Brand Overview

Paula’s Choice Skincare follows up its fatty acid-packed Omega+ Complex Serum with this sister product, a fragrance-free moisturizer that has a lightweight feel but doesn’t skimp on good-for-skin ingredients to soothe normal to dry or dehydrated skin.

Packaged in an opaque plastic bottle with a pump dispenser, Omega+ Complex Moisturizer has a surprising texture; it’s cloud-like description is accurate, which might not be what you would expect from a product that contains so many non-fragrant plant oils. It spreads easily, and absorbs into skin quickly, leaving parched, dehydrated skin feeling instantly moisturized without a heavy or greasy feel.

While the way it feels is important, so too is what’s in the formula, and this moisturizer has the goods. There are of course the advertised omega fatty acids (omegas 3, 6, and 9 specifically), which can help soothe skin, strengthen its barrier, and reduce inflammation– aspects which make this a great choice for skin that’s reddened or sensitive, or even those struggling with breakouts and dry skin.

Serving as supporting players are ceramides that help strengthen skin’s structure, antioxidants for protection against environmental assault (many of them from the plant oils mentioned above), and numerous hydrating ingredients, including skin-plumping sodium hyaluronate and amino acids. The result is a powerhouse moisturizer that can help skin on multiple levels.

If you’ve been trying to find a product to revive dehydrated, stressed-looking skin without a thick or heavy feel, Omega + Complex Moisturizer is exactly what you’ve been looking for!

  • Contains skin-strengthening ceramides and pollution-fighting antioxidants.

Paula's Choice Skincare At-A-Glance

 

Paula's Choice Skincare was established in 1995 when best-selling beauty author and consumer advocate Paula Begoun (known as The Cosmetics Cop) decided to develop her own products.

As a natural evolution of Paula's personal mission to help consumers find the best products for their skin, the line has grown into an extensive range of skincare and makeup products that are formulated to meet the needs of almost every skin type and skin concern imaginable, from acne to wrinkles.

Paulas Choice Skincare relies on published research where available to discover the best ingredients for skin. Stable packaging is another feature of the brand, using innovative, opaque, and air-tight or air-restrictive components that keep antioxidants and other light- and air-sensitive ingredients from breaking down. The line is also 100% fragrance-free.

Disclosure: Paula Begoun is the creator of Beautypedia and founder of Paula's Choice Skincare products. Reviewing thousands of skincare and makeup products over the past 30 years, both on this site and in her best-selling books, Paula's mission has always been to help consumers find the best products possible for their skin. The Beautypedia Team proudly and unequivocally maintains this commitment. In addition, The Beautypedia Team reviews all products using the same rating standards and criteria, whether it is a Paula's Choice product or another brand.

Why are Paula's Choice Skincare products rated highly? The Paula's Choice Skincare Team would not launch a product unless it was worthy of a high rating from The Beautypedia Team. Paula and The Beautypedia Team were researching and reviewing products long before Paula's Choice Skincare ever existed and consumers were constantly requesting a skincare brand that met all of Beautypedias criteria. As a result, The Paula's Choice Skincare Team was created and uses the same research and criteria to formulate Paula's Choice products as The Beautypedia Team uses to review products.
