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

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.

I am so happy that I bought this moisturizer. My makeup looks great with this is a primer...and my skin stays soft and supple all day long. I love how the product also combats aging . It's one of the best beauty purchases I have ever made

I have always struggled with oily skin and looking greasy halfway through the day. This moisturizer works wonders. I love the feel of it going on my face. It is super lightweight and absorbs quickly. Will definitely be repurchasing!

Best for combo skin

I have tried lots of serums and gel moisturizers but this has been one of my favorites. It is easy to put on under makeup or before bed. It's really light and has a great texture. Will definitely buy again!

Great for oily skin

I got this as part of the acne solutions value pack, and I really love it. I have dry but oily skin, so moisturizers are usually a problem for me. I feel that it's definitely protecting my skin, but it's light and matte at the same time. Great for daytime wear or under makeup. It may not provide enough moisture to use as my winter night cream, but time will tell. I also use a lot of moisturizer, so the package is a little small. I'm afraid I will run out too fast...

WOW

I had never used a gel moisturizer until I ran across this one. And let me say I never want to change my moisturizer ever again! The results were wonderful. It does exactly what it says it does. My skin has never felt this soft before, and my face is brighter. I keep touching my face because of how soft it is (even though it's not good to constantly touch my face). The gel dry's quickly into a soft top layer to protect skin. When the gel "dry's" it doesn't dry out your skin, it leaves it feeling softer than ever. Honestly the 2 oz seemed pricey at first, but it's worth every penny and I will be purchasing again!

I love this product because it gives my skin moisture, evens out my skin tone and makes a great base for make-up during they day. My face is much less greasy at the end of the day when I use Paula's Choice. I recommend trying this if you have oily skin!

The perfect daytime moisturizer for combo skin
Purchased

I've been in search of a day time moisturizer that'll help control the oily parts of my face. I've been using this moisturizer for about three months now and am thrilled.

It helps to hydrate my face during the day, while smoothing out the look of pores and keep my t-zone in check.

One note: I do have combination skin, so at night I need something that's a little more hydrating. Still, this is phenomenal for daytime use.

There isn't any SPF, but I have SPF built into my primer and foundations to take care of that. Still worth noting that you'll need some SPF if you decide to wear this without makeup containing SPF.

Feels Great
Purchased

This is a rare type of product for me. It works very well with my skin. It glides on and absorbs easily. I usually find most moisturizers glide over and look greasy. Great mositurizer and product line.
