I actually have dry skin, but I find this product works really well in making my face smooth and soft. The directions says to use one pump, but i usually use two small pumps, so it might run out faster. One pro is that it's light and non-greasy, but makes my face just a little bit shiny.
A good general moisturizer for the face. I'm a bit surprised at some of the reactions on here. When I put on too much my face reacts and gets sticky and such, but they tell you right on the bottle only 1 pump. Do that and its the perfect amount. I have very sensitive and acne prone skin, and I was using a moisturizer with salicylic acid and it put a chemical burn under my lips - I changed to this a BAM those patches started clearing up. It was instant relief after I put it on. I've used more expensive stuff that gets a smoother result, but as my father says "we're in a recession!" Maintaining my skin is good enough for now.
I have very sensitive/combination skin. This is one of the moisturizers I tried at very first and i was very glad that I bought it. It was easy for my skin to absorb, easy to spread and leaves no grease. It felt really light and it's perfect for the summer time. I'm still trying to find out if it's moisturizing enough for the winter time. Will update in the future.
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.
