If you have sensitive skin that's also oily, chances are you've had trouble finding a moisturizer that fits your needs. Fortunately, Paula's Choice has you in mind with their CALM Redness Relief Moisturizer for Normal to Oily. A sheer gel-cream, it provides just enough hydration to suit those with its namesake skin type, and, like all formulas from the brand, is fragrance free.
Packaged in a plastic squeeze tube, its lightweight texture feels pleasant on skin and dries quickly without leaving a residue behind.
A look at its formula reveals that it takes its "redness relief" claims seriously. Licorice extracts, allantoin, beta-glucan and willow herb, just to name a few of its ingredients, provide both antioxidant and soothing benefits to skin. There is a good dose of these (and other) soothing ingredients contained within the CALM Redness Relief Moisturizer. What it doesn't contain are heavy oils or other emollients, which is evident from its sheer feel on skin. (So light, in fact, that it layers well under a sunscreen, or over serums and other treatments.) Of course, since this moisturizer is for sensitive, redness-prone skin, we love that it doesn't contain a single ingredient known to worsen such concerns.
Your skin will also benefit from the ample environmental protection and soothing effects of its antioxidant blend, and replenishing ingredients like sodium hyaluronate.
CALM Redness Relief Moisturizer for Normal to Oily earned its rating thanks to its formidable range of beneficial soothing and antioxidant ingredients as well as its pleasant gel texture that's ideal for its intended skin types. If you count yourself among those with oily to combination extra-sensitive skin (whether you're battling redness or a "finicky" complexion), this moisturizer may be the perfect choice for your needs.
