About Me Beauty Conscious
Comments about Earth Sourced Kit - Complete Kit:
For years I struggled with facial eczema. It caused me a lot of discomfort, and I was constantly worried about putting steroid creams and the like on my face. I literally spent thousands of dollars trying different "top end" creams and they had varying degrees of effectiveness, but I never was free of my eczema. It was really hard on me. I also had allergic reactions constantly to these products. Finally I found Paula's Choice, and WOW! I first started using the moisturizer in this kit, and then recently bought the full kit because I wanted to see what having a full skincare routine would be like. Just the moisturizer alone cleared my eczema (it's totally gone!!), but this full kit has made my skin look really, really good! My skin is moisturized; tone and texture are even; any fine lines I have reduced; and no more redness, itching or allergies! The cleanser is really nice, it's non-irritating (and I have super sensitive skin) but still manages to remove makeup beautifully. Feels great on the skin too. The toner is quite nice - it's light but delivers moisture. My favourite product in this kit is the moisturizer. When I first started using it alone it cleared up my eczema, and has continued to keep my skin in amazing condition ever since. It smells nice, is light, and right away I noticed a reduction in my fine lines. The ingredients are really great in all of these products. I am totally in love! I also paired this kit with the Resist Ultra-Light Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum and it's also a star product! If you're hesitating trying a full skincare routine, give it a try - you might be pleasantly surprised! I know I was.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have mostly dry skin and this kit is pretty great, but the moisturizer, which I use at night is too light for this purpose, but I add a facial oil and that combination works fine. The cleanser is gentle but effective and the toner is good as well. I've been using this kit in conjunction with the 8% AHA, Resist Super Antioxidant serum and daytime moisturizer and despite being pregnant my skin has been virtually clear, completely different from my first pregnancy.

He loves it
from Bath, UK
Got the set for my boy friend who does has sensitive and combination skin. He likes it and works work on his skin. Very pleased with it! We were considering getting him PCmen , knowing how sensitive his skin is, we deicded to go for the earth scored version but add PC4Men Soothe + Smooth. and CLEAR ULTRA-LIGHT DAILY FLUID SPF 30+ instead of PC4Men Daytime Protect SPF 30 which is actually identical to our Skin Balancing Ultra Sheer Daily Defense SPF 30- and I had used this one before, it irritated me. All and all, this is by far the best choice for him with a bit of "custom extra". After all, its all about the skin type, not about age or gender.

Loved the cleanser, liked the toner
By Sean Duffy
from Victoria, BC
The cleanser just felt fantastic to me, a full feeling on the skin; the toner is rich in a non-occlusive way and satisfied my demanding shins; and the moisturizer is adequate, but not a star, which is fine. We don't all have to be stars all the time to be effective. I have a feeling that non-star activity and rather getting the basics covered can be welcome for the skin intermittently. In the past couple of weeks I've just had of introducing my skin to a couple consecutive days of benzoyl peroxide 5%, 1% retinol every four days and BHA 9 all over the face a couple of times, I was in need of just a basic cleanse, tone and moisturize for sensitive skin, which these products delivered. All of Paula's Choice products are well formulated that I've tried, but as a prior organic skin care products user, I am glad I can still indulge my inclination to gravitate towards the "natural." P.S. The scent of the moisturizer is, um, interesting. I suppose they were going for 'earthy'? Won't be a favorite of mine. But having said that, once on you don't smell it at all.

About Me Beauty Expert
First of all: the cleanser smells amazing, like cucumbers. Usually paula's choice doesn't smell amazing because there is no fragrance, but the cleanser surprisingly does. It also is really really good value for money with this kit. I have dry acne prone skin, and am recovering from a bad breakout currently with an outburst of dry skin (the acne exfoliants and treatments, while effective, dry out my already dry skin). This kit is exactly what I needed: simple, hydrating but light, and soothing. I love the packaging, and overall my favorite product is the toner. It's almost like a milk, not a normal drying toner. My skin just adores it, my redness is gone after one use. The moisturizer is good too, but the real stars are the toner and the cleanser. It's perfect in every way. PLEASE MAKE AN SPF MOISTURIZER IN THIS LINE! Love paula's choice so much.

I really like these products - they are gentle, yet effective - and not too greasy. I have combo/oily skin prone to occasional breakouts. I use these w/ Paula's Choice 2% Salicylic Acid toner and SPF moisturizer during the day. I love that they do not have a strong fragrance - so many "natural" products that I have tried have been overly fragranced and overly oily/greasy. This is perfect. I wish Paula would expand this line to include an exfoliant and SPF moisturizer - please add these! :)

I absolutely love this if you just want to clean your face gently. Since I am acne prone, I use this in conjunction with the PC Clear Regular Strength Kit and I alternate between the kits about every other day and I keeps my skin clean and soft.
Keeps getting better
By Jaime T
On a whim I ordered this natural line, along with the resist 5% exfoliant, even though I was convinced I had perfected my routine. WOW am I ever glad I did! My combo, rosacea, acne prone skin is beyond happy after 1 week- this set blows all of my previouly loved items out of the water. My favorite item of the 3 being the toner which is chocked full of good stuff and feels like a thin serum... my skin just drinks it up! Just when I thought it couldn't get any better, it did!
Fantastic skin care
By Kelley S.
All three products are wonderful. I have combination skin, and the cleanser is great at both hydrating and effectively cleansing, without exacerbating oiliness. I had thought toners were a waste of money, but I love this one and my skin just drinks it in. I use the moisturizer at night, and find it very effective. I wish I had tried Paula's Choice sooner, I really do have the best skin of my life!
By SARA V.
The Earth Sourced System has been my go-to skincare system ever since it came out. I use the cleanser and toner twice daily, morning and evening, and I use the moisturizer as a night lotion. I love everything about these three products. The cleanser is very gentle yet effective without drying my sensitive skin, the toner is silky soft and moisturizing, and the lotion is light and absorbs well into my skin. Great system, and natural too!
