Desert Essence Thoroughly Clean™ Oil Control Lotion -- 4 fl oz
Good face lotion
This is a good lotion. Doesn't break me out and moisturizes well. Absorbs really well. I don't think it does a very good job controlling oil though as I still have a problem with that. I ordered a second tube of this so I tend to continue to use it.

Disappointed, Not Oil Free
I assumed when I ordered this, that because it is for combination and oily skin, that it would be oil free. It is not. It has glycerin, peppermint oil, tea tree oil, and I think some other kinds. The smell did not bother me, as I have used hair care products in the past with tea tree oil and I find it kind of refreshing. When I first apply the lotion, my skin is matte and soft. But after 10-15 minutes, my skin starts to look shiny, and after several hours, my face is a glistening gooey shiny mess. I really wish that this was oil free, because I think it would be more effective. I switched back to my Neutrogena oil free moisturizer for combination skin. I might use this sometimes for a moisturizer at night, or a daytime moisturizer in the winter when I stop using the oil free moisturizer because my skin just needs a little bit more.

Great oily skin moisturizer!
I am 60, but still have a oily t zone, and this is the perfect moisturizer for that area! It is a very generous amount, and you only need a little bit, and it absorbs quickly!

This does exactly what it says it should! I like that it controls shine on my face but is still very moisturizing. I'm not sure how this will work with the heat of summer but in winter, it is perfect for my combination skin. The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is that the scent is a little strange, but definitely not a total deterrent. A little goes a long way so this should last a long time.

Didn't work for me
Tried it for a while, really disappointed. I'm a 30-something lady and my skin is acne-free, but oily as heck. My skin, no matter how much I blot it, needs blotting about every 2-3 hours to look normal. This product didn't work for me at all, in fact, adding THIS product underneath my makeup routine (or light application of sunblock) procedure-- I now have to blot my face twice or even thrice as often as before since I started using it! Didn't work at all, actually made my skin worse; it seems to activate my oil glands into hyper-drive. I have to say it was a gamble that didn't pay off. Money burned.
