    Great night time moisturizer
    • I was reluctant to use a gel moisturizer as I was not sure how my skin would react. I am very happy with this product, it absorbs well and does not cause any breakouts. I wake up with soft dewy skin, I also think this product is great to use after a peel. Again I do think this product should be used in combination with other skin balancing products.

    Only good for bed time
    • I have worn this product at night time at home for a few hours before bed time my skin gets very oily and whiteheads start to develop, I wanted something to use over my serum, I stay awake until late and still want some skin care after removing my make up but is too much, I can only use it right before bed time, I guess is because I'm not moving and I'm not sweating. I wish it was lighter, for me to hang around the house it doesn't work. I don't have this problem with the day time products.

    Great for oily skin
    • I have really oily skin. And I'm very prone to breakouts. This product gives me just enough moisture without causing my makeup to slide off my face. It doesn't have a sunscreen product, which is regrettable, but that's okay because Paula's foundations all have sunscreen. This, in combination with the BHA 2% liquid, leaves my skin soft, not oily, and as smooth as a baby bunny's belly.

    not for me
    • Nice product but not for anyone even a little bit dry like me. I bought this because I thought it would be good for warmer weather on my combo/dry skin, but it was drying and my skin still felt so tight. Formula is silky and dries matte, this would be great for someone with very oily skin.

    Alright... A Little Drying
    • I have combo skin where the T-zone gets really oily during the summer, and my cheeks get very dry during the winter. My skin is also sensitive and acne-prone. This gel is great when I'm not using makeup and effectively controls oil production; however it's a little drying during the winter and especially under makeup. It also stings around the eyes sometimes (though it's not too bad). I would recommend this for someone with really oily skin or someone with combo skin during the summer.

    Perfect fit for me!
    • I'm slightly oily with dry patches and prone to blackheads and the occasional monthly pimple. I had great luck with this - it smoothed over my dry patches and didn't make me oily. I used this before bed and under make-up when going out at night. It wore really well under make-up - no greasy spots, no dry patches! When used before bed, I didn't wake up oily or dry either and, of course, no break-outs. Great product!

    Clogged pores very badly
    • Do not buy this if you are prone to clogged pores. Thankfully I had patch tested the product on the bottom of my cheek where I'm least prone to clogged pores.Even then after just three days of use I had A LOT of clogged pores on the area I patch tested it on. Thought this would be the moisturizer for me because of the light ingredients and claim to 'minimize pores'. Sadly mistaken.

    Burns eyes
    • This moisturizer is definitely more like a gel than a cream, which I'm fine with. As far as the results with my skin, it's not great, but not terrible. However, the effect this product has on my eyes is tortuous. It stings and burns for up to 30 min. It was so irritating that I thought I must have been accidentally touching my eyes after using it. Nope. I am careful to avoid my eyes and the skin around my eyes yet even the proximity makes it so excruciating I cannot use it anymore. :(

    Got rash on my entire face...
    • Okay, I'm gonna start off by saying I really liked the texture of this product. It's very smooth, light, and not greasy, very suitable for summer. However, I don't know which ingredient(s) I'm allergic to, but I got rash on my entire face with swelling eye lids after using this product twice, literally, twice... I've been using Hydralight Lotion and I have no problem with that at all. Now my face is completely a disaster ;(

    Great lotion
    • Great lotion for me now that I am finally acclimated to my PC AHAs and don't need the extra moisture. I mainly use it for night because it does give me more of a glow than I want for day. I wish PC would make a matte lotion like Mary Kay used to have in their number 3 but it would be better. That lotion was the only thing that helped bring down the shine of my sunscreens that I would then apply over. Overall, this is a great lotion and I will continue to purchase it.

    Irritates my Eyes
    • I really like how Skin Balancing Invisible Finish Moisture Gel feels on my skin. I even use it under tinted moisturizer to create a smooth palette, and the tinted moisturizer glides on. Sadly, though, I probably won't order again because it really irritates my eyes. If I get this product anywhere close to the eyes, they start stinging and burning. They will stay red for hours afterward--not a great look. This is unexpected because I usually don't have adverse reactions to PC products.

    Best Moisturizer Ever!
    • I have used PC products for years and have enjoyed lots of them. Paula's reviews are very valuable and she has provided great advice since her first book I purchased. I have never written a review of any PC product until now. This moisture gel is the best ever!!! I was using Proactiv Green Tea Moisturizer and loved the consistency, but this PC product is even better. It was sold out for a while and I know why. It is the best. My oily/sensitive skin loves it. Don't miss out on this one!

    Best moisturizer for oily/combo skin.
    • I have oily/combo skin and this keeps my skin soft and healthy without feeling tacky at all. I've also tried a bottle of the PC Resist Anti-Aging Clear Skin Hydrator, but I prefer the lighter texture of this formula. In the winter, I find this doesn't provide quite enough moisture, but pairing it with a PC toner or serum seems to solve that slight issue. I'm on my 3rd bottle of this product and I will continue to purchase it for as long as my skin type remains the same!

