Facial moisturizer for combination skin is a type of moisturizer that is designed to hydrate and nourish the skin without making it feel greasy or oily. This type of moisturizer is usually light in texture and can be easily absorbed by the skin.
It is often formulated with hydrating ingredients such as glycerin or hyaluronic acid, as well as other skin-nourishing ingredients such as vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.

Love the smell and that its very light weight, almost like a serum. I have oily skin most of the time (sometimes combo) but last year for a short time I suddenly had dry flaky & itchy skin patches and found out I suffered from skin dermatitis.
Being sensitive to a lot of ingredients, I started researching skin care products & their list of ingredients to find something more natural and safer for my skin. This hit the mark, so I ordered from Sephora to try it out.
This is fantastic that it doesn’t make me oilier or feeling greasy on my oily days ( a little drop, 1 to 2 pumps goes a long way). I honestly use it as a serum most of the time for my nighttime routine, as it’s so lightweight, I can add a moisturizer over it without getting greasy.
I really feel like it gives me a nice brighter & naturally light from within kinda glow to my skin, without feeling like my skin is too dewy/shiny (being that I usually have oily or combo skin, I don’t want added shine, so this is just perfect!) and it helps soften my skin too.
I can’t say it reduces redness though (at first I felt like it did, but not so much anymore, but for the smell, the moisturizing/softness, brightness and glow, I do love this!) As for that dermatitis issue of severe dryness I was having when I started with this product, within a week it went away with this serum! Granted I also switched the facial cleanser I was using, but the combo I think really helped and this is now one of my favorite products to use in my skin care routine.
I was very hesitant on buying this as I get so anxious trying new products. I have pretty sensitive skin and I have been normally using the Belif creams for moisturizer but was getting a bit bored of my skin care ritual & wanted to shake things up.
I really do love Glow Recipes packaging- it’s always good quality and sturdy, lotions come with pumps that don’t quit on you so that’s a bonus! The scent is beautiful, it’s a very light watermelon whiff- perfect to wake yourself up on a summer morning.
The lotion is very light and a little goes a long way. It doesn’t leave an oily feeling and it’s not a thick lotion so it doesn’t feel heavy. However, after you first apply it, it does seem to stay a bit “tacky” on the skin, almost sticky.
That does go away as it absorbs into the skin & I personally only use it at nighttime, but if you were using it in the morning you’d want to wait about 10 minutes before applying primer or makeup on top of this.
As far as keeping my face hydrated it has done a wonderful job throughout the summer. I have zero dry patches and my skin looks even. I also love that it doesn’t get slimy or gross feeling as you sweat throughout a hot day.
My one fear is that it might be a bit too light for a winter moisturizer, at least for myself personally, and I have combination skin, more so on the dryer side. I definitely recommend trying this product!.
Wow the dew drops are amazing but this moisturizer is perfect for my skin(combo to oily). It’s lightweight, like a serum, feels so good while applying it. It leaves my skin plump and hydrated, not oily feeling.
I love it, it surprised me. I got these two in a set for $22 on Sephora, the glow recipe sets and all of the others have outrageous deals! I got the 25ml (mini) of this moisturizer and 10ml of the niacinamide dew drops, highly recommend both.
After trying this, I’m definitely going to repurchase. I’ve been trying to find a good moisturizer for my skin, one that I’ve been using is the elf holy hydration face cream. It’s affordable but it’s not as lightweight as this and it leaves my skin a little oily feeling at first, I can’t use much of it.
Unlike this one. I also heard the tatcha water cream is great for combo skin, I’m yet to try it but I’ve heard the dupe for it is the Neutrogena hydroboost. But this formula is amazing, it doesn’t leave your face as glowy as the dew drops but I imagine used together, it will.
I haven’t used both together yet. But if you have combo to oily skin and want to try these out, this set is perfect for you!.
Hydrate, plump & balance skin with our new whipped hyaluronic acid gel plum cream moisturizer that fills each skin layer with long-lasting, plumping hydration for a dewy glow. Skin-Balancing. Quick-Absorbing.
Non-Greasy. Meet your new favorite moisturizer in a first of its kind refillable jar. Powerhouse ingredients polyglutamic acid, multi-weight hyaluronic acid, plum, and ice willowherb provide deep, long lasting hydration while balancing excess oil to deliver plump, glowing skin.
