Thank you for submitting your review! It will be reviewed by our staff before it is posted.I'm generally a very big fan of Paula's Choice products and they are almost the only skincare I use nowadays - don't want anything else, because I find most of the products amazing (!). BUT this moisturiser doesn't work well for me. It for one doesn't do a great job of moisturising my normalt to dry skin - it kind of feels to heave at the same time of feeling dry on my skin. And it doesn't either work well with my sensitivity. I really want to call attention to the fact that none of Paula's calm/redness series work well at all for me! I suffer from perioral dermatitis, and it is almost impossible to find skincare that 'fit' this exact condition :( I would really love to see skincare made with this in mind.
The best one they have had that worked pretty well for me was the old green one added a bit of moisture renewal oil booster.Excellent product, reducing skin redness after application of a strong retinol product on my sensitive skinSo soothing and light. Best cream I've ever tried. My skin has never been so calm.

Frequently asked questions
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?
Yes! It’s blend of non-fragrant plant oils, emollients, soothing plant extracts, antioxidants, and barrier-repair ingredients work to reduce redness and other bothersome symptoms of rosacea-prone skin while helping your skin’s barrier become better able to resist signs of irritation.
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!
