Brand Overview

Paula's Choice Skincare At-A-Glance

Paula's Choice Skincare was established in 1995 when best-selling beauty author and consumer advocate Paula Begoun (known as The Cosmetics Cop) decided to develop her own products. Like most of us, she was fed up with products that overpromised results, cost a lot of money, and failed to deliver—or made matters worse!

As a natural evolution of Paula's personal mission to help consumers find the best products for their skin, the line has grown into an extensive range of skincare and makeup products that are formulated to meet the needs of almost every skin type and skin concern imaginable. From acne to wrinkles, oily skin, rosacea, large pores, eczema, redness, dry skin, and on and on, Paula's Choice offers a solution.

Paula's Choice Skincare stands apart from other cosmetics brands. The formulas contain only ingredients that have substantiated, published research showing they are beneficial and effective—so you get visible results. Stable packaging is another feature of the brand, using innovative, opaque, and air-tight or air-restrictive components that keep antioxidants and other light- and air-sensitive ingredients from breaking down. The line is also 100% fragrance-free, which is best for all skin types, especially for those with sensitive skin or rosacea.

Disclosure: Paula Begoun is the creator of Beautypedia and founder of Paula's Choice Skincare products. Reviewing thousands of skincare and makeup products over the past 30 years, both on this site and in her best-selling books, Paula's mission has always been to help consumers find the best products possible for their skin. The Beautypedia Team proudly and unequivocally maintains this commitment. In addition, The Beautypedia Team reviews all products using the same rating standards and criteria, whether it is a Paula's Choice product or another brand.

Why are all Paula's Choice Skincare products rated highly? The Paula's Choice Skincare Team would not launch a product unless it was worthy of a high rating from The Beautypedia Team. Paula and The Beautypedia Team were researching and reviewing products long before Paula's Choice Skincare ever existed and consumers were constantly requesting a skincare brand that met all of Beautypedia's criteria. As a result, The Paula's Choice Skincare Team was created and uses the same research and criteria to formulate Paula's Choice products as The Beautypedia Team uses to review products.

Strengths: All products are fragrance-free; uniquely formulated AHA and BHA products; effective skin-lightening options; toners that go beyond the norm; all sunscreens provide broad spectrum protection; proven anti-acne products; antioxidant-rich serums and moisturizers; anti-aging products that work as claimed.

Weaknesses: Does not offer a complete collection of makeup; makeup shade range isn’t as extensive for darker skin tones; limited concealer options.

In my quest for the perfect moisturizer I thought choosing a product from the site's line would be a good option, as it is so frequently recommended, but this was a major disappointment. The moisturizer seemed to sit on top of my skin and never felt like it hydrated my skin at all. The product also felt greasy and left my skin looking a bit oily as well. I stopped using after a few weeks because it was doing nothing for me.

Hey there! Thanks for your feedback! We're sorry you didn't love this product but encourage you to e-mail Paula's Choice's Customer Service team and they can assist you in a refund or exchange =)


I actually used to like this product but something changed and it makes my face very itchy. Not to mention - it used to cost me $9.99 now it's $26.00?!?! Ridiculous!

I LOVE this cream! I have tried so many moisturizers that I was about to give up. I have tried Rose day cream , La Mer, Murad, Skinceuticals, Yonka, Neutrogena, Olay and many more brands, as you can see I was not discriminating on name brand and cost, I just wanted something to work on my skin. I got a sample and it was love at first application. I just got my order a few weeks ago and never been happier.

Very, very good. Not once did I see flaking when I applied my foundation. It glides on and stays on. Although this is the best moisturizing moisturizer I've worn under foundation-ever, there is a negative effect. Because my skin feels so good at the end of the night, I don't want to take it off. It feels like a waste. I will still do so, of course!
