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!"

    Not for My Very Dry Skin
    • I wish I could use this moisturizer, but it's not moisturizing enough for my dry to very dry skin. I hope Paula will come out with a moisturizer for my type of skin. I have recommended it to my daughter, whose skin is not as dry as mine, and she loves it.

    So far, so good
    • It's always been a challenge for me to find a moisturizer that is not too heavy for my sensitive skin, and/or does not cause breakouts or irritates my eyes. I started using Paula's Skin Recovery Moisturizer in 2005 (as well as her cleansers). The moisturizer worked very well for me until the formula changed, in 2007, to a heavier consistency, at which time It started to irritate my eyes, even though I don't use moisturizer in the eye area for that reason. Recently, I decided to try product samples of the Skin Recovery Moisturizer, to see if the formula might have changed again. The moisturizer is now very light in texture and seems to agree with me. I use it in the morning under my Paula's Sheer Tint with SPF 30 (I have been using Paula's Sheer Tint SPF 20 since '05 or '06), and also at night after cleansing. It now feels like the right texture for my skin and is a good base for the Sheer Tint. Hopefully, I will continue to get good results.
