It claims to control oil - did nothing for me.
It should prevent pimples - I still get pimples around "that" time of the month, not more, not less pimples either.
Didn't break me out, though. So after I finish my tube, I'm on to the next moisturizer....
I've been using this lotion for only a week now, but I can already see the effect. It works magic on my skin and already managed to clear my skin up. The moment I apply it on my skin I get a soothing sensation, it gets absorbed real fast and there is absolutely no greasy feeling and the skin remains grease-free for a long time. I also use the Tea Tree Facial Wash and Toner to go with it- together they are a winning team!
Of course it remains to be seen if this super performance continues, if not then I will modify my review in future, but for now I'm really impressed.
well i really like this product. it's the only product i have found to help with oily skin. i don't think it helps with pimples but it doesn't make me break out. i only used it in the morning because the tea tree lotion can be drying to my cheeks.
I really like this product. It is described as a mattifying moisturizer which is suppose to help clear acne and blemishes while controlling shine. I only use this in the morning before my sunscreen and makeup. I cannot use this moisturizer by itself because it does mattify my skin except after a while, it feels uncomfortable. So I actually do have to mix this moisturizer with another lotion. It kinda defeats the mattifying part but it still kinda does a nice job at controlling oil. I don't know about it's acne clearing properties because I do struggle with acne, I think it helps with keeping it under controlled. I like the scent of it. I would buy it again when I run out and would recommend it to other.
I use this occasionally along with the Tea Tree Face Wash when my skin feels oilier. Unless you are uber-oily, I wouldn't use it daily because it does seem a little drying. Not too bad though, and does seem to help keep my skin clear. Great in the summertime.
Sorry tea tree, once again you have failed on my face. I finally gave my little sample a try. Applying it after toner. It mattifies my skin and control my oil somewhat. But over time, as I used it, it didn't help. It started to leave my skin more oily and I broke out.
I am somewhat neutral about this product as I feel it does do what it says it does- provides shine- control, which is a bonus for me as I do have oily skin. However, I am brown in complexion (NW40 for reference) and this lotion creates white patches on my face once dried and makes my face look extremely dry. I am not one to leave the house without any makeup so after using the lotion I simply apply my primer which gets rid of the dry patches. If you are the same complexion as myself and don't wear any makeup then I don't recommend you use this product by itself, instead use another lotion on top. This lotion doesn't stop blemishes from appearing but it does help get rid of them. Have I repurchased this product before? Yes. Will I repurchase this product again? Maybe.
I've only been using this for a week, so an edit may happen in the future. So far though, I'm IN LOVE with this moisterizer. I went on accutane about seven years ago. Since then, my face has been pretty clear. I'd recently started breaking out horribly again, and realized it's from all the sodium laurel sulfate in my products. So now I'm buying SLS free. Fortunately, this is SLS free and my zits have all cleared up in the past week. This tingles on contact (because of the tea tree oil), and I actually like the feeling. It also gives a matte finish, which is awesome. My face had recently begun getting oily, but now that problem is all cleared up. I only paid about $11 (ish?) for this at ulta, so compared to what I've been buying, this was a bargain!
I like this moisturizer :) This retails for SGD$29.90 for a 50ml tube. As stated on the website, 'A beautifully light and moisturising lotion that sinks into the skin to hydrate and help clear and prevent blemishes. This lotion also contains powders for shine control. Skin appears matte.' This is a opaque milky white lotion which has a gel-like consistency. It spreads easily on the face, and it is absorbed into the skin with no trace of stickiness or oilyness, which I like. Honestly, this is suitable for normal to oily skin. Recently, I was sent some acne products to be tested and after a week, my skin was so dry that there were dry patches. After using this twice a day for a while, it could not eliminate the dry patches. It was finally gone when the cells on the surface of the skin was naturally sloughed off and renew itself every 28 days. Hence, this product is suitable in this climate of the sunny tropics where piling too many products on the skin will cause makeup to slide off easier. I find it weird that powders were added in to a moisturizer to help with shine control, but I couldn't detect it inside. The tea tree scent in this lotion is also strong and easily detected when you open the cap. Hence, it might not be suitable for people who are sensitive to fragrances. However, it goes away after application so I was not bothered with that. This lotion was packaged in a opaque green tube which made it hard to see the amount of product left inside unless you shake it. My skin had cleared up slightly, but I think it was due to a change in diet rather than this lotion. However, I don't expect my skin care products to be miracle workers, so I will overlook this for now. I will recommend this to anybody who likes tea tree products and wants a light lotion, and I will repurchase this product when I have finished my stockpile of moisturisers :)

This does nothing to my very oily skin. i thought it would do like what it says but unfortunately, it does the opposite. it made my skin OILIER than ever and i had to blot my face for 1235614276518 times -_- wont repurchase it.
