Most Helpful Positive Review Best Cream I Have Tried So Far!♥️
Hey, it's Glamorous Gem, I hope you enjoy this review and hope this helps you in your purchase decision.
Anyway, let me first start by saying, I absolutely love the packaging. It is pink and white with everything you need to know on it. I love that the ingredients as well as any symbols and tags were very visible. It is very simple and very trustworthy thing to see in packaging. Eventhough, it is in a plastic/acrylic jar, it is very sturdy and I love the clear design. Being able to see the cream before hand is a major plus for me.
I love that it is from the Honest Company. I know it is very clean and environmentally friendly. It is a very established and trusted brand for me. The cream has no scent whatsoever as well as no chemical traces which is a good thing compared to
others I have tried.
I feel like the benefits are quite abundant with this cream. When applied, it makes your skin feel very soft, supple and moisturised. It takes a couple moments for it to set in. But when it does, it provides a beautiful glow while also easily sinking into your pores.
I also love that it doesn't feel very clogging, its very lightweight in when applied and with its consistency.
Compared to other gel creams like Loreal Hydragenius and Garnier Moisture Rescue. They can be too watery or too thick.
I like this one because it has a gelatin consistency that feels thick, but when rubbing it in on your face. It feels closer to a watery gel. It's not runny at all though. It merely sinks in well compared to others I have tried.
It's a major battle with oily skin, so I am glad that it is made without, Parabens, Mineral Oil, Synthetic Fragrances, Silicone, Dyes, or Pretroleum. It is basically stripped clean, yet it still provides amble moisture without all the things that can make you breakout. It's very soothing. So, it is quite amazing to use. No negative reactions of any kind with little to no residue. This is the type to use on my whole family. Definitely, no complaints.
I haven't seen any other creams like it. Either way, I would definitely buy this product if it was available and I highly recommend it for anyone with oily skin or sensitive skin. Younger, Older, Friends and Family. It is an absolute must to have for anyone 🙂
Most Helpful Critical Review Only for very dry skin
This cream is so greasy on my skin. I wanted to like it so much. The texture is thick but light enough, and it seemed like at least a nice night cream. I've tried it for 3 days in a row, and every time my skin is SO greasy and oily. It literally feels wet. The cream does not sink into my skin at all, no matter how much I massage it. Hours later, no change. My skin runs a little bit dry, but this cream is too heavy for even my driest areas. I would recommend it for those with very (!) dry skin or for winter in dry climates - definitely not for mild dryness.

This Ain't It
Hope from Boulder, CO
I have sensitive skin so I am always looking for the most basic/light/minimal ingredient formulas. This is my third purchase with Honest beauty and as much as I love the concept I continuously am disappointed by how subpar all of their products are. I don't have a lot of money to spend and now I have the entire jar of this and it feels pointless and hollow to use. So, if you are looking for a new daily moisturizer on a budget look elsewhere.
Perfect for my very dry skin!
Abby from Portland, OR
I have used this only a few times and I am amazed at the effect on my skin. I have dry, dull skin and this made my skin feel actually hydrated. It's thick and was a little sticky for a few minutes after application, but those are nothing when I felt my skin the next morning.
In love with this cream
Skylar from Oklahoma
I enjoyed this cream so much more than I thought I would! It feels so amazing once rubbing the cream in it feels like water. This really helped my skin with dryness. A little bit goes a long way.
Great moisturizer and great value
Rosy from Washington, D.C.
I have combo oily skin and use this only at night because it's too thick for me for daytime use. I love that it's fragrance free and keeps my skin really moisturized overnight. Good ingredients, too!
It's a no for me
Hunterbloom from Texas
I liked how it turns into a hydrating water like texture, BUT it made me break out. It didn't not effect the texture of my skin, but it did cause deep under the skin tiny bumps that turned red and were actually very sensitive to getting aggravated. Had to return :(
Best Moisturizer I've Used So Far
Steph from MS
So far I really love this product. No added fragrance or essential oils, it has good ingredients, and it gets along really well with my skin. I tend to be oily in warmer months and dry in cooler months. I've used it during both and it does great. I will say that during the hottest months when it was really humid, I used this at night and something else during the day when I knew I was going to be out and about in the heat. But overall this has been the best for my skin. It hydrates and absorbs quickly without feeling heavy or greasy. It doesn't leave an unpleasant heavy tackiness but instead leaves my skin feeling plump/supple with just a hint of a very slight tacky/moisturized feeling which I actually like. It feels healthy and hydrated and looks it as well.
Would definitely recommend this product and will be repurchasing again.
Jill from chicago, IL
This stuff is awesome. I use a different water cream in the morning because this one is a bit heavy, but this one is PERFECT for night time. It is heavy enough for a good over night cream but does not clog my pores. This is a great moisturizer... especially as the winter months approach!
