  • Kirsty R. June 25, 2018

    It is now a little over a year since I discovered the Osea range while on business in California. I have suffered from sensitive eczema prone skin all my life and the Osea Advanced Protection Cream has helped to heal my skin and reduce the inflammation and eczema outbreaks. I am ever so grateful, I love Osea!

  • Citrine D. June 20, 2018

    The Advance Protection Cream is a product that rescues dry skin. When I travel my skin reacts to the change in the environment. However, if I bring the advanced protection cream with me, I have absolutely no issues. This is the best hydrating product I have ever tried and it will be a staple in my skin care.

  • Advanced Protection Cream

    Lori P. September 22, 2018

    This is my second order and I’m loving how it make my skin feel!

  • Day Cream

    Susan E. September 13, 2018

    Osea is my first venture into using their products. My face is changing with the weather and I needed to try some new products. The advanced face cream is impressive. It’s one of the best I’ve used and that includes La Mer. My face is very dry, sensitive and I’m trying my best to keep the wrinkles at bay!

  • Creamy white gold

    Linda C. September 07, 2018

    I think of this very rich night cream as creamy white gold. The benefit that it has to the skin is as desirable and valuable as gold. I have a recommend it. Linda Currie

  • Absolute Must!

    Kaitlin K. September 02, 2018

    Amazing!!! The most moisturizing face lotion I have ever used. My skin is very dry so I use it morning and night. Worth every penny!

  • I first tried this in

    Dana T. August 31, 2018

    I first tried this in the Hydrating and Age Defying Set. It came in such a small container BUT a little goes such a long way and lasted me almost 3 months. I’ve noticed that if I am a little too generous with my application I will have breakouts due the great moisture it puts out. I curerntly use it as my night moisturizer but have found it to be really great for any time of day when traveling or in less humid climates. My favorite OSEA product so far!

  • The only night moisturizer I want

    Natalie V. August 22, 2018

    I used to think I didn’t need to use a night moisturizer, or that they would all break me out, or make my skin greasy. This one has changed my life because it’s proven all those assumptions wrong. I put it on every night, every season, and it keeps my skin perfectly moisturized without breakouts or greasy, heavy feeling. Plus, while it can seem expensive, my first jar lasted me almost a year of daily use. Well worth the investment!

  • Love this cream for my dry skin!

    Ashley H. August 07, 2018

    Absolutely love this cream! Since I’ve been pregnant my skin has been super dry and this has helped get moisture back into my skin!!!


    Jill U. August 03, 2018

    This is my second container of cream – I am also a user of the oil and love the products.

  • Too harsh for my skin sensitive skin

    Danielle W. August 03, 2018

    My skin reacted to this product by turning red. I think its the DPHP which after some research I know is a possibility for some skin types. The reaction does go after about 30 mins. I still use it in very small amounts b/c of its nourishing ingredients (including the DPHP) and in the hopes that my skin may be able to adjust. My skin is dry and sensitive and I was really hoping that this was the product I could include in my daily skin care routine.
    Now my husband uses it and loves it. No reaction what so ever.

  • Shumei Y. July 10, 2018

    I love it now my skin feels moistureless and soft and I defianaly recomamd this product . Thank you for made those woudfull skin produc .

  • Runa B. June 28, 2018

    This stuff is so thick and creamy. A little goes a long way! I love how moisturized my skin feels without feeling greasy or heavy. My new favorite moisturizer!

  • Staci V. June 27, 2018

    Love love love this product! Is a staple for me every night before I go to bed. It is the only product that has left my skin felling soft and moisturized for more than 8 hours!

  • Barbara P. June 27, 2018

    Use this every night! Extra strength moisturizing for my skin and gives excellent results. I use Atmosphere Protection Cream during the day as the hot & dry weather of the summer months & the very cold winters in the Desert require 24 hour care.

  • Good winter moisturizer

    Rachel P. December 12, 2018

    I have normal/dry skin, and this cream is fantastic to hydrate especially in the winter. I usually add 1-2 drops of my favorite skincare essential oil, and it blends great! Although, you really don’t need to add anything, but I like to mix it up:)

  • My favorite cream!

    Stefanie W. December 12, 2018

    I live in the mountains of Vermont and when it starts getting cold up here, my sensitive skin turns into a peeling desert… gross!! This cream along with the sea vitamin boost bring my skin back to life! These are my winter essentials and worth every penny. As a side note, I had an issue where the glass bottle of sea vitamin boost arrived broken in the mail so I emailed customer support and a replacement bottle was shipped out that same day! Amazing customer service! Thank you!

  • Thick and delicious

    Wendy December 12, 2018

    I absolutely adore this moisturizer. It is thick and creamy and absorbs quickly. I highly recommend it.

  • My face loves it

    Tammie L. December 12, 2018

    I have been using this and other products from Osea for years. My skin is very sensitive and the advanced protection cream soothes and moisturizes it. I use it morning and night. I highly recommend❤️

  • Excellent

    April K. November 17, 2018

    I have repurchased this cream many times. It is bar far one of the best hydrating creams that does not aggravate my sensitive acne prone skin. I don’t think I will ever be able to live without this! I do wish there was a better way to get out of the jar, even if I wash my hands I feel as if bacteria can be transferred with each use. It of course is not enough for me to stop purchasing this jar of magic:)

  • Amazing for Reactive Skin!

