It was ok as a basic moisturizer, but it left my face feeling kinda dry and it also left it feeling kinda strained too, definitely not soft. But the worst part about it is that my face has a weird reaction to it: the first few minutes I put it on, my face would get this tingly, slight burning sensation and when I feel my face with my hand, it would be kinda hot even. It goes away gradually afterwards but it's not a very pleasant feeling, especially since I like my moisturizers to be cooling and soothing. I don't think it's an allergic reaction though since my face doesn't swell up or get red spots but it's definitely an uncomfortable feeling to have each time I put it on. As for reducing acne, it didn't really have a noticeable effect, but the only thing I can really vouch for is that it did reduce oil on my face as said earlier, maybe even a little too much.
