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.

Great all-rounder face cream - 13-06-2018 by

I'm loving this face cream and am ordering it for a second time. It goes on smooth, sits well under makeup and is great to use in addition to serums and sunscreen in the morning. I highly recommend it!

Great moisturizer for most skin types - 13-06-2018 by

I have combination skin and this moisturizer feels great and does an awesome job. If you have super dry skin though i would recommend something with a heavier consistency. I recommend this product to my friends and family, particularly ones with oily skin.

YASSSS - 06-06-2018 by

A little goes a long way with this moisturiser - it isn't very thick nor is it oily, has a very smooth, silky texture.
It's now my favourite moisturiser and it's super cheap too!!
I find that it works really well with the hyaluronic acid.

Super Affordable and Works Great! - 01-06-2018 by

I have combination skin, with an especially oily T-zone. This stuff is really hydrating for my dry cheeks without feeling heavy on my forehead and nose. It comes out of the tube really thick, so you think 'Oh no!', but it applies on smooth and is absorbed really well by skin. There's no amazing scent to this moisturizer, it smells a bit like sorbolene, but who needs fragrance. The 30ml tube is great for travel.

AMAZING - 30-05-2018 by

This has become my favourite moisturiser ever. I have really dry skin and this has been the best product for my skin. This moisturiser isn't greasy and sinks it after massaging into the skin. I love using this product in combination with The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid. I have gone through 3 tubes of this moisturiser and will continue to buy.

Nothing really special but I enjoy the brand - 17-05-2018 by

I hate moisturizers that contain sunscreen with a passion lol the smell, the feeling of it. I spend all day indoors so I only want to apply sunscreen when I know I'll be out doors. So to find a good everyday moisturizers that isn't a greasy, tacky mess is great. This is that. I can't find on the label whether it contains sunscreen but definitely doesn't smell or feel like it. The price isn't super appealing,$10 for 30ml isn't that great compared to other the ordinary products. Probably wouldn't buy again.

Just like expensive ones - 17-05-2018 by

Very nice. Soaks in fast, leaves me hydrated. 10/10.

Interesting... - 17-05-2018 by

This is an unusual moisturiser, in that it takes some time to absorb and dries to a matte finish. I imagine that it might be difficult layering multiple products (or makeup) with this, as the silicones might roll or pill. However, as the last step in my skincare routine at night, I have found this to be effective, but I am still a little bit on the fence about it due to the lack of absorbency. Still a good product with no negative side effects or breakouts.

Light - 14-05-2018 by

Very light and soft texture. Soaks into my skin so fast and doesn't leave me oily!

Nice for the Price - 11-05-2018 by

I usually have combination skin but at the moment I am using a benzoyl peroxide treatment that makes my skin very dry. This is a nice moisturiser, not oily and it makes my skin soft and supple, but it doesn't help much with how dry my skin currently is. I would definitely buy it again once my skin settles from the benzoyl dryness.

Light, perfect for combo/oily skin - 08-05-2018 by

A good moisturiser for my combo skin - effectively moisturises the drier parts of my face and doesn't irritate my oily T zone. I'll be repurchasing in the larger bottle.

Cheap moisturizer for young skin? Yes! - 08-05-2018 by

I'm 26 years old, with combo skin and I was using this product for a few years and looooovvvvveeeeddd it! I think it's a great basic, every day moisturizer, that did not cause me to breakout at all. That being said, you get what you pay for and if you're in search for something with a little extra oomph, this isn't it. I would recommend this to say anyone from the age of 17 - 25, that is just looking for a basic, cheap, go to moisturizer.

Not for me - 07-05-2018 by

Unfortunately this moisturiser just felt way too heavy or something and I just didn’t like the consistency of it.

Great product - 12-04-2018 by

I have mature, dehydrated skin that is prone to white heads in the morning from moisturizes. This product doesn't give me those white heads. It's texture is fantastic and melts into my skin quickly. I am using it morning and night and loving it.

quite good, great price - 12-04-2018 by

I like this product over the top of the HA serum, but it gives a "sweaty" feel to the face after applied. I have read online this is common/normal and it doesn't last long but worth mentioning. Wait at least 5 mins before layering it over the HA serum to avoid it balling up/pilling, and I prefer to pat it on vs rub it on. A little goes a long way!

