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.
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
Does What Promised
This product does what it says it will. It moisturizes and doesn't irritate acne-prone skin. It feels good on my skin and does't sit on the surface making makeup application impossible.
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.
