W Lab Sebum Out Moisturizing Cream Review:
Firstly, I would like to address the name of the product, moisturizing cream. To me it is more like a gel, which actually was a very nice surprise, since I tend to find most creams too heavy for my oily and acne prone skin.
The consistency is very light and spreads easily on the skin. I would describe it a bit tacky and it does not dry very quickly. The packaging is nice and clean with fresh colors. The size of the product is good, not too big and not too small. It is easy to carry around for a sleepover or business trip, but at the same time it won’t run out in a few weeks.
The product has a herbal tea tree scent which is quite strong but personally it does not bother me. When I use it in the evenings, I find my cheeks sticking to the pillowcase. So you might want to make sure you have at least 30 minutes in between applying the product and going to bed.
I also find this moisturizer adequate under my foundation, but again, it does take some time to settle on to the skin. If you apply foundation too soon after the moisturizer, it might be a bit hard to lock the foundation in place.
Overall it is a pretty decent moisturizer! I will be purchasing it again, due to the low price and overall performance. It does slow down my sebum production and it is a great addition to my acne fighting skincare routine!
The only downsides are the tackiness and long absorption time. I would recommend this product especially to people with oily and acne prone skin. It is non-irritating and not too harsh, so I could say this is OK for sensitive skin as well.
If you are super sensitive to fragrances, keep in mind that this does have a herbal scent to it. Nothing too overbearing though. If you have dry skin, it is better for you to go for something more moisturizing.
