Made my skin burn
from Phoenix, AZ
Bought this because it said calming but it made my skin burn when used over other Paula's Choice products and when used alone. I found it too think and hard to spread.
One of my favorite moisturizers!!!
By Sheldon B

About Me Beauty Expert, Makeup Artist, Skin Care Professional
I started using this moisturizer 8 months ago, and it's easily become one of my favorite moisturizers!My Skin Type: - VERY combination - Sensitive- Acne ProneDuring the winter time, my cheeks, chin, and upper lip area become very dry. Because of that, I add 2-3 drops of the RESIST Moisture Renewal Oil Booster into the moisturizer, and it's an AMAZING combination!I've seen many comments about how this isn't moisturizing enough, but there are two versions: one for oily/combination and one for normal to dry skin. So if the oily/combination isn't moisturizing enough, you can try the one for normal to dry skin, or use the RESIST Moisture Renewal Oil Booster.If you have very oily skin, this is great on its own! If you have normal to combination skin, I highly recommend trying it with the RESIST Moisture Renewal Oil Booster, before making a final judgement!
Just enough moisture
from Madison WI
About Me Beauty Conscious
I like the level of moisturizing that this provides-not too heavy or greasy. It does not break me out even though I have acne prone skin and does not irritate my rosacea.

I don't believe this product is effective
By Soli B.
from Westminster MD
I started using this product twice a day, in the morning after I got out of the shower and in the evening before I went to bed, and my skin continually feels dry and chalky. I used to use moisture boost (I think that was what it was called) and this was the alternative recommended to me by a representative of this company. I don't believe that it actually moisturizes because, as I said, my skin feels dry even after I've put it on twice.
Great but Inconsistent
About Me Skin Care Professional
I loved this product when I purchased it the first time. It had a light LOTION texture that you could easily spread all over the face, without tugging on the skin. I just purchased another tube, and the consistency is a THICK CREAM like the one that is for "dry skin". I double checked the label and my purchasing, which says "Oily/combination" but the sunscreen inside the tube is not LOTION and light anymore.I always order the "dry skin" one aka skin recovery for my mom. But for myself I like a lighter product.Not sure if I just received a BAD product or if they change the formula. Disappointed because I loved the product before.

Makes Rosacea worse
This product feels nice on the skin, but doesn't moisturize the skin hardly at all. It is actually irritating my skin because of how little is moisturizing, and something else in it is irritating my skin and causing my rosacea to get out of control. Would NOT recommend if you have combination skin that has a par that is very dry and gets rosacea. Was recommended by Paula's choice support to get the Normal/Dry version but am worried this will make me break out since I also have very breakout prone skin.

I Miss Hydralight
A PC rep pointed me to this product when I found out my beloved Hydralight Moisture-Infusing Lotion had been discontinued. Though the rep indicated this is the same product, I found this to be a gel format instead of a lightweight lotion. On my normal (sometimes dry) skin, this actually leaves me oily at the end of the day, where I could use Hydralight and not need blotting tissues at all. I'm about half through the tube and will likely request an exchange, as this is not what I expected and I don't feel like it ever sinks into my skin.
from Portland, OR
I ordered a weeks worth of samples to test this out and wow...this product is great. My skin is a nightmare in basically every way possible and moisturizers always feel too heavy on my skin and this one is perfect. I have pretty red cheeks and every morning I wake up with virtually no redness at all after putting this on the night before. Combined with the CLEAR Anti-Redness Exfoliator, it's a dream and my skin feels fresh and SO SOFT in the morning.
