Game changer

After struggling for years with various moisturizers that were either too greasy, causing breakouts, or too watery, causing fine lines to look exaggerated, I finally found this gem! It's perfect! Lightweight and silky smooth, I noticed a complete difference in my skin within 24 hours and it just keeps getting better. Redness and dry patches are gone and my t zone is completely balanced and breakouts are kept at bay! Even my fine lines are diminishing! I use this with a Paula's Choice Retinol formula and cleanser. I couldn't be happier! Thank you so much for this product! I truly love it!

From a Dude with an oily T-Zone - It WORKS!

5

My my my.... this is probably the only face lotion/moisturizers from Paul's that ACTUALLY, DO NOT sting/burn my eyes, while keeping my oily T-Zone from looking like a greasy head. I got my very first bottle about a week and half ago and kept testing it out - humid days/nights, dry days/nights, leave it on for over 6 plus hours, apply alone with no toner/after shave lotion, and result for me - AMAZING. I ALSO have been adding the vitamin b booster, but did not like the feel of my skin - a bit tacky. This gel moisturizer glides on my face and neck, zero problem with my stubble, leave my manly skin smooth, calm and soft - gives my fave a dreamy glow. [Fair warning, I do use Retin-A gel and Paul's vitamin B booster.] Another wonder benefit of this face gel is that it does NOT burn/sting my eyes as many other face lotion does, after a two hours of application. Guys, give this face moisturizer a try and add a toner to it IF you have dry skin.

I love this moisturizer!

I use it at night only. Even with my combination skin, it feels good all over my face. Absorbs quickly and is effective. It's the only one that doesn't feel heavy or greasy on my face.

I love the gel form. Dry fast, not greasy. Reorder it with 6-month auto replenishment.

Great for oily skin...

I love this gel moisturizer along with the serum in this line. The texture is smooth and mattifying while still moisturizing. Soaks right in and doesn't leave a weird film like a lot of things do on my skin... Even other PC products. I use this after cleansing, toning (resist line), exfoliants (alternate AHA and BHA) and the serum from this line. Skin has never looked better!

The Best Product to Wear to Bed!

This goes on so smooth and dries nicely, but leaves you skin feeling baby-soft. I love the entire Skin Balancing line and even after I switched to the Resist line (I'm getting wrinkles), I still use this as my nighttime moisturizer. Works great at creating an even skin tone and feel and minimizes pores.

Not sure? Do yourself a favor and order a sample!

Just ordered a few samples from PC for the first time including samples of this, and oh my goodness I am glad I did! I have oily/relatively sensitive skin. I have been using face lotions meant for sensitive skin for a long time, which although never clogged my pores, they were always a bit too heavy for me, very "basic," and would leave me looking shiny (which I needed no help with!). I was afraid to try something else though, especially after having done multiple rounds of Accutane throughout my life, I did not want to do anything to jeopardize my now manageable skin. But this moisturizer is ahh-mazzz-ing. Immediately reminded me of a silicone makeup primer, but without any greasiness. I looked in the mirror a few minutes after application and I had zero shine, skin looked amazingly even in color and texture. Very impressed! Glad I found a product to transition from acne-focused skin care to start slowing addressing other concerns as I approach my 30's (I'm 26). If you are on the fence about trying this product, do yourself a favor and order a sample!

I have had oily skin all of my life and for this reason I have had deep cleansing facials monthly since the age of 25. I do not require intense moisturizing during the winter since my natural oils add sufficient protection. I rather like the Skin Bal Moist. Gel during the winter months because it acts as a light barrier/primer prior to applying foundation. I don't need additional moisture protection nor am I concerned by the lack of sun protection since the foundation I use has SPF protection. This is an excellent product and effective for those with oily complexions rather than dry. During the summer months I use the Skin Bal Ultra Sheer Daily Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 30. Love the Skin Balancing Line.
