Paula’s Choice Radiance Renewal Mask and Brightening Essence Review


Are you ready for a brighter, more radiant complexion? Get a natural healthy glow with these two anti-aging products from Paula’s Choice!

Radiance Renewal Mask ~ $36.00USD

The Paula’s Choice Radiant Renewal Mask is an overnight brightening mask that claims to restore radiance and visibly improve your skin tone all while providing skin-softening hydration.


My first impression was that I really enjoyed the air tight pump packaging as well as the overall pretty appearance of the bottle.

The texture of the mask is very silky and applies just as a moisturizer. One pump is just the right amount to cover the entire face which I really like as there is no waste or worry that you’ve applied too much.

The directions read to use at-least once a week or every night for optimal results. So I went ahead and have been using the Radiance Renewal Mask for two weeks now, every night.

The directions also state to use as the last step in your skincare routine…I was a bit confused whether or not I was to apply this over top of my nightly moisturizer or as a replacement of this final step. I figured that applying two hydrating creams would be too much for my oily skin so I opted to use the mask as a replacement to my moisturizer/night cream.

The first few times I used the mask, I noticed my skin was luminous in the morning. Not greasy or anything like that, just a nice healthy glow to the skin. As I continued to use it, I really started to notice how my skin tone was improving. My skin just looked so much more healthy and hydrated and overall more even looking. I honestly think it has even faded my dark circles a bit!

Resist Brightening Essence ~ $42.00USD

The Resist Brightening Essence is an anti-aging essence chocked full of antioxidants to help even skin tone, and revitalize a dull complexion for brighter more radiant skin.

Paulas Choice Resist Brightening Essence Review

The Paula’s Choice Resist Brightening Essence is to be applied after toning and before your serums and moisturizers. Similar the consistency of water, this light weight essence feels soothing on the face and absorbs quickly while leaving not a trace behind.

I have been using it in my morning and nighttime routine along with the Radiance Renewal Mask and as I mentioned before, I am really impressed with the results. The bottom line is that that I find myself having great skin days more often than not. My skin simply looks Better. Healthier. Plus, my sensitive skin had absolutely no reaction or breakouts so i’m super pumped about that.

I’m really looking forward to trying more of Paula’s Choice products and would love to create an entire routine from this brand and really see want it can do for my skin as these two products have got me really excited!

  4. I love Paula’s Choice! My top 3 from her right now are: 10% AHA Weekly Resurfacing, C15 Booster, and her eye cream. Amazing stuff that don’t break the bank. I’m itching to try these 2 new products – they seem like great all-rounders.


  5. I have been using Paula’s products for years and I do like them. I swear by her Skin Perfecting 2% BHA which I use daily. I also use the 10% AHA 1X per week. I use her 2 Vitamin C products, the Hyaluronic Acid Booster which I love. I also use a lot of her Resist products. To me it is best skincare out there. Thanks for great review on the Renewal Mask and Brightening Essence.. I have not tried yet but I probably will be after this review.


  6. Thanks for the review. I have never tried any of Paula’s products, although I have read a couple of her books. Just curious as to where you purchased her products? Her website? Thanks again.
