Nice mask, but not as moisturizing as I hoped
from Ontario, Canada
About Me Beauty Conscious
Comments about SKIN RECOVERY Hydrating Mask - 4 oz:
I was really excited to use this product as an addition to my regular routine - I have dry skin, especially in the winter, and hoped that using it once or twice per week would be beneficial.The product is nice, but I didn't find it to be particularly effective for me. After patch testing it, I started using it once per week, applying a generous layer after my nighttime skincare routine and leaving it on overnight. I didn't see much of a difference, so I tried bumping it up to twice per week, then three times per week. Honestly, it didn't make my skin feel any more moisturized than when I use my regular moisturizer. Based on the reviews, it seems to work really well for other people, I think it just wasn't effective for me.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Need a Travel Size
This is actually the only Paula's Choice moisturizer that works for my dry /combo, acne prone skin. I tried all of the the moisturizers for combo to dry skin and found that they just sat on top of my skin and didn't deal with dehydration. Even the hyaluronic and oil boosters were ineffective for me. The only moisturizer that sunk in nicely was hydralight, but it was not quite moisturizing enough. I bought this to use as a supplemental mask and have since found that it sinks into my skin and deals with both dryness and dehydration. In the winter I slather it on copiously. In the summer I just pat on a thin layer focusing on my dry cheeks and eyes. I do not notice that it breaks me out, however I use it in conjunction with the clear regular strength BHA and BP. Therefore, even if this were clogging my pores those two products would take care of it. My only wish is that this and all other PC products came in travel sizes! I need a little 2oz. container of this to keep in my carry on for flights. I can't exactly put it in another container without the antioxidants getting compromised and I'd have to take 500 foil packets with me just to go on vacation.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Visible improvement after one use
By Obsessive researcher
from Chicago, IL
I use this product once or twice per week on face and neck and leave it on all night. Because it contains Vit A palmitate, I wash it off in the morning with cleanser then apply sunscreen. I usually use it the day after using an AHA or BHA exfoliating treatment. It's amazing. Wrinkles were noticeably less deep around my mouth and eyes even after just one use. This gives my dry skin a fantastic drink that seems to last several days.
from Egg Harbor Twp, NJ
This product is amazing! I didn't know what to expect when I tried the sample packet of this. All I was hoping for was that it didn't give me any clogged pores. But, wow! It really reduced the redness on my cheeks by my nose, sunk in easily, and left my skin so soft. All that and no clogs whatsoever. Plus, the sample is very generous even for me who uses more than the pea-sized amounts some people stick to. I ordered the full size pretty promptly after trying the sample. If you're curious about it at all, I'd definitely try it!

from Los Angeles
I have extremely acne-prone skin, so I was hesitant to use this mask at first. I am SO IMPRESSED! I use it following the Paula's Choice weekly 10% AHA treatment or 4% BHA foam, and it elimates any minor flaking I had the day after. I leave it on overnight, it doesn't clog my pores, and it leaves my skin so soft and smooth. I love this.
Love this product
My skin is dry and I live in a very dry climate so no matter how well I keep my skin moisturizer, it still needs some extra help during the warmer seasons. I use this product a few times a week at night to help give my skin the moisture it needs. I also use this product when I've had a chemical peel. It helps give my skin the relief it needs while adding moisture.

Can't live without this
Let me just say that I have never written a review about any product before today. I have Dry to Very Dry skin and i came to a point a couple weeks ago where my skin was SO dry and flaky and none of my moisturizers or hydrating masks were doing the trick. I used a generous amount of this as an overnight mask/night time moisturizer for 3 days and my skin was back to it's normal state. Don't know why it's called a mask because it feels more like a really intense moisturizer. I wouldn't rinse it off, but i can see how someone with normal skin type would rinse after because it is very intensely moisturizing. I plan to use this as a nighttime moisturizer from now on!

My skin has been so dry and flaky because of this weird winter/spring we're having- I tried this product once and as soon as I washed the mask off my face was already 100% better and more moisturized than it was the before I put the mask on! If you're looking for a quick fix to your dry flaky skin this is the product for you! Omg absolutely IN LOVE!

Almost a miracle
from Williston, ND
This is the first review I have ever written for anything, but people with eczema need to know this can help! I have used this on the eczema that I get on my hands. It helps to soften the hard crusty skin and helps prevent the cracking skin. I put it on every night before bed,sometimes with Skin Recovery Antioxidant Serum. For me it has been more effective than the Body Butter.

I don't really believe in rating a product. You must personally try it and see how your own skin responds and reacts. My combination skin LOVES this mask. I now use it as my sole nighttime moisturizer after cleansing, exfoliating and retinol treatment. I apply a thin layer all over my face, eyes and neck. I avoid my nose because I'm prone to blackheads. Every morning I wake up to skin that is SOFT AS A BABY'S TUSH! And my fine lines are much diminished!
