Additional Information

Why is it different?
SKIN RECOVERY Hydrating Treatment Mask pairs some of the richest emollients with plant- and vitamin-based antioxidants to meet the thirsty needs of dehydrated, rough-textured, patchy skin. This exquisite moisturizing mask is like a big drink of water for skin, so you wake up with a renewed, younger-looking complexion.
What does it do?
Provides an outstanding combination of rich plant oils and essential lipids that dry, thirsty skin needs to replenish itself. Plant- and vitamin-based antioxidants visibly calm redness and signs of dehydration that can make skin look dull and uneven. The creamy formula instantly restores a look of radiance and banishes signs of dryness. Formulated to be gentle enough for sensitive skin, including skin prone to eczema.
How to use

Use on clean skin. Apply a generous layer all over the face and neck (if needed). Leave on for at least 20 minutes, or, if needed, overnight. Rinse thoroughly with tepid-to-warm water. May be used as often as needed.

Ratings & Reviews

Not a fan


There is something about this product, the scent, the texture, the way it felt on my skin that makes it irritating and unusable. I wanted a good mask for the cold dry winter and this really disappointed me.

This mask instantly solved long-standing eczema-skin patches


I love this mask. Years ago I had long-standing eczema-like skin patches above my eyebrows and around my mouth. The patches would get much worse when I was under stress. One day I started using this product, and my relief was almost instant! The patches soon completely disappeared. That is when I really started using Paula's Choice products for my skincare needs. I was so impressed by the performance of this mask on my skin, and I have found most of Paula's products to be excellent since. I use this cream as a mask, but my daughter uses it for everyday moisture. .

Super hydrating but not greasy


Only product that hydrates my ultra-dry skin in the dry winter months. I've discovered the tip of using it as a night cream and my skin has never been so plump and hydrated. Never. My skin looks better now than it did in my 20s. I avoid the eye area. I tap tap tap on a heafty dose of PC eye cream all around my eyes at night. In the morning I use BHA lotion and a light moisturizer and my skin is hydrated all day. The overnight mask keeps my skin in perfect shape all day.

Lovely mask


I use this mask two ways. As a mask by itself, leaving on overnight. Also as a last step on my night time skincare routine.

The perfect treatment after a rough day


I love reaching out to this mask after a day where I have been exposed to the sun for too long or had wear very heavy makeup. After cleansing and applying serum, I like to apply a good amount of this mask and keep it overnight. It does come out as a very thick formula, so for me it is more than enough for a great night treatment. It helps restoring and "cooling" off the skin after an strenuous day, and the next day the skin feels revitalized, supple and bright.

A winter staple


This is a life saver in the dry and cold winters. I use this as a moisturizer at night on just my dry areas, and use something lighter on my oily areas. I'll use this all over as a mask while relaxing at night.

Great in combination with a moisturizing routine


I really enjoy this product. I have very dry, flaky skin and I use it about once a week to soften my skin and add a hydrated glow. I noticed that if I leave it on long enough it begins to dry down on my face, but when I wash it off with a damp cloth it becomes emollient again and slides off easily. For that reason I personally never use it overnight, only for about 30 minutes to an hour, after which I wipe it off and do the rest of my night routine. I would recommend it if you need to add a non-daily boost of moisture to your regimen, to soothe your skin after a strong treatment, or for special occasions when you want extra hydrated skin.




Not for me


Mask is a Very thick texture, Did not absorb into my skin, dried in a cakey-matte finish. Was hoping for great moisture post mask treatment but my skin was still flaky and dry. Bummer! Happy I can return it but bummed to have to pay for shipping.




Would not recommend


I find this doesn't absorb well when I apply it and when it eventually sinks in it drys matte and doesn't feel moisturizing. The next morning I can't even tell I went to bed with a mask on. I find the radiance mask hydrates more and find myself reaching for that for hydration instead.

Great multipurpose product!


I have combination skin - it is naturally quite oily, but sometimes becomes very dry and flaky from the prescription retinol cream I use for acne. My favorite uses for this hydrating mask have been as an eye cream at night, and in the morning I will actually mix a pea-sized amount of this mask with my facial cleanser and use the mixture to wash/exfoliate to create a smooth surface before putting on makeup. Works great! I have even used it on my lips at night in the winter months when really chapped.
