Rated 2 out of 5 by Looploop This is not anti shine
The lotion is decent but I found that it does not provide anti shine protection as it claimed. Also it goes on sticky so any type of dust or tissue will stick to your face. Case in point I had to blow my nose after putting this on my face and bits of tissue got stuck on my nose. I had to scrape it off my nose! At least the odor is decent.

The Technology used in this product is impressive. Can't say I like the way it feels on my skin, nor do I like the smell of this product; however, it works! Oil is basically bottled up and dissipated from my skin - like magic!
Rated 4 out of 5 by Laina Well it works
I guess I should first state that I am a female with combination to oily skin. I started putting this on under my makeup but I DO NOT recommend this. After a few hours of wear, it made the makeup look really weird and oily. I guess if you're just wearing it without makeup on top it would be good. However, you may need to blot or reapply it. After applying it on my oily spots once a day for a few weeks I did not notice any change in the amount of oils in my face or in the appearance of my pores.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Bryshaw Smells like a Big Mac
Kiehls. Please reformulate this product. It smells like a McDonalds Big Mac. The scent is just awful. But the product works well if you have oily skin. It truly does. But the hamburgler will try and steal your face if you use it.
Rated 3 out of 5 by DSLR Unpleasant aroma
While the product performs as advertised, the aroma is generally unpleasant. I won't be buying it again as a result. I'll revert back to the Facial Fuel SPF 15. Worth a shot, but they have to improve the aroma.
Rated 4 out of 5 by jwill0509 I originally sought out to refresh my stores of the Facial Fuel moisturizer at Nordstrom when the grooming associate exhorted me to try a new product that excelled at controlling oil. Like most men who use high quality grooming/shaving products I was very skeptical because I've read that most oil control products are excessively drying which can result in an overproduction of oil on the skin. The beauty consultant in the Nordstrom Kiehl's section could not have been nicer and had me try this product on the back of hand and I could feel the effect immediately!
After listening to her knowledge about the product I read the ingredient listing (checks out with me!) and decided to upgrade to this moisturizer even though it is a good $10 more than the flagship Facial Fuel at about the same size. The price aspect isn't too bad because I've noticed that I use a lot less of this product every morning that I would with Facial Fuel because a little bit really does go a long way. I'm an oil control convert!
Rated 4 out of 5 by M0851 I mean it works...
Basically gets the job done.
Immediate results, but the results aren't that amazing.
Hopefully they make a bigger 5oz bottle.
And it's pretty expensive, but I didn't find any cream out there that worked as well as this one did.
They say 24 hours, but it's more like 8 hours.
I mean I wish if this could do more, but it takes out like 60% of the oiliness and hydrates the skin, so I guess it's pretty good.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Seth Incredible- absolutely worth a shot
I was a bit skeptical when I first ordered this product. I have always, and I mean always, had a huge problem with oily skin around my t-zone. However the rest of my skin has a dryness issue, so clearly I need to use a moisturizer. So I've always felt that the moisturizers I have used have increased the oiliness around my t-zone and made shininess a bit worse. This product is really amazing, I use it every day (with a heavier moisturizing cream at night) and I always have just enough skin hydration without greasiness. Now I will add one problem I've had while using the product- I work in a restaurant, so obviously there will be some grease in the air. After a long time working (i.e. running around frequently and always being on the go, not to mention the condition of the air in a steakhouse kitchen) I will occasionally still have SOME greasiness in my t-zone. However, I don't fault the product for this as I feel that the circumstances are somewhat unusual. The only reason I mention this issue at all is because you can't expect this product to work miracles, I certainly don't. But it DEFINITELY works better than any other moisturizer I have used before; nothing has met my needs as well.
