Like a refreshing sip of water for your complexion, this silky gel from Paula’s Choice offers light, soothing hydration—the perfect moisturizer for oily or acne-prone skin types. The fragrance-free formula contains antioxidants and natural extracts that instantly absorb into skin, resulting in healthy, nourished skin with a pretty, matte finish.
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.5
First off, I really do like this moisturizer. I have extremely acne-prone, sensitive, oily skin and this product does help with the overall oiliness. However, due to the sensitive nature of my skin, I was surprised when this moisturizer actually made my face red. I applied the moisturizer immediately after I applied the toner of the same Paula's Choice brand and was met with a red, uneven tone face staring back at me in the mirror. Ignoring the sensitivity aspect, the texture of this moisturizer is absolutely phenomenal and I would highly recommend it for people with normal sensitivity but oily skin.4
If you have combination skin, this won't be enough for the dryer parts of your skin. Great for the oily parts, but wish it was a bit more nourishing for the dry skin.4
I am prone to blackheads, whiteheads, and occasional hormonal breakouts. To keep this acne at bay requires products containing salicylic acid, which can be drying. After reading a bunch of Birchbox's product descriptions and reviews, I decided to try this Paula's Choice Skin Balancing Moisture Gel. It is super lightweight and happily sits on top of my other skincare products or under sunscreen. It did not clog my pores (unlike other "non-pore-clogging" products I've tried). Also, a little product went a long way and the tube lasted me for over half a year. This gel wasn't quite up to the task of moisturizing all of my skin during the cold winter months in New England but did help seal in my other moisture and provided some protection against the cold and wind-burn.5
It is soft on my skin and doesn't clog my pores! It's also perfect as a primer (for those who wear makeup) as it leaves a matte finish ready for your sun screen lotion or make up. Incredible!5
This is now my moisturizer; and i might possibly buy her entire line of products. I have been having a hard time finding anything that wouldn't sting my face, I always thought my skin was dry (even though it's often oily) and that's why the moisturizer would sting my face. I know better now, and a little of this goes a long way. My skin quickly absorbs this too, and I am so happy I finally found something for my skin!5
I liked this it does have a silicone feel to it though, I would recommend it! I love most of Paula's items that I have tried and i could recommend. Them all!5
I have such oily and problematic skin and this is so wonderful! It feels so light weight and it goes on so smoothly. It leaves my face feeling very hydrated but in a good way!5
I am a bit of a skincare junkie. My skin is super oily, I have large pores, and so many blackheads :(
This is the ONLY moisturizer that I have ever used that does not leave me oily after application. It's a very light gel that absorbs quickly, creating a matte canvas for my makeup. I will always use this product!
This moisturizer is perfect for my acne-prone and combination skin. It also feels so luxurious to put on! The fact that it uses natural extracts makes it absolutely the best moisturizer. I've already re-ordered twice5
