Ratings & Reviews

Is nice but not intensive .


It is more of a light moisturizer , very nice and soft on the skin , absorb beautifully and is perfect for daily use , or under make up . I didn't notice any skin improvement, but is nice for daily use.



Noticeable difference- love it!


Amazing results with this product! I use this product along with the Resist Cleanser and Daily Soothing Treatment, and my skin has never looked or felt so great! I am 61 years young, and my skin hardly has wrinkles (other than smile lines!), but my skin was uneven and a bit blotchy looking. I am using much less makeup, am not self-conscious about my skin, and I will absolutely continue to use this moisturizer in conjunction with the other products. Also, the moisturizer is not greasy and it does not sit on top of your skin. It moisturizes and feels great. You can also use this around your eyes, and it works wonders for dry skin around the eyes! I won't go without this one!

Great Night Moisturizer


I use it every single night. I was looking for a moisturizer i could use during the night, and I needed one that would be heavy so that my face would me well moisturized throughout the entire night and this does that job perfectly. I apply one pump of it on my face and stays pretty heavy. Great, I love it.




Best Night time Hand cream!


I searcedh the site for a product for "peptides" and this product came up. And I thought I would try this for my hands at night before bed. Now I won't even go to bed with out using this as a night time hand cream!!! I have tried many other "Hand Creams" but, wanted something that has an anti-aging benefit for my hands :)))

I wanted to love this


I have had great results with all of Paula's Choice products. However, after using this product for less than a week, I suffered a terrible break out. I never break out, and this is the only thing that was changed in my skincare routine. I guess this one isn't for me. Hopefully my skin will return to normal before the 4th!

Drying for sensitive/dry skin


I have very dry/sensitive skin and unfortunately this seemed to dry my skin out further! I would put it on and it felt nice at first but over 2 weeks of usage I started developing dry patches of skin on my face. I think this product was a little too irritating for my already sensitive skin.




Awesome night cream


I love this product in winter time when my skin is on the drier side! It's an extremely moisturizing product. I hesitate to call it heavy, because it does penetrate into your skin fully after a good hour, and it's meant to be very moisturizing. This won't work for someone with oiliness. Luckily, I'm pretty sure it says it's intended for dry skin. After I use this at night I wake up with plumply hydrated and smoothed skin texture. The retinol does make a noticeable difference in your skin texture when using this.






After about 4 months of using this moisturizer, I can really see a noticeable reduction in fine lines and wrinkles. I am quite surprised with how supple and smooth my skin is - this retinol product has totally exceeded my expectations. Thanks Paula's Choice!




Finally! Clear Skin


After 60+ years of cystic acne, and every treatment possible except for Accutane, I finally have clear combination skin! It took me decades to realize that "effective barrier function" was critical and that continually drying my skin to eliminate the oil was counter productive. I've used 1/2 pump of this product along with a full pump of PC's Clinical 1% Retinol both morning and night throughout the winter and my skin looks great.




Love It


I use this moisturizer as my last step in the evening. I love how moisturizing it is. I don't want to be without it!
