Reviews For Thoroughly Clean Oil Control Lotion - Oily & Combination Skin

Based on 8 Reviews

Smells amazing, works great!

At first I wasn't sure of the smell, but after awhile I realized how much I love it. It smells like tea tree, hazel, and a hint of mint. It also works well at moisturizing my face without making it too oily.

- Avery


I tend to have mildly oily skin (used to be worse, but I've learned how to balance out the oil by using oil). This moisturizer doesn't leave my skin feeling soft, but rather incredibly dry - like so dry that I simply cannot put use this moisturizer on its own. I have been adding in very small amounts of argan oil or jojoba oil. Since I've been using only oils as moisturizer for a long time now, I am willing to give this a chance (while used together) to see if it has any added benefit. But on its own, I would not use it. Might just be my skin!

Not as great as the cleanser

I have combination to oily skin, love the tea tree cleanser, and thought I'd give this a try. It does the job as far as mattifying for the first few hours but has a tacky feeling by the time I cleanse at night. And that's without makeup or going to the gym (sweating)! I try not to discount a product until I've used it for a month, but this lotion is just not worth the uncomfortable film it leaves on my face. I had to give it two stars and shelve it.

- Niquita


No complaints, use it every morning. I am prone to breakouts and his particular lotion had not been bad for my skin.

Like it - but is it working?

I really like this lotion. It has a unique scent that I like. It keeps my skin moist but I can't really tell if it helps with the oil control in my case. However, my T zone is super oily...

The Holy Grail of Moisturizers

I'm an esthetician and have used spendy, top-of-the-line products for years with no luck for my acne-prone skin. I am thrilled that I gave this moisturizer a chance, because my skin has never felt so calm and balanced. I love the list of pure, natural ingredients, and the way it leaves my skin feeling clean and refreshed. Thank you Desert Essence for delivering a great product, and thank you Thrive Market for making it so cheap!

- Casey

Great for oily skin

I have very oily skin but this lotion really helps with that. Some would think that oil for oil sounds a bit off, but when you don't leave your skin over dry and use natural oils on your skin it does the opposite. It keeps your skin from becoming oily. This particular moisturizer is fantastic!

- Nicole Wendell

Use it as Toner

I use this as my toner. It is a moisturizer, but because it's made from natural oils, it makes a fantastic toner as well. It evens out my oily skin and regulates it so I'm no longer sporting a greasy looking face at the end of the day.
