I got a sample of it and used it.. it is so light on the skin yet so hydrating. I have oily t zone but this didn’t break me out at all. I use it mostly at night

Most Helpful Criticism



Unfortunately, I do not like the smell of this product. The scent is too strong for my liking. I also don't like how thick it is & was trying to use it all up so I could purchase something different. Will not be buying again.

  2. Nope


    I received this cream as a sample. It is strongly scented and the fragrance is not a nice one. I put it on my face and regretted it immediately. It stung my face and I woke up with red cheeks. I don't rate Aesop products, this one is no different. I will use it as a hand cream so it doesn't go to waste.
  3. A bit too thick for daytime use

    Gretchen Shirm

    I have oilyish skin and I found this a bit too thick for my skin. I liked the scent though and it would probably be great for dry skin.
  4. Aesop Camellia Nut Facial Hydrating Cream 120ml


    I bought this little tub of goodness a few weeks ago, based on the reviews and what it said it would do, AND BOY DID IT! My poor hayfever scarred skin is now happy and ready for Christmas, refreshed and beautiful! I really love that its a tub, but the fact you can push down on the inside lid and get a perfect amount is awesome! I feel like I'm not wasting product.
  5. gorgeous


    I've only tried a sample of this because of the price but wow! It is super hydrating yet so light on my face. No flaky skin or dry patches
  6. Love it


    Love this beautiful, hydrating cream! Smooths on well and leaves skin feeling fresh and hydrated all day.
  7. Nice and light


    It was nice and light on my face. Made my face feel so smooth and soft wasn’t heavy at all for my bit oilly skin.great under foundation too
  8. Good


    feels so soft and hydrated after using
  9. Lush Moisturiser


    Love this!! Makes your skin feel so cared for and feels so lush to put it on.
  10. Very good smelling cream!!!


    The smell is just amazing that I think it can heal my skin and make it feel so comfotable!!!
  11. An incredible smelling cream


    One of my favourite Aesop products. It is a very thick paste that hydrates quickly. Love it
  12. best moisturiser ever!


    After I had this bought for me as a birthday present I have continued buying it! the most beautiful scent and a perfect consistency (a little goes a long way)! I have normal/dry skin and have found this moisturiser to be absolutely perfect. A little expensive however, it lasted me from July until April this year! So worth it
  13. Love it


    This facial cream is super rich And nurturing your skin. Only recommend to dry mature skin type. Overall it’s a good moisturizer who does it job.
  14. Underwhelming


    Unfortunately, I do not like the smell of this product. The scent is too strong for my liking. I also don't like how thick it is & was trying to use it all up so I could purchase something different. Will not be buying again.
  15. Great cream but not enough hydration


    While this cream is amazing for sensitive skin (non aggravating), it didn't provide enough hydration for me. I had to use it with a serum to give me enough moisture to get through the day. There are also mixed views on the smell, but I think it's quite nice and refreshing.
  16. great for dry skin


    a lovely mosituriser, works well on dry prone skin, would not recommend for oily skin.
  17. nice and cheap


    nice and cheap, suitable for student
  18. Great hydrating cream


    This cream smelt great and was nice and light of my skin. I have sensitive skin and it didn't irritate it at all. Like all Aesop products it has that lovely smell. I received it as a free sample as part of purchase. I'm not sure it is worth the price though.
  19. Not bad


    Received as a sample. Nice and lightweight. Absorbed fast. The reason for the low score is I personally don’t care for the scent. I would only not repurchase based on the scent but the texture and absorption is great.
  20. Nice and moisturising


    This feels and smells beautiful on the skin, especially when you need a bit of extra moisture, but I’m not sure of the long term impacts it has on the overall appearance of skin.
  21. Thick & nourishing


    Smells amazing, slightly herbal but minty! Thick & nourishing, really enjoy this 10/10
  22. Super rich


    I recently bought this after trying the sample and loving it. It's really thick and rich without being greasy. Perfect for winter when my skin gets a bit drier. A little expensive but the big jar lasts a long time.
    anddd it smells amazing :)
  23. Too perfumed for me


    Nice and hydrating - absorbs well and leaves skin feeling lovely, however it is far too strongly scented for me and makes me feel nauseous. It also feels a bit too heavy for my oily skin and was more suitable as a night cream for me, rather than a day cream.
  24. Smells great


    I love the smell of this cream although found it a bit too heavy for my skin
  25. The smell is to die for


    I use this cream when I am doing a mini facial once or twice a week. The cream feels so luxurious and your skin feels so comforted. Suited to winter/ dry weather. The smell is to die for also.
  26. a beautiful face cream


    This is a beautiful daily face cream I have been purchasing for years. I have dry skin that is ageing slightly (I am over 40) and I find this cream is nourishing, yet not greasy. I use it in the morning after cleansing and it is absorbed quickly, and I can put my foundation over the top straight away. The scent is gentle and pleasant, definitely not strong. The large jar lasts an incredibly lo...

