Comments about HYDRALIGHT Cleanser - 16 oz:
My skin was always oily but as I age I find my skin dry during the winter and oily in the summer. I tried the Skin Balancing cleanser but found it left my skin a bit too dry and tight. This summer I switched to this product and it's perfect! It removes the oil without drying and effectively removes makeup. It's low-sudsing and rinses easily, an important feature if you wash your face at the sink.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I've been using this cleanser for over a decade, and I love it! It lives in my shower, and now my teenaged kids use it as well. It's really unscented, as in, it has no smell at all. It doesn't make my skin feel "tight" or over cleansed. I use a different cleanser in the evenings, but my mornings would not be the same without the Hydralight cleanser!

Cleans without irritation
By Coder Girl
from Pleasanton, CA
I use this daily as a face wash used with a Clarisonic Mia in the morning and a washcloth at night. This is gentle on my sensitive skin and has not caused any breakouts. It works well to remove makeup and oil from the T-Zone without drying out the rest of my face.
Service and delivery comments:
All products that I have received from Paula's Choice have arrived in tact without no damage to any of the product containers. Most packages arrive within a week of placing the order, while one arrived a couple days later than one week. The delay had been noted on the USPS tracking site, so I had expected the couple day delay.

Smells like vaseline
By Sean Duffy
from Victoria, BC
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.

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?

from New Brunswick, Canada
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
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

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....)
