I purchased this as I now have constant hormonal acne (never had it before, now have acne at 41) and this product contains no comodegemic ingredients. Whilst I was overhauling my skincare to cater for my newly spotty face, I was finding that even when a brand states that a product is non-comedogenic, they actually contained the main culprits (naughty!). After days of researching online for a moisturiser with ingredients that weren't going to clog my pores I found this product!
As it's a gel, it doesn't feel luxurious like my usual creams, and it isn't very moisturising for me as my skin is dehydrated, so I sometimes help it along by adding a touch of Safflower Oil. I use a pea-sized blob when my face is still damp from toner as I find it applies easier that way - if I use more than this amount it leaves a film (which I personally really don't like the feeling of).
I would definitely recommend this for spot prone skin that's oily, but if it's dry/dehydrated just be aware that it's not particularly moisturising, and that you will have to re-apply throughout the day if you suffer with very dry skin. I also think it may be more moisturising during Summer months.
It's been an excellent find whilst I have these issues, and I will be repurchasing as long as I have acne, but it wouldn't be my moisturiser of choice if I didn't have to worry about comedogenic ingredients.
Fast n effective
Leaves skin matte.
Holy Grail moisturiser. Hydrating, non-greasy, doesn't break me out or clog my pores.
Compliments the cleansing foam.
Does what is on the tin.
Although i would have personally liked this to have been a tiny bit more hydrating, i think if you have extremely oily skin this would work perfectly. A small amount of moisturiser is required for combination skin like myself. This gel does, however, work great at keeping those pesky spots under control, and of one does rear it ugly heal, a little extra applied to the spot itself will help clear it up in a couple of days! So cheap and free from any harsh chemicals that strip the skn that other acne products usually contain! Great products, a little more hyaluronic acid and it would have achieved 5 stars!
Have to put aquaeous cream over top to provide a better base for make up, but feels nice bit sticky, calms skin helps with redness.
I really love the product! It's made from natural ingredients and natural moisturisers. It's water based so it doesn't clog your pores. Love it!!
Slow delivery but good otherwise
This is my second time ordering this product. I have very sensitive, acne-prone skin and this is the only moisturiser I can use without my pores becoming clogged. My face does feel a little hot upon upon application, indicating some irritation, but I can live with that!
