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
Wow! It’s finally happened. A moisturizer that doesn’t break me out. I thought I would never see the day. More than a year after accutane that gave me very dry skin, I was still getting minor breakouts and congestion. It’s difficult to find a moisturizer that will sufficiently moisturizer but also not clog pores for my acne-prone, dry skin type. This moisturizer used alongside differin gel has completely transformed my skin. I couldn’t be happier!
i am so glad this store exists 😭 pls keep making these i need these to be a staple in my life
I've been curious to try this for a long time, I like to try different Skincare for both Acne prone skin & anti-aging . I've tried so many, but I think this combination is gentle & soothing on my skin. I am actually surprised by the moisturizer, I really like the way it feels & how my skin looks after. Makeup applies smoothly on top of it. I'm glad I took chance to try this benzoyl peroxide & Moisturizer. I appreciate the reasonable prices.. I hope you come up with an anti-dark spot, nuacinamuse & vitamin C. I'll be the first to order it. I plan to order more of the benzoyl peroxide & moisturizer again.
I've waited around 5 months to post this. I wanted to be sure it wasn't a fluke, or jinx everything with a premature review. I've suffered from acne since i became a teenager, and when I day I've tried every ingredient, supplement and "at home hack" to get rid of it, I mean it. I went on 2 rounds of accutane but the acne always came back in full force after a year. Tretinoin and azelaic acid helped to at least keep it at a moderate-ish point, but it was always such a delicate balance where i felt like if i even looked at my skin wrong, it would erupt. Dec 2021 was my breaking point after I caved and saw a derm, who put me on a long list of antibiotics and topicals that made my skin, and even eyes, burn.
So I splurged and bought the moisturizer and BP. I've spent hundreds over the years on my skin and it all didn't work, so if these were to disappoint, it'd just be like a usual occurrence. I started at the beginning of jan and from day 1, my skin felt immediately calmer, and I don't think that's just from confirmation bias after reading all the positive reviews here. It took 3 months (march) for the acne to completely disappear, and now in May, I'm still completely clear. My skin glows, all my friends keep wondering what I'm using and I'm (aggressively lol) telling anyone that asks, that they should give this a try. I'll be eternally, eternally grateful.
Let me start off by saying that I had never had skin problems until about 4 years ago…like I used to wash my face with drug store face wash and call it a day so when I studdenly got acne on my face I had no idea where to start. So for 2 years my acne got worse and I tried everything under the sun to help it. I then met with a holistic dermatologist and she told me I had fungal acne and all of the things I was trying for 2 years was making it worse. She put me on a face routine and also recommended Malezia’s products. After 2 months my face changed so much and after 4 months my acne was completely gone. I cannot recommend this product enough for what it’s done for my face and my self esteem. The customer service is wonderful as well ❤️
Its a very nice moisturizer , not too heavy , and my skin has been glowing ever since I started using it . Occurrences of acne I noticed went down even though its not meant for acne its just a good moisturizer . 10/10 would recommend
During a life time of on and off eczema, the past 2+ years have been really difficult with recalcitrant rashes that haven't responded to my usual go-tos. Long story short, I investigated the possibility of a malassezia overgrowth, and my search for an excellent moisturizer that wouldn't feed the yeast brought me to Simple Skin care, and then here.
I've been so grateful to add this excellent exfoliator/moisturizer to my routine. It's really helping as I work on getting my skin back to health. The combination of ingredients is great, yes to urea and hyaluronic acid! And the glycerin and dimethicone smooth and lock in the moisture my skin so desperately needs right now.
When dealing with flares, I sometimes end us using creams and emollients that don't feel great, just to deal with the worst of the symptom du jour. This isn't one of those. I love the product's texture, the pretty and sophisticated packaging...with the huge bonus of being designed to have a low environmental impact, and minimal waste.
So glad I've found Malezia.
Definitely does work
It’s been 2 weeks using the urea moisturizer + ben perox treatment and the last 2 days my husband has said multiple times, “wow your skin really looks clearer!” I’ve noticed. I’m thrilled others are noticing. Less blemishes, more even and less redness on my nose and cheeks. I wish I’d found Malezia products before I spent $200 on a facial that did nothing! Using the moisturizer daily, the benzol cream as needed and haven’t used the key yet, might seem more useful when there is less in the tube?
After a lifetime of clear skin, I've been on a rollercoaster with my skin the past 7-8 months. Long story short, I developed a stubborn case of perioral dermatitis that resulted in a month of antibiotic usage....which then resulted in (what I now know as) a bad case of fungal acne. My skin was coated in bumps, starting with my nose and then eventually developing all over my forehead (basically all oily zones). For the past 6 months I had no idea what the bumps all over my face were, but it seemed like I was suddenly "allergic" to every product I previously used and everything was just making my skin worse. I even went two months with using basically zero product, and STILL the bumps persisted. Fast forward to a few weeks ago when I stumbled upon f.c.'s blog and it was like a lightbulb went off. I cut out all my non FA safe makeup/products and I ordered the urea moisturizer. I was nervous to order the BP gel because my skin has historically been sensitive to actives (Due to Rosacea) but ended up ordering the BP treatment gel and the difference in my skin has been has been amazing. I started off for the first week with just the moisturizer and a gentle anti dandruff shampoo and then once the BP treatment gel arrived, switched to just using the moisturizer and gel with a gentle cleanser. I use the moisturizer morning and night and do 10 minutes of contact treatment with the BP gel at night as my skin barrier is very weak right now. I had about a 1-2 weeks of purging (nothing major, just a slight increase in bumps around my face), and now my skin is SO much clearer. I'm one who usually gives up on a product at the first sign of bumps, but I encourage you to push through this time because it's pretty expected! The bumps all over my nose are gone, my forehead only has a few remaining bumps, and my chin is finally clearing up. For someone who has spent over half a year trying to figure out my skin, I can finally say I'm getting my confidence back.