Was expecting more - 11-04-2018 by

I was expecting a bit more from this product because of my love of everything else from the ordinary, however this moisturiser is just okay.
In fact I don't think I will be going back to it again unless my current moisturiser starts to cause breakouts.
Would be great for someone who suffers from acne using other moisturisers.

Not what I expected - 03-04-2018 by

I love the other The Ordinary products but not sold on this one. I didn't find that it really moisturized my skin any better than any other product. It actually left my skin feeling kind of tight and dry...not sure if it is just me.

Great and Light!! - 03-04-2018 by

Ive suffered from acne for years and this moisturiser doesnt break me out and provides enough moisture for most of the day. It does sweat off easily, I also refresh my face with rosewater mist in the afternoon as I start to feel some oilyness (its not a matte maintaining moisturiser) but it wont break you out and do the job you need to keep a healthy skin routine!

Great moisturiser - 03-04-2018 by

I got this after hearing a couple recommendations for it. I was hesitant as my skin can be fussy about what it will readily absorb and I hate feeling like I have a thick layer of cream on my face, but ordered 2 because I had a good feeling (and it’s out of stock in a lot of places). I’m glad I did! I actually really, really love it. It’s fairly lightweight, my skin soaks it up, it’s hydrating. It certainly doesn’t feel like I’ve got a thick layer on even if I apply it generously because my skin just soaks it up.

I have dehydrated skin, and I’m trying to repair the moisture barrier and get my face hydrated again, and so far this product is working wonderfully. Sometimes I’ll mix it with a few drops of TO Moroccan oil to have it last longer and I love the consistency. Even with oil mixed in it absorbs readily and leaves me feeling nice and soft.

excellent day moisturiser - 27-03-2018 by

I've only just come across this brand and thanks to adore beauty i did. just purchased my second natural moisturizing tube as i really loved the way my skin feels when i put it on. the only downfall is the size of the tube.

Reliable Moisturiser - 21-02-2018 by

This moisturiser is a solid performer for a range of skin types. I have normal to oily combination skin and this feels lovely on the skin after applying serums and it seems to seal the moisture in.

Ticks all the boxes! - 13-02-2018 by

I have combination as well as allergic sensitive skin. After reading reviews of how straightforward the formula of this moisturiser is and how effective, I made a purchase that I would not regret. A little goes a long way and besides from hydrating my face, it smooths out the dry patches from my allergy and treatment ointment.

A little goes a long way and besides from hydrating my face, it smooths out the dry patches from my allergy and treatment ointment.

So great! - 06-02-2018 by

This is fantastic, and such a great price! I’ve already bought it several times and bought it for my friends too. It has a nice texture, and doesn’t make my already oily skin go overboard in either winter or summer. The only other moisturisers I’ve tried that are this good were Thalgo and Dior- I could buy 20 of these for the price of one of those, and I bet they have unnecessary silicones to make them feel so good too. I would absolutely recommend everyone try this.

Practically perfect in every way - 06-02-2018 by

Second purchase and I will not hesitate to buy again. I have oily but dehydrated, sensitive skin and this moisturiser is perfect under makeup (with or without primer) and cheap as chips to boot.

Best moisturizer I have EVER used!! - 06-02-2018 by

This is hands down the best moisturizer I have ever used! I have very sensitive, very very dry skin and this is the only thing I have found works so far. I use it every day, it soaks into my skin and actually moisturizes it!! Rather than just sitting on top and being washed off like most others do.

No no no - 20-12-2017 by

Im 31, i have normal and a bit dry on winter time. I purchase this as on the winter. This moisturiser is on a heavy cream side. It is sticky too. I didn’t like it as it’s too heavy on skin. Will be good for people who is very dry skin. And people don’t like heavy feeling on their skin, stay away.

Absolutely Love this moisturizer for my oily skin - 13-12-2017 by

As an oily skin person I never really moisturized my skin as I thought this would make it oilier.I was wrong since using this moisturizer I have found that my skin is actually dehydrated and that my makeup stays a lot longer when using a moisturizer. It does not feel think on my skin and absorbs within a couple of minutes. The tube makes it super easy to come out however also due to the tube you may think that you're finished however make sure you cut open the package and you'll get a lot more product out.

