The Inkey list Peptide moisturizer: Affordable and excellent?

The Inkey List Peptide moisturizer has piqued my interest for some time now. The prices are unbeatable and this company among a few others have set the precedent that good skincare doesn’t need to cost hundreds of dollars. We’ll be reviewing The Inkey List peptide moisturizer today.

The first product I bought from them was their Retinol serum as it’s regarded as the best beginner’s retinol. From there, I went on and bought The Inkey List Peptide moisturizer and 15% Vitamin C + EGF serum. In fact, I’m still using the latter one so, will be reviewing that a bit later. 

However, I finished the Peptide moisturizer, and, in all honesty, I loved it. 


Rating: 4.5 out of 5.





The Inkey List surely knows what they are doing with their opaque tubes and airless pump jars. This type of packaging is the absolute best as you don’t have to dip your fingers or back of the nails in jars. It helps prevent transfer of bacteria from your hands into the product. 


Rich, creamy texture. I would say it would work best for a combination to dry skin. Keeping in mind skin changes with seasons so if you have drier skin in the winters, this moisturizer will work wonders.

The INKEY List Peptide Moisturizer ingredients list


According to The Inkey List website, this contains their trademarked peptide complex called 2% Royal Epigen P5™. Apart from that it contains glycerin and that too, quite high on the list. It’s an excellent moisturizing agent which to be honest, I love more than hyaluronic acid. Besides glycerin, it also contains shea butter which is an amazing emollient. In other words, it leads to softer, smoother skin. Click here to read more about what are emollients.


  • Excellent hydrating moisturizer
  • Great price point
  • Absorbs nicely into the skin
  • Layers quite well under sunscreen
  • A slight issue I faced was that it initially feels thick on a hot humid day, although that sensation subsides after it has had time to soak in.
