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.

Day moisturizer that doesn't break out my sensitive skin!

I love Paula's Choice products, and this one is no exception. It absorbs really well into my combination skin without irritating it, and to make it a triple-threat: it doubles as a makeup primer! It smoothes out fine lines and imperfections (...or so I've heard. From a friend. That totally isn't me...). I've tried it w/ three different liquid foundations (finger, beauty blender, and brush applications, too), and found that if I apply foundation while my moisturizer is still slightly damp, it really helps to set my foundation.

Best skincare line!

I am a loyal Paula's Choice user after 1 full year! I have never used a line like this and I am so happy I found it! My skin has never been healthier! This moisture gel is very moisturizing but balancing as well. I use this overnight and wake up with supple, hydrated skin!
