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.

Hydrating

I love this moisturizer and have been using it for a couple of years now. I love it at night after I have applied treatments including serums and acne med. The gel is goes on smoothly and dries quickly.

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.

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!

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! :)

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.

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!

Good moisturizer for combination skin
Purchased

This moisture gel feels like silk on my skin! With combo skin, it's hard to find the perfect moisturizer. This is the closest I've come! It moisturizes my dry skin without overdoing it, and it keeps my oily T-zone matte for several hours before I need a touch up.
