I'm now on my 3rd bottle of this stuff and I could tell you that it has done wonders on my eczema prone skin. I have really bad eczema on my hair line and this moisturizer kept my face moisturized the entire day; some other one's I've tried I found I had to re-apply around halfway. I wasn't a fan of the scent at first but I got used to it and now I kinda of like it. I use another Aesop cream during summer as I learnt first hand that if you sweat (plus the cream), and it accidentally goes to your eyes, it stings. This is a heavy cream as well so I recommend for winter only!

Very good quality but too heavy!
I find this one works particularly well but it's frustratingly heavy on the skin which I find to be a bit much. It's definitely worth trying though.
beautiful cream!This is my favourite face cream from aesop. It smells so so beautiful, I get lavender from it and it's moisturizing and makes my skin look and feel great
A good & thick moisture for combined dry skinIt is suitable for me in winter cause I am combined dry. although it feels thick, it can be absorbed quickly and hydrate. I would recommend if you have the combined dry skin, otherwise it may be too oily or less hydrate.
But it does not contain SPF, so I do not use it now.
Great winter moisturiserI'm now on my 3rd bottle of this stuff and I could tell you that it has done wonders on my eczema prone skin.

I wasn't a fan of the scent at first but I got used to it and now I kinda of like it.

Also great on the neck and décolletageI bought this on a whim at the start of a frosty Tasmanian winter, and for a few weeks it staved off the dryness that the cold sometimes brings on. I loved the lavender scent, but after a little while my skin balanced out again, and this became too rich for me, but at the same time left my skin feeling a little irritated.
I was about to pass this onto my mother, when I realised it would be perfect for my neck and décolletage, which has started aging a bit as I creep up to my thirties. I'm also a side sleeper, and have started forming pesky chest lines from that, as well as accruing some sun damage in that area. This moisturizer has really helped to make my décolletage look youthful again! I apply it straight out of the shower, and it is thick and rich enough that that area feels soft and hydrated all day without becoming greasy.
Light and hydratingVery light and Hydrating sinks straight in I think this product would be ideal for warmer months as it’s not quite rich enough for my skin in winter. It goes a long way, so just a little is all you need my face feels very silky after.
very genlteFabulous value for 80 grams, you only need asmall amount, and the product goes a long way, so just a little is all you need. I like this one at night, as it quite rich for my skin which gets a little oily during the day, but love a richer, hydrating cream at night cream.
Luxury in a bottleAesop products all smell sensational including this one. Didnt find this product moisturising enough in winter but i have super combo/dry skin in winter. Great as a daily, but use with other products for hydration and moisture.
smells like lavenderI love the smell of this cream, it smells like lavender to me. I have combination skin and use this in winter when my skin feels more dry.
Aesop Never FailsAesop is a brilliant brand of skin care products .. I have been buying their facial creams for a while now. Being an older person I can become sensitive to some products never with Aesop.. This product is beautiful and I mix the moisturizer's .. usually have two on the go at a time.. alternating from day to day.
Great everyday moisturiserI’ve been using this for years now and it’s my staple everyday moisturiser. Not too thick or too thin and not greasy at all. Soaks in to my skin nicely and can feel my skin is hydrated afterwards.
Good winter moisturiserA hydrating winter moisturiser. Smells divine. Quite thick but sinks in well after a few minutes. Skin feels dewy the next morning.
Best cream!this is my go to aesop face cream, smells really good a little does go a long way so you dont need to use that much! thick cream!
HydratingI love this moisturiser, have been using it for years! I generally only use it at night as the last step in my routine, as it's really hydrating, but it's absorbed into my skin quite quickly leaving it super soft - plus it smells incredible!
Very good quality but too heavy!I find this one works particularly well but it's frustratingly heavy on the skin which I find to be a bit much. It's definitely worth trying though.
hydrating creamThis cream is great for my skin as I tend to have dry skin, especially in the winter. Would recommend to anyone with dry skin, it's very hydrating.
