Most Helpful Positive Review Love it!
I read some of the negative reviews and was hesitant to purchase, but am so glad I did! Moisturizers and Primers can be expensive and this has a good price so I wanted to try it since I've liked other products from this brand. First of all I LOVE the smell! It is a fresh, clean scent, almost like a subtle men's cologne that goes away in a few minutes. I am very sensitive to smells and this did not give me a headache, wasn't strong, or offensive. It did not break me out or make my skin look or feel dry. It seemed to be both a light moisturizer and a primer in one! It helped smooth pores and fine lines and kept the shine away ALL DAY! Even after sweating my face did not appear oily. And it was not watery, but typical of a lotion - not runny and not solid, but somewhere in between. It did not run out of tube, I had to squeeze it out. I really like this product, will continue to use during Spring/Summer and will repurchase.
Most Helpful Critical Review Not-so-serious mattefier
I have combination skin (oily forehead and nose, dry cheeks & chin) and this product seemed like a good idea. I think it's good as a moisturizer, though maybe not so good (at least on me) as a mattefier.
I still felt kind of shiny after I put it on. Though you don't need to put on very much at a time -- and be careful, because it comes out of the container super fast!
It does smell super strange, and though the scent seemed to fade after a little while, I would smell it every so often.

This moisturizer has been an essential part of my skin care and beauty routine for years now. I have tried lots of other "mattifying moisturizers" and this one takes the cake. I have combination skin and this moisturizer mattifies the more oily areas and moisturizers the dryer areas. I don't know what I would do without this product!
Sarah from Texas
This is a beautiful moisturizer. It does leave a very matte finish, however, I'm always so oily that I still have a tiny bit of shine poking through.
I actually love the smell, it has a very clean, fresh smell. It has a creamy, gel-like texture and soaks into my skin so smoothly. A little goes a long way. I love this stuff, so glad I found it by accident!
Nichele from USA
For the price it's fine, but overall, I wouldn't buy it again. It doesn't leave my face matte, as it claims, regardless of whether I pair it with a retinol serum or another serum. It's somewhat thick and surprisingly thick on my face.
Vanessa from Sacramento
My face feels really dry after I use this. I have normal skin and needed an oil free moisturizer since I got lash extensions. Maybe someone with really oily skin would like this.
Especially good for "mask face"
deebee from Wichita
I am surprising happy with this lotion. It leaves my skin satiny smooth... and surprised me by priming skin for foundation. It really reduces the appearance of scars, etc. It's great for wearing under a mask since it doesn't get oily being covered for awhile. Bad smell? Huh unh. I don't get it! It has virtually no scent!
Don't buy it
:( regret from Anaheim, CA
This broke me out. My skin is not super-sensitive and oily
I have "accidentally" repurchased this like 3 times already
Olivia from new york
let me start by saying- my moisturizer collection is ridiculous. I have combo skin which will break out with too-heavy products so I really love lighter moisturizers but my skin can also get really dry if it's not hydrating enough. I bought this moisturizer several years ago and quickly realized I was gravitating towards this more than any other one I owned. I used it up pretty quickly. I then repurchased it since it's so cheap and used that one up too! I never use up products because I have so many lol. Well now I'm buying my 3rd bottle because I'm realizing that I don't loveee anything else right now. Also idk what people are saying about the scent because this doesn't smell like anything to me.
My favorite gentle, non-comedogenic moisturizer
Liv from Pittsburgh, Pa
I love this moisturizer because it is so gentle. My skin is VERY reactive/sensitive to anything I put on it. This moisturizer is light and almost airy. It blends into my skin so easily and so smoothly. It does have a mattifying effect which is nice for those with oily or combo skin like myself.
The smell that everyone is referencing is aloe vera... the moisturizer smells exactly like aloe vera gel extract. If that smell doesn't appeal to you, then I would suggest trying the other oil-free moisturizer from Formula 10.0.6.
I use it morning and night after I was my face with BLUME daydream facewash. The combination of these two products leaves my extremely sensitive oily skin feeling supple and hydrated.
Erica B from Hiram, GA
I have combination skin - can be mildly flaky if really dry, but oily in my T-zone & nose. I've had a hard time finding a face wash that doesn't leave my skin feeling tight as soon as I pat it dry, or before I even get out of the shower, and a moisturizer that doesn't make my face look & feel super greasy.
