    Miracle worker!
    • I tried numerous products over the past year to address redness, bumps and pain caused by rosacea, and this system did the job within a few days. I continue to use my prescription gel, but only at night instead of twice a day. No pain, no bumps, almost no redness -- what a contrast! I have lovely skin now. I have switched to the Hydralight SPF 30, with good results so far, for the more humid summer months. Thanks, Paula, for your great advice and wonderful products!

    Best. Products. Ever!!
    • This line of products has been an absolute godsend for me. I am 45 years old and have suffered with Rosacea for the past 10 years. This NYC winter wreaked havoc on my skin, nothing was helping my dry,red, raw, thick, pimply skin on my cheeks and forehead. The medication from the Dr just left my skin even more dry it was flaking off my cheeks. I would use a lot of makeup to cover up the redness. After using this line for only 3 weeks, my skin literally transformed. I can go makeup free!!

    Not the miracle I hoped for
    • These products have improved my skin. The texture is better, my pores are clearer, and my skin is soft and smooth instead of bumpy. However, the redness and enlarged pores remain. Better than any other products I've tried, but I'm disappointed that the redness has not been reduced.

    A Godsend. I wish I had tried it sooner.
    • I have been dealing with Rosacea for the past 6 years. I have tried everything under the sun, natural, drugstore, high end etc. I've spent more money than I care to think about. Finally, I got frustrated because not only was my rosacea at its all time worst, I also developed a patch of dermatitis on my upper lip the size of a half dollar. I could not get it to go away. I finally ordered this set and it was miraculous. Overnight my dermatitis was gone and rosacea improved. I am a believer.

    Rosacea System is great
    • I have had Rosacea since I was 35. I am now 56. I have tried other products, but without success. I have dry/very dry skin, no acne. I decided to try the whole Rosace system. I have used it for 3 months now. I absolutely love it. My skin looks great. The redness has reduced to the point you really don't see it much at all. I even go without a face make-up now. I had a facial yesterday. The esthetician said my skin looked great! I will definitely continue to buy these products.

    Love it! Only one small complaint...
    • I received samples of this set about a week ago and I'm loving everything except for that the moisturizers sting my eyes a bit. I try not to get them too close to my eyelids, but somehow I keep getting it in there. That aside, my skin seems to really love the routine. The 1% BHA only irritated one teeny part of my jaw line, and because I've tried similar chemical exfoliants, I'm well acquainted with that "burn". All I did was skip that area for the day, and all was well.

    My miracle cure!
    • I am 46 and have suffered with acne and rosacea for 3 decades. I have tried anti-biotics, topical solutions, and a wide array of skin products from all over the world. I have been using Paula's choice for about two months now and my skin is the clearest it has been since my skin woes started. I can even go out without make-up now. I am thrilled to finally have found my miracle cure - thank you Paula!

    Not For Me
    • I was hopeful that the rosacea on my cheeks, nose & chest would respond well to the "Rosacea System Normal to Dry." It did not. In fact, my skin became even more red & blotchy. I've been using Paula's Choice products exclusively since 2003 and this is the only time I can recall that I've been unhappy.

    Red to clear
    • This Rosacea kit works, but I think the trick is to NOT give up too soon. The first week, my skin was red and I wanted to quit. By the end of the second week, my skin went from red/ peeling to clear, creamy, white. I haven't see my skin look this way for years. In my 30's I noticed my face getting redder, so I used more makeup to cover, I am now using less foundation since starting this set. I am thrilled with these products! My favorites are the toner and BHA. Thank you so much Paula's Choice!

    So happy!
    • I am so happy with my purchase of Rosacea system normal to dry. Last night ordered for the 3rd time. While I'm not cured, I am so pleased by the results of using this system! My skin is SO much better. Will continue to use this skin care system to keep my redness under contol. I will note, I did try the all bases covered foundation and found it doesn't work for my skin. It caused a flare up with the red bumps worsening:( waited a week, tried again the same thing happened.