Not the best for sensitive skinI love all Aesop products but this did not sit well on my sensitive skin. I think the scent was quite overpowering also.
Exceptionally hydrating!Love this one! The packing can get difficult when you get towards the bottom of the jar but also great as it is sturdy.. doesn't leak!
A dependable favouriteThis is a dependable favourite that I always find myself going back to. I get beautiful hints of lavender from this cream. It's light and great as a day moisturiser for my combination skin
best smelling cream!This is my favourite face cream from aesop. It smells so so beautiful, I get lavender from it and it's moisturizing and makes my skin look and feel great
Best product in their rangeThis hydrating face cream is lovely. It completely replenishes my skin and makes it feel incredibly soft and smooth. It is also a great sized pot.
Soft and SoothingI received a sample of this and it is perfect for my dry sensitive skin. The consistency is quite thick and it feels very nourishing on the skin. The scent is beautiful and I feel good that I'm hydrating my skin with natural ingredients.
Certainly the best Face Cream in the Aesop rangeThe best face cream in the Aesop range it's ultra moisturising and works well on sensitive skin. I highly recommend it. Well worth the investment.
GreatI find this product really good. I use it every morning and night. After I applied it in the evening，I always found my skin feels moisturing next morning and I'm fond of its smell which makes me think of the herbs .
HydratingThis is a very hydrating cream that makes my skin feel so soft.
LuxeLove this cream, my skin feels moist and soft after I put this on every time!
Lovely face creamThis hydrating face cream is lovely. It completely replenishes my skin and makes it feel incredibly soft and smooth. It is also a great sized pot.
AESOP PRIMROSE FACIAL HYDRATING CREAMI absolutely love the lavender scent and richness of the cream. My skin is very dry and seems to drink it right in.
Beautiful scentI get beautiful hints of lavender from this cream. It's light and great as a day moisturizer for my combination skin
great product... time for new packaging!!lovely soothing product. great moisteriser for winter.
time for new packaging. everyone knows anti-oxidents exposed to air ruins them.
the packaging is not hygenic.
Winter saviourA really beautiful nourishing moisturiser without the greasiness or weight
An affordable luxury for the every dayIt looks as though you won't get much, but a little goes a long way! A heavenly delight in the every day - it smells divine and works great on my sensitive skin!
greatIt might look like you don't get much for your money but a little goes a long way, if you use it as the label says. Smells divine and is great if you have sensitive skin.
Smells of RelaxationI have normal to dry skin and love applying this in the evening along with my Aesop Fabulous Face Oil. It is extremely hydrating and smells like you've just been at the spa. Heavenly!
Really hydratingi really love this face cream i use it every night! its very hydrating and doesnt cause break outs! also aesop bottles are so cute when your finished with the product keep them and be creative!
Overall worth the money!
Love itI really liked the "plumpness' and glow that i get from this moisturiser. It also smells lovely. Seeing as I have really dry patches, I am not sure whether it would be moisurising enough for winter months, but for now it does a great job
10/10I received a sample of this product with a recent order and oh boy, it is very luxe. My skin is combination/oily and when I use this at night, it sinks in quicky, deeply hydrates and nourishes the skin without being thick/cluggy or too heavy for my skin type. Smells a dream, definitely recommend this!
Lovely cream needs a spoon!There’s no doubting the ingredients and texture of this cream are lovely, the scent is subtle and my face loves the big drink it gives it at the end of the day- I do feel though that it would benefit with an applicator spoon or in a pump bottle as the 120ml bottle feels a bit old and not as ‘fresh’ on the face after dipping my fingers in the jar for so long and perhaps affects the active ingredients
In love with this productLove, love, love. I received a 50ml from the Aesop birthday and have just finished my first 120ml bottle. Its super hydrating without feeling too smothering and is a lovely light smell. I also mix it with a bit of the Damascan Rose Facial Treatment if I feel like a bit of extra hydration. I could not recommend this product enough.
One of my favouritesThis is one of my favourite creams from Aesop and i love this product because of the lovely light scent and the effects it has on my skin. I would highly recommend this for any skin type especially for dry skin.
