Why is it different?
An unprecedented combination of ceramides, plus retinol and vitamin C, in one moisturiser for dramatically younger-looking skin. This is the first formulation with our CollagenSupport Complex, which acts as a binding agent to keep the outer layers of skin hydrated and resilient.
Collapse
What does it do?
As we age, the ceramides that keep skin healthy and strong decline. This formula steps in to give skin back five essential ceramides to restore firmer-looking, supple-feeling skin. Retinol and vitamin C further help skin to regain its vitality, while soothing emollients soften the appearance of wrinkles.

How to use
At night, use as the last step in your skincare routine. For daytime, follow with a broad-spectrum sunscreen rated SPF 30 or greater.
Note: This anti-ageing moisturiser contains a stronger, highly focused mix of anti-ageing ingredients, including several forms of vitamin C and retinol. For best results, do not apply at the same time as other vitamin C or retinol products until you see how your skin responds. If you experience signs of sensitivity, reduce frequency of use.

Ratings & Reviews

Best firming moisturiser I've ever used

5

This product is everything and more. My skin is thriving - my AM routine is cold water rinse, spray mist, niaciminade serum, then this great moisturizer before applying makeup. PM - cleans, tone, AHA 10% x 2 week, Retinol intensive serum every other night, BHA 2% on the other night's, Olay night moisturiser but everything else is PC. I mask 3 times per week - 2 moisture mask and once clay. So yes I do invest time in my skin and at almost 57 I know I look at least 10 years younger so this product has given my skin that little something. Luminosity increased, firmness increased, tone increased, texture increased, lines appear to have reduced and plumpness increased. That's my review after 3 weeks - I will certainly buy again.

Really like this

I found this to be a lovely moisturiser, not thick and absorbs quickly. I have always used a 3.6pH exfoliate/toner, Paulas boosters and the omega complex. The introduction of the new AHA and this moisturiser has made my skin much more smoother an firmer. My skin is normal thanks to Paula but I would not think this moisturiser is enough for dry skin.

I love it

I'm really surprised this cream has negative reviews! I use mostly at night after my boosters (retinol, ha and peptide usually although I do mix it up). I find this moisturiser effective and to have a lovely texture and feel. My skin looks exceptional the next morning - bright and lush. I'm 55 and normal to dry

This product is all it can be and more...so impressed

I have used PC products for 15 yrs and am always keen to try any new additions to the melting pot of awesome products available. This product does exactly what it states. Use a small amount on face and neck at night and wake up with visibly firm and nourished skin. It's an absolute winner.

Great Moisturiser

5

I'm 52 yrs old, but my skin has no real issues, & I would consider it normal. I'm not denying other opinions, but when I saw the only reviews weren't that positive, I was amazed, and felt I had to provide my own experience with this product. I love the way this moisturiser glides over my skin. It provides a beautiful base for my foundation. It's lightweight, easy to apply, & gentle. I'm ordering more. It would be nice to know how much is left when you know it's running down, but you could say that for a lot of dispensers. If you have normal skin, don't bept off & give it a go.

I really like it

I have very sensitive skin that reacts with redness and breakouts to most products and for a long time I had only been able to use the Resist Barrier Repair Moisturiser. I tried some of the others in Paula's range without success. As I had used it for a number of years I thought I would try this new product based on its description and despite the mixed reviews. I am very glad I did. I felt a little warmth on my extremely sensitive right cheek the first night I used it but no irritation since. I use it twice a day, now with the two new acids in the Resist range (either the 10% AHA or the 4% BHA which, amazingly, I found to be non-irritating). I am still on my first container so it's a little early to judge the product's anti-aging powers but it moisturises beautifully.

Give it time

5

I was very excited to try this and purchased it as soon as it was released. After trying it out for a few days I also agreed with the other reviews that it wasn't very Moisturizing and often found myself adding a layer of the recovery cream or the moisture boost oil, the more emollient the finish the more flattering it looks on my skin so I wasn't that happy with the look and feel of this product but after a month I Started to notice the results, my skin is the best it has looked, the only thing I have changed in years was this new Moisturizer and I definitely can see the difference so my verdict is it may not feel as nice as some of the other Moisturizers by Paula's choice but the results were the best yet. If you are after results give it time, it worked for me :)

Best firming moisturiser I've ever used.

5

I am really happy with this product and it has officially become my favourite day cream. I use serums at night and layer them but prefer to use a light serum during the day with a moisturiser that doesn't leave my skin feeling greasy. I have normal skin but slightly dry around the eye area so this works beautifully. I am really surprised to read that some ladies don't like it. I am always aware that anything firming can leave skin feeling tight but that's the pay off so I make sure to hydrate up at night with heavier serums and wake with fully hydrated and plump skin. As I'm using retinol products which are also drying I make sure to use them only 3 times a week but as a stand alone moisturiser this one is firming and non-greasy and frankly - I love it!!!! Make up stays put and looks fresh all day without needing any touch ups. What's not to love??
