The Ordinary Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA 100ml by The Ordinary


The Ordinary Deciem is known for its treatments, serums, and acids. The brand tends to stay away from the traditional three-step cleanse, tone, moisturise skincare routine. However, Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA is a nod to traditional skincare that incorporates the same high-performance, no-frills approachof The Ordinary.


This moisturiser uses a blend of hydrating ingredients to help nourish dehydrated and dry skin for both instant and long-term hydration.


Key benefits of The Ordinary Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA


  • Contains ingredients that occur naturally in the skin, such as Hyaluronic Acid and Amino Acids
  • Lightweight moisturiser for dry and dehydrated skin
  • Delivers instant and long-term hydration
  • Oil-free
  • Non-comedogenic
  • 100 ml



What are the key ingredients in The Ordinary Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA?

The key ingredients in this moisturiser are all hydration boosters that occur naturally in the skin. These include a cocktail of Amino Acids, Glycerin, Hyaluronic Acid, Sodium PCA, Ceramide Precursors, Urea, Essential Fatty Acids, Saccharides, Sterols, and Triglycerides.


How do the key ingredients work together?

The ingredients in The Ordinary Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA are all naturally occurring and work to supplement deficiencies in dry and dehydrated skin. When applied to the skin, they help to repair and strengthen the skin barrier whilst locking in hydrating instantly and for the long term.


How to use The Ordinary Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA

This lightweight moisturiser should be the last step of any skincare routine in the morning and evening. It should be used after any oils, serums, and treatments, and before a makeup primer or SPF is applied.


Who is The Ordinary Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA suitable for?

The Ordinary Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA is best used on dry or dehydrated skin. The lightweight and non-comedogenic formulation can also be used on skin that is both on the oily side and dehydrated. For those with extremely dry skin, this serum should be used alongside an additional hydration treatment, such as The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5.


Is The Ordinary Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA good for acne?

The Ordinary Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA has not been specifically developed as an acne treatment on its own. However, it can help to support an acne-treatment routine to help boost moisture and repair dehydrated skin.


Is The Ordinary Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA good for scars and pigmentation?

Scarred or pigmented skin can definitely benefit from The Ordinary Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA. This serum helps boost hydration and repair damaged skin. However, it is not a treatment for scarring or pigmentation in itself. For best results in this case, use the product as part of a routine specifically developed for minimising the appearance of scarring and pigmentation.


Is The Ordinary Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA good for rosacea?

Rosacea can leave skin feeling incredibly dry and dehydrated. The Ordinary Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA is a great choice for providing an instant hydration boost and repairing the skin’s natural barrier. This serum can be used alongside The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 for even more hydration on drier skin types.


Is The Ordinary Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA comedogenic?

This lightweight moisturiser is both oil-free and noncomedogenic, so it will not block congested skin.

Truly Nourishing! - 22-09-2018 by

I like its texture and the almost cashmere-like finish on my skin. I use this after my serums in the morning and just before I put on my sunscreen. You will never go wrong with this moisturiser!

Great value - 21-09-2018 by

Its not the product that The Ordinary are known for, but my trust in this brand is strong, and alongside my other products from them, i know this is doing good. At such a great price, i know i can afford to lather my skin with it, which i would have avoided with the high-price point products i have tried in the past. For that alone, my skin loves it!

Not my favourite - 21-09-2018 by

I have combination skin that is usually drier in winter and gets oily on my t zone. I was disappointed with this moisture i guess i had high hopes as the other serums are awesome. This moisturiser felt nice on my fingers when applying and seemed to go on ok but it then felt so heavy and clogging on my pores and my face felt like it was suffocating and i just wanted to wash it off.

Great value product - 20-09-2018 by

I'm use to spending a lot more money on brands and moisturisers – but this was a great cheaper product. It goes on lovely and provides the perfect amount of moisture. I have skin that changes frequently (as I am constantly moving around to different climates) and found it moistured really well, but didn't make my skin oily. Yes, the bottles are small – but they are much cheaper than most products so I think it's fine.

Fantastic value moisturiser! - 20-09-2018 by

My skin can be quite dry/dehydrated and this moisturiser does the trick! It’s quite thick so you don’t need too much but it absorbs really well and keeps my skin hydrated all day. I use it in conjunction with some of The Ordinary serums.

Stocking up - 20-09-2018 by

Just in August, i bought 3 tubes of this!

You know why? Because in my country this moisturiser is doubled the price and its is soooooo goooddd to my skin!

