First what I do like. It's a nice light weight lotion. It feels good on my skin I wouldn't even complain about it if I hadn't found it on many top lists for great matte moisturizers for oily skin searching online. . Because it's not matte and I wouldn't say it helps at all with oil compared to other way less expensive brands you can buy at Ulta - even drug store brands.
Bottom line - I wouldn't recommend this for oil control. I have to relentlessly blot my face throughout the day. If you have $40 to drop on a moisturizer and you have dry skin I would recommend it for you. It's good quality just doesn't live up to the hype for oily skin or combo skin.