    Elana O. November 13, 2018

    I have incredibly dry and sensitive skin. My skin is sensitive in the sense that it is highly reactive. Either it turns bright red, or it breaks out. I really needed a more nourishing moisturizer, especially as it gets colder, and this is the only one that has worked for me. A true savior! I use it at night, and periodically during the day if my skin feels extra dry. I found that pairing it with the Blemish Balm also makes a big difference. Thanks for creating something this beautiful!

  • Great product!

    Jacqua F. November 05, 2018

    This is a great product but note that it is very thick. I find it requires extra time between applying my moisturizer and putting on my makeup. It would be great as a night time moisturizer. I think I will buy one of OSEA’s lighter moisturizers for the morning.

  • It’s good

    Leana H. October 25, 2018

    I’ve used this on any area that may feel dry or prone to dryness and it instantly feels cool and deeply moisturized. Great overnight cream 👍. It is super pricy but a dab goes a long way hopefully it lasts me a long time.

  • Allergic reaction

    Chelsea S. October 08, 2018

    I just received this product, i love the packaging and wanted to love it! As soon as i tested it on my skin, i had an instant reaction. My whole face went red, hot and itchy. I am not sure which ingredient i am sensitive to but my skin does not agree. My hands felt super nice and soft. I love the matte feeling however i could cry that i will not be able to use.

  • Best moisturizer ever!

    Kristal B. October 02, 2018

    Love this. Will use forever.

  • Love it!

    Indrani September 24, 2018

    It’s a wonderful product . I am so much in love with it that I look forward to put it on every night.

  • Advance Protection Cream

    Chapman W. January 25, 2019

    The absolute best product out there. I have tried many and none of the others can compare.

  • Beautiful and refreshing

    Denise B. January 24, 2019

    I have recently been using your advanced protection cream, and I am delighted with the results. My skin feels hydrated, and my skin is glowing. As I get older I realize how important it is to be kind to my body and treat it with love inside and out in a natural and healthy way. Thank you Osea for creating organic, essential and exquisite products. With gratitude…

  • In love!

    S B. January 24, 2019

    After trying several all natural skin products I finally found one that works as advertised. My skin feels and looks smooth.

  • Extremely sensitive skin- broke out

    Nadia M. January 20, 2019

    I wanted to love this product SO bad. The consistency is thick which I love and need for my skin but unfortunately after putting on my face, I had a SEVERE allergic reaction which caused redness, itchiness, and burning sensation all over. I had to quickly wash off, take a bunch of antihistamine medication, and cold water to get the swelling down.

  • Awesome Hydration

    Tjk January 03, 2019

    This cream had awesome hydration effects. I was having excessive dryness and peeling, and bought the atmosphere protection cream at first. It was not enough hydration for me until I moved to the Caribbean. Then it was perfect! So anyway, this went deep, didn’t just sit on top of my skin, and really hydrated. I still have some red dry spots under my nose – but could be something more serious.

  • Hands down the best moisturizer

    Tanzim A. December 26, 2018

    This is pricey but it is worth every penny!!! Keeps me moisturized without looking shiny or oily. I use it twice a day and I have no dryness or flakiness. I no longer have any eczema on my face. And I noticed I hardly have to use a hydrating mist for a mid day pick me up.

    This changed my entire skincare line to this brand and I’m so glad I did!

  • Good moisturizing product from the Sea

    Patricia B. December 26, 2018

    I love products that are high in mineral content and this one is. I found the day cream too drying, however, so I passed that on to my husband, who has oily skin.

  • Must try texture

    Jennifer K. December 26, 2018

    I have been struggling with peri-oral dermatitis flare ups off and on for about the past 2 years. It is a constant struggle of falling in love with products then out of the blue my face looks like a broken out, red angry pealing mess with no end in sight. When I read about the Osea line I was hopeful but in no way could I have expected how great and unique this cream has been in particular; the texture is unlike any other I have tried. It is extremely creamy yet light, very hydrating and you can feel your skin breathing underneath it. It also leaves your skin with a more matte appearance than many other “luxe” creams. I appreciate this feature of the cream because it gives me more control of the overall look of the makeup I might wear on top during the day time. All in all this is a something I hope to become a staple product for me.

  • Best Moisturizer

    Helena I. December 22, 2018

    This is my favorite moisturizer by far. It’s not heavy on the skin and leaves my skin feeling soft and hydrated.

  • Osea advance protection cream

    Cynthia B. December 22, 2018

    Really love this protection cream, I have dry dry skin and this really helps moisture my skin, even gives it a dewy look and at my age of 64 love that💕

  • Great product

    Pam D. December 22, 2018

    I definately see improvement in skin quality, firmer and smoother.

  • Worth it

    Brook M. December 21, 2018

    Perfect moisture

  • Aazjng

    Theodora K. December 21, 2018

    I absolutely love this cream – it is incredible for my skin. All natural and deeply moisturizing.

  • Sensitive skin and rosacea

    Charis K. December 21, 2018

    I have rosacea and sensitive skin to begin with, then after a trip to the cold up north I came home with my whole face dry and peeling/flaking. Thankfully my shipment had arrived when I got home and within days my skin was like new- but better! I could tell it was hydrated and my spots of rosacea were already getting better! Thank goodness for this combo: ocean cleansing milk, hyaluronic serum, and advanced protection cream! It wasn’t really in the budget, but I was set on trying a natural way to clear my rosacea and not hundreds at a dermatologist for antibiotics

  • Miracle in a jar

    Christine T. December 16, 2018

    I had been using for a year along with another product. I noticed how much brighter fuller and younger my skin was looking. So now i only ise Osea Advanced protection cream morning and night.

