with moisture. It is super thick and gives my dry skin moisture all day long. The scent is nice too.

Moisturizer
Purchased

This is a great moisturizer for someone dealing with acne and doesn't like regular lotions. It gives wonderful moisture while being light in texture and does not clog pores. I am a little on the dry side so I may switch to something a little heavier when winter comes, but it was perfect for the summer months.

I loved this product so much I purchased it in the full size. I love how it's for all skin types not just one so that makes it great for combination skin (exactly what I have).
I found Paula's Choice through bb and I'm now a huge fan!
