Paula’s Choice Giveaway and Paula’s Choice Coupon Code

skin care | 28 comments

Have you ever heard of Paula’s Choice Skin Care?

I had been hearing about it from my aunt for years until I finally tried it a couple of years ago. I had a lot going on in my personal life and my skin was not happy about it! My skin looked tired, dull, and suddenly I was dealing with some adult acne – something I was really unhappy about.

I was telling my aunt about all of this and she told me it was time to try Paula’s Choice. I was a little skeptical because I didn’t know anyone else who used these products. but when she told me about their amazing return policy I figured that I had nothing to lose.

Paula's Choice Giveaway and Paula's Choice Coupon Code

Honestly, I wish I had trusted her a long time on this. She’s been using Paula’s Choice for at least 20 years and I only hope my skin looks as good as her’s when I am her age. People have thought we are sisters, not aunt and niece, when we are together!

I spent a couple of months trying a lot of different things to figure out what I liked and what my skin needed. I returned and was refunded, without any difficulty, anything that didn’t work for me. My skin looks and feels so much better now. And I don’t mind going in public without makeup on.

There are tons of products that I love so I thought it would be easiest to share my Paula’s Choice morning and night routine with you.

Morning Skin Care

FACE:

  • Hydralight Cleanser
  • Hydralight Toner
  • 1% BHA Lotion
  • Resist Ultra-Light Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum
  • Clear Ultra-Light Daily Fluid SPF 30+
In the past using sunscreen on my face daily would clog my pores and cause breakouts, so it was great to find a daily SPF that is formulated for face and doesn’t cause acne.

BODY:

  • Resist Weightless 2% BHA Body Treatment

I get those little bumps, which I learned is keratosis pilaris – the buildup of keratin, a hard protein that protects skin from infection and harmful external substances. The keratina plug that blocks the opening of the hair follicle, resulting in patches of bumpy skin. This body treatment gets rid of that and makes my legs soft and smooth.

Night Time Skin Care

  • Hydralight Cleanser
  • Gentle Touch Makeup Remover
  • Hydralight Toner
  • 1% BHA Lotion*
  • Resist Ultra-Light Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum
  • Resist C15 Super Booster (mix with serum)
  • Hydralight Lotion

*Once a week at night I use one of two different weekly treatments (such as one on Monday and another on Thursday): Resist Weekly Retexturizing Foam 4% BHA or Resist Weekly Resurfacing Treatment 10% AHA. The 4% BHA really unclogs my pores and the 10% AHA makes my skin bright and even.

That might sound like a lot but it only takes a couple of minutes and I’ve been really pleased with the results. I honestly cannot tell you how great these products are. Naturally, I wanted to share my favorite products with my readers and offer you a $200 gift card giveaway AND a great discount!
