    Love the smell
    • I have no idea why there are some reviews that dislike the smell (which is from the cucumber extract). I love it. It's light and, unlike one reviewer, do not find that it lingers. I wish more PC products had it (I only know of the 1% BHA lotion and Skin Recovery moisturizer having it). It's not like it's an artificial, potentially problematic fragrance. However, I find this to be a bit too hydrating and use Paula's Skin Balancing Moisture Gel instead.

    Good lotion so far!
    • I purchased some samples to try, great option BTW, and while I did notice the smell that other reviews have mentioned, it goes away after a few minutes. Smells more like a grassy/cucumber smell to me. But aside from that, I really like this lotion! have used it at night over my vitamin C serum and think my skin looks pretty good. I have combination skin and it hasn't broken out or anything, so it's a winner for me!

    I LOVE THE SCENT!
    • One of Paula's best! I enjoy using this twice a day on my face and neck. I would use it all over my body if it wasn't so expensive. And, I LOVE THE SCENT! (Overly scented products and heavy perfumes give me migraines. HYDRALIGHT MOISTURE-INFUSING LOTION does not bother me at all. It is light and fresh.)

    Not for me
    • I absolutely LOVE PC products! They have done wonders for my skin. I usually use the Skin Balance Invisible Finish gel and thought I would test the Hydralight. I have oily skin and unfortunately the Hydralight did not help. If applying in the morning, by midday my T zone (specifically my forehead) was very shiny and felt as oily as it usually did. I will be switching back to my usual moisturiser as it had a very matte look which is good for me.

    NOT FOR ME
    • Like the light texture, and the way it feels. 4 stars would have been 5 stars sans smell. I cannot get past the horrible smell. Wish I had ordered the Balancing Gel instead. Newer does not always equal better. I have used PC from day one and love her products. Most of them are more effective than high-end department store products offered!

    We're sorry this didn't work for you. It's always tricky to pinpoint whether a product clogged pores or if it was somethign that would've happened on its own or due to the combination of products being used. Since all Paula's Choice products are sold with a money-back guarantee, you can always request a refund or exchange.

    BEST MOISTURIZER EVER
    • I noticed a huge decrease in breakouts after switching to this moisturizer. It is very soothing on inflamed skin, and soaks in beautifully - lending supple and soft skin to the touch. On days when my skin is extra dry, I add a few drops of jojoba oil to provide further nourishment. Doing this makes it adaptable to your needs at any given time. Also, before I started using this moisturizer, I had fine lines starting to develop around my eyes - they are gone now.

    pore clogging
    • I've been using this for two wks and I started breaking out badly for two whole wks. Everyday I woke up I had a new big pimple. When I got home from work a new pimple was formed. Will pass remainder to my son.

    Not for me
    • I wanted to like the product due to its description and ingredients but it just irritated my skin. I'm not sure which ingredients caused the irritation (redness, tightness, stinging). The thing was that it worked some days and others it just made matters worse. Perhaps it was an ingredient, the cucumber scent, or the combination of skincare products. It sat on my t-zone and wasn't moisturizing enough for the eye area. I did find it useful for calming ingrown hairs on my legs.

    Nice moisturizer
    • Contrary to a previous comment, I actually LOVE the light cucumber scent. It's so refreshing to me and it's very light, dissipates as fast as the moisturizer absorbs into the skin, and it's from the cucumber extract in the product (it's not a synthetic fragrance). The moisturizer itself is super-lovely and light; it is absorbed immediately and doesn't linger on the skin. I really love this moisturizer; now I want to purchase a PC moisturizer but I love so many that it's hard to choose!

    Well...the smell...
    • I ordered a couple of HYDRALIGHT samples to compare with ] my Skin Balancing moisturiser (which I am very happy with). I agreed with some of the user,s the hydralight moisturiser does have a cucumber -ish smell thogh usually Paula's products do not smell much to me. I got over the smell in the end, it did fade after 5-10 mins and I couldn't smell it anymore. So far the lotion is working well and seems very moisturising but I am not sure if I would switch to it just yet.

    Not great for me
    • This is probably a good moisturizer for many but it seems to break me out. (like most) I loved the light scent, it didn't make me shiny & I thought it was working for me. After a month, month & a half use I've backed off using this & have gone back to not using a moisturizer. :(Unfortunately my skin is a little acne prone, & it easily turns red/gets irritated.

