This even-keeled moisturizer is designed to keep your skin balanced (read: not too dry, not too oily). Ideal for all skin types, the all-natural formula hydrates without clogging pores, and it dries to a matte finish (so you don’t have to worry about break-outs or forehead shine).
This stuff takes a bit more patience for it to absorb, but once it dries, I would have no idea I was wearing lotion, except that my usually dry skin feels less "taught" without feeling greasy like it does with other creams. By the end of the day, my skin is still in good shape and I have yet to suffer a break-out.4
I originally received this product as a sample and did try it until a couple of months after I received it. I never thought to use moisturizer because I have oily skin that doesn't ever dry out but was told that using a moisturizer could control oil production. I started using the sample and before I finished the first tube I ordered a full size because this stuff works wonders for my skin.
Right off the bat the product smells really good. It's not overly fragrant but it has this nice hint to it. It may sound weird but the pleasant and light scent adds to the experience of using the product.
As a little background, my skin is very oily. I will wash my face in the morning and after a couple of hours I can start to see the dots of oil appearing on my nose as my pores go into overdrive. By 2pm I'm in full on avoid camera flashes oil mode. It's a little insane.
The first time I used this product I checked myself out in a mirror a couple of hours later and my skin looked like I had just cleaned it. By 2pm there was still only a minimal amount of oil production. It does not stop it but it seems to put it off. That 2pm oil frenzy now occurs much later in the day around 6 or 7pm. I don't have to worry about checking my face during the day anymore or have to remove excess oil several times a day.
Obviously your results may vary due to different skin types but this product has been a game changer for me. I love it.
This is a bad value compared to other moisturizers I've used. Also, there is a hint of a very distasteful odor. I may be the only one who is bothered by it, but maybe not.1
Finally a good lotion for him, now I can keep mine! He eventually tried this sample and really liked it, thanks Birchbox!
This was my favorite product in birch box this month. For the price it is a very good moisturizer, it is light, not greasy, absorbs quickly, and left my skin looking great. I really like this and it is the fraction of the price of expensive products I have used in the past.5
The product works well and smells mild, but I don't think it is any better than what I can get at my supermarket.3
I've used some face creams that provide way to much moisture and leave me feeling oily and as though if I leaned up against the mirror I'd leave a huge smear. The cream applied well and blended well into my skin and felt like it moisturized me just enough. The only downfall for me, is that the product didn't provide any spf protection and this is the only thing that prevented me from purchasing it after sampling it.3
i was using womens face cleansers and moisturizing products due to the lack of mens and this is better than most of those products by far and made for us (guys)... SCORE!!!5
I have a funky T zone with oily forehead and dry chin. I was hoping starting to use a moisturizer daily would help. After going through both bottles of the sample, I definitely didn't suffer from the dryness. Instead, about halfway through my workday I had to rinse my face off each day because I felt like I had just dipped my face in olive oil. At first I though it was just my skin over producing due to other reasons, but as soon as I stopped using the product, the oil issue stopped. I think I just need to find a different product for my skin type.3
I like that it didn't make my skin feel greasy, like most products i've tried in the past.4
