Hydrating and Lightweight - 15-01-2019 by

I'll start by saying that this is the BEST moisturiser I have come across, and I have tried them all. I have an oily T so I do struggle with finding the right products to manage the oils produced on my face, but this moisturiser (along with my other Ordinary products) helps control the shine and oil build up. I use this product both morning and night after I wash my face and apply my other toners, serums etc. and I can honestly say that I wake up in the morning feeling fresh and light. All other moisurisers that I have used that are said to be light weight and for oily skin simply make me wake up feeling clogged and oily, where I want to just rush to the bathroom to wash my face instantly. This moisturiser however has balanced out this issue, allowing me to feel as though I have fresh skin. Many friends have commented on the glow that I have my face is hydrated and soft. Could not speak more highly of this lightweight product. And the price... amazing! Love The Ordinary!

cheap and cheerful - 27-12-2018 by

I have used this product for some time now, the product is excellent value. The pot size is small but it does last quite a while. I have maturing skin and I am now finding the product isnt moisturising enough.
For younger skin with a small purseI would definately recommend this product. But for the older drier skin this product hasnt got the umph needed for ageing skin needs.

Good basic moisturiser - 21-12-2018 by

I have sensitive fair combination skin. This is a good, no frills moisturiser that does what it's supposed to and is fine for the price. I've read it's smart to just use a basic moisturiser that does the job and spend your money on serums so thought I'd give this a go and am happy so far.

Great product but too heavy! - 20-12-2018 by

I have combination skin. This product is too heavy on my skin! I hate sticky and heavy feel on my skin. But if you have a dry skin this will be good for you. Great price for a moisturiser if you don’t mind the heavy feel on your skin.

Moisturiser - 19-12-2018 by

It’s a fairly thick moisturiser so very hydrating, however a bit thick for my oily/combination skin. I now use it after I do an exfoliant and face mask to give it extra hydration when needed :)

Long lasting, Lovely feel. - 19-12-2018 by

I was hesitant to buy this one, mainly because I have a tone of half full moisturizers from other skincare ranges, however, I had purchased a few other ordinary products and wanted to make sure the moisturizer I used worked with their serums. You only need a small amount, it feels lovely and smooth. Only thing I'd say is because it is quick thick it seems to take a while to absorb into the skin when layered on top of serums so I try to do it a while before bed.

Ultimate Hydration!! - 18-12-2018 by

LOVED this product. Glides on easily and combined with The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid my skin felt more hydrated then it has in a long time. I have already recommended this product to others. For the price you can't really go wrong.

Not a stand out - 17-12-2018 by

Nothing that exciting about this product.. just a typical moisturiser. I have combination skin but this had no outstanding effect!

Good for hydration in combination with thicker moisturiser - 17-12-2018 by

I've been using the Natural Moisturising Factors + HA in combination with either a thicker moisturiser or face oil and found it works really well. Just using this product on its own does definitely hydrate and promote cell renewal, but I found it absorbed into my skin very quickly and needed something extra to provide lasting hydration.
I have quite dry skin so I generally prefer a thicker formula or oil, but if you're looking for a quick-absorbing moisturiser that's a bit lighter for daytime use, this would be fantastic. Also great for sensitive or eczema-prone skin!

Not bad - 10-12-2018 by

I personally didn’t like the texture of this moisturiser on my skin, it sat on top of my skin and felt thick. I ended up passing it onto a friend.

Ideal Travel Size - 10-12-2018 by

The 30ml size is perfect for travel. Mine has lasted a month with daily morning and evening use. Tip: I cut open the container after 4 weeks and there was still some sizeable amounts of product stuck to the insides.
I am 62 years old with very dehydrated skin due to medication I have to take and I have been using an expensive brand of skincare for the past two years. I am making the change to budget- priced The Ordinary products and am happy with the results so far. I add a couple of drops of The Ordinary cold-pressed Moroccan Argan oil to this moisturizer (as recommended by another reviewer) and I find this makes it more creamy and easier to apply. Without the addition of the oil, the moisturizer has more of a primer texture. I like the texture either way.
For home use I buy the 100ml size for a few extra dollars.

Good tingly - 29-11-2018 by

This product is great for overnight cell renewal. I have combination skin, with all the trimmings (wrinkles, pimples, blackheads, etc), so it's hard to find a good moisturiser. I use this one only at night and over the top of any serums I use. It's tingly at first, so I know it's working. Then it calms down and my skin has already improved after a week.

