Most Helpful Positive

Great for oily skin
I usually use the Skinstitut Moisturizer for normal skin however I was having an oily moment for a few weeks so switched over to this product. It has worked wonders for my skin, it moisturizes without being heavy & doesn't leave a residue on my skin. It has a nice matte finish to it & sits great under my makeup.

Most Helpful Criticism

Good but the smell is pretty off putting
I have been enjoying this moisturiser, I am very oily and havnt noticed a dramatic change in that area. But I have been liking this moisturiser in general. The one thing that I can’t stand is the smell, it’s almost like a fishy smell when you apply it? If you are really sensitive smells I wouldn’t recommend.

  2. Love it!

    I love this as it doesn't make my skin feel heavy and I don't get shiny as quickly. However the tube is very small so am having to re-purchase quickly.
  3. Most favourite Moisturiser

    I wear this day and night. Love this nice light feeling on my oily skin. Been using this for over 4 years now.
  4. Great product

    I have combination skin and this moisturiser is the perfect balance.
  5. Great moisturiser

    Bought this for my daughter who has combination skin and she is very happy with the product.
  6. Love this product!

    Lately I've had combination skin, really dry around the hairline but oily everywhere else. This product has been fantastic as its hydrating my skin, especially around the hairline, but keeping my skin oil free. My skin feels fantastic. I love this product! My only issue is the size of the tube. I feel like I'm going through it quite fast, so it would be great if it came in a larger size.

  8. Pretty good

    Perfect for when my skin was very oily and acne prone. Never left my skin feeling greasy and definitely controlled the oil production on my t zone.
  9. Perfect under sunscreen

    I usually have an oily T zone however i can happily use this product under my sun screen and BB cream with no issues!
  10. Nothing amazing - just another moisturiser

    I have oily/combination skin which can be dehydrated at times, This moisturiser applies smooth on the skin and is quickly absorbed. As my skin is dehydrated from water, but is oily, I felt there wasn’t enough moisture for me. Would prefer if it had spf in it. Only a very small tube so was used quickly.
  11. Best Moisteriser for Oily Skin

    I love this moisteriser and I have such oily skin. I have been using this product for 5 years now and would highly recommend it to anyone with the same skin type.
  12. Does the job!

    This is one of the better moisturisers for oily skin I have tried. It goes on easy and smooth and doesn’t feel greasy. My skin is super oily especially in the T-Zone and this does help a little with the shine. Overall it’s a great product.
  13. Good product

    I haven't had any issues with this moisturiser. My only issue would probably be that its quite a small tube!
    You only need a small amount and I mix it day and night with the vitamin c powder. Makes my skin feel and look great after applying it. Also use the SPF underneath but I wait around ten minutes or so before applying to allow the SPF to soak in.
    Has definitely helped with my acne and oily skin!
  14. Made my skin breakout

    This product didn’t work for my skin. It made me breakout but I can be prone to breakouts
  15. Good stuff

    Good everyday moisturizer, leaves my skin a little dry though, but I have combination skin. I've since switched to the original - normal skin and I find it much better.
  16. Feels weird and smells weird

    Having trouble with oiliness since moving to Queensland. This product does not feel nice or smell nice or really work for me. Feels thick. Have tried other things that were a lot lighter and moisturising but not oily. Won’t buy again unfortunately
  17. Didn’t work well for my skin

    I tried this for my breakout prone skin but it didn’t work well. It just made me break out more
  18. Not for me!

    I love Skinstitut products and this is the only one I've ever had an issue with.
    It claims to be for oily skin but I feel like it makes my skin oily. My skin feels good when I first put it on, but then 30 minutes later my skin feels oily and clammy. It's impossible to apply sunscreen as well because i get even oilier skin.
    Also when i try to apply make-up it does not apply smoothly and my skin looks clammy.
    I don't think it's right for my skin, and my skin is not usually that oily!
  19. Great Product

    Bought this because i came off birth control and my skin went from being dry and clear to oily and prone to breakouts, this has definitely helped with my breakouts and doesn't make my skin too oily, i wear this under my makeup
  20. Could be better

    After using other skinstitut products I decided to try one of their moisturisers as a product that would control my oily skin and blemishes during the day. When initially applied the moisturiser is hydrating and a good primer for makeup however, by the end of the day I have oily skin and my makeup is loose.
  21. Good moisturizer but not right for me

    I bought this moisturizer when I first started using skinstitut products and was really happy with it. At the time my skin was combination and quite oily at different times. Using this definitely calmed down my skin and made it clearer. During my pregnancy however (and mid winter) this just didn’t provide enough hydration so I switch it for the ultra moisture version which helped. Overall I like this product and would recommend for oily skin. Has a nice smell and texture and a small amount of the product is all you need each application.
  22. It’s good