I’m not a big fan of expensive moisturizers with fragrance anymore, I prefer to stick to simple, derm grade skincare like LRP from the drugstore. I was able to get a sample of this with my purchase and I am so glad I did.
I fully understand the hype now. My skin is super dry and I have a hard time finding a moisturizer that hydrates, replenishes and moisturizes my skin without breaking me out. This one just feels so nice starting from the texture, how it feels when it’s applied, when it’s dried down, everything.
It smells amazing but the fragrance in it or the product itself hasn’t broke me out which is amazing. I’m not sure how to describe the consistency either but it feels very cloud like, soft, and lightweight but deeply hydrating.
I’m def considering buying the full-size now, the only reason why I took 1 star off is because of the price point but it’s Glow Recipe and all their products are around this price range. If you’re willing to splurge on a good moisturizer this one is an amazing option.
Also a huge bonus, it looks and feels amazing under makeup which is a plus point for me because I usually buy one for wearing underwear makeup and one for when i don’t wear makeup. So the fact that this feels beautiful under makeup is awesome.
Some people say it pills if you use too much but I use a good amount and I haven’t that had that issue.
Garnier Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel-Cream offers a lightweight non-greasy gel-cream that delivers the perfect balance of moisture, for combination skin types. It soothes and refreshes as it instantly penetrates adding essential moisture to your skin.
The first time I use the pore perfecting serum cream, I applied it immediately before going outside to tan because it contains SPF30. My face was extremely slick with grease once I got outside in the heat.
Luckily I was just tanning to get colour and not seeing people or else I would have been very embarrassed with my appearance. I like that it is vegan, has SPF and is a serum/cream combination. Maybe it would be better for the winter because it is too greasy for the hot sunny summer for me, even though it has a light texture.
I am surprised it is for oily/combination skin. There is a slight sunscreen smell and I think the greasiness I felt was also mostly from the sunscreen addition. I guess this would be good if you are going for the dewey look…but it definitely came out as greasy on me.
I like the pump top that has a twist to lock and unlock so you can’t accidentally pump out the product when not in use. #gotitfree #trywithtopbox.
I received the Garnier Green Labs Pore Perfecting Serum Cream for free from @Topbox in exchange for my honest review. My skin is very dry and I constantly need to use some type of moisturizer. This product is great because it provides 24 hour moisturizer and it has SPF 30 which is fantastic as it performs as a dual effect.
I no longer have to apply a moisturizer and then separately add SPF as this can be applied to your face in just one step. My skin felt hydrated and soft and the scent was pleasant and light. The texture was smooth and silky and not heavy or greasy.
With just one pump, I had enough coverage on my face for a full day. I would definitely recommend this to friends and family and plan on purchasing this in the future. Thanks @topbox and @garnier for allowing me to test this product for free in exchange for my honest review.
I’ve used this sunscreen for a few months now. It takes a bit to absorb and makes me look a little greasy for a little while and has a bit of a white cast, but eventually evens it out. The only problem I’ve had with it is that it’s been pilling on my face which looks disgusting.
However I do like the convenience of having a 3-in-1 and adding some extra moisture to my face. It’s also one of the only SPF’s I’ve tried that hasn’t caused me to break out. Overall, just kinda decent.
Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel is a refreshing light facial gel. Developed by dermatologists, oil-free and restores skin moisture balance. When the skin is in balance, it is neither dry nor greasy, but feels comfortable.
Cliniques 3-step system is a unique cleaning system consisting of 3 products designed to clean the skin free of dirt and impurities, exfoliates, and aligning the skin. The result of these 3 steps resets your skin so it’s completely ready for your daily skin care routine.
I bought a small bottle of this moisturizer off of Amazon to try in 2020/2021, and I LOVED it. I’ve used it every day, every night, through every season. It fully absorbs in just 1-2 minutes, makes my skin feel hydrated, has a light consistency with great spreadability.
I also struggle with acne, and this moisturizer didn’t make me break out. It’s now 2022 and I’ve gone through two 125ml bottles. However, here’s why its 4 stars for me and not 5: 1. The bottle design.
