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

Husband’s fav

My husband has been using this for years now and he loves it. Zero complaints. Perfect for his normal but sometimes sensitive skin.

Husband loves Mr. Reliable

Skincare for men can be tricky because it is often too perfumed and for my husband it was all overwhelming. He felt that he needed a moisturizer but he had yet to find one that he liked. He tried the ones that I loved, but he wasn't a fan, until I got him a sample of Mr. Reliable. He is very oily at times and this lotion is perfect for him. He feels that it moisturizes without leaving a residue. After 2 years he still loves it and is always reminding me to order more so that he doesn't run out.

Perfect for Summer for Dry Skin

The texture is light, yet it feels very hydrating. There is a light scent from the geranium EO. Using on its own for summer, and will see how to best use when it gets cold.

Best Moisturizer Ever!

This is the only moisturizer I will use! I love that it has minimal but effective ingredients and it is non-toxic and fragrance free. It feels AMAZING when applied to my skin and is so moisturizing; it adds a nice glow to my skin. My only wish is that it was available in a larger container. I would definitely recommend this moisturizer and I will continue buying it for as long as it's available!

Holy grail moisturizer.

Where has this been all my life? This is a perfect moisturizer! It has nothing in it that irritates my skin and it promotes skin health. I love that it isn’t too heavy and layers well under makeup. This is now a holy grail product. Love it! It’s so gentle and works so well - I finally have a glow without using any irritating products or ingredients!
