Paula's Choice now in the Philippines!

One of my favorite international beauty blogs is The Cosmetics Cop by Paula Begoun. I love her candidness and the way she makes the technical aspect of every beauty product simple and understandable for every reader. She's also into the scientific part of beauty products (e.g. ingredients, technology and the likes) like me! I admire her the most for her no-holds-barred product reviews, which greatly influenced how I do mine. In 1995, Paula has founded her own skin care line called Paula's Choice and shortly thereafter, she wrote a couple of best- selling books and one of which is "Don't Go To The Cosmetics Counter Without Me". I am more than thrilled to find out that her skin care line is finally in the Philippines! Great! No need to travel to Bangkok (the nearest country to the Philippines where you can find Paula's Choice products) to check it out!

Paula's Choice is established by no other than Paula Begoun, the culmination of years of independent research and of being a passionate fan of skin care products. Paula's Choice is sort of a tailor- made skin care line as it has a vast array of products that targets all skin concerns, whether it's light, moderate, or severe. Just a fun fact, Paula struggled with acne and eczema as a teenager-what moved her to come up with the best routine for her skin type was when she found out that one of the products she was using contained Acetone as an ingredient. Her readers were the ones who pushed her to finally come up with a skin care brand.

The exclusive bloggers' launch was held in Marriot Hotel together with Naree Mongkol, Managing Director for Paula's Choice Thailand. Here are some of her best- sellers in the flesh. Click READ MORE and know more about this exciting brand!

L-R: Skin Perfecting BHA Liquid, a solution that unclogs pores and clarifies skin, Resist Anti-Aging Clear Skin Hydrator, a hydrating anti- aging treatment, Skin Perfecting AHA Gel that reveals brighter and a more even complexion, Skin Balancing Ultra Sheer Daily Defense, a day sunblock for oil/combination/normal skin types, and Resist C15 Super Booster, a gel-liquid serum with immediate hydrating and retexturizing effects.

Here are more of Paula's anti-aging products: Resist Pure Radiance Brightening Skin Treatment for even complexion and Resist Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum, which has this silicone texture and mattifying finish.

Ms. Naree also demonstrated the power of the Resist C15 Super Booster. She used it on a dehydrated Apple and a few seconds after application, the dry, uneven surface looked super fresh all of a sudden. Crikey!

This is the product that I'm ultra excited about: Skin Perfecting Liquid with 2% BHA. BHA or Beta Hydroxy Acid is a known pore declogging and skin purifying substance and the most popular type is Salicylic Acid. Good news for me because this product contains SA, which is the only BHA type that my skin responds to positively.

Presenting the complete Paula's Choice range:

Paula's Choice has body, hair, and sun care products too:

With my fellow beauty bloggers Donna, Earth, Sabs, and Julia. We're excited to try out Paula's Choice!

I took home the Skin Perfecting Liquid with 2% BHA Liquid. Lovely! I just started using and will let you know if it is indeed a skin- perfecting product!

6 Lovely Thoughts

  1. I first read it from the blog of Ms.Caroline Hirons and Ms. Julia of blessmybag , it didn't interest me that much because I have this thinking that if Ms.Martha doesn't blog about it maybe it's not worth the hype. hihihihi. Now it's a lot of products and I'll just wait for your reviews Ms. M :)

  2. Very interesting brand. :) What's the price range of their products? Looks expensive, but seems like worth a try. Can't wait for your review. :) Btw, where will this be available? :)

  3. yay! finally Paula's here! been wanting to try resist and aha +bha line.

  5. Jenh: Hi and welcome to my blog! I'm using BHA and I love it! My skin's condition improved drastically. :)

    Issa: Yup! Skin Perfecting BHA is my fave. :D

    Rizza: I think for now, you can purchase it directly from them-just inquire via their FB fan page. Price range is pretty affordable for a premium brand. Starts at P800.00, I think. :)
