Rated 4 out of 5Â by Salam Great product
The product smells great, goes on smooth and absorbs quickly. It's very gentle and keeps the skin hydrated. Definitely a great product for oily and even combination skin, due to how light (yet effective) it is. The smell is absolutely amazing! Like everyone said many, many times, it does leave the skin with a soft matte finish, which is great. I don't give it 5 stars because: 1) the matte finish does not last beyond 4 hours or so. Depending on how oily your face is (mine can be rather oily some days), this will do the job, but do not expect it to keep you matte beyond few hours afterwards. 2) It has no SPF. Without SPF, you are forced to use another product on top, or below, which may add to the oily-ness, which defeats the whole point of using this. 3) Last but not least, antioxidants! Where are they? Modern moisterizers should have some form of antioxidant protection. I love and use Origins Perfect World (with SPF!), but I much rather pay more for Zero Oil (as it suits my skin type much better) if it had SPF and antioxident protection. Otherwise, this is "just" a good lotion - that's it. It does nothing more for your face beyond possibly clearing mild acne. Nevertheless, will consider buying again, but I cannot say that this is a "go to" product, as it needs additional supplements to make sure your skin is nice and protected.

I used Origins' Matte Scientist oil-controlling lotion until it was discontinued. Zero Oil was the recommendation given by the lady at the store in my local mall, so I bought some.
The mint and saw palmetto compliment each other very well, and it helps prevent oil buildup for several hours. I mostly use it for proper moisturizing in the morning and evening; it is perfect for when I don't feel like putting on makeup because I can simply apply the lotion after washing my face, and not worry about becoming oily just because I am not wearing oil-suppressants like foundation and powder. Also, with the insane heat of summers in Texas paired with the gradual oil buildup that can happen throughout the day, this product is a real ally when it comes to remaining presentable.
There are a lot of "all-natural" products that smell atrocious; thankfully, this is not one of them. The Matte Scientist lotion, despite its effectiveness, smelled "unusual" at best, and this new generation of anti-oil lotion has a more pleasing scent without being overpowering.
Though I don't seriously believe that buying each part of the Zero Oil line will really improve anything (it's clever marketing at best no matter how nice those products are), I have mentioned how much I love the lotion to my Mom and Dad so they can know it will be an excellent birthday present this August!
I wanted good lotion to suppress oil, and I got it. Five stars!

Rated 3 out of 5Â by lixz Being an avid oil cleansing method user for years I wanted a gentle yet effective face wash to ward off acne and decrease oil production. I normally use this in the morning and use my oil cleansing method at night. I've been using this once daily for 3 weeks. You do get a tingling clean-like sensation with use. My face does feel clean but it is not the best for make-up removal. It leaves my skin feeling dry so I make sure to moisturize. It has helped reduce oiliness. I had a minor breakout when I first started using it. My breakout left small blemishes and I haven't had a reduction in blemishes. Sometimes I use this with the charcoal mask which makes my face feel so smooth. Unless I see a significant change I would not purchase again due to cost.

I have horribly oily skin during the summer, except for a few minor spots that are so dry it looks like I'm shedding snake skin! This product worked like magic within the first 3 days of using it. My skin was so soft after using it I almost felt like I was holding my baby niece and rubbing her face!
Definitely worth the money if you have super oily skin during the summer!
