Good moisturizing but it stings your face a lot in areas that are not too oily. Just use in your oily spots and you're good to go.

Initially was in love with this since it does what it promises to deliver, mattify and oil control for 8h of wear. I don't even need to put foundation on top of this. But I need to take 3 days break once I have put this on since it always causes acne all over the face. It's quite heavily scented and not meant for sensitive skin.

This is perfect in summer when you need a very light moisturiser, just enough to keep your skin comfortable after cleansing. It keeps the shine on my nose and forehead under control all day and is great under makeup. In winter when my cheeks and nose get dry this isn't enough, but I'll definitely keep using it in the warmer months.

This product has a very distasteful scent after application.

The packaging is unhygenic

The product mattifys to the point it actually collects oil, dirt and debris and CAUSES BREAKOUTS, if you are anything like me it will appear all over your cheeks, even if you never breakout there. Your entire face has small bkackheads and pustles.

I was trying to figure out what was going on with my skin and this is the problem. DON'T BUY IT

Argh. Well firstly I usually love The Body Shop, but this product is NOT one of my favourites. It has a very unpleasant, fish-like smell after application. It also feels a bit dry around my mouth area after applying.

The worst part is that I think it started to break me out, as I noticed small pimples just a few days after using this. Its definitely not worth the price.

The only positive aspect of this product is that it does mattify, especially because it gives you a slight glow without making you look greasy. It doesn't totally mattify you to a point that it makes you look like you have a white cast on your face (like some sunblock products do).

I received a substantial sample of this product and to be honest I wasn't that impressed. It is extremely light in texture and absorbed quickly but it left a weird residue on my face. Additionally my face was oily a few hours after applying so it definitely could not stand up to hot Canadian summers.

This is an ok moisturizer. I bought it when I first got into skincare and I liked it because my acne-prone skin can handle it. It's a very basic moisturizer and doesn't really do much other than add a touch of moisture. The only thing I use it for now is to dilute some skincare treatments like serums. However, I find that it makes my skin look more shiny in the morning than if I don't use it. It's not great, but it's not terrible either.

I don't have packaging problem with this since I don't have sensitive skin. Just started using this and it smells good at first but once you're rubbing it to your face, try smelling your palm and it stinks like old fish. I don't know if that's normal but it's good on mattifying my face so far. I think I might switch back to Olay regenerist or find a cheaper brand that has the same effect and does not stink.

Moisturises OK but nowhere near as much as BS's Aloe day cream, which seems to work much better for my rosacea, which dries out my skin.
