Ratings & Reviews

Finally found the perfect cream!

5

Great for night time moisturiser, thick and creamy yet absorbs well and isn't greasy. My skin looks plump, smooth and glowy in the morning. I switch up my serums etc often, but I always reach for this. I'll use this year round for my normal-dry skin. Works great as a day cream when the winter skin hits. I've also been using this on the backs of my hands and there is a noticeable improvement in the texture of my skin. Ive been a Paula's Choice fan for many years, this is my favourite product of all time!

Great sleeping pack

I am a long time fan of PC products. Recently, I've been using a multilayered k-beauty type skin routine. I use this moisturizer as the very last step in my nightly routine, sometimes mixing it with a little cerave ointment to make it even more occlusive, like a moisture mask/sleeping pack. I love the feeling of this cream on my dry sensitive skin, and I love the smooth look of my skin after sleeping in it. I like that it has a ton of plant butters and oils as well as cerimides. It even works great on my hands. Wonderful product!

MUST HAVE FOR DRY WINTER SKIN!

5

I use the Advanced Skin Recovery kit, but switched to this moisturizer + the Resist Moisture Oil Booster this Winter when the other moisturizer in my kit just wasn't cutting it. I don't think I will go back to the other one. I have used much more expensive products, and this one is the bomb!

IF YOU ARE ON THE FENCE DON'T BE, GO FOR IT NOW!!!!

Please don't discontinue this

5

Paula's products that are marketed for normal to dry skin do very little for me, because my skin is not normally dry, it is abnormally dry. In addition, I live in a desert region, so this is the only moisturizer I can use at night and wake up without tightness the next morning, and that is with hyleronic acid boosts, etc. It absorbs instantly and leaves my skin soft. It never clogs my pores or feels greasy. If you're having these side effects, my guess is that this cream is too heavy for you. That doesn't mean it deserves low stars, it means it's the wrong solution for your skin care issues. I've been using the resist moisturizing spf in the mornings and this at night, but I'm going to have to add this to my morning routine under sun care now that the latter has been discontinued. The other spf options are too drying alone. So I really, really hope the price reduction on this doesn't mean it's about to be discontinued, too. If it is, I'm sunk. Or shriveled, rather.

Best night time cream

5

Amazing formula! If you live in a windy area like Melbourne and always have had red cheeks, this is for you. Although it is not a very hydrating cream, it protects, strengthens chapped, fragile skins and reduces the redness. I use this as my night time moisturizer because it is a little greasy. If you want some more hydration, layer some toner or mist before and after using the cream. This works great as a lipcream as well :-)tw

Holy smokies buy this right now

I grew up in West Texas; I know dry skin. Living in Maine I'm constantly plagued by dry, itchy skin and this stuff is absolutely the only thing that keeps my dehydrated, winter skin happy. Use as directed - last step of skincare routine. It's stellar.

Deep moisture, no irritants, and no breakouts!

5

Every winter my complexion drys out and starts looking rough and aged. I have used many expensive moisturizers (and some cheaper ones as well), but none of them moisturize as deeply as this product. My skin isn't always so dry that I need this product daily, but whenever I use it, I get compliments on how soft my skin looks. Love this!

Best PC cream I've tried

5

I have eczema prone skin, and this product has been really great for me. It's non-irritating, and keeps my skin moisturized longer than any other cream I've tried so I don't have to keep reapplying. It's also been good for dealing with some redness I've been experiencing. Overall an awesome product and I'd recommend it to anyone who has dry skin.
