How to use
Defense Cleanser - Travel Size
Use morning and evening. Splash the face and eyes generously with water. Apply a small amount of cleanser to your face using vigorous yet gentle circular motions. Rinse well. Repeat or use with a clean washcloth to remove heavy makeup.
Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant - Travel Size
Apply once or twice daily after cleansing and toning. Lightly soak a cotton pad and apply over the entire face, including the eye area (avoid the lower lash line and eyelids). Do not rinse. For daytime, follow with a moisturiser that contains a broad-spectrum sunscreen rated SPF 30 or greater.
Clinical 0.3% Retinol + 2% Bakuchiol Treatment
Apply a small amount in the evening over the face and neck to cleansed skin. Avoid the delicate skin around the eyes. Limit initial use to three evenings per week, then gradually increase frequency to every other evening and finally every evening as tolerated by your skin. When first using this product we suggest that you do not use it at the same time as your AHA or BHA exfoliant. If you would like to use both, apply one in the morning and the other in the evening. Monitor your skin’s response and if no sensitivity occurs this product can be applied at the same time as your exfoliant.
Resist Anti-Aging Moisturiser SPF 50
Apply as the last step in your morning skincare routine. Allow a moment to dry before applying makeup.

Good to know before you start:
It is best to gradually build up use of a BHA product, starting to use it a couple of times a week only. If there is no adverse reaction, this may be increased to every other day at night and then, if you wish, every night. Some people increase use to twice daily (morning and night), but it really all depends on the condition of your skin. You need to experiment a bit to see what suits you best. During the day, always use a moisturiser with a broad-spectrum sunscreen rated SPF 30 or greater. Your skin will in fact be slightly more sensitive to sunlight when using an exfoliant, so the chance of sunburn and sun damage is slightly higher.
The Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant feels a bit sticky/greasy on my face. Why is that?
If the BHA is feeling sticky, you are probably using too much product. The average amount needed is the size of a small coin, and it’s best to apply it in a thin layer. The ‘greasy’ feel can be attributed to the high levels of glycol in this product (glycol helps the BHA penetrate the surface layers of skin and also works as a water-binding agent). If you live in a humid, moist climate, this effect will be more pronounced and, if too much product is used, can create a ‘greasy’ feel on the skin.
What makes this cleanser different to other Paula's Choice cleansers?
This water-soluble cleanser turns from a gel into a cream when mixed with water. It gently removes impurities, makeup and excess oil, while neutralising skin-dulling pollutants. It is ideal for all skin types, and is designed for anyone concerned with pollution and free radical damage.
What is Bakuchiol?
Bakuchiol is a vegan ingredient found in the leaves and seeds of the Psoralea corylifolia plant. It’s said to be a natural alternative to retinol, but it’s important to keep in mind that “alternative” does not mean “equivalent”. Scientific research has shown that bakuchiol delivers some of the same benefits as retinol, but both retinol and bakuchiol also have unique benefits. When looking for bakuchiol skincare products such as a bakuchiol serum or cream you may want to choose formulas that also contain retinol so you can benefit from both of these ingredients instead of choosing between them.
How does bakuchiol work?
Research shows that the natural anti-inflammatory properties of bakuchiol makes it easier for the skin to tolerate retinol. It is one of the rare ingredients that makes retinol more effective by stabilising its action. Bakuchiol cosmetics can even work better than products which contain ingredients that are usually used for this, such as vitamin E.
