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.

Winter Hands


Has anyone noticed how beautifully Skin Recovery Hydrating Treatment Mask keeps cuticles soft and hangnails at bay? After applying to my face as the last product at night I use what is left on my fingers to massage into the cuticle area. It is better than any cuticle oil I've ever tried. I love, love this product.

Nothing else works on my dry skin


I started having dry skin and Rosacea (nose only) Winter 2017 after injections for osteoporosis (first side effect is dry skin). Dropped my pricey Skinceuticals routine, which made skin worse and very sensitive, in favor of PC because of price, no fragrances, guarantee, honesty about ingredients,etc. Skin Recovery routine was good, but at night I still struggled with red patches and tightness. Bought Skin Clinical Moisturizer, which helped but still woke up red. Then came this mask- first I used it for 20min every once in a while, and skin flushed. Slowly skin accepted it better, and this Winter I've used it everyday in the AM as moisturizer- got the idea from reviews, which is healing my skin! I put it on when I wake up and leave as long as possible until I wash my face, sometimes 3hrs. I still can't use it for the whole night, but the everyday use has made skin less red and have fewer flushes, which makes it easier to use only Clinical after Omega serum at night. Lifesaver! FYI I'm 52, medium to fair, on Tretinoin 0.5% for many years, 2-3x/wk. Use Skin Recovery cleanser/toner, 8% AHA lotion, Omega serum, Clinical moisturizer, Hydrating mask daily during cold weather.




I love this mask


I was on the hunt for an overnight mask that was fragrance free given my atopy prone skin (I suffer from random urticaria) and that is when I fell on this mask. This mask was my first purchase from PC and made me obsessed. 2 and half years later, I still repurchase this mask especially in winter and use it once to twice a week to give a boost of hydration to my skin. It's affordable and really works. I would like to try the radiance mask but I find a little over my budget for the moment.

My daily moisturizer!


So I do not use this as a mask, this is just a great moisturizer for desperate dry-skinned people like me! I have very dry, very sensitive skin, with mild to medium rosacea. I absolutely love this product because no regular moisturizer can cut it. I even make sure I use a high SPF foundation or other SPF product so I can wear this for day-time. In the hottest humid summer months I *will* fall back to a regular moisturizer with spf but the other 90% of the time I'm happily glooping this all over my face :) Good value too compared to other PC products. Soothing and plumping. < 3 < 3 < 3




Winter Savior!


I ordered this mask on a whim after seeing it had great reviews -- needing something to soothe my skin when it's feeling sensitive and dry. I left this mask on more than the recommended time and was really impressed with the results! My skin looked visibly healthier and more even! I love when products exceed expectations ❤️

My favorite PC product


This is my favorite PC product and I use many. Now that the weather is getting colder I was actually looking forward to using it again. I use it at night and my skin thanks me in the morning.




BEST moisturizer for dry skin!


I have really dry skin and decided to try this after reading the glowing reviews. IT'S AMAZING. I LOVE its smooth light texture, and that it's fragrance-free. I use this as my regular moisturizer 2x daily, and I basically need to buy a pallet because I plan to use this forever and I want to lock in today's prices.

Absolutely love


I picked this up as a sample with a previous order and loved it. I have dry, sensitive skin and this is is amazing. It's not greasy, non irritating, and incredibly moisturizing. I often use eucern as my nightly moisturizer but that can take a long time to soak in and makes my hair stick to my face. I prefer this when I want something just as moisturising but lighter (I rotate between the two because this is a little pricey in Canadian dollars). I've never used it as a mask, only as a final step to my nighttime routine. I highly recommend.




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.