  • Amazing

    Lisa S. September 10, 2019

    This is the Best Moisturizer I have ever used! I even put it on the backs of my hands that are always dry.
    I have recommended this product to several friends and relatives. I can’t say enough about it!!
    Actually all the products are Amazing!

  • Amazing product!

    Aly T. July 23, 2019

    I use this at night to give my skin a boost and it helps so much! I use the Atmosphere Protection Cream during the day and this at night.

  • Amazing!

    Diana E. July 21, 2019

    I am in my mid 50s. This is by far the best moisturizer I have ever used and I have used ALOT! I am very athletic and ski every weekend in the winter in VT. It keeps my skin moisturized and comfortable even on the coldest days! During the summer, I just use a smaller amount in the morning and again my skin is moisturized and comfortable! I cannot say enough good things about this product!! I use it along with the Vitamin Sea Serum! The price is high but well worth it!

  • cream piling

    Vivian W. June 11, 2019

    I am not sure if my skin is not compatible with the product or my toner is the one to blame, but it is very very easy for the cream to pile up. I use a very small amount and pat it in on my face. After applying it, the cream will pile up and if i slightly rub my face with my hand, the pilling will fall off.

    In addition, my face doesn’t feel super hydrated after I use the product. I previously use La Mer and i think the la Mer cream is just as rich but feels more hydrating on my face.

    My face also becomes a little red after applying the product.

  • Love it!

    Brenna H. June 08, 2019

    This is the most expensive moisturizer I own so I use it sparingly at night but I really like this. And I love that there is no scent to it and it soaks in and “dries” fast.

  • Excellent Face Cream

    Jacqueline P. May 05, 2019

    I absolutely love this face cream! It’s a rich, thick cream that truly moisturizes my skin. I love to use this skin during my bedtime routine and any time I feel extra dry. Love OSEA products they are simply wonderful for your skin!

  • The Ultimate Dream Cream

    Brooke May 04, 2019

    This product continues to save my skin just when I think it’s never going to bounce back from any kind of stress! Juts applying it feels like a mini spa experience. I use this year round, which is hard to do with combination skin! My favorite beauty product I’ve ever purchased.

  • Advanced cream

    Flo C. May 04, 2019

    It’s a wonderful cream, I apply very little over the undaria argan oil, day and night. It disappear very quickly if you apply just a little. It’s just great.

  • NOT for sensitive skin or those concerned with long-term aging!

    Cw February 24, 2019

    I so badly wish Osea hadn’t felt the need to put irritating lemon essential oils in this product. Not only do they make it smell inelegantly like Pledge wood cleaner, they also make this cream unusable for sensitive-skinned individuals whose skin lights up the minute such an aggressive oil touches it. I have to say, however, that I’m glad my skin has this reaction; scientific studies show that fragrance (natural or not) and essential oils, especially citrus oils, are sensitizing in the long run even if they are tolerated initially. Inflammatory response=aging, the opposite of what most of us want. If Osea would remove this harmful citrus oil, which serves literally no therapeutic purpose, this would be a marvelously well-formulated cream with great actives.

  • Best Moisturizer For Dry Skin

    Ashley H. February 23, 2019

    If your skin is dryer than average, get this instead of the atmosphere protection cream; especially in the winter. Very little goes a long way, so this will last you months.

  • Like it

    Laura B. February 14, 2019

    A thick moisturizer that absorbs quickly and not greasy.

  • Advanced Protection Cream and Essential hydrating Oil

    Lynne K. February 14, 2019

    I’ve been using the APC now for about a month. My skin was so dry when I moved from near the ocean to an inland area. Some places on the skin were just parched. The cream is wonderful and my skin is soft again 🙂 But I have to say something about the wonderful ‘gift’ I rec’d with my shipment. The EHO – I’m in love with it and want a huge bottle. The softness and smell are intoxicating. Love, love, this product

  • OSEA advanced protection cream

    Doreen W. February 11, 2019

    I do like the cream it feels nice on my skin, however I was hoping for some appearance difference in my lines and wrinkles. Have not seen any difference as of yet.

  • Good so far

    Stephanie February 03, 2019

    My one complaint is I wish it was in a pump so I could get the right amount and not have to stick my finger in the jar! It’s definitely a thick cream…I have sensitive skin but am also acne prone so I always struggle with whether to go with the blemish-clearing option or the sensitive option. So far not noticing a major increase in breakouts but will see how that goes over time.

  • Beautiful

    Nicole Q. January 25, 2019

    Love love love this stuff!!!

  • AMAZING... but pricey

    Alli April 17, 2020

    I had received a mini one of these for my birthday and I had loved it. And when I ran out I decided to go and purchase a full-size. When I saw the price of this I was shocked. I had loved everything that this moisturizer had done for me so I decided that I would purchase it I love this product and it’ll probably last me a year but it is very pricey. But other than that I love it.

