Most Helpful Positive Review Miracle in a jar
Love love this lotion!! I was skeptical about buying if because it has oil in it, I try to avoid all products that have oil in in because I have really oily skin. The smell of this lotion makes me want to eat it as it reminds me of lemon Meringue pie, or lemon cream pie. I noticed with in the first couple of day my skin looked and felt amazing, my pores were smaller and not so noticeable. Shockingly my face wasn't oily and I didn't break out from the oil in this lotion. Works well under foundation! The only thing left is to break the bank and buy the regular size at $48 :-/
Most Helpful Critical Review Caused Severe Ance • Coconut Oil Nightmare
I really do like It Cosmetics, but this moisturizer did not work for me, and unfortunately, this seems to be the case for a lot of the brand's skincare. There are some fantastic hydrating and anti-aging ingredients in this cream, however, all that goodness is negated by the bad-for-MY-skin ingredients -- like coconut oil and silicones -- that cause my skin to go haywire and breakout. (Coincidentally, this is the case with many of the It Cosmetics skincare lineup.) Coconut oil is at the top of my ingredient avoidance list. A lot of people can use coconut oil, but there are a percentage of us that cannot have it within anything that goes on our face. For me, coconut oil is very pore-clogging, and causes severe and painful acne on my face that take a long time to fully heal. (It works great on my legs though! 🤙) This moisturizing cream also has various forms of silicone in it, which again, I cannot use in skincare. For reference, I have breakout-prone skin that leans more on the oily side.
All that said, I have friends with dry skin that swear by this moisturizing cream (and other IT skincare). I have no doubt that for the correct skin type(s), this moisturizing cream is exceptional. So although I do not like it, that certainly does not mean it is not a good product. (But for real though, I REALLY wish It Cosmetics would consider reformulating the skincare without coconut oil.)
My best advice is to do your research. Know what skin type you have -- whether you have sensitive skin; or skin that is acne-prone. Read ingredient lists. If you see ingredients that could be potentially problematic for your skin, use with caution. Perform a patch test prior to using a new skincare product. Read reviews from consumers with your skin type/concerns.

I used to use this. Then a year and a half ago, in the summer, I tried the lighter weight lotion. This is hands-down better! I will go back to using this all the time unless it becomes too heavy during summer, then I'll figure it out.
Overall amazing product for sure!

Made Me Break Out
K from CA
The cream made me break out all over my forehead - a place I have had minimal, if any, breakouts before.
It did alright under makeup though, something my other heavy cream does not do.
Did not work for me
Rodeo Girl from Sealy, TX
Used this product for a week. Applied morning and night. Felt like it just sat on my skin and did not absorb. Also had a sticky feeling even after waiting for it to set in. After 4 days I started to break out and it got worse day 5,6. Stopped using it and went back to my normal moisturizer and my skin is back to normal.
I would totally buy this product again!
Tori from Long Beach, Ca
So I use this product mainly in the day, my skin was going through a dry phase and it helped boost it to be moisturized, I would definitely recommend it, the only thing is that it feels a little heavy but not unbearable.
Ellie from New Orleans
I liked this product because I have very oily skin and I was afraid to use moisturizers. But this cream keeps my skin at a manageable level and I'm not shinny any more.
A perfectly balanced moisturizer
Catydid7 from Atlanta, GA
I realized I needed some extra moisture as I get older and am so glad I decided to try this. It's not greasy and it sinks into the skin nicely. Plays well with makeup and leaves my skin feeling soft. I'm hooked.
LaLa Leanne from San Diego, CA
I love this moisturizer! I'm 44 and as I've aged I've noticed that just any moisturizer with work on my skin. This one is by far my favorite, and I've tried most of them out there.
Yes I would buy this product again.
Tess from Shalimar, Fl

The only moisturizer that works for me!
ML0907 from Wisconsin
In the winter my Skin is dry and flakey. It's embarrassing especially when it makes your makeup look cakey. I've tried many moisturizers, but this one works for me best and I use this one daily now. It's expensive but the product is good. My fine lines by my lower lip has disappeared.

I use this daily, under make up. Make up application goes on smooth, great moisturizer, but not greasy at all.
Its a keeper!
Lins from Port Huron, MI
I have looked near, and far to find a good cream! The first time I bought this product I was prepared for a let down, like I have felt so many times before! With brands promising these miracles that they can't follow through with. But I was pleasantly surprised, being greated with a very fresh, & clean almost lemon scent. The texture is great! Its not oily, it doesn't leave a film over your skin, it absorbs great, and to mention really does what its meant to do! My face and neck absolutely love this product! It instantly brings a brightness and glow to my skin that I've yet to see better for my skin! All in all I'm beyond happy, and impressed with stumbling across this product and it becoming my go to! Definitely a must to have in my bag at all times!!😍😘
Madison from Johnstown, PA
This product is very amazing for anyone who wants to have glowing, soft, supple skin. It works instantly and it lasts all day. Works great under makeup as well!
Actually like this!

Krystal from Kennewick WA
I have severe facial eczema, and it's especially barb underneath my eyes, which is a very hard spot to apply moisturizer but this works so perfectly. it never burns, and you barley need any, a little goes a long way. I recommend trying this size before purchasing the regular size. It works best for fairly dry skin, i wouldn't recommend this on mixed skin (oily/sort of dry) just very dry, or just a perfect under-eye cream!
My #1 cream
Sunny from AZ
Absolutely love this I wear it after cleansing my face, and it stays so hydrated during the day and if I want a refresh I'll just do a quick wipe with a towel and add some more, the best part is you only need a small amount to last a long time
I love this product!
Alayna from Texas
I use this moisturizer every. single. day! It absorbs quickly, and improves my skin texture. My skin definitely knows when I run out, and I always go straight to Ulta for more!
I bought the travel size to try and LOVE it!!
Momma C from Tulsa, OK
I use this in the morning after cleansing and before makeup application. It keeps my "T" zone from being oily and my skin feels amazing!
rb from VA
This cream is the best on the market. I have used quite a few but this one wins hand down.
Megan from Kansas City, MO
I will only use this in the wintertime during the worst months when the humidity drops to zero and it's like 5 below. Otherwise this is WAY WAY WAY too heavy. It's a good moisturizer, but it really has a hard time absorbing into my skin. Once it actually gets in there, it's great. I just don't know why this particular cream has such a hard time absorbing.
