It depends on the needs of your skin, gorgeous! If you have normal to dry skin, total moisture facial cream will keep you hydrated since it is a more concentrated cream. Triple performing facial emulsion is best for hydrating normal to combination skin. If you don't want to wear a heavier cream during the day, we recommend applying triple performing facial emulsion in the morning to get that lightweight feeling and SPF protection and apply total moisture facial cream at night before you go to bed! xoxo, B

REVIEWS & QUESTIONS
Is this more of a night cream? I was told by a Ulta sales girl that the total moisture is to use at night and the moisturizer with spf is for the day. I love the one I bought for day and would love to try this one at night. Not sure if its needed?
Is this product oil free?
This product could make your face oily if you use too much. This is a very rich & creamy texture thus a very little can take you a long way and gives you the right amount of moisture you need.
Hi gorgeous! Total moisture facial cream does not contain oil ingredients. xoxo, B
Can I use this product while pregnant?
Hey hot mama, all our cosmetics and skincare products are perfectly safe to use while pregnant…but just to be super cautious, we recommend waiting until after your baby is born to use Benefit body products. We hear you’re glowing anyway. xoxo, B
Is the Total Moisture Facial Cream free of animal derived ingredients? I would like yo know if there are any ingredients in the Total Moisture Facial Cream that are animal derived. What source is Glycerin and other ingredients.
Hi gorgeous! Our experts have confirmed that total moisture facial cream contains lanolin, which is an animal-derived ingredient. Xoxo, B
Is it paraben-free?
Total Moisture Facial Cream, refined finish facial polish and foamingly clean facial wash do not contain Parabens.
Will it irritate my skin? I've gone through numerous face cream from high end to low brand names, and I got a sample of this face cream and like all the others it worked. But this cream I feel it's a lot more different where even a little amount helps my dryness (from acne pills and cream). Mostly my creams have been fragrance free and natural. I guess my question mostly is since I only had a sample size will the fragrance and other ingredients react to my skin (from previous experience: rashes and chemical burn) before I buy a whole container. I really like it and what it does for my face, I guess I'm just a little bit nervous.
If you were happy with the sample the full size should work the same way ( you should have reacted with the sample if you were allergic) The fragrance of this cream is mild and quite pleasant.
Benefit products are not developed specifically on sensitive skin. If you are interested in any of the products Benefit offers, please take the ingredient listing from the product of choice to your dermatologist to determine if a product is suitable for your skin type. Additionally, you can try a ‘self’ patch test on a small section of skin by applying the product onto the inside of one elbow and leaving it on for 24 hours. If an adverse reaction occurs, wash area thoroughly and discontinue use of the product.
does this cream have spf?
Sorry, Gorgeous! Total Moisture does not contain spf. If you're looking for SPF protection, I'd recommend trying our Triple Performing Facial Emulsion. You can view it on our site at http://www.benefitcosmetics.com/product/view/triple-performing-facial-emulsion
hydra concentrated v sheer oil-free i have samples of both of these products and they're fabulous! i'm 50 with dry-ish skin. my question is: is one of these better suited to day use and one to night use? if so, which one? many thanks and regards
Total Moisture is great for dry skin, and can be used morning and/or night. It doesn't include sun protection, so I'd recommend using our Triple Performing Facial Emulsion during the day.
How much do you apply each day to keep your face moisturized? How much of this moisturizer would I need to apply each day to keep my face moisturized, in the dry California weather?
Not very much! Just a dip of your finger into the jar, and dab it onto the places that need it most, then rub onto your whole face. A little goes a very long way, and it will keep you moisturized all day.
That's really for you to discover since everybody has different skin needs! However, if your skin is combination (meaning you may get more oily on other parts of your face than others), I would just use it on the parts of your face that tend to feel a bit tight and dry during the day. If you have dry skin, then I would apply all over but not too much as this product is very thick and may not absorb fully, leaving your face looking greasy. If you have oily skin you may not need this product but, regardless the skin type, I recommend using a thin layer after cleansing before you go to sleep, to give your skin a chance to rejuvenate itself. I suggest doing some "trial days" perhaps on the weekend to observe your skin's behavior and reapply if needed. *Whether you use this cream during the day or not at all, it is VERY important to wear SPF everyday, especially in the sunny state of California! Good Luck! :)
About the size of a pea, is more then enough.
Not that much, this product is really moisturizing and a little goes a long way! I have a little sample that came in a skincare set that I got and it has lasted me 5 weeks. Plus, I HAD (no longer have to say have haha) dry spots on my nose and cheeks and this moisturizer made them vanish!
It could depend on : 1. Your skin type and what it really needs as far as moisture is concerned. 2. How dry California weather actually is. Regarding the first topic, if your skin is dry, using Total Moisture by day and by night, in terms of beauty routine, would be enough. If it is combination, you could try using Triple Performing by day and a chickpea (as a moisturizer, it is very rich) of Total Moisture by night, and if it is oily, I'd recommend Triple Performing by day and by night. If you feel some dryness during the day, whatever your skin type may be, because of the second topic, you could always try sprinkling some ultra radiance all over your face.
