    I don't love everything natural.
    • Careful. I have respiratory allergies but didn't know I had any skin allergies until I tried the Earth Sourced line. I think some of the ingredients must be related to the plants that are my pathogens. I have also tried Neutrogena Naturals and had the same bad reaction (burning, stinging, aggravation of rosacea). I am back to using Paula's other products and finding most of them excellent and non-irritating. Nature isn't everyone's best friend!

    My favorite
    • I've tried every one of Paula's skin care lines and this one is my favorite. The cleanser is a nice, gel-based consistency, it removes makeup well, rinses completely and leaves my face feeling fresh and clean. The toner doesn't sting and it leaves my skin feeling soft and refreshed. I do use two applications of the cleanser if I'm wearing very heavy makeup but other than that, this cleanser and toner are my staples. The moisturizer is concentrated, it smells great, and is great for summer.

    Not the best for me
    • I am using the Earth Sourced sample kit while I wait for the arrival of the Skin Balancing line I have ordered. The products are okay, but don't improve my skin in any way. I haven't had a breakout, but I really need an exfoliant and a better daytime moisturizer. I appreciate the natural ingredients but need products to actively improve my skin, not just maintain the sub-standard status quo of my combo/acne-prone skin

    Excellent
    • I ordered samples of just about everything Paula sells a couple months ago and I can say without a doubt - this is my favorite product line! Every morning I gently exfoliate, then use this stuff (the toner only if I need it). It is great for combination skin because it provides just enough moisture without being greasy. I'm very impressed, especially since I live in the dry air of central New York. I will definitely be purchasing larger sizes!

    Not for me
    • Tried these sample sizes for a few nights, but my fussy skin broke out rather badly. I'll give them to my daughter to try, and go back to the other PC products that work so well for me. Customer Care Response: Thank you for your review. We are sorry to hear of your experience with these samples. While this response is not typical, we do understand that each customer is uniquely different in how they will respond to products or ingredients. This along with everyday environmental factors can sometimes play a part in how someone will ultimately respond to a product or combination of products. For that reason, we have located your account information and applied an in house credit for the samples which may be used on a future phone order. Please contact customer care with any questions.

    Very impressed
    • I took this sample set while traveling. You do get a total of 4 cleansers, 4 toners, and 4 moisturizers. I got 3 uses out of each pack. I have to say that I was very impressed with all three of these products. I thought they made my skin look great. I do have dry skin, but I did not have any dryness after the gel cleanser. I did apply the creamy toner right after, and then the moisturizer. Perhaps in cold, dry months, I would need the skin recovery moisturizer instead, for very dry skin. I did just order the toner and will order the complete set when I need a new cleanser.

Earth Sourced Perfectly Natural Cleansing Gel:

What makes this cleanser so great for baby's skin?

Earth Sourced Perfectly Natural Cleansing Gel contains pure, mild ingredients proven to be gentle for baby's delicate skin. The silky gel texture is soap-free and moves easily over baby's skin, rinsing without leaving a drying, itchy residue. This cleanser may be used to wash your baby from head to toe.

Do I still need to use an eye or face makeup remover?

It depends on how much eye or face makeup you are using or if you are wearing waterproof mascara, waterproof makeup, or other hard-to-remove makeup. If that is the case you can definitely use Paula's Choice Gentle Touch Makeup Remover to be sure all your face and eye makeup is removed. Otherwise, this cleanser effectively removes most types of makeup and is safe to be used over the eye area.

How does Earth Sourced Perfectly Natural Cleansing Gel differ from other Paula's Choice cleansers?

Every Paula's Choice cleanser is designed to be water-soluble and cleanse gently yet thoroughly. While most of our cleansers are balanced mix of beneficial natural and synthetic ingredients, Earth Sourced Perfectly Natural Cleansing Gel was created using 99% naturally-derived ingredients. It is formulated for all skin types and is ideal for those who prefer to use a cleanser with truly natural ingredients proven to help rather than irritate skin. Like all Paula's Choice cleansers, Earth Sourced Perfectly Natural Cleansing Gel is fragrance- and colorant-free.

Just how natural are the Earth Sourced products?

Earth Sourced products are formulated with 98–99% completely natural ingredients. The natural ingredients we use are guaranteed to be non-irritating, safe, and effective for many different skin types. The ingredients are derived in whole or in part from natural sources with no synthetic compounds. Paula's Choice uses a specialized, proprietary technology to ensure these natural products have elegant textures and function as intended—all without using ingredients known to cause irritation. That's a big difference from what Paula and her team have seen from countless other natural lines, as many of them contain natural ingredients research has shown irritate skin and damage healthy collagen production.

