So hydrated


Love this products makes my skin feel so hydrated and fresh the Glycolic Acid is such a great ingredient

Most Helpful Criticism

Love the concept


I love the concept of this product. I've never heard of a product like this. Perfect way to lock in moisture. I just wish it wasnt so dear.
  1. pills under sunscreen /makeup


    I have tried this moisturiser for 2 weeks and unfortunately it doesn't work for me. 1 - it pills under sunscreen or makeup - none of my other moisturiser does this and I'm surprised no one else mentioned it. 2) my skin got very bumpy while I was using this. Once I stopped using the moisturiser and used other products to treat the bumps, my skin looks better again. 3 ) it doesn't keep my face shine...

  2. Great day moisturiser


    I received a 5ml sample of this product and was surprised by the light texture and slight citrus scent. The moisturiser is quickly absorbed by the skin and sits perfectly under make up with piling. I'd recommend as a great day time moisturiser underneath your favourite SPF.
  3. Great for summer


    Got this as a sample and just as described it is lightly moisturising and matte. Perfect for summer under makeup but not moisturising enough for me during winter.
  4. So hydrated


    Love this products makes my skin feel so hydrated and fresh the Glycolic Acid is such a great ingredient
  5. favourite moisturiser


    verified purchaser
    This is the best moisturiser I have ever used. Less breakouts, skin was glowing. However it is really expensive for a moisturiser. I would also recommend not to use the glycolic acid activator if you are using retinol. I found it was more effective to alternate uses.
  6. LOVE


    So lightweight and moisturising. I never really used the glycolic acid, only on rare occasions, I found it irritated my skin but as for the moisturiser I will never turn back. Perfect for my oily skin!
  7. Good light moisturiser, wish it didn't have citrus oil


    The texture of this moisturiser is very light and mattifying, and sits well under makeup. It is only very lightly moisturising, and I think will be perfect for summer but is not enough in winter or when my skin is dry from retinoids. My major criticism of this product is that it has orange oil for fragrance which can be very irritating and my skin certainly stings when I apply this if I'm a bit dr...

  8. work in perfect harmony


    I love that this is 2 in 1. the moisturiser has niacinamide and the added glycolic acid serum. I use the glycolic acid on rotation with my medik8 retinol. my skin is left hydrated and matte with the added bonus of chemical exfoliation.
  9. Great oil free base for acne prone skin


    I have acne prone skin and see a dermal therapist for treating my breakouts, she recommended this for me as an oil free moisturiser option. I use this day and night after the medik8 break out defense. This is a great base under make up as well. My only criticism is that it is definitely on the pricier side and for that I would prefer that it lasts longer but I find I need to purchase a new one eve...

  10. Best product to date for acne


    Before purchasing I needed a light weight moisturiser. Read all the reviews on this. Sounded to good to be true. But after using it..it does everything it says it will. Lightweight and oil free. Makes skin feel amazing
  11. Love this product combo


    I'm a huge Medik8 fan - their formulas and ingredients are super high quality. This product combo is no exception. This is a great moisturiser that would suit any skin type - probably even more than their vitamin c one! Love the inclusion of the glycolic acid activator - I use it in the evenings when my skin is looking a little dull. Would definitely recommend.
  12. Recommend


    Initially started using this as recommended by my skin technician and I haven't looked back. Mattifying to my skin. Occasionally I need to top up moisture with an additional cream or serum.
  13. Great summer moisturiser


    I need something stronger in winter but this has been my go to moisturiser this summer. Love the glycolic acid combo. Doesn't feel too thick or block pores but it hydrates sufficiently and leaves my skin feeling fresh and able to breath still. I feel like this would be great for those with truly oily skin all year round.
  14. Oily-skin Saver


    LOVE this moisturiser! It is so hydrating and leaves a slight sheer healthy glow. A must-have for people with oily skin!
  15. Should’ve purchased it sooner!


    This is the most amazing moisturiser I’ve ever used! I have combination/oily skin and this is the first moisturiser I’ve used that doesn’t make me more oily! Would highly recommend! It has the nicest fruity smell too!
  16. great product


    Nice light moisturiser and the glycolic acid works to dry pimples out when you use it as a pot teatment.
  17. fave


    the perfect pair. love these
  18. Good!


    I have “normal skin”, so this was recommended to me by a skin clinic. Great moisturiser for the day: leaves face matte, dry to touch, natural citrus fragrance. For this reason I wouldn’t use it at night, I prefer something more hydrating. Also, avoid under eyes.
  19. Hydrated and Matte!


    This is the perfect sunscreen for oily combination skin. I experience hormonal breakouts along my chin with dry patches on my forehead and have not found a more suitable and balancing moisturiser than this one. A must have for breakout prone skin!
  20. Matte look and face less shiny


    The Medik8 moisturiser gives me a matte finish look after applying it on my face. My face also feels smooth and not oily at all after applying it on. It manages to control and reduce the excess sebum of my face. The glycolic acid activator is also a very good product for reducing my acne as I use the acid on my pimples overnight and the size of my pimple reduces. I definitely recommend this produc...

