Lovely light moisturiser

5

This moisturiser is so nice and light! It doesn't contain any silicones so I mix it with other serums or oils I want really easily. It is so refreshing and cooling on the skin. I have dry skin and so it's not moisturising enough for me but I use it to mix with oils and it works well like this. And the smell is lovely but don't worry there is no fragrance in the ingredients. It layers well if used correctly.

My Acne Prone Skin Approves!

As a commuter & city dweller having an arsenal of products that will help strength & protect my skin is an absolute 'must' (city hustling takes its toll!), which is why I was drawn to this product, and it has not disappointed. I have acne-prone, combination-oily skin and have not experienced any breakouts with this product. Its light-weight, provides adequate moisture to the skin, and I like the interesting and diverse range of skincare ingredients in this product. This is a winner for me, and it will certainly be apart of my evening skincare ritual. If you are prone to acne I would give it a go!

Not one of my fav's

I've just started using this cream for my night time moisturiser but sadly I won't be purchasing this one again because of the smell it has when applied. I find it slightly sticky on the face also.

Unfortunately this is not for me

I have been using Paula's products for many years and was really hoping to like this moisturizer. Unfortunately it felt very sticky and uncomfortable on my face and after using it twice I ended up throwing it out.

Not great...

I have tried the Essential Glow Moisturiser and Cleanser in this range and loved them, so thought I'd try this one when it went one sale. However, unfortunately I don't like this at all. Firstly, I thought the texture would be richer for a night cream, second, it felt tacky/sticky on the skin and thirdly the smell is very unpleasant. Sadly, a miss for me.
