Founded by the outspoken skin expert, Paula Begoun in 1995, Paula’s Choice skincare is based on science and delivers results. Who is Paula Begoun?

Why We Love Paula's Choice

Over the years, I’ve tried and tested a lot of products, especially when I was the beauty director at Grazia. These days I try to restrict adding too many new products into my routine as I’ve learnt what works best for my skin and don’t like to overload it in case it causes irritation. What I love about Paula’s Choice is that its not a brand led by trends, it follows the science. The formulas champion specific ingredients, including bakuchiol and salicylic acid, because they’re backed by studies rather than trending on TikTok. That’s why I’ve tried and tested quite a few of the brand’s products and use several of them regularly.

Our Head Of Editorial’s Edit Of The Best Paula’s Choice Products

01

Paula's Choice

Clinical Discolouration Repair Serum, £49.00

Paula's Choice Clinical Discolouration Repair Serum helped to ease the appearance of the post-summer dark spots that I noticed around my hairline last autumn and I haven’t taken out of my skincare routine since. While tranexamic acid helps to brighten your complexion and combat pigmentation, niacinamide keeps your pores refined and strengthens your skin barrier. As someone with slightly oily skin, the latter is one of my go-to, can't-live-without skincare ingredients.

Paula's Choice

CBD + Retinol Oil, £47.00

If you haven't dabbled with retinol before or have experienced the harsh peeling and irritation that some formulas can cause, I highly recommend trying Paula’s Choice CBD + Retinol Oil. You get all the skin-boosting benefits of a 0.5% dose of vitamin A, while cannabidiol (CBD) helps to soothe and restore. Being a Paula's Choice formula, it's also jam-packed with hydrating and nourishing ingredients without feeling heavy or greasy on your skin. As someone with oily skin, I can 100% vouch for this retinol oil.

Paula's Choice

C15 Super Booster, £52.00

This works wonders for brightening my skin thanks to the inclusion of 15% pure vitamin C. I always apply a small amount every morning after I’ve cleansed. Not only does my skin look more radiant, a few drops of this also helps to protect my skin from city life.

Paula's Choice

Resist Ultra-light Serum, £36.00

To say I love this product would be an understatement. Sometimes I apply it straight onto freshly cleansed skin, other times I’ll mix a couple of drops into my C15 Super Booster to help refine and even out my skin. The antioxidant blend also hydrates and helps to protect skin from sun damage and pollution, while hyaluronic acid ensures my complexion is hydrated and plumped up.

Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant, £34.00

Read any Paula’s Choice reviews, and you can guarantee this product will be raved about. Without a doubt, Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant is worth the hype, and I recommend to anyone regardless of skin type. It really helps to gently unclog pores, smooth out uneven texture and keep my naturally oily skin clear. I soak a cotton pad and apply to cleansed skin every night before bed.

Paula's Choice

25% AHA + 2% BHA Exfoliant Peel, £41.00

The newest addition to Paula’s Choice line-up is a once-a-week-treat for your skin. With an acid blend of 25% AHA and 2% BHA, this is strong stuff and shouldn’t be used more than once a week, even if you have the oiliest skin around. It’s part of my Sunday evening skincare routine to help prep my skin for the week ahead. After rinsing it off, your skin feels so soft, and it feels like any of the serums you apply next have the best chance of being fully absorbed. I follow up with the Resist Ultra-Light Serum and another nourishing serum.
