Love hate relationship

Comments about Earth Sourced Moisturizer - 2 oz:
I actually like the way this product smells, it has a natural smell and not chemical. The love/hate part comes in in that as much as I like it I am not positive it's the product for me, at least anymore. I have used it for well over a year but I am just noticing now that five, ten minutes after I've used it in the evening my skin feels slightly tight and my question is, is that because this is the wrong product for my skin type? What I like about this product also is that it doesn't seem to break me out which I can be prone to even at my age. So that is one reason I hate to change. It seems as though while rubbing it in it does kind of sit on top of this skin, at first. I'm not saying this moisturizer is a game changer I don't wake up with this incredible glow but it suits my needs. I am just not sure if the tightness means I need a heavier more emollient moisturizer. And let me add I have used many of the moisturizers on Paula's best product list (including her own) and all had their own set of problems.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Feels great until it starts to ball up.
from Phoenix, AZ
I really like the texture, smell, feel of this moisturizer. But it consistently balls up/pills on my face. I've tried to give it plenty of time to dry, but the problem continues. I don't know if it's kind of old or why, but unfortunately I won't continue using it because of this problem.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Not my favourite
from Dublin, Ireland
About Me Beauty Conscious
I tried this moisturizer since it was on sale and I'd like to find the one perfect for my skin. This one is not very great for me, I really don't like the smell and it very average on the moisturizing side.

It's ok. Slightly too heavy
from Vancouver, BC, Canada
I have combo skin, and I tried the Earth Sourced Moisturizer samples and used them for about a week. It is a decent moisturizer, but I find it leaves a heavy and greasy feeling on the skin.Maybe it's just the samples, but the cream is a bit thick and not very easy to spread around on the skin.I prefer the Resist Barrier Repair Moisturizer. That one feels lighter and more comfortable.I think people will drier skin will find this a suitable moisturizer though.

Definitely buying the full size
from tucson, arizona
About Me Beauty Expert
This product is amazing for sensitive combo skin like mine. As soon as I tried it the first time, I could already tell I was going to love it within minutes. I apply this as a last step in my nighttime routine and my pores look drastically smaller and my face looks flawless and even. I love this stuff. Don't understand the bad reviews....I would recommend this to anyone.

Just not for me
from Arrowsic, ME
I ordered 2 samples of this product and used one this morning after my normal AM routine (cleaner, toner, serum). It left a sticky residue on my face that is just now (7 hours later) starting to go away. I already gave away my 2nd sample and I definitely won't be ordering the full-size.
Not for me
from Toronto, Ontario
I received a sample of this with my recent purchase and was excited to try it. I tried it as my last step in my nighttime routine, after doing my cleansing and toning. The initial application was good, although I was surprised at the smell. Usually PC products are fragrance free, which I appreciate, but this particular product had an odour, albeit somewhat natural I suppose, but it wasn't pleasant. The slip of the product was good, I felt it glided on smoothly and a little went a long way. I was able to use the tiny sample on my whole face, neck and décolletage. About 3 minutes late, once the lotion began to dry, i felt a strange invisible film on my face, almost like a taught drying feeling. If I would smile or try to move my face, I could feel it this lotion on my face. I wouldn't say it acted as a 'moisturizer' because of this reason. My face did not feel moisturized at all. I'm pleased that PC offers samples, and I'm glad I tried this. I just Will not be purchasing This product.

By Crazy 'bout Vanilla
from Mesa, AZ
I have had issues with my t-zone, especially the areas right next to my nose where my pores were larger and skin got more oily. I tried the moisturizing gel from PC and that wasn't moisturizing enough but the heavier creams were too much. I found a sample of this that I had ordered a while back after I finished the gel and started trying it out. I put it on in the morning after toning and then my foundation and then the shine stopper. It may be a combination of the shine stopper and the lotion, but I noticed my pores have dramatically shrunk! I used to use the 2% bha liquid almost every day for cleaning those areas and the cotton pad would end up really brown afterwards. I noticed I had not used the bha in a while so I tried it and got hardly any dirt. The pad was only slightly brown. I am so excited I ordered the regular size moisturizer. Thank you, PC:)
love most of paulas choice products but..
from new York state
I sampled a multitude of paulas choice products. I've been pleased with many of them, but as much as I wanted to love this line, the moisturizer is ..fine..the toner is adequate and I might use it again, but the moisturizer is not very moisturizing, (which I suppose is good if you want a natural product that is not greasy, but I found the product line of cleanser toner, and moisturizer to be incredibly stinging. As far as some natural products that you can buy in the supermarket it's not a horrible reaction, but I did have to give up the line as it burns. In no way would I put this on ANY babies skin(even though it is stated safe for babies!) I bought a large amount of samples of this product..foolishly I kept using it as I was hoping it was a fluke..as a vegetarian I really wanted to love this product. But I can't in good conscience endorse this.
