Helps remove blackheads
December 28, 2018

This Korean dermatologist said that cholesterol and some long chain ceramide that helps soften large, hard blackheads. (I know it’s gross) so that when you wash your face, they are easier to melt away. So, I looked up some creams with high concentration of cholesterol and found this.. this works!!! If you have tried everything for your ginormous blackheads, including BHA, AHA, clays, cleansing oils.. include this in your regimen and you will see noticeable difference. My holy grail!!!

Super easy to use anti wrinkle and aging product.

Wonderful Moisturizer
December 11, 2018

Like a drink of water for your skin. I apply twice a day after using cleanser. My skin soaks it up and shines.

More moisture please
November 22, 2018

I have dry sensitive skin and did not find this to be at all moisturizing and a bit irritating.

September 22, 2018

I wanted to like this knowing it has ceramides in it. But sadly it was not moisturizing enough for me. All moisturizers from Elta I tried are not moisturizing enough for my combination skin, even in the summer, probably because they are all oil-free, and my skin needs some lipid-based product.

I have combination skin. My dermatologist friend recommended this after I complained of constant breakouts. Saw a difference nearly overnight. On my second bottle. Great for aging skin that still struggles with acne.

Barrier Renewal Complex
July 28, 2018

Barrier Renewal Complex goes on light & is completely absorbed by the skin. After a few weeks of use, I started to see a difference in my skin. I am 60 and live in the high mountain desert. I use this product only at night. My skin is firmer, wrinkles not as pronounced. My complexion appears more even. Sometimes, I need a little more moisture. I am thinking of adding another EltaMD moisturizer to use either in AM or PM when extra moisture is needed. I use Elta MD Body Lotion, cleanser, eye cream, SPF lip protector and of course Elta MD SPF Clear for daytime sun protection.

My Favorite Moisturizer
July 28, 2018

I'm using Tretinoin every night to control acne and for anti-aging purpose. I have oily skin and prone to break-outs. I've been looking for a well-rounded moisturizer that is not too heavy to break me out, while moisturizing enough to help reduce the peeling and redness caused by Tretinoin. The ingredients in this reminds me of Cerave PM lotion, which doesn't work out for me, I don't think Cerave PM is occlusive enough and have suspected it giving me acne. Although the Elta MD's key ingredients seems similar to Cerave PM, it is more moisturizing in my opinion and doesn't give me any more acne. I really appreciate the fact that it includes (so does Cerave) HA, Ceramides and Niacinamide. These are exactly the ingredients that I'm looking for in my moisturizer, and there are few nonsense ingredients in it. Really there isn't anything to complain about. My dermatologist agrees that this is a great moisturizer. I'll definitely repurchase this one (to me this is rare).

This really helps my dry skin from retin A use. Does not cause any breakouts! Would highly recommend!!!

barrier renewal product
June 06, 2018

Love this product, as it evens out the tone of my skin. I use it with tinted sunscreen. The 2 of them give me a light cove for everyday use. I am 82 & very pleased

Great moisturizer
May 31, 2018

I live in Colorado and dry skin is a constant battle. This moisturizer is great! Goes on smooth and leaves my skin feeling refreshed!

It's pretty good. Not a miracle worker, but good. I've been using this product for a while. Smell can be a bit funny, but I don't mind the smell at all.

EltaMD Barrier Renewal Complex
March 03, 2018

I am so happy that I bought this moisturizer. I have been using it now for a little over one week and I am beginning to see some good results. I will continue to use it.

Love it!
February 07, 2018

I use this product every day and night. I am in my late 20s. I have some rosacea. My skin is pretty sensitive, so it feels nice to use this product after exfoliation. I love the Elta MD sunscreens. Sometimes, EltaMD sunscreen does not go well with some of the daily moisturizer, but because this is from the same company, I don't see those problems. Love it!

Excellent lightweight moisturizer!
January 25, 2018

Love this product! Goes on smooth and keeps my face moisturized. Wish I loved the SPF versions as much as the non-SPF. This version is great, minus the lack of sun protection!

effective, hydrating, great post-procedure
January 09, 2018

Got this to use post-laser and it has been very effective and hydrating, especially in these cold, dry winter months. It doesn't cause problems with my sensitive, rosacea-prone skin and doesn''t clog pores. Can be worn under makeup and used day/night. Would definitely purchase again.

Loved my softer skin
September 07, 2017

Wasn't sure how this product would work, but I loved it. Not greasy at all and made my skin feel youthful and soft. Would've given it 5 stars if not for the funny smell it has.

Seems to work well
July 28, 2017

This is a new product for me, but I already ordered a second "helping." I have found it provides an extra level of moisture for my aging skin (which used to be on the oily side but is not) without creating an oily feel to my skin even in summer. I am not sure how much "better" my poor sun damaged facial skin looks, but it feels better. The product has a light feel to it and is not heavy when applied. I appreciate the sales that LovelySkin has on the product as it becomes more affordable for this retired lady! I can recommend it for sure.

Miracle Worker

My skin is really dry and damaged from over exfoliating. This has greatly improved my skin. I will repurchase!

Love Me Some EltaMD!
April 25, 2017

I have been using EltaMD products for several years at the recommendation of my dermatologist. The Barrier Renewal Complex is great and works wonders when my skin gets irritated due to topical retinoids or other acne products I've used. I can apply it to irritated areas to see a noticeable (and long lasting) reduction in the inflammation and scaling. Highly recommend!

Great product but smells
March 06, 2017

I love EltaMD products and use them daily. I have been using the Barrier Renewal Complex and I like the way my skin feels. However I cannot stand the smell of the product so I have gone to using at night only to avoid smelling the product all day. If it didn't have the odor then I would give this product 5 stars.

Thanks EltaMD for a great product!
January 07, 2017

I have been using EltaMD products for several years at the recommendation of my dermatologist. Love this Barrier Renewal Complex. I am using it twice a day and have noticed a difference in my skin. It moisturizes my skin without feeling greasy and it doesn't look as dull. I will definitely reorder this product!

EltaMD Barrier Renewal Complex
January 03, 2017

I am so impressed with the results from this product! I am a long time EltaMD Sunscreen user and decided to try another product. My redness has been significantly been reduced and the tone of my skin is so much better! Love this product! Love all EltaMD products! No need to try anything else!

Noticeable difference
December 27, 2016

Within a few days I noticed a change in the condition of my skin. My face felt smoother and small wrinkles were diminished. The only negative is the product has a slightly unpleasant scent.

Love this!
December 16, 2016

I have mild rosacea and dry skin. The weather has changed and winter is here. Barrier Renewal Complex doesn't increase redness from the rosacea. It's also great under makeup and as a night cream. I rub the excess into my cuticles and it helps there, too. I wish I hadn't waited so long to try this.
