Desert Essence Thoroughly Clean™ Oil Control Lotion -- 4 fl oz
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.

Works great for moisture without any shine
Leaves your skin looking healthy. This is great stuff, finally found something that takes away the dry without leaving an oily shine like some products state they do. I use it with the cleansing pads, amazing the dirt still on your face after showering. This one I use at night, not sure why except maybe has a little more scent. I have dry skin and don't like the looks of it, it's gross. This product is great, leaves your skin healthy and when I have a tan going I don't end up looking like an oiled up baked ham, just soft & dry but you can feel it on your skin but not see the shine, and it doesn't create zits, great!

I have used other Desert Essence products so I was comfortable purchasing this product to use on my face. I am not sure that I notice the oil control feature, when I use this product I feel I have the same oil output.
I have a very keen sense of smell, I definitely smell the tea tree immediately but after it sits for a second it smells a little like a musty dishcloth until it completely absorbs. Again I have a really good sense of smell so I may be hyper sensitive to it. I will use the rest of this but I will probably try another natural/organic/non-toxic facial moisturizer next time I purchase.

Too tick for my oily skin

Doesn't Really Control Oil
For those with very oily skin, you've been looking for that product that would just keep your face matte for hours. I don't think such a product exists. I recommend this product because this lotions has some great natural ingredients in it which makes it a good lotion for those with oily skin. All I'm saying is don't go looking for this to stop your oil production. I feel like happens by your diet and exercise, and drinking lots of water more than any topical product.