It moisturises my skin like no other product! I use it daily and i'm loving how it reflects to my skin. I neverrr had anything like this before.

hydrating and not greasy - 20-09-2018 by

I like this product, I use it in the morning after Buffet. It makes my skin sweat a little when I first put it on for whatever reason but then it is fine and non greasy. I have had no issues with dryness or oiliness. I am almost 30 with normal skin. Note that it does not contain SPF so those who spend time outside during the day best to apply a sunscreen also.

Works well - 18-09-2018 by

I have dry skin and always need a good moisturiser to help out and this one is definitely one of them! It's very rare that a thin moisturiser will do a good job on my dry skin so the thickness didn't worry me at all, I'm used to that being a part of a good moisturise. I will definitely buy this one again as not only does it do a great job but you also don't need to use much so it's lasting longer than I thought it would so I'm even happier about that as I can go through a lot of moisturiser.

Shocked - 18-09-2018 by

When I first got the product in the mail I opened it up and was expecting a bottle HALF the size of what it is! So shocked about the price range for what you get. I love to wear this product under makeup as it really helps to keep my skin smooth and amazing!! I think this product is great for people with oily skin, new fav moisturiser!

Best no-fragrance, no-fuss moisturizer - 18-09-2018 by

I was searching for a simple moisturizer that had no fragrance and this is perfect! It compliments my skin routine so well because it has the one purpose - to moisturize - and I don't have to worry that it will counteract with my other daily and nightly products. I would love, love, love if you stocked this in the larger size! Also a great moisturizer for men because it is so fuss and smell free.

LOVE!! - 17-09-2018 by

I lovedddd this moisturiser. I've had oily/combination acne prone skin for years and always struggled to find a moisturiser that wasn't too oily, or filled with fragrance and frills that do nothing for the skin! This one was perfect and I only needed to the smallest amount morning and night. I would use it over the top of my Egyptian Magic oil every second night to lock in all the goodness. Cant recommend enough!

Perfect. - 17-09-2018 by

this moisturiser gets an A+, it's rich enough that a little goes a long way, but not heavy or greasy. since starting to use this AM and PM, with Hylamide HA booster, my skin never gets dry, even in harsh Melbourne winter!

Amazing! - 13-09-2018 by

Have been looking for a well priced, good quality moisturiser like this for a while! This is amazing stuff and will be my go-to for a long time!

Perfect Balance! - 13-09-2018 by

I bought this moisturiser in the hopes that it would replace my previous high-end moisturiser. I have incredibly dry skin, so I depend on a rich moisturiser to deliver my skin a crucial hit of moisture especially during the dead of winter when my skin just gives up on me. This product was a beautiful consistency and was definitely effective in hydrating my skin. It definitely wasn't too heavy and I found it very easy to apply make-up over.
I personally prefer something a little richer for my overnight moisturiser but I think this product is perfect for day time use, summer use or for anybody that isn't Sahara-level dry like me. I definitely still reach for this product daily and have enjoyed incorporating into my routine.

My go to! New holy grail - 11-09-2018 by

I have combination skin - oily T-zone and dry perimeter. This cream is amazing! Doesn't break me out and very moisturising on my skin. This is a very rich cream but not greasy at all and very fast absorbing - leaves my skin feeling incredible! The best part is that this works well for both summer and winter in Oz! 100% worth the price.

On a side note, very cute high-end packaging.

good basic cream - 11-09-2018 by

I like this cream- it's very basic but that is all I want under my makeup for every day. I have combination oily skin and so don't want anything too heavy. This can be worn under sunscreen and makeup every day and doesn't make me more oily which I love. I don;t find it moisturizing enough for night though

So moisturising and hydrating! - 11-09-2018 by

Love this moisturiser... so light weight and lovely under your makeup. Keeps you moisturised all day without feeling oily. I love when hyaluronic acid is added to any product especially moisturisers. About to purchase another!

Love this - 10-09-2018 by

I have mature skin, oily and dehydrated.
This moisturiser leaves my skin feeling great and ready to apply primer.
Since using it I notice my skin is plumper and the crepey effect in some areas has diminished.

Cheap and cheerful - 10-09-2018 by

I have combo oily skin and in my mid 30s. This moisturiser doesn’t have fancy ingredients but does a good job of moisturising. I have repurchased

Would buy again - 10-09-2018 by

Nice and simple moisturiser that is not too heavy. Works well with other products in the brand. Goes under any of my foundations, just needs a moment to sink in first.