  • Have been using for over 10 years

    Jane April 03, 2020

    I have been using OSEA products since my introduction at a Spa in Dana Point, California for over 10 years. I am 63 and people guess that I am in my early 50’s at most. I am constantly asked what I do to keep looking youthful and how my skin looks so healthy- even other estheticians I may visit. I swear by their products 10000%. This cream is fabulous, it feels good, it makes my facial skin soft and luminous and I know I am doing a great job with pure natural products. I highly recommend this cream to anyone who cares about their skin, the products they use on themselves and what this company stands behind.

  • Best Clean Moisturizer Out There!

    Erin April 02, 2020

    I recently did an overhaul of my skincare products and wanted to switch to a clean brand. I have dry skin and use this moisturizer twice a day. Even a small amount keeps my face soft, moisturized, and glowing! I’ve been using it for about 8 months now and it will continue to be a staple in my skincare routine.

  • Thirst quenched

    Alicia March 24, 2020

    My dry, sensitive skin has been quenched by this advanced protection cream! I use it at night before bed and my skin soaks up the moisture so that when I wake up, I am replenished for the day ahead 🧖I have a different routine in the morning, but this cream will now be my night time staple! ♥️

  • a must have

    Miiko March 05, 2020

    I use this twice a day and it has given my face an amazing glow, very moisturized.

  • Amazing!

    Alyssa H. February 01, 2020

    I’m hooked on the advanced protection cream! I live in the Midwest and winters are usually not kind to my skin at all. This is the first winter that I’ve yet to have any dry skin on my face. I’ve seen my esthetician every 4-6 weeks on the dot for the past three years and, when I went in last time she couldn’t believe my skin was this moisturized,because usually it’s peeling and super dry during the winter. I’ve tried multiple skincare brands and they’d work for awhile but then stop. I’ve used OSEA for almost two years now and it’s just making my skin look better and better as time goes by. High recommend this product and all others from this brand!

  • Cures my winter dry skin

    Megan C. December 21, 2019

    I picked this up because I was having extreme dry skin since moving to the pacific north west. It has definitely helped, and I not longer have the dryness after cleanser and toning! Very moisturizing, I can still feel it on the skin the next time I cleanse my face!

  • Excellent product!

    Susan P. December 12, 2019

    I use the Advanced protection cream as a moisturizer under my liquid foundation and as a night cream. The coverage is smooth, with a wonderful texture. My skin feels and looks very hydrated. I highly recommend this cream!

  • Hydration on 100!!

    Vanessa November 28, 2019

    Love the way this amazing cream feels on the skin, absorbs quickly leaving the skin feeling its absolute softest. Definitely keeping this in my routine for the upcoming cold weather these next few months!! (Especially for my trip to Canada in the next two weeks.

  • Hydrated all day

    Alicia November 14, 2019

    this is my favorite cream I have ever used. A little goes a long way and my skin feels hydrated all day… even in the dry winter months.

  • Creamy

    Wendie September 22, 2019

    For as thick and moisturizing as this cream is, my skin drinks it up. No greasy residue.

  • Great product

    Rachel August 23, 2020

    Lovely texture, nice light smell, and really moisturizing! Silky smooth and you don’t need too much.

  • Don't recommend for younger skin

    Jackie August 17, 2020

    I love Osea products and use them for most of my skincare, but this product was a miss for me. I think it’s just too thick/sticky for younger skin. I used it for multiple months to give it a fair try, but it made my skin red so I think it was just not right for me. If you have younger or thicker skin, the other moisturizer is great 🙂

  • Protective

    Sue M. August 10, 2020

    When I put this on I know I’m licking in the moisture. I use at night love this.

  • Good product but maybe not so for humid climates

    Avery July 26, 2020

    I have dry skin and i got the trial size of the cream.
    It moisturises well but it leaves a sticky residue on my skin.
    To be fair, i think it would have worked well for drier climates or in winter days but i stay where it is summer and humid all year long, maybe not so for humid climates.

  • This product saved my skin

    Abbie June 23, 2020

    Over the last 2 years my normally combination skin became excessively dry, irritated, and showed signs of rosacea. It was red and irritated all the time. I tried so many products, even ones made for rosacea. Everything stung when applied, everything made it worse. I could barely wear make up or sunscreen because of this. After 2 weeks of using this cream it is night and day how different my skin looks. It doesn’t sting, cause redness, or irritation. My skin feels hydrated, plump, and healthy. The redness has disappeared!

  • Best natural moisturizer ever

    Leslie June 21, 2020

    In my quest for all natural beauty products, OSEA has been the best of all I have tried. I have sensitive, dry, aging skin and love the outdoors–recipe for multiple skin problems. The advanced protection cream is the best moisturizer I’ve used. Though I always use it with the Hyaluronic Sea Serum, so I’m not sure which product does the heavy lifting. The skin texture on my face, neck and décolleté have improved and the redness that I experienced on my face has disappeared and my skin is much softer. The Advanced Protection Cream doesn’t feel greasy at all. it is thicker than most moisturizers I’ve used but feels lovely and a little goes a long way–though I love it so much I tend to slather it on. Had been hesitant about ordering the cream because it seemed most of the reviews were from younger people so I worried it wouldn’t be “heavy duty” enough but I’m impressed!

  • Best Mosturizer!

    Nexeida June 18, 2020

    I love this cream , I used twice a day and you only need a little bit , it leaves the skin soft and absorbs very fast !
    I love all the Osea products !
    I have used other creams but by far this cream is the best !

