Works Depending on Skin Condition
When I first started the Acne.org regimen, my skin was extremely dry and peeling. I started to use this product and my skin felt so much better and moisturized. Now after a few months over a year, my skin is a bit oily so I stopped using it for a while. When my skin is oily it seems as though it clogged my pores. I prefer now to use it in the winter months. Hope this helps.

Made my skin breakout. Do not buy.
This moisturizer sucks and made me break out. First of all, when u put it on, it makes u look super sweaty and gross. Second, after it dries up it doesn't really leave a feeling of your skin being moisturized. Lastly, I used it on certain spots on my face where I get the most dry and I broke out. I only broke out on the spots I put the cream on! I guess it's really heavy and clogs your pores so it doesn't let me skin breath. But now I'm pissed that I have pimples because of something that was supposed to be beneficial.

You may be using it wrong
I use ponds cold cream, and I have an extremely oily face. This stuff has saved me from breaking out really badly in the summer from the humidity. What I do is massage some on my face every night for a few minutes then run water over my face and massage my face in the water. Then dry your face off and it's not so greasy but still feels moisturized without the heaviness.

Great moisture, clogged pores
I used this for a few days because it was at my Mums house and it was my only option. I was surprised when my skin felt supple and smooth after it absorbed, but whew! Does it ever clog my pores! I woke up the next day looking like I had freckles or something. :(

may cause breakouts
i have very dry patches on my chin ive been wanting to get rid of. I read a lot of good reviews on this so i bought it. It does feel very greasy on your face to be honest. I never breakout on my chin and since i started using this cream i began to get a lot of breakouts. Although full disclosure i have been a veterinarian for a year and the same week i started using this face cream is the same week i started eating meat so the breakouts can be caused by that. If anyone has any recommendations for lotion on dry skin but also is breakout free then please let me know thank you.

I find ponds dry skin facial cream to be very greasy on the skin and makes you look very sweaty. && it doesn't seem to cure the dry skin very well either. Only a couple of hours really.

worked well.
This is my 2nd tub. I bought it when I moved from the humid tropics back to Seattle when it was turning winter. My skin was drying up, like literal flakes were just coming off and couldn't handle the cold. My skin is combo, this worked well. Its super basic, I put it on at night and in the morning and my skin hydrated without any complicated stuff that most moisturisers claim to have. I've moved back to the tropics and I still use it. I must admit it doesn't absorb very quickly and has a very slick texture at first, but as long as my skin is hydrated I don't really mind it.
