      I use this as a daily moisturizer (under sunscreen during the day or as needed). I only wish it came in a larger size. I find it helps my skin during the transition months of spring and fall and keeps my skin hydrated in the winter. I think you'd need something stronger on your face if you live in a very cold environment and were going outside for long periods of time daily. All in all, a very good moisturizer and one that's been part of my daily routine for some time now. I have occasional bouts of eczema and if I happen to put this on, it doesn't irritate the skin, so I think those with sensitive skin would be ok with this product. I sometimes use this as an eye cream too.

      I have been using this skin recovery moisturizer for several years and like it over most moisturizers I have tried. However, my last order of (last of June this year)
      this moisturizer smelled rancid when I first used it. I still used it and ignored the odor. I tried putting it in the refrigerator between uses but odor only got worse.
      I have been using Cerave but it doesn't come close to being as effective as Skin Recovery. I am reluctant to order again.

      Must have for dry skin and dry climate

        This is the BEST moisturizer! I have normal/dry skin and I live in a dry climate. Having a powerful nightly moisturizer is a must for me. I love how smooth the Recovery moisturizer goes on and soaks in. It is a bit thicker than a standard moisturizer, but I like that. I prefer my moisturizers to really feel like moisturizers - I like to be drenched, especially at night. I wake up feeling ultra-moisturized and bright. If I need an extra kick (like in the dead of winter), I really love to mix in a few drops of the Moisture Boost Oil. But like I said, I like to be drenched and I live in a dry climate. I have been buying this moisturizer for going on three years and I'll never use anything else! Eventually, I would love the moisturizers to come in larger tubes (if that's possible, barring ingredient stabilization issues).

        Finding my groove with this product

        Cons

          Best Uses

          • Night Cream
          • Sensitive Skin

          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.

            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.

              Comments about SKIN RECOVERY Moisturizer - 2 oz:

              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.

              Not for me

              Comments about SKIN RECOVERY Moisturizer - 2 oz:

              I use the facial wash from the recovery line and wanted to introduce this moisturizer as well. Sadly, it's not working out for me. I developed a severe rash on both cheeks along with itching, redness, burning and dryness. I had high hopes for this as I assumed it was good for rosacea prone skin but I guess it's not for me. Can anyone recommend a moisturizer for sensitive skin from Paula? Thank you and sorry for the bad review, I don't like to complain.

                This is the perfect moisturizer to apply sparingly in my dry areas under sunscreen in the day, and all over my face at night. It's too rich to use on my oily areas in the day, since my serum and sunscreen provide all the moisture they need. I love the texture of this, it's so thick but it smooths over the skin and absorbs well.

                  This is what it is - very basic heavy moisturizer. It's rich without being greasy and keeps skin hydrated throughout the day or overnight. I used it throughout the winter when my skin was getting a bit dry. There is nothing wrong with this product - but there isn't anything outstanding about it either. If you need a basic rich lotion, it fits the bill. If you are looking for something to wow you, this isn't it.
