Unfortunately, not suited for all oily/acne-prone skin.
Comments about SKIN BALANCING Moisture Gel - 2 oz:
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
About Me Beauty Conscious
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!!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
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.

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.

Perfect lightweight formula for my combination skin - I hate anything that feels thick or greasy on my face, and this goes on like a dream with a pleasant gel texture.

Gel moisturizers work
Received a sample of this product. I really do like it! It may feel slick when first applied but it dries down quickly. My skin feel so soft and smooth. My only concern if this will be effective enough for the harsh winter, I feel like this product might be too light. Otherwise, I would buy again.
Perfect for my skin
from Saint Louis MO
I use this moisturizer at night as well as in the daytime, under makeup. It doesn't clog my pores and is exactly what I need for my combination skin. Since there is no sunscreen it is ideal for nighttime. I will continue to buy this over and over! Beautifully formulated.
Perfect Everyday Moisturizer
from Atlanta, GA
I'm fairly new to the world of skincare and was directed to this product by a friend after venting about the annoyance of sweating off the heavy/greasy daily moisturizer I previously used.This stuff is a godsend. After years of using heavier pore-clogging lotions on my face, my only complaint is I that didn't find this stuff sooner. My skin almost sighs with relief when I put it on. Ive even bought a couple for friends. Ive never had an issue with breakouts, I don't sweat it off the second I walk outside, and my skin has never felt better. Thanks PC -- hope this one stays on the shelf for many years to come.
