Paula’s Choice – My New Beauty Secret

Paula’s Choice – My New Beauty Secret

We grand moms are always on the lookout for beauty products that really work, right? We’ve been around for a while now and we don’t fall easily for all those fake products with extraordinary claims.

Well, I just found a beauty product without the hype that actually delivers and I can’t wait to share with you.

Paula’s Choice is an exfoliant that surprised and delighted me with just one application.  I was shocked at how much improvement I saw in my skin.

Recently, while visiting the family in California, my daughter, Sonja, shared Paula’s Choice with me. She enthused on and on about how great it worked for her. She felt her skin was really dry from living in California and confessed that she had been trying lots of skin products; many she had to apply several times a day. Then, as good luck would have it, a good friend introduced her to Paula’s Choice; Sonja tried it; loved it and was excited to share with me.

Truth be known, Sonja has gorgeous skin. She is in her mid-forties and still gets carded so I was appreciative that she wanted to share her beauty find with me, and I of course, gave it a courtesy try (but quite frankly, with low expectations). I’m 72 and grew up in Florida way before sunblock/sunscreen products were invented.

After my first application, I was truly delighted when I noticed how nice and clean and yet moisturized the skin on my face felt, but best of all, there was this nice little shine to my skin (usually reserved for MUCH younger skin or only attained when I applied some ‘brightener/radiance claiming” expensive cream).

To top off this great experience, Sonja ordered a bottle for me from Amazon – it’s priced reasonably at $29.  When I got home I was already off and running.

This weekend, my daughter, Tiffany and family came for a visit. I could not wait to introduce Paula’s Choice to her.  No surprize, she too experienced an immediate improvement and told me she could not wait to order a bottle.

I’m not a doctor, esthetician or skin expert of any kind, but if you want to try it too, you’ll find Paula’s Choice here.

Note: When using moderate- to high-strength retinol products, pay attention to how your skin responds when used with your AHA or BHA exfoliant. If your skin shows signs of irritation, reduce the frequency of use until you find the right balance for your skin.
