I used this entire Seaweed range from The Body Shop from the face wash in a tube, to the toner, to this mattifying day moisturizer and as well as the night moisturizer for about 1.5-2years but I honestly did not see much vast improvements to my skin, considering how much I've spent on these. I live in Singapore where the weather is warm (25c-31c) and humidity is high (70%<) and I have combination skin with oily Tzone but not to the point of having many break outs (just the occasional few pimples). Initially I thought it was because I was using it along with my previous skincare line, which was from Vichy and so I decided to switch to using the entire same line after my old skincare product was used up. Needless to say, I was disappointed with the lack of improvements after investing so much money and hope in this product. The product's claim of mattifying did not work on my skin and after barely 30mins after application, the oil shine on my Tzone emerges.

I love this moisturizer! It's my favorite because of the gel consistency and how well it moisturizes. I think it definitely mattifies my face, which is a plus for me because I have oily skin. The only thing is the price :/ I think I paid about $20 for it, and I know that a lot of people think it's not a lot but I'm a student and I don't have a ton of money to invest on a good moisturizer. I'm currently on the hunt for an affordable moisturizer that is like this one!

I got a small sample of this and liked it enough to buy the bigger tub... I liked using this best on days in the summer when it was extremely hot & humid, when normally I wouldn't have even put moisturizer on my face at all because the humidity makes my skin so oily. When it goes on (a little goes a long way), it kind of feels dry and tight after it absorbs in, but after 15-20 mins & going out in the humidity, my face felt fine. Super, super light moisturizer, smells good and didn't break me out. Not really 100% sure I'll buy again but it was very good for me for some days in the summer.

This product gives my skin moisture but it does not control my oily skin very good. It does not mattify my skin at all either. I probably will not purchase the full size anytime soon (I bought the travel size to test it out.)

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.
