Texture upon application almost turns to water and glides on nicely – it's a unique texture. I used this moisturiser at night without my usual hyaluronic acid, just to test the Honest beauty moisturiser out, and my face turned greasy in 1.5 hours. Singapore is in the monsoon season now at about 25 degree celsius at night, so it's an odd phenomenon.
I gave this a shot for 2 nights and my skin hated it. There are bumpy texture and enlarged pores after a couple of hours and 2 days in now, i have little sensitive bumps appearing all over my face except my nose and chin. Wished this work but it's not for me at all.
My skin is oily combination, and live in Singapore. I have been using this around 3months as night time moisturizer, and my skin always immediately feels moist and hydrated. Really happy! Going to buy my second jar.
Pros: Very unique experience - it feels at first like a cream, then like a gel, then dries down with the occlusiveness of a cream. Which you'll either love or find strange. It is technically fragrance free although the apple extract gives it a very pleasant smell (I suspect it's this rather than the antioxidant factor that makes it so high on the list but I will take fragrance free as a technicality when executed well and is non irritating) Seemed good for summer/fall months (not heavy enough for a harsh winter though)
Cons: The use of Hydrolyzed Sodium Hyaluronate - depending on the molecular weight of it can be a controversial ingredient due to studies that indicate it may cause inflammation when smaller than 50kDA. When I asked Honest Beauty what molecular weight they used they replied it was proprietary. I then asked if they could simply confirm if it was above or below 50kDA and they said they couldn't divulge that information. Because they market themselves on transparency I found this shady and off putting. For context EVERY other company I've ever asked that question to has been able to tell me both the exact weight they use, even when it was below 50kDA.
This is the BEST moisturizer I’ve ever used! I’ve been using it since September and I’m so happy I found it. Extremely moisturizing! My skin feels so soft and hydrated even in January in Canada! Plus it’s oil free and does not clog my pores at all. It literally feels like water bursting on my skin when I rub it in. So heavenly! I use it morning and night!
I always use Honest beauty products but this is by far the best face cream I have ever used. This product is so satisfying, it left my face feeling soft and dewy. If you have dry skin then I really recommend this.
