I believe that the moisturizer works really well according to what it claims to do. It helps in deeply moisturizing the dry areas of my face while controlling the excess of oil near my T-zone area. This moisturizer makes my skin so soft and supple after I apply it. I have seen a lot of difference in my skin after I started applying this moisturizer regularly on my skin.
