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.

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.

It's like a primer
Purchased

Paula's Choice moisture gel is like a light moisturizer and primer in one. It is great for summertime use because it helps curb the oiliness.

hydrating.
Purchased

So far my face has even feeling great and hydrating. I am a little turned off because it helps with wrinkles and I am too young of that but I hear great things about paula choice.. i am going to use this for a couple of weeks and see how it is.

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.

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!!

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.

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.

Nice morning moisturizer
Purchased

I liked using this gel in the morning before applying makeup. Since it has silicones in it, it worked as a primer as well. My only issue was that it wasn't quite as hydrating as I wanted it to be. That was fine for morning use since I don't want to be an oil slick, but I stuck to another moisturizer at night. Will probably buy again once my other light moisturizer is out.

So far so good!
Purchased

I have combination skin and am always on the hunt for the right moisturizer that wont clog and enlarge my pores. I have only used this one a few times now but it has been exactly what I have been looking for! The real test will be in the dead of winter when my skin is usually at it's driest!
