Great for special cases
from Ellicott City, Md
About Me Brand Buyer
Comments about SKIN RECOVERY Cleanser - 16 oz:
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.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Not for me
About Me Budget Buyer
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.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Finally happy skin
from Los Angeles, CA
My skin: dry, sensitive & prone to (horrible) breakouts and I live in Southern California which is extra drying.I used to use Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cleanser due to Paula's high ratings and being suitable for all skin types. At least so I thought. Little did I know that it was the weak link in my skin care routine. Thankfully I switched to this cleanser! Redness is almost completely gone. I no longer break out and my skin is happy.When I wear makeup I remove it first with Clinique's Take The Day Off Makeup Remover For Lids, Lashes & Lips and DHC's Cleansing Milk, then follow with this PC cleanser. It is worth taking those extra steps to keep my skin happy and free of irritations. Thank you for making this beautiful cleanser!!!

Best cleanser for sensitive skin!
I would like to thank Paula's Choice for creating this cleanser! I have extremely sensitive skin that can get dry but is also breakout prone. I have tried MANY cleansers both low and high end. I have always found them to either feel greasy, be too drying or not do anything at all and don't remove makeup. Well I finally found it. This is the perfect cleanser for me. It is not drying in the slightest, yet it does not leave a heavy greasy feel. It rinses cleanly and removes my everyday makeup beautifully. I also love the ingredients and the fact that it is fragrance free. Thank you for this wonderful cleanser. There is no other product like this on the market!

Great for adults AND youth learning a skin care routine
from WA state
This is a great cleanser. I was blessed with combination, acne prone skin. Prior to using PC products a few years ago I had horribly dry skin, all the while suffering breakouts. I use this cleanser in the morning, because I use the Clear at night along with exfoliants and other products and my skin feels so great in the morning I don't need much. It soothes my skin and preps for the day.I also want give this product a great review for youngsters learning a skin care routine. I have young pre-teen/teens with good skin, though they started showing signs of needing a little something more than water in the shower and I'd rather they learn a good regime before they really need it. This is gentle, and I can feel good about giving this to my children for use. It is creamy, doesn't sud, and is safe for those learning how to really cleanse the skin of the face without dealing with the risk of harming eyes with foam/suds. They also both use a PC moisturizer and since have even more beautiful skin in their youth.

BEST CREAM CLEANSER EVER.
from Philadelphia, PA
ME: My skin is highly reactive, dry to very dry (on Accutane TWICE), has redness, and is extremely sensitive. I am one of those "allergic to everything" people.USE: I use this product one - two times per day to cleanse my skin. I dampen my skin prior to use. I gently massage it over my skin for a few minutes. It feels very soothing.CHARACTERISTICS: This cleanser is an opaque white product with a creamy consistency. It feels very luxurious on my skin. The viscosity is just right - not too thick, not too thin. It is truly fragrance free and doesn't smell like anything. It doesn't feel heavy, greasy, drying, or anything else that could be considered a bad trait. It's perfect!EXPERIENCE: This cleanser did not cause any irritation to my skin whatsoever. My face becomes LESS RED after use! I have never experienced this before! After rinsing the cleanser off my face (I use filtered water & allow my face to air dry)...it's less red!!! My mind is blown. Any activity where I am rubbing a product onto my skin = my skin getting red/redder but not with this cleanser! The redness I have around my nose, mouth, and cheeks, is significantly reduced. My skin looks more even and feels very soft afterward cleansing. I don't experience any tightness or dryness. This cleanser leaves my skin feeling clean, refreshed, and very smooth!VALUE: I got the 16 fl oz size recently (the bigger style) and it's bigger than my shampoo bottle! The size is incredibly generous for the price. YES! I will definitely be repurchasing!RECCOMMENDATION: I'd highly reccommed this cleanser to people with highly reactive skin like mine (but still do an allergy patch test please!). I'd also reccommed it to those with sensitive skin, redness, dryness, patchiness/dry patches, and anyone looking for an excellent cream cleanser. I'd also recommend it to those with combination skin as it gentle yet effective.HOLY GRAIL: My skin is very happy after I use this cleanser which makes me very happy. This is easily THE BEST CLEANSER I HAVE EVER USED! It's exceptional and unlike anything I've ever used before. I was compelled to write a review because I am in awe of this product.

Absolutely Perfect Cleanser
from Ann Arbor, MI
By far the best cleanser I have ever used in my whole life. I have gotten friends hooked on it as well. I have the driest most flaky skin in the world, and after one use of this I could tell my skin was soothes and moisturized. I can't get enough!

from Regina, SK CANADA
I really like how this product is so creamy & removes all make-up no problem, however, I cannot get past the awful smell of this product. Before the change done within the last year to this product I absolutely loved the smell - it was a clean, mild smell. Now, it's very strong almost a strong alcohol smell to it - very disappointing.

Excellent Cleanser for my dry, mature skin
from Charleston, SC
I tried this as my first Paula's choice product and WOW; it is an excellent cleanser! So glad that I tried this Skin Recovery Cleanser. It is a beautiful product, cleanses well and leaves skin feeling soft, smooth and balanced. I tend to have a little sensitive skin with redness if I use harsh products and there were no reactions to this cleanser except for happy skin! I truly recommend it if you have drier, sensitive or mature skin. You will be pleased.

Poor Makeup Removal
from Saratoga, CA
I've used the Skin Recovery Cleanser for several years and have really been happy. It was a little bit drying but was effective at taking all my makeup off. I just opened a new bottle that I'd had in reserve from my last order several month back. This new formulation does not remove makeup very well. Makeup still shows up on my cotton balls after washing and toning at least twice. I can understand dry/sensitive skin customers wanting a creamier wash but it's a waste of money if you can't get all your makeup off and your face clean with the product.
