Skincare Tips from Redditors Who Really Know Their Stuff

Skincare Tips from Redditors Who Really Know Their Stuff

Reddit.com brings the skincare savvy together to dish about tips, tricks, and product recommendations, and we’re happy to see fans of Paula’s Choice Skincare leading the way. In fact, we’ve even been known to pick up a new tip or two from Redditors. With that in mind, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite advice straight from Reddit’s oh-so-popular SkincareAddiction forum.

Racoon eyes?

User “kajlsdfkjasfdakds” recommends our SHINE STOPPER: “I use this daily under my eyes to stop my mascara from smudging. It's literally a magic oil absorbing sponge IMO.”

Stubborn imperfections?

Do what “JoanOfSarcasm” does: “Mix 3 drops C15 with 1 squirt of BHA 9. Apply all over trouble areas (forehead, below cheekbones, jaw).”

Want to get the most out of your 2% BHA Liquid?

Try “nerdscallmegeek’s” tip: “A little goes a long way. I use maybe two or three drops on my palm and rub it in all over my face. It's better to just use your hands instead of a cotton ball so you don't use too much of it.”

Thinking about high-strength retinol?

Check out “OddnessWeirdness’” advice for our CLINICAL 1% Retinol Treatment: “That stuff changed my life. I tried to stop using it for a while and my skin was not having it. Make sure to start slowly with it because it’s strong.”

Dry, cracked lips?

We love “gaseum’s” advice: “Anything with mint or other “cooling” ingredients is doing more damage than good. Read this article, and try Paula's Choice LIP & BODY Treatment Balm.”

On the fence about toners?

See why “Sessun” loves our SKIN BALANCING Pore Reducing Toner: “I was a little reluctant at first, but I have never used a better toner. It adds some moisture, and I like the feeling of my skin after letting the toner dry. If you are curious about niacinamide, I’d say you should give this one a try.”

Need SPF for an active lifestyle?

“T0ast1nsanity” suggests: “The EXTRA CARE Non-Greasy SPF 50. It doesn't break me out, stays on well, and seems to work very well when I go surfing or hiking.”

Still confused about which Paula’s Choice product to get?

Take it from “ichigogo”: “They have an amazing customer service team!! Seriously. If you have any questions or concerns, or want to return an item just call or use their chat.”
