Smells like vaseline
By Sean Duffy

About Me Budget Buyer
Comments about Hydralight Cleanser - 16 oz:
I used the sample and found that it reminded me of the smell and feel of petroleum jelly. Which is fine efficiency-wise, as I use Vaseline to create a barrier for skin when I need it, and it did cleanse without a problem. But for a cleanser, I have liked some of the others better for their "special somethings," usually a question of texture and feeling more refreshed and possibly moisturized depending on the occasion. As a utilitarian sensitive skin solution it works for me, but not a keeper when there are others that have not the smell. Maybe my sample was just off or something?
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

About Me Brand Buyer
I used a full bottle of this cleanser, and I thought it worked alright. I am experimenting with different cleansers for my sensitive, acne-prone skin and thought I'd give this one a try. The formula is very gentle, with a gel-like texture. I think this is great for use with a Clarisonic because the cleanser does not dissipate as your massage it into your skin. I would not recommend this cleanser if you have very oily skin or are trying to remove makeup: I did not feel especially well-cleansed after using this item. I felt like I needed to use a second cleanser afterwards to remove all makeup and excess oil. I think this is a great option if you have dry to normal skin, but this is just not a great option for removing makeup.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

A truly refreshing cleanser that glides effortlessly over skin and rinses without leaving any residue. It doesn't get much gentler than this.Question - why is this always on sale?

I use this product twice daily and feel I'm cleansing long enough to remove makeup. However when I'm toning I notice there is still makeup coming off on the toning pad. I feel my face is not getting clean enough before I apply the products. I have rosacea so I'm careful what I apply to my face. I was using the Skin Recovery Cleanser and Didn't notice this happening but thought this product would be better for me since I have combination skin.

When I first started using it I didn't notice much improvement in my skin, as I was transitioning from wearing makeup and using harsh scrubby type cleansers, and was still getting the super irritated bad break outs and extremely oily skin. But after about a week of using it in combination with the Skin Balancing Ultra Sheer Daily Defense moisturizer, and not wearing makeup, the irritation and breakouts and oil have greatly improved. Now my face doesn't feel clean unless I use this cleanser.The only thing that would make it better would be to add a little BHA for gentle exfoliation. Then it would be perfect IMO
Service and delivery comments:
PC is always prompt and efficient with shipping etc. The products arrived in perfect condition. No complaints on their end. My local post office, on the other hand....

Gentle, yes - Effective, yes
By Jennifer W.
Comments about Hydralight Cleanser - 8 oz:
I really like this cleanser. I use it in the morning only. Not for my night routine. It's very gentle and effective, non drying. Not sure why it's called "gel" it's like a regular cleanser to my but it does not foam up when you use it. I cannot say if it helps remove make up as I only use it in the AM in the shower. I am buying my second big bottle today. I would recommend.

Perfect for my combo skin
By LOIS M.
When I compared written materials on Paula's cleansers, I scoffed at the part that said it would remove eye makeup. Really, who would. Well, I did just for giggles and it actually works. It doesn't burn or sting and it removes waterproof mascara. ('Course, you have to remember to keep your eyes closed....)

A gentle cleanser that doesn't leave skin feeling tight afterwards. Non-irritating on my rosacea.
Love this cleanser
This takes of my makeup in a breeze, leaves no residue, leaves my skin feeling soft and refreshed but not dried out. It does not irritate my sensitive skin/rosacea. Perfect!

I really cannot say enough good things about this cleanser, nor can I say anything bad about it. I just love it. I've gotten distracted by fancy packaging and yummy scents browsing the skincare on store shelves a few times since using this, but time and again I'm reminded why I use this Hydralight Cleanser over all else and continuously revert back to it, happily. It's simple and it works beautifully. It contains nothing unnecessary and has everything that a perfect cleanser should. Bravo.
