This cream has a gel texture, but it is still very rich and smooth which I like. I have sensitive skin that is oily, and this is perfect for it since it doesn't irritate my sensitive skin, helps the oil, yet keeps me moisturized.
Good product for oily skin, particularly in summer. I`ve been using this for a few months and I like it - no irritation, breakouts, problems, etc. I brought it to the Caribbean and it stood up to the heat and humidity. Works well under makeup as a mattifying base. SDM often has 15% off on etival products or value kits. I`ve liked all of the etival products I`ve tried so far (the clarifying mask is great, the body cream, and the spot treatment for blemishes). Life brand owns etival and it`s one of the few products that can be returned if you aren`t satisfied with it.
Another incredible product from the Etival Clarifying line. I rarely use an entire product line, but all of them are excellent. I have 30-year-old very sensitive, combination skin that can be acne prone with many products. Usually oil-control product make me more dry, which in turn produces more oil. This one is the only lotion that gets the right balance- moisturizes with SPF, yet has significantly reduced my blotting from up to 10x per day to 1. I use the Gentle Clarifying Cleanser and this for daytime, then the cleanser and the Oil-Free Care Cream,Rederm eye cream and Clear Spot Relief Lotion at night. I bought the items on sale at Shoppers for around $17 and under during a points day, which for the quality is very reasonable. Department store products weren't working and were too expensive for my budget. I had a terrible breakout from Kiehl's and Neutrogena- with this routine, my skin was clear within 2 weeks, less dry and less oily. Can't recommend enough, hope Shoppers continues with this!
