I really like using all of the Philosophy Products, and I'm always looking to try out new lotions and facewashes that sound like they should work well. In the past I used the Philosophy Never let them see you shine scrub, and it does work really well to keep your face from getting oily. I tend to have combination skin, and this helps keep it from getting too oily throughout the day. I normally use this face scrub in the morning, and you only need to apply a small amount of the scrub. After using this face scrub, I put on Philosophy's Hope in a Jar. With the combination of this face scrub and the Philosophy Moisturizer, my skin stays moisturized and oil free. Sometimes if you let your skin get too dry that's when it gets oily, so these two products are the perfect combination. The only negative is that this product is a little expensive, but I think it's really worth it. When you buy their products online, there are typically discounts and free samples available with your purchases. Side Effects I don't have any sensitivity to this product.
