    My Holy Grail Moisturizer

    FINALLY a truly moisturizing moisturizer that is lightweight enough for my oily skin AND works perfectly under my makeup. Plus it calms my redness and any irritation. I use it morning and night during the summer, and for day in the winter. A little goes a long way too. I cannot be without it.

    Favorite so far

    When I started using Renée Rouleau products I did not have a moisturizer in my routine. I Hate the way they felt on my face I have tried handfuls of other moisturizers and they felt heavy or filmy to me and made my upper lip sweat 😓. I am very particularly of what I put on my face, because I am so picky about it I went a long time with no moisturizer till I tried this one. It's super light which I love! It's feels like it absorbs into the skin, my skin just drinks it up with no film left behind its great! I'm a skin type 3. I use this product very generously! My skin is still a work in progress and Renée Rouleau skin care products are my stable in my routine!

    Lovely Lotion

    Another great product from Renee Rouleau. It's moisturizing without being heavy or greasy.

    Even though Type 3 skin types can be oily (hi, t-zone!), it's still important to use a moisturizer.

    FWIW, I live in the Midwest, so our winters are very cold and dry. I find this moisturizer is still enough during those winter months.

    Perfect moisturizer!

    I absolutely love this product! I hate using any kind of moisturizer because they all seem to cause more oil production in my oily areas and do not fully moisturize my dry, irritated areas. This works in all areas! It lightly moisturizes my t-zone, and my dry irritated areas are completely soft without any flaking. I hardly ever have to reapply and do not get excessive oil in my t-zone. I use it daily and it is great under my makeup!

    Works and Lasts!

    Love this lotion; it has never made me break out and I am super sensitive! I use it at night, sometimes in the morning (recently started using Renee's Vitamin C Cream so I use her SPF lotion with that in the morning). This bottle - like all the products, actually - lasts so much longer than you might expect. I probably only need to purchase 2x/year. The Skin Recovery Lotion is just the best.
