I don't think there's much to say about this product. It's quite a thick cream and very moisturizing that doesn't contain any spectacular ingredients. It is great for dry and flaky skin, yet didn't clog my pores and didn't cause any breakouts. I would definitely repurchase.

This cream is great, it's inexpensive and doesn't irritate my extremely sensitive skin. It moisturises amazingly and I can't really think of any faults to it other than if you have oily skin, I don't know if I'd recommend it being it's more targeted towards people with dry skin so it may not work for you. It's really inexpensive as well and works just as good as some of my more expensive face creams, as a matter of fact, this has been a favourite of mine for quite a long time now.

This cream is AMAZING! Without this cream my life would be so miserable. I have the most sensitive skin known to man kind, I have eczema here and there and it reacts to almost everything. I have tried a ridiculous number of creams which have all reacted to my skin. Most face creams I cannot use consistently especially if my skin takes a turn for the worst (which is the whole point of wanting to use a moisturiser) as they react immediately leaving me with thriving red, sore, itchy and eventually flakey and patchy skin. Last winter I was almost in tears because nothing would work on my skin, I developed patches on my face which were spreading from my eyelids to my cheeks and as much as I resisted I had to turn to using steroid ointments again. This saddened me deeply because I am young and for up to 20 years of my life i had been using steroid ointments to control eczema and as you know the negative effects of such products such as skin thinning (leading to early wrinkles) is something no person wants (especially not whilst young). Well the steroid ointments were not as effective and took longer then I wanted to have any effect on my face.
As someone who likes to explore with make up I was being forced to give up on makeup which wasn't something I wanted but putting makeup on to my damaged skin caused very stressful and irritating skin problems.
I somehow came across a review, a blog about this Oilatum cream and how it was a life savior. I did some research and read how it cleared up red patches and flakey skin. I was fortunate enough to find this at my local boots. The first time I applied this I was amazed at the texture...it wasn't greasy, it was thick but in a light way and it did not feel heavy on me. I was amazed at how long the moisture lasted ... it was as if half of the layer sank in to my skin and the other half created a moisturising film on my skin. After two days use my redness had gone, there were no signs of patchy itchy skin. And most importantly it did not react with my skin, there was no burning or stinging. My eczema had gone from my eyelids, my cheeks and face!
I was so grateful to have found this product. I've tried it underneath make up and it is a must have for me. I cannot wear makeup without this product because not only does it help smooth out my make up but it provides this great moisturising film so that the makeup doesn't come in to much contact with my skin...this prevents my skin from reacting to the harsh chemical in makeup (lets face it makeup isn't exactly healthy for our skin) and better yet my skin is moisturised. Other moisturisers i've tried using this way have reacted with my makeup and then with my skin, irritating my skin deeply.
I do wish the cream came in a 100ml tub but it is a reasonable price compared to other creams which don't do much for me. I would highly recommend.

I find this just OK. It is too heavy for me for day wear (looks shiny) and yet after a night time application I can still wake up with dry patches on my cheeks which is a bit disappointing.
Results wise it is comparable to Nivea Soft for me and twice the price.
On the plus side it rates well on cosDNA for no acne causing/irritating ingredients.

My all time favourite moisturiser!!! I LOVE IT! Have brought countless bottles and will continue to do so keeps my dry skin very hydrated! Only down side is that it doesn't last as long as I would like it to and some times i buy 2 bottles as for some reason (maybe because its so popular) its not always in stock in boots or superdrugs, just so I don't run out! :D

Why have I never found this before? Within three days of using it, the dry patch on my cheek is finally clearing up and is almost gone. I have dry, dehydrated and sensitive skin and it's still recovering from the winter. Trying new moisturisers is aways a bit of a risk for me, but as this is so cheap it was no problem. It feels good under make up (LM TM) and my skin feels hydrated and so much better. Please and thank you.

Light enough to wear under makeup, but still heavy enough to sort out dry skin, reasonable price, does the job

I finally bought this after reading a fair amount of reviews. My skin is dry and flaky at the moment and when I apply foundation I look like a cake. It's been really upsetting me and I have spent a small fortune on many moisturisers in hope of finding something that will balance my skin. I have been using this for about a week now and the difference is un believable. Not only has it started to hydrate my skin again it leaves me with a glow/dewy appearance and it has also helped with my eye lid eczema AND horrible acne spotty face be put to rest. It is super affordable and the the effects are very desirable. I sometimes use it before I got to bed and I use it before I start my make up, it doesn't feel heavy on my face like some others have commented but I put that down to different skin types.

Love this cream so SO much! It has literally become a saviour for my horrible dry, sensitive skin. I used to get small patches of eczema on my eyelids but since using this at night when finishing up my skin for the day it has completely gone. Its a really thick cream, free from fragrances and containing only natural ingredients so it is perfect if you are a sensitive/dry skin sufferer. My skin feels softer, looks healthier and I have literally not had a single blemish since using this at night. I know you can apply it under your make up, it does say on the tube that you can, but I feel its slightly too heavy for me for day use. My rule of thumb is to use something light yet hydrating during the day, then something thick, protecting and anti aging during the night. I usually put and anti age serum on then put the oilatum on top. Overall, this stuff is brilliant for people with problematic skin, definitely recommended and I do purchase this regularly.

Have to agree with a lot of posts. This moisturiser is fantastic if you have sensitive skin. I use it both day and night (although you cant put too much on under makeup as it is quite thick) At night I put on facial oil (clarins or balance me) first and then the Oilatum on top.
The only (very minor) drawback is that it can be tricky to get all of the product out of the tube - but I simply cut the tube and get the dregs out of it.
