Ratings & Reviews



I tried this on a whim, not expecting great results. Boy, was I wrong to think that!!! This is gentle and nourishing and really helps with hydration. I live in Las Vegas and the heat and dryness can really do a number on your skin. I use this after cleansing and toning. You can feel it sink in and your skin is just soft and ready for moisturizer and sunscreen. I have less flakiness due to dryness since I started using this, so I am impressed. This is one of my go-to products and I have on auto-renew. Using twice a day, the bottle will last a month or so. If you use once a day, the bottle will last longer. I have another serum I use at night, but I think this works better so I am phasing that serum out and plan to use this one as my serum. I always wear this in the morning under my moisturizer and primer and makeup as it hydrates so well. This is a good value and an effective product. Thanks, Paula!

Got rid of super flaky and dry skin patch


I was having issues with a dry and very flaky spot along the side of my nose. I started a better skin care routine using Paula's Choice products for the most part. It is likely the whole combination led to getting rid of the flaky dry spot within one week. This serum was part of my nighttime routine. After cleansing, I used RESIST Advanced Replenishing toner. I exfoliate in the morning, so I go straight to using the Omega+ Complex serum. Then I follow up with the Anti-Aging Clear Skin Hydrator. This coupled with a morning routine of cleansing, 2% BHA gel, Hyaluronic Acid Booster, and moisturizer with sunscreen seems to have done the trick in removing the dry patch. Definitely going to keep at this routine to keep the dry patches at bay. It's tricky, because my cheeks and chin and sometimes my forehead tend to get some acne (even at 47), so I have to keep the superhydrating moisturizer off those areas. I finish up those areas with the lightweight RESIST Youth-Extending Daily Hydrating Fluid SPF 50.




Love it, need a bigger size please


I use this in the morning as a moisturizer under my sunscreen and at night I mix serums into it. The texture is wonderful, it absorbs completely and feels great on. My only beef if that two pumps twice a day will barely last a month. I hate wasting containers and I'd love a larger, possibly less expensive option. Pretty please? ;)




Soothed Allergic Reaction from Another Product


I love this product, especially during the cooler months. Also, I had an allergic reaction from a newly purchased, non Paula's Choice sunscreen and this lotion soothed and calmed my inflamed, red skin. There was an incredible difference in 24hrs.



Will Not Be Without This


I love many of Paula's products, but this is by far my favorite. It has drastically improved my skin. I order each new bottle early, to ensure I don't go a single day without it. I've read that some folks have had problems with the packaging, but that hasn't been a problem for me. The bottles have all worked well for me, and dispense just the right amount for one application. I love this magical potion!




HG product for me!


I'm genuinely having a difficult time understanding some of the bad reviews on this product. I will never go without it again! It makes my skin so soft and bouncy, quickly sooths any redness or irritation I have, and I even love that it's fragrance free. I like the smell of it, and the texture, and using it 2 pumps every morning and night, it takes me more than a month to run out! I love everything about it!

This Stuff is Amazing


I've used so many Paula products and this is by far my favourite!!! No reactions from my sensitive skin, helps with blemishes and leaves you with glowing skin. I use it as a light moisturizer.

Just ordered my 2nd Bottle!


Love having this in my daily routine. Going to be 50 in 2 months and no one ever guesses my age. Been using PC for 20 years straight now!




Skin adores but not wallet!


Really really love this product but agree with others it has to come in a larger size!!! I only order when on sale like now since it's 25% off, run out long before a sale comes along and not able to use it everyday because of small amount. PLEASE consider a larger bottle for this price!




Paula's choice Omega+ serum


Considering the ingredient list, I was hesitant to try this product at first, at last I did and I'm so happy for my decision, it hydrates but not oily or greasy in anyway. I felt like my skin drinks it very well and became supple after use.. one of the best moisturizing serum. Please make bigger size, something like 2-3 oz. would be great.
