Ratings & Reviews

Godsend (even for my oily skin!)


This is hands down the most soothing and nourishing face moisturizer I've ever used! I was hesitant to try it initially because it's more marketed toward drier skin types, but somehow this works beautifully for my oily skin. My skin actually looks smoother (especially my pores), healthier, and vibrant now - it's unbelievable. This moisturizer is rich but somehow not greasy; it's perfect now that I'm using Tretinoin at night and Aczone in the morning. I can't imagine being without this moisturizer now!

If they discontinue this I will cry


Does everything it promises. I used to have a dry patch under my right eye. Since using this it has cleared up. It's even safe around the eyes so I don't need an extra eye cream. Cannot rate this high enough.

Finally found a super moist moisturiser


I've been sampling and testing PC daily moisturisers for a while, I purchased Skin Recovery Replenishing Moisturiser and Clinical Ultra-Rich Moisturiser but found Moisture Boost Hydrating Treatment Cream the best and most moisturising. I have very very dry skin and normally like heavy oily moisturisers but this is smooth and light and still really moisturising. In extreme dry weather I'll add a few drops of Resist Moisture Renewal Oil Booster after applying to get my oil fix. I use it both morning and night and use a SPF foundation in the day.

favorite cream, like ever.


I used to purchase & use the skin replenishing moisturizer until I found out about this baby! This cream is awesome for dry skin. Some creams tend to make my face/skin feel oily, not this! The only con I have regarding this cream would be the size. I really wish it came in bigger sizes! I'm not a "pea-sized amount only!" type of girl. Therefore, this cream doesn't last me as long as it should, I guess. I will continue to purchase this cream as I have been!

Happy it's back


Love this moisturizer and I'm happy it's back! Only problem I have is that it has more than doubled in price since I started buying this about 10 years ago. (Used to be $12)




My favorite moisturizer ever


I was so bummed when this was discontinued as other moisturizers don't compare and now it's back! It's creamy but not too heavy and incredibly soothing, keeping moisture in my dry skin. H had a dry patch on my neck and was using unscented body lotion for dry skin on it which didn't help at all. Used a small amount of this and it felt better instantly and went away. Please don't ever stop making this, it's a skin saver.




Does exactly what I need - Gentle on dry skin


This stuff does what it says. I have very sensitive dry skin and some moisturizers will irritate it. This one solves my dry patches with no irritation. I have no need to use any other face cream. Paula's Choice - don't stop carrying this!




Amazing night cream for my combination skin


Very good night cream for my combination sensitive skin. I have rosacea and breakouts so it's always complicated to find products that help my concerns without making my other problems worse. This is a great cream that helps to moisturize without causing breakouts. I only use it at night because during the day it's too moisturizing for my combination skin so my skin can look oily.

THIS. This is what ya'll need. My skin is super sensitive, and doesn't agree with just any skincare. But it does love Paula's Choice -- this moisturizer is everything. I've repurchased it 5x already, the only downside is how small it is. I'm not a "pea-sized amount" type of gal - so maybe that's why. But Paula's Choice really should consider making this product into a bigger size. Rack the price up, I don't even care, just make it last longer!
