Ratings & Reviews

So happy I found you!


This stiff really helped my skin! I could tell the difference immediately! I tried so many products. Not anymore! My search is over! I have super dry sensitive skin because of medication. I was skeptical but am so glad I bought this!




I got the Vitamin C glow


I am a 36 yr old redhead with dry, sensitive face loves this stuff. Great prices, rivals its competitors, and gives me that Vitamin C glow!! You do have to be careful where you store this, remember its supposed to be kept in a cool, dark area. The first time I ordered this, it lasted my 2 months, only because I kept it upstairs where it is not necessarily cool at all times. The next time it lasted me 3 months because I left it in the fridge--really worked out for me. 3 months is more than sufficient time to use.I tend to use it really in 2 months because I apply it directly to my face, which uses up more of the product.

Would not recommend


I typically LOVE Paula's Choice products, but this moisturizer, unfortunately, made me break out. It also somehow left my skin feeling far more dry than before I started using it; so dry in fact, it made my eyelids crack and peel. While overall I'd recommend Paula's Choice, I do not think this product works well.




My favorite for my sensitive dry skin


I just came online to purchase my re-stock of this amazing lotion and found it to be out of stock. I certainly hope it will come back soon, because I can't live without this stuff.




The Best for My Super-Sensitive Skin


This has been my go-to moisturizer for years. It's not fancy, but neither does it irritate my hyper-sensitive skin. Keeps my skin from drying out, even in winter while not clogging my pores. I use it morning under mineral sunscreen (PC Super-Light Daily Wrinkle Defense, which I also love) and nights over either the 2% BHA gel or the new Resist Advanced Smoothing 10% AHA exfoliants.

Saved my dry winter skin!


I use this nightly and it's amazing for my super dry and dehydrated skin! It's pretty heavy though so I'll switch to something lighter for the summer. The tube lasts me just over 2 months

I love this as eye cream


I absolutely love this product as an eye cream. It's very moisturizing and not irritating for this sensitive area. I got several free samples with a past purchase and now I'm hooked with this product and a loyal customer. Since I only use it as a nighttime eye cream, 1 bottle/tube lasts a very long time.




Finding my groove with this product


Moving to FL from IL my skin changed from very dry with eczema to very oily and still eczema. I've had this moisturizer for a while and I recently just picked it back up. I made the mistake of using it in the AM AND PM and my skin didn't like that. So I've reduced to using it only at night. To me it's greasy/leave my skin looking really shiny but I take it as it giving me the "supple" look. It takes a little time to absorb but it leaves my skin extremely soft. In the AM I wash my face with a simple cleanser and apply only a light moisturizer because my skin is still ok from the night before and FL sunshine is no joke to my new oily skin dilemma. This time around I'm going to take my time with it and see how it treats me. Hopefully well.




Wonderful, wonderful!


I am 74 years old and just began using this product after reading that Paula uses this around her eyes. I started using as it just as an eye cream and found it doesn't bleed into my dry eyes and left my under eye area soft, smooth, and with less obvious dark circles. I have since begun using moisture boost as my facial moisturizer day and night. A small amount goes a long way and my skin looks and feels much younger. I notice a big difference. I live in the Deep South and The Moisture Boost lets skin breathe so it minimizes damage from clogged pores and redness from steamy heat.

Ehh it's okay


I don't have any serious skin issues, but I didn't notice any change in my skin or skin texture with the continued use of this product the last 3 months. I have pale, dry to normal 34 yo skin, minimal pore and acne issues. Maybe this will do more for those with problematic skin. It's good for sun protection, but that's about it. And at this price, I'll stick with Cerave. It's just too expensive for that purpose.
