Press Sample (Unaffiliated Links)

Typology creates the most fetching products, and they offer an incredible sensory experience each time that I use any of their gorgeous skincare gems. From the moment that I opened Typology Antioxidant Face Moisturizer 5% Vitamin C + Lemon Water, I was struck by the heavenly lemon aroma. It lacks pungency, but is instead soft and refined. This cream is emollient, ultra-nourishing and hydrating, and it effortlessly melts into the skin leaving behind a slight veil of lemon.

This cream leaves my balanced/combination skin silky smooth, soft, supple, luminous and hydrated all day long. It is quite concentrated, therefore I recommend a less is more approach. Furthermore, this wondrous French skincare brand is cruelty-free and they are invested in eco-friendly sustainable practices.
According to Typology,

An antioxidant-rich moisturizer to fight the oxidation process and to even complexion. A daily moisturizer enriched with hydrating vegetable glycerin and vitamin C – a potent antioxidant to fight free radicals responsible for dull skin and early photo-aging.

Directions: Apply a small dab of moisturizer to clean skin each morning and evening, after your serum. Massage gently in circular movements until the cream has fully penetrated the skin.

Precautions: This antioxidant cream is suitable for all skin types. As this product contains essential oils, and Typology recommends that you do not use it while pregnant or breastfeeding, or on children under six years old. 90% naturally-derived.


Vitamin C (5%): Vitamin C neutralizes free radicals generated by sun exposure, pollution, smoking... Skin is more resistant to external aggressions responsible for its premature aging. Vitamin C also helps stimulate the production of keratinocytes, which are cells present in the epidermis that protect the skin and reinforce its elasticity. It also helps the skin receive more oxygen, leaving it visibly more toned, radiant and soft while reducing the appearance of pores. 

Lemon water: Extracted from pressed lemons, this ingredient is included for its toning and complexion-balancing benefits. Along with mandarin zest essential oil, lemon water also lends this formula its refreshing citrus scent.

Vegetable glycerin: A natural humectant, vegetable glycerin maintains long-lasting skin hydration and leaves it feeling noticeably softer and smoother.

  1. As always, another beautiful sounding skincare product from Typology. I wonder though why they used just 5% vitamin C. I don't usually bother with anything less than 20%.

    1. Agreed, as far as I can tell they could do no wrong! I have loved every product that I have tried, so far. I am not sure why they didn't opt for a higher percentage of vitamin C.

  2. This sounds like a fantastic moisturizer. straight and to the point with a beautiful scent!

    1. It really is, Claudia. All of their products are quite good, and they don't make any wild claims!

  3. This sounds great. I like citrus fragrances so I could even use this. I never like to use a lot of product so knowing I could just use a dab would be a good experience for me.

    1. It really is a wonderful moisturizer, Marcia. The citrus aroma is so appealing, and I think that you would really love it, too!