Lili from San Jose CA
This product truly works wonders. It is lightweight but still provides continuous moisture throughout the day. It also gives a beautiful glow to the skin. I would recommend this to anyone with normal to dry skin. This is a must-have!
Not for my skin : (
Felicia from LA
I really want to love this but I don't think my skin likes it 100%...It has a cream like texture and then melt into a more watery form on the skin, and I liked that. While it did make my face smoother and softer, it seemed to also aggravate the existing dry patches on my face at the same time...Kinda weird that different parts of the face reacted differently. Will have to return : (
cc from CT
My fav moisturizer at the moment! So hydrating yet not heavy on the skin at all. Great ingredients list too
K from GA
I am on my third jar of this moisturizer. It's lightweight but keeps my skin hydrated all day. It doesn't break me out or have a greasy feeling to it. Seriously the best moisturizer I've ever used.
Wonderful basic hydrating moisturizer
The Cosmetic Ninja from Lockport, IL
A wonderful cream at a wonderful price! A nice moisturizer to use when you are using retinol serums or vitamin c and don't want to overwhelm your skin.
Lisa from Bay Area
The consistency is not what I expected for this product. When you first put this cream on it feels thick but as your rub it in it gets a little more light and watery. After you rub it in it just feels as though it is sitting on your face and not really getting soaked. It didn't break out my skin or anything but it also didn't improve it or make it feel any different.
Ashley from Arkansas
I haven't used this under makeup yet but I'm just not impressed. It's super thick and sticky when putting it on and then turns to a watery consistency and is just weird. It looks greasy sitting on my face.
My Forever Moisturizer
:) from USA
I started using Panoxyl about 4 months ago. I noticed that my moisturizer at the time was not hydrating/moisturizing enough to use with that cleanser. That is when I decided to try the hydrogel cream.
and OMG! This moisturizer keeps my skin hydrated and moisturized all day/night.
I can go on and on about this moisturizer, but this review will be way to long.
It's an amazing product!!!!
Will continue to buy forever
RS from Connecticut
I have true oily skin. Not combo- just oily. I am very insistent on only using clean ingredient skin care- so finding the right moisturizer has been a lifelong nightmare. I'll admit the first two nights I used this it felt a bit thick and filmy but I'm glad I stuck it out because suddenly my skin just drank it up and I would wake up with a moisturized, non greasy face. I was originally using this at night and tatcha water cream during the day until I was prescribed a retinoid cream for hormonal acne. I ditched the water cream and now use this as my day and night cream. It didn't break me out during my oily days, and it calmed and moisturized my dry, irritated skin through my retinoid days. For this reason, I really love this stuff and think it's great for all skin types. The fact that it's rated a 1 on EWG just makes it an A+++ product for me - and it's the first moisturizer I've ever repurchased.
Really nice, probably won't repurchase
Rockymtnmani from Aurora, CO
This is a great product just not for me. I got this to use as a daytime moisturizer which it definitely can do. The issue I have is the consistency changes from a nice occlusive to a weird watery consistency. I'm sure this is part of the hydrogel intentions it's just not my favorite experience. Overall good at what it does.
Perfect for my dehydrated skin
Erika from California
I see a few negative reviews about the texture, but the texture is actually one of my favorite parts of using this product. It starts as a light cream and then melts into liquid as you rub into your skin - it's really quite cool and fun to use, but I get how that may not be for everyone. It is very moisturizing and perfect for my very dry/dehydrated skin and I find that it wears fine under makeup. If you have oily skin i don't think this will be a good choice for you.
Good night time moisturizer
corn from VA
I have sensitive, oily skin and actually prefer a thicker moisturizer for night time. this feels nice and moisturizing, it leaves the skin looking rather shiny but since i'm wearing it to bed i don't mind. it can feel a tiny bit greasy if you apply too much. it feels cooling upon application which i'm not crazy about, but there's no fragrance and the ingredients seem pretty nice. I do wish it was in pump form so it'd be easier to use!
Kay from IL
I have semi sensitive acne prone skin and this definitely helps heal your skin with hydrating! I love it and definitely recommend!
Perfect for moderate eczema skin types!
Desert Face from California
This stuff is Thick, and that's perfectly fine for me! I get eczema break outs, and this doesn't sting. It actually helps to soothe and heal my skin, but I can see it going very wrong for anybody with normal to oily skin. One drop of water will thin out the cream though, and make it easier to apply if you don't like the thickness.
Will never, ever buy this again
Jackie from Florida
I truly despise this moisturizer. It's oppressively thick, but also gets watery as you try to rub it in-leading to an unfortunate combination of greasy and under-moisturized skin. Not for me.
Love, love, love!!!
Cece from TX
Love the cooling effect when you put it on. It is one of the 2 creams that don't cause break outs. Great for sensitive skin and new favorite moisturizer!! Will be purchase over and over.
