Who knew I was causing my skin troubles this whole time?

I have had sensitive and acne-prone skin ever since I was married (19 yrs) I had very large pores and ruddy looking skin. I thought I was supposed to scrub and manually exfoliate my skin regularly I also thought I didn't need a toner. I have been causing so much inflammation on my skin because of my skin habits. After reading this book my skin routine with completely overhauled. I have been on this new routine that the book recommended for about 3 months, and it really is true I have the best skin of my life, and I'm so excited! I naively thought that I knew so much about skin care but this book proved to me that I was doing so much wrong. Now that my skin is not constantly inflamed (by scrubbing or not using sunscreen) and I am using the right products I have not had trouble with acne or sensitive skin. You really need to read this book, it's amazing! I am giving this book to all my sister's for sure!

Great book and thoroughly researched and referenced

Received this as a gift with purchase promotion over the 2015 holiday season. Let's face it, anybody can write a book about skincare. If you want proof of that go to your nearest bookstore and peruse the health and beauty sections. You'll find celebrity-endorsed book after book with each contradicting the other. So what sets this book (along with Paula's other books) apart? Paula and her team back up their research with peer-reviewed journals. It's not based on beauty editors opinions. It's not based on claims that her products are superior. It's based on science and not marred with outrageous claims. They break down skin-types, what ingredients to look for and what ingredients to avoid. Must have book. Just wish this was available when I was a teenager!

10 Stars!

I would give this book 10 stars if I could. Paula and her team have saved us countless dollars and countless heartache by synthesizing all of the current research on skin care and makeup and presenting it in a way that the layperson can understand and use the advice. I have exclusively used Paula's skincare for years and this is why: it is based upon research and all of the ingredients are proven to be efficacious. I don't even buy makeup anymore until I read the Beautypedia review. I've never been steered wrong about any product. I am so thankful for the latest from Paula and her team!

Yet another great book from Paula!

I got this book pre-ordered for my Kindle Fire. I prefer having it in a digital format because I can access quickly. These days it's so much easier than carrying around a book. In any case...This is again another great book written by Paula. I love that she is very detailed and knowledgeable. I know some people may think she just pushes her products, so what?? They work! I have tried countless of products in my life but I've never experienced anything like Paula's Choice. I particularly like the section on the cosmetic surgery and procedure. I hope some day she writes a book about makeup how to.

Add this even if you have the other books!

I am a big fan of Paula's Choice Cosmetics and the authors themselves. I purchased the 3rd through 8 editions of Don't Go To The Cosmetics Counter Without Me and started using this line back in the early two thousands. I recently returned after about a ten year lapse. Sadly, I was tempted by an expensive department store line. At one point my dermatologist even cautioned me that I was spending too much on my skin care regime. Long story short, I am back with Paula's Choice and WOW, what a huge difference. My pocketbook is thankful too. This new book is full of the latest information and even new makeup tips and tricks from several current make-up artists. If you have other books by the authors, the first thing you will notice is the size of the the new book. It is certainly not their usual tome! Alas, that's not an indication of less information or more of the same information. I really feel all the authors did an excellent job of including and condensing and updating the necessary information however, I am giving it five stars in spite of the fact that it did leave out the information that certain populations of people are precluded from using certain types of fillers. I felt that this information might be helpful in the future for those readers seeking info about cosmetic procedures in Chapter 13. Overall, this is a great gift for adults as well as teens. I am planning to give it as a gift in combination with the Paula's Choice trial skin care kit that best fits their skincare needs. I really like the fact that this new book outlines, step-by-step, the order of application of skin care products for you specific skin concern. For example, if you have a prescription product for a concern, this books tells you where this product belongs in your daily beauty routine. It really take the guess work out of product application order. This book really can help any customer get "The Best Skin"!

Love this book but there is no index in the back! An index would be very helpful to quickly look up certain topics.