Hydrating but a weird texture - 09-09-2018 by

I really really wanted to love this as i love all their serums and their products are such good value! But the texture is a little weird... its thick, which I like, but a little tough to blend in. It would make sense if it had a sunscreen in it, but it's a little annoying to have to still do two steps given how thick this one is. I'll finish the tube, but wouldn't purchase again.

Moisturised and glowy - 07-09-2018 by

This product keeps my skin so moisturized. It isn't oily at all which is something that I hate in face creams and after applying I can actually feel my skin soaking it up and it stays nice and moisturized all day. I use this cream both morning and night. I also love the fact that it isn't scented so it makes me feel refreshed after applying! LOVE!

Hydrating - 06-09-2018 by

Its a great product that absorbs really well and is not greasy. I have used it in conjuncture with other Ordinary products, so I'm not sure of it's effectiveness on its own, but its a nice light weight moisturiser that feels luxurious on application

Very Moisturing - 06-09-2018 by

Works well over other products from the Ordinary. And the big size lasts such a long time for such a cheap price.

Go-to moisturiser - 06-09-2018 by

I love this product, it's my second time purchasing it. I use it every morning, and occasionally at night over serums and acids if I want to hold off on an active moisturiser (sometimes I like to isolate products to see their actual effects!). For some reason I feel like this tube is more effective than the last, but I could be imagining it; the texture is just so nice, my skin is combination but it gives a nice healthy looking finish and is good under a BB/CC cream. Just a great basic for an equally great price.

Very good for what you pay for - 06-09-2018 by

Honestly, this moisturiser does wonders for its price range. It is very affordable and its ability to keep the skin moisturised works just as well as other higher end moisturisers I've tried. The only reason I gave it a 4 star instead of 5 is that it tends to leave a crayon-like scent on my face after application. I'm not sure if it's only me, but other than that, it is a great overall moisturiser.

It is okay, but not extremely moisturising - 05-09-2018 by

it only provides superficial hydration, my skin becomes dry again 30 mins after application

Great effective, basic moisturiser - 05-09-2018 by

This is a fantastic moisturiser for lots of different skin types. It's a really simple formula that won't irritate at all. I have very dry skin and often need something extra, or two layers, but still love using this as for the price it's well worth it.

Great product at a great price! - 04-09-2018 by

I have been drawn to the ordinary’s products for a while, and finally decided to give them a go. This moisturiser feels great on my skin, non greasy and has convenient packaging. Would definitely purchase again!

Good product. Not for dry skin - 03-09-2018 by

I love this range however with more dry skin this wasn’t moisturising enough for me. No fragrance and light still a great product for normal or oily skin. If you have dry skin you’ll need something richer and more hydrating even with their amazing oils and serums

Love this product - 31-08-2018 by

I have been using this moisturiser for 5 weeks now. Very hydrating and extremely reasonably priced. Does what a lot of more expensive moisturisers do. Using it day and night. Love that it comes in a 100 ml. Only a small amount needs to be used - goes a long way.

AMAZING! - 31-08-2018 by

For such a cheap product, I didn't expect much from just a moisturiser. However, having such dry skin in winter, this moisturiser improved the condition of my skin significantly. My skin would feel dry half way during the day but since using this, I have only needed to moisturise my face morning and night. The cream is quite thick, so you only need a little amount. In saying that, a little goes a long way! I would highly recommend anyone who has dry skin to give this product a try. Still can't believe it's only $12.90!

Love the big size! - 31-08-2018 by

Fantastic value with the big sized tube of this well formulated moisturizer. Soft texture, absorbs easily, matte finish. Great around the eyes, too, no irritation or puffiness in the morning. Wouldn’t use anything else since discovering this gem.

Stunning Moisturiser - 30-08-2018 by

I was recommended to use this moituriser after I had tried a lot of different brands! I am a flight attendant and my skin is prone to dryness and the occasional cystic pimple. After using this moiuriser combined with the Niacinimide for 2 weeks it completely cleared up my skin and made it glow! I have now been using it for 4 months and I am onto my second bottle. You really don’t need a lot. Use a pea size amount twice a day after the Niacinimide for new fresh glowing skin!

Good but a bit thick - 30-08-2018 by

I really like this moisturiser in that it does a good job in moisturising the skin, my only complaint is how hard it is to get out of the tube sometimes.

