I love this product. My skin takes a beating in winter with indoor dry air. This is perfect moisture. I also use it on my cuticles.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

About Me Beauty Conscious
I started using Paula's Choice products almost a year ago as part of a resolution to start taking care of my skin. I was skeptical that anything but cleanser and moisturizer would really do anything, but this serum is the one thing I can definitively say I notice a difference. My skin feels like the silky smooth serum when I put it on, and the day after I put it on.

I dont understand the hype
from Montreal, Canada
I reaally do not understand the hype and the ratings of this products. The product consistency is not what I was expecting, the product is heavy, oily, silicone-like, and difficult to apply on skin. After a month I did not see any change on my skin and wanted to throw it away.

Perfect winter moisturizer
from Harrisburg, OR
I love this product so much, I couldn't resist getting on the site and doing a review. It's literally the most perfect winter moisturizer for dry skin. It looks like it may be oily, but it soaks in within 5 minutes and makes my skin soft and glowy. Thank you so much for making such a fantastic product! It has zero scent and a little goes a long way.

I love this serum, but I really don't think it fits in the "Recovery" line. It's extremely rich and the next morning after use my skin looks amazing and plump. However, when my skin is irritated, this is not something I would use because it's not really soothing and does nothing to calm skin that I have noticed. But, if your skin is dry, this is terrific, and I prefer this to the Resist serum in dark blue tube.

Extremely Hydrating !
from Ottawa, Canada
Love this product. It is a thick serum but once you apply it to the skin it starts to melt into a smooth oil consistency. Don't apply to much - a pea size amount at most. Give it a little bit to sink in before applying moisturizer. Your skin will glow !!!

Other PC serums are so much better
from Hinsdale, IL
I really disliked this serum, and while I love Paula's Choice and literally own half of the items they produce, the near 5-star rating here makes me highly skeptical of the legitimacy of the review system here.I started out with the ultra-light serum, and should have gone with the old "ain't broke don't fix it" adage. But I wanted to try the others out of curiosity, and figured even if I didn't like them as much I would at least get through the bottle and then go back to the other. This serum is so yucky feeling that I can't use it without mixing it into another thick cream, and even so I hate the heavy, sticky-oily feeling it leaves on my face. I have combination skin and am not afraid of using products with oil!I have tried 3 PC serums:- Skin Balancing: this one comes in second place, as it is good but has way too much silicon in it... might be good if you are also using this as a primer, but I like my products separate),- Skin Recovery: Not a fan of this serum. I have frequently included oils in my routine, but the oily texture of this one is yucky. Would not buy again- Ultra-light: like 3 little bears and porridge, this one is perfect. My favorite PC product of the whole brand.Disappointed that it was so off-putting that I couldn't even bear get through the bottle before going back to my ultra-light.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I was actually using the Resist serum for dry skin, because I was trying to avoid the use of retinol, but I've since given in--I'm hoping for the better. This product glides on effortlessly and seems to absorb better into my skin than the Resist for dry skin. It feels easier to spend the money on something that seems to produce visible results--I've only been sold on the concept of skin serum in the past few years. This is possibly the best I've ever used!

Even works on Oily skin
from Bath, UK
I tired this serum in the night before going bed, It was very smooth and not gressy at all. I was very pleased to see my skin looking and feeling greta the next day. To my suprise, it work well on my oily skin and didnt give me any break out! excellent!

About Me Beauty Conscious, Minimalist
I tried the Skin Recovery Mask, which was amazing, but something about this product doesn't match the mask. I think this leaves my skin looking oily, even tho it absorbs well and doesn't brighten my skin like the mask. That's why 4 stars instead of 5. However it did help with my hyperpigmentation, redness and hasn't made me break out at all. I love this serum and I'm so grateful because i thought my skin would never recover from my severe cystic acne breakout.
