For reference, I have very oil skin. I need all and every oil control possible! Long story short: this lotion may be TOO effective.
PROS: Nice smell, and it comes in a small travel size so you can try it before committing to a large bottle!
CONS: It's very drying - and if not drying, it just absorbs too much oil TOO quickly. My oily-ass skin has never experienced a "drying" lotion.... but this one is it! It left my skin feeling very dry, less dry than if water was applied, and with a powdery filmy feeling. While that in itself isn't horrible, what has given me the thumbs down is how it is under makeup. I used MAC Studio Fix over it, applied with a stippling brush, and it HORRIBLE! Dry, cakey, parched mess. Yuck. Normally I have to set even Studio Fix, but the lotion was SO drying that the Studio Fix literally dried to a powder dry. Touch dry. Then all day it looked bad, cakey... yes oil was less. But not worth the bad looking skin. :)
I wasn't sure if it was the Studio Fix or the lotion, so I tried it again with another moisturizer (I love the brand Derma E, a gentle natural brand!) and the Studio Fix went on wonderfully.
