Product / Review Excerpt Rating
Paula's Choice 1% BHA lotion
I tried an AHA exfoliant from a different company and it left a burn on my face (like a chemical rash along my jawline-lovely). I switched to scrubs for awhile, but returned to using lotion exfoliants since the 1% BHA exfoliant from PC is a lot less abrasive, I use it about every other day and I've never had any irritation... full text >>
Paula's Choice 2% Beta Hydroxy Acid Solution
The above product gently exfoliates the skin and unclogs pores without leaving a greasy feeling on your skin. It helped me a lot with my blemishes and blackheads. I use it once every two days, at night. It does irritate the skin a bit, you will have a slight tingling sensation, but it will go away in a few days and you will be left with a smooth and clean skin... full text >>

Paula's Choice 8% Alpha Hydroxy Solution
Best Alpha Hydroxy product I have ever found! After 4 weeks, my skin has a nice healthy glow, smaller pores and my fine lines don't seem as obvious. The solution has 8% AHA, and has a ph of 3.5. Most people don't realize that the ph is as important ..... full text >>
Paula's choice beta hydroxy acid liquid
I was amazed and transformed into a positive and confidant woman who could go without make up (my constant companion, my foundation) within a week of using this product. At first I was pesimistic having been let down by many claims of many products that I had tried previously which eventually led to side effects like clogged pores... full text >>
Paula's Choice 2% BHA Liquid Solution
I have used Paula's Choice 2% BHA liquid for 3 years, and have had the clearest and most healthy skin I have ever experienced.

Paula's Choice 2% beta hydroxy acid lotion

Paula's Choice Remarkable Skin Lightening Lotion

Paula's Choice RESIST Weekly Resurfacing Treatment with 10% AHA
As a bit of a skin care nut, I've long been aware of the benefits of exfoliation and I consider it to be one of the most immediate and effective ways to improve skin's appearance. Unfortunately, I'm clog-prone and products like Alpha Hydrox's 10% Enhanced Lotion (which is a great AHA for the body) break me out facially... full text >>

Paula's Choice Skin Balancing Daily Mattifying Lotion SPF 15
I am very satisfied with this Paula's Choice moisturizer and I recommended it for anyone looking for a lightweight, non-oily, daily moisturizer.

I have very dry skin and read Paula Begoun's reviews with interest, so I decided to try her line of products for dry and very dry skin.
