    excellent hydration w/out greasiness
    • I've only tried the sample so far but I intend to purchase the full size asap. Even though I have combo skin, this mask felt so good on my face and wasn't greasy at all; instead the texture was silky smooth. I could easily use this as a daytime moisturizer. My skin gets dehydrated easily so I really need something like this that I could use at night to rehydrate and that won't make me look at greasy like when I slather on some oils.

    Disappointed
    • Luckily I ordered a couple samples of this product before purchasing the full size! I really thought it would help some dry patches I have on my face, but this product would never settle into my skin...it kept balling up and sliding all around. I thought maybe if I left it on over night that it would sink in, but nope it all rubbed of into my hair and pillow and I woke up with drier skin than before.

    Perfect on winter skin.
    • When my skin is really crying out for moisture, this is just the thing. I exfoliate really well and then put a nice thin layer of this on for a few hours. It immediately will diminish redness (even from acne) and get rid of any dry patches. I don't really recommend this for when you're breaking out, as it is a very very thick cream. But even though I have acne, it still really works for me. I love Paula's choice.

    Amending my April 30 review
    • I had raved about this as an eye cream. However, I have found that using it for more than 5 days in a row I will start to see tiny white bumps (milia?) forming. Therefore, I have changed my frequency of use and will only use it if my eye area is looking very dry and wrinkled. Too bad, if it wasn't for the milia problem, I would highly recommend it. But now I would say use it with caution. Also, occasionally my skin with burn a bit after application - not every time, just occasionally.

    Not so great
    • I tried the sample first & I also had the stinging feeling. My cheeks are dry/rosacea & I have an oily T-zone. Maybe I'll give it another try as I have more samples.

    Great mask
    • I love this mask. I use another brand too in my skincare routine but mix it up with my fav products from PC and this mask is one of them along with the cream cleanser and toner for normal to dry to very and dry skin. Im buying the Super antioxidant serum with retinol and use it only as my night serum. Anyway i have very dry sensitive skin and i love this mask. I use it over night all over my face under eyes etc and i love that intense hydrating feel when i put it on and it will last very long.

    Not good for sensitive skin!
    • This product, being in the skin recovery line, was billed as being for sensitive dry skin. I was having particularly dry skin this winter and ordered this, thinking it would help. Upon application, it immediately burned and stung my skin. I took it off right away and it left me with red spots for the night. I generally love Paula's choice products, but this mask was a waste of money.

    Would be 5 stars if not for the sting and itching
    • This product works well as an overnight treatment or even a nightly moisturizer for dry skin. However, it stings and then itches like crazy for a while after application. It doesn't seem to be an allergy, as my skin does not become red, flaky, irritated, etc. My skin doesn't look any different after application, it just *feels* itchy and stinging.

    Super Fast Healing
    • The most awesome thing about this product is that if you are in need of some fast healing repair, it delivers. I use it as an overnight healing gem. What better time to take advantage of healing? I use it on my hands which can be dry and cracked in winter and I have bleeding hang nails at times. I also use it around my eyes and dry areas of face overnight. In the morning, my cut hands are almost unnoticeable and my face is supple!!! Can't ask for better. Also love the Vitamin C serum.

    Lifesaver
    • I have awful sensitive/combination skin. With very persistent acne, dry peeling skin and oil all over my face, it's difficult to find a treatment that takes care of one thing without making everything else worse. With just one treatment of this mask I got rid of all of the dry/peeling skin on my face. It hasn't caused any noticeable breakouts and my face feels less oily. This is a feat that no other moisturizer/mask/treatment I've used has ever been able to accomplish. I 100% recommend.

    Amazing eye cream
    • After reading other reviews here I started using this as a night eye cream along with hyaluronic booster. I am waking up to soft skin around my eyes and diminished lines. I am 64. Every other eye cream and moisturizer I have used around my eyes (including Earth and Resist) irritated by eyes and I would wake with puffy lids. I tried Argan oil, but it would migrate over time and get into my eyes. This Skin Recovery mask is my HG eye cream. Have even used it in the day under Smashbox primer.

    Works even for oily skin
    • My oily skin has dry patches and I noticed when I don't keep it moisturized, my skin will break out more so I searched for a deep moisturizing mask and found this one. It works very well in keeping my skin hydrated when it needs it and doesn't cause me to break out which was my concern. This is one product I buy on a regular basis.

