Physician Insight

Physician image

Emollience is the perfect everyday moisturizer for dry skin. It utilizes grape seed, rose hip and macadamia nut oils to restore skin hydration while algae and essentials oils help nourish and calm – all without leaving oily residue. I recommend it under Triple Lipid Restore 2:4:2 for very dry or compromized skin. It's a staple in my skin care regimen.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Something has changed! :( I have used and LOVED Emollience for 10 years. I like the texture, the smell is divine and it lasts a long time. I just purchased a new jar and it's different. The texture feels thicker and it smells like a different product, like a hint of Noxzema smell. I sent one jar back because the smell was so bad. I bought another one from a local source, thinking maybe the other place had old stock. The locally bought jar didn't smell right either. Have you changed the formula? I'm really sad about the difference and won't be buying it any more. For 10 years I would give it five stars. But not any more. :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SkinCeuticals is my main brand for skin care. I use the Simply Clean because my skin is dry and it really helps to cleanse my face and pores without drying me out. I use equalizing toner to help balance the pH back into my skin. I use c e ferulic as my vitamin C because it actually sinks into the dermis to help improve skin turn over, reduce signs of aging, and improve skin tone. I use the phyto serum after any forms of intense exfoliation, peels, Etc because it helps to reduce redness and calm the skin. And I use the emollience moisturizer because it is perfect for my really dry skin. It's sinks in quickly and doesn't leave a greasy feel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Moisturizer Ever I purchased this product several months ago after purchasing and using the Retinol 1%. I did not use a moisturizer with the first use of Retinol and learned a good lesson. I am 69 and have pretty good skin with not to many problems, but in the past year have developed crows feet and lines around mouth area. That is what brought me to Skin Ceuticals. I could not have been more pleased with the Emollience for dry skin. After the redness, itching and flaking from the retinol i used the Emollience and it was wonderful. It was so soothing to my irrated skin. So now I use my SkinCeuticals Retinol once a week but, i also apply the Emollience on top and every night thereafter, and my face looks so good.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Long Time Fan I've used Emollience for years. It was recommended by my hospital's dermatology department and I loved it immediately. I used to buy it at the hospital but when they were out a few months ago I went online to buy two jars. I was distressed to see that the first jar I opened had a completely different texture than the lotion I'd come to love. It is a thick cream, like cold cream. I haven't opened the second jar. Has the formula been changed? If so, I don't like it. If not, was there something wrong with this jar?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from No more tight skin! I purchased this a few weeks ago along with a number of Skinceuticals products. I'm not sure which product, or if the combination of products, gave me results, but I have seen results in a short amount of time. My face was uncomfortably dry and tight. Since using this product, my skin feels healthy and looks dewy. Emollience has a thick texture that keeps my skin hydrated all day, which is something I've struggled with in the past. With other products, I'd put it on and my face would be tight again in a minute, but not with Emolloience. I also have extremely sensitive skin and will get rashes and hives to certain ingredients, but have had no reaction to Skinceuticals products! I just wish it had texture and scent more like Triple Lipid, which is heavenly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from heaven bottled i usually do not take the time to log on, sign in and review a product.... THIS PRODUCT IS AMAZING! my teen daughter, my 50+ yr old self and dad use this product. it is so moisturizing. it soaks into the skin, does not clog pores or 'sit' on top of skin. our family has very sensitive skin, acne prone skin and this stuff works on everyone! works on dry skin, dehydrated skin, over processed skin. a skin ceuticals product that i can tell works on our skin! if you need a moisturizer, get this one. it works. we have been using it for over 10 yrs now!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic, goodbye high price soft cream! I was a previous devotee to a very expensive "Soft Cream" without using the brand name. Used it for YEARS and I tried other expensive creams but could never be converted. My esthetician convinced me to give this moisturizer a try and it's fantastic. Leaves my skin hydrated, it's absorbed easily, no breakouts and no sensitivities. I'm 42 years-old and with rosacea so a product that is easy on the skin is a must for me. Great product and I'm thrilled to have a few extra bucks in my bank account.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Excited! I bought this for my mother who has very dry, sensitive skin. For years both she and I have purchased moisturizer after moisturizer and none of them worked at all for her. We went through every medical grade, highly priced moisturizers you can imagine and eliminated them one by one. I finally bought the Emollience as I’m beginning to switch completely over to SkinCeuticals (we both have used C&E Freulic for years) because I’m finding that some of the products now produce better results for our skin types than any other medical grade formulations. The Emollience worked and she is so happy! And so am I! Thank you so much, SkinCeuticals, for advancing the science behind your products!
