I know that I’ve mentioned Paula’s Choice Skincare quite a bit on my blog. But I thought I would sit down and actually dedicate a post to the brand. My skin is really finicky so I tend to change my skincare pretty often. However, I do like to keep some products consistent because I know that they just work.
My skin type is definitely extreme combination. I manage to get oily and dry in the same place. I don’t know how that’s possible but what can I say, my skin is really talented. I also have really sensitive skin so I try not to use too many products with fragrance as they just make me super red and irritated.
Skin Perfecting 8% AHA Gel: This is by far my favorite Paula’s Choice product that I have tried. It exfoliates the skin and removes dead skin cells without drying the skin out. I like BHA’s but too much of that and my skin goes a bit haywire. I use AHA every morning before my lotion.
RESIST Youth Extending Daily Mattifying Fluid SPF 50: This is a fantastic thin SPF that I love using over my moisturizer. I really don’t like thick SPF’s as they tend to clog my pores so this is perfect!
CLEAR Daily Skin Clearing Treatment 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide: You will never run out of this. The tube is MASSIVE and you need the smallest amount! I like to use this at night on any open blemishes. I find that this dries them up without drying up the surrounding skin. Really good, love it.
RESIST Retinol Serum: Yeah, yeah, I know. I’m 23, I don’t need this. But hear me out! This has vitamin C and retinol and actually helps to fade any dark marks that I may have. It’s also just super luxurious feeling! You need just a drop for your whole face and my face just glows by the next morning!
Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Exfoliant: So, as I said earlier, BHA can make my skin a bit crazy. Sometimes it loves it, sometimes not so much. I use this VERY sparingly. I only use this where I have visible pores and I only use it about twice a week maximum. Otherwise I find it’s way too much and my skin gets dry, then it gets overly oily, then I break out. This one’s a bit finicky but I’m still testing it out!
I would just like to say that I bought all of these products with my own money. This may seem a bit excessive but I just really like that none of these products have a scent so they’re great for sensitive skin. Have you tried anything from Paula’s Choice? Let me know down in the comments!
