Trial Kits are a great way to test out a range of new products without having to buy them all full size - Christmas time is the best time to get these sets because every brand comes out with their own version of sets for the holidays!
Paula's Choice is offering quite a few sets for the holidays this year; here is a look at one of the offerings:
Paula's Choice Resist Anti-Aging Trial Kit for Normal to Oily Skin (Wrinkles and Breakouts) ~ $30.00 US. This two-week travel kit for our RESIST Collection for Normal to Oily Skin is the perfect introduction to the anti-aging essentials that help improve the appearance of fine lines, loss of firmness, uneven skin tone, enlarged pores, dehydration, and other signs of environmental damage. Convenient travel sizes allow you to experience each formula’s texture and performance.
These sets are a great way to try out all the products - or a great value if you plan on travelling and need smaller sized products! These should last about 2 weeks!
Here is a closer look at the 4 products included in this set:
Paula's Choice Resist Perfectly Balanced Cleanser ~ 1 oz for $2.97 (full sized is 6.4 oz for $19.00). This cream-to-foam cleanser gently removes makeup and excess surface oils without causing dryness or a tight feeling. Helps replenish the moisture levels of oily to combination skin.
I like foaming cleansers as long as they do not dry out my skin - this one sounds like the goal is to have no dryness and replenish moisture levels in the skin. While this is a 2 week trial, this product could have been offered a little bigger because it does come with a lower value.
Paula's Choice Resist Daily Pore-Refining Treatment With 2% BHA ~ 1 oz for $11.00 (full sized is 3 oz for $33.00). Formulated for daily use, it refines the surface of skin and pores like no other product you’ve ever used. Advanced, antioxidant-peptide blend also helps defend against environmental stressors.
This product is applied after a cleanser and toner and is meant to help give skin a younger, smoother, and brighter appearance!
Paula's Choice Resist Anti-Aging Clear Skin Hydrator ~ 0.5 oz for $9.71 (full size is 1.7 oz for $33.00). An advanced complex of vital ingredients for skin, including vitamin C and niacinamide, designed to target uneven skin tone, wrinkles, loss of firmness, hydration, and other specific concerns for those with oily to combination, aging skin.
This is a daily moisturizer - you can use this in the morning or evening!
Paula's Choice Resist Youth-Extending Daily Hydrating Fluid SPF 50 ~ 0.5 oz for $8.25 (full size is 2 oz for $33.00). Lightweight broad-spectrum sun protection in an antioxidant-enriched fluid that helps fight the signs of aging and prevents premature aging of skin for those with oily to combination skin. It also balances hydration, while its antioxidants further defend against environment stress.
I received a mattifying fluid instead of a hydrating fluid, but I think it is a similar product (or perhaps the same?) This is recommended as the last step in your morning skincare routine - I'm glad that there is an SPF 50 as this is great every day under makeup or alone!
This set came with 4 items with a total value of $32.18 (retails for $30, but currently on sale for $20!). This is a good way to try these 4 products in travel size! As always, all Paula's Choice products are fragrance free, clinically proven to non-irritating, and never tested on animals!
