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

Smooth and Easy - what can I say.

I've been reading f.c.'s blog for quite a while... off and on... as my teenagers have been terrorized by acne. With so much information out there, I found this blog to be not only informative but kinda quirky funny which stood out and kept my attention. My #1 kid went to the dermatologist many times and tried many prescriptions which work some of the time. Kid #2 comes along and reaches puberty and low and behold, here comes the acne in full force. This mask wearing business doesn't seem to help, but they like masks because it hides the you know what. I was sooooo happy to see that f.c. and his team have put their product on the market and I have to tell you, after 1 week we are seeing results in kid #2 who is 14 years old. He loves the moisturizer.... in his low-cracking voice: "it doesn't burn". We went easy on the Benzoyl Peroxide Treatment at first, not really knowing how his skin would react. But low and behold, he can tolerate it and is really loving the results. We went from a kid who hates showers and anything to do with washing his face to a kid who knows that sticking to a routine with something that works... and is gentle...really gentle and easy on his skin...means results. He even likes sharing it with me... I'm not just saying that. We'll see what happens in the next month, but so far so good! I may need to buy my own moisturizer- mom size.

To the person reading this who has lost all hope that they could have clear skin again and is ready to accept defeat, this is for you. Don't give up!
I know it's obnoxiously long, but the moral of the story is at the bottom.

For reference, I'm a 23 year old girl who has never had much issue with acne, relatively speaking. Occasional breakouts in the awkward, ugly, teenage years... but never anything crazy, until 2020. Cue the face diapers and utter chaos. Within 3 weeks of the 'start' of the pandemic, my skin took a proverbial dump. The biggest issue has been tons of bumps. So, as one would, I started treating my skin for clogged pores/blackheads. Physically exfoliating, harsh chemical exfoliants, and my dermatologist gave me a tretinoin + antibiotic gel because I was getting huge, painful cystic pimples that would hang around *forever*.
No improvement after 8 months, by now its Summer 2021.
Prescribed oral antibiotics --> no improvement; tiny bumps multiplied.
Prescribed Spironolactone to control oil --> little improvement in bumps; still getting cysts.
So I decided to figure this out on my own and experiment. I tried oil cleansing. The first couple days went good, then the bumps got worse. They were no longer mainly at my jaw/chin, but now moving to my cheeks/temples/forehead. I read oil cleansing can cause purge, so give it time. My skin 3 weeks later? Trash.
At this point I was giving up, but would drive myself insane looking for any suggestions on the internet. My anxiety surrounding my skin was so bad. Sometimes I would just cry.. its so frustrating when nothing helps.
One day I landed on F.C.'s article about fungal acne. PLEASE read it if you're in a similar situation! That article is/was describing my skin. I swallowed my pride and went all in. I put away my old products, went to Target ASAP and bought Vanicream Gentle Cleanser and Dr. Eddies HappyCappy shampoo. Then I ordered Malezia products.
While waiting for them, I started using the new stuff. I use HappyCappy as a mask for 5ish minutes twice a day. After only 2 days, the amount / size of bumps was drastically decreased. This whole time I just needed cradle cap shampoo for babies. Cool.
I started incorporating Malezia products exactly one month ago from today. My skin doesn't feel like sandpaper anymore. I don't cringe when applying products and I feel my skins texture. My uneven skin tone is starting to even out. I haven't had a single cystic pimple. My moisture barrier that I had destroyed is starting to repair as time goes on. And the bumps are going away. *crying*
I have seen unbelievable improvement over the past month just from these simple (and very affordable) changes in my skincare routine.
It is going to take time, but I know my skin will be clear again someday. Malassezia folliculitis, seborrheic dermatitis, fungal acne, satanic microbes - whatever you want to call it - can kiss my ass.
Thank you F.C. and the Malezia team.

Buy it now!

This is hands down the best moisturizer I’ve ever tried. It is so light, non-greasy and yet so moisturizing. A little goes a long way. Even if you don’t have fungal acne, you should try it. A definite repurchase for me.

Love it for the Spring & Summer

I bought this when it launched and it worked wonderfully during the spring and summer. Now that it's winter near me and getting much colder and drier, I'm sadly finding this isn't keeping me moisturized throughout the day or night with vaseline. I have very dry and sensitive skin and am prone to having issues with my moisture barrier when the weather changes-- so if anyone is like me be prepared to have to use other products to compensate.

Updating old review - it's totally 5* now

In a previous review I only gave 4* because I noticed a strong (albeit neutral) scent in my first few tubes.
I think I'm on tube #10 and I haven't noticed any more odors in ages. I must be used to it now/perhaps urea was such a new ingredient to me that I was sensitive to any odors.
The moisturizer works and lasts and I keep buying more! Forever it will be a holy grail product.

Thank you!

I first heard about this product on reddit and even though I'm in Europe I thought I might try it. I had very irritable skin and always a few blemishes. I thought that blackheads were just something I have to live with. After two weeks my skin became what I now call my new normal. I cannot imagine going back to what it was was before Malezia. Thank you!

From a skeptic to a believer

I didn’t really believe in using moisturizer since I thought “my skin is oily already”. But after researching and trying different types of moisturizer that are “acne safe”, this product not only reduced my acne so much, it gave me the confidence to practice better skin care without worrying of bad breakouts. I def recommend this as an acne veteran for over 10 years.

Found the secret!

I have been struggling with horrific acne since I got covid and it turned fungal. I felt lost and at my wits end.
I found this product through Tik tok and was hesitant at first but it’s been AMAZING. I’m a customer for life! Thank you! My results are only two weeks difference!

Holy grail

This is seriously the only moisturizer that works for me. Every other one I’ve tried, even the FA safe ones, have broke me out. It would be nice if one day they would come out with a richer one for winter. For now I’ll continue to add a bit of squalene instead to get the level I need. Seriously though I am so grateful for this, it’s saved my skin!
