Ratings & Reviews



My search for the perfect cleanser is over! This is THE ONE. This cleanser is luxurious, gentle, and efficient! I would describe my skin type as combination skin and acne prone (hormonal acne). My skin loves this stuff so much, I noticed a difference on day 2!

Product did EXACTLY What Was Advertised


I ordered the CALM Redness Relief Cleanser and CALM Redness Relief Toner in April 2018. I read the reviews about reactions to the Cleanser AFTER I had placed my order. But having had one experience several years ago with Paula's Choice excellent customer service, I decided to wait and see what happened when I received and used the product. I experienced the same burning reaction. I decided to use the CALM cleanser in the evening every few days, and in the morning I used the cleanser I had left over before trying the CALM cleanser. I experienced the burning sensation one more time. After the second time, I have not had the burning sensation and now use the Cleanser every day. The best part? The redness has almost completely disappeared, which I never had with any previous products, including products recommended by my dermatologist (prescription) and over the counter.

The right choice


This is the only cleanser that relieved my face from redness, itching and sensitivity. It's fragrance-free with a creamy texture that leaves my face soft and definitely, not irritated unlike other hypoallergenic soaps.

It works for my husband too!


I've found relief from rosacea with the Calm Redness Relief cleanser for about 3 years. Last month, I suggested to my husband that he try it. He's had issues for many years with red, scaly patches on his face. He's used expensive, prescription and OTC creams, but it was like playing whack-a-mole. Perhaps the Calm cleanser could help; it surely wouldn't hurt. Within two days, his skin was clear and he was his handsome self again! Paula just gained another customer, bless her heart.

Perfect cleanser


The only cleanser that doesn't cause my sensitive skin to break out. I've tried so many, really happy I've found this one.

This is the only cleanser I have ever used, aside from a cream or oil(which are too clog poring) that does not leave my skin feeling dry and tight. I use it with the calming toner and the combination is soothing and does reduce redness. I have mild rosacea, enlarged pores, and milia. It has definitely helped with these problems. I also use Resist exfoliant 2% bha for oily every other day to reduce clogged pores as well as a retinol serum and Resist moisturizer forr oily skin. I have tried a million cleansers and this is the best

Great cleanser for sensitive skin


I had been looking for a cleanser that would not irritate my skin but would still be effective in cleansing and I finally found the one! This cleanser is very light, unscented, creamy, and effectively removes makeup without stripping my skin of its natural oils. I wash my face twice a day and it has not irritated my skin at all! I will definitely be reordering it!




Best cleanser I've ever used for sensitive skin


This cleanser is so great. Lately my skin has decided to be very sensitive, so I've had to completely change the products I use. I'm glad I did, because I don't think I'll ever go back to a traditional foaming cleanser. This product sort of reminds me of philosophy purity. It's a very creamy formula with a very light lather, but barely any lather at all. However, it seems to remove all my makeup in the first wash. After I pay dry my face I can feel that my skin is clean but not stripped or compromised in any way, almost hydrated, which is important for people with sensitive and or dry skin. I'd honestly recommend this cleanser to any skin type, especially oily acne prone, as it is a very simple and gentle cleanser that will not over strip.




Love this stuff!


I started with the samples of this product line and saw results in 2 days! I've never used anything that worked this great this quickly. I ordered the full line the next week and am loving it more everyday. Worth every penny!

Love this gentle cleanser


I have very sensitive, acne prone and dry skin. I have tried the Resist anti aging and Resist Perfectly Balanced cleanser lines and just needed something in between. So I found this CALM line to be the perfect line for my skin. I wear make up everyday, but I don't rely on this to take away all my make up. I use make up remover on cotton pads and take off all make up first before using this cleanser to clean anything left behind. I love the texture, no scent, gentle and non drying formula. Love the whole CALM line for Normal to Dry skin! Thankyou for creating it.