Everyone's different. Just start out with a pea sized amount, and add more if necessary.
Triple performing facial emulsion or total moisture? I have dry skin - really dry in the winter - and quite sensitive skin. Would you recommend total moisture or the triple performing facial emulsion?
I have dry and VERY sensitive skin but this product is great, doesn't irritate or cause any redness - I would recommend.
I would definitely recommend total moisture! I have really dry skin as well and this is a product from the gods! When I started using this my dry skin quickly went away and when I ran out it came back so you SERIOUSLY have to get this. It is also worth the price and a little goes a long way too! I got a lil sample in a skincare set and it lasted me 5 weeks so I am thinking the larger one will last like 3-4 months depending on how much you apply but like I said you don't need to use much for your face. The Triple Performing Facial Emulsion is really moisturizing as well. I usually dab a lil of this on after I have applied the Total Moisture when I wake up. It is pretty moisturizing as well but tends to have a tiny bit of stickiness to it but I think that is due to the spf in it, but other than that I really liked it. Hope this helped you!
Yes! i have tried both of these products and they are winners! they are super moisturising and make my skin feel amazing, however if you have sensitive skin it might be a good idea to check the ingredients list to see if there is anything that would irritate your skin. For me this product feels great on my skin and i have not had any irritations.
Combination skin yes or no?
I have combination skin and find that this cream works well for me.
Yes! My skin is a combo of all skin types, and this solves all my problems! Especially combined with porefessional, seriously I couldn't go without the two.
I have combination skin ranging from oily and dry to normal and dry depending on the season, but I use this cream and it works great! However, I would only use this in the parts of your face that are dry because it will look a bit greasy on oily skin. I view this as more of a heavy moisturizer so I use it mainly at night time or if my skin is really dry and flakey. During the day, I use a lighter moisturizer with SPF. :)
YES I have the same skin type and add getting older. But always happy with it.
I have combination skin, but what I do is use Triple Performing by day and leave Total Moisture for the night, applying less amount of it. Hope this helps!
Say good-bye to dry skin and hello to "total moisture." This facial cream provides concentrated immediate & long-term hydration for a radiantly refreshed complexion. Our exclusive tri-radiance complex helps develop the skin's reserves of water & reinforce skin's moisture barrier. Contains mango butter, a natural plant-based emollient known to provide moisture. For normal to dry skin.
Is this product non-comedogenic?
Hi, form my experience with this product it has not blocked my pores or caused any acne i have to worsen, generally from my experience if you have problems with your skin a non-comedogenic moisturiser will neither help nor make the problem worse, i do find it very moisturising so if you have very very oily skin you may not like it. i dont know if its non-comedogenic but this is just my experience with it.
It doesn't block my pores and makes them less visable. I would recommend it if you have clogged pores. I had these for years, after using this after one day they were gone!
While I can't decipher the ingredient list into what would make it occlusive, from my own point of view, Total Moisture facial cream is extremely light, and extremely non-greasy. As a thought, I think of comedogenic products like butters, vaseline etc - so heavy stuff that sits on your skin. Total Moisture cream couldn't be further from that! Much more like a lotion, but with the added benefit of a dewy, glowing look! Sorry I couldn't give you a more conclusive answer!
Benefit does not test for or claim that our products are hypo-allergenic (least likely to cause an allergic reaction) or non-comedogenic (does not cause pimples & blackheads). If you have a specific allergy, please review the ingredients on the product page online to determine if a product is suitable for your skin.
Oily skin: Yes or No? I have an oily/combination skin, so does this cream make my skin oilier? Because it isn't oil-free after all.
If you have this moisturizer, use it at night, and remember not to apply too much of it.
I have oily skin too. It has worked well for me.
I have VERY dry skin so I can't be 100% sure but it does not feel greasy or like it would make you oilier at all. Its just a very rich moisturizer.
Total Moisture is oil-free and is best for normal to dry skin. You may want to try our SPF15 PA++ Triple Performing facial emulsion. It's lighter and oil-free.
Is this a day cream? The seller at macys said it was a night cream, but Im not sure...
I use it after I wash my face in the morning and I find that it leaves me nice and moisturized for the day. It does awesome things for my skin. I wash my face, use this, then put on my makeup.
Not at all. I am using it day and night for my dry skin.
"Total Moisture" works best as a night cream, because it replenishes skin's natural moisture overnight and helps skin recharge so it looks radiant in the morning. As a day moisturizer, I would use another product from the same line: "Triple Performing Facial Emulsion SPF 15" after cleansing with "Foamingly Clean Facial Wash." The combination of using all three of these products will give you the moisture your skin needs to recharge at night, and the glow, light hydration and SPF it needs during the day. I hope this helps you! :)
It can be used for either or... i like it as a day cream if your incredibly dry, the mango butter in it is awesome. else wise i do prefer it as a night cream or again if your skin is really dry put it on as a face mask and let it soak in for about 5 minutes then wipe off the access.
