It’s been a hot minute since I’ve shared my thoughts on skincare here on the blog, so I’m thrilled to introduce my latest obsession – Paula’s Choice Peel. I recently grabbed this gem from Dermstore. I couldn’t resist stocking up on six bottles of Paula’s Choice skincare, the Best of Dermstore Kit (40% off), and get a free mystery BeautyFix Box, and two extra freebies! But out of everything I’ve tried from this haul, her peel has quickly become my new fave. The free beauty box gift is still available until the end of March!

My Dermstore Haul

As a devout fan of Paula’s Choice, I was devastated when NORDSTROM stopped carrying the brand. But, as luck would have it, I discovered that Dermstore offers an impressive selection of Paula’s Choice products, plus free multi-brand beauty gifts with purchase! Needless to say, I was beyond relieved.

Dr. Brandt No More Baggage Eye De-puffing Gel Review

I’m impressed with this Dr. Brandt No More Baggage Eye De-puffing Gel. The lightweight, red gel absorbs beautifully into the skin. What’s particularly great about this product is that it’s so versatile. The thin texture allows me to use it as an eye serum before layering on a heavier cream like Estée Lauder, without feeling greasy or weighed down (no thanks). Plus, it’s always a relief to find an eye product that doesn’t cause Milia.

While it’s still a bit too early to see dramatic results, I’ve noticed a decrease in puffiness under my eyes. Overall, give Dr. Brandt’s No More Baggage Eye De-puffing Gel a try. It’s a great investment for anyone looking to reduce puffiness.

Paula’s Choice RESIST Advanced Pore Refining Treatment 4% BHA Review

I was particularly excited to try the new Paula’s Choice RESIST Advanced Pore Refining Treatment 4% BHA. This product is only available on Paula’s Choice USA and Dermstore, so I wasted no time in getting my hands on it. This pore-refining treatment has quickly become a staple in my weekly skincare routine. It’s NOT gentle yet effective.

Paula’s Choice RESIST Advanced Pore Refining Treatment 4% BHA available $39 at Dermstore or at Paula’s Choice USA  

Paula’s Choice Foam Treatment 4% BHA was my must-have skincare essential. The only downside? It was discontinued! But the new Paula’s Choice RESIST Advanced Pore Refining Treatment 4% BHA is here, and I couldn’t be more excited… although, I must admit, I’m a little skeptical about whether it will be as effective as the original.

For those who don’t know, the 4% BHA treatment is the real deal. While some may find Paula’s Choice 2% BHA treatment is already too strong for their sensitive skins, the 4% formula packs a punch and gets to work on even the most stubborn pores. After just one use, I noticed a remarkable difference in my complexion – clearer and more refined. And as someone with acne-prone combination skin, this product has been a godsend.

My skin has been left even and blemish-free. And let’s be real, who doesn’t love a good peel? If you’re in the market for a new skincare staple, I highly recommend giving this Paula’s Choice peel a try. Just be sure to start with the 2% formula first if you’re new to BHA treatments. Your skin will thank you!
