      Comments about Paula's Choice Skin Balancing System, 1 set:

      I tried a sample of the skin perfecting 2% BHA in a beauty.com gift with purchase. I really liked how it worked and I saw great reviews for this kit so I went for it and bought it. Unfortunately, I don't really like any of the other products. One of them, the moisturizer with (chemical, not mineral)SPF, actually burned my face and I got a rash requiring medication/treatment. I'm not very sensitive to products but the minute I put it on, I felt a burn, followed by little bumps. The antioxidant serum is basically a blob of silicone and I don't like putting them on my face! I even notified Paula's Choice directly about the rash- not at all helpful. Did not even offer a sample of a titanium dioxide based spf moisturizer! Lesson learned, don't buy the whole kit.

        I love this system! It leaves my skin feeling glowy and clean. I have combination skin so I've only been using it at night to avoid drying out my face too much. Even that has made a difference in the look and texture of my skin.

          I brought this home for my wife. She was using another system and was reluctant at first to switch because her skin is so sensitive. For the first week she was a little red and splotchy, but then by week 2 her skin cleared up considerably and now she looks like she had a professional treatment. She loves the products in this kit and says she will continue to use them.

            I have never been a fan of cream-based facial cleansers, but this Paula's Choice cleanser in this pack really does effectively leave my skin feeling clean. Following that with the other included products, I always feel like my skin is at it's healthiest it's ever been. It took me a minute to remember the steps, (what goes on next) as I've been a "cleanser + moisturizer" person my whole life. But using this bundle is obviously a lot healthier for my skin, glad I found it. I will continue to use daily.
