I LOVE this moisturizer!! This is my HG moisturizer currently.
A lil' bit of history... Before I've started using the Acne Cleansing Cream (together with its Oil Cleanser), my skin had terrible breakouts esp my chin area. Terrible, terrible, big cystic acne all over my chin, upper lip area and around my nose. Not really sure why but I strongly believe it was because of Paulas's Choice products esp BHA 2% Lotion and the Balancing Toner. I was keeping all my positivity, saying that the breakout was because of my congested skin and that the BHA was just doing the job. But after about one month and a half, my skin did not show any sign of getting better. Big cystic acne kept popping up, I thought to myself, that's it!!
I've searched high and low for natural remedy to cure my problem. Then I found MooGoo!! After one week of only using the Oil Cleanser and the Acne Cleansing Cream, my skin has improved tremendously! My breakout has decreased and my skin is looking better. Love!
Some people may find this cream a bit on oily side and some said it's a little bit drying for their liking. I believe it really depends on your skin type. I have combination and yes, I do find it a lil' bit oily eap for daytime use. But what the heck. As long as my skin is free from acne I'll continue this. And since I use some powder, the 'oiliness' is not really a biggie to me. I totally love what the cream does for me.
In the morning, I'll wash my face with Moogoo Milky Wash, follow by this cream (while your skin is still damp). I'll wait for like 5-10mins then I put on my foundation or BB cream or sunscreen and a light face powder.
At night, I'll use make-up wipes follow by the Oil Cleanser (love!). Then apply the Acne Cleansing Cream.
I've been using this for about two weeks. Smells prettiful. Face feels prettiful. Reduces pimples. Skin looks nice, although I don't think it works well under my foundation- as my foundation has been caking when I put it on first. I think I need to let it sink in for about an hour at least before foundation, so that's a shame. I wanted a day time product, since the serum I use at night would be slippery and I asked them and they recommended this. I love it, but I don't really think any Moogoo product is good for "immediate" use. It needs a lot of time to sink it, which is fair enough considering the ingredient list.
This is a miracle product! Big call to make but it's just incredible how much improvement I've seen since using this cream morning and night. I was using the Full Milk cream and didn't really see much difference with breakouts, although it did improve the evenness of my skin. This cream has made my skin tone even, brightened my skin and I've had clear skin since I started using it about a month ago.
Seriously impressed wit MooGoo products! It being cheap is an added bonus! They could quadruple the cost and I would still be stocking up.
I was pretty skeptical upon purchasing this cream because it's a cleansing cream + moisturizer AND it claims to show results within a few days to a week. But wow, does it live up to its claims. I had been using benzoyl peroxide to clear up my acne prior to this, and have been on a bout of extremely dry skin. However, it had been the only thing that was working for me, so I stuck to it, until I discovered MooGoo. I have been using this day and night, immediately after I wash my face, and while it's still slightly damp, massaging it in gently, then leaving it to dry. That and nothing else. My face has cleared, it's still oily, but no more so, which is surprising, as I was expecting this cream, with its thick consistency, to turn me into a grease pot as all the other moisturizers had. It's never clogged or broken me out, and my skin seems to be staying clear after more than a week. It's easy and it works. Love it!
Had a massive hormonal breakout on my face and I have tried all kinds products and regime including the benzoyl peroxide regime which made my skin even worse and sensitive. I was really desperate for a cure and my bf bought me this. It calms down my screaming red acne face and slowly clearing some acne.
The texture of the cream is perfect for the all-year-long hot weather here. But when I'm in an air conditioned room it can be quite drying. So I will use it with neutralizing, scar, acne or hydrating ampoules and they work together perfectly!
My face is not 100% clear yet.. still have some new acne from time to time but I understand that these product are not magic and it takes time. At least my face doesn't look like a screaming tomato anymore. I was using this with Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser. Will try this out with MooGoo Oil cleanser next time. Might give me better results.
I really love Moogoo's stuff in general, but unfortunately, I found this too "thick" feeling for my super oily skin. Its almost like it feels "oily" rather than adding hydration, if that makes sense.
My problem isnt really acne, but rather, I get clogged skin and then under skin bumps, so having a thick feeling moisturiser is a nono for me. I use the MSM cream now as my facial moisturiser. Its much more light feeling and sinks right in.
I only use this (to use it up) in winter when going out in the wind etc, when I need some more protection (as a barrier).
As I said, I dont have acne, but bad skin from oily skin / clogged pores, so I dont know how valid my review is.
This is a lightweight moisturiser and I have to say it is pretty awesome. I wouldn't say my skin is 100% clear but it is definitely a safe cream to use for acne prone skin. It is a bit too light for my dry skin but it was perfect in summer.
If my skin ever goes haywire, I would repurchase.
This is my HG moisturizer! I've only had one other HG which is L'occitane's red rice line which is soon to be discontinued. I've used this for 4 months. It's helped with my hormonal acne. I now have the clearest skin I've ever had in years. Even my previous HG wasn't as good as this. I've suffered from acne for 10 years. It's become milder as I got older and probably thanks to 2 rounds of accutane, but it was always there and worse during that time of month. I'd say my adult acne is mild. I couldn't believed how much this worked! I can't stop staring at my skin because it's great!
This is perfect for combination skin. It doesn't break me out. It hydrates perfectly & doesn't make me oily in my T zone. It might not be enough for drier skin types though, I'd recommend the MSM MooGoo cream for dry skin, which is my winter moisturizer.
I can't recommend MooGoo enough. I tried it because of all the rave reviews on forums, and since it wasn't expensive I figured, what do I have to lose? I already tried drugstore brands, expensive brands like La Mer, Philosophy, Estee Lauder, Aesop, Korres etc. So I bought it and now I'm a MooGoo lover for life. I will NEVER switch from this brand because of the results.
This cream comes in a cute and practical pump bottle, the consistency is nice, creamy but light and the cream doesn't smell that much at all.
It absorbs quickly into the skin and the skin does look matter right after application and I can see that the cream calms the read areas on my face. However I haven't noticed that it has had any effect on my existing pimples and I also don't think that I have fewer breakouts than before. I also would like it to moisturize a little bit better than it does.
I have stopped using the cream on my face and instead I use it to calm my eczema when it gets itchy, in my opinion it haven't done much for my acne but I like how calming it feels on the skin.
A MUST FOR ALL ACNE SUFFERERS!!!!!!
Finally, an awesome acne moisturiser that is entirely natural and works. It is formulated with what seems like all the special ingredients from the rest of the range - MSM, green tea, grape seed oil, resveratrol, milk protein, vitamin C and E and apple cider vinegar for an awesome antioxidant, antiageing, antibacterial, antiinflammatory and healing combo in a bottle.
It smells luscious - fresher than the vanilla smelling remainder of the range. It absorbs quickly which I find is very important for my congested and acne prone skin. It leaves the skin refreshed, protected and a natural semi-matte finish.
It only comes in an airless pump bottle (good! Hygienic!!!) at $18.50rrp for 75ml. As with all Moogoo creams, a little goes a long way.
I have been using this in conjunction with some medicated creams but I find that I need to use them less as my skin is actually healing. I am pretty sure that the acne I do get heals a lot quicker and does not get as inflamed.
I simply adore this product and highly recommend it to ANYBODY with problematic skin.
