I bought the oil control kit with the green items from Ole Henriksen because I had developed oily skin after using tretinoin (retinol) and that happens to about 10% where as 90% of the people using it get dryer skin. My skin was very oily and I thought this would be perfect for me and it did nothing to control my oil production and the toner did not get the oil completely off of my skin. I was not impressed so I don't recommend this if you are combination / oily. Also, it smelled like cut grass and the scent really turned me off and even if it had worked I would have returned it because of that strong nasty scent.

This moisturizer smells pretty good. It’s supposed to suppress oil in my face and it does that sometimes. During the cold weather where I live. It keeps my face mattified and moisturized just like how I need it. It leaves my face with a nice, smooth texture and I love how I can use it as a primer for my makeup and it does the job. I don’t have to blot my makeup through the day or anything when I apply this so it’s great. When applied, it has a nice cooling sensation and only a little bit is needed. Only about 1-2 pumps and you’re set.

The other side of things. When it’s hot outside, my face becomes super oily with this stuff on. It doesn’t sink into my skin instead it just sits on top of it during this time for some reason. It’s very strange how it performs differently in different weather.

Anyway, good product but it’s not perfect. I wanted to give this product a great review, but the bad outweighed the good when it comes to my oily skin.

So I actually have the trial size at the moment... and this is THE BEST. I have extremely oily and the biggest pores... not only does this keep me from looking like I can fry an egg on my forehead... you can’t see my pores!!!!! I will for sure be purchasing the full size and permanently keeping this in my beauty routine. ❤️❤️❤️👏🏼

High recommend. It's light weight. I usually use one to one and half pump to cover my whole face. I dab three spots on my forehead, temples, cheeks, and chin. The packaging is also nice. I like the pump on the bottle.

I just recently bought this and honestly i’m quite the fan. I have combination skin, so it’s tough to find something that works for my face and I don’t like to pack on the product and end up with an oily look. I use this in the morning as a primer. it keeps my t-zone oil free but also doesn’t try my skin out. it’s a perfect balance.

I love this!! It's so light but you really feel like you've moisturized. It's a bit minty. Not the best smell but it's mild and worth it because I got no shine all day !
