Most Helpful Positive Review The best moisturizer I've ever used!
I have acne prone skin that gets dehydrated easily (lucky combination!). I'm also developing fine lines, and finding I need to keep my skin hydrated or those lines become way more obvious. I have tried sooo many moisturizers and this is by far my favorite. It does such a great job of hydrating my skin and plumping it up without clogging my pores or adding any additional oil or greasiness. The formula is super lightweight and doesn't irritate my sensitive skin at all. It sits great under makeup as well without any type of pilling or other issues. My only complaint - and it's a very small one - is that it comes in a jar. I'd prefer a pump or tube as I hate digging my fingers into a jar, but I'm willing to put up with it because I love the product so much. If you have acne prone skin, I'd highly recommend this moisturizer. I can't live without it now!
Most Helpful Critical Review Flare Up!
I trust FAB ingredient lists, because I got my sensitive skin from my mother that also uses their products. I have dehydrated combo skin, and California weather is fickle. I got this in the hopes that once the sun comes out I won't sweat this off my face in a 5 minute span after applying. Once I applied this cream to my face, my face felt hot!! In the mirror, I could see my face was turning red. I quickly washed it off and put aloe vera to soothe it immediately. The space above my upper lip was feeling a bit numb for a good 5 minutes after. I have absolutely no idea what caused that reaction. I have never experienced this with FAB products before.
I really wanted to love this, but I gave it to my little sister instead, who is having no problems with it. She has been using it for a good week and a half now, and she really likes it. She has oily skin, she has sensitive skin too, but it works well for her without the same experience that I had.
Just remember that everyone has different skin. I am giving it 3-stars because of my experience, plus my sister's successful experience. It is a good product, but it just wasn't for me.
Reviewed by 96 customers I love this brand, but this product didn't work for me
Amanda from PA
I read the reviews before purchasing, and they were mixed, but I went with it anyway because most were really positive, and I needed a new moisturizer that worked for my skin type. I use a lot of other products from FAB, so I thought this would work well. Some said this burned their skin, and it didn't do that for me, but I found that my skin would be red for a while, and it actually dried out my skin a lot - basically the opposite of what I needed. Will be taking it back.
Hannah from Oklahoma
Smells great! Works good in the skin (normal/oily). My only issue is that the jar is super small, so you're not getting a lot of product compared to other moisturizers at the same price point. I will say a little goes a long way.
Maddie from TN
My face still feels super dry after applying. I also noticed it slightly burns sometimes when I use it but it could be my skin adjusting to the cream. Maybe this cream would be better in summer when my skin isn't dry from the weather.
Great for oily combo skin
Lindsay from Seattle
Got this because skincare by hyram loves it and it's one of my favorites. I use it in the summer and in the morning and as a primer for makeup ! Leaves my skin feeling soft but not suffocated and smells amazing!!
Great for Oily Skin
M. Parker from Georgia
I have pretty oily skin and most lotion based moisturizers just clog my pores and makes me look greasy but this doesn't at all. My skin feels soft and matte, no shine at all
I will buy again and again and again :)
Sian from Georgia
It's the moisturizer I grab for every AM !! It's like a glass of yummy water for my face every morning . Only con is that it's not hydrating enough for my liking for pm . But it's very ideal for the day time your skin just sucks it right up with out being so heavy . I probablywouldnt recommend or dry skin it's definitely formulated with oily/oily combo or normal skin in mind !!
Becky from La
I have dry skin and it work for you me I just used the the roller thing to massage it in make my skin hydrated and I massage my face with it
This product is okay
Tara from Jackson, TN
I really really really want to like this product. It absorbs into the skin but my skin still feels dry, so I have to use globs of it on my face in order for it to feel moisturized. I would not recommend this for dry skin, however if you don't have dry skin this is the product for you.
Probably not the right
Mich from USA
I only used it once but I couldn't help but wash it off after because my skin felt as if it was stinging or burning which I hadn't experienced with a product before. I gave it a two just because it didn't sting terribly and it's lightweight. Maybe my skin needs to get used to it but I don't know if I want to put it on again. I'm sure this product works well for some people because there are lots of good reviews on it but I think it's just not for me unfortunately!
BrownSugaa from Sylmar, Ca
I see comments saying its really drying. It can be if you put more than you should. A little goes a long way and try to use a facial oil after. Its good under makeup but apply it a couple of hours before. Smells amazing.
