Rated 4.4 out of 5 stars
Most Helpful Positive Review Great for ache prone sensitive skin!!
I TOTALLY disagree with the other review on this product, it works really well with keeping your face from getting oily and shiny. I wash my face with Effaclar Purifying Foaming Gel first and then use this moisturizer and let me tell you after a week there is a big difference. I have rosacea and very sensitive skin and this stuff is so gentle and has improved my skin in a week of using it in the morning and at night after first washing my face with the purifying gel.
Most Helpful Critical Review Face still oily
I've known LaRoche Posay for awhile & was hoping this was effective in dealing with my oily / combination skin. But, my face got oily after a few hours of using. Returning it & not buying it again. Seems the only thing that works for me is oil control moisturizer by Mario Badescu.
Reviewed by 679 customers Does what it says but also has a downside
Ariana from NC
I really wanted to love this moisturizer, on one hand it does what it claims, it cuts down on my shininess and does minimize my pores a bit. BUT on the other hand it also pills really badly on my skin 😩 this could just be a problem specific to me as I apply this over top a hyaluronic acid serum and a thin layer of differing gel but it completely ruins the pros of the product for me. It's impossible to apply a clean layer of make up when your moisturizer is pulling all over the place. Bottom line is I wouldn't repurchase this again but it could work for some people!
Non-greasy primer-like feel
Wellina from undisclosed
Somewhat small product amount. Goes on smooth with a definite dimethicone/primer-like feel which is not a bad thing. No problems with greasy or sticky feel. Did not cause me any breakouts which is the biggest plus in my book!
I would buy this again

My 22-year-old daughter loves this moisturizer. It moisturizes without any negative affects - she has acne.

I love this moisturizer! I have oily/combo skin and this is great for controlling my oily t-zone. It also has not broken me out and has a very very light clean fragrance to it. My ONLY complaint is that the tube is so small! I use it twice daily, morning and night. I use about a marble sized amount per application. So far it's lasted me a couple weeks!
Karol from Hawthorne, NJ
great product doesn't leave your skin oily and it moisturize very good
Did not keep oil at bay.
anonymous from OH
This is not greasy, does not clog pores, and no strong scent that I appreciate. However I will not be purchasing again as it's expensive for such a small amount and I begin to see shine within an hour and within three hours I'm an oil slick. It does hold the oil at bay a little but not enough to justify buying again. However I could see how it would help someone with normal skin to stay matte.
The cream balls up on the face
v1113 from undisclosed
The cream balls up on the face even though I don't apply any other products before it. It does have a mattifying effect.
anonymous from South Carolina
Just took a few days for skin to appear less oily. Only takes a little and leaves face feeling soft and smooth.
Love this moisturizer!
Mily from SC
I use it AM and PM. Love the fresh feeling and helps with my oily skin.
Ended up returning because the product pilled so badly
Allison from Saint Paul, MN
Product felt great on. It was lightweight & did help to reduce shine. However, due to the silicones in the product it pills so if you attempt to put any concealer over it, the product will flake & peel off. Doesn't matter how light of an application you use.
Not worth the price
Designdesign23 from California
I tried La Roche-Posay products after switching up my skin care routine. While this product wasn't as damaging to my skin as the other two, it didn't help. This moisturizer is too expensive and my skin was dry after I applied a few pea sizes. The amount required to keep your sky hydrated (temporarily) means you'll run out of the product very soon.
Love everything about it!
anonymous from Glendale, CA
I've been using this product for one week now and I can totally tell the difference. It's not sticky and thick that it's good for everyday use.
Best and most effective moisturizer I've ever used
anonymous from WI
I love this moisturizer. I have struggled to find one that would keep me from turning into an oil slick within 2 hours as I have very oily skin. I still get flaky spots though so need something light and non-greasy. I have been using this for a little over a year now and the few times I have run out and needed to squeak by on something else temporarily, I go back to being shiny and greasy within just a few hours. This absorbs quickly and easily and never feels greasy. I am a fan for life!!!
acne prone skin
anonymous from undisclosed
perfect for my pores and take away its oil ... pricey for size but with the effect... its worth! please don't ever take away it's quality...
huaa from florida
i bought this at a french pharmacy which was cheaper than on the website but once i run out i'll probably pay the full price because it's so good! I have combination skin so i like just putting about a half pea sized amount on my t zone which helps a lot with the oiliness of my face. I would definitely recommend!

I love this moisturizer it change my life but they should make this lotion bigger.
Lorena from Charleston,SC
using very little I reach the promised result. great product
Carrie from Minnesota
I have never, ever been able to use a moisturizer because they are too heavy and within an hour my face feels like an oil can.
I saw this product in an online search and thought I'd try it. Am I ever glad I did. I am also using the Effaclar acne line. I put this moisturizer on after I use the cleaner and toner. The moisturizer cut down my oil by 90%. It doesn't take much, I use maybe 2 pea-size drops for my whole face and that is plenty. I'm so happy with this product and that I finally found something that helps.
Seth from Los Angeles, CA
I was using this in the morning and it leaves a great finish on your skin - non greasy, absorbs quickly and I do enjoy the fragrance (though fragrance is unhealthy.) But now I prefer to use a sun protective moisturizer instead. The bottle is also TINY and quite expensive for the small amount of product. This seems like it would be great for really sensitive and oily skin but I would not repurchase unless it was on sale.
Aidee K. from La Quinta, Ca.
Love the texture and feeling after use, great results.
Moisturize for oily skin
Kulloabaez from New Jersey
It is great for oily skin, it feels very nice on your skin, feeling fresh
Baseball mom from Tennessee
I have really oily skin that is hard to control. I don't really have a lot of acne just hormonal. I've been using this for a about a month now and love this! It has helped my skin to look even and definitely helps control the oil and shine. By the end of the day my skin has a nice dewy glow, not overly greasy like it use to. Same thing in the morning. My skin now looks super healthy. Many have complained about pilling, I have only noticed that when I haven't had a good exfoliation and/or if I use to much. A little does go a long way, but even though a little goes a long way I agree with most that the bottle could be bigger for the price.
Melissa A from Los Angeles, Ca
I love this moisturizer! I usually will wash my face and it will feel super dry so I moisturize but then through out the day my skin will look super oily. This moisturizer leaves me feeling hydrated but leaves my skin with a satin finish. Love love!
Not Matte Finish
Dee Cal from Huntington Beach, CA
Not a matte finish. I have tried many many products and this will be another that is a tried and failed. However, the good news is I also tried the primer with spf and a matte finish from this company and it worked all day. That stuff is amazing, so skip this product and go switch over to the primer if you are looking for something that is truly a matte finish.
Vane from Va
It is light and keeps my face oil free. It's good.
