@grammarqueen 

YEP!  I received my email, too!  She has been having some great sales already during these past 3 months & I literally have everything I need.  However, I will take advantage of her daily deals if it includes some of my favorite core products.

 

Geesh...June...between Paula's Choice & WEN, I'll be raking up a bunch of airline miles on my United card...HA!

@grammarqueen  and  @SurferWife What do you use and like in her line?  I have used the RESIST serum and like it alot.  I would like to try something with retinol in it.  Can you suggest something that you are happy with?

 

TIA

I absolutely love this line.  I've used only her skincare products for the past decade and couldn't be more pleased.  I appreciate how her line is no frills, but about an exceptional product.  I'm fairly well stocked.  However, I can always use more sunscreen and moisturizer.

Re: Paula's Choice 25th Anniversary

I love Paula's Choice skincare.  I use the Skin Recovery replenishing moisturizer, softening cream cleanser, and toner.  I also use the Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Lotion Exfoliant.

 

My skin is dry and very sensitive, I'm allergic to everything except these products.  So glad I found them, thanks to a recommendation on these boards about 4 years ago.

 

Check out their website, they have lots of reviews for all of their products so you can get more information.

Re: Paula's Choice 25th Anniversary

Tends2dogs: On the Paula’s Choice homepage, you can take a quiz to find out what works best for your skin. I am partial to the Resist line because I’m in my mid-60’s, but because I have rosacea, I use the Calm BHA 1% exfoliant lotion and switched to the Calm for dry skin SPF, because it’s straight mineral sunscreen. A few years back they reformulated the Resist sunscreen, which was also mineral, and put chemical sunscreens in it, much to many of our dismay.

@Tends2dogs 

I use the Resist line for dry skin.  I do love her Retinol, too.  I've always used the 1% but she now has a new one, so I've been using it the last few week & love it, too!  It's gentle but she does recommend starting off every 2-3 nights & work up to every night if you don't experience any sensitivity.

 

Also, I love her booster serums.  My favorites are the Vitam C, Hyaluronic Acid, Moisture Renewal Serum (super duper if you're dry!), peptide booster. The 1% retinol booster is good too.  You can alternate that with the Retinol. The boosters are good mixed with your moisturizer.

 

She has a quiz you can take to determine which booster(s) are best for you.

 

The only product I don't use is the cleansers, because I use WEN, BUT they still get a lot of great reviews.

 

Start off with the smaller sizes until you find your favorites then buy the larger ones.

 

Enjoy!

Re: Paula's Choice 25th Anniversary

Sorry to keep bothering you, @SurferWife .  I went to Paula's site and she has a retinol 1% and a retinol .3% with Bakuchiol.  Which one do you prefer?  She has a duo with the l% retinol that comes with C15/peptide booster.  I kinda have my eye on that one for start.........Woman LOL...

No bother at all!  I've always used the 1% Retinol.  The newer one is Retinol .3% with Bakuchiol.  I've just started using it & so far I really like it.  However if you can get a duo of the 1% Retinol with the C15/peptide booster, I'd go for that one, for sure!  I might get that one, too!

Re: Paula's Choice 25th Anniversary

Ok, @SurferWife  and @grammarqueen  and the rest of you Paula lovers, I took the plunge and ordered the 1% Retinol with the C15 peptide booster duo.  I also bought the sample size of the AHA and the Resist antioxident serum.  I already use the serum, but for $6.80 for the sample in a tube, I am shocked how much is in that and how long it lasts.  Also, there were many complaints about the new packaging.  In a tube, you can always cut the end off and get every precious drop. 

 

Also, Top Cash had 3% rebate.......better than nothing.  Now I am waiting for my products to be delivered!

 

What all did you gals order??