  27. Leaves my skin tone amazing!!


    I love love love this product!!
    My skin was having issues with being congested and my skin tone was so blotchy....one night of this cream and wow! The next day I looked so radiant.
  28. good smell


    receive a sample of it, This is a fabulously light and yet moisturizing cream that keeps my skin looking supple and healthy. not sure long time using efficacy
  29. Great


    I honestly love nearly everything I’ve ever had from Aesop. This moisturiser is a little heavier and greasier than I usually like but it applies and absorbs so beautifully that I can deal with it. My 44 year old skin is soft and supple afterward.
  30. Beautiful smell and texture


    I love this moisturiser for night time. It smells divine and is a lovely light-weight texture which I love. It's a bit pricey so its not something I repurchase frequently.
  31. Beautiful nourishing cream


    I have dry skin and this luxurious and nourishing cream sinks in quickly, so although thick is not greasy. It is expensive , but a large jar and lasts well and smells great.
  32. All time favourite


    This is hands down the best moisturiser for my dry, red, sensitive, flaky, bumpy skin. I would describe the texture as medium to thick and luxurious. The scent is light and beautiful. I’ve always found my skin would always feel tight and dry by the afternoon, but not whole I’m using this. And you only need a small amount so a bottle lasts for ages!
  33. Very moisturising


    This cream could be a rival to what I am currently using, you get the lovely scent of sandalwood when applying. I would definitely consider using this as a primary moisturiser
  34. So fresh


    This product is so beautiful. I have dry and sensitive skin and have found it hydrates me without irritation or stinging.
    I also haven’t been able to find another supplier that supplies this product at such a reasonable price.
  35. Delicious


    Smells Devine and is super hydrating! Great gift

    Smells Devine and is super hydrating! Great gift
  37. Super Hydrating


    I continue to buy this product because it’s so hydrating, and smells amazing! I have dry skin, and this moisturiser works well particularly in winter. It’s quite heavy and I wouldn’t recommend it for someone with oily skin or if you like the feeling of a light moisturiser. I personally love it, and the 120ml size lasted me 6 months. Worth the investment!
  38. Hydrating. Nutty. Gentle.


    I received this as a sample in a recent order, and I was pleased to try it, because Aesop is known for it's gentle, natural formulations, and I suffer sensitive skin, so I'm always looking for skin care that is gentle, being natural and cruelty free too is a great added bonus.

    My skin has been on the dry and red side lately so the fact that it was thick and creamy in texture was great...

  39. Alright


    Very nice consistency and feels nice on the skin and hydrates but it breaks me out as well. A bit expensive.
  40. Very rich cream


    This is a good rich moisturising cream if you have dry skin. It really hydrates your skin leaving it soft.
  41. Love it!


    I received a sample of this and I loved it! It has a lovely texture and is perfect for my sometimes sensitive and dry skin. I like that it comes in such a gorgeous jar.
  42. Cream


    Very hydrating cream, sinks into the skin nicely. Not a fan of the jar, I find it slightly unhygienic to be sticking your fingers in over and over without a spatula. However, the packaging does look cute on a vanity
  43. Love it!


    Soo hydrating. My very dry skin just loves this product.
  44. Not for me


    I wanted to love this product because I love the Aesop brand but this product failed me in many ways. Firstly, it’s way too perfumed for my liking. I prefer something with little to no scent. Secondly, it’s very thick and I found that I needed a lot to cover my whole face. Thirdly, and most importantly, it reacted with my skin which can be quite sensitive at times and I got a rash above my eyes. W...

  45. Lovely cream


    I love the smell of this product, I used it in the morning and it sets well under makeup and mixed well with my serums. I didn't leave my skin feeling oily like other hydrating creams.
    Really lovely product
  46. Daily Softness


    Worn under makeup as a heavier daily moisturiser and it did wonders, no flaking or separating of my base makeup either! Scented and smells nutty but that didn't bother me at all .
  47. Great product


    my skin has been a bit dry lately and i've added this into my routine and it looks so much better. use this serum before moisturiser every night and is amazing. Would recommend this
  48. Wonderful@

    Aroma Adict

    Being a fan of EO's, I love the smell of this cream. The Rosemary gives it a clean and herbal smell. Great day cream. Definitely recommend this cream.
  49. Love it!


    I got this for my mum and she loves it! I can see an improvement in her skin texture after using this. This cream eliminates dry, textured skin and replaces it with soft, hydrated skin instead! Very good for mature skin that needs some hydration.
  50. Love love love


    I just switch over to camellia nut from another Aseop Moisturiser and absolutely loving it. I have combination skin, and this keeps my skin perfect all day. no more oiliness or flaky skin
  51. Love it!


