Most Helpful Positive Review Fragrance-free version of Hello Hydration! Cream
The ingredients are the exact same as Hello Hydration!, but this is fragrance-free. It looks like you can only get Hello Hydration from Ulta right now, so I assume they discontinued the fragrant version. I haven't tried the fragrance free, but given that's the only difference, I feel confident in applying my review of Hello Hydration to Holy Hydration. I received a sample of Hello Hydration! in my previous elf order and was really surprised by the quality. If I didn't already have so much moisturizer, I would definitely buy this. I liked this more than any other more expensive creams I've tried recently. It's not greasy, but leaves the skin feeling like silk. My skin is on the normal/oily side.
Most Helpful Critical Review Not for sensitive or dry skin unfortunately
I bought this about 2 months ago to replace my usual moisturizer and used it daily before applying my make up and on days when going make up free. I found after about 3 days of use, my skin stared to feel tight. This was relieved by putting on the moisturiser but would only stop the tightness for an hour or 2 before applying again. Just after a week I started to get dry scaly patches around my face that this moisturiser did nothing for. After 2 weeks of use, trying to give it as good as a chance as possible, I just had to stop and go back to my usual moisturiser. If you have dry skin that isn't easily managed and need a thirst quenching moisturiser, this isn't it as much as I wish it was.

Nice Hydration, but pills a lot
sen123 from undisclosed
I have combination skin and this has been great for moisturizing my dry zones and also not making my oily zones more oily. I love the hydration and how lightweight it is, but unfortunately I noticed it pills after it soaks in. After about 15 mins from applying it, if I ever touch my face it just balls up. I've tried to see if I could fix this by mixing CBD oil, facial mists, serums, etc- but no matter what the end result is the same.
I wanted to love this, but because the pilling makes me look super flakey, I likely won't purchase again.
Good Face Cream
KellyLV from Las Vegas, NV
I like that this is fragrance free. It is also goes on smoothly and leaves skin feeling hydrated.
Jess2193 from PA
This moisturizer is great for daily use. It's hydrating without feeling heavy or greasy. It absorbs into the skin quickly and provides a beautiful glow to my skin. I slather it on heavy both am and pm and it has absolutely saved my skin during the harsh winter months.
Wanted to love it
Bri from NJ
This made me breakout. Had to stop using it unfortunately.
rash and sensitivity
Dr Sri from Jersey city
I have good opinion on elf as a brand for makeup but this moisturizer gave me rash & tingling. I used it for 2 days and my experience isn't that great. I don't know why it occurred only to me. I got this moisturizer off of many ppl's recommendations but it's not for me. I don't have sensitive skin but got sensitized after using this. I wanted to try few other elf mists and moisturizers but I'm skeptical to try them out.
Amazingly smooth and gentle
Giselle21 from Toronto, CA
I received this item, and I was so excited to try it. I did my regular regime, and I have fallen in love. The cream is smooth and easy to apply. A little goes a long way! I would definitely recommend or buy again.

I have very dry,sensitive skin that gets very red and flushes easily. Most things sting me and them leave a red blotch-not Holy Hydration ! Face Cream! It is very soothing to my skin,leaves it soft and smooth. NO REDNESS!!! NO STINGING!! Yeah, I'm shouting! I can't believe I found something so affordable,full of excellent skincare ingredients and my skin loves it! I will order again!
HOLY GRAIL hydration!!
Skin.love from West palm beach FL
This cream performs as it claims. It has a nice thick & creamy texture that feels wonderful going on. A little goes a long way. I love all the great ingredients in this product. I use this as my last step in my skincare routine both AM & PM. I will be using e.l.f. holy hydration for years to come.
My go-to moisturizer
Audrey N from Wichita, KS
I'm on my second pot of this and I love it. It doesn't dry sticky or greasy but makes me feel hydrated. However, in drier seasons I find it's not heavy enough to hydrate dry spots so I either use Great Barrier Relief serum underneath or mix it with half a pump of Glossier Futuredew. Sits well under sunscreen and makeup.
I'll never use anything else!