Works well for oily skin! - 30-08-2018 by

I have oily skin and at first I was hesitant in buying so many oils and moisturisers.
I apply the Natural Moisturising Factors in the morning after using the Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5.
The best thing is you only need a really small amount to go a long way, this product will last you ages!
Works well under makeup too!

Don't be worried if you have oily skin! - 28-08-2018 by

I read some of the reviews, and was concerned about whether it would be good for my oily/combination skin?
It is!
I bought this to replace my Seaweed Gel from the Body Shop. It's got a kind of masky-matte feel. Way more than the gels I was previously using, and I love it.

Only use it in little bits, otherwise it may get greasy. My skin feels super soft, and has been thanking me for it!

Amazing - 27-08-2018 by

Hands down one of the best moisturisers I've used, this leaves the skin looking balanced rather than oily in comparison to some other brands I've used over the past few years. Highly recommend for the price and benefits!

Great AM and PM moisturiser - 24-08-2018 by

I use this day and night its very lightweight and very moisturising on my dry skin

such good value! - 24-08-2018 by

This moisturizer is awesome because it hydrates and nourishes your skin and doesn't feel too thick. It also is lightweight enough to use after other treatments such as serums etc.. I use this every night on my skin and it is feeling plump and hydrated. I'm so glad that they released this in a larger bottle it makes it even better value and means I'm creating less waste.

Happy with this moisturiser. - 20-08-2018 by

To be able to try a new product at a very reasonable price and end up being happy with it is great. I am using 4 different The Ordinary products and am happy with each. It is an affordable range.. this moisturiser is a non greasy feel on my mature normal to slightly dry skin. I sometimes use a serum under it at night. Happy to recommend this moisturiser.

Pretty good - 14-08-2018 by

I like this moisturiser because it’s nice and thick and goes well under an application of make up. It’s a shame the tube won’t last as long because it’s smaller but I’ll be buying again for sure

Stick with it - 13-08-2018 by

When The Ordinary first brought this out, I was a bit underwhelmed. It seemed too matte and pilled if you layered it over too many serums. Since then, I've gotten a bit better at applying it (pat - don't rub!) and have really noticed the difference between this and mineral oil based moisturisers. It is also the perfect vehicle for mixing in a few drops of rosehip or other oils. Now I can't live without it!

A good everyday moistursier - 11-08-2018 by

This moisturiser is a good everyday moisturiser, nothing special but does the job. I love how all the ordinary products are so reasonably priced.

Great everyday moisturiser - 09-08-2018 by

Not a ground-breaking moisturiser, but it's a good everyday moisturiser which sits well under makeup and doesn't break me out like others do.

grabs moisture - 08-08-2018 by

I really like this moisturiser to blend with my rosehip oil as it encourages the skin to hold the moisture.

Perfect for the summertime! - 08-08-2018 by

I've got combination skin and always struggled to find a moisturiser that I can use during summer - without causing what seems like endless congestion. However, this product is amazing - a pea sized amount covers my entire face, without feeling too heavy in the heat AND after a day in an air conditioned office, my face still feels plump and healthy.

During the winter time, I will add two drops of The Ordinary Plant-Derived Squalane and rub it together in my hands before applying to my face to combat the dreaded dehydration caused by indoor heating.

Byrne - 08-08-2018 by

Love love love this moisturizer! I do mix a drop of rose hip oil with it then apply BB cream and my skin feels amazing. No dry patches but not oily either. I have combination skin and apart from dermalogica this has been the best brand for my skin. And way better value for money!

Great product for sensitive skin - 06-08-2018 by

This product is light, easily used under make up. Is great for my sensitive skin. Not a lot of product is needed. Great product and great price. Will definitely be purchasing again.

A good base - 02-08-2018 by

It's nothing amazing, but it's a good, stable moisturiser. It's quite a small tube, however a small amount goes a long way. I have dry skin and find this perfect for under my makeup. I don't find it's quite enough for night but I have other TO products I use at night. Overall a good product, but I wouldn't rave about it. I'd probably repurchase regardless. It's actually a handy travel sized tube.

Moisturising and definitely worth the cheap price. - 31-07-2018 by

This product provides a deeply moisturising effect on my skin and only a small amount is needed every time. I live in a very dry climate and this help protect my skin all day without leaving my skin feeling sticky and without a shine.

