Great cleanser for sensitive skin

By Annie

Pros

  • Lightweight
  • Non-Greasy
  • Soothes Skin

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Daily Use

    I had been looking for a cleanser that would not irritate my skin but would still be effective in cleansing and I finally found the one! This cleanser is very light, unscented, creamy, and effectively removes makeup without stripping my skin of its natural oils. I wash my face twice a day and it has not irritated my skin at all! I will definitely be reordering it!

      Comments about CALM Cleanser for Normal to Dry Skin - 6.7 oz:

      This cleanser is so great. Lately my skin has decided to be very sensitive, so I've had to completely change the products I use. I'm glad I did, because I don't think I'll ever go back to a traditional foaming cleanser. This product sort of reminds me of philosophy purity. It's a very creamy formula with a very light lather, but barely any lather at all. However, it seems to remove all my makeup in the first wash. After I pay dry my face I can feel that my skin is clean but not stripped or compromised in any way, almost hydrated, which is important for people with sensitive and or dry skin. I'd honestly recommend this cleanser to any skin type, especially oily acne prone, as it is a very simple and gentle cleanser that will not over strip.

        I started with the samples of this product line and saw results in 2 days! I've never used anything that worked this great this quickly. I ordered the full line the next week and am loving it more everyday. Worth every penny!

          Comments about CALM Cleanser for Normal to Dry Skin - 6.7 oz:

          I started using this with the rest of the Calm line once a day, with a different brand cleanser either in the morning or at night, so it took me a while to realize that this was causing irritation. Eventually it became clear that after using this my skin would rather quickly break out in small red bumps, sometimes itchy, mostly around my cheeks. When I noticed this would go away pretty quickly if I rewashed with another cleanser, I had to stop using it. Very disappointed to see this from a product targeted at redness and sensitive skin. I haven't had these problems with any other product from this line, just the cleanser.

            Comments about CALM Cleanser for Normal to Dry Skin - 6.7 oz:

            I have very sensitive, acne prone and dry skin. I have tried the Resist anti aging and Resist Perfectly Balanced cleanser lines and just needed something in between. So I found this CALM line to be the perfect line for my skin. I wear make up everyday, but I don't rely on this to take away all my make up. I use make up remover on cotton pads and take off all make up first before using this cleanser to clean anything left behind. I love the texture, no scent, gentle and non drying formula. Love the whole CALM line for Normal to Dry skin! Thankyou for creating it.

              I'm neither a budget nor brand buyer. I try anything until I find what works for my particular skin challenges. This product mildly irritates my skin (dry, sensitive, rosacea) and leaves a feeling of residue.

                I love this cleanser! I needed something that actually cleans but is still gentle. This is it! It takes off my makeup and the loads of sunscreen I wear. Plus its gentle and doesn't leave skin tight. I was also looking for something oil free because although some oils are not supposed to clog your pores, I can't use anything with oil or I break out bad. Just for the record I have sensitive skin but I break out.

                Not identical to Moisture Boost

                Comments about CALM Cleanser for Normal to Dry Skin - 6.7 oz:

                This product is not identical to the Moisture Boost formula. I was a regular user of Moisture Boost and had to buy Redness Relief when Moisture Boost was discontinued. During my first use, I noticed that Redness Relief felt a bit more drying on my skin than Moisture Boost. When I compared the Moisture Boost label and the Redness Relief label, I noticed some differences. While the ingredients are the same, they are in a different order, meaning the quantity/concentration is different. Moisture Boost had more emollient and skin soothing ingredients near the top of the list. Moisture Boost has Methyl Gluceth-20 (emollient) as the 3rd ingredient, but it is the 4th ingredient in Redness Relief. Chamomile (skin soothing) is the 6th ingredient in Moisture Boost but is the 7th ingredient in Redness Relief. Now I know that subtle difference in quantity of emollient and skin-soothing agents is why my skin feels a bit drier. Please either bring back Moisture Boost or make the ingredient list truly identical - in concentration - to Moisture Boost.

                  My husband has suffered with seborrheic dermatitis for 20 years. He's tried every lotion and cream and seen multiple dermatologists, but nothing has worked more than a few weeks. We tried Paula's Choice calm skin care system and his skin has never looked better. He tells me I 'cured' his skin problem. It used to be raw, red, dry and oily all at the same time. Now his skin looks great. Thanks for a great product Paula and for all the information on your site regarding his condition. This system will gently cleanse, restore balance and moisturize the most sensitive skin.

                      I like many Paula's Choice products, love Redness Relief spf 30 mineral moisturizer, and so thought I'd try this cleanser. I used it for about two or so weeks and was not satisfied. It is sticky and kind of drying. I just noticed my skin looking more blotchy and dry. I've gone back to my old brand - more expensive but very soothing on my tempermental skin.
