Using gel based or oil free moisturizers has been a game changer for my oily acne prone skin. I have tried many gel based moisturizers and my love for them is never ending. After trying out Plum Oil Free Moisturizer I hopped onto trying The Earth Rhythm one. Let us check Earth Rhythm Phyto Clear Oil Free Moisturizer Review.
Centella Asiatica contains “Madecassoside” that boosts antioxidant activity at the site of wounds, strengthening the skin and increasing blood circulation. It also has been shown to have a rich source of amino acids, and is a good hydrating ingredient to soothe upset or compromised skin. Horsetail Extract has antioxidant benefits for anti-ageing, and the anti-inflammatory benefits for acne and irritation. It can help heal rashes, burns and wounds thanks to its antibacterial and antimicrobial properties. Sage extract enriched for ursolic acid clinically reduces skin sensitivity to irritants and lightens the appearance of facial hyperpigmentary spots.

Packaging, Texture and Fragrance
The packaging is classy with lime green colour glass bottle with a plastic pump up dispenser. The dispenser has another small cap to prevent it from leaking or accidental pumping. The glass bottle does feel a little heavy but nothing that can be tucked away in your vanity bag. However, the cap is little lose and may come off. The product texture is gel cream kind with no oiliness. The product is fragrance free and has very different kind of feels on terms of fragrance. It doesn’t smell raw or anything.

My experience with Earth Rhythm Phyto Clear Oil Free Moisturizer
The moisturizer has a different kind of consistency that is gel in cream texture with zero oiliness and stickiness. Earth Rhythm Phyto Clear Oil Free Moisturizer is an oil free formulation which gives it an advantage while using beneath a sunscreen or makeup. The product although in gel cream texture gets applied like a gel on the face. One needs a little bit of massaging to let the product sink in.
Even if you use extra quantity you will not feel any watery thing sitting on your skin. I sometimes use it as sleeping mask in night time routine and my skin just drinks it up all. The best part about the product is fragrance free and oil free formulation which will help it in being suitable for oily sensitive skin type too.
I have never used the moisturizer beneath any sunscreen so I won’t be able to tell whether it is suitable or not to wear under a sunscreen. However, one should wait till thr moisturizer sinks into the skin before applying sunscreen so that the sunscreen doesn’t pile up. I haven’t noticed any increase in white heads because as is the sunscreen is oil free. But it neither reduces them. In case of Plum Green Tea Oil free moisturizer I have noticed the white heads actually reducing in size, whereas with Earth Rhythm they remain the same.
Overall speaking I like the Earth Rhythm Phyto Clear Oil Free Moisturizer for daily use and as a change in gel based moisturizers. Other skin types can easily use it underneath a sunscreen for a hydrating effect. I keep on alternating between the Plum Oil Free Moisturizer and this one. Compared to Plum this moisturizer is little pricey and doesn’t reduce white heads too. Instead of repurchasing this one I would like to get Plum one or Earth Rhythm Ceramide moisturizer. No doubt the Earth Rhythm Phyto Clear Oil Free Moisturizer is a good one although I don’t like to splurge the amount on it.
Earth Rhythm Phyto Clear Oil Free Moisturizer Review
I like the fact that the moisturizer is oil free and fragrance free. It makes the skin soft and smooth without any greasy residue. Oily acne prone skin can easily use this as a regular moisturizer as well as a sleeping mask at night. The best part is that even after applying excess amount it doesn’t feel watery or just sit on the skin. Price wise it is a little bit more than regular ones however the brand usually has buy 1 get 1 offers and discounts which will enable to save some money. I might or might not repurchase this one due to price.