    I love this moisturiser, it smells so beautiful and very natural. It is also lasting a really long time. I was looking for something very gentle for my sensitive skin and I find this very calming and hydrating.
  52. Gorgeous!


    I'm a big fan of the Aesop range. I received a sample of this and I loved it! It has a lovely texture and is perfect for my sometimes sensitive and dry skin. I like that it comes in such a gorgous jar and will be purchasing this for sure!
  53. LOVE


    this is such a great product ! worth buying i feel in love with this straight away and lvoe the texture and how it feels on my skin
  54. its creamy


    Look its creamy and really makes your skin look good in the morning. I have oily skin so i cannot use every day or I break out. But its a good one.
  55. Lovely feel on the skin


    Got this as a sample and it soaked right into my skin with no greasy feeling. Unsure if I would repurchase purely because there is SO much more on the market.
  56. very genlte


    Aesop Camellia Nut Facial Hydrating Cream is lovely for sensitive or dry skin types. It is lovely in winter and when the nights are cooler. Your skin will love the extra nourishment, and don't forget your neck!
  57. love


    the scent of this is so nice and it the cream is hydrating but with a matte finish so you're not left looking too shiny
  58. more for combination skin


    My skin in very dry, i didnt hate it but my mum loves it, she have combination skin type. so guess if you have super dry skin like i do this is not the cream, but combination skin type will love it, as i am ordering another one for my mum
  59. Nice


    I like this, my skin is a lot my hydrated than it was before I started using, it absorbs well and does not leave a greasy film, expensive but worth it.
  60. Lovely


    this product is honestly amazing! It nourishes my skin and makes it feel so hydrated and soft! I definitely recommend this product to anyone and everyone, especially if you have dry skin!
  61. Hydrating


    I had a sample of this and it was very hydrating and provided long lasting moisture. Didn't feel greasy and soaked straight into my skin
  62. Great Under Makeup


    I use this under my makeup. As a teacher, I don’t want anything too heavy, given I end up sweating even in the coldest months during playground duties. Light and absorbs straight into the skin, leaving it feeling soft and hydrated. Not too fragrant either.
  63. undecided


    When I first used this, my skin reacted a bit and I got a few spots. Weird because it's meant for sensitive skin types. I've tried it again recently and it's better. I think it's just a bit rich
  64. good cream


    It's meant for sensitive skin and this works well for me but I don't find it hydrating enough. It dries down to a matte finish and absorbs fast. Not really a summer cream, but too light for winter too
  65. Best winter skin save


    This is my winter skin saviour I get so excited to use this product. My skin drinks it and looks so plump and hydrated after use. I always purchase this yearly. The large jar lasts forever too.
  66. Dry skin


    This is good for moisturising dry skin. It keeps my dry flakes at bay all day, and sits well under makeup
  67. Winter Skin Sorted


    I really liked this product to be used as my winter moisturiser, as it packs an extra hydration punch. Really gorgeous ingredients that nourish and hydrate the skin
  68. average


    How many times have I told to myself that I should never ever buy a beauty product without testing and smelling it first yet here I am. It smells awful. I usually like sandalwood smell (when I actually smell the tree), but this is bad.
    I can't get over it, as well as I can't get over the yellowish color.
  69. Beautiful Smell and Hydrating


    I really enjoyed using this product. It left my skin hydrating, smooth and soft. I have yet to find a moisturiser that I love, but this definitely ticks many boxes. Worth the money, and pleasantly surprised to see it didn't aggravate my sensitive and dry skin.
  70. Thick, maybe not best for me


    Lovely smell but find it quite a thick cream to use. I feel like it may not be the best for my skin type
  71. Amazing


    I bought this for my partner. She loves it and her skin has really benefited from it. I will continue to purchase.
  72. My everyday cream


    I use this every day. It's quite thick and it feels like a protective barrier on the skin. My face always feels nice and smooth when I wash it off at the end of the day. I recommend trying it.
  73. Great


    I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by this product. I used to buy La Mer soft cream and it was not as hydrating as this one. This cream keeps my skin moisturised but absorbs quickly and the scent is divine. I will surely buy it again.
  74. Nice face cream, but not the best I've used


    This is a lovely face cream, and smells quite nice. The jar does last a long time. However my skin has become increasing dryer as I've gotten older and this cream isn't hydrating enough for me. If you prefer a thicker moisturiser I would try something else. The cost was an additional reason I wouldn't repurchase, it was quite expensive compared to similar products.
  75. Moisturizing but reactive


    First off, NOT happy with this price increase, it's a heavy jump and as much as I love aesop products, it's way too much. Onto the product, this is meant for sensitive skin but it actually made me break out!
  76. Good for dry skin


    This is nice for dryer skin! I have tried a few in the range and this is up there at the top to try!
  77. Lovely!


