Who can resist Paula’s Choice?

Sorry, I couldn’t help but make that joke, although I have to say that now that I’ve tried this skin care line, I’m pretty much hooked.

Prior to this review, I hadn’t tried any of Paula’s Choice skin care, although I am very much aware of Paula Begoun, the founder, as the Cosmetics Cop who is all about truth in beauty, skin care, ingredients and proven research. In fact, I had the chance to interview her when Beautypedia launched several years ago. Her website has a full encyclopedia of advice for every type of skin care concern. She is a wealth of information!

I am a true skin care junkie. I absolutely believe that it doesn’t matter how much contouring and concealing you do or how much makeup you wear – if your skin is a mess, there is no hiding that! Besides, the better you treat your skin, the less makeup you’ll have to invest in to fix your flaws. Read more
