My choice? Paula’s Choice 10% Niacinamide Booster

paulas-choice-10-naicinamide-treatmentAs we age, some things get smaller and some get bigger. What gets smaller? Height. Lip size. Short term memory. What gets bigger? Nose. Feet. Pores. I can deal with the nose and feet, but bigger pores?  Ugh.
I turn to Paula’s Choice over and over for really excellent skin care that is effective and affordable. One of her newest products is the 10% Niacinamide Booster ($42). My first bottle was sent as a press sample, but I used that all up and have already bought another. This is great stuff that makes the rest of my skin care even better.
Paula's Choice 10% Niacinamide BoosterHere’s why your pores get larger as you age: skin naturally sheds built up oil and dirt. When we are young, this process happens pretty quickly, so our skin looks almost as if it doesn’t even have pores. As we get older, especially after age 30, this process slows down so dirt and oil stays inside our pores longer. The increased collection of dirt and oil causes pores to stretch out and become enlarged. Exfoliating on a regular basis helps your skin’s shedding process, but even with the most diligent skin care maintenance pores become enlarged.
Enter Paula’s Choice 10% Naicinamide Booster.
Paula's Choice 10% Niacinamide Booster
 The 10% Naicinamide Booster does four main things: improves uneven skin tone, reduces the appearance of pore size, improves skin texture, and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Niacinamide is a form of Vitamin B3. It’s a very exciting skin care ingredient that has been scientifically proven to seriously shrink enlarged pores as well as wrinkles. What is really cool about this product is that it’s a super lightweight serum that can be used alone or added to another serum or moisturizer. I put a few drops in my treatment serum every morning and every night and I am truly impressed with my results!
Here is why you want this:
  • Supercharges any serum or moisturizer to dramatically minimize pores
  • Helps strengthen skin’s elasticity, allowing enlarged pores to shrink back to a normal size
  • Helps regulate sebum production (especially for those with oily/blemish-prone skin)
  • Helps promote a more even skin texture and overall skin tone

Paula's Choice 10% Niacinamide BoosterNot only does this product have the highest percentage of Niacinamide available in Paula’s Choice skin care products, it also has other terrific ingredients including licorice root, green tea, and oat-derived antioxidants for fighting free radicals. It is a fantastic boost to any skin care product, and you will notice a difference within one week.

I love many Paula’s Choice products, and the 10% Niacinamide is an especially impressive addition to an already fantastic line. Regardless of what other products you use, I highly recommend you pick this one up to boost your skin care results and shrink those pores.

    I love Paula’s Choice skincare! I haven’t tried any of her boosters yet but I have used her 1% retinol. The one product that has made the biggest change in my skin so far is her BHA leave-on exfoliant – any of them! I no longer have blackheads and the few breakouts I used to get are gone. Thanks for the review!