I think I’ve found the one!I love this cream. I have acne-prone skin that’s also prone to surface dehydration as I’m getting older. My skin often gets congested with more ‘natural’ skincare, yet I like to use skincare that’s closer to nature when possible. This moisturiser hasn’t broken me out, and leaves my skin hydrated and dewy. I mix it with a zinc-based sunscreen for daily use and extra moisture and also use it at night. Love the lavender smell (not overpowering). Non-greasy and just lovely!
Lovely productNice and hydrating, great as a night cream. Smells great and doesnt irritate my sensitive skin!
Rich and creamyI love rose products and this cream is very thick and hydrating. Can be a little too much for oily skin but good if you have dry skin.
Quite richReceived as a sample and was a little too rich for my combination/break out prone skin. Didn't absorb to well and left me the bad kind of shiny. I think its more for dry/combo skin and ill stick to their mandarin facial cream which works well for me. Smells beautiful and natural like all Aesop products do.
Lovely as a night creamI have combination skin and this is a bit too rich to be used as a day cream but I love using it at night. The scent is really nice and though it's a bit richer than other aesop creams I've tried, it still doesn't feel too heavy on the skin.
beautiful scentreally lovely scent but the cream isn't moisturizing enough for my dry skin
MoisturizingReally nice day cream that is moisturizing and has a lovely scent. Absorbs quickly as well
HydratingThis is my favourite facial cream from aesop. The primrose scent is lovely and the cream is nice and hydrating
Love!Recently become a huge fan of Aesop products and this face cream is one reason why. It's light, moisturizes well and the scent is beautiful
fantasticI find this product really good. I use it every morning and night. After I applied it in the evening，I always found my skin feels moisturizing next morning and I'm fond of its smell which makes me think of the herbs .
Non irritating and absorbs quickly. Doesn’t cause breakouts.I have sensitive dehydrated skin with occasional breakouts. I love this moisturizer because it doesn’t irritate my skin and absorbs quickly without leaving any oily residue.
lovely!Got this product as a free sample, and I loved it! It tingles when you put it on, which feels nice and the smell is amazing! My skin is really soft when I wipe it off and I feel refreshed and clean
My go to night cream.This is rich and cream and smells divine! I have oily acne prone skin and this calms it down and hydrates it. As its a little more on the heaver side I use this for night time. Love it- on my 3rd bottle.
Great as a night creamI have combination oily skin and I have been using this as a night cream. It is very hydrating and so it wouldn't suit my skin for daytime use (plus it doesn't contain any SPF). It is especially good during winter when my skin gets dry and hypersensitive. I love the scent and I think it is good value considering the jar is 120ml.
Pretty expensive but totally worth itI love this stuff so much!
A staple skin care productI cannot give this moisteriser up. It’s such good value (120mls for $70!) and is so soothing on my skin. I use so many products with active ingredients these days , this is the perfect product to give my skin a break from it all and soothe it. My one complaint is the packaging... unhygienic! A tube or pump pack would be so much better!
Extremely hydrating, smells incredible and lasts forever!I bought this size moisturiser over a year ago, use every other night and I still have half a bottle left, which makes up for it being a bit pricey. A little goes a really long was as it is so hydrating and thick. I also find the scent very beautiful.
The perfect night moisturiser for winter!
Super hydrating night creamAs always, Aesop has delivered an effective and beautifully scented product. This moisturizer is really nourishing for my combination skin and as such I only use it as night.
I wake up with gloriously supple skin and have noticed my pigmentation has gone down.
Favourite winter moisturiserI've got normal to dry skin, and I was after a well-balanced natural moisturiser that would keep my skin supple during dry winters. I found this moisturiser to be perfect, not too rich and not too lightweight. Superbo! 10/10! Smells heavenly too :)
Just Right MoisturizerI used it as a night cream for my dry skin. Rich enough to moisturize my skin at night. Not too oily and smells great! My skin feels moisturized and hydrated until the next morning. I love it especially during winter.
