Brand Overview

Paula's Choice Peptide Booster promises to "unlock firmer-looking skin", and thanks to its stellar mix of highly-concentrated peptides, that really can happen, along with several other benefits.

Dispensed via dropper, this booster's silky-fluid consistency can easily be mixed with your go-to serum/moisturizer, or it can be applied directly to skin. The lightweight formula is compatible with all skin types and absorbs weightlessly for an imperceptible finish.

The formula is centered around eight research-backed peptides that target different concerns, from lack of firmness to fine lines, wrinkles, rough texture, and discolorations. It's an intriguing combination of lab-engineered peptides that can precisely target several age-related skin concerns, and peptides work perfectly with other "ageless" ingredients like retinol.

The benefits are further amplified by supportive skin-replenishing ingredients and hydrating amino acids that help smooth fine lines and give skin an overall healthier tone (think baby-fresh skin). In typical fashion, Paula's Choice also included soothing agents to make the fragrance-free formula extra gentle.

If you've been intrigued by peptides, this highly concentrated booster is a great way to see what they can do for your skin. (Hint: We think you're going to like it.)

Pros:
  • Concentrated peptides, backed by research for improving firmness, uneven skin and wrinkles.
  • Supportive skin-replenishing ingredients and hydrating amino acids amplify the anti-aging benefits.
  • Soothing, silky-fluid texture suits all skin types.
  • Fragrance free.
Cons:
  • None.
Jar Packaging: No
Tested on animals: No

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.
