Bought this for my teenage son who struggles with breakouts. The smell and texture is fine, but unfortunately it irritated and burnt his skin. He stopped using it after four days. I would be careful to recommend.

This has been my go-to moisturiser for a while now, and I will continue to buy it! It's not as thick/heavy as other moisturisers, and still leaves my skin nicely hydrated. Works great under make-up. 10/10.

Took a chance on this moisturiser and was very impressed. I have very sensitive skin (hormonal adult acne) and this cream has been gentle enough for me, while also visibly helping to heal scars and flaky skin. It's also a nice thick texture and a little goes a long way!

My husband is happy with his moisturiser. Does not leave any oilyness absorbs well.

Really nice moisturiser. Not greasy, smells amazing. I have acne prone skin and it seems to be helping. Not a miracle cream (nothing is) but it’s definitely making my skin feel good and soothed and I’ve had no break outs since starting to use it.

Doesn't leave skin oily or too matte, it's just right.
01/04/2021, By Sabz
This is a wonderful light moisturizer - spectacularly soothing. Highly recommend it for acne prone skin.
29/03/2021, By Sally
I have struggled to find a moisturizer that actually works for oily skin. Most of them only have a shine free appearance for a while and then all the oil breaks through. But this moisturizer keeps the oil away for hours. Also acne prone skin friendly.
05/02/2021, By Inbal
I use this on my sensitive skin and it doesn’t irritate me.
03/02/2021, By Marlize
Has so many wonderful ingredients! Tea tree oil really does help with oily skin and blemishes.

I love this product. It's lightweight and it smells so good. I have only just started using it but it has not caused any breakouts or problems. I am happy I tried this product.
18/10/2020, By Eliza
Excellent product. Great for oily and acne prone skin.
16/10/2020, By Georgie
This product has simplified my skincare routine. From using two different products ( twice the waste) to using one product for day and night, I have loved the shift. The texture of the moisturiser is not greasy, it doesn't sit on top of the skin but sinks in and really refreshes. It works great under makeup but is also good enough to wear alone with a little powder to keep my normal oily shine to a minimum.

My Husband Loves this moisturiser. Received it as a sample and he is so excited to have a full product.
16/09/2020, By Tracy
Got this as a sample - it is lovely & lightweight but sufficiently moisturizing.
11/08/2020, By kaydee
got this as a sample, it leaves your face feeling fresh and clean, i also love the smell
09/08/2020, By Tam
I use this cream on my face and neck. I love the herbal aroma and it goes on easily and relieves dryness beautifully without being too rich. My husband can also use the cream when his skin is too dry - the scent is not specifically feminine - actually I find it to be more of an 'aftershave' type smell and very soothing. I have sensitive skin and have not had any reactions. I still get mild oil production in the T zone.
26/06/2020, By Lili
Lovely and refreshing, very moisturing
18/06/2020, By Jade
Really great for sensitive skin. I struggle with eczema on my face when using harsh products and this product is perfect! Also smells amazing.
28/05/2020, By Tammy
Fresh, pleasant smell. Moisturizing but not oily and doesn't leave a residue. Soaks into the skin well and doesn't cause breakouts.

Makes you fresh in the morning
08/05/2020, By eltina
Love this moisturiser, I have been using it for many years and now have my daughters using it as well
13/04/2020, By Monique
This didn't smell pleasant to me at all, very strong but also not a nice scent. And a few minutes after applying, it smelled like an expired lotion that had gone off. After seeing everyone else's reviews i'm guessing I might have received a dud sample though. It felt nice on my face though.
08/04/2020, By Simone
I've tried many different natural moisturisers. This is the only one that works for me. Lovely smell. Not oily. Lovely texture. Any my acne prone skin is very happy.
27/03/2020, By Gabriella
Affordable, effective moisturiser. Smells nice too.
09/01/2020, By Caitlin
I have combination skin, which this moisturiser works well for. I find if I use it twice a day though, my skin tends to become a bit oily. Otherwise I love it.
05/01/2020, By Helper
Use well
26/12/2019, By Sue
My combination sensitive skin love this moisturizer, I use it in the evening and just splash cold water in the morning and apply my sunscreen. It's has a light texture and absorbs very well into the skin. My skin looks beautifully mosturised the following day. I would definitely recommend it.
22/11/2019, By J
I have a mature skin but get blk ked pores quite easily. I don't know how I ended up ordering this one (I like the lavender one for dry mature or tired skin) but ended up layering- using this under the lavender one in my problem areas. It's not very moisturizing so I don't use it for that purpose, but it's really good for my blocked pores.. had a bit of a break out from the clearing out but now my skin actually looks brighter! Somehow my pigmentation looks better. I use the lavender on all over my face. Both these products work as summer products for me and in winter I layer the lavender one with something richer.

This is a fresh smelling moisturiser that feels lovely on the skin. I have recently started using it in conjunction with the cleanser my skin is feeling healthy.
24/10/2019, By MsJay
I use this moisturiser both day and night and my combination skin simply loves soaking up its down to earth goodness. As the dry Free State air can wreak havoc on my sometimes sensitive skin, I like to occasionally warm a few drops of jojoba oil in my hands prior to applying this moisturiser for the ultimate skin treat. Heavenly!
13/10/2019, By Lara
I used this product for 3 days and broke out in a burning, painful, itchy rash all over my face, neck, and hands. Wouldn’t recommend this at all. Bought the face was as well. Complete waste of money.
29/09/2019, By Pink
I’ve been using the Down to earth moisturizers for a almost a year. I’m really enjoying them. The Refresh moisturizer is ideal for my combination skin in summer. I’ve used the Revive in winter as my skin is drier in winter. It’s perfect.
05/09/2019, By Robin
My nightly moisturizer, not oily and absorbs well, helps calm skin problems.
22/07/2019, By Cliss
Very good moisturizer, though I only use it at night as it makes my skin a bit oily in the daytime.
07/06/2019, By Dahne
Just like the cleanser, I love the moisturizer. Skin is softer than ever. Love the refreshing smell
05/06/2019, By Vanessa

01/06/2019, By Paige
Love the consistency of this product - it comes out thickish but absorbs beautifully into the skin with no sticky/oily residue. Smells amazing and a little amount goes a long way. I have acne-prone skin and this doesn’t break me out at all but isn’t drying on the skin.
31/05/2019, By Dahne

Works wonders - skin feels moisturized and supple! Smells gorgeous!
16/04/2019, By J
I thought I'd give this a try even though it's suggested for combination or oily skin (which I don't have) and so although I knew it wouldn't probably give me the bit if extra oil I need, I find it amazing. it is very fresh and lovely it doesn't leave my skin feeling tight. I use a separate tissue oil when i use this and its a perfect combo. I enjoy this brand.
05/04/2019, By Cris
I purchased this product for my husband to try after scanning the ingredients list and deciding that it didn't seem likely to have a "girly" smell. We were so pleasantly surprised when he started using it - it smells like lemongrass :) He reports that it is light yet moisturising, and doesn't leave an oily residue on the skin like many other natural/homemade moisturisers. He even told me to definitely order it for him again when his is done. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because, for some, the lemongrass smell might be a bit overpowering (a matter of personal preference). We like it though!
20/03/2019, By Michelle
I received a sample of this moisturiser with one of my purchases and I was so impressed that I immediately placed my order! This product smells great and feels fantastic on your skin.
