Paula’s Choice Malaysia PC4Men Skincare Review

So Paula’s Choice is a popular skincare brand that has been used, reviewed and recommended by famous beauty YouTubers like Wayne Goss and Tati Westbrook. So I was elated when I was sent these products to be reviewed. I don’t commonly do skincare reviews but I do realise it is something that inevitably comes with being a beauty blogger. The other thing I would like to say is that I don’t usually review products with a gender specification. Men can wear makeup too darling!

However………

This is a skincare line dedicated to men.

This skincare line is the PC4Men by Paula’s Choice.

The three products that were sent to me.

Step 1: Cleansing (PC4Men Face Wash)

The cleanser is like a clear gel. Scentless.

It doesn't really foam up. If you have used the Cetaphil cleanser you'd know what I am talking about.

Pros:

Does the job of properly cleansing the face; lives up to its claims.

Leaves the skin feeling soft.

Does not strip the skin of moisture.

 

Cons:

NONE! Seriously, none!

 

Rating: 9.2/10

Highest rating. I LOVE this cleanser!

Note: I am one of those person that do not like the feeling of tight, overtly cleansed skin. If you know that feeling you get when using soap on the skin…., I hate that feeling… so this cleanser was a dream to use.

 

Step 2: Day cream (PC4Men Daytime Protect)

Pros:

Does not leave a white cast.

Does not feel heavy on the skin.

Absorbs easily; no fuss product.

 

Cons:

It did initially cause a tiny bit of burning on my skin so do be wary of this.

 

Rating: 8.5/10

It works and doesn’t leave a white cast, even on my deep coloured skin.

 

Step 3: Leave on exfoliant (PC4Men Soothe + Smooth)

Serum like treatment.

It is straight up liquid. Like water. No added fragrance but due to the presence palmitoyl compounds it does smell a tiny bit like coconut.

It is straight up liquid. Like water. No added fragrance but due to the presence palmitoyl compounds it does have a odour; not necessarily bad though).

I was directed by the skincare consultant at Facial Room Malaysia to use it at night by applying and patting it into the skin. It also says on the bottle it can be used like an after shave. I’ve used it both ways to good results.

 

Pros:

Absorbs well into the skin.

Face feels plumper.

Definitely helps reduce acne red bumps.

 

Cons:

I wasn’t really a big fan of the smell.

Because it is so liquid, it is prone to a tiny bit of spillage.

 

Rating: 8.5/10

I loved how my skin felt when I used this!

 

Before and after comparisons

Before

After

My skin looks more plump and hydrated. Excuse the slight oiliness because the before picture was taken right after a shower and so I was not as greasy as the after picture…

This comparison is the lines on my forehead which was a real surprise to me too! Another thing I noticed is the reduction of pigmented spots on my forehead. Look again!

All in all I love these range of products!

    • Thank you so much! 😀
      It’s a fairly easy to use line, this PC4Men which I think most men would appreciate. Generally speaking, men don’t have the patience for multiple steps in their getting ready process let alone their skincare.

  1. I think it’s kind of silly to have skincare just catering to men… but I guess men’s skin is typically is thicker and oilier than women? In general? 😕
    The sunscreen looks nice – I’m guessing it’s a chemical sunscreen. That might be why it stung your skin.
    I looked up the ingredients in that Soothe & Smooth and it’s basically BHA + AHA + hyalouric acid.
    Glad you noticed a difference in your skin from using these. I do love Paula’s Choice exfoliating products (BHA & AHA) as well as her Vitamin C booster serum.
    What a nice giveaway to Malaysian readers! 🙂

    • Thicker, yes, oilier, not necessarily. I think men’s skin tend to have larger pores and facial hair needs to be taken into consideration as well. However, I agree with you that skincare for men is silly but I can see the rationale in it. Generally speaking, I think the label men’s skincare is just to convince men to use skincare; fundamentally I doubt there’s much of a difference in terms of the product itself.
      You’re perhaps right about the sunscreen…
      Yup, BHA and AHA are antioxidants and hyaluronic acid aids repair…
      Owh thanks Stashy… Malaysian readers do make up more that half my page views…
