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.
Truly Essential Kit
This kit really does have everything you need. I wish it was available in a travel size.
Amazed and Still Love it
I am in y 50s and this is not a scam these products work..I have had bad skin my whole life..My only regret is I didn't know about Paula choice until a year ago..But better late than never..What a great line for me..LOVE IT so far.

I absolutely love this product range. I've suffered from regular breakouts and slick, oily skin for years, and this is by far the only product in which I noticed a HUGE difference, almost overnight! Other products have always caused more breakouts, but I have never had skin as consistently smooth or radiant as I have using this range. I live in an arid zone and despite it being lightweight, my skin always feels hydrated. Also, i'm not the type to ever write reviews on a website but thank you Paula's Choice!!! This stuff is awesome! (Except the SPF, I still find that makes my skin shine too much)

Love this line!
I am kind of a product junkie, so I had held off on repurchasing Paula's Choice while I was using up other products, but I regretted it. Using other products, my skin was dull and icky. I purchased this set to replenish my supply and within a week my skin was perfect again. I'll never stray again. :)

Great core kit
Great kit but the 2% BHA irritated my skin. The spf makes your face a bit shiny - I have oily skin. Otherwise the cleanser and moisturizer are great.
I've been using this kit for about 2 weeks and I've already noticed improvement in my skin. My pores have dramatically reduced, and my acne is clearing up. I love how I can put the cleanser directly on my eyelids without irritation. The 2% BHA makes my skin feel a little tight, so I think the next time I'll swap it out for the toner instead. In the meantime I'm getting the sample full kit to see if I want to add more products to my regimen.

Improved my skin after only 2 weeks
I am really happy with this combo. The cleanser does it's job - removes makeup oil and dirt without over drying. The BHA liquid is great - I have had milia (white bumps) since I was in late primary school. After only 2 weeks of twice daily use I have noticed a huge reduction. The night moisturiser is perfect for me - not too heavy. The sunscreen stings my skin for about 15 minutes after applying BUT i called up and they sent me hydralight straight away, for no charge. Great service!
Resulted in dry skin
I used this starter kit to reduce my pores and oily skin. It worked great, but after a couple days I noticed my skin was dry and flaky. I then began using it every other day, but that didn't seem to reduce the flaking. It's a great product but perhaps not for my skin.
