Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great value and ingredients, but got me all red It has great ingredients and it's so inexpensive that I really wanted to like it. However when I apply the lotion to my face, I get all red and burned. To relieve I have to soak my face with cold water. Maybe it's a allergic reaction, but I have no idea what ingredient can cause this, since it's the first time I've faced it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing this product is a must have! I usually breakout from any kind of moisturizer no matter what it states, even oil free. However, after putting this on, my skin was completely oil free. I'm not saying it's a miracle product, but it's definitely worth trying!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome product This product is great for oily and acne prone skin, as a black woman it's very hard to find product that prevent acne and get rid of acne without harsh chemicals. I've tried shelf acne products to acne medication prescribe by doctors it just made my skin worst. And another things I love about this product it don't leave that unnecessary oily shine like most lotion does. I would recommend this product for people who have acne problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more whiteheads The best moisturizer I have ever used. When I use other moisturizers I have many whiteheads on my face the next day. I use this after I wash my face and put tea tree oil on. I try not to use moisturizer because I do breakout but I don't need to worry about that now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from this is my new favorite moisturizer First of all, my skin is very oily. I also live in the desert, so for about 7 months of the year,my skin is oily and greasy. Since we're in the heart of summer, it's worse now. I've tried many lotions claiming to absorb oil. They've all been gimmicks. I was very hesitant to try this lotion because I thought it would work just as badly as the other one's I've tried. Boy, am I happy I took a chance on this one!! This is THE moisturizer for anyone who has excessive oiliness, like myself. It looks thick when you squeeze it out of the bottle, but it goes on very smooth. You can feel it tingle your skin in a good way. Then, poof... it just absorbs right in! Its like magic. You need to try this moisturizer!!! I wont buy anything else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for oily skin I love how this lotion gives me a matte look. I don't wear makeup and some lotions seem to worsen the look of my acne scars by giving my face an unnecessary shine, but this lotion is perfect! I also love the ingredients and the fact that there is no unnecessary fragrance. I think this is great for people with oily skin like me, but when I had dry, irritated skin (due to the overuse of salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide) it felt slightly abrasive. But when my skin came back to normal, I went back to this moisturizer and it's been awesome ever since. I purchased this because I loved the Thoroughly Clean facial cleanser, and Desert Essence has yet to disappoint me! LOVE LOVE LOVE!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only moisturizer my skin will tolerate Every moisturizer I've used has left me with more breakouts. This is the first one that actually helps prevent instead of cause! I use this twice a day and I love how my skin looks. Your skin can get a little tingly for the first couple of minutes, but its so worth it! Don't ever change this formula!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great moisture! I have been looking for a good moisturizing lotion that won't leave my skin oily or make me break out even more than I do already. This is really great stuff! My skin feels soft and matte. I work in a spa and I would by this over the products there for it's quality and price!
