About Me Beauty Conscious
This moisturizer is great because it is light, simple and yet effective. I hate creamy moisturizers that make me break out and I have tried many gel moisturizers that leave me feeling sticky (and also break out). My skin does not react badly to this at all. I have actually never been able to sleep with a moisturizer on without breaking out until I tried this one. I am not sure it would be strong enough for super dry skin but it's perfect for my combination skin.
Effective But Smells Bad

About Me Minimalist
I love the plastic, no-frills tube, that is great for someone who travels 300 days a year, and the way this product works on my skin - no irritation, quick absorbance and dryness relief. I just can't stand its smell which is sort of plasticky.
Miss the old formula
from Closter NJ
Similar to Margo...my skin feels dry and irritated. Please bring back the old formula for Normal to oily skin. I have to go search for something else in the stores.
Unfortunately, not suited for all oily/acne-prone skin.
I initially fell in love with the lightweight consistency and how easily it absorbed into the skin. I thought that it would be a godsend for my combination/oily skin.However, after a couple weeks of consistent use after cleanser, toner, and (night-time) exfoliant, I realized that I was breaking out badly on my cheeks (very unusual for me.) After isolating the problem in my routine, it became clear to me that this moisturizer was the problem. After applying the moisturizer, my face would get irritated and red. The morning after, I would wake up to see some new swollen and red pimples on my cheeks. Overall, I was really excited to start a Paula's Choice skincare routine after hearing so many amazing things about this brand, but unfortunately this product did not work out for me and I am very disappointed.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Great day cream for oily/combination skin!
from Arrowsic, ME
I ordered 2 samples of this product and have used them as my day cream for the past 2 days. I used the product as the last step of my AM routine (cleanser, toner, serum, moisturizer) and I love it! It goes on easily and absorbs very quickly. The finish is silky smooth and would be great under makeup. It isn't overly moisturizing, so it might not be for you if you need intense moisture. I use a super emollient night Cream, so for me this is perfect for daytime use. I will definitely be ordering the full-size!!

great addon moisturizer I use for hydrating dry patches
from Dallas, TX
Prior to last year I had normal/oily combination skin and this was a great product to add over my treatments when I needed something that didn't have extra anti-aging ingredients that might exacerbate patches of dryness. In the last year I have transition to significant changes in my hormones and now I have normal to dry skin with large pores on and around my noes on chin and forehead...what an awesome(!) combo to have. I also seem to be battling issues with sensitive skin and redness these days. When I need a straight moisturizer that won't make my nose area feel greasy and boost hydration, this is my go-to-product for that.
Still the Best
from vernon bc
This product must be the best of the best,,I've tried other products from Paula choice,,So far I keep going back to this product..Although I still love all the paula products for me this is the best..I use it daily and I have no more breakouts and a friend just said to me why are you looking younger?? NO ONE knows I use paula choice..I pray they never get rid of the SKIN BALANCING GEL..Its the BEST OF THE BEST...THANK YOU.

By Pores for Pia
I use this product twice daily. I am 43 and prior to this product, I never used moisturizer. I hate the heavy, greasy, sticky feel. This stuff is like a gel soufflé. I love the way it makes my skin feel. I never forget to put it on. This helps my skin look much better

Very light moisturizer. Also, wears well under makeup. Unfortunately I broke out by the end of the day.