    Love The Product!
    • I started using the product in March 2013. I tried several over the counter products but none of them worked. Within a couple of weeks I noticed a difference. The redness, bumps, itching and some of my red lines were disappearing. After one month of use, several of my friends asked me if I had something done to my face. They said it looked smooth and fresh. The only thing I had been using was the Paula's Rosacea System. Now, I'm not afraid to occasionally go without makeup. I love the product!

    Top of the line skin care products
    • I have been using the rosacea line for years, I stopped using the products as I live in Canada and found the shipping can be expensive. I noticed my skin was getting worse without using Paula's products so I just recently ordered the rosacea line again. Well let me tell you within a couple of days my skin is smooth and my rosacea is much better, in fact, I have got so many compliments on my skin. My brother tried my cleanser & moisturizer & now he wants me to order him some products.

    Disappointed!
    • I have been diagnosed with having Rosacea. I have tried the gel that they all prescribe and it seemed to make the breaking out worse and just dried out my skin. One dermatologist gave me a foam moisturizer and it did help with the dryness, but did nothing for the pustuals. I am now on an antibiotic which I have taken for a week with no difference. I saw Paula's Choice and thought I had found the answer to my prayers, but after several weeks, my skin is no better. The BHA lotion made it worse.

    Thank you for your review, and we're sorry your experience wasn't what you had hoped! While this system has absolutely worked for many in terms of alleviating their rosacea symptoms, it is a tricky concern, and for some a different combination of products may work out better. We would recommend that you contact our Customer Care Department via phone or email, as they would be happy to assist with a credit or exchange.

    Really Surprising
    • I just got carded, buying a bottle of wine at the store - and I'm turning 40 in 6 months! Of course, when that happened, my first thought was "Thank you Paula!" I have been using this line for about a month, and I cannot believe how wonderful my skin feels. I honestly can't remember it ever having felt this good before in my life. I no longer have that dry tightness that screams out for moisture, or that rough, filmy feeling once the moisture is applied. I also no longer have breakouts.

    Finally an Approach that Works
    • My prescription gel to control rosacea works well (much better than when I thought I had acne and using the wrong products!) but leaves my skin a bit dry, irritated and often very red and tight . So I began Paula's Skin Recovery system two weeks ago. Today the redness is controlled and my face feels as smooth as baby's skin from the moisturizer. I like that this kit leaves off the serum, which my skin didn't seem to like based on a sample. The BHA lotion is helping even out some imperfections.

    rosacea worsened
    • Experienced a bad reaction to these products. My face reddened, became inflamed and was painful,similar to a bad sunburn. I, of course was disappointed and was hoping to alleviate the redness on my face from rosacea. I returned the products and ordered the Resist products which work well for my sensitive skin.

    WAY LESS RED & Feels So Good !
    • I have just started using this system yesterday & already it has calmed my skin down so much that I would feel comfortable being seen without makeup. Up intil the last few years, I had great skin & I could use anything. I am coming up on my 54th BD & now everything turns me red. I've been searching for something to help & nothing has til now! I came back to order some samples of other things to try. Since I just started this using these products, I expect my results to get better and better.

    Perfect for winter months!
    • Cold weather, cold wind, dry heat all make my Rosacea so much worse. I really dread winter for that very reason, but this system is so very helpful. I also use the Skin Recovery Treatment Mask over top of the Skin Recovery SPF 15 when I need to go outside or when I feel a flare up coming on. FYI... In summer I use the Hydralight System since it is warm and humid where I live and I don't require all that moisturizer. It has taken significant experimentation to find the right products for me, but these two system's seem to work the best for me. Very happy with the results.

