I originally wanted to purchase an oil free moisterizer that I received as a sample, but after seeing the heavy price tag for such a small amount, I opted for a less expensive one. After reading some of the reviews and loving other Kiehl's products, I decided on this one. You get a large amount for the price. There isn't really a smell and absorbs nice and quickly. The texture is somewhat thick compared to other oil free face lotions, but didn't make a difference once applied. I didn't even expect it to really control my oily t-zone, but it does...all day and all night! I guess the only downside for me is that it doesn't have any SPF, but my makeup does, so it's fine.
