Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this moisturizer I have been using this for 4 years now and I love this moisturizer. I have always been afraid of moisturizers because I work outdoors, I sweat a lot, and I have a very oily t-zone anytime I wear anything (even sensitive or gentle products) I always end up breaking out. This moisturizer really works for me. While I'm not sure it minimizes my pores, I do think it is mattifying so they appear less noticeable. It might not work for everyone with oily skin, but it's perfect for me. I use it with the Rare Earth Daily Cleanser and the toner. Please bring it back! I need to get some more and it's been out the last several times I have checked.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product, poor bottle design I loved using this lotion with the Rare Earth cleanser. My skin felt so soft! The only downside: after 2 months of using this product, the pump in the bottle stopped working. I have at least 1/4 of the bottle left and it’s inconvenient to have to take the lid off to get any lotion.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great purchase I’ve been using this product for years. I’m very satisfied with this product, I use it for a pore minimizer and my pores are the best they ever been.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First moisturizer that actually helped! My skin gets very oily throughout the day, and I’ve never found a moisturizer that has been able to reduce or minimize this. I bought this moisturizer about a month ago on a whim, and was extremely surprised at how my skin felt on the first day of using it. I use it every morning and night and my pores are smaller and produce less oil. I can’t imagine using anything else, this actually works!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE THIS I love this lotion. In 28 years of life I've never found a daily moisturizer that I can actually use every day that doesn't make my skin oily/shiny. I have normal skin but it's sensitive and most moisturizers are just too much but this one I put on every night after face wash and toner and right before bed. I LOVE IT. My skin is perfectly normal--not dry or oily--and it's definitely evened out the color and pores on my face. It even seems to have lightened the fine lines on my forehead. Huge new advocate this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from really works I have very oily skin, and this product really does do it's job of moisturizing and leaving my skin with a perfectly matte finish. It also leaves it feeling so soft. I love that I'm able to wear it alone and it lasts pretty much the whole work day, or it's a good base to layer under makeup. I also have very sensitive skin and am always wary to try new products but didn't have any issues at all.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great product, poor packaging I have been using the rare earth line and am pleased with the results. This mustriorizer is the perfect weight for daily use and as a man, I appreciate its lightweight and matte finish. However, I have now gone through about 6 bottles and the same thing happens every time. About half way through the bottle, the pump stops working so you have to open the bottle, pull out the hose (that is covered in product), pour out what you need by hand, (although bc of the consistency, it usually comes out in globs with way too much), and then scrape back what you don’t need... not a big deal the first time, and not a big deal if it was just the last of the bottle, but it’s nearly always 30-50% full once the nozzle/pump typically fails. They need to offer this product in a jar like the mens’s age defender cream and it would be great. I am disappointed that after a year of the same issues Kiehl’s continues to sell it in subpar packaging.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not as Good as used to be I used to love this lotion. It made my face so matte and so clear. But the one I just bought makes my face matte for about half an hour then my face becomes really really oily. I think the ingredients changed because it was not like that before.
