  • "I got this as a part of a beauty box and as I never heard of the brand Simple, I didn't even know whether it's drugstore brand or something else. This is the first moisturizer that I truly feel and see working. When I looked it up on the internet and realized that this is drugstore product that doesn't even cost that much, I was amazed! My skin is on the dry side and Simple does a great job in moisturizing and softening it. It's so light, absorbs almost immediately and certainly doesn't leave your skin shiny or oily. I would give it A- just because this product is meant for sensitive skin but for some reason I almost always feel tingling sensation when applying this moisturizer. I am fine with this little tingling but since I don't even have the most sensitive skin, product could have been a little bit more gentle. Other than that, it's great!" in 439 reviews
  • "When it comes to skin care less is definitely more. This moisturizer with its short list of ingredients does the best job of moisturizing my combination skin. It does especially well on my oily t-zone. I can only use it at night though because of my oily skin. It doesn't seem to blend to well with my foundation. Everything just ends up feeling cakey. I can't really blame that on the lotion though. " in 286 reviews
  • "I have combination skin. What I like about this is it helps with my dry skin but doesn't make the oily parts greasy. Light and cooling. Not much needed. Goes a long way. " in 195 reviews

This is honestly one of the best moisturizers I have tried. This was my first time ever trying this product and I will be a forever buyer. It went beyond my expectations. It is very gentle on sensitive skin and I recommend this to any who has problems with oily skin cause I have oily skin and some moisturizers make my skin feel greasy but not this product. Great product and so worth the price.

This is a fantastic moisturizer from the drugstore. It's super light weight and does not break me out! I have sensitive skin also and it doesn't irritate my skin. It's not intense by no means and is more of an everyday moisturizer. I don't like wearing this one under makeup since it does leave a slight film on my face and that is why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5. Its a really good product otherwise!

This is my new "go to" brand for facial products! I love this entire line of products! I have to use the hydrating moisturizer due to my mature, dry skin in the winter, but I am also going to continue to use it during the summer. It is a light moisturizer, it goes on my face easily & I find that it provides enough moisture for me. My foundation glides on over my moisturizer easily.

I love the Simple products first of all. I have extremely sensitive skin and have become more sensitive with age. I have a problem finding moisturizers that won't break me out under my eyes. I like this products because it is very light and hydrating. It feels very cooling. I wish it felt a little more moisturizing however. But it's states it's hydrating and that it is!

Lets start with, I hate the smell.
Its like damp cardboard boxes all over my face. Ew.
It also didn't seem to get along with my baremin. Makeup
Turning my normally smooth foundation into a cracking mess. It actually dried out my "T" zone along with a epic gift of acne, and I discontinued use after that.
My friend uses it and it works great for her, just not me apparently.

I am all about the simple skin care brand. I love everything that they have. With that being said, they have a rich moisturizer and a light moisturizer. I love the light moisturizer for during the day because you do not feel like you have lotion on your face all day. But I also love the rich moisturizer for night time because then I know that it is working all night long.

I absolutely love this to use as a daytime moisturizer. It has a very thin consistency that keeps skin moisturized without feeling heavy or greasy. The moisture lasts all day and I rarely have to reapply. It works great under makeup because again it's not greasy or heavy and doesn't clog pores. I wouldn't recommend this for people with really dry skin because it doesn't deliver a huge amount of moisture, but for someone with normal to oily skin who just wants a light moisturizer, this is perfect.

I did not like this product. It totally irritated my face and the area around my mouth, in particular. The packaging is cute, and I like other Simple products, so I wanted to try this affordable product. I think I might be allergic to an ingredient- I've been using this as a body moisturizer instead and I like the non-greasy finish and soft skin it leaves behind.

I have very sensitive skin and I am unbelievably dry in the winter. This moisturizer helps renew my skin and bring life back in to it but also does not cause any breakouts or redness. It's perfect!!

I started using this moisturizer because the old one I used was more of a cream based product and I have oily skin. Simple hydrating light moisturizer is a water based product so it doesn't make me extra greasy and provides a nice base for my foundation. I also use it at night and it works really well! I definitely recommend this for anyone who had oily skin!

I have been looking into a moisturizer that's good for oily skin and won't cause breakouts as I suffer from acne. Anyone who use this product would you recommend this for a person with oily skin to use after washing their face as a moisturizer underneath makeup or no?

I have been searching for a new moisturizer that doesn't leave my face too oily but hydrates all day long. I work long hours and it seems that at the end of the day my face appears greasy. I tend to have combination skin, meaning it's dry and oily depending on weather mostly or certain areas. How does this product work?