  • Cured a mystery skin ailment I’ve had for 10+ years in 3 days

    Jessie June 01, 2020

    This product is literally a godsend. I’ve had a skin issue with my face literally since 2010. I saw 6 dermatologists over the decade and got six different diagnoses, including eczema, adult acne, various types of dermatitis, some mystery pore fungus, food sensitivities, hormonal imbalances, rosacea, etc.

    Every treatment I was given would work moderately enough at the beginning that I would get hopeful and without fail, it would get used to the products and I would break out again in this itchy, miserable, ugly rash. I had given up hope and shifted my focus solely to managing it when I decided to splurge on this moisturizer.

    In three days, my face was the clearest it had been since my early 20s when my skin was as bright as my future. I couldn’t believe it. I was hopeful, but the real test was going to be the week before my period when I would naturally get flare ups (probably a combination of hormones and eating dairy in ice cream and chocolate).

    Here I am, day 1 of my period, and my skin is STILL just as clear.

    I’ve had two cystic pimples in the mean time, but even the spot treatment worked faster than normal thanks to the baseline of care from this moisturizer. Literally nothing else in my routine or eating habits has changed, so I KNOW it’s this.

    Now that my skin is back to looking lush (and hadn’t itched AT ALL since I started using this), I think I can safely diagnose myself with DRY AF SKIN.

    This moisturizer is so thick, it feels like you’re spreading Elmer’s glue on your face. But when I say IT WORKS, please believe me. This is literally the best product I’ve ever bought. Like I would literally buy stock in this company.

    If you’re at your wits end with your dry skin, try this. You won’t regret it.

  • Amazing

    Lbiannie June 01, 2020

    The moisture cream is my absolute favorite. My skin immediately feels and looks well nourished after applying. Love how all the OSEA products are derived!

  • Great cream

    Kelly D. May 21, 2020

    I love so many Osea products, including this cream. I use it at night and wake up with plump, soft skin. Thank you!!

  • Best skincare avsilable. I love it.

    Aiyanna W. April 27, 2020

    I have several priducts from OSEA. They are the real deal. The oil is amazing. The cleansers actually clean you face without drying. I don’t even purchase over the counter creams. OSEA is it for me. It may seem expensive but it lasts so long you really get you moneys worth.. You will not be disappointed! I love, love, love the products.

  • Amazing moisturizer!

    Keicha April 19, 2020

    I have been on a clean product journey and I love this cream. In the last 2 years, I have had severe rosacea that causes redness, bumps, and dryness. The rest of my skin is oily. This cream provides the moisture needed for both! It is higher in price, but a little goes a very long way. 100% recommend this product.

  • Dear Lord.... where have you been all my life!

    Helen April 18, 2020

    I rarely review but couldn’t help myself with the product!

    I have tried lots of moisturizers over the years (I’m not alone) – I am 24, have been dealing with acne for 10 years and I have oily/combination skin. About 9 months ago, I (thankfully) switched to OSEA and found that I LOVE all their products – I own and regularly use about 10 (I swear it is not has daunting as it sounds)!

    This moisturizer is one of my FAVORITE products ever! I didn’t realize that my skin was not moisturized enough until I tried this – I remember being shocked at how AMAZING my skin felt afterwords! It is thick but somehow absorbs BEAUTIFULLY into your skin! It leaves it feeling PLUMP, HEALTHY and legit MOISTURIZED to the max! You don’t need much, I use about a pea sized amount — I know what your thinking, NO ONE uses just a pea sized amount of a product no matter what the instructions say or what the reviews say. But you my friend, will be pleasantly surprised when you find your normal sized amount is too much for your face to absorb and you have to spread it down your neck, over your chest and up your arms (this may be based on a true story…. and I may have started to panic…).

    But this is seriously the PERFECT moisturizer – I feel the immediate effect and throughout the day, my skin is more and more hydrated as the day progresses (which is just odd). It NEVER feels like it is sitting on my face, it really does absorb right into your skin – and don’t worry, there is NO “shiny” effect afterwords or the slick feeling on your face. I definitely recommend damping your skin first (I dampen my skin before all my serums and moisturizers – it helps your products better absorb into the skin), although I am sure it works just as well on dry skin – your preference.

    This does NOT clog my pores at all and have NEVER broke me out – I have very picky, sensitive and temperamental skin, but it LOVES this moisturizer. You may be wary because it’s very thick, but don’t – your skin will suck it right up. Heck, I didn’t even realized that my skin was not fully hydrated and moisturized beforehand, it didn’t feel dry. But when I tried this, I realized that my skin needed more love. So even if you don’t think your skin is dry, it may still be and could really benefit from the extra boost! My skin has actually gotten WAY less oily since using this – it looks hydrated at the end of the day, even with wearing makeup. I use it day and night, but maybe you just want to use it in your night-time routine – totally up to you!

    This jar also lasts a LONG time – I started using mine in September and I still have a couple weeks left of the product and it is mid April! This makes the price much more affordable because you are not needing to buy a new one every 3 months.

    I HIGHLY recommend this product! I know you are doing your due diligence and religiously reading a couple (dozen) reviews, but let me ease your mind -stop overthinking it and just do it. You will be happy you did!!

