  • "I got a sample of this and I’m bringing it with me on my trip over Christmas. It’s the best size for airplane travel and it’s also gentle and moisturizing and doesn’t make me break out! I also love the packaging!" in 59 reviews
  • "First off, can we talk about the packaging?! It’s adorable, and I love the type of pump it has! **[I want to give this 5 stars, but it left my hands feeling dry after I applied it to my face, which I thought was odd. Besides that strange quality.] I put it on at night and woke up the next morning with my face still feeling moisturized! That’s a HUGE deal for me because I have dry skin, and dry heat/air in my house, which doesn’t help my skin. I often sleep with a humidifier at night because of how dry it gets...so keep that in mind when I say this moisturizer lasted overnight and again all day after I did my morning skincare routine and reapplied it! It doesn’t have much of a scent, which I always appreciate because of my sensitive skin. One pump is plenty, although I used two because of my dry skin. Even with two, it didn’t make my face feel greasy. It’s perfectly lightweight, hence the name! I’m not sure if I’d replace my current moisturizer, because it’s a little more expensive, but I’ll definitely finish the rest of what I have, AND I would totally recommend it to friends. ————— **[See update] I plan on doing a hand mask soon to properly moisturize my hands. So, if the Featherweight Moisturizer doesn’t make them feel dry after that, then I’ll update my review and give the moisturizer the 5 stars it deserves... since the dry hand issue would be unrelated. **Update: Like I previously said, I would update this if the hand mask changed anything. It did. My hands were in need of major hydration, so I’m fairly certain this product had nothing to do with them feeling dry. I still prefer my other moisturizer at night, but I use this during the daytime under my foundation." in 27 reviews
  • "This moisturizer is a little bit heavier than I normally go for, but with that said, my skin feels so soft and smooth after using it. I have sensitive combo skin and this hasn't caused me any issues so far. It doesn't break me out either, which is sometimes a concern. A cool feature of this product is the dispenser. It's a pump top that's completely sealed, so there's no contamination from hands going into the bottle. I appreciate that!" in 18 reviews

I have been testing the Featherweight Daily Moisturizing Cream for about two weeks now. My skin is normal-to-dry with not a lot of textural issues or sensitivity. I would give this a 4.5 if I could!

I only used this as my morning moisturizer and not night time. At night I prefer a thick cream. I feel like this is a combo of a gel moisturizer and cream which I liked. It kind of reminds me of the Drunk Elephant Protini. In the morning I use a toner, essence, and vitamin C serum. This layered well with all the products I used, and it didn't feel filmy or greasy. It absorbed well into my skin. Makeup also layered well on top of it and I didn't notice any changes in longevity of my makeup. When I didn’t wear makeup, my skin looked and felt hydrated and healthy. I didn’t feel dry mid-day which made me happy! I haven't noticed any breakouts when I started using this, so I don't have any sensitivity. I think the only thing

I didn’t like about this product was the packaging. It’s kind of bulky and takes up a lot of counter space. The pump on it I love! It’s hygienic and gives you the right amount of product. A little goes a long way if you pat it into your skin instead of rubbing it in.

I really like the ingredients list. It has avocado protein which is hydrating. SS’s main selling point is there Cha-7 Complex which is their peptide blend. I think the only thing I question about it is how much of the peptides go into it. I noticed they are farther down the list so it's not highly concentrated with peptides. Also, the oils in it I feel like some people would have sensitivity to.

I could see myself repurchasing this in the future, but as of right now I’m happy with my other two moisturizers. I have a gel moisturizer in the morning that helps make my vitamin C serum more effective. I would recommend this product to others. I think those that are interested in the DE Protini, but not thrilled about to price, would like this.
I did receive this for free from Influenster to test and review.

