About The Brand
Pai founder Sarah Brown has firsthand experience with sensitive skin–and her own frustrations inspired her to launch this London-based line of products specifically formulated for sensitive skin. Pai takes its name from the Maori word for “goodness,” and every product reflects that ethos with gentle, calming and high performing ingredients.
Smells like paint
I love Pai products – particularly their cleanser (can’t remember all the new, confusing names; sorry!) – and so I had high hopes for this moisturizer. It is what others say: lightweight (2 pumps really IS too much!), calming, but the SMELL – ugh! I’ve read the other reviews here and they use terms like, “heavenly”, “subtle lavender”, etc, and I wondered,”what did I get? It doesn’t smell anything like lavender” – and it’s certainly not heavenly – but when I saw someone say “great, if you like chamomile” I realized that’s probably the source. Super-concentrated chamomile, which I’m sure is a key ingredient in terms of the calming properties, but to me it smells like paint. Someone here mentioned adding a few drops of rose hip oil, and I’ll bet that’s a good idea.
Clean Moisturizer That Actually Works!
I have extremly dry/sensitive/reactive skin. After using all the wrong products and compromising my skin barrier, I looked to Follain for clean skincare to help my skin heal. WOW am I glad I did! I noticed the benefits of this moisturizer from the first time I used it. No irration, reaction break out, or burning! I use every AM and am left with skin that not only feels hydrated and calmed, but looks it too! My skin feels bouncy, my skintone is even, and the hyrdation lasts all day.
Great product! Greener packaging, please!
I love this product. Its the perfect weight – moisturizing but not heavy. I’m not crazy about the bottle. You can’t open it up and swipe out the last bits – a small quibble that also makes me quiestion recyclability? If you can’t separate the plastic top from the glass lower part, will that glass be recycled if you put it in the recycling stream?
working wonders on redness
I was looking for something to help calm some redness I’ve been experiencing (in part from pregnancy hormones) and within a few uses I’ve noticed a nice change! you don’t need much product to cover your face – 1 pump – and I’ve been using it at night.
I can’t believe it took me 26 years of life to find this moisturizer, but I’m so glad I finally have! I have roseacea and extremely sensitive skin. In the winter in New York my face would get bright red, hot, and so dry the second I walked inside from the cold. But because of the calming ingredients in this moisturizer, my face feels COOL when I walk inside and I don’t need to reapply moisturizer 3+ times a day. It also has a nice texture, a lovely natural fragrance, and comes in an easy pump dispenser.
worth every penny!
I walked into the store, the associate need exactly what I needed, and I am on my second bottles of calming creme and roaehip oil! it has completely transformed my aging skin. cannot live without these two products! started my daughter in them as well! Thank you, Follain! And Pai!
I like the creamy, thicker texture. It keeps me moisturized all day. I’m not a fan of the scent but it goes away very quickly.
I actually use this as a night cream, and it really helps calm my easily irritated skin. It’s pretty lightweight and doesn’t feel like it’s weighing my skin down. Would recommend!
The texture is light weight but it immediately quenches and soothes my combination skin. I use the moisturizer in the morning under my foundation. It is delicate around the eyes and has a calming and luxurious subtle scent of lavender. I love that it adds just the perfect faint amount of glow to my complexion. My skin still feels hydrated at the end of the day!
I have extremely sensitive skin and suffer from rosacea. This is the best moisturizer I have used so far. It does not irritate or break my skin out at all and I feel like it is super hydrating but still light weight. I have tried hundreds and I mean hundreds of other high end moisturizers and nothing comes close to this for me. Totally worth the price and the packaging is amazing as well. Go get yourself a bottle!
I like this cream, but I’m not wow about it. I feel like I might try a different one when I’m done with it, but would also consider getting it again. I guess I’m just not a big fan of the chamomile smell…
Works amazing with my sensitive skin!
I’ve tried many different products but love how light- but still moisturizing this product is! My skin is very reactive to certain products and this has been the best go to moisturizer I’ve found. Totally worth the cost in my opinion. Ready to purchase my third bottle:)
I’ve been looking for a moisturizer that hydrates, lifts and evens out my skin. This one does all that and more. Love it!
