My winter favorite
from Denver, CO
About Me Beauty Expert
Comments about SKIN RECOVERY Moisturizer - 2 oz:
This is the perfect moisturizer to apply sparingly in my dry areas under sunscreen in the day, and all over my face at night. It's too rich to use on my oily areas in the day, since my serum and sunscreen provide all the moisture they need. I love the texture of this, it's so thick but it smooths over the skin and absorbs well.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

About Me Beauty Conscious
This is what it is - very basic heavy moisturizer. It's rich without being greasy and keeps skin hydrated throughout the day or overnight. I used it throughout the winter when my skin was getting a bit dry. There is nothing wrong with this product - but there isn't anything outstanding about it either. If you need a basic rich lotion, it fits the bill. If you are looking for something to wow you, this isn't it.

Third time ordering
from Whitby, ON
Love the formula of this. Use it morning and night. At night, I add a couple of drops of the Oil serum, and my face is very soft and smooth in the morning.I wish Paula would do an SPF version of this formula. It is the only thing missing. Otherwise, I love it, and will continue to keep buying it!

I'm 28 and I live in CO so the dry pulls moisture from my skin very quickly. I've struggled with dry skin for 7 year and first heard about paulas choice 2 years tried. I tried this line and liked it but didn't love it. I ventured off tried other lines and found my way back and more in love than ever! The key for dry skin especially for me is to exfoliate daily. I can't use this moisturizer on its own I have to combine it with serums but love the way it finishes everything off.
from Winters, Ca
The best moisturizer for dry skin. I used the hydrating treatment cream for years... since it was released and I never thought I'd find something I love more. This is the ultimate moisturizer for dry and super dry skin. Perfection in a tube.

I would definitely buy this again!
from Lancaster, PA
I usually have combination skin except in the winter it tends to get very dry. I usually don't have a problem with it but this year I developed eczema on my eye and two patches of it on either side of my mouth. I don't know if it was because I was using the 8% exfoliant and it was too much, but anyways this was a lifesaver. I was skeptical about using it because my skin is very sensitive and will break out within 24 hours if it doesn't like something new that I am using. But with this I have had no problems! I have been using it a night (because it doesn't have SPF) after washing my makeup off. On the areas where I have eczema I have been using this and putting Vaseline on top of it to keep in the moisture and I seen immediate results within 24 hours. I would highly recommend this if you have skin like mine.
my new go-to moisturizer
from evanston, il
love love love this moisturizer! i have dry/sensitive skin and eczema. i was on the hunt for a moisturizer after using up my Mustela lotion and this is wayyyy better than i expected. i was going through a rough patch with my skin, where i had tons of texture (ha ha punny) and this helped me get back to my smoother skin. highly recommend this!!!
LOVE LOVE LOVE
I absolutely love this cream. It's soft and silky. I use it as the last step in my nighttime routine. Non greasy but nice and thick for a nighttime moisturizer. My skin feels amazing in the morning!! would definitely recommend this to friends and family
This moisturizer simply does not work as it is proclaimed. It is a bit greasy but I wouldn't mind if it hydrates my skin well. But it doesn't. This is simple not good moisturizer for dry skin (and definitely not for very dry skin). Maybe for medium, but that´s not my case. It absorbs slowly and once it is absorbed, my skin is dry again.I wanted to buy Moisture Boost Hydrating Treatment Cream, since some reviews say that it hydrates more, but they don´t deliver it to my country.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

great for my combination break-out prone skin w/rosacea
from Chicago, IL
i have very sensitive, break-out prone combination skin with rosacea. this works great for me. it is an emollient lotion but absorbs and leaves a nice skin surface after about 15 minutes. i had been using the Calm Normal to Oily lotion for fear of breaking out, but this more moisturizing sensitive skin formula works much better for me
