Amazing Melt Moisturizer

This is the best for getting your feet summer ready. It melts right in doesn’t leave a greasy feel. Slather on, slip on socks wake up with renewed feet!! Doesn’t take much to make an amazing difference!

Good for dry areas

I bought this to use for really dry areas on my face post procedures and/or with products that tend to be drying. I like it for those areas, especially @ night. The product can be greasy if you use too much so a little goes along way.

Another EltaMD Winner!

My skin had gotten extremely dry from too much Retin-A use. This "Melting Moisturizer" was a wonderful solution. After one or two days, my skin was once again smooth with very little peeling. It's great for winter skin as well as sensitive skin (like mine). I mainly used it at night and lightly during the day if I'm not wearing makeup. Works great!

EltaMD Intense Moisturizer

I was extremely disappointed in this product. It gave my hands an extremely prickly feeling, and I have not been able to use it.

The cream has very oily texture. It is not absorbed into the skin. I use it only for night.

Great Moisturizer!

Really happy with the results of this product. I live in the DRY mid-west and winters kill my face. This product goes on greasy but soaks in. I am really seeing an improvement on my face for the first time during these dry winter months.

Works well!

This cream helps with dry skin and makes your skin feel smooth. It has a great nongreasy feel.

EltaMD Intense Moisturizer

Love this so much for dry Colorado winters. Goes on like a thinner petroleum but quickly absorbs. Gets rid of flaky skin and makes my skin so soft. I use it twice a day after chemical peels and it helps so much. Does not make me break out at all and I can even wear it under makeup!

Not a huge fan

First, I LOVE the EltaMD Line. That being said, this is not my favorite product. I initially bought this due to my issues with Rosacea. Had it for a few years but was only recently diagnosed. Prior to this, I was using the am and pm moisturizer and the tinted SPF. I wanted to give this a try because the price is right and was listed for help with redness. While it is good for helping retain moisture, it didn't do much for my redness, if anything. I do not like the greasy feel and really all it is, is fancy Vaseline. I will finish it up on my dry feet but probably won't be purchasing again.

Didn't Live Up to my Expectations

After reading the great reviews of this product, I was really excited to try but for some reason, it was irritating and was drying to my skin causing an eczema flare rather than alleviating it like the description and reviews claimed. I gave it two stars because unlike regular petroleum jelly, it didn't clog my pores. However, it seemed to just sit on top of my skin. I really wanted to love this product like the others, but I guess my sensitive-combination skin disagreed.

The price is right, and the quality is good. Very moisturizing!

I use this on eczema patches as well as other areas that tend to be dry on my skin. I apply it within minutes of getting out of the shower. A little goes a long way, so I spread it very thinly on my skin. I don't find it necessary to wipe off the excess since I'm using it sparingly. I've been pleased with the quality of other EltaMD products that I've purchased in the past, and this one is no exception. I will continue using.

I loved the original formula. After showering you apply it to moist skin. This is too expensive to use in this manner. It doesn't seem to stay moisturized very long either. Sorry to say.

Better Than Cerave Healing or Aquaphor

EltaMD is truly non-greasy. Much nicer to use than either Cerave Healing or Aquaphor. Glad I stumbled on it here at LovelySkin.

Cold Winter Skin

I've been using this at night because my skin gets rather cold during the winter. It feels a little slimy on my face, but it all sinks in by morning. It's also helped my nose as I've had a recent cold, and I've been blowing my nose a lot, and it's kept it nice and calm.

Like it

It does what it says. Kind of greasy but it doesn’t seem to clog my pores while still providing intense moisture. I will buy again

Best ever

I have clog-prone dry skin. Took me years to find a moisturizer that worked for me. I've been using this now for at least 8 years, and will never stop. Love it!

Not as moisturizing as I’d hoped.

I have extremely sensitive skin and can only tolerate using Retin-A cream once a week at most, despite diluting it with Vanicream Lite moisturizer (the only moisturizer my skin doesn’t react to). After finding success with several EltaMD sunscreens and their eye gel as well as reading so many positive reviews for this product from other Retin-A users, I decided to give their Intense Moisturizer a try. Despite applying it both as directed (on moist bare skin) and as a top layer to “seal in” other products, I’ve not been able to increase the frequency of Retin-A use. I also find it to be very greasy, even after dabbing with a tissue. It performs better when used as an overnight hand moisturizer, but I will probably not repurchase.