This is my first time using anything Formula 10.0.6, but I'm kind of impressed. The product absorbs really quickly, almost to the point that you feel like maybe you didn't use enough. The shine is non-existent. As some other reviews mention, there is a 'different' smell to it. I wouldn't call it fresh, or masculine, but if you are overly sensitive to smells you will probably have a problem with it. The smell does go away after a few minutes, so I am definitely able to overlook it for the plain fact that it does exactly what I want it to do. My face also doesn't feel dry or tight once absorbed.
TLDR: Truly a mattifying moisturizer, has an odd smell but can be overlooked unless OVERLY sensitive to smells.
MastiffMama from Red Cross, NC
I can't say how it performs because I washed it off immediately after I applied it. It smells like a musty old basement. Not just a faint smell, either. It literally took my breath it smelled so bad. I'm glad it was part of a B2G1 free promotion. In the trash it goes!
My favorite moisturizer!
sramirez from California
I have VERY oily skin! I've tried many brands from high end brands to drug store brands and nothing had worked for me. I came across this moisturizer and decided to give it a try. It keeps my face hydrated and completely shine free. Not to mention, very affordable!
Favorite Daily Moisturizer
Lizzie from Iowa
This moisturizer is my favorite to use in the morning, it leaves my skin feeling nice. I really like that there's bamboo in the moisturizer works well with my combination skin type. It leaves my skin texture smooth and feeling refreshed. Helped a lot with my pores and smaller blemishes.
Keeps me shine-free and smells great!
Nikki from Clearwater, FL
I was hesitant to buy this because of all the reviews saying it smelled horrible, but I needed something to help with my shine. I absolutely love this product! I think it smells fresh and agree with another reviewer that it's slightly masculine, but not strong at all. I've never liked sweet or floral scents, though, so keep that in mind. This does a wonderful job of hydrating while controlling oil that usually comes back right after washing my face.
Hold your breath while wearing
Cynthia from Tucson, AZ
Literally the worst product I've ever smelt. I'm taking this back as soon as the store opens tomorrow. Kinda smells like wet clothes that have been left in the washer. But ON. YOUR. FACE. absolutely disgusting.
Probably good but can't get past the smell
Shauna from TX
It feels decent on my skin and seems to keep the oil at bay, but it smells exactly like mildew. Just like a dirty dishrag that has been sitting out for days. It's all I can smell now. I would totally use this if it smelled okay.
Not for me
Jordan from CT
I wanted to love this moisturizer so much but I just don't. I can't put my finger on the smell but it's like plastic meets rubber meets silicone, just terrible. I might like despite the smell if it has great moisturizing capabilities but my skin doesn't feel any softer or less flaky than before. No interest in buying this again or using the rest of what I have
The smell, the horrible smell!
DesiDuke from Long Beach
I just opened this to try for the first time and the smell is seriously off putting. I put it on about 15 minutes ago and still smell it on my face! My face does feel soft and looks matte (hence the two stars) but I don't think I can handle the stench. It smells old, had I not removed the foil myself I would've thought this was opened like 10 years ago. I'm washing this off my face as soon as I'm done writing this, yikes!
ashley324 from arkansas
I was so excited about this, but am very disappointed. it stinks so bad, is super drying and doesn't moisturize at all.
"Clog-Free Pores" are a lie
nahgemryan from raleigh, nc
Bought this product for my 30 yo boyfriend who has oily skin. We recently were able to get his acne under control so I thought I would tackle the oil. This moisturizer does mattify the skin but it is NOT "clog-free" as it states on the bottle. Probably the farthest thing from it. After two days of use, his skin was broken out and his pores were clogged up. I feel horrible for even giving him the product to use.
Mich P from New Jersey
I have very oily skin, most moisturizers make my face look greasier, but this one has changed my skin care routine. My face is completely matte for the entire day AND it smells amazing!! Can't beat the price either!
ShowMe Shopper from Cape Girardeau, MO
This keeps the oily shine away longer than other products I've tried, although it doesn't last all day. It doesn't seem to play very well with some foundation. However, the price is quite reasonable.
Montana from Washington, mo
Use it as my daily moisturizer!
Total Game Changer
Peytonzee from Wisco
I absolutely love it!!!
Smells like stale cardboard, but it works
Syd from Oregon
Noticeable oil control, but the smell is so bad that I can only use it once a week.
