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.

Ideal for Oily Skin but not great for Sensitive Skin
Purchased

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.

I am in love
Purchased

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!

ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL
Purchased

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!

So happy I tried it

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!

Perfect!!
Purchased

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 twice

Does What Promised
Purchased

This product does what it says it will. It moisturizes and doesn't irritate acne-prone skin. It feels good on my skin and does't sit on the surface making makeup application impossible.

Love, love, love it!

At first I was kind of skeptical about it being gel. The skepticism vanished after my first use! I love the light weight moisture and the non greasy feel. I will never use face cream again! I have problems with finding a cream that doesn't make my skin feel greasy after wearing it for an hour or two, even the oil free ones. What else I love about this product, is that toners tend to leave my skin very shiny and glossy looking. The matte finish of this gel eliminated that issue. I've never found a cream that can do this. I would definitely recommend this product to family and friends.
