I didn't realize my skin was somewhat sensitive until I used this. Pretty good product, keeps my breakouts in check, leaves my skin smooth and matte but god dammit it stings if I don't use a good amount of serum underneath. Not for the sensitive skin.
I bought this after a friends suggestion & lucked out by getting it during their buy two get two sale so pretty much got it for free, otherwise it's a bit pricey. After I wash my face in the morning I put this on. It leaves my skin feeling like I don't have anything on & I've noticed it controls the oil as long as I don't use too much. My makeup goes smoothly on top of it & it's even great by itself on days when I don't wear makeup. My face seems to have cleared up as well since I started using this. Not significantly, but it definitely helps.
I have used this product for 3 years now. It helped keep a lot of my acne flare ups in control and at the same time kept my face a little less oily. There has been many products I've tried over the years many with the same results, but this was the only one that didn't dry out my skin. Other products made my skin dry and flakey.
I do wish it could hydrate a little more, but other than that I love it and continue to use it.
I would and do repurchase this regularly. It can frequently be found at 50% off during sales and is well worth it for that price.
I really like this lotion. It helped clear out my skin, and i have far less breakouts now. Definitely repurchasing !
I love this product! It does its job as a moisturiser and leaves a lovely matte finish. I'm not sure it fulfills the skin-clearing part of the bargain, but it is gentle and feels very light. It's a little expensive but then... it IS The Body Shop. I prefer it over its counterpart, the night lotion, but I like the night lotion's pump bottle packaging better. I would buy again. (:
I have a little tube of this, that came with a tea tree set. I really love this, I use this at night and it gives a nice tingling feeling on your face. For me, this is kind of on the expensive side, but I guess it's allright. The only con is that I never get the amount of product that I want, sometimes way to much and sometimes almost nothing. But the thing is a little goes a long way.
I've been using this product for 3 years. I use it in the morning after wearing toner. And I never change it! it feels soft on the skin, love the matte feeling it gave. And it's really help my oily skin and reduce my acne. This is my favorite product of the body shop!
I use this product every night and every morning. In the 4 days that I've used it, I am in LOVE! I have oily skin, very oily skin, and the minute that I rub the lotion onto my face, the matte finish that it gives, I LOVE! And the matte finish lasts through the night and I wake up to a fresh face, not a greasy, oily mess. During the day, when I use it, it kind of acts like a primer, in my opinion. I'm so satisfied with this product and in this short time that I've been using it, like I said, I LOVE IT!
I switched from the Body Shop Seaweed Mattifying Day Cream to this a few months ago, and I must say I'm still very impressed. I was originally going to buy this instead of the seaweed one however the SA talked me into trying the seaweed one as it tends to be a bit less drying than tea tree, however I found it not quite oil-controlling enough. I changed to this one and found it very light, cooling and refreshing as soon as you apply it.
It absorbs very easily and does not leave a visible residue, nor can you feel a residue. My skin still feels very clean after applying this. I don't find it very drying, however I occasionally (a.k.a. almost never) get very small dry patches near my nose, and I find that if I apply just a little bit more than usual of this near my nose they go away within a day or two, so whilst it does an excellent job of oil control it is also a good moisturiser.
No problems with the packaging, I like the flip-top squeeze tube, however I would like to see a larger size become available. The price is decent considering it is a Body Shop product, however like all their products I would like to see it a little lower.
Overall, I am very happy with the job this moisturiser does for my oily skin and have already repurchased more than once.
