Made my skin feel tight.

      Aww man, this is such a bummer. I love Paula's Choice products, and I love most of the Moisture Boost items. For some reason, this made my skin SO dry!! It did not irritate or make my skin sensitive at all, but my skin felt so tight after using this, which is the exact opposite of what I wanted. I had to return this and go back to my trusty Resist Hydrating Cleanser, which was much more moisturizing for my skin. I also wish this product had a pump, which it does not. :(

        This cleanser feels so luxurious. Your skin is left soft and clean not greasy or dry. It's just the perfect cleanser for anyone with the exception of maybe really really dry skin. I can use this cleanser no matter what state my skin is in weather it be oily, dry, dehydrated or sensitive it is just perfect every time. It cleans and softens the skin so beautiful without any residue left behind and the texture feels like pure silk. I can't live without so glad you brought it back please never change or discontinue this product! I would be lost as my skin Loves this

          I am on my second large bottle of this stuff and it is amazing. I've tried the two resist cleansers which are pricer but my skin definitely prefers the light texture of this cleanser. I use this daily morning and night and even when I use a PC mineral based daytime sunscreen/moisturizer, this stuff takes it right off. I swirl it around in my palms with a couple drops of water and then apply it to my dry face. I splash it off with water and then dry. I follow it with one of my many PC toners and exfoliants.

            I have used this cleanser for years. I purchased a Clarisonic two years ago and this is the perfect cleanser to use with it. Paula discontinued this cleanser for a short time and I had to purchase Cerave and did not like it. The Cerave did not remove my eye makeup very well and did not work that well with my Clarisonic. I was so glad she decided to add this cleanser back to her line! I don't stray from this cleanser and hope she does not ever decide to discontinue this one again!

              I really love this cleanser and it does remove my most of my make-up. I have to go over my eye area twice to get all my mascara off but I don't mind the extra step. It is a great cleanser for me because I can use it on my super-sensitive eye area with no burning or irritation. I work 10 hour night shifts in a busy level 1 trauma hospital. When I come home from work, this cleanser feels so rich and soothing to my tired face. I buy the bigger size and it lasts me for 4 months.

              Comments about MOISTURE BOOST Cleanser - 16 oz:

              This is one of my standby cleansers that I know will not dry out or irritate my skin. Recently, some of my old favorites have been making my skin tingle despite having no issue with the small amount of fragrance before. This one cleans my skin and leaves it feeling supple rather than tight and itchy like all gel cleansers do. It took me about a week to get used to the smell, and I'm glad I kept usingit instead of returning it right away.

                My skin is acne prone/combo and is really sensitive to cleaners. The wrong cleanser will dry out my skin for days after just one wash. This is the perfect cleanser for me. My skin is clean without feeling dry or irritated. My only complaint is that I would like the bottle with a pump or where the cleanser dispenses from the bottom of the bottle.

                  I have been using this cleanser for YEARS! Even as my skin has gone from combo, to oily back to combo and sometimes dry as I approach 50 years old, this cleanser is the BEST! It removes all my makeup and doesn't leave my face feeling tight. I wasn't aware it was discontinued because I buy extras when I place orders. I am happy it was brought back and I didn't have to panic! My other favorites are they Hydralight SPF 30 Moisturizer and the Skin Balancing Toner!

                    I can't thank you enough for bringing back the Hydralight and Moisture Boost product lines. I am so happy. These are the two cornerstone product lines that kept me with Paula's Choice since day 1, and they always provide the best results with absolutely no irritation or tightness, or dryness or redness....and they don't cause breakouts. These are absolutely the two best product lines that you offer (and the best products lines in any skin care line on the market). I'd like to say that I'll be ordering these items right away, but I have a little bit of those products already stocked up from when you announced that you were discontinuing these two lines. Rest assured, when my supply runs out, I will be ordering these products regularly, as I always have done. Please don't ever stop selling these two wonderful product lines.
