Good toner for oily skin. Does not over dry even with the alcohol. Not crazy about the glass bottle, but it's environmentally friendly compared to plastic, and it dispenses just fine. The smell is honestly like a garden -- very odd -- but somehow nice too. Mainly I bought this because it doesn't contain parabens which I'm trying to minimize in my routine. Other toners I like …Read more

These work great! A real life saver (or face saver)! There are two things I would like to different though. I wish they were bigger because I need about three of them for my face, and frequently the adhesive used to grab the next sheet loses its stickiness. They are almost impossible to get out (without getting out several at a time) without that. They're even worse to try to get back …Read more

If you have oily skin, I strongly recommend this product. It works wonders. My oily skin isn't an issue anymore with this on. Normally I'd be blotting by about 11 am. With this, I can get well into the afternoon, and even then, it's pretty minor shine -- just a little powder on the nose and I'm good to go. It creates a nice smooth finish too. I can even skip foundation …Read more

Great product for oily skin! Wow! It really does make and keep your skin matte. Sure, you'll have the oily breakthrough eventually, but it won't be until much later in the day, and it won't be as greasy. I'm really happy that I tried this. If you have oily skin, it is worth the price! I have been wearing it daily for at least a month with no problems, and I do tend to …Read more

This is a great basic lightweight moisturizer for oily skin. I use it during the day and a heavier moisturizer at night. I need the moisturizing because of the acne products I use. I apply a 2.5% BP product, let dry, then this moisturizer, let dry, then Shiseido sunscreen which creates a very matte finish. Once dry, I can apply makeup very easily. The PC moisturizer keeps my face from …Read more

Cleans oily skin well. Rinses clean. I have also used Cetaphil for oily/combo skin. I can't tell any difference between the two as far as the condition it leaves my skin. I use it in the morning in the shower and use Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash Daily Scrub in the evening to remove the sunscreen and makeup.

This is a great cleanser and scrub! It's very gentle but good at sloughing off the flakies. It also cleans well and has a nice lotion-like texture. I use it to wash my face at the end of the day after wearing sunscreen and makeup. I'm also very acne-prone and oily, and it doesn't cause any problems (may even help) in that area.
