Orders & Returns
Once an order is marked as “Fulfilled”, this means that it has been successfully processed by the Team and will be ready for shipment soon. It is not a reflection of the parcel’s delivery status.
All orders on Paula’s Choice Singapore are vetted during processing for bulk orders and unauthorized reselling. Orders of such nature will be automatically canceled and we may provide notifications prior to cancellation but are not obligated to do so. These accounts will also be exempted from our Rewards Programme.
Bulk orders and unauthorized reselling are defined as:
- An order is considered as bulk ordering when it contains more than three of the same products and/or repeated buying patterns per customer, which may represent more than normal personal usage. This applies to all our retail platforms including our website, online partner platforms (Shopee and Zalora), and retail store.
- Any sales of Paula’s Choice product outside of an Authorized Retailer, International or Domestic, not approved by Paula’s Choice Singapore, is considered unauthorized reselling.
Paula’s Choice Singapore works hard to ensure adequate stock for all of our valued customers who shop with us. Bulk orders restrict our customers’ access to products by reducing available inventory and are sometimes directly connected with unauthorized reselling.Unauthorized Reselling
Our brand reputation is built on making sure that our products are effective and work to address many skin types and concerns. Our proprietary formulas are a very important part of our business. This is why we do not allow third-party resellers to distribute our products unless approved by Paula’s Choice Singapore.
If you wish to be our authorized retailers, please drop us an email at email@example.com and our team will assist you further.International Distribution
We constantly monitor for locations that sell Paula’s Choice Skincare products outside of our Authorized Retailers. Rogue sellers not only risk selling our customers expired products or items that are not suited to that customer – but they also risk exposing our products to animal testing. Some countries have laws whereby the authorities can test products found for sale in shops, markets or online, on animals. It’s of the utmost importance to us that we don’t allow our products to enter these countries because of the risk that our products could be tested in this way, unknown by us.
Please note that all sales are final once an order has been placed. Cancellation and amendment of orders are not eligible once an order has been placed.
We are also unable to accede to “change of mind” requests.
Before submitting your order, please carefully review all order details at checkout to confirm accuracy.

On March 2018, we’ve incentivized our review system to encourage and reward consumers who provide valuable feedback on products, to help new customers better understand Paula’s Choice products before making a purchase.
However, it has come to our attention that a very small minority of customers are abusing the system by submitting spam and duplicate reviews. In order to maintain the integrity of our review system whilst keeping our rewards policy in place, we will be making one key change to reduce the number of inappropriate and unhelpful reviews, for the benefit of our loyal customers.
From 2019, all reviews will not be published automatically, and customers who submit duplicate and unhelpful reviews will not be eligible for any redemption of rewards points. Furthermore, orders made using points from illegitimate reviews and referrals will be canceled and refunded without notice. Repeat offenders will be blacklisted.
We would like to stress our commitment to transparency; Paula’s Choice never has and never will screen or delete negative and unfavorable reviews. We thank you for your patience and understanding in this matter, and hope to better serve you in the future!

Where Can I Find The Batch Code?
The batch code can be found at the crimp of the tube or at the bottom of the bottle.
You can conveniently find our PAO (Period After Opening) labels on the back of the packaging in the lower left corner.
The letter M stands for the Latin word for month and the number refers to the number of months. So, a “12M” with an open jar symbol means you should throw the product out 12 months after you’ve opened it. This is commonly known as the PAO date.
Most of our products are stable 3 years unopened and 12 months after opening. However, our Resist C15 Super Booster should be used within 3 months after opening and within 6 months from the purchase date.
The Dos & Don’ts of Making Your Products Last
Here are some easy tips for prolonging the shelf life of your products, whilst keeping your skin and body as healthy as possible.