My most favorite new Follain discovery!
This is a miracle cream. I have very sensitive skin that sometimes suffers from minor breakouts, brown spots, and inflammation, and I’ve seen a marked difference in my skin even after 1 week of daily use. It smells heavenly and comforting, and my skin appears brighter, more even, less red in certain spots, and softer! Fortunately it also helps with preventing my skin from getting too oily as the day goes on, which I’ve experienced with other moisturizers. This one melts right in and is so silky and velvety…absolutely amazing!! It’s the product I wanted and needed and craved and didn’t realize existed…and it’s basically perfection!
Pai saved my life. My hormones have been wreaking havoc on my skin in interesting ways. This summer I wasn’t having significant breakouts, but my skin was red, inflamed, painful, dry and puffy and I was desperate. I tried Pai and I’m never looking back. The effects were almost instant.
Love love love
My skin is both dry and flakey and prone to breakouts/enlarged pores, this cream has been fantastic. My dryness is gone because this product is incredibly moisturizing, yet I’m not experiencing any clogged pores. And bonus, it smells really nice.
Soothes red skin
I have dry, reactive skin that’s easily irritated. This moisturizer calms my skin and evens out any redness. My skin feels super soft afterwards but I usually have to do two layers but this is the only moisturizer that calms my skin so its a fair trade off.
Great moisturizer, slightly oily
I really like this moisturizer but it feels a little heavy and oily on my skin. I also wish it had SPF.
This product calms my rosacea. I use it at night after cleansing with the Pai Camellia & Rose Gentle Hydrating Cleanser.
Sensitive Skin Game Changer
This moisturizer is THE BEST. I usually get really red in the mornings, and this stuff just calms my skin right down. It helps that it is super moisturizing without being heavy AND it smells delish (if you like chamomile tea). I love this stuff!
Perfect for dry / sensitive skin
This day cream is so lightweight and soothing for dry / sensitive skin. It is light enough to wear under sunscreen if you like me need extra moisture, but hydrating enough to keep skin from flaking and looking red/irritated. I highly recommend it!
Love this moisturizer
I recently tried this moisturizer and love it! It is super hydrating without feeling heavy or greasy, and doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin at all. It goes on nicely and layers well. I’ve used Osea Blemish Balm and Ursa Major Golden Hour Recovery Cream and like those as well, but I think this is my new go-to.
Best face lotion I have ever found.
Game changer. Absolutely love this cream. I have extremely sensitive skin and this is so gentle and smells amazing.
sensitive skin and I love the aroma!
I LOVE this cream. My cheeks can be very red and rosy and this cream calms things down pretty well so far. (I haven’t noticed a redness disappearing act but I’m not getting more red like some products can do) As a plus, I absolutely LOVE the aroma. It smells just like a floral herbal tea!
Great for rosacea
Calming for my skin
Lovely, but a bit too much scent for me
I really liked this lotion, but it was a bit too much scent for me. It’s not overwhelming, but I don’t really like much of any scent on my face. It also wasn’t quite moisturizing enough for what I was looking for, but it makes a good regular moisturizer.
Excellent for price point
I used this as my daily lotion for about 6 months before the bottle ran out. Wore great under makeup but didn’t look too shiny or greasy if worn alone. Has a nice strong smell, if you like the smell of chamomile its wonderful. The only reason I won’t purchase another bottle is because it doesn’t contain SPF.
Nice and light for daytime
A great moisturizer for the day–never made me greasy or made my makeup smudge. I think I’d like something a little more moisturizing for winter, but this handled muggy summer days just fine. I have really dry skin.
Perfect light weight and calming
When I feel like my skin is going a little crazy, I do a little scrub and follow after with this lightweight moisturizer. I make sure to mix it with a few drops of the Pai Rosehip oil.
Love for summer!
I have very dry skin, so I was surprised that something so lightweight did the trick. Love the smell and feel, but wish it absorbed a little faster. Overall, love this product for summer, but wonder if it’ll be enough for winter. Stay tuned…!
Amazing for rosacea!
This moisturizer is a miracle worker – immediately reduced my redness!
