    This moistureizer is awesome. I have very oily, acne prone skin and am really afraid of using new products incase of breakouts. This has also helped my severe dry areas around my nose, awesome!

        I usually get the SPF 30 and accidentally grabbed the SPF 17 and WOW. I really like how the SPF 17 spreads more evenly and absorbs well into my face and doesn't leave it greasy. Turns out the SPF coverage is sufficient since I use it under a BB cream that has SPF as well. Using both does not make my skin greasy and my skin feels and looks great.

          I bought this because the Ulta lady reccomended it to me when i told her I have combo skin: oily T-zone and the rest is normal. This stuff is so good. It keeps me matte and also moisturizes my skin really well. The only 'con' I can think of is the size of the bottle. Its kinda pricey for such a small moisturizer. But other than that it keeps me matte all day. At the end of the day I barely have oils on my face. Great stuff!

              I do not like the smell at all. And I feel it is a bit oily, but it does not make me break out and it does help in healing my acne scars and upcoming blemishes.

                For over a year I've had horrible hormonal acne. I've tried several moisturizerizers including moisturizers that my dermatologist suggested for me to use. I've disliked all of them. They would always cause more acne. I've been using this over a week and I've not had a breakout. Not even one blemish. I apply it before I go out to run each morning. It's a wonderful moisturizer and sunblock!

                  • Q:

                    I will be out in the sun almost every day this summer, so I am looking for a good SPF that will go well under my regular primer (hourglass mineral primer) and foundation (urban decay naked skin) that will give me good sun protection and not effect the look of my makeup. Will this work for that? I don't want it to be too heavy & sit on top of my skin. I also looked at the oil free SPF 30, but don't want the added moisturizers, but I would still consider it if it didn't mess up the look of my makeup either. thanks!

                  • Q:

                    I got this moisturizer in the acne starter kit. I am usually a bit picky with moisturizers but ive been wanting to try something new. Im a teenager and i have acne prone skin-- would this be the best moisturizer from your line to use? im always worried that the sunscreen will give me zits even though it's non-comedogenic.

                      The Oil Free Moisturizer SPF 17 is a great option for daily sun protection, and is the lightest weight sun protection product we offer. It is our go-to moisturizer for acne prone skin. If you wanted something for morning and night use that does not contain SPF, our Herbal Hydrating Serum can be used instead.
