Where do you get Paula's choice products, and what is your favorite cleanser from this brand?

But I also have probelms depending on which foundation I use.....it seems I breakout to a lot of foundations with sunscreen, the best one I have found that doesn't irritate my skin is NARS oil free. THIS ROUTINE SERIOUSLY FIXED MY SKIN ALONG WITH CHANGING FOUNDATIONS!!! I had been going to a dermatologist that had only made my skin worse!!
If you need more specific names of the face products to find them let me know.......they are not in front of me at the moment.

Simply because she knows cosmetic and skin care formulations at the level of how they'll work for skin. Over the years I've used all of the cleansers, the 1% BHA, 2% BHA and blemish fighting solution(a really great combination to heal up breakouts)!! the antioxidant serum, a couple moisturizers and most of the sunscreens. Everything is just A-1. You can read up on everything at www.cosmeticscop.com.

Actually its quicker if you DO place an order over the phone. You may also ask for samples of the skin care and cosmetics before placing a larger order. The samples are very generous. In fact the customer service encourages you to do so.

For those who was acne prone problem I definetely reccomend Avene cleanance gel nettoyant as a cleanser. I had acne since I was 6 years old, can you imagine?? I went to dermadologists and they said that I can do nothing for my acne problem and it will disapper at the age of 25!!!!Since I was 11 or 12, I can remember,I had a major problem with acne.Then a pharmacist suggest me to use this cleanser. One year later I didn't have any acne problem!!This cleanser dissapear everything!! Now I'm 21 and since then I use it every day twice and I have no problem with acne!! Also is perfect for my oily skin!!

I started to answer you early this morning and than I hit some key by mistake and it all disappeared..grrrrrr. Anyways, I've only used the 2.5% benzoyl peroxide blemish fighting solution; I think the 5% would be too irritating to my skin. And besides Paula always says to start off with the the most gentle product first and if that works STAY WITH IT. Her products are really fantastic and hope you get a chance to try some.
