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.

Product hasn't arrived yet (international order)

Hi, I would like you to please offer a different international shipping option such as a courier like aramex who will take customs into account (DHL might offer this too idk). I’ve had to wait 5 months for a book sent with USPS to make it through customs and I’m worried about the product integrity if it gets stuck in the South African Postal/ customs system for that long (According to tracking it made it to SA but this is where it gets stuck). I ordered some purito unscented serum in the meantime which works well so my skin is looked after while I wait. looking forward to the day it eventually arrives x (I’ll give your star back once I’ve tried the product haha)

So hydrating!

I've been hooked on this moisturizer with the Aquafix Hydrating Water Gel and it's a dream combo.

Chemist Confessions moisturizers

You don’t need to publish this. I have no experience with moisturizers in 70 years. I hesitate to even put on my oily face. I don’t know what to expect. I trust that your formulations are helpful to skin chemistry but I’m afraid I am set in my ways.

Never need another line!

Using this entire line has made a marked different in my skin. I have been oily/combo for my entire life and since using this line from A-Z my skin is now naturally balanced and perfect!!

Soothing and nourishing

I use this at night and whenever my skin feels a bit drier during the day than usual. I like that the moisturizer is a good balance of emollients, ceramides, etc. only wish it came in bigger sizes.
