Ratings & Reviews

The best skincare I have ever used


I've tried so many different skincare brands I can't even list them all, but they include Prevage, Estee Lauder, Clarins, and so on, with price being no object in my search for great skincare. About 7 years ago I discovered the Resist line and was amazed by just how great my skin looked. Four years ago we moved and because there was a major health issue in our family I ended up just grabbing Olay products at the supermarket (though not without consulting Beautipedia first). And this year, after laser treatments on my face, I let myself be talked into buying the Zo Obagi Medical line, which is heart-stoppingly expensive. Again, I wouldn't have objected had it been great skincare, but it made my skin sore, itchy and desert-dry. At $1,000.00 for a three-month supply, that's a big, resounding OUCH! I bought a few Paul's Choice products a couple of months ago, and once again my skin feels great. I'll never switch again. Please, please, never take this line off your roster. It's the Holy Grail of skincare.

I will definitely buy this set again.


Within two weeks of using these products, I had absolutely no skin concerns at all. My main concern was minor breakouts around my lips, and this disappeared. I like that these products are virtually odorless, so they don't clash with perfume or other scents I use. Instead of using the labels supplied with the kit, I just marked the tops of the containers with indelible marker, with the step number and AM or PM. The font size on the labels is hard to read for those of us with oldster vision. It would also be helpful if the containers had an indicator window so you could see how much product is left so you could reorder before you ran out. The Pore Refining Treatment container has this, but the other containers do not.

absolutely the best!


The moisturizer is the best part of the whole kit! It does take a while to sink in but when it does it feels wonderful. The cleanser is so moisturizing I will never be without. Im allergic to all moisturizers in general and this moisturizer from resist works maybe because it's a mineral spf 25. Has never broken me out! If this is discontinued I will forever be screwed. Please excuse my language.

Good solid starter set.


I ordered this kit 6 months ago and it has been a great intro to Paula's Choice. The cleanser is milky, no suds. I use it when my skin is feeling dry or extra sensitive. After a workout or if I am breaking out, I switch to a stronger cleanser. I will buy again--I really like it but I need to alternate it with stronger formulas. The toner is slightly humectant, it is not stripping or drying but almost feels moisturizing. Great for winter or dry skin. If you are looking to feel tight or squeaky clean, this won't do it. The AHA glycolic acid products are good. Not irritating. I will not by the 5% lotion again as I can tolerate the "weekly" 10% liquid formula just fine every few days; I will buy the 10% only next time. Side note, these products have done wonders for my dry cracked winter hands! (For what it's worth I ordered the BHA 2% a few weeks ago and it's a great addition to my routine. I alternate these products based on what I think my skin needs.) The antioxidant serum is thick and has a sort of silicone feel. It doesn't stay thick and heavy--it does sink in--but it goes on heavy. Not my favorite. I have since bought the ultra light serum and I really like it! The ultra light will definitely be great for summer and better for humid climates, while the "super" included in this kit seems better suited for dry skin/climates or winter time. The sunscreen is not my favorite. No issues with it and I will get through the tube but I will not buy again. Too much white cast if I use enough product to feel like it's actually going to cover me with the SPF. The retinol moisture barrier repair is a fine moisturizer. For night time, I wish it was heavier. It is very light. I will easily get through this tube, but will not buy this one again. Overall, it was a great purchase to buy the whole kit and I was glad to have all the steps in the routine to better learn how to layer products. Highly recommend.

Anti-Aging and Sun Damage Repair


By far the best products and product line I've ever used in my 50 yrs. Late start on trying to repair the effects of the sun on my face but this product line is showing great improvement in just 3 weeks. My skin immediately felt and looked better, pampered, well-treated. I'm recommending to everyone I know!

Just great!


Don't know why her products are amazing for me but its calmed my cystic acne skin. Leaves it so smooth. I have used every line imaginable and this leaves my skin feeling 10-15 years younger. Just wish I knew the secret? It's driving me crazy but oh well it works.




Outstanding products, excellent results


In my youth, and out of ignorance, I severely damaged my skin by baking in the sun. As a result I have spent the past 15 years trying to remedy/remediate the damage and address the natural aging process. I've spent thousands on laser (picosure,medlite,ipl)dermabrasion, peels,botox, restylane, Rx retina A. I've used Skinceutical products as well as Obaji, sparing no expense on my quest for decent skin. From drug store brands to the priciest dept store brands, I've tried them all. I now use only Paula's Choice Resist products as directed, as well as 1% PC retinol. My skin looks great. I'm a discriminating shopper and always do my homework when using products. PC is my holy grail for the best skin care products, bar none. I rely on reviews when buying products, so I decided to take the time to "pay it forward" with my own experiences with Paula's products. Simply put, there is nothing better out there...






I heard about Paula's Choice on the internet and decided to try her products. I must say her products work. I have spent lots of money on expensive skincare lines and did not get the results I wanted. After one week of using Paula's Choice I noticed how good my skin is looking. Very happy and will continue to use her products. Would recommend highly.

Best skincare I have ever used!


I have used many products during my 67 years. So far this is the best ever. It is easily applied and absorbes quickly. I use as directed in a.m. and p. m. Even though there are several products, they go on quickly and easily. My skin is very good, thanks to good genes. Paula's Choice has kept it great and making it even better with continued and regular application.

Daily regimine


I love these products! It has definitely made an impact on my skin's texture and the overall feel is excellent. The only thing that I don't particularly like is the Cellular Defense Daily Moisturizer with SPF 25 & Antioxidants. That product leaves a tacky feel on my face and my make up does not look well while in use.