Beautiful moisturiser! - 28-11-2018 by

I was very hesitant to purchase this moisturiser due to the price, I was suggested to start a skin care routine using all the skinstitut products, I brought some of the products I needed but couldn’t afford to purchase the moisturiser in the skinstitut as well. I got on the online chat to Adore Beauty and said there recommendations for a cheaper option. The suggested The ordinary moisturiser, well up until I recieved it I was so worried I made the wrong choice due to the low price...... well I was wrong it’s a beautiful moisturiser, so light, refreshing and very hydrating. I am so happy and the price you can’t go wrong. Give it a try

great basic moisture - 26-11-2018 by

I was looking for an evening/non sunscreen moisturiser that didn't have too much going on in terms of active ingredients, as I already use a few serums/treatments. This fit the bill perfectly, and for the price there's no comparison

Amazing!! - 26-11-2018 by

Super hydrating without left over residue. My skin loves this product & so does my bank account. Never have I used such a good moisturiser esp for this price. The ordinary is just amazing

Budget friendly for an amazing moisturiser - 26-11-2018 by

Oily Skin type; Concerns: Large Pores, Blackheads and Excess Sebum. I know everyone reacts to products differently but this definitely worked for me. I love that it is so cheap but works so well. It's oil free and quite heavy during application but I feel my skin absorbing it in seconds. I have very stubborn oily skin that needs blotting everyday during stressful hours but after using this moituriser I've been blotting less and my glasses don't feel like an oil slick at all. Would definitely recommend this moisturiser for oily skin types as the ingredients are very friendly for that skin type. I would also recommend to combination skin! Will buy this again in the future as I am on a very tight budget, not a whole lot in the tube but a little goes a long way. This is sure to last me 3-4 months. Can't wait to combine this with The Ordinary serums!

Average moisturiser - 26-11-2018 by

I have combination skin in general but in the winter months it tends to be more on the dry side. I decided to try this because I've loved every other product I've used from The Ordinary. There was not much to love about this. It's an OK moisturiser, its very light, absorbs well but if you have dry skin then you may need something more than this. I would say if you have normal skin than it will be more suited for your skin type.

Average cream - 22-11-2018 by

I have very dry eczema prone skin and this wasn't thick or hydrating enough for me

Absorbs well but not moisturising enough for me - 20-11-2018 by

This review covers the following The Ordinary products:

Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%
Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5
The Ordinary Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate 10%
The Ordinary Vitamin C Suspension 23% + HA Spheres 2%
The Ordinary Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA 100ml
The Ordinary Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG

I was recommended The Ordinary products by a friend who also has dry, sensitive skin prone to redness. I'm male, 50.

When trying new products I try to get all the recommended products within a brand's range to give it a solid go. The first thing about The Ordinary products is trying to workout exactly what was suitable for my skin. Adore Beauty has a guide on its site but I also did a lot of Googling and came up with the list above.

Price is obviously an attraction to this product line. I've been using the products for about a month now & am really struggling to see any benefit particularly as I've experienced things like 'pilling' which I'd never heard of or experienced before using The Ordinary. It's really annoying & the only way around it is to use only one oil based product at a time.

My morning routine is buffet, niacinamide, hyaluronic acid followed by the moisturise & eye gel. Most of these serums are gel based and while they soak in quite well between applications they leave my skin feeling tight so I have to put on my regular other brand moisturiser.

In the evening I omit the niacinamide and put on either the Magnesium or the Vitamin C oil based creams. I then finish with another brand's moisturiser.

Perhaps it's too soon to see any results but I definitely need more moisturising creams than these water based serums. I like The Ordinary moisturiser which absorbs well while still being lightweight. The serums leave my skin shiny which I don't like & they don't calm any razor burn even if applied over my post-shave balm.

I'm still undecided as to whether I'll buy these products again. If I do it will be because of the price & I might regard them as 'fertiliser' nourishment for my skin rather than an everyday routine.

Didn't love it - 19-11-2018 by

Sadly I didn't love this product. I felt like it made my skin feel quite greasy rather than moisturised and I am still trying to finish the tube.

For reference my skin is oily/combination with occasional breakouts and I am 29.
I have fine lines, blackheads and textured skin.

I definitely think there are better moisturisers out there for my skin type.

