Paula’s Choice Skincare products are specifically formulated to be non-irritating with ingredients that have a purpose for skincare, all with a 100% money back guarantee. While the company offers products for all types of skin as well as cosmetics, this Paula’s Choice review highlights the best products for oily or combination skin or summer skincare when the heat is on. I’ve personally tried these products and continue to use them myself for great looking skin in the summer and all year long.
Keeping your skin clear and toned can be a challenge when summer heat opens your pores and increases oil production.
While Paula’s Choice products are priced mid-range for skincare products and aren’t inexpensive, a little goes a long way and the ingredients are of the highest quality with no fillers added just for the sake of bulking up the product. You’ll find a complete ingredient listing for each product on the website with links to what the ingredient do for your skin. Each product also has honest user reviews, whether they are positive or not.

Paula’s Choice Products for Summer and Oily Skin
- Skin Balancing Pore-Reducing Toner contains antioxidants and anti-inflammatory ingredients to tone down redness, refresh and lightly moisturize your skin. While it’s supposed to reduce enlarged pores, I’m not sure I get that result, but I use it daily all year-round morning and before bed and it really helps to keep my skin clear and toned.
- Earth Sourced Antioxidant Enriched Moisturizer is a very light moisturizer that drenches your skin with antioxidants to keep it healthy and to repair damage while not creating an oil slick. It’s so gentle that it’s recommended for babies, but contains no SPF so I don’t recommend it for daytime use.
- Resist Super Light Wrinkle Defense is a mineral-based moisturizer with SPF 30 sunscreen to prevent sun damage. It leaves a matte texture on skin, so it’s great for wearing on its own or under makeup in the summer. The Paula’s Choice Resist line addresses both oily skin and wrinkles and all products in this line have a beautiful, weightless texture.
If you happen to forget your sunscreen and burn, Paula’s Choice Clinical Instant Calm Advanced Redness Relief with green tea, colloidal oatmeal and willow bark can help your skin heal. This toner can be used on the face or body to reduce inflammation and the redness that goes along with it. Clinical Instant Calm Advanced Redness Relief also reduces redness from acne, shaving and other types of hair removal, razor burn and mosquito and other insect bites.
Banish Zits and Acne
If you struggle with acne in the summer or anytime of year, Paula’s Choice Clear product line works better than Pro-Active. Family members and I have used the entire product line over the past four years, and I still regularly use Clear Regular Strength Anti-Redness Exfoliating Solution With 2% Salicylic Acid and Clear Regular Strength Daily Skin Clearing Treatment.
The ingredients in Paula’s Choice Clear line dissolve oil while remaining gentle on skin, remove dead skin cells, exfoliate, reduce redness and kill acne-causing bacteria. Eighty-nine percent of customers using the Clear Regular Strength Two Week Trial pack with the cleanser, toner and blemish treatment would recommend it to a friend. There are extra strength Clear products for really tough acne, but I don’t recommend it unless it’s needed and used with an oil free moisturizer.
