Such a nice gel cleanser and an improvement on Hydralight

5

I had bought a bottle of Hydralight and used it up completely. I then bought a second bottle of the Calm as I had purchased this in the past. Calm cleanser is so nice. It is a lightweight, jelly type cleanser that does clean gently but doesn't have the "thicker, syrupy" texture of Hydralight. It also has plant extracts, gentle non sulfate detergents and is fragrance free. It is basically an updated version of a gel cleanser like Hydralight. Now, Hydralight is fine as a cleanser. I just think PC used the latest research and came out with an even better cleanser. I am using this as my nighttime cleanser after using the Perfect Cleansing Oil. My skin feels soft, clean and without any redness or dryness. Since I am not as oily as I used to be, I may try the gel instead of the Skin Balancing Cleanser. Both are great, but pay attention to your skin type!!

I'm Amazed! Redness is Gone

5

I am so grateful to have found this line! I have struggled with mild acne and oily skin my whole life. I'm also very cautious of trying new products because most cleansers make me break out. Recently, I started having problems with redness and tiny pimples. My doctor told me it was rosacea, and it came and went for weeks, but never really went away. It was horrible! Redness, bumps, inflamed skin. One day it was so bad, I canceled a meeting. I was using 2 other products from Paula's Choice (Resist tinted moisturizer and a dark spot corrector) and really liked them so I decided to jump in and use this line completely. I am blown away by how fantastic my skin looks. I am using this cleanser with the 2% BHA Skin Perfecting lotion, then the Calm Repair serum and moisturizer. During the day, I use the Resist that is the tinted moisturizer with SPF and at night I use the Calm moisturizer. I love everything and I'm so glad I turned to these products for help. The redness and bumps are gone.

LOVE this cleanser!

I use the entire Calm line morning and night. It has saved my skin (and sinuses). I have sensitive and breakout prone skin that has recently also become oily, and a sensitivity to perfumes/chemicals. Most products are either too harsh and severely dry out my skin, or are too perfumey and make me sick. This is the best of both worlds; an unscented cleanser that has finally balanced out my problematic skin. I have also tried the Hydrolite cleanser, but found it not nearly as effective at removing makeup. Please don't ever discontinue this cleanser!!

Very nice cleanser

I wanted to compare this to the Hydralight and have to say that it is excellent. The ingredients are state of the art, it is lighter and silkier feeling than the Hydralight. I personally use it as a morning cleanser and the Skin Balancing at night. There is no irritation or stinging with this cleanser, and it does not leave the skin feeling dry at all.

I love This

5

I use this am and pm. I used to have to use two different cleansers-one to get my makeup off and one to be gentle in the am. This one does both. I do not break out with my acne prone skin and my rosacea is not bothered either. I am 59. Do not get rid of this product!

Best Cleanser I've Used

5

I've tried a lot of cleansers, and this is by far my favorite one. I love the slip to this product. A little goes a long way, as it easily spreads throughout my whole face, down to my neck and chest. I love that it has no irritating ingredients, since I have oily/sensitive skin with slight redness. Also love the fact that it's a vegan product. I wet my face in the shower with warm water, rub this cleanser all over, then remove with a damp wash cloth. Only thing is the cheap looking packaging, it's so ugly. But the product itself is perfect. I'm back here to order my second bottle. It lasts a while.

Best cleanser I have ever used!

5

This cleanser has made a huge difference in my skin! One day I used bareminerals powder and my face got really itchy, red, and hot to the touch. I came home and washed my face asap. I was looking in the mirror while I swirled this around my face and I actually saw the redness fade away right before my eyes! Before this cleanser I was using Cerave hydrating cleanser. I ordered samples of this cleanser to try before I bought it. When I ran out of the samples and went back to the cerave my face became red and irritated. Which is so weird!

Im very impress by this cleanser. I love the gel like texture, yet it foams nicely. Its a very gentle cleanser, and Im very happy I made the purchased. It does not irritate or strip my skin. I would recommend this product to anybody looking to restore texture and and balace to their skin.

This stuff is great!

I really enjoy this gentle cleanser. My skin isn't super sensitive but I get redness around my nose and eyes. I've tried several cleanser but always come back to this one because it never irritates my skin and it definitely reduces my redness. The only thing I don't like about this cleanser is that it doesn't remove my foundation. This is more like a lotion texture that doesn't foam or become soapy which is fine but to get my mineral makeup off I get my face wet and rub this on then wipe it off to get my makeup off. I then put it on again and actually wash my face (sometimes use a clarisonic). I don't like makeup remover because it irritates my eye area. Overall I do love this cleanser.

Very good cleanser!

I never had such a good cleanser. Most products for rosacea are for dry and sensitive skin but mine is oily and sensitive. Never found a cleanser that is so gentle and soothing but at the same time it cleans my oily skin. Little product goes a long way. If I use a regular cleanser my skin gets even more red but with this cleanser it won't. I wouldn't say that it really reduces my redness but it also doesn't get worse like normally.
