BEST MOISTURIZER IVE EVER BOUGHT

I bought this moisturizer having never used any of the body shops products. I did have high expectations, and as an aesthetician I am always on the look for new products. I tried this one day before my makeup, applied primer, then everything else and worked 12 hours that same day and blotted & used powder maybe twice. I was amazed, and extremely happy. I also noticed that this and the exfoliator for oily skin have helped me get rid of my black heads on my cheeks! I am extremely happy, because no product has ever been able to do that! My skin looks the best it has ever looked, and the prices are AMAZING. I will continue going into the body shop, and I am hoping that I eventually convert to their products only! I love that everything is natural, and they don't test on animals! This company is truly amazing and has my recommendations to friends, family, and clients! Thank you body shop!

I purchased this as a moisturizer, but I was surprised to have different, yet pleasant, results. I have combination skin, and I started out using this all over my face. It didn't feel that moisturizing after being on my skin for a minute or two at first use. I now use it every day, and I will still say that I wouldn't (and don't) use it as a stand-alone moisturizer. However, once I learned that this controls my oily areas like magic, I began using it only where I had breakouts. The results have been great. This clears my skin like no other. Note that applying to wet skin rather than dry helps this feel softer. I also use Lush's tea tree oil toner, and both these things have cleared my skin greatly since I started using them daily. SO in conclusion, I believe this is more of a non-harsh oil-control for oily skin rather than a moisturizer for combo skin.

Great for oily acne prone skin!

Date:October 4, 2017
So to start, I have oily skin and never had acne until my 20's when I got adult acne. I take two different medications and they really dry out my skin. For years I just let it happen, because those of us with oily skin tend to take any dryness we can get. Recently I decided I need to make a change and add moisturizer to my routine. I found a solid serum from Lush that I LOVE for ending my nighttime routine, as I use my strongest acne med at that time as well. It's great, but takes a while to soak into my skin.
However my problem was finding a moisturizer to use in the mornings after my skin routine. My skin would look great from my overnight care, but after I put on a couple of dermatologist-recommended moisturizes (cerave and eucerin) I tried...it was horribly greasy. I then tried a couple of Lush's lightest moisturizers but they still didn't work for my skin type. Since I'm so oily AND acne prone if I get too oily I start breaking out bad in big whiteheads. Which is what happened when I tried their products. I was getting really disheartened and didn't know if I'd ever find the right moisturizer for me, but did more research and discovered "gel" moisturizers. They are supposed to be better for oily skin. I stopped by The Body Shop the other day to give it a try. (As you can tell I like to get my skincare products from cruelty free shops!).
It seemed pricey for the amount. I knew a little would go a LONG way, but it's a lot to chance when you don't know if it'll work. (Whereas my Lush products I could sample). I took the plunge and bought this and I have to way...wow. It's really changed things for me. It goes on easy and absorbs into my skin fast--and then it leaves a matte finish! I do not wear make up so how my face looks is how it's gonna be for the day. I couldn't be happier. I really love this product.
For the record this is my morning and night routine if it helps anyone in deciding if this is right for them
Morning:
Cleanse with Fresh Farmacy (Lush)
Toner (Thayer's Rose Petal/Aloe/Witch Hazel)
Acne medication
Seaweed oil-control gel (Body Shop)
Evening:
Cleanse with Coal Face (Lush)
Toner (Thayer's Rose Petal/Aloe/Witch Hazel)
Acne medication
Full of Grace solid serum (Lush)
So far this is helping to get my skin back to normal after the previous moisturizers wrecked my face.

Not smell like natural but tangy one, I really don't like this strong smell. Also, I haven't seen any long-last oil-control effect, disappointing series products.
