Get 20% off + Free Shipping to US and Canada at Paula's Choice (And What I'm Buying)


Thanks so much to longtime contributor Isu Hapz (@isu1989 on Instagram) for this tip!

Right now on the Paula's Choice website HERE, you can get 20% off your order + free shipping on all orders to US and Canada with code IPSY2016. (UPDATE: thanks to reader anneemull for confirming that this code expires on 10/31!)

PLEASE NOTE: the only items that I'm seeing are NOT valid with this code are travel-size products, because those are already discounted to $9 right now. In other words, you will not receive an additional 20% off travel size items.

WHAT I'M BUYING: if you're wondering why I chose the picture of Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid for this post, that's because this is the product I intend to purchase with this discount! It has been on my wish list since I read this Instagram post from my pal Chris (@tophcam on Instagram). By the way, if you don't already read his skincare blog or watch his YT channel, he is so informative and he's an absolute sweetheart (loving his recent skincare dupe video here). Actually, that video is quite timely because he recommends the Paula's Choice Resist C15 Super Booster as a more affordable alternative to Drunk Elephant C-Firma Day Serum (definitely watch his video for the full explanation). If I didn't already buy the Drunk Elephant the last time Dermstore had a code that worked with it, I would so buy the Paula's Choice product with this discount. (By the way, just in case any of you were going to ask, I JUST started incorporating the Drunk Elephant into my skincare regimen so I can't yet comment about how it works for me).

Thanks again, Isu Hapz, for the great tip!

  2. Just want to 2nd the praise for Paula's Choice! (G, ipsy's site says the code expires 10/31.) Can't live without the C15! I usually scar easily, but if I put C15 on those spots they heal faster and without a trace. I also have cats that like to play and scratch sometimes. A few drops of C15 mixed with my lotion helps those heal amazingly too!

    1. Thank you so much for confirming that! Will update my post post!

      And what a great tip about the C15. I will totally have to remember that for when I run out of the Drunk Elephant! :)

  3. Thanks for this code, G. I've wanted to try this brand and this particular product sounds great so that's what I ordered.

  5. This is great!
    Does Nordstrom price match?
    Thanks!

    1. No. They only price-match when the sale is visible on the homepage of their competitor's website--not when it's just a code to use at checkout. Hope that helps!

  6. I use Paula's Choice 2% BHA gel. It really helps with clearing out my pores.

  7. C15 never did much for me, but I love the Clear redness relief exfoliant, and the clinical ultra rich moisturizer. I'm going to buy those two and the skin recovery toner (I had a sample pack and liked it as well).

  8. I've been using Paula's Choice for about a year. The C15 didn't do much for me, but I've been using the 1% BHA lotion which they no longer make. So, I'm switching to the 2%. Don't be shocked when you start using it if you're dry like the sahara desert! It'll go away! I'm glad I got through my terrible first month with BHA, it's really good for my skin and I have dramatically less breakouts along with much better tone.

    1. they still make a 1% BHA lotion, but they rebranded it as calm redness relief 1% BHA lotion. i think they changed the formula to make it more gentle. http://tinyurl.com/jq58kcy

  9. I just bought the clinical 1% retinol treatment a few days ago but I can always use more Paula's choice! I want to try the BHA 9 (for stubborn breakouts) and I love their moisturizers w/SPF (I'm running a little low). Thanks for letting us know about the code!

    1. The BHA 9 is amazing. I'm on my second tube and it's a staple. I like to apply the BHA and then some benzoyl peroxide on the really ugly pimples. The combo brings them to a head very quickly.

  10. I just ordered again (just ordered a few days ago too!) I got the BHA9 and the Resist super-light daily defense spf 30 for oily skin (they don't make the hydralight spf anymore ☹️) I used the current code on her website and the ipsy one and got two free. I got the two free booster deluxe samples plus the regular 3 samples and 20% w/free shipping! That's an awesome deal! Thanks for the code 🤗

    1. 007dorko,

      They say the Calm SPF for oily skin is the same formula as the Hydralight. I haven't purchased the Calm version, however, because I'm still finishing the one I have. Hopefully it really is the same!

      Delete
    2. I can confirm that this is the same formula - I was a former Hydralight user and now I use the Calm (oily) SPF with no problems.

  11. Thanks for sharing!

    I use the liquid BHA during the warmer months, and lotion BHA during the winter months. My dry cheeks like it this way, especially in the harsh New England winter months.

  12. Here's the fine print on the IPSY2016 coupon code:
    *Offer valid thru 10/31/2016. Cannot be combined with any other offers. One time use only. Cannot be applied to a previous purchase. Enter promo code at checkout. Applies to in-stock items only; no rain checks. Free standard shipping applies to US & CA only.

    I believe you can use TWO coupon codes for one order. I placed my order on the 10th and used a code to get their Berry & Bright Lip Collection for free (in addition to the IPSY2016 code).

    Here's their current promo on the site:
    2 FREE Anti-Aging Booster Travel Sizes on $50+**

  13. Thank you! I absolutely adore Paula's Choice. My favorite exfoliants are the 2% Clear BHA (regular strength) for daily use and the 4% foaming BHA for weekly use. My skin is amazing thanks to Paula! I see they just released the new brightening essence too! Now I need to go read up on that! I tried the new brightening mask already, which is an amazing overnight treatment! I get so excited for their new products. I also love her eye cream... so many favorites!

  14. PS - I bought the Niacinamide booster back in MAY and the bottle seems to still be more than half full with almost daily use! It's one of their booster products that has a water-light texture and only requires a few drops so 1oz really lasts FOREVER. I think I will buy another bottle along with the new brightening essence which, judging by the ingredients and instructions, has the same water texture. (Unlike their hyaluronic acid booster which unfortunately is a thicker texture so I would go through it super fast since the thick texture means a couple drops is equal to a whole dropper full. Now I use Hylamide's HA booster which you can find at CVS because it has a water thin texture so it lasts longer!)

  15. Hi there! Am I the only one that the IPSY code isn't working for!? I am replenishing my RESIST toner and RESIST 4% BHA exfoliant and no discount is applying (even though it says it is). I don't see any restrictions on the code, so I'm confused. Help/advise, readers!?

    ReplyDelete
  16. Thanks so much, G!! I just took this opportunity to order moisturizers that I'm running out of, and to try the 2% BHA liquid! Salicylic acid hasn't been the most helpful for me in the past, but it's been quite a few years since I've used it and those stellar reviews are intriguing!