Why aren't all Paula's Choice products "Earth Sourced"?

For many skincare concerns, putting together a completely effective group of products that will give your skin truly remarkable results when it comes to treating most skincare concerns such as acne or sensitive skin simply can't be done with only natural ingredients. Paula's Choice Earth Sourced products work beautifully when combined with other Paula's Choice products designed for your skin type and concerns.

Earth Sourced Purely Natural Refreshing Toner:

How can a toner improve my baby's skin?

Earth Sourced Purely Natural Refreshing Toner is loaded with soothing agents, gentle hydrating ingredients, and antioxidants designed to smooth and reinforce healthy skin. It can be especially beneficial for babies with eczema or other signs of dryness, redness, or irritation. Ongoing use helps keep baby's skin baby smooth!

What do toners "tone"? I thought Paula didn't recommend toners!

Paula has always recommended toners that are well-formulated. Toners can be a great after-cleansing step to be sure you've removed all your makeup and to give skin essential skin repairing and healing ingredients in a light liquid base. When properly formulated, toners soothe skin and add hydrating ingredients to make skin softer, not to mention they're another leave-on source for antioxidants and other ingredients that help repair and restore skin.

How do I know which toner is right for me? Besides skin type, what are the main differences between Paula's Choice toners?

All of our toners restore skin, help emove last traces of makeup, are alcohol- and fragrance-free, and contain no plant-based or synthetic irritants. All our toners are great as an adjunct to any skincare routine. Even more significantly they go beyond the basics by offering skin benefits you can see and feel.

Earth Sourced Purely Natural Refreshing Toner is for all skin types. It has a distinctive, liquid-gel formula bursting with antioxidants proven to repair skin and stimulate collagen production. The formula uses proprietary technology that truly captures the best of nature and modern science.

Hydralight Healthy Skin Refreshing Toner is an excellent choice for normal to oily/combination skin. It provides a weightless finish, and although it feels very light, it supplies skin with potent antioxidants and anti-irritants. Hydralight Healthy Skin Refreshing Toner is a great option for those who want more protection and a soothing, soft, feeling on their skin, particularly those with sensitive skin. To get the benefits of both toners for normal to oily/combination skin, you may want use Hydralight Healthy Skin Refreshing Toner in the morning and Skin Balancing Pore-Reducing Toner in the evening.

Moisture Boost Essential Hydrating Toner contains ingredients that help soothe and restore normal to dry skin, plus it includes a greater amount of glycerin, a key ingredient to make dry skin look and feel better. It also contains a broad range of ingredients that aid the barrier repair process so those with dry skin (or normal skin with occasional dry patches) will receive even more benefit from their Paula's Choice moisturizer and/or specialty product. Moisture Boost Essential Hydrating Toner feels lighter than our Skin Recovery Enriched Calming Toner, yet still provides an array of antioxidants, anti-irritants, and skin-protecting ingredients. To get the benefits of both toners for normal to dry skin, you can use Moisture Boost Essential Hydrating Toner in the morning and Skin Recovery Enriched Calming Toner in the evening.

Skin Recovery Enriched Calming Toner for normal to very dry skin is an excellent choice for those who need more help protecting their skin from environmental damage or dryness. Skin Recovery Enriched Calming Toner has a richer texture than any of our other toners and contains more plant oils and other emollients than our Moisture Boost Essential Hydrating Toner. This is a great option for dry to very dry skin, extremely sun damaged skin, or those dealing with eczema or rosacea accompanied by dry skin.

Skin Balancing Pore-Reducing Toner for normal to oily/combination skin is excellent for protecting skin from environmental damage or dryness. In addition, its cell-communicating ingredients can, in theory, help balance skin so its oily areas do not worsen or lead to reddened or blemished skin. Skin Balancing Pore-Reducing Toner uses a more complex formulation than our Healthy Skin Refreshing Toner, and helps restore normal cell function.

Resist Advanced Replenishing Toner is a specialized formula designed to supply aging skin with a broad range of ingredients it needs to produce healthy collagen while reducing wrinkles. It is a super-charged version of our popular Skin Recovery Enriched Calming Toner, with a specific emphasis on improving the signs of aging skin.

I have dry skin. Which Paula's Choice moisturizer should I use?
