I am thrilled with this moisturizer. I have been suffering with acne-prone, oily skin for the last few years and have tried everything. I finally decided to give this product a try and I could not be more pleased. The moisturizer is light, provides a soft mattifying coverage and maintains this throughout the day. My pores don't feel or look clogged! It has improved the appearance of my skin and I am now a dedicated Paula's Choice follower.
Ideal for Oily Skin but not great for Sensitive Skin
First off, I really do like this moisturizer. I have extremely acne-prone, sensitive, oily skin and this product does help with the overall oiliness. However, due to the sensitive nature of my skin, I was surprised when this moisturizer actually made my face red. I applied the moisturizer immediately after I applied the toner of the same Paula's Choice brand and was met with a red, uneven tone face staring back at me in the mirror. Ignoring the sensitivity aspect, the texture of this moisturizer is absolutely phenomenal and I would highly recommend it for people with normal sensitivity but oily skin.
Not as smooth or refreshing as other gel moisturizers I’ve used.
I've finally come to the conclusion that while living in Texas, my skin will get oily during the day. With this moisturizer, I feel like it definitely doesn't get as oily as other moisturizers and still helps my makeup go on smoothly!
Can't believe I've never tried a gel moisturizer and don't think I'll ever go back. This is the perfect conception for my combination skin. My skin feels perfectly smooth and not at all oily after applying. Doesn't irritate my sensitive skin either, hasn't made any improvement on my acne however.
