~ New Year ~

New Skincare Routine! 

Paula's Choice
RESIST Perfectly Balanced Foaming Cleanser
Cleanser for Normal/Oily/Combination Skin!
RRP: $30.00 (190ml)
To begin with I will just let your know straight off the bat one of the most convenient aspects
of this product which I enjoyed the most and that is that this Foaming Cleanser not only
cleanses your skin without stripping it of it's natural oils and pH balance, it also removes makeup!
I usually remove my makeup before cleansing, however with this product I get to skin a step and
save a bit of time, oh so precious time! :) (Where does it all go anyway?!)

This generous size pump bottle contains a creamy, white liquid which quickly lathers into a
non scented foam when applied to your face which should be dampened with luke warm water
prior to activate the product and open up the pores for best results whilst cleansing.

I found this product very easy to use and very effective when followed up with the Pore-
Refining Treatment and Daily Mattifying Fluid.

My skin has remained clear and looking smoother, more radiant and a whole lot less tired than
it really is! 

Paula's Choice 
RESIST Daily Pore-Refining Treatment
2% BHA
Exfoliant for Normal/Oily/Combination Skin!
RRP: $38.00 (88ml)
This is a very interesting exfoliating product because not only do you use it more like you would
a toner. It also does not contain any kind of visible exfoliant beads or scrub!

I have always struggled with the size of the pores on my face and have tried many products promising to diminish them. Some have worked well while many haven't. This product actually does
wonders for reducing and tightening my pores, plus it also aids in the anti-ageing aspect of my skin
as well as making the whole surface feel smoother and look youthful again!

I am amazed that such a strong working product as this is actually fragrance free!
Paula's Choice products also do not believe in animal testing which I am more than happy to
help support!

So then how do you actually use this product?
As I mentioned earlier. You simply do as you would with a facial toner. (I love toner btw, they
are great for tightening pores and clearing acne!) Simply take a cotton ball, apply some of the
Daily Pore-Refining Treatment to it and swipe all over the face and neck. This stuff is gentle enough
to use around your eyes, but not over them of course or you risk getting product into your eyes which
is never a good thing! Make sure your skin is clean before using and it is recommended to follow up
and apply your favourite moisturiser afterwards before applying makeup.

Taking this extra step into my new year's skincare routine I believe has really been worth while
in nurturing my skin into it's early 30's!

Paula's Choice
RESIST Youth-Extending Daily Mattifying Fluid
SPF 15
Moisturiser for Normal/Oily/Combination Skin!
RRP: $35.00 (60ml)
Being Summer in QLD, it is imperative to protect your skin from the harmful sun's UV rays daily!
I have always been sun concious and rarely ever suffer from sunburn. I once burnt quite badly when
I was about 14-15 and living in Cairns, the sun was as you would expect in TNQ, completely
unforgiving! So I in turn learnt my lesson the hard way as it make me feel quite physically ill 
and I never let myself burn like that ever again!

Products such as this which contain some kind of SPF in them are quite common how a days
and so really there is no excuse not to slip, slop, slap when it is so easy.

This product is easily applied after cleansing and toning and before makeup and absorbs quickly
without leaving a greasy residue. I appreciate the mattyfying effect as even though I classify my
skin as being 'normal', it can still gain that a little more than a 'dewy' effect by the end of a long, hot,
Summer's day! I have found my skin to remain looking matte and fresh throughout the day when
I've applied this in the morning. So it is quite amazing that it moisturises and protects your skin
from the sun whilst still not feeling heavy or slick!

Fragrance free and non irritable, this whole Paula's Choice RESIST skincare range helps to
prevent the visible signs of aging and minimise pore appearance. Two of my top skincare
concerns sorted!
