Texture: This moisturizer has a hit of runny consistency. It blends into skin within seconds without many efforts and leaves no greasy residue behind.

My Experience:

I have oily skin and during summers my skin tends to behave all the more crazily and as I already mentioned that I was on a lookout for a moisturizer that suits my skin during summers, this moisturizer proved to be a boon for my crazy oily skin.

The Cetaphil DermaControl moisturizer works great in summers and also has the added benefit of broad spectrum sun protection of SPF 30. This moisturizer goes very well under foundation. Most moisturizers that are meant for oily skin have a tendency to mattify skin and over the time makes skin stretchy and creates dry patches.  This moisturizer does not have any such mattify effect. It actually makes my skin feel moisturized rather than the stretchy or greasy.

It has not broken me out and is even prescribed by Dermatologists for acne prone skins. Also this speaks loud and clear about how good this moisturizer is for oily, acne prone skin.

Above all, this is a fabulous moisturizer for acne prone, oily skin that has the goodness of SOF and works in balancing skin.

  • Sinks into skin quickly.
  • Good for sensitive skins.
