Abit about me: I have always had very oily skin and find that sometimes it becomes manageable but other times (in hot weather, too much central heating, eating dairy and fat), my skin goes out of control and all I want to do is wash my face.In the last 15 years, the only products that I have found that help are the Boots No.7 beautifully matte primer (now sadly discontinued, silicol skin (discontinued) and Shea Terra Black soap).Having oily skin is the reason I am unable to wear foundation, even the ones that are supposed to stay matter for 18 hours become oily in my t-zone area. The best make up for me is Karin Herzog Egyptian Earth Powder. Better than Bare Minerals and all the other popular brands.I purchased this oil control gel with high hopes. I have used it for 3 days and my skin is the worst it has ever been. It did not control the oil, in fact it made me even more oilier. My face looked unsettled and blotchy, I couldn't wait to get home and wash my face.So, the hunt continues.

This is so so good. This feels very similar to PTR Glycolic acid mositurizer I used to use years ago, but this is even stronger at 15% compared to PTR's 10%. My main skin concerns are dry patches, anti-aging and occasional acne. I use it every other day alternating with my Tazorac and this routine works very well for me. My face feels smooth, plump and glowy. It's only 1.4 oz, but you only need a tiny bit because it spreads very well. I've used mine for 2 months so far and I haven't even finished half of it. Highly recommend this if you're looking for a chemical exfoliant in your routine.

I warmly recommend this, if you feel your skin can use some slow exfoliating (which is what AHA basically does).It also has unbelievable affect on old whiteheads.I've had my share of disappointments from expensive products claiming "micro this, scientific that" with only minor results. Exfoliation is more proven, I'm just sorry I didn't bother to take before/after pics, since I wasn't expecting this.Just two words of caution: (1) The new skin layer is sun-sensitive, as you can expect, so I wouldn't use it during our Australian summer. And regardless of AHA, never ever forgot your sunscreen.(2) It took me about 4 weeks to really notice the effect, so it's not ideal for someone seeking last-minute beauty tips, say, for a big event next week.

I got this free in a gift set a couple years ago and i've been using it ever since. It's my go-to cleanser for the cooler months. In the summer I use the Neostrata oil free gel cleanser. It pumps out a thick rich foam that lathers well and cleans off my makeup without stripping my skins moisture. It contains 3% glycolic acid which is good because I have hard well water and it helps keep mineral residue from sticking to my skin. I stock up after Christmas when all the gift sets go on sale. I've been a faithful user of Neostrata products including the glycolic renewal cream for many years and it shows. When I tell people i'm 38 they are shocked and immediately ask me what I use.

This is a nice refreshing gel non-foaming cleanser. I got it free in a gift set. Anyone with dry skin would benefit from this cleanser since it so mild. You definitely need a makeup remover before you use this because it's not going to dissolve a a full face of makeup. I prefer the foaming cleansing water over this.
