I was waiting to get the Pyunkang Yul Moisture Cream for so long now and I was so happy to finally get it! I love it so much. It's so moisturizing and perfect for fall when things get colder/drier. I have oily skin and it really sunk into my skin without getting things greasy at all!
The first few uses, I really liked this moisturizer, but then after a while it started making my skin quite dry to the point of flaking. The texture is very nice and I like how it applies.
I'm a 43-year old, caucasian female who lives in a very humid climate inside the U.S.
In the last few months I have been diagnosed with a series of issues: leaky gut, MTHFR, and a huge list of food-related items that my body has become very allergic to. I thought it important to mention all of this because some of the things that I have become sensitive and allergic to are found in heavy concentrations in many other beauty products, thus, it's been a huge struggle for me to find something I can use that doesn't cause my skin to become very red, inflamed, dry and flaky. I chose this product after seeing it on EWG.org (a site that verifies product's potential toxicity and allergens). I ordered this product, but didn't want to get my hopes up because I've had such bad luck with everything else. However, I am so very happy to report that after using this product for a few days, my skin has been soothed!! The redness and flakiness were immediately diminished. My skin did not feel hot to the touch, nor did become dryer or more acne prone from (I guess) just being aggravated. I REALLY like this product so far, and I hope that my skin continues to do well with it. I'm seriously convinced that due to the lower number of ingredients in this product (which I think is wonderful!), and that it's staying away from (huge amounts) of coconut oil and almond oil (I don't even think there's coconut or almond oil in this!! Almost every other American product these days appear to be using these two oils specifically in high concentrations & for me, being allergic to both (along with avocado oil, peanut, and soybean oils) this product is just a Godsend). Dear OHLOLLY, please never change this formula, people like me who have allergies to a lot of widely, overused ingredients in American products really appreciate having a product that delivers on its promise. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you so much, OHLOLLY!!!
I've been using this moisturizer for about two weeks now, and I have to say, I am loving it so far! The texture is very light, and it's very easy to apply. It sinks in nicely, and it really leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth. I only use it at night time - I always wake up with plump, moisturized skin! It hasn't caused me any breakouts or sensitivities, either, which is always nice. I will probably repurchase, but the jar is so big, I have no idea when I'll even finish it!
I'm in my early 30s and have combination oily skin.
This product is scent free, non-irritating, light-weight and it does great job of keeping my face moisturized in dry Cali weather. And I'm able to go with my pregnancy without any breakouts or irritation! :)
I tend to have dry skin mostly.. this absorbs beautifully and leaves your skin moisturized but not greasy!
Lovely, light & absorbs beautifully!
I am enjoying this cream so far. I have dehydrated, oily skin and a weak skin barrier at the moment. This cream is not so heavy as to leave my skin feeling greasy, but it's so light so that it doesn't actually moisturize. I appreciate that it has no smell, and it has a small spatula included so that I don't need to dip my fingers into the jar.
Love, love love this product for summer!
Broke me out terribly and has an oily texture that reminds me of cheaper quality face creams. My skin is naturally combination/oily, but having a good skincare routine means my skin is generally clear and more normal than oily — to the point where foundation is not necessary at all. After using this cream, my skin reverted back to my high school puberty years. My face was an oil slick with tons of small pimples erupting under the surface. Annoyingly enough, my skin still felt dry and tight, even though there was a film of oil sitting on top of it. I used this cream for a week, changed nothing else on my skincare, and just couldn’t handle it anymore. As soon as I switched back to my normal daily moisturizer, things started to improve. Overall impressions, I can’t recommend this cream. I had high hopes, given all the positive reviews, but when I started to hate how my face looked in the mirror, I knew it wasn’t going to work out. I firmly believe good quality skincare should make you happy, not stressed.
So far I am really loving the Pyunkang Yul products I've tried. This moisturizer is really lightweight and hydrating and works so well with my acne prone skin. After several weeks of using this cream my skin feels more balanced and smooth. And I really appreciate that it has no fragrance or harsh ingredients.
Really great cream. I usually have a shiny T zone and it has completely balanced my skin.
I received a sample of this, and while I love other Pyunkang Yul products (essence and ampoule), this one isn't for me. I used a little bit of it one night when I ran out of my moisturizer, and it was soothing if not a little too occlusive. The day after, a couple of tiny whiteheads popped up! At least now I know not to buy the full size pot. I ended up using the rest of the sample packet on my legs, and it works great :D
It is very drying on my skin and I have been using it for almost 1 month now. I have combo sensitive skin.
Loved the texture. It has no smell. Not quite moisturizing enough for me. AZ is very dry. I have to layer under other products.
Pyunkang Yul Moisture Cream
This is my go-to face cream, pretty light but hydrating and easy to layer with all the other products I like to put on my face as I'm getting ready in the morning.
I really don't submit reviews too often, but these products are too good to talk about! I've had so many problems because of my sensitive, dry skin, but these products have made all the difference! It brings so much relief knowing I can now control all those flakey spots on my face. The Toner and Moisture Cream are amazing!!