Won't Use any other moisturizer in the AM!
Monica from South Carolina
The PERFECT lightweight moisturizer that locks in all my serums in the AM! It leaves my skin soft and naturally glowy with no oily residue. My skin also doesn't get oily for HOURS! :D
best moisturizer ived used
Goblin from no
i have extremely oily and acne prone skin and this is the only one that doesnt break me out and keeps me from being super shiny my only complaint is its very expensive for not a huge amount
Sami from Fort Worth
I have a combo skin type and I do like it to keep my oil at bay. though this is great for summer, I might have to add a little more of another moisturizer just to give my skin the plump it needs, especially when wearing makeup. I started a whole new a.m. and p.m. skin regimen and this was a great addition.
Moriah from OH - Ohio
This product is for Oily, combination/Acne prone skin, if you have dry skin it won't work. I noticed the first time using it that it burned some and I don't have sensitive skin. I thought to myself since it has amino acids in it that I would have to build up a tolerance like retinol, I was right. The second time using it didn't burn as much. Make sure you only use it once a day at first with a gentle cleanser. It is very light weight, and it hasn't broken me out, so if it does I'll update. So far I love this product!
I wouldn't buy this again
Franchesca from Salinas Ca
I tried this product because hyram said it was good for oily skin , however it doesn't maintain the oiliness but when I put it on my skin , my skin feels as if it burning. :(
Made me break out, not very hydrating
Hannah from Minneapolis
I didn't find this particularly moisturizing - it felt like there was nothing on my skin, which is good in that it wasn't heavy, but I also don't know if it actually did anything.
The real problem though was it made me break out. I have used a lot of skin care products and very few have that effect- I also got it with the Ordinary's hyaluronic acid, but that's all. I'm not normally very prone to acne. It's too bad- I was hoping it would be a nice lightweight summer alternative.
best skin care product i own
maria from nj
i use this product right out of the shower. I have an oily tzone and this product makes my skin feel so nice without drying me out or making me more oily.
Best moisturizer for very oily skin
Goblin from Indiana
i have very acne prone skin that is EXTREMELY oily like bad and since using this product i barely get shiny at all and it doesnt irritate my skin or break me out i definitely recommend this to anyone with oily skin
caused breakouts/ blotchy skin
Melanny from Los Angeles
I would not recommend this product, beware!! I have oily, sensitive, acne prone skin and this made my acne and redness flare up. I was using the tatcha water cream (holy grail), but I wanted a cheaper alternative. I saw Hyram's review and decided to try it, but it caused so many small and large blemishes in a matter of 3 days. This was the only product that I changed in my skin care routine, thus I had to return it and buy the tatcha water cream again.
camryn c. from maryland
I have very oily skin and i've never found a moisturizer that works for me until now- i love this!!! it's lightweight and absorbs right into the skin, has a nice fragrance, and feels like magic! would definitely buy again
Drying on my oily skin
Hannah from Knoxville
My skin feels like it would be better without this moisturizer. I'll give it two stars for the lack of fragrance and it's quickness to settle into the skin. It feels like it evaporates right off the surface of my skin though leaving me with tightness.
Monika from Las Vegas, Nevada
This is everything I thought the Tatcha water cream would be but wasn't, it's 100x better & more affective!! I have normal skin with an oily T zone and this moisturizer is perfect for my skin! It's a gel-cream consistency that absorbs quickly while hydrating, leaving a natural glowy finish that isn't dewy or heavy feeling at all. It wears AMAZING under makeup and doesn't peel whatsoever. It also doesn't contain any fragrance in its ingredients but still smells soo good. 10/10 would recommend!
I would NOT recommend
Michelle from Florida
I was expecting a lot from a recomendation from Hyram as he said this product was for oily skin, but this product is SO DRYING to the skin, i dont know why but i didnt work for me (oily, acne prone skin) so just a heads up
My new favorite moisturizer for the fall 😊
Hello Fab😍 from Rva
Love love love this moisturizer it's not to heavy and it smells great I have combination skin and will be buying this again
My Go-To Moisturizer!
Fabmeg from Michigan
I really like that there is no artificial fragrance- I steer clear of fragrance in my skincare but this has a really pleasant smell. It doesn't irritate my skin at all which makes me feel better about the smell! It absorbs into my skin so quickly and takes care of the dryness that comes with using acne cream at night.