Great moisturiser for oily, acne-prone combination skin - 16-11-2018 by

This is a great moisturiser, especially given the price- amazing! A little goes a long way, and even though the size of the product is small, it lasts a long time. I use this at night after my skin care routine (cleanse, tone, acne treatments) and it is the perfect product to 'seal in' my treatments, hydrate my dry areas and does not cause my to break out around my problem areas. I'll definitely re-purchase when this runs out.

Smooth and Moistuising - 16-11-2018 by

I love this as a primer moisturiser but I agree with some of the other comments that say it doesn't seem to be as satisfying as a moisturiser. I'm not exactly sure how to explain, but it feels like my skin needs a little more moisture.

It is a okay moisturizing - 13-11-2018 by

i mean i cant say this is not good, it did the job, but i would not re purchase again
even its cheap......
The texture is a bit not my type of cream that i would use, the feel of this moisture is not creamy but firm cream, need to rub on my palm and blend on my face.

Hydrating - 12-11-2018 by

A nice light moisturiser that instantly hydrates

Affordable skin care superstar - 05-11-2018 by

This product is perfect if you’re looking for affordable skin care with active ingredients. Definitely did what it says and hydrated my dry skin however my skin still looked quite dull, I’d like to try the Vitamin c moisturiser in the future to see if that adds a glow.

Not Enough Moisture for my dry skin - 05-11-2018 by

Of course we are all different....but if your skin is thirsty like mine, perhaps this won't give you the moisturising effect you are looking for. I used this after applying the Ordinary Buffet and whilst it soaked in really well, my skin felt tight and this made me feel like I needed to add some other moisturiser to complete my routine. It didn't make a big enough impact for my dry skin to warrant me purchasing this one again.

great - 30-10-2018 by

great product and cheap too for oily skin but everyone is different just remember that

Great Moisturiser! - 29-10-2018 by

I use this Moisturiser after applying serum and it's a great hydrating product that doesn't make my skin oily or break out. Very affordable too!

Reasonable night cream - 26-10-2018 by

I purchased this for the HA. I use over other serums at night.
Have always had dry/combination skin prone to breakouts. My skin is better, but I think that is because of the serums, not this cream. It doesn't have sunscreen either, so not great for day use. Medium consistency which glides well into the skin and I haven't broken out which happens with most creams I use of this consistency. OK for the price or to use after a good serum, but having dry skin, I don't think it would do the job on it's own

It's okay, not hype-worthy. - 24-10-2018 by

I decided to try this moisturiser after hearing lots of hype about The Ordinary and their products. So I was super excited when it arrived but the excitement stopped there.

This moisturiser wasn't worth the hype to me. It is really, really thick and hard to spread on the face. I use it at nighttime after serums, I guess it does the job, but I won't be making this a permanent part of my skincare routine.

need a bigger tube! - 24-10-2018 by

I really feel like this product does a good job trapping the beneficial Buffet active ingredients under a layer of protection and makes my skin feel more hydrated. I am noticing though that I will likely run out of this product before I am finished with Buffet and Retinol as it doesn't seem to go as far as the liquid products do. So I guess I will have to buy two tubes in the future.

My go to moisturiser - 24-10-2018 by

I've never had an issue having used this product for a long time. It's a perfect finishing product to lock other products in, or great on its own if you're in a rush. One of my staple products.

Beautiful, non greasy product - 23-10-2018 by

Loved this product as use it after serums have been applied and use this moisturiser prior to Primer. Quickly absorbed, non greasy or shine and the added bonus of sunscreen - this makes the product so much more user friendly as I live in a humid part of Australia and can use this product and at a wonderful price

Great product and great value - 22-10-2018 by

Great moisturizer, quite thick but spreads into skin and is absorbed easily. Skin feels soft after application. I have quite dry and acne prone skin and this hast made me break out at all. After reading the reviews I thought this product might be really heavy and difficult to absorb but I haven’t found that to be the case at all. Really happy with this and will be buying the bigger tube next time!

Great Value - 19-10-2018 by

Wonderful product with a nice skinfeel. I find its great for preventing transepidermal waterloss, not so much just for dry skin.

Definitely use a HA serum underneath and then put this over the top to seal in the goodness!

HG Moisturiser! - 19-10-2018 by

I love this! I couldn't find a cream/moisturiser that didn't break me out or give me small bumps and I nearly gave up. Nearly. I am so happy I found this cream! It is hydrating, brightening and it smoothes and softens my skin. I love love this moisturiser and I will definitely be purchasing the bigger bottle as long as it stays on the market.

