© 2002-2012 Paula's Choice

Skin Recovery Softening Cream Cleanser: Splash the face and eyes generously with tepid to slightly warm water. Using your fingers, apply a quarter-sized amount on your face and eyes using vigorous but gentle circular motions. Rinse well and gently pat face dry with a clean towel.

Skin Recovery Enriched Calming Toner: Shake well. After cleansing, soak a large cotton ball or pad with Skin Recovery Enriched Calming Toner and gently stroke over the face. Do not rinse off. Follow with moisturizer and/or specialty product.

Skin Perfecting 8% AHA Gel Exfoliant: Apply a dime-sized amount to clean skin. Avoid direct contact with the eyes and eyelids. First-time users may experience a slight stinging sensation, which is normal. To avoid irritation, product should be used just once a day or once every other day for the first few weeks. After prolonged use (4–6 weeks), it can be applied twice per day. If redness, dryness, or irritation occurs, cut back the frequency of application or discontinue use.

Skin Recovery Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum: At night, smooth a few drops onto skin after cleansing, toning, and exfoliating. May be applied under or over moisturizer. For daytime, wear under a product with SPF 15 or greater. Works beautifully under makeup and is suitable for use around the eyes.

Skin Recovery Daily Moisturizing Lotion: SPF 15: Apply liberally before sun exposure. Do not apply any other skin-care product over sunscreen. You can apply foundation or pressed powder over sunscreens. For use on children under six months of age, consult a doctor.

Skin Recovery Moisturizer: Apply to cleansed skin. It works beautifully as an eye cream. For daytime, wear under a product rated SPF 15 or greater.

Skin Recovery Hydrating Treatment Mask: Use on cleansed skin. Apply a thick layer over dry areas or the entire face as often as needed. Leave on for at least 20 minutes or as long as desired. Rinse with tepid to warm water and follow with the appropriate Paula's Choice exfoliant, moisturizer, or specialty product. May be used around the eye area.

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

      I have fair, sensitive, aging skin - frankly the trifecta no one really wants. Some natural brands I have tried have caused breakouts, some non-natural brands have caused irritation. So its always been a mish-mash of stuff for me with not the greatest results.
      Enter Paula's Choice.
      The cleanser feels mild, but does its job well - no remaining makeup traces prior cleansers didn't *quite* get on the towel.
      During the day, I then go to the anti-oxident serum followed by the skin recovery lotion which has an SPF of 30 (!!) I would have thought my skin would feel greasy after all that - and trying to put makeup on would be a nightmare - but untrue.
      At night, again with the cleanser, followed by the toner (which feels really good and does not have an overpowering aroma as some do) followed by the AHA gel. Some nights I then use the skin recovery moisturizer, but an interesting thing I found was that using the skin recovery mask - as an overnight moisturizer gave me the softest, glowing skin by morning. It was seriously a revelation.
      I just did a glycolic peel - and used the Paula's Choice revovery mask as an overnight moisturizer and my skin looked amazing in the morning - no redness or irritation at all.
      I can't say enough good things about this line.

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

        I first heard of Paula's Choice by doing some research on the best skin care out there. The reviews on this product were the best for everything I was looking for. I had never heard of this brand before but thought I'd try it. I was amazed at the price, it is much lower than a lot of products that claim to do the same things; however this product has the anti aging, firming, anti oxidants, smoothing, moisturizing, SPF...etc. I've been using this system for about a month now and I can already tell a difference in my skin. I'm very happy to have found this product.

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

          This is hands down the best system I have ever used. I especially appreciate the ease of use of the Paula's choice products. I have always been unable to use retinols and exfoliators because they exacerbated my skin problems, until now. Severe dryness, mild flakiness, mild rosacea, red bumps and extreme sensitivity drove me to just go from one system to another. This system has smoothed my skin, reduced my redness, erased all dryness/flakiness and is brightening & refining my skin tone and texture. I have always felt the need to use a light to medium coverage foundation but now I do not have to use foundation. After a month of using Paula's Choice, I can go foundation free! I now just use a light powder on my face on a day to day basis. I am so happy with these products. And just as a bonus, you get 7 products for under $120 that will last for approximately 90 days. What a great deal!

            I started using these products right when I had a major reaction to a medicine I was taking and my face was covered with hives. I was unsure what I could put on my very sensitive skin during that time, but knew that I had to keep up some kind of skin regimen. I was really, really pleased with all of these products. Of course they couldn't heal my hives, but none of the products were irritating at all to my skin.

            Since my skin has returned to "normal" (somewhat dry - normal skin), I have continued using these products and find that they really are effective. My skin feels smooth and looks healthy. I particularly love the moisture mask and the serum. Also love that none of these products are scented. Highly recommend!

              This does what it says it will! I have been using her products forever, ever since I discovered it years ago. People inquire about what I am using, and even accuse me of lying about my age (think I am much younger).

              I tried everything on the market, expensive department store products and drugstore products.

              I have fair dry and sensitive skin. My beauty secret is out!

              This deserves TEN STARS.
              I never would have dreamed that I would go anywhere without foundation, and now I have a choice.