When I start to run low, I can see in the bottle that there’s a decent bit of product left in there but it’s not enough for the pump to pick it up so I have to strategically shake the bottle and use my fingers to try and get any product left over but it’s so difficult.
2. It’s not moisturizing enough for the winter, my cheeks would get really dry and this moisturizer did nothing for it (makes sense bc this moisturizer is for oily-oily combo skin). 3. The price. I’ve determined to find an alternative for this moisturizer that doesn’t cost as much.
I’ve bought two Korean moisturizers in hopes of finding one similar to Clinique in consistency and absorption time, but Clinique continues to reign supreme. The two Korean moisturizers I bought were the Purito Deep Sea Pure Water Cream and Cera-Heart My Type Duo Cream by Axis-Y, and both of those don’t absorb into my skin as quickly as Clinique does, and they leave my skin feeling a little tacky for awhile before they actually absorb.
But that doesn’t mean I’ll stop looking for an alternative to Clinique. Until I actually do find one, I’ll keep coming back to Clinique for a moisturizer every single time. Overall, I still really like this moisturizer and I highly recommend it to anyone with oily to oily combination skin.
Look as young as you feel. This intensely nourishing, youth-infusing creme brings out skin that is radiant, plumped, supple – more resilient. Includes an advanced Tri-Peptide Complex, shown by in vitro testing to help significantly amplify collagen by 124% in just 3 days, for skin that looks and feels smoother.
With broad-spectrum SPF 15 and anti-oxidants, it helps prevent collagen degradation and sagging from environmental aggressors, supporting skin in maintaining its natural firmness and tone. And, with innovative IR-Defense Technology, it helps defend skin’s moisture barrier against damage caused by infrared rays.
Skin is plumped and radiantly alive. Intensely moisturized all day. Wrinkles appear significantly reduced. Skin looks smoother. The Normal/Combination skin creme is silky, refreshing. The Dry Skin creme is lavishly rich.
I just received a jar of this as a gift with purchase from Estee Lauder. My main focus for my medium to olive combination skin is anti-aging. This includes wanting to increase firmness, reduce uneven tones and spots, prevent wrinkles.
I really like this cream. I am devoted to Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Life and Firm Day Cream. But this is also a very high performing face cream. I always use my face creams on my throat and under my chin.
But this product’s labeling actually tells you to do that. Light scent, creamy, rich, moisturizing, improves skin tone, and works well under make up or without. I am not a super big fan of the jar packaging for obvious reasons (exposure to light, dust, etc) But I am happy with this.
Price point is rather high, but in the same ballpark with the Elizabeth Arden product I normally use.
I was gutted to find out you have dis-continued what in my opinion is your BEST Skincare product, Advanced Timezone. I’ve worn it since it came out and it always left my skin glowing & youthful. Over the years I’ve tried your other products such as Daywear, Revitaslising Supreme etc and nothing compared.
I was advised to try Resilience Multi Effect instead, I didn’t have much faith as previously trying Resilience Lift and I didn’t like it. Resilience Multi Effect has been a waste of money for me. It has a Pinkish hue to it when applied to the skin, and does not absorb well.
Feels thick and heavy, total opposite to Advanced Timezone which was beautifully light and absorbed so well. On first using it I came out in red spots when I never get spots or have ever had acne before.
It also is a dreadful base for Double Wear. The Double Wear just doesn’t sit well on top, it rubs off in sticky balls, I end up looking like I’ve got some flaky skin condition. It is drying too and does not give a glow to the skin like Advanced Timezone always did.
Please bring back Advanced Timezone, it was the perfect Skincare product, I simply can’t understand why you would stop selling one of your BEST products. This is so poor in comparison. I can send you pictures of how it rubs off like a flaking skin condition if need be.
I received this product as gift from my mother in law during Christmas and I fell in love immediately. It smells wonderful, good for all skin types and did not cause my skin to break down. Application is effortless.
Quick and it gives you an immediate glow. It contains tri-peptides, which is a combination of various peptide complexes designed to maintain skin’s youthfulness, which is a plus for this 37yo old mama.
I know it is a pricey product, but I use it 4 times a week on my face and neck (keep in mind started using after Christmas time) and I still have around half bottle. It does last a long time. I’m sure I’m going to continue to use because you can clearly see the benefits of it.
