PERFECT FOR: Immediate hydration with lasting results

”Absolutely loving this for my oily, acne-prone, yet very dehydrated skin. So light, yet so efficient, especially on my dry patches. It doesn’t pill/gather on my face, but as far as I know, that’s an issue when combining products with different bases. I don’t believe it’s an inherent issue with this product.”

Simple and effective moisturizer

I have been using the natural moisturizing factors for almost 6 months now. I like it because it's straight up, no frills and no additional ingredients that don't even make a difference. It does it's job and I'm sure a lot of skin types will appreciate the formula. In my words I would say it's quite light and it feels very refreshing on the skin idk how but it's a bit cooling (don't worry if you don't like that minty feeling because i hate it, even with toothpaste. this one feels great parang may ihip lang ng hangin). Just a tip, don't put this over sunburned skin or very red irritated areas.

Oily to oilier

I love The Ordinary, however this product didn’t work for me. I rarely use it now since every time I apply it to my face it just makes my skin even more oily. I have to use oil blot film two hours post application of this product which is too inconvenient for me who doesn’t really apply make up on. I guess this is the only product from The Ordinary that I will not repurchase.

Wanted to love it but gave me pimples.

I really REALLY wanted to love this product, the price is great and the brand has such a strong following for no nonsense skincare but it gives me pimples/caused breakout. When I began using this I revamped my entire beauty regime after several weeks of research to be sure I was targetting all of my skincare concerns. I am 43, have normal skin with pigmentation and some expression mark wrinkles. I choose a combination of products to lighten sun damaged skin by COSRX, Dear Klairs & The Ordinary (such as their Niacinamide 10% + zinc 1%), using certain products in the morning (such as Klairs Vit C), some in the evening. I dove right in with the whole regime from day one. Immediately, I woke up with one pimple, then next day was two more, then 3rd day another one, it was as if for every night I would use everything a new pimple would emerge. At first I thought was what some call "purging" but then I would go back to my old sckincare (all of it) for 3 days and skin would clear up. Then I tried again, same thing would happen. I tried this for about 10 days then decided to try and see if it was one of the products causing the reaction. Over the course of 2 weeks I began to do a process of isolation and elimination to see which product was causing the pimples which literally appeared overnight each time. Towards the end of the 2 weeks the only product I had not used in my routine and had kept away for the whole 2 week (pimple free) period was The Ordinary Natural Moisturising Factors. I finally included it only ONCE a day, at night to see, first night, next morning all ok. 2nd night, next morning one giant cyst like pimple. I am not prone to breakouts. (I get a pimple every 6 months maybe.) So, I am certain that it was this moisturiser, despite the fact that I put on the tiniest amount. So now I am going to look for another moisturiser as a sealing product to use at the end of my routine.

Outstanding Moisturizer!

I bought this product during May because my skin was dry during summer and once I received it, I immediately tried it after I took bath. Surprisingly it did really good on my skin two weeks after I bought it. My dark spots and fungal acne lessened and it also smoothened by skin. I must say I'm really impressed by the formula of this product because even though I'm sleep deprived and stressed with life it still does help my skin to improve and it makes me feel better by not putting too much makeup everyday.

Works well with others

It's a great moisturizer but would sometimes feel a tad bit too thick for my oily skin. Didn't like it at first until I found the right way to apply it; squeeze a pea size amount on my fingers and rub the pads together to warm and melt the product then pat pat pat it on the face. I don't use it often because again, oily face here, but I've since bought their 100ml tube before the small one ran out. It's no HG but it works well with the rest of my skincare products.

Not for me!

I have high hopes for this product because it works to most people I know who have been using this. First time I used it my face became dry after 2 hours, I thought maybe I did not put enough product. One week of using it I noticed my face became drier and some areas became scaly. I gave it another week and it just made my whole face became dry, shiny and scaly. Just not the product for me. Sad to say we're not compatible.
