Most Helpful Positive Review Pretty great
I was using kiehl's midnight recovery concentrate for about 2 years to help combat the dry skin on my face! It works pretty good but is too oily for me, quite expensive, I can only order it online and have it shipped (quite inconvenient sometimes). I am now using this cream! I have seen the spider veins and redness on my skin improve, to the point I don't wear foundation anymore for my everyday natural look! It is also a really good base before putting on my foundation since I have pretty dry skin. It makes my foundation look very smooth and natural. I also started using Tula's purifying face cleanser around the same time and have seen the hydration in my skin improve compared to using clinique. I no longer have dry patches on my face! I use this at night and also in the morning on top of my sunscreen, it last all day!
Most Helpful Critical Review WORST THING I EVER PUT ON MY FACE
Just returned this after an awful experience that hopefully gets better soon. I have dry, sensitive, somewhat acne-prone skin. I usually only get hormonal acne, meaning 1-2 pimples here and there. The sales rep pushed me to buy this and kept saying it would be great for my skin concerns. She couldn't have been more wrong. I should've figured she didn't actually care and was just pushing her agenda. I broke out so badly. I currently have multiple big, painful whiteheads on my face. My skin looks dull and dehydrated. I thought my skin was purging but it only got worse and I broke out in places I've never had acne before. I have 2 pimples on my neck, which has never happened before. The sales rep said there was no fragrance, yet it's an ingredient and it smells awful. My skin can't handle fragrance, which I informed her. I'm guessing I broke out from the "hydrogenated vegetable oil." Why is that an ingredient?!? That's literally trans fat. If we aren't supposed to consume trans fat, why is it okay to put on our skin?!? This is the worst AND most expensive cream I've ever used. Never again. Goes to show that more expensive isn't always better quality. Don't see how this can work for any skin type. A nightmare. I haven't had this much acne since puberty. So upset but praying my skin returns to normal soon.

This is perfect and light weight so great for morning and bed time and it sinks right in, not greasy or anything. If you are looking for a face lotion this one is amazing
Burned sensitive skin
Kaja from Pennsylvania
I'll preface by saying I have very sensitive skin that even a washcloth irritates, so a lot of products just don't work well for me, but this is the first moisturizer that has burned my skin--I've been sporting a blistery red area on my cheekbone for 3 days now. Thankfully this was a free sample but I did want to give a warning to anyone with sensitive skin who is questioning that price tag without trying it first. I have been using it on my body now without problems, and I do like that it's a cream but has a lighter consistency and sinks in pretty quickly. I can see by the reviews that it works great for some people, but this is a hard pass for me.
Working well but strong smell
H.C from Houston
Although its only been a few days I think I'm ready to review. First off I didnt have a negative reaction after switching to this which is saying something. I have very sensitive skin.
I also have very dry skin and this moisturizer actually left me a soft and nearly dewy finish that lasted.
The lotion is THICK so if that's not for you be advised. Also it has a very strong perfume smell. It does fade after a half hour but if that's a problem it might bug you.
Over all im happy right now and im going to continue using it despite the smell.
Worth the Splurge
Heather M. from Atlanta, GA
This jar will last forever & smells amazing. It's the perfect balance of moisture and smoothness without getting greasy. I regularly used belif aqua bomb but switched to Tula because it keep my skin hydrated without making me look oily. A little goes a long way. I'm very acne prone & my skin has been clear as day using this & the cult classic cleanser.
Hansbanans from Whitehall NY
I bought a few Tula products to try them out and so far have been underwhelmed. This moisturizer is just ok. It doesn't really have a great feel or smell. It feels really heavy on my face so I'm only using it for nighttime now. Not worth the money. I have oily skin if that helps. If you do too I highly recommend Kate Somerville oil free moisturizer. I'll use this up then going back to ole reliable.
Amber from TX
I hate that I love this. I love the product but my bank account hates it. Honestly the best moisturizer out there. It does not leave me feeling overly oily or sticky. It's perfect and smells so fresh. Favorite part of my skin care.
Sunnie from NC
I love how this moisturizer is light on the face. It doesn't feel heavy and take 20-30 minutes to soak in before applying makeup.
not for me
Nat from Los Angeles
I received a sample of this & it was the only new thing I added to my skincare routine & it made me break out. I got a bunch of tiny little bumps on my forehead & 3 huge pimples on my cheeks. For reference, I have oily skin.
Crissy from USA
I've never used a face moisturizer so I wasn't sure what to expect. This is lightweight and not too creamy or heavy, and it's also not too watery. It's the perfect amount to keep my combination skin under control. I typically do this in the morning and night after my routines. I even let my boyfriend give it a try one night and he liked it as well for the same reason.
Best moisturizer EVER
maddie from mich from Phoenix
This product is amazing and is by far the best moisturizer I've ever used. I first started using it when I was getting hormonal acne and it soothed my skin almost immediately (along with the salicylic acid gel). Then, I moved from a humid climate to the Arizona desert and it supported me through that too! The only con is the price but the little jar lasts me well over a month, so no big problem.
Jackie from California
Love it! Very hydrating without the oily feeling!
Em from Southbury
Great for dry skin, i use it as a night cream and makes me feel refreshed in the morning
I would buy this product again
Mary from Bethlehem Pa
I use this every day
This is definitely part of my routine now
Carina from Hollister, CA
I noticed my face stays moisturized longer. Before using Tula my face would feel dry immediately after washing it. After using Tula for about 2 weeks, my face glows and doesn't feel dry.