Great! - 19-10-2018 by

I have just tried this instead of my usual $85 moisturiser and I actually prefer this one!
I have sensitive combination skin with bouts of acne and eczema. This hasn't inflamed any of my issues. Goes on really nicely - feels a little thick on the skin to begin with but my dry patched soon soaked in the excess.

if you're after something cheap... - 19-10-2018 by

Nothing too special about this, and it doesn't last very long with the end product being pretty annoying to access. Didn't make me break-out and worked well in use with a serum.

Okay - 15-10-2018 by

it's okay but would not prefer this as a 'main' moisturiser. I apply this after my vitamin c or oil treatments at night for hydration purposes. The texture is a bit pearly so you need to emulsify it on your hand first.

Doesn't absorb well - 10-10-2018 by

I have dry skin and I thought this moisturiser would make a difference to my dry skin. However, it does the opposite. This product stays on top of my skin and I had to spread it out a few times before the white cream would disappear into my skin. I hope to find another moisturiser that is suitable for my dry skin.

Effective - 10-10-2018 by

I have been using for a month now and pleased to have found this brilliant brand. It's a brilliant moisturiser for my ageing , sensitive skin.

Good for dry skin - 09-10-2018 by

I have very dry skin with hormonal acne so I need a good moisturiser that won’t clog pores
Usually I am still dry after moisturiser, this left my skin plump and hydrated.

Great every day moisturiser - 05-10-2018 by

This is exactly what I wanted. It’s creamy without feeling heavy or clogging, and stops my skin from feeling tight and dehydrated. The formula is quite thick, so I warm it up between my fingertips before applying to my face so it spreads easier.

Perfect - 02-10-2018 by

I have recommended this moisturiser to lots of different people with lots of different skin types - can do no wrong. Beautifully moisturising and surprisingly light - leaves skin hydrated through the day. I have dry/sensitive skin and love love love this product.

Great simple moisturiser - 25-09-2018 by

Really good moisturiser to go over other Ordinary products. I wear it every night over the Granactive Retinoid Emulsion 2% and they work together really nicely. The granactive takes a while to sink in and this moisturiser has to be rubbed into the skin.

Weightless and moisturising - 17-09-2018 by

I have combination skin (oily t-zone and dry everywhere else) and found that the moisturiser did not feel heavy around my oily zones but it was moisturising enough for areas that would otherwise dry out.

Nice texture - 10-09-2018 by

I like this as a day time moisturiser as it has a lovely texture and doesn’t give me an oily t zone that I am prone too. I do use additional products at night as I feel very dry otherwise

Perfect amount of moisturising - 04-09-2018 by

When I over moisturise, I usually end up with an oily face by mid-day. When I under-moisturise, my face starts peeling off by mid-day. But with this product, I find that it moisturises my face and makes sure that it doesn't get really oily at all! My face does not seem dry or peel off either!

Super moisturising but super light! - 04-09-2018 by

I have always had to use thick moisturisers for my dry skin, but this one has fixed my dry skin without being heavy at all!

Not as impressive as other Ordinary products - 04-09-2018 by

I found this a little dense for my tastes- I prefer lightweight gel moisturisers and don't love this texture. Moisturises well, but I ran through the tube very quickly and won't repurchase

Great value for a daily moisturiser - 04-09-2018 by

I am using this with the ordinary buffet and have been for 6 months at night. I am pleased with the results. My skin is smoother - more hydrated and my makeup sits better on my skin. I have combination skin and this does not result in more oily skin. It is great value and gives me everything I need. I am very pleased.

Great for value - 04-09-2018 by

I have oily skin, and whilst I have found that this moisturiser doesn't really help with the oil production during the day (not much seems to), I do feel that it really hydrates the skin. I tend to use at night. Not super in love but will definitely repurchase considering the price tag!

Great everyday moisturizer - 31-08-2018 by

This is the perfect moisturizer for in the morning. It moisturizes the skin well and is great under makeup. I go through it quickly but for the price it's perfect!

Great, affordable moisturiser - 30-08-2018 by

This is a great general moisturizer for all skin types. I have combination skin and find that it hydrates the dry spots without making my T-zone feel oily. Amazing price and I'll happily keep repurchasing!

