Leaves ashy 'look'/doesn't blend well

By

I have combo skin. Oily ( tzone) /normal. I live in a hot humid southern climate. Previously I used active moist which I love & will definitely return to. I tried this item due to the summer weather & more frequent exercise causing breakouts & skin congestion. My pores are smaller,definitely less congestion & my skin is less oily. I do not like the consistency because it's too liquidity making is harder to control during application. I find that a lot of product drips & is wasted. I also experience piling regardless of the amount used when used alone or mixed with spf booster which makes it difficult when I plan to apply makeup.There has been a very noticeable ashy look to my skin on occasions when I've used this product without spf booster.

This in conjunction with the medibac skin clearing wash has helped tremendously with my acne that I have been battling for 15 years. I have extremely oily skin and this is geared towards that, but I have not seen any changes in the oil production in my skin. So for fighting acne, it does that; for reducing oil production, not so much for me but it is still a great and light lotion.

This is a great moisturizer for oily skin. It's not too heavy or shine-inducing. It's very lightweight, yet still provides enough moisture.

Favorite Moisturizer

By

My introduction to this moisturizer was a sample in the Medibac Adult Acne kit - and it is my favorite find. My skin is all over the place - hormonal acne with periodic breakouts, yet dry and super sensitive. This moisturizer is gentle yet packs a punch of acne-fighting power. It is also super lightweight which is a necessity for me. Most moisturizers are so heavy and just fill up my pores, but not this one. Highly recommend.

Good Product

Let me start out by saying I have extremely oily skin !!!!!When I first used it I was amazed because it worked . My face didn't become oily for almost 4 hours ! However I realized the more I used it the less it worked but that could be due to my change in climate. When I first received it I was in Atlanta and it was relatively cool then I went to the Tropics. That may be the culprit. All in all I think its a good product and i will purchase again .

Nice and Light

By

I usually hate face moisturizers because I don't like a lot of product on my face, it always feel so heavy. This product is perfect for me because it's so light. It's not greasy at all and my face feels great after application. My only problem is after I put it on, if I'm not really really careful to rub it in all the way, it dries and leaves white streaks everywhere. Not fun.

Perfect for oily skin!!

By 

from Kentucky, USA

I was so leery to try this on my skin...I am very prone to break-outs whenever I tweak my skin-care regimen even the slightest bit...and moisturizers, in particular, make me very nervous. My skin doesn't need any additional sebum! This product is AWESOME. It's feather-light and not the slightest bit oily or pore-clogging. I am so glad that I finally found a product line that works with my problem skin. I bought the starter set with this product in it, and loved everything in the set so much that I am buying all of the full-size products! In the past, when I would get a blemish, it would be very deep and large, painful, hard to extract, and then would stay as a red spot on my face FOREVER after. It took so long for that spot to fade! Now, with the line of products for oily skin, when I do get a blemish, it is extremely small, comes to a head immediately, is easy to extract and there is NO MARK left behind!! What a relief!!! I can totally work with this!

Great for mature woman with teenage complexion

By

I LOVE this lotion! I am almost 40 years old but my face still thinks I'm still in junior high. I had a very shiny, oily complexion and was prone to whiteheads and giant undergrounds. With a few weeks of regular use of the oil control lotion (combined with dermal clay cleanser, microfoliant and multi-active toner) my skin is nice and soft and smooth, with much reduced greasiness and shine. Give it a chance--it won't happen overnight but I have been so pleased with the results. Getting rid of the giant undergrounds has taken longer, they still crop up from time to time (and I get a major breakout whenever I add a new product to regimen) but I'd say my skin is about 85% improved since I started daily use of these products three months ago. The lotion is expensive but you need so little that three months later I've probably used less than half the bottle so a little goes a long way.

  • Q:

    Can I use a moisturizer on top: I find this drys out my skin a little, especially in the winter months. I was wondering if I'd be able to use a moisturizer on top of it. If so, do i wait a little while to apply the moisturizer or do it immediately after I apply the oil control lotion ? Also, is this a good exfoliant for blackheads or should I be using something else ?

      Hello,

      Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Oil Control Lotion is for excessively oily skin. If it is drying, it may not be for you. You may prefer to use Active Moist alone at night. During the day, you can use Clearing Mattifier and Oil Free Matte SPF 30 to combat shine and pores.

  • Q:

    Which products should I use for different skin issues?: I have acne all over my face, the spots are large and itchy. I had a sample of the oil control lotion which helped in just a few days so I would definitely like to use that. I would like to know what other products would be useful, I am in my 40s and am wanting help with fine lines as well as the acne.

  • Q:

    Am I mistaking my skin Type??: Hi, I'm really really confused, I have naturally dry tight skin, have had it all my life.. Until of late, I don't know what has happened but my skin has become excessively oily, I mean excessive within half hour of washing my whole face is greasy.

    My old routine used to be essential cleansing solution with skin smoothing cream, I used this for years and it worked fine but my skin seemed As if it was 'drinking' the skin smoothing and I felt no moisturisation as soon as I put it on, so I changed to intensive moisture balance. This was too much for my skin, it completely broke my chin out.

    This is when it all went wrong, I suddenly have oily and very much acne skin that I cannot get rid of, I didn't know what way to turn and tried the special cleansing gel which is great but it didn't cure the oiliness or the acne. I then tried the samples of dermal clay cleanser and oil control lotion and this totally cured the problem.. Until A week later I bought

      Hello,

      Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Oiliness is typically genetic and start at puberty. Therefore, if you feel greasy, you might be using a moisturizer that is too thick for you. Additionally, when the skin is dehydrated, it produces more oil to compensate. Skin needs oil and water to be healthy. It can produce oil but it cannot produce water.

      You might like to use:
      Special Cleansing Gel- to cleanse without over drying. It will also balance the skin.
      Antioxidant Hydramist- to hydrate without oil. It will help your moisturizer absorb better into the skin as well.
      Active Moist- an oil free moisturizer to hydrate. Even if you feel oily, you must moisturize...otherwise the skin will become dehydrated and over produce oils.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind Regards,
      Bernadette
