Couldn't Get Past the Sour Smell
A friend gave this to me since it wasn't working out for her; she has sensitive skin, but I don't. However, I do have combo-oily skin and was on the hunt for products that controlled oil, reduced shine, or had a matte finish. This product did just that, even under a light foundation with finishing powder, but these benefits didn't last very long before I started seeing shine come back when I checked 4 hours later. My makeup looked better for longer using a Clinique moisturizer instead.
I would have continued using this moisturizer anyway just to finish it, but the most off-putting thing about the Cetaphil moisturizer more than anything was its odor; it smelled a little bitter, a little sour. And it was practically brand new! I'm not sure that it was supposed to smell that way, but I just couldn't deal with it on my face let alone the unimpressive oil control. Glad that this bottle was just given to me, but I see why my friend regrets spending the $14 she did on it.
