Paula’s Choice is a brand I never had access to until recently. But the reviews I got the chance to see and read online were amazing!

A natural, organic skincare line suitable for all skin types and able to gently take care of every skin problem, well… I had to try it! My skin is pretty good at the moment, no major break ups, a bit of irritation and redness and the dullness characteristic to the transitional season period, was something I learnt to live with throughout the years… I just switch my skincare routine to a more nourishing one and I’m good!

So when I discovered that Paula’s Choice was available for purchase in my country, I thought I should give it a try! And I was not disappointed!


I was on a hunt for a good moisturizer for the colder seasons, so I ordered the Resist Barrier Repair Moisurizer with Retinol.

This moisturizer contains a specialized complex of ingredients proven to remodel aging skin, bringing it to a healthier, more youthful state-really. The formula is packed with ingredients that work to build and preserve collagen ( you know aging is not the funniest of processes ), prevent moisture loss ( which I completely needed ), restore essential ingredients to protect skin’s barrier function, and reduce inflammation with potent antioxidants. It suitable for all skin types and targeted towards aging and Rosacea.

More points from me because this moisturizer also doubles as an eye cream. So, one step minus in my skin care routine? Yes, please!

It is a light moisturizer which absorbs extremely well, leaving the skin extremely soft, fresher and the aspect of the fine lines around my eyes seem diminished. Even if people shy away from products containing retinol, the retinol in it is not irritating my sensitive skin at all. I use it as a part of my daily skin care routine, under my usual SPF, and because it absorbs in a couple of seconds it acts as a great primer too, and makes makeup application easier.

Here you have the complete list of Ingredients:


Overall, I am pleased of how this product makes my skin feel and I will definitely keep using it!

Have you tried any Paula’s Choice product? What else should I try next?

See you soon, beautiful!
