I'm very happy with this product. My skin is dry and acne-prone, and this stuff works amazingly well. No clogged pores and breakouts, just satin smooth skin without any flakys. The price is very reasonable. Will repurchase for sure.

Not nuts about this one. It's an almost-clear silicone gel with a slightly heavy and dry silicone finish. It sits a bit too heavy on my skin and the finish is too velvety for me (it reminds me of Smashbox's photofinish primer). It also isn't moiturizing enough for my combo winter skin. I definitely prefer the Super Antioxidant Concentrate to this. It may work for really oily skins.

I'm a huge fan of Paula's products but this one is a bust for me. Nice texture but I seem to be sensitive to one of the ingredients. Found it to be irritating and it made my eyes water.

HOLY GRAIL! This gel moisturizer slips onto the skin so easily and mattes my tzone beautifully. It's perfect in the mornings, and this is a staple of mine!

I had a horrible time with this product. I had an allergic reaction to an ingredient in the product. I liked the texture of this lotion gel and it felt very good going on and really seems to sink right into my skin. But unfortunately it eventually caused my skin to feel "hot" and caused a red rash-like appearance and bumps. So, I returned it. Also, a minor rant on the packaging...when I opened the box (I am not sure if it had leaked a little), but most of the wording on the tube had been rubbed off (so I couldn't even read the ingredient list). Anyway, I returned it. I am sure this would be a nice mositurizer for those not sensitive to whatever the ingredient was that caused this reaction. Also, this company loves giving samples so I suggest to do that first (they had no samples available when I ordered, but I am sure they do by now).

I have never used a moisturizer for my oily t-zone -- I was always afraid that it would break me out or would leave my skin even shinier than it is. Since starting Differin, my skin had been acting very sensitive, albeit still oily, and I felt like this would be a good option. I am extremely happy that I took the plunge and got this moisturizer. Amazingly enough, this gel-like cream did not cause me any breakouts (been using it for a month now) and has relieved my sensitivities. It leaves my skin super soft, yet incredibly matte throughout the day, making it the perfect primer under makeup.

I have been using this product for three weeks. My skin is combo-sensitive-oily, and I use this gel on my cheeks and under my eyes. It hydrates just enough for me (I use it under PC's Antioxidant Goo, so that adds a little moisture, too) while leaving my skin nice and smooth. I have not experienced any negative results at this point.
4/5/03 - I am almost finished with my first tube of this gel, and will be ordering another one pronto. I think I've found a keeper.

Though I am a fan of PC products, I had a MAJOR reaction the first time I used this product. I used it at night and woke up with red, red cheeks and inflamed pores. It contains niacinimide, which I believe my skin is sensitive to. I gave it a 3, because I actually liked the way it made my face feel (soft and provided the right amount of moisture.) If you're not sensitive to the product, you will probably like it.

I think this is a great makeup primer. It leaves a smooth surface that is matte. It has made it so much easier to put foundation on. I wouldn't use it as a moisturizer though...it doesn't moisturize long enough. It might be the perfect moisturizer in the summer when it's humid.
EDIT: I started using this with renova and it has completely eliminated my flakes! Upgrade to 5 stars!
2nd EDIT: OH NO!!!! I'm allergic to this. My face breaks out in red bumps :(

This is an awesome product for my acne prone skin that is dehydrated at times. Feels soothing and does not break me out. This stuff is great!

This product has a consistency and level of emollients that is roughly comparable to DDF oil free moisturizing dew. At first I really liked the performance of this product, but unfortunately, it broke me out after a week of consistent use.

I always love to try all new PC's products, but this one hasn't done much to me. It has just moisturized my skin in 4 hours. I have oily skin, but I still need moisturizer esp. in winter. It absorbs fast on skin and the texture looks thick, though.

I'm really loving this product so far! I've been using it a few days now, and it *really* does leave my skin feeling nice and smooth! I have very combo skin -- some a little oily, some normal, and sometimes dry patches. I've seen an improvement already in just a few days of use.