A wonderful natural hydrator - 27-07-2018 by

This is my go-to moisturiser - clean, simple, calm on my sensitive skin, and excellent at keeping my skin hydrated.

My favourite moisturiser - 27-07-2018 by

This product feels very soothing and hydrating on my skin. I use it daily and it works perfectly for me under makeup. I have acne prone skin and this product does not break me out. I will continue to purchase and would recommend to anyone!

Nice clean feeling soft skin - 27-07-2018 by

I have super dry flaky skin and rounding off my skin care with this has kept the flakes away without any oily/greasy feeling!

the one i have been looking for!` - 26-07-2018 by

This is the best moisturizer i have found for my dry and sensitive skin! it keeps my make up on well and makes my skin feel so soft!!!

great day/night - 26-07-2018 by

Oily/acne prone skin looking for a reasonably priced multi-tasking day/night moisturising. I found this to be very effective at keeping my oily skin at bay. Very easy to apply and can put my makeup over the top.

Perfect basic moisturiser - 26-07-2018 by

This product is fantastic for my dry and acne prone skin.

Usually moisturisers made for acne prone skin are not hydrating enough for me, and those made for dry skin are too greasy and make me break out - however this one is perfect. It goes on thick and absorbs well, and it's hydrating enough while feeling nice and lightweight. It also sits well under makeup.

I do still use an oil on top of this product most nights for an extra boost, however if I do forget to use the oil every now and then my skin is fine - whereas with other products, I would wake up with tight, dry and itchy skin without an oil.

The price is also great of course!

Not hydrating enough and doesn't soak in over the top of serums - 25-07-2018 by

I was recommended this for combination/dry skin but it's not hydrating enough for me. It's quite a thick moisturiser and when used after their Buffet and Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% serums, it leaves a white film over my face (almost like sunscreen/zinc does) and takes a lot of work to get it to soak in.

On a positive note, I have slightly sensitive skin and this has no scent and doesn't irritate it at all.

Great basic moisturiser for layering. - 24-07-2018 by

I am more on the dryer side and found this moisturiser not enough if using it alone, however when I layer the serums underneath it works well and you wouldn’t want anything heavier.

Pleasantly surprised - 24-07-2018 by

I've been using a moisturiser by Clarins for several years now and while I've loved it it's been very expensive. I bought this to try because I like other products in the Ordinary range and thought it was worth it for the price. I'm so glad I did! I was nervous that my skin may breakout with trying a new product but It's been the opposite. I've found my skin is hydrated but not oily. Even though the product is not scented, it seems to have a slight fishy smell to me which put me off a little at first. However now that I can see how well it works I'm happy to put up with the slight smell because of the hydration and the price. I love it.

Light - 24-07-2018 by

Great light moisturizer for daily use. Nothing extraordinary but it didn't clog up my pores or irritate my sensitive skin. Well priced too.

Great for Oily Skin - 20-07-2018 by

I have naturally oily skin and I would say this is the best Face Moisturizer I've used. I'll use this after I shower at night, on top of my oil and i'll also use after my primer before I apply my makeup. I have noticed a different in my skin since using this, it doesn't get as oily during the day. Highly Recommend for oily skin.

Not as moisturizing as I would like...... - 19-07-2018 by

I bought this moisturizer for the first time 3 months ago. I have been using it with other products like Buffet and the Granactive Retinoid 2%. Combined with these products I think it works well, but on its own I do sometimes find that my skin is a little bit dry. I will continue to use it though together with the other products. It's a great price and this 100ml tube is still going after 3 months, so it goes a long way.

OK, not sure it lives up to the hype - 18-07-2018 by

I was really excited to try this product. I have combination/oily sensitive skin.

This product is ok as it doesn't cause breakouts and I've definitely noticed that my skin is more smooth (although that could be because I'm also using The Ordinary Buffet and The Ordinary Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution).

I wouldn't repurchase as I found it quite dehydrating on my skin if I use it without an oil base like rosehip oil. First up, it makes my skin look wrinkled and tired. It also doesn't create a great base by itself as I find it difficult to spread makeup on smoothly, especially powders. I've been left with streaks or clumps on my face when I put bronzer on.

Looking at the other reviews, it might just be my skin type. I was pretty disappointed with the end result though.

