    Great lightweight moisturizer, though can be almost too lightweight if your skin is dry. Good for oily skin.

      Comments about Paula's Choice Skincare SKIN BALANCING Moisture Gel - 2 oz:

      My skin really does not like the way this moisturizer feels. Along with that, I feel like it gives my face a very slick look. I plan on returning soon, but I could see how some people may like the gel. If you do not mind a lot of silicone on your face, then you will enjoy this. I, however, do not enjoy the silicone-y feel that the gel has.

      As always, PC comes through with great customer service, no surprise there.

        This product is irreplaceable. I've been using it for years and always coming back to it after trying new products. I love the texture, for me, it's a moisturiser and a primer in one. I love mixing other products like color correcting/bronzing drops and liquid highlighters to it, it eliminates the need of foundation or bb dream for me. It dries very fast which is a big plus for my am routine.

            Terrible for am! Ball up despite on all my attempts: i tried to use different combinations of face products and even only toner under this cream, different application techniques.. nothing changed. Foundation looks awfully! Have to use this cream before sleep. Very dissapointen with the product.

              This is hands down the HG moisturizer. I started trying all popular brands on the market, even those in organic stores and finally settle down to this one.
              Pros: silky, not greasy, not drying, good for morning and night, didn't break me out after using one entire tube. My combination and sensitive skin finally feel soothed after about a week diligent use, completely compatible with C15 booster
              Cons: nothing.... I guess I will add Hyaluronic booster into it at nighttime during the super drying upper east coast winter

              After fixing to this product. My whole skincare routine becomes Paula's Choice. No complain, love everything I am using

                This moisturizer burns my skin like crazy, even those areas that were never sensitive before. On the up side, it does not make my skin oily, but it is not very moisturizing either.

                  Just ordered a few samples from PC for the first time including samples of this, and oh my goodness I am glad I did! I have oily/relatively sensitive skin. I have been using face lotions meant for sensitive skin for a long time, which although never clogged my pores, they were always a bit too heavy for me, very "basic," and would leave me looking shiny (which I needed no help with!). I was afraid to try something else though, especially after having done multiple rounds of Accutane throughout my life, I did not want to do anything to jeopardize my now manageable skin. But this moisturizer is ahh-mazzz-ing. Immediately reminded me of a silicone makeup primer, but without any greasiness. I looked in the mirror a few minutes after application and I had zero shine, skin looked amazingly even in color and texture. Very impressed! Glad I found a product to transition from acne-focused skin care to start slowing addressing other concerns as I approach my 30's (I'm 26). If you are on the fence about trying this product, do yourself a favor and order a sample!

                      I have had oily skin all of my life and for this reason I have had deep cleansing facials monthly since the age of 25. I do not require intense moisturizing during the winter since my natural oils add sufficient protection. I rather like the Skin Bal Moist. Gel during the winter months because it acts as a light barrier/primer prior to applying foundation. I don't need additional moisture protection nor am I concerned by the lack of sun protection since the foundation I use has SPF protection. This is an excellent product and effective for those with oily complexions rather than dry. During the summer months I use the Skin Bal Ultra Sheer Daily Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 30. Love the Skin Balancing Line.

                        I like this moisturizer . It kinda goes on like a primer. It works for my skin but iff you have a drier skin, it won't be enough moisture. I will define telly keep buying it. I use it with my serum all year round . I submitted a review before but now I used it'd or 2 weeks instead off a few days. I like it. Plus it's anti wrinkle and no fragrance

                          This moisturizer. Absorbs fast and is. Good for oily or shiny skin. I do not find that it provides much moisture so I think this will work better for me in the summer. It is also suitable as a primer.
