I have acne prone/very oily skin. For years, I could put about anything on it, and it was a trooper. It took any chemicals without a whimper. I assumed oily skin meant it was the Jet Li of skin types. It could take anything. I was wrong.
Fast forward to current day, my skin has become hypersensitive. I cannot use anything that has benzoyl peroxide, retinol, or anything remotely harsh without breaking out with redness and/or broken capillaries. My dermatologist had said it appeared I had Rosacea. I've tried all different product lines that were made for sensitive skin, but found that they were not made for sensitive/OILY skin. The moisturizers were always too thick and because of my skin's sensitive nature would make it break out.
This moisturizer is VERY light. It didn't sting when I applied it. (That's a true tale tell sign..if it stings, throw it out. I've wasted too much time trying to stick it through with a product thinking it would stop stinging in time.) This moisturizer was good from the get go, and didn't make my oily skin feel heavy. I use it in combination with La Roche Posay's Toleraine foaming cleanser - making it an awesome cleansing/moisturizing pair.
