This moisturizer is really refreshing, non greasy, dries pretty fast and does the job of keeping the oil away but there are way too many non natural ingredients, and the packaging is not so good because you have to dip your hands inside promoting growth of bactera... If I could find an all natural day cream like this in a squeezable bottle that would be perfect!

This is a rlly good product it contols my oil very well and I rarely have to blot in school. This product also smell great and I find it rlly refreshing on my face. The only thing I don't lime about this is the packaging its in a jar and it could b on sanatary but it has a twist cap tht it spill proof I would buy this product again and recommened it to my frwinds and family with oily skin.

horrible to wear underneath my makeup and it broke me out along my t-zone. around my nose tho, i did see tht it became more matte but with the fragrance and its ability to break me out, i wouldnt recommend buying this.

I am on my second pot of this already. I didn't think it would work, but after not having it for a few days I realized it does work. It's not 100% perfect, but you will definitely notice a difference in how your makeup wears the whole day. I have combination skin and I notice that I don't really have to touch up during the day because it keeps the oil under control. The small pots only cost $4 but a large tube is a little pricier around $18.

I bought this because I have more grease on my face than a pan after cooking bacon. So a mattifying product will always catch my eye. This moisturizer is thin & very easy to spread so to all you dry ladies, you're not going to get any moisture. But to all my very oily ladies, you're not going to be mattified. It's smells okay, not the best. Its just...okay. For $16 I think you can get something similar at walmart. It's like The Body Shop mixed a moisturizer with water to thin it out. But it's definitely not a walmart.

I haven't had it long so I'm giving it a chance, but so far with my dry skin the cream hasn't been the best. It isn't making my forehead oily which is good. It's definately not making my skin worse, but I'm not sure that it is making it better either besides the slight moisturising.

I first started using this product a few years ago (think I was about 13), when I first started getting the puberty acne. I found that at first it worked pretty well for balancing out my t-zone area and keeping away the blackheads - and I was happy with it. But for some reason I stopped using it for a little while, then my blackheads came back and I tried using it again but it did not work, unfortunately:(. When it did work though, it did just as it said, mattifying my skin, preventing outbreaks. But it was garbage after it stopped working. I really wish it still worked today. But because it at one point did work very effectively for me, I give this 3 stars. Also, because the packaging wasn't super sanitary as you had to dip your hands in the product.
UPDATE: I decided to give this product 2 stars instead of 3.. I think that the fact that it completely stopped working for me says something about it's effectiveness that it deserves a lower score. Sorry guys.

This is a very lightweight gel moisturizer, which is hydrating enough for my super oily skin while not making it extra greasy. But, it is not very mattifying either, so for me, this works great as a basic moisturizer under my sunscreen and makeup primer. Did not break me out and pricing is reasonable. A tub lasted me 2.5 months with daily (day time) usage.

First of all, I looove the scent of this! And the gel-type consistency is really nice, goes on very smoothly.
There's always a "but" in there though. For me it didn't do much. Sure, it gives a more matte look but it's not moisturizing enough for me. I have one of those odd faces that are oily and flaky on the same time (and on the same places), very hard to get into balance. So while it would work well on my cheeks during the summer, it doesn't help with flaking on the forehead and nose even in the summer. It didn't do any harm either though which is always a good thing.
I would still recommend this to people with less crazy skin then mine though! And I will definitely use this up on my cheeks and neck.

I'm currently through 2nd jar of this cream and I will definitely repurchase it again and again. It is a perfect day cream for combination/oily skin - it hydrates, so my face doesn't feel tight after cleansing (although if you have rather combination than oily skin, you probably need something richer as a night cream), has a lovely light gel texture, absorbs easily and, most importantly, totally mattifies. I would surely recommend this product.