    • I started using this products 3 days ago and I'm in love with the texture. It's a silky smooth clear gel that disappears on my skin. It leaves my eye area really smooth and soft. Love it.

    Addicted!
    • I am new to Paula's Choice products and ordered a plethora of samples. I have used this moisturizer TWICE (after PC cleanser) and already see a dramatic improvement in my skin. The flakes on my cheeks/chin are nearly gone and it keeps my t-zone oil in check. Looks beautiful under my Laura Mercier mineral powder, doesn't feel heavy, hydrates wonderfully, and I love the texture! It's a silky gel serum that I don't even know how to describe. Can't wait till my full size gets here!

    Lightweight and Silky PM moisturizer
    • This is a fantastic evening moisturizer. I've tried other moisturizers before, but most have felt heavy and clogging on my skin. This is perfect for my skin tone! It is incredibly light weight, and a pea sized amount is enough to cover my whole face. It's the perfect finishing touch to my PM skincare routine, and it layers great over my serums. I'd recommend this for anyone with normal to oily skin, and it's great for blemish prone skin. Drier skin types might need something more emollient.

    Calming, Silky Moisturizer
    • Of all the skin care I own, this moisturizer is the nicest to actually apply and feels fantastic on my skin. The texture is gloriously smooth and hydrating without being heavy. Somehow, no matter how hot it gets in my room, it always stays cool which makes it more refreshing to put on after a long day. Just like it says, its best for normal/combo skin but I think it would be fantastic for oily skin as well. If you have dry skin, however, its not enough and you'd end up using it all in one go.

    Holy Grail Status
    • This moisturizer is awesome. I think people of all skin types will like it. I love the gel consistency and I look forward to putting it on my skin at night. It is also perfect for under makeup. My husband likes it too because it goes on light and doesn't leave him feeling greasy. I hope this never gets discontinued!

    Double Duty, Great Primer
    • I am in LOVE with this product. It keeps my dry areas from getting flakey, and keeps the oil in my T zone in check all day. It works fantastically as a primer, as it keeps makeup from settling in pores and gives my skin just enough slip so foundation glides on. Two ounces has lasted me almost five months, you only need a small amount.

    2 More Converts
    • I'm in my 50s and this is the first moisturizer I've every been able to use that doesn't break out my skin. I tried this moisturizer and I love it - no breakouts and the drier parts of my face are soothed. It's also works for my mother who at 84 still has breakouts. I gave her my tube after she burnt up her face with the PC 1% Retinol (she didn't follow the directions). She used to use Revlon Eterna and Estee Lauder but asked me to reorder this product for her because she also loves it!

    Nice texture but disappointing oil control
    • This feels great going on and dries quickly to feel very matte. I was thrilled when I first tried it because my oily skin doesn't like the feel of most moisturizers. I started using the Skin Balancing line, and it doesn't cause breakouts or sensitivities, but my skin is still greasy and shiny 30 min later. I was hopeful, but very disappointed in the oil control here. Glad to hear it works for others though.

    Love it
    • I have tried many gel moistures and this one is the best so far! Great product, light and feels great on my face. I gave it 4 starts because I think it would be perfect if it moisturize my skin more. I think it would work perfectly for oily skin but I have a combination skin and every time I apply it on my face I feel like I need more. I like paula's in general. all her work and products are based on studies and advance. Keep the hard work.

Should I consider this product if I currently use Paula's Choice Hydralight Moisture-Infusing Lotion?

This is a matter of preference. If you prefer your moisturizer to feel weightless while keeping skin smooth and soft, then Skin Balancing Invisible Finish Moisture Gel is for you. Either formula will take care of dry (but not very dry) skin without feeling heavy or occlusive, and both leave skin matte.

Should I consider this moisturizer or Resist Anti-Aging Clear Skin Hydrator if my concerns are wrinkles and breakouts?

Either moisturizer contains anti-aging ingredients that help your skin look and act younger. Resist Anti-Aging Clear Skin Hydrator was specially formulated for those struggling with wrinkles and breakouts, particularly if your breakouts leave red marks that you'd like to fade. If that describes your skin, go for the Resist option. If not, enjoy the weightless smoothing and anti-aging benefits provided by Skin Balancing Invisible Finish Moisture Gel. Or, you can alternate between the two, applying one in the morning (under your SPF-rated product) and the other at night.

My skin is normal, without any really oily or dry areas. Do I need a moisturizer?

Your skin needs the beneficial ingredients found in our formulations. Our state-of-the-art toners can suffice if you don't want to use moisturizer every day. Our Skin Balancing Moisture Gel and Hydralight Moisture-Infusing Lotion are weightless moisturizers that can make you feel like you aren't wearing anything on your face at all, but your skin is improving from the state-of-the-art ingredients these products supply.