Fantastic moisturiser ever! - 18-07-2018 by

Works well after the Buffet serum. I find it really hydrating and I noticed that my pores got smaller too! I have only been using this for more or less a month now but I can already see improvements on my skin. I also have old acne scars which left tiny holes in my face and couldn't believe how this product improved those imperfections! Now, the tiny bumps and holes were almost flat and even. I am so impressed with this product! Highly recommended!

Bought twice, will buy again - 16-07-2018 by

I bought the smaller tube of this to test out as a nighttime moisturiser. I have had issues with cystic acne in the past that I treat with a lot of acids and serums, and I like something thicker at night.

I sleep with an overnight treatment mask on 1-2 nights a week, and I use this one every other night. I love it! It's nice and thick and creamy but doesn't leave me feeling greasy. I liked it so much in the small size that I upgraded to the 100ml.

I will likely buy again as it's a good everyday moisturiser. I even use it in the mornings sometimes when I feel I need a moisture boost.

Not super hydrating enough and thick/sticky - 13-07-2018 by

Just got this moisturiser and idk if I hate it or love it. It gets sticky when u finish applying it and it’s very hard to rub it in. There’s white on my face which was hard to rub and disappear. I put it with the hyalunoric serum from the ordinary and moisturiser together, and it feels sticky and thick. BUT when you finish applying the moisturiser it’s smooth at first but after for like an hr it loses it’s hydration. Not really a good moisturiser for me. I have flaky dry skin so it’s not that great for me.

Great for combination skin. - 12-07-2018 by

I have combination skin and have never really used moisturiser but since starting to use serums I thought I'd need to as I have sensitive skin. I've only been using this for a couple of weeks, roughly every 3rd day. I can't fault it. It has a thick consistency which I love but a small amount of product goes a long way. It has a matte finish which is also ideal. My skin has never felt softer and more plump.

Excellent product! - 12-07-2018 by

I love this moisturizer. It does exactly what moisturizers are supposed to do. Leaves my skin feeling plump and hydrated without an oily residue or overpowering scent (it actually smells like nothing at all!)
Works beautifully under makeup. Really great price for a decent sized bottle. It will be in my staples forever!

Surprisingly good! - 12-07-2018 by

I bought this as an everyday moisturiser to try out given the price point. So I didn’t expect too much. However I was pleasantly surprised. It feels creamy but not oily, and soaked in quickly. I have combination skin which usually dries out in winter with the indoor heating, however for the first time, this is not happening! It feels light, but you get good results with minimal product. Love it and repurchased the larger sizes!

for oily skin its really good - 10-07-2018 by

for oily skin its really good

It's a winner! - 09-07-2018 by

I have dehydrated combination skin and my concern was that my previous moisturizers left me with breakouts. I wanted to try this out because the price was appealing and it was the best decision ever!
The consistency is a little thick but it doesn't leave an uncomfortable overly dewy layer on the skin which can cause breakouts. It locks in my hydrating serums well. I love it and I always reccomend it.

Good all-rounder - 09-07-2018 by

This is a great staple moisturiser. It works just as well as any other high end moisturiser I've used at a fraction of the price. This moisturiser kept my skin very well hydrated throughout the day even under a very full coverage foundation set with powder. Although my skin is oily it can also become very dry under foundation by the end of the day. This has no noticeable scent which I prefer in a moisturiser.
The only thing to note is that it has a very thick consistency and can sometimes feel very clumpy. This is easily fixed by warming the moisturiser between your fingers before applying it to your face.
I'm 43 with oily to combination skin that is fair to medium.

Good occlusive cream - 06-07-2018 by

The texture of this cream is thick and a bit lumpy so I prefer to warm it in my hands and kind of press/pat it into my skin as a final step in my routine. It doesn't feel very hydrating when used on its own and it leaves quite a matte finish, but it's perfect as an occlusive layer to lock in the moisture from other hydrating products and serums.

best moisturiser i have ever used! - 04-07-2018 by

I have very oily skin and I have found that pretty much all of the moisturisers I have used have only added to that oilyness, but this product helps more skin feel nicer and more normal which is amazing.

Umm. - 03-07-2018 by

I have been using this moisturiser for the past couple weeks and I’m at the point where I don’t know if I love it or hate it.

I’m used to using water based products which instantly leaves your skin feeling fresh and this doesn’t leave me feeling fresh. It’s lightweight but almost had a silicone feel when it’s on. Great before makeup because it dries really quick but again it’s not hydrating enough around my problem areas.

It’s quite thick and has a weird consistency where it’s a little lumpy. I have oily/combo skin and it actually dries up all my oils and leaves my face looking great.

