    Paula's choice has been the best for my skin in general, but I've never have experienced a moisturizer like this! When I saw this redness relief line I thought "Eh maybe" because my skin is very sensitive and gets red super easily but this truly calms my skin down and really evens out the skin tone. Many people have been commenting on my skin ever since I started using Paula's and it feels great!

      I use Differin for acne and while the Skin Balancing moisturizer burns and makes my skin flaky, this does not. The texture is so much better as well; great slip and doesn't feel like you're putting a thick primer on your face. Absorbs really well and makes your skin super smooth and soft!

        I honestly love this moisturizer. I actually bought this for my husband. After reading the reviews I ordered this for him- and Hyralight for myself because of all the negative reviews for this lotion. I wasn't a fan of Hydralight at all. It stinks and rolls off my skin when I rub it in. I ended up misplacing it and started using the CALM one. I love the texture. I love the smell- or lack of smell. And I love how smoothly it rubs in. It doesn't irritate my skin at all.

          I have seriously acne-prone skin, to the point that I thought I would never be able to use an evening moisturizer- despite undergoing a course of Accutane and currently still on prescription topical retinoids. This product gives soothing, light hydration (for my combo skin, sometimes I boost the moisture levels by adding a non-comedogenic oil) and most importantly DOES NOT BREAK ME OUT. This isn't Paula's strongest anti-aging moisturizer- but it is my favorite because of the consistently fantastic performance. The pretty packaging of the Calm line doesn't hurt either!!

            This is right up there with my beloved moisture gel. Similar pros on both, this just has a little more soothing for when my face is a tad drier or irritated.

                  This moisturizer is a weird almost ointment like consistency and didn't do a thing for redness or any other skincare concern. It leaves your skin with an almost tacky feeling. Very disappointed.

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  I paid for overnight shipping because of the great reviews for this and other products for a special event. HUGE waste of money, especially since now I have to pay more on top of that $25 to ship back products that are pretty awful! Not good customer service and not good policy's!

                      • Sensitive Skin

                      A couple years ago, when I first heard about PC, I sampled the Hydralight line, including the evening moisturizer. I recall it being basic, but quite decent for it's purpose. I wasn't blown away, but I liked it and totally understood why people with sensitive skin would enjoy it. Then a few months ago I sampled the Calm oily/combo line. I couldn't believe how fantastic this moisturizer was! The other components are really nice too (I quite like the serum), but this moisturizer is the standout performer of them all! It's really outstanding. A huge improvement, in my opinion, from Hydralight. My skin is fussy. I have mild to moderate acne, very irritated and hormonal (like yours truly). No cysts, but inflammation, white heads, etc. I have mild hyperpigmentation from old acne, as well as true blackheads and sebaceous filaments. My skin is kinda sometimes oily, but with rude little flaky dry patches around my nose and cheeks. The sides/temples of my face are incredibly irritable and are easily burned by skincare products. So to summarize, my skin a joyous pleasure to care for (intense sarcasm). PC has been a godsend. Not everything works for me, but non of it has hurt me, and some of it is truly Holy Grail level amazing. This moisturizer is the latter. It deserves more stars than it currently has. All the bitter Hydralight peeps came here to vent their (understandable) frustrations in hopes of getting their Holy Grail back, and in so doing have done this BEAUTIFUL product a disservice. Get samples, try it, ignore the ranty, it's-not-Hydralight reviews. You may love it as much as I do.

                        Comments about CALM Moisturizer for Normal to Oily Skin - 2 oz:

                        Unlike most of these reviews, I actually like this better than the Hydralight SPF. I used to use hydralight a lot, even when it was the hand cream with spf - it was gentle, mineral (so doesn't bother my eyes), not greasy, and didn't break me out.
                        This Calm SPF is a step up in my opinion. I find it much silkier and easier to spread, and it is slightly more moisturizing. My combination skin really likes it. It also just looks beautiful -- evens out the skin tone, reduces redness, and is not greasy. It even mattifies a bit. I just stocked up and plan to use this all summer. Maybe my skin isn't as oily as the others, so they prefer the less emollient feel of the Hydralight, but I choose this one.
