Comments about SKIN RECOVERY Essential Kit - Essential Kit:

Wow, this kit is really incredible. I have never used anything that gave such rapid, positive results. My skin texture improved literally after 3 days. I have sensitive skin, so the BHA liquid is a little bit stingy on my skin, but really a small trade off for the results I've experienced. Also, the daily SPF moisturizer is very hydrating, but looks a little greasy. I am a fan of the glowing skin look, so not a big deal for me. Wow, again, a really great kit. Really turned my skin around.

Comments about SKIN RECOVERY Essential Kit - Essential Kit:

I purchased this about a month ago. The results are excellent. I have dry skin, with large pores and some acne scars. My skin is softer, my pores seem under control and even my old acne scars are lighter. I don't have deep wrinkles, but I see improvement in the thin lines around my lips and on my forehead. I definitely recommend this a starter kit, and I'm now planning on trying more products from Paula's Choice. If I had to pick a favorite product from the kit, I would have to say the AHA exfoliator. I never liked using acid or peel, but this one is very gentle, doesn't make me itchy or cracked, and it yields serious results.

    Comments about SKIN RECOVERY Essential Kit - Essential Kit:

    I have only been using this system for 5 days so far, but thus far I am impressed. I had not ventured from my go-to Cerave products in years (as they were the first skin care products to get rid of my under-the-skin forehead bumps) and it is often best not to mess with a good thing.

    However, with such dry skin, their lotions were not moisturizing enough and I began looking for alternatives. I have very sensitive skin though, so I am hesitant to try anything new. I went with Paula's choice because of the science behind it and so far it has been working well. My comments so far:

    1. The facial cleanser is good and comparable to the Cerave hydrating cleanser - both are lotion-like and non-foaming. My face does not feel tight or dry after cleansing which is a great sign. It seems to remove my tinted sunscreen well.
    5 out of 5

    2. Skin Recovery Toner (I bought this in addition to the kit): This does not sting and helps remove the tinted sunscreen on my neck (as I don't cleanse it). I haven't noticed it feeling super hydrating, but it is definitely not drying and from what I understand toner may just be helping my existing moisture from escaping.
    5 out of 5

    3. AHA 8% Gel
    I only use this at night and this stuff burns. So much so I skipped it on the second night to give myself a break. However, over the past few nights, the burning sensation seems to be lessening and lasting a shorter time, although my cheeks do get a bit red. Aside from the uncomfortable sensation initially, it does eventually go away and I have not noticed any lasting irritation. I'm not sure if it is helping, but it doesn't seem to be hurting.
    3.5 out of 5

    4. Nighttime moisturizing lotion
    This is exactly what Cerave didn't have, an incredibly moisturizing lotion for bedtime. I really like how it feels & my skin definitely seems to be improving. My only qualm is that it smells a little funny. Oh well!
    5 out of 5

    5. Daytime SPF moisturizing lotion
    This is the only product in the kit that smells good - kind of like cucumbers. Everything else tends towards the bad smell spectrum. It is much easier to spread than the Cerave AM facial lotion which I like. It feels light, but seems to be moisturizing. It leaves a white cast (as most physical sunscreens do) so I top it off with Cotz's tinted sunscreen for extra protection and a bit of color. It is my version of foundation :).
    5 out of 5

    I also bought a trial version of the vitamin c and put a few drops on after toner and before the spf lotion in the morning - who knows if it is doing anything but it doesn't burn which is nice!

    All in all I am very happy with my purchase and will continue the routine.

    Comments about SKIN RECOVERY Essential Kit - Essential Kit:

    I noticed an immediate change in skin texture and moisture, my skin was recovering from the winter months and i desperately needed it. These products have lasted me the last five months, the only product i have run out of is the night cream because i would use it during the day sometimes. Also after 5 months i have noticed a significant change in my skin tone, it is much brighter and my freckles which became heavy in the beginning of summer due to lack of sunscreen (my bad) have almost vanished. However, since i bought this right before summer started, it did nothing for the oily parts of my skin. I noticed no difference in the size of my pores and i broke out a tad more than usual. I think i may have not realized that my skin was more combination then dry so, in retrospect, I really wish I had opted for a skin kit that included a BHA product.

    I would also like to mention to those who start out by saying they used these products religiously, and then complain about irritation after a while (not after first use), PLEASE listen to your skin, In my opinion, if your skin is getting more dry, skip the AHA, use the night cream during the day, if it feels normal, use this line as you normally would. I have skin that is iffy to- for two weeks i used the aha day and night and it was fine, the following week i couldn't use it at all, but as my skin became regularly moisturized i continued using it once a day no problem, and had really great results.

      Comments about SKIN RECOVERY Essential Kit - Essential Kit:

      I live in Colorado and it is permanently dry here. I also have sensitive skin, so other anti-aging products that I have tried (not from Paula's Choice line) always seem to irritate my skin and make me break out as well as burn.

      These products are fantastic! I've received compliments on how soft and smooth my skin looks, and have even stopped wearing foundation on a regular basis because my skin was consistently clear and behaving.

      There wasn't a break-in period for my face with I've had with other products. I started using the kit right away and absolutely love it!

      Comments about SKIN RECOVERY Essential Kit - Essential Kit:

      My rosacea was acting up and dry skin was flaking and face was hurting. Tried everything in my arsenal. Broke out this kit and used exclusively for a week. What a difference this made in my skin. Soothed my skin and helped the dryness. My rosacea was also helped. I am not saying my rosacea was cured--will not do that--but certainly helped it. Now that that crisis time is over whenever my skin is acting up I get this kit out and use it.
