Finally...a skincare product that works!
Purchased

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.

Best light moisturizer ever!
Purchased

I was in search of a great, lightweight moisturizer that would keep my oily and acne-prone complexion cleared up and manageable. This is a perfect moisturizer that does just that. My complexion is very oily and my skin would break out and get clogged pores when I tried other heavier moisturizers. This goes on smoothly and dries very quickly. You only need a pea sized amount for your face. It feels like I have nothing on after it dries. I use this every night before bed since it doesn't have sunscreen in it. My complexion has greatly improved and I have less acne since I started using this, plus my skin isn't as oily as it was before using this moisturizer.

Love this!

I love this moisture gel! It doesn't leave my face all oily and serves as a good base for make-up. Consistency is just right.

Great Texture!

I love the silky smooth texture of this moisturizer - it's perfect for the summer time when you don't need a heavy moisturizer.

Good if you need a light moisturizer
Purchased

It's true that your skin will absorb this product fast! I like it because it does not break out my skin (which is acne prone), but I need something more moisturizing. Perhaps I could of used this 10 years ago when I was in my early twenties and had more oily skin.

Love this stuff
Purchased

I'm super picky about the texture of moisturizers that I put on my face. I love that this feels super light and silky but still provides great moisture for my dry skin.

Love It!
Purchased

This stuff is my new favorite moisturizer! It doesn't leave my skin feeling oily or sticky or anything like past moisturizers have done. As soon as I put it on, it's like my skin soaks it up right away! I use in the morning and at night. And when I use it at night, my skin is super soft in the morning. This is my new go-to moisturizer! :)

Perfect Summer Moisturizer!

Love this! It's light and silky, which is exactly what I wanted for my oily skin. You get the perfect amount of moisture for the warmer months, and it doesn't leave your face feeling slick and greasy.
I tend to have problems with some products not sinking into my skin and just kind of sitting on top; but with this gel, my face literally drinks it up, leaving a perfect base for my foundation. It also doubles as a primer for me. My face is so smooth and matte that I can apply my foundation or BB cream right on top and everything blends to perfection. Another winner from Paula's Choice!!
