I like the feel of this product and the smell. I think it is very effective against acne. My skin condition changes with seasons. I initially got it for oil control in the summer (in the summer my skin is combo oily), but it made my skin drier and more oily, so I stoped using it and it was just sitting there. However, in the winter (my skin is normal/dry), I broke out quite a bit, and used this product. It greatly helped control the acne, and I didn't have any shine for a while, but after using it for a couple of weeks every day 2 times a day, my face got really dry and flakey. Overall, I think this product is very effective against acne, but does not do anything for oily skin. Would I buy again? Maybe in the winter. Pricewise, for Clinique it's OK for this amount of product. I give it 3.5 lippies!

Too expensive for such a bad quality product. It made my combination skin oily and shiny. Doesn't absorb well, and has a sunscreen smell to it. I also think it broke me out, but that might have been my diet or another new product I was trying. Might be better for dry skin.