There are a lot of pros and cons about this. Going to try and pair it with some oils to give me more hydration.

Great daily moisturizer but I don't think it's hydrating enough for dehydrated skin - 02-07-2018 by

At first when I got this I hated the texture, it's honestly weird. Thick, but super lightweight, sort of puffy and slightly kinda reminds me of silly string. But I came around to it as its benefits outweigh the strangeness of it.

I have been using this during the day for awhile and I'm not sure if it's really hydrating enough for me or not. I like the idea of mixing it with a bit of oil though so I'm going to order some rosehip and try it because this product has potential. I tried mixing it with The Ordinary HA and it's fine once you put it on your face but it doesn't mix well in your hand. I really like that it absorbs and dries down fast which makes it good for applying before makeup. I very much agree with the review that said it dries down "dewy, but not sweaty". I'm kinda fussy and like my moisturizers to absorb and mattify as much as possible and I'm pretty happy with this one in that regard.

I would definitely recommend this if you're looking for a medium-to-light moisturizer but I think I need a little more for my dehydrated skin. I'm on the fence about repurchasing but I definitely would if it had SPF or there was a rich version.

Very moisturing but made my pores look like they are filled with dirt - 02-07-2018 by

I have been using alot of the Ordinary products and found my skin was getting dry from the salycic acid. I thought I would try this product after seeing so many great reviews. The moisturiser feels great, it has a smooth consistency and seems to seep into a nice layer of skin. It didnt feel sticky and I would wake up to very hydrated skin. However after a few times of using it my pores which were very clear and fresh, were starting to look like they were covered in dirt and my nose and cheeks appeared to have blackheads when they really didnt. It was just this product putting oil into my pores. Once i realised it was this product giving this affect to my skin, I went back to the cold pressed organic rosehip oil as my moisturiser at night and havent had any issues since!

great when paired with a face oil - 27-06-2018 by

this is a good moisturise. I pair it with the marula face oil, to really pump up the hydration. my skin is dry, so for normal complexions it would probably do the job alone.

Great for moisturising! - 25-06-2018 by

This product is perfect for dry skin! It makes my skin feel plump and hydrated. It is good to use at night during winter and the colder months as it really does add moisture back into the skin

Wow - 25-06-2018 by

This moisturiser is the best! Not too light, not too heavy, just right! Skin feels moisturised all day without feeling clogged. After a year of using this I wont use anything else.

The best moisturiser I have ever used - 25-06-2018 by

Until I tried this product, I would avoid moisturisers at all cost as it would be heavy on my skin, cause it to become irritated and break out. However now I use this moisturiser any time of the day, before makeup and after makeup. My skin is noticeably smoother and more hydrated.

Great value for money - 20-06-2018 by

This is a great value everyday moisturiser. It is thick and creamy, and provides great hydration for my combo to dry skin without being greasy or sticky. It absorbs quickly into the skin and sits well under make up. Another great no frills The Ordinary product.

Good product but could do without - 19-06-2018 by

I like this product but don't notice a difference when I don't use it. I have found other products from The Ordinary more effective on my skin. I use this product when I am pushed for time or feeling lazy but find my skin stays moisturised from the Buffet and Rosehip Oil products.

great basic but not wow - 19-06-2018 by

I used this when my skin hated everything I put on it and it seems to be pretty gentle. my skin is usually pretty sensitive anyway. it didn't sting when most other things did. it didn't astonish me but I wasn't expecting it to for that price. hydrates me well enough throughout the day, but if my skin is feeling parched I definitely need an oil underneath as it's not rich enough for dry skin. the texture is a bit weird, kinda moussey but feels nice on the skin. just not ideal for mixing with other things (serum, illuminator etc) as I often do.

Lightweight, Affordable, stunning! - 19-06-2018 by

I have encountered many moisturising creams over the years and they all leave ,y face sticky and looking not that healthy but I've been using this product for over a week now and wow!! It ALWAYS leaves my skin feeling fresh and looking plump, hydrated and flawless and it doesn't feel heavy on the skin! It soaks in and when I apply it and I makes my foundation apply flawlessly!
110% recommend this product.

Can’t believe it’s such a good price! - 18-06-2018 by

I’ve been tending to use this more than my more expensive products. It goes perfectly with the Ordinary serums (I use Retinol 2% Granactive, The Buffet and Vitamin C 23%) However it also works well alone, either before bed or in the morning before applying a primer. Will definitely purchase again and again!

