Love the product, HATE HATE HATE the packaging.
Comments about RADIANCE Renewal Mask - 1.7 oz.:
Paula, please fix the packaging for this product! The pump nozzle is painted silver, and the paint flakes when you squirt the product out. The first time I noticed, it was because it looked like I had applied glitter to my face. Then overnight last night, I'm pretty sure a piece of the silver paint got into my eye and rubbed it raw. Needless to say, I don't want paint in my eye! But also, I don't want little flecks of paint on my skin, either; my skin is very reactive, and I don't know what is in that paint that might affect me. Also, the flakes could have sharp edges that cause micro cuts or tears in skin, and that's not good either. On the positive side, I use this twice a week after a sheet mask and love the way it makes my skin feel and look. However, I will not repurchase unless the packaging is updated to include the plain white pump used in other Paula's products.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Hydrates but not left radiant
from Toronto, ON
I like the product and prefer it to the other masks in PC's collection for hydration however I don't feel like my skin is any more radiant after using it.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This is MAGICAL
I freaking love this mask! This stuff is like a highlight in a bottle! I've used it every night since I got it, so far JUST 3 nights and every morning my skin just looks better and better and feels softer and softer, like a filter has been put on in real life. At 51 yes! I will take this! Now for those complaining on effectiveness not being sufficient. This is not a one trip pony, you will always have to use other products to get a full benefit. This product is like a topper or a booster. It helps plump and add radiance, so it does what is says it will do. I still exfoliate, tone, treat (Vit. C, Retinol, CQ10, Matryxl 1000) and moisturize than add this as my very last step. It is of a beautiful light and creamy consistency that soaks right in. Its perfect and I hope this formula in all its simplicity never gets altered.
Service and delivery comments:
Product arrived on time and great condition as all PC products do.

from New York, NY
I LOVE this product. My skin used to be oily acne prone but after I turned 30 it totally changed and now I feel it lucks moisture and radiance. I have been using this mask every night for the past 3 month and can see major improvements. It does not break me out, my skin feels soft and smooth and it also helps reduce any redness or irritation I have over night. I highly recommend this product !
Great customer service and fast delivery.
Very nice for oily/dehydrated skin
from Austin, TX
I have acne-prone, oily skin but since turning 30, I want skincare that is anti-aging and nourishing without causing breakouts. This mask has a very pleasing, gel texture that does not feel heavy and provides medium hydration. I like to use it when my face feels dehydrated or irritated. I was worried that some of the ingredients (like olive oil) would cause acne but have not noticed any negative side effects. I would definitely recommend trying it, if you are not in need of heavy moisture.
Saved my face while on Tretinoin- Would Buy AGAIN and AGAIN
I purchased this after a recommendation from one of the PC's sales specialist after I started Tretinoin 0.05 (Retin A) for my acne. First couple of times of using tretinoin, it felt like I had a chemical peel (s0 it burned and left my olive skin tone, tomato red) but my dermatologist insisted I keep at it. After about 5-6 uses, he was right, my face didn't burn and was actually getting acclimated to it. After a month of use - my typical oily screen, was suddenly aggravatingly dry around my mouth and chin area - while my tzone remained extremely oily. I suffer from hormonal acne so the majority of my acne was on my chin and jaw line (and scarring on my cheeks). I still wanted to use foundation or concealer to cover my healing pimples but anything i put on, my skin would peel. It looked terrible. It was a side effect of the medication. During the evening, after I put the retin a on my skin, i was advised to use a moisturizer of course, but tried everything, and if it was too rich, I would further break out. Finally out of desperation, called a sales specialist and she recommended this mask. It goes on like a moisturizer so its perfect and after a couple of uses, I stopped peeling. I used argan oil and jojoba oil at one point, and nothing worked like this.It also help with discoloration (and dark spots). I wake up looking way more even toned. It t tacky to the touch initially - but then it sinks in and does not feel uncomfortable whatsoever. Its meant to be slept with, so I don't understand why people complain about that. Its a gel like cream. Its amazing. I use PC's liquid BHA, resist toner, and Benzoyl Peroxides lotions (although I have really limit my use as I try just to stick to BHA) and this has gone beautifully in my regime. I hope it never gets discontinued!

Sticky and dehydrating
After waiting years for a PC gel mask, I was deeply disappointed when I tried this product. Maybe it works better on normal to oily skin, as do most PC products, but on extremely dry skin, this can't be left on the skin as advertised. Any time I have not removed the mask (while still applying my usual nighttime moisturizer, the Skin Recovery mask--which I hope to GOD they don't discontinue), my skin became bone dry. Desert dry. Like middle of winter, sleeping next to a heater and didn't wash my face before bed dry. This is with heavy moisturizer, the PC skin oil, and Aquaphor on top. This mask just can't be left on extremely dry skin.As a rise-off mask, it's meh. Leaves a sticky residue, and that's about it. Again, probably better for people who only mask infrequently, or those with normal/combo/oily skin.I don't usually write reviews, but I fear the direction PC is headed in. I've been an advocate of the brand for years, and the recent discontinuation of so many products while releasing unimpressive new products has me worried. Please test your products more thoroughly for dry skin, and please, PLEASE don't replace the Skin Recovery mask.
Use this once a week and love it!
from South Carolina
I love all the products I use. This one has been my favorite! I use this every Wed night as a rejuvenator for the middle of the week stress that shows on my face. In the morning I can tell a big difference! Smoother, brighter, younger! I will keep buying this!

It does give you radiant look!
from Ottawa, ON
I use this product anywhere from 1-3 times a week. I apply it as the last step of my pm routine, usually omitting any moisturizer but not skipping the Resist serum around my eyes. I don't know what this product does, but you do wake up with radiant skin that has a very nice glow to it. So I give it 5 starts because it delivers on its promise. This is the first brightening product I have tried so far.
Prompt delivery. Solid packaging. No issues.

I'm a skincare junkie who has combo skin that is redness and acne prone...also with some enlarged pore issues. Lucky me! I write all of that because I want to communicate that I need to be careful with what products I use and how often I use them, particularly products with higher concentrations of vitamin C, retinol or niacinamide, or other "active" ingredients. Luckily, this product produced overnight (literally) results with no irritation and I have been slowly able to work it into my routine twice per week. As a skincare junkie, I've sampled hundreds of products over the past two decades of my addiction and I can count on one hand the number of products that produced instant results...this is one of those products. I don't mind that the product is not a rich cream and that it is lightly hydrating, in fact that's a plus for me as my t-zone will break out with thick creams. Yes, it goes on slightly "sticky" for a few seconds but this dries down to a very nice finish. And almost everything makes my eyes water, especially high concentration vitamin C products, but this one, for reasons I wish I knew, doesn't bother me in the least...and it has quite a healthy dose of vitamin C. Ah, the joys of sensitive skin...you never quite know or understand why one thing works and another doesn't...but I'm certainly glad this one does. Brighter skin overnight sounds like a sales pitch but in this case, it's true!
