Brand Overview

The focus of Paula's Choice Skincare's Hyaluronic Acid Booster is, as the name implies, supplying skin with a "boost" of ultra-hydrating, wrinkle-smoothing hyaluronic acid. This contains two forms of the ingredient—sodium hyaluronate and pure hyaluronic acid—a beneficial combo because each penetrates different layers of skin to improve moisture content and restore skin on multiple levels. The result? Plumped, more supple, hydrated skin.

The benefits don't just stop at hyaluronic acid—this formula also contains a blend of soothing and skin-replenishing ingredients, such as ceramides and phospholipids, to help skin lock in moisture. Coupled with the skin-restoring ingredient adenosine, you have a targeted solution to help quickly restore damaged or dehydrated skin.

Housed in an opaque pump bottle, the water-based, gel texture blends smoothly on skin and dries quickly. This fragrance-free formula is compatible with all skin types, including those with sensitive skin, and as with all Paula's Choice Boosters, this can be mixed with your serum or moisturizer or used alone. We found Hyaluronic Acid Booster layers beautifully with other treatment products or moisturizers, including eye-area products. If you have dehydrated or dry skin with fine lines and wrinkles, this is an excellent booster to consider adding to your routine.

Paula's Choice Skincare At-A-Glance


Paula's Choice Skincare was established in 1995 when best-selling beauty author and consumer advocate Paula Begoun (known as The Cosmetics Cop) decided to develop her own products.

As a natural evolution of Paula's personal mission to help consumers find the best products for their skin, the line has grown into an extensive range of skincare and makeup products that are formulated to meet the needs of almost every skin type and skin concern imaginable, from acne to wrinkles.

Paulas Choice Skincare relies on published research where available to discover the best ingredients for skin. Stable packaging is another feature of the brand, using innovative, opaque, and air-tight or air-restrictive components that keep antioxidants and other light- and air-sensitive ingredients from breaking down. The line is also 100% fragrance-free.

Disclosure: Paula Begoun is the creator of Beautypedia and founder of Paula's Choice Skincare products. Reviewing thousands of skincare and makeup products over the past 30 years, both on this site and in her best-selling books, Paula's mission has always been to help consumers find the best products possible for their skin. The Beautypedia Team proudly and unequivocally maintains this commitment. In addition, The Beautypedia Team reviews all products using the same rating standards and criteria, whether it is a Paula's Choice product or another brand.

Why are Paula's Choice Skincare products rated highly? The Paula's Choice Skincare Team would not launch a product unless it was worthy of a high rating from The Beautypedia Team. Paula and The Beautypedia Team were researching and reviewing products long before Paula's Choice Skincare ever existed and consumers were constantly requesting a skincare brand that met all of Beautypedias criteria. As a result, The Paula's Choice Skincare Team was created and uses the same research and criteria to formulate Paula's Choice products as The Beautypedia Team uses to review products.
