How to Use
Rated 4.61 out of 5 stars
I am only 28 but I have had a deep wrinkle on my forehead for a few years--I guess I make a lot of expressions! Anyhow, I bought this not for reducing wrinkles but for branching out and trying a new lightweight moisturizer. After 30 days of use, I can tell that the deep divot in my forehead is now smoothed out. While it isn't gone completely, it seems more blended into my skin and isn't as obvious. I think this is due to the ingredient, squalane. Now I wish I had a before and after photo.
I tend to have oily/combo skin and I've liked the balance that this moisturizer provides. It is lightweight but still hydrating, and I wake up with a nice fresh face. I still use an occasional moisture mask during winter, though. I also like the smell of this moisturizer. Others have commented that the marshmallow smell is overwhelming but there is no synthetic fragrance in this product so it is a natural scent. I'm pretty sensitive to fake fragrance smells and this doesn't bother me too much. It is a powerful marshmallow smell at first but will subside.
So I used this moisturizer for a month everyday morning and night. At first I was like wow!! No oiliness when I woke up my, and my skin looked plump. But overall I was disappointed with the product, largely due to the scent. It smells like you're rubbing fluff or icing all over your face. Fragrance is not something I really look for in facial products and this was over the top. I like how it's supposed to be clean Beauty and used recycled plastic packaging, was free from harmful ingredients, but I don't see how there's any way that scent is naturally derived. It's actually the biggest reason I will never purchase this moisturizer again. I was really hopeful. But overall it also just did nothing for my skin, it didn't calm it, didn't decrease redness. It did keep my oils at bay, but at times my face felt dry or tight. In summation, scent is disgusting it literally feels like ur rubbing some form of dessert topping into your pores, doesn't decrease redness, did seem to plump my skin some days and it def did control my oils.

I wanted something to replace my gel moisturizer but this is more of a cream, so don't be fooled by the name. The smell is overly sweet, I feel like a pre-teen putting it on. I suppose I should have anticipated the smell based on the name but it's quite strong. I often feel like I need to reapply and I do not have overly dry skin. Would not recommend this personally.

I haven't been excited about a moisturizer is a LONG TIME! I had got this first as a sample and figured it was for more teenage skin. I am in my 30s and I have normal-dry skin. I was gonna give it away, but something told me just to try it; so I did. I LOVE this product. The scent is pretty sweet, and Marshmellow-y (like in the name), but it doesn't linger. It does a really good job moisturizing. It sinks straight into the skin, which makes it great for during the day and under makeup. BUT I also love it for at night.. I wear a silk night mask to bed and this does not leave any residue on my mask like other very heavy creams. I bought a full size before I even finished my sample.. that's how much I love it!

I have extremely sensitive skin. I hesitate to try nee products because of it but ventured. I am neither enthralled by it's hydrating power nor allergic to it. So, I purchased a full sized after using the travel sized and will give it another month.
MF from Vegas
I received this as a sample and instantly fell in love with it. It smells AHMAZING- light clean vanilla scent. It's cooling on my skin and super hydrating. I have sensitive skin and this doesn't irritate at all. I love it! Can't wait to buy more :)
Nae from Boston MA
I wanted to love this since it had so many good reviews, but I've been using it for a week and it's already causing breakouts in areas where I have been acne free for years. Also makes my skin appear oily which I don't like

I have super dry skin so this helps a lot. A little goes a long way and it smells so good :))
Sav from Kansas
I bought this during the 25 Days of Beauty on sale. It seemed to be a good fit for my dry and extra-sensitive skin type, and the cooling aspect sounded lovely for a sweaty gal like myself. I was sorely mistaken -- this caused a near-immediate allergic reaction upon first application. Redness and sensitive-to-the-touch hives spread around my face and neck area and still haven't gone away, even after several days of healing skincare treatments. What a bummer, because I loved everything else about it, particularly how it felt moisturizing and refreshing on my skin. I suppose I should've studied the ingredients more, but these kinds of ingredients usually work well for me. Long story short, I don't recommend this for anyone with my skin type. It's not worth the risk.

im 21 with sensitive combination skin. I was nervous to try the banana is how my holy grail and I don't think I could ever live without it. just buy it!

I have dry, dehydrated skin and while this moisturizer was nice, I don't think it was the best one out there for me personally. I blew through the container pretty quickly and just felt "meh" about it the whole time through. The finish is nice (not greasy, just a nice hydrated plumpness to the skin), and it does hydrate the skin, but just not enough for my skin type. I also experienced slight irritation with it every time I applied it, where my skin would sting very lightly and get red but it all went away within a minute or so. I'm not sure if it's because of the marshmellowy scent of it or something else. I love Kinship and will continue to buy from their brand, but this moisturizer isn't something I will likely purchase again for my personal use! I would recommend this more so to anyone with a normal skin type, or dehydrated oily skin types :)