Emmaline from Kansas
I've always been a E.L.F. fan but now even more so! This moisturizer is amazing!
lightweight, non drying, scent free
jennyjenn27 from San Diego, CA
I bought this to try as I am looking for fragrance free products as the older I get the more sensitive I am to scent. This is lightweight, absorbs into skin, did not break me out. For the price you can't beat it.
Mads from Nj
The other day I was in the store looking at skincare and I noticed that elf was really affordable. I bought some stuff from the brand then I realized how good it worked. I went back and got this cream and it is so amazing lasts long and makes my skin feel so good.
A little goes a long way!
Mslynne from Midwest
I've used elf moisturizers throughout the years but when you combine this Holy Hydration with the cleanser and the cleansing duo brush ...it's remarkable. Your face is so soft and glowing but with no oily or sticky feel. I love looking at me in the mirror after and being amazed every single time. It never gets old. I'm in my 50+ years and people never believe it.
Dinah from Florida
This is my go-to morning and night. I only purchase the fragrance free cream. Not too greasy, absorbs beautifully!
This is my new and only go to face cream!
Karissa from NJ
I forgot when I bought this face cream, but I am almost finished with it and I just purchased a new one. My cousin recommended me this cream and I fell in love. It is light-weight and not greasy or thick feeling. I put it on almost every night and my skin looks glowy and fabulous. I love this cream so much I am never buying anything else ever again. I gave some to my sister to try and now she is in love with this product too!
a dream for combo skin!
vanessal259 from chicago, il
This moisturizer is better than a lot of pricier ones I have tried! It is one of those creams that truly sinks into your skin and doesn't sit on top of it so it actually hydrates and never leaves a greasy feeling. I typically get drier in the winter and have noticed that I have to apply a facial oil after using this product because it isn't thick enough to treat my driest areas. But if you have normal, combo, or oily skin, I think you would love this product. I also so appreciate the fact that there is a fragrance free version and it smells very fresh and like skincare rather than being off putting. Cannot recommend enough!
Conner from Ohio
Another amazing product by Elf! This moisterizer right now is my absolute favorite to where I stopped using my others lol. I love how it's fragrance free, peptides and ceramides in it and texture is amazing! Goes on so beautifully and the skin absorbs it so easily. It's very light but heavy enough to use for winter and cheap! You will NOT regret thus purchase as your am and pm every day moisterizer.
Love this moisturizer!!!
Ann from Houston
I have combination/sensitive skin (oily forehead and chin, dry t zone) and this moisturizer is a god send! Goes on smooth and not oily leaving my skin hydrated and with a glow. I cannot recommend this stuff enough
My ride or die
Shailo from Maui
Im almost finished with my first bottle and already bought my second! I am so in love with how the formula feels on my face. It feels very moisturizing and light weight on my skin which is a total bonus because my skin is sensitive. Plus you can't argue with the price point.
Lana from Los Angeles
I fell in love with this when I discovered it last year and it worked wonders. For someone with oily skin, I still need extra moisture in certain areas. It was my perfect fragrance free moisturizer up until recently. For some reason I can't get it to work without adding an essence or serum under it which defeats the purpose of having this moisturizer. I always apply it to wet skin in order to trap all moisture and my skin was once supple but now it completely disappears, leaving my skin hardly moisturized and flaky in some areas. So sad my use of this has come to an end.
Perfect in every way!
Stylinsuzi from Maryland
I have been using the Holy Hydration face cream for about a month now, I love it! I apply it morning and night! Wears perfectly under makeup, so well that I don't even need a makeup primer at all. Most moisturizers burn my eyes with heavy scent and make them red and watery, where this one does not!! I have noticed that after just a few weeks of using this product, my skin seems to be more plump, less dehydrated and actually brightening and making my skin seem more clear and glowy!!
MoonRay from undisclosed
I actually got this for my teen siblings, as I'm a mid 20's skincare addict & ran out of moisturizer for a few days & decided to use this in the meantime. It's very soothing & hydrating, just enough moisture yet my skin still needs more + there's a few ingredients in here I like to avoid. All in all I think it's great for most people though & affordable of course. Can't go wrong :).
