I like the scent and texture although it definitely has that greasy feeling that comes w/ alcohol. It clogged my pores and now I'm having the worst breakout I've had in a long time. My skin was mostly clear before using this. I also now have a large amount of milia under my eyes. I don't think I'll be using this again lol

Broke me out
This unfortunately clogged my pores and broke me out. It has bad ingredients in it like alcohol and fragrance.

It does nothing
I didn't see any effects of this moisturizer. It hardly even moisturized my skin and the same goes for its so called treatment of acne.

not sure.


greasy feeling
may have caused breakouts (due to heavy fragrance)

I normally use another salicylic acid moisturizer that I really like, but decided to try this instead. BAD IDEA. This didn't help reduce breakouts, in fact, I think it may have caused more!! I tried this product a few times, and I broke out shortly thereafter. without fail, every time. wtf. I think it's because of the heavy fragrance they put in. That's not cool. It also makes your skin feel very greasy, unlike similar products i've used. Bottom line, this stuff SUCKS. There are better salicylic moisturizers out there. Get one WITHOUT added Fragrence

made pimples more red
made my skin feel "oily"
didn't help my dry skin

i tried this a while ago and it seemed to work...but now my skin is very dry (because of the cold weather) and it just makes my skin look shiny and greasy :( it does not help my flaking...i feel like i have to "over moisturize"

+Makes my face feel smooth
+Has a refreshing feel
+Does not dry my face (it is a salicylic acid medication)


-Doesn't control acne on a swift basis

You probably should not get this product if you are looking for a swift and speedy fix for your acne. However, it did make the skin on my face feel smooth and refreshed. Even though it is a salicylic acid treatment, my face did not feel the least bit dry. So, if your acne isn't severe then I would recommend this salicylic acid treatment. I love it.
