Why is it different?
SKIN RECOVERY Replenishing Moisturizer blends research-proven hydrating ingredients with plant- and vitamin-derived antioxidants that help deliver anti-ageing results for renewed radiance and amazing softness like you’ve never experienced before.
What does it do?
Drenches dry skin with a mix of emollients, anti-ageing peptides, and fortifying antioxidants that work to repel the impact of free-radical damage and help defend against environmental attack. From the first application, skin looks and feels perfectly supple and comfortable, even around the eyes. Loved by those with very sensitive skin, but suitable even for skin prone to rosacea or eczema.
How to use
Ideal for softening and smoothing the face, neck and eye area. At night, use as the last step in your skincare routine. For daytime, follow with a broad-spectrum sunscreen rated SPF 15 or greater.

Ratings & Reviews

Keeps the flakes away


After moving from Dallas to NYC, I've had to figure out how to adjust my skin to the winter up here. Because I use BHA and .5% retinol every night, my skin can get a little dry. Even when using a lighter moisturizer than this plus the moisture renewal oil booster, my skin would feel tight in the morning. Adding this moisturizer tips the scales, and my skin is perfectly moisturized. It is heavy, but that's a good thing for me. Plus the peptides and antioxidants are visibly helping my skin. Love it.

So happy I found you!


This stiff really helped my skin! I could tell the difference immediately! I tried so many products. Not anymore! My search is over! I have super dry sensitive skin because of medication. I was skeptical but am so glad I bought this!




Great for sensitive and dry skin


I mix this product with the niacinamide booster and use it every night. I really love it. I've tried a lot of other skincare products, in comparison, PC products are definitely gentler on the skin, and I get less breakouts.

A blessing for dry skin!!


Hydrates and moisturises the driest of skin. Only use to use the product in winter, but have started using it all year around. Don't know what I'd do without it!




Lovely moisturiser


Great PM moisturiser, really creamy and soothing. Feels lovely on my face, not too greasy, but very emollient. Fabulous product for dry, sensitive skin. Skin feels lovely and still moisturised in the morning.

Wonderful, wonderful!


I am 74 years old and just began using this product after reading that Paula uses this around her eyes. I started using as it just as an eye cream and found it doesn't bleed into my dry eyes and left my under eye area soft, smooth, and with less obvious dark circles. I have since begun using moisture boost as my facial moisturizer day and night. A small amount goes a long way and my skin looks and feels much younger. I notice a big difference. I live in the Deep South and The Moisture Boost lets skin breathe so it minimizes damage from clogged pores and redness from steamy heat.

My winter favorite


This is the perfect moisturizer to apply sparingly in my dry areas under sunscreen in the day, and all over my face at night. It's too rich to use on my oily areas in the day, since my serum and sunscreen provide all the moisture they need. I love the texture of this, it's so thick but it smooths over the skin and absorbs well.

Great moisturizer for winter.


I buy this moisturizer to give my skin a deep moisturizing treat. It is especially wonderful during winter when cold winds and drying indoor heating can leave my skin feeling dry.

Third time ordering


Love the formula of this. Use it morning and night. At night, I add a couple of drops of the Oil serum, and my face is very soft and smooth in the morning. I wish Paula would do an SPF version of this formula. It is the only thing missing. Otherwise, I love it, and will continue to keep buying it!


Whitby, Ontario


Wonderful product!


I'm 28 and I live in CO so the dry pulls moisture from my skin very quickly. I've struggled with dry skin for 7 year and first heard about paulas choice 2 years tried. I tried this line and liked it but didn't love it. I ventured off tried other lines and found my way back and more in love than ever! The key for dry skin especially for me is to exfoliate daily. I can't use this moisturizer on its own I have to combine it with serums but love the way it finishes everything off.
