Ratings & Reviews

Great for dry, aging skin!


I am 45 with dry skin and I am very serious about my skin care regimen. I have been using this incredible PC line exclusively for 3 yrs other than one other item. I love that this PM moisturizer is fragrance free, light weight and hydrating, and it's great for my face, entire eye area, neck, and decollate. (I like it much better than the Resist Barrier Repair since this one is more hydrating). During winter months I sometimes have to add some Skin Recovery moisturizer as well; but in the warm months this is perfect on it's own. I especially love the pump packaging which is sanitary and keeps the ingredients stable. As per reviews some do not like this packaging since they apparently can't gauge how much is left in the bottle, but I always stock up, and moreover I can usually tell when it is time to replace.

Product good, package bad


I was using this at nights as part of my skin routine. I liked how it made my skin look and feel. The lack of giving it a 5 star was that it doesn't appear you receive much product or the packaging doesn't allow for all of the product to come out. I was using this in combination with a moisturizer, for daytime, I purchased well over a month prior ago and as of to date, still have plenty of product left. I was very surprised when one evening there simply wasn't anything coming out and the dispenser seemed to be done with dispensing product. I would love for this to be in a tube so you knew how much product you were actually getting and how much was left.




I would and have purchased repeatedly.


Packaging, cannot tell how much is left in container, I find this a true negative!!




Love this product, don't like the bottle


I've been using this now about a year and I think my skin at least has not shown any new signs of aging, and may even be a bit improved. I use it nightly after my cleanser and toner. BUT I really dislike the bottle for two reasons: first, because it's opaque, you can't see when you're getting to the end of the product and, second, it doesn't start to putter out of the pump to warn you that you're getting to the end, but rather stops abruptly in the middle of the last pump. Last night, I was only able to apply to half of my face because I had no idea that I was at the end of the bottle. The heft of the bottle itself also doesn't help because it's substantial, so you can't really feel that it's lighter as you use such a small amount each application. I really wish that Paula's would just put this in a regular bottle or something. The packaging is overkill and not environmentally friendly anyway.



Caused bad breakouts


When it comes to my skin, I never have reactions so I was unpleasantly surprised by this cream. After two weeks and making sure nothing else in my regimen changed, I had to abandon use. I have broken out so bad and now am working on repair and correction. I used this in conjunction with the hyaluronic serum which does not last long so I can't tell if it did anything but I finished it as it did not cause any issues. Clearly there are many who had positive results which is why I chose this product after reviewing ingredients; however, it was just not right for me so I cannot recommend it.

I used this no more than 3 times and my skin is completely damaged. It would burn and tingle when I used this and now I have scars from the rash it gave me. I'm 24 years old and my skin looks twice my age now. I'm scared I won't be able to repair my skin.




Wow.. visible results


I'm 25 years old and even I notice my skin looks incredible firm, plump, smooth, and just flawless.. my skin feels so supple using this cream. This is coming from someone who has no fine lines or signs of aging. I can only imagine the worlds difference it could make for women who are showing visible signs of aging and loss of firmness. Amazing product.

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.




Over 2 years using this moisturizer


I glanced at my orders today and was surprised to see I have been ordering this for over 2 years already - it's really so awesome. I know they call it a night cream but I use it whenever and it's perfect. I don't usually wear any makeup though and I probably wouldn't wear it directly under a foundation or something like that, but if you go bare this moisturizer really gives you that dewy look, I love it. Looking at my orders I can see that I average one of these every 6-8 months and that's with everyday use- that's a great value if you ask me!


APO- everywhere


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!