The days of leathery skin being viewed as sexy skin are over. Everyone knows the benefit of using a daily moisturizer with sun block. UVA and UVB rays from the sun reduce skin elasticity and hasten aging.
The Jack Black Double-Duty Face Moisturizer blocks UVA and UVB rays with SPF 20 protection and a lightweight moisturizer hydrates your skin and improves the appearance of your skin without making it oily.
Love it. Great after a shave with Supreme Cream. Nice clean feel and scent. Minor quibble with the dispenser. On the one hand, I like having a pump but the amount dispensed with each pump is really small.
I wind up using like 7-8 pumps for each application. The product itself is first-rate, though.
Melissa Day Cream effectively cares for combination skin. Oily areas are calmed, dry patches are hydrated, the appearance of redness is reduced, and shine is controlled for a balanced, radiant complexion.
Extracts of melissa, daisy, anthyllis, witch hazel and carrot soothe, working to balance the skin’s natural oil and water content. Tapioca starch provides an even, matte appearance. For oily skin.
This has such a refreshing, vibrant scent that absorbs quickly but still makes you feel “awake” when applied. I’m posting some pics of how much I used every single drop of this day cream. I loved it so much I bought my mama some and now I have to go visit her to steal it back.
The main notes of the scent are citrus. I used it on days when I needed more hydration than Tatcha water cream could provide and it works wonderfully for that. It’s not greasy or heavy but you can definitely feel it when you apply it.
I recommend waiting a few minutes after application before adding on primer and makeup to let it fully absorb.
I like this day cream. It does have a natural scent, but it’s not overpowering. It is very moisturizing, which is great for my dry skin, especially in the fall. I don’t like the packaging, since it tends to break at creases and create a hole for product to leak out of.
I used this product throughout high school after it was recommended to me by an esthetician for my combination skin. My skin has since changed so I no longer use it. Highly recommend, though. Not too thick but locks in moisture without clogging pores.
Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel instantly quenches dry skin and keeps it looking smooth, supple and hydrated day after day. Our award-winning and best selling water gel formula absorbs quickly and instantly delivers intense hydration.

Plus, its an oil-free moisturizer, so you can wear it alone or under makeup as a smooth, velvety primer.
This cult-classic moisture “drink” developed by Clinique’s dermatologists maintains optimal moisture balance for very dry skin or comfortable to oily skin in the T-zone.

Help moisturize your combination skin effectively with Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisture for Combination Skin. This lightweight, dual-action formula moisturizes dry areas while it controls oily shine, leaving skin feeling softer and smoother.
With oil-absorbing system, this moisturizer is clinically proven to control oil and shine in the T-zone, or wherever skin is oily for a natural, matte finish all day. From the #1 dermatologist-recommended brand, this formula is oil-free and won’t clog pores.
When I first thought about a moisturizer, I wondered how am I going to carry it off? Nobody likes the GREASY look! Oily-skinned people have to go through so many problems. I have a combination skin which does end up being oily many a times And the t-zone? The bottle read “Neutrogena Oil-free moisturizer “ for “Combination Skin.
” All I could see was the “Combination Skin” part. It says you’re supposed to apply one “PUMP” to your neck and your face. When I first applied it, I felt a bit oily, but in 20 sec it was all gone. All I got was a MATT FINISH! I was SHOCKED! My skin looked fine, perfectly smooth, with no sign of oiliness.
You can also use it as a Makeup-base. It works really well! All you need is one PUMP, and it lasts forever, Trust me. That is a lot for the price you pay. They also have a moisturizer for sensitive skin.
This product blends into your skin, and it doesn’t leave any residue at all. I wouldn’t call it pricey at all. According to me, this product is the best one from their side Purchase this product only if you have oily or combination skin.
People with dry skin won’t be satisfied with the product. So I guess this was what I felt about this product.

Hi! I was looking for a new daily moisturizer for combo skin (Im on the oily & sensitive side). I chose this one based on ingredients and great reviews. I used it for 2 weeks once a day. Sometimes twice.
The scent is kinda like baby powder. The texture is like a regular body lotion but for the face. The first day I applied it my face got really red for about 1 minute and burned (a burn with a cool feel).
