Disclosure: In addition to reviewing thousands of cosmetic products from hundreds of brands over the past 30 years, Paula also has her own line of products called Paula's Choice. Paula and her team's goal is to help you find the best products possible for your skin whether they are from Paula's Choice or some other product line. Paula's commitment to this is so strong she is the only cosmetics company owner in the world that recommends products other than her own. Paula and the Paula's Choice Research Team formulate our products to meet or exceed the criteria we use to review products from every other brand on this site. We review all products the same way using the same research, objective comments, and praise no matter whose product it is.

Paula's Choice was created in 1995 in response to the many readers who asked Paula to develop her own products. Given Paula's unique overview of the cosmetics industry, 30+ years of research, and earnest desire to help people find the best products for their skin-care needs, creating her own products was a natural extension of her work. Paula's Choice range of products are designed to meet the needs and preferences of just about every skin type and concern imaginable using only proven ingredients substantiated by published research.

Paula's Choice products provide:

  • State-of-the-art formulas based on reliable, published skin-care research
  • Proven effective solutions for wrinkles, acne, rosacea, and sensitive skin
  • Gentle yet effective products for those seeking a natural skin-care routine
  • Fragrance-free formulas (because it is what's best for your skin)
  • Cruelty-free formulas: Paula's Choice does not test on animals during any stages of product development—nor do we contract with third parties to conduct animal testing on our behalf
  • Environmentally-friendly products that feature minimalist packaging that ensures product efficacy
  • 100% Customer Satisfaction Guarantee from our world-class Customer Service Team

Paula's Choice products and Paula's work is routinely praised by noted dermatologists and other professionals. New York-based dermatologist Dr. Debra Jaliman stated that "I have a lot of respect for Paula Begoun and the way she thoroughly researches her subject. Her recommendations about cosmetics and skin care are deservedly influential." Eminent Seattle-based dermatologist Dr. Brandith Irwin concurs: "She takes a complex subject and makes it easy to understand!"

    This gem has more than one facet
    • I tried this lotion because I didn't care for the oiliness of the 2% BHA liquid. I needed a BHA for an oily T zone with enlarged pores and blackheads, but would use the 2% only at night 2-3 times per week on my aging, sensitive, combo skin. I use this every a.m. with no irritation, control of pores, and the beautiful combination of a matte finish that does not dry. My skin feels hydrated, comfortable. The finish is like that of a primer without the smothering feel primers impart.

    Quick and Effective for Sensitive Skin
    • I had tried the 2% BHA previously and found it too drying and inflammatory for my very sensitive skin. The 1% lotion is a better choice for me. A single pump of the lotion will cover most of my face and does not cause excessive tightness on my nose and chin, or peeling and itchy redness on my cheeks. After 2 days of use, overall redness is reduced and my skin is visibly smoother. It does have a noticeable smell but it dissipates quickly when I put my regular moisturizer over it.
