Physician Insight

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 3 out of 5 by from Creamy but heavy Started using this a month ago. I hade sensitive skin and I’ve battled with eczema on my face so thought I needed this moisturizer but it was definitely too thick for me and when I put makeup on top it felt cakey and I only wear blush. Can’t wear foundation due to eczema.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Creamy and rich I need a heavy moisturizer all year around this gives me the moisture I need but is also great under makeup. I also see a huge difference in my skin the second i apply it to my face!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like it This was my first upgrade from using a “department store” moisturizer and I’m very pleased with it. It moisturizes well, I like how it feels and smells, and I like knowing that I’m putting a quality product on my face.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great moisturizer! I have tried several moisturizers and this is by far the best I have ever used. Love it!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth and goes a long way This moisturizer is the only moisturizer I need. I'm a 37 y.o. guy who started taking care of my skin only a few years ago. I tried several moisturizers to join my skincare regimen but they always had some issue: too oily, too sticky, gave me allergies or made my skin itchy. Not emollience! It is just perfect. And just a little goes a long way.

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 Great product! I love this lotion. It goes on so smooth and you can tell a difference within a few days of consecutive use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lightweight and hydrating This is great for the hotter summer months as it is not too heavy. Sometimes I do want that deep, heavy moisturizer so I will use another brands. Overall very happy with this- and an added bonus is that it’s not overly fragrant. I am not a fan of heavily scented products. This doesn’t have that perfume smell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Luxury in a Jar! Emollience is pure luxury in a jar. A moisturizer provides the finishing touch and this one leaves my combination skin feeling amazing. Hydrated and smooth. Not greasy in the least. I use this every morning, followed by Skinceuticals sunscreen and some light make-up. My make-up never melts, it looks great all day!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I can’t say enough good things about this product! After years of trying so many different moisturizers, regimens I finally found one that makes my face feel smooth, brighter, tighter, and healthy! I went from using a 6 step (never again) regimen that didn’t do an ounce of what emollience does!!! If you want to try something to start with skinceuticals this is for you!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes a difference! I have been using Emollience for three years and apply it daily. I have a history of dry skin and MOHS surgery on face. When I apply Emollience I notice skin is smoother and texture feels hydrated. The smell is refreshing and clean! Excellent moisturizer for me and I recommend it highly!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is my favorite moisturizer for my normal to dry skin! I love the ingredients Emollience has compared to some other SC moisturizers and although it's the perfect amount of hydration for me it doesn't leave me feeling greasy either. The price point is not bad and it has a nice clean scent to it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I use this during the winter as my skin gets VERY dry typically but ever since Ive used this my skin has been hydrated and healthy throughout the cold months! Highly recommend.

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 Love this moisturizer! Perfect for daytime and nighttime! Very hydrating and nourishing. I also love the scent

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I hate to give this 3 stars. It's not a bad product AT ALL. it just didn't work FOR ME. I bought this in the winter when I mistakenly thought my skin was dry and not dehydrated. This moisturizer is just a little too emollient for me because i am prone to blackheads and breakouts. If you have true dry skin, this product would be great for you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Its pretty light. It doesnt get too heavy but still hydrated that I can wear it with makeup and not get foundation build up

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Skinceuticals is one of my favorite skincare lines and this product goes to show why this brand is so incredible. This moisturizer sinks right into your skin making it feel soft and silky. Unlike other moisturizers I've used on my skin, one application of Emollience makes my face feel moisturized and soft. This is a great product for day or night.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product! I do love this brand and I use a lot of their product. I love using this moisturizer in the summer fall months when my skin gets dry. It helps replenish moisture. Is it pricey but I think it's worth it if you have dry skin.
Date published: 2019-02-26
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Since my skin leans more on the combo side, I use this heavier cream at night for a deeper moisturization. I wouldn't recommend this for someone who has oily skin or to be used under makeup. If you're looking for a great moisturizer for under makeup I would try the Daily Moisture by SkinCeuticals. This is a great cream to use at night!

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 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 5 out of 5 by from Relief for sensitive skin types I was introduced to this product at my Dr.'s office. It was applied after treatments for sun damage. It calmed my sensitive skin and reduced the redness, I have been using it for the last 18 years. A little goes along way! It's absorbed right into the skin and keeps it hydrated all day. I use it after cleansing in the morning along with the b5 hydrating gel during the winter. If you experience dry itchy skin prone to redness from the harsh chemicals found in department stores, I found this to be the most effective moisturizer. Tried and true!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the product but want different packaging I love this product. I have really dehydrated sensitive skin and this was recommended to me by my esthetician. It's one of the only heavier moisturizers that doesn't clog my pores and actually helps with my dry skin. I also love the ingredients list! My only issue is the the packaging. I would prefer a pump so I don't have to open and reach into the jar every day, but at least put a spatula in so I don't have to use my fingers!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very High-Quality Moisturizer My esthetician suggested I start using Skinceuticals products about 4 years ago and I haven't been disappointed at all. This moisturizer works beautifully on my skin -- it doesn't sink in and disappear, or sit on the surface like a residue. In combination with my Skinceuticals cleanser and toner the moisturizer works synergistically so that my skin's appearance is glowing and looks healthy. I love all the products and wish I could afford to try more of them.

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 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 EMOLLIENCE WORKS FOR ME I had little faith that any product would work for my dry skin. EMOLLIENCE made my skin feel so soft and moist first time I tried it and it just keeps getting better. I use it along with Utimate UV Defense Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30, another wonderful skin product! My faith restored!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect I live in a desert, and have very dry skin. This product is perfect. It gives me the moisture that I need, but isn't heavy. Lightweight, but gives the moisture of a heavy cream, without being heavy. Absorbs well
