She cute.... and long awaited. The infamous "urea moisturizer" created by f.c. himself! This product underwent several dozen formulations before its current iteration. *Cue this isn't my final form meme. 😏
Its star ingredient is urea, a molecule found in the skin's natural moisturizing factor (NMF) that plays an integral role in improving skin barrier function.
Urea is one of those magical unicorn ingredients with the ability to both hydrate AND mildly exfoliate. It's so effective as a hydrator, in fact, that it outperforms vaseline in some studies. (1)
For more information about all things urea, please see our blog post on Simple Skincare Science.
Other key features!
- Glycerin: works synergistically with urea for added hydration and smoothing effect. (2)
- Dimethicone: creates a protective barrier and locks in moisture.
- Hyaluronic acid: hydrates skin by attracting 1000 times its weight in water.
- Allantoin: skin-soothing and stabilizes urea.
- Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride: an emollient that softens skin. It took us months to find, but we're happy to report that our caprylic/capric triglyceride is as pure as it gets and contains no trace amount of C12-24 fatty acids :)
INCI: Water, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Urea, Glycerin, Dimethicone, Sodium Polyacrylate, Cyclopentasiloxane, Trideceth-6, PEG/PPG-18/18 Dimethicone, Phenoxyethanol, Allantoin, Hyaluronic Acid, Ethylhexylglycerin
The only moisturizer that my skin doesn't hate after years of trying to find something! Breakouts are nearly gone :)
It’s a bit of a splurge but this is the best moisturizer I’ve ever used!
I’m hopeful about this product but I literally just got it, not used it at all, and this is the full amount of product??? I don’t understand the size of the bottle compared to product. Also there was no safety seal & there was already product gooped/jellied around the lid before I even opened it.
I love having a moisturizer I can trust to not inflame my skin :) I also love their BP- so perfect! I can’t wait for the new product to come out as well!
I struggled to keep my dry and eczema prone skin hydrated, then learned about fungal acne. It all lead here, and I can now say my skin is soft, hydrated and fungal-acne free!
I came across this website back in July when I first started dealing with fungal acne. I wish I had bought the moisturizer and treatment then! At the time, I was over buying product after product with no improvement to my skin and now traumatized moisture barrier. As a bit of a skincare fanatic, this was an entirely new challenge and I was not prepared. By November, my skin was showing improvement but the fungal acne was still lingering and popping up. I decided to try these products as a last resort before finally calling my dermatologist. Within a week, the only marks still remaining on my face are almost healed spots from my most persistent breakout areas. No new breakouts, old breakouts gone, skin tone and moisture barrier back to normal! I am so thankful I came back and I am so impressed. Will be using regularly from now on.
I have never written a review before but this beand and their products are the only thing that saved my face. I had seriously bad hormonal acne and also my skin breaks out like crazy when I use any products with oil. This brand is one of the best I have their moisturizer and acne cream already and I hope they come out with a face wash too. Best ever i recommend it to everyone!!!
Really nice - I have reordered twice. I have really sensitive skin and this does not irritate at all. Does not exacerbate my breakouts, lightweight but very moisturizing. Highly recommend.
I have been searching for a skincare routine that works for me for years--the search is over! My skin looks and feels better than ever!
It took about two weeks to see an unmistakable difference.
Thank you so much for making these products! Life saver!
My fiancé has suffered with fungal acne for years. The moisturizer and benzoyl peroxide cream have been his holy grail items. He now has way less breakouts and his skin looks less inflamed. Can't wait to see the product line expand!
