oil control gud or bad for acne?

Hi all!

I did a bit of searching around for a moisturiser.. I live in ireland so the recommended products are very hard to come by. but i found this in boots..

OC Eight Oil Control Genius

It says ...

"OC Eight is a unique oil control gel containing microscopic patented beads (Acrysorb¿) that continually absorbs sebum (the oily secretion of the sebaceous glands) as fast as it's produced, for up to eight hours".

Now i have heard somewhere that doing this will cause the glands to produce even more oil and cause even worse breakouts.

Is this true r is it a meth?

Otherwise this product will be perfect because its non-comedogenic, non-sensitising, non-drying and alcohol-free.
