I never leave the house without applying this!

I am literally saddened whenever my tube of this is running low! As someone with combination skin, this moisturizer gives me the perfect softness without leaving me too oily. It's the perfect end to my VMV face care routine (cleanser, toner then moisturizer)! Would definitely recommend anyone to try it out, you won't regret it!

Heaven on my skin

I have been using the Armada skin and light screen for over a year now and since then I have had less break outs and irritation. I decided to buy the moisturizer since I don't have one except my tinted cream. I must say it perps the skin excellently for make-up even without a primer and I love how light it is on the skin. It complements my Armada skin and light screen and will definitely try other VMV products soon!

Moisturize Before Makeup

I was very skeptic about using this product in replacement with the "Spring Fresh Oil-Free Nourisher for Oily Skin" because it was sold out at the time. But just like the latter, this is a great product for oily skin because I really, really, really have oily skin. This does the trick!

Love this!

I always have an oily face especially when I wake up in morning. Because of that, I have never used a moisturizer before going to bed. I always thought I don't need it or when I try there will always be a new member of the pimple family :( But when I've decided to buy V&M's CPC+G oil to lighten my acne marks (I've read in some reviews that the oil works well if mixed with a moisturizer and the like compared to using it alone), I chose to try this product because of it's good reviews. And I must say, after 5 days of using it, that I really love this moisturizer :) it gets absorbed by my skin easily, and it is also lightweight. My skin doesn't look as tired as before. My face seems brighter and softer :) Believe me or not but I'm less oily when I wake up (I'm also using Id monolaurin gel before applying moisturizer), and I haven't got a bad reaction from using this. No pimples spawning! :) it is quite pricey but you don't have to use too much for face and neck so I think it will last for months. Will definitely repurchase once I've used up the contents of my tube :)

Skin care staple. Does what it says!

I've been using this product for about 3 years and I love that it's hypoallergenic without those endocrine disruptors, and that it's made locally! My face is mostly dry with some combination areas esp in the T zone, but it really does provide smart hydration! A bottle lasts about 9-10 months for me since I mainly use it for my face as part of my morning ritual, but it's a great travel companion because you can use it all over! During the colder months, I tend to have drier skin on the lower third of my face surrounding the mouth and I find that I need to add a heavier moisturiser on these parts, but overall it's a great product and a skin care staple for me!

Great moisturizer for combi/oily skin

I used the VMV 3-step skin care for combination skin and this was the moisturizer that came with it. This was a pleasant discovery. A little goes a long way, it moisturizes without the cloying feeling, and it didn't irritate my sensitive skin. Great even for use during the day, even during the summer.

Love it!

Although this is the first tine I ordered this product fron Beautymnl, I have been using it already for a few months. I love the fact that this product is free from harmful chemicals, and that it is unscented. It is so nice to know that a product as basic as this can really live up to expectations. My skin is now very smooth and I dont really need to use powder that much anymore because it helped control the production of oil on my T zone. I cannot really say anything bad about this product, except for the fact that is more expensive than the local organic moisturized that I used to buy. Nevertheless, it's worth it!

My first pleasant experience with a moisturiser

This is wonderful! My combination skin leans more towards the oily side, so I've always been iffy about moisturisers. They always made my skin look like an oil slick just two hours after applying. Not this moisturiser! My skin LOVES it! It's light enough that I don't end up overly-oily, but moisturising enough that my face feels supple and, well, happy! And you don't need a lot; I find that a pea-sized amount is enough for my whole face (great value for money!). I must admit that I only apply a very, very thin layer of this on my nose area (the very area that most nose pore strips go on), or some days none at all since it's the part of my face that is oiliest. Overall, I am extremely happy with this product and will definitely repurchase! I don't like taking chances with moisturisers so I'm quite sure this is will be my go-to product for a good while.

Excellent Skin Investment

I decided to give this variant of VMV moisturizer a shot due to the praises it garnered over the internet and I'm just so happy that just after my first application, I felt that my money was put into such good use! This moisturizer gives my face the right amount of moisture it needs, it does not cause break outs (which is a plus for me, given that I have an acne-prone skin), it's light and easily absorbent and does not feel sticky at all. I also appreciate how its consistency is just right -- a little amount of this can already cover the entire face and neck.

My go-to Moisturizer

I've been using this moisturizing everyday for years now, and I don't have any complaints. It always keeps my skin at the right amount of hydrated, moisturizing my skin well without leaving it sticky or oily. I also use it before putting on makeup and it helps control dry spots.

Great for Combi faces.

I searched for this moisturizer because I was having issues with my combination skin. I must say, it really works and balances out the moisture on my face. Plus, there's no sticky feeling which I really dislike, and it's absorbed easily. No funky or strong smell as well. I can use it either day or night (though I use it both times). It also works well with my serum, and during the day it has a semi-matte dewy finish especially when topped with my sunblock. Overall, great product.

The moisturizer I've been needing, all this time.

This moisturizer is a godsend. I applied it at night before putting on my routine almond face mask and my skin felt amazing when I took it off—neither dry nor too oily, and that balanced hydration almost made me, the acne-prone-eczemic-skin-type, cry happy tears. It left the sort of feeling I've been aching to feel on skin since it turned ultra-sensitive. I highly recommend it!

Leaves my skin hydrated and moisturized

I have been using VMV Hypoallergenics Hydra Balance Smart Moisturizer for Combination Skin for a month now. I love that a little goes a really long way. It leaves my skin hydrated and moisturized through out the day. It is perfect for our ever changing weather - hot sunny in the morning and heavy down pour during the afternoon.

HG moisturizer for my oily combination skin

The thing I like most about this moisturizer is what it claims to do - "regulating moisture levels in dry-to-oily skin types." It regulates oil production, not prevent it completely. I find that products that strip away the oils completely for a short period of time irritate my skin and even contribute to greater oil production later on. This one balances the oil level, not too greasy but not dry either. In short, it promotes healthy skin :)

Awesome gentle moisturiser for combination skin

Whenever I use VMV products, I am always struck by how gentle they feel on my skin. I really do believe they do away with all kinds of allergens and triggering chemicals. For my combination, sometimes sensitive skin, this moisturiser is great for day-time use. It is light, scentless, and moisturises sufficiently. I prefer to use richer formulas at night, but during the day this is enough for me. The only con I can think of is that it's pretty easy to finish, and it's not exactly cheap.

Great moisturizer!

I have dry to combination skin and this works really well for me. It leaves my skin looking fresh and hydrated without feeling too greasy. I haven't had any problems using this under my makeup. The only downside is that I'm not sure if it has SPF. According to their site, it has SPF but on the product itself there's no indication whether it has SPF or not.

Will definitely but the full size

I bought the travel size of this (all Combination Skin) together with the moisturizer and toner, and it really gets rid of my acne, and pimple marks. I will definitely purchase this again, it's worth it for it's price. Will save for this instead of the cheap ones that aren't effective.

Smart indeed ;)

I have bought the entire Hydra Balance line and was really happy about the moisturizer. It is indeed perfect for combination skin as it smartly moisturizes the dry areas while ensuring that no further trouble is caused to the oilier areas such as the T-zone. One tube lasts for about 2-3 months depending on how often you apply. I usually just use it at night so it lasted for 3 months.
