I have Oily/Combination skin(oil on my forehead,noes, and chin--dry cheeks). This is a very moisturizing lotion! After application,It absorbs into the skin pretty quickly, but leaves a dewy feeling on my face. Previously, I was using Spectro Moisturizing Lotion for Combination Skin, And it would leave my skin feeling tight on the dryer areas of my face (cheeks) and sometimes I would break out in hives. This lotion regulates my skin and the moisture is distributed evenly. Basically, This won't make your oily parts any oilier than they already are. Also, As the previous reviewer stated, it's a good idea to use an ALCOHOL FREE (Alcohol strips your skin,Thus making it oily) Astringent or Toner before using the Lotion. The sent doesn't bother me, I assume its the Witch Hazel in the product. My skin has cleared up quite a bit and I am very happy with the results. It's calming to the skin, and it has reduced breakouts.
