Texture and skin type

The texture is amazing and perfect for summers. The texture is very light weight non greasy that the skin absorbs completely. It is fragrance free and really helps to repair any dry patches from within. To some extent it has helped introducing pigmentation also.

The texture and ingredients match with Dr. Reddys moisturizer for dry to very dry skin, so this is an alternative which saves the cost. Dot & Key Barrier Repair Ceramides & Hyaluronic Hydrating Face Cream makes my skin hydrated and does not strip it off of its natural oils either. This is one of those creams that you can use for slugging and for the sandwhich method with actives like glycolic acid.

My skin never burns when I layer it with this before applying glycolic acid or any other active ingredients. Its prescribed for dry to very dry skin but it works so well on my combination (mostly oily) skin. I use it as a night cream and it repairs my skin barrier very well. My skin feels more hydrated than ever and my patchy skin gets evenly textured.

My Honest Experience on Dot & Key Barrier Repair Ceramides & Hyaluronic Hydrating Face Cream

First of all, I have dry/Combination Skin Type. Honestly i was so confused while ordering this moisturizer as it claims that it is meant for dry skin people but but when I applied this moisturizer on my face, my dry skin absorbed this moisturizer very quickly and made my face so soft and non oily.

This Dot and Key Moisturizer is bliss for dry skin. I am in so love with it. It is very light weighted and gets absorbed into the skin very quickly. It perfectly repairs skin barrier and provides deep hydration. It is also providing intense moisturization. It soothes irritation and redness. My skin became so clear, plump and hydrated. It is genuinely fragrance free & so light weight like a butter. After application it does not feel heavy on the skin.

I purchased this moisturiser after watching at a lot of Insta reels and reading its reviews. It costed me Rs.336 and it has 100 gms of product which is great. The cream is super hydrating and layer it above my Hyaluronic acid and Niacinamide serum. The product is fragrance free and not greasy at all. My skin type is dry and i think i found the perfect moisturiser which I have been looking for years.

The packaging is pretty aesthetic too. Even people with oily skin have used this and told me it’s really good. It wears really well even in hot humid weather and goes beautifully under makeup. Helps with reducing the open pores on the skin as well.

I can honestly say this, as l have used many high end brands to soothe my skin-barrier after I wrecked it by applying harsh chemical peel. This Dot and Key Moisturizer is unbearably brilliant. You might sweat a bit, but that is cool by me. The product itself is like magic, I have not touched my bioderma baume, cicabio creme or cetaphil for a month now and I am doing better actually. If this Dot and Key Moisturizer keeps working like this, I will never buy any expensive moisturiser and will save bucks for sure.
