Moisture Boost One Step Face Cleanser, for Normal to Dry Skin is a water-soluble cleanser with a milky texture and low lather. It works beautifully to remove all types of makeup and rinses without a trace of residue, leaving your skin clean and soft. Like all Paula's Choice products, this is fragrance-free.

Lightly lathering, this silky formula quickly removes all makeup (including eye makeup) and rinses off easily, leaving skin perfectly clean and soft.

Disclosure: In addition to reviewing thousands of cosmetic products from hundreds of brands over the past 30 years, Paula also has her own line of products called Paula's Choice. Paula and her team's goal is to help you find the best products possible for your skin whether they are from Paula's Choice or some other product line. Paula's commitment to this is so strong she is the only cosmetics company owner in the world that recommends products other than her own. Paula and the Paula's Choice Research Team formulate our products to meet or exceed the criteria we use to review products from every other brand on this site. We review all products the same way using the same research, objective comments, and praise no matter whose product it is.

Paula's Choice was created in 1995 in response to the many readers who asked Paula to develop her own products. Given Paula's unique overview of the cosmetics industry, 30+ years of research, and earnest desire to help people find the best products for their skin-care needs, creating her own products was a natural extension of her work. Paula's Choice range of products are designed to meet the needs and preferences of just about every skin type and concern imaginable using only proven ingredients substantiated by published research.

Paula's Choice products provide:

  • State-of-the-art formulas based on reliable, published skin-care research
  • Proven effective solutions for wrinkles, acne, rosacea, and sensitive skin
  • Gentle yet effective products for those seeking a natural skin-care routine
  • Fragrance-free formulas (because it is what's best for your skin)
  • Cruelty-free formulas: Paula's Choice does not test on animals during any stages of product development—nor do we contract with third parties to conduct animal testing on our behalf
  • Environmentally-friendly products that feature minimalist packaging that ensures product efficacy
  • 100% Customer Satisfaction Guarantee from our world-class Customer Service Team

Paula's Choice products and Paula's work is routinely praised by noted dermatologists and other professionals. New York-based dermatologist Dr. Debra Jaliman stated that "I have a lot of respect for Paula Begoun and the way she thoroughly researches her subject. Her recommendations about cosmetics and skin care are deservedly influential." Eminent Seattle-based dermatologist Dr. Brandith Irwin concurs: "She takes a complex subject and makes it easy to understand!"

    Makes my skin happy
    • After trying sample sets of Paula's skin care in Resist, Skin Recovery and Moisture Boost, I choose Moisture Boost for my cleanser. I have very fair, sensitive, dry skin (and maybe the beginnings of rosacea). This cleanser made my skin happy. I started wearing less foundation and starting getting compliments on my skin. Girlfriends have since ordered their own sample sets too. I take off my mascara with oil, then rinse face with warm water. I transferred cleanser into a pump bottle and use 1/2 pump. From other reviews, I then massage my face with the cleanser for 30-60 seconds. It doesn't lather, but it doesn't dry my skin either. Rinse with lots of warm water and use a fresh washrag to dry. Skin feels nice not tight. I am 40+ yo and custom picked my skin system from Paula's choice. So easy to do! For less than twenty bucks, get 3 sample sets. Snip a tiny corner off and try. If you're sensitive like me, I needed to only try one new thing at a time and usually I tried it at night. So it was a process. But so worth it! I use Moisture Boost Cleanser and Moisture Boost Daily Restoring Complex with SPF30 (moisturizer with sunscreen). My skin does not like any Toners! I choose the Resist Daily Smoothing Treatment (5% Alpha Hydroxy Acid) and alternate it with Skin Perfecting 1% BHA Lotion with about 1-2 in between. My skin reddened with daily use of either one. I also use a retinol product once a week. I noticed better results with another brand (Neutrogena). At night I put on a treatment for sun damage/melasma which is super emollient so I don't use a night cream. I don't use a serum either. The skin around my eyes didn't respond well - looked drier than ever! So I use a natural oil straight up - almond and olive oil. Skin is happy :-) I give this cleanser the highest rating!
