    As I started to age, my skin has recently been changing to being oily all over to now combination with my forehead and outer areas being dry. This does not make me feel greasy nor do I have that tight feeling that I sometimes get from gel moisturizers. So far, I’m in love.

  2. Michelle, Entrepreneur

    I got my glow back
    I really liked the glow this moisturizer gave me. It is very light absorbed very well into my skin. Initially it feels a little sticky but that goes away. Most importantly, it really breathed life into my skin. I’m going to purchase it again!
    Skin Type: dry and dull

  3. Jenny

    Amazing in all seasons
    I’ve been using this moisturizer consistently for over a year, and this is the only moisturizer that I have used that consistently keeps my face hydrated and acne at bay. Now that I am working from home, the moisturizer still holds up against the increased dryness.

    My Hero!
    I received this product as a birthday gift and I absolutely love it! I have combo skin and it keeps my face noticeably hydrated all day. Will purchase the next one as I would like to continue using it.

  5. Linh, Consultant & Mother

    Very hydrating and makes your skin feel plump and soft when you wake up in the morning. I have sensitive skin and the smell is not overwhelming.

  6. Katie

    A real hero!
    I love this moisturizer hero! It’s lightweight, super hydrating and it leaves my skin glowing. I have dry skin, and it helps me tackle some dry cheeks. It glides nicely under my makeup!

  7. Emma

    I love this lotion, so much so that I’m on my third container and I now have my sister using it too. The scent reminds me of nature.
    This gel cream is so..light! No issues wearing makeup over this lotion. No irritation or breakouts from this product either. It is the perfect amount of moisturization to wear year round.
    Bonus fact: this lotion is water-based and contains Niacinamide so it helps my dark spots…you’re welcome.

    This my new go to! I just like how it feels when I apply it and how my skin looks after using it for a couple of weeks. I was so impressed!

  9. Mai

    This moisturizer makes my skin feel indescribable! the moment i put it on, it feels so luxurious. my skin stays hydrated and nourished!!

  10. Chris

    Best Day Cream I’ve Found.
    I’ve tried a lot of different dry creams that make my face feel truly hydrated, and this one is by far my favorite. I love the light, luxurious texture, and the cream goes on smooth and sinks in quickly. Even in the depths of the dry and air conditioned office, this product keeps my skin feeling hydrated and great. It works well under my sunscreen. Highly recommend!

  11. Lizzie

    Definitely Recommended!!
    I love everything about this moisturizer. The scent and the texture. It’s very hydrating so you’ll only need to apply a little each time but I also started applying it on my neck and chest. The natural scent is soft and not overpowering. It’s texture applies very easily. I use it after my toner and serum and am just in love how my skin looks and feels.

  12. Thao

    Very hydrating and makes your skin feel plump and soft when you wake up in the morning. I have sensitive skin and the smell is not overwhelming.

  13. Anonymous

    I love this moisturizer. I have terrible acne prone skin and most moisturizers cause breakouts for me, but not this one. My skin is oily so a very little bit of this goes a long way for me and it absorbs great without making my skin feel greasy or heavy. I also like the smell, it’s very natural and not overpowering.

  14. Anonymous

    Light, made my skin feel softer, firmer and just so natural and nice!

  15. Sandy

    I found a winner! My go to moisturizer. I’ve been using Clinique for years but since I can’t travel and buy from Duty Free I tried this. It’s so good for my sensitive skin and makes skin look healthy but not greasy. It’s not heavy cream so it’s best used after serum if you have drier skin.

  16. Kiran, Mother of three and Researcher in Health & Safety

    I love Hydrating Hero. It makes my skin look less dull. My skin has a glow (brighter) plus I like the light texture. Skin Type: combination

  17. Liz, Skin type: combination and sensitive skin

    My absolute favorite! I am obsessed with this! Super hydrating and sensitive on my skin!

  18. Kate, Skin type: combination

    This gel cream is my new favorite. I highly recommend this for daily use. It moisturizes your face all day and night. I received this complimentary product along with the cleanser and together these products work great. I highly recommend you try this cream.

  19. Chi, Skin Type: Dry

    I’m loving the Hydrating Hero. I use it every morning and night. When my skin feels drier, I apply my serum before hand. It’s light and it just glides on. Loving it!

  20. Huong, Skin type: Normal

    The texture of this moisturizer is light and airy. However, it does take a while to absorb onto my skin and creates pilling when I add sunscreen on top of it if I don’t allow it to dry. I would use this with my facial massage as the texture is smooth. Overall, it was ok.

  21. Thi

    Very hydrating. Super soft on the skin! After one month I notice the difference and I getting compliments so you feel like you’re getting your moneys worth!

  22. Serina, Mother, business owner and skincare obsessed

    This is the perfect summer moisturizer for my combo and hormonal acne prone skin. I wear it for my final skincare step at night and love that it’s hydrating and fully absorbs into my skin. It doesn’t irritate my skin at all.

