Matte Moisturizer

This stuff works! Most moisturizers make me break out and leave my skin feeling greasy. This has never made me break-out, and leaves my skin matte so I can choose to put on make-up or not. Highly recommend this innovative gel moisturizer.

This moisturizing gel is the perfect fit for combination skin. It goes on light and doesn't leave any oily residue. It's done wonders for my face.

Finally...a skincare product that works!

I am thrilled with this moisturizer. I have been suffering with acne-prone, oily skin for the last few years and have tried everything. I finally decided to give this product a try and I could not be more pleased. The moisturizer is light, provides a soft mattifying coverage and maintains this throughout the day. My pores don't feel or look clogged! It has improved the appearance of my skin and I am now a dedicated Paula's Choice follower.