- DO store products in a cabinet or drawer
- DO adhere to temperature requirements (e.g. 20-25 degrees Celsius)
- DO wash your hands before using products- DO tighten/secure the cap after each use
- DO consider how climate and humidity will shorten a product’s shelf life
- DO write the date of purchase in permanent ink (use a Sharpie) on the bottom or back of the package (this can be even more helpful than relying on the PAO date)
- DO toss out eye products after you’ve had an eye infection
- DON’T store your products in the refrigerator unless there are temperature requirements stated on the product packaging. Skincare formulas are designed to withstand the average fluctuations in temperature, but not long-term heat or cold storage—that means keeping your products in your fridge when you do not have to, reduces their lifespan and stability.
- DON’T store products in direct sunlight (e.g. don’t keep them on a sunny windowsill)
- DON’T store products in damp and/or moist areas (e.g. bathrooms where you take hot showers often)- DON’T share your products with others
- DON’T add water or saliva to thin out or remoisten products
- DON’T forget to clean the cap or lid if you drop it on the floor. Use soap and water or rubbing alcohol and dry thoroughly before replacing.
What Is The Exact Percentage Of An Ingredient Found In Paula’s Choice Products?
Unlike most cosmetic companies, Paula’s Choice provides extensive information for each of our products on www.PaulasChoice.com, including published research showing what the ingredients we use can do for your skin. If you need help locating that information, please let us know.
Both Paula and our product development team hope you understand that the exact concentration of our cosmetic ingredients is something we can’t reveal. Our proprietary formulas are a critical part of our business, and all other available information are on our product pages and product packaging.
Although Paula has criticized other companies in the past for not revealing percentages, this is related to AHA or BHA exfoliants, or in cases where a marketed key ingredient is present only in a tiny amount. Otherwise, we respect each company’s right to their proprietary formulas.
Of course, we do provide exact percentages of those active ingredients required by the FDA to be listed on the ingredient label.
Aside from any one ingredient, Paula would also like you to know that every single one of our products contain a cocktail of beneficial ingredients that address the complicated needs of every skin care concern. If you have other Paula’s Choice questions, please let us know and we will do our best to assist you. We sincerely appreciate your understanding.
Does Paula’s Choice offer samples?
We do carry travel-sized variants for some of our products, which is a great way to test them out effectively.
Unfortunately, Paula's Choice no longer offers samples for products, as a single use sample/sachet would not be sufficient for customers to accurately gauge if a product works for them. We would recommend at least 2 weeks of usage for visible results on skin.
I’m going on a trip, but I don’t want to put my skincare routine on hold. What should I do?
Your skin shouldn’t have to suffer without the care that it loves and needs; travel-sized items are excellent just for this reason! Selected Paula’s Choice products have travel sizes available for a nominal fee. These may be selected via the drop-down menu on the specific product page.
You may also transfer your products into travel-sized containers of your own! Just be sure that they are opaque and tightly sealed so that the product isn’t exposed to light or air.
What Do I Do If I Encounter Allergic Reactions?
All of our Paula’s Choice products are entirely well documented. The ingredients of each product are clearly listed via the product page; be sure to check against this list to ensure that the product is safe for use.
Some Necessary Troubleshooting:
If sensitisation occurs such as redness, flaking, tenderness, or drying of skin:
- These are not necessarily allergic reactions. Sometimes, your skin might not be immediately ready for products with strong actives (e.g. BHA, AHA, Retinol, Vitamin C), and starting off these products only 1-2 times a week will help to acclimatise skin to these ingredients.
- It is possible that you might have selected products that are not actually suitable for your skin. Consult with one of our friendly skincare experts via our LiveChat function on Paulaschoice.sg (bottom left) to get answers to all your skincare concerns before making a purchase. Our experts are available daily from 10.30am to 7.30pm.
- It’s important when experiencing these symptoms to isolate the usage of products in your routine and reduce the frequency of use; you might be allergic to only one product, or to a combined application of products, and not to the products themselves.
- When using treatment products with strong actives (E.g. our 1% Clinical Retinol Treatment) for the first time, apply a layer of your favourite Paula’s Choice hydrating serum or night moisturiser (E.g. our Omega+ Complex Series), before applying your treatment.
