This is one of the few items i have been using for about 2 weeks or so. I decided to post this face lotion first rather than the usual steps : cleanser, toner, blah blah blah. Yes, I believe its that good. I have tried so, so very many different things that promise to help me with my ugly oily skin that i can just tell when something is working for me.

What I think:
Well i have been using this along with a ton of other junk to help my skin go back to normal and clear state! I just seem to be reacting to a lot of things lately, but this one has helped me a ton, especially because of all the salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide, retinol, glycolic acid... LOL .... that i have been slathering on my face...that stuff can be drying =D
I can honestly say that my face has not dried out from all the anti acne creams i have been using for a while. not at all. This is so light and moisturizing, It feels robust-ish but as you rub it in it soaks in and leaves a velvety smooth face....i have even skipped primer!
what i really love is the fact that it controls my oily skin and t-zone. it SERIOUSLY does. I produce so much oil on my t-zone that it could fill a McDs fryer, so when i saw what this did for me my jaw dropped. to thinh all that makeup i could have purchased instead of all those expensive primers and moisturizers.... :*(
I havr been using this in the morning only, under my Hard Candy Primer and EDM mineral foundations and it wirks great. I can see my matte face for hours and hours....and it still moisturized and soft despite acne meds. oh i adore this one....now watch my face go back to 'normal' then 'dry' LOL. I had dry skin for years. go figure!
well i rambled too much. needless to say, i am not sleepy but im tired, Physics and Chemistry are draining me. To think that i hated writing all those 10 pagers i did my last semester....i seriously rather write a paper than do Chem or Phys! Dang Med School Requirements =(