    Skin type - combination
    Target areas - congestion, dry patches, dull uneven skin tone

    This moisturiser is good it does its job, it smells nice. It’s not a wow product, no immediate soft skin feeling, and can feel a little heavy at first, but I’m getting results and I’ve adjusted to the feeling. I’m onto my 2nd bottle, it is a small amount compared to the other products in the range in which I’ve maybe used a 1/4 or less. And you do need to use more than a pea size (I use 2 or 3x this) in order to spread around face.. maybe heavy isn’t the right word, just a little filmy at first but does sink in eventually. It hydrates really well after some of the other drying products and really locks in the serum. Will repurchase this whole range as I’m really seeing results with the skinstitut products

  23. Seems good

    I got a sample of this and gave it to a friend. They love it and have already bought a full size.
  24. Great for oily acne prone skin

    I have now been using this product for 2 years. It is moisturizing, it leaves my skin feeling smooth and fresh but never leaves my skin feeling oily like it does with others I have tried. Will never use anything else again.
  25. Okay product

    This product delivers on hydration for a few hours. My skin is combination sensitive, but unfortunately I felt oily after a few hours of applying.
  26. Oily skin wonder !!!

    So moisturising but not oily. Will never use another moisturiser. Highly recommend.
  27. Love this cream!! Excellent for combating my acne problem :)

    My skin is the type that always breaks out when using grocery store bought skin products as I seem to have bad reactions to products which contain a lot of unnecessary added smells or harsh scratchy chemicals but Skinstitut is very kind to my sensitive skin and even if I went to bed feeling like I’d added a breakout of acne to my skin after a long day but then after using this cream overnight it’s like a miracle happens, I absolutely love it and I would recommend it to anyone seeking a solution to combating there acne problem, as it’s always worked a treat at deleting any breakouts from the previous day overnight :) :)
  28. Love it!

    Absolutely love this product. It's perfect for oily skin
  29. Great moisturiser

    A little goes a long way with this cream. It leaves my skin feeling hydrated but helps combat oil and I feel my makeup doesn't need touch up until mid afternoon now whereas before it would only go a few hours before going shiny.
  30. Does the trick!

    This product is great for my oily skin and really leaves me feeling hydrated and moisturised. It's so smooth and definitely a new favourite.
  31. Must give it a try!!! (If you dont mind the smell)

    My only complaint has to be the smell of this, at first it smells fruity fresh but after a few seconds you applied onto your face, it smells fishy to me. It doesnt prolong throughout the day but it's such a bummer when you smell this in the morning.

    Have been using it since day 1 i got this and now i finished my first one already in around 2 months.

    Does the job, sits well under make up which is very important for me and it doesnt dry up on my dryer areas!!!

    I have really bad acne prone combination skin and always have trouble with moisturisers that no matter how moisturised they are at the first place, they will eventually give me dry patches around my mouth but this one doesnt do that.

    Time to restock woohoo!
  32. Great for oily/acne prone

    This moisturiser is nice for when my skin is feeling oily or I'm experiencing some breakouts. This moisturiser doubles as my primer as it feels really nice under makeup
  33. Good value for money

    I have combination/acne prone skin so it’s difficult to find any moisturiser that doesn’t flare up my face. The bottle is small, but a little product goes a long way. I find that I still get a little bit of greasiness after using, however it’s better than any other moisturiser I’ve used so far and is better value for money.
  34. Perfect Moisturiser

    I have normal/combination skin and this moisturiser is perfect for me (the normal version was a little too 'greasy'). My beauty therapist recommended this brand and the products work great in conjunction with one another. I would definitely recommend this product for anyone with normal to oily skin.
  35. Love this product

    I had such trouble with my skin until my beauty therapist recommend that I use Skinstitut. I haven't looked back since. My skin is combination and I think that this moisturiser is perfect for my skin that is 40+ in age. It absorbs easily into my skin and doesn't feel greasy. I use it morning and evening after cleansing, and incorporate with the retinol at night.
  36. Great Prodcut

    I use this in conjunction with Gentle Cleanser and I LOVE IT! I have oily, very sensitive skin and it's really great with my skin. It is really light and doesn't feel like I need to wipe it off later like other moisturisers have been like on my skin - highly recommended!
  37. Great for oily skin

    My skin is oily and sensitive. This product is great for daytime wear, but I personally use the Normal Skin for night time, especially if using a retinol product with it.
  38. Good for very oily skin

