Thank you for submitting your review! It will be reviewed by our staff before it is posted.I previously gave this moisturiser 2 stars, but decided to give it another try. No stinging this time, so I assume my skin barrier was damaged previously. I have tried five different PC SPFs for oily/combination skin and must say that this one is the best for oily skin. It really helps to control the shine.
Hi Nora - Thank you for giving the Skin Balancing SPF a second chance, sun exposure is one of the major causes of a damaged skin barrier. We are happy to know is working for you this time! Warm regards, Alexandra - Paula's Choice Customer Care TeamMy skin is not super sensitive, but somehow this cream causes stinging for the first 5-10 minutes after application. Unpleasant experience. Unfortunately, I missed the return policy within 60 days. However, this is the only PC product that did not fit me.
Customer Care: Hi Nora, thanks for taking the time to leave your review. I'm sorry that our Skin Balancing SPF 30 isn't the right fit for you and that you are no longer able to return it. I'd recommend checking out our Resist Youth Extending SPF 50 Moisturizer for an alternative daytime moisturizer for oily skin! If you'd like more personalized advice please don't hesitate to contact our Skincare Experts! Kind regards, Marissa - Paula's Choice Customer Care.
