Great calming serum
from New York
About Me Beauty Conscious
Comments about CALM Repairing Serum - 1 oz:
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.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

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

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.

Love the lightweight texture
from Madison WI
I love the light weight calming effect I get from this serum. It doesn't make my acne prone skin break out and my rosacea is in check.

About Me Minimalist
This product was great for my redness on my cheeks, but what was not expected was that it cleared up a rash I had been battling for a year. Thank you for such a wonderful product.

Not as expected
I so wanted this product to be right for me as most PC products are just what I need. But like the reviewer below me I was a huge fan of the Clinical serum for redness/irritation. It was an automatic go-to in many situations. It has, alas, been discontinued.This replacement serum is irritating on my skin--the more it stays on, the more irritated my skin becomes. Kind of the opposite reaction I am seeking. Sure wish the other serum would come back or this one could be tweaked. Glad for the people this does work for--lucky you!

By don't have a nickname
PLEASE bring back the either the Clinical Instant Calm Advanced Redness Relief or the Skin Relief Treatment...The aforementioned Clinical product worked so well!!! Too bad...Don't shop Paula's Choice much anymore. All my favorites have been discontinued!..The Clinical product was a jewel.

Good when you mix with a moisturizer.
I ordered this product because I have always wanted to try an antioxidant serum but with my rosacea/sensitive skin I was kind of hesitant because lately everything seems to burn my face. So when I saw the Calm serum I decided to try it. I was disappointed at first because it did burn my skin but I didn't want to give up on it so I tried mixing it with the Calm moisturizer for normal/oily skin and it worked! No more burning! I put the moisturizer in my hand and then 2 pumps of the serum, mix them together and put them on my face over top of my 2% BHA gel at night time only because Im too oily for moisturizer in the day time and I wake up with softer and smoother skin than I have ever had in my life.