    I have combination skin, leaning towards oily, but this was just too drying for me. I have since switched to the Normal Skin version which is absolutely perfect. So if you have combo skin, I'd suggest going for the Normal Skin version if this one isn't hydrating enough. Great to mix with rosehip oil or the Skinstitut Repair Balm if you're seeking even more hydration.
  39. Love this, worth the buy

    i have normal to oily skin so i cater for the oily side more as it dominates by the end of the day. i use this in the morning and night as part of my skin care routine. keeps my face looking dewy, very youthful and fresh! if you have acne or extremely oily skin, i would suggest that you use a few other products as well to combat your problem, this is just to keep your skin moisturized (maybe try using a glycolic scrub Retinol serum prior to putting this on).
  40. Best moisturiser

    I loooove this moisturiser for my sensitive skin. I use this along with the L-Lactic cleanser and they go very well with each other.
    I don't breakout from this and provides me with good moisture when my skin gets dry.
  41. Perfect

    My skin is oily and often produces a lot of acne, this cream is nice and light on my face. It also doesn't add to the oil that my face produces, would highly recommend for anyone who's skin is oily and wants a cream that helps
  42. Nice texture

    This is awesome is you are prone to oily skin - not heavy to sticky on the skin but nice and hydrating!
  43. Great stuff

    Skinstitut's skincare line often contain ingredients you don't see anywhere else. I've never seen Pistacia Vera Seed Oil (from pistachios!) as the main ingredient of a moisturiser before! And to have pistachio oil in a moisturiser designed for oily skin is a bit mind-blowing. Nevertheless, it works. I still haven't put this on my t-zone area - as I'm just too afraid to clog my pores - but it was an effective moisturiser for my combo-oily skin.
  44. A must have

    This is the best face moisturizer I have come across and I'm in love. I have always struggled to trust in moisturizers that wont clog my pores or make my face too oily. I use it morning and night after cleansing my face and it helps to make my skin feel very healthy. Perfect under make up as well.
  45. Skinstitut is great

    This moisturiser is excellent as a top layer to my daily routine, prior to putting on primer and make up. Using this product in conjunction with even blend serum or retinol works wonders. I have also used it with just a cleanser and works well too.
  46. Amazing

    Amazing moisturiser! I have very very oily and acne prone skin and many other moisturisers make my skin even oiler half way through the day but not this one! This one seems to be able to balance my oil perfectly! Also has not caused any breakouts. Will always use this as my moisturiser.
  47. Disappointed

    For the price of this product I was definitely expecting something more, but I was quite disappointed. It’s essentially just a really bad smelling standard moisturiser. I have a very oily t-zone and this moisturiser has just made that area more oily. It works well on my cheeks where I’m not really oily, but I don’t think I’ll be putting it anywhere near my oily sections again.
  48. amazing

    definitely my new fav go to moisturiser, great for oily skin and helps control the shine so well!
  49. Great for day time

    I love that this does not make you oily but still manages to hydrate your skin!

    I can wear this under makeup without any issues.
  50. Good moisturiser for sensitive spotty skin

    I have hormonal breakouts and dry skin so a moisturiser that can hydrate without being too heavy is so important. This is lightweight and feels lovely on the skin without clogging my pores or breaking me out. Compared to the cleansers and scrubs I found the size of this product smaller than I expected but still worth the price as I think it's important to use a whole range of one brand. I'm also using the lactic cleanser, glycolic scrub and even blend serum which is working for my hormonal and sometimes sensitive skin.
  51. Skinstitut Fan

    I love Skinstitut products and how they make my skin look and feel. When using the products together they make a huge difference. This moisturiser helps my skin stay shine free without feeling dry.
  52. Lightweight moisturiser - good for sensitive skin

    I have really sensitive skin and am prone to breakouts and eczema when products are too harsh. Happy to say this did not cause either! Good daily moisturiser
  53. Love it!

    I love this product! It hydrates my skin without breaking it out. I use it about 2-3 times a day. I've seen dramatic improvement in my skin (I suffer from stage 2 acne) since using skinstitut skincare line
  54. Great Product

    Love this product.
    When used correctly with the other products this is great for my Oily skin :)
    It doesn't smell like flowers, but i love that its not heavily fragranced.
  55. Way too expensive for a basic moituriser

    This product is nothing special. I've tried similar products for much cheaper. Plus the smell is not at all pleasant. Luckily, my SPF covered the scent in the mornings, but at night I had to put on facial oil on top of the cream because of its lingering smell. I don't know how to describe the scent, but I didn't care for it at all.

    Bottom line: not worth the $30 for only 50ml. my Nivea basically does the same thing at a fraction of the price.
