About Me Beauty Conscious
Comments about CALM SPF 30 Moisturizer for Normal to Dry Skin - 2 oz:
This daytime moisturizer with SPF is perfect for my extra-sensitive skin. I have issues with dryness, breakouts, and redness. This is the first SPF product that I use daily without fail. It is particularly helpful in evening out my skin tone, calming redness, and combating super sensitivity. I love it.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Amazing for dry skin
Um, I'm obsessed with this. I've been using it for like 3 weeks daily after very carefully adding into my routine. I'm pretty breakout prone, as in most products including makeup will bring about at least 1 pimple, usually multiple tiny ones on my cheeks and chin. This miraculously does not do that and for that reason alone, it gets 5 stars. I just love how easy it is to blend and that there's no white cast or feeling of over-moisturizing. I can layer it underneath makeup and have the peace of mind knowing I have sun protection with a mineral sunscreen. I searched far and wide for this bad boy and I'm very happy I've finally found a mineral SPF that suits my skin type. It has replaced the DE Umbra SPF which I wanted to love but was just NOT good for multiple reasons. Oh and I got my husband this one for normal/oily skin and he uses it daily and loves it. He's on his second tube.

Irritated my sensitive skin
I have very sensitive skin, and mild rosacea, to the point where I struggle to find a moisturizer that doesn't cause irritation. I like the consistensy and moisturizing abilities of this one. It leaves my skin looking healthy and glowing. But it causes really bad irritation on me, theres a faint tingling when I first put it on, and within an hour or two my skin is burning hot and irritated.

The Opposite of Calm!
from Raleigh, NC
I bought this to replace my usual moisturizer + SPF (Moisture Boost SPF 30 - which I had been using daily for the past year) since it's been discontinued. I was expecting to love this new product, but sadly that was not the case. My skin started to break out a few days after using it, but I kept using it anyway since I thought it must have been from something else. I ended up breaking out in 7 places on my face, after having had clear skin for months before! I stopped using this and I'm back to being blemish-free, but without a daily sunscreen. Please bring back the Moisture Boost products!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Wonderful, but takes long to sink in
I do love how this moisturiser feel on my skin once it settles!! It makes it super soft and my dry to very dry skin is loving it. But it takes a while for it to sink in, about an hour for me. I need to wait long until I can put my make up on. The formula is a bit difficult to work with, sticky. BUT that being said, it is an amazing product once it has sunk in. I am moisturised throughout the day and it makes my make up look flawless!

Love the way it smells

About Me Minimalist
This is a great option for a mineral sunscreen. It's not very moisturizing so I layer it with other products. But it accomplishes just what I need it to - SPF! And most Paula products don't have a smell and this does from the cucumber so I prefer it over the resist daily moisturizer with mineral SPF.

Dries out my skin so it looks terrible
from Mississauga, ON
I like this product in theory but it really dries out my skin and within an hour my pores are clogged and my skin is flaking.

I must admit that I was upset when I tried to order Moisture Boost Daily Restoring Complex and was told that it was discontinued. But the good news is that new product that I chose as a substitute, Calm Redness Relief SPF 30 Mineral Moisturizer is even better. This new product goes on easily and controls my oily areas while moisturizing my dryer areas--it's just magic. I don't have rosacea but this product evens out the color in my skin. Thank you PC for continuing to improve on your products even though I thought they were already great.
Its ok for a sunscreen

Great for Rosacea and Sensitive Skin!

About Me Budget Buyer
My rosacea-prone, breakout prone, super sensitive skin doesn't allow me to use anything other than mineral sunscreens. I hated the white cast they left and how difficult it was to apply make-up over them. Paula's Choice Calm SPF 30 moisturizer is the answer to my prayers! It goes on smoothly without a noticeable cast, gives adequate moisture to my skin, and I have no problems applying make-up over it. I am thrilled that I don't have to apply a separate moisturizer unless I choose to. I use this product daily and have had no irritation from it, not even in the delicate eye area. It is so hard to find skin products for sensitive skin that are affordable with my limited budget. Please keep your products reasonably priced so those of us with super sensitive skin.
