Not Moisturizing Enough for Dry Skin
from Seattle, WA
Comments about SKIN RECOVERY Moisturizer - 2 oz:
This product claims to be for Dry/Very Dry skin, but I found it not at all moisturizing enough. I have dry skin (not very dry), and this did not provide nearly enough hydration. I had to use a lot of this every night so I went through the 2oz bottle quickly. On the plus side, it did not irritate my acne-prone skin. I had high hopes for this but I am going back to the Moisture Boost cream.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

About Me Minimalist
I use after each facial cleaning. I can add my makeup immediately after use. I have been using this product for years. Many think I am 12-15 years younger than my age and I believe it is because I hydrate twice a day after washing my face. Thanks Paula's Choice.

About Me Beauty Expert
Recently my skin began reacting with a rash and hives to everything...including products that worked for me in the past. I identified an adverse reaction to soy and niacinamide. I read the ingredients for every PC moisturizer and found this one. I ordered samples of this, the Moisture Boost cleanser, and the Resist Weekly AHA. One use and my skin is calm and clear. What a relief! Already ordered a full size of each. Glad to find these soy and niacinamide free products that work amazingly!
Service and delivery comments:
I am glad that I am able to use this great moisturizer, and hope that you will keep this particular product soy free. Thank you!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Nice but too emollient
About Me Beauty Conscious
The texture and feel of this moisturizer are great and I thought with winter I'd try a different moisturizer in the PC line. The issue for me is that it doesn't absorb all the way- I've tried lightly patting it or lightly rubbing in. It did not irritate my skin which is a plus. My skin is on the more normal end of dry even in the winter so perhaps that's it.

did not work well for me
from Atlanta, GA
This cream was not irritating to my dry sensitive skin, but was not moisturizing enough. My skin was still dry. I had to use a more heavy product in combination.

My skin has been dry and flakey, so I thought I would try this out. Unfortunately it broke me out! I used it for about a month. I started noticing that I slowly started getting more and more small bumps all over my cheeks. I stopped using this product to make sure it was the culprit- and it was! Now the small bumps have turned into large and painful pimples. I think it's going to take at least a month for my acne to go away. I wish I never bought and tried this! However, my skin has been very sensitive and acne-prone lately. It was still very moisturizing, so I would recommend this to the truly dry and non-acne prone people.
Does not sting
By TJ Wasalewis
After living on the east coast all my life with high humidity and oily, acne-prone skin, I move to the dry, arid prairie of Colorado and now I have dry, tight skin. Used Cerave at night on recommendation of dermatologist, but it stung me. This feels great and does not sting. Does not cause acne for me but I don't know if the dryness here has helped cure that or if I FINALLY outgrew it.

Awkward effects...results not expected
I bought the full size and use it both in the morning and at night after my facial cleanser for sensitive skin (another brand that received 5 stars on beautypedia) the resist weightless toner, and as well the 2% BHA liquid. My skin is oily on the forehead and chin while having dry patches on the cheeks and the sides of the nose. I am also very prone to breakouts and have uncontrollable hormonal acne. It is my first time trying Paula's Choice brand. I only used it for two nights and waking up with a moisturized, but not oily face. However, when I used it during the day, my forehead becomes really shiny that I have to blotch and I can see the oil on the blotting sheet; while my face feels tight but not very dry, but to me it was uncomfortable, and this was applied 3 hours ago and all I did was walking around in the house--didn't even go outside during those hours. We have very chilly weather in the low to high 20s here in Iowa and I needed something very moisturized that will also feel heavy or greasy causing me to breakout. When I first applied this Recovery Replenishing moisturizer to my face, it looks greasy and shiny, but give it a little time it will absorb, but I guess too much absorbtion causing my cheeks and the side of my mouth feels tight and shiny, but not greasy anymore, I have to reapplied every 3 hours to have that moisturized feeling again. Maybe it is too early to tell how the products work for me? But so far I am disappointed, and sad to see it go a waste in the trash. I am willing to pay for something that actually works for me, brand doesn't matter and I have tried countless facial products out there, but none seems to like my skin. As for now, the search continues with the thought of perhaps of trying another moisturizer from Paula's line?

not for me
from MOUNT PROSPECT, Illinois
Unfortunately, it did not work for me. I have been trying it out for almost 3 months now, but in vain. It honestly did nothing for moisturizing my skin. It did not broke me out though - which is a great plus, i must say!

I love Paula

Will absolutleyyyy be buying this product again! I'm not one to be writing reviews about a product, but I do have to give credit where it's needed and in this case- definitely needed. I'm in LOVE!! I used to wake up with such dry skin even though I moisturized a ton the night before and felt that as the day went on all of that moisturizer started making my skin so oily to the point I had to blot my face hourly it's pathetic I know. That's probably when realized I should switch things up. I'm a huge Paula's choice fan absolutely love love love their products (if you've never tried a product by paula.. Please do yourself a favor and treat yourself) becasue of the gentleness, I have not once had a breakout which is major becasue that's always my fear when trying something new! It left my skin so soft and radiant looking I had such a natural glow all my friends were commenting and I've gotten them using Paula's choice now too!! HahaThis moisturizer really does help with rosacea and just keeping skin soo hydrated without the super shiny skin in the morning. I use this at night and then splash cold water on my face in the morning to just wash away any excess oils left behind if there were any. Such an amazing product leaving my face so soft and clear I feel as though I don't need to wear any foundation or any heavy makeup!
