Lovely serum, just not sold on it.
from Syracuse, NY
About Me Skin Care Professional
Comments about CALM Repairing Serum - 1 oz:
I've used three bottles of this serum, and I'm just not sure how I feel about the results, or lack of rather. I absolutely love how lightweight and SILKY smooth the texture of this serum is. It feels refreshing to apply, it sinks right into the skin, and just feels so silky soft. I know this is formulated with amazing, skin beneficial ingredients... but I still feel myself hesitating every time I go to repurchase when I run out. I haven't noticed tremendous results with reduction of skin sensitivity or redness in my facial and neck skin. I still have redness after applying this morning and evening. I combine this product with the Resist Brightening Essence morning and evening. Maybe it's time to sheet shopping for another Paula's Choice antioxidant serum.
Service and delivery comments:
Delivery is always awesome. My products arrive quickly, packaged nicely.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Hate the container
By Scarlett 90210
About Me Beauty Conscious
This product appears effective as a serum, no effect on redness and the container does not allow you to determine how much to use; it pumps out the same amount every time. I much prefer the serums in tubes.
No problems with service

Holy Amazing Product, Batman!
from Surrey, B.C., Canada
About Me Beauty Expert
I can scarcely believe how perfect this is for my "extreme combination skin w rosácea"!!! (Shout out to perimenopause! ) This is the only serum which somehow: makes my usually-uber-dry cheeks silky (vs. its usual flakiness, which wasn't alleviated by any of the [large # of] other serums that I tried); feels like nothing is there, on my uber-oily forehead, eyelids, nose, and chin!!! All other serums were either too emollient and/or irritated my skin; and is great on my neck, + my above-lip, normal skin"!!!A little goes a long way; 2 pumps' worth easily covers my entire face!!! (If I'm also applying to my neck and décolletage, then I use 3 pumps' worth.) This makes the CALM Repairing Serum quite economical P.S. It's also been doing a really good job of keeping the eczema-plagued backs-of-my-hands from cracking all over the place. (In the Winter, my hubby usually refers 2 my "alligator skin" hands ;-P Not anymore! )
As per usual w Paula's Choice, order delivery was very prompt, and the items were packaged well, protected by packing paper In addition, PC ALWAYS remembers to include an invoice containing prices, which a TON of other retailers forget to do even when I request one. Invoices are important to me, because I need to have them handy when I come back home to Canada thru Customs,

Helps with retinol
from Portland, Oregon
Was having trouble tolerating Paula's retinol even though I was using it just once a week. Bought a few samples of this serum to mix with the retinol and it has helped so much. No more severe flaking or redness and I can tolerate the retinol every 4 days now without any problems. My skin looks clearer and so smooth. Have to order a full size of this now.
used day and night in conjunction with Retin A.1%
from Los Angeles, CA
I used this wonderful product in the AM and PM time.in the morning I use is after MD Perricone's High Potential firming activator and at night with a fe drops of the rest 10 niacin amide booster and a non fragranced moisturizer (oil free) by first aide beauty. Skin has been AMAZING! I use some intense products and am very prone to both breakouts and redness- the really helps with the redness the Retin-A and my general complexion throw at me but my skin looks great, I will say the Retin A has made the Biggest difference in my skin as once I finally got up to the level I needed to I had to acne but have always struggled with redness, this helps a great deal is used as directed and with a GENTLY non-abrasive cleanser.

Great calming serum
from New York
My skin is oily and extremly sensitive, it reacts to heat, cold, sun, dry air etc. This serum brings me relief in minutes. After applying it skin really calms down. Even my mom noticed changes. Now I am finishing my first bottle (almost 2 month use as directed, I apply generous amount) and will definitely repurchase. It works great under moisturizer and does not make skin oily or greasy.
Awesome as a primer!
I've been using this product in the morning over my Clear Regular strength BHA and under my Resist tinted sunscreen and it rocks! Its the perfect amount of light hydration to smooth without causing excess oiliness!

Did nothing for me
from Chicago, IL
I've been using it for around a week and nothing has really happened. It hasn't reduced reddening or has done anything at all, maybe moisturizing? I haven't seen any results, and I'm sort of disappointed. It didn't react with my skin, or do anything at all.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

nice texture, no much redness calming
from Dallas, TX
I really like how lightweight it is, but the calming effect is not obvious and I'm on my third bottle
non irritating, light hydration
About Me Beauty Conscious, Minimalist
I don't need a facial moisturizer, but I do need hydration after cleansing and exfoliating. Moisturizers make my face break out but this doesn't.The ingredients Hyaluronates and Ceramides work well for my skin.I only use this at night so I can't comment whether it layers well with sunscreen, makeup, etc.I have used it daily for 21 days. This doesn't cause negative reactions, but it doesn't cause any noticeable improvements either. Thus the four rather than five star rating.
