How it claims to work:

This is a lightweight, non-greasy moisturizer specially formulated for oily skin. Featured are two powerful humectants—Glycerin and Panthenol (Vitamin B5)—to deliver necessary hydration without clogging pores. Allantoin soothes as Beeswax locks all essential moisture, nutrients, and vitamins into the skin for a smooth, healthy-looking complexion.


I was excited to try this moisturizer since it was specifically for oily skin and controlling oily skin. I was working at Ulta Beauty when I first tried it, and I gave it a couple of uses before I formed an opinion on it. I even tried it with different facial washes to be sure that any effects were solely of the moisturizer. I also was able to watch my skin while I worked. Since we are required to wear makeup at work, I had to pleasure of testing it out that way as well. The moisturizer did nothing for my skin. I was completely disappointed. The moisturizer, not only didn’t “control” my oil but also, it made my face even oilier. A lot of things could’ve gone into why the moisturizer didn’t work on my skin, but I didn’t expect it to make things worse.

Ratings and Comments:
I was overall disappointed in the delivery of this moisturizer. I heard mixed reviews about this moisturizer before trying, but in desperation, I wanted to get my oil in control. I not only did not like this moisturizer, I believe it made my skin oilier.



I give this product a 1 out of 5.
