    Fire!
    • Ive tried this mask twice since receiving it in the Skin Recovery set. I don't know what is in this that I'm reacting to, but it sets me on fire! I have facial redness but I'm not usually sensitive to things even with fragrance or a little bit of stinging but this was just awful. Couldn't leave it on past a minute. Will be going back.

    AMAZING!!!
    • I recently came across Paula's Choice, and I am won't be going back! I have extremely sensitive skin, Rosacea, eczema, and very very dry skin. I started with the Skin Recovery Cleanser, Toner, and AHA gel - all of which I love! Unfortunately, the AM and PM moisturizers still left my skin dry and stung when applied. I decided to give the Skin Recovery mask a try and it is AMAZING!! My skin was so soft and visibly less red/irritated the next morning! It's now my PM moisturizer!

    Not great
    • This product has alcohol in it, no wonder why my skin burns every time I apply it. Instead of calming my skin, it irritates it even more. I got past the burning since it only lasts a few minutes after applying, but the I'm giving it 2 stars because it also didn't do anything for my dry skin, even after leaving it on overnight.

    Hello, and thank you for sharing your experience - we're sorry to hear this didn't work in the way you expected! The alcohol included in the mask is cetearyl alcohol, a fatty alcohol that serves as an emollient, and is not the same as drying alcohols such as SD alcohol or alcohol denatured. You can read more about cetearyl alcohol here. We encourage you to reach out to a member of our Customer Care team to see about a possible exchange or refund.

    Best mask for sensitive/irritated skin
    • I absolutely adore this face mask. I tend to get irritated skin quite easily, especially with the seasons changing. This mask sorts it right out. I'll put it on at night and sleep with it, all those red, irritated, dry and scaly patches will be gone in the morning. It's really comfortable to sleep with as well. I've previously tried Kiehls overnight mask and found that annoying since it was quite sticky. Also great for flights with their dry air. It's clear so no-one will know you've got it on.

    Great Moisturizer for Super Dry Skin
    • I moved recently to a city with a much colder climate, and my skin freaked out. It was itching and burning constantly, and the PC Skin Replenishing Moisturizer wasn't cutting it anymore. I tried this out as a regular, nighttime moisturizer, and my skin looks great and feels normal again. I now use this every night and the itching, burning, and sensitivity are gone! Thanks, Paula!!!

    Wonderful! Try it!!
    • I've been using this for years, and it is one of my all-time favorite PC products. I have a mighty nighty-night facial treatment routine and about every third day I crown it with an application of this stuff. I sleep in it. The difference in skin texture and softness in the morning is amazing.

    Oh my God!!!!
    • This stuff is freaking amazing. Bought it for my face for winter. But I have some dermatitis on my arms. The itching was driving me crazy. I tried everything. Cetaphi. Cerave. Loccitane And avene. Nothing helped. So I tried this mask on my arms. Not only did the itching stop immediately but my skin is actually starting to heal. Thank you!

    Gorgeous Soft Skin - Finally!
    • I have tried just about everything in Paula's Choice of fine products - but this may be the holy grail of skincare. My skin is fair, very reactive, rosacea, hormonal breakouts with blackheads on my nose - I am 51. My approach before was to be harsher, more of a demolition approach. Finally ... treat my sensitive very dry in the cooler to winter months instead of thinking about pores. It works!! This product makes my skin perfect - lines, redness - everything fading - use as a moisturizer!!

    Nice mask
    • I'm not sure if it's safe to apply it all over the face as a night mask. But I use it as under-eye mask. Also I use it as a regular mask for 20-40 minutes.

    Not good:(
    • I have purchased this product having high hopes. I have normal/dry skin with occasional dry patches. It itches when applied. Idon't even know how you can leave it on overnight. Had to take it off after few minutes due to burning/itchy feeling. Called cust service-not very helpful with suggesting another product or finding out what the problem was. Very dissapointed.

    Perfect eye cream.
    • Even though I have oily skin on my face, and generally do not use very emollient products, I started noticing signs of aging around my eyes in my mid-20s. Using retinol moisturizers too frequently caused extra flaking and irritation. The area needed something entirely separate. Sure enough, this product was perfect. I apply it in the morning, before bed, and sometimes during the day, letting it soak in instead of rinsing it off. As a result, my eye area regained much of its elasticity.

    Amazing!
    • Oh. Em. Gee. I got a few samples of this, and the very first time I used it, I woke up to skin that feels like velvet. The only drawback - I fear I may give myself breakouts because I can't stop touching my face.

    Pretty Good
    • I like this product but I'm not as in love with it as with other PC products. It does hydrate and I've mostly used it as a mask. I really like it for my under eye area (always careful not to get in eye). Not sure if I will repurchase but will use the rest of the tube.

