looking for a simple effective moisturizer, hopefully this is it! will update
I tried this on a whim. There aren't very many oil-free, fragrance-free moisturizers available at major drug stores in Ontario, Canada. This stuff is great! It absorbs quickly and leaves no greasy residue - sinks completely into my skin. I have combination-slightly dry skin (especially during the fall/winter months), with some rosacea. Not only did this NOT irritate my skin, it does not make me break out at all, and it doesn't exacerbate my rosacea! It's a definite regular buy from now on.
I'm very upset with this product! I purchased this when my skin felt sensitized a few months ago by all the anti-acne products I was using, and was just looking for a simple and gentle moisturizer. I remembered that my dermatologist had recommended it to me in the past so I bought it with confidence that it would not make me break out. I didn't expect any miracle results from this product like anti-aging benefits or reduction of pore size etc. - just light moisture that wouldn't interfere with my skin's natural healing process. However I was so disappointed that it didn't even do that. Instead it gave me the worst break out I've had in years!! It claims to be oil-free and non-comedogenic...yeah right! If a product with these claims, that was also recommended by a dermatologist doesn't work for me, I don't know what to believe or use on my face anymore :( Definitely will not buy again.
The first moisturizer I will buy again and again. I have pretty sensitive skin, with oily T zone, with all kinds ob acne.It's refreshing and completly oil free. I am using it after neutrogena blackheads eliminating scrub twice a day, and my skin was never so clear and even. I didn't break out at all.
Some says that it's not so good under makeup, but I am a man and I don't have that problem ;)
I have good luck with this lotion and am on my second bottle. I have on-the-dry-side, sensitive skin (face) and I HATE any greasy, smelly stuff on my face. This soaks in immediately, does not SMELL, is a decent price. This is my everyday choice after using and trying MANY brands. My skin has no adverse reaction(s) whatsoever -- no break-outs, no greasing up... I prefer a see-thru container but that's a small complaint. I do use Origins Night-A-Mins for night moisturizing. Overall I'm pleased with this lotion and I have had no unhappy reactions to this product.
POST NOTE: This stuff is okay -- can't see/feel that it does much of anything actually. I'll stick with the high-end product I actually get results with.
I have combo skin that clogs easily and very mild rosacea. Retin-A Micro keeps my my pores clear & adult acne under control. However, there are times when I need a light moisturizer over my Skinceuticals B5 (HA) serum or when I have light flakes from the RAM. It also wears well under my Sofina Lucent sunscreen.
This particular moisturizer has simple ingredients, sinks in quickly without residue, and does the job. If I needed something more, I'd seal it with petroleum jelly. I can even use it around my eyes without getting milia.
Definitely worth trying if you have trouble finding a moisturizer for problem skin.
A few weeks ago, after using Olay Deep Cleansing Cloths and having a horrible reaction to them, my face was red, dry, and covered in a rash-like breakout. I desperately needed something to sooth and moisterize and thought this might be a good choice. Unfortunately, it wasn't. At first, I thought I would like it because it was light and didn't feel heavy at all on my skin after I applied it. But about half an hour to 45 minutes later, I happened to touch my face and it felt VERY sticky, as if I had slathered a thin layer of Elmer's glue on my face. I wouldn't have minded that much except for the fact that my fiance likes to touch my face, and if he had been with me that night, he probably would've complained.
I guess I used this for about three days, until I realized it wasn't helping my redness at all, and might have even made it worse. The only good thing I have to say about it is that it did layer very well under my makeup and didn't seem to make my face oily during the day. But I wouldn't recommend this moisterizer to my worst enemy.
Horrible. Absolutely terrible. I have never been a person with oily skin. However, this "Oil-Free Moisturizer" made my face incredibly oily - particularly my t-zone. Literally, in the middle of a conversation my father pulled out a tissue & wiped my nose. Without any notice! He just wiped my nose. I was completely mortified, to say the least. Steer clear of this product.
Not a bad product but I tried olay complete and it works much better. This product did moisturize but it also seemed to be a bit greasy. Probably will not repurchase since I've discovered the olay complete moisturizers.
How can they call this is oil-free? It has petrolatum!!! Broke me out big time.
