Ratings & Reviews

I love this moisturizer!


I use it at night only. Even with my combination skin, it feels good all over my face. Absorbs quickly and is effective. It's the only one that doesn't feel heavy or greasy on my face.




The Best Product to Wear to Bed!


This goes on so smooth and dries nicely, but leaves you skin feeling baby-soft. I love the entire Skin Balancing line and even after I switched to the Resist line (I'm getting wrinkles), I still use this as my nighttime moisturizer. Works great at creating an even skin tone and feel and minimizes pores.

I buy regularly. Love it.


I use this after Clear cleanser, Skin Balancing toner then Clear BHA and/or 4% Resist BHA. Gentle but effective. Smaller pores!

Does what it says


I have oily, sensitive skin, and it's been a challenge to find a moisturiser that doesn't make my face oily half an hour after application. Was pleasantly surprised to find that this one keeps my face soft for many hours without dehydrating it. I could feel the moisturiser sinking into my skin instead of sitting on top of it, so applying it feels really pleasant. Only downside is the small packaging... I could use with a larger size!

Best Moisturiser I've Ever Had!


I love this moisturiser so much. It's the only moisturiser I've ever had that doesn't make my skin oily within minutes of applying it. It goes on so nice and smooth, soaks in fast, and stays moisturised without turning greasy. I do have to use a larger amount than other moisturisers, so it is unfortunately expensive. Please please please make a larger bottle!

Not sure? Do yourself a favor and order a sample!


Just ordered a few samples from PC for the first time including samples of this, and oh my goodness I am glad I did! I have oily/relatively sensitive skin. I have been using face lotions meant for sensitive skin for a long time, which although never clogged my pores, they were always a bit too heavy for me, very "basic," and would leave me looking shiny (which I needed no help with!). I was afraid to try something else though, especially after having done multiple rounds of Accutane throughout my life, I did not want to do anything to jeopardize my now manageable skin. But this moisturizer is ahh-mazzz-ing. Immediately reminded me of a silicone makeup primer, but without any greasiness. I looked in the mirror a few minutes after application and I had zero shine, skin looked amazingly even in color and texture. Very impressed! Glad I found a product to transition from acne-focused skin care to start slowing addressing other concerns as I approach my 30's (I'm 26). If you are on the fence about trying this product, do yourself a favor and order a sample!

Sheer Delight


I have had oily skin all of my life and for this reason I have had deep cleansing facials monthly since the age of 25. I do not require intense moisturizing during the winter since my natural oils add sufficient protection. I rather like the Skin Bal Moist. Gel during the winter months because it acts as a light barrier/primer prior to applying foundation. I don't need additional moisture protection nor am I concerned by the lack of sun protection since the foundation I use has SPF protection. This is an excellent product and effective for those with oily complexions rather than dry. During the summer months I use the Skin Bal Ultra Sheer Daily Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 30. Love the Skin Balancing Line.

I like this moisturizer . It kinda goes on like a primer. It works for my skin but iff you have a drier skin, it won't be enough moisture. I will define telly keep buying it. I use it with my serum all year round . I submitted a review before but now I used it'd or 2 weeks instead off a few days. I like it. Plus it's anti wrinkle and no fragrance
