Great for oily acne prone skin - 04-10-2018 by

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.

Okay product - 27-09-2018 by

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.

Oily skin wonder !!! - 17-09-2018 by

So moisturising but not oily. Will never use another moisturiser. Highly recommend.

Love this cream!! Excellent for combating my acne problem :) - 12-09-2018 by

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 :) :)

Love it! - 11-09-2018 by

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

Great moisturiser - 03-09-2018 by

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.

Does the trick! - 29-08-2018 by

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.

Must give it a try!!! (If you dont mind the smell) - 22-08-2018 by

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!

Great for oily/acne prone - 17-08-2018 by

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

Good value for money - 09-08-2018 by

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.

Perfect Moisturiser - 02-08-2018 by

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.

Love this product - 31-07-2018 by

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.

Great Prodcut - 30-07-2018 by

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!

Great for oily skin - 18-07-2018 by

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.

Good for very oily skin - 17-07-2018 by

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.

Love this, worth the buy - 04-07-2018 by

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).

Best moisturiser - 27-06-2018 by

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.

Perfect - 21-06-2018 by

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

Nice texture - 19-06-2018 by

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

Great stuff - 14-06-2018 by

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.

A must have - 13-06-2018 by

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.

Skinstitut is great - 13-06-2018 by

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.

Amazing - 31-05-2018 by

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.

Disappointed - 30-05-2018 by

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.

amazing - 07-05-2018 by

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

Great for day time - 19-02-2018 by

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.

Good moisturiser for sensitive spotty skin - 16-10-2017 by

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.

Skinstitut Fan - 16-10-2017 by

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.

Lightweight moisturiser - good for sensitive skin - 10-10-2017 by

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

Love it! - 21-06-2017 by

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

Great Product - 13-07-2016 by

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.

Way too expensive for a basic moituriser - 23-02-2016 by

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.