New discoveries! - 29-08-2018 by

I originally left a review ages ago saying that The Ordinary's NMF was OK, but it has a tendency to roll or pill because of all the silicones. However, I appreciated the fact that it was oil free for people with oily and combination skin types - like me. In short, I was pretty underwhelmed by NMF.

I have since discovered that the secret is to actually ADD oil to this! Yes, it seems counterintuitive if you are acne-prone, but adding a drop or two of rosehip oil drastically changes the texture of this moisturiser so that it no longer pills up on the skin if you've already layered a few silicones underneath. The oil also helps this absorb into the skin better, and not sit on the surface of the skin with a white cast, as it is prone to do.

So, in short, you can use this with any oil to customise NMF to your skin type - including oily skins. Deciem really should advertise this, as it completely changed my mind about the usefulness and quality of this moisturiser!

Does the trick - 28-08-2018 by

A good basic moisturizer, nothing amazing. Moisturizes and inst too oily. It has a thick creamy consistency. Absorbs easily into the skin. Great price.

Super Hydrating - 28-08-2018 by

This moisturiser is honestly amazing. It is so hydrating and leaves the skin really supple and renewed. It is incredible quality for the price! Will be using this one for a while

Love this moisturiser!! - 27-08-2018 by

I bought this to try as sometimes my skin feels really dry. I love it!! It feels really nourishing without being too heavy!! I will definitely be back for a big tube!!

Nice under makeup - 27-08-2018 by

I like this moisturizer for wearing under my makeup as I have an oily t-zone and this doesn't make it worse. It's not overly moisturizing but I still like using it in the morning

Lovely day moisturiser - 27-08-2018 by

Love using this under my makeup. Doesn't really smell and love that it has Hyaluronic Acid which I think we could all benefit from. Very smooth and nourishing... another beautiful product from The Ordinary.

I use it every day! - 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.

My favourite! - 23-08-2018 by

My go-to moisturiser. It is light, perfect over TO marula oil. Non-greasy and light and doesn’t leave the skin oily or dry. Great for my combination skin.

Loving The Ordinary Range - 22-08-2018 by

Nothing worse than applying thick and heaving moisturizer when you’ve had a shower. This product is light and absorbs quickly and perfect as one of the last steps in The Ordinary Skincare Regime. The value is great and would buy again.

Cheap and cheerful moisturiser - 22-08-2018 by

I bought this moisturiser after reading good reviews and I have been impressed and repurchased twice!

I have combination skin and was looking for a light moisturiser with some hard working ingredients and this fit the brief. it is great following a clay mask or treatment when my skin feels a little tight and needs a little extra moisture. I wear it nightly and it feels lovely, smells good and has never broken me out.

Perfect for everyday and layering with serums - 20-08-2018 by

This is a great moisturiser to have for layering over serums and other treatments. The consistency is a little thicker than other moisturisers in this price range and has worked perfectly keeping my skin hydrated in winter months.

Perfect day moisturiser for dry, aged skin - 20-08-2018 by

I love this moisturiser for daytime use. My sensitive skin feels hydrated. Recommend this product in combination with The Ordinary toner and serum.

Yessssss - 20-08-2018 by

Amazing. It feels like applying whipped butter to your face, as weird as that sounds it is amazing. I use this day & night as well as with the ordinary vitamin c powder. Would recommend it to anyone.

Perfectly practical - 20-08-2018 by

I have troubled skin (all the issues! Oily zones, dry patches, scars, discoloured areas,fragile and red as well as thickened skin and large pores),due to health issues and medication and I stumbled across this brand by accident And so glad I did!
This moisturiser works really well after the other products in the brand without overwhelming or making any particular issue flare up. Works well under makeup too!

Great cheap moisturiser - 18-08-2018 by

For the price it is 10/10 however I have very sensitive skin and find that this just doesn’t cut it alone. I generally alternate this daily with another moisturiser

Almost perfect - 17-08-2018 by

This is a lovely moisturiser & feels good on the skin, I’m only marking it down as it isn’t quite moisturising enough for me. I have to use this with the argan oil. If The Ordinary ever make a moisturiser like this but for dryer skin, I’m sure it will be perfect.

Second favourite product in The Ordinary - 17-08-2018 by

Greeeeeat stuff. Ply it on and you will see and feel your skin drink it up. I use this twice a day every day.
I sometimes really try to quench my skins thirst by putting the hyalronic acid plus B under it.
I've got difficult skin too. Continuous acne break outs, roseacea and I'm in my mid 40's. This is so calming and lovely to wear. I think this would sit just about every skin type though and I rate this better than The Buffet.

