Leaves my oily/dry combo skin too tight feeling
from Denver, CO
About Me Brand Buyer
Comments about HYDRALIGHT Cleanser - 16 oz:
When I first started learning about products, I tried out gel cleansers since they were suggested for combination skin. Every single one I've used has left my skin too tight feeling and requiring more layers of moisturizer. This is a cleanser that doesn't work for me, but I would absolutely recommend it to a friend that has truly oily skin.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The Best Face Wash I Have Ever Used
from Chicago, IL
About Me Budget Buyer
Let me preface with this: I have tried EVERY cleanser sold in stores. Drug stores, Sephora, Ulta, etc. Every face wash I have ever used has caused my skin some sort of issue. I suppose I may have very sensitive skin. This is unfortunate because my skin is also acne prone, combination, and drys out very easily. I am allergic to traditional acne solutions such as Salicylic Acid and Benzoyl Peroxide. This leaves me with few options. Up until now, my holy grail product was Cetaphil Cleanser. It was the only product that effectively cleansed but did not irritate my skin. However, I was still suffering form break outs as well as dryness and dullness. After using this product, my skin cleared up within about a week. No more sensitivity, no more redness, no more dryness or flaking. Break outs are now far and few in between - while I used to deal with consistent pimples. I cannot recommend this product enough. My only fear is that they will one day stop making it!
Service and delivery comments:
Prompt delivery. Nice packaging.

Nice cleanser, but too harsh for my eyelid dermatitis
I have sensitive skin, but I've had good luck in the past with Paula's Choice products. I have eyelid dermatitis that flares up if the wind blows the wrong way, and one of the main culprits is face cleansers. I never wash my eyelid area. Even so, a little bit always gets on my eyelids when I rinse off the soap no matter how careful I am. This product felt great on the areas of my face that I applied it to. I think it it probably best for people whose skin is at least a touch on the oily side -- my skin is normal to dry and I found it to be just a tad more drying than I like, but it didn't cause skin flakes or anything. However, my eyelids started flaring up almost immediately after I began using it. I gave it a week to see if my skin was simply adjusting or to see if it was a fluke, but as of today I'm discontinuing use. I would recommend this to a friend as long as s/he does not have eyelid dermatitis.

I have been buying it since 2012. Yes, I will buy it again.
from New York
I was really upset to see this discontinued last year. I tried many paula's skin product. But this particular product is really a keeper. I tried the one that replaced this product and was not happy with it. So glad to see them selling this again! I have been using it since 2012 and ever since, I tried other cleansers(kiehl's, fresh, biotherm, obagi, etc...) but this always was a better fit for me than others. I have dry/combination skin type with rosacea. After using this product, it gives a little bit of brighter skin tone, reducing my redness. The cleanser is very gentle. I only use sunscreen. No makeup. I also use chemical exfoliant cleanser from another brand twice/once a week to exfoliate. And am in my late 20's. Hope this helps.
I like it
I use this Cleanser every day ... soft, doesn't irritate my eyes ...Good Job:)

I keep buying this cleanser
from rural Kentucky
I use this twice a day, winter and summer. I used to buy an Arbonne product that was excellent, but very expensive. This Paula's Choice product cleans my combination skin equally well, and improves the texture of the oily areas at my nose and chin, to smooth them, just like the more expansive brand. I also use this to clean my eyes instead of using baby shampoo, and it works well to break up pore blockage there.
My products are always delivered in good shape and very quickly.

Such a great cleanser!
I love this cleanser!!! It has the most lovely texture. It is so gentle on the skin. There is no odor. It doesn't sting. It is so nice for very sensitive skin. I like it better than the Calm Cleanser. I remember when the Moisture Boost cleanser had paragons. Paula slightly reformulated it to leave those out. Can that be done with this product as well? It is just so nice.
WHAT IS IN THIS WONDERFUL CLEANSER?
Let me tell you, this cleanser is the BOMB! Please NEVER discontinue this again. I have at least 5 expensive cleansers in my arsenal and still have not found my holy grail until now. I get skin allergies really bad in the winter and this soothes and calms them and never dries me out like the others. One suggestion though...You need the bottle to read "For All Skin Types". Thank you, Thank you and Thank you very much for such a wonderful formulation.
Thank you for bringing back this excellent product line :)
By Hydralight & Moisture Boost fan
I can't thank you enough for bringing back the Hydralight and Moisture Boost product lines. I am so happy. These are the two cornerstone product lines that kept me with Paula's Choice since day 1, and they always provide the best results with absolutely no irritation or tightness, or dryness or redness....and they don't cause breakouts. These are absolutely the two best product lines that you offer (and the best products lines in any skin care line on the market). I'd like to say that I'll be ordering these items right away, but I have a little bit of those products already stocked up from when you announced that you were discontinuing these two lines. Rest assured, when my supply runs out, I will be ordering these products regularly, as I always have done. Please don't ever stop selling these two wonderful product lines.
should not state that it removes makeup
Does not remove mascara at all, I look like panda bear after using it
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
