What's in the Paula's Choice Defense range?

  3. Paula's Choice Defense Essential Glow Moisturiser SPF 30
  4. Paula's Choice Defense Nightly Reconditioning Moisturiser

The cleanser

This gel cleanser turns into a cream when mixed with water; lathering up to create a foam which rinses away all pollutants and aggressors.

As it lathers up, it makes for a satisfying cleanse, and helps to remove all makeup easily without the need for going in a second time.

The cleanser is enriched with a triple superfood complex of soy, liquorice and green tea, which helps to neturalise surface pollutants and repair the skin's natural barrier.

The purifier

For anyone with slightly blemish-prone or clogged skin, the Defense Antioxidant Pure Purifier is a perfect addition to a skincare routine.

The serum contains both salicylic and azelaic acid to unblock pores, remove impurities, smooth and brighten the skin. Plus, the addition of vitamin C and niacinamide help to shield against damaging environmental pollutants.

Fragrance and colourant-free, it is suitable for those with sensitive skin too.

The glow moisturiser

A moisturiser with SPF 30 for daytime use, the Essential Glow Moisturiser contains over 12 antioxidants derived from plant and vitamins to help shield the skin against environmental pollution.

The lightweight cream also helps to defend against blue light damage, so is perfect if you're working in front of a computer all day.

Lightweight, it also gives a lovely radiance to the skin, making it a great primer before makeup.

The night-time moisturiser

As you sleep, your skin repairs itself from the day's damage, meaning it's really important to use the right products.

The Paula's Choice Defense Nightly Reconditioning Moisturiser contains 8 superfood-derived antioxidants, which help to strengthen the skin, alongside the brand's exclusive anti-pollution factor to protect the skin from further damage.

It feels super lightweight yet offers incredible hydration, so is perfect as we head into the colder, winter months.
