Ratings & Reviews

Wonderful serum


I have combo/oily skin that becomes normal/dry in the winter. This serum works well to hydrate and soothe. I use it as my moisturizer when my skin starts showing signs of a compromised barrier. Additionally, this serum is a great base for my tretinoin and helps address irritation.






I love how this feels on my skin! My skin feels and looks much better using this serum. I don't do many reviews, so yes, super product!! I don't plan to run out, already have extras on hand! Like many others have mentioned, I would like to see this in a larger size......PLEASE! Highly recommend. Used PC from day one when Paula introduced her skin care products, I ordered them. Have not stopped ordering, for PC is all I use. I get mega compliments on my skin constantly. People are shocked when I tell them my age, for I look 10 years younger.

perfect as a moisturizer for hot weather


This is amazing. I used to have dry skin but I have recently moved to Brazil and normal moisturizers were too heavy for the hot humid weather here but just a normal hyaluronic serum was not enough. I use this as a moisturizer after C15 and Calm serum and under the new Defense sunscreen and my skin is hydrated but not greasy all day long. Very happy with how my skin looks and feels now.

Love ALL of Paula's choice products!!


This product is one of the many Paula's choice skincare items I have. it's absolutely amazing brighten your skin makes it feel soft and makes your makeup go on beautifully. Honestly I probably use about eight or nine different Paula's choice products and I love every single one of them. I will never stop using these products. I've seen more difference in my skin uses products than I've ever seen in any of the products I've ever used. they're amazing I love them.... keep up the good work!!!

So good I wrote a review! HA


I use a lot of Paula's Choice products and they're all wonderful (and well-priced), I got this serum as a gift with one of my orders and when I first started using it, I wasn't super excited about it. Generally, I feel like serums are overrated and I didn't want to add another step to my skincare. Plus, I already liked how my skin looked with all my other PC products. I used it because it was free (why not, right?) and O...M...G...after a couple of weeks I am blown away. My skin is dewy and glowing. I get compliments on my skin almost every day. I'm 38 and now I have the 25-year-old skin. Plus, the consistency is great and the pump gives the perfect amount. It is easily one of my top 5 PC products if not my favorite. I guess I'm adding another product to my auto-replenishment! (And if anyone is interested in what else I use... Resist Cleanser, Skin Recovery Toner, BHA Liquid, Retinol Booster, THIS, and Resist Moisturizer or Sunscreen. And sometimes a dab of coconut oil if I'm a little extra dry from the winter weather or if I get some retinol irritation).

I adore this product!


I use this in the morning after the Resist oily skin cleanser, toner, Resist 2% BHA and the Peptide Booster. It feels sooo good when I put it a nourishing feeling, the best I can explain it. I have aging but oily skin and this provides the perfect amount of moisture. It's not greasy, your skin just feels soft and bouncy. It also takes away any dry spots I may have from Retin-A use. I have been using Paula's Choice products for years and it shows!

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.
