Just wasn't for me.

Comments about SKIN BALANCING Moisture Gel - 2 oz:
Thank you for samples. I went online and bought some samples because I heard rave reviews and you use all natural ingredients.I am a dark complexioned african-american woman with combination/oily skin, and was looking for a daily moisturizer. In less than a week after using the product, my skin started peeling, it left white residue on my face, and my face started breaking out. I don't have acne prone skin at all. You seem like a very good company and it was great to get the opportunity to buy samples, as most companies don't allow this, but it just didn't agree with my skin.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

from Southern California
I have sensitive, combination skin with an oily t-zone and normal to dry skin elsewhere. I originally purchased the Hydralight Moisturizer, which is nice, but it always felt a little too heavy on my skin. I received a few samples of the Skin Balancing Moisture Gel and I immediately fell in love with the texture. It's incredibly lightweight and non-greasy, but it's also hydrating for my skin when it's dry. I love the how quickly it absorbs, leaving a matte finish, which is essential for daytime. I apply my tinted mineral sunscreen on top and my skin is perfectly prepped to apply makeup. I use it as my daytime and evening moisturizer with the rest of my PC products.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Moisturizer for oily skin!!
from Los Angeles, CA
Finally a moisturizer for my oily skin! I have always been hesitant about moisturizers being/feeling to heavy for my skin, until now. This product leaves my skin soft, which I instantly noticed after my first try. It's my last step in my night routine, which I always look forward to at the end of the day. :))

I love this gel moisturizer!!!! I am 30 and have acne prone skin and typically a very oily tzone but this product has calmed it right down. Its super light and doesn't leave my skin feeling heavy or greasy. It also makes my skin feel so soft and smooth. Will buy this product forever!

Only Success from Paula's Choice
from San Francisco, CA
I use this for my oily T-zone only because it's moisturizing without being greasy and I don't break out. I use a stronger moisturizer for my cheeks. Ordered most everything from their line as samples. This gel has been my only success.

About Me Beauty Conscious, Minimalist
I bought this as an alternative for my Resist Anti-Aging Clear Skin Hydrator. It broke me out. I wasn't sure if it was really breaking me out or if it was just a coincidence that I broke out at the same time that I started using it, so I took a break and when I tried it again, I broke out again. So after that, I just used it around my eyes but it stung badly. It didn't really moisturize either. Eventually I gave it to my mom because I didn't want to pay for return shipping. To be fair, I have extremely acne-prone skin.
Not enough moisture even for oily skin
I use this product daily in the mornings for about a month and I'm not very impressed with it. I'm 31 and I have an oily skin, though this moisturiser isn't enough to feel soft and hydrated. I had to add serum to my routine. And it feels silicone-y, I don't like it at all.
Where have you been?
Oh my god...where has this been all of my life? I've tried every moisturizer available by PC and for my combination, acne prone, sonewhat sensitive skin....this is the one. I thought that it wouldn't moisturizer enough but it totally does, goes on so smooth, no residue, no adverse reactions, matte finish and feels comfy on my skin. I will continue to buy this 1 for sure!!
Stings my face!
from Seattle, WA
This product says that it's clinically proven not to cause irritation - so why does it hurt my face? I have combination skin - oily T-zone and dry everywhere else. I just started a Paula's skincare routine and I have loved everything about it except for this moisturizer. I use it at night after cleanser, toner, exfoliant, and serum. I noticed that my face would experience a stinging and burning sensation at the end of my routine, so I systematically removed one thing from the routine each night for a week to find out what it was. I was surprised to find that it was the moisturizer! I have discontinued its use but I'm very disappointed.

Hydration for oily skin!
from Buffalo, NY
I use this as a day cream and I love it! It's definitely not a traditional moisturizer and gel is a good description. However it is super lightweight and absorbs fast while leaving your face matte, which is a huge plus if you have any oil issues. It still hydrates, which is important for me as I do live in a cold climate so I need to balance hydration with the oiliness that I'm sometimes prone to. I add a little SPF overtop, since it is not naturally found in this product and I'm good to go!
