Great eye cream
from Issaquah. Washington
About Me Beauty Conscious
Comments about SKIN RECOVERY Moisturizer - 2 oz:
This is my daytime eye cream and I can see a difference. I use the actual eye PC cream for night as it is a bit heavy for day but it doesn't irritate my eyes and everything does!! All you need is a pea size and it makes my fine lines blurr out and is starting to take the dryness away. Love it and doesn't irritate my eyes either so I am happy
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

superlative Heavy Moisturizer
from San Francisco, CA
About Me Minimalist
Outstanding moisturizer for me, surpassed only by Creme De La Mer (which is way too pricey for me!) This thick cream spreads slowly and evenly over my dry-ish skin, making an easy application, but then sinks into my skin nicely and fairly quickly. Leaves skin hydrated, supple and soft for almost a full 12 hours, and really helps with redness. I use it over the Clinical 1% Retinol and the 8% AHA products, and this moisturizer works very effectively to soothe and calm and hydrate after these sometimes taxing and drying treatments. I apply generously near and under the eyes, with no other eye cream, as this formula hydrates so well. If you have dry skin, you really should at least get a few samples of this and try it. Highest recommendations from me!

I use this with the 10% Niacin I'm idea booster. It goes on smoothly, makes skin radiant and moisturizes well.

Doesn't last. :/
I got a sample of this to try out instead of my usual CeraVe Moisturizing Cream, but this is not nearly as effective as CeraVe, even with twice daily use. Within a few hours, my skin felt tight and dry. It also still makes the sides of my nose burn, and I am trying to figure out if it's the fatty alcohols.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I wish I didn't have a reaction to it
from San Diego
My friend had suggested I used this moisturizer while undergoing Retin-A treatment. She bought a tube of it for me. It worked wonders to help with the resulting peeling and dryness associated with the Retin-A. This was my first time ever using Retin-A and did not know what to expect.Soon after I begin to notice the skin around my eyes, especially my eyelids, became irritated and itchy and scaly. I attributed to the retin-a since it was the only harsh product I was using. I stopped using retin-a, but the irritation continued. I figured it was because I was still dealing with the damage done. I continued to use this moisturizer until I ran out. At one point, I just switched to using Aquafor to calm it down, which worked.I used another moisturizer for about a month and the eye irritation went away. I remembered how much I loved this moisturizer so I ordered it myself this time from this website. I never attributed my eye irritation to this product. Fast forward to only 3 days using it, and I have the same eye irritation issues as before. This time, I cannot blame retin-a as I have not been using it for months. This is unfortunate because I really like how the rest of my skin feels. I would still recommend it, but tell them about my experience with it. I don't normally have this kinds of reaction to anything I use. I will as far as saying the skin on my face is not sensitive.

As someone with sensitive, dry skin I love this!
from Modesto, CA
As someone with dry and sensitive skin, I really needed something gentle that also deeply moisturizes my skin. Lucky for me, this has both those qualities. I have tried a lot of moisturizers and, strangely, a lot of moisturizers break me out (I very rarely get acne if it isn't a reaction to a product I am using, like one pimple a year maximum), or feel too heavy and greasy, or just simply aren't moisturizing enough.I use this 5-6 nights a week as my nighttime moisturizer and then the other two nights, I use one with retinol in it. I was using a retinol cream every night, but find I can't use my exfoliant with a retinol cream or my face will peel, but not with this moisturizer, thankfully. I exfoliate twice a week and put a day or two between using my exfoliant and using my retinol cream. So far, so good. Glad I found this!

i wanted to love this, and i did, it's so moisturizing and smooth and makes your skin so soft, but i think it's too heavy for my skin, which is normal to dry, it may be the culprit for some blemishes, since i used it for two weeks, then noticed a deep pimple, stopped for a few weeks, then began again and again after a week or two, another deep pimple. So i think ill stop using it.

from Los Angles, CA
I have extreme combo skin with dry patches on my cheeks and an oily T-zone. At night, I need a good moisturizer to bring my cheeks into balance. My criteria are: no petrolatum or mineral oil, fragrance-free, non-irritating, must last all night. Most of PCs emollient night creams meet my first 3 criteria, but I've been having a heck of a time finding one that lasts through the night. Unfortunately, Skin Recover Moisturizer was one that lacked longevity on my skin, even when liberally applied.The product is a white cream with an inoffensive scent. It is very rich, slightly stiff in consistency, but spreads easily. When first applied, it feels very soothing and moisturizing. Halfway though the night, I can feel that it has started to "fade" in terms of keeping my cheeks hydrated. By the morning, my cheeks feel dry and tight, and slightly irritated. I get much better results with drugstore creams such as CeraVe Skin Renewing Night Cream or Cetaphil Eczema Calming Body Moisturizer.

The best I've found for dry, sensitive skin
from Santa Cruz, CA
This is the best moisturizer I have ever used for my dry, sensitive skin. I mix it with the Clinical Retinol 1%, put it over top of one of Paula's AHA products, and sometimes layer it under my sunscreen during the day. I've even found that it even helps the occasional breakout heal faster. It is very emollient and absorbs quickly. I have better skin at 28 than I did at 22 thanks to using Paula's products for the past 3 years!

I went through a tube of both the Skin Recovery and Moisture Boost lotions, and found them interchangeable in terms of how well moisturized my skin felt afterwards, which was barely. They absorb within a few minutes and leave your skin feeling almost just as dry as before. I'm looking for something that will keep my skin feeling soft and dewy for at least a few hours. Perhaps some of the ingredients in the Paula's Choice products are good for my skin in the long term, but the short-term effect is disappointing.
