I’ve heard amazing things about this moisturiser and I was so excited to try it! Unfortunately it has left my skin feeling greasy and dehydrated. Even though they’re made for this purpose, I’m finding that gel/water creams just don’t work for oily skin.
I wanted to love it but I just don’t think I can! It took me forever to find a basic moisturiser that is fragrance free/essential oil free, non clogging, oil free and no crap ingredients or preservatives. I love it’s simplicity however I feel it is failing at its most important job. Moisturising! I have combination skin and only my forehead gets a bit oily the rest of my face is pretty normal.. but I found this did not give enough hydration.. particularly if using a chemical exfoliant beforehand! This moisturiser did not add enough moisture and nourishment to support a routine that uses drying products like exfoliants. Certainly not suited for dry skin types. I use a hydrating toner and serum beforehand and I feel this product doesn’t ‘seal it all in’. Really oily skin types might find it ok as it does sink in a really well without any greasiness.
