Please bring back hydralight
About Me Beauty Conscious
Comments about CALM Moisturizer for Normal to Oily Skin - 2 oz:
Please please bring back hydralight lotion for normal to oily skin. This moisturizer is no where near as good and really irritates my skin. It also doesn't sit well under makeup. Hydralight was the only moisturizer I had ever found that worked for me and I have struggled ever since to find something that works. Please bring it back!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Great Lotion for oily skin

To me, this seems like a great replacement for the hydralight lotion. It is very light and non greasy. If you have oily skin I recommend it
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Gentle, matte-feeling daytime moisturizer
from Austin, TX
In my opinion, this is still inferior to the Hydralight moisturizer and I was really disappointed when I first tried it. The product first comes out as a somewhat thick, silicone-y gel, but once applied it felt too matte, like it was barely providing any moisture at all. But after repeated use and experimentation, I have come around. It's completely inadequate as a night time moisturizer unless you are both very young and very oily, but now I find that it works really well as a day time moisturizer under my sunscreen and makeup. I have oily skin and live in central Texas so its matte quality is a plus. I can also see it as a good moisturizer for men since it'll absorb quickly and not look dewy. It definitely has never caused irritation or acne for me. I just think it was a mistake on the company's part to market this as a replacement for Hydralight because they're too different and it sets up the wrong expectations.
from Boston, MA
When I first used this I must have been doing something wrong because it left my face feeling tacky. Once I figured out that problem I feel in love with the way this leaves my face feeling. I have normal to slightly oily skin and this just absorbs right in and leaves my skin feeling like silk. I've never used the hydralight without SPF so I can't compare, but this moisturizer is different from any other moisturizer I've ever used. It feels like nothing is there after it's been applied. I love it. The only problem is it doesn't have SPF so I was only using it at night. But the hydralight with sun protection feels too greasy on my face so I've taken to using this in the day as well with an SPF foundation, although I don't think that is a sufficient long term solution, especially with summer coming up.

I switched to the Calm Redness Relief products when Hydralight regimen discontinued and my skin has not looked as good as it did with the Hydralight line, please bring it back! Hydralight REALLY helped my rosacea, the redness relief products seem to be making it worse than ever.

Made my skin burn
All of the Calm products make my face burn. The moisturizer burned the most.
Very nice nighttime moisturizer
from Lansdowne. PA
About Me Beauty Conscious, Beauty Expert
I use this at night. It hydrates nicely, doesn't irritate me at all. I mix the hylouronic acid booster with it and it absorbs pretty quickly and my skin feels like silk in the morning. I really like it. I do feel however, that it is a little too greasy feeling for me if i use it in the daytime, but my skin is extremely oily anyway .
from Union, NJ
I bought this because in the winter, my skin gets very dry from using retinol products. This product claims to calm rosacea or skin redness, and I have both. But I noticed that every time I used this moisturizer before bed, my face looked even redder when I looked in the mirror in the morning. I stopped using it last week because I was afraid it was going to mess up my skin. I have good results with most Paula's Choice products, but have not been lucky with the moisturizers in this line. I will not repurchase.
I miss Hyrdalight!
By Tree Lover
Although this is a lovely product, I had hoped it would provide similar moisturising benefits to Hydralight - it does not. It may be alright in the heat and humidity of summer, but I find it's just not enough for my skin. Hydralight was perfect! Please please please Paula - bring it back!

Not even close to Hydralight Lotion
from Atlanta, GA
I was a huge fan of the hydra light lotion, and sadly it was discontinued. This moisturizer was recommended as a substitute for hydralight, but it doesn't measure up. Hydralight was a perfect light weight lotion that seemed to contour my skin. It smoothed out lines and minimized pores...it was perfect! Please bring it back!!
