Thank you for submitting your review! It will be reviewed by our staff before it is posted.I really wanted to love this product but my skin is very sensitive, acne-prone and dry. I started to get red blotchy patches all around my face the night I started to use this moisturiser, and now it’s progressed to whiteheads and pustules.
Customer Care: Hi there! We're sorry this wasn't a fit for you! Be sure to contact our Customer Care for assistance.I use PC choice regularly and love them but this is the one product that just doesn't work for my combination sensitive skin. I had high hopes, and apply after the 2% BHA gel but it just makes my face sting.Along with the omega+ complex moisturiser this is another daily favourite of mine. I've always had eczema & dry skin so my skin is always sensitive and easily dehydrated. This last year my skin has been super sensitive, I dont know why, maybe an age thing. This is when I first found this moisturiser. So soothing, hydrating and within minutes it calms any burning and stinging sensations I can get from the weather or other skincare/make up products. I've dabbled in another very well known fragrance free/sensitive brand and recently started using this again straight after cleansing and toning (PC products of course!) and this knocks spots off what I was using. It's all my complicated skin needs and I feel so comfortable. I'm now using it again underneath the calm spf moisturiser and at night after applying a hydrating serum. I wake up with my skin still hydrated and soft and that's saying something being in the middle of a British winter. I now know this is what keeps my skin so happy and happy skin is healthy, younger looking skin!I used to use the Clinical Ultra Rich moisturiser, and swore by it as one of the most hydrating and repairing moisturisers for my skin. I suffer from really reactive eczema which makes my face swollen, dry, itchy and tight. For some reason that moisturiser stopped working for me, so I tried this one instead. It's absolutely wonderful - it leaves my skin feeling soft, hydrated and it just glows! I am completely bowled over, and will always buy this. I just wish they did it in a larger size!I tried many creams but this one is the only one that makes a difference. My skin doesn't look that red anymore, it looks better and feels more comfortable. I highly recommend it if you have normal to dry skin.I have tried many and this is the ONLY moisturiser which cures the tight feeling of winter skin and keeps it feeling hydrated all day. Had this tube for a while and it has been a life saver rediscovering it now that the weather has turned. I don't like SPF so use this for day and night.I bought this when my rosecea and dry skin was flaring up and it very quickly soothed it. Very hydrating and calming. On my second bottle and will buy again. I am only knocking 1 star off for the cheap looking bottle it comes in. I have several PC products but the redness range is the only one with this cheaper style packaging.I have very dry skin with rosacea and find this moisturiser thick and nourishing. I would not rave about it as much as other reviewers as my redness endures - but we are all different. For me, my skin feels slightly greasy after use but I prefer that 110% over flakes going everywhere. Anything lighter than this wouldn't be good enough to combat that. I do find this quite similar to Cetaphil Moisturising Cream (not lotion), but slightly better - it does seem to last a long time and over a few months of daily use my face does feel much better.This is by far the best cream I have used, I have rosacea and my skin gets very red and angry. This cream sinks into the skin like a dream leaving no tacky residue or film on the skin. My skin feels really smooth in the morning, it has really helped with the redness, probably by 80% so far. I use the cleanser from this line for dry skin, the BHA, the serum and this cream, they are wonderful products, my skin has never been this good I am amazed, my skin actually looks normal.
Thank you so much for bringing out this Calm range :)

I have dry skin. Which Paula’s Choice moisturiser should I use?
Several Paula’s Choice moisturisers would work well for you. Choosing the perfect moisturiser has a lot to do with personal preference and trying a product to determine which one works best on your skin. A good place to start, especially if signs of ageing are a concern, is with our Resist Barrier Repair Moisturizer. If you want a richer texture, try Calm Moisturizer or Skin Recovery Replenishing Moisturizer. Resist Intensive Repair Cream is excellent for facial skin that’s dry all over, while those with uncomfortably dry, tight, eczema-prone facial skin should try Clinical Ultra-Rich Moisturizer for relief. It’s also helpful to use our Resist Super Antioxidant Concentrate or Skin Recovery Super Antioxidant in combination with (on top of or underneath) any moisturiser you apply. You may also wish to treat your dry skin to frequent applications of our Skin Recovery Hydrating Treatment Mask.
Is Calm Moisturizer OK for rosacea-prone, dry skin?

My skin is dry, but I rarely suffer from redness or irritation. Can I still use the Calm Moisturizer?
Calm Moisturizer is suitable for normal to dry skin. Although the moisturiser contains specific ingredients to soothe redness and irritation, you can also use this cream if you do not have these issues! It's just a wonderful soothing and moisturising night cream!

Hydrating, exfoliating lotion reveals a smooth, radiant complexion.
Ultra-gentle serum calms and hydrates irritated, red and sensitive skin.
