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 5 out of 5 by from This is the best ever moistures my face and my face feels like a baby button but it’s oily and can get a pimple or two but don’t stop cause it works

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 I have really sensitive skin, so finding products that don't make me break out is difficult. SkinCeuticals is one of the few brands I can use with confidence that it won't irritate my skin. This moisturizer is one of my must have products in my daily routine. It is pricey, but worth it.

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 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.

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

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 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I have been using this moisturizer for 6 or so years since I started working in the spa industry. There is nothing like it. I have very dry skin (especially in the winter) and this does the trick. I would recommend this product to anyone looking for an unbelievable moisturizer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Emollience is my favorite moisturizer Have tried many quality brands over years, and I find Emollience to be my choice due to its ingredients, ability to hold moisture in skin without a greasy or heavy feel. Have tried several European organic fruit creams but found it too watery and diminished too quickly after application, skin didn't feel moisturized for the duration after its application. Went back to Emollience- a little goes a long way and keeps skin feeling great even for combo zone skin over a long period of time. Not too heavy, smells very nice, a quality product that works for the duration with a tiny amount of cream. Daily Moisturizer is lighter, but Emollience is even better on my combo skin when used sparingly. A little goes a long way and is a good quality value!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for oily skin the the desert I live in the high desert and I have oily skin that can easily be get congested. This product is easily absorbed without feeling at all greasy. I layer it under Ultimate UV Defense and my feels hydrated and protected without getting too shiny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it I love this moisturizer - I am on my second jar. It has a nice, smooth texture that is non-greasy and non-sticky. It totally absorbs into the skin. When my skin is extra dry in the winter, I also use the Hydrating B5 Gel for some extra moisture. I use this cream in the morning and then use the Renew Overnight Dry at night. It's been a great combination for me. I have been using Skinceuticals about 6 months now and love all of my products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect I've used this product for many years. It is perfect in every way. A little goes a long way. Perfect for all skin types I think. Not heavy but does the job!
