I've been using this for a few months and my skin looks great. I even had someone at work ask me if I was getting botox! I am not! The consistency of this lotion is rather thick almost like a vaseline but it goes on smooth and does not clog pores. I will be buying this one for a long time. This does last a while too as you don't need to use very much.
Such wonderful moisture in every pore it absolutely is working very well to change my dry face to a beautiful canvas to work with makeup
Very moisturizing, but...
I purchased this product because I was looking for a great eye cream and have already been very impressed with the paulas choice product line. I use a moisturizing cleanser along with a hydrator that prevents blemishes while it has retinol in it to prevent aging. I'm 29 and looking for ways to prevent fine lines. As a stand alone eye cream, this is great. It's thick, rich, creamy and does what it claims. As an everyday moisturizer, I'd be a little peeved. It is tiny. Only 2.8 fl oz. it's a great product, but beware the small size you're receiving. I really wish Birchbox would list the size of the products they're selling so you get an idea of the size of the product you're paying for.
Leaves my skin red and irritated
I chose to purchase this because I knew Paula's Choice, as a brand, focuses on using non irritating ingredients backed by science. However, whenever I use this moisturizer, my skin ends up drier the next day, with itchy red patches. It makes my skin feel moisturized after applying it, but once I wash it off, my skin is drier and redder. The moisturizing part doesn't seem to have lasting effects.
I love almost everything Paula makes, but this is one of my favorites. I use Metrogel for rosacea and while it works, it can be very drying. This is a super soothing moisturizer that is not at all irritating, and seems to actually plump up my skin and make it look younger and healthier. I wear it under BB creams and tinted sunscreens sometimes because they aren't always super moisturising either and can settle into fine lines of dry skin.
