my fav...5 stars...I've had oily skin since puberty, and even after being on a good skincare regimen for years my skin would still produce oil like craazy - I'm talking wake up, wash face, put on moisturizer, no makeup, and 30 minutes later I look like an oil slick....I did like both however I'm very weird about my face feeling like there is ANYTHING on it once it is cleaned before I go to bed and I could feel both of these especially since I sleep on silk pillowcases my face would just stick, so I dealt with having a dry face because I preferred being dry over my face sticking to my pillow.
