    Love this product. Not greasy or heavy. I use as my morning and night moisturizer. I always have issues with breakouts even in my 40's! I don't breakout with this! It's wonderful. Down side to this is the Price for 2oz is expensive. That is the only reason I did not give this a 5 star rating. Wish Paula's Choice offered a larger size!

    Best moisturizer I've used for oily skin

      I have naturally oily skin, and this is truly the most balancing moisturizer I've ever used. It keeps me shine-free longer than the PC Daily Mattifying Fluid, but still moisturizes enough to diminishes pores and fine lines. It does contain Niacinamide, which some people are sensitive to, but is great for most oily and non-sensitive skin types.

        A moisturizer that's drying

          I purchased this product after switching from the Hydralight line to the Skin Balancing line. Initially, I still had the Hydralight lotion leftover and continued using it with the Skin Balancing cleanser and toner. I bought this to replace the Hydralight lotion after I ran out, and I must say I am disappointed. I don't understand how a moisturizer can be so drying! After switching to this moisturizer I started getting dry flaky skin, and I have had to switch to using argan oil as a moisturizer to help add some moisture back into my skin.

            I rated this before but should have used it longer. I use this from may till mid October . It's good if you want a moisturizer that is extremely light and also has a bit of a primer like finish . I like that this is anti wrinkle as well.

              Great lightweight moisturizer, though can be almost too lightweight if your skin is dry. Good for oily skin.

                  Very disappointed by this product. It burns my skin very badly every time I am applying it, in the morning my skin is still red and irritated, so I stopped to use it. Definitely not suitable for sensitive skin. The other thing that I've noticed since the first time when I tried it is that it have a very weird texture when applying on skin, a cheesy texture...something wrong with this product((((

                    My skin really does not like the way this moisturizer feels. Along with that, I feel like it gives my face a very slick look. I plan on returning soon, but I could see how some people may like the gel. If you do not mind a lot of silicone on your face, then you will enjoy this. I, however, do not enjoy the silicone-y feel that the gel has.

                    I have been using this moisturizer day and night to combat oily dehydrated skin. It makes my skin feel soft and moisturized without clogging pores and giving me the dreaded glazed donut look.

                    My only complaint is that this moisturizer burns the two red, blotchy, sensitive areas on my upper cheeks. It only burns right after application for about 5 minutes, but it is indeed uncomfortable. I think it's best to avoid this product if you have sensitive skin.

                      This was my first Paula's choice product that convinced me to try more. My initial experience was a bit mixed because it worked REALLY well, but almost TOO well at reducing oil. I have combination skin that is really oily in the T-zone and suuuper dry along the jaw. I do not recommend using this as your only moisturizer or pairing it with other skin care that promises to reduce oil. It will be WAY too drying. Don't get me wrong, this product was immediately effective in reducing the oil on my face and even helped prolong the wear of my makeup (amazing) but it can be TOO dry for my dry areas. It caused a bit of irritation when I used it on its own (without any moisturizing serums). It also works beautifully at making the serums and exfoliates I use underneath it extra effective! I will use this product until it goes out, but will probably opt for a more moisturizing product for winter. Maybe I will repurchase this again in the summer months when my oil needs to be kept in check again.

                      Service and delivery comments:

                      Best experience I've had with delivery from any website. It was so fast! Definitely a HUGE plus for all my future orders that I plan to make.
