Birchbox Breakdown

Moisturizing oily skin may sound counterintuitive, but hydrating with the right products is key to stopping breakouts in their tracks. This oil-free moisturizer harnesses the acne-fighting power of salicylic acid to penetrate pores, eliminate excess oil, and prevent blemishes. Naturally antibacterial cinnamon bark and ginger root extracts soothe and balance, leaving skin hydrated with a smooth, matte finish.

How to Use

Cover clean, dry skin with a thin layer of moisturizer one to three times daily. To avoid excessive drying, start with one application per day and gradually increase use over time.

Works great

I'm 38 and just started to get cystic acne about a year ago. It was horrible and hurt like crazy. I read the reviews on this product and decided to give it a try. It took about a month, but it did end up clearing everything up. I haven't had a breakout at all in the past month (I've had it for 2 months). A little bit goes a long way. I purchased the moisturizer, facial cleanser, and spot treatment.

I have been in search of a moisturizer and have tried so many products. This one is perfect!!! Keeps my skin from getting too oily throughout the day, prevents breakouts, AND moisturizes. I don't know how they came up with this but it is amazing, highly recommend.

Amazing! The product I've been searching for...

Was really struggling with adult cystic acne, and balancing salicylic acne treatments with moisture for my skin, and this product does both things in one. Haven't noticed any pore reduction yet (its only been about a week of use), but all the acne I had when I started use is basically gone.

Love it!

I started using this moisturizer 2 months ago. I stopped getting cystic acne and my face as never looked better! I have very oily skin in the summer and this has helped to keep it matte, but not dry either. Definitely recommend this to someone with adult acne like me!

Goes on easy, but makes my skin kind of greasy in the morning. Didn't do anything for my breakouts.
