Skin Balancing Invisible Finish Moisture Gel leaves skin feeling remarkably silky, while imparting necessary elements that maintain and generate healthy skin. It is ideal under makeup, assuming your foundation provides broad-spectrum sun protection. This is also a great moisturizer for men to use after shaving, and it can easily replace your foundation primer for smooth makeup wear.

This weightless gel is loaded with antioxidants, the cell-communicating ingredient niacinamide, and water-binding agents that create a shine-free finish while imparting necessary elements that maintain and generate healthy skin.

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!"

    Just ok
    • I really liked how this felt on my face but it clogged my pores and caused breakouts. Any product like this with silicone textures reck havoc on my skin. Silky and smotth if anyone with combination to normal skin would like to try. Not intense moisture so those who need it I would skip this.

    Skin Balancing Moisture Gel
    • While some may like this product, it does contain a lot of dimethicone which my skin does not like. Feels waxy on my skin and causes major blackheads. So far, I can only use it under my eyes.

    A favorite moisturizer
    • Finally a moisturizer that doesn't leave my already oily skin more so. As part of my skin care routine, I use this at night, but also as an under-eye moisturizer for day. Great value and leaves my skin feeling silky. Highly recommend!
