Helps heal severely dry skin, but is a bit greasy
About Me Minimalist
Comments about SKIN RECOVERY Moisturizer - 2 oz:
I have extremely dry, sensitive skin with moderately severe rosacea. About a month ago I did a complete overhaul of my skin care routine and am now using mostly Paula's Choice products. I saw improvement in my dry skin right away with this moisturizer. I used it twice a day for probably a week, after cleanser, toner, and the 2% BHA liquid exfoliant. My parched skin drank it up and now feels soft and looks dewy! My only complaint is that the moisturizer is pretty heavy. It takes a while to absorb and now tends to make my skin a bit greasy, probably because the chronic dryness is healing. So now I use it only at night, and I predict this will be too heavy to use at all starting in the spring. But it's a lifesaver in the winter!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Essential Moisturizer - year round!
About Me Beauty Conscious, Minimalist
I've Used PC for near 17 years and have seldom been disappointed in a product, delivery or the expertise & courtesy of the customer service team. This moisturizer is a staple to prevent intermittent dryness. It renders a favorable surface for applying makeup. I trust Paula's team to diligently research and apply cutting edge knowledge in the development & tweeking of their product line. I'm 50+ y.o. and consistently receive compliments on skin tone and a healthy glow. PC products fits well with a healthy regimen that includes hydration, nutrition, sleep, fitness and reverence to God.

About Me Beauty Conscious
I ran out of Moisture Boost so I thought I would tray the Skin Recovery. My hubs and I both use the Moisture Boost so I usually have an extra tube on hand and when I ran out I started on the Recovery, he hasn't run out yet but he's close. After about 4 days I noticed a little dermatitis breakout on my chin and small red bumps on my forehead. I used it a few more days before I realized it was from the Recovery, that was the only thing I changed. I stopped Immediately and I'm using CeraVe until the Boost is available again...soon I hope!

Sigh...please bring back Moisture Boost
I agree that this isn't a replacement for the loss of Moisture Boost. I finished my last stocked tube of Moisture Boost, and now I'm stuck using this one. There's nothing wrong with it....I just find this cream to be very similar to the heavy moisturizers you can find at the local drug store - but it's about twice the price for me (in Canadian dollars). Too bad. I can never understand why a popular item like Moisture Boost got discontinued...
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
I really did recover my skin's moisture
from McAllen, TX
I had been looking for a moisturizing face cream since I started experiencing very dry skin on my lower cheeks, yet I was breaking out like crazy in that same area. So, I started using this product after a youtube recommendation in September and have been loving it! I also got the acne kit and use it in that same area mornings and nights. Not only did the acne completely disappear, but this moisturizer helped to the overall look and feel of my skin. Even my make up applies more smoothly and my face looks healthy and glowy. This 2 oz tube lasted me about 2 months and that is cause i use it in my face, neck and even hands. Definitely going to purchase another one!

Replacement for Moisture Boost
from Nashville, TN
I was really disappointed when Moisture Boost Hydrating Treatment cream was discontinued as I had searched so long for the right product for me and had finally found it. Skin Recovery was recommended as a replacement and while I can't say anything negative about it I can tell I'm not getting the same results, at least after a just a week of use. I have very dry skin and apply it right out of the shower. Will hang in there with it and see how it goes over the winter.
This a very rich moisturizer and very helpful in dry Michigan winters. I use it every night in winter after applying Recovery serum and sometimes during the day

Awesome hydrating moisturizer
from Toronto, Canada
I break out a lot around my chin area and have generally sensitive skin- this moisturizer is effective, non irritating and very soothing for my face & neck. I love that it doesn't have a fragrance or any unnecessary ingredients. It definitely makes my skin look and feel softer without irritating my breakouts. Love love love it!

I bought this because my favorite Youtuber kathleenlights raved about it, but I'm honestly pretty disappointed. I have dry and sensitive skin so I thought this would be perfect for me, but for some reason, even though this product is designed for sensitive skin, it slightly irritated me. Every morning when I put this on I can't help but notice one or two zits a few hours later. I will still continue to use it though because it is a good moisturizer but I just wish my skin was compatible with it :(

About Me Beauty Expert
Wow! This stuff is amazing. I have super dry and dehydrated skin due to medications. I suffer with adult acne and dry skin, which combined, is one of the hardest skin conditions to treat. With Paula's choice my skin is finally balanced and looking great! I use this lotion with 2 drops of joboba oil at night and the next morning my skin is plump and radiant. Please don't discontinue this product! I have spent a fortune looking for good skin care, from Channel to Aveeno and nothing has ever worked as good as PC. I will forever be a customer- thank you Paul and team!