  • Like Velvet

    Louise December 02, 2020

    This cream feels like velvet and keeps my skin supple and moisturized for a beautiful, non-greasy glow.

  • Magic

    Claire December 01, 2020

    This luxury cream lives up to the hype. It smooths, plumps, minimizes lines and is pretty much magic.

  • Your sensitive skin will thank you

    Anna December 01, 2020

    So I was very on the fence about this product when I first purchased it, because the price is definitely a deterrent and quite intimidating. Like, “drop the cash and find out I don’t like it? That’s a risky investment.” But here I am on my second round of this stuff, and I haven’t found a comparable product, or something I like better. This stuff is like putting marshmallow clouds on your skin and sweetly giving yourself a goodnight self-care kiss. This has become a big part of my self-care routine, and I’m really happy with this stuff. To be honest, I went through my last container more quickly than I thought I would, but a little definitely goes a long way and I’ve started to use it a little more sparingly the second time around. I like to put just a tiny bit around my eyes at night and on my neck, because those are pretty sensitive areas on my face. I even have some dry Eczema spots on my eyes that this stuff is super helpful with and does wonders for (doesn’t cause any flare ups or itching and is really soothing). I’ve got the most sensitive and reactive skin, and if I put this stuff on my entire face, it doesn’t cause any burning or redness or inflammation at all. It just soothes. Seriously feel like this stuff has been very healing for my skincare needs, and I Deeply appreciate that There aren’t any added scents or ingredients that don’t need to be there. If you’re on the fence, Maybe try this in a lil’ sample size first, and then go for the big one if you like it. If there was a smaller size, I’d honestly probably still get the big one because this stuff IS worth it and it’ll last you a long time if you’re not globing it on (again a little goes a long way). You’re definitely paying for quality and healthy ingredients and if you have sensitive skin like me, I recommend this product for sure.

  • Mature skin

    Yvette October 28, 2020

    I love the feel of this cream . I use at night locks the moisture in . Not greasy .

  • Best moisturizer I have ever used!

    Dayna K. October 13, 2020

    This moisturizer is the absolute best! I have rosacea and really sensitive skin so I have tried every hydrating moisturizer out there and this has worked the best for me by far. I genuinely get excited every time I put it on because of how calming and hydrated it makes my skin feel. Worth every penny and it lasts a long time too!

  • Very hydrating

    Amanda K. October 08, 2020

    So far so good. Just been using a few weeks at night and I really like the texture and how it absorbs. Feels very nice on the skin and so far I like the product and I can see it will last a long time as a little bit goes a long way. I do notice that my neck and chest area looks nicer so don’t for get to use it there! I will purchase again.

  • The Most Incredible Moisturizer ✨

    Sarah J. October 03, 2020

    I very rarely write reviews on products but I am in love with this product. I have tried countless cruelty-free vegan brands. I’m 30 years old and have been using this product for over a year now. The advanced protection cream has revolutionized my chronic combination oily and dry skin. T zone is no longer oily and I have zero dry patches or flaky skin. I’ve also noticed that’s it’s taken away some of those fine lines and wrinkles. A little bit of this product goes a long way and lasts for around 3 months for me, using only at night. I truly cannot say enough good things about this product. I LOVE AND WILL RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT TO ANY AND EVERYONE! It is magic ✨

  • Amazing

    Wendi September 25, 2020

    I was actually worried about using this cream because I was scared it would be too heavy and would make me break out. I started using it at night and loved it so much, I actually even started using it during the day too. I was using the atmosphere protection cream which I loved, but love this even more! I use almost all Osea exclusively and it has 100% cleared up my skin.

  • Great product!

    Alyse September 17, 2020

    I love this moisturizer! My skin feels smooth and hydrated.

  • Surprisingly Wonderful

    Shae September 14, 2020

    I was skeptical of this cream because of the steep price tag. Also since I’m 28, I didn’t know if it was too early to incorporate an anti-aging cream like this. But I’m very impressed with this moisturizer, it’s so luxurious and thick. Absorbs into the skin beautifully! Like other reviewers have said, a little goes a LONG WAY. I used this cream at night and the atmosphere protection cream during the daytime. Both moisturizers are equally amazing but this one serves as a great night cream.

  • The only moisturizer I ever use

    Molly D. August 25, 2020

    I absolutely love this moisturizer, I’ve been using it for the last few years since my skin has become a bit drier yet still sensitive. I’ve tried a few other moisturizers but nothing compares to this one. I tend to have reddish skin along with sensitivity and within a minute or two of applying it, the redness is gone and my skin is much smoother. I’ll never use anything else. Thank you, Osea!

  • Game changer!

    Chelsea February 25, 2021

    All the Osea product are amazing but with my ridiculously dry skin this really provides the hydration I need. Now all my skincare is Osea!!

  • Advanced cream

    Marie February 18, 2021

    I’ve been using this cream for over 3 months and am impressed at how little I need to use to cover my face and neck. I put a dot on my cheeks, forehead and chin and one on my neck. I then spread it gently with my fingers. I use this with my skin care routine of vitamin sea mist, eye serum, eye cream, hyaluronic serum, whitening serum, advanced protection cream, and finish with vitamin sea serum. On my neck I use vitamin sea mist, hyaluronic serum, advanced protection cream then finish with vitamin sea serum. The Advanced protection cream does a great job of moisturizing and is not greasy. It absorbs well.

