Natural Acne Solutions Daily Moisturizing Lotion
I was expecting this to be more of a matte finish, but instead it leaves my skin a bit dewy-looking. It doesn't necessarily feel greasy, but it doesn't quite absorb completely either. It smells very nice, like lemon meringue pie. It hasn't caused any new breakouts, and it feels very hydrating. I don't like it under my mineral makeup, so I only use this at night. During the day, the acne toner gives enough moisture on its own. Only half a pump is needed - about the size of a pea, so the bottle will last a long time.

Burt's Bees Natural Acne Solutions Daily Moisturizing Lotion is such a great product. I rave about it. My skin is super dry, I would love if my skin had a little oil so that there was at least a little bit of shine to it so it doesn't look so dull. However, I have dry skin that magnifies my acne. My skin peels around the zits and takes forever to heal. Most moisturizers were "eh." They worked for an hour or so but then my skin was dry again. Some moisturizers even "burned" and made my skin worse. I happened to notice this product and thought I'd give it a try. First thing you notice is the how there is such a natural smell to this product. It is not overwhelming and is very clean. Warning: if you pump too much, it will be hard to rub into your skin. I would start with a half pump. Don't keep pumping it like you would other moisturizers. A little really goes a long way in this case. After you put it on, your skin feels a tiny bit sticky but it's totally normal! Your skin will love how refreshed you feel. It has definitely helped with my acne. I normally get a lot of acne on the "edging/framing" of my face and around my nose. It has totally cleared up. I feel even comfortable enough to go out in public without my make-up on. I can't even remember the last time I did that! Your skin will stay moisturized all day long until you wash your face in the evening.

Learn When to Use
First off... I have combination skin - Oily, Dry, Sensitive, Breakouts, Blackheads...
I have tried almost everything under the sun for moisturizers and this product seems to work well for moisture. (I'll get back to you on the acne prevention.)
At first the size of the bottle and the $ you spend for it may seem a little off.
~ BUT I recommend 1/2 a pump of product for your face, and a full pump for your face & neck.
~ As for those who are having trouble with it staying sticky or just not soaking in...
TRY using it just After you shower. If you take a warm/hot shower your pores will open up more and be more apt to soak in the moisturizer.
~ I used the product last night after washing my face, and it did feel sticky on my face through the night and in the morning. But after applying it this morning just after my shower, here I sit 3 hours later and my face feels "as soft as a baby's bottom". There is no stickyness and Little oil around my pores on my nose and chin. (But this is quite normal for my Huge pores.)

Hydrating but Heavy
Makes my skin feel supple feeling, dewy look, and hydrates. Having combination skin its a love/hate relationship. I think it helps control my oily forehead as I can't feel oil there mid-day. YAY! For my it does take time to absorb but its nice for winter time.
