Truly calms my dry skin
from Burlingame, CA

Comments about CALM Moisturizer for Normal to Dry Skin - 2 oz:
I was happy with Moisture Boost but I am thrilled with this moisturizer! The obvious difference that I can see is that my skin is no longer red. This is very soothing to my skin.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Ditto m the burning
I received samples and was initially happy that it seemed just like Moisture Boost. A few minutes went by and now my skin is burning. This is such a disappointment as Moisture Boost was the only cream I've ever used that truly calmed my skin. I was told that the only difference from Moisture Boost was that they took the niacinamide (antioxidant) out. Well, I'm skeptical because it is apparent from the reviews here that I'm not alone in feeling burning and irritation. Won't be buying this. Please bring Moisture Boost back or fix this product!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Does not mix with foundation
Used this in morning waited about 20 minutes before applying foundation, still my foundation became flaky, does NOT make for a smooth look. Have been using same foundation for 4 years so I know it's the lotion. Tried for 7 days with same results

Tried this product and very disappointed. It burns, I stopped using it and used my usual Paulas products, then tried it again, it burned again. Very disappointed, don't discontinue what works!

Irritating and drying
from Richmond, VA
I have used moisture boost moisturizer for several years now and love it. I searched far and wide to find a moisturizer that wouldn'tirritate my sensitive skin. THEN I find out Paula is discontinuingmoisture boost and recommend Calm Redness Relief. After 2weeks my skin is so irritated that even washing it hurts. I am unable to use my retinol because of this. My skin is peeling.Please bring back Moisture Boost - this is not a substitute!

Everything I Need
from Minneapolis, MN
I have oily/combo skin, but since starting tretinoin I've need a heavier moisturizer. I was excited to order this because it has jojoba oil in it, which I've been fond of for years and I knew my skin would tolerate it (versus oils in other heavy moisturizers that can break me out). This has worked perfectly to moisturize and soothe dry areas of my skin. I haven't had any breakouts from use, and no tingling or irritation at all. I highly recommend this, and I prefer it over the Skin Recovery moisturizer.

didn't help with redness
from San Jose
used as a daily moisturizer but redness got worse and I got a rash on checks. It didn't feel irritating but obviously it was once I stopped using it my skin got much better.

Form your own opinion.
By Just Me
I got this product in the entire set and I really loved it from the start. I would have to say that the redness on my cheeks hasn't gone away - but, it could be a bit less red. Maybe?? I use this product after I have put on all my toners, tonics and eye cream. It adds extra moisture for everything. I find that my mineral makeup glides on very well after using it. The day cream with the sunscreen was not something that I could use - that one actually did irritate my skin.
Sticking with Recovery Moisturizer
from Memphis, TN
I was excited to try this moisturizer targeted for redness and irritation. I used it day and night in place of the Skin Recovery Moisturizer. I found it did nothing special for my chronic redness and lacked silkiness or slip over my skin. I had to continually use the Resist Moisture Renewal Oil Booster with each application to get enough moisture into my skin with this product. I found this product to almost have a matte effect on my skin; perhaps this helps with redness in combination or oily skin types. I'm going back to the Skin Recovery Moisturizer.I tried this moisturizer again now that the weather is warmer. I'm still very underwhelmed by this product. In my experience, the target audience would be those with more normal to combination/oily skin.

Burned and left rash
from San Francisco, CA
About Me Beauty Conscious, Minimalist
It took several weeks to figure out why I was getting a strange rash on my neck- eventually I discovered it was this. I took it out of rotation, healed with the help of a rx cream, then tried it again and my neck immediately started burning and turning red. So disappointing. I have sensitive skin (obviously) but the calm spf moisturizers don't seem to cause this issue. Also, I don't like the texture- it never seemed moisturizing, it didn't feel great on my skin