It took about 2 minutes to soak in & left me shiny but I pressed on. I thought my skin needed time to adjust. But after two weeks, everytime I applied it, it was the same reaction. My skin was a little less oily over time but it did make my redness worse.
A little disappointed but I know we all have different skin reactivity. I hope this review helps others!.
I have used this for years. I love the feeling of smoothing it on each morning – it is light weight and spreads on smoothly with a very light touch. It never feels oily or sticky. It has a very mild fresh scent that is unobtrusive, doesn’t complete with any perfume I use.
Even at the end of the day, my face still feels hydrated and very smooth. I can’t imagine changing to a different product or brand.
While visiting Israel almost seven years ago, I found Ahava moisturizers, lotions and shampoo. They’re the best products I have ever used. Also, Lots of things I have tried are irritating and make my sensitive skin break out into a rash.
Not Ahava, though. It’s never greasy feeling and feels SO good on my skin. And only a very bit of it is quite sufficient to last all day, so it turns out to be less expensive than one realizes. Finally, I was delighted to find a source for Ahava; I won’t use anything else.
A radiance-making moisturizer with revitalizing teasel extract to fight the effects of daytime stress for glowing, healthy-looking skin. This cream-gel formula minimizes the appearance of fine lines and boosts skin’s radiance.
It contains Clarins exclusive anti-pollution complex and is powered by teasel extract to deliver targeted revitalizing and antioxidant action to where your skin needs it most.
The formula truly is quite luxurious and hydrating, yet it doesn’t feel greasy or heavy on the skin. Unfortunately I think the fragrance/plant extract irritated my skin. It smells of light florals (which I imagine to be the wild teasel plant): an inoffensive creamy, floral musk with a hint of faint apple (like a real apple, not artificial apple scent).
The scent is nice but I noticed mild stinging and redness of my cheeks & nose upon applying, as well as an itchy spot on my cheek. I used it as step 3 over 2 of my normal products and haven’t noticed any pilling, which is nice.
I’ll be washing it off now, though, due to the irritation. I think this would be lovely for non-irritable skin, as it is visibly hydrating and I’m impressed by the lack of pilling (even while I’m trying to rub it to test).
I’d still recommend it to someone who has normal/nonsensitive skin.
Indicated for sensitive, mixed to oily skin. Apazigua, repairs and protects the skin barrier. Relieving action thanks to Vitamin B3. Glycerin provides a lasting hydration of up to 48 hours. It protects and strengthens the skin barrier thanks to the presence of prebiotics in its formulation.
Reduces skin discomfort by being enriched with La Roche-Posay Thermal Water. No perfume, no alcohol. Non-comedogenic. High tolerance, suitable formula for babies.
When I say I’ve tried over 30 different moisturizers, I’m not exaggerating. My beauty cabinet is a burial ground for rejected skin products. This is THE ONLY MOISTURIZER I can use that doesn’t exasperate my closed comedones.
It has minimal ingredients and thus is excellent if you have highly reactive skin like mine. It’s also oil & squalane free which is a virtually impossible to find in a fragrance and alcohol free product.
Although it is not quite as moisturising as I would like (if you have dry skin this probably won’t suffice) I have to use several pumps before I’m satisfied and thus go through a 40ml bottle quite quickly, I feel this is minor catch to an otherwise wonderful product.
(For those in need, my full routine consists of a double cleanse using Bioderma sensibio micellar water and gel cleanser, LRP SA cleanser twice a week to exfoliate, Paulas choice pore reducing niacinamide toner and lastly this moisturizer to top it all off.
For reference, my skin is combination – I have a relatively oily t-zone and then normal/dry cheeks and chin. I bought this when I was trialling some other new skincare products that ended up causing my skin to freak out and purge so I desperately needed something simple yet effective and that would keep my skin moisturised without exacerbating my oily areas and I have to say it’s done it’s job incredibly well.
For those saying this product isn’t moisturising enough (note the description states it’s for normal/combination skin), I’d recommend the Toleriane Sensitive Riche moisturiser instead as that’s a much thicker and creamier consistency.
