My favorite cleanser so far
About Me Beauty Conscious
Comments about SKIN RECOVERY Cleanser - 16 oz:
Perfect for my sensitive skin! I never knew cleansing could be so gentle and soothing. Doesn't leave my skin feeling tight and stripped of moisture, doesn't irritate, and feels soft and gentle on the skin. I love everything about it. I always remove my makeup with an oil first, and then I cleanse with this afterwards and it leaves my skin feeling perfectly clean and fresh without stripping my skin of moisture. I have dry and rosacea prone skin in my cheeks and oily, acne prone t-zone and this is perfect for all my concerns. I'd be happy to use this for the rest of my life.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I love this cleanser
from New York
I love this cleanser I feel it revived my dry dull skin. After a month of use I no longer felt symptoms of tight dry skin that had been plaguing me since the summer of 2015. This product left my face feeling clean but not stripped of its natural oils. The only thing I dislike about this cleanser is that it refused to get rid of my blackheads. I understand its a cleanser for sensitive skin but I was really hoping it would get rid of the black heads on my nose and inner cheeks so that the appearance of my enlarged pores would be reduced but no luck. Also despite this being a skin recovery cleanser at rare times it would irritate my skin and I would have to reduce its usage to once a day.

This is a nice cleanser. It doesn't leave your skin dry and tight feeling, but it also doesn't remove eye makeup which I don't like. I won't be ordering this again.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Dried out my skin
I bought it (also paying the ridiculous shipping fee to Europe), hoping Paula knows her stuff and this wouldn't dry out my normal skin like many daily cleansers do, especially since it's marketed to sensitive, dry and very dry skin owners. But I can't spend one minute without a moisturizer after I wash my face with it. :(

I am very happy with this product. I have learned that I prefer using this product with enough water added to my hand to emulsify the product completely before applying to my face. Then I gently massage around my nose and problem areas of blackheads. I find it works very well if used this way.

Not what I expected
I have been using the Moisture Boost cleanser for years, and thought I would give this one a try. I don't feel like it cleans my skin at all, like it just sits on top. It stings my eyes, which is disappointing as I could use the Moisture Boost as a eye makeup remover as well. Unfortunately, this did not work for me, and I will be going back to the Moisture Boost Cleanser.

No more tight and dry feeling after cleansing!
from Seattle, WA
About Me Budget Buyer
I love this cleanser and use it as part of a double cleanse as the first step to remove makeup. It's very gentle and creamy but doesn't leave a film on the skin, which is rare for creamy cleansers. It doesn't leave the skin tight and dry as most other cleansers seem to do to me. LOVE this whole Skin Recovery line!
Finally! A cleanser that delivers
from London, UK
About Me Brand Buyer
This cleanser imparts hydration, cleanses gently, and leaves skin feeling truly nourished, plumped, and supple. I use this as a morning, and evening cleanser; however, I pre-cleanse with Clinique's cleansing oil in the evening before using this one to ensure I have a thoroughly cleansed face. I really love the rich, thick and creamy texture of this cleanser, it makes the cleansing process incredibly enjoyable. As someone with sahara dry skin I covet a hydrated and dewy complexion, I believe this product has aided in helping me achieve that. This is the first product I've bought from Paulas choice, since I've had such a good experience I have now purchased Paulas Choice Resist rehydrating toner. This cleanser and toner = #DreamTeam

I just recently found Paula's choice and I am so glad I did, I tried this cleanser first and I really love it I have dry skin and I would love to give this 5 stars but I gave it 4 because it dries my skin out after I wash with it. I won't stop using it because it clears my face up

Has made a huge difference!
from Phoenix, Arizona
I never thought something like a cleanser (that doesn't spend all that much time on your skin) would have such a huge difference. The gentle, milky texture glides over my face; and even with a small amount a little goes a long way. It removes makeup remarkably well and leaves my skin feeling so soft!
