Lacking Hydration

By Learner of Skincare

About Me Beauty Conscious

Pros

  • Soothes Skin

Cons

  • Doesn't Absorb Well
  • Greasy
  • Heavy

Best Uses

    I get oily throughout the day but I also have dry areas on my face that can be patchy when applying makeup. I wanted to try the Calm Moisturizer for dry skin to see if this formula would be better than the formula meant for oily skin (I have tried the moisturizer for oily skin and prefer that). I found that for me this does not sink into skin as I would like, my skin feels stiff and dry which I then apply more moisturizer but never truly get a moisturized feel and turns into annoying and irritating all day. When I apply it also does not go on super smooth so I started adding a bit of water to the moisturizer or make sure my face is wet so it goes on easier but it just feels like I have a thin layer of moisturizer and I then have to go back in with more. It is a moisturizer so it does soothe my skin when applied but does not moisturize well for me.

      I love this. I have used it for an entire year now and have no plans to switch to anything else. It is all physical yet not drying like other similar products. It works perfectly under my makeup and keeps me sunburn and suntan free. It also doesn't irritate my extremely sensitive eyes. I haven't had any acne or irritation either. I have no complaints. :)

            I'm relatively new to PC products. I won't buy this moisturizer again. Too greasy, it causes me acne, and really doesn't sit well under foundation at all.

              Comments about CALM Moisturizer for Normal to Dry Skin - 2 oz:

              I've been using this for a few weeks. I really love the way it performs. It's a somewhat thicker yet spreadable cream lotion, that is very very moisture rich yet not heavy. If you have a normal skin type or dry skin type, this moisturizer should sink in beautifully. May not be ideal for oiler skin, although you could use on cheeks and skip the nose. When I use this moisturizer I notice that my skins redness actually is diminished, and I didn't really expect that. I want to try the rest of PC moisturizers but I highly recommend this one and will most likely repurchase in the future.

                  My combination skin tends to flush easily, especially in winter. So I tried the entire CALM collection. Although it may have calmed my redness down a bit, it left my skin feeling uncomfortably dry.

                  This moisturizer did not work for me. After several months of regular use my face began to itch after applying. Then it reddened and felt dry even though I tried to avoid rubbing. I ended up washing it off and used an alternate moisturizer from the drugstore.

                  This is the first Paula's Choice product I have had a problem with. I hope I can find a moisturizer that benefits my skin.

                    I have very sensitive, reactive skin and fortunately for me, this cream lives up to its claims!

                    I purchased this cream several months ago and set it aside unopened because at the time I was
                    using other PC moisturizers that I loved. Recently, I developed unusual sensitivity and irritation after a photo facial so I decided to incorporate this little gem into to my skincare regimen. It delivered immediately. It soothed my skin and provided the much needed moisture and ingredients to repair my skin barrier.

                    I applied it both morning and night and after only 2 days the irritation and redness began to clear. I discovered it's also a terrific eye and neck cream. It also works beautifully with the PC Niacinamide and Retinol Boosters. So it has become a regular part of my routine now, usually at night over my PC Retinol Clinical Serum.

                    For reference, I also use PC Clinical Ultra Rich Moisturizer and the Resist Intensive Repair Cream, alternating according to my skin's requirements.

                    I've been using PC skincare for two decades and I wouldn't consider using anything else. I'm so pleased and grateful for the wonderful results. I get a lot of compliments on my skin & I'm often asked about my skincare. I'm always pleased to share my PC routine!

                      I like this moisturizer since it is not too heavy on my skin but still it gives the good amount of moisture. I use it in the morning before make up, whereas for the evening I prefer something a bit more moisturizing.

                        Former Moisture Boost user, switched to this when they made the transition. Had absolutely no problems (I have sensitive, acne-prone, dry skin) and somehow it feels even creamier than the Moisture Boost. Very happy with the new formula.
