Paula’s Choice Resist Perfectly Balanced Foaming Cleanser – In-depth Review and Ingredient Analysis

If you can only manage to do one thing before crashing into bed, clean your skin. It’s probably the most important step of skincare, even if the rest of your regime is very good. If your skin is not clean then it almost doesn’t matter what you give it after, you will still end up with ageing signs, dullness, dryness, spots, blackheads etc. Getting a good cleanser is paramount but the task is not as simple as leaving the skinRead more

Although toners are definitely not a must-have, they can be quite helpful in removing left over dirt and providing extra nutritious ingredients for your skin, that perhaps the rest of your skincare regime is missing. It’s hard to get all the right ingredients and in the right concentration, so why not add a toner to your regime to give you a little help? I’ve previously wrote about some of the mostRead more

Paula’s Choice Resist Anti-Aging Clear Skin Hydrator – Indepth Review and Ingredient Analysis

A good moisturiser is not just a cream that adds moisture to the skin but also one that nourishes and keeps it healthy. Nourishment is something that many forget but it is especially important, not only for slowing down ageing, but also because quite simply if the skin is not healthy it might not hold any moisture to begin with. Dry skin will in turn cause other problems and you end up in a viscous circle. As a result, aRead more

The Staple of Body Moisturisers – Paula’s Choice Daily Replenishing Body Cream – In-depth Review and Ingredient Analysis

There are so many body creams, lotions and butters out there but very few of them are worth your time and money. Somehow, the development and quality of body products has lagged behind face skincare, as if, that skin needs less attention than our face. Our entire body is covered in skin, our biggest organ in our body, and it needs the same nourishment and care all around. Sadly though, even if you wanted to nourish your body’s skin asRead more

Paula’s Choice Clinical Ceramide-Enriched Firming Moisturiser – In-depth Review and Ingredient Analysis

Skincare is so important not only for maintaining healthy skin but also for future proofing and slowing down the signs of ageing as much as possible. There are so many moisturisers in the market, ranging from £1-100+ and so you might think that you are spoilt for choice. Sadly, when you start looking into ingredients, you’d quickly realise that most of them are very superficial, moisturising or conditioning only the surface and for a short period of time. Your skinRead more

Great skincare addons – Paula’s Choice Resist Weightless Advanced Repairing Toner – In-depth review and Ingredient Analysis

Toners have gone through a lot of hype but also a lot of misconceptions. Toners are liquid products that you are supposed to use after you clean your face and are set to “tone” the skin. While toners do not necessarily “tone the skin” and if you ask me are not an absolute must have, they can help take your skincare to the next level. However, this is only possible if the toner is highly nutritious for your skin andRead more

A nourishing, mattifying day cream with SPF – Paula’s Choice RESIST Super-Light Daily Wrinkle Defence Broad Spectrum SPF30 – In-Depth Review and Ingredient Analysis

Moisturising your skin is a very important task, even if you are the oily type. Part of the oily skin problem can sometimes be caused due to lack of moisturisation, as the skin’s desperate attempt to compensate. Nevertheless, whether you are oily or not, giving your skin some replenishing, nourishing and conditioning ingredients as well as SPF protection during the day time is an absolute must! As a result, I am always looking out for a good day cream andRead more

Paula’s Choice Clinical 1% Retinol Treatment – In-Depth Review, Ingredient Analysis and a Chemist’s Verdict

Paula’s Choice Skincare Resist Anti-Aging Serum Foundation – In-Depth Review and Ingredient Analysis

Paula’s Choice is one of my favourite brands as it stands for similar concepts as me, the two major ones being that “the ingredients are the truth” and not the marketing words on cosmetic packaging, and they base the ingredients’ claims on scientific, peer-reviewed studies. I have many of the skincare products from this brand and I love them, some of their products are ride or die for me and make a huge difference on my skin. So I thoughRead more

Paula’s Choice Resist Youth-Extending Daily Hydrating Fluid SPF 50 – In Depth Review and Ingredient Analysis

Wearing an SPF of minimum 15 is an absolute must at all times, for the health and youth preservation of our skin. However, with the summer months now already settled and the sun shining lower and stronger, our skincare protection must also adapt accordingly.