Definitely recommend this to anyone with oily skin

Wanted to love it - 12-12-2017 by

Love the hylamide and ordinary serums! I Really wanted to add this moisturizer onto my list since it was so cheap and reviews were good,but unfortunately it did nothing for me. My cheeks are sensitive and the driest part of my face, usually if I want to test if a moisturizer is good i slather it on my cheeks however I slathered this on over my serums and my skin still felt like sandpaper :(

Perfect! - 12-12-2017 by

Amazing moisturiser! After going through so many different brands of moisturiser ranging from cheap supermarket to high end this one wins and I have already repurchased! I have oily and dry acne prone skin and this goes on easily and absorbs quickly and feels nice and light, and my face stays moisturised for a really long time, no break through dry patches!
If you’re thinking about it go for it, it’s cheap enough to take a chance on!

fixed the ever-flaky upper lip area - 03-12-2017 by

my upper lip area has been flaky for months now this seems to be the most effective moisturiser i've tried (and this is after trying creams with "barrier repair" in their name). it's a bit too heavy to use all over my face as the weather warms, but i'll keep using it on my dry patches.

Good for the price - 29-11-2017 by

Really good for the price. It always hydrates my skin really well and works well with other products like the hyaluronic acid. I find that it does pill sometimes but that doesn't bother me too much. Will continue to buy

Pills like nothing I have seen before - 22-11-2017 by

So I am loving pretty much every Ordinary product I get my hands on - except this one. I figured Id get it as who doesnt need more moisturiser at some point right? So I've used it a number of ways. By itself - its fine - sinks in and does a good job of hydrating - but dont even try to add anything else under or over it because it pills like nothing Ive seen before. It pilled with my sunscreen, it pilled with my Vit C (I use moisturiser to dilute the Vit C as it chemical burns my skin otherwise) and with Niacinamide. It even pills if I put this on in the morning with nothing else and then 9 hours later put sunscreen on! It doesnt seem to play well with others. I have way better results from my basic Sukin moisturiser - which is cheaper (which I will stick to, I just figured I would try this one).

I gave it 2 stars because on its own it does the job and leaves my skin feeling nice - it absorbs well and isnt greasy, but will not repurchase.

Good product but my tube was half empty! - 15-11-2017 by

This is a decent moisturiser; it does exactly as it describes. It is light, non greasy and leaves my skin feeling plump. However, my tube felt as if it was full of air and hardly had any product in it!

Love it - 14-11-2017 by

This is such a beautiful silky moisturiser, it goes on so well and gives such a beautiful radiant look to the skin and keeps it hydrated all day

Make this product work for you - 13-11-2017 by

I originally found this a little too heavy to use daily but then I started mixing it with the vitamin c suspension. This combination is incredible! The moisturising factor improves the texture of the vitamin c and allows the benefits of both products to be delivered in a form which absorbs quicker and is much nicer to apply. It is very moisturising and is worth the money! Would just like it to come in a larger size!

Need the larger size already! - 13-11-2017 by

I've had extremely dry skin all year, and this has been the only moisturiser that effectively hydrates my skin well enough without making me oily. I want to love this, but I go through one of these small ones every few weeks... hopefully the 100mL version is restocked soon.

Perfect for my combination skin - 02-11-2017 by

This moisturiser has honestly become my holy grail. I had dry patches on my forehead and nose yet it was still somehow oily but this has solved all my problems along with a few other The Ordinary products. I can't even begin to explain how worth it these products are if you do your research and work out what is best for your skin type!!

It's Okay... - 01-11-2017 by

I only ended up using this product sparingly at night time as it was too thick and heavy for my dehydrated oily skin. Although I most probably won't repurchase this product it didn't aggravate my skin either. Dry skinned people would probably benefit more.

A bit too heavy for oily skin - 31-10-2017 by

I have oily/combo skin and my T zone and forehead tend to get really oily throughout the day. Even thoughI only use it during winter time, it's still a bit too heavy for me in day-time. Anyway, it didn't mess up with my acne and didn't cause me breakout.