    Possibly your new all time favourite moisturizer!
    • Just started using it but really loving it. Although it is a mask, i think it can double up as a moisturizer for people with moderately dry skin, who do have mild acne as well, at night. Althought it is thick, it does not have a greasy feeling on the face. It almost seems to adsorb into the face upon immediate application, allowing me to wake up with a soft and smooth feeling on the face. Plus, with the quantity and quality you are getting for the price, it is really value for money.

    Saved my skin!!
    • I don't write reviews often but I have to for this. The PC Clear line for acne cured me but I was left with really dry skin. I decided to try the skin recovery mask and after the first wear overnight I woke up with moisturized, soft, no longer scaly skin. It's miraculous. THANK YOU PAULA'S CHOICE!! Your products have made me happy and confident again.

    Now I get to use face masks too! Thx PC!
    • I dont use masks cuz all others irritate my sensitive rosacea prone skin. But this soothes! & I love that I can apply it all around my eyes & even on my lips, neck, chest and rub the rest into my hands like a moisturizer. It leaves a matte finish not unlike Cerave cream. I find the Skin Recovery Replenishing Moisturizer more emollient, shinier and better suited as a moisturizer for my very dry skin than this. But love this for a mask. I've gone from never using masks to using this 4 x a week!

    Amazing moisturizer
    • I started using this product when my oily skin suddenly became super dry one winter. Nothing I had made any difference, so I ordered samples of this mask and 2 dry skin moisturizers from Paula's Choice. I ended up ordering one moisturizer and this mask. The combination completely took care of the terribly dry skin on my face. I've ended up using this mask as a moisturizer and my skin loves it. It doesn't feel oily, goes on smooth and absorbs quickly. Neutral smell, no chemical nastiness.

    Is it a Mask or Night Cream?
    • I use every night as an eye cream and on my entire face over night when my face is feeling like it needs a little extra love. When I wake up in the morning, my skin feels soft and rejuvenated. Thankfully the search for the perfect eye/night face cream is over!

    Thanks for your review! This mask may be used as a rinse-off mask when needed, and is also fine to use as a nighttime moisturizer or eye cream by those with dry to very dry skin.

    One mask, many uses
    • I have oily skin but my chin gets dry and peeling in the winter especially when I use Retin-A. I use this mask in the winter as a night treatment and it really helps. My mom uses this mask as moisturizer. Somehow most of creams (other companies and even few of Paula's) make her eyes feel dry and itchy after an hour of so after applying (I can't figure out what it is). This mask is perfect, no irritation whatsoever!

    Miracle Moisturizer for Night AND Day!
    • Awesome, awesome, awesome! I could stop here, but I won't! I first used this as a nighttime mask, once a week or so. Then, after having some dry instances during the day, I tried using it every night by just putting a thin layer under my eyes, on my forehead lines and laugh lines. Super WOW! If that was good, then more is better, right? YUP!!! Now I use it at night after my serums, and in the morning after the serums but before the oil blotter. This is the Holy Grail of moisturizers!

    Best product ever
    • This is the best night cream I have ever used, my skin doesn´t breakout and in the morning it feels fresh, specially the eye area. Also I went through radio therapy for breast cancer and this was the only thing that helped me dealing with the side effects on my skin (irritation, dryness, pain, etc.).

    Love it!
    • I use this mask as a night cream, particularly this winter when the coldness made my skin freak out! I had this dry patch over my eye that no cream or hydrocortisone could touch, and it was making me look a million years old and it was spreading. This combined with the skin recovery serum knocked it out in about a week, and it's been gone for months. It's also thick, but it has not been in any way acne-producing, which is awesome.

Detailed instructions on how/when to apply your Paula's Choice products can be found in our How to Put Together Your Own Skincare Routine article.

I thought Paula didn't like masks of any kind. Did she change her mind?

It is true that Paula is not a big fan of most masks but mostly because so many contain irritating ingredients or are poorly formulated. Paula decided to formulate a superior moisturizing mask that not only softens the skin but also soothes and boosts skin's moisture reserves. The emollients, repairing ingredients, anti-irritants, and antioxidants are an essential element of keeping normal to very dry skin healthy and radiant, not to mention younger.

For best results, how often do I need to use Skin Recovery Hydrating Treatment Mask?

Skin Recovery Mask can be used as often as needed. How often you use it depends on your skin type and personal preference. Those with normal skin can use this mask once per week, morning or evening, after cleansing. Those with dry skin will enjoy using this mask more frequently, preferably 2–3 times per week, with one of those times being enjoyed as an overnight treatment. Someone with very dry, dehydrated skin should use this mask (or a very emollient moisturizer) once per day, morning or evening, until dryness has improved.

What is the difference between Skin Recovery Hydrating Treatment Mask and Paula's moisturizers for normal to very dry skin? Couldn't I just use Skin Recovery Replenishing Moisturizer as a moisturizing mask?

Skin Recovery Mask has a thicker, creamier texture than Paula's Choice nighttime moisturizers. Since it is meant to be used as a mask (occasionally being left on the skin overnight if the customer prefers or their skin needs this), it has a more slippery, emollient feel than most moisturizers.