I can't get enough of this stuff. It goes on silky smooth and gives me lightweight, soothing moisture. I have irritable combination skin and this keeps my redness down without making me oily. The smell is nice and subtle and it leaves me with a fresh dewy glow. Honestly SO much better than moisturizers I've bought for twice the price.
Anna Nyeste from USA
I almost drooled when I first opened this! It smells DELICIOUS! It felt cool, refreshing, & light when I applied it. Perfectly moisturizing without being too heavy. I love it!
claire from USA
i have pretty dry skin so i don't normally go for gel moisturizers, but i am in love with this cream!! it has a pretty strong marshmallow-y sent that certainly isn't for everyone, but for me personally, i like going to sleep smelling like a marshmallow!
Mature Mary from Central New Jersey
It's a gel cream moisturizer that smells like a jar of marshmallow fluff, which is why I deducted 2 stars. Thankfully the smell doesn't last long but the initial application is a bit much. Sinks into your skin fairly quickly with minimal sticky and tacky skin. My skin looks plump. Doesn't inter with my sunscreen or makeup. In other words, no pilling.
I am in the mid 50's with aging, combo dehydrated skin if that helps anyone out there.
It's a good product but I can't say I am a fan of it. My search continues.

I really wanted to love this cream since their sunscreen has been my go to lately, but I don't love it, and I can't understand all the 5 star reviews. This gel-cream feels like pudding, and not I'm a good way. I struggled to get it to absorb, even using a minimalamount, it still left a tacky, sticky residue behind. I tried using it as a night cream, since it felt too heavy for daytime, but after using it for a few days, I got some white heads along my jawline and cheeks, which I'm really sore about because I struggled so long to get my breakouts under control. The scent is nice, but not needed, honestly. I looked at the ingredients, and I don't know why they recommend it for problem skin, since it contains coconut oil which is highly comedogenic. Bottom line, pimple friends, my opinion is to stay away from this.
Jessie Bobenmoyer from USA
This moisturizer has completely changed my skin for the better. I have combination skin, very dry where it's dry and very oily in the T zone prone to breakouts and whatever magic in this is completely balancing and hydrating, but so lightweight and literally makes my skin as soft as a marshmello. After experimenting for years, I've finally found a product that performs that doesn't break me out. Get this moisturizer.
Hayley Massucco from USA
Alright as a moisturizer, my skin needs something a lot more intense though. Good for midday hydration
ALEX from USA
The texture is like a delicate pudding, I love it. My skin feels soft, smooth, and hydrated.
Soph from USA
I've just finished this moisturizer (it lasted about 2 months) and I am completely in love. I was searching for a moisturizer that would fit my skin type but also be from a brand that values sustainability and Is cruelty-free. This moisturizer ticked all my boxes and it smells absolutely incredible (however if you really don't like sweet scents then I would take that into consideration). It also kept my dry cheeks hydrated and my forehead's oiliness at bay. I will definitely repurchase, thank you Kinship for an amazing product!
Aklace from TX
After searching for the perfect moisturizer to get my daughter (she has dry,sensitive skin),this kept popping up.I was really hoping it wouldn't be a gimmicky dessert-scented cream but reviews said otherwise so I took a chance.Ok so I got it for her but it's in my bathroom so..I use it once in awhile.Turns out the marshmallow scent is mild and it's actually very good moisturizer.Love the feel and the smell! Kinship nailed this one!
Alyssa K from USA
My skin is combination and really sensitive so I was worried about this formula, but it's exactly what I was looking for! Super hydrating, dries down really well, and actually good at controlling the oil in my t-zone? It also smells sweet-unexpected perk.
Mackensie Vanderpool from USA
10/10 recommend it smells like marshmallows and it feel really light, i have oily and dry skin but my skin is more oily than dry and this moisturizer has not made my skin feel like it's clogged like my last moisturizer which was the cerva did, so yes definitely recommend more for oily skin, but if you have more dry skin i'd keep looking because you'll probably need a lot of this moisturizer to actually help with the dryness and you'd probably have to keep buying more and more of this product in bulk, i'm not saying it won't help with your dry skin but what i'm saying is it won't help with your bank account is you have more dry skin than oily 🌸
Raquel from Florida
This worked for the first week, after that it went downhill fast. First thing I did not like was the scent, wasn't a bad scent but it was a bit too strong for me and it lingers. I liked how lightweight it was and that it had enough hydration for being a gel cream consistency, my skin didn't feel tight or dry. I really thought this would be new favorite, until I started to get really bad breakouts. My skin started to sting when I applied it and get red which usually never happens. I was getting pimples all over my checks and between my brows. Normally I only get a few hormonal breakouts during my period but this was all over my face and painful.

It was great until I started breaking out with cystic acne.....
Cat from USA
The moisturize works very well but its smell gave me headaches.
Celeste from USA
I love this moisturizer! It's goes well with my sunscreen and my makeup, A little goes along way so it'll last for awhile! And my face feels so soft and smooth and I smell like fresh baked muffins c: (I know it's meant to smell my marshmallows but it kind smells like muffins to me!)