Great productUsed three kinds of moisturizers from Aesop. Primrose is the most suitable one for my combination skin. It's not too thick, not too light. Provide skin enough hydration during the day. I use it day and night during winter. In summer, I only use it as night cream.
Heaven scentI love Aesop and this is one if my favourites. I switched to this moisturiser from the parsley seed for winter. It smells heavenly and goes on with a lovely consistency that's not heavy or greasy.
High quality AesopI usually use Aesop's Mandarin moisturiser, but decided to try the Primrose Hydrating Cream for the winter weather.
It's light, non-greasy and hydrates perfectly, just what you'd expect from an Aesop product.
Highly recommended for those with normal to dry skin.
Perfect little luxuryA winter skin saviour! Aesop Primrose Facial Hydrating Cream is rich, smooth and the perfect texture. It leaves no oily residue or greasy feel.
The smell is absolutely divine - I hate their mandarin-scented products (eg. Resurrection) so this soft, calming lavender aroma is a very welcome change!
In winter my skin tends towards very dehydrated thanks to heating, blustery weather and everything in between. I use Primrose Facial Hydrating Cream after my Vitamin B serum and this combination is proof that miracles do happen! I awake with soft, plump, hydrated skin. Probably would switch to a lighter cream in summer months, however this is a must in cooler climates or for those with dry or sensitive skin.
Nice Product with Great ValueI really like this, it makes me feel hydrated in the winter and it doesn't cost a lot! Great Value!
Super Happy!I have sensitive congested skin and some creams make it worse but this cream adds moisture without clogging my pores.
I use this at night after using my serum and it's so moisturising and sinks into the skin quickly and doesn't leave a greasy residue. The scent takes a while to get use to but now the smell helps me sleep as it has lavender in it.
I love the packaging!
Love it!This cream is everything it says it is. Perfect on my dry skin. Great value as it s 120mls, love it!!
love the product...not the price!OMG love love love this cream! Received this as a free sample and while I love adore for sending it I also hate adore for sending it. Now that I've seen how much it is I know its out of my price range :'( anyway cost aside this cream feels silky smooth, rich and ultra hydrating. Perfect for the colder weather as I tend to get very dry and my skin can feelvery tight. Smell reminds me of my nanna but in a good way!
Very pleasedSmooth as satin, delicious smell, just want to keep putting it on.........
best hydrating cream i have ever used.I have used many hydrating creams for my dry skin, but over the years my skin has needed more. I have always been an advocate for natural vitamin rich creams but aesop is the only one that actually delivers what my skin needs. My skin hasn't felt or looked this good for a long time. Only a small amount is required so with this in mind it is great value. I love using this cream and its scent is soothing. Thank you aesop.
Amazingly good!I absolutely love this cream. My skin has never felt better! It is beautifully hydrating and gave my skin a nice plump and glowing look. I would thoroughly recommend this.
- I received this as a sample in my last Adore Beauty order and got three days use from it. At first I thought perhaps it would be a bit too rich for my skin, but my goodness, I was so wrong! I have normal-dry skin and this is perfect for winter. I think it may be my next HG! I used it as a day moisturiser, and under makeup it is amazing, everything sits beautifully on top of it and blends better than it's ever done. My LM secret concealer works even better with this underneath. Will definitely purchase once I run out of my current moisturiser. It lost a couple of stars on presentation because jar packaging is not good for the stability of ingredients like vitamin C.
- This is a really beautiful moisturiser for normal to dry skin. It feels rich but sinks in and isn't greasy. Smells divine too. The jar is enormous and lasts ages. Can be used morning or night.
- This cream was exactly what my skin needed coming into winter. My skin was starting to get really dry and using this as a night cream has really made my skin stay hydrated through the cold weather. I love that it is easily absorbed into my skin and the lavender fragrance makes it perfect to use before bed. All up a fab product.
- This is a lovely cream but was a bit too rich for my skin. Those with combo/slightly oily skins, try it at night time instead.