  21. Great!


    This moisturiser is so good and love how it has glycolic acid in it too. Makes my skin o soft.
  22. Great!


    Such a must have for those with problematic skin! Very hydrating and it doesn’t leave my skin feeling tight!
  23. Perfect for combination skin


    I love this moisturiser it really helps with keeping my shine under control.

    It’s lovely and light and works great under make up.

    The activator is a great addition to use following a mask or exfoliating.

    One negative is the price. I wish it Wasn’t so expensive.
  24. Love


    Since using this product for over a year after repeated hormonal breakouts I will not use any other brand moisturiser on my skin. I have combination dry/oily skin and this moisturiser literally balances out my skin to provide moisture but also tone down the oil production. Used alongside the Medik8 clarifying foam and Hydr8 serum.
  25. love


    Very well priced for such an effective product, will be repurchasing! Really helped to even out my skin texture.
  26. Its Good but not perfect


    I read the description of this prduct duo and thought I had to have it. After using it for a couple of days, I noticed my skin was just as oily as it was before buying this. However the Glycolic acid is meant to be used as a night time regime. In saying that, my skin looks matte and perfect?
    I would use it during the day but have read that it isnt ideal to wear when the sun is out.

  27. A little goes a long way!


    This product is like a two for one deal, as it comes with the glycolic acid activator. I am well and truly hooked on this moisturiser- only need to use a pea sized amount and it’s hydrating, absorbs into the skin beautifully plus doesn’t cause my acne prone skin to breakout.
  28. Mattifying moisturiser


    I love that this product is so light and keeps my oily/combination skin from becoming oily throughout the day. The glycolic acid activator is a great add-on to keeping blemishes away while also conditioning the skin. My skin feels smooth and my breakouts have minimised. Great product - would definitely recommend!
  29. My new favorite moisturizer!!


    This was my first time trying Medik8 products and I was blown away by both the Balance Moisturiser and Glycolic Acid Activator. I have oily/combination skin and the Balance Moisturiser has been ideal, my skin still feels well hydrated and remains matte towards the end of the day. The Glycolic Activator makes such a great base for this product!
    I would definitely recommend and do hope to kee...

  30. A must have in my routine


    I use this moisturiser on my combination skin year around. The first I’ve found that perfectly mattifies and hydrates. Never makes me breakout and smells divine.
  31. Staple in my beauty regime


    I’ll be honest, when I first started using this product the scent really turned me off & I didn’t know if I’d be able to stick with using it. I’ve put it down to the pro & pre biotics that are in it. It has however grown on me & I love how it leaves my skin looking & feeling. So stick with it!
  32. 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!
  33. Worth the Splurge


    I suffer from an oily T-zone so my beauty therapist recommended this product. After using it for roughly 1 month, my oiliness was under much better control, I didn't even have to pack translucent powder in my bag on a night out anymore (unheard of!).

    My skin was so good in fact I stupidly decided I would get a different kind of moisturiser after I finished the tube and wouldn't you k...

    This made my skin glow and feel amazing.
  35. Love the concept


    I love the concept of this product. I've never heard of a product like this. Perfect way to lock in moisture. I just wish it wasnt so dear.
  36. Expensive but worth it


    This has been amazing for my combination skin! It goes on super lightweight and works really well under make up. During the warm summer months I've noticed my skin gets less oily during the day when I use this first. The Glycolic Acid Activator makes your skin look super fresh the day after using it at night. My skin is prone to breaking out but using this has definitely helped. You don't need muc...

  37. Definitely recommend


    I love this moisturiser - it’s a bit pricey but worth it, and considering you only need a small amount it lasts awhile. It’s very hydrating but doesn’t make my skin oily and it absorbs really nicely. Definitely worth it!
  38. Hydration + Mattifying in One


    This product is an absolute must for anyone with oily, acne-prone skin, Since starting to use this product four years ago, I have no longer have severe breakouts, and although the odd spot arrives it is smaller and less 'angry' and generally resolves quicker. It is light gel-like consistency, a little goes a long way and absorbs quickly without leaving any sticky residue. When I first stared using...

  39. Great prevention

    Emily Jane

    I have only started using this recently during the evenings, I find the acid is the perfect strength - I don't wake up with additional "purge" break outs. The moisturiser is quite light, hydrating and I also don't wake up with oily skin in the mornings. I prefer the 360 with SPF for everyday wear, but this is good for evenings.
  40. Great for acne prone skin


    I love this moisterizer.
    It is on the pricier side of moisterizers but i find it worth it for me.
    i have struggled with acne since before i can remember and this keeps them at bay and doesnt make me oily.
  41. Love it!


    Love this moisturiser have been using it for the last 7 months and it keeps my hormonal breakouts at bay. Highly recommend the medik8 brand love all of there products.
  42. The best!


    my sister has tried EVERYTHING!!! This product has been fantastic in reducing redness, lightweight and non clogging, leaving a matt finish no shiny face! She has struggled for 20 years with acne and used every product under the sun. This product is her favourite control product yet.
