Great Night Time Moisturizer
Purchased

I love this moisture gel! I use it at night before going to sleep, and wake up with very soft skin. I have never experienced any redness or irritation. It is fragrance free!

Locks in moisture for a good price
Purchased

I am prone to blackheads, whiteheads, and occasional hormonal breakouts. To keep this acne at bay requires products containing salicylic acid, which can be drying. After reading a bunch of Birchbox's product descriptions and reviews, I decided to try this Paula's Choice Skin Balancing Moisture Gel. It is super lightweight and happily sits on top of my other skincare products or under sunscreen. It did not clog my pores (unlike other "non-pore-clogging" products I've tried). Also, a little product went a long way and the tube lasted me for over half a year. This gel wasn't quite up to the task of moisturizing all of my skin during the cold winter months in New England but did help seal in my other moisture and provided some protection against the cold and wind-burn.

I love this product soooooo much!
Purchased

It is soft on my skin and doesn't clog my pores! It's also perfect as a primer (for those who wear makeup) as it leaves a matte finish ready for your sun screen lotion or make up. Incredible!

I am in love

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

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

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.
