Fun fact – whenever I look for the brand Vegreen online, the first thing I see is an advertisement for the VeGreen Vegan Fusion restaurant in Duluth. Now nothing against vegan fusion cuisine, but I am here to talk about Vegreen, the skincare brand, and specifically about their 730 Daily Moisture Cream that I loved so much I finished it (and featured it in my Favorite skincare of 2021!), but that somehow never got a review on here.
Now it happens occasionally that I have a delay in using a product and posting, but almost never that I completely finish it off and still didn’t post about it! After all, if I end up using something until the last drop, I do have an opinion worth sharing.
Here are my thoughts on this one and some other Vegreen products:
What the Vegreen 730 Daily Moisture Cream claims
An intensive moisturizing daily cream for anyone, anywhere, anytime, any condition without skin irritation.
Facts about the Vegreen 730 Daily Moisture Cream
Prize and size
One tube contains 50 ml and is available for 18,30 $ on the website here. Like all products from the brand it is vegan.
Texture and smell
The cream feels and looks like a cream in the best sense of the word. It is rich without being greasy, white and has no real scent.
How to use the Vegreen 730 Daily Moisture Cream
While the cream can be used morning or night, depending on your skin type, I prefer night time use. When I was at the beach though in summer and made my first attempts in Stand-Up-Paddle-Boarding (read: I fell in the water like 200 times a day), I reached for it a lot during the day as well: Salt water can be quite stressful for the hair and skin, so something to sooth and form a barrier afterwards really was welcome. Another thing I loved it for was to buffer my Tretinoin, as the plain formulation and thick texture make it perfect for that. (More info: How to use Retin A with minimal irritation)
The benefit of this cream is that it does all this, sooth and form a barrier, without ever feeling heavy or greasy. Yes, it is no lightweight gel, but compared to other soothing creams it is one of the more comfortable ones.
Depending on your skin type, you could of course use it in the mornings underneath your sunscreen as well, it never caused any pilling for me.
Ingredients of the Vegreen 730 Daily Moisture Cream
Hover the mouse over an ingredient for short explanation. Read more on INCIDecoder.
As you can see, the ingredient list is short and sweet, which I like especially in my moisturizers. There is Glycerin as humectant, Squalane and Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride to support the skin barrier and Arginine for extra hydration and wound healing. (More info: The five steps you need to take to repair your damaged skin barrier)
Does it live up to its claims?
It is really one for anyone, anytime and anywhere.
How does it compare to…
La Roche Posay Cicaplast Baume B5+ Repairing Cream
The (recently reformulated) gold standard of soothing and repairing creams, the Cicaplast Baume B5+, is much thicker in texture and combines more soothing ingredients like Cica (More info: The benefits of Centella Asiatica in skincare) and Panthenol (More info: The benefits of Panthenol in skincare explained). While it still isn’t greasy, the thicker texture makes me less inclined to reach for it every day, meaning that while I use a Roche Posay in the winter when it is cold or on dry patches (and wouldn’t want to miss it for that), the Vegreen version is more one for daily use before dryness appears, and also one that I would use as described above in the summer, when La Roche Posay is too thick in the heat. Safe to say, I think it is perfectly reasonable to own both.

Would I repurchase and which skin types do I recommend the Vegreen 730 Daily Moisture Cream to?
Yes, I can certainly see myself repurchasing the moisturizer, the only thing I wish is that it was more easily accessible for me. As far as skin types are concerned, I think it will suit all but the very oily ones and can even be used by those prone to acne.
