Not for dry skin
from Halifax NS
About Me Minimalist
Comments about CALM Cleanser for Normal to Dry Skin - 6.7 oz:
I decided to try this new line as my skin is dry/ extra dry in the Canadian winter but dry with normal T-zone in the summer. This cleanser dried my skin so badly that it reverted to winter conditions. I had been using the skin balancing cleanser for the summer which is less drying than this cleanser.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

About Me Beauty Conscious
O tried this product morning and night. It caused my skin to sting and break out. I found it sticky, hard to wash off and left a film on my skin. I was simply not impressed. For the cost I have a go to light lotion cleanser for sensitive skin that I can get at the mall that I much prefer. There are many of paulas choice products I do like, but this isn't one of them.

Feels great, doesn't seem to really clean though
from Chesapeake, VA
I am a huge fan of Paula's Choice! I have very sensitive, eczema prone skin. Paula's Choice has never made me break out at all and I love my results. This cleanser does make my skin feel great, doesn't dry it out, it has a nice lather but not crazy. However, I dont think it really cleans it. When I use my toner after I am still getting so much dirt off! I am not sure if that is what I should expect? But most cleansers I dont have that after. I do always get some dirt off with my toner but not like this. I will finish the product but I wont buy it again. I will look for another one.
Great for dry, sensitive skin
from Toronto, Ontario
Skin feels clean but not tight. Used to use Resist cleanser. Like this marginally better for its slip/feel going on. Like others. I find the cap awkward, hard to open.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Average product, bad container
from Roseburg, OR
Thought I'd try this line from Paula's Choice, was previously using the Resist line. Not too impressed yet, think I might go back to the Resist Line. Seems to be too drying for me. Did seem to lessen the redness a little. I use it mainly at night, with all the other products in the Calm line. Did not care for the moisturizer sunscreen when I planned to use makeup, was fine without applying makeup. Do not like the container at all. Like others have said, it is too hard to get product out of, a pump would be much better.

About Me Budget Buyer
I didn't think buying a cleanser online would be worth it but then I tried this and I don't think I can go back! This cleanser is moisturizing, doesn't sting my skin, doesn't leave a residue, gets rid of any rough/dry texture I have in the morning and it seems to make everything I put on top go on smoother and blend easier. I don't need as much of my other products. Plus, this cleanser is so efficient at removing makeup I only need about a nickel/dime size amount for morning and night. Even the small size would last quite a while. It feels so soft and silky on my skin that I actually enjoy washing my face! Yay PC!
Service and delivery comments:

Love the Light Lather; Skin Feels Great
By Colorado Corgi Mom
from Colorado Springs
About Me Brand Buyer
I switched from Skin Recovery which I still use at night (at the sink). I use Calm Cleanser in the shower. I just think that my skin is cleaner when I get a lather. So I love the light lather. It feels like silk going onto my skin, and I do like how my skin feels after rinsing. It seems that it takes more water to rinse this cleanser from my skin than it did with Skin Recovery. I love them both about the same. I live in Colorado - dry air and excessive UV. I have dry skin. I recommend this cleanser for any women with sensitive skin - but especially for older women living at high altitude in dry air.
from Olympia wa
Have begun using the Calm products recently, all except the serum, which is out of stock currently. They are fantastic, my skin has become more reactive recently and these products have made a huge improvement. Love them!,

Love this cleanser
from Orlando, FL
I have very sensitive skin that always turns red after I wash it or use any products. I've been using the PC skin recovery cleanser for years and decided to try this new line instead. SO glad I gave it a try! It's even calmer than the skin recovery and doesn't irritate my skin at all. I also think it is better at removing make up than the skin recovery cleanser.

The perfect cleanser for sensitive skin!
from Las Vegas, NV
I bought the 'Calm Cleanser for Normal to Dry Skin' for the first time about a month ago at the recommendation of a Paula's Choice consultant and it has been such a godsend! I have very dry, very sensitive, very acne-prone skin and this is the first cleanser that I've found at this price-point that leaves my face feeling clean without stripping or irritating my skin. I've paired it with the 'Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Lotion Exfoliant' to help tackle my breakouts and the combination has been working wonders!As a side note, if you want to put together a skin-care regimen but don't know where to start, I'd definitely recommend calling Paula's Choice for a consultation! Even though our conversation only lasted a few minutes, I felt like the representative that I talked to asked all the right questions and really made an effort to understand what my skin needed. She was incredibly helpful and I'm so glad I took her advice!