Good but not great - 26-10-2017 by

Good, but I prefer using the straight TO HA 2%, with a lighter moisturiser. This felt too heavy for my skin.

A moisturiser that ACTUALLY moisturises?! - 25-10-2017 by

Yes, it actually makes your skin feel moisturised and for longer than 5 minutes! (Unlike some other moisturiser I know..)
It doesn’t leave a film on your skin. It lasts all day, had a great thick consistency, no overwhelming frangrance, improves texture and has helped my dry skin dramatically..
So you get the whole picture, my skin is very dry and oily. Very textured and lots of discolouring. With a few other products (salicylic acid 2%, the buffet & argireline 10% solution) my skin has improved already, within 2 weeks. Do research what regime will work for you and you won’t regret it. The ordinary is the best skincare I have ever been with and it’s true love.

Love it! - 25-10-2017 by

I am loving this mostiruiser. A tiny bit goes a long way. It isn't oily.
It is working well in combination with The Ordinary Buffet, which is also a favourite.
My skin is looking great.

Great product - 12-10-2017 by

I purchased several of The Ordinary products and have been very impressed with their quality & effectiveness. This moisturiser in combination with The Buffet has made a real difference to my mature, combination skin. It's been particularly effective in clearing up some dry patches that I've been trying to get rid of for ages. I certainly won't be going back to the expensive products I've been using in the past.

Absolutely hydrating - 12-10-2017 by

I LOVE this! I find it hydrating for my skin. I have dry skin, and I can feel that hydrating feeling as I put this product on. It doesn't give me any break outs, so I am very pleased. And the price is great too!

Left my skin feeling a little dehydrated - 02-10-2017 by

I liked this product because it had a nice emollient feel yet was light however my skin still felt 'thirsty'
For someone with no skin issues, looking for an inexpensive summer moisturiser this would be fine

Good for the price but nothing amazing - 27-09-2017 by

I have normal skin and the product isn't oily and is quite nice on the skin. However, would be best for summer not winter when less moisturiser is needed. If you like quite a bit of moisture this probably isn't for you and you would use it quite quickly if purchased.

My new holy grail - 25-09-2017 by

This has an almost thick whipped like texture, you only need a small amount- it applies quite thick but just melts into your skin. Once it is completely absorbed, it is AMAZING! I have extremely dry skin and this hydrates and leaves my skin so smooth. It is amazing before applying make up too. I will probably order 10 bottles at a time from now on because i never want to run out!

Not moisturizing enough - 22-09-2017 by

This was not as effective as I had hoped. I imagine it's probably good for normal skin, but for dry skin I still found it was lacking,especially on my forehead and between my brows.

Good - just not perfect for me - 18-09-2017 by

This is a great moisturizer. No nonsense, does great things for your skin. My skin feel soft and smooth after using this, and with continued use has made me feel a definite improvement in my skins appearance over all.
On my dry/combo skin I did have a few issues. I had a few moments of looking 'oily' after an hour or so which doesn't usually happen for me. Also it ia verrryyyy thick. A little does go a long way but it isnt that simple to spread around.
Not my perfect product, but not bad either!

Good for the price - 15-09-2017 by

I can't really complain about this moisturiser as it does what it says on the box. And for this coin, it is great. But I have slightly dry skin and while it does moisturise, it doesn't leave my skin feeling overly hydrated or plump as my usual moisturisers do. But for this price point it's a great product to have in between some more expensive brands.

Amazing! - 15-09-2017 by

I have never had dry skin until this past winter and I have never been a big moisturiser fan as I felt my oily, temperamental skin never reacted well to it. Enter The Ordinary Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA!

It is light enough to make a definite difference yet not clog my pores. Use on top of The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid for ultimate all day moisture! I will never use another moisturiser! LOVE LOVE LOVE!

My favourite The Ordinary product! - 12-09-2017 by

I've just recently started my "Ordinary Skin Care Journey" and out of all the products I use, this is my favourite!!! I use it in the morning after all my serums (at night I use the Rose Hip Seed Oil) and I love how silky, smooth and hydrating this moisturiser is! I am a combination skin type prone to congestion and acne (oily T-zone & normal cheeks) and it is the perfect amount of moisturiser for me!