    Good Stuff!
    • I use this on my cheeks as a regular nightly moisturizer. Before retinol. Better than the Moisture Boost moisturizer, really. And no breakouts! Just not quite enough. I still add a ton of macadamia oil on top.

    Transformed my skin!!
    • OMG I love love love this! Day & night I was cleansing, toning, exfoliating, treating & moisturizing, all PC products. But my skin was still dry & flaky, even after I added in the Moisture Renewal Oil. I decided to use this as a night moisturizer instead of a mask, my skin has transformed!!! My face is so soft that I can't stop touching it, and it doesn't make me break out. Would buy it by the barrel if I could!!

    Loving the texture
    • It's a great mask. That's all there is to it. The texture is rich, so it can stay on for hours and because it's so lightweight and not oily, you don't even notice :). And unlike other hydrating masks, you skin WILL actually feel quite soft. As someone with eczema, acne-prone, sensitive skin...this was perfect. Grab a sample and see for yourself.

    Lovely, Soothing Mask
    • Lately, on other websites, I have read some disturbing reviews of PC products. Well, all I can say is, I am new to PC products and couldn't be more pleased and happy with all of the products so far. I ordered the entire Skin Recovery line (including this mask) and I love ALL of it. The creamy cleanser, the milky toner, the AHA treatment...and this mask is a dream. I left it on overnight with NO IRRITATION at all. The price is budget friendly and my skin looks great. I couldn't be happier!!

    Great Mask!
    • This is a great mask when you have extremely dry skin and know that putting a cleanser on it will make things worse. It is also great as a leave-on treatment for any dry patches. Not greasy and not drying, just the perfect combination.

    Great, except....
    • The texture of this is a dream. For dry skin it's incredible. Even better than the PC moisturizers for dry skin (which are great). Unfortunately, there is some ingredient here that does cause stinging for me in two situations: 1. if my skin is very sensitized by strong retinol, and then I add this (it hurts) 2. if it creeps into my eyes by accident (hurts!). Would love it if that ingredient could be excluded because it really makes my skin look great.

    not a good experience
    • This cream stung my face within minutes of being applied. I had to rinse my face to get it off. I tried another, rather expensive cream that did the same thing, so at least this one was inexpensive. It would be nice to know what is causing this reaction since I am not the only one that cannot tolerate this cream.

    Best product for cold winter!
    • I tried this first last year after moving back to the midwest because after winter kicked in my rosacea flared up REALLY badly. Nothing I tried seemed to help. Now I wash with the skin recovery cleanser and use the 1% bha and put this on as a moisturizer every day. Skin feels amazing and no more rosacea! My skin feels like it is drinking it in and feels so muchbetter afterwards!

    Fire!
    • Ive tried this mask twice since receiving it in the Skin Recovery set. I don't know what is in this that I'm reacting to, but it sets me on fire! I have facial redness but I'm not usually sensitive to things even with fragrance or a little bit of stinging but this was just awful. Couldn't leave it on past a minute. Will be going back.

Detailed instructions on how/when to apply your Paula's Choice products can be found in our How to Put Together Your Own Skincare Routine article.

I thought Paula didn't like masks of any kind. Did she change her mind?

It is true that Paula is not a big fan of most masks but mostly because so many contain irritating ingredients or are poorly formulated. Paula decided to formulate a superior moisturizing mask that not only softens the skin but also soothes and boosts skin's moisture reserves. The emollients, repairing ingredients, anti-irritants, and antioxidants are an essential element of keeping normal to very dry skin healthy and radiant, not to mention younger.

For best results, how often do I need to use Skin Recovery Hydrating Treatment Mask?

Skin Recovery Mask can be used as often as needed. How often you use it depends on your skin type and personal preference. Those with normal skin can use this mask once per week, morning or evening, after cleansing. Those with dry skin will enjoy using this mask more frequently, preferably 2–3 times per week, with one of those times being enjoyed as an overnight treatment. Someone with very dry, dehydrated skin should use this mask (or a very emollient moisturizer) once per day, morning or evening, until dryness has improved.

What is the difference between Skin Recovery Hydrating Treatment Mask and Paula's moisturizers for normal to very dry skin? Couldn't I just use Skin Recovery Replenishing Moisturizer as a moisturizing mask?

Skin Recovery Mask has a thicker, creamier texture than Paula's Choice nighttime moisturizers. Since it is meant to be used as a mask (occasionally being left on the skin overnight if the customer prefers or their skin needs this), it has a more slippery, emollient feel than most moisturizers.
