I bought this based on a recommendation in a book. I wanted something really light for nighttime that would fight breakouts. The texture of this was just perfect. It sinks right into your skin and doesn't leave any greasy residue. Unfortunately, this made my acne worse. After a couple of uses, two or three pimples turned into a dozen. I think this has menthol in it, because there is a cooling sensation when you smooth it on. The menthol might have irritated my skin and kicked up my acne. This would probably work well for someone with less reactive skin.

I bought this to use a a night time moisturizer because I have oily skin that doesn't need a super heavy one at night but I wanted something to help with some breakout i've been having. First night was fine, the day afterwards my face felt warmer than usually (like i was blushing constantly, and then the second night when i applied it, the cooling sensation turned into burning and my face turned bright red with tiny bumps all over. So horrible, I'm glad I only used it twice before stopping. It's a shame because my favourite moisturizer EVER is the clean and clear hydrating gel moisturizer, so i guess you just can't judge a brand by one product.

I bought this moisturizer on a whim. That was about 6 years ago. I haven't used any other everyday moisturizer since. I now have a different night cream and what not but in the morning, this is the best thing to have on your face. It has a cooling sensation which is what I live for. It claims to help acne but I haven't noticed anything drastic. It never dries me out and it never makes me greasy. It is super lightweight and works perfectly for my oily/combination skin.
I find it's the best to put under makeup since it's so light weight. This with a primer work perfectly to keep my makeup shine free. Try it out! It's not expensive at all so go pick up a bottle!

For reference, I have combination to oily skin and I am acne prone.

Truth be told; I bought this moisturizer on a whim, with no intention of loving it at all. But I did.

This is a light, refreshing moisturizer that is great for everyday use. If you are looking for an intensive moisturizing cream, this is not it. I think normal, slightly dry or oily skins will benefit more from this cleanser than extremely dry skins will.

The moisturizer feels very light and fresh. It has a slight cooling effect. It also comes with a pump, which I appreciate.

The reason I am giving it a four, is because it didn't wow me, it didn't really help with my slight acne (as the product claims), but it is a good standard moisturizer.

-Comes with a Pump
-Moisturizing enough

-Doesn't really help with acne
-Not for extremely dry skins

i have oily skin and i really love this moisturizer. i apply it in the morning and before bed, as well as after going swimming. it really feels like it goes into my skin rather than just sitting on top of it. it has kind of a cooling sensation when you first apply it but it's refreshing, not uncomfortable or anything. it doesn't have a smell and it seems to keep acne manageable.

I have extremely dry skin, and a few months ago my mother bought this for me at a time that I was breaking out. (Not too bad, just a few spots.) I put this all over my face and it seems like the next day all my pimples were gone! This product is especially good with treating pimples. BUT, it was drying out my skin like crazy, so I stopped using it and switched back to just using argan oil.

Flash forward to present day, I was having a few under-the-skin pimples which was unusual for me. I wanted to try this moisturizer again but feared drying out my skin. I FOUND THE PERFECT SOLUTION.

After I wash my face, I apply my argan oil all over my face, let that soak in for about ten to fifteen minutes, then I apply the Clean and Clear moisturizer ONLY on trouble spots. I find that this clears up my problem areas without drying my entire face.

Overall, if you have drier skin make sure to previously moisturize then apply only on your pimples.

I have dry skin and in the winter I need to use a heavy moisturizer at night. Sadly, this is not as intense as I need it to be. But, right when I get out of the shower at night after I have done my regular cleansing and whatnot, I put this on. Then I go about drying my hair, getting into my pj's, making tea, watching a movie or whatever. Right before sleep I put on my "hardcore" moisturizer (cetaphil daily moisture cream. It's in a big tub) in the morning, my face isn't tight or dry but I know my acne will be at bay. It's great, however, to put on under makeup since it's not greasy.

Not greasy
No smell
Not irritating
Treats acne (very well)

Pump-product will occasionally shoot across the room
Not intense enough for people with very dry skin

So in conclusion, I will continue to repurchase.

Ps. I'm not kidding about the product squirting across the room. USE WITH CAUTION
