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
After a terrible visit to my dermatologist where I asked if my issues were related to fungal acne and was insulted and told there was no way it was fungal acne, I was desperate. Everything the doctor had given me wasn't helping at all and was actually making my skin worse. I was so frustrated and depressed, and didn't even want to leave the house most days. After scouring the internet for a solution, I came upon Malezia. I was very nervous about ordering from a company with very little presence on the internet, but I was desperate and the reviews gave me hope. The shipping was very, very fast and I was grateful for that. The moisturizer and BP cream are absolutely amazing. I'm really bad about leaving reviews, but I couldn't let this one go since these products have truly given me my lofe back. My skin is COMPLETELY clear now. I couldn't be more happy. I'm going to order more right now. Thank you x10000000 for creating these products!!!!!!!!
The best, light, hydrating, doesn’t break my sensitive face out!
Absolutely love this moisturizer. My P. Folliculitis is very triggered by products - I'll get breakouts within 1 day if I use the wrong products. I also have acne rosacea and prone to typical acne breakouts also, so I have to be so particular with what I put on my skin. That being said, this moisturizer is perfection! Can you please make a larger size?! I fly through still stuff since I use on face, neck, and chest 2x a day
I bought this about 6 months ago. Let me tell you that this is the only moisturizer that has worked for my fungal acne. It is light weight and the little pimples did not flare up. Thank you for this product.
This is the only set that has worked for my combination acne. It’s very cost effective and works loads better than anything else we’ve tried. The amount of research that has gone into these products, as well as any other skincare/makeup products is a library of information. We’re anxiously awaiting a cleanser to add to the treatment and moisturizer.
I've been liking the product ok, but I was disappointed when I opened it and found the brown discoloration at the opening. This wasn't a cheap product.
Great product - doesn't irritate or cause flare ups
I have both Seb Derm and KP. This totally cured my Seb Derm (using both products together) and got my KP under control more than anything else. I use it on my arms and legs for KP as well and it helps a lot- I use a pea sized amount that I split half for each upper arm after exfoliating in the shower- same thing for the backs of my legs, and only after I shower. Works great. Please never go out of business, this is the only thing that's worked for either issue.
After spending ridiculous amounts of money on other moisturizers, I'd almost given up on ever finding the right fit for my sensitive skin. This stuff is amazing and addictive -- soothing and hydrating while staying super-light. It's worth every penny. Please never stop making it!
It's too soon for me to post a before and after photo, but this stuff is beyond incredible. I have fungal acne, extremely dry skin, AND rosacea, as well as the occasional non-fungal (IE actual) acne breakout. Finding products that work for my skin is like searching for a needle in a haystack. This moisturizer is IT! It's even gentler on my skin than the Hado Labo moisturizer, and much more hydrating too. Please never stop making this -- I'm a customer for life!