    I bought this for my partner. She loves it and her skin has really benefited from it. I will continue to purchase.
  78. Makes me break out!


    This is meant for sensitive skin but it makes me break out! I've tried the other aesop face creams like mandarin, primrose and parsley and had no issues with them, but there must be something in the camellia nut that doesn't agree with my sensitive skin!


    I absolutely love this face cream. I bought on the strength of the reviews here and am so glad I did. My skin really dries out over winter and this offers the perfect balance of rehydration without being too heavy. It absorbs brilliantly into my skin rather than just coating it like some other face creams can. I thoroughly recommend.
  80. Not for my skin


    I got a few samples of this and loved it at first - it's moisturizing but not too heavy and absorbs quickly. I have sensitive, combination skin and after buying a full jar and using it for 2 months, I found that it made my skin break out! I haven't had this issue with any other aesop cream so it must be something, maybe the camellia nut..
  81. Nice moisturiser


    I really liked this product to be used as my winter moisturiser but not summer. However would like if they had some spf added to it as well. Overall good product.
  82. good


    This cream is very moisturizing and suitable for winter. It absorbs quickly. My face is much softer after using this cream.I love it and i will buy it back.
  83. Most nourishing moisturiser ever


    Cannot go wrong with this cream it’s such a dream to use day and night and has made my skin to clear and radiant!
  84. Amazing


    It is very expensive, but worth it, love the smell its amazing and fantastic for re-hydrating my dry skin.
  85. Good for dry skin


    I've been using this lately and it's good for dry skin. The scent isn't too strong and though it's hydrating it doesn't feel greasy and absorbs quickly
  86. Great


    I find this cream really good for my skin, I would highly recommend it, in fact I would highly recommend Aesop products. Since I discovered them. I have only used them.
  87. Good but expensive


    This is a great moisturiser and i use it religiously. It works well with my dry and sensitive skin and provides a smooth base for makeup though i think it is kind of expensive. The coconut oil used in this product allows for maximum moisture, especially in the winter. I would recommend this product
  88. Beautiful smelling, very hydrating cream.


    I have quite dry skin, and this cream goes on smoothly and leaves my face feeling super soft and hydrated. It smells nice, and I find a little goes a long way. It really lasts forever! I use it as my day cream on my face, neck, and decolletage and find it sinks in well without leaving any stickiness or excess oil. Aesop products are a bit pricey but well worth the expense, in my experience.
  89. Lovely


    I love the smell and feel of this moisturiser- it’s very light and fresh and gentle. Expensive though
  90. Lovely


    Great day time moisturizer, doesn't irritate my sensitive skin. It is light though so i prefer to use something thicker at night.
  91. SO nourishing!


    Lovely as a night cream for my dry and ageing skin. Goes on smoothly for a thick cream and you dont need a large amount to cover the face. I like the subtle scent that quickly disappears. This feels like a treat for my skin.
  92. moisturizing


    It's quite a small jar but the cream is nice and moisturizing for my combination skin and my face feels very soft afterwards.
  93. moisturizing but not enough


    i have dry skin and was recommended to try this. it is hydrating and moisturizing but not enough. if i use it alone, my skin feels better but i have to reapply often and it's not rich enough to be used as a night cream
  94. Amazing but Expensive


    I used this as a sample when I ordered – I was a little worried because the texture appeared greasy and creamy (I have oily, sensitive skin) but it left my face moisturised and soft the next morning. Seems to have restorative properties too. Only four stars though for the expensive price tag!
  95. Love the scent


    Aesop products have such a nice scent. I've tried a few of their face creams and this one is more moisturizing. Makes my skin and soft and smooth
  96. Good for sensitive skin


    Nice hydrating cream that's suitable for sensitive skin. The cream is quite soothing as well
  97. Very Hydrating


    Really nice cream with a gorgeous scent that is hydrating and leaves my skin smooth and soft
  98. Beautiful texture and moisture


    I'm not one for complicated skin care and during my second pregnancy my skin went very dry. Most days I used water or at most a mild cleanser with no need for any other product. I'm also prone to breakouts and have adult acne so I'm very careful and picky with what moisturiser I use.

    I've found the Aesop Camellia Nut Facial Hydrating Cream beautifully soft and provided the required m...

    Smells great and is so smooth and beautiful. I have very dry skin and it keeps me moisturized with just one nightly application
  100. Other people love it!


    This moisturiser is pretty much my worst nightmare - full of things like coconut oil (which blocks my pores) and essential oils which irritate my skin and cause breakouts. However - I am clearly not the person this cream was designed for! My friend has super-dry skin and swears by this - weird jar packaging and all. So, I give a thumbs' up for her and a thumbs' down for me... averaging out at 3 st...
