i don't know how, but this made me oiler. i have extremely oily skin and this was my first time using this company and i heard nothing but good things. i was excited to not look so greasy. it didn't break me out or anything, but it felt more moisturizing on my skin than anything. i had to go back to my regular cleanser and use this when my face is feeling dry. it's just weird how it did the opposite for me and i spent so much money on this.