    Great for sensitive skin
    • I have been using this system for about two weeks and am completely satisfied with it so far. I have very sensitive skin that is prone to breakouts, with redness and overall dryness. I began using this system at the same time I gave up prescription Atralin (tretinoin), so I was worried about breaking out. But the products are so gentle; no burning at all. At the same time, they seem to be very effective, as my skin is already less dry and has a more even skin tone. The cleanser works well; removes makeup. The toner is gentle and refreshing. The BHA lotion has a nice cucumber scent and feels very smooth like a primer. The AM and PM moisturizers are both great as well. I'm looking forward to trying other Paula's Choice products because so far, I am very impressed!

    not for my skin
    • Unfortunately this just didn't work for me. Over the past few weeks, my skin has only become drier and more irritated, even when I don't use the BHA in the kit. I felt like I was constantly having to add moisturizer to my face. By the end of the day, I had little bumps all over and definitely dried out. Customer Care Response: Thank you for your comments. We will be sure to share your feedback with Paula and her Product Development Manager. They do take customer feedback seriously.

    Amazingly fast results!
    • I received my product less than one week ago. The day after I used it for the first time, the girls at work thought I had new makeup! My skin looked soo good and my makeup went on so much better, that they could not believe it was the skin care and not new makeup. The Redness Relief is a miracle! Both my daughter and I had ugly blemishes from our monthly visitor. We dabbed a bit on and within 12 hours, they had shrunk, and on their way to becoming nothing but a small spot! Better than proactive blemish cream!!! I will never go back to the expensive, less effective products that I was using. I am now anxiously awaiting my new foundation. Yay me!! Customer Care Response: Thank you for such a glowing review! We are glad to hear you are happy with your products!

    Amazing Results in Just 2 Days!!
    • My husband has advanced Sjogrens. This disease causes skin lesions and with him on a imunosuppressant they can take up to a month or more to heal. Customer Service Rocks!! I explained the situation to them & received the samples. Within TWO DAYS of using the samples his lesions have already started to heal!He was one of those guys who didn't feel it necessary to have a skin regimen. It took months to convince him, just baby steps. Its changed his whole attitude & mental state (with the disease comes dementia).I love you guys, thank you isn't even close to adequate. God bless you Paula & all your wonderful staff!

    Life Saving!
    • I have moderate rosacea and after using this kit, for the first time in many years, I am able to be red free! This has reduced my redness sooo much! I'll be honest and I thought I would shop around rather than re-order, but I'm not willing to go back to how my face used to me or again have the itching on my face or the painful cysts! Can't recommend enough and I tried everything out there for rosacea except prescrition medicine!

Skin Recovery Softening Cream Cleanser:

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. Otherwise, this cleanser effectively removes most types of makeup. If you feel you need an a separate makeup remover, Paula's Choice Gentle Touch Makeup Remover is ideal.

How does Skin Recovery Softening Cream Cleanser differ from the other Paula's Choice Cleansers-how do I know which one is best for me?

Paula's Choice Skin Recovery Softening Cream Cleanser is slightly more emollient than Moisture Boost One Step Face Cleanser for Normal to Dry Skin, which makes it preferred for someone with dry to very dry skin. It is also more emollient than Resist Optimal Results Hydrating Cleanser, though both the Resist and Skin Recovery Cleanser are great for dry skin of any age.

I have normal to dry skin on my cheeks but my T-zone is oily - would Skin Recovery Softening Cream Cleanser work for me?

While it is an option, your best bet would be to try Moisture Boost One Step Face Cleansers for Normal to Dry Skin first. If you prefer a gel cleanser, consider Hydralight One Step Cleanser for Normal to Oily/Combination Skin.

I have normal to dry skin that gets noticeably drier in the winter - would Skin Recovery Softening Cream Cleanser be a good seasonal choice?

Yes! This would be a very good choice for normal to dry skin during the winter months.

Will this cleanser make me break out?

This cleanser is extremely unlikely to cause blemishes. However, normal to oily and blemish-prone skins will likely find this cleanser too emollient for their skin type.

