Why is it different?

Calm Repairing Sensitive Serum blends skin-replenishing and potent anti-aging ingredients along with antioxidant-enriched plant extracts that research has shown to be among the most soothing for temperamental skin. It leaves skin superbly soft, hydrated, and calmed, allowing skin to renew and rejuvenate.

All Paula’s Choice products are 100% fragrance free, clinically proven to be non-irritating, and never tested on animals.

What does it do?

Immediately soothes sensitive skin and calms redness with gentle but potent antioxidant plant extracts, skin-replenishing ingredients, and the most effective combination of hydrating and skin-calming essentials. Nourishing for all skin types and gentle enough even for skin prone to rosacea.

How to use?

Smooth a few drops onto face, neck and eye area before moisturizing (or use alone). For optimal results, use AM and PM. For daytime, follow with a broad-spectrum sunscreen rated SPF 30 or greater.

FAQ

The CALM Repairing Serum is in different packaging. Is it a new formula as well?
Although the formula hasn’t changed from the one you know and love, new regulatory requirements and an audit of the previous ingredient list revealed some changes were necessary to the original order of ingredients and the ingredient list became longer. The regulatory requirement comes from the European Union and means we’re now listing what’s referred to as “incidental ingredients”. Incidental ingredients are cosmetic ingredients used as part of a blend to preserve or stabilize key ingredients; however, once added to a cosmetic formula, they have no effect since the amounts are vanishingly low. The incidental ingredients in this serum were always present. They weren’t listed previously since most markets do not require this (again, this is due to the amounts of such ingredients being too low to have an impact on the formula or your skin). We apologize for the confusion and are happy to assure you the formula truly remains the same.
<br><br>
How does the CALM Repairing Serum differ from other Paula's Choice serums?
The CALM Repairing Serum is specifically formulated for those with persistent redness and/or extra-sensitive skin. Its mix of skin-replenishers, soothing antioxidants and barrier-strengthening ingredients were chosen for their gentleness and ability to reduce reactivity now and in the future. The formula is suitable for all skin types, including those prone to breakouts, rosacea and eczema.
<br><br>
Where in my routine do I use the CALM Repairing Serum?
The CALM Repairing Serum can be applied after cleansing, toning and exfoliating (if applicable). If using other boosters, serums or treatments, apply in order from thinnest to thickest. For daytime, be sure to always follow with a broad-spectrum sunscreen SPF 30+.
How long will it take to see an improvement for my red skin when using the CALM Repairing Serum?
It depends on the cause of your redness and skin health, but most people will see redness relief within a few hours of applying the CALM Repairing Serum. Ongoing use will continue to improve these initial results, especially if your entire skin care routine is gentle, fragrance-free and you’re good about applying sunscreen every day.
<br><br>
Can I use CALM Repairing Serum if I don't have red or irritated skin?
Absolutely! In fact, the combination of soothing and skin-restoring ingredients plus nourishing gentle, non-fragrant plant extracts are a great option for all skin types.
<br><br>
Can I use the CALM Repairing Serum if I have acne, blemish-prone skin and/or post-blemish marks?
Yes, the anti-irritants, ceramides and soothing agents in the CALM Repairing Serum are suitable for those with blemish-prone skin and post-blemish marks. This serum will also help reduce flaky skin due to anti-acne treatments. The CALM Repairing Serum is also a great option to use with our CLEAR anti-acne collection, as its super-light texture feels weightless (never greasy) and it layers well with each product. Remember to apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen SPF 30+ to protect skin and prevent post-blemish marks from getting worse.
<br><br>
Can I use the CALM Repairing Serum with topical medications for rosacea?
Yes, the CALM Repairing Serum works with any topical prescription medications for managing symptoms of rosacea. You may apply this serum before or after your topical prescription, or as directed by your doctor.
