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 5 out of 5 by from I CANNOT live without this moisturizer. It’s a bit on the more expensive side, but it is AMAZING. Thick and melts into skin without feeling heavy. Once I switched to this moisturizer I knew I wouldnt use anything else. It hydrates my skin fully, even after retinol that I never peel. Great product from a trusted brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from When my skin is feeling extra dry I like to get some of this (a little goes a long way for me) and put this all over my face before I go to bed. It keeps my skin from drying out when I’m sleeping and I wake up with soft supple skin. This stuff is magic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is amazing for dry or combo skin I have combo skin and which tends to lean on the dryer side in the colder months and was using daily moisture, which was fine, but my skin was still feeling a little dry. My esthetician recommended this product and I have been using it ever since for almost two years now. I am absolutely obsessed and cannot live without it. I tend to switch out a lot of my skincare products because I like trying new things but this is one product that I have continued to purchase Over and over again and will never go without. If you are on the fence about purchasing, do it. It is absolutely worth the price, it out performs any other moisturizer I have tried for my sensitive combo skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for dryer skin types! If you are dryer you can use this twice a day. When you’re oilier like me I e-commerce only using at night. This cream is thick but does not make you feel greasy or heavy! You will wake up with super supple, hydrated skin!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just used this for the first time last week and WOW! This is the first pharmaceutical grade moisturizer I have purchased. I put in on last night and woke up this morning and my skin has never felt softer. Seriously, I use La Mer even though this isn’t as thick, I feel like it did a better job of penetrating my skin. Obsessed and can’t wait to see results after a few weeks!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love the ingredients it’s great for dryer skin types. And helps add a ton of oils back into your skin without it being greasy. It’s a very affordable moisturizer(compared to skinceuticals as a whole).

Rated 1 out of 5 by from MAKES SKIN OILY Hated this lotion. Made skin way too oily all day long.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love! I love this moisturizer. I have oily skin and I still love it. Sometimes my skin can dry out with my cleanser or with my retinol but typically my skin runs more oily and I feel like this moisturizer doesn't make my skin more oily. It feels beautiful on my skin and almost calming. I also love how my makeup looks over it - very smooth and fresh. I have tried the Daily Moisturizer as well, which is nice, but still not as nice as this Emollience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saves my sensitive skin!! I have a combo of oily and dry sensitive skin; add to that severe dry air during the winter in Philly and dry air from the wood burning stove as my primary heat. This has saved my skin. A little goes a long way; I use it every night and morning. Won't go without it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I needed I was using the Daily Moisturizer and that was doing okay, but I felt like my skin was still dry, especially as we moved into cooler weather. I decided to try this moisturizer and it was exactly what my skin needed as I moved into winter in California.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for dry skin! I have started menopause way earlier (37) and my skin dried like I had never seen and in a very short period. This has been the only face cream that has helped me see a difference.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new favorite moisturizer! Finally, a moisturizer that has no silicones (especially dimethicone) and ingredients that don’t irritate my face! I’m in love!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have combination skin: dehydrated, but oily in the T-zone. This moisturizer is lightweight, but does a great job moisturizing without leaving skin feeling greasy. A little goes a long way, and it can be used tear-round.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I’m actually using their normal moisturizer not listed :/ anyways I love it. I use it often as a night cream and my face won’t get overly oily or break out. It has lots of good things for your skin.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too thick and pasty I agree with the review of Amanda. This cream is very thick and does not absorb into my skin. It just sat on my face like a thick paste. I bought it to use at night with the BE Reversatol. I have returned this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The woman who does my facials suggested I try this for my dehydrated skin. It has been a stressful time for me and I could use something to bring a luminous glow back to my skin. PROS: Blend of lipids + marine extracts help dryness. Good for daily use. Lightweight and absorbs very quickly. Nourishes and hydrates. Restores & maintains skin levels. Sulfate & alcohol free. CONS: May not be strong enough for very dry skin. Has parabens (I’m trying to avoid these) Several fungal acne triggers. Though I am acne prone, this did not clog my pores or cause me to breakout.

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 Obsessed with this moisturizer. Skinceuticals is the best skin care program around. It has brought so much life to my skin after I thought it was doomed when I got aggressive acne at twenty-five years old.

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!
Date published: 2019-04-19
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 I love love love this moisturizer. I have combination skin and I use this morning and night. My skin feel hydrated. Never dry and never oily. Its thick and a little goes a long way. I have sensitive skin and I have no uses with this brand. Its a little pricey but worth it!
