This is a light moisturiser-like lotion for daily application to oily areas of the face. I found it didn't mattify, and did little to control oil or blemishes, though it didn't make them any worse or dry out or sensitise my skin at all. It has a very faint and not unpleasant medicated scent. The tube claims this 'fights the key causes of spots' but I saw no evidence of this. Another unnecessary step and a waste of money.
