Firstly I should say for several years I have loved Skinceuticals. I use about 5 of their products on a regular basis and have had excellent results.
So when I purchased Emollience I did not think I would be disappointed. Wrong! I purchased it because I did not have the time to go to Clinque to purchase their creme/gel Moisture Surge that I normally use and was already at my PS's office.
Emollience in my opinion is not as smooth, and is highly pore clogging.
I have been dealt a major break out for the last 10 days. I have had huge pimples on my chin and my the top of my nose is loaded with black heads. My skin looks excessively shiney and clogged. A yucky combo. Maybe I should never have tried this product, but I do suffer from dry skin.
This product actually set me back in terms of beautifying my skin. It is going to take me a couple weeks for my skin to recover and I need a facial as well.
However I will still continue to use the clay mask, B5 Serum, CF, exfolliating cleanser, and sun block. Although this Emollience, never again!

I love this moisturizer. It is rich and creamy but doesn't leave my combination skin greasy or shiny. It has a very light herbal scent that is lovely when applying. I use this at night over the Retexturizing Activator and the two products have worked wonders for my aging and sensitive skin.

Made skin feel like it had a film over it, did not moisturize. The daily cream for oily to combo skin was better even though I have dry skin.

Based on reviews this was supposed to be very moisturizing and good but its very gentle and does not leave the skin soft for more than 10 minutes max.

Most moisturisers do not work for my dry and sensitive skin. They turn the redness on my cheeks almost to burgundy in few seconds. But this was not that case. I felt immediately the cooling and moisturising effect. This might depend on Phloretin CF which I applied underneath. Anyway and anyhow, these two are my ideal products from now on.

I have a very oily t zone but large dry patches on the cheeks, chin and forehead. I've used heavy overnight creams from clinique/oil of olay and they always come back. This is something I've come to accept come the winter months. I was hesistant to try since it said "emollience" and I swear it would make my face super greasy, but alas it soaks up quickly and for the first time in years I've gotten rid of my dry patches. I do avoid my undereye area and use a separate one specifically for eyes. With this underneath, I get the most flawless foundation application and can finally use my MUFE Mat Velvet Plus!

A friend of mine gave this to me since I have combination skin (mostly normal, oily nose, dry patches especially in the winter and the occasional break out)
When I use this, I can just FEEL the moisture just seeping into the areas where my skin is dry. I usually avoid my oily area because it does seem a little too thick for those areas (feels like I would clog the pores and infest an outbreak of pimples)
The consistency is a bit liquid-y but once you rub it in, you can't really tell the difference.
Feels good on the back of dry hands too.
It feels too heavy to use everyday so I've yet to do that but probably will when winter comes

This moisturizer is a cream base. The packaging is okay... same thing as most of them out there in a clearish jar. What I liked about this moisturizer is that it healed my dry patches on my face. When I was using MAC Studio Moisture Fix SPF 15... it really dried up my face and made it felt rough. When my mom noticed it, she told me to switch to this moisturizer. I've been using it for less than four days and it's working great so far. My skin is now back to its normal self... really smooth without any dry patches or any sign of dryness. The softness seems to last all day. This moisturizer feels a little bit thick but that's why you don't need to use so much at once. If you want a moisturizer that does what it's supposed to then go for it.

This cream is a pretty average cream, I don't love it and I don't hate it. I have normal to dry skin and I can only use this cream daytime. At night I need something heavier. It sinks in fast and leaves the skin soft and matte. I do hate the package though - a heavy, glass jar that cost me extra shipping fee from US Ebay. It's a disaster! How can they even come up with such a non practical package. You have to dip your finger in it everytime and it weights a ton! Will not buy it again even though it's not a bad cream,

I do like this product however it seems to oxidize quickly and when I use it during the day, I seem to get small dry patches. However when used at night it seems to be the perfect moisturizer and it seems to take some of the redness in my face away. I will re-purchase but it is best used as a night moisturizer in my opinion.
While some people don't like the smell, I think its delightful!

I LOVE Skincueticals. It has done a lot for my 41-year-old skin. However, this didn't do much for me--like someone else said, you put it on and it just disappears--and my skin didn't feel or look much different than before I put it on! It definately didn't feel "emollient!" I used to have really oily skin, so maybe I would have like this more in my 20s, but now I want something that is REALLY, REALLY emollient, as in "dewy"!

I've raved elsewhere at greater length on the Skinceuticals range, so I'll keep in brief-ish here. Emollience is a good, rich moisturiser that does the job of hydrating dry skin; it's probably not the best I've ever used, but for the money, it's a good cream that does what it says on the tin! Plus, like a lot of the Skinceuticals products, the ingredient list is encouragingly botanical-heavy.

A moisturizer that at first seems rich and comforting to dry skin and then poof, it's mostly gone. Sometimes it also seemed to leave a slight residue on my skin. To me this was at best, nothing special and at worst, slightly drying. I'm using what remains in my jar on my arms and legs and won't buy again.

I'm 55 and have lived in Colorado for the past three years. Since moving here I've battled dry, flaky skin. After using Emollience my skin has improved significantly. Every once in awhile it will get flaky but I do use Retin-A and we deal w/occasional windy conditions, so perhaps these are contributing factors. Overall, I'm very pleased and will continue to use it.

As a faithful user of all things Skinceutical, in the midst of a cold, dry-skin winter month, I purchased my first jar of Emollience. Previously, I've used Daily Moisture--and with wonderful results.
My first sniff of Emollience, sadly, occured post-purchase in my bathroom. I mean the following in the nicest way possible: This creme smells like the inside of an old lady's handbag. Each time I open it, I cringe a little, and then wearily lather some on. My skin is normal to dry and nearly always clear. Since using Emollience, I have had more breakouts than ever before. This must be due to the thickness of the creme, although it's indicated on the jar for normal as well as dry complexions. Though I can enthusiastically recommend everything else I've tried in this line--B5 gel, Serum 20, Daily Moisture, I say leave this product on the shelf!

I got a good sized sample when I bought the B5 gel and this works great with the gel. I've been using it for 2 weeks now. It might seem little rich when you first apply it but your skin absorbs it quickly. Just make sure you massage it gently on your skin until it's absorbed. I think it will be too rich in the Summer unless you have a very dry or mature skin but it's great for Fall and Winter. Great stuff.

This is a really nice light weight moisturizer, probably best for normal/combo skin. Really nice scent that includes lavendar & other herbs. I can't say this moisturizer really stands out in a crowd, but it's nice.

Bought it from my derm, won't go back to anything else but this stuff. It's TERRIFIC!!!

This is one of the best moisturizers I have ever tried. Chock-full of high-quality ingredients including grapeseed extract. I have normal/combo skin and always use a drop of this either alone or with my nighttime moisturizer to add a boost of hydration. Great year round, and the only moisturizer where a pea-sized amount is actually enough.
