Ok yes, the smell is a little offputting. Honestly though, I barely even notice it anymore, it fades quickly, and it is better than added fragrances that will irritate my skin! Because that is the most important point: my skin loves this moisturizer! If you have dry skin this probably won't provide enough moisture, I have combo skin and this is perfect on my t-zone but left my cheeks on the dry side. I just added a toner and a serum and now all is good. My skin is highly acne prone along with being sensitive but the combo of this and the pore normalizing cleanser has improved my skin tremendously.

    This is yet another example of Paula's Choice outstanding customer service. The staff really listen to what customers have to say and case in point: they brought Hydralight moisturizer back. I used this for years and it was absolutely perfect for my combination, sensitive, acne-prone skin.

    Will be ordering this ASAP. I have been a loyal Paula's Choice customer for years and will be for years to come. Products are top notch and so is customer service. Fair prices too. What more can one ask for?

      THANK YOU for bringing back this product!!! It is simply amazing for oily and combination skin. Super lightweight and drys to a powdery touch. It's deceptively moisturizing- I've noticed when I don't use this, my face starts to peel (from Retinol), but with it, I'm good to go! Happy Customer!! :)

        Omg did this just come back?! THANK YOU!!! I was here to order more of this same lotion but with the SPF as I didn't know this was back in your product line. While I love that lotion for day, this is my fave for night since I don't want/need SPF seeping into my skin 24/7, and I love the lightweight feel that moisturizes my skin perfectly!! I even love the smell....so glad this is back!!

          I was bereft when this was discontinued, and although I've found a replacement for my nighttime moisturizer with the Calm series, it hasn't been my beloved Hydralight. I came in to reorder today and saw the sample packet, and immediately came back in here to find the full-size. SO EXCITED! Thank you!!!

          • if you have a poor sense of smell

          The smell of this product is AWFUL! I tried using it and couldn't bear the smell, so my 21 year old daughter -- who also uses PC products -- gave it a try. She also finds the strong, very unpleasant smell impossible to bear. We both had to wash it off shortly after applying it. It does have a lovely texture!

            OMG, the feeling of this finally touching my face again cannot be described- I've seriously been lost without Hydralight, tried the calm line, then the other heavier version (purple) nothing really compares to this moisturizer- not from Paula's products or any other moisturizer from any other brand out there (I've cycled through so many). This one is without a doubt HG status ! lightweight but deeply moisturizing, you don't have to tug at your skin for this to spread and absorb, feels great, soothes your skin and almost evens your skin tone; a little goes a long way too. LOVE IT- THANK YOU FOR BRINGING THIS BACK!
