Water-loving humectants hold lasting hydration to your skin
5% Glycerin: the humectant water-grabbing gold standard ingredient. This small molecule can effectively wedge into your skin for that plump, soft skin feel.
1% Sodium PCA: This molecule is naturally found in your skin’s water-holding system (NMFs - Natural Moisturizing Factors). Replenish with Aquafix!
1% Panthenol: aka. pro-vitamin B5, this dual purpose molecule both hydrates and soothes skin
0.2% Sodium Hyaluronate: This large molecule can grab up to 1000x its weight in water, keeping moisture to the skin and providing long term hydration.
Long-term barrier repair, moisturization benefits
3% Ceramides Complex
Skin soothers at effective doses to calm irritated skin
1% Boswellia Serrata Extract: Indian frankincense is an ancient extract still relevant today for its skin calming properties. It can calm skin irritated by aggressive active ingredients like acids and retinol
0.5% Bisabolol: The isolated, active components of German Chamomile. It not only effectively soothes skin, but can brighten your complexion too.

I loved this moisturizer for the winter and cooler months but for the summer, it feels too oily and I think I’m getting clogged pores from the moisturizer. I think I need to switch to aquafix for the summer so I will try that next.
To say I’m obsessed would be an understatement. I’m someone with dry, acne prone skin and Mr. Reliable leaves my skin feeling cozy all day without irritating or breaking me out. It’s light for summer but also effective enough to keep my skin moisturized all day!
The moisturizer itself is lovely. However, I tried it on three separate occasions which all left me with bright pink itchy facial skin. I'm very disappointed because it really moisturized nicely and absorbed quickly.
Best lightweight moisturizer I’ve ever used. I tell everyone to use it.
I love this moisturizer, it’s all I want to use. So glad it’s back in stock!
