It's not greasy, and I love the high SPF, but something about the texture I don't love. I will continue to use to see if I can figure it out better.

Funny, this works beautifully for me. I almost didn't buy it due to negative reviews. I have combination skin and am in my 30s- dry in the winter and oily in the summer. This doesn't control oil that well, but doesn't make it worse either. It's easily accessible, inexpensive and best of all, never breaks me out. It's probably the only sunscreen in Canada over spf 15 that doesn't cause problems (many ingredients are different than elsewhere). Absolutely no breakouts! It balances my skin perfectly and makeup lasts well. I'm surprised by the negative reviews, but understand the marketing is misleading. It's a good, basic spf 30 day cream for sensitive, combination skin. It shouldn't be labelled as oil control! UPDATE: Now that I've been using it for a while, I'm even more pleased. No breakouts whatsoever and somehow I've adjusted to this so I don't blot anymore. I was oily when I first started using this and for some reason it's perfectly controlled now despite warmer, more humid weather. A dud for most, winner for me!

Not sure why there are so many negative reviews. Perhaps people see "oil control" and imagine some miracle product? Look, it won't give you the oil control of, say, an oil control powder. But if you need/want SPF 30, this will get the job done with a lot less greasiness than other products. Finding a non-greasy moisturizer with SPF 20+ is hard. I've used up a whole bottle and will buy again.

I have been looking for the perfect moisturizer for my extremely oily/acne prone skin for years. I have been using this for a few weeks and it not only helps control the oil, but it does not sit on my face and feel heavy at all. It soaks into my skin fast, and it makes my face feel extremely soft! So far it has not made me breakout any worse than I normally do. I would recommend this product to anyone with acne-prone skin!

Tentative review, based on a sample from the derm.
Ok, so I'm not even bothering with the mattifying business, and am evaluating the product strictly as a sunscreen for oily/acne-prone skin. I've worn this twice, under concealer & a bit of powder, on sunny early spring days in which I haven't gone out much.
So far though:
- finish: not matte, true. But also - not an oil slick. Pores look normal pore-sized (unlike the Ombrelle 60 spf with mexoryl, which is shiny & illuminates & invites all to see deep and wide into every pore [but does not break me out]). I'll call it 'dewy/matte/normal', because wearing it, my skin basically looks like skin w/o makeup. Concealer stays on, no interference (but, no sweating or heat to deal with so far). I rubbed 1/2 a teaspoon of this stuff WELL into my skin.
- feel: like every other chemical spf i've tried (other than the Ombrelle), it stings a bit on application. Much less than Neutrogena 'dry-touch' etc. Settled in fine after a few minutes, and didn't notice it in any way after that. Like, it doesn't feel like it's sitting on top of my skin.
So far, so good. Will update in about a month.

It definitely didn't break me out or make my face greasy but oh my did this burn my eyes. Don't put this anywhere near your eye area , it will seriously make your eye burn like no other . That's the only thing I disliked from this product. I also have dry patches on my eyelids and underneath my eyes so knowing I couldn't apply this all over made it a huge disappointment . I usually applied it first all over and then I'd put primer on my eyelids and for some reason my eyes would burn so badly and ruin my makeup. I only used it all because it cost around $15!!!

I would give this product a higher rating if it was labelled correctly as an oil-free sunscreen rather than an oil-control moisturizer. It doesn't really provide much moisture at all, and can make dry areas (like I get in winter) even more dry and quite irritated. And don't get it anywhere near your eyes! It does not make my skin feel greasy (it is very similar in finish to Neutrogena Dry Touch Sunscreen), but it doesn't control shine any better than the typical oil-free moisturizer. So as an non-greasy, non-comedogenic sunscreen, it's pretty good, and I might purchase it again for sun protection alone; as a product that claims to offer moisture and lasting oil control, it's a disappointment, especially from such a trusted brand.

Yes, it's greasy but oddly enough it absorbs well and is very moisturizing. No, it's isn't good under makeup but quite good as a night moisturizer, esp. after a glycolic treatment and the like. I have very acne prone skin and this hasn't irritated it at all.

I cannot speak for the oil control properties of this moisturizer as I do not have oily skin. I first started using this when I couldn't find my normal moisturizer one day. My acne-prone husband has been using it for awhile. I tried it and really like it as well, even though I don't have oily skin. The only thing I don't like is that it has a tendency to sting my eyes if I accidentally get too much near them.

