amazing cleanser


basic non irritating cleanser that removes make up and sunscreen. it doesn't dry out skin and is just lovely. love that it's fragrance free. It has no real smell but feels soothing




LOVE this cleanser!


I use the entire Calm line morning and night. It has saved my skin (and sinuses). I have sensitive and breakout prone skin that has recently also become oily, and a sensitivity to perfumes/chemicals. Most products are either too harsh and severely dry out my skin, or are too perfumey and make me sick. This is the best of both worlds; an unscented cleanser that has finally balanced out my problematic skin. I have also tried the Hydrolite cleanser, but found it not nearly as effective at removing makeup. Please don't ever discontinue this cleanser!!

Amazing product for sensative skin


Amazing product for sensative skin. After years of struggling to find a product that works, I finally came across Paula's choice. Other products have either done nothing, been too harsh and irritated the skin, or have left my skin white and flaky from stripping all the moister. This cleanser, however, leaves my skin feeling and looking clean, and hydrated (without beeing greasy/clogging pours). I use it twice a day and always follow up with the toner and BHA 2%, and will never use another range of products again. There are a few reviews saying this smells bad - I didn't find this at all. Yes, it doesn't smell like the shroud of chemicals in the perfume isle, but it does have a subtle earthy smell which is quite nice and good change from the majority.

Very nice cleanser


I wanted to compare this to the Hydralight and have to say that it is excellent. The ingredients are state of the art, it is lighter and silkier feeling than the Hydralight. I personally use it as a morning cleanser and the Skin Balancing at night. There is no irritation or stinging with this cleanser, and it does not leave the skin feeling dry at all.




My favourite!


Just ordered my fourth bottle. This cleanser thoroughly cleanses the skin. I do a double cleanse when I am wearing makeup. My skin feels hydrated and clean afterwards. It's good value for money and I will keep using it.




I love This


I use this am and pm. I used to have to use two different cleansers-one to get my makeup off and one to be gentle in the am. This one does both. I do not break out with my acne prone skin and my rosacea is not bothered either. I am 59. Do not get rid of this product!

Best Cleanser I've Used


I've tried a lot of cleansers, and this is by far my favorite one. I love the slip to this product. A little goes a long way, as it easily spreads throughout my whole face, down to my neck and chest. I love that it has no irritating ingredients, since I have oily/sensitive skin with slight redness. Also love the fact that it's a vegan product. I wet my face in the shower with warm water, rub this cleanser all over, then remove with a damp wash cloth. Only thing is the cheap looking packaging, it's so ugly. But the product itself is perfect. I'm back here to order my second bottle. It lasts a while.

Best cleanser I have ever used!


This cleanser has made a huge difference in my skin! One day I used bareminerals powder and my face got really itchy, red, and hot to the touch. I came home and washed my face asap. I was looking in the mirror while I swirled this around my face and I actually saw the redness fade away right before my eyes! Before this cleanser I was using Cerave hydrating cleanser. I ordered samples of this cleanser to try before I bought it. When I ran out of the samples and went back to the cerave my face became red and irritated. Which is so weird!

a lifetime customer


Im very impress by this cleanser. I love the gel like texture, yet it foams nicely. Its a very gentle cleanser, and Im very happy I made the purchased. It does not irritate or strip my skin. I would recommend this product to anybody looking to restore texture and and balace to their skin.



This stuff is great!


I really enjoy this gentle cleanser. My skin isn't super sensitive but I get redness around my nose and eyes. I've tried several cleanser but always come back to this one because it never irritates my skin and it definitely reduces my redness. The only thing I don't like about this cleanser is that it doesn't remove my foundation. This is more like a lotion texture that doesn't foam or become soapy which is fine but to get my mineral makeup off I get my face wet and rub this on then wipe it off to get my makeup off. I then put it on again and actually wash my face (sometimes use a clarisonic). I don't like makeup remover because it irritates my eye area. Overall I do love this cleanser.