Skin Recovery Enriched Calming Toner:

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. When properly formulated, they soothe skin and provide an extra dose of antioxidants and repairing ingredients.

What are the main differences between the five Paula's Choice toners?

Every Paula's Choice toner repairs skin, provides antioxidants, delivers anti-aging ingredients, and helps remove last traces of makeup. They do not contain alcohol, fragrance, or unnecessary irritants such as menthol, peppermint, and citrus oils. Below you'll find a brief description for each distinct toner.

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.

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.

Moisture Boost Essential Hydrating Toner contains a broad range of ingredients that aid skin's barrier repair process so those with normal to dry skin will receive even more benefit from their Paula's Choice moisturizer and/or treatment product. Moisture Boost Essential Hydrating Toner feels lighter than our Skin Recovery Enriched Calming Toner.

Skin Recovery Enriched Calming Toner for normal to very dry skin is for those who need more help protecting their skin from environmental damage, redness, or dryness. Skin Recovery Enriched Calming Toner has a rich, milky liquid texture and contains more plant oils and other emollients for intense hydration. Excellent for rosacea!

Skin Balancing Pore-Reducing Toner for normal to oily/combination skin is excellent to help normalize skin and reduce signs of extreme combination skin (oily and dry areas). Its cell-communicating ingredients help balance skin and reduce enlarged pores.

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.

Skin Perfecting 1% BHA Lotion Exfoliant:

What's the difference between AHA and BHA exfoliants? Do I need both?

When properly formulated, both AHAs and BHA are brilliant options for exfoliating the surface of skin. Both AHA and BHA work to reduce wrinkles, stimulate collagen, and firm skin but each has its special qualities you'll want to consider when deciding which one to use:

  • AHAs are preferred for sun-damaged and dry skin because they exfoliate on the surface of skin and have the added benefit of also improving moisture content. 
  •  BHA is preferred for oily, acne-prone skin and for treating blackheads and white bumps because BHA can get through the oil that's clogging your pores, normalizing the lining of the misshapen pore that contributes to acne.
  • BHA has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial action. Those are two more reasons to use a BHA exfoliant if you have acne or sensitive, reddened skin.
  • BHA is preferred for those struggling with rosacea. Not everyone with rosacea can tolerate an exfoliant, but it is wise to experiment with a BHA product to see how your rosacea responds.

If your skin is sun-damaged and you're also struggling with acne or clogged pores, add a BHA product to your routine.

If you'd like to use an AHA and BHA at the same time, that is an option, though not really necessary. Some people find they work well when they're applied at the same time, but if you want to give this a try it is best to apply them separately, one during the day and one in the evening.

How do I use an AHA or BHA exfoliant?

  • You can apply an AHA or BHA product once or twice a day.
  • You can also apply either of these around the eye area but not on the eyelid or directly under the eye.
  • Apply the AHA or BHA product after your face is cleansed and after your toner has dried.
  • Once the AHA or BHA has been absorbed, you can apply any other product in your routine, such as moisturizer, serum, eye cream, sunscreen, and/or foundation.
  • If you're using a topical prescription product such as Renova, other retinoids, or any of the topical prescription products for rosacea, apply the BHA or AHA first.

Your AHA (glycolic acid) products have a higher percentage than your BHA (salicylic acid) products. Does this mean AHA is a stronger exfoliant?

AHA products are most effective at a 5% to 10% concentration and BHA at 1% to 2% concentration. Think about it like making bread, the amount of yeast you need is tiny in comparison to the amount of flour you use but equally important to get the results you want. The percentage of effectiveness varies depending on the ingredient. Rest assured that the BHA products are not any less effective due to lower concentrations of the exfoliant.

What strength of BHA should I use? Will a higher concentration provide better and faster results?

Which BHA strength you opt to use should be based on your skin type and the stubbornness (or severity) of your acne, white bumps, or blackheads. The 1% BHA strength is a great starting point to see how using a pH-correct BHA can improve the skin's condition. The 2% concentrations can be something you step up to if and when the need arises or if your skin isn't responding well enough to the 1% concentration.