  • Amazing moisturizer

    Kerry February 18, 2021

    I prefer organic naturally scented skin care. Osea has become my favorite skin care line. This cream is rich, faintly scented and keeps my skin supple and healthy

  • Luxury in a bottle

    Carla February 17, 2021

    My favorite facial cream. Feels amazing yet not too thick just perfect! Thanks Ósea

  • Very Good

    Juliana February 17, 2021

    It is very nourishing and rich, however for my skin maybe too rich as my skin got a bit oily, so I have to be careful with it. Instead of use twice a day I only use before bed and is fine!

  • My face no longer feels painfully dry

    Lilly February 17, 2021

    Previous to trying OSEA, I was using a generic cleaner, toner, and moisturizer… only to find out that they contained fragrances and other ingredients that had been doing nothing good for my breakouts and dry skin combo (the worst of both worlds, lol). This might sound stupid, but when I first tried the samples, the first thought that ran through my head was “my face feels like a face again.”

    I *know* it’s expensive, and for certain you can moisturize perfectly well with the Atmosphere Protection cream, but I have very sensitive skin on top of living in a dry and cold climate. The Advanced Protection cream is an absolute must for me during winter; my general approach is to use the advanced during cold season (which for me is almost half of the year!) and regular throughout the rest of the year. I very much recommend it to anyone who is debating between the two.

  • LOVE, love, love

    Geena January 28, 2021

    I absolutely love this face cream. I have very sensitive skin and I can slather this baby on with no worries. It’s light but still covers really well and lasts all day. It’s not greasy. Such amazing and clean ingredients. What I love the most – this tub lasts quite awhile so you really get what you pay for. DEFINITELY BUY!!

  • New go to cream

    Lizzie S. January 09, 2021

    I love the Advanced Protection Cream!!! I have recently switched over to Osea products after only using another similar brand. Osea has really won me over. This face cream is luxurious and has very much improved my dry winter skin. I use it over my serum and wake up very pleased with my skin. I’m hooked.

  • Best Products EVER

    Jocelyn December 31, 2020

    You name the face product, and I’ve tried it. Finally, at 43 years old I found OSEA (thanks to What’s Gaby Cooking!). My skin has never looked or felt cleaner! No blemishes, reduced redness, super soft. My favorite is the Ocean Mud Cleanser followed by the Under Eye Firming Cream and Hyaluronic Serum. My skin feels like it gets a big drink of water after each use. Couldn’t recommend OSEA more!

  • A-maxing moisturizer!

    Mimi December 24, 2020

    I love to use this moisturizer at night. It’s extra rich and think! In the morning my face feels super smooth and soft. Live it!


    Jacqueline S. December 22, 2020

    This is my favorite moisturizer. Paired with the Hyaluronic Sea Serum, I saw immediate improvement in my skin!

  • Must have!

    Kay December 13, 2020

    I love this cream! As a So Cal resident, I HAVE TO HAVE this to keep my skin moisturized all day.

  • Favorite moisturizer

    Victoria December 07, 2020

    This is an extremely hydrating moisturizer. It takes some work to rub in completely, but it feels great and keeps my skin feeling hydrated all day. Will definitely repurchase.

  • Great for dry sensitive skin!

    Chloe July 23, 2021

    This cream is so rich and moisturizing. It has completely transformed my dry skin. Unfortunately it made me break out quite a bit at first. But I realized I was just using too much. Now I just dab a q tip in the jar ( about half the size of a pea) And it’s more than enough to cover my whole face. That’s how rich this cream is!! It gives my skin a nice healthy glow the next morning. The formulation seems to be safe for most skin types. The ingredients are top notch. They really know what they’re doing!!

  • Pleasantly surprised

    Morgan June 08, 2021

    A highly effective product. A little goes a loooooong way. A small daub easily covers my whole face. I feel
    It locks in the moisture at the end of my skincare routine. My face feels soft but not oily the whole day. I’m glad I tried it out!

  • So luxurious

    Teri May 20, 2021

    This is the best moisturizer I have ever used. I have dry skin, and I’ve tried so many products that left me disappointed. My skin loves this stuff. It’s pricy, but worth it. And you are worth investing money into. ♥️

  • Great moisturizer!

    Shawna T. May 13, 2021

    This is really a great moisturizer! I have very dry and sensitive skin and live in a very dry climate, so I rarely find skin care products that are moisturizing enough but also don’t cause me to break out. This one does the trick! It feels sort of thick when putting it on, but then just melts into my skin. I use morning and evening.

  • Perfect moisturizing cream

    Lindsay April 26, 2021

    This has been the best cream moisturizer for my skin. A little bit goes a long way it feels so luxurious on your skin. I have very sensitive eczema prone skin and this does a wonderful job of locking in hydration.

  • My fave

    Nicole Q. March 26, 2021

    This has been my go to for many years. It is moisturizing and feels so luxurious on my face. I use it at night mostly which really sets in the moisture.

  • Best moisturiser I’ve tried

    Angela March 25, 2021

    I’ve had skin issues such as dry/ oily skin, acne, sunburns, unexplained flaky patches for a 20+ years now. This is the only moisturiser I’ve found (I’ve tried most, all mainstream products for sure) that works wonders for my skin.

    Noticeable difference after the first day of use, and keeps improving my skin overall. I apply the vitamin mist & sea serum first, and then apply the protective cream. A little goes a long with with this product.

