Well, first of all; I'm 16 and I have awful hormonal acne. I used to use loads of harsh products that would dry out my skin, so I purchased this moisturizer hoping that it would help the dryness while clearing my skin.
Boy, was that a mistake. Not only did it break me out, but I'm pretty sure it's ALL fillers and chemicals -- not one artificial ingredient in there. Also, my skin has become tolerant to salicylic acid; so the percentage was not nearly enough to make any difference in my acne.
It did smell nice, though . . .

Writing this in hopes someone else has freaky skin like I do. I'm 46 and every inch of my body skin is bone dry. My cheeks are normal (drier in winter) but my nose and eyelids? Oil pits. I picked this up on a whim since I'm on a budget and it's dirt cheap. To my surprise, after two week's use, my skin is smooth and it helps control those oilies that crop up 2 hours after I put on makeup. My skin does love salicylic acid apparently. I don't get a severe tingling sensation...just a very mild cooling one. Still, even though this is great for me, proceed carefully. If you have dry skin, no (or use with a heavier moisturizer). If your skin is super-sensitive, no. But if it's like mine and slightly combination, you might want to give it a whirl. It should go without saying I do NOT use this around my eyes.

I bought this to help with some very, very minor breakouts on my jawline and temples because I thought that it would not be overly drying and that the low amount of SA would not affect my sensitive skin. Turns out I was wrong. It's *horrible*! I put it on and it burned like a chemical burn. I spent several minutes trying to rinse it all off my face and I even thought I might end up in the emergency room. It stopped burning after 10-15 minutes of rinsing with cool water (I even got in the shower just to let the water run over my face) and it left me with a layer of skin that felt hard and dry like cardboard.

Do not use this product if you have sensitive skin!!

I've actually used this since high school and always come back to it. I have had very severe acne before, and just recently it's also gotten pretty bad. And so after i wash my face and stuff i apply this only to the areas with acne. And the rest of my face i use a regular moisturizer... i find that it really helps my acne go away without really drying my skin out or making it irritated. I have really sensitive skin. And if you do you should be careful not to use to all over because it can dry your skin out. but on blemishes it really helps get rid of them without over drying everything. my husband actually stopped using his clinique acne solutions and is using this after a normal wash and we both agree that its helping out skin... i recommend using a regular lotion on the rest of your face especially if its sensitive, i use a shea butter face lotion... it has kept my skin in good condition. overall i love this product and would definately buy it again wheni run out!!!

Overall I really enjoy this product. Though it does virtually nothing to help improve your acne, it doesn't break you out or contain oil like many other moisturizers on the market. The only reason I bought this was because I get moderate dryness throughout the winter months so I need something that targeted acne-prone skin and improved my dryness.

I loved that it had a little bit of a cooling sensation on my skin --it really feels moisurized and healthy with only one pumps worth of product. This bottle seems to be a realitively small/moderate size, but it lasted me almost six/seven months when used everyday in the morning and before bed. Some reviewers claim that it has a medicinal scent but I think that they are wrong. To me it smells light, fresh, and clean.

I'm all about double-timing my products and finding new ways to use them, so I like to pump a few squirts of this into my foundation bottle to give me a lighter coverage as well as moisturize my skin while covering up problem areas.

Great Value!

I used this moisturiser in my teen years and this didn't do anything to help my skin at the time. I never had particularly dry skin, so oiliness was always an issue. This moisturiser didn't help with that or my breakouts. Never bought again, and won't. There are better products out there.

I'm not 100% sure how I feel about this moisturizer. I've used it for about 1 year now and the results have varied. When I first started using it I didn't like it much - it tingled my face (never a good sign, no matter how much you think tingling is good for your skin - it isn't!) and dried out my combo skin on the forehead and cheek area (my oiliest parts!).

After about 6 months I was still using this but only once a day in the morning, with a different more rich moisturizer at night. My skin cleared up completly and I had no blemishes or zits for nearly 2 months. Then...suddenly they all came back again. I don't know why because I hadn't changed anything in my makeup/skincare routine. Now this moisturizer doesn't do much for me at all - doesn't control my blemishes, doesn't moisturize well, doesn't spread on my face well, sometimes dries my skin out...only plus point is that it's quite cheap for 100ml.

I don't think I'll repurchase this again.

I'm pretty certain this does nothing for my skin, it definately doesn't moisturise my skin at all! it has a horrible menthol smell that irritates my eyes if it gets to close. If anything i think it actually breaks me out more. I really doubt ill be buying this again.

This product has done WONDERS for my acne-prone skin. I have been using this product for about three months now, and I have seen a great improvement in my skin. Where I used to have 3 or 4 blemishes on my face at a time, I now have maybe one small one or none at all. It feels great, and has a slight tingly feeling, and has kept my breakouts at bay. It has been moisturizing enough for the summer and autumn weather, now we'll just have to see if it holds up in the winter. If it does, this will definitely be my HG moisturizer!
