Paula’s Choice💦 moisturizing skin products are a skin lovers Best Friend💙
Paula’s Choice skin moisturizing products have quickly become some of our most reached for products lately. The science-backed, ingredient forward and skin-inclusive brand has made skin cells from all walks of life very happy. The Hyaluronic Acid Booster and Skin Recovery Enriched Calming Toner are two popular hydrating products loved by many. Let’s face it, the past couple years have been stressful for everyone. Stress can manifest in various forms including on your skin! Now that the sunny season is in full swing, beauties want to show off their skin more than ever. And who better to help our complexion than the trusty skin loving beauty brand Paula’s Choice.

Founded by Paula Begoun in 1995, the Seattle based company’s goal was to create effective skincare using transparent ingredients that suited all skin types and skin concerns. Paula’s Choice products are made with non-irritating ingredients that are conveniently listed in a mini beauty encyclopedia on their website along with the function of each ingredient. Did we also mention Paula’s Choice uses only “clean” ingredients? We love clean skincare! 

The Paula’s Choice Hyaluronic Acid Booster is a concentrated serum with a lightweight gel-like texture. It helps replenish skin barrier moisture, revive dehydrated and dull skin as well as visibly improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This booster can be used alone or added to other products to boost its hydration benefits. Some of its key skin loving ingredients include ceramides, pro-vitamin B5 and of course everyone’s skin care bestie, hyaluronic acid. 

Hyaluronic acid can help with sensitivity, dullness, uneven skin tone and texture. Did you know that 1gm of hyaluronic acid can hold up to 6L of water? Talk about doing all the heavy lifting! As a star ingredient in this booster serum, this product was named one of Elle UK’s Best Hyaluronic Acid serum for smooth, plump and hydrated skin. Despite its rave reviews, some beauties say it does take some time to see significant results and improvements in the skin, other than the temporary plumpness upon immediate application. The product comes in various sizes and retails anywhere from $16 to $37.

The Skin Recovery Enriched Calming Toner is a hydrating toner that soothes, revitalizes and nourishes irritated and dry skin. The creamy white texture works great for calming redness and irritation on sensitive skin beauties. It is formulated with antioxidants, ceramides, niacinamide and other skin loving factors to help fight off against everyday environmental aggressors. Powerful yet lightweight, this hydrating toner helps rebuild compromised and stressed-out skin barriers. The calming toner was named by as the Best Overall Pick for sensitive skin and retails for $22.

Curious about this brand and these products, Glowish influencer Megan puts these two moisturizing products to the test. As someone with normal skin, she isn’t sure what to expect from the serum and toner. However, upon first application, she is able to notice visible plumpness and hydration to her skin and is excited to continue its use in hopes of seeing great results. After consistent use during her two-week trial period, the influencer noticed some fading of her acne scarring on her cheeks as well as the elimination of a few “sweat bumps/clogged pores” she usually has in the middle of her forehead. Her skin felt clean and soft. Overall, she found the products to be effective in their claims. However, she did not see a significant enough result to want to personally repurchase either of the two products.

Are you facing dehydrated, irritated, barrier compromised and stressed-out skin? It might be worth checking out these two from Paula’s Choice. Your skin will thank you.
