What is non-negotiable in my skincare routine apart from a sunscreen? A moisturizer, of course! When used correctly, moisturizers can be potent anti-aging products. They can make your skin soft, supple, and elastic and delay the signs of aging. One moisturizer that is perfect on all these fronts is the Vya Naturals Peptide Moisturizer. This moisturizer contains some beautiful ingredients to protect your skin barrier and to repair your skin. After emptying two bottles of this product, here is my full review.

The Formula Of The Vya Naturals Peptide Moisturizer
The Vya Naturals Peptide Moisturizer has a soothing and nourishing formula with oatmeal extracts, fatty alcohols, Vitamin E and Peptides as some of its star ingredients. This moisturizer has a creamy lotion consistency that feels quite rich on the skin without being greasy. A little goes a long way with this easily blendable product, and you only need a few dots all over your face and neck. It instantly softens and moisturizes the skin and adds a slight sheen.
The well-balanced ingredients make this moisturizer perfect for dry, aging or sensitive skin. Oatmeal is known to cure skin irritations with ease whereas peptides are the building blocks of collagen and elastin. Together they can heal and strengthen the skin, making it healthy, supple and elastic.
The product is also fragrance-free, and has a very mild natural scent that reminds me of raw tomatoes. The scent does not linger on the skin. Also, an honourable mention to the fact that the brand discloses the full ingredient list on the packaging as well as their website *clap*
Which skin types can use the Vya Naturals Peptide Moisturizer?
The Vya Naturals Peptide Moisturizer is suitable for all skin types, although those with very oily skin may find it a little heavy for the daytime. It is an excellent moisturizer for those with dry, damaged, mature, or irritated skin. It is also great to pair with harsh or strong actives, such as Retinol and BHAs. In fact, this moisturizer can be paired with any active serum without any issues.
I will recommend those with dry to normal skin to use this moisturizer twice a day. Those with oily skin who are living in humid conditions can use this only at night, or use a very small quantity during the day as well, over a hydrating serum.
My Experience With The Vya Naturals Peptide Moisturizer
I do have oily skin but don’t mind a slightly rich moisturizer, specially when I am staying at home all day. This is why the Vya Naturals Peptide Moisturizer worked well for me in the night and day. As I have mentioned earlier, a little goes a long way with this product. So, I dot a small amount of the product all over my face and it keeps my skin plump and moisturized all day/night long. I also enjoyed layering it with Retinol at night as it can protect the skin from the drying effects of Vitamin A.
Also, this moisturizer helps in calming down some irritation on my neck that I get whenever I am stressed. The skin on my neck becomes dry and cracked overnight when this happens. Luckily, this product was able to repair it within 2 days!
Therefore my overall experience with this moisturizer has been pretty great!
Price and Availability
It is priced at INR 450 for a 30ml glass bottle with a pump. The price is already fairly affordable and the brand also runs various sales from time to time. Plus, my coupon code MR10 can get you 10% off even on non-sale days!
Vya Naturals is such an under-rated Indian brand and I have loved ALL their products that I have tried so far (eye cream, turmeric face mask , Vitamin C face wash etc.). I will urge you try out all these products from the brand. And if you are on the lookout for a barrier-strengthening, peptide moisturizer, this gem for Vya Naturals won’t disappoint!
