Before moisturizing, wash your face with Control Corrective Cucumber Bead Cleanser to create a clean surface.

Control Corrective

Birchbox Breakdown

It’s time to take control and show your overactive oil glands who’s boss—and this lightweight oil-free lotion is just the product for the job. It balances out too-oily skin as it hydrates, calms, purifies, and repairs.

How it Works

Made for normal to normal/oily skin, this silky formula packs a powerful antioxidant punch, working hard to both moisturize and reduce sebum imbalances. Aloe vera calms overactive skin while antimicrobial emollients work to hydrate and heal.

Apply a dime-sized amount to freshly cleansed skin.

Smells Great
Sampled

I really like this lotion. Its lightweight and doesn't leave my skin looking oily. Left it feeling soft and by end of the day it was still not oily.

Great for Allergies!
Purchased

My entire office suffers from allergies. I bought this and the cleanser and got my order at work. All ten of us immediately used it and found it was a great follow up to the cleanser. No one had puffy skin or red splotches all day. The only problem? I had to steal my bottle back!

Dries, not Moisturizes

Like the title says, rather than moisturizing, for me, my skin was still quite dry. I like practically scent less, and non irritating. The sample was too small and is oil free but sometimes, a little bit of essential oils are good.

Lightweight and not sticky

I liked this lotion, it was lightweight, not sticky, I feel like the sample could have been larger. I felt like my skin was my more supple after using it and less chapped!

Oil free

I liked this lotion, but it dried my skin out after a while because it has no oil and my skin is dry. I did like the scent however. If you have oily skin this would be a must have!

This is the only face lotion I want to use now!

I did leave a review on the facial cleanser that I pair with this amazing facial lotion. My skin is sensitive to say the least and I was a little hesitant to try anything out of my usual routine. But I did and it was so worth it. The lotion is light, non greasy, smells fresh and balances my oily spots. Out with the old and totally in with the new!

sample too small

I think I need more sample to really see how well it works. The lotion was light, not too creamy. It smells nice, like the scrub. cucumber scent is refreshing.
