Comments about Paula's Choice Skincare CALM Kit for Normal to Oily Skin - Full Kit:

I tried the CALM Redness Relief Kit for my consistent facial redness. I have mixed feelings about the kit because some of them I loved and some I can't use at all. Here is my assessment of each product:
1. Cleanser - It has an interesting consistency, like a slime, but in a good way. It felt great on my face, but it turns out I can't use this product because it actually makes the redness on my face brighter. I used it for a week total before calling it quits. Very disappointed.
2. Toner - I typically never use toner, but I do like this one for it not being astringent. If you like toner, this one is nice.
3. BHA 1% Exfoliant - I had already tried the 2% so I already knew I would love this product! It makes my face feel smoother without having to scrub on my face like with those awful scrubs with the beads or other abrasive stuff.
4. SPF 30 moisturizer - I feel meh about this product. Because of the type it is, it creates this white layer on my face and looks greasy afterwards.
5. Moisturizer - I like this product. It looks and feels like a salve and I like the way it feels on my skin.

So my overall assessment of this kit is hit and miss. If it wasn't for the cleanser, which is a huge part of the skincare routine, I would have rated it a lot higher. And as for my overall facial redness, it does seem a little less irritated than before (with the products I'm still using), but it's a not miracle solution. Then again, I have a pretty severe case.

Comments about CALM Kit for Normal to Oily Skin - Full Kit:

Because I have used and loved the hydralight line for years I gave this a try. I can not stress enough how much I dislike this set. This is not a line for "normal" to oily skin, this is for straight up oily skin. The toner is the old redness relief lotion in a new bottle. Half of it went in my trash, I've given some of the other products away. So disappointed.

    Comments about CALM Kit for Normal to Oily Skin - Full Kit:

    I absolutely love Paula's Choice Calm Collection. My skin is so sensitive and/or red that I am always so cautious when changing to a new company. BUT...I tried this line and my skin is starting to settle down, even my husband has commented on my skin! I flush very easy, like I am always embarrassed, but this has helped so much. There was another company I was going to try, but forget it, I am a Paula's Choice success story. The only con I can think of is the size of the Repairing Serum. I can only use it once a day, because it is only 1 oz. Other than that I am a happy, happy camper. :)

      I have had rosacea for several years, and this line is wonderful! It helps to keep my skin from feeling irriated, and there is a noticable reduction in redness. Every product in this collection is great!

        Comments about CALM Kit for Normal to Oily Skin - Full Kit:

        I started using the entire sensitive line one week ago. Withing 3 days I have noticed significant changes to the texture and pore size. Within 2-3 I noticed that my skin was regenerating faster this lightly without irritation seeding the old skin. It would simply rub off a little yes;first week I got the occasional small topical pumpke-which I expected after changing my old Clinoque line. 7 days later-no pipples-no redness, my skin is smooth and feels non greasy all day. This is huge difference for me. I did not think that it was possible. Love the entire line-sent free and yet luxurious like. Cream is dense but quick absorbing and hydrating. Thank you. Highly recommend.

        ACNE PRONE/OILY SKIN - DON'T USE THE ENTIRE KIT!

        By dhomalley

        from Black Hills, SD

        About Me Beauty Conscious

        Verified Reviewer

        Pros

        • Select Products Work Well

        Cons

        • Irritating Serum
        • Irritating Toner

        Best Uses

          Comments about CALM Kit for Normal to Oily Skin - Full Kit:

          I started out using this entire kit, but my oily, acne-prone skin developed cystic acne, white heads, and the oiliness didn't improve. When I realized the toner smelled similar to the Resist Weekly Retexturing Foam 4% BHA I discontinued using it as I'd had previous breakout problems with that product. Almost instantly my complexion started clearing up. Next, because I didn't like the oily feel, and the balling that occurred with the serum I stopped using it. Over the following week my oily skin began normalizing. Now, after 3 months of daily use with the remaining products my skin is clear, and my oily skin has normalized. I still have oily skin, but to a much more moderate degree. My complexion and coloring are so clear that, when not at work, I wear very little make-up!
          My profession requires me to use airbrush foundation and full make-up, and the cleanser works very well at removing these products. I do double cleanse, but as I have oily skin I've always double cleansed.

          As for the 1% BHA exfoliant, I absolutely love it! Mysterious little bumps have now disappeared from my skin, my pores appear smaller, and I no longer need to express my pores on an almost daily basis. I may need to do a small amount of expressing in the T-zone once a month.
          The SPF30 Mineral Moisturizer works wonders for me. It should be noted that one only needs to apply a small amount to get the job done. The product is quite thin and spreads well. The mineral base doesn't activate my overly active oil glands, and helps keep me matte until one quick touch-up is needed around 1 or 2 PM.
          I find the Redness Relief Moisturizer for evening use just the right balance. It adds more moisture than I would need during the day, but my skin loves it at night. I do apply this heavier than the SPF Mineral Moisturizer due to its thicker consistently, but it applies smoothly.

          BOTTOM LINE: Save yourself money and breakouts by skipping the toner and serum. Try the other 4 products on their own. They do a wonderful job of clearing pores, eliminating redness, and reducing oil. In fact these 4 products alone do what PC advertises this line to do. The other 2 products are deal breakers in my opinion, and that's why I gave 4 stars.

            Comments about CALM Kit for Normal to Oily Skin - Full Kit:

            I use this kit daily. I am unable to use the toner, it really irritated my skin. I use the other four ingredients...using the SPF moisturizer during the day and the other at night. I suffered (under a dermatologist care ) with painful, unbecoming rosacea flare ups, T zone breakouts and incredibly dry, sensitive skin for a long time. Because my dermatologist was bad at this I took matters into my own hands and did some research. This product was recommended by reviews, so I took a shot. I have not had a flare up since I started and my skin feels amazing. Moisturized, and healthy. Finding a kit with anti aging elements that are also not irritating can be a challenge. I highly, highly recommend!

                I bought this set on a whim and when I first used it I was less than impressed and moved onto other things. Not being a wasteful person eventually guilt got the better of me and I pulled it out of my skincare cabinet to use it up and now I am in love with it. I think you have to be consistent with this product and use all the items as prescribed. My skin texture now is much better, less breakouts and no irritation whiteheads anywhere. My only complaint with this product is the smell which is kind of gross and the serum always runs out before everything else. I don't think the quantities of the products are balanced. Other than that they work great.

                Comments about CALM Kit for Normal to Oily Skin - Full Kit:

                This kit is best for sensitive and/or combination skin IMO.
                Cleanser: not drying my skin out, milky texture, but it doesn't make my skin feel clean either. Not too great at removing/ dissolving makeup. The cap needs a new design because there usually more liquid pouring out more than I wanted to use.
                Toner: smells bad, and it doesn't disappear!
                BHA exfoliant: it's actually not greasy or drying out my skin. I would probably step up to 2%.
                Serum and Night time moisturizer (no SPF): not greasy, but doesn't improve skin or pore appearance either
                SPF 30 moisturizer: Perhaps my skin just doesn't like SPF. This is still a bit too greasy for me. I live in north TX and after 4 hrs working, I already feel like my face is oily. but it's still a lot better than other moisturizer sunscreens I've used. It probably works great for someone else.
                I regretfully had to send this back. It just didn't work for my skin type.

                I have been using in the morning and before bedtime. I had actually looked up the phone number to go have a procedure to eliminate the redness! Reordering now, don't think it can repair broken capillaries but all the redness is gone! Wish I had taken before pictures to show you how fabulous this skin system is! Order now, hope your results are as great as mine have been.
