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
Very nice, makes skin very smooth and woorks both night and day. Love this
Nothing else to say, speechless, I hope it don’t happen to any of you.
I discovered Melazia via F.C.’s study (I don’t think calling it a blog gives enough validation), I overhauled my entire routine based on the recommendations and also chose to use their two products (BP treatment and Urea moisturizer). I saw almost instant results in just the recession of inflammation, crusting. The tubes are tricky to work with but after opening them a few times all good, maybe they were under pressure from the manufacturing process but the moisturizer shot out and got wasted a little. The consistency is lovely, no smell, excellent feel on the skin, zero irritation. I will be purchasing again and would love a full skin care and cosmetics line because you know what you’re doing F.C. I will post pics in the future but I’m too embarrassed still. I am trying to heal the lesions so I can begin to heal scars. You’ve helped me start that process and I now for the first time after 20 years of struggling feel I have hope I could have beautiful skin one day. I live behind my skin, feel constantly judged, I tell myself it’s Gods way of keeping me humble but it’s hard when it affects my family or even my partner (wanting lights off, not wanting to be looked at up close, no pictures, noooo selfies). You really don’t know how much you’ve helped me and I thank the universe for you and Melazia.
Have been using this as a moisturizer after adapalene for clearing up closed comedones. It’s very nice and moisturizing and I wish more products had Urea in them, but this is a standout amongst them.
About 8 months ago, I got tired of trying new products and getting the same results: skin still dry, still breaking out in a thousand tiny bumps. So I wanted to get rid of as much comedogenic ingredients in my routine as possible. Malezia is one of the few brands that offers products without these ingredients, and this moisturizer specifically is THE BEST!! Overtime my skin cleared up and is now the least dry it’s ever been. It’s literally the ONLY moisturizer I trust. I’ve been through like 4 tubes already and will continue to support this brand. Truly my holy grail product.
I suffer from seborrheic dermatitis and fungal acne and in just 2 weeks the regimen has really improved my skin. I add in the niacinamide + zinc serum by the ordinary and it leaves me so glowy! The benzoyl peroxide can be a bit drying for my skin so I only use it every other day, but the moisturizer is great at hydrating my skin. Overall it simplified my skincare routine too, which I love. The price point is good and I’ll definitely be ordering more when I run out <3
this is the only moisturizer that has not irritated my skin while on accutane! it doesn’t break me out, and it has such a nice glowy finish I’m obsessed
While I'm enjoying the moisturizer itself, I have issue with the way it is packaged. Upon opening for the first time a huge air bubble burst out, along with 20% of the product. I've had plenty of similar type tubes and have never had this problem. Very disapointing.
I was suffering from tiny bumps on my cheeks, forehead and upper lip area. Not even what my dr prescribed me worked. Found this company from tik tok and i never looked back. Here are my before and after. I keep up almost every day and my skin looks great! I will forever be purchasing thank you!
I'm in my 40s and I've tried many different products. This moisturizer is deeply hydrating and doesn't break me out, which has been impossible for me to find up until now!
