I ordered it about a year ago, and now got back to buy a new one. It's my favorite ever: does not increase breakouts, does not leave the skin dry or shiny, perfect base for my makeup! Also, if I put it on before sleep, my skin looks much better in the morning! And it feels great! If you are looking for something to treat acne - it's not the right product for you, in my opinion, you will need to get something with salicilic acid or similar ingredients. This product is first and foremost a moisturizer, and it does hydrate skin wonderfully! I have always had problem skin, and about 2 years ago my breakouts turned so bad, that I would cry and refuse to leave the house. I've tried all sorts of things, but it seems like all these issues come from within and can't be permanently healed by any topical treatment. For the last year I have used this moisturizer, an alcohol-free toner and a bunch of essential oils ( EOs are my one and only tool to actually fight off bacteria). My face cleared up wonderfully, and I honestly think this cream helped a lot by keeping my skin fresh and hydrated, so my oil glands didn't have to work so hard! :) I highly, HIGHLY recommend this product for problem, oily and combination skin, but as a MOISTURIZER, NOT AS AN ACNE TREATMENT ! :) :)

Very nice cream. Thick but light. Hydrating but not oily. No fragrance but the smell is quite nice I don't know what ingredient inside gives this fresh and cool scent. Finally, it does reduce the sebum production I can feel with using only two weeks. It contains several herbal extracts that are powerful to control sebum but the theory is different than salicylic acid. For example the lilac extract contains super potent 5a reductase enzyme inhibitor. This enzyme with androgen are the root cause of acne. So it does not harm the skin(does not ruin skin barrier like salicylic acid does) but does calm the excessive sebum gland. So I buy again now,,, wonderful. ------------------------------------------------/ No! This is my previous five stars comment. However they changed their formula terribly now! They put Chlorella extract in very behind and even lilac extract to the end of ingredients list nearly 0.001. And they cancel a lot soothing ingredients like fermented sugar and probiotics comparing to their very beginning formula. I'm so disappointed that they've changed the formula so often for generating more and more profit by compromising the quality of product! Truly disappointed! Remind me California baby brand, all of them have done the same cheating thing cancelling and diminishing costly stuffs. That way I have to change my choice to another brand who give reasonable amount and species of ingredients. If no found I will even do it myself directly buy ingredients DERMASYR 10 (lilac extract), a trade name under Sederma and Dermochlorella (chlorella extract), a trade name under Codif France. If the concentration is so tiny there will be no effective unless I know how much percent adding by myself.

Read some good reviews of this product and had high hopes for it, but it turned out to be a complete dissapointment. I have combination skin, with a very very oily T-zone. Not only did this product not help the oiliness, but it seemes to have made it worse. I used it for a good month, thinking it may get better with time, but it did not. Also the consistensy is pretty thich, so I found it a bit difficult to distribute it on my face evenly, and it does not absorb very well, leaves the face feeling somewhat sticky. Claims to help with blemishes, but it did not. I do not recomend this product, waste of money.

This product is quite disappointing. It is greasy and doesn't offer any oil control at all. Worst of all, it caused breakouts.

Do not use any of Acure products. They'll destroy your face. Save your money.

My t-zone recently went oilier than it used to be and I ordered this in hope it would matify and moisturize the skin. But like for some reviewers it didn't work for me either and in fact my forehead and nose became even worse and I even started noticing blackheads which I normally don't have. I was using it as a night cream for about two weeks and got quite disappointed. The two things I really liked was the smell which is very fresh and nice and also the light texture. Maybe it works for very oily skin but I don't recommend it for normal to oily skin.

This lotion did not work for me at all. The day I used it, my face felt like it had a sheet over it and my skin couldn't breath at all. It made me sweat like crazy and the oiliness was worse than usual. It was like no air could reach my skin to cool it down. Fortunately, iHerb is letting me return it so I will be able to get a portion of my money back (minus shipping costs).
