I used this product with the other products in this line. It has worked so well for me. It's hydrated my skin, while keeping it oil free.. I've been looking for a very long time for a product like this and I'm so glad I found this one.

I've only used this once, i washed my face with the clearing wash from the same product line then used this, aftrr i put my makeup on top with no primer. I normally Get shiney on my chin and T-Zone... the whole day i looked so matt! I had hardly any oil come through and my makeup looked so matt throughout the whole day didnt even need any touch ups. Only downside is it does dry very quickly and also very runny. I actually dropped alot on the floor, so be careful when taking out the bottle its very runny.
I have been using this product for the last 2 years. Prior to this my forehead was constantly oily and prone to spots. Now after using this alongside the special cleansing gel, I am very happy with my skin.
Helps keep my oily forehead skin at bay even in the summer!
This is the best product for oil control. The mattifier is nice but it has acid in it. This does the same thing but without that burn from the acid after using it a couple of times. Wonderful under makeup- the best product.
I like this oil control lotion because it's gentle but still does the job. Some oil control lotions strip my skin and leave it red and sensitive. I use this every morning after washing with the clay cleanser, and it really works well to decrease the oiliness of my skin.

I liked it, but my skin is dryer already. I liked the active moist better.
I've got combination skin so oily t-zone normal sometimes dehydrated cheeks. I find it extremely difficult to fine a moisturiser that works, either there too rich and they make me break out or too matte and they dry my skin out however with this moisturiser it works amazingly, I taught it might be too drying because it's meant for oily skins but I'm so happy it works for me, it just balances out my skin, before using this moisturiser my skin would be oily straight away after cleansing in the morning now it's just balance throughtout the day and I don't wake up with oily horrible skin in the morning, this is my favourite Dermalogica product.
My skin condition is break out and oily. My skin become better and not shiny after I use this moisturizers !love it!! ❤