At what point after my laser and/or peel procedure can I begin using my BHA exfoliant again?

First, we urge you to follow the post-procedure instructions your doctor or nurse provided. If nothing was mentioned about when to resume use of a BHA exfoliant, please contact the doctor's office where you had the procedure done. Otherwise, our general advice is to begin using your BHA again as soon as possible. Or, if your skin seems extra-sensitive, you may want to wait and apply the BHA exfoliant a few days post-procedure. Salicylic acid is an excellent anti-inflammatory ingredient that can enhance skin's natural healing process as it works to reduce post-procedure redness.

Skin Recovery Daily Moisturizing Lotion SPF 30:

Should I reapply Skin Recovery Daily Moisturizing Lotion SPF 30 during the day?

For casual wear, meaning less than two hours total time out in the sun, it is not necessary to reapply sunscreen as you will be protected all day. If you are perspiring or just spending a longer period of time outdoors, it should be reapplied. You may also touch up your sun protection by applying a pressed powder with sunscreen, such as Paula's Choice Healthy Finish Pressed Powder SPF 15.

How is Skin Recovery Daily Moisturizing Lotion SPF 30 different from Moisture Boost Daily Restoring Complex SPF 30?

Although both products provide reliable broad-spectrum sun protection, they do so using completely different active ingredients. Skin Recovery Daily Moisturizing Lotion SPF 30 contains mineral actives (titanium dioxide and zinc oxide) while Moisture Boost Daily Restoring Complex SPF 30 contains synthetic active ingredients such as avobenzone. Because of this, Skin Recovery Daily Moisturizing Lotion SPF 30 is preferred for sensitive or rosacea-affected skin. The other notable difference is that Skin Recovery Daily Moisturizing Lotion with SPF 30 is a more sophisticated formula designed to be used as part of the comprehensive Skin Recovery routine. Moisture Boost Daily Restoring Complex SPF 30 is a very good daytime moisturizer for those seeking a simpler routine that covers the basics.

How is Skin Recovery Daily Moisturizing Lotion SPF 30 different from Resist Cellular Defense Daily Moisturizer SPF 25?

Although both products provide reliable broad-spectrum sun protection, Resist Cellular Defense Daily Moisturizer SPF 25 offers a greater amount of sun protection. The Resist formula contains titanium dioxide as its active ingredient while Skin Recovery Daily Moisturizing Lotion contains a blend of titanium dioxide and zinc oxide. Both formulas contain antioxidants to help defend skin against signs of aging, but each has its own blend. Texture-wise, these two daytime moisturizers with sunscreen are quite similar. Both provide hydration and a silky, radiant finish those with normal to dry skin will appreciate best. Resist Cellular Defense Daily Moisturizer SPF 25 leaves less of a sheen on skin when compared to Skin Recovery Daily Moisturizing Lotion SPF 30.

Skin Recovery Replenishing Moisturizer:

My skin is dry. Which moisturizer do you recommend?

Several Paula's Choice moisturizers would work well for you. Choosing the perfect moisturizer has a lot to do with personal preference and trying a product to determine which one works best on your skin. A good place to start, especially if signs of aging are a concern, is with our Resist Barrier Repair Moisturizer. If you want a richer texture, try our Moisture Boost Hydrating Treatment Cream or Skin Recovery Replenishing Moisturizer. It is also helpful to use our Resist Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum or Skin Recovery Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum in combination with (on top of or underneath) any moisturizer you apply. You may also wish to treat your dry skin to frequent applications of our Skin Recovery Hydrating Treatment Mask.

I have very dry skin. Which moisturizer should I use?

Skin Recovery Replenishing Moisturizer is designed for dry to very dry skin. For maximum benefits, apply Skin Recovery Enriched Calming Toner before every application of Skin Recovery Replenishing Moisturizer.
