Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

Formulated with hydration-boosting hyaluronic acid, skin-soothing niacinamide as well as peptides, it works overnight to calm irritated skin and repair skin's natural barrier. Its non-greasy, fragrance-free formula makes it suitable for both oily and sensitive skin types.
- Forbes
If you have sensitive skin and are in need of a great simple moisturizer I think you may like this.
The moisturizer contains beneficial ingredients such as hydrating hyaluronic acid, barrier-strengthening ceramides, brightening and soothing niacinamide alongside silicones that help create a layer on the surface of the skin and slow down transepidermal water loss and fatty alcohols to help soften dehydrated, rough, and sensitive skin.

What reviewers didn't like

With this, I feel my skin isn’t nourished enough and when that happens, my texture shows up quite visible.
The moisturizer, although non-comedogenic, is quite heavy, which is why oily skins should use it with caution or at least as an evening treatment to get the most benefits out of it.
