This stuff is awful. I used it for one day and already noticed my pores getting clogged and small pimples starting to form. My face feels like sandpaper and it was already recovering from another moisturizer I had to discontinue because THAT one was also clogging my pores, but not as quickly as this one did. So you want my advice? Well, if you're acne prone, go with one that doesn't have oil, doesn't have fragrance, and is dermatologist RECOMMENDED. Not dermatologist tested. This really isn't enough for those who want a moisturizer that will work wonders at protecting your skin and keeping it clear. Gave it one lippie because it does a darn good job of controlled oil, but at a price. Looks like my search for another HG moisturizer continues. It sucks I didn't even keep the receipt. I'm calling Biore!

This product is not for oily skin types who are also acne prone. I started using this moisturizer in the summer after I came down with an allergic reaction to the moisturizer I used to use. That moisturizer was Purpose Dual Treatment Moisture SPF 15. While using that, I had the best skin of my life! This product sorta ruined that. Now everytime I look in the mirror I see all these whiteheads and small pimples on my cheeks. I never used to get pimples on my cheeks! This left me a little depressed and a bit agitated. I went ahead and called the company and asked if there was any oil in the product. The lady who spoke with me said there were some traces of oil and recommened I discontinue use. So for all us oily skin types with acne-prone skin, try using a non-comedogenic, oil-free moisturizer. Right now I'm still on the search for a new one and hope to end that search some day soon. Best wishes!
This stuff is da BOMB! I use it every day, morning and night. Ever since I started using this cleanser, my oily face has became smoother, cleaner, and less irritated. A total step up from the days of white heads and "scruffage" as I call it (i.e., rough feeling skin due to abrasive cleansers). I definitley recommend the bar and not the liquid cleanser. The liquid cleanser has SLS which can be pore clogging.

Great eye-makeup remover. I have blepharitis due to over-wearing my contacts sometimes and leaving eye-makeup unchecked. This stuff removes all the dirt and makeup at the end of the day. It does feel oily after use, but it doesn't sting like Almay and contains no fragrance. Definitely would recommend.