  23. Eunji, Beauty Lover

    This product has changed my skin care game. This leaves my face moisturized without over doing it and clogging my pours! Love this product.

  24. Hieu, Skin type: combination

    This moisturizer is great and a little goes a long way for my T-zone. I do need to apply more around my cheeks as it’s much more dry. My face feels and looks healthier. It’s more than what I usually spend and I so wish it wasn’t so expensive but it was worth it. I am going to keep an eye out for sales to buy more.

  25. Stacey, Mother, High school teacher, K-beauty lover

    Even for oily skin!
    Gets me to want to use moisturizer on my oily skin
    I have extremely oily skin (meaning that my skin literally never feels dry) and I love that upon dabbing this moisturizer into your skin, it basically absorbs right into the skin without leaving an overly-emollient residue. (it also has a very slight refreshing, cooling feel) Moisturizing is a must, of course, even for people with oily skin, so I’ve always erred on the conservative side when using most other moisturizers because many are just too rich for my oily acne-prone skin.

  26. Anna, Skin type: combination

    Love this moisturizer! I first tried it when I stayed at my friend’s place and after using it night and morning, I decided to get one myself. I was a bit bummed that it didn’t already contain SPF for the day but I know I need to apply sunscreen afterwards. That being said, I have had a lot of compliments on my skin after I started using it. I love it, it goes on my skin nicely and it’s very moisturizing.

  27. Jenn Skin Type: dry and sensitive skin

    Love it! A must have!
    My favourite, not sure why I was trying a new moisturizer especially because I have sensitive skin but it’s helping my skin.

  28. Stephanie A.

    I’m obsessed with this moisturizer. It is so light feeling, hydrating and the smell reminds me of nature in a jar.. I am acne prone and I’ve noticed no new breakouts which is a big plus. I just ordered my 2nd jar of this moisturizer.

    Overall, in love with the texture and how it feels when I apply it on my skin. My skin does feel softer and brighter. So happy I was introduced by my sister.

  30. Marion V., Entrepreneur and Earth lover, Skin Type: Combination

    the best moisturizer ever!!
    THE BEST MOISTURIZER. Seriously if you have combination skin or sensitive skin you will love this. I have tried everything for my skin that looked dry, flaky and tired looking and this is the only moisturizer that never broke me out and helped my skin look hydrated. I don’t think I’ll ever change. It’s worth the money. TRUST ME with this one. Life changing moisturizer!

  31. Linh Le

    Hydrating Hero saved my skin from feeling dry and looking dull from stress of COVID-19, family and work. This cream added moisture and made my skin brighter again. One of my favourite moisturizer in a very long time.

  32. Vi Thanh

    I like how Hydrating Hero feels on my skin (I think is normal skin). I noticed the difference as my skin felt more moisture and softness (maybe my skin more dry than normal). The only thing I have a problem is that I felt it took a little longer to absorb.

  33. Hang Nguyen

    Nice light cream! It has a great smooth feeling, scent is not too bad and most importantly, I like how my skin feels in the morning.

  34. Sarah Kim

    This cream just melts on your skin without leaving a thick layer on your face. My face feels so fresh and smooth all day. My foundation also goes on very smoothly after I put on the cream, maybe because my skin absorbs it so nicely? Either way, LOVE!

  35. Justina-Christina

    My skin type is combination and therefore I find it quite challenging to find a good moisturizer- I never thought to try a gel cream but since I am a huge fan of Soul Story’s cleanser, I figured I would give the moisturizer a try. I’m hooked! The gel cream was just the right amount of hydration for my dry spots (cheeks and around my mouth) but it didn’t make my T-Zone oily.

  36. Van Bich

    Hands down one of best moisturizer I have ever purchased. Even my husband with combination skin loves it! We are now on our 2nd one! I don’t typically share my cosmetics with my husband but we are both noticing the difference on our skin.

  37. Lê Tony

    I love that it’s light-weight, moisturizing, non-greasy and non-sticky even when you are not using air conditioning. The skin feels soft, elastic and much stronger than before. Clearly, I will be using this for the long-term.

  38. Joy T. Shoe Designer, Entrepreneur, and Barista

    Soul Story…I wanna order more of Hydrating Hero!
    This is one of a few creams I can use till the last drop. LOL!
    I love how it feels on my skin!

  39. Jennifer D., Veterinarian

    Red Ginseng.. I never tried anything with this ingredient before so I worried that it wouldn’t smell good but it was light and fresh. My boyfriend also uses it since he likes how it feels and smells.

  40. Teana Konstanz

    Since using Soul Story products, I don’t need to use as much makeup. I actually got stopped by a stranger in the supermarket the other day to comment on how nice my skin is! I highly recommend the whole line, especially the Hydrating Hero.

  41. Sam S., Creative Marketing Coordinator

    Smells great and looks so pretty on my make-up table 🙂 The only thing is, there is no SPF so you have to make sure to put on sunscreen after this product.