Best moisturiser - 17-08-2018 by

I love, love, love this product! I have combination skin that gets quite oily in spots but this is super hydrating and soaks in quick without leaving any kind of oily residue.

Too rich - 16-08-2018 by

I bought a lot of The Ordinary's products at once to give them a try and this was the only one I didn't love. I have oily skin and am concerned with ageing. This for me is a bit too rich and doesn't absorb well into my skin. I wish they had a light surface moisturiser as well.

Good but not great - 15-08-2018 by

Oily/combo skin

This moisturiser is fairly good. It does the job and I found my skin to be less tight/dry after usage. However, it was the texture of this product that I did not like.

My skin felt a bit unnatural after using the product. It felt as if I had used a silicon based primer- that velvety texture. This is not to say that the product is bad, but just that I prefer a more natural/dewy feel to my skin after moisturising.

Having said that, this product may be better for those with oily skin

Lovely Face cream - 13-08-2018 by

Texture is smooth and thick, but when you put it on your face is seeps into the skin and doesn't leave any residue . Very nice

great! - 13-08-2018 by

cheap price with good effect, after applying before sleep, my skin still moisturize in the next morning, very good hydration effect.
But only 30ml, next time i will try NATURAL MOISTURIZING FACTORS + HA 100ML with just 3 dollars difference.

The best moisturiser for sensitive skin - 09-08-2018 by

Great value.. very happy to see it is now available in the bigger 100ml tube.

Doesn't irritate my hyper sensitive skin. I struggle to find creams that dont give me a textural issue across my cheeks. I have been using this now for a year, no problems.

It will sit on the skin for a few seconds before absorbing completely. I find it benefits from being patted in with wet fingers.

I usually add another layer after about 15 minutes as it isnt a heavy or greasey moisturiser.

Nothing ordinary about this product - 09-08-2018 by

Has been a life saver during hot summer days, give my skin life again!

It’s better than the price you pay - 08-08-2018 by

It’s small and cheap but definitely does the job. I have very dry skin particularly in winter and this is s really great product for the face. I would not solely rely on just this product to fix dry skin. It’s important to incorporate other products such as oils (assuming your skin is as dry as mine). Use twice a day though and you’ll see good results

Love! - 07-08-2018 by

Absolutely in love with this moisturiser! It ticks all of the boxes in ensuring my skin is super hydrated, soft and glowy. I love to apply this at night and also underneath my make up. It gives my foundation a beautiful dewy look when worn underneath! Also it is so affordable for such a great product that is beneficial to my skin!

Miracle moisturiser for combo skin - 07-08-2018 by

I’m always skeptical when reading reviews because products just don’t gel with my combination skin. I always apply a moisturiser in the morning before priming and by the end of the day my skin feels itchy with the combination of products sitting on my skin. I decided to try products from The Ordinary after reading all the rave reviews and I’m so glad I did. This moisturiser is amazing as a makeup base (I’ve ditched my primer completely), I only need a pea sized amount and it absorbs straight into my skin leaving it feeling really hydrated. The bonus is I’ve been using this for a week and I haven’t felt that itchy feeling yet!

Functional but not amazing - 06-08-2018 by

No cons to this product for me but no real pros either.

Comes out of the tube quite thick but I found it to be a nice light moisturiser without any fragrance. Absorbs into my skin (sensitive with dry patches) quickly and easily but while it prevented dry patches, I didn't really feel the other areas of my skin were any softer or more hydrated.

Good moisturiser, great price - 02-08-2018 by

A really well priced hyalaronic acid moisturiser. This layers well over the top of The Ordinary serums like Niacinamide or Buffet. The only drawback: The tube doesn't last very long (4 weeks), but for the price I think that is acceptable.

Lovely moisturiser for a great price - 01-08-2018 by

I have combination skin - oily t zone with dry patches on my cheeks & can be a bit sensitive to new products.
I was a bit sceptical about this product, mainly due to the cheap price! I decided to purchase when my previous moisturiser ran out.
I was really surprised at how well it worked (I know I shouldn't of been as all the serums I have used by this brand have been great) - it feels really thick when applying and leaves skin feeling well moisturised, but not so much that I had big shiny patches.
I started using this in the thick of winter when my skin was a bit of a state after having a baby & it really helped leave my skin feeling moisturised and looking nourished (in previous winters I have ended up with dry patches on my cheeks from the cold).
I would definitely recommend this product, for the price you can't really go wrong!!

