I will say that, I used this along side the Salicylic Acid blackhead scrub, and my face was really dry and flakey so this offered me 0 moisturization, if anything dried it out more. BUT I think this product would be absolutely AMAZING if you were not using any drying chemicals/products and just wanted a moisturiser with Salicylic Acid in it to control shine and pimples from popping up. This did break me out in a few little pimples (but they healed and went away by the next day) but I really think that was because my face was being slammed with too much Salicylic Acid and my skin was super dry and flakey from the scrub I was already using.
I have kept this in my drawer for days when I can not find time to use my scrubs or gel cleanser from the Pure Active Intense line. (Garnier)
I recommend this to people who have oily skin and are not using other drying chemicals on their faces - this moisturiser is quite drying but that would work well if your face is already quite oily :)
I love how it sinks straight into your skin and makes it feel baby bum smooth. It leaves a pleasant cooling sensation (but don't worry if this scares you, it doesn't last too long)
I have tried many different moisturisers that claim to control shine and this is the first one I have ever been vaguely satisfied with. You have to give it a good chance to see results as its effectiveness seems to build over the first few weeks with regular use but after about a month it's doing a brilliant job for me and provides a good base for make-up as well. I really wouldn't live without it now I've finally found it as it's an affordable price and does the job much better than the more expensive ones I've tried. If you're like me and have struggled for years with shiny oily skin I really recommend that you give this product a good test run as it really has made a significant improvement for me and is something I will be buying it again and again!
Ive used this product for about 2-3Months.
Bought it because another garnier moisturiser similar to this worked pretty well.
However this product struggled in moisturising my skin which would naturally reduce the "greasy" look. I even started to break out, maybe due to lack of moisture or the moisturiser itself.
Either way this product isn't good, i wouldn't use it. I think there are better brands out there.
I had given up on any kind of moisturizers, and only bought this one because I thought it was the 24H spot treatment by Garnier. I'm in France and got a bit confused by what was written on the package, haha!
Anyway, I used it for about a couple of weeks. It smells good, is easy to apply and all of that blah blah blah. It DOES remove shine and make your skin look matte, leaving you just enough time to put on your make up, until your skin is 2X oilier than it was to start with. The thing with moisturizers specifically designed for oily skin is that when they stop your skin from producing oil, the skin reacts by even producing more as there seems to be a lack of it. Or something like that anyway.
In any case, I definitely wouldn't recommend it.
When I first apply this after I've washed my face in the morning, it sinks into my skins and instantly gives a completely matte look, which is a brilliant base for my make-up. However, I have very oily skin, and after an hour (whether I am wearing make-up or not) my skin is shiny again. That's not surprising though, as the product initially absorbs all the oil (and moisturisers at the same time), but then my skin starts producing more oil. If I'm not wearing make-up, I can reapply the product and it works again- but with my skin that would require applying it every hour!!
Still the best anti-shine moisturiser I have tried, though.
