Product Review: Skinceuticals Emollience

A friend of mine got a facial in Boston and fell head over heels for a moisturizer from SkinCeuticals called Emollience ($50). Her rave reviews about how her skin looked even, supple and hydrated after just one month made me run faster than Forrest Gump to the store. So far I've been using it for two weeks and here are my thoughts:

Emollience has a thin, slip-like texture, but it delivers heavy moisture. It has a light and clean scent that feels refreshing on your face and makes your skin look dewy and smooth. Also, I love that it is reasonably priced for such a large jar. It lasts long too. All you really need is a pinky nail bed-sized dollop for your entire face and neck.

The texture aside, the results are really what make this such a solid purchase. I apply it in the morning and my face doesn't dry out even the slightest bit all day. It absorbs quickly so I can put my makeup on right away without any base or powder sliding off. I use a little bit extra in the evenings, along with an eye cream and when I wake up, my skin looks splotch-free and feels like buttah.

It's recommended for those with dry skin since it contains restorative oils (grapeseed, rose hip and macadamia), but my skin is combination and it seems to be responding well to the formula (meaning, it's not too oily, even around my t-zone). Is this the best face cream in the whole wide world? No, but it definitely ranks high, and I can confidently recommend it to anyone looking for a gentle cream that will give your thirsty complexion a tall drink of water.

Maybe once I start my "real job" I could afford this. It sounds amazing.

I have been using Skinceutical's "Daily Moisture" for 3 years now and have been very happy with it. It is a lightweight pore-minimizing moisturizer for normal to oily skin. I have also used their Phyto+ and serums. I ask for samples of their products when I buy from their authorized dealers -- great way to try them before splurging.

This sounds like something I could actually use for the winter being it is okay for combo skin.

That is so cheap for SkinCeuticals. Any special ingredients or antioxidants. There stuff usually contains the latests ingredients at great concentrations.

Sounds like I might have to try it! I also have combination (more on the dry side) skin, so this might work for me.
