Perfect for my combination skin


This has been my go-to lotion for months, and I love it. It feels really clean on my face--not too heavy, but not too thin either. I use it after I wash my face.

Very obedient!


Love this moisturizer for my acne prone, oily skin! It does its job of moisturizing and does not clog up my pores or cause breakouts. Would recommend if you have fussy skin.



Favorite moisturizer


This moisturizer is great for oily skin because it is very light and silky. It leaves your face feeling moisturized but not looking too oily.



Great product


This is one of my favorite moisturizers because it is light and good of oily skin. I would recommend this especially for oily/combination skin.



Great for sweaty summertime!


Dont know about yall but i stay active in the summer chasing my 3 boys around! In the arkansas heat and humidity i sweat- so even tho i have normal to combination skin, i still can break out in the heat- but with this gentle formula by dermatacologica- i can moisturize my 33 yr old skin without having to worry about the dirt and sweat becoming oily (cuz thats just kinda gross) lol