Whereas the fluide moisturiser is more of a water-cream consistency meaning it’s pretty light and quickly sinks into the skin which is what I was looking for. I was concerned about the price as it was more than I’d usually pay for a moisturiser but I find I only need one pump (occasionally 1.
5) to cover my entire face and down onto my neck so whilst it does seem pricey, it definitely lasted a long time and I’d say I got my money’s worth from it. The only reason I’ve knocked a star off is because for some reason, my under eye area isn’t always a fan and occasionally stings if I use the moisturiser there.
As with all skincare though, it’s very personal and so it may just be the case that under my eyes is incredibly sensitive and not necessarily the fault of the product. I tend to use a thicker moisturiser for my under eye in any case.
Overall, I’d recommend for anyone with sensitive and normal to combination skin that is looking for a lightweight yet effective moisturiser.
I think I am now on my 7th bottle of this! I suffer with very very sensitive, combination, acne prone skin and this is by far the best moisturiser I have used. Its also the first moisturiser that doesn’t give me closed comedones which I frequently get with other ones! I also have roseacea and this has never made it worse (only topical treatments will fix it but it will not cause any flare ups).
It’s very light so works well for most of the year. It has a great short ingredient and has absolutely no alcohol or fragrance or essential oils in it. I may also add that if you suffer with fungal acne this is also fine for your skin as it is Malassezia safe.
I’d say if you have very dry skin this might not be enough moisture-wise but for normal to combination and even oily skin this is amazing. It doesn’t dry matte or too shiny it just leaves your skin looking healthy and hydrated.
The bottle is quite small (40ml) but I find a little goes a long way and one bottle will last me around 1 and a half months before I repurchase. It is quite expensive (definitely worth it) but escentual usually has it on sale for a good price! Overall I keep stocking up on it as it’s the only moisturiser that works- although that obviously is subjective as everyone has different skin.
Anyway I would definitely recommend people to try it if they haven’t found a good trustworthy simple but effective moisturiser yet!.
A lightweight fast absorbing facial moisturizer. Enriched with hydrating arnica aloe and lemon grass for moisture balance. Controls oiliness in the t-zone and reduces visible pores. Offers nourishment and uv protection to skin.
I have been faithfully using Pevonias exfoliating cleanser, and this cream for sooo many years and i will NEVER stop! My skin can be severely dry, combined with intermittent breakouts. while being SUPER sensitive.
This cream is soothing, hydrating, but leaves no greasy residue. I can use it just at night, or in the winter morning and night. From my first facial many many years ago, where they used Pevonia products, I was hooked.
I’d say it’s been maybe 10 years and I’m still obsessed and will ONLY use these products! (They smell amazing too!).
I’ve been away from the Pevonia line for 2 years. Tried others, just not satisfied. Taking a chance, I bought the Balancing Cream. It has exceeded my expectations. At the same time I bought the travel size set which I will use in Italy in the fall.
I will be feeling my way through the lines to purchase more.
I’ve been using Pevonia for over 30 years. I first starting using it after having a facial at an exclusive spa. In my youth I had severe acne and Started getting facials in my 20’s. I had life changing results with the phytogel.
At age 59 I still have some oily areas in the T-zone and the Combination Skin products are perfect for me. The essential oil scents are dreamy! I also use the Eye renew at night and the eye cream during the day.
I credit Pevonia products to my youthful looking skin. No one can believe that I am 59 and always guess my age to be in my 40’s. Thank you Pevonia! Denise.
La Roche-Posay Hydraphase Intense Light is an intense moisturizer with double-action technology formulated to hydrate and soothe your skin. This product ensures that water is infused into your skin, guaranteeing immediate hydration.
This advanced formula tightens cellular junctions to lock in the water so that your skin stays supple and fresh. Its non-greasy formula is easy and soothing to apply. This product is designed for both men and women with very dehydrated, normal to combination skin.
It is also suitable for sensitive skin. It is 100% hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic and paraben-free.
I have been testing this product for several weeks now and I’m pretty disappointed! I had very high hopes for this brand considering I have loved all their products in the past! First issue I had was that it doesn’t tell you specifically where this product is supposed to be used.
