How to use a cleanser

Wet face and apply a small amount of cleanser with gentle, circular motions. Rinse well. To remove heavy makeup, repeat or use with a clean, wet washcloth.

Here's a step-by-step of your morning & evening skincare application.
Step 1: Cleanser
Wet your face and apply a small amount with gentle, circular motions. Rinse well. To remove heavy makeup, repeat or use with a clean, wet washcloth.
Step 2: Toner
With your fingertips or a cotton pad, gently apply over the face and neck. Do not rinse.
Step 3 Exfoliants
Gently apply with your fingertips or a cotton pad over the face and neck, including the eye area (avoid lash line and eyelids). Do not rinse. Start slowly: Apply every other day and note your skin's response. Then use up to twice daily.
Step 4 Treatments
Dispense a pearl-sized amount to your hand and apply once or twice daily to the face, neck and eye area.
Step 5 Moisturisers
Use a day moisturiser as the last step in your morning skincare routine and apply liberally at least 15 minutes before stepping into sun exposure. As always, it's best to reapply every two hours once the skin has been exposed to direct sunlight. For a night moisturiser, apply a small amount once or twice daily to the face and neck.

Most asked

What is the difference between the CALM Ultra-Gentle Cleanser and other Paula's Choice cleansers?

While all Paula's Choice cleansers are formulated to be gentle, the CALM Ultra-Gentle Cleanser was specifically formulated for sensitive, reactive or compromised skin types. This silky, gel-lotion contains soothing triglycerides, hydrating glycerine and prebiotic sugars that help to safeguard the skin’s delicate barrier. It’s the perfect first step of any sensitive skin care routine.

What is the difference between the original CALM Nourishing Cream Cleanser for normal/dry & CALM Nourishing Gel Cleanser for oily/ combination skin and the new CALM Ultra-Gentle Cleanser for all skin types?

While the original CALM Cleansers for normal/dry skin and oily/ combination skin contain a good mix of soothing ingredients, the CALM Ultra-Gentle Cleanser is a more targeted option for all skin types. This silky gel cleanser is even better suited for the specific needs of extra-sensitive, redness-prone skin. The extra-mild surfactants in the new formula produce a skin-softening lather that gently cleanses while the prebiotic sugars and hydrating glycerine support the skin’s barrier to leave it soothed, hydrated and comfortable.

How does the CALM Ultra-Gentle Cleanser differ from SKIN RECOVERY Softening Cream Cleanser?

The CALM Ultra-Gentle Cleanser is a mild gel-lotion formulated for all skin types experiencing signs of sensitivity. Its soothing texture gently removes impurities while humectants help keep water in skin and prebiotics support a healthy microbiome. The SKIN RECOVERY Softening Cream Cleanser is best for those whose primary concern is dry to very dry and/or flaky skin. It has a creamy-rich texture that gently washes away impurities leaving dry skin relieved, soft and comfortable.

Is the CALM Ultra-Gentle Cleanser suitable for rosacea or eczema-affected skin?

Yes, the CALM Ultra-Gentle Cleanser has an array of barrier-strengthening and soothing ingredients and is suitable even for rosacea- and eczema-prone skin.

Will the CALM Ultra-Gentle Cleanser leave a residue or film on my skin?

No, the CALM Ultra-Gentle Cleanser rinses completely clean. The same applies to all Paula's Choice cleansers.

Should I use an eye or makeup remover before using the CALM Ultra-Gentle Cleanser?

This gentle face cleanser effectively removes most types of makeup. If you're wearing waterproof mascara, long-wear makeup, or other hard-to-remove makeup, consider starting with our OMEGA+ Complex Cleansing Balm.
