Only Success from Paula's Choice
from San Francisco, CA
Comments about SKIN BALANCING Moisture Gel - 2 oz:
I use this for my oily T-zone only because it's moisturizing without being greasy and I don't break out. I use a stronger moisturizer for my cheeks. Ordered most everything from their line as samples. This gel has been my only success.

About Me Beauty Conscious, Minimalist
I bought this as an alternative for my Resist Anti-Aging Clear Skin Hydrator. It broke me out. I wasn't sure if it was really breaking me out or if it was just a coincidence that I broke out at the same time that I started using it, so I took a break and when I tried it again, I broke out again. So after that, I just used it around my eyes but it stung badly. It didn't really moisturize either. Eventually I gave it to my mom because I didn't want to pay for return shipping. To be fair, I have extremely acne-prone skin.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Not enough moisture even for oily skin
About Me Beauty Conscious
I use this product daily in the mornings for about a month and I'm not very impressed with it. I'm 31 and I have an oily skin, though this moisturiser isn't enough to feel soft and hydrated. I had to add serum to my routine. And it feels silicone-y, I don't like it at all.
Where have you been?
Oh my god...where has this been all of my life? I've tried every moisturizer available by PC and for my combination, acne prone, sonewhat sensitive skin....this is the one. I thought that it wouldn't moisturizer enough but it totally does, goes on so smooth, no residue, no adverse reactions, matte finish and feels comfy on my skin. I will continue to buy this 1 for sure!!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Stings my face!
from Seattle, WA
This product says that it's clinically proven not to cause irritation - so why does it hurt my face? I have combination skin - oily T-zone and dry everywhere else. I just started a Paula's skincare routine and I have loved everything about it except for this moisturizer. I use it at night after cleanser, toner, exfoliant, and serum. I noticed that my face would experience a stinging and burning sensation at the end of my routine, so I systematically removed one thing from the routine each night for a week to find out what it was. I was surprised to find that it was the moisturizer! I have discontinued its use but I'm very disappointed.

Hydration for oily skin!
from Buffalo, NY
I use this as a day cream and I love it! It's definitely not a traditional moisturizer and gel is a good description. However it is super lightweight and absorbs fast while leaving your face matte, which is a huge plus if you have any oil issues. It still hydrates, which is important for me as I do live in a cold climate so I need to balance hydration with the oiliness that I'm sometimes prone to. I add a little SPF overtop, since it is not naturally found in this product and I'm good to go!
Great Face Primer
from St Petersburg, FL
I absolutely love this product. I think it is great evening moisturizer when you need to do fresh makeup and to not use SPF on your face. It acts as a great face primer This alone provide enough moisture to your face and will act as a primer for your makeup to go much more evenly and smoothly. It keeps shine free of your t-zone. I have combination skin type and works great for me. It also can be used over shiny SPF to reduce the shine. Absolutely love it!
good for me

Great moisturizer but bad packaging
By Dry Skin Sally

About Me Minimalist
This moisturizer is great, it goes on easy, you do not need a lot of it, and it dries immediately. No residue. The lid to the bottle however, does not close tight. I am not sure if it is just mine, or if they are all like that. But the moisturizer spills out everywhere and you end up losing a bunch of the product.
Great for oily skin
from Los Angeles
I have oily/combo skin and this is a wonderful daily moisturizer. The gel keeps it light so I don't break out. I use Moisture Boost Hydrating when I need more moisture and I don't break out from that, either.
