Great moisturizer for when my skin is drier in the winter, not sure how it will hold up in summer. I have a very oily t-zone and am acne prone with dry cheeks that have become super dry this winter. I apply this in the morning before applying sunscreen and makeup and it's been great. Gets rid of my dry areas, doesn't make my oil much worse and leaves my skin feeling very soft with not a single breakout. This is much thicker than I am used to in a face cream so a little goes a long way for me, I love the pump packaging but half a pump will easily cover my face and neck and sometimes I accidentally dispense too much. The scent isn't my fav, very "earthy" but isn't a fake or strong scent so that's good. Will repurchase.
Edit - my skin suddenly got super dry and this wasnt helping. Not sure I would repurchase now, my skin doesn't seem to absorb it very well when it's flaking. Oddly the thin and weird textured Water Cloud cream from Peter Thomas Roth helped.

This moisturizer worked well with my oily combo, acne prone skin. It moisturized my dry cheeks without making my t zone super oily in the summer months. The smell didn't bother me, it reminds me of sunscreen. In fact the texture and smell are reminiscent of sunscreen facial products, which why I was really surprised that this did not have any sunscreen at all. For the price to not have sunscreen, this is a pass. If I need a regular day creme there are options at the drugstore. If this was provided free for me I'd use it again, but I won't repurchase.

I have just finished a bottle of this. I always love Ren package but their moisturizers don't stand out in my skin routine. This cream creates oil slick and sticky feeling; however, it can't provide enough hydration for my oily skin, even in summer. And this doesn't fully absorb, I feel like a part of it just sit there, leaving a film on my skin.

This is a fantastic everyday moisturizer for oily combo and acne prone skin.

Most moisturizers feel too greasy or too gel-like. This goes on smoothly without feeling sticky or leaving a film. I love the consistency and it works well to hydrate drier areas while not accentuating my oily t zone.

The downside to this moisturizer is that there is no built in SPF. That is a bummer to me because I hate adding an extra step, but it is worth it because I love this moisturizer so much.

I got a really nice sized tube of this as a points perk with the latest Sephora purchase (though mine is called "Evercalm", not "Hydracalm"). I have a serious pet peeve with day products that make claims about "global protection" or "environmental protection" when they don't contain ANY sun screen. One of the most important and easiest "global" concerns to protect ourselves from is the damage the sun can do to our skins. So to make a daytime moisturizer that gives this false sense of "protection" without offering anything just makes me SO angry. Call it a "daytime moisturizer" but spare us all the borderline lies about "global protection". Now, this is a perfectly okay moisturizer (provided I top it with sunscreen or a foundation product containing sunscreen) but it's $56 in Canada and for that type of money, it's really not special. I'd rather shell out a few more bucks for Clinique SuperDefense and get something that moisturizes better and at least contains SPF20!

I find it interesting that so many people have mentioned the fragrance. That doesn't bother me - I'm lucky that way. But it strikes me as ironic that while so many are bothered by scent in skin products, a whole bunch of women are doing a "happy dance" about the smells that Too Faced is adding to their EYESHADOW palettes. Too Faced seems to be doing this with alarmingly increasing frequency...they started with the Chocolate Bar Palette and now they've got the Peanut Butter and Jelly one and all this Sweet Peach stuff. The one place fragrance really doesn't belong is in our EYE MAKEUP.

This product has too much fragrance in it for me to use it more than once. I know they describe the fragrance as being natural, but arsenic is natural and no one would put that on their face by choice. There are many chemicals that are proven to work and are safer than the so called natural ingredients they use.

The biggest MEH cream I've purchased in a long time.

Texture is nice, absorbs nicely, gives some hydration.

Packaging is great, no risk of oxidizing/spoiling.

Doesn't offend, wears well with most other skin care.

WHY oh WHY can't Ren make a lotion without their weird citronool(sp?)/linalool fragrance?? Just leave it out! It smells like floor cleaner.

It doesn't do anything other than hydrate like a meh moisturizer. Hydration lasts a few hours before it's gone (I'm dry, but not THAT dry). ZERO anti-aging, skin-improving properties.

This is one of those kind of useless moisturizers unless you're 24 with good skin. There's too much fragrance (organic or whatever) for me to use on irritated/extra dry days (and again it's not THAT hydrating). And it does almost nothing to remedy other skin concerns.

I slap this on when I'm having a serum-heavy day/night and don't want to overload my face. I also use it for hand cream in a pinch.

I won't rebuy. It's not special.

Bought in the in conjunction with two other REN products as a special offer. Really nice to use and makes my skin feel soft and protected from the wind. Skin feels "plumped" I have been using REN products for about 2 years now and find that they are great multi-taskers and just really nice to use.

At first, I loved this product. It made my skin very soft and hydrated. However, overtime I feel my skin was tired of it. It became to heavy, and the scent started to bother me. I would not recommend this to oily skin types because it is a heavier cream for sure. I also would not recommend this to sensitive skin types, because although the ingredients are soothing, the scent is so extremely strong!!!!!

Not irritating, and an ok moisturizer. But what on earth is up with the chalky white film?? Doesn't absorb well at all, and made my face look like crap all day. No thanks!
