    Lynn - Great cleanser for dry skin
    Moving from a tropical country to a temperate one meant that my skin suddenly became much drier than I was ever used to. Calm cleanser was a good product to keep my skin fresh and clean without ripping it of moisture. I love the texture of the lotion and how it feels on my skin, as well as how my skin feels after using it!
    Jenny - Soothing, gentle cleanser for dry and/or sensitive skin
    This is currently my favourite cleanser from Paula’s Choice. This cleanser and lukewarm water feels good, leaves my skin clean, not tight or aggravated. The cleanser is a soothing cushion and my face is in better shape after using it.
    Emma - Great for dry skin!
    I find the other review perplexing as I have terribly dry and sensitive skin but I love this cleanser. I have rosacea and my skin is frequently red, itchy, and flaking off in pieces. Aside from regular use, when I experience a flare up, washing my face with the cleanser actively helps to calm everything down almost straight away and stops me from wanting to scratch my face off! It is important to make sure that the water used is not too hot and I find that I have much better results using this at the sink with a soft flannel than in the shower. I have used this for a few months now in combination with a couple of other products from the Calm range and my skin feels much better for it.
    Zoe - Not for dry skin
    I had high hopes for the Calm range, and have bought a number of products. My skin is dry and sensitive, prone to redness, but the cleanser and toner in the Calm range leave my skin feeling dry and taut. The main ingredient of this cleanser is sodium laureth sulphate, and that's always drying, and this kind of dryness increases sensitivity in skin like mine. I am a big PC fan, and almost exclusively use their products, but with this cleanser and toner I am really disappointed. Two uses and I'd like to return them. The skin recovery cleanser and toner were much better suited for my skin.

    Frequently asked questions

    What is the difference between the Calm redness relief collection and other Paula's Choice collections?

    The CALM products are designed specially for those who have extremely sensitive skin that is also prone to redness - the kind of skin that’s intolerant of many skincare ingredients and even the ones we love in our other products. Another difference is that CALM collection contain a broader assortment and higher amounts of ingredients research has shown can bring about soothing relief to uncomfortable, warm-feeling skin. The most gentle and effective anti-ageing ingredients are also included so you’ll see more hydrated, radiant, firmer-feeling skin with diminished appearance of lines and wrinkles, too!
