Rated 5 out of 5 by smmpei from Leaves skin feeling fresh I was recommended the Effaclar line at my local Shoppers store and have been using it ever since. I have combination skin- oily on my forehead and nose but very dry/sensitive on the sides of my nose and cheeks. This lotion works well for both and doesn't leave your face feeling too oily or too tight! I use this, the toner, and cleansed daily and it's the only thing that has helped clear up my skin! Only downfall is the packaging, I have to cut the top of it off to get the last of the product which is a pain!

Rated 5 out of 5 by kk3030xx from FINALLY The short version: the product is effective. It does exactly what it claims to do, has a neutral scent, is not harsh on sensitive skin. 10/10 would recommend to anyone with oily/combo, sensitive skin which may or may not be prone to blemishes. Cons: is fairly expensive (to me, I'm still a student), and you do not get a whole lot of product. For the skincare enthusiasts: I have fairly problematic skin (oily/combination, dry patches, clogged pores, prone to blemishes, redness...you get the idea) so I've been looking for an effective moisturizer for a long time. I've tried countless products over the past several years, but none have been very effective. Some did not leave my skin looking as oily as others, but also did not noticeably improve the condition of my skin. My face would look oily almost immediately, without fail. My dermatologist recommended La-Roche Posay (among a few other less expensive brands) quite a while ago and I was reluctant to try it at first because it seemed pretty expensive for the amount of product you get. After trying some of the the other recommended brands and not seeing results, I finally caved and bought this (along with the effaclar duo+ and toner) and I am SO GLAD I did. It was worth the cost. After only a couple of days, there was a noticeable difference. Much less shine, and my skin looks more hydrated without looking oily. I find that if I use a VERY light layer of translucent powder (Marcelle has a really nice one - its hypoallergenic, not very expensive and you get a lot of product for the price) after applying the moisturizer and treatment, my skin does not look or feel oily for the rest of the day. After 12+ hours, I can see a bit of shine in the t-zone, which is the most oily part of my face. A quick touch-up will get rid of it, although by that point I'm usually ready wash my face anyway. If I do not use a translucent powder, I do notice a bit of shine after a few hours. Its nothing compared to the amount of shine I would normally have with any other moisturizer or without any product at all. I've only been using it for a short period of time, so I think that with regular use, my skin will continue to improve.

Rated 5 out of 5 by VancityGal from Doesn't cause breakouts! This moisturizer was recommended to me in store and I have been buying it ever since. I have oily combo sensitive skin and this is the first moisturizer that hasn't caused cystic acne along my jawline. My skin is clear and soft! I just wish the packaging was better as it's difficult to get the last bit out of the tube.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Kidnextdoor from Very Good Product !!! I’ve used this product for 3 months now. It works very well. I just wish there was a bigger size. The 40ml doesn’t last very long .

Rated 1 out of 5 by Cindyp08 from It sloughed off! Application was easy and I visibly saw my pores shrink but after the product absorbed into my skin and I put makeup over it, it began to slough off. It appeared as though I had eraser bits wherever I touched my face. When I returned it, the rep said my skin wasn't oily enough? I thought that was very odd. Unfortunately I won't be using this moisturizer anymore however I love the effaclar line... Specifically face wash and acne moisturizer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gennytigg from Great moisturizer!!! I've tried so many different types of moisturizers I can't even count. I have sensitive skin Plus I'm very irritated by stuff it's greasy or has strong smells. My dermatologist recommended this line and this is the absolute best moisturizer in the world

Rated 4 out of 5 by Barbara777 from Keeps oil at bay So glad I gave this a try in store with a recommendation from the shop assistant, it was perfect for my acne prone skin during the humid summer, it hydrated my skin without becoming an oil slick

Rated 5 out of 5 by Regina from I LOVE IT so I just purchased LAROCHE-POSAY products for my oily and acne prone skin, and they gave me this as a sample. I used the effaclar foaming gel, serozinc, and the effaclar duo (+) global action, and this moisturizer. MY SKIN FEELS SOOO GOOD and it has just been two days of using this product, my acne started to stop, when I usually have it in a daily basis, it controls my oily skin throughout the day, and I honestly so satisfied with every laroche-posay products.
