Comments about CALM Moisturizer for Normal to Oily Skin - 2 oz:
I have very acne prone skin that is oily on my forehead and nose but dry and flaky on my cheeks and chin, where I usually break out the most. I have had so much trouble finding a moisturizer that doesn't make my forehead and nose even more oily but is still moisturizing enough to prevent flaking in other areas, all without causing breakouts. Finally - FINALLY - I have found that product. I use it every night and have been using it more often in the mornings as well. So happy with this moisturizer! Never stop making it!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

About Me Beauty Expert
I have normal to combination/oily skin prone to breakouts and this moisturizer is perfection for my skin. I use it daily as part of my nighttime routine. I mix a nickel sized amount with 3 drops 10% Niacinamide booster and apply. It's silky, non greasy and makes my skin look so healthy. It sinks in beautifully, doesn't sit on top of my skin, doesn't clog my pores or cause breakouts. It calms any redness and dries down to a beautiful matte finish while moisturizing enough to relieve any dryness. My skin just looks and feels so amazing every night I apply this. Love it, please don't ever discontinue.

This moisturizer is wonderful! It leaves my skin with enough moisture and doesn't leave it with a greasy feeling. I have noticed the red blotchy areas of my face have decreased over time since using this product! I love it and will be repurchasing it once I run out!
from Seattle, WA
Gives me just the right amount of moisturizing I need. I've struggled with finding something light that still provides enough. This moisturizer is so light and velvety. A little goes a long way. Really helps tone down the redness of my skin. I have acne with tons of red marks. This goes great with the acne kit I got from Paula's as well! I was worried some of the ingredients would cause breakouts, but I'm pleased to see that my skin is looking better than ever!

No frills, no fuss, nothing special
from Leesburg, VA
If you're looking for a basic, lightweight moisturizer, this is your product. If you're looking for something special, however, I'd suggest trying something else. This was moisturizing on me but not hydrating enough to be used at night. I ended up mixing in some mineral sunscreen with this product and using it during the day and it didn't turn me into an oily mess. This is an average, middle of the road product--it didn't burn, break me out, or perform strangely under makeup. It also didn't do my skin any favors in terms of wrinkle reduction, fading dark spots, or improving skin texture so I'm switching it out for the Resist Anti-Aging Clear Skin Hydrator. I'd recommend this to someone looking for a no frills skincare routine.
from Springfield, IL
I love this moisturizer! The texture is amazing, it's a gel cream and feels so soft on my skin. I have dehydrated skin from trying to combat acne. I finally decided to try Paula's Choice after a long battle of acne then dehydrated skin. I had the worst time trying to find a moisturizer. My skin became very sensitized and red also. Everything I tried either irritated my skin, caused acne, or wasn't moisturizing enough. I first tried Resist anti-aging clear hydrator. I loved the feel of it but it was irritating my skin. I finally settled on trying the calm redness moisturizer and it has made a huge difference! It also has the same texture as the resist clear hydrator. My skin is a little dehydrated still but it has improved so much! I can't live without this!

Very Satisfied Customer
By Princess Plum Jade
Hydralight Lotion is a hard act to follow. Calm delivers. I prefer Hydralight's texture, but Calm outperforms it. My middle-aged red skin loves this product and I have reduced redness and comfortable skin. Great accompaniment to retinol serum and boosters blend easily. Good primer too, allows for smoother foundation application. This is NOT rich, creamy, deep moisturizer, but it does soften and comfort skin. Worth a shot for those seeking lightweight moisture.
Great night moisturizer
from Southern California
This is a great moisturizer. I have been using it for months and it does really well on top of my aha/bha (whichever i'm using that night). It does have a slight greasiness to it and i would not apply it during the daytime, but it does what I need: moisturizes, calms redness, and doesn't clog my pores. The ingredients are really well-formulated and i doubt i could find a substitute anywhere else. the slight grease and size/price ratio are the only cons for this product

I have been using this moisturizer daily for about two weeks with the Calm Redness Relief Cleanser for Normal to Oily Skin and the Calm Redness Relief Repairing Serum. I have combination skin: normal to dry cheeks and oily t-zone/chin. I have a serious case of keratosis pilaris on my cheeks, which is the majority of the redness concern, but I have also recently developed all-over redness.This moisturizer worked wonderfully for me; not to greasy, but moisturizing enough. It has a great semi-matte finish and absorbs quite quickly. I haven't found that these products have reduced the redness a noticeable amount, but I am willing to keep using them because they are not overly drying or greasy, and I feel like the results should probably take longer than two weeks.

I was disappointed with this moisturizer because instead of being calming or reducing redness, it had the exact opposite effect for me. Within minutes of applying it my skin became red and irritated. I was surprised because I have never had this time of reaction to a moisturizer before. I guess this one is not for me!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
