I love this product it’s great for summer time especially for oily /combination skin. I don’t like the fact that after a while of using it , my skin starts drying out and getting white flaky patches. I wouldn’t recommend it for winter use .

Ive been using this for years simply because I dont like my face being shiny and this definately gives you a matte look and extracts the shine and oilyness . Be careful about the amount that you use as it can leave white skid marks so rub it in well . If you are someone who sweats in the face quite easily especially in summer , this wouldnt be the best thing to use .

I'm not a fan of the powdery consistency of this cream. It leaves a white residue on the face and even if you think its blended out/absorbed in to the skin, more white spots appear during the course of the day.
I have extremely oily skin so I think I'm a good candidate to use this product, however it didn't work for me.

I can't really complain about the packaging, its cute.

While the price is great - the product is just so bad!

I bought this thinking it will be my #1 solution to my oily skin, but I was so wrong.

The cream has a weird lemon-ish scent and a strange powdery consistency. You have to prep well with serum and moisturiser, else this will just crumble right off.

You also have to work fast or you will end up hella patchy. I hate the way my foundation applies over top - it completely causes other products to drag and not blend out.

I also hate how it feels on the skin - everything turns kind of emollient after a few hours. I don't find that it controls oil at all.

Don't waste your money!

I used this when my skin had a super oily moment - it isn't great to use daily, as it can actually dehydrate your skin, but used on days when you REALLY need your skin to control itself, and your makeup to last, it's a lifesaver!
Plus it's cheap as chips, and you can buy it at Spar!

I was introduced to this product a long time ago. It is effective and came in very handy to me when i had pimples. It dried up my pimples and decresed the redness of my face. If you have really oily skin, this product will do wonders for your type of skin.

I really like the packaging. It's cute and compact. You can keep it in your handbag daily if you want to.

I don't know how to describe the scent but if you're familiar with the ponds products then this scent will be nothing new to you.

It controls shine very well on me but the effects don't last all day. By the end of the day I've got a slight glow up but I don't mind that at all. For health to show, one must glow ?

You have to apply it really quickly as it dries up quite fast once it comes in contact with air.

Make sure that you close the jar properly else you'll end up with dry cream.

Not suitable for sensitive skin.

It's reasonably priced and easily available. My only issue with this cream is that it doesn't contain spf. I'm a big fan of moisturizers that contain sunscreen. Im just one of those people who would rather have a shiny face that's protected than a matte face that's exposed to harsh uv rays.

My mum used to use this moisturiser and it dried her skin terribly which is weird because she has oily skin. Her skin became ashy looking and flaky and this just didn't do her justice. I decided to try it once my moisturiser was finished and I was very unhappy with the results. My skin felt taut and weird when I smiled and it left a whitish residue on my face. #unimpressed