This cream is very moisturizing, but a bit on the heavier side. I naturally have very oily skin and excessive sebum production from hormonal imbalance. I find that I don't always want to use it during the day time because it makes my skin really glossy, and almost makes it look greasy.
However, when I wear it at night, my skin wakes up very bright, plump, and hydrated. I use it as the last step in my skincare, to seal in my serums and oils, and it does a really good job of that. If you're looking for something light to hydrate under makeup and you have very oily skin, I don't think this is the cream for you. But if you're looking for something rich and moisturizing to apply before bed, I would recommend this.
I haven’t used it for a long period of time but this is what I have to say so far. I really like it! It’s not too heavy on my skin but it’s really moisturizing. I stopped using moisturizers in general and started using oils because every moisturizer I used broke me out! But this hasn’t broken me out! I’m excited to keep using this! (btw I have combination sensitive acne prone skin)
My T-zone can be an oil slick. So, I'm very hesitant with moisturizers; they just feel like more coating on my skin. But my cheeks and jawline can be the Sahara. This moisturizer was a dream. It is light enough to not feel nasty and absorbs quickly. But it works so well on my dry cheeks! Gone are the times I tried using two products. No scent. Just calms my skin into a pleasant neutral.
I was in desperate need of a moisturizer for my combination skin and this one is perfect. It takes my flakes away in my dry areas and doesn't over-moisturize my more break out prone areas. Also, a little goes a long way! It sinks right in and feels wonderful. No perfumes or overpowering scents!
Love this moisturizer!!!! My skin is super oily but it absorbs so well.
Great gel like texture, perfect for combination skin. Heavy on moisture, but not greasy or oily residue. Skin drinks it up! Love this on my sensitive skin. A perfect moisturizer for day and night!
Love it!!! I'm combo/oily and this is my second purchase of it. It's sooo good! Makes my skin so soft and supple. Really hydrates my skin. It doesn't clog my pores but gives me the hydration I need without any heaviness or greasy feeling. Just soaks right in.
Very hydrating and non greasy. Great even for my oily skin. Just love this product line. I have rosacea and have been only using this for a week it seems to have calmed the redness down a little.
As someone who usually has oily skin, this moisturizer doesn't add to the grease, it just makes it feel replenished and hydrated! Really love it
This is the first product I bought from the Pyunkang Yul line and I love it. I know that some other reviews complain that it isn't rich or heavy enough. I use a drop of marula oil on my face every morning and night, so a lighter moisturizer is perfect. It sinks in to my skin really well and I love how soft my skin feels every day. It's a lovely cream that packs a punch.
I have dry, sensitive skin. So the good thing is my skin didn't react badly to this cream.
But it also hasn't done much to hydrate my skin, which was also my problem with the toner.
Basically, it's just not doing anything.
I love how hydrant make my face feel
This is by far the most amazing thing my super sensitive skin has experienced!
This cream feels like a dupe for the Belif True Cream Aqua Bomb - which I LOVE - but is less expensive for the amount of product you get. It has a similar kind of moisture bursting sensation when applied, which is totally refreshing and calming. I selected the Moisture Cream as opposed to the Nutrient Cream after viewing the Pyunkang Yul quick guide that recommends products based on skin type, and I really love it (I have dehydrated, oily, acne-prone skin). My skin drinks it up, and sunscreen and makeup go on nicely over it. I layer this over the Pyunkang Yul Oil at night and add two drops of the oil to this during the day, and my skin has never felt softer!
I have Really skin with acne that ranges from inflammatory to cystic, and the screen has been perfect. Is not Ties me any breakouts or made my skin more oily
This moisturizer is definitely gentle, but not quite moisturizing enough for my dehydrated skin. It works well as a daytime moisturizer, but I can't use it as a night cream without layering it underneath a more occlusive moisturizer. I've also been having trouble with layering physical sunscreens on top of it. I've tried both the Elta MD UV Clear, and the Umbra Physical Daily Defense from Drunk Elephant, and both of them immediately begin to pill and separate when applied on top of this moisturizer. Suggestions? Because I love the texture and fact that it doesn't irritate my super sensitive skin!
My go-to moisturizer at the moment. Fragrance free and gentle, I appreciate how it hydrates my skin without the greasy feeling. Love!
Great moisturizing cream. not greasy at all. leaves you with a soft-touch skin when is absorbed. very excited about it
Pyunkang Yul Moisture Cream
Phunkang Yul has transformed my skin! I have extremely sensitive, reactive, oily and acne prone skin. After spending an obscene amount of money on every cleanser, toner, mask, cream, sonic brush and gadget on the market my skin is finally clear, my pores have been drastically minimized and fine lines virtually non existent! I started with the foaming cleanser and just a simple face cloth to scrub and wash off the cleanser (no crazy expensive sonic cleansing brushes needed), followed by the essence toner and moisture serum. They cleared my skin and improved texture within a week of use. I've since added in the moisture cream and essential oil and I cannot recommend this line more! Absolutely love it and the ladies, Herra and Sue for all their help!
