I have been impatiently waiting for fall to show up. Fall has teased us here with cool mornings and evenings but mid day it still reaches over 80. I tend to switch up my skin care a bit with the changing seasons, so I felt like it was a good time to do an update on one of the brands I spoke about earlier this year. In late spring I completely overhauled my skin care routine and went on a regime of all Paula’s Choice products. you can check out that post here.
I followed the Paula’s Choice routine outlined in that post for several weeks. Being that I am obsssed with skin care products I am always trying new things, and I eventually moved on to something else. One of the good things about trying so many products is that I build up a nice list of go-to’s. Go to’s for me are products that I tend to repurchase after trying and rotate into my routine when I am not testing other things.
Overall I had a great experience with the Paula’s Choice routine I was on, and there were a few products that definitely earned a spot on my go to list.
Out of the products I tried there were four standout favorites;
1. Resist Perfectly Balanced Foaming Cleanser – I finished this cleanser. Don’t judge me but I even put a little water in the bottle to get the last bits out when the pump wouldn’t reach the bottom. My skin reacted very well to this cleanser, it kept it balanced and controlled oil. Will I repurchase, yes.
2. Resist Weightless Advanced Repairing Toner – For a long time I had stopped using a toner and this one got me back on track. This toner I used only in the am, it regulate my skin and was not drying. I am very picky about toner, probably the reason I hadn’t been regularly using one. I have countless toner’s that I start but never finish. I may have finally found the perfect one for my skin. I completely used this one up and will repurchase.
3. Daily Pore Refining Treatment – Improving my skins texture was a big focus for me this year. I had slacked with exfoliation and my face had some rough spots, congestion and large clogged visible pores on the cheeks. After a few weeks of using this treatment in the evening I started to notice my skin was smoother and I had less blackheads. The 2% BHA was just right for my skin to see results without being harsh. I’m definitely pleased with this. I only use this treatment in the evening and I was legit sad when I finished the bottle. Absolute repurchase item, this will most likely be my staple evening tone/treatment.
4. Ultra Light Antioxidant Concentrate Serum – This serum oil hybrid was my favorite product from my Paula’s Choice routine. This serum gave my skin a nice glow, and it plays wells with whatever other products I’m using. I have combination oily skin and this serum doe not leave me with a greasy feeling. When first dispensed it has nice slip with a slight tacky feel but it absorbs completely. Even on days I don’t wear makeup this serum leave he skin with a nice healthy glow, but it also wears nice under makeup. You only need a small amount of product and since I only use this in the morning I’ve hardly made a dent in the tube I have. I expect this tube to last me several more months. This is another definite repurchase.
