      Great everyday moisturizer. Lightweight and doesn't make me break out. If your skin is super super dry though, might want something heavier than this. Good for combo skin like mine that's a little dry in some spots.

                      Hello Makeupmajor,

                      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.
