Overview

How moisturizing is this?

Quite moisturizing. SIRCUIT SKIN Fixzit Plus has a moisturizing rating of 3.2 out of 10.

Is it more humectant or occlusive?

Purely humectant. It has a high Humectancy of 6.3 out of 10 and zero Occlusivity (we didn't find any occlusives on the ingredient list).
Tip: Studies suggest that humectants alone do not moisturize the skin. We recommend applying a product with some occlusive ingredients after the use of this one.