Good moisturiser but needs an extra layer before make up - 12-09-2017 by

This product works well as a moisturiser on its own. It's light and non-greasy and the packaging is attractive. I really like the other The Ordinary products, so I wanted to think the best of this, but I can't fully endorse it.
I like my moisturiser to double as a primer, and this doesn't sit very well under my makeup: it seems to react, causing it to lump up rather than blend in, unless I put another layer between it and the make up. A similar thing happens with The Ordinary's HA + B5 serum, so I assume it's to do with the HA ingredient?
This has never happened with any other moisturiser I've used, and it's a bit frustrating that you can't just slather it on and then proceed with your makeup routine. However as a post-work out moisturiser, or if you're not wearing makeup, it works fine.

Moisturiser for people who hate moisturisers - 07-09-2017 by

This baby leaves your skin feeling soft and hydrated without the sticky feeling. It has completely changed the feel and look of my skin after only a week of using it. It is inexpensive and travels well. 10/10 would recommend.

Best Product - 03-09-2017 by

Very smooth and hydrating and fantastic as all the hype

GREAT AND LIGHT WEIGHT - 22-08-2017 by

Overall the product is very light weight and does give some moisture. Although wouldn't recommend for those with super dry skin that are used to extremely thick hydrating products as it wasn't moisturising enough for me and i would have to put another face cream on top.

Not so ordinary - 18-08-2017 by

This is a lightweight yet hydrating cream that didn't inflame even my sensitive skin. Works well under makeup although it does not have a sunscreen. I use it after Buffet serum am and pm and my skin is looking the best it has in years. I use a dab of coconut oil as well if my skin is feeling extra parched but it is hydrating enough on it's own for me most of the time. You can't beat the price either!

Budget buy that works a treat - 07-08-2017 by

I was looking for a moisturiser to use at night that didn't have an SPF. The Ordinary caught my eye because of their no-nonsense marketing and great price point. I usually opt for luxe skincare but I'm trying to find budget friendly alternatives, that still perform. This moisturiser does the trick perfectly without breaking the bank. I find it absorbs quickly and is non-greasy. I'm usually combination skin type but in winter I get more dry than oily. I think if you have a particularly dry skin you will need to use a hydrating serum underneath, like hyaluronic. Think of this moisturiser as the coat to your outfit.

It's good, but not the best - 25-07-2017 by

Ok, so first, I can't really complain because I could buy 20 of these things for the price of the moisturiser I normally use. On that front, it gets a 10 out of 10.

That said, I don't think it's the right moisturiser for me. I think I need something more targeted at dye skin. And to be honest, I can't get used to the texture - a bit zinc-like and a bit whipped creme-like.

I really hope they release more targeted moisturisers, like their huge (and excellent!) range of serums. I'll be the first in line. But I don't think I'll go for this one again.

Dreamy! - 23-07-2017 by

Love this moisturiser, I'm onto my second bottle. So cheap but the quality seems exceptional!
I use it in the mornings over a few drops of The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 5%. Works really well mixed with my sunscreen also.
I have combo skin prone to large pores and breakouts. My skin has never felt so soft and stays hydrated all day without looking shiny. This brand has an awesome range, going to try the Vitamin C next!

It works! Light and sinks right in to skin. - 16-07-2017 by

I'm loving the whole range of The Ordinary! Honestly, it's making a visible difference to my skin. I would normally not choose a moisturizer like this one as it is VERY light and doesn't seem heavy enough for my super dry skin. However, when I use it as the last layer over the serums (currently using The buffet and the Matrixyl serums), it really hydrates and plumps up my skin! Amazing. There is no greasy feel and it just sinks right in. I've never used anything like it. I love the simple packaging and it's a small size which travels well. Would definitely repurchase again and again.

great product - 08-07-2017 by

Only been using for just over 3 weeks, i'm in my late 50's and so far my skin feels great, used together with other Ordinary products that iv'e purchased, has plumped up my skin and feels very soft

Great for dry skin - 16-06-2017 by

I have dry skin, that can easily become flaky in the winter. This moisturizer is great at managing the dryness but at the same time it isn't thick or greasy and absorbs well into the skin. It sits well under makeup.
