Best Moisturizer Ever
Purchased

Perfect for the summer when you get a little oily, this moisturizer has a great powder in it that absorbs the oil and eliminates shine. It can get a little goopy around the edges of the container if you use to much, but its my go to moisturizer.

It works
Purchased

I'm a balding man and hate that shiny look. When I put this cream on after showering, I've noticed my head is less shiny and it actually retains the moisture longer than anything I've used before. Worth a try!

Acne-Prone & Shiny Skin
Purchased

I'm acne-prone as an adult and this product does not seem to contribute to any additional pimples. I put it on in the morning and after the gym (after lunch) and get pretty good shine protection. The scent is clean and masculine. It appears a little clay-like but it goes on your skin smoothly and is easily absorbed.
