Paula's Choice

Birchbox Breakdown

Battling wrinkles and blemishes seems like a bit of an oxymoron, but it’s an all too common fight for those with oily and combination skin. This antioxidant-packed lightweight gel hydrates and brightens, repairs damage and signs of aging, prevents acne, and acts as a perfect makeup primer—resulting in a smooth, more youthful-looking complexion.

How it Works

Powerful antioxidants and skin-repairing ingredients stimulate collagen production, repair sun damage, and reduce the appearance of dark spots. Lactoperoxidase kills breakout-causing bacteria, while soothing agents calm skin and promote its natural repair process. Gentle enough for use around the delicate eye area.

How to Use

Smooth one to two pumps of lotion onto cleansed skin, including around the eyes. Use day and night.

Water, cyclopentasiloxane (silicone slip agent), octyldodecyl neopentanoate (thickening/skin-conditioning agent), vinyl dimethicone/methicone silsesquioxane crosspolymer (silicone texture enhancer), glycerin (skin-identical/repairing ingredient), sodium ascorbyl phosphate (stabilized vitamin c), cetyl alcohol (thickener), niacinamide (cell-communicating ingredient), dimethicone (silicone slip agent), butylene glycol (slip agent), cetearyl alcohol, glyceryl stearate, peg-100 stearate (thickeners), polysilicone-11 (film-forming agent), adenosine (cell-communicating ingredient), epigallocatechin gallate (antioxidant), glucose oxidase, lactoperoxidase (skin-clearing agents), boerhavia diffusa root extract (plant extract/antioxidant), xanthan gum (binding agent/emulsifier), glucose (skin-identical/repairing ingredient), ceteareth-20 (solubilizing agent), decyl glucoside (emulsifier), citric acid (ph adjuster), phenoxyethanol (preservative).

Great moisturizer
Sampled

This was a nice product. I felt like my skin looked smoother afterward. I run, so this was a nice refreshing moisturizer for my wind-and-sun-beaten face. :)

Doesn't Clog Pores!
Purchased

I use this as my moisturizer and last step in my nightly routine, and sometimes in the morning as a makeup primer. I have been using this product in conjunction with Paula's Choice RESIST Anti-Aging Clear Skin Hydrator for the past two weeks and my skin is already softer and blemishes have been reduced! Your skin feels damp (some may refer to this as "greasy") when you put it on, but by morning skin is soft and hydrated. I cannot yet comment on the anti-aging aspect as it has only been two weeks; but I am very happy with these two products!

Not thrilled.
Sampled

I did not love this product. I still broke out as normal after using this product for a while. It didn't seem overly moisturizing either.

The only product that has EVERY worked!!! I am ordering the entire line. I can only imagine how great my skin is going to be!!

Best face moisturizer ever!

This is the best moisturizer I have ever used! I have very oily skin and it keeps it feeling fresh all day long. It leaves my skin feeling SO soft! It also doesn't have a strong smell so it doesn't irritate my very sensitive skin.

Great for my skin
Purchased

I've avoided moisturizer for years because I'm so acne prone, but Paula's Choice has been a godsend for me. Their Clear line has made my skin more clear than it has ever been, but I was worried about moisturizing because I didn't want to bring the acne back. So far so good on this moisturizer, though. It feels great and NO acne. And believe me, I consider myself an excellent "does it cause acne" test case. At the risk of sounding like an infomercial, I've been recommending Paula's Choice to everybody I know lately.

Made me break out
Purchased

I purchased this product because it had such good reviews but after using it for about a week my face was covered in pimples. Very disappointed since it was kind of expensive for a moisturizer.

Wish it was 5 stars

This product is amazing and after I received the sample I ordered the full size product immediately. It works great, absorbs quick and leaves your skin feeling hydrated. My only complaint is the size of the full size bottle and the packaging. It did not last long and toward the end of the bottle I had to unscrew it to get the last remaining bit out. I was not using an excessive amount because other full size lasted much longer. I would love to order again but cannot afford the price every few weeks.

good product
Purchased

I have been using this for about a week. I think it is pretty good but I really don't see no change in my fine lines. It does help with my acne. I think the price is just a little high that's why I deducted a star.

Silky smooth
Purchased

I love the feel of this gel! It is hydrating and goes on very smooth. It absorbs into my skin very quickly. I am hoping it helps with my red marks and blemishes, so time will tell if this product delivers. I have high hopes!
