Nice texture, but irritating and smelly
from Los Angeles, CA
About Me Minimalist
Comments about Earth Sourced Moisturizer - 2 oz:
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.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

from Norman, OK
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.

About Me Beauty Conscious
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 !
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

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 !!!

Rich, Thick, and goes a long way.
from Dallas, TX
I got this to use as a night moisturizer because it is SPF free. This is the most perfect "Natural" or "Herbalist" moisturizer I have ever used. It was very rich and thick so I just used less of it, which resulted in it lasting quite a while for a tube of moisturizer.
from Indianapolis, Indiana
I love this lotion. I have very finicky sensitive skin. If my face gets dry, I get hives; too oily, and I break out. This lotion is perfect for me. I used to use the hydralight and bought this on a whim. I have not went back to hydralight as this works every day for me regardless of the season. My toddler also has very sensitive skin and none of the baby approved lotions worked for him. This works well, without giving him a rash like the others.

Tacky finish but worth it
About Me Beauty Expert
Goes on smooth after a couple min on my skin felt tacky but dried quickly the formula is great but wouldn't say it's for dry skin that needs a extra boost of moistrizer I'm faithful to this lotion with my combo oily skin simply for the ingredients it is healthy skin care product

from Macedonia, OH
I tried this moisturizer because I liked the sound of the ingredient list. I also ordered the Moisture Boost Hydrating Treatment Cream (which is phenomenal.) The Earth Sourced Moisturizer stung when I applied it. It goes on smoothly but it's almost too slippery and my skin felt a little dry shortly after applying. This is not my favorite Paula's Choice product.

Not quite moisturizing enough
from So. CA
About Me Beauty Conscious, Minimalist
I have only tried a sample of this product, and I can say that a little goes a long way - I got 4 good applications out of the one sachet!I guess my skin must be drier than I think, as although I found this super lightweight lotion penetrating well, it didn't really leave my skin feeling soft to the touch. It just didn't moisturize my skin enough.I am really glad there are so many other choices here at Paula's - with some of the same, very skin healthy and effective ingredients, as I am sure I will find the best moisturizer for my skin.I would recommend this for someone with oily or combination skin type :)

great ingredients, weird finish
from St Louis, MO
I have to agree with another review I noticed. This does moisturize and the ingredients are fantastic, so good for the skin, but the finish is annoying. It leaves a film on the face which makes it feel like you have a layer of wax on. This waxy feeling fades after an hour or two but in the meantime it feels really bad. On the plus side it is moisturizing without being greasy and it has no funky odors. It also spreads easily so a little drop will cover the whole face.
