Honest reviews


Not great for oily/combo skin

There has been so much hype about argan oil, but unfortunately this just doesn’t work for my face. The oil control factor was short-lived and the texture didn’t work at all for using under mineral makeup. This cream very quickly caused whiteheads and left my skin blotchy and bumpy. However, I love this brand’s pure argan oil as a body moisturizer (a few drops go a long way).

This product works so well – it has a fresh lemony scent, and lathers nicely. I do feel like it does a great job cleaning my skin – I have had no issues with residual makeup and it is gentle enough to remove eye makeup too! it is all organic, which I also love and the price is awesome!

Best oil control moisturizer I’ve ever used.

I love this moisturizer! I’m 42 with combination acne-prone skin. My T-zone is an oil slick! I have tried other moisturizers that were supposed to control oil and they either don’t work or feel really dry and flaky on the skin, which makes it hard to put primer and/or makeup on. This moisturizer has a nice pleasant scent, is moisturizing to my drier parts and does a fine job of controlling oil in the oily parts. The fact that is has acne-fighting ingredients and anti-aging properties is icing on the cake for me! I definitely recommend.

great stuff!

I like the way this feels and smells. I like the pump; 2 pumps does my whole face. I will try other products By Acure because of the excellent quality.

Reduces oil

This is a light day cream that definitely helps control oil. I wear it under my foundation. I recommend it!

Not sure; no decrease in acne and face feels dry

I’ve been using this for several weeks now and I really don’t think I like this moisturizer. First, my face feels pretty dry and tight after application. Second, I was hoping i would see some decrease in breakouts based on the description but I don’t see any change at all. I know sometimes it takes a while of continued use to see some real change, but I’ve been through almost the entire tube at this point. Considering the hefty price tag, I don’t think I’ll be buying this again. For reference, I have combination skin (slightly oily nose, forehead, dry everywhere else and prone to acne).

Good lotion so far

I have been using this lotion for about a week. The lotion is very lightweight , The smell is a bit too natural for me , But it seems to control my oily spots and keep my breakouts less.

So far so good

I’ve been using this cream for about a week and like it a lot. I have a classic t-zone face, oily nose, forehead, dry cheeks. I was looking for a moisturizer that would not make my make up slideoff by midday and so far this cream helps with that a lot. Most oil controlling creams are gel-like serums but this is an actual cream which I prefer. My face is noticeably less shiny and my make up is staying on better so I’m not having to dab my face during the day. For the price, it’s doing a better job than Dr Perricone and Clinique oil control creams. A great find without all the chemicals. I will continue to use this.

Very nice

This is a thick and luxurious face moisturizer which provides a slightly matte finish. Smells and feels great, and moisturizes well. I didn’t notice it cause additional acne breakouts. I don’t know what the stem cells do but it sounds good. I ran out and am using another products that I don’t like as much. I will buy this again soon.
