Most Helpful Positive Review Actually Pretty Impressed With This
I have sensitive, fairly oily skin that's prone to break-outs, so I've never had too much luck in finding a moisturizer that didn't cause my (large) pores to get clogged. I wanted to try out some different things to see if there was a decent match for me somewhere out there, so I decided to give this product a shot - and I'm really glad that I did. It isn't heavy, the formula is easy to work into the skin, and it does its job. Hot DANG, does it do its job! There is a scent like baby wipes that's... not exactly overpowering, but also not as subtle as I would have liked. Semi-strong, is what I would call it. Thankfully, it did not leave my face smelling like chemicals, so I can easily forgive the odd scent. As far as packaging goes, there have been a lot of complaints about the pump not working properly due to the dismally short straw inside the tube. I ran into the same problem - but I was able to solve it (thus far) by giving the tube a good strong downward shake before using the pump. I have to keep the nozzle facing down and give the tube itself a slight squeeze to help coax out the product, but my meathod works pretty well and I'm able to get a good bit of moisturizer out onto my fingers. A needlessly complicated process, but a manageable one. Now it's time for a story: I actually lost a dear, dear friend of mine right before Thanksgiving, which resulted in several days' worth of heavy crying. This, combined with the dry winter air left me with a painfully chapped face with peeling dry skin and scaly eyelids. The ultimate test for a moisturizer. I used this product twice a day for about three days in a row, and my chapped, grief-and-winter-wind skin cleared right up. It did sting upon the first use, but never afterwards, so I'm attributing that to just how raw my face was at the time. Upon prolonged use, there have been no breakouts, no clogged pores, no irritation due to the product itself, and there is a noticeable improvement in my skin as a whole. All in all, I would say this was a huge win. Other than the scent, the only thing about the moisturizer that I don't care much for, (though am not truly bothered by,) was the way it didn't completely absorb into my skin. It absorbed about 90% of the way, but then left a slight oily feeling on my face. Again, I have naturally oily skin, so someone with dryer skin might have a different result. I patted and rubbed it in as best I could, but even after an hour or so, the thin layer of grease was still there. Every now and then I would give it another gentle swipe just to help it sink into my pores, and that DID help a bit. I ended up washing my face just before bed anyway, and that took care of the lingering film. Final verdict: this is an amazing moisturizer that does have a few flaws, but more than makes up for them in terms of how well it works. If you have oily skin, be prepared to dab off the excess lest it leave you with a bit of grease, but there shouldn't be a risk of break-outs due to how lightweight the product itself actually is. Once you get past the weird packaging and the scent of baby wipes, this is definitely a great moisturizer - and one that I will likely repurchase.
Most Helpful Critical Review Good and bad.
This is a good moisturizer with a clean scent and doesn't end up oily or greasy on my skin. I only had it a week though and I noticed I was having trouble getting the product to pump out. So, I took the cap off and found the problem. The straw is only about an inch long. Really e.l.f.?

This is a very lightweight moisturizer, which is perfect for my oily skin. It hydrates without leaving my skin feeling heavy or looking glossy, and lasts all day until I wash my face at night. I highly recommend this product for anyone with oily skin!
Destroyed my skin
Sarsar from United States
This stuff destroyed my skin. I don't know what is in it that my face doesn't like, but my face has been itching, burning and dry. I have cystic acne on my face which has never happened to me before. Cheap product, but still not worth the price.
Dess1017 from Ohio
I bought this around 3 months ago. I use it every morning . I love it. It's not to heavy
coolgirl11111 from California
I bought this product a few months back after seeing lots of YouTube reviews. The quantity is great for the price and you just need a pump to have a good layer all over your face. I use today and night and I still have so much left. It is thin enough to wear in the summer, but moisturizing enough to give a good amount of moisture.
Hydrating and lightweight
Piu04 from Starkville,MS
I have really dry skin and this moisturizer has been my holy grail since 2017/2018. It is super hydrating but lightweight and layers well with makeup. They recently changed the formula and I would recommend 10/10.
I've been looking...
SunniD from Texas
I've been looking for a replacement to my very expensive & discontinued facial moisturizer. I tried a hydrogel store bought and it was meh. I needed something that would really soak into my skin. I work in a hospital and my new routine since this pandemic entails I use rubbing alcohol on my skin every day for 8 hrs. So I'm constantly needing hydration. Initially I ordered the coconut spray, the active spray, and decided I'd try this.
Not disappointed! This product leaves my face so super soft, hydrated (not shiny or greasy), and supple. I am very sensitive to smells and this one doesn't give me a headache. A little goes a long way. I wish it came in a jar. Def is my new go-to please don't switch the formula. You guys nailed it IMO. Will be purchasing more very soon.
Lightweight for My Oily Skin
misstessamaye from Eugene, OR
I wanted a lightweight moisturizer for my slightly oily skin and this has been great for me. I put it on in the mornings under my makeup; it soaks into my skin nicely and doesn't leave a residue, just makes my skin nice and soft. I don't think it does any deep, repairing moisturizing, but if you just want something for daily upkeep I think this is a good option. It has a pleasant subtle fruity scent.
Hydrating without oiliness
SPat from London
I have used this for over 2 months and am now looking to purchase it again. It really is moisturising.. in a refreshing way, not greasy.

Lerah06 from undisclosed
I have rosacea so my skin gets super dry this is one of the best moisturizers I've ever tried! I has worked better than some of my expensive creams! I've purchased 3 times already and I will continue to repurchase
I love this product so much!
The real Ulta beauty from Illinois
I have always trusted E.L.F, and this moisturizer is no different. It makes my skin so soft. It is great quality, but affordable! My only issue is not with the product itself, but the packaging. The sort of tube/ pump top is great and very convenient, but the silver coating on the lid sort of thing scrapes off over time from the cap. This is totally not a real issue with the product. It's is phenomenal and by far my favorite!
DRY SKIN FOREVER CHANGED
Keisha from Utah
I use 2-3 pumps twice daily. I'm telling you- this has changed my skin forever. I have naturally very dry, flaky skin and I live in the desert. This is a definite dupe for the benefit moisturizer! It won't clog your pores, make you oily, or effect your make up. Highly recommend!
Kris from New Mexico
Honestly the best while using an acne treatment and in general. I recently started taking a more aggressive approach to my acne and this moisturizer is the best by far. It also goes a long way, and feels very very nice on the skin. I wil definitely repurchase over and over.
Grandma G from San Diego
I would used this product again because it's lightweight
Perfect for summer

Great lightweight moisturizer. Perfect for summer. Smells good and doesn't leave that greasy residue some moisturizers do. Works for day or night.
Love this product!!!!
Dollz from New York
I have had rosacea my entire life and this inexpensive product has completely gotten rid of it. The coconut in it is just the right mix. Thanks e.l.f.!!!!!
OM from NY
A little bit goes a loooonggg way! It doesn't leave my skin feeling greasy either. It also has a very pleasant coconut smell. Overall, a great product for a great price.
Affordable, Effective WORTH IT!
truckersgrl from Boardman, OH
So I have been searching for a moisturizer that will help me oily yet dry skin that won't break the bank. This stuff is awesome. If you take the time to actually massage it into your skin it won't be greasy like others have mentioned. A little goes a long way.
