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!!

Great product!
Purchased

I have been using this for a little over a month along with the cleanser and toner and have been very pleased. This product is good for oily / combination skin because it keeps the skin moisturized, but the product is not heavy or greasy. I also haven't had any dry patches on my face like I normally get in the winter.

Good product but not moisturizing enough for winter
Purchased

I didn't pay attention that this was a gel. It's not as moisturizing as I need in the winter. I've purchased the lotion before at Paula's website and that is what I'd rather have.

Good for summer
Purchased

I ordered this at the end of the summer when I ran out of my other day lotion. It feels great and is a nice base, but I don't think it will be moisturizing enough for winter in Boston. Can't wait to use it next summer.

Great moisturizer for sensitive skin
Purchased

I have a history of breaking out when using new products, but no problems at all with this one. It does a great job moisturizing my combination skin. I use it at night and it's perfect. Probably not good for people with really dry skin but great for combo and/or oily skin. I have tried a few other Paula's products and have always been more than satisfied.

Fave moisturizer for acne prone skin
Purchased

This stuff rocks. I have been using it for about a year and am glad birchbox started carrying it! It moisturizes my oily skin nicely, without causing breakouts. In the dead of winter, sometimes I have to put something a little more emollient on my eye and cheek area, but I still use this on my acne prone t zone. If you tend to break out from moisturizers, try this. I will continue to repurchase!

Nice!
Purchased

This moisturizer feels really nice going on the skin, and it's not so heavy that I feel bogged down. My skin is very oily, and I do still have to deal with shine throughout the day, but I think the moisturizer has helped a bit.
