Thank you for submitting your review! It will be reviewed by our staff before it is posted.I love this. I rarely leave reviews but I’m so happy with this purchase. I can’t get over how soft, nourished and glowing my skin is after one use!
Customer Care: Hi Joyoshi, I'm so glad you love our Skin Recovery Mask. It's a great way to add that extra hit of hydration for soft, replenished, healthy skin! That it can be added in as a rinse-off mask or left on overnight makes it very easily incorporated into your routine! Kind regards, Marissa - Paula's Choice Customer CareEverybody needs this product in the cupboard. I’m so glad I received this product as a free gift with my last order it’s amazing! Whenever your skin is feeling a bit dry, a bit red, a bit sensitive maybe from the cold weather or could be maybe you’ve overused retinol (like myself) or over exfoliated you need this product. It will help repair your skin barrier and soothe the skin. It quickly helps to heal and hydrate your skin. It doesn’t feel heavy or thick or greasy, after you rub it in its light and soaks in after a few minutes so you don’t have to worry about it going onto your pillow or your hair. It’s more like a thick moisturiser than a mask. I will always have this product as an emergency for when my skin needs a little extra love!
Customer Care: Hi Rd93! Thanks so much for this review of our Skin Recovery Mask! I'm so glad you're loving it. Its amazing texture means that it can be applied and rinsed off (like a normal mask) or left on overnight for that extra hydration hit! If you find your skin feeling more damaged, dry or red typically, consider adding in a hydrating toner like our Skin Recovery Toner! Feel free to reach out if you ever have any questions! Kind regards, Marissa - Paula's Choice Customer CareI’m now 56 and have found over the past two years that my skin has moved from “light combination” - a bit oily on the T-Zone, a bit dry on the cheeks, to all-out dry. In winter, terribly dry and uncomfortable.
I have bought this mask and the Omega + cleanser, serum and moisturiser.
First use of this mask overnight really felt good. Soothing as soon as it was applied and still “there” in the morning.
I’ve been using it three times per week and my skin is much more comfortable and hydrated on the day after using it.
I was disappointed with the Omega + products, but consistent use is making a real difference, so it’s a matter of perseverance (as always!). And this mask boosts it very well.
Customer Care: Hi Denise, thanks for taking the time to write this review! Our Skin Recovery Mask is a great addition to a routine for those looking to address very dry skin! It's nice to hear that combining this with the Omega+ products has helped you see the results from that line as well! You're right, it does take perseverance and some patience to see true results with almost any product! It's normal for your skin to change throughout your life and through the year - I'm so glad that you're finding the new routine that works best for you. Kind regards, Marissa - Paula's Choice Customer CareI think this should be renamed as not only did it make my skin baby soft but also cleared up some spots i had and soothed some irratation. Although it feels rich it doesn't feel greasy and is quickly absorbed into the skin. I've never bought an overnight mask before and to be honest I thought I was buying a 10 minute one but I'm really impressed.

For best results, how often do I need to use Skin Recovery Hydrating Treatment Mask?
Skin Recovery Hydrating Treatment Mask can be used as often as needed. How often you use it depends on your skin type and personal preference. Those with normal skin can use this mask once per week. Those with dry skin will enjoy using this mask more frequently, preferably 2–3 times per week, with one of those times being enjoyed as an overnight treatment. Someone with very dry, dehydrated skin should use this mask (or a very emollient moisturiser) once per day, morning or evening, until his or her dryness has improved.
What is the difference between Skin Recovery Hydrating Treatment Mask and Paula's moisturisers for normal to very dry skin? Couldn't I just use Skin Recovery Moisturizer as a moisturising mask?
Skin Recovery Hydrating Treatment mask has a thicker, creamier texture than Paula's Choice nighttime moisturisers. Since it is meant to be used as a mask (occasionally being left on the skin overnight if the customer prefers or their skin needs this), it has a more slippery, emollient feel than most moisturisers.
