For most of my life, I’ve been lucky to have good skin, especially considering I didn’t really start taking care of my skin until last year. I’ve always had normal skin with an oily t-zone and normal cleansers would do a good job at keeping my skin clear. Unfortunately, a few months ago I started experiencing some skin issues when my birth control prescription was switched on me. Among other things, I suddenly had very dry skin, bumps and a few breakouts. The products I was previously using were no longer enough for my skin and I needed something new. I was very excited to work with PRIMP and Paula’s Choice. After a quick consultation with a team member from Paula’s Choice, I was assessed with the Skin Recovery Advanced Kit for Dryness + Sun Damage. In about a week, I got my package in the mail in about a week and I was very excited to try it out!
My Current Skincare Routine with Paula’s Choice:
Skin Recovery Hydrating Treatment Mask ($21): This rich, moisturizing face mask combines plant oils and antioxidants in a creamy, emollient-packed formula to calm redness, repair dryness and instantly restore radiance.
Skin Perfecting 8% AHA Gel Exfoliant ($28): This lightweight AHA leave-on exfoliant smooths skin, fades sun damage and reveals younger-looking skin.
Skin Recovery Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum with Retinol ($32): This silky, moisturizing serum with retinol revitalizes dry, dehydrated skin so it can look younger, healthier, and more radiant.
Skin Recovery Replenishing Moisturizer ($28): This rich moisturizer returns radiance to dry, dull skin, while calming sensitivity.
Skin Recovery Daily Moisturizing Lotion SPF 30 ($28): This silky lotion keeps right on smoothing and calming sensitive skin. It shields your skin from wrinkles and brown spots as it coaxes youth-reviving repair.
Skin Recovery Enriched Calming Toner: This hydrating, milky toner is loaded with skin-protecting antioxidants and restorative ingredients that help to eliminate dry, flaky skin while soothing redness and sensitivity.
Skin Recovery Softening Cream Cleanser ($17): This rich, hydrating cream cleanser softens and soothes dry skin while gently removing dirt and makeup.
Resist BHA 9 ($42): This concentrated salicylic acid spot treatment tackles the most stubborn imperfections for dramatic results without irritation.
Resist Anti-Aging Eye Cream ($32): An exceptionally rich formula targets wrinkles and loss of firmness around the eyes. Helps skin retain moisture and boosts suppleness with long-lasting hydration that carries into the morning.
I’ve really been loving my new skincare routine using the Skin Recovery Kit for my dry skin! I’ve gotten used to setting a morning and nighttime routine because and I love that the pamphlet easily points out which products should be used in the AM, PM, and which ones are okay to use morning and night and as weekly treatments. They even include pre-made labels to put on your products to easily mark them. There are certain products, like the Softening Cream Cleanser, Calming Toner, Anti-Aging Eye Cream and Concentrate Serum that I use every single day, morning and night (those are my absolute favorites out of the kit) and other products that I only use at night, like the Skin Recovery Lotion and Skin Perfecting Gel. There are also products that I use weekly as treatments like the Skin Recovery Hydrating Mask (which I like to leave overnight) and the Resist Treatment Serum, which is great as a spot treatment. The routine is fully customizable according to what works best for you. There are days when I do the full routine and other days when I skip a few steps, depending on how my skin is feeling (and how much time I have). I’ve been using this skincare routine for a little over a month and already it’s made a big improvement in my skin. My skin has cleared up, my bumps have disappeared and my dry skin is almost back to normal. I have sensitive skin and don’t like products that have fragrance or unnecessary dyes or chemicals, especially since most products tend to irritate and burn my eyes. This is the first time I’ve used any Paula’s Choice products and I already have a wishlist of which products I want to purchase once I run out. I’m so happy that I got the chance to try these out and will be adding Paula’s Choice to my future skin care routine.
