Ratings & Reviews

Love it, works great with my sensitive, oily skin


I use this at night, after using the BHA liquid, and follow it with a moisturizer. Its very light, absorbs quickly, very soothing. When my skin is irritated, this calms it down. If I'm using harsh products or overusing something, this increases tolerance. My problem is, Why isn't this incorporated into the calm moisturizers? The Calm moisturizer for oily skin needs a boost, and the ingredients in this serum ARE that boost. It should be one product. And I don't see WHY this new and improved moisturizer can't be $29-$35. It's a fair price. Paula's Choice in my mind is a brand with products that work at fair prices, which is why I think those two products should be combined, and that price range kept. If not the prices should be reduced. Just my two cents.

Purchasing the full size now


I have super sensitive skin that often gets irritated from my prescription retin-A which triggers these tiny bumps and redness. I used a sample of this serum last night after noticing that my face was especially irritated and when I woke up this morning the redness was gone and my skin looks amazing. Ordering the full size now!!

This formula is genius! Pls don't ever discontinue!


I love that this isn't loaded with dimethicone. So much better than DE gel moisturizer, imo.




No dramatic transformation, but does what it's supposed to


This is not a high-powered serum that is going to give you dramatic changes to your skin. It works slowly and subtly. However, as someone who already uses multiple prescription-strength products for acne, this has done wonders for keeping my skin soothed and moisturized. It is also very gentle.

Wonderful product for sensitive skin


Beautiful product feels lovely and is perfect for extra sensitive skin. I also have oily skin so love the lightweight texture.

Shut up and take my money.


Paula's best daily serum for oily/combo, red, fussy skin. Beautiful formula! You need to use up a bottle+ to see nice results. Even if you think you don't see a difference, once you stop using it for a little while you'll very likely notice an unpleasant change and miss it. Because it works so gradually and depends on consistency, it's easy to not notice the change it produces. This is a slow and steady winner, not an overnight wonder potion. After a week of daily use I saw reduced redness. Things got softer, calmer, brighter and better from there. After a whole bottle I ran out, and holy bananas, my skin was not amused. I only use this once per day, two quick pumps, after toner and before my sunscreen. I love it! I have rude, dry here, oily there skin, with mild-to-almost-moderate acne, redness, mild hyperpigmentation, blackheads, sebaceous filaments, and patchy sensitivity. I really don't like the Skin Balancing serum, and the Resist oily/combo serum is a touch too heavy for me (although a really nice product). This serum is perfect for my skin. It does not break me out and is extremely calming to whatever crazy my skin is showing at the time of application. Love it, love it, love it!

A skin saver


This saved me recently when I had a reaction to a new product that left it very dry, rough, and sensitized. This didn't help with the roughness, but it got my skin back to being able to use my usual AHA and BHA without discomfort. The lightweight texture doesn't seem to add any moisture on it's own, but the base of water, glycerine, hyaluronic acid does hydrate very will. I will definitely repurchase this if I have another bad reaction, or to use in conjunction with a particularly strong retinol or other active ingredient.

Great after dermaplaning!


I get dermaplaned professionally every 4 weeks but I was breaking out afterwards with the product my esthetician was using afterwards. I asked her to skip her product and use this and the results are incredible. She puts it on after and when I get home I do one more layer. Any redness is gone within hours instead of days (I'm very sensitive) and my skin just glows. I like to mix just a drop with my PC Calm Redness Relief moisturizer at night after cleansing (PC Moisture Boost) and Toning (Resist Light toner). A half hour later I do my Retin A Micro. During the day I use the Calm Redness Relief with SPF during the day. I am almost 50 and am enjoying best skin of my life. Thank you, Paula!

Crisis Averted


I got this to mix with the Retinol Booster, but Ive been dealing with the aftermath of putting niacinamide on my face (whyyyyy can't my skin like it?! ugh) and was holding off on playing with the retinol. Meanwhile, in an attempt to clear up the aforementioned breakout, i went a bit overboard on acids and ended up shedding skin like a reptile, while still enjoying several painfully enflamed spots. Desperate for help, I cracked open the Calm serum and man, what a difference. Will it work miracles? Doubtful. But I won't be without it in future, either. It could definitely play better under makeup/ heavier moisturizers. As others have said, it smells a bit. But it's worth it to calm and smooth an angry face.




I am repurchasing - really enjoy this product


i love that it is lightweight, hydrating and PLUMPING! super nice product to use. absorbs nicely into skin and it works well with many different moisturizers. LOVE!