It just says apply daily, so I assumed that I could use it anywhere on my skin! I choose my hands since during the winter months I struggle with keeping them moisturized! The first time using it I was so excited! It smelled great and had a nice water based consistency! I noticed that it absorbed into my skin almost instantly which for me was a pain in the butt because I had to keep adding more to be able to make sure it was distributed evenly which took typically 3-4 pumps of product out of a small bottle just to coat all of my hands.
It felt nice for a period of time, but within hours I noticed the skin on my hands being all dried out again! This is supposed to fill the skin with moisture for 24 hours and that is not the case at all! It does plump skin and give the appearance of hydrated skin for a couple hours, but that is all! Definitely need to go back and look into this product more before putting it on the market or at least change the misleading description on the box! I would not spend $1.
Best face care product I have ever used! I tried this on a whim because my dry sensitive skin (prone to oily patches and large pores) was even drier than usual and nothing I had was helping. I didn’t want to get into winter and have the dreaded flaky skin, especially on the rare days I wear makeup.
Anyways, this lotion exceeds all my wants in every way. It is lightweight, non greasy, absorbs very quickly, and lasts all day. It has never caused the hair around my face to get greasy, a frequent issue of mine, nor caused my glasses to slide up and down my nose on an oil slick.
I do not leave face prints on my cell phone either. My skin has improved so dramatically in the last few weeks of using this that I am tempted to believe it’s a bit magical. My pores have visibly shrunk around my nose and cheeks.
always the worst area for me. My skin color has dramatically evened out and improved with much less redness. And, most importantly, I always feel hydrated now and don’t have any dry skin on my face. I have had zero issues wearing this under my makeup or applying liberally around the eye area.
I wish this product was available by the bucket so I could slather it everywhere!! (Although a couple tiny drops do the trick. don’t slather it on. ).
I received a week’s worth of these La Roche Posay (a division of L’Oreal Canada) packets to sample for this company. It is listed as a Prebiotic thermal water. A double repair moisturizer UV. I was surprised by the initial scent as it reminded me of Elmer’s Glue, no kidding.
The scent pretty much dissipates immediately. However the consistency is a nice serum quality, a little goes a long way and it blends into your skin and absorbs quickly. It left my face feeling smooth and silky, not at all tacky or sticky.
I will end up checking back in after a week to see what the results are. It does contain a 30 SPF in the moisturizer, but not truly enough sufficient amount for sunscreen protection in the sample packets, however in the regular size bottle there would be.
La Roche Posay is NOT cruelty free because their products are tested on animals where required by law (in mainland China). Additionally, La Roche Posay is NOT 100% vegan as a brand, because their products contain animal-derived ingredients or by-products.
This potent anti-aging moisturizer – as the 3rd and final step of The Lancer Method – hydrates and provides key anti-aging benefits. Powerful calming agents and soothing emollients help calm sensitive skin, improve its hydration level, and protect against environmental aggressors.
Skin is nourished and hydrated for a visibly renewed, youthful glow.
I’ve been a fan of Lancer products for years now and they really do work for me! I used to have bad acne all of my cheeks until I went on Accutane. While on the medication I began using Lancer’s products and found that they helped tremendously alongside the medication.
I prefer the sensitive skin formula because my skin can easily get irritated and I never found this lotion to cause me any problems. I also like his different serums because I found that over time they have helped fade my acne scars also.
I choose to buy my products here instead of his website because I have found that Dermstore has a lot more promo codes than the Lancer website. If you’re iffy about trying these products due to price, I would recommend buy one of the gift sets since they’re cheaper and feature more products without as much risk as buying full size items!.
The Lancer Skincare last step after the polish and the cleanse is the nourish. This rich cream does exactly that-it nourishes your skin in a way that no other cream that I have tried even comes close!!!! For the first time ever my face feels as fresh at the end of the day as it did at the beginning!!!! It feels hydrated and drenched in moisture without feeling greasy !!! And makeup glides on smoothly and doesn’t fade or move as the day progresses!!!! This final step of the Lancer method really works!!! Try it!!! Your skin will thank you!!!.
This is the first moisturizer I have tried that actually drinks into my skin and hydrates it, smells nice, doesn’t make me break out or itch, and my face feels soft throughout the day!!! IT’S AMAZING!!!! I’m 55, post-menopausal and have very dry, sensitive skin.