Great all-rounder - 18-06-2018 by

Such a great moisturiser with no hidden nasties. Nice and thick - would work perfect for day or night - or once a day if you have oilier skin. I put think on my dry/sensitive skin in the evening after double cleansing and it is extremely hydrating. A little bit also goes a very long way, so one tube would last a long time. Would definitely repurchase!

Effective, affordable, great for all skin types - 12-06-2018 by

I tried this out in the 30mL size and within a week ordered 6 of the 100mL tubes! I have oily/combination skin that's prone to cystic hormonal acne. I've often shied away from moisturiser and gone with light lotions instead. The texture of this stuff comes out weird, thick and pasty, and leaves a slight white film for a minute or so after you apply it, but good lord it's fantastic! It leaves my oily skin soft and supple, but quite matte. My girlfriend has very dry skin; she applies an oil (either squalane or marula) and then the NMF to seal it in, and she loves it too. We now both keep tubes in our bags, in the bathroom, and in the car. Bloody love this stuff.

Effective moisturiser - 12-06-2018 by

I have dry to normal skin and needed a good moisturiser to bring back life to my skin. This is a great effective moisturiser and does the job. The cream is white and quite thick so is great for those with dry skin or for use in winter.

Had high hopes :( - 11-06-2018 by

I really wanted to love this. I was hoping I would be able to use this as a light moisturiser during summer but after 1-2 days it started breaking me out with tiny little bumps. I use and/or have used several other TO products with the same issue and put it down to some ingredients. I know this didn’t benefit my skin at all because once I stopped using it my skin calmed down. It’s nice under makeup though so I may use it if I ever run out of primer in an emergency.

Effective and cheap! - 08-06-2018 by

I have been using this moisturizer in combination with trying a few Sukin options. It is a great price. It absorbs quickly and hydrates. Does not break me out.

The only downside is that my Neutrogena Sheer Face sunscreen pills when layering over this moisturizer.

Amazing product at a cheap price - 07-06-2018 by

With really sensitive and oily skin with the dreaded adult acne I am usually quite hesitant about trying new products.
This product was recommended to me by a friend after I was having issues with moisturizers turning my face into an oil farm by 12pm.
I've found this product to be very gentle and hydrating (pair with TO 'Buffet' and it's a dream). My skin has never felt softer and I think a combination of other TO products it's never looked better!
Would 100% recommend to everyone to try - with the price you can't go wrong! Will be ordering again when I run out.
Shout out to the team at Adore for the once again quick turn around time from point of order!

Best moisturiser - 04-06-2018 by

This moisturiser is the best! Not too light, not too heavy, just right! Skin feels moisturised all day without feeling clogged. After a year of using this I wont use anything else.

Nice moisturizer but not as good as the other Ordinary products - 30-05-2018 by

This is a great all-round moisturizer, but I haven't used it much. I ordered this at the same time as the Squalane oil, and I like the feeling of that product better than this moisturizer. But, if oil is not your thing, this is a great product and it's well priced.

The one of the best seller of The Ordinary brand - 29-05-2018 by

This is an amazing moisturiser. I have been recommended to use it together with my
other product from The Ordinary brand - the Retinoid - by Adorebeauty specialist ( thank you! ) and love it.
I have combination skin and it just works perfectly for me, absorbs very well and no fragrance for skin care is what I am always after.
And love the packaging, minimalistic and chic.
I will repurchase again.

Good basic moisturiser - 25-05-2018 by

This is a good moisturiser for sensitive skin and is also well priced.

Good moisturiser under makeup - 22-05-2018 by

I only use this moisturiser under makeup as this does not leave me a greasy feeling, unlike any other moisturisers I have. But I dont find this product moisturising enough as an evening cream. I have dry skin and I feel the need to apply tons of it.

Does its job! - 19-05-2018 by

I like this moisturizer because it does its job - its doesnt feel heavy on my skin and doesnt have any smell to it (I prefer my products to be fragrance free). Only downfall is that its a bit small.

Favourite moisturiser that does what it says! - 17-05-2018 by

I have oily combo skin that is acne prone and have been trying to find the perfect moisturiser that doesn't make me oily after I apply it and provides adequate hydrating throughout all the seasons without being too greasy – this is it! I loved that this is also cheap and affordable, it sits so well under makeup.
