Paula's Choice July 2013 Haul - Skin Balancing and Resist Skincare Products

Skin Balancing Por Reducing Toner, Skin Balancing Invisible Finish Moisture Gel, Resist Retinol Skin Smoothing Body Treatment, Resist Skin Revealing Body Lotion with 10% AHA, skin care, combination skin, oily skin, pore reduction, anti-aging
Paula's Choice products have long been my go-to brand for skincare and although I may give other brands a try, I always go back to my favorites.  After my recent breakout and a few other concerns I decided to give some additional products a try.

Skin Balancing Pore-Reducing Toner - This isn't actually new but a repurchase.  I wasn't really a believer in toner but I really do think that it does play a part in a good skincare routine.  I don't care for the packaging, I would rather see it in a spray bottle so what I do is I transfer it to an opaque spray bottle.  I generally spray a couple pumps onto a cotton round and wipe my entire face and neck. It is amazing how much make-up and dirt that your face wash missed.  If you are already working with a clean slate, you can also just spray it directly on your face. Claims:  Minimizes pores, helps prevent signs of aging and eliminates flaky, dehydrated skin

Skin Balancing Invisible Finish Moisture Gel - Many of my foundations and BB/CC Creams already have SPF so I don't necessarily want a moisturizer with sunscreen all the time.  I haven't tried this yet but I am sure it will be great.  It is a gel, which works well on oily skin.  Claims:  Stimulates collagen and minimizes pores and smooths wrinkles on face and eye area

Resist Retinol Skin Smoothing Body Treatment - This is a body care treatment that I plan to use on my d├ęcolletage.  Claims:  Hydrates and repairs, creates smoother, younger skin, builds collagen for firmer skin

Resist Skin Revealing Body Lotion with 10% AHA -  Another body lotion that can be used all over your body.  Claims - Exfolliates to reveal younger, hydrated skin, smoothes dry skin, improves texture and tone, antioxidants boost collagen production

My order came with three samples so got Resist Triple Action Dark Spot Eraser with 2% BHA.  I already use a BHA Gel on my face but this includes Hydroquinone which is said to be the best thing to treat dark spots.

The surprise was a small booklet "20 Beauty Myths Busted!"