    Great moisturizer for acne prone skin
    • I have oily, acne prone skin that really begins to take off with breakouts during the hot summer months. This is truly THE only moisturizer out there (and I have tried so many!) that won't break me out, even during the summer. It is also moisturizing enough to keep my skin from drying out during the winter and it gets to 30 below where I live. Great product.

    Nice
    • Bought several samples of this, and a few other moisturizers a while back. Though I already found my perfect moisturizer, this one is very nice too. Moisturizes enough, without being greasy, even now in the hot, humid, caribbean summer. If I should have to stop using my current moisturizer, this will likely be the alternative. Note, I do have to reapply after a few hours, but I recognize that's because my skin is drier now thanks to Differin.

    Loved it, but not moisturizing enough for me
    • I bought this since my skin tends to be greasy by mid-day. I LOVE the consistency of this moisturizer, it is super light. My skin felt amazing after putting it on. However, I also purchased the Clear BHA exfoliant at the same time as I purchased this, and after a week, my skin was a bit flaky and dry. I ended up purchasing the Skin Recovery Moisturizer to use at night instead, for added moisture. But I'm still holding on to this one for a day cream when I don't need SPF!

    Good moisturizer
    • I tried the Resist Clear Skin Hydrator and it gave me small white bumps; I'm guessing it was too much for my blemish prone skin. The Paula's Choice team then suggested this. I was afraid it wouldn't be enough for dry skin, but it is. I has a light cucumber scent that I actually really enjoy & find relaxing(it has cucumber in it). Paula has made it difficult to try any other skin care line!

    Good for combi skin, stings a little with acne cream
    • I bought Clear Regular Strength Acne, Earth Sourced Toner, Resist C15, Redness Relief, Hydralight lotion, Hydralight Shine-Free SPF30, Shine Stopper together. Smells a little like cucumber.. Not overly moisturizing so not good for really dry skin but good for combination. I use together with the Blemish lotion for example and it stings a little when I put this on.

    Wow!
    • I initially misdiagnosed my skin type as dry/acne-prone and ordered the PC Skin Recovery moisturizer, which sat on the surface of my skin and never fully absorbed. After reassessing my skin type as combination/oily/acne-prone, I ordered this moisturizer and it greatly exceeded my expectations! It hydrates my skin, alleviates my flaky areas, and leaves my complexion smooth and refreshed. I've also noticed a reduction in breakouts. I've never been more confident in my bare skin! Thanks, Paula!

    Hydralight vs. Skin Balancing
    • I originally purchased the Skin Balancing moisturizer and realized that I definitely needed more moisture for my skin type. I exchanged it for the Hydralight and must say I'm completely happy I did! I have fairly normal skin, more on the oily side, and this moisturizer seems to be a perfect balance - not too drying while keeping the oil at bay.

    Love it! The smell is very natural...
    • After reading the reviews, I was skeptical that I would be able to tolerate this product since I am normally very sensitive to any product fragrance or scents. This one, however, has a natural scent which dissipates quickly. It also leaves my skin very soft and without any greasiness. I'm so glad I decided to give it a try!

    Doctors orders
    • I started using this moisturizer weeks ago after seeing my doctor for a skin allergy. He said I needed to find skin care products that were fragrance free, with no 'fluff stuff' in them. I gave him the 'say what' face, and explained my self diagnosed skin care/beauty addiction. He laughed and told me about PC products. I ordered several products, and I have fallen in love. This does not leave my skin shiney, but has given me lasting moisture day after day. Thank you so much y'all.

    Unpleasant smell
    • Wanted to love this moisturizer! I was looking for a lightweight moisturizer with some anti-aging benefits. This seemed to fit the bill. At first the scent is pleasantly cucumber-ish, but as it dries on your skin you are left with a strange smell.

    Like the moisturizer, just not the bottle
    • I really like the moisturizer, it absorbs quickly and doesn't feel greasy, yet still manages to hydrate the rough areas on my cheeks. My only wish would be for a different bottle/tube. The product is quite liquidy and so once I have some product in one hand I have to put the cap back onto the bottle with the other hand. It can be a bit tricky, but if the cap isn't put back on right away, product starts to leak out. A flip cap would be great.

I have normal to oily skin with dry patches. Should I use Hydralight Moisture-Infusing Lotion or Skin Balancing Moisture Gel?

Hydralight Lotion leaves a finish that leaves skin feeling more moisturized than Skin Balancing Moisture Gel. Skin Balancing Moisture Gel leaves a silky matte finish on the skin, and is a better choice for oily to very oily skin with surface dryness or those who need light moisturizing but don't want any after-feel. Both moisturizers work well under makeup.
