    I am so happy that this lotion is back! I used the Skin Balancing Gel in place of this product and thought it was okay but I didn't reorder and was looking for another lotion to love from a different brand. I was still searching until today. My search for the perfect lotion is over, whoop, whoop! Thank you for bringing this amazing product back.

    Quite frankly, the best moisturizer I've tried

      TLDR: Quality product that hydrates and can minimize breakouts from clogging

      Before this, I was using just drug store moisturizer (Cetaphil). I found it was the only cream that wouldn't cause breakouts for me, whereas expensive creams from Estee Lauder, or Elizabeth Arden would. Even though Cetaphil didn't break me out with big red breakouts, I found my skin was always clogged up, with small bumps. I didn't realize it was because of the cream at the time.

      Enter this product. I decided to give it a try, and have been using it for 3 months now. I noticed a few immediate and amazing things
      1) No irritation, my skin is horribly sensitive, combination, and acne-prone...this did not cause itching, or breakouts
      2) My skin improved, the inflammation and clogging I would experience before left...I didn't realize it was the other cream that was the culprit!
      3) The matte finish leaves a very nice smooth texture that is great for applying makeup
      4) Oil is managed well, other creams would make my T Zone look like a mirror, this product does a great job keeping oil normalized

      I live in Canada and right now it is very cold and dry, so I find this moisturizer is better suited for warmer temperatures. I love how reliable this product is for me, and am weary to use a different moisturizer in the winter time, so I just mix a few drops of Estee lauder serum with this moisturizer and it is perfect :).

      Great lotion, super light, feels great on my skin. Not the best smell, but goes away quickly. 3 stars because of the packeging. I used before gel in the same tube and it was fine. But this product is VERY liquidy and I always over apply and if you open upside down it pours out :( and makes not worth the money. I would definitely buy again if it would be in a pump form.

      The best for mixed/compination skins

      • Full of antioxidants

      • Non-Greasy
      • Smells Great

      Cons

      • Not enough for super dry skins

      • Mixed skin/compination skin

      If you have compination skin, oily Tzone and normal to dry cheecks and under eyes, then this is your go to cream... it is light to be used under makeup, or as all arownd the eyes cream, you will feel well pampered.

      Great lightweight moisturizer...just not for me. I wanted a lightweight daily moisturizer to use on my combination/dry skin. It worked well in moisturizing my dry areas without making my oily areas overly greasy looking. Drawback is it broke my face out. I really wanted to add this to my collection but I guess its back to the drawing board for me.

      Ok yes, the smell is a little offputting. Honestly though, I barely even notice it anymore, it fades quickly, and it is better than added fragrances that will irritate my skin! Because that is the most important point: my skin loves this moisturizer! If you have dry skin this probably won't provide enough moisture, I have combo skin and this is perfect on my t-zone but left my cheeks on the dry side. I just added a toner and a serum and now all is good. My skin is highly acne prone along with being sensitive but the combo of this and the pore normalizing cleanser has improved my skin tremendously.

        This is yet another example of Paula's Choice outstanding customer service. The staff really listen to what customers have to say and case in point: they brought Hydralight moisturizer back. I used this for years and it was absolutely perfect for my combination, sensitive, acne-prone skin.

        Will be ordering this ASAP. I have been a loyal Paula's Choice customer for years and will be for years to come. Products are top notch and so is customer service. Fair prices too. What more can one ask for?

          THANK YOU for bringing back this product!!! It is simply amazing for oily and combination skin. Super lightweight and drys to a powdery touch. It's deceptively moisturizing- I've noticed when I don't use this, my face starts to peel (from Retinol), but with it, I'm good to go! Happy Customer!! :)
