I bought this product, the cream version over the lotion after reading the reviews for it on MUA. The reviews are correct in saying it is more matte than the lotion. I found it to be cosmetically elegant - didn't add shine or oil to my face. It does last well and it didn't interfere with makeup application at all. However, it broke me out terribly. I occurred 8 pimples from it! I take oral antibiotics & bcp, use retin-a and AHA lotion, so there is no reason for such a massive breakout when my skin has been perfect for months. The only new thing in my regimen was the Shiseido ss. It's very unfortunate that it causes pimples for me as I liked it and would have put up with 1 pimple from it, but not a pimple apocalypse on my nose & cheeks. It did make my skin feel a bit itchy now & then. I applied this ss over a light moisturizer [Cetaphil] and removed it with a cleansing oil [Origins] and followed up with my acne face wash.
