Like the new formula
I like the new formula and the smell people are complaining about is licorice root isn’t it? Also the I would always be worried that the yellow color tinted my face so I’m glad it’s white now.. it takes a while to absorb completely so I use it as a night cream and a lighter gel like cream during the day

This is untrue. The white moisturizer is very bad. Do not buy it. Dan has to bring back the old yellow moisturizer. Period

The change in the formula of the moisturizer was a great choice. No more yellow tone on my skin. The new one blends in perfectly on my skin. Keep up the good work. All your products are great.

Loving the new formula!

Thanks Dan for changing the formula.  I am loving this one.  Not sticky and thick as the old formula.  I will continue to subscribe with the treatment and glycolic acid lotion along with this.  Great job!

Great moisturizer that won’t cause acne!

Best moisturizer I have tried. I use it with the regimen. It does not cause acne. It makes my skin glow. It works well under SPF (I use Cetaphil Dermacontrol SPF 30 on top of it). It fully absorbs in. It does not pill. I think it helps with post acne marks too by fading them with the licochalone. It also has antioxidants which I like.

It took some getting used to

I noticed the moisturizer was different. I thought maybe I got a weird batch and was frantically looking for info online, only to find out what happened in the reviews. It would've been a lot easier to try and adapt if the company had some transparency with it's customers, such as putting in pamphlets to explain the change, or at least writing an article online. I'm not sure if has a pr team.

At first I thought it burned but, I kept observing and kept using it and it's a fairly regular moisturizer, and still doesn't clog my pores, and there was no additional burning apart from that initial try, so it could've been mental. I noticed the slight difference in scent/color.

It's hard to say I wasn't attached to the old formula too. Technically speaking, the current moisturizer is still serving it's purpose from what I can tell.

New Moisturizer

I rarely leave reviews, but for this moisturizer (with Jojoba oil) and regimen, I felt obligated too. I live in NJ where climate gets very cold and dry, and every year for the past 5 years I get extremely dry skin. I would have to apply moisturizers 3 times a day just to keep my skin from flaking. These were high brand moisturizers too, Kheils, Origins, Cerave, etc...Not only is this regimen keeping my acne away in record time, I don't even use two pumps of the moisturizer (as instructed), I tried using just one, and to my surprise, it keeps my skin even and free from any dryness ALL DAY. Mind you temperature drops and dryness here are brutal, and my skin is notoriously dry to the point where it was painful to the touch and to move my face. I can't believe this stuff actually works as well as it does, BUT IT DOES. Follow the directions, and get the results, simple. Cannot thank Dan enough for formulating this acne killing regimen, but most of all this moisturizer which keeps my skin strong and healthy looking even after a large benzoyl peroxide application.

Excellent moisturizer possibly the best

The most current version of this moisturizer is the best product I have ever used concerning moisturizers. Other consistently of the cream and how it absorbs into the skin is perfection. This will be the only moisturizer I use even if I am not using it with the other products from If you have sensitive, dry skin, or just want to moisturize for the benefits this is what you need. A very positive experience! I hope that nothing about this moisturizer changes, I will literally use it the rest of my life!

Agree other than on occasion I add a few drops of vegetable glycerin when I feel like I need to boost the moisturization. It is really only in the winter that it is necessary.

I gave this moisturizer a second chance!!

If you’ve been with for awhile, you remember the original moisturizer before this one. It was the BEST, but then sadly they discontinued it, and I tried this moisturizer and didn’t love it as much. So I started using Cetaphil instead, and did so for several years. A few months ago I needed to order more cleanser and BP. I noticed the moisturizer and thought, “what the heck. It’s been awhile, I’ll give it another try!” Oh my goodness I love it! It’s so much better than Cetaphil and other moisturizers that have come and gone over the years. It has the perfect balance: It moisturizes yet feels light on my skin. I have oily skin and in the past i always needed to use those oil blotting sheets every couple hours. Now I only use 1 a day, sometimes none! This moisturizer is LIFE!!

Exactly. Maybe all of these people with complaints need to evaluate other things they are doing and try to work with the new formula. I have never experienced anything they claim and I actually think this moisturizer is the best overall for daily use that I have used.

Best moisturizer!!

I had a few pimples and started using the regimen it got me all cleared out and now I particularly just use the moisturizer! (Keep in mind I only had a few pimples) I don't use any other moisturizer for the past few years! Give it a try!!

Great for use with adapalene

I started adapalene 0.1% gel two weeks ago and this moisturizer has been a godsend during this retinization period. I overdid it with the adapalene the first week by applying every night, which made my skin tight and red, with some mild swelling around my eyes. Cetaphil moisturizing lotion wasn’t providing enough relief so I switched to’s moisturizer. It was so soothing! It feels light, though still hydrating enough to repair my dryness. Within two days, my skin calmed down. Now, I use adapalene every other day with this moisturizer, and my skin is no longer irritated. It dries quickly on my face and leaves a healthy glow (not an oily sheen). Love this product and so glad I had it around the house when I started a retinoid!
