Who is using Paula's Choice products?  What do you use?  What is good?

I am 39, very dry skin, a few wrinkles but not too bad, few freckles but not terrible sunspots.

I have bought the day Resist moisteriser with spf and I am happy with it.  I also got lots of samples and everything seems to be good but I am kinda confused!  There seem to be so many exfoliaters, treatments and serums and that all have similar benefits and I dont really know which ones to buy so I thought I'd ask for some recommendations.  

Do I get the weekly resurfacing treatment or a daily one or BOTH?  

So confused!

I am now 38 and for the past 18m have been using the resist line.

I do use the daily resurfacing daily, have the weekly but don't actually use it that often.

I have the anti oxidant resist serum,

Moisture boost toner ( I have dry skin)

Resist barrier repair moisturiser

Skin recovery moisturiser

I do like the products.

Thank you.  I am being posted the two moisteriser samples that you mentioned.

Might just start with the daily treatment and see how it goes.

I use the moisture boost cleanser morning and night with my clarisonic.
I alternate between the BHA9 and the 8% AHA gel at night.
Followed by the brightener, retinol serum, then moisture boost or recovery moisturiser.

In the morning I just apply the moisture boost SPF after cleansing.

I tried the resist cleanser and barrier cream but prefer her other options.

Eta I think there are quite a few links on her website to help choose the right products for your skin

I am trialling some of this, but an finding the smell of the moisturizer hard to get used to. I am
Trying the hydralite range (oily t-zone), it has BHA 1% but not a SPF sunscreen (tricky).

Did anyone else have this issue? My Clairins always smells lovely and fresh.

They are made for sensitive skins so they are perfume free and don't always smell so great but I love her products. The website is pretty helpful on helping you decide what to use. I love the face cleanser...I use it to wash my face and my eyemakeup comes off, without any scrubbing. I have oily acne prone skin so I use the BHA lotion mostly but occasionally use the AHA. I have very sensitive skin but have never reacted to her products.