Stephanie from Florida
Best face cream ever!
Stacey from St Joe, MI
I primarily use this as a night cream. For my skin, it's a bit heavy to wear under makeup...but on days when I don't wear makeup first thing in the morning, I will apply it morning and night. I put it on after my mad hippie face serum and it feels amazing. My skincare routine has become one of the best parts of my day :) I deviated from using this for a few weeks when I ran out of the sample size and I will not let myself run out again! When you find something that works, you stick to it!
Not For Me
Reina from Wa
I really did like how smooth the application was to my skin, BUT I noticed it dried my skin out. And the fragrance was just TOO strong, as soon as I opened the moisturizer it was just a hella strong smell. I have sensitive skin and fragrances really mess my skin up
Not for me, but maybe for someone who doesn't mind strong smells
Roses are Red from greenville, sc
A sales women approached many months ago when I was in the store looking for what I normally purchase in the same area for my face. I decided to take a chance based off it being a product with ingredients I liked.
I fell in love with it that night and my skin has been beautiful. I'm in my 50's and I still deal with acne prone skin. We all have different experiences with creme products, but this doesn't make it a horrible products, it means your body (hormones/skin) has a reaction. I have very sensitive skin. I don't sit in the sun,I drink plenty of water and I wear full face makeup only on special occasions. It could be make-up, laundry soap or even a poor diet causing additional issues.
I don't agree with statements causing a product horrible, when something doesn't work for me I find something else that will. With the cost of the creme if it didn't work I would have taken it back for a refund and reinvested the refund with another product!
I am missing my creme! :-(
The BEST moisturizer you will purchase
mac from Minneapolis, MN
Perfect moisturizer for any type of skin! Been using this for about a year and a half now and love it day in and day out! Worth the money. Your skin will love this product!
Hummingbird Lover from Southern California
I don't have a problem with the smell or texture, but unfortunately I break out with pimples all over my face. Some are surface and some are deep. I am a person who has used many different skincare products.
Kayla B. from Knoxville, TN
Skin type: Oily/acne prone- hormonal cystic acne-redness
My face is an oil factory so I have been anti moisturizer for a very long time. The past few months I have tried SO SO many different moisturizers and they all made me feel even more oily. I bought this impulsively during quarantine, when I had too much time on my hands and watched A LOT of YouTube gurus. I have been using it over a month, and my skin LOVES LOVES LOVES it. My hormonal acne has cleared up, my oily face has calmed down, I can't say enough good things about this stuff! My favorite part of the day is coming home and slathering this all over my face. I absolutely LOVE it & will def be repurchasing when my jar is empty.

Great moisturizer before foundation❤️👌🏼
Mhar7 from El Paso, tx
The smell is so strong. I have DRY skin and this turned my face into a slip and slide. I started breaking out so bad and had to stop using after three days. Don't waste you money on this. It reminds me of the ponds face cream that my grandma used to have.
Works for us!
JRN from San Diego
I know there's a bunch of moisturizers out there but this one worked for my boyfriend and I really well! We've been using it for the past 6 months and no complaints.
I have combo skin! Usually where it's dry for me is the sides of the nose, under the inner corner of both my brows, and the middle of my brows. Since using this, the dry spots has gone away! Usually where it's oily is my forehead, and it's been quite balanced. It doesn't feel like it clogs my pores. It doesn't feel too thick on the face. I have fairly clear skin, not acne prone, but certain things do make my skin sensitive and break out in hives. I enjoy the smell! It smells really clean!!
My boyfriends skin is also combo skin but turned up to it's max. He says that he does notice a difference in his skin. The dry areas are the sides or his nose and his cheeks, the oily area is forehead. But since using this he says there's much more of a balance in texture and oiliness. And not much dryness as well. He's super acne prone. He's tried a lot of different brands - name brands and drug store but this one he says worked the most if not the only one that does. He also says that when he doesn't use this and uses something else, his face feels like it's throwing a tantrum.
We love this moisturizer! We will continue to purchase over and over!!
My "Forever" Go To Moisturizer
Lovelands from Las Vegas
I have had so much trouble with my aging skin, at 47 I would still have break outs. I found this product as a recommendation. Started with their Probiotic Cleanser which is so hydrating yet cleansing and didn't strip my skin. So I ventured into Tula's other products and ran across this 24/7 moisturizer and all I can say is WOW! Hydrating but no thick greasy residue like most moisturizers leave. Just leaves your skin soft and dry to the touch. This is the product I will use forever. It has minimized my hormonal breakouts by 99%. I still get a few here and there but they are very minimal and disappear within a day. I also combine this with their glycolic acid peel which is safe enough to use day and night and it is a game changer for me. I finally feel list I found a product that reacts well with my skin. I several other products like their sunscreen and under eye hydrating and brightening stick and love them all. Great product line. I know others say the smell is bad, but I don't even notice it to be honest. Couple of downfalls is that this is a jar of moisturizer so it has a tendency to get contaminated if you stick your finger in the jar. Also it's a bit pricey, but you can find discount codes. Honestly you can't put a price on products that leave skin healthy so I don't mind paying the price for something that actually works!
