Sample Sunday #4 - Paula's Choice

Assalamualaikum and hello my lovely pipurrrrr!

So I received few samples from Worthee Cosmetics and I actually bought some samples to give to my customers yang purchase stuff from me so yeah. Anyways, let's just jump right into it.

NOT SPONSORED by the way.

1. Paula's Choice Earth Sourced Perfectly Natural Cleansing Gel
Link: Website, Worthee Cosmetics, Makeup Alley
Rating: 4.5/5 on PC, 3.8/5 on MA

This extremely gentle cleanser with 99% natural ingredients removes impurities and makeup, and provides a refreshed soft feel to skin with no dryness or tightness.

- For All Skin Types
- Effective face cleanser that doesn’t cause redness or dryness
- Removes impurities and build-up that occurs during the day or night
- Soft gel texture cleanses while preserving skin’s surface
- Use as the first step in your AM/PM routine

I was surprised to see the reviews are quite bad on Makeup Alley site but personally, I really love this cleanser! My face felt clean and soft and just ahhhh so fresh after using it. I don't have any issues with it. It is a quite gentle gel cleanser and ahhh I just love everything about it. This Earth Sourced range is also safe for babies, so if your babies had sensitive skin, maybe you can try this?

I'm not so sure if it actually removed my makeup since I do like double triple cleansing so... Yeah. Hahaha. I'm not so sure if I'm going to get the full size because I'm still eyeing on the Skin Balancing cleanser. LOL. I still haven't make up my mind yet!

My rating: 4/5

2. Paula's Choice Earth Sourced Purely Natural Refreshing Toner
Link: Website, Worthee Cosmetics, Makeup Alley
Rating: 4/5 on PC, 4.1/5 on MA

This antioxidant-rich toner replenishes and restores skin for a healthy, youthful glow.

- For All Skin Types
- Antioxidants shield skin & renew the surface of skin
- Rejuvenates skin, leaving it silky-smooth
- Fragrance free and all ingredients are non-irritating
- Unique liquid-gel formula soothes and reinvigorates skin
- Use twice daily after cleansing skin

EHMEGERDDDDDDD, this toner is the bomb. It has almost the same consistency as the Yves Rocher toner but lighter. It felt so good on the skin, very gentle, very refreshing. Ahhhh, I feel like buying it but I still need to think cook cook lah kan. Hahaha but this is going into my wishlist of course :D

My rating: 4.5/5

3. Paula's Choice CALM Redness Relief 1% BHA Lotion Exfoliant
Rating: 3/5 on PC, 3.7/5 on MA

Pic from here

I forgot to take a pic of the sample but whatever LOL

A completely gentle, non-abrasive, leave-on exfoliant that sheds built-up layers of dead skin to reveal the hidden radiant skin beneath. Perfect for someone with sensitive skin who wants to visibly diminish pore size and the appearance of wrinkles and ease redness.

- Extra Sensitive Skin, Redness
- For All Skin Types
- Skin-smoothing salicylic acid (BHA) provides gentle exfoliation
- Reveals glowing, hydrated skin & minimized pores from the first day
- Lightweight lotion is perfect for sensitive skin
- Use twice daily after cleansing & toning skin

This BHA lotion has a milky lotion consistency, which is quite nice considering it is for smoothing / calming the skin ya know? But unfortunately, this didn't calm my skin at all. I used it 2-3 times and every time I used it, I would get breakouts. Not cystic acne tho, but just your usual acne friend ya know. I still have few uses left, but I'm scared to try it again ya know. Wuuuu.

Oh but the best part, takde sloughing langsung! Which is good because it's quite mild on the skin. Tapi tulah. It broke me out. Uwaaa.

FYI, my skin cannot handle lotion-y type of skincare product. I don't know why. Maybe ada ingredient yang aku tak boleh pakai tapi aku taktau. Hah.

My rating: 2.5/5

4. Paula's Choice Resist Advanced Replenishing Toner
Link: Website, Worthee Cosmetics, Makeup Alley
Rating: 4.5/5 on PC, 4.1/5 on MA

A unique anti-aging milky toner rich in skin-replenishing ingredients for normal to dry skin that restores essential nutrients while defending against environmental damage.

- Anti-Aging, Wrinkles
- Best for Normal to Dry Skin
- Replenishes and revitalizes skin
- Antioxidants help defend against environmental attack
- Provides superior hydration to eliminate dryness
- Use twice daily after cleansing skin

Oh my god, this is another product that is going to be in my wishlist. I looooove how it feels on the skin, yes it has a milky consistency but it is more of a gel consistency, again just like the Yves Rocher toner. I am looking for a gel-based toner for my night time routine and I might buy this (or the Earth Sourced one) I don't know, I'm still thinking, I need to think cook cook. Damn son.

Update: I just bought the full size. No ragrets. >_<

My rating: 4.5/5

5. Paula's Choice CALM Redness Relief Toner
Link: Website, Worthee Cosmetics, Makeup Alley
Rating: 2.5/5 on PC, 3.6/5 on MA

A lightweight essential toner for sensitive skin formulated with skin-soothing ingredients to quench and revitalize dull, tired areas of skin, while gently quieting redness and significantly increasing hydration.

- Extra Sensitive Skin, Redness
- Normal to Oily Skin, Combination Skin
- Helps ease & renew reactive skin
- Antioxidants infuse skin & soothe redness
- Liquid texture provides significant non-greasy hydration
- Use twice daily after cleansing skin

This has got to be one of the most foul smelling toner I've ever come across in my life. Literally smells like air liur basi. Oh my god ni serius boleh muntah aasoidjlaskd. Whenever I applied this, I was like holy crap, cepat-cepat sapu benda lain. Luckily the scent didn't linger for that long. It is a watery toner, very lightweight but uhm, I prefer other PC toners. This one I no lyke. If you wanna try PC toners, try the other ones. Love the Skin Balancing one and the ones I mentioned above. Hahaha. Ok.

My rating: 1.5/5

6. Paula's Choice SKIN RECOVERY Hydrating Treatment Mask
Link: WebsiteWorthee CosmeticsMakeup Alley
Rating: 4.5/5 on PC, 4.1/5 on MA

A deeply hydrating face mask for dry to very dry skin that works overnight to restore a dewy, resilient, supple appearance and feeling of firmness to skin for a visibly refined complexion. Waking up to beautiful skin you can see and feel will be the ultimate in true beauty sleep.

- Extra Sensitive Skin, Redness
- Normal to Dry Skin; Dry/Very Dry Skin
- Replenishes skin for a more healthy-looking appearance
- Antioxidants and plant oils nourish skin
- Rich cream formula
- Use on cleansed skin as often as desired

I get why this hydrating mask got a pretty high rating because it is damn good. I know it got mixed reviews as well, maybe it's one of those "you either love it or hate it" but I personally like it. I can't say I love this mask because I don't really like hydrating mask yang macam ni, sheet mask yes, this type of mask macam mehhhh. I had a bad skin week few weeks ago, my skin was sunburned and I used this mask to soothe my skin and my skin was so calm afterwards. The next day, my skin was like a whole new skin ya know. My redness/sunburned memang kurang banyak and my skin wasn't as red after I used it. But I won't purchase the full size just because I feel like I could just go heavy with my moisturizer ya know? But it's good if you have dry skin, you can try this.

My rating: 4/5


So yeah. Haha. I hope you guys find this helpful in anyway.

Thank you for reading!

Stay gorgeous <3
