Comments about Earth Sourced Moisturizer - 2 oz:
I received a sample of this with my recent purchase and was excited to try it. I tried it as my last step in my nighttime routine, after doing my cleansing and toning. The initial application was good, although I was surprised at the smell. Usually PC products are fragrance free, which I appreciate, but this particular product had an odour, albeit somewhat natural I suppose, but it wasn't pleasant. The slip of the product was good, I felt it glided on smoothly and a little went a long way. I was able to use the tiny sample on my whole face, neck and décolletage. About 3 minutes late, once the lotion began to dry, i felt a strange invisible film on my face, almost like a taught drying feeling. If I would smile or try to move my face, I could feel it this lotion on my face. I wouldn't say it acted as a 'moisturizer' because of this reason. My face did not feel moisturized at all. I'm pleased that PC offers samples, and I'm glad I tried this. I just Will not be purchasing This product.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I have had issues with my t-zone, especially the areas right next to my nose where my pores were larger and skin got more oily. I tried the moisturizing gel from PC and that wasn't moisturizing enough but the heavier creams were too much. I found a sample of this that I had ordered a while back after I finished the gel and started trying it out. I put it on in the morning after toning and then my foundation and then the shine stopper. It may be a combination of the shine stopper and the lotion, but I noticed my pores have dramatically shrunk! I used to use the 2% bha liquid almost every day for cleaning those areas and the cotton pad would end up really brown afterwards. I noticed I had not used the bha in a while so I tried it and got hardly any dirt. The pad was only slightly brown. I am so excited I ordered the regular size moisturizer. Thank you, PC:)
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

love most of paulas choice products but..
from new York state
I sampled a multitude of paulas choice products. I've been pleased with many of them, but as much as I wanted to love this line, the moisturizer is ..fine..the toner is adequate and I might use it again, but the moisturizer is not very moisturizing, (which I suppose is good if you want a natural product that is not greasy, but I found the product line of cleanser toner, and moisturizer to be incredibly stinging. As far as some natural products that you can buy in the supermarket it's not a horrible reaction, but I did have to give up the line as it burns. In no way would I put this on ANY babies skin(even though it is stated safe for babies!) I bought a large amount of samples of this product..foolishly I kept using it as I was hoping it was a fluke..as a vegetarian I really wanted to love this product. But I can't in good conscience endorse this.

great for my dry skin
I loved this product. It's great if you have sensitive and or dry skin. My skin has a really bad texture if I use something that breaks me out. It gets red, itchy, and has a weird texture. This calmed down my skin and its a great night time moisturizer.

Not a fan
I use this as a night lotion since it doesn't have SPF. It goes a long way, which would be great if I liked the lotion. It seems to moisturize decently well. The main issue I have is it leaves a greasy residue on my face. I can feel it and it drives me nuts.

My absolute favourite moisturizer. It works like a charm and got rid of my facial eczema. No more doctor prescription creams, I have been free of those for months! I have super sensitive skin and this is amazing for it. It doesn't feel heavy, and moisturizes really well. My skin tone and texture has improved overall too.

Nice texture, but irritating and smelly

About Me Minimalist
I was excited to try Earth Sourced night moisturizer because of its impressive ingredients, especially shea butter and a multitude of botanical oils which are all great for skin. I found the product to be a lovely texture--a mid-weight lotion, elegantly smooth and easy to apply to face without tugging at skin. It felt very light on skin, and soaked in fairly quickly. When first applied, my skin felt well hydrated.On the other hand, I found the scent to be really off-putting. This product contains linseed oil, and that is what I smell very strongly. It smells like a product used for oil painting rather than a cosmetic, and it is a bit sickening for anybody who might be sensitive to smells like this. The lotion stung in my sensitive areas, especially around my nose. The hydration had fairly good longevity, mostly lasting through the night, but my skin didn't feel as refreshed as it does with PC Resist Barrier Repair.Overall, I would not consider a full purchase of this product.

I typically do not have sensitive skin. As soon as I put this product on, I could not get it off fast enough. It immediately made my skin burn and left a sticky gross residue. I am new at exploring Paula's Choice products and this makes me skeptical of the whole line.

I am so glad I bought this moisturizer. I am long time customer and use happily many of Paula's choice products. This was a big surprise. I have combination skin and could't find a good solution for parts of my face with somewhat oily skin (still with some pores). This one is wonderful. It feels so good and breathable on my skin. Please continue making it !
Okay so i tried the sampler specifically the moisturizer, but i have been using ta cleanser that my dermatologist gives me. it's been two years, he has given me a very very light cleansing gel .But still with my Combo Skin, my face gets easily red and dry on parts of my face. So he suggested over the counter creams that unfortunately did not work. (i don't have lot of money so he tries his best to work with my budget) Anyway, most creams would just lay on my skin and sometimes became more irritated. Paula's Choice Earth Sourced Moisturizer: What can i say? MORE LIKE WHAT CAN I NOT SAY?! it was and is like MAGIC. I had red flaky cheeks today and i put some on while looking in the mirror and BAM-it vanished VANISHED right in front of my eyes. I am so grateful for this product, i WILL be buying this. Now- I do notice a film like feel to it, BUT to me it's not a big deal if you have nowhere to go Or if you do, wash it off lightly and put foundation over it. I TRULY desire to five star this product because of how FAST it just took my redness away...BUT the film MAY be a concern to other types of makeup. (as a general concern to people) BUT THANK YOU SO MUCH !!!
