An Introduction to Paula's Choice

I went a little bit sample mad!

Recently I decided that enough was enough with my terrible skin. I'm nearly 27 and most 17 year olds have less spots than me. My pet peeve is blackheads and I've decided I'm on a mission to blast the blackheads. Whilst doing some research on skin care that was suitable for my dry but spotty skin I came across a brand called Paula's Choice. As a beauty blogger I'm quite informed with makeup brands but I have to admit that I am quite lazy when it comes to skincare and I had never heard of Paula's Choice. Whilst browsing their website I found that you can order samples of the products, so before splashing the cash on a product I've never tried I decided to go sample mad! 
Paula's Choice was created by Paula Begoun, a makeup artist who had suffered from acne herself and who, after working in the cosmetics industry, had become frustrated with products being miss-sold and miss-marketed. I too find this frustrating; mascara that makes your lashes actually grow, false lash effect mascaras? It seems that each product makes a bigger claim than the last and once you get past the hyperbole you usually end up with a pretty average product. Paula's Choice's scientific and factual approach to marketing appeals to me, they also happen to be fragrance and cruelty free.

Two of the products I'm most excited about!

The products that I am most looking forward to trying are the Paula's Choice Skin Recovery Cleanse and the Skin Perfecting Lotion. Paula's Choice Skin Recovery Cleanser is a rich and fragrance free cleanser for dry skin. The Skin Perfecting Lotion is an exfoliant that I am hoping will improve my skin in general and hopefully have some impact on the dreaded blackheads. I'm really pleased that I've found a skin care range that is both gentle for dry skin and targets spots at the same time. I feel like I've been searching for products that offer this for a long time.
I ordered a sample set for normal to dry skin and one for normal to very dry skin. Each of these cost £5.10 and contain seven samples. I'm hoping that I'll find some products that work for my problematic skin, I'll then purchase these and of course write full reviews! I should also point out that Paula's Choice also have a line of cosmetics, which I may try out if I am as impressed with the skin care range as I hope to be.