The BEST moisturizer I EVER used!! I have very sensitive skin and most moisturizers (especially that contain SPF) irritate my skin. I also have oily/acne prone skin. This moisturizer definitely surprised me immediately and I will purchase more of this product before they fly off the shelves. It goes on very lightly and absorbs into the skin immediately. My skin feels light, moisturized and refreshed after I apply in the AM and PM. It does not feel greasy at ALL and stays on throughout the day. Unlike most moisturizers it does not feel greasy after a few hours or at the end of the day. I joined this website specifically to recommend this product to anyone that has not found their go-to moisturizer with SPF yet! I hope this product works well for others as it has for me!!

This barely absorbed into my skin, I had high hopes for a Cetpahil moisturizer for my normal but acne prone skin, I tried using this after my Acne.org's Benzoyl Peroxide (2.5%) gel/cream and it'd just make my face greasy and help me break out, what a waste of money I don't have.

I'm quite surprised at the low rating of this. I have normal skin but as I started a new method of birth control with increased hormones, I now regularly break out around my chin and jaw. It is a struggle to keep that area under control while balancing the growing dry patches on my cheeks & forehead. :( my Clean & Clear dual action was no longer cutting it in the moisturizing department, and I always love seeing a high SPF in a moisturizer as I am burn-prone and super pale! So I decided to try this out. Well, it isn't anything fancy, but it does the job great - my skin has less dryness, I am not seeing any more breakouts due to the product, it is not greasy and the mild sunscreen smell doesn't irk me personally. I'm satisfied. If you have sensitive skin and want a no-frills daily moisturizer with SPF I'd give this one a go.

I've been using this moisturizer for about 6months now. Like many users have said this products does not stop you from getting oily. I love that it goes on smooth and I guess it has helped with my acne. I love the fact that it has SPF30. I just wished it did not make me oily, I mostly get really oily around my T zone especially my nose. The only reason I keep buying this product it's because other products get me more oily. I have tried Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer SPF-30 and compare to that one Cetaphil Moisturizer works best of my skin.

I've been using this product for a little over a month now, which is a long time for me. I like switching products a lot, mostly buying products to specifically fight acne. My acne died down, so I cut down on products. I went from about 15 products to 4. This product I've still been using because I am seeing a slight improvement in my skin. Nothing life-changing.
I wash my face at 6:00am, then go to school. By 9:00am, I am an oily mess. And I accepted that, around 9:05 (when my class lets out) I go to the bathroom and blot my face with oil absorbing sheets.
Using both the oil control foam wash (which I love) AND the moisturizer, my oil production has gone from SUPER oily, to really oily. There really isn't any drastic change. If you'd care to know, I went from using 2 oil absorbing sheets on my face, down to one. But that oil sheet is like dripping oil when I'm done with it.
-Very lightweight, goes on smooth
-Is a good moisturizer for my dry skin
-Burns my face sometimes, don't you dare get it in your eyes.
-Makes my skin LOOK irritated (bright red) for about 30 minutes
-Doesn't control shine or mattify face to the extent that it says it will
-The price (I picked mine up for $15)

I wish I would have read the reviews here before I bought this stuff! It was $15.00 down the drain. There is nothing "oil-control" about this. It works just like a regular oil based moisturizer. Thankfully, it does have the added benefit of a sunscreen, and it didnt cause me to break-out. I wont buy again though.
After using this a little longer I have grown to like it. It does give me a matte finish before applying makeup, but I still don't think it helps at controlling oil. I like that its SPF, but I don't think it is worth the high price. Also, it hasnt caused me to breakout, which is a plus. The price is the major downside to this.

Yikes! I have very oily skin, and I had very high hopes for this moisturizer because it's Cetaphil. I paid about $14 for it, which is a bit expensive for a drugstore brand. This stuff made my face look greasier than it already is! It goes on pretty smooth and it feels nice, but as soon as I apply it, my face looks oily. The only good thing I can say about the product is that it didn't break me out. Now it's just sitting there on my bathroom counter.

This did not control shine on me whatsoever. It wasn't absorbed and it did not provide me with a non-greasy, matte finish. I used a little, I used a lot, either way, my skin was so shiny. I will not be buying this product again.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Olive, Warm Hair: Blond, Wavy, Medium Eyes: Hazel
This is just the worst.
Never have I been compelled to write a review for something because i disliked it so much!
Greasy, filmy, makes me break out. It lingers on skin like grease and does NOT absorb!
Age: 30-35 Skin: Combination, Olive, Warm Hair: Brown, Curly, Medium Eyes: Brown
I bought this for a matte day time moisturizer/sunscreen. It is not mattifying at all, it is a standard sunscreen. And no matter how careful I was, it would manage to get in my eye and burn a lot which doesn't happen at all with my other sunscreens. I finished the bottle but am not buying again.