Other moisturizers just sit on the top of my skin – NOT this one!!! It’s AMAZING!!! I have a water bottle and I spritz my face with a little water and then apply the moisturizer to my face, neck and decollete and my skin drinks it in.
It’s so nice and refreshing and hydrating. I’M SO HAPPY!!!! My only request is if you could make it in the large tube size like the regular moisturizer please? I love the sensitive polish and sensitive cleanser too.
My search is over!!! LANCER is the beginning and end for me!!! Thank you so much Candace & Dr. Lancer!!!!! :).

Hey guys, I’m Bronson Armond. I often read posts here and I’ve finally made the decision to fix my credit after years of damage. In 2018 I got involved in a fatal accident and was rushed down to the hospital.
I was placed on treatment for 3 months but was unable to pay up bills. I have around 15 accounts with 75% utilization and I’m paying around $2000 a month alone with around $60,000 debt. I know paying it off would be the best scenario but I wasn’t in a position to do that.
The monthly payment was going into interest. In 2020 I decided to apply for my dream car which is a 2017 Ford Escape but was not approved due to low credit score. Months back I saw some good reviews ROOTKITS CREDIT SPECIALIST and how they’ve been helping lives, I emailed via: rootkitscreditspecialist @ gmail.
com and texted on +1 760 474 3440; I explained my predicament to them and they said they can make my credit to be an excellent one, within 5 days medical bills, hard inquiries, credit card debt and collections were cleared from my credit report and my credit score was raised from 528 to 803.
I thought I was dreaming when I checked my credit profile to confirm my new credit score. My greatest happiness is that my 2017 Escape Ford has been approved. Thanks to ROOTKITS CREDIT SPECIALIST I highly recommend them to the world.
I am 54 years old. I suffer from very dry skin around my nose and eyebrows. I also have Rosatia across my cheeks, so I always buy products for sensitive skin. I’ve tried all the expensive cleansers and moisturizers.
The flakes would be gone for an hour after cleaning and moisturizing my skin, but the flakes always return within an hour. My skin where the Rosatia is becomes even redder ans irritated after washing my face and moisturizing.
Every time I’d try a new product, I’d make sure I didn’t have any plans for a few days, because I knew my skin would break out. I tried ponds for the first time exactly 7 days ago and I am so pleased! The dryness around my nose and eyebrows was gone the first day I used it, and has not returned.
I am also happy to say not one pimple has formed! The Rosatia is not bothered at all by Ponds and those spots do not become redder or irritated at all! My skin feels so soft! I really wish I’ve tried this product years ago instead of spending all that money on the expensive products that don’t help my skin at all.
I have used this incredible cream for 40 years, and I have adored it all that time. Now, I have to stop using it and I am disheartened. The scent has changed, sometime in 2022. radically. to something powdery, heady and overpowering.
The smell is so heavy! Its awful. I wrote to Ponds, and they said that they have not changed their essence and kindly offered me a coupon for a free cream- I was relieved from their assurance and I believed them, so I went and got the cream again, once with their free coupon, and one more time out of pocket.
hoping this was true. and I just bought it again yesterday. still hoping that maybe this is an anomaly. Well, Ponds was not correct, the scent has changed from a fresh, airy, rosewater type of wonderful scent to something unrecognizable.
I am so sad. I loved this product, its a phenomenal product and it just been ruined in one single swoop.
When it comes to finding the best facial moisturizer for combination skin, there are a few things you need to keep in mind. First, you need to make sure that the moisturizer is non-comedogenic, meaning that it won’t clog your pores.
Second, you need to find a moisturizer that is oil-free, so that it won’t make your skin feel greasy. And finally, you need to find a moisturizer that contains ingredients that will help to control oil production and keep your skin looking matte.
A good facial moisturizer for combination skin should contain all of these things, and more. It should also be lightweight and easily absorbed into the skin, so that it doesn’t leave behind a heavy, greasy feeling.
And of course, it should also be affordable!.
The bottom line is that there is no one “perfect” facial moisturizer for combination skin – but there are definitely a few that stand out from the rest. If you’re looking for a facial moisturizer that ticks all of the boxes, we recommend the CeraVe Daily Moisturizing Lotion.