When it comes to skincare one of the most important things to me is that it doesn't irritate my sensitive skin. I have found this moisturizer (  Saturday Skin Featherweight Daily Moisturizing Cream ) is not only very gentle, it delivers plenty of moisture for how lightweight it is. I am acne prone and sometimes creams tend to make my skin feel congested and I develop whiteheads. That has not been the case with this product. When I use an acid product or exfoliate my skin this doesn't sting like I have found other moisturizers do - which means my skin is less red and irritated. 
I have dry skin and I have found when I use it during the day it leaves my skin moisturized and glowing without feeling greasy and has not disrupted any products I put on top. When I am running on a tight schedule and only use this product after cleansing my skin still feels comfortable. There is no tightness and I do not have dry patches on my skin by the end of the day. At night, I find that two layers hydrates better and when I wake up with glowing skin as well. When I am feeling very dry, I can still use my facial oils on top and have had no problem.
If you are a person who does not like using products in a pot for sanitary reasons, this is the product for you. I love that it has the press pump that releases the lotion. That means dust and any other impurities will stay out of my skincare. When you unscrew the top, the lotion is still in an air tight compartment so it is not exposed to the elements. I love this about the cream because I know it is still just as fresh as it was when I first used it. 
I would compare this cream to the belif The True Cream Moisturizing Bomb in terms of consistency and amount of hydration, but I prefer this product because of its packaging. 
I really hope that other companies start to use similar packaging and also move away from adding unnecessary fragrances because this cream it amazing. This product does have a light scent but that it contributed by its ingredients. When I finish my current jar I will be repurchasing. For the price, I think it is very fair because it is 50 ml and a little goes a long way. At the moment it seems to be an online product exclusive to Sephora, I hope to see it in stores soon.
Even my boyfriend who can't be bothered with skincare has been using it, which proves how convenient and effective it is. 
I received this product free from an Influenster contest but all thoughts and concerns are honest and my own.

This is a really lightweight moisturizer that will probably work well for different skin types. It is very gentle and did not cause any breakouts for my sensitive, acne-prone, combination skin. I received this product for review purposes and tried it both as a day-time and night-time moisturizer. I found that this was sufficient enough to keep my hydrated throughout the day, but did pair it with an oil at night. This has a lotion consistency that for the most part absorbs well into the skin, but I can still feel a slight tacky residue even once the product has had time to settle into the skin. It works well under makeup and I have found in the few weeks that I used it, that it did help the texture of my skin feel smoother. I also love the packaging bc since there is a pump that dispels the product, it's quite hygienic, but I don't like how you can't tell how much product is left. I used about half a pump and found it to be enough to cover my entire face. It is also very lightly scented that I barely notice when applying and does not linger. Unless you have extremely dry skin, I can see this working for a variety of skin types. However, I will probably continue to use my Belif Aqua Bomb because I prefer the gel texture that has very similar results (and is cheaper).

So as far as face moisturizers go I'm usually really picky. I have acne prone, combination skin, and get pretty oily in my t-zone. If I am not careful with what I use for my face moisturizers I either end up with breakouts, or really greasy skin. So I have found that gel moisturizers work best for me, and my skin. So when I started testing this out I really thought I wasn't gonna end up liking it, but I was wrong. I've been using this moisturizer for about a month now, and I love it. First of all it has a really nice light, fresh, citrus scent that I love. I haven't had any issues with this product causing me to breakout, which really surprised me. It also hasn't been causing me to look greasy, or get more oily than I already do, it just makes my skin have a really pretty glow. Even though my skin does get really oily in my t-zone, my face also gets really dry too. The areas that get dry the most are my cheeks, my jawline, and my nose. Now I don't really understand how my nose gets so dry considering it also gets really oily, but it does lol. I tend to get really dry, and flaky on the sides of my nose, and this moisturizer has really been helping with that. This moisturizes my face REALLY well, it leaves my skin looking and feeling so hydrated, and my skin feels incredibly soft. I also haven't had any issues wearing this with my makeup. It doesn't look or feel to heavy, and my makeup goes on and blends out beautifully. The other thing I LOVE about this moisturizer is the packaging. I love the colors on the box, and the pink color on the bottle, but the packaging of the actual bottle is my favorite. It has a flat top push pump, which I think is amazing. It's way more sanitary having packaging like this, because you don't have to put your fingers into the product to get it out, so you won't spread any germs or bacteria in it, and you don't have to worry about getting anything in the product either. It stays as fresh as it was when you first got it, which is great. The push pump also pumps out the perfect amount of product for your face, well at least for me. The directions say to use 2 pumps, which I've been doing, and that gives me the perfect amount. I recieved this product complimentary from Influenster in a Saturday Skin Voxbox to test out and review, and I'm really glad that I did. I have fallen in love with this product, and will definitely be purchasing this on my own once I run out. I definitely 100% recommend trying this product out if you haven't yet, it's worth it.