Super hydrating moisturiser - 31-07-2018 by

I have dehydrated oily acne prone skin and absolutely love this moisturiser it feels super soft on my skin and makes my skin feel plump and hydrated my only problems with this product is that it doesn't last long enough I go through a packet way to quickly

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!

very hydrating and smoothing!! - 24-07-2018 by

I have very sensitive skin and tend to get clogged pores with thick moisturizers but found that this one was amazing and didn't cause me to break out! for the price it is a miracle will definitely be repurchasing soon!! My dry spots under my eyes and on my cheeks due to dry skin in winter is almost all gone, this also doubles as my primer!

Not amazing but not bad - 17-07-2018 by

It is a good product but it works just as well as any other moisturiser I have used. I do find that if I use a touch too much it is very hard to work into the skin and can leave a white cast on the skin.
I try to only use a very small amount and that seems to help.

It doesn't wow me like other products from the brand but for the price I will probably continue to use it

The best moisturiser I have ever used! - 17-07-2018 by

This product is life changing! I am 31 and a flight attendant. I have struggled with hormonal acne and dryness for years and my skin has completely changed since I started using The Ordinary products. I use this all over my face morning and night. It is like I have new skin! My skin is brighter, hydrated and I rarely get pimples. So incredibly impressed and I have recommended this product to all my friends and family. The best skincare routine I have ever used.

Great moisturiser for my combination skin - 07-07-2018 by

I really like this moisturiser. It works really well on my combination skin in both winter and summer. Its a little bit thick but absorbs really well in to the skin. Not sure if I'd recommend to those with oily skin as its a little bit thick but it suits my skin type.

Not a fan - 05-07-2018 by

Not a fan. I didn’t notice any change in my skin. Felt softer I guess but didn’t really improve my texture or anything. It’s cheap so I guess if it does no harm it’s worth a try but wasn’t amazed by it

My favorite moisturizer - 02-07-2018 by

I use this as my basic, year-round moisturiser because it's so cheap, and has HA! I do need to treat my dry patches with a targeted, more intense moisturiser, but apart from that it's light and hasn't broken me out. Oh, and wears well under my BB cream :)

good value, simple moisturizer - 28-06-2018 by

This moisturizer is quite thick but surprisingly light. I have combination skin and this has worked well for me. I get just a little bit dry and this takes care of it, without ever making my skin feel oily.

I would definitely order the larger bottle next time, because this is a small dose and will go quickly in winter. Also, the price is impossible to beat.

Definitely moisturising - 27-06-2018 by

I wanted to try this as I often find moisturisers are never enough for my skin as I have dry skin and I use serums and oils underneath and although I can feel moisturised after an hour or two I can feel dry again. This thick cream definitely helps hold the moisture in and it's a definite keeper for me and you really don't need to use much as a little goes a long way so it will last longer than I thought it would which is a bonus as I can go through allot of moisturiser. The only issue I have had with this one is that the foundation I use doesn't sit well over it so I just use my other moisturiser when I'm going to wear makeup.

Excellent moisturiser - 26-06-2018 by

Definitely would recommend this moisturiser - it is one of the best I have ever used. Really moisturises while being super gentle on sensitive skin and I have never experienced break outs from it which means it doesn't clog my pores.

Great for moisturising dry skin! - 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

Good but not amazing - 21-06-2018 by

This product provides a decent amount of hydration to the skin however as someone with quite dry and sensitive skin it just didn't give my skin enough moisture it requires. I find myself having to put a thicker serum on top to add moisture. It didn't react with my skin which was great, I have tried other HA products and my skin did not like that. If you have combination/normal skin this would work perfectly!

Effective, affordable, great for all skin types - 20-06-2018 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.

Not for me :( - 19-06-2018 by

Really wanted to like this however the moisturising effects of this just weren’t enough for me (I do however have extremely dry and sensitive skin). The texture of this cream is nice and rich yet absorbs well into the skin and I would maybe reccomend people who hav oily to combination skin to give this a shot.

Great product and great price - 19-06-2018 by

Love this. Smells and feels a lot like the go-to moisturiser, for a fraction of the price. I have dry, sensitive-ish skin and I use this one morning and night. Great under makeup, does the job. Very happy.
