It's a game changer


I switched over to all-natural skin care products about 6 months ago and it was such a joke--never had my face broken out so badly as when I was on this routine. I had used Paula's Choice in the past and based on my current skin needs the customer service team recommended the skin balancing kit. It took only a week for my skin to totally clear up! I am so amazed by this kit and I get excited morning and night to go through my skincare routine so I know I will have awesome clear skin!

This kit is AMAZING


This pack is amazing. It has everything I need to keep oily skin and breakouts at bay. I usually buy the PC4Men range but have had breakouts recently. These products do exactly as they say and they actually do control oily skin. My skin looks amazing and people ask!! I even bought my sister one.

Perfect for Everyone


Who doesn't want balanced skin?! This line is incredible for all skin types and was my first line of Paula's Choice products. I recently switched to the Resist line because I'm starting to get wrinkles, but I still use a few products from this line because they are so effective. I am adamant on never wearing make-up EVER and this product line helped me with that. I have combination oily and dry skin and I have occasional acne and red spots... this "balanced" my skin. It's truly incredible and you WILL see results the first time you use it. After the first week you'll forget any other brand but Paula's Choice exists.

Just wanted to tell the people searching for a reason why to buy this product. Yes the price is a little much, but it is worth it. My skintype is combination, and my skin is prone to blackheads and cystic acne, where my pores get infected/ becomes swollen and it hurts and takes a week to clear by itself usually around my chin and nose area. It also means i cannot extract it because of the swelling. I have never had such amazing products. This has reduced the overall eruptions of the cystic acne, and even when it does happen this cuts the time for it to clear. My blackheads become easier to extract and my pores have become much smaller. When i stop using the product or forget to, my skin wont break out like some skincare products do. It does a great job of evening out the oilyness of my skin tone and the toners and cleaners wont dry out my skin. It has lasted me a year and because of that they have given me a discount to repurchase what i bought a year ago, which is really nice and it makes me want to keep buying the products. I love the retinol that comes with it, it makes my skin look really nice. I'm a college student and i go through alot of stressful and sleepless nights, this set makes me glow and wakeup with smooth butterlicious skin, and im thankful i found it because i'd be a hot mess. So hopefully this encourages you to buy this set. One thing i do have to say is the first time you use it, you may see some pimples pop up but it is because it is pulling up the stuff that would have erupted at a later time, im not a professional but it has what i have noticed, there are no burning sensations or anything that will set you off, again if you are still hesitant try the samples and make that decision for yourself, hope this helps. :D

It does what it says and says what it does. I get complements for my skin. It goes!




Skin Balancing Advanced Kit


I have been an Obagi fan/user for the past 8+ years. I started to feel like it wasn't giving me the results I wanted and I wondered if there was any better products out there. I saw a review on the advanced serum on Instagram and the results looked very promising. I have been using the system for about a month now. I use it, along with the Resist Triple-Action Dark Spot Eraser 7% 2x a day. The first week I broke out in these weird white bumps around my mouth, nose and eyelids, but I kept using the system and no longer have that issue. Since using the system my brown spots have faded (slowly, but I can tell a difference), my makeup goes on smoothly, pores have significantly shrunk (nose and check area), skin is baby soft and tightened, and my wrinkles have diminished. Now that my skin is used to the system I have started to incorporate my Obagi tretinoin .05% and blender at night. (Only when I think my skin can handle it. If it starts peeling too much, I let my skin rest for a few days.) On the nights that I use the Obagi, follow the following protocol: cleanser, toner, Resist Triple-Action Dark Spot Eraser 7%, Obagi trentinoin .05%, Obagi Blender and the systems moisturizer. I feel like my skin heels faster from the tretinoin with this system then with the rest of the Obagi system. So far I've had great results using both. Note: I always wear a hat when I am outside and lather on the systems sunscreen.

This kit has changed my life! In less than a week my husband started commenting on my "glow" and asked if it was makeup. The best thing was I had no makeup on. This kit is perfect for my breakout prone skin, it has already reduced wrinkles, reduced pores, given my skin a bright quality and made it silky smooth. I can't wait to see the long term results! I've already encouraged my mum to buy a kit and I've already purchased more products for myself. The one negative thing was the mask which burned and irritated my skin and which I will not use again. I feel the mask was unnecessary for me anyway as I'd already seen remarkable results prior to using it.

Can't live without these products


After trying several of Paula's Choice products. Sometimes entire lines and sometimes a mix and match, I've settled for this line because it's the best for my combination skin. My only complain, if you want to call it that way is that I wish she would offer more sizes for all the products. I would like to see the choices for big sizes like the cleanser but also travel size to take along.

the skin I had years ago, only better!


I am not a fan of kits and regular routines involving multiple steps, but this year it looked like my skin needed some help. I noticed loss of elasticity, uneven tone, redness, tightness, and breakouts. Using this kit as per the instructions did not add much time to my routine since the products absorb quickly. I added some BHA 9 for the trouble spots and after two weeks I feel like going out without makeup just because I look so good! Excellent value with well-sized products.

These products have changed my skin and my life!.


Where do I start. I was initially really excited to try out this skin care brand. I am so thankful I did. These products have made such a difference in my skin. They are so high quality at such a good price. I only have the cleanser and the toner from this line so far. The cleanser is very creamy and deep cleansing. I can use it around my eyes with no issues. The toner is very lightweight and dries fairly quickly. Both of these products help reduce the appearance of pores, leave the skin very soft, and are very gentle. If you have enlarged pores and sensitive skin, this kit was made for you! :)
