Thank you for submitting your review! It will be reviewed by our staff before it is posted.Came off contraception and my skin is now full of breakouts and greasy. After a year I'm still struggling with it as I used to have perfect skin. Seeing the comments about the cream causing breakouts made me want to try the travel size, very happy to say my skin is looking loads better and I'm now going to get a full size. My face is really smooth after using this!
Customer Care: Hi Jen! I'm so happy you decided to try our Clear Oil-Free Moisturizer! This is the perfect option for light hydration and overnight replenishing for breakout-prone skin. To more specifically target those breakouts, use this moisturizer with one of our BHA Exfoliant + Clear Daily Clearing Treatment! Let us know if you have any questions! Kind regards, Marissa - Paula's Choice Customer CareHaving oily, acne prone skin, I really wanted an oil free moisturiser that's rich enough to keep my skin hydrated. The gel/cream like texture keep the product so light but my skin gets all the hydration it needs without clogging my skin. Plus I really wanted to work ceramides into my routine. Win Win. Fantastic product.
Customer Care: Hi Louis, thanks for this great review of our Clear Oil-Free Moisturizer. I'm so happy that you've found it to be hydrating and repairing without being too heavy or clogging your pores. As part of our Clear line, this moisturizer is the perfect light-weight night moisturizer to keep skin hydrated without weighing it down. Kind regards, Marissa - Paula's Choice Customer CareI was really reluctant about using a night-time moisturiser at first, as it seemed like a perfect opportunity to clog up my pores and contribute to my acne-prone skin. However, this product has totally converted me. It is soft, light-weight and a really nice product to put on just before bed. It doesn’t feel heavy or like it’s clogging my pores up at all, in fact it absorbs so quickly and easily that I can hardly feel it.
Customer Care: Hi Rebekah, thanks for your review! I'm so happy you took a chance and tried our Clear Oil-Free Moisturizer and that you love it! It's the perfect lightweight moisturizer for acne-prone or oily/combination skin, letting your skin re-hydrate overnight without a thick, clogging effect. Warm regards, Marissa - Paula's Choice Customer Care Team.I am obsessed! So hard to find a product with ceramides that doesnt include oils or butters that clog my pores. This is lightweight, super hydrating, barrier repairing without breaking me out. My new Holy Grail moisturiser, thankyou PC!!I’ve tried every moisturizer from drug store to Dermalogica and this is the only one worth 5 stars for me. Doesn’t give me spots and it soaks in instantly, I absolutely love itAs I have acne prone skin I was hoping to invest in a moisturiser that would do the job without breaking me out so I was so excited to try this out. After one use I woke up with bumps all over my forehead and after trying again the moisturiser just breaks me out:(
Customer Caree: We're sorry this moisturiser wasn't a fit for you! Be sure to contact our Customer Care team for assistance.I have very bad acne prone skin and its difficult to find perfect products for me. I wanted to order big size but I got it as a gift with my first order in travel size - I must say I would regret if I pay big size for this. I use other clear products but I feel this one break me out much more than other products. Also it feels like it makes my skin 'sticky' (i have normal to combination skin) so I really regret choice of this gift and that I didn't read all reviews before.I got a travel size of this cream as a gift, when I made my last purchase. I'm usually very sceptical about night creams and I just always thought I don't need to use one. Well, I changed my mind after I been using this cream now for more than 2 weeks. It makes my skin so nourished and fresh. Especially I see a lot of improvement in the mornings. Can't wait to get it in full size!I'd purchased this product in a travel-size quantity when I saw it new and didn't do much with it for a month. I returned to Clear Oil-Free moisturiser after having looked again at the ingredients delighted to see how many I know my skin responds well to. I use many Paula's Choice products and it's not as though I disliked this moisturiser at first, I simply underestimated the elegance of the formula. I can't go wrong with this product. I don't have oily skin, my main concern is sensitivity and I require a good hydrating product and this one is a winner. I've just purchased the full size and look forward to using it. Absolutely lovely.I have combination skin and moderate acne and this moisturiser broke me out in tiny painful red bumps all over my face after two uses :( disappointed as I was hoping it wouldn't due it being for acne prone skin. It also left me with dry patches around my eyes that are really sore :(
Customer Care: Hi, and thanks for letting us know of your experience - we're sorry to hear this didn't work for you! We encourage you to contact our customer service department, who might be able to provide you with a refund.I was afraid to use this product as it is aimed at oily skin but on a hot day, this was perfect for me! I love that my skin doesn’t feel clogged up and when I need a bit more hydration, I layer it up with PC’s clinical moisturiser or just some spf!Unfortunately, this product stings my skin! I have been using products from the 'clear' range for acne and oily skin. I like the other products in the range especially the ultra-light hydrating moisturiser spf 30. It is a massive shame that i cannot complete the routine because this product STINGS my skin :(
Customer Care: Hello, and thank you for sharing your experience with us - we're sorry to hear this didn't work as expected for you! Please contact a member of our Customer Care team, who can assist you with a possible alternative.Nice enough but definitely suited to combination rather than very oily skin. A moisturiser can not really cover both types. I wish PC hadn't ended hydra light which was perfect for Me. The other oily options are gel or gel cream, I like light lotions
Customer Care: Hello. Thank you for your review. For anyone who was using the Hydralight products for combination to oily skin, we recommend the Calm collection for normal to oily skin.Great moisturiser that has changed my skin completely :) I have very sensitive combination and blemish prone skin so It can be a nightmare to find a suitable moisturiser.This one has finally lived upto it’s claims I’ve had no irritation less blemishes and overall calmer happier skin. It is now the only one I will use. I only wish you had made this years ago! I didn’t get on well with the daytime spf version, as I tend to react to chemical sunscreens but I just use this one ☝️ as my daytime moisturiser and use a mineral sunscreen on top. Perfect thanks :)I really like the texture of this. Having been a loyal user of the skin balancing moisturiser for years, I liked the lightweight silky feel of that one but struggled a bit with some dry patches while using and it felt a bit lightweight to address those but I was scared to switch as have not had much luck with other moisturisers. This night cream is more dense but my skin is not feeling clogged with it at all. I'm not actually sure what distinguishes it as a night cream but as I didn't get on well with the daytime clear spf moisturise, I am now use this morning and night as my daily moisturiser with no issues at all. My make up sits really well on top all day, skin feels nicely moisturised and not greasy at all, even for my combination acne prone skin! New staple, love it.
