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...
