This is a very good foundation for its advertised purpose. I have normal-dry, sensitive skin; this foundation did not irritate it. It only slightly highlighted any flakes I had. I don't expect any foundation to be smooth over dry skin, but some are just awful - highlighting flakes you didn't evven know you had. This isn't one of those foundations. I can't comment on …Read more

This moisturizer should almost be labeled more of a treatment than moisturizer by Paula's Choice. I have normal-dry, rosacea-afflicted skin, and find it not rich enough as a moisturizer, as others have noted below. I'm also confused by the "barrier repair" claim, as it contains retinol. If your barrier is truly impaired, retinol would probably just irritate it further, not …Read more

I really like this cleanser. I've been using a handful of sample packets for a few weeks. I have normal-dry, rosacea-afflicted skin that is extremely sensitive. This has caused no irritation, and combined with the matching toner, my skin is calmer than it has been for some time.

As others have noted, it does tend to sting slightly around the eyes. I do use a separate eye …

Excellent product. I respect Paula Begoun for what she does, but at times, her delivery irks.

I have normal-dry skin (with some extremely dry patches through the year) that is extremely sensitive and rosacea-afflicted. I use this after cleansing morning and night. It truly does calm my skin both in appearance (less red, less irritated looking) and feel (less itchy and dry/tight …

Excellent cleanser. Bought based on reviews. Love that it's fragrance-free. I usually don't see a need to buy a "high end" cleanser (fine with Cetaphil), but with this, you need an amount smaller than even a pea. I use a smidgen, just about less than half a pea. I wet my hands, create a light lather, then start to wash my face (another review suggested this below). The …Read more

Bad. Way too much glitter (I have dry skin, but still don't to look like I applied shimmer powder all over), and highlights every single flake, even ones you didn't know you had. I can't imagine those with oily skin would like the shimmer, and those with drier skin would like the flake-highlighting propertites.

Two stars for its lightweight feel (decent amount of …

Almost returned this! Looked super dry and accentuated every flake on my dry skin. (Why use a powder on dry skin? I have super sensitive, rosacea-afflicted skin, and mineral MU is recommended). I was in a rush to hit work, so I left without removing the mess. By the time I returned home, the makeup looked absolutely perfect and flawless. I'll just try a richer moisturizer from now on. …Read more

LOVE this. Very gentle & non-stripping. Other cleansing oils may feel "greasy" at first, but definitely leave my skin dried out and taut. I have N/D skin and use this when I wear makeup. Removes all MU and grime, without leaving a film or dry, cracked skin. Doesn't irritate my rosacea.

Excellent cleanser. I used to use Herbal Essences Fresh Foam Facial Cleanser, until they discontinued it. I've used countless bottles of Cetaphil, but always found it a tad harsh/drying, even in the summer. I have tried numerous other cleansers (high end/low end) and have found those to be even worse, even if they're labeled for dry skin. I tried this when my last Cetaphil ran out …Read more

Very impressed with this foundation. I have *very* dry skin, and this does not emphasize my flakes like most foundations do. I bought the Normal/Combination instead of the Dry Skin version, because talc was at the top of that ingredient list. I have pronounced rosacea on my cheeks, and this glides over the redness without looking "heavy." The ingredients don't irritate the …Read more
