Most Helpful Positive Review Does what it says
I've used Elf before when it first started coming out with facial skincare. I didnt care for the stuff it came out with at first. Didnt do much. Fast forward a couple years later and I decided to try this and I like it. Its very hydrating and would be awesome in the winter and dry months. Summer...I dont think so because where I am its hot and humid. So, for now I am using less and just looking for something thats better for summer. It kinda feels oily when its humid and hot. Feels good on my skin but I think I need something less hydration. I'll continue to use it of course but I'll be looking for other Elf products to see if there's something milder.
Most Helpful Critical Review Not too happy with this product
It's very thick and heavy feeling on the skin. I thought I would love it since the ingredients were good and it wasn't too expensive, but it was very oily on the skin. Would recommend only as a night cream.

Susan from Rockwall Texas
I used it at night in combo with my other face regimens. Sometimes I would use alone. Not greasy and kept my face soft.
I love elf but this..
M from x
I love every single elf product i've ever bought, but this dried my skin out so bad it started flaking off. It also has a weird texture on my face when drying. I'm happy most people are enjoying it but I'm pretty sad about my experience. :(
Used a whole container
Paige from MI
I LOVE this moisturizer. I used up a whole container of it so my word is good. I will be repurchasing over and over again as long as they make it. Holy grail product for my dry skin.
Absorbs Well and Great for the Colder Months
Kim from NYC, NY
Worked well enough to repurchase. It is a bit on the heavier side so I would recommend using it during fall/winter.
Thick & Rich
Whinniex from Seattle
Definitely not what I had in mind when I made the purchase. The formula is quite thick, and can be a tad hard to glide onto the skin, depending on how much you choose to use. That being said, I do feel like the product sinks into the skin immediately and it helps my dry patches and overall skin texture. Too early to determine if I will repurchase or not. It did seem to break me out a little (the tiniest bit) as my skin was getting adjusted to a new moisturizer, but after 2-3 uses, it went away and hasn't come back since. Overall I like the price and do think it's one of the best "thick" creams available at its price point.
Zoilu from Santa Fe
Always kept on hand because: lightweight, easily absorbed; hydrating; and is, indeed, fragrance free! Not main face cream but easily used as a pick-me-up hydration during the day.
Love this product!
Rachel from North Carolina
I've used so many different moisturizers from Dermalogica to Mario Badescu to Clinique and Kiehl's and using this is the best my face has felt and looked in years. I'm obsessed!
Great for dry skin
Dog mom from Wisconsin
I use this in the morning and at night. I am very impressed with this cream. Especially with the price tag!
ANB from Colorado Springs
I've had a hard time finding a moisturizer that was light weight and yet didn't leave my skin either over oily or too dry. I used a brand from Bulgaria for years that's unavailable in the United States and I was on the hunt for almost 2 years to try and find my holy grail face moisturizer. This stuff is AMAZING. Lightweight coverage that leaves my skin silky smooth. Highly recommended!
* I have picky sensitive and also combination skin (dry around forehead and mouth and oily in my T zone. Hope this helps!
Broke me out
Bitchinfairie from Wisconsin
It gave me whiteheads which is sad because my skin felt really moisturized. I have sensitive skin and it didn't turn red but unfortunately it made me break out.
Back to Neutrogena
MBK from OH
I wanted to love this so much. The price is incredible, I love that it's fragrance free, and the ingredients are a dream. It's just not great on dry skin. It goes on super smoothly and initially feels hydrating but unfortunately dried me out. It's definitely worth trying. I'm so jealous of those it works for. Unfortunately, it's back to Neutrogena Hydro Boost for me!
Kris01 from USA
Have finally found my all time favorite moisturizer! I've tried so many other expensive/high end/and drugstore face creams and this is by far the best and most effective. Been using it for 6 months now. Doesn't irritate my dry acne prone skin, isn't greasy, doesn't sting. It keeps skin moisturized and comfortable. I'm on my third jar and will continue to purchase.
love, love, love
SamBtheLamb from vermont, United States
I absolutely love this moisturizer. never change or discontinue please. aloe free, and absolutely doesn't break my acne prone skin out. this will be my new go to moisturizer for a long time.
Ty from NC
I'm always looking for a moisturizer that wont irritate my skin and actually sinks in. this moisturizer is so awesome, it sinks in deep after application and makes your skin feel so soft and plump. I use it morning and night along with my other skin care stuff and it has quickly become my favorite moisturizer.
Great on sensitive skin!
Britt from Rochester, NY
My skin was so dry before using this product and was making my make up look caky. I've used for a week or two now, and I am starting to look glowy!
The best moisturizer I've ever used!
Nancy from St. Louis, MO
Made the switch from a $50 "fancy brand" moisturizer to this and my skin has never been happier. I have sensitive/dry skin and this is hydrating enough that I can use every other day if needed. This makes skin feel so soft and look healthy and refreshed. Definitely worth a buy.
Best for Normal/Oily Skin
Jynxette from Southern MS
I have normal skin that is slightly oiler in the summer and a bit drier in the winter. This face cream is a godsend. It applies smoothly and moisturized my entire face with only 2 pea sized amounts. Note that do use a hyaluronic acid from the Hado Labo Gokujyun line and the Kikumasamune Emulsion before applying this. My skin benefits from a lot of lighter layers of moisturization rather than 1 glob of an occlusive. Best part about this cream is it's both lightweight and fragrance free.
One of the best moisturizers I've ever used!
angelica :) from Casa Grande, AZ
I honestly bought this bc Hyram from YT recommended it, and it's amazing! I have really oily and acne prone skin, so I worry about new products making me break out, but this wasn't the case. It's very rich and you don't need a lot, so it lasts a few months, lightweight, and didn't leave you looking oily/shiny. I'm buying another jar!
Dude for the Murad Hydro Dynamic Moisturizer
Sam from Florida
I've used the Murad moisturizer for over a year and got the elf one in a sample kit and it is almost exactly the same in every way. Same smell, consistency, and makes my skin feel very moisturized for a while after application. Not greasy at all. I have combo/oily sensitive skin and never broke me out or irritated me. Will be purchasing this over the Murad one from now on!
Grace from NC
I was really excited to buy this, but it really wasn't it. I already have dry skin, but this dried me up further. It would flake off after awhile. I don't know if maybe this works best for people with a little more oily skin, but I don't work for me.
Vicki from Los Angeles
Not for combo skin
Sarah from Pennsylvania
The first time I used it, it wasn't enough hydration. My combo skin was bone dry after an hour. Next time I used it, I globbed on like a quarter size amount... my skin was bone dry after about 2 hours. The only time I use this now is if I apply sunscreen afterwards and I'm out and about on a hot day, because the sunscreen and my natural oil help moisturize my face.
Great value face cream
Theresa 12 from Syracuse, NY
Liked how it felt on my skin. Did not feel heavy on my skin, and order nicely. Didn't feel greasy either of cause any breakouts!
Skiincare novice from New York
This moisturizer is great. You don't need a lot of it. It's very light and makes my face feel so good I have to stop myself from putting more product on. I saw some comments about it being too greasy but I find that happens if you're too much of the product. Excellent price point and cute packaging.
Cguz from Houston, TX
I was looking for a good, thick moisturizer to use in the mornings. I saw the reviews on this one and figured I'd give it a try. I am so glad I did because this is my new favorite daytime moisturizer! the only thing that could make it better is if it had an SPF in it. A little goes a long way. it absorbed quickly and doesn't affect my make up. It leaves my skin feeling/looking very soft and supple. And I love that it's fragrance free.
