Nice moisturizer


This moisturizer makes your skin feel very soft and hydrated. I use it every day!

Great for aging, acne-prone skin


I've been a devout PC consumer for nearly 15 years and can attest to the claims about this product. I'm nearing my mid-40s and still have to combat the pesky breakouts that primarily appear on my chin. Though I've resigned myself to the fact that my acne is mostly attributed to genetics (my mother broke out well into her 50s), I haven't despaired since using this moisturizer. I approach use of any product on my face with caution as my acne-prone skin does not hesitate to respond to the effects of new products. I am pleased to say that this moisturizer has not caused my skin to experience any dermatitis or newer types of acne breakouts than that which I'm genetically predisposed to monthly. In other words, if I break out on my chin, I am assured that it's simply a result of my monthly cycle and not because of this moisturizer. Though this review doesn't claim this product to be a panacea, it is my honest opinion that I feel this moisturizer helps to maintain the suppleness of my skin while combating fine lines and that it doesn't contribute to more comedones. I have been using this moisturizer for nearly 4 years now.

Love this for my aging, acne-prone skin


My combination skin is getting dryer as I age (I'm 52). My chin is especially troublesome -- still a bit oily and prone to breakouts, but also gets dry and flaky especially right at the corners of my mouth. I LOVE this moisturizer for this area! It never makes me break out -- in fact I think it actually lessens the breakouts because it soothes and reduces the flakiness. I highly recommend this moisturizer.

SO thankful this hasn't changed!


This moisturizer is perfect for my oily, acne-prone skin and absolutely is the only one I'll use day or night (for AM, I just wear SPF over it). It's lightweight with the perfect texture and has the added benefit of helping with red marks which have been a major issue for me for years. I panicked when some of the recent reviews here complained that the product had changed because I can't live without this moisturizer. I haven't used up my current bottle yet but immediately ordered a new one in order to check all the ingredients and it is thankfully the same product!




Small changes but nothing major ..r/o


PC added Lactobacillus and Coconut Fruit extract. Down at the bottom of the list, they added sodium chloride and potassium thiocyanate. That's it. No other emollients, silicones or other ingredients were changed.






Love, love, love the smooth texture!! It feels like a pore primer and goes on great with a pore primer making makeup so easy to smooth over my skin. Also glad it's sunscrre free since sunscreens make my face shine so I use CoTZ silky soft sheer matte finish sunscreen with it during the summer months. All these go together so nicely and I don't look like an oil slick!!! I love my face again!!!

love this lotion


I have extremely sensitive, acne-prone, combination skin and this moisturizer is perfect for me. I've been using this product for a few years now and it helps to curb my break outs that occur once a month. I'd definitely recommend trying this product.

I can't tell you how many dollars I've wasted on trying to find the best moisterizer. I finally found it. This stuff makes my skin feel AMAZING. Plump and the softest it's ever felt. I have the best skin of my life after starting using PC products. I have combination skin prone to acne. I use the Resist cleanser for combination skin, followed by the corresponding Resist toner, then Clear 2% BHA salicylic acid exfolient, then Clear regular strength benzoyl peroxide treatment, Resist eye cream, then lastly this moisterizer. My skin has never looked/felt this good. My only complaint about this product is the packaging! Which isn't that big of a deal to me anyway. Amazing stuff.

I have been loving this moisturizer nightly for approximately 4 years. I've occasionally tried other brands, just to insure I'm not missing any "revolutionary new products", but always quickly return to my Paulas Choice skin care regime. As the saying goes...don't try to fix what ain't broke. I have never experienced any problem with the dispenser, other than not knowing when I will run out. I now order a new bottle every three months or so, that way there is always a new one waiting for me.




Smooth and effective, not greasy


I use this moisturizer every night and my skin has been noticeably smoother and healthier. It is not heavy or greasy yet feels like it fully and deeply hydrates my skin. It takes care of the flaky spots I sometimes have without feeling like it clogs my pores.
