It made my face more oily than usual, but I never broke out. However people react to different things in different ways so you might have to switch to a moisturizer for sensitive skin. Those usually don't cause break outs.
I actually have a skin disorder which is called Cutaneous Lupus which causes a lot of break outs because I am sun sensitive so I am very picky about what I use on my skin because I'm broke out enough. I haven't had any problem with this product at all! I'm not saying it may not break someone out but from my current use I have not had a problem. Hope this helps Liz :)
