    Is this moisturizer so thick that it can clog pores and cause breakouts? Or do the ingredients help make it "acne friendly" if you will? I used to use the Shiseido Matte oil free face lotion but it has been discontinued.

    Asked by: Marie
    Hi Marie. While this moisturizer is non-comedogenic, if you are interested in a lighter option from our Essential Energy line, you might try Essential Energy Moisturizing Gel Cream: If you'd like to continue to use an oil-free lotion, try one of our Waso moisturizers, such as Quick Matte Moisturizer Oil-Free:

    Is this moisturizer stronger than the Waso Clear Moisturizing Cream? I love Waso, but my skin has been flaking off more since winter started and I am looking for something to address that. Thanks!

    Asked by: Jasmine19
    Hello, Essential Energy Moisturizing Cream does have a richer, silkier formula than WASO Clear Mega-Hydrating Cream. We recommend Essential Energy Moisturizing Cream for those who want to nourish dry skin, so it sounds like it would be an excellent option for you.

    Can I apply this under foundation makeup?

    Asked by: Vicky
    Hi Vicky, you can use makeup over Essential Energy Moisturizing Cream. To get the best wear from your foundation, we recommend waiting a few minutes after applying this moisturizer to allow it to fully absorb before applying makeup.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works With Oily Skin As a man with oily skin, I was looking for a quality moisturiser that didn't add any shine and didn't contain any parabens, BHT, and or mineral oil. This fit the bill and the performance is great. It feels light on the skin and is actually moisturising. The fragrance is gentle and it is quite pleasant.
