I have been experiencing break outs for the past 2 years because of hormonal imbalance. I am blessed with good genes, people do not believe me when I told them my age (48yo). So you can imagine how I feel about these break outs. I tried a lot of anti pimples products but not really so serious about it until I decided to really get rid of them. I use the foam cleanser of this same line , then Garnier Oil Control (won't buy this again it has alcohol on it, shame) and this gel 2x a day. It is a bit sticky but it does the job, then Oxy5 on spots at night only. After 5 days my face clears up, no more pesky pimples. After 10 days I stopped using the gel now and still using the cleanser.

I have oily, sensitive, acne prone. silicone ingredients such as dimethicone is deadly for my skin, I break out easily with butylene glycol too. basically I break out from alot of ingredients.
The reason why I bought this is because I've heard wonderful reviews about this moisturiser. went to search for the ingredients present inside and am amazed that they r 100percent non comedogenic! that is rare. so I gave it a shot, I hope it works well. it feels good on my skin.
I will keep you guys updated.
UPDATE: as promised, Im here to update about this product. It has not let me down, it is a good moisturiser. I use it under my make up, I like this product!

I thought that this was going to be the perfect basic moisturizer for my combination, sensitive, acne-prone skin, but I was sadly mistaken. It did provide nice lightweight moisture, but it made my skin flush. I kept using it for about a week, to see if the flushing would stop, but then I broke out, and I had to give up on this product. It was too much trouble to send it back to Pharmamundi, so I just used it up on my arms.

I like this a lot. I have pretty cranky skin, many products cause irritation and redness or else break me out. This does neither, plus in fragrance-free and pretty inexpensive (I purchase from feelunique.com , who offer free worldwide shipping).

I think this product may be for extremely oil skin. I have moderately oily skin and read all the great reviews on this site about it. I bought it and when I put it on, it made my face feel incredibly tight. The texture of my skin was very coarse and rough after putting it on, especially around my nose. Through out the day my skin continued to feel really tight (thought the gel did give me a matte finish). It made my skin very red too. Not the best product :/

Best moisturizer I've found for oily, acne prone skin. It literally goes on like a thin watery gel and sinks in right away. Keeps my skin soft & glowy. WARNING: do not buy this product from pharmamundi.com! They never sent me my order and I had to issue a dispute with paypal to get my $$ back. I later found out from Sebamed that they are not an authorized reseller. Now I buy it thru other sites.

The only moisturiser my skin can tolerate right now. It keeps the shine away and doesn't exacerbate my acne situation. It's also very affordable. The only con I can think of is that it leaves my skin feeling quite dry during the winter, but that's still preferable to the oil slick I'm usually dealing with. Definite HG material.
Update: My skin now starts to feel prickly and hot whenever I apply this. I have yet to find a moisturiser that I don't react to in some way :(
Downgraded to a 3.

My skin is oily and prone to acne which aggravates when I'm stressed or when I eat a bad diet. Since I use a retinoin creme on my face for hyper-pigmentation, my skin got quite reddish and dull in complexion recently.
This product is a simple yet an effective addition to your skin care regimen to soothe any irritation and dullness of your complexion. It has great formula which mainly consists of Aloe vera, glycerin and hyaluronic acid and this simple formula helps your skin to get away from damage caused by irritating make up or skin care products.
It's consistency and smell is quite same with the properties of pure Aloe Vera gel. It smells like it and feels like it which leaves a thin non-oily film on your skin, but it didn't cause any further break outs for me nor did it give any heavy feeling. If you have ever applied aloe gel you'll know what this is like.
Overall this gel soothes and moisturizes your skin better than most of the oily high-end moisturizers and it has a non-heavy simple formula to keep your face supple throughout the day.

UPDATE #2 - (4/15/12) - I'm giving this one more try. UPDATE (1/22/12) I gave this gel a good test run. While I think it's very hydrating and I love that it dries down quickly, I also unfortunately had a bit of a SD reaction, very similar to ones that I get when using HA serums (Skinceuticals for ex.)....small pesky peely flakes on my nostrils. Not terribly noticeable but annoying. I don't get this reaction from Face Reality's Hydrating Emulsion, so I've returned to using it. My guess is that there just enough more HA in the Sebamed compared to the FRHE to tip the scales. I'd still give it a big thumbs up for most all other skintypes. The only other possible culprit could be the sugar or sorbitol in the formulation. Does it feed the yeast/fungus associated with seborrheic dermatitis? I don't know....ORIGINAL REVIEW: Got this gel about two weeks ago from pharmamundi.com (Hollywood, CA) for under $13 + sh. I felt I need to finally try it since I've been recommending it as an option as a great hydrator for sensitive, acne prones. Thumbs up so far.....very light weight, sinks in relatively quickly, not sticky like another favorite, Face Reality's Hydrating Emulsion.....probably since it has less glycerin and NO hydroxycellulose. Will update at a later date.

Lovely non cloging hydrator at a dirt cheap price , never fails me love mixing it with other lotions because I find it makes them better , I used to love skinceuticals b5 gel , and this is prety darn close , but for the price it wins hands down.