This lotion arrived at a great time, I was using a lot of drying products to get a breakout under control and needed something that would lock in hydration and help with redness and inflammation. After only a few days, I felt like Saturday Skin Featherweight Daily Moisturizing Cream did just that! My skin is super sensitive so I also enjoyed the packaging that dispenses a little product (one pump is more than enough) without contaminating the rest of the jar. The lotion is thick but absorbs well and doesn’t feel like it leaves a residue which I really like! Docking one star due to high price point. Disclaimer: I received this product for free through the VoxBox campaign, but it did not affect my positive review :) :) :)

Edit #2: I’ve been using this lotion consistently for about 3 weeks now. It’s good when my skin is extra dry, but for daily use I feel like it’s too heavy. I started to feel my pores clogging up so I switched to using it on my chest/hands/arms. It functions as a great body lotion! I probably would not purchase this lotion in the future due to the high price point...

Edit #3: stocking up at Sephora and I ended up buying another one due to having a gift card! Mostly using it as an after sun lotion for m y face/body. Thank you, Influenster for helping me discover such cute #vanityporn !!!

I had never heard of Saturday Skin prior to this VoxBox, and I can't begin to thank Influenster enough for the opportunity to review this for free!  To be honest, it has changed my skin!  I have some health concerns that lead to flare-ups on my face... add to that sensitive skin (chemical allergies) and there are days my face looks like a train wreck.  I checked the ingredients on Saturday Skin before I tried it, and figured I had nothing to lose... now I seriously have my go-to skin regime!

The Featherweight Daily Moisturizing Cream was different in a good way.  I appreciate that the packaging keeps the product from bacterial contamination and dispenses the right amount with each pump.  It absorbed quickly into my skin, left no sticky residue, and keep me moisturized all day.  Even with combination skin, my hydration was balanced and good to go.  I only wish they put more in the packaging, but that's ok... totally worth it all the same!  Combine that with the other parts of their skincare regime and my skin has been changed for the better... thank you, Saturday Skin!

Let me start by saying, I'm in love with this applicator method - can I give it more than 5*? You push down on the top and it dispenses your moisturizer (one pump is all I needed, even though it recommends two); this keeps your cream clean and the dispenser surface is nice and smooth for cleaning/getting all your cream when dispensed. This moisturizer is lightweight and feels silky on the skin, it may not be enough for other dry skin beauties out there during the cooler months, but should be great for the summer and year round for everyone else. Sadly, this product does not agree with my sensitive skin - no breakout, just a really itchy face that worsened with each application (3* for sensitivity). I couldn't see an obvious trigger for my reaction, so that's not to say it won't work for others with sensitive skin. I'm still glad I tried this, and will likely be attempting to swap my moisturizer into this wonderful application system ;) This product
contains hydrogenated lecithin.

This complimentary product was sent to me via Influenster in exchange for my honest review.

Short version:
Awesome packaging for dispensing the product; above average quality moisturizer.

Long version:
Nice light-weight, non-greasy moisturizer. It does have a scent, but it's light, citrusy, and pleasant.
I recommend for all skin types. I would say it's best suited for women nearing the end of their 20s or early 30s, who are starting to realize that the "party's over" when it comes to effortlessly looking young.

Considering the ingredients and formulation, the price is a good value. And one jar will probably last a long time- the directions recommend 2 pumps, but 1 has been sufficient for me.

Lastly, like other reviewers I freakin' love the packaging! More brands need to start using this kind of pump. It's airless, which is great for 2 reasons: 1) the product stays germ-free because you're not sticking your dirty fingers into it, and 2) it preserves the shelf of the product. (FIY- cosmetics have an expiration date, just like food they start to go bad after opening).

I am over the moon with this moisturizer! This is the first one I have been able to use without waking up to monster zit oil fest! I am not lying when I tell you how much I love this stuff. I have combo, acne prone skin and typically stay away from moisturizer because its always too heavy for my skin to handle. I use this and my face feels normal! I woke up after the first night expecting an oil slick and holy guacamole my face was barely slick! It's so lightweight and the jar it comes in is just as neat. No more guessing how much to squeeze out. All I need is about a half pump and I'm good. ✌
My 5 year old and I both use it. Even her skin feels soft and supple since using it! Just one of the many reasons why I love influenster. Never would have heard of this brand if it wasn't for them!
