I started using this in the summer and loved it. It's lightweight and does not make me oily at all. Now as the weather gets colder, unfortunately this is not moisturizing enough for me (and it's the first time i've formed that sentence ever, since i have really oily skin) and my skin started flaking. Great moisturizer for oily skin, but not effective in the winter.

I've been using this product along with Bellaboo's Clean Skin Facial Wash and Facial Exfoliator. Being a 15 year old teen with mild to moderate acne, I have to say I really like it! I have combination skin; I have dry patches on parts of my forehead and my cheeks, but also oily at times on other parts of my forehead, my nose, and my chin. My skin is kind of temperamental and seems to shift from normal to oily but dry in some places.
Anyway, this product moisturizes lightly and leaves a clean non-heavy feeling on your skin, and feels slightly cooling and fresh. It spreads really well (a little bit goes a long way) and doesn't sit on top of your skin or feel heavy in the least. I find it kind of impossible to over apply this; even if you did put too much it wouldn't feel heavy or greasy at all.
The scent reminds me of a mixture of essential oils, and it doesn't bother me. When you put it on it leaves your skin feeling moisturized but not oily. It helps my dry patches without making me break out or turn into a grease pot, which I really love.
The reason I picked up this product in the first place is because of the fabulous ingredients! I wanted to try something non-harsh, sulfate free, and natural. If you want the ingredients here they are:
Purified Water, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis Oil (Sweet Almond), Cetearyl Alcohol, Ceteareth 20, Macadamia Ternifolia (Nut) Seed Oil (Macadamia), Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil (Jojoba), Aloe Vera (Aloe Barbadensis) Extract (Aloe Vera), Hippophae Rhamnoides Oil (Sea Buckthorn Berry), Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, Cetyl Alcohol, Glycerin, Tocopherol (Natural Vitamin E), Dimethicone, Methyl Glucose Sesquistearate, Oenothera Biennis Oil (Evening Primrose), Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Water (Orange Flower), Cananga Odorata (Ylang Ylang) Flower Oil (Ylang), Pelargonium Graveolens Oil (Rose Geranium), Rosa Damascena (Bulgarian Rose) Flower Oil (Rose), Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil (Lavender), Carbomer, Sodium Hydroxymethylglycinate, Potassium Sorbate, PEG 20 Methyl Glucose Sesquistearate, Lactic Acid
You might see sweet almond oil in the beginning of the list, but like I said it doesn't clog my pores. I'm not REALLY oily though, as in my face isn't so greasy that I shine in the light or anything, so I'm not sure how people with super oily skin would react. Personally I think it's such a light moisturizer that you would be alright, but if you had skin that oily I doubt you would need moisturizer unless you had random dry patches like myself.
Lastly, I just want to make it clear that this is no miracle product. It didn't cure my acne, but in conjunction with the two other Bellaboo products I mentioned it toned it down a good amount. It's a pretty mild moisturizer but it's great for combination/normal skin I would say. So, give it a try! It runs for $12.99 on drugstore.com which occasionally has Bellaboo promotions like "Buy one Bellaboo product and get a free Bellaboo facial mask" which I would say is pretty tempting. However when they don't have those freebies, which is most of the time, Ebay is your best bet. I got mine from a seller called rdmes who I found stocks the Bellaboo face wash, moisturizer, and exfoliator most of the time, but not all the time. I bought mine for $4.99 plus $2.99 shipping which is a total of $8, saving you $4. So go with ebay for a cheaper deal. (:

I have sensitive, acne-prone skin. I am currently on Dan Kern's Regimen. Most moisturizers just make my skin greasy and flaky. I was using Clinique's Dramatically Different moisturizer and Acne-Free's moisturizer with the addition of jojoba oil. While in a Giant Eagle Market District, I saw this in the skincare section. This already has jojoba oil in it. So I thought, why not try it? (it is only about 50 cents more an ounce than Acne Free's which is way less than Clinique's). I have had it for two weeks and enjoy it. There are essential oils in it, so it has a scent, not exactly pleasant nor unpleasant. It seems to moisturize better, I have been able to increase the amount of bp used since buying this.
EDIT: Still enjoying this over a month later!
