Review: Paula’s Choice!

UPDATED LIST & BLOG POST (2018)

Watch my vegan nighttime skincare routine!

 

I had heard so many good things about this brand and when I found out they were cruelty free, I decided to research them more. I emailed them asking about vegan products they have and they sent me a complete list of everything that has an animal ingredient in it! Woot! That made it easy. Now they have a full page saying what isn’t vegan!! I’ll include it at the bottom.

Resist Weightless Body Treatment 2% BHA *

I have had Keratosis Pilaris for years! Ever since I can remember. I’m glad I’m not the only one, half of the population also suffers from it! As it’s completely harmless, it’s annoying to wear a tank top or see photos of my arms and see it. I went to the dermatologist previously and what they prescribed to me was something containing lactose — yuck! To my excitement, the Resist Weightless Body Treatment 2% BHA is vegan! I’ve been using this for months now and I have repurchased and I plan to repurchase many times in the future. I apply to my arms once or twice a day and it hasn’t been a problem. The keratosis pilaris hasn’t completely gone away but it looks 100% better! Yay!

Shine Stopper *

Then I decided to try the shine stopper. It has much better ingredients than Lush’s Grease Lighting (a personal favorite) but does it work as well? At first, I hated this product! After it dried, it was super streaky and made my makeup look horrible. However, put this baby on with a beauty blender and it will give you a flawless finish! Yay! Much better than Lush’s! I love Lush products but they include ingredients like fragrances that irritate my skin where Paula’s Choice is all unscented.
