About Me Budget Buyer
Comments about SKIN RECOVERY Cleanser - 16 oz:
My skin is a frustrating combination of dry, sensitive, and acne prone, and most cleansers aggravate at least one of those issues. This cleanser doesn't dry me out, break me out, or redden my skin. I put this down as being good for acne prone skin but only because it doesn't worsen acne, it doesn't actually "treat" acne, but my skin is too dry to have acne treatments in every skincare step.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

My favorite cleanser of all time
By Izzy the Terrible
from Tampabay, Florida
This is by far my favorite cleanser. I have acne prone skin, with over-active sebaceous glands if I'm not very gentle with them - and yet my skin is very easily dried out.This cleanser, however, is the only one I've found (and I've tried them all!) that has been absolutely gentle enough on my skin, moisturizing enough, cleansing enough, etc.Unfortunately, I'm cheap. And while this product is no more or less expensive than other Paula's choice cleansers, it does not go a long way like many others do. I choose to continue to buy Moisture Boost, even though it doesn't nearly boost my moisture levels like this one does.

About Me Brand Buyer
I've been purchasing this product for a number of years. I was not pleased that it is now very thick and harder to apply . I have to add a lot of water to it to cleanse my face. I do not intend to buy this one again.I prefer the old formula.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Perfect for Dry Skin!
By Chicago Gurl
from Chicago, IL
This was my first Paula's Choice product and even though I've only used it twice, I could see and feel a difference in my skin. I'm in my early 20s and I suffer from very dry, sensitive skin and I also have very fair skin and suffer from roseaca. I've used products in the past that were supposed to be designed for roseaca and I never saw a difference. After just one use, I noticed my redness go down which has NEVER happened before. I love the creamy texture, it really hydrated my skin. When I was done cleansing, my face didn't feel tight or dry at all. When I woke up in the morning, my skin was silky smooth and looked bright and my redness had gone down a lot. I love this product!!

Perfect creamy cleanser
from Washington, D.C.
This cleanser has been my saving grace this winter. The texture is rich and creamy but it rinses completely clean. It feels wonderful on my acne-prone and dehydrated skin. This product is definitely a winner!

Not for irritated skin
from brandon, ms
I have dry, very sensitive skin and in need of a soothing cleanser. I hoped this cleanser would help calm my recent irritation from anti-aging products and overall dryness but it actually made my skin feel tighter.

Just what I needed!
from Toronto, Canada
Based on my previous experience with PC products, when I was looking for a gym-bag/travel friendly cleanser this was my first stop. I love that this doesn't have a pump and that I can just throw it in my bag and go. It does a great job of removing sweat (haven't tried it on make up directly as I always use a remover first). My skin doesn't feel tight after using it and I can actually go some time after washing without feeling like I need to lather myself in moisturizer.
Very creamy and gentle
I like this cleanser! I have tried a few that sting if they get near your eyes and this one is really gentle! I use a separate eye makeup remover so I can't judge if it works to remove eye make-up.Will definitely re-order this product!

Great for special cases
from Ellicott City, Md
I use the skin balancing line on a daily basis but I keep this cleanser and the toner on hand. They are both great when sometimes I get my face irritated if I used a heavy hand with the exfoliants or Retin-a but the best use is when I get a professional peel done. Usually after a peel which I get done regularly, my face is very irritated for a week or so and I use this for daily care until I'm done peeling and the return to my regular skin care line. I would definitely recommend keeping on hand the cleanser and toner as an extra for when the skin needs it.

Not for me
I actually tried the cleanser after using the toner and moisturizer in the same Skin Recovery Line. I don't know why, but it irritated the skin on my cheeks which was very unexpected considering I like the toner so much. The texture is great and has a creamy feel. I use a separate make-up remover so that has no impact on my review.
