Review of PAULA’S CHOICE Skin Balancing Oil-Reducing Cleanser

Posted on March 23, 2013


Paulas-Choice-Skin-Balancing-Oil-Reducing-Face-Cleanser-skincareWe wanted to revisit the Paula’s Choice skin care line (it’s one of our picks for best luxury women’s skincare lines) and focus our product review on a facial cleanser that garnered our attention – their Skin Balancing Oil-Reducing Cleanser – for normal, combination, oily skin.

From the manufacturer’s product description, this cleanser is effective for acne breakouts, anti-aging, blackheads, enlarged pores, and wrinkles. It produces a light lather that removes excess oil and makeup, soothes skin (perfect for sensitive skin), and best of all, it’s 100% fragrance and dye free.

When we first received the face cleanser, we were surprised by the physical size of it. We ordered the 16 ounce bottle not realizing that every wash only requires a small dab. Your money will go a long way with this product! It possesses a silky smooth white pearlescent color with a soap-like smell that produces a rich foamy lather. Within the first use, one can already tell that this cleanser is very gentle because it does not leave your skin dry or tight, even on sensitive skin types. It feels very clean and refreshing with no grimy residue.

After several weeks of use, we are now hooked on this product and have included it in our daily skin care regimen. A few of our staff members have oily skin and suffer from the occasional acne breakouts. Even though this cleanser does not contain any acne fighting ingredients, its non-abrasive nature encourages anyone to change up their skincare regimen with this product. Why? The typical skin care regimen for combatting acne will already include multiple products with salicylic acid as well as benzoyl peroxide which are both harsh on your skin. Throwing this into our regimen reduces the concentration of salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide that is applied to your face.

Don’t be afraid to change up your daily skin care routine. Who knows, maybe you’ll fall in love with Paula’s Choice Oil-Reducing Cleanser like we did!
