Giveaway! My Paula's Choice favorites ($149 value)

Because the people who read my blog are so awesome and have clicked my Paula's Choice referral link so many times, I've been able to try and to review a ton of different products from that brand over the past year. I have also been able to keep using my favorite skin care products even when I've been unemployed or underemployed, which is something I really fucking appreciate. So in gratitude, I wanted to give some back. I'm going to send my five favorite Paula's Choice products to the winner of this giveaway.

The prize will include:

2% BHA Liquid (reviewed here)

Skin Balancing Moisture Gel (reviewed here)

Resist Ultra-Light Antioxidant Serum (reviewed here)

Resist C15 Super Booster (reviewed here)

Tooth Whitener (reviewed here)

It's a $149 value in total.

I've chosen the things that I've found myself replacing when they run out, which I think is a good sign that they are reliable. The moisturizer and BHA I've been using for at least a decade (and that makes me feel fucking old). The tooth whitener I've been using for a few years, and the serum I just discovered last year, but I've already bought my third tube. The sort of exception is the Vitamin C serum. I'm still a little on the fence about it, but I recently did a consumer trial of a serum from another brand that I absolutely hated for over a week, and it left my skin looking really sad. When the test period was over, the Resist C15 was one of the first things I used, and my skin perked right up. It wasn't the only product I used, so who knows how responsible it was for my recovery. But technically I am on my second bottle, after using up a trial size first. Also, it seems like something lots of people would be curious to try, but nervous about shelling out the $48, so I figured it would be fun to include here.

Obviously most of these things will work best for people with skin like mine (combination leaning more toward oily than dry) - but these are the things I can vouch for. (If you are allergic to aspirin, you shouldn't use the BHA liquid - but you can enter anyway and we can work out a different option if you win. That will be the only exception I'll make. Any other winner will get this set.)

To enter, you only have to provide your email address using the gadget below so I can contact you if you win. If you want additional entries, there are other options, but they aren't required. One winner will be chosen at random from all the entries. Once the winner has been announced and contacted, they will have 48 hours to respond with their mailing address. If I don't hear anything in 48 hours, I'll pick someone else. (Well, I'll let the gadget pick someone for me.) I will have the prizes shipped to you directly from Paula's Choice (i.e. they will be brand new, not the products pictured above that I have here at home). That means I can send things either to US or Canadian addresses.

This giveaway is in no way officially affiliated with Paula's Choice. They don't know I'm doing it. It's not meant to promote Paula's Choice. I just like some of their products - you can see reviews of things I like and things I don't like under this tag.


  1. This is great! Thanks so much for your generosity (and expletive-laden reviews, naturally ;) )
