Take The Guess Work Out Of Skin Care with Paula's Choice

**Thank you to Paula's Choice and PRIMP for sponsoring this post! And a huge thank you to my readers for supporting the sponsors that make Agape Love Designs possible. All thoughts, tips and opinions are my own.**
Hey beauty babes! Welcome and thank you so much visiting - today I am back with a review of the Moisture Boost Collection and a few other skin care goodies I received c/o Paula's Choice. {Psst...in case you hadn't noticed in the photo above there is also a pretty great promo going on until the end of this month! 20% off + free shipping with code PRIMPWINTER.} I'm always excited to try out, learn about and share skin care products, because whether you know this already or not - skin care is very important. I firmly believe that taking care of your skin is the first and even most important step when it comes to beauty. Makeup is fun and wonderful, but I believe that before one starts with makeup they must first start with skin care. This is something I am currently teaching my (almost 13 year old) daughter! ;)

Now, I've said it before and I will say it again, while I absolutely love it - skin care can be a "touchy" subject for a beauty blogger. What works for me wont work for all! It can be hard to find and choose the right products for your your skin. Still I am always excited to try out products and share my thoughts - because reviews are something I personally depend on and take into account when purchasing products! I love to do my research.  Still, while skin care reviews are helpful and informative, they may not answer the question of what is really going to be best for YOU.

Thankfully Paula's Choice takes all the guess work out of it! Their product line includes something for everyone, acne, rosacea, aging, pores. They treat it all. On top of that, Paula's Choice  is committed to customer advocacy, education and helping people find the best products for their skin. Did you know that they actually offer FREE personal skin consultations!? How wonderful! All you have to do is call the number 1-800-831-4088, and they will help you find the correct products for your own skin type and skin issues. Recently, I had my own skin care consultation with a Paula's Choice specialist to help me figure out which collection and products would best suit my skin care needs.

I personally have combination skin, that leans dry, I don't have any major signs of aging - and I would like to keep it that way! ;) I've got occasion acne breakouts but they are random and sparse. My biggest concerns are my eye care needs. Ive got dark circles and without a good eye cream my become dry droopy and scaly (yuck). So basically it was decided that I needed products to help maintain my already healthy skin, keeping it plump and youthful by keeping any dryness at bay and random acne appearances in check!
So products that were recommended to me included the Moisture Boost Advanced Kit, as well as extra skin care goodies: Resist Anti-Aging Eye Cream and  Resist C15 Super Booster! The following 5 products are included in the Moisture Boost Kit - which is just $99! To some that may seem like a lot of money, you must realize skin care is an investment! Me, however, I find that price to be amazing! That breaks down to just under $20 per product, and I have paid more than double that for other luxury skin care items/sets in the past. ♥

Moisture Boost One Step Face Cleanser:
Normal to Dry Skin - Morning & Night
Lightly lathering, this silky formula quickly removes all makeup (including eye makeup) and rinses easily.

Moisture Boost Hydrating Toner:
Normal to Dry Skin - Morning & Night
Normalize and optimize skin function with this lightly hydrating toner. I have never really used a toner or saw purpose in using one. But I very much so enjoy this one!

Skin Perfecting 1% BHA Lotion Exfoliant:
All Skin Types - Morning & Night
Exfoliate, reduce breakouts, and lightly hydrate with this weightless matte finish lotion. This contains salicylic Acid to help fight acne. Typically Salicylic Acid dries my skin out badly, yet this one is so mild, its quite perfect for my skin.

Moisture Boost Daily Restoring Complex SPF 30:
Normal to Dry Skin - Day Use
Amazingly light yet substantially moisturizing, this daytime must provides broad-spectrum sun protection plus proven antioxidants that shield skin from wrinkles.

Moisture Boost Hydrating Treatment Cream:
Normal to Dry Skin - Night Use
You'll notice an immediate radiant finish and beautiful smoothness after applying this silky-smooth, luxurious cream.
Now these next two items were the extra skin care goodies I received, that were not included in the collection. And these items come with a bit of a higher price tag than the moisture boost collection. However, these are items that are very much so WORTH every penny! And in comparison to similar products on the market, the price is very fair. ♥ These are the items that are going to help keep me looking young!

Resist C15 Super Booster ($48)
Suitable for all skin types and also appropriate for breakout-prone skin.

What makes this product unique?
Resist C15 Super Booster is a concentrated, light-as-water liquid treatment product designed to supercharge your Paula's Choice serum, or it may be used alone. A blend of 15% stabilized vitamin C (l-ascorbic acid) at a pH of 3.0, antioxidant vitamin E, ferulic acid, and peptides repairs visible signs of aging and stimulates collagen production for smoother, brighter, and firmer skin. Vitamin C also helps protect skin from environmental damage as it evens your skin tone. You'll see dramatically younger, healthier, and more radiant skin in weeks!

This booster is amazing - I have tried several Vitamin C serums in the past and am always please. But this one honestly takes the cake! Its the best I have ever tried. 

Resist Anti-Aging Eye Cream ($32)
All Skin Types
What makes this product unique?
Resist Anti-Aging Eye Cream is a gentle, fragrance-free, exquisitely rich eye treatment that works to steadily improve multiple signs of aging, including dryness, sun damage and loss of firmness.

I have not used this eye cream as long as I have used the other products, because I had been using another eye cream that I was reviewing. However I have high hopes for it. If it performs as great as the other Paula's Choice products, I know its going to be amazing. I have used it just a couple times and really like it so far. Its very rich and creamy and perfect for my eyes!
Overall I am extremely impressed! Since using these products, my skin has been radiant, glowing, and looking the best it has in a long time. Not only am I impressed with the products themselves, but brand as a whole! In addition to the free skin care consultation, their website has a full encyclopedia of advice for every type of skin care concern! Other pretty amazing things about the Paula’s Choice brand is that they offer a 100% Money Back Guarantee (within 60 days), they do not test on animal and do not use irritating dyes or fragrances! So much YES!!

Have you ever tried Paula's Choice products before? If so, what was your experience? I'd love to hear your thoughts and what products were suggested for you. This is actually my first time every using Paula's Choice products and now I am hooked. ♥ For those of you who have not tried - what are you waiting for!?
