I have struggled with an oily t-zone for years, always having a "shiny face" in pictures. Since I started using this about 5 years ago, no more shine! It is the only moisturizer that works for me.

I have combination skin that tends to get very oily in the summer.
Lorna B on Jun 12, 2015
Hi! What are the differences between this product, Sodium PCA Oil-Free Moisturizer, Blue Herbal Moisturizer and Ultra Facial Oil-Free Gel-Cream? Since I am looking for a moisturizer for summer. My skin type is combination (t-zone is quite oily, and the two sides of my face are normal).
Thanks :')

Best Answer: HI Hilda,
I have not tried the other products you're asking about, however I've been using the Ultra Facial Oil Free Lotion in combination with the cleanser for about 8/9 months now and I'm hooked.
In combination with the cleanser I've had no oil problems in my t-zone and I find the moisturizer absorbs quickly and lasts all day. Additionally, a small amount goes a really long way with both these products.
I have the same combination skin you described. I switched from the rare earth products to the ultra oil free products after reviewing my skin with a kiehls expert at the Bloomingdales on 5th in NYC.
I would say, purchase with confidence.
Hope this helps...

Do you think this would work for someone with a slightly oily forehead and normal skin everywhere else? Or do you think the Ultra Facial Cream would be better for me? My skin is mildly acne-prone. I'm really stuck. Thanks!
Beatrice C on Jun 15, 2012
Best Answer: This may be a nice product for your skin. I have a fairly oily forehead and nose (T-zone), yet very dry cheeks. The Ultra Facial Oil-Free Lotion is a nice moisturizer for my skin for use in the humid, warm summertime. The Ultra Facial Cream may be more appropriate for times when your skin is exposed to drier conditions. Since your skin may be acne-prone, consider obtaining samples of each to see which works best for you before purchasing. Good luck!

I really like this but I was told to put it on at night. I use the sunscreen in the morning. Is that correct?
John B on Aug 11, 2012
Best Answer: I used this product for a couple months morning and night - it started to make my face oily. I switched over to the Facial Fuel Energizing Moisture Treatment - I like this product a lot better and it also comes in a SPF version. Hope that helps.

Hello, Is that product non-comedogenic? I searched " non-comedogenic" and it shows up, but i can not find "non-comedogenic" on the bottle.

Best Answer: This product is indeed what it says it is. Won't dry your skin or cause break out. I have been using it for a few years and have been very pleased. Great product for a man's skin. We can't tolerate any thing that is the least bit greasy but this won't leave your skin parched either.

What is the pH level of this moisturizer?
A shopper on Feb 10, 2015
Best Answer: I'm not sure on the actual pH level, but I can give feedback on why I've been using the product for three years. By far the best mositurizer to my combination skin never leaves me shiny and my skin drinks it up.

How does this product compare to men's Facial Fuel?
A shopper on Aug 16, 2014
Best Answer: This is an entirely different formula. It is unscented and will not give your skin a greasy appearance either after applying or later in the day. It is really good for men with very oily skin who still need some moisturizer to soothe that burning feeling after shaving.

I read this comment in the review section and I am experiencing the exact problem.

I purchased this to use at nights with my Blue skincare line. Oddly, when I use this after my astringent, it balls and rolls up leaving little pieces of rolled up moisturizer on my face. If I use this product, then I cannot use the astringent before it.

I recently purchased the Ultra Facial Oil Free Lotion and Blue Astringent Herbal Lotion. The lotion seems to react and leaves clumps all over. Should I exchange the toner/astringent or lotion?

Thank you,
A shopper on Dec 25, 2012
Best Answer: I would exchange the lotion. I personally have never had much luck or liked the Ultra Facial line. There are several other moisturizers that I find are better and have used others in combination with several different astringents with no issues. I personally find the Rosa Artica to be one of the best I have used and does not make my skin oily. I do have oily tendencies and have found this to be great for mornings and night.

Does this product work for the summer? because i don't like oil on my t zone. i haven't found a product that gives me a matte finish all day. I used to use this bath and body product by pure and simplicity called burdock root, literally it was the best product but they discontinued it. I have been searching for an oil control lotion or anything, and i am hoping this is it. Is it okay to use another face lotion as well on top of this? because this doesn't have spf at all. i usually use neutrogena face lotion spf 45
A shopper on May 15, 2012
Best Answer: I would say it helps, but have not yet used it through the summer. I have oily skin and this adds enough that my face stays a lot less oily and I can still stave off the wrinkles. I got it mainly because it is fragrance-free and doesn't burn on my face. I am allergic to many fragrances, and it's one of the few creams on the market I can use.

You may also want to try the Calendula toner if they still make it... especially if you are also going to use another lotion to get the spf protection.

I woner if this lotion is mattifying? I tend to not like mattifying lotions because they usually makes my skin look dry even if I have oily skin. Looking for a not too heavy mousturising lotion that just does the job and is absorbed and doesn´t stay on my skin.
Maria K on Aug 9, 2012
Best Answer: Hi Maria,

I also have oily skin. I purchased a bottle of Ultra Facial Oil-Free Lotion a couple of months ago and I just bought the 2nd one recently!

It does do the job - keep my face moisture while not too much. My facial lady said that for oily-skin-type people, it could be dry inside and thus keep moisture is the key to prevent breakout.
