Why is it different?
MOISTURE BOOST One Step Face Cleanser offers the ease of an effective water-soluble cleanser with the feeling of a milky cleansing lotion. This lightly lathering formula feels supremely silky but quickly removes all makeup including eye makeup. It rinses easily leaving skin beautifully soft without a trace of dryness.
Collapse
What does it do?
Unique cushioning ingredients combined with extremely gentle but effective cleansing agents clean skin while preserving skin’s vital moisture barrier. Skin will feel pampered, soft, and comfortably clean.

Collapse
How to use
Wet face and apply a small amount of cleanser to your face and eye area with vigorous, yet gentle, circular motions. Rinse well. To remove heavy makeup, repeat or use with a clean, wet washcloth.

My favourite cleanser

5

If you don't wear heavy make-up, then this is perfect for you. Gets the job done whilst leaving the skin smoothe and soft. A little more watery than what I'm used to but worth the pay off. I use it every morning.

The best cleanser on the market by far!!!!!

5

Removes all make up perfectly in the shower with no need for any other product (makeup remover etc). Leaves dry skin feeling clean, hydrated and comfortable. Puts all other brands on the market to shame!

great cleanser

I really love this cleanser and it does remove my most of my make-up. I have to go over my eye area twice to get all my mascara off but I don't mind the extra step. It is a great cleanser for me because I can use it on my super-sensitive eye area with no burning or irritation. I work 10 hour night shifts in a busy level 1 trauma hospital. When I come home from work, this cleanser feels so rich and soothing to my tired face. I buy the bigger size and it lasts me for 4 months.

Amazing cleanser once you get used to the smell

5

This is one of my standby cleansers that I know will not dry out or irritate my skin. Recently, some of my old favorites have been making my skin tingle despite having no issue with the small amount of fragrance before. This one cleans my skin and leaves it feeling supple rather than tight and itchy like all gel cleansers do. It took me about a week to get used to the smell, and I'm glad I kept usingit instead of returning it right away.

Love this cleanser

5

My skin is acne prone/combo and is really sensitive to cleaners. The wrong cleanser will dry out my skin for days after just one wash. This is the perfect cleanser for me. My skin is clean without feeling dry or irritated. My only complaint is that I would like the bottle with a pump or where the cleanser dispenses from the bottom of the bottle.

Excellent Overall Cleanser!

5

I have been using this cleanser for YEARS! Even as my skin has gone from combo, to oily back to combo and sometimes dry as I approach 50 years old, this cleanser is the BEST! It removes all my makeup and doesn't leave my face feeling tight. I wasn't aware it was discontinued because I buy extras when I place orders. I am happy it was brought back and I didn't have to panic! My other favorites are they Hydralight SPF 30 Moisturizer and the Skin Balancing Toner!

Thank you for bringing back this excellent product line :)

I can't thank you enough for bringing back the Hydralight and Moisture Boost product lines. I am so happy. These are the two cornerstone product lines that kept me with Paula's Choice since day 1, and they always provide the best results with absolutely no irritation or tightness, or dryness or redness....and they don't cause breakouts. These are absolutely the two best product lines that you offer (and the best products lines in any skin care line on the market). I'd like to say that I'll be ordering these items right away, but I have a little bit of those products already stocked up from when you announced that you were discontinuing these two lines. Rest assured, when my supply runs out, I will be ordering these products regularly, as I always have done. Please don't ever stop selling these two wonderful product lines.

Love this cleanser

I fell in love with this cleanser because it took my eye makeup off easily and thoroughly. Was devastated when you discontinued it. I tried the product that you suggested was the same as this one. NOT!! The alternative cleanser broke my face out. I had to stop using it. THANK YOU for bringing Moisture Boost cleanser back!

Slightly Drying but Gets Makeup Off

5

This cleanser would be great for someone with normal to combination skin. It's great at removing makeup and is not irritating. I'm 71 yrs. old and had oily, break-out skin most of my life. In past several years dryness has been getting the upper hand. I've been using Skin Recovery cleanser for several years but the newest version doesn't remove makeup very well. I found an old bottle of One Step Face Cleanser (ingredients are exactly the same as Moisture Boost). I use Skin Recovery in the morning and the other at night when I have to take off makeup. The Moisture Boost is slightly drying so I quickly apply Paula's dry skin toner, serum and moisturizer products for overnight dry skin relief. I wish Paula's choice would bring back the old formula for Skin Recovery Cleanser that use to do it all, but until then I'll alternate between the two.