- If sensitization persists, do take pictures of the skin reactions you’re facing and discontinue use. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with a detailed description of your experience, and provide us with the batch code of your product as well (usually at the bottom of bottle or top of tube).
If you have experienced an allergic reaction and would like to return or exchange a product, please fill in our Returns Form below and provide all necessary medical certification and pictures. Our customer support team will review your request to help find an appropriate solution.
Do you test on animals?
No. Paula’s Choice has never tested on animals at any stage of product development and never will. We also do not contract with any third parties to conduct animal testing on our behalf. We are also Leaping Bunny certified.
Are Paula’s Choice products vegan, or do any of them contain animal by-products?
We’re happy to inform you that the majority of Paula’s Choice products contain no animal-derived ingredients. In addition, our Product Development Team has made the commitment to source non-animal derived ingredients whenever possible for new products, or when our existing products undergo a formulary update.
Some of our current skincare or makeup products contain beeswax derived from beehives, lanolin derivatives and a few others indicated below. If a product does not appear on the below list, it is free of any animal-derived ingredients.
Products that contain lanolin or cholesterol (derived from sheep’s wool):
- Lip & Body Treatment Balm
- MOISTURE BOOST Hydrating Treatment Cream
- Moisture Renewal Oil Booster
- SKIN BALANCING Pore Reducing Toner
Products that contain beeswax:
- Calm Restoring Moisturizer (Normal/Dry)
Products that contain hydrolyzed silk (from spent cocoons):
- Peptide Booster
Products that contain sea whip extract (from marine invertebrate):
- Skin Perfecting BHA 9
- SKIN BALANCING Oil-Absorbing Mask
- RESIST Ultra-Light Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum with Hyaluronic Acid
- CALM Repairing Serum
- RESIST Anti-Aging Eye Cream
- CALM Soothing Toner (Oily/Combination)
Our C15 Super Booster, 10% Niacinamide Booster, Peptide Booster, and Moisture Renewal Oil Booster come packaged with a bottle and a separate dropper. Unscrew the black or white cap on the bottle slowly and do not shake prior to opening. Insert the dropper into the bottle and it is good to go!Using our C15 Super Booster and 10% Niacinamide Booster
Our C15 Super Booster and 10% Niacinamide Booster come in a yellow serum upon opening. Ensure to tighten the dropper cap tightly after every use and store them in a cool and dry environment.
Please feel free to reach out to us via Live Chat on our website if you have any questions.
Some of our products use an airless pump technology. Airless pump dispensers utilize a vacuum system to dispense and keep the product within the container fresh. Airless packaging helps to keep air and contaminants out of the product, which enhances the formula’s stability and effectiveness.
When using your product for the first time, you may need to “prime” the dispenser. There is a disk that pushes the product to the top which can become stuck, and you may need to bang the bottom of the bottle 3-4 times on a flat-hard surface to loosen the disk, then pump the dispenser slowly about 15-20 times upside down. After it starts pumping you can pump right side up as normal.
If the dispenser stops working at any time, simply repeat the “priming” step. We do not recommend attempting to dismantle the package. Please note that there is not supposed to be a “straw” in the packaging. If you only opened it once and were able to put it back together, the product should still be effective as long as it wasn’t exposed to air for a very long period of time.
You may notice from time to time that the shade can vary on your C15, especially after use. One of the challenges of having an irritant-free line is that we cannot use coloring agents or dyes to ensure a precise, consistent color from batch to batch. Because of this, there can be color variations with some of our products. Since judging color can be subjective, we have provided a color swatch below that shows the acceptable range of colors when used within three months after opening, and six months unopened.
If your C15 Super Booster past its expiration and the color and texture have changed to a dark brown with a thick texture, it is best to replace the product.
Upon opening, it has to be used within three months and placed in a cool and dry environment.
We strongly discourage stocking up of products so as to ensure that the products are kept fresh and stable for maximum effectiveness.
