works! this product replaces my Clinique moisturizing gel due to its ability to keep my oily skin under control! lasts.
Its quite a good product. It definitely gives your skin a very matified and sheer look. The only thing i don't like about this product is that it doesn't deliver a lot of moisture but overall, great!!!
I like this moisturiser. When I used it initially, I felt that it wasn't hydrating enough and my skin would feel a little taut and dry through the day. But after using it for a week or so, my skin found its balance, and now this moisturiser feels just perfect. So I'd advise anyone who is trying this product to give it some time and be patient with it. Don't believe everything the salespeople tell you about a little going a long way- I tent to use three pumps on my face before I feel satisfied. Different people will use different amounts of this product, given that it is not your typical thick and rich moisturiser. This is a great base for makeup- liquid and powder. I use it with the Pureness powder and it really does keep my face from getting oily through the day. Before using the Pureness range I would get oily within half an hour of washing my face and putting on my makeup. But now I find that I can go at least 4 hours or so before I need to touch up with a blotting paper and some powder. It hasn't made my acne any worse and it feels light and easy on the skin. I'd recommend it to anyone with acne prone and oily skin.
LOVE LOVE LOVE. I just need to say again, that I love everything in the Pureness range - it has saved my skin which only recently started becoming problematic (I'm in my early 20's)!! It's a lightweight, almost water-like moisturiser. You only need a tiny bit for it to cover your face and yet again a little goes a long way! Definitely would buy again!
Loveeeeeee this moisturizer!!! I've been using it for almost 7 years and countless bottles! I have oily skin and often get breakouts every month or with using new products on my skin... This moisturizer is just perfect for my skin! Just a tiny drop will keep my face moist yet oil and shine free. It absorbs quickly leaving my face feeling fresh and crisp in the morning and at night after wash. Works well under foundation or even mixed in with foundation as well!
I was in a search for a moisturizer I could use everyday. I am really picky with what I use as a moisturizer because I don't like the feeling as though I have something on my face, it has to keep me looking matte, hydrate my skin, and be oil-free since I do have an oily T zone.
I was a bit skeptical with this product at first since I've weened out of my Shiseido phase over the years after discovering better products out there. To my surprise this moisturizer is amazing! It absorbs quickly into my skin so it doesn't feel as though I applied anything at all but it's so hydrating at the same time. It's not sticky and my skin stays matte. It's also a wonderful base for my foundation and it doesn't make me oily. I can't say much for oil control since my T zone gets oily but not too oily. I never have to blot though. Definitely recommend this!
This is the BEST moisturizer I have ever used. Having a combination/oily skinned complexion, I am always extremely tentative about applying creams to my skin. After doing an enormous amount of research on oil-free moisturizers (and testing a fair few) I came across this Sheseido lotion. Although it didn't receive the 5 lipstick reviews that I always look for, I decided to try it out despite my reservations. Man, am I glad I did!
I use 1.5 pumps of this moisturizer twice a day after cleansing and applying my topical acne medications. **Just a tip: Make sure you always wait 20-30 minutes for your topical(s) to dry before applying any moisturizer. Otherwise you can spread the medication onto areas of your face that are not affected by acne, causing irritation and possible discoloration** When using this product, it actually looks, feels, and smells good. I always feel like I'm doing something positive for my skin when I use it.
This moisturizer looks and feels more like a serum. It glides onto your skin and doesn't leave ANY oily residue. It also dries rather quickly which is a positive if, like me, you're always rushing in the morning. It keeps my face relatively free of oil for at least 6 hours, and then the little oil that returns is easily removed with a blotting paper. I would definitely recommend this product for people with combination/oily skin like me, but not for people with drier complexions. I also would recommend this for people who are using topical acne medications that AREN'T retinol/retinoid or BP based products (i.e. Aczone, Avar e, etc.)
Definitely worth the $35 from Sephora. My only grudge is that I wish I got a more product for my money... But that shall not stop me from purchasing this miracle moisturizer over and over and over again!
I'm not big on "moisturizing" but this is the best possible moisturizer for me. Usually after I wash my face or get out of the shower, the skin on my face feels very tight and dry- although I do not have dry skin. So when I need something to keep me moisturized without leaving me looking slick and oily this is what i use. Downside to packaging: the pump has become difficult to use. But maybe it is only a defect with my bottle.
Love this!! Just bought it last night. I'm using this as a primer under my tinted moisturizer in the summer and it's perfect. It's incredibly light and makes my skin silky smooth with a light layer of hydration to prepare my face for make up. It also does a good job of making your skin both matte and a little dewy. I have slightly oily combination skin and most daytime moisturizers are too heavy for me and this totally works.
This is not a bad product at all. However it does not make any wonders on me.
I was lucky to get a sample, for me it is definitely not worth the money.
I have very sensitive acne prone skin, which, as I get older, is more and more to the dry/combination side, but I wanted something to keep me matte in T-zone during the day at the airconditioned office.
When applied it goes on smoothly and blends well but I hated the smell which is rather chemical. It irritated my skin. It is weird how often the producers do not take into account that oily skin can be sensitive and hyperreactive.
And as to the main purpose - it did very nice base for my liquid (MUFE HD), with nice soft matte finish. However, around midday I had to blot and retouch as usually.
So I do not recommend.
