I liked this at first, but after about a month it started getting little clumps in it! They get all over my face and hands and and are really a pain in the ass.

This is a decent moisturizer with a high SPF. It does feel a little sticky when you first apply it, but once it sets, that feeling goes away - even though it doesn't really dry to a matte finish.

It moisturizes just right, makes an excellent base for makeup and despite its dewy-ish finish, actually has decent oil control. Because of that, and because of the reliable sun protection and fragrance-free formula, this is a good option for my sensitive combination skin, that I would recommend and repurchase.

I feel like this product is really nothing special. It doesn't control my oil, but it keeps my skin hydrated and protected from UV rays. I continue repurchasing this simply because it hasn't failed me now, but it is nothing to rave about. I wouldn't recommend it, nor would I say anything bad about it.

Back before acne treatments dried my face and birth control helped control my oil somewhat, I was using this in the vain hopes that it would help mattify my skin. It did not. In fact, I felt sticky and gross using this, and I used a whole bottle in hopes that it would get better. It did not. I didn't break out from this, but that's it.
I'd recommend talking to your doc about birth control cuz that helps cut the oil production, but if you can't go on birth control and/or you're still looking to degrease: use blotting sheets. and blotting powder. no moisturizer is gonna keep you matte. And this one just feels gross. You'd be better off finding a regular, but light moisturizer than one specifically geared toward 'keeping you matte'.

I originally purchased this for my 13 year old daughter because she has oily acne prone skin, and I wanted her to have a facial sunscreen as part of her daily beauty regimen. For her, this works fine. It does not break her out, but it does not control oil at all.

I decided to try this out myself, and I really like it. I have combination skin, and I really like how it makes my skin feel and it has been an excellent base before I put on my foundation (double wear). Moisturizes without making my t-zone greasy and not heavy feeling at all. Also, does not cause a white cast on the face. It's pretty pricey though, but sometimes Cetaphil has coupons on their website. Combine coupon with a sale, and the price is not that bad.

Oddly surprised that this worked so well on my skin. I have oily acne prone skin around the tzone. So I wanted to find something that moisturizes without creating more oil. this is probably the best product I've found for my combination skin.

I bought this after reading about it in some magazine or blog, and its a good thing i didn't check these reviews first because I wouldn't have bought it. However, i've been using this for a week and love it!

I have not been able to find a daily 30 SPF moisturizer that is non-greasy, and this one works great! I like the dewey look, and this product isn't super mattifying, but definitely limits the grease for me. Probably will buy a different product next time, just to experiment, but would buy again if i can't find anything better.

I agree with other reviewers. An overall a good moisturizer that i trusted because my dermatologist recommended it to me (she uses it also) but i do have a few closed comedones that i didnt have before and that i didnt know had something to do with this lotion. Now that other reviewers have said that they noticed it too, it must be the lotion

I wanted to review this product to add some balance to the negative reviews.

I chose this sunscreen because I has the lowest risk rating (2) from the Environmental Working Group of any of the drugstore sunscreens with an spf 30 or higher. When you use sunscreen everyday this is something to consider. Paula Begoun gave it 3 stars out of 4.

It is a lightweight, fragrance free formula. While it is not particularly oil controlling, it is not greasy and absorbs well. I do not use foundation so I can't comment on how it is under liquid makeup. I do powder after it and that works just fine. I have had no issues with clogged pores or an allergic reaction. It is my current favorite daily sunscreen.

I do have to be very careful about keeping it away from my eyes and eyelashes. This sunscreen does burn the eyes badly if you are forgetful and allow it to happen.

This product is horrid! It got my skin extremely itchy and it was not mattifying whatsoever it made me look sooo greasy. Maybe its an allergic reaction but no other moisturizer has reacted the way this one has on my skin. It made my skin feel damaged more than anything. Stay away!
