Additional Information

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

Great serum, average moisturiser

4

I have oily/combination/acne prone skin. If I use this as a moisturiser, I find it quite drying around the eyes in the winter time. When I use it more as a serum and layer a light moisturiser over the top, I really like this. It's brightening, reduces the redness on my cheeks and layers well with other products - particularly the 1% Retinol Treatment. I'm starting my Tretinoin journey and I've purchased a second bottle to use on alternate nights. Ultimately, not a great moisturiser, but still a great product.

This stuff is spectacular

I bought this thinking it would be very basic. It's not. It is better than every moisturizer I've ever purchased and I love high end skin care. I have genetically great skin. This takes it to another level. I use it at night over the 2% or 4% exfoliants with salycilic acid. I wake up and my skin is tauter with beautiful bounce and the vitamin c they have in this is magic. For someone 40+ this is a godsend

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.

Spot on for me

I hesitated to try this because of the previous reviews but glad that I did. I'm using this as my day time moisturiser over my serum (I alternate peptide booster and hyalauronic) and under makeup. As my skin is well prepped, one pump is enough. It absorbs quickly, isn't greasy and leaves my 40+ combination skin comfortable all day. I gave 4 stars, not 5 as I'm not seeing any amazing skin changes from this product, but I'm happy to keep using it.

Really like this

5

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

5

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

5

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.

Great for oily congested skin

5

I use a lot of Paula's products and my skin has never been as clear as it is now. I'm 36 with a very very oily t-zone. I have never been a fan of moisturizers because my skin usually feels more oily or congested afterwards but this makes my skin feel wonderful in the morning and enhances the other products I use. I think if you have normal or dry skin you may want something more moisturizing or heavier though.
