Love this moisturizer!
from Buffalo, NY

Comments about CALM Moisturizer for Normal to Dry Skin - 2 oz:
I love this moisturizer. I used to use the Moisture Balance one, but when that was *temporarily* discontinued, I switched to this one. The formula is very similar. It's nice and thick, but not too heavy. It makes my skin feel nice and soft after I get out of the shower, and my skin feels great by the next morning (I shower at night).
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Bring Back Moisture Boost
from Wichita, KS
This formulation has something that irritates my skin and causes redness. Small little pimples pop up if I continue using it for more than a day or two. The Moisture Boost was MUCH better and my skin loved it! I'm on my last tube of the old Moisture Boost and I hope they bring it back soon!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Not a replacement for Moisture Boost
from North Dakota
About Me Beauty Conscious
This is an OK moisturizer, but certainly not a replacement for the Hydrating Treatment Cream. That was richer, better for my dry skin. I agree with another reviewer who said that the Skin Recovery is too rich (more for very dry skin), that the HTC was perfect for dry skin that didn't need the extra richness of the Skin Recovery. I doubt that I will buy this again. This didn't make my skin burn, as some reviewers experienced. Might be good for someone with combination skin. Please, please bring back the HTC!

Not a stand out product
This is a nice formula but didn't make any change to the condition of my skin. I am fair skinned with redness (not rosacia) across my nose, cheeks, decoulage and chin. I was hoping for reduced redness but really the product in my experience is no different to any standard moisturiser. I agree with whith another comment made you seem to use a lot and my skin feels dry a few hours later without the use of makeup. I won't buy this product again.

Bring back Moisture "Boost Cream", please!
from Calgary, AB / Canada
About Me Beauty Expert, Skin Care Professional
This cream replaced the old " Moisture Boost " cream and is supposed to have virtually the same formula but with " improvements", I was told on the phone... Far from it, I'm afraid!Although this cream has a silky feel and applies nicely, it is NOT moisturizing enough for DRY skin (the way the Moisture Boost cream was)! What a shame!Anyone with normal/combination skin will be happy with this formula but it is unfortunate that it is called a "replacement" for Moisture Boost, which it is not.Sure, there is also the "Skin Recovery" cream, but this formula is more suitable for very dry skin, versus for skin types that are somewhere in the middle.PLEASE, Paula, bring "Moisture Boost" back or we might have to look elsewhere.
from Hollidaysburg, PA
I truly love this moisturizer. I loved the Moisture Boost line before it, and this moisturizer is even better! It smoothes on evenly, and it absorbs very quickly. I use this with The Ordinary's Rose Hip Oil, and it is the perfect combo for dry, winter skin! My skin has never felt so moisturized! Obsessed! If you loved moisture boost, this will probably be just as or moreso satisfying.

I also really miss the purple moisture boost... that stuff was amazing! I've been a Paula's Choice customer for many many years. This is only OK, but my skin is missing that extra moisture. I don't know if this is related to the switch, but the skin on the side of my face is more red. I'm going to try something else! Let me know if you revise the formula.

I MISS MOISTURE BOOST!!!
I've been using Calm, trying to wean myself off of the now discontinued Moisture Boost, and I'm incredibly disappointed.I have very dry, very sensitive skin. Moisture Boost has been my HG moisturizer for years. PLEASE BRING IT BACK. Calm is simply not effective. It takes twice as much product to make my face feel moisturized and it feels dry and tight within a few hours. This is going to get really expensive! I'm not sure what I'm going to do when it gets colder and my skin gets even more dry.

Bring Moisture Boost Back!
from Irvine, CA
About Me Beauty Expert
I've used Moisture Boost for as long as I've been using PC products. I was upset to learn PC has discontinued Moisture Boost. It's the equivalent of Pond's Cream being discontinued for many. Moisture Boost is a PC staple. I tried this new version- it's okay. I still want Moisture Boost back! I've read through the recent reviews and I see many others feel the same way. I hope Paula will see this and listen to her customers and bring Moisture Boost back.

Why oh why?
from Brooklyn, NY
Why did you get rid of Moisture Boost? I loved that moisturizer and used it for years. This new one turned my face and neck bright red and it felt like I was burning even when I only splashed water on my face. I still have a tube of my beloved Moisture Boost and went back to that and my skin has returned to normal. Please bring it back! Or sell both of them, I don't care, I just want my Moisture Boost!
