Comments about CALM Moisturizer for Normal to Oily Skin - 2 oz:
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.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I really enjoy the neutral (non-irritating) feel and gel-like consistency of this formula. I've been using daily and have found that it makes a nice base for makeup.

So disappointed in this moisturizer. I have loved every PC product that I've purchased and this one just does not compare. I have acne prone, red, combination skin. More oily with the occasional small dry patch so I selected the oily to normal moisturizer. Let me say that it is light and goes on very well. But that's the only good thing I can say. If I've just done a light exfoliation then the moisturizer burns, if I haven't, then I get dry flakes in 2 minutes. If I try reapplying, I get dry flakes again. It's just not good. I'm sure it works well for people with true oily skin.. but if you have combination, even if you want to reduce redness, steer clear.I had bought 2 tubes as there was a sale and the reviews were so good.. seriously regret that decision
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
I am new to PC, disappointed with this product. My skin stings when applying this product. After a few days I noticed the area around my eyes getting red. I stopped using and the redness went away after a few days. I tried using again, and the redness returned.

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!

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!

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.

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!
