                    I have tried countless oil-free and paraben free moisturizers and this is the best! It's oil-free, smells great, lightweight and moisturizes so well. My skin has definitely improved. I have sensitive skin and oil based products break me out, so this moisturizer is great for both issues. It absorbs quickly and I haven't had any dry patches since starting it. I'm on my second bottle - the first one lasted about 3 months using it morning and night. You don't need much, a pump, maybe two.

                        The BareMinerals Smart Combination Smoothing Lightweight Emulsion should be a good option for you as it is oil-free and also replenishes hydration to your skin. It should also not make your skin oily.

                        The BareMinerals Smart Combination Smoothing Lightweight Emulsion should be thin, but not like water. We would recommend shaking before your next use. We recommend consulting with Ulta with your receipt for an exchange or the brand directly with your proof of purchase in case you run into any other issues with your product.