Huge amount of product for the price. Once it dries down it's not greasy at all and definitely soothes irritated skin. I am looking for a replacement to the Whamisa Flower Cream--it is not quite as hydrating as that one, so I do need two layers in some of my dryer areas, but for the price I don't mind. I have very sensitive skin, this does not break me out or clog pores.
Pyunkang Yul Moisture Cream
This is a weird product, but patting it onto your skin does eventually evenly distribute it. For me, the feeling is very awkward and thick at first but quickly transitions into something magical and comforting. My skin is gets very inflamed and dehydrated in the summer because I run long distances in the heat and sun. I've been using a cream as an occlusive until now and didn't realize how much it wasn't working for me until I tried the balancing gel. This product cools me down, it soothes my skin and makes me feel so calm and pampered, it holds my skincare in. I use this as the last step in my skincare routine morning and night and would not trade it for anything.
I just wrote a review for the Pyunkang Yul Moisture Serum, and the packaging on both of these is not good. The product inside, however, is light, moisturizing, almost a whipped texture. No harsh smells or ingredients. This line really seems to balance the skin. Thankfully I can get to the product (unlike the Moisture Serum which is another story!) but the lid does not fit correctly and goes on in an angle and then when you try to adjust it, it just pops off. This is very frustrating and I feel as though the lid is never sealed. The Balancing Gel comes in the same jar, that lid is ill-fitting also but I can usually eventually manage to get it on. The products in the line are really nice, especially for sensitive skin.
Love love this moisturizer. My skin soaks it up. I'm going to try other products from this brand.
I have combination/oily, acne-prone skin that has been very dehydrated lately and purchased this product to increase hydration, but have found this product to be ineffective. Although this product is marketed as a moisture cream it is the the furthest thing from moisturizing. This product has left my skin tight, dry, and uncomfortable with absolutely no hydration whatsoever especially applying after cleansing or using acne treatments such as Retina-A or benzoyl peroxide. As we speak my skin looks and feels like shrink wrap and I am highly unsatisfied with the product claims, which is why I will not repurchase or recommend this product to anyone with even mildly dry skin.
Some of the greatest products I have ever used. Light yet so moisturizing. No harsh smells. My skin is very thankful.
I use this cream as a daytime cream under my sunscreen. I love the light texture of this cream. It keeps my skin hydrated all day. I also love that there's no scent. Feels clean and healthy for my skin.
Pyunkang Yul Moisture Cream
It calmed down my redness within minutes! Love how hydrating yet light weight it is. I'd definitely recommend this if you have combination skin
This cream absorbs quickly into the skin leaving almost a matte finish. I haven't had any breakouts since starting this cream and the flaky patches on my face have felt more hydrated than usual.
This a great layering product. It feels moisturizing without any greasiness. I use after several other layers... as my final cream then follow with the balancing gel. No breakouts or irritation. I find this to be balancing and soothing. I use exfoliants and retinol on a regular basis and this is a perfect addition to calm, and again, balance these strong actives. Highly recommend. I am a dermatology provider and recommend this line, and Ohlolly to patients.
This stuff is awesome! My skin drinks it in like water. It actually feels hydrating not greasy. Best of all, it has changed my makeup life. First time in years my makeup lasts all day because I am no longer a oily tzone girl!!
As this is a new product to use on my face, I can only say that I am reserving comment until I have used it longer and seen how my skin responds to it. For now, it is OK.
I deliberated for a while as to which cream I should try from Pyunkang Yul and eventually decided to get this one as opposed to the Nutrition Cream because summer is just around the corner.
While this cream is lovely and non-irritating, which is a plus for my reactive skin, it is not hydrating enough for night use, even in the summer. I managed to remedy this by adding a few drops of facial oil, but I still wake up dry at times between this cream and the balancing gel. I probably ought to have purchased the nutrition cream as this cream is meant to be balancing, and in hindsight, my skin does not produce enough oil for me to need a balancing product. As a day cream, however, this goes exceedingly well under makeup with the balancing gel.
My skin does seem markedly clearer and less troublesome, which I think is a sign that the pure ingredients in Pyunkang Yul products are proving beneficial to my skin.
The cream is quite thick but absorbs quick. It's also great at night and despite waking up a little dry, I have noticed that my face is less oily throughout the day.
I just wrote a review on the Balancing Gel and mentioned how I love to use it in conjunction with the Moisture Cream as my nighttime moisturizers. This was a tip told to me by Sue and it was a really great tip! My skin feels like velvet when I use this combo. But, on its own, the Moisture Cream is also very impressive! It's creamy, smooth, and super moisturizing all while still being lightweight. It leaves skin with a super healthy looking (slight) sheen and just feels so perfect on the skin. For reference: I have normal skin that's drier in the winter and slightly oilier in the summer. I have quickly become a fan of the Pyunkang Yul line! The products are so innovative, pure, and (most importantly) effective. I can't wait to see what the results are after long-term use!
