Amazing and Non-Irritating!!
from Philadelphia, PA
About Me Minimalist
Comments about CALM Kit for Normal to Dry Skin - Full Kit:
I was hesitant to spend so much money on a kit, but what a wonderful value this has turned out to be. My skin is clearer and less red (in combination with the metronidazole topical cream I use for my rosacea). And these products are not irritating!! The first time I used the cleanser I was impressed. It felt so smooth and soothing compared to the sensitive skin cleanser I'd been using. The toner is amazing! I actually look forward to caring for my skin every day. I love the moisturizer - it comes in a tube, which is one of the two forms my dermatologist said the most moisturizing formulations would be packaged in (the other is a jar). I've tried all the products in the kit and all are recommended. I especially love the moisturizer with sunscreen. It rubs in well and is light enough to wear under makeup, if needed. And knowing something about chemistry and pharmaceutical packaging, I can say PC's attention to getting her product's packaging correct is extraordinary - seems like a small detail to some, but packaging is a huge part of maintaining quality and shelf life. I'm a convert!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

My holy grail :)
By Stephanie G.
I've waited a full month before submitting this review and I think it's time I spill :) This has been wonderful for my skin. It was dry, it was red, it was sensitive and while it didn't do any miracles (skin is still a little red and I had a few rashes), it did really made my skin feel nice and less reactive. I really love the fact that it doesn't smell much (small cucumber smell for the day cream). It does make my skin feel a little greasy for a few minutes but it sinks right in. Last week I could go outside with only a tinted moisturizer and a powder on top of everything and I didn't feel too red. Only a few pink pimples did show but I'm okay with those. This kit was a very nice introduction to Paula's Choice and I'm happy to say that I'll stay on the wagon!
Service and delivery comments:
It took a long time to get my product but it was perfect. Nothing broken or leaking :)

About Me Beauty Conscious
I started using Paula's Choice when I got samples for this line when it first came out.. I never looked back. I ordered the full size after a week of using the products. The redness in my face was reduced, the pores on my nose looked smaller, and it cleared my skin of the few bumps I had. This kit has drastically improved my skin texture and how dry and red it was. I love PC and exclusively use her products now. I threw out all the Clinique and Aveeno products I once used with no results.
Delivery is great. the fastest way 2 days. the slowest was 4. and customer service is outstanding!

These products are truly remarkable! Have been a Paula customer for several years, using the Resist products, loved them, but over the past 6 months have had episodes of redness, horribly dry patches that late in the day started to look like a severe peeling sunburn and no amount of moisturizer helped. Switched to the Calm products and it is gone. Please don't ever stop making this line - it is the best. Am positive that I can't be alone in loving it so much. My skin is happy and looks so much better.

Best skin care set EVER
By Monica W.
from North Carolina
I've been using a mix of several of Paula's Choice skin care products for approx 15 years, with good success. I tried the Calm Kit just on a whim. Even though I don't have redness, my skin can be sensitive at times. Calm Redness Relief is SO soothing. I've been using all the products in the kit. Although I've always had success with Paula's other products, I am hooked for good on Calm from now on.
Would not recommend
from Houston Tx
I bought this product after hearing about it from a friend, it sounded promising but after a while it started to do more harm than good. I use it regularly, almost everyday but after a few weeks my skin started to feel irritated and the skin on my nose and forehead started to peel and burn really bad. Now I have red blotches on my face. I'll admit, it did work for a bit. I've been dealing with rosacea for years now and I thought I finally found something that would help, I was wrong.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

About Me Beauty Expert
I love this entire set. I've been using a few weeks and my skin is now glowing and I don't need as much or any makeup (besides concealer for these genetic dark circles). The daytime sod moisturizer is my least fave because of the white cast and the feel of it - doesn't blend the greatest with makeup but great for makeup free days. All other products are phenomenal and I recommend. I even use the bha on my arms for KP and this has worked better than anything. My questions are for the BP team. The last skincare I used boasts of being pure and natural and using aloe as the number one ingredient in all of their products. Like PCs ingredient encyclopedia, they have a "naughty list" of ingredients too. A few things on their list are used in PC products so I wanted to address that. Petrolatum and Propylene Glycol supposedly clog pores. Sodium Laureth Sulfate was shown to cause cancer? This is based off of a lot of reading I've done and I can't say if it's factual or not so I wanted PC/BP's point of view. I already know parabens get a bad name but PC states there is no scientific proof that it's bad.

I had been struggling with my skin ever since I stopped taking hormonal birth control. I had been throwing a ton of products at my skin, but it seemed to just make my breakouts worse and increase the redness in my naturally red skin. I finally caved and contacted the Paula's Choice team and they directed me to this kit.Y'all, I'm a little mad that it works this well because now it means I need to spend all my money on Paula's Choice products. However, it's worth it because my skin rocks! I'm typically a minimalist and didn't know how I would do with layering the products, but holy cow is it worth the few extra minutes. I haven't broken out since I started using it, my skin is more even, and I see some of the hyperpigmentation spots starting to fade. It will be awhile (and maybe another serum) before the scarring goes away, but I'm off to a great start. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this kit to anyone with similar skin! While I don't use the nighttime moisturizer (I have my own prescription cream), it is a great product set that will allow you to try a variety of different items. Buy it now!
Customer service was so great! Thank you for pointing me in the right direction!

Sadly Didn't Work FOr Me
By Cali Gal
from Petaluma, CA
I had such high hopes for this line and was so excited to receive it. I am in my early 30s, have very sensitive, fair skin that always has a slight flush across my nose and cheeks. It can get very red from harsh products and sunburn easily. I also have been experiencing congested pores and breakouts along my jaw. A PC skincare expert recommended this line to me to help sooth my sensitive skin, while still improving my overall skin tone and clarity. I purchased the normal to oily kit as my t-zone can get very shiny by mid-day.The first night I received this, I used all 6 products, then the next morning I used everything except the BHA lotion. All of the products felt great going on – no stinging and my skin felt properly moisturized and smooth. A large pimple I had on my jawline even was almost gone. However, by mid-day my skin was RED, like sunburn red, and rough. I called PC immediately and they recommended using only the cleanser and AM & PM moisturizers, then adding in the other items slowly. I did this for 4 days and my skin only worsened – to the point that on the 5th morning I woke up with bright red, rough skin that was peeling and flaking and even my eyes were irritated and red. I must be allergic or sensitive to something in these products. Sadly I sent the whole thing back, but PC was wonderful about the return. Still on the hunt for something effective, yet gentle enough for my skin…