    I sincerely wish every company cared about their products as much as Osea. Using this product along with their other products has visually improved my overall skin health, confidence, and they’re just so luxurious feeling. Highly recommend this product and anything else you can afford for skin troubles.

  • Super hydration your

    Rebeca March 24, 2021

    This is a SUPER moisturizer which its pure ingredients channel hydration healing onto my skin. You will feel the difference from the first application. I love it sooooo much that I use it on my face, hands, décolleté, and arms before bed. My fourteen year old is using it too and can’t stop raving how soft her skin feels and that is doesn’t cause skin break outs! If it can make a difference for my 50 year old skin and turn back time on my face, dry hands and arms caused by hormonal changes and make a difference on my fourteen year old daughters youthful skin. This is a SUPER hydrating moisturizer that my daughter and I won’t be without!!

  • Fantastic !

    Pearl February 10, 2021

    Love this cream, especially for winter. It feels thick going on and locks in moisture. The smell is subtle but wonderful, its awesome ! I have very sensitive and very dry skin. This works wonders for me.

  • Didn't live up to the hype

    Diane F. December 30, 2020

    I really like OSEA products, but this cream did not address the winter doldrums like I thought it would. The texture and absorption are good, but the level of hydration and glow have not been all that exceptional. I’ve used it as my night cream through the fall and winter months.

  • Great winter moisturizer!

    Jacqueline M. February 09, 2020

    I have rather oily skin in the summer but during the winter my face is incredibly dry. This moisturizer was recommended to me by an associate in the Beacon Hill store and I LOVE it. Even though it feels thick and dense to the touch, it is goes on super smooth, feels light weight and does not feel oily. My biggest pet peeve is oily products, so this one is perfect! Highly recommend for the cold winter months!

  • Amazing feel

    Heidi A. October 05, 2019

    I have very sensitive skin and was nervous to try such a heavy lotion, but I love it! I have been using it for 2 months without a breakout. It feels wonderful on and really creates a barrier to the environment.

  • Love Osea!

    Erica August 20, 2019

    Fantastic moisturizer. It goes on feeling a little heavy but almost instantly disappears. My face is left feeling supple and looks well hydrated.

  • La Mer

    Mary C. July 12, 2019

    Best natural night cream I have ever used.

  • Worth the $ best moisturizer ever!

    Raleigh H. February 04, 2019

    If you have dry skin look no further, this is the best cream out there! I always end up with dry patches on my face during winter months and this cream has finally put a stop to that. Well worth the price because the jar lasts a long time, highly recommend.

  • Holding up this winter

    Stacey L. January 11, 2019

    My skin is usually flakey and dull during the winter but so far so good since switching to this cream. This is a fabulous moisturizer but I’m not sure of its anti-aging capabilities yet. Haven’t really seen a difference there. But if you have dry skin, I highly recommend! (Just stick with your serums too.)

  • Not a good fit for my sensitive skin

    Angela S. January 08, 2019

    My skin did not agree with something in this product. I had tried a sample size from the company before and it seemed to be fine. But after about three days of using this, my skin was broken out in small raised red bumps. I stopped using it for a few days and it cleared up. I gave it one more try, but again within a few days my face was covered in a rash. Still have the entire jar because I don’t have a receipt and by now I’m sure too much time has passed.

  • Amazing moisturizer for dry skin

    Lauren B. October 31, 2018

    I love this moisturizer! It is so rich and nourishing. I have dry skin and this is my go to winter moisturizer. Absorbs quickly into the skin and never clogs my pores. If you have dry skin but still battle breakouts, this moisturizer is for you.

  • feels wonderful - doesn't deliver

    Jennifer M. October 08, 2018

    This, by far, is the most rich and luxurious feeling facial cream I’ve ever used. After first applying, it makes my skin feel incredible. However, that’s the only benefit I’ve found since using the cream for the last month. With a price tag of nearly $100, it should deliver far more.

  • Perfect night cream

    M. October 07, 2018

    I have combo/oily skin and use this cream every night before bed. My skin feels like heaven in the morning and the product absorbs very quickly for how moisturizing it is. As a recovered la mer addict, this has been the absolute best clean replacement. I actually prefer this cream and it’s much more affordable!

  • wonderful product

    Robynne K. May 21, 2018

    I love the creaminess of this as well as the full saturation. My face still feels soft in the morning.

  • My personal Holy Grail

    Tania P. April 11, 2018

    This is my IT cream. Perfect for my sensitive, combo skin, especially in winter. The perfect amount of moisture!

  • Fantastic Moisture and Line Softening

    Diana E. March 26, 2018

    I absolutely love this product!!! It is very luxurious and extremely moisturizing! It does a great job of softening wrinkles and lines around the mouth, as well as improving overall radiance!! Definitely my favorite face cream!!!!

  • Great Moisturizer

    Alex C. January 21, 2018

    I bought this moisturizer for the dry winter months and it has been exceptionally dry this winter. I use this moisturizer only at night on top of a face oil. A little goes a long a way. It is very reach and extremely moisturizing without being greasy or oily. I do use a lot of other oils, serums, and moisturizers on my face depending on the day and the time of day, so I can’t speak to the specific anti-aging benefits of this product, but I do really like it for it intense moisturizing benefits. I would buy again.
